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.
from our post last week, this isn't the first time the G2X has been acting quirky. In that story, we reported screen bleeding affecting screen colors, especially on a black screen. Now this issue and it can only point to one thing ... Go Fever. Back in the 60s during the Apollo program, the ongoing worry was being so eager to get there that problems and defects were overlooked. And with the wild west competition for getting out the latest and greatest handset and riding the wave of hype and interest, it can often be easy to release a product first, and fix the bugs later in a firmware update. But quality control issues can also kill the wave, causing future users to look elsewhere. Fortunately, G2X users have been able to exchange the defective handsets for another. But if it's a design issue, it's not really clear what good that does. And if it's a software issue, then they'll have to wait for that update. Then again, it isn't happening to every G2X user just yet, so only time will tell what the answer is. Stay tuned. [via Gotta Be Mobile]
LG G2x. It doesn't have locked bootloaders, or any of those other issues all the Motorola and HTC phones have as of late. After day one we are already rooted, and running clockworkmod both on the G2x, next up is CyanogenMod.
along with the G-slate and Sidekick 4G and there is already reports coming in that there might be a few hardware issues that need to be worked out. Or some quality control. We have our very own review unit of the G2x and it was awesome. Nothing but great things to say about it, but we got another one and it had a serious issue. Backlight bleeding.
wild tests and real-world use tests, even playing some games on it, and here we've got the first big verdict.
