While the story of the T-Mobile G2x continues to take us on a roller coaster ride a discussion going on over at LG’s official forums gives us hope that a Gingerbread release is realistically coming soon. We emphasize “soon” because one of the forum moderators gives what we hope is an educated guess stating that “…i’d be really surprised if it was more than a month out” regarding the G2x Gingerbread update. Obviously we hope that the discussion forum moderators are somewhat in the know and that this isn’t just a way of placating an unhappy user base with an unrealistic timeframe.

We’ve been told that update has been coming “soon” for quite some time and with LG promising an update within a “few days” and that going by the wayside we hope that this moderator’s timeframe is more than just a guess. Fingers crossed.

    To be honest I thoroughly love my g2x! I would be sick to have to replace it with something else..it has been almost perfect except a couple minor things that I’m sure the update should cure.. As for all the bad lgs I feel bad for those people because they are missing out on a great device! I really hope lg and tmobile get this resolved faster than it seems they intend to! Until then ill keep my fingers crossed my lg doesn’t become plagued by these cellphone demons!

      Same here. Despite my rant from yesterday, I have a G2X that is virtually perfect. Easily over 100 apps loaded on it, no lag, GPS works perfectly and locks on in just a few seconds, no reboots (and I’ve owned it for 2 months now), virtually zero screen bleed (not noticeable at all), so no complaints from my end. However, my tirade from yesterday was for all my G2X brothers and sisters who are suffering from maladies that can easily be remedied. The fact that even the early custom ROMs fixed these problems (with a few exceptions) showed that a simple update to a GB release would resolve almost everything. Now, a very good phone with great possibilities, the G2X has been pushed aside while new releases entrance the public. Just a shame and a BIG lost opportunity for LG.  Once again LISTEN UP LG ——— if you can’t fix it yourselves, then hand it over to the developer’s community. They can fix it for you for almost free!!!!

        The developers have fixed most of the problems with the phone. The battery driver is what they are focusing on now since i “terribly” written according to some. Wouldn’t be surprised if battery life increased to 1 day (24 hours) on heavy usage with the way things are going. I’m getting easily 2 full days of battery life on light usage with faux’s rom.

          can you please explain exactly in detail how to install faux’s ROM (with links)?  I’m at the point where i’m willing to do it.

        I replaced it with the Galaxy S2 and couldn’t be happier. It’s better and faster than G2X at everything except for games, but Galaxy S2 can still play Tegra 2 games with Chainfire.

        • Jimmy

          Where and how much did you pay for your SGS2?  I hear you only get edge speed on Tmobile with that phone.  Amazon currently has it sold directly from them for 672.  I am thinking about selling my G2X and getting that.

        • http://twitter.com/nraudigy2  

          Got from Amazon. Yes you only get EDGE for Tmo USA, but on A&TT you get 4G.

        • CactusCat

          I’d like to snag a SGS2 myself, but unfortunately, I live in a non-Galaxy S2 zone (The USA). Someday, maybe we’ll get some of that here in the US but for now its just wishful thinking.

      I’ve seen my friend getting just as frustrated over his Sensation.  His phone doesn’t seem to be all that it was cracked up to be, especially the laggy Sense 3.0 that he doesn’t like anymore.  I’m getting a replacement G2x via UPS soon because of the reboot/freeze issues, but when it works, the G2x still rocks!

    I noticed that too.  It’s not like all the reviews were bad.  Many people loved the phone..at least if they had one that wasn’t defective.

    Here’s another article on LG.  IMHO all this negative Net chatter does not bode well for the brand, nor the G2x:

    From Wireless Week 07/08/11 – LG Electronics today slashed its smartphone sales target for 2011 from 30 million to 24 million.
     
    The company’s latest high-end Android smartphones, the Optimus 2X and the LG Optimus 3D, have been met with tepid reviews. The company has faced stiff competition from the likes of HTC, Motorola and Samsung over the past year.
     
    LG has been unable to match the quality, consistency and distribution of popular offerings like the Samsung Galaxy S line of smartphones and tablets.
     
    LG is betting on the Optimus 3D to be a major differentiator among the growing crowd of Android devices. LG said it hopes to sell 1.7 million Optimus 3Ds this year. The new “superphone” boasts a 4.3-inch display, dual cameras and glasses-free 3D functionality.

      When does this lg super phone drop?

        AT&T has it listed as “soon” on their site.

    LG = FAIL!

    They rushed out this buggy phone just to get the world record of the first dual core phone.  They should get the world record of the most self rebooting phone.  I wish part of the FCC’s approval would be to field test each phone before they approve it.  Then they could reject it and not approve phones before it is released to the public.

    As the owner of a buggy, rebooting, non gps locking, LG G2X phone, I will NEVER buy an LG phone again!

    Tmo should give us G2X some kind of compensation for all the trouble we have had with this phone since April. Mine still has black screen a lot that requires me to pull the battery and reinstall to get it working. And of course, it likes to just restart on it’s own.

    Those who might still believe in LG products, check out this video I posted on YouTube.  It’s a recording of what was on the local news this morning.

    Seems an appropriate slogan for LG is “The Reboot Company”

    I want gingerbread on my G2

  • zps

    there is something seriously wrong with the software supporting the battery on this phone.   the phone will suddenly just drain all power at will.  i pray it’s not physically damaging the battery.  what a joke. NEVER another LG phone in my life.  

    can anyone point me to a stable stock gingerbread ROM and instructions on install?  thanks!

  • zps

    they can’t if they want to keep the “with google” branding.   i don’t think they can do it at this point.

  • zps

    that’s because this phone is such a debacle that they are most likely concerned about class action lawsuits.  

  • Gsxrguy412

    So I talked to tmobile today and some random techie said”gingerbread 2.3 will be out for g2x owners in the next two weeks!” Now how believable this info is for your own discretion but I surely hope so because my g2x is strugglin to keep from being another useless piece of electronic equipment that gets acquired over the years! Please help tmobile and lg!

    I Believe In Harvey Dent more then I believe you LG and T-Mobile. But then again, you guys are Two Face.

    See what I did there.

  • zps

    guys, a random T-mo customer service rep told me the G2x update is coming by “end of summer”.  kill me now.  ugh.

  • Rod

    Everyone needs to file a formal complaint via the Better Business Bureau! Tmobile is aware of this issue and not really doing anything to assist it’s customers.
