LG Optimus G official Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2 update starts rolling out... in Korea
posted by Daniel P. / Jan 11, 2013, 6:12 AM
If history is any indication, chances are that it will be at least a month or two before the update hits US carriers, but if you aren't afraid of rooting and unlocking your device, you have probably already graced it with a bunch of custom JB ROMs, which the XDA-Devs thread for the Optimus G on Sprint and AT&T are brimming with anyway.
Still, official is official, and we'll have to wait and see for the first stability and improvement feedbacks to start rolling in, before someone cooks the Korean JB ROMs into something for the American masses, extracting any tasty morsels of useful software LG might have loaded in there. Hit the link below for the official JB ROM mirrors.
- Display 4.7" 768 x 1280 pixels
- Camera 13 MP / 1.3 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro, Quad-core, 1500 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 2100 mAh(15h talk time)

They have started rolling 4.1.2 update now, God knows when Optimus G users will get jellybean 4.2 update. If the updates is so slow for their flagship phones then we can only guess the condition of other smartphones from LG........... LG should start hiring some good software engineers now...........

4.2 is not good. Maybe they want to skip 4.2...

Pretty minimal change in 4.2 really. I just cant figure out a way to use lockscreen widgets to improve my experience. Plus it doesnt run as stable on my N7 as 4.1.2 did. My Optimus G runs like a champ on ICS. Project Butter is a waste on the S4 Pro; but Im looking forward to Google Now.

who is "they" for rolling out 4.1.2? from my understanding, only korea has released this update & sprint/att wont see anything for a month or two. as @unscrew said, the only custom roms that have been released on xda or other android forms are modded versions of ics stock. i think there are some devs close to getting cm10 running though... well see. only thing my lgog is missing is photo sphere. ported & patched versions crash even with correct file perms...

This is great news. I love my optimus G. My only beef is the battery is not the greatest. Actually it's far from the greatest. If LG want to compete they have to make these updates. Also some new skins for the messenger that don't look like s**t would be nice too.
