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.

When a Friend or Family Member Asks for a Phone Recommendation, What Do You Tell Them?

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
