US Cellular LG Apex Android 2.2 Froyo update now available

Sure, the world may be abuzz about Android Ice Cream Sandwich, the version that’s coming later this year. Sure, 5 months may have passed since the current version of the operating system, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, was released. Sure, sometimes we may be annoyed at how slow phone manufacturers are moving in getting their devices updated to Gingerbread.

And then there are such devices as the LG Apex for US Cellular. This smartphone still runs Android 2.1, and has just received an update to Android 2.2 Froyo, a version of the OS that’s almost one year old.

Froyo for the Apex brings every improvement you’d expect, including the mobile hotspot capability, storing apps on the SD card, faster overall performance, better browser, and Exchange support. However, because the Apex has a measly 600 MHz processor, there will be no Adobe Flash support on it.

The update isn’t over-the-air, meaning that you need a computer to perform it. What’s more, you need a Windows computer to update your Apex. On the other hand, the update is available to download right now – whereas OTA updates usually go through staggered rollouts. So if you’ve got a spare half an hour, get updating!

Full instructions on how to perform the update are provided in this PDF, and a complete overview of the new features can be found in this PDF.
