LG Optimus P500 - Need Information on Latest Stable ROM's.


Hi Guys,

As you would all know I upgraded to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus phone. So my LG P500 is free for experiments.

Now I want to install some custom ROM's on my P500.

I did a Google search, but there are too many options out these.

My requirements:
-Very stable ROM required.
-All features should work.
-If its ICS, its a bonus. But I dont mind Gingerbread based one too.
-Google Market and other Apps is a MUST.

Do let me know of the options. I dont want it to be blazingly fast or powerful, but it should be very stable.

Let me know of your opinions with supporting links.

Re: LG Optimus P500 - Need Information on Latest Stable ROM's.

I did my research and finally settled on the Oxygen ROM which is supposed to be very stable.

So far:
-Much much faster, although not through sheer processing power.
-Lots of great little tweaks. Loved the battery % display along with the time display.
-Battery seems(?) to drain a bit faster. Will have to check after sometime.
-The older stock ROM had some cleaner icons, this is a not so crisp.
-Not yet tested with a SIM, so thats a big check needed to be done.

I was always hesitant to to use a Custom ROM for the usual fears of bricking etc, but the whole process was extremely smooth. The biggest headache would be the rooting, but the Custom Recovery and Custom ROM installation is less then 10 minutes work.

I hope this helps someone out.

This link was extremely useful:
[SOLVED] The best "STABLE" ROMs for LG Optimus One (GB and ICS) [Constantly Updated] - xda-developers
[ROM] [v2.8 - 19.05.2012] Oxygen ROM 2.3.2 (Android 2.3.7) - xda-developers

Purists can STFU regarding the first link. Sometimes one needs all the help they can get.

If the ICS ROM stabilizes after a few months, I will go for that. Gotta love the Development Community.
I paid for every App I used(ROM Manager, Titanium, etc) - as I would never have the dedication of those guys.

Well yeah, the most stable ROM is Oxygen and Good Old A8 by adfaad.

Though the link have been removed by adfaad for A8.

I'm still on A8 as none of the ICS ROM's are that stable yet.

Lets wait and watch the review of CM9 Final by hethehappy.

Re: LG Optimus P500 - Need Information on Latest Stable ROM's.

You want detailed steps for ICS? I dont think ICS is completely stable - so you might want to wait for a few months.

Else the process is very similar to any other ROM's.

Example:
LG Optimus-One Complete Flashing Guide - LG Optimus One General Mod - CyanogenMod Forum

Only difference - check if your phone is old or new baseband. I'm guessing its the new baseband. FOr more details check the link above.

Re: LG Optimus P500 - Need Information on Latest Stable ROM's.

Guys my friend has this phone and none of the emoticons are displayed when i send from my iPhone :!
Even basic smilies like "" are not displayed as emoticon

Is there a way to make it display the emoticons/emoji? Some custom ROM or tweak?

PS: Emoji is displayed when using GoSMS app but not anywhere else in the phone (other chat apps like kik, etc)

My wife sends me emoticons and I receive them accurately. And she uses an Android phone.

Could be an App specific problem.
