    I will be getting my Spectrum 2 Wed. I'm coming from Rezound and getting this phone as a replacement. Everything I read has been good about this phone. One question, since we have root, has anyone been able to get Wifi Tether to work. I use it religiously with the Rez to tether my work laptop to surf the net. Is there any good tether app, wifi, bluetooth, or USB?

    I managed to get WiFi Tether to work by using the generic ICS/JB Wlan0 profile. You can download it free from here: android-wifi-tether - Wireless Tether for Root Users - Google Project Hosting

    I do thank you. That is the same wifi tether program I am using with my Rez. I have 3.2 beta 2. Is that the one you are using? I'm getting stoked now for this phone.

    Edit: I just read that you want to see about getting ICS AOSP running on this phone. If the bootloader is locked, do we need to used the 2nd INIT method? Wonder if that would be easier to build a custom ROM like Motorola devices?

    I am using the 3.1 beta 14 but I would imagine the version you are using will work just the same, I am not sure how I will go about getting custom ROMS on the device as it was just an idea I was playing with if there is no one else that makes anything for this awesome phone. I am soon going to start my next semester so I won't have much time to work on it, but if there is still nothing by May I might start developing something myself so keep fingers crossed for a better dev to pick up this phone and make something.

    Thanks for your answer... now i am trying to leave work early to get my phone. You may want to head over to androidforums to see what was posted about the LG Optimus LTE2. There is someone that did get 2nd INIT recovery to boot and has a working CM10 rom in his github. I'm not sure if it would work on the Spec2, but the recovery has worked on the LG Motion. May take a swing after the weekend, I just hate to brick this new phone until I get to have some fun with it.

    Edit: Been playing with this phone for 3 hours. Rooted it with no problems. Thanks micrors4 again for Wifi Tether help. I had to downgrade to the market version but it is working great. Now time for some BLOPS 2 online.

    If this wasn't my main phone I would try it but without a known way to unbrick these devices I'm not sure I want to try this, but let me know if you do try it and how it works out.

    You can recover from a Soft Brick from the link below, but I can understand your concern. I am due to receive mine today, after rooting I will see about what else can be done. I am just hoping someone figures out how to unlock the bootloader, then we can have some fun.

    I'm going to look around this weekend about the 2nd init recovery for the LTE2, if I have time. I am going to look at the Droid X source for thier 2nd INIT bootstrap. I still have my Droid X. I will also clear my Rezound build box and pull the LTE2 CM10 code from github to see if it's compatilble. I'm not a programmer by any means but this phone needs to get some love. I see that Neph is a good guy to talk to about this phone. Is there any other LG guys that we could talk to? Someone that is up for a challenge.

    Alright. I did find the 2nd init bootstrap to recovery. The guy who did all the work is 95hPaKicK. Seems like this guy is very busy. He's a Korean dev that has a lot of phones. He setup a github with his work. Just go to github and look up his work. He does have a stable CM10 for the LTE2, the Korean version of the Spectrum 2. I did take a peek at the code. I'm not a 100% percent if it would work. This is my first LG smartphone, so I'm not sure the compatiblity with the US\foreign couterparts. I did load up the bootstrap recovery. It is same bootstrap program as the Droid X. It does say Success when I had it flash the recovery. It does reboot but I get a black screen. This could be happening since I grabbed the recovery from a thread for the Motion 4g. I was able to reboot the phone by hitting the power button twice, so something is there lurking in the dark. I did PM 985hPaKick at XDA but he has not been logged in since Nov. Hopefully he will pop in over there and shoot me a message. I may have some time to tomorrow to look at more but I may be hitting my limit also. Let's hope for the best with this phone.
