Just a while back, the Android 2.3.5 firmware was released for the Nexus S 4G and while that came out abruptly, RootzWiki forum member roman has managed to release this firmware for the T-Mobile LG G2x by using the latest CyanogenMod nightly commits to come up with a custom AOSP ROM named Trigger 2x. According to the him, the goal of this ROM is to add G2x specific functionality / features / fixes to CM7 along with some user customizability.

So what does this ROM have to offer? Let’s take a look into it.
- Based on Android 2.3.5 from the newest CM commits to the github.
- 1080p video recording.
- Custom, hard-reboot option added to fix data issues.
- Touch to focus camera.
- Clock options added: Hide, am pm, small am pm.
- Signal options: Hide, show dbm text & more.
- H icon instead of 4G.
- Optionally install Bloater to download extra GPS configurations to make it lock on super quick.
The ROM does have a few bugs to it such as:
- A typo in the camera menu when changing front / back cam. Both are named Back.
- A2DP Bluetooth is not working.
- CM7 bugs.
