Summary: Purchase of a rooted used G2X, as I wanted to upgrade past Gingerbread 2.3.4, wasn't familiar with how to root, so I went with Constellation Leo's rooted phone over many other similarly priced. I asked him to put different ROM than his for purpose of upgrading OS and keeping google related stuff I rely upon. Arrived in better shape than expected. Seller was very flexible, helped me learn rooting/flashing and took to FedEx (used my account no.) at my request.
All-around great phone - wish custom ROMs were still being programmed for it...

Summary: Been running 4.1.1 on this for a while. Custom ROM (JB, but older). Solid, love the functionality. Could be speedier, but it's now an "older" phone, so what to expect? Overall does all that I need and does it well with some custom apps. Even today, for the price, this phone is worth every penny.
Summary: Lost money. I connected the phone to the pc through and the LG update program informed me that you had to update it. I pressed the OK button, I began updating and blocked in the middle of the process. Now no lights, not updated and I can not recover the previous configuration.
Summary: I've had this modke for about two years so when it stopped functioning properly, I thought it would be easier to just get another and not have to learn a new one. I had all the accessories and extra batteries. I'm not sure how the presets were different, but it took almost twelve hous and two calls to LG to get it to see the data and download. Could call and get online but couldn't download the apps.
