Android 4.0 ICS update for LG Optimus 2X now available - read the full textLG Optimus 2X owners in Europe can finally breath a sigh of relief! After nearly half a year of it-will-get-it-it-won't-get-it drama, the former LG flagship finally started receiving its ICS update. The firmware version of the update ROM is V30a. It brings the Ice Cream Sandwich sweetness,...

Here in Holland I had the update available to ics . The update program from LG said that I should update and I thought yes. The update went smoothly. And after the reboot it was still on GB 2.3.4 with v20s. So I hope LG Holland can tell me wen it is available for dutch lg's o2x with vodafone network? But every question i ever asked to LG Holland was we don't know anything about our products.

You can manually flash V30A. I haven't tried it yet because its still downloading the 700mb file at 300kb, but I will report back if it works. My phone troll-updated to V20H here in Ireland, and I can see the V30A update on the support list but I have no idea how to install it from there.

This is a joke from LG.
I tried do update, and the installer tells me that a ics version (v30a) was available.
Ok, lets'go!

But, after the upgrade processs... wait, the version installed was the v20r ???

Now, the installer tells me that i have the v20r version installed, and there are no updates avalable...

But, where is the v30a ???

WTF LG!!!

> In reply to Bugslife @ 2012-12-08 05:02 from tD5Y - click to readbut ur iOS6 for iphone4 is half baked update since many features from actual iOS6 are missing on the iphone 4(and no its not beacause of outdated hardware or annything).only iphone 5 and i guess iphone 4s has complete features of iOS6

plus when it comes to functionality and things you can do with android,even gingerbread is better than iOS6.
since many new features on iOS6 already existed on gingerbread..some even were there on froyo.

still GB has lot of features which are yet to come on IOS

I suggest you get help and quick.

Anyway, this is typical for LG, I highly doubt things will improve with the Optimus 4X or G.

As a former 2X owner myself I'm wondering if this update will finally fix what was probably one of the most buggy and laggy phones outside of a Symbian device (because the gingerbread update did nothing to cure it)

LG should have skipped 4.0 and better worked on 4.1. Anyway good luck for LG owners.

You guys optimus 2x should be happy. My atrix 4g still gingerbread!! Same nvidia tegra 2, and motorola owned by google but failed to even upgrade only to ics after promosing so many months! This thing which makes me reconsider to buy another android. It seems android phone set only for 1years only and it will be outdated phone. Stupid google. As far as price and fiture to price, i prefer android than ios, but ios is set for using more than 2 years usable. Look at my iphone 4, after 2 years using it, still can be update to ios 6. Google must learn about this! *unsatisfied android user which use iphone as well

If he says that LG is more than friendly to give out the source code as soon as it is ready , I belive him . Also , as much as i could understand , it is not LG's fault for the long wait for it , but nVidia's . Plus - today the firmware was seeded , and a couple of hours later the source code was out too . Don't blame LG , blame nVidia ... google how friendly they are about doing anything about releasing driver source code for their chips for Linux . For God's sake Torvalds is bashing nVidia for their attitude http://www.theinquirer.net/inq...lasts-nvidia

Some people look silly when they ditch LG. I know they are some of the worst while releasing updates but really those people who said the update is here 1 and a half or even 2 years later should get a life. ICS is just a year old. No need for drama.
Btw: Android 4.2 has been released but just the Nexus devices have it right now. It seems like we are a couple of months away to see that update on other devices, so who gives?
