LG Optimus 4X HD is one of the best flagship smartphones from LG, few days back we heard that since the device got the Android 4.1 update it was now possible to unlock the bootloader which makes the Optimus 4X HD more developer friendly as compared to how it was initially with a locked bootloader. As soon as this happened some Recogonized developers from the XDA forum got to work and came up with multiple ROMs for the device.

CM11 was one of the roms that came up(The others include OmniROM and SlimKat), this is an unofficial port but it doesn’t matter as far as its working and the list of things working realy is fascinating considering its just an early build of the ROM.
