LG Optimus 2X Toolkit Allows for Easy Re-Partitioning and More
There are a lot of toolkits out there, and we’ve covered many of them. These include mskip’s Samsung toolkits, hasoon2000’s HTC toolkits, and WugFresh’s Nexus toolkits. While there are ways to do everything in the toolkits manually, having all that functionality in one package has saved a lot of people a lot of trouble. Now, there is a toolkit for the LG Optimus 2x.
XDA Senior Member spyrosk released the toolkit for the Optimus 2x, and it looks to be a pretty handy one. There are a lot of simple features, including built a NFFlash root method, backing up and restoring your internal SD card, extraction of KDZ and AP.bin files, and the LG Update Tool. Its most unique feature, though, is quick partitioning.

This is definitely a toolkit to try out if you own the Optimus 2X. It’s easy to use, and a few of the features can be really useful to new users and experienced users alike. For additional details, check out the original thread.
