Gingerbread 2.3.4 for the LG Optimus 2X ..finally…?

Apologies, but I have said phone and it’s frankly a bit embarrassed that the flagship Android phone from LG has :  A: shipped with 2.2 Froyo and B: has taken this long to be updated to 2.3 Gingerbread..

As I say, the LG Optimus 2X launched with Android 2.2 Froyo, a bit naughty for a top of the range, first dual core phone  to the market , but LG promised us it would be out ‘soon’, so we waited……some of us (Me!) got fed up and rooted the thing, putting Cyanogen CM7 on it, and as most of you running CM7 will probably confirm, it runs very nicely.

For those of you that aren’t into hacking/rooting you phone, you’ve had to wait for the official update, now there was a Gingerbread released to developers some time ago, this is what cyanogen have been basing their build on, but it was by all accounts a rather ‘messy’ build (According to Paul O’Brien) .

Now it appears that an update is just around the corner, two respected people have posted screenshots of a 2.3.4 build (the latest) , suggesting LG have released an updated rom to developers. Fingers crossed it is only a matter of days before LG get round to issuing the update to all of us.
