Any word on JB for LG Spectrum?
Not sure about an official JB update, but I read about CyanogenMod 10.1 for it.
Android 4.2-based CyanogenMod 10.1 M2 builds available for 21 devices
Let us know if you install this.
I'd like to take the time and learn how to do that, and see how it works.
Anything new about JB (Official) for Spectrum?
No. Not that I've heard of. I can't imagine that LG or Verizion will be investing any official resources on getting that out for us.
I bit the bullet and figured out how to install CyanogenMod. It was a bit confusing, but after I got it installed, it's been easy to keep it updated. I'm running CyanogenMod 10.1.3-RC3 (9/5/13), which is based upon Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean.) It runs much better with a lot more features, and quick gestures to be more productive. I would highly recommend it for the Spectrum.
However, I am hoping/planning to change to the LG G2. For some reason, it is not knocking the HTC One or the Samsung S4 off their pedestals (by reviewers), but to me, it is further ahead than both of those. I'm waiting to see what the Moto X and Nexus 5 are like before pulling the trigger, though.
The two biggest things for me about the LG G2 are the 5.2" screen in a foot print that is about the same as the Spectrum, AND the 3,000 mAh battery.
The two concerns (however small) are the non-removable battery and lack of timely updates by Verizon for LG products.
