Looks like the LG G2X is finally getting its own taste of Ice Cream Sandwich, a bonus of a little fire. We’re talking about the Hellfire Sandwich custom ROM assembled by XDA Developers member x0xhellx0x, which is currently in its alpha build.
Unfortunately, the Hellfire Sandwich custom ROM is not yet functional enough to be used daily. But, all great things are realized in baby steps, and addressing bugs and known issues is already underway. It shouldn’t take long for us to see a more stable build of the Hellfire Sandwich custom ROM soon.
According to the developer, unnecessary keyboards and live wallpapers have been removed from the ROM. Though, it includes Hellpaper, boot animation, MIUI battery bar, an updated Trebuchet launcher, Torch, and the Phoenix music player.
At the moment, Hellfire Sandwich v1.1 unfortunately does not come with GApps so you will need to flash it yourself.
