Optimus 4X HD gets a breath of fresh air with bootloader unlock and Jelly Bean leak

After being tightly locked down, the Optimus 4X HD has gotten a breath of fresh air with its bootloader getting unlocked. Jelly Bean has also been leaked for the device.
March 9, 2013

The Optimus 4X HD was one of LG’s better devices in 2012 despite having a rough launch. The device had some very bad software issues, which were mostly fixed in future updates. No hacking or fiddling with the software could go on because of how tightly locked down it was though.

Due to its lack of third-party support, the device didn’t take off so well. That’s about to change though. Jelly Bean has been leaked and the bootloader has been unlocked. There’s even a ClockworkMod Recovery ready for users to fire up. While this is all great news, it’s a bit more complicated than most processes.

Before messing around with Jelly Bean, the bootloader and the ClockworkMod Recovery, it’s highly suggested that you do some careful reading. Hopefully all of this will breath a little life into the phone. If you have a Optimus 4X HD, be sure to hit the source link where you can find more information.
