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

onex+

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. Two new devices have gotten AOSP Android 4.1 recently: the T-Mobile LG G2x and the HTC One X+.

XDA Forum Member adampk provided the release for the G2x. It’s based on CM10 and It’s pretty stable. Most of the major issues have been solved such as camera, hardware acceleration, and WiFi. However, there are still some issues being . . . READ ON »

LG SU660 Kernel Source Released, May Help G2X

T-Mobile-G2x

When source code gets released, it is an exciting time. Whether it’s device specific or full Android code, source code getting released means that developers can keep on developing. Some kernel source has recently been released for the LGSU660. For T-Mobile LG G2x users, it could mean a lot as the LGSU660 is very similar to the LG G2x.

Essentially, the new source code helps the G2x to get fully functional Jelly Bean, as well as fix bugs on ICS. As XDA Senior Member wkpark notes in this post:

It seems like that this kernel support not only SU660 but also P990/P999

For G2x owners, this is great news. It means that their current AOSP offerings can get s. . . READ ON »

Paranoid Android Ported to More Devices

signature

Recently, we brought you news of Paranoid Android being ported to the Sony Xperia Play. Well, we are happy to report that the list of ported devices is growing fast. For the uninitiated, Paranoid Android is a hybrid ROM that allows users to scale and project every app, every widget, even system components individually. As described in the Galaxy Nexus Jelly Bean port by XDA Forum Member molesarecoming:

To be honest, this is not tablet mode at all, it has nothing to do with silly build.prop hacks. This is the first and only Android rom to feature true Hybrid mode. This rom lets you scale and project every app, every widget, even systemcomponents individually. Remember, android is modular, everything is a

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 »

Script and Tweaks Bring Buttery Smooth G2x Experience

T-Mobile G2x

With the newer phones coming out and having increasingly impressive hardware, it’s easy to forget that not long ago, devices suffered from this little problem called lag. Although the lag problem has been all but snuffed out by the advances in hardware and software over the last year or so, there are still some devices out there that have lag issues. In some cases, these lag issues can even be fixed.

This is the case with the T-Mobile LG G2x. Being among the first wave of dual core phones, it was not too long ago that this was a flagship device for T-Mobile. That does not mean that the device isn’t subject to lag, however, and now there’s a way to fix it. XDA Senior Member flak0 has released a mod that wi. . . READ ON »

Remove Old Clutter with Batch Cleanup for G2x

Toilet Paper

Sometimes a device just needs a little a lot of extra cleaning. Be it from applications that leave behind folders and files after an uninstall or add-ons and scripts, Android flashers often need a supreme wipe to clean out the partitions. This option is now available on the LG G2x. XDA Forum Member mansa_noob has release an application called Cleanup Batch that will wipe every conceivable thing off of every partition on your phone.

Okay, so wiping is a bit inaccurate. What the application actually does is re-create all the partitions, destroying all remaining data in the process. Says mansa_noob:

The contents of the zip file can be used to super clean G2X before a new ROM flash. This tool recreates all the p
