I have updated my 2X to ICS and it looks nice. Unfortunately LG did poor job with this update. The phone freezes from time to time and there is a problem with the WiFi that drains battery in hours.
So, if i update from xda developers site, i will have the same firmware with all LG mmodifications? I will can update to a new firmware in case LG will make some minor updates to ics? Thx!
I tried to update my phone with LGMobile Support tool but nothing. In the Customer Support MENU, on Support Model said that LG P990 have update for Romania to v30a.
My phone is not locked to any carrier but when i try to update said " Software update is not supported for this model" ! WTF??? I am from Romania and the phone firmware is v20s - Gingerbread 2.3.4.
How you guys updated the phone?
Niceface, 17 Dec 2012For all those who has updated their optimus 2x to ics: please mention country too! Thank you!Im from Norway,ics has worked fine for me,a couple of times the phone has shut done by it self,but I really like my new phone,no need to change it now!!!!
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!
For all those who has updated their optimus 2x to ics:
please mention country too!
I updated my phone on 13 of december. Works great, i dont want a new phone anymore. I started to look for note II but now my optimus just works, im happy with it.
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 http://androidromupdate.com/2012/12/09/upgrade-lg-optimus-2x-p990-to-official-android-ice-cream-sandwich-v30a-update/ 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.
Hi, i live in Australia with software version V20f. i went onto the update tool and when i connected my phone, it said my phone is up to date. My phone is unlocked so shouldnt V30a be available to me.
I'm back here to tell you that today i finally updated my P990 to ICS.
I just tried the LG tool again and this time the update worked well.
The phone seems ok, all functions working well, even GPS.
The version installed was V30a.
I confess that i was almost givin up of running ICS on my 2X...
That's all folks.
When ICS will be available in Lithuania. Still get message that my phones software is up to date. wtf???
I have a 2X P990 factory unnlocked (with V20S firmware).
V30A is not yet available in Spain.
Does enybody know when the ICS is going to be available in Croatia? Matter of days, months, years??! :D
