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...

In-Call Audio Bug Fixed for CM10 on the LG Optimus 2X

The last time we brought you news about CyanogenMod 10 on the LG Optimus 2X, it was a patcher tool that fixed a myriad of issues. It helped CM10 fans fix a lot of issues with the ROM on the Optimus 2X, but it didn't fix all of them. There is an audio bug during phone calls that prevents users from hearing people they're talking to. Now, there may be a fix for it. XDA Forum Member marsgod has released...

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...

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...

Team Win Recovery Project Updated to 2.2

Just about three months ago, we brought you news that the Team Win Recovery Project had received a massive update to version 2.1. April's release largely heralded the start of a new age in recoveries---where one would no longer have to deal with cumbersome menus, instead interacting with a very user-friendly GUI. It wasn't simply about the GUI either. In addition to bringing an unrivaled level of UI polish, TWRP 2.1 offered users many advanced features such as update.zip queuing, a basic...

TWRP 2.1 for the T-Mobile G2x and LG Optimus 2x

The LG Optimus 2x was the world's first dual-core cell phone. Similarly, the carrier-branded T-Mobile G2x variant was the carrier's first dual-core phone. It launched with great expectations, but fell miserably short for many users. Luckily for G2x owners like myself, we have XDA-Developers. The most recent addition to the list of device-saving mods is the TeamWin Recovery Project recovery by XDA Recognized Developer helicopter88. Unlike other aftermarket recoveries, TWRP was built with ease of use and customization in mind....

Revamp the LG Optimus 2X Camera Experience

Occasionally, a stock application or two doesn't quite live up to the expectations of its end users.

T-Mobile LG G2x Receives MIUI Port

It's always good news when a device gets MIUI. Along with CyanogenMod, it's among the most popular ROMs out there and a "must have" for pretty much any Android device. The Chinese ROM has found it's newest home under the hood of the T-Mobile LG G2x thanks to XDA Junior Member stormageddon, who was kind enough to port it over from the LG Optimus 2X. The features are pretty standard for an MIUI ROM and include a couple others: *All...

LG G2x and Optimus 2x Say Hello to CyanogenMod 7

Due to it being T-Mobile's latest flagship device, it comes as no surprise to learn that the powerful LG G2x and its world-travelling cousin, the Optimus 2x, have been given their first official builds of the most popular custom ROM on Earth: CyanogenMod. Nightly builds popped up for both the P990 (Optimus 2x) and the P999 (G2x) earlier today.
