OK, I will probably be flammed to dealth but here it goes.
I want Tmobile and LG to release an update to apply Google 4.0 (ICS) to our G2X's.
I am hoping to use this thread as a public request for update, kind of thread. I dont want it to be about how to root and apply a custom Rom or to be about how we all feel that TMobile and LG has left us in the dark with a phone that doesn't work properly and has software issues. We all know the problems we are having with the official Rom and can talk about those issues elsewhere. I want this to be a thread that all G2X customers can simply reply/Sign to and state that they would like to have a Google 4.0 ICS update for thier G2X's.
I'll start it off.
Anyone that wants or thinks Tmobile and LG should update our G2Xs to ICS, please reply to the thread. Lets show them how many customers are really out there and how important we really are. Lets bump this to the number one thread. Surely they will notice us at some point.
I would like Android ICS on my G2X Please.
I also created a thread on the LG Forums for the exact same thing. Here is a link to that thread. I am hoping to get enough views and whatnot that someone somewhere will pressure the power that be to release an update for our poor phones.
It won't make any difference, but put my name on the list.
Great point on releasing ICS for the G2x. As of now we have no official information from LG if they plan to make the 4.0 update available for the G2x. There are many rumors online right now, and you can find some pages saying it will and other's saying it will not get the update! I can assure you T-Mobile has not forgotten about our G2x users! We want every customer to have the best possible experience on their phones and we are always looking into new updates and software features on the devices. You can feel free to follow us on Twitter @T-Mobile or on Facebook as we will be posting any software update news there! If you have any specific concerns you would like assistance with on the G2x feel free to let me know and I will be happy to help you!
We will keep you posted on the updates as they become available!
Thank you Regina, please help get us noticed. maybe sticky this thread or or keep sending it to the higher ups, stuff like that should help get us noticed.
It is really important for those of us that cant afford to buy new phones every few months just to get an Operating System update.
LG has made a statement today that the Optimus 2x (not specifically the TMO G2x version) will get ICS. LG has said they will announce a timeline for an update sometime in December.
The full statement from LG:
LG confirms today that the Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) OS will be initially available for the following high-end LG smartphones which were introduced this year: the Optimus 2X, the Optimus Black, the Optimus 3D and the Optimus LTE. We are also continuing to evaluate the ICS OS to determine whether it is compatible with the functionality, features and performance of other LG smartphones to make the ICS OS available on as many LG smartphones as possible.
In December this year, the forthcoming upgrade schedule and additional specific models for the ICS OS upgrade will be posted on our LG Mobile Global Facebook page (www.facebook.com/LGMobile) and on our local LG websites. Please stay tuned for more updates from LG.
You're very welcome Nate! I can assure you we will absolutely keep you posted! I know these phones are expensive and we will do our best to make sure it is as up to date as possible and continue working with LG!
That's awesome news! Last time I checked I hadn't seen any official communication! But it looks like the update is in the works! Keep following us on Twitter and Facebook and as soon as we have the update ready to go we will start sending it out!
I sure hope we get it. My G2X does not appear to have as many problems as others report but it still suffers from lag and slowness at times. Additionally, it sure would be nice to have the LG Camera back to the way it was before the gingerbread update.
+1 LG should provide Ice Cream Sandwich for the G2x.
Add me to the list for desiring ICS.
I upgraded to GB almost immediately after buying the G2X, so never had the experience of the original camera app. A high rating on the G2X camera was one strong reason I chose this phone, and I have found it rather limiting to use. I'll add to the wish list a better camera app as well.
I would like to receive ICS on the T-Mobile G2x.
Dino, I too have found that the native camera app is very poor. I really hope that Tmobile and LG push this update to us. Would be nice.
Count me in
