Upgraded my O2X to 4.0.4 yest. Got to say the UI is amazing. LG have done an amazing job. Super fast. No lags.But yeah facial lock is missing. And no in-build chrome browser. Loving my 2x. Would have been a lot better if they releases it a lot earlier. My last LG for sure.!! They do release excellent devices. Optimus G kinds. But without software upgrades phone becomes useless.!! "G" is yet to receive its 4.1.!!

Hey guys, does anyone knows when is going to be released to America?

Or where can I download the firmware to flash a carrier lock phone?

I updated the phone manually with v30a wich is for Romania. Is very smooth but in multitasking have lags...
With Gingerbread 2.3.4, Antutu benchmarks scored 5700 points and with ICS 4.0.4 i have 6500 points...

I have tried to update using smart flash, it started well, but it stopped and tell: can't read magic number.
Anyone have an idea what's the problem?

Gave my lg p990 a new lease of life.. it really needed this ICS upgrade to show me what its capable of :) I am loving it ..

I wasted a lot of my time upgrading at home.. but i feel its easier to take a bike ride to LG service station and pay 100 odd rupees.

Bangalore one is at Jayanagar 4th block..

I have updated my P990 to ICS today. The version is V30b.
But I dont see option for face unlock anywhere in the settings.

Anyone knows whether LG has provided Face unlock with the ICS release?

the customer care says i need to visit a service center and will be charged for it...bla bla bla
the online update should take another 5 to 6 days to get functional

I've found on a forum a link to an website which tells you which is the latest firmware update for your lg P990, based on your IMEI code. Adress is this: http://tools.enetsite.com/linker/

I wrote my IMEI code in this site and as result it sais that the latest firmware update for my v20s firmware is the v20E_00 firmware. LG Mobile Suport tool or with PC Suite IV said that i have the latest firmware. So, who knows about the credibility of that site? It is posible to be real?

If the ICS update is available in your country AND your phone is carrier unlocked:

1. On Windows, uninstall all LG-related software and drivers, then reboot

2. Download and install the latest version of LG PC SUITE

3. Remove microSD, connect via USB, the P990 is detected automatically, then just click update to ICS (30min update)
