LG Speaks Up, Official G2X Update “By Summer”

Right on the heels of the LG G2X class action lawsuit, LG has finally pitched in with something to say.  Unfortunately, their response isn’t really good news.  Their statement, issued by an LG moderator at LG Forum, is that:

“The official word for the Gingerbread update on G2x is ‘by summer’ and all of the internal discussions thus far have it launching very close to that timeframe.  When we receive any updated information we will update this sticky post with it.”

Here I thought that they were supposed to announce something more around June 23rd, and that the Gingerbread update for the G2X was “less than a month out.” I don’t know where you live, but we still have a good two months of summer left, so this might take a while.

    I was thrilled to see LG make a super phone… but like everyone else the experience was disappointing.  I have mine rooted running CM7 and loading nightlies.  That seems to have fixed the issues but still no gingerbread and its sad to see LG and T-Mobile handling this in such a douche way

    No more LG, No More Samsung (well they did have great customer service when I called them), No More Motorola (I believe) for me. HI HTC, I LOVE you!

      Agreed, HTC has been the best by far.  If I would have known they were going to unlock the bootloader, I would have waited for the Sensation.

    • WWWYKI!

      It doesn’t matter when the update comes. I’m never buying another LG product. I have a LG blu ray player also and sometimes it doesn’t even turn on. I have to unplug it for a minute and plug it back before it’ll turn on. That, plus my G2x problems is enough reason for me to not buy that brand anymore

    • Cheo Fana

      Its bullshit like this that is making me think about switching to an iPhone. And I have had android phones since the beginning. The manufacturers and this fragmentation is getting ridiculous. We shouldn’t have to rely on developers to bring us updates that should be part of the phone. ITS A STOCK 2.2 PHONE …WTF IS THE HOLD UP. ….and T-Mobile should be putting the pressure on LG to hurry the F***k up too.

    Unless this update is MAGICAL and not only solves all of the outstanding issues, but also adds amazing new functionality that propels the G2X deep into bleeding edge territory… I won’t EVER purchase another LG device again.

    LG, it is forgivable for a device as complex as today’s smartphones to have issues.  What is NOT FORGIVABLE is the lack of communication to your customers and the time it is/has taken to correct the problem.  Either you haven’t allocated a reasonable number of development resources to the task, or your team is incompetent.

    My advice to you, should you wish to actually “gain” market share in the future, would be to SPECTACULARLY FIX the G2X…. and quickly.  Otherwise you will never rid your brand of the stink.

    First; this is what they have had on their forum for the last month or so and then took it down and reposted it.

    Second; Either LG doesn’t know it’s Summer, or they are talking about Summer in Australia so we should see an update around December 23rd.

  • Tmobile employee

    Recently heard a SVP comment that LG has given T-Mobile 2 possible updates already but that both were rejected as they didn’t fix any of the known issues and that a third was supposed to be delivered to T-Mobile to check for a possible release in this next week.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Zachary-Shankman/671554785 Zachary Shankman

      THe update is out right now via LG software updater

  • http://twitter.com/tmoore4075 Tim Moore

    So do we think this will actually fix the major issues? or will people now just have crashes with Gingerbread instead of Froyo?

  • Worddc

    Who cares about LG and their update!  We have Tmobile which means via super1click you root the phone, pop CMod7 with gingerbread 2.3.4 and go about your business…the G2x is a rockstar with the help of CMod7!

    I’m also interested to see how the Class Action Lawsuit plays out.  If there’s a way I can get out of my G2X and into an HTC Sensation with minimal cost, I’m there.

    great… but know the superone click wont work to root the gingerbread version… does anyone have a solution?

    • Lordevereste

      XDA has all the answers…One click is a rubbish root anyway, head over to the G2X section (android dev)

    It’s out now. Just updated using LGMobile Software Updater!  XD

  • http://www.facebook.com/manish.chacko Manish Chacko

    On my second G2X after it got stuck in a reboot loop even after a hard
    reset. Got the LGMobile Support Tool and upgraded to Gingerbread last
    night. Roughly 30% performance upgrade-smoother scrolling, faster app
    launches-Good Job Google!! Just when I thought it was going good, my G2X
    shutdown (20 minutes after upgrade). Wonder what T-Mobile/LG will blame
    next? Should look like this: Battery>Charger>Firmware>Phone
    Chipset. I suspect it is the chipset and Gingerbread was just to appease
    class action lawsuit! Calling T-Mobile support-will keep y”all updated

  • http://www.facebook.com/manish.chacko Manish Chacko

    Update (7-22-2011 09:22 CST)- Very helpful (US based) and friendly CSR offered me a battery replacement with free express shipping :)- if they had always been this friendly instead of outsourcing it to people reading scripts without any power to help you outside the script, I would have stayed with T-Mobile. Every carrier will have issues-it’s how they react/respond that makes the difference. Glad that T-Mobile is finally coming to its senses-now if they offer me a full refund and an HTC phone, I may stick with T-Mobil$ :)
    I bet they follow my flow chart till the end.
    Battery>Charger>Firmware>LG>Phone Chipset
