LG Releases Optimus 2X Patch, Fixes Black Screen Of Death

LG has released a patch for the glitch that resulted in hundreds of its Optimus 2X handsets freezing and rebooting over and over again.

The glitch, also known as the “black screen of death” was first noticed almost a couple of months back and was soon reported to the XDA Developer’s Forums.

The “black screen of death” caused the “victim” handset to freeze and reboot in a very random manner. The glitch eventually outraged thousands of its users, the anger being quite visible on the XDA forum where the forum-post related to the issue has gone over 106 pages carrying hundreds of frustrated and angst ridden comments.

However, LG perhaps got a hold of the seriousness of the issue soon enough, hence already coming up with a patch for the problem.

"LG is aware that a few Optimus 2x customers are occasionally experiencing random device shut-offs. While this does not affect every customer, LG regrets the inconvenience this has caused,” LG reportedly told the website TechRadar in an exclusive interview.

It added, "We have determined the cause of the problem and have developed a software maintenance update to remedy this. This update can be found on our support site.”
