The LG Spectrum, despite its rather impressive specs, has had a tough time battling it out with Verizon’s other premium offerings for the buyers’s attention. But it looks like the phone will edge others on the list when it comes to getting that Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade the unofficial way. A leaked ICS firmware for the LG Spectrum has made its way to XDA-devs.
From what we’ve read, installing the leaked ROM on the LG Spectrum seems like a complicated affair, even more so than the usual. So it’s best to get your geek groove on should you wish to give it a try. Those that have successfully installed it report that ICS is working well and quite stable, except for the issue where some Google apps are not working properly. This leads us to believe that it’s not the final build yet.
While a leaked ROM file for the LG Spectrum is not a guarantee that it will be followed by an official ICS roll out by the carrier (just ask Galaxy Nexus owners who have been burned a couple of times), this does give hope that the dual-core LG Spectrum will join the ranks of other ICS-touting phones soon. This the second ICS leak for LG devices in a month. A while back, a leaked ICS ROM for AT&T’s LG Nitro HD has also surfaced online. And what do you know, the official update still hasn’t been rolled out by AT&T.
Interested in trying the leaked ICS ROM file for your LG Spectrum? Or will you wait out for the OTA update?
