Niko, 20 Aug 2012Did you recently lear "noob" as a new word? Then talking about the S2 with the most ... morewhen did I even say the S2 ics was buggy ( though it was which was provided by Sammy) and I personally feel gingerbread was a more balanced os than ics though its not Google's problem the manufacturer didn't optimise it to fit perfectly into older devices... thats why I flashed to custom roms even when I was greeted hello noob by xda and even though I dono much about commands and other technical things I would recommend to flash custom roms way before waiting to get optimum performance... and Xperia are special bcoz they are the only bunch of devices to get ics than selective treatment by others
Arif, 21 Aug 2012I hope LG get taken to court! They've falsely claimed to provide ICS countless time, yet they ... moreDon't be soo negative!! There's a user on XDa-Developers who works at LG and says that ICS will be available at the beginning of September!!
Here's the proof: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=30513350&postcount=1
ye and the fact that are just getting ICS right now, while others are already enjoying with..
Just hope it's not false advertising! And that this update out soon.
Raju sesha, 20 Aug 2012only few noobs will be holding to update their phone to official buggy ics from LG probably ma... moreWoW, you must be a great software developer to know that :O
Still I'm happy my phone is finally getting ICS, better late than never :)
A few days back the news came out that two of the most popular smartphones of LG’s Optimus series, LG Optimus 2X and LG Optimus Black, will not get updated to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but turns out that it was all talk.
LG seems to be keeping its promise regarding the update for both the phones. Today got to see something special at a retail mobile shop that confirmed that the LG Optimus Black will certainly be upgraded to Ice Cream Sandwich.
Today at a retail shop, we saw a sealed box of the LG Optimus Black’s retail unit which had a sticker pasted on it that read “Android 4.0 upgradable”. The LG users can take a sigh and can finally feel like moving along with the world.
Anonymous, 20 Aug 2012okay 0,0 dont drag s2 on this thing and ics on s2 isnt buggy (mine is international ver) , and... moreSII International version does have a crappy ICS with ICS features missing, so bad in fact that many downgraded to GB. I had it, and I hated it. Seems to me Sammy made it crappy on purpose to push people over to SIII, not a tactic I like. So i got myself a RAZR instead.
And Niko didn't bring it up, Raju did.
We were also asking for a bug fix for the SII, and Sammy said "no - not likely". So let's hope that those who still have that ol' lump gets a proper Jellybean update, with all features.
Anyways, on this topic, let's hope the BLack gets ICS, and to have more and more devices over to Android 4.* in general.
I hope LG get taken to court! They've falsely claimed to provide ICS countless time, yet they haven't. I'm not going to spend anymore time writing this message, LG aren't worth it. :(

Sony's xperia phones is not much to alk about either, average at best.
only few noobs will be holding to update their phone to official buggy ics from LG probably many of them could've exchanged it for an s2 or nexus devices... by the way Xperia are cheap devices...?? are you a noob holding optimus black with 2.2 when we Xperians may get 4.1...
the optimus black used to cost 350 euro, it's unacceptable that they won't release an ics update. we should be talking about jelly bean not ics. the only cheap devices that will get ics are xperias.
Thank God I got my 2x free, by a carrier courtesy, and Thank God again I could by a G Note in exchange of LG...
Anonymous, 20 Aug 2012there is no publicly and officially available 4.0.0. The earliest version is 4.0.2. And do not... moreListen I am far from a fanboy I am saying you a fact.I have 4.0.4 at the moment. And how many manufacturers will do jelly bean to the phones that were released at the same time as SGS2 were? is this a fanboism?! if yes you are behaving like one. LG is famous for being sluggish and unconcern when it comes to software/firmware upgrade and that is the fact. you don't have to go far enough only read here what people say about it.
my lg optimus black still stuck in 2.2 froyo :DDDD never ever am I going back to LG. NEVER!!!!
