to upgrade to kitkat, you need to root the phone, install a custom recovery (like clockwork mod or TWRP) then install a custom ROM (I have been running CM11 nightly with great success so far)

Am also facing the same problem can anyone able to provide a solution for this issue with us
Hi. I am using p880 since 2years, there is any software updates for my mobile. Battery backup is very poor. Hw can solve my prob.
Keepsmile, 08 Aug 2014Thank you so much as I thought to buy it. But, now no way1 complaint of a Phone that broke is no excuse not to buy something as theres a few million users so thats way below the normal failure rate.
Anyway this Phone is almost 2 years old now and even tho i love it and still think back then it was the best Phone there was for the money you should look further.
Tech had grown insanely fast and battery life has doubled.
most midrange phones now as as fast or faster and use less power and last longer.
I have lg p880 tamil fonts are not displaying correctly,what is the reason ,wht should be installed?
Phone goes completely mute when in call and there is also an increase in call drops recently ... anyone facing same issue.
I have LG P880.The problem with my phone is that when someone is calling me, the phone doesn't ring.I receive the call, but no sounds at all.Does anyone have the same problem? Or what should I do? Thanks.

My 4x is on 4.0.3 rooted
Running Beanstalk 4.4.4007 with iodak kernel v10 for 2 days now and loving it. Beanstalk is very customizable; allowed me to add NFC, Torch, and Auto-rotation lock toggles to the Quick Settings pull-down screen, while nexus users are still waiting for google to add such toggle (like the auto-rotation) to the QS on their phones (currently only shows up on tablets). Even the power menu is customizable, allowing to add things like screenshot, screen recorder, etc.
It can be a bit confusing at first, with so many options available. For example, after flashing BS and GApps, I found I have three launchers (Trebuchet, Nova, and Google). Not a bad thing. I tried each one and quickly sided with Nova Launcher. Wouldn't have known what I'd be missing had I chosen to flash CyanogenMod 10.1.3 stable :)
last note, I also flashed the Stock LG/JB Camera app ( http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2288917 ). Only the front-facing camera doesn't work in it, but works with the stock camera in Beanstalk.
Simply, Beanstalk ROCKS!

Very smooth and the dark theme (Dark stalk) really is super awesome! Turned almost all my light themed apps into dark ones and the dark ones became black. So insanely many options and settings I can hardly believe it, must be hundreds of extra settings
root your o4x and instal beanstalk rom android 4.4.4. Everything works fine and there is no any lag.

The other camera have problems in darker conditions on all roms I have tried, including the original though it may have been slightly better. It is indeed Cyanogenmod, official 2014-06-14 nightly, quite stable for me with few bugs. I guess it's all down to preferences so calling the original rom crappy was maybe a bit unfair, just because I couldn't stand it (the lockscreen, the light theme, the notifiction bar, the lack of customization options etc). It's still a shame LG won't update the phone even though it doesn't affect me, as I wouldn't have used it anyway. Not everyone want to void their guarantee after three days as I did.

Works fine , lags here and there but everything works. What kind of 4.4 kitkat did you install? Some generic cyanogen mod? Does your front camera work fine in Skype, it is not too dark?
Good phone as long as you don't depend on LG for updates, I only had their crappy rom for 10 days before moving on. Now I'm on Kitkat 4.4.3 with ART enabled which makes it quite smooth. I didn't install any google apps either, I'm better off without their battery drain. The developers have even introduced OTG on the phone, though I haven't tested it yet. Only tradeoff is that MHL doesn't seem to work but I don't use it anyway.
AnonD-276390, 23 Jun 2014LG P880 Optimus 4X HD - Error with the camera and bad customer service from LG
I want to pu... moreHeres some things you can try.
-take out the battery for a minute?
Go to apps > all > Camera > clear data and cache. (backup photos first as im not sure it will or will not delete your immages as ive never tried this).
- Download a other camera app from the play store to make sure its not just the camera app that is broken.
Use this one only if your comfortable with it.
-Open dailer and type in 3845#*880# a new hidden menu should pop open.
Then go to the following:
Device test> All Auto Test Menu-Full > Camera Test > Camera Preview.
Here you either get a error or a crash in which case you take out the battery or you see the camera working and you press the center square to focus and take a photo.
Then press pass if the photo was taken correctly.
It will automaticly start taking a video and make some bleeps. and after 7 or so seconds show a video play sign. Press play.
If it replays fine the hardware is alright. If these tests fail its possible the camera module or rom have a error.
So if that does not work theres 1 more thing you can try as last resort.
- Backup your entire Phone and do a factory rest (settings > back-up and reset > factory reset)
If that fails You need to return it.
BTW after you hidden menu use your keys will keep lighted up.
you need to restart the Phone to fix this. Goog luck and let me know how it ended.
LG P880 Optimus 4X HD - Error with the camera and bad customer service from LG
I want to put my claim because after 6 months of buying this phone on Amazon.com, from one day to another, the photo camera broke down, I have not beaten and I have not installed anything.
I formatted my memory, also utilisé the factory restore option but so far the problem continues.
5 months ago I wrote to Amazon.com and received no response, then I wrote to LG and they told me to go to a customer service office, ask them the address and received no more response from you.
Here I leave the video not to buy this product from me I do not know anything about LG
