Revamp the LG Optimus 2X Camera Experience

Optimus 2x Camera Mod

Occasionally, a stock application or two doesn’t quite live up to the expectations of its end users. Whether it be an email application that isn’t themed to the rest of the operating system, mismatched overscroll glow colors, or simply an application that isn’t performing performing as well as it could, there is always room for improvement. For those carrying the LG Optimus 2x, you now have the ability to make said improvement in at least one application.

XDA Senior Member |ErosizeD| presents BR CameraMOD, which takes the stock camera and camcorder experience and gives it a reavamp. To start, the camera is now capable of taking higher quality pictures, and the camcorder can churn out a h. . . READ ON »

T-Mobile LG G2x Receives MIUI Port

miui-devs-twitter

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 features of Official MIUI
*Wi-Fi Calling (Yes it works!)
*Zipalign and Permission scrips by Team Kang
*Trinity Kernel by morfic

There is also a 2nd build with a different kernel in case you’re more into overclocking your CPU than you are saving on batte. . . READ ON »

LG Optimus 2X Can Now Boot Ubuntu

ubuntu_904

It’s always a little exciting when a developer gets Linux working on a phone. It’s a development on Android phones that are a little underrated in terms of pure awesomeness.

Enter XDA Member ergoen who has gotten Linux, namely Ubuntu, booting on the LG Optimus 2X. Now, we must warn you that this is highly unstable and, as ergoen will tell you:

USING THE FOLLOWING WILL VOID ANY WARRANTY YOU MIGHT HAVE LEFT AND MIGHT ALSO BRICK YOUR PHONE!
Seriously, don’t do this if you don’t wish to risk the data on your phone.

So, this is more for those thrill seekers who understand that they flash this at their own risk and no one is responsible for it but them. However, for those who are willing (read: daring. . . READ ON »

android-ice-cream-sandwich-logo

LG has announced their schedule for Ice Cream Sandwich updates. Similar to Samsung and Sony Ericsson, only their 2011 models will get the official update to Android 4.0.

The rollout will begin in the second quarter of 2012 with the LG Optimus LTE, Prada phone by LG 3.0, LG Optimus 2X, LG Optimus Sol, LG my Touch Q and LG Eclipse, followed in the third quarter by the LG Optimus 3D, LG Optimus Black, LG Optimus Big, LG Optimus Q2 and LG Optimus EX.

The exact dates, which may vary by country and carrier, will be announced separately, according to LG. However, since there’s no mention of the US-carrier branded versions, like the T-Mobile G2x, AT&T Thrill 4G and Nitro HD, their fate remains unclear.

Noticon Theme For LG Optimus 2x

20110530221631

If you fancy a change from the stock notification icons on your LG Optimus 2x, take a look at the Noticon theme by XDA forum member zarras.

This is the first try by the XDA member to build something useful for the community of the O2x and most of the work is placed in icons along the notification bar, pull down menu and some screens such as the USB alert screen.

There are 5 different versions of Noticon with different notification bars and toggle buttons and the theme also includes the Battery Percentage Mod by XDA member Malicious Ken.

Note that this will work on stock and Modaco’s ROMs (Froyo 2.2) but not on CM ROMS (Gingerbread).

LG G2x and Optimus 2x Say Hello to CyanogenMod 7

281718632

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. Although they are official releases from the CyanogenMod team, as opposed to ports by other developers, the fact that these are only ‘nightlies’ hints that they may not at the moment be completely stable or bug-free. Known problems include issues with video capture, audio and auto-brightness.

Nonetheless, if you’ve been dying to try out the G. . . READ ON »

As the battle of the dual cores rages on between our favorite (and not so favorite) manufacturers, and we are luckily stuck in the middle of this being showered with more and more options for our next purchases of mobile devices. The second phone to go live blessed with the technology of dual core processors (notice I said phones and not devices, as there are a few tabs with this in them already) comes from LG, who in coincidentally a late comer into the smartphone game. The LG Optimus 2X, also known as the T-Mobile G2x (thank you T-Mobile for the utterly confusing branding on this one) has finally been released by the US carrier. Neatly packed with features, and blazing fast  performance, the G2x promises to be a good . . . READ ON »

If you are itching to get your hands dirty with some of the best devices that were announced at CES this past month, then rest assured that we got you covered. We have added some playgrounds for beginning of discussions regarding cracking, hacking, or otherwise modding both Motorola devices and the latest LG. Simply put, these two seem to be among the top of the top of all the devices debuted at the expo.
