App to Auto-Search for LG Optimus 2x Leaks

When a device gets an OS leak, it’s usually a precursor to an official OTA update. They aren’t always good to flash, but they can give developers advanced insight as to how the next update will be or a base upon which to start working. To put it another way, when firmware is leaked, it’s like opening a Birthday present a few days early: It’s just a taste of good things to come. LG Optimus 2x owners now have an application that will automatically search for such leaks.

Released by XDA Recognized Contributor Stefan Gündhör, the tool intelligently scans LG’s websites and lets users know when a new leak has been uploaded. Obviously, this is not for the feint of heart, as you should never flash a leak until it has been deemed safe to do so. However, developers and users alike can benefit from knowing when a leak has been uploaded.

The app is very simple to use. Download it, install it, run it, and it will keep tabs on LG and let you know when something has been uploaded. Also, it is not a brute force script, thanks to XDA Forum Member marsgod.

If you’d like to keep track of the latest leaks, look no further than the original thread.

Multi Boot: The Fall of Nandroid?

Ever since custom recoveries and roms became popular, nandroid backups have been the fall back method for all android enthusiasts, irrespective of their confidence levels. They allow easy backup and restore in case things go wrong, which happens invariably when a modification is being tested. With that being said, how relevant are Nandroid Backups to this day? Back in 2011, when the world of Android was being awed by the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S2, a little modification made its appearance...
