No it can be upgraded beyong ics 4.0.4. Advice for all lg 2x users. Change your charger because bundle one is crap and it's because of charger you experience reboots. It's since begining and nobody even bother to check charger, NOBODY!!! install juice defender ultimate and disable refresh on all apps in custom mode it will increase your battery for about 40 hours idle but most of all install custom rom. This phone can work better with custom rom based on kitkat but the main problem of this device is cortex a9 which is totaly crap, all a9 is crap

I upgraded my phone to ICS 4.0.4, First the phone was constantly restarting. THE SOLUTION, i googled a startup manager apk. So i Used it to prevent some apps from starting when the Phone boots. Besides, i manually visit apps settings in the Settings menu to stop some apps.

If you dont like the LG skin, then dont use it.
Stock LG phone was ok - nothing too bad
Installing Cyanogenmod 7.2 is the best thing you can do to this unit - I still use it daily
I've got Runkeeper, Whatsapp, GOSMS, default launcher as well as the other default apps and it still works fine. MinMemoryManager allows me to constantly have (user defined) 100MB RAM free to avoid lag.
Unnoffical Jellybean (TonyP 1.04 with Kowalski Kernel) runs ok too, although there feels like more emphasis on performance of the OS rather than the apps - so i switched back.
Have yet to flash a KitKat ROM
The word "crap" is the best description for this phone. It's very slow, lagging. May unexpectedly reboot. User experience - forget it. And watch your ears when plugged earphones as this shitty device will not automatically reduce the volume. Do not recommend to buy it to anyone. I'm so disappointed that I would never buy any LG device no matter it would be a TV or a washing machine.
