It’s not a rare occurrence that performing a resource heavy task on your Android device (e.g. playing a game or multitasking heavily) results in the back of your device getting quite hot due to the heat being generated by the CPU. And without proper or adequate heat distribution, this heat will be most prominent at a certain area of your device’s rear. Strong heat is not the only downside of a hot CPU however, as it can also result in decreased performance due to throttling, less battery life, and a lower overall device longevity.
With this said, XDA Senior Member ottomanhero figured out a very clever way of remedying this issue on his LG Optimus 4X HD after noticing that playing games on this phone results in a ce. . . READ ON »

Imagine that you’re flashing the latest nightly of your favorite ROM. If you are performing a fresh install by wiping all of your data, this also means that you have to flash all of your modified system apps, user apps, modules, and so on. And if you’re doing this on a regular basis, all the wasted time really starts to add up. So what do you do? Do you manually install these apps again, or do you add them to your favorite ROM? One of the better solutions is to use Aroma Installer by XDA Recognized Developer amarullz. However, you normally need some experience to configure it properly.

LG produces many powerful devices. Two perfect examples would be two latest Nexus phones sold by Google. But this South Korean corporation has released quite a few devices with their own OEM skins and customization, and one of these is the LG Optimus 4X HD, also known as X3—quite a unique naming scheme indeed.
The Optimus 4X HD was initially a locked device. But after the release of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, this quad-core phone has become more developer friendly and can be bootloader unlocked. XDA Forum Moderator laufersteppenwolf and XDA Recognized Developers Adam77Root and Demetris recently issued multiple releases of KitKat-based ROMs on the very same day. Now members can choose between Cyanoge. . . READ ON »

A while back, several XDA members were concerned with MTP. For those who don’t know, MTP stands for Media Transfer Protocol and it replaced USB Mass Storage on a good number of Android devices as the de facto way of connecting to a computer. There were quite a few problems with this—none bigger than some operating systems not working well with MTP. Our TV crew has discussed solutions before, but not every device had a solution for MTP. Now, LG Optimus 4X HD users have a solution.
XDA Forum Member bullghost has released an application that gets USB Mass Storage working on the Optimus 4X HD. The tool started out simple at first, but over the last few weeks it has gotten a number of stability and usability upd. . . READ ON »

Obtaining root is definitely among the top priorities of developers when a phone is released. Root and custom recovery is about as far as most users go, as once they get the ability to flash ROMs and other mods, they don’t need much more. However, many who wish to dig deeper require an unlocked bootloader. The LG Optimus 4X HD has already attained root. Now devs are looking to unlock the bootloader using a recently released bootloader dump.
XDA Senior Member wkpark has uploaded a bootloader dump from a Korean post in another Android hacker forum. It was ripped from the stock KDZ file, and is ready for devs to play with. In addition to the bootloader dump, wkpark has added a couple of other useful items, includin. . . READ ON »

A short time ago, we brought you news about root and recovery for the LG Optimus 4X HD. Thanks to this, ROMs could be created and development could begin on LG’s newest Android offering. This is definitely good news for early adopters of the device. Now, there is an application that can help control things like processor clock speed on the Optimus 4X HD, and unbelievably, it actually doesn’t require root thanks to an undocumented LG API that works on stock firmware 10C.
We have brought you news on multi-core mods that bring more control over the CPU before, but this is definitely unique. XDA Forum Member atipon has released an application called LG GearBox, which can change things like the device cloc. . . READ ON »

As usual, the first thing device owners strive for when a new device is released is root access. Without it, more than 90% of the things we do around here wouldn’t work. So when a device gets root, it’s much like a welcome party courtesy of our developers. The LG Optimus 4X HD, which was released a little more than a month ago, has received not only root, but recovery as well.
For root, XDA Senior Member alexp999 posted the tutorial. XDA Senior Member Dexter_nib posted the tutorial for custom recovery. Combine both, and you have the freedom to do pretty much whatever you choose to do.
The root process is a little tedious, but pretty easy. Users must first enable USB Debugging and Install From Unknown Sourc. . . READ ON »
