    Introduction post........check! :)

    Hi guys,

    Okay, I own the LG Optimus 2X on the Tesco Mobile network running 2.3.4, & I am having serious issues, this phone was originally running 2.2.2 & everything worked great. But since the upgrade, the GPS no longer works, well, it does for about 30 secs, the phone randomly reboots, even in the middle of calls, I get random signal loss, & the wifi is dodgy too. Luckily, the handset is still under warranty, so it has just been sent off to LG-UK for repair. They assure me they can fix it, but I'm not so sure as they are denying there is a 2.3.4 problem. I have read in different places that the V20g firmware is the problem......? :(

    I have asked them to reinstall 2.2.2, but they reckon they can't as it's been upgraded! :(

    What I'd like to know is, has anybody else had issues with 2.3.4/V20g............?

    I have an Optimus 2x (P990) which was originally supplied with Android 2.2.2 and everything seemed to work well. I upgraded to Android 2.3.4 and started to have problems with the GPS taking ages to get a fix and failing to find satellites. After contacting LG Support they asked me to send it back. When it was returned to me after many weeks they had re-installed 2.2.2. The GPS certainly seemed to be much better until I re-installed 2.3.4 when the GPS problems returned. I suspect Android 2.3.4 although I don't have any of your other problems.

    This software issue is not new to carrier provided Gingerbread firmware. A custom Gingerbread ROM (mostly the CM-7 versions) will usually have this problem fixed.

    The Android on this phone is not carrier provided. I bought the phone unlocked. Would the same problem still occur with LG provided firmware?

    It looks to be a firmware problem from what I'm reading.

    Another bug in the update: Try going to menu/settings/applications/choose the "All" Tab/find the Market-PlayStore app/select it/clear cache and data.
    If this doesn't help the you might think about downgrading then read up on installing a custom ROM in the All Things Root sub-forum.

    I did a factory reset on my 2x today and it seems to have fixed the GPS problem as the GPS is now working quite well. I got 9 satellites and a fix in about 30 seconds. :)

    Yes you can, when the phone starts up hold the power key and the volume key down.
    This will reset your phone to factory settings.
