LG Optimus 2X Ice Cream Sandwich Rolling Out In Europe!

LG Optimus 2X owners, here is some good news for you. The Korean company has finally got its act together and has started rolling out the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for O2X owners in Europe and other regions of the world. The update comes more than an year after Google unveiled Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

LG had released the ICS update for the Korean version of the Optimus 2X quite a few months ago, but took its own sweet time to release the update in Europe. The v30a ICS firmware includes all the goodness introduced by Google in Ice Cream Sandwich, along with smoother performance and LG’s latest launcher.

Optimus 2X owners can update their handset to Android 4.0 right away by using LG’s update tool, but many users have been reporting problem while using the app. For most O2X owners, the app re-installs the v20a firmware instead of upgrading the phone to ICS (v30a).

The Ice Cream Sandwich update marks the end of software support for the Optimus 2X from LG. So if you are expecting that LG might just update your handset to Jelly Bean, I am sorry to break your heart, but its not going to.

The Optimus 2X was the world’s first dual-core smartphone, but the way LG handled the software updates for the handset, it left a very bad taste with all O2X owners.
