    Use the ability to disable the apps in apps info menu. This is a standard in ICS. You won't soft brick doing this. I will redo my build box during work. That's the only free time I get during the week.

    Yeah done that, thanks though. I want to strip this down to the very bare bones and get all unnecessary software off the unit, not just the Amazon and Verizon bloatware.

    No problem. And I just had my first scare of this phone. Was going to bed after replying to my last post, and my curiosity was getting to me. Did a quick look and saw that the Optimus 4x has a bootstrap recovery. Long story short, the CAB file for this phone can repair recovery bricks. Glad to know. Good night... /wiping sweat off my face.

    Yes it was that Cab file that saved my back end after I bricked the unit the first time and each time since.

    Alright. From what I have checked out, it seems that LTE2recovery is working. Except that it shows nothing on the screen. From what I found, it seems that it has CWM version 5.0.2.7. I am trying to see if I can run a backup but I can't remember the steps. Until I get home and load up CWM on one of my other phones to get the steps or someone can post the steps to do a backup with CWM (Used TWRP for my Rezound, that why I can't remember the steps.). If that is the issue, this is beyond my knowledge. The LTE2 recovery should work from what I looked at with the APK uncompressed.

    Hello to all and specially the former X2 family members. We had a great time pushing that device to the max thanks to DZK and his work. That in itself was enough to make me too anxious to get a newer device that would be proper for ICS/JB and whatever else the future holds! I am absolutely glad I decided to get the Spectrum 2. I stayed in the V store for about an hour messing with different devices, but for some reason this one just spoke to me, and that was before I found out how cheap the price tag was. I was going to use the Moto $100 rebate and get an RAZR HD for $99 but then they told me they would give me $26 for the X2 if decided not to go Moto. The Spec2 was on sale for $49 so i ended up getting it for $24 after trade-in ! dancedroid
    I honestly think this is a nicer device than the RAZR HD,specially the IPS screen! Im glad to see some progress being made for this awesome device and hopefully we can push it for a long time like DZK does for the X2. .......now pass the Jelly please! :D

    Glad to hear you got this phone. It is a great phone. We have root and 2nd-init CWM recovery. The Korean variant, LTE2, did have an official Jelly Bean update, so hopefully we will very soon. But please do not install any of the custom ROMS from the LTE2. There is an issue with the touch screen getting messed up even after flashing back to the stock firmware. Welcome aboard!!!

    Thanks for the welcome! I rooted after I got home with it and then followed the bloatware guide and have not had any issues. I have searched all the droid communities I'm a member of for info the last 2 days. Is the CWM backup & recovery on here the one that the screen is black....where did I read that at ? lol! Too much late night reading on no sleep.

    Ha....never mind....went back one page and answered myself.....jeez..got to get it together. lol!

Also been playing BLOPS 2 and the new Devil May Cry. Sleep and I have not been getting along for a long time...LOL!

    I just noticed on the first page there was a dev who said he was going to try to get a spectrum 2 to develop, but I haven't seen anything else from him which is unfortunate, perhaps if he sees the current progress he might be able to help?

    First off, I didn't try AOKP on the phone. Been fighting off a nasty sinus infection after having an arterial tear in my nose. I am in meeting for most of the day at work, so I don't even know if I get any flashed today. But my replacement is at my house already. I did PM Miller from the first page to see if he ever got the phone. Hopefully he did.

    Got a PM back from Miller. He has not bought the device.
