    So I just got off the phone with LG, heres what he had to say. LG knows that their is a screen leak problem and they are currently working on the problem. LG WILL NOT cover this issue under a manufacturers warranty because, it "does not effect the function of the phone" Really? I am on my second G2X and a friend is on his third and we are both having screen leak issues. I suggest that you install iDraw! to give yourself a black screen to see what I am talking about. If you are under your 14 days of purchase I suggest you return your phone and wait for the remanufacturing. LG makes the screens for Apple and this is one of the reasons why the iPhone was delayed; because Apple insisted that LG fix the problem BEFORE they would release the iPhone. Why cant LG stand behind their products as well? I wont even go into the GPS issues, who cares now... What gives LG?

    The only GPS issue is a missing gps.conf file, I fixed that and my O2X's GPS is miles better than my Nexus One.

    Just pushed gps.conf from another phone (had my N1 handy) to /system/etc

    Ok, now I'm a little worried...
    I have a LG2x for 2 weeks now and have been trying all sorts of things with it.
    One of them being the GPS.
    I haven't installed any navigation software (yet...), just using the on-board Google Maps, but the GPS seems to work ok!
    What exactly does that file do?
    (by the way, in fact I DON'T have that file under /system/etc either).

    GPS will work without it. The file speeds up locktime by grabbing info from the net.
