Improved Unbrick Tool for the Optimus 2X Released

While there are scores of useful mods out there, there are few that are more important than unbrick tools. There is a pretty useful one for some HTC devices, and most Samsung devices have a USB jig method. Now, the LG Optimus 2X has something analogous.

This actually isn’t the first unbrick method for the LG Optimus 2X. This tool is based off of prior efforts, such as this tool by XDA Senior Member Homero2. XDA Forum Member ProgMag has improved previous efforts by including a number of features. As ProgMag explains:

The main advantage that don’t exists in other tool, is that in this case is included factory misc and lgdrg partitions.

The tool includes useful tools such as NVFlash, and the associated ROM and recovery files. Users then run the flash.bat and follow the instructions. Afterward, users will have a fully functional device with ClockworkMod Recovery and a clean slate to go flashing again. Interestingly enough, the ROM included actually isn’t factory stock. It’s a CM10 nightly from November 5th. So those who want some AOSP goodness after unbricking will actually get it.
