LG's original Optimus One series of devices turned out to be one of last year's surprises. It ran as well as the big dogs when it first came out, and as long as you were comfortable hacking the living crap out of it you have a little Android phone that did everything. It's the perfect mix of price and performance for more than a few. When a phone gets that much push behind it, third-party development for lives forever. We see that again today, with the release of Cannibal Open Touch recovery for the Optimus S. Everything you like about the others is there, plus support for both Froyo and Gingerbread ROM flashing, touch-screen navigation buttons, even custom themeing is on board. Of course it is fully open source and the code is posted at bitbucket.
If you're hankerin' to give Cannibal Open Touch a try on you Optimus S, hit the link below for files and instructions. It's devs like this that let folks keep the same phones long after they have fell out of style and still have the latest and greatest. We tip our hat to all involved!
