It’s going to be a big release and we hope that it work smoothly on these devices, LG should have launched this update about four months earlier, but late is always better than never.

By this release now there is hope for the users of other LG mobile handsets like LG Optimus 2X, LG Optimus Black Optimus 3D, etc… LG should make these release now, as other brands are upgrading their devices to  Android 4.1.2.

To win the confidence of its costumers LG should update their previous smartphones and do not leave leave as Motorola did… and it is not only about the update it is about immediate updates which makes costumers more happy.

  1. I got it, and so far I’m wishing I didn’t.

    It took me almost two hours to get ICS installed — after half an hour, the first installation failed so I went down to the Verizon store to see what was up. They fiddled with it for a while, and decided it probably was because Wi-Fi was enabled. They disabled Wi-Fi and restarted the update, and a half-hour after that I finally had ICS installed and running. Almost. I had to remove the external SD card to get it to finish initializing, then reinstall the SD card.

    Given the above, I recommend that Lucid owners shut off Wi-Fi and remove their external SD cards while doing the update, and put things back after the update is complete. And do allow at least half an hour for the update to install. It says “15 minutes” but it’s 25 minutes or more, and in the meantime the phone will often appear to be bricked. All you can do is to be patient — once you hit the “Install” button, there’s nothing for you to do until the installation is complete and running so just leave the phone alone.

    Then I spent the next few hours trying to get my stuff reorganized because ICS disorganized it all, including deleting the folder of “starred contacts” that I had on my home screen, and figuring out how to do things that no longer work the way they did. I still haven’t figured out how to get my most-often-used contacts to show up on the Phone app. The external SD card is now located at /mnt/_ExternalSD, which apparently is a non-standard place to mount it (and is different from where it was mounted under Gingerbread on the Lucid), so most of my apps can’t find it.

    The new Lock Screen will launch the displayed apps whichever way you swipe, so now when I swipe up to unlock, an app gets launched and I have to hit the Back button. A minor annoyance, but still…

    Most annoyingly, ICS dispensed with the ability to mount the phone’s internal and external SD cards as USB devices. I can’t copy photos to my computer any longer.

    In return for this grief, I got… I dunno. I haven’t found anything I was missing. I suppose if I wanted to customize the Lock Screen, but I didn’t. Although now I might want to, to remove the app icons so I can swipe it up without launching anything.

    I’m sure that in time, I’ll get used to it and everything will be fine. But I’m not convinced that I’ll ever think, “Boy, am I glad I got ICS.”

  2. Joy, so none of my apps can see the external SD card anymore. I hope they fix this soon.
