LG Nitro HD gets a taste of Ice Cream Sandwich in latest leak

A new software build has leaked for AT&T’s LG Nitro HD, and the more adventurous users willing to try it out are raving about the results. The firmware transforms the phone otherwise known as the Optimus LTE from a Gingerbread clunker into an Ice Cream Sandwich dream machine. Early reports are that all major features are fully functional despite a few minor bugs here and there. Much love is being given to the revamped user interface featured on top of Android 4.0.

It looks like we are dealing with the Optimus UI 3.0 that LG touted last week, and it looks like a nice improvement over previous attempts at a custom interface.

For owners of the Optimus LTE in Canada, it sounds like the new software is compatible with your devices, as well (some additional tweaking may be involved). Head on over to the source link below for more info. Download and install with care, if you decide to do so.

      Agree htc seems to have 10 different versions of sense and have all their phones fragmented.

  • Aaron Soles

    Yes and it seems strange that a htc desire c that has much less specs then the rezound or any phone from last year can get htc sense 4.0 but not others.

    The Optimus LTE is a great phone, but LG’s overlay is pretty awful, to say the least. And I wish they would stop putting the carrier identification on the tool bar. That is where notifications go. I don’t need notification of what carrier I’m signed on to. Seriously, it needlessly takes up space.
