  • I got my update yesterday, and I haven't run into any major glitches so far! I really like it, it definitely looks smoother. I think that's more of a change of the animations slightly than anything else, it doesn't really open apps faster. Scrolling from screen to screen is faster. My only complaints are that it deleted one of my folders, Google Chrome stopped working until I did an update, and I had to restart the phone a couple of times before things starting working at 100%. Battery life seems to be slightly improved. With ICS, my drain was about 5% per hour while on standby/WiFi. Now it's more like 3.6%/hour with a mix of standby and active web browsing.
  • Just got my update this morning. My OG feels a bit sluggish, compared to when it was running ICS. Apps open a bit slowly. It used to be a smooth phone. Not any more. I am going to factory reset and see if it fixes the lagginess.
  • hi I leave outside of US , so i dont use a AT&T sim card , i use one from a carrier of my country on my LG optimus G , is anyway that i can updated with ODIN or somthing else cuz i really want Jellybean on my Optimus G.
