LG Optimus 2X Gets Clockwork Recovery, Custom Kernel + More

On the fence about the LG Optimus 2X because you’re wondering how hackable it is? Throw those worries out of the window because Paul from MoDaCo got his hands on one and has been making substantial progress over the past couple of days. (This is also good news for those of you thinking of picking up a T-Mobile G2X once it’s out.) He’s got clockwork, a custom kernel, and a stock ROM to get you developing-types started with. Find all this and more over at their LG Optimus 2X section. (He’s also posted his wares over at XDA if you fancy getting them from there instead.) [Thanks, Russell!]

      kmobs tweeted a couple weeks ago that a few of his friends were getting the G2X and they were begging to have CM on it. He said he couldn’t let them down.

      I’d rather have someone like TeamWhiskey support it…

    • Hellafastdoo

    This phone looks great but i see that touchwiz looking UI and i just instantly move on to the next device LOL. Yes im aware samsung didnt make this phone. It just looks way too much like that infernal touchpiss

      The G2x is coming with vanilla android, so you can cast your UI worries to the side.

    I didnt let the custom ROM issues deter me from the Droid X. Still is a nice phone regardless.

    But….something happened to me when I saw this news…lol Maybe cuz its one of the phones I want this year (all I wanted last year was a Droid X. This year its like 4 on my list…lol ) I still have a Droid 1 and didnt put anymore custom ROMs on it after Froyo came out. Then my X became my main phone.

    But this news here?? Whatever it is, I’m getting the true custom ROM itch again.

    Loove this phone, very unhappy with this AT&T buy out crap. Don’t like AT&T, their data cap plans suck big time and they are just a terrible carrier to deal with. Long time T-Mobile customer who was and still is dying for this phone but will probably go Thunderbolt with LTE and have a device and a carrier that will be around for a while. I am very upset with this buy out. I own the G1, BB9700, MyTouch 4G and the Nexus One. They are just paper weights. I am just pissed off, I paid full price for all these phones.

    Does anyone know if this is going to 4g capable? I need to know because i’m concerned about the possible merger and the move of ATT dropping 3g service to all phones on tmobile bands.

    • ace

      or if the htc pyramid is going to be 4g capable

  • Chronos

    @ ace
    I believe I read the G2X will be 4G capable and have both T-mobile and AT&T radio bands. So it will be able to take full advantage of T-mobile’s 4g (the first device that can) and ifwhen they merge will work on AT&T’s 4g too.
