The biggest thing that make me nervous is that the LG doesn't send any kind of news about this update! This make me so nervous! A little thing i want to know from LG: when it will be available the update! But LG seems to be so mute!

In Australia they haven't still updated it. I was about to throw the phone away and buy sg siii before Christmas and then I thought since Australia and Europe have similar standards why don't I follow this procedure It took few attempts to get it to work once it finished and it restarted its like a brand new phone my friends were amazed how fast it is now. I haven't managed to test everything but the main problem areas that I had was wifi and being generally slow have been fully resolved. It has been working perfectly for 4 days let hope it stays that way. Lets hope that LG Australia releases it soon if you can't wait and have nothing to lose maybe try the above procedure.

Please someone tell me if you managed to install ICS on LG Optimus 2X, because my PC Suite is not working and I need to know if it's working for someone at all.

Hello from Romania! I have v20s firmware and when i try to update the software says that i have the last version of firmware.

BUT, when i go to settings and select About>Updete software ... it says that NEXT Check for update is 13.12 2012.

So, i will wait until then. I will come back to inform you guys if i will get the update to iCS.

Finally, my phone has got a good update. But have tried to update it to GB for the past 1 year from Froyo. Couldn't do. Let me try this too.

The LG Driver software is totally waste and its not like a one time setup. Some drivers are not recognizable.
