T-Mobile G2X Gets The Android 2.3.4 Update

Last year, T-Mobile announced the LG G2X smartphone at the CTIA 2011. It is basically the T-Mobile’s version of the popular LG Optimus 2X. This handset originally runs on the Android 2.2 (Froyo) OS. However, the device was later updated to the Android 2.3.3 (Gingerbread) OS in July 2011. Sadly, the update was pulled, added back and then pulled again.

Now, T-Mobile is rolling out a new update for the LG G2X smartphone. The latest update bumps the LG G2X to Android 2.3.4 (Gingerbread) Operating System. This update will be available automatically via OTA (Over-The-Air) or you can even manually update it via LG’s website. It comes with Wi-Fi calling improvements, boot up fixes and more. Check out the complete changelog below.

T Mobile G2X


  • Random reboot/power off fixed
  • Device stability improvements
  • Wi-Fi calling improvements
  • Boot up fixes

The latest update is numbered P999-V21y and it can be easily downloaded via OTA (Over-The-Air) until May 14, 2012. After that, you can just head over to the LG’s website to manually update your smartphone. The size of the update is just 30.5 MB. If you do not get this update on your smartphone, then just go to Home > Applications > Settings > About Device > System updates and check for the update.

It is advised to backup all you data before updating the device. You should also make sure that your battery is fully charged, before updating the device. If you find any new features after updating your device, then do let us know in the comments section below. To learn more, head over to this page.

    google + apps added, like g+ and g+ messenger. play music was added as well as google videos. all new keyboard, downside are that the characters look a little smaller but another option for editing was add. car home app looks a little different but i wouldn’t really know because it’s barely ever in use.


    Since the upgrade they took zoom out of video recording. The camera needs more options. Make it fun

    I have successfully installed the latest update; LG G2X to Android 2.3.4 (Gingerbread) Operating System. I am now having problems updating my apps. It tells me that there is “insufficient space on the device”. My phone memory says: 5.22GB total with 4.03GB available. My internal phone storage says 1.22GB available. I do not have an SD card and I clear my cache regularly. Why am I unable to download all 23 recommended or manually download one at a time, any of my recommended updates for my apps? Thanks, Ralph

      this is a market problem i have had it many time when i was flashing rome

        If indeed this is a market problem, why did I not have that problem before the new update? I successfully downloaded several programs before the update. I updated them regularly and had no problems. After the update, I’m unable to download ANY updates at all. Market problem or no, it did not occur BEFORE the update. Thanks, Ralph

  • I’ve noticed my phone responds significantly faster, video mode has different settings for video quality, from full hd to qcif. Camera now has the option to select from 8 megapixels down, along with different scene modes as well as the addition of the Google Music app.

    Yes I am also having a problem downloading and updating apps. I get an “insufficient space” message. Could this be a bug in the new update?

    First, the upgrade did fix the random reboot problems I was having and seems to make the wifi calls better. However, besides the inability to update ANYTHING at all, when I am on 4G, every time I place a call now, there is a high pitched squealing in the recipients ears. EVERY time. I am forced to stay on 2G.
