LG Optimus 2X Toolkit Allows for Easy Re-Partitioning and More

lgtoolkit

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 qu. . .

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

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 a patch that should fix the audio issue. As marsgod explains:

As you can see,
1. when the call start, the ril send
LGE_SET_CPATH 3
LGE_SET_CPATH 1 (if you make the call via headset, it will be LGE_SET_CPATH 2)
2. during the call session, the ril send
LGE_SET_CPATH 8
3. after ending the call , the ril send
LGE_SET_CPATH 0

Improved Unbrick Tool for the Optimus 2X Released

lg-optimus-2x-2-jpg

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 . . . READ ON »

App to Auto-Search for LG Optimus 2x Leaks

optimus 2x

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 . . . READ ON »

Team Win Recovery Project Updated to 2.2

filemanagerrenam

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 file manager, and dual storage support for Nandroid backups. Additionally, TWRP added support for the open source scripting engine OpenRecoveryScript, which works in conjunction with the pr. . . READ ON »

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

phonehome

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. They started from the ground with AOSP recovery and added all the standard recovery options, and then added a slew of their own. First, it is entirely controlled by t. . . READ ON »

BotBrew Used to Port PDroid to More Devices

PDroid

With so much development work created and released, it is only a matter of time before development ideas collide and the awesomeness aggregates for end users. That said, we’ve already brought you coverage of PDroid to help promote privacy and BotBrew, a Linux-based package manager that gives users the ability to flash or create virtually anything. Now, BotBrew is being used to help port PDroid to a number of devices, including the LG Optimus 2x and the Barnes & Noble Nook Color.
