LG G2x Gets CM10-Based ROM, Pure AOSP 4.1.2 ROM Compiled for HTC One X+

While the momentum on Android 4.1 has slowed and focus has shifted to Android 4.2, it hasn't stopped developers from bringing it to devices that didn't have it before. Even if the device already has ICS or Jelly Bean, many users prefer the vanilla flavor of Android. If it doesn't, then it's a welcome update they'd probably never get otherwise.
