We have been getting reports in this morning that the LG G2x is now getting the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update over the air (OTA) today from T-Mobile. It leaked just last week for manual download and plenty of users jumped over to get the latest taste of Android but now users can do it the easy way via the OTA update.
With all the troubles and issues the G2x faced I’m glad to finally see the update arrive, it’s a shame it took so long although they did original say “coming this summer”. Yesterday we heard it was going to be available in stores again and come out of the box with Android 2.3 Gingerbread but we still have no confirmations regarding that. Early reports are claiming almost all issues have been fixed and the device is speeding along as it was originally intended.
Not only are you getting the speed and user interface updates from Gingerbread but T-Mobile and LG have addressed the random reboots, the lock ups that required battery pulls, as well as the spastic battery life. My G2x was so inconsistent that I never felt comfortable without a charger around. Users should be able to go into settings and check for the update right on their device and it should begin downloading over the air. Make sure to have pretty full battery life and a good 10 minutes to wait for completion.
