LG G2x and Optimus 2x get 1 click clockwork recovery

Earlier in the week we told you about the G2x getting 1-click-root and recovery and you can read about that here. The root method is a 1-click program that is as simple as it gets, but the flashing of clockworkmod recovery was a different story. It needed additional files and NvFlash. Now we have ClockworkMod Recovery for the G2x the easy way.

Now available in Rom Manager is a working recovery for both the G2x, and the Optimus 2x as they needed slightly different ones from what I've read. No more flashing with NvFlash or any difficult adb commands here. For those that don't know, Rom Manager is basically the best. It is a UI overlay for things that are scary like flashing a recovery. It does it all for you, and even updates when needed. With a single click.

So for those with a shiny new G2x, go and get Rom Manager from the market, free and Premium available. Then simply click "Flash ClockworkMod Recovery" and the menu will appear like the photo above, and choose your G2x, easy as cake. Only takes but a few seconds. Oh and I took that screenshot using LG's screenshot feature on the G2x. Now all we need is some Gingerbread, or some CyanogenMod 7. Who wants to bet that CM7 comes first?

    Seems like the official Gingerbread is “just around the corner”. It was reported that T-Mobile brass confirmed this at the last two-coast events. So… I am ready to bet that we will see the official release before CM7 ;-)

    I still think CM7 will be here first.. nightlys are coming any night now me thinks. I can’t see T-Mobile releasing an OTA for Gingerbread within 3 weeks of a device release. That would be amazing but it will probably take a little longer than that.

    Either way I’ll be running CM7 myself :)

    i prefer nvflash. doing things the hard way and learning are the only things that have saved my ass over the years. but to each his own.

    Not a true flash, if you get stuck in a boot loop you are screwed. This only allows you to get to CWM recovery from the app. You need to use nvflash for a true recovery flash so you can get to it from boot. Read the forums so you can post something more accurate.
