Jelly Bean has made its way across these forums at a fever-pitch. Practically every day, we report on another device receiving support in some form, and the list continues to grow. Now, thanks to Team EaglesBlood and XDA Recognized Developer doniqcc, T-Mobile G2x owners have received a pre-alpha AOSP build of JellyBean and now can join in on all the hype.

If you want to do more with the stock camera on your T-Mobile LG G2x, take a look at XDA forum member flexnix‘s DIY fisheye lens attachment.

Nightly builds popped up for both the P990 (Optimus 2x) and the P999 (G2x) earlier today.

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.
