I had to reinstall Chrome and it worked fine afterwards. The phone was rooted before the update and I rooted it after as well. It works like a charm. I hesitated with the upgrade after reading about "lag issues", but after installation, the phone feels faster. All the lag I had before is gone. I should add that I have about 100 apps installed and that I performed upgrade after unrooting and uninstallation of AV software.

does anyone in here had absolutely no problem after upgrading to jellybean? and is is true that if you experience issues after the update like phone being (laggy crashes and overheats)that all we need to do is a hard reset? and it will fix everything?

What the hell ..O4X is one of the best lg's smartphone now it gets the worst update,they are ruining their reputation. still no words from LG about fixing this update we waited more than 5 months to get JB update now it doesn't make a point for the O4X lovers.

IN JB, RAM will be lesser by 150-250MB.... free RAM is just 360MB or below in JB while in ICS its 450-550MB. Better not update till the firmware update is released.

Try to clean up some space in your PC, the insufficient storage warning is for your PC. Try to have at least your used internal storage + 3giga free space at your PC. It work for me ^ ^

PS: I spend almost a month try to figure that upgrade warning, hope it is okay for you

Its just horrible, after update so much bugs, when someone call only black screen and cant do anything. Lag, use 800 mb of memory (500 before). Battery enough only for 1 day (4 days before). Ive made reset, but nothing have changed. Have to find way to downgrade back to 4.0.1.

After I updated my 4X on 4.1 JELLY BEAN i started having a problems. When I call someone my screen went black and I cant hang up, or do enithing with that phonecole. Battery life iz last shorter than before. Camera das not work in spaces with less light...
Sometimes i wish that I had never update my phon.
But it is sad that that update cams from LG himself...
It is not professional! ! !
