A little over a month ago, CM 10.2 began rolling out for the LG G2 and now it has reached a point of stability. Using CM 10.2 for a month was a pleasure and almost bug free experience. Now CM 11 is being rolled out for all of the variants of the G2 and it is looking promising. The home screen with transparent navigation buttons and a transparent status bar is my favorite feature and finally the big black bars are gone. There are a few issues with smoothness in animations and battery life, but being a nightly I am sure they will be fixed quickly. Head on over to the CyanogenMod download page and check for your device.
While the LG G2 is by far my favorite phone on the market, the stock LG software is somewhat buggy. There are hiccups while scrolling in certain menus and way too many wake locks for a newly set up phone. These problems and more were solved with the release of CyanogenMod version 10.2 for the LG G2. Currently both the D800, D802 and the VS980 are supported and there are nightly builds being released. The experience is far superior to that of the LG user interface and the stability and performance of this nightly build is remarkably impressive.
The battery life is also fantastic due to the minimal amount of wake locks. The device when in sleep remains in sleep and gains the amazing battery life that was expected from the start. On initial installation, cLock keeps a lock on the GPS but after disabling it and rebooting, the device has been flawless.
The LG G2 has been the all around most powerful phone I have ever used and as a small testament to its power I have benchmarked it using AnTuTu, Quadrant and 3DMark (Extreme and Unlimited). The scores are much higher than what was shown in the reviews and the AnTuTu score was taken before any modifications were made (root and custom recovery).
Quadrant Standard: 20192
3DMark (Ice Storm Extreme 1080p): 9909 Maxed Out
3DMark (Ice Storm Unlimited 1080p): 16196
A small OTA update was pushed to all D80210b-AME devices last night. This update comes as a relatively small 13.23mb download. There has been no information posted relating to this update but installing the update with a custom recovery is not recommended. If it is installed with TWRP already on the phone, it will remain stuck in a bootloop. Luckily, if this happens to you, as happened to me, you can follow the directions stated by thecubed on his xda post found here (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2451696). Please leave a comment if you know what the update addressed.
These commands are to be run while the phone is in ADB mode in the recovery to be able to boot past the recovery. After these commands reboot and cross your fingers.
