Download G2X Gingerbread Now Instead of ‘Summer’

 

 

Life’s Good, especially if you have a G2X right now.  No, the G2X Gingerbread update is not coming OTA right now (just wait) but you can download Gingerbread for your G2X right now.  What you’ll need is a data cable, a Windows computer, your G2X and this LG Updater.  Should be quite simple.  I can understand if you want to wait for an official announcement and OTA update from T-Mobile, but for the rest of you, have fun!  Also, this will break root, so there’s that.

    OK, we have 221 comments on this subject. Now after it’s been available for a few days, has it resolved the problems on the G2X or not?  I cannot comment on it due to the fact that my G2X had no problems. I can state that the G2X of mine is better, faster ans smoother now with the update. Comments?

      still waiting for a comparison between the OTA update compared to the LG update. anyone?

    • OTA soon?

      I had my G2x since release day and have never had overheating but it has done random reboots, but only a couple of times total. So far, no reboots and only a smoother, faster phone. Definitely recommend the update and excited for the official one if there are even more fixes (camera app).

    I don’t know about you guys but ever since the upgrade my phone force closes a lot. and before my g2x wored fine but it freezes and force closes alot. Ahh

    so just got off the phone with LG support. I can’t update because it says I already have the latest version and they said to wait and call back on Wednesday….because there’s a glitch in the updater. un-f’ing-believable…

    • Wrwicky

      See my post from yesterday. installing the updater re booting, reinstall the updater, installing the drivers with the phone disconnected, then connect phone and update worked for me after the same problem of having the updater say I was already up to date.

    it says everything on my phone will be deleted why is that? 

    • Gingerbread!

      It says that, and I backed up everything that I needed just in case it did happen, but when I upgraded I lost nothing at all (except for having to add the shortcuts of some apps to my home screen that were on my SD card instead of internal memory – but that’s really not a loss.) Battery is so much better! The camera app is disappointing though, I really hope they put a better one in for the official OTA release

      • Ritter

        So, if anything is on the internal memory, it most likely will still be there after the upgrade.  I’ve got pictures I can’t easily move at the moment.

    • Ginger_nilla_comb_froyo

      Yea it says that but i upgraded it and like Gingerbread! said all i had to do was add angry birds and some other shortcuts to my home screen but they were still on my device just had to add some to my home screens and that was it, everything else was there and im loving although i cant wait for the OTA release to see if they give us back the lg camera app cuz i really liked that

    Mine is still rebooting after the LG update “fix” and the camera app sucks. I was having less reboots before the update. I tried a custom ROM while I was rooted and that was the only thing that fixed it. Im honestly debating whether I would rather have this crappy buggy Gingerbread update or go back to the Ultimate G2X froyo rom that worked flawlessly and maintained the amazing camera app.

    What does “break root” mean?

    • DK

      i believe it means if your phone was ROOTED after you complete the LG update, it will no longer be rooted.

  • Hank2300

    Awesome! Worked flawlessly! The OTA update is taking a ridiculously long time. I’ve been hearing that it’s coming for over three months now!
