A class action lawsuit was started against LG claiming that the company failed to remedy various problems and defects with the G2x in an appropriate time frame. Terry Horvarth is the head plaintiff and is seeking to represent a class of those that have purchased the stock Android device.
Now all of a sudden, the Gingerbread update is available through LG’s proprietary Mobile Software Updater, but there has been no official announcement. We have no idea what bugs, if any, will be fixed, nor do we know if this is indeed the final build. It is possible that LG released it to satisfy the unsatisfied or maybe it is a mistake, which would result in it getting pulled shortly.
What we do know is that it is indeed Gingerbread 2.3.3, it is 178MB, and it is build GRi40. If you are rooted, you should know that this update will break it.
The G2x was a highly anticipated phone because it was stock Android, but the anticipation turned to regret as many owners were plagued with issues like reboots, and with no fix in sight. Back in June, LG promised Gingerbread was coming soon, but people were already fed up, which resulted in the class action suit.
Hopefully, this update is the beginning of much better times for the G2x owners. Let us know how you make out in the comments.
