The LG Optimus 2X is a beast of a smartphone by anyone’s standards today. What typically happens with deadly phones like this however, is that the carrier or manufacturer decide to pre-load it with a bunch of apps they think will improve the overall use for the consumer. As this is a much larger subject as to why they should just leave the OS alone and let US decide what apps to install, the LG Optimus 2X will be launching with little more than stock Android 2.2, with an upgrade to Gingerbread right after launch. NICE!
That said, there’s always a need to put a little more than stock Android on your beastly device right? So, the LG Optmius 2X, also known as the T-Mobile G2X when they launch it, has gotten some custom coding courtesy of Paul from MoDaCo. Paul successfully built a custom recovery, kernel and custom ROM for the Optmius 2X, which means that when it launches, which we hope to be very soon, you’ll be able to bring it home and start loading it up with some CM7, or maybe a few other ROMs that may be available by the time this hits the market.
