LG Optimus 2X bug fix still 'several weeks' away

LG confirm Optimus 2X issues are to continue for 'several weeks'

LG Optimus 2X early adopters are to be left disappointed after LG confirmed it will be “several weeks” before it is able to fix an ongoing major bug with the handset.

With a number of Optimus 2X handsets being reported to have suffered from a ‘black screen of death’ issues that sees devices freezing and rebooting at random, LG has confirmed that despite prior intentions it could be a number of weeks until it is able to solve the problem.

Having previously revealed it would have a patch available to users by the end of May, a new post on the company’s Italian blog revealed Optimus 2X will face a further wait of “several weeks.”

"We regret having to announce that the software version expected by the end of the month – in order to solve the instability problems alleged by some customers – has been postponed for several weeks," said the company's statement.”

"Troubleshooting is taking longer than expected because of the systematic nature of the anomalies reported, involving only a part of owners of LG Dual Optimus [2X].

"However, we are aware of the hardships that some of you are [having] with our product. All resources are stretched to the limit of LG to release a best software [update] as soon as possible, but at present we have to move the deadline for issuing [to] the second half of June.

"We will do everything possible to bring forward this date."
