Some sad news coming from LG Canada’s Twitter account today. The LG Optimus 2X won’t be receiving an upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwhich as previously stated. The statement was issued in response to a tweet asking if the device would receive the delicious update. LG Canada did not explain the reason users would not see ICS, just stating “the original announcement was a general statement issued from HQ.”
Although there may still be some hope yet, this announcement could be specific to LG Canada only, however, it would make little sense for LG to do that. It takes loads of man hours to bring software updates and it seems unlikely LG would spend all that time to NOT include the Canadian variants. We know the Optimus 2X has the capabilities to run ICS and this is not the first time a device manufacturer has ever backed out on something they said. This may be a good time for you to look at rooting your device!
