An smartphenom reader tipped us about an alleged e-mail from LG Electronics Open Source Code Distribution group confirming a Jelly Bean upgrade for the Optimus 4X by 1Q (on or before March 2013). When asked about the availability of an unlocked bootloader, the supposedly LG employee wrote:
LGP880(EU Open) will be unlocked after next OS version update which is Jelly Bean. We expect that new version update will be during first quarter 2013.
If this information is accurate, we may enjoy a buttery experience just before two months from now. I'll try to get an official confirmation from LG regarding this letter (allegedly from one of its divisions). In the meanwhile, we should take this information with a pinch of salt (althoug the dates are in line with what we already reported some weeks ago). Well, at least there's hope :-)
Here's an screenshot of the e-mail:
What do you think? Will LG honour the owners of the Optimus 4X HD? Are you still waiting for the update or have you switched already? Please have your say in the comments section below.
