LG Canada: no Ice Cream Sandwich for the Optimus 2X
posted by Nick T. / Jul 27, 2012, 4:27 AM
Today, the limbo continues with a statement from LG Canada posted on Twitter: "The Optimus 2X will not be receiving the ICS upgrade. The original upgrade announcement was a general statement issued from HQ."
Sony Xperia tipo, for example, has a far less capable 800MHz single-core processor, yet has Android 4.0 pre-installed.
Perhaps LG is just more focused on promoting its newer Android smartphones, some of which do come with Android 4.0 out of the box, instead of supporting its "legacy" devices, but that is just our guess. LG Optimus 2X owners, you might want to start researching what that CyanogenMod thing is all about.

Its Nvidia's fault. None of the Tegra 2 AP20H phones has received ICS as of yet. Probably due to Nvidia not releasing the drivers.

Yes, I remember reading about how devices with Tegra 2 are SoL since nVidia deems the platform dead and won't release any of the coding. Though LG has shown in the past that it won't update certain phones for whatever reason.

the problem is phone that is not updated officially to ics don't have a fully working cyanogen mod 9 due to lack of driver.

Even if there's an ics update coming for lg phones, it'll take another one or two years to reach the phone. Htc, samsung, sony etc...almost completed updates and the the only news we hear from lg camp is that, this phone wont be updated, that phone wont be updated.

I'm extremely disappointed. This was their flagship less than a year before ICS was released. But that's old technology enough to forget about that phone, their money is made with that, why bother? How about keeping customers? We've been lured into new technology prowess (first dual core phone to hit the market) to then be left aside like if we had chosen the cheapest piece of hardware. I will make sure to follow articles on new LG phones and comment on how unreliable LG is with updates, to help new customers not to be fooled like I was. Being lazy should not be deemed profitable.
