The LG Optimus 2X (see our hands-on) gets the next step of the hacking treatment, a custom recovery. Paul O'Brien has built ClockworkMod recovery, and packaged it up with an easy installer for Windows, Linux, and Mac computers. The project is still marked as beta, but the few issues seem to be centered around the installer, so advanced users may wish to just manually copy and dd the recovery image themselves. Having said that, unlike some other hacks that spring up from time to time, Paul is actively working with the few folks having issues, so I feel good about recommending this one.
I realize that few of us here in the states will be getting an Optimus 2X, but AT&T and T-Mobile will be releasing some very similar devices, so we're keeping an eye on this one in hopes of an easy port. Visit the source link for downloads and installation information. [MoDaCo] Thanks for the tip, Dan!
