    Is gingerbread out yet (the official rom) for the 2x? I just bought one, waiting for it to come in the post :) It won't be branded, if that makes a difference.

    hey guys, I emailed lg canada yesterday and asked about the updates for the optimus 2x. this was their reply:

    Thank you for contacting LG Electronics

    Unfortunately at this time we do not have information on upcoming updates. Should an update become available you will be notified that is it available for installation.

    Now that I received my phone it seems fast enough anyway.. I take back the cyanogen statement, it is fine without it and I can wait for the eventual release of Gingerbread :)

    I came from a HTC with 2.3 on it, it's really not -that- much better. There are a few nice little extras in it but hardly worth getting up in arms over not having :p

    Well, CM7 based on 2.3.4 is a bit old now, the 2.3.5 versions have more features.
    Install the G2X version then, the WIND O2X is a P999 rather than a P990.

    When I plugged in my O2X into my PC and used the LG Software update tool, it gets to 4% and asks me to take out the battery and try again.. :( I have a feeling this is Gingerbread waiting for me to install it but I can't! :(

    It's not gingerbread, that much I can tell you.

    This has happened to alot of people some of them send there phones off for repair :(

    Oh well, cm7 is gingerbread + not LG's (let's be honest) rubbish version of android. I suggest everyone looks into it if they are brave :) It's very fast, but bluetooth audio doesn't work (only thing as far as I'm aware).

    I understand some do not want to take the risks associated with custom roms, but with LG's seemingly broken software updater, will anyone ever get gingerbread if it's impossible to even update? Even then the updater could brick your phone and force you to send it in.. probably more risk involved than a custom rom! ;)

    Haha I agree, I think installing a custom Tom with nand backups actually takes less time then the updater tool ;)
