How To Install Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS 4.03) On LG Optimus 2x SU660


ICS 4.03 Lockscreen in LG Optimus 2x SU660

This is the ultimate guide on how to install the latest Cyanogenmod 9.0 RC Ice Cream Sandwich ICS 4.0.3 on Korean Version of LG Optimus 2x (SU660)
 Requirements:
  • Rooted phone, if not rooted, use this guide to root your phone
  • ClockworkMod 5.0.2.7, if you don't have ClockworkMod 5.0.2.7 for SU660, download the clockworkmod below

    http://www.filefactory.com/file/c4077da/n/cwm-5.0.2.7-su660-20111121.zip

    Extract the the cwm-5.0.2.7-su660-20111121.zip file to drive c:\
    I'll refer to this as C:\NV, but you can name it anything you like. Power off your phone and remove the battery. If you are using a desktop computer, plug the full-size USB-plug directly into a port on the motherboard (backside of the case usually). Press and hold volume-up AND volume-down while plugging the micro-USB into the phone. 

    Browse the c:\NV folder and click on flash-recovery.bat (if you are using Windows 7) or flash-recovery_xp.bat (If you are using Windows XP) and then choose option #1

    The phone will display a Software-upgrade-screen, while the command-window will inform you of the progress. After a little while it'll be finished and you can press any key to exit. (Now, where's that 'any'-key again?) Just to be safe, wait another 10 seconds before removing the usb-cable from the phone, cutting its power. Now install the battery again.

1.) Download  Nova HD RC10 (Cynagenmod 9) modified for Optimus 2x SU660 and put the zip file in your SD Card

2.) Download the Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) kernel for SU660 LG Optimus2x and put the zip file in your SD Card

3.) Turn off your LG Optimus 2x SU660 phone and while its already turned off, hold volume-down and home key (center button) while pressing the power-key. Keep buttons pressed until you see an LG-Logo with a bluish halo. Now you should be in the regular ClockworkMod. Choose «Install Zip from sdcard» (by navigating to it with the volume-buttons, then select it with the power-button) then «choose zip from sdcard». Navigate to where you put NovaHDPlus_RC10_SU660.zip, select it and confirm
 4.) After the rom is installed, DON"T REBOOT YOUR PHONE, instead go back to Choose «Install Zip from sdcard and this time, select ICS_Kernel_SU660.zip, after ICS 4.03 kernel for SU660 is installed, reboot your phone.  Please wait for few minutes as your LG Optimus 2x SU660 (Korean version) upgrades to Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS  4.03) during the startup, the first startup make take a longer to load.

ISSUES AND THEIR SOLUTIONS:

 1.) Problem: When you plug your LG Optimus 2x SU660 to your computer, you cannot see your internal SD Card

Solution: Click on the notification, "Touch for other USB option" and choose "select as Media Device" (MTP)

2.) Problem: Cannot use video recorder
Solution: Cyanogenmod 9 has no hardware acceleration yet, but you can use Video Illusion app to solve this issue

    1. John, do you encounter any issues when installing apps from Play? (i.e. "your device isn't compatible with this item" messages)

      Delete
    2. No, I didn't have such issues. Do you have the latest Play? When you go into the system settings-about phone, what does it list under "model number"?

      For more up-to-date kernel & ROM for SU660 (CM9-Kang30), I recommend http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1567312.

      For p990 (CM9-Kang60), I recommend http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1517301.

      Good luck.

  7. Please excuse this noobish question. Nova HD is now on RC26-58, is it possible to use in lieu of RC10 or was this particular ROM customized for su660?

    I'm asking because I went through the Nova HD changelog and they've fixed issues and introduced some new features.

  8. Well, the updates are so good and rebooting problems got solved but the problem only is the HD Video Recorde. Before I upgraded, my HD Video Recorded works fine but my phone always rebooting because of Software Conflicts between Android and Lg and then, when I updated my Lg Optimus Prime to this one, rebooting problem is solved but HD Video Recorder is a problem now. Video Illusion is a good Video Recorder but my HD is a useless now. So, aside from Video Illusions, what other HD Video recorder available for this CM 9?

  12. Hello guys,

    First of all, thanks for helping me put ICS on my LGSU660, it works great, the only problem is that when i call someone that is in another GSM network I can't hear him.

    For example we have 3 carriers in my contry, Vodafone, Orange and Cosmote, if i put a sim from Orange or Cosmote in the device and try to call someone on Vodafone it's not working i can't hear him, but if I put a Vodafone sim and try to call someone in vodafone it works.

    I have 3 LG SU660 and on all of them happens the same, did somebody had a similar problem or is there anyone that can help me out?

    Thanks in advance!
