G2X

There's an update waiting for you in the LG Mobile Support tool if you have a T-Mobile G2X, but relax -- it's not Ice Cream Sandwich. V21Y brings the G2X to Android version 2.3.4, swaps out the baseband for a newer version, and adds Google+ to the ROM.  Early reports say that battery life has been improved, but that great LG camera app is still nowhere to be found. 

Other than that, it looks to be a small version bump from 2.3.3 to 2.3.4, and was "released" with no fanfare. We still don't know when (or if) the G2X will ever see an official Ice Cream Sandwich update, and that makes us sad. Anyone who has one will tell you it's an amazing piece of hardware, simply held back by buggy radios and software. 

If you're feeling brave, and have a stock G2X (or can take the time to roll back to stock), plug in and check for updates and give it a try.

This update was pulled, I believe - it was no longer available as of yesterday afternoon. I can't check now but I haven't seen anyone post that it's back.

I highly doubt we'll see any official ICS update for this phone from LG, there are two pretty well working ICS ROMs out now - Hellfire Sandwich and the AOKP build. Been running Hellfire for over a week and almost everything works, definitely a solid daily driver.

But video's still not working 100%, right? And are Maps consistently reliable?

PWC Realtor says:

yeah if you can live without wi-fi calling and a working camcorder.

wezra says:

As usual the LG junk software update tool doesn't work.

rizzman says:

Yup..either it does not work or it was pulled. WTF LG.

rangers4412 says:

I would imagine another ota is forthcoming.

rizzman says:

Well if it's just ota then I am screwed. Since day one I have not been able to get anything ota due to an "authentication error" message I get that tmo or lg have yet to figure out. I will never deal with lg again.

I have a G2x. I'm in the Philippines. And the LG SW says that a "New mobile phone software available."

Should i push this update? Is it the 2.3.4 update? Or something else?

Help? :(
