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.

    Download and install went pretty smooth on mine. I didn’t lose patience at the “S/W UPDATE” screen because I could view the progress bar in the Windows LG app at the same time. I did get a little worried after the phone restarted and stayed at the G2x screen before booting up completely. But, remembering how long it took for my Vibrant to boot up after its update, I followed atl2thabay’s advice and “chilled.” So far, so good, but then again – I was one of the lucky few who experienced no problems with the phone pre-update, other than horrid battery life.

  • Gingerbread!

    Gingerbread is amazingggg! Just updated, took 19 minutes for everything. Lost no data at all. Noticed one difference though – in the browser when I am on a page that is a full version and has flash ads I seem to not be able to scroll up and down when the site is “fit to page.” Scrolling works immediately once I zoom in a little. Not the biggest problem (since the phone is absolutely perfect and moves much faster than before!) but curious. Anyone else seeing this?

    • Gingerbread!

      Edit: Looks like it’s a java thing. If you uncheck Enable JavaScript the problem goes away, as the ads go away. Is this a bug that needs to be fixed or is there an option somewhere to allow scrolling when java is on?

    So how is this an official update from LG? I click on the link to this updater and get rerouted to a mediafire website. The LG G2X support page of driver updates when you get to LG does not have this driver listed. Please advise….. Eagerly awaiting to jump in.

        refurbished phones have a different model number so if you have a refurbished phone its a no go through the update tool.

          I have compared both phones the original and refurb, they
          are same model and all the same software build. So I don’t know how they can
          tell the difference.   

        • Jomaxwel

          No it isnt a model number you can see by looking through the menu. Its seen through the update tool. the original model # is LGP999DW and the refurbished model # is LGP999DWP. So yes there is a difference in the model number.

      Call LG and you silk need to send your phone to them. They give you a 1 year warranty.

     I am so glad I will be receiving my Sensation tomorrow. I have had the G2X from the day before launch and because I had a replacement I can’t even update it to ginigerbread. The refurbished model has a different model number. And they striped the update down with no LG camera included also. That was the only reason I didnt go with CM7. Hello HTC and good riddens LG.
