After An Eternity, LG Optimus 2X Gets Ice Cream Sandwich

In a shocking turn of events, LG has finally released Android Ice Cream Sandwich for the LG Optimus 2X. After having the update announced, cancelled, argued over by different regional LG social network pages, and just seemingly forgotten about, it was released in Korea over two months ago. This of course prompted a drop of source code, which helped the modding community a lot, but regular people were stuck. Finally, LG decided to release it internationally. The 4.0.4 update can be downloaded using the LG update utility, so you’ll need a computer around.

If you still have an Optimus 2X in use, you should update it immediately. The difference between Ice Cream Sandwich and older versions is massive, if you didn’t already know. Also, what do you guys think? Does this bode well for the Optimus G? It’s still on Ice Cream Sandwich, while 4.1 and 4.2 have been released and 4.2 is running on near identical hardware.
