I had to reinstall Chrome and it worked fine afterwards. The phone was rooted before the update and I rooted it after as well. It works like a charm. I hesitated with the upgrade after reading about "lag issues", but after installation, the phone feels faster. All the lag I had before is gone. I should add that I have about 100 apps installed and that I performed upgrade after unrooting and uninstallation of AV software.

does anyone in here had absolutely no problem after upgrading to jellybean? and is is true that if you experience issues after the update like phone being (laggy crashes and overheats)that all we need to do is a hard reset? and it will fix everything?

What the hell ..O4X is one of the best lg's smartphone now it gets the worst update,they are ruining their reputation. still no words from LG about fixing this update we waited more than 5 months to get JB update now it doesn't make a point for the O4X lovers.

IN JB, RAM will be lesser by 150-250MB.... free RAM is just 360MB or below in JB while in ICS its 450-550MB. Better not update till the firmware update is released.

Try to clean up some space in your PC, the insufficient storage warning is for your PC. Try to have at least your used internal storage + 3giga free space at your PC. It work for me ^ ^

PS: I spend almost a month try to figure that upgrade warning, hope it is okay for you

Its just horrible, after update so much bugs, when someone call only black screen and cant do anything. Lag, use 800 mb of memory (500 before). Battery enough only for 1 day (4 days before). Ive made reset, but nothing have changed. Have to find way to downgrade back to 4.0.1.

After I updated my 4X on 4.1 JELLY BEAN i started having a problems. When I call someone my screen went black and I cant hang up, or do enithing with that phonecole. Battery life iz last shorter than before. Camera das not work in spaces with less light...
Sometimes i wish that I had never update my phon.
But it is sad that that update cams from LG himself...
It is not professional! ! !

My current version is v20c, things that i saw:

Battery: the battery life is equal or less than before. Really sucks!!!

Phone temperature: when running heavy apps(like games for example), is less too, not overheating like always does with ICS... bah!, it´s not like the phone don´t overheating at all, but i think now runs more "fresh".

Apps: all running fine, more efficient and fast, facebook and camera runs a little bit slow only when starts it, all the rest are fine or better.

Games: less lag than before, i notice this with games like Real Racing 3. In other words, improved performance in this point.

RAM: it´s like a very fucked up junkie with 1oz of coke... consumes memory like hell, result in a strange case because the phone runs great with no big problems.(must cleanse more often)

Wi-Fi: improved connection.

I guess i was lucky, agree with the idea of better upgrade in a near future with more improvments in a more stable version.
PD: sorry for my poor english, grammatically grose... I´m for Argentina and almost speaks my own language fine and correctly hahaha!!!!(not really)

End of my review for now, i hope...

C.ya!

Can anyone confirm absolutely that a factory reset after upgrade will fix the crashing, lagging, increased heat and battery drain that has been mentioned?
Has anyone who reported these issues done the factory reset and found these issues resolved?
