    What baseband are you running (e.g. ZVD or ZVH)?

    Have you installed a custom recovery yet?

    ROM
    HydroROM

    Regardless of baseband, this is a really loaded question. Honestly, just try them all and see which one works best for you.

    Default Re: Best (or highest recommended) ROM for Optimus S

    If you're running zvd, I'm pretty sure the only alive ROM is kraven's cm7.for zvh, things are a little more complicated. To flash anything, though, you NEED a custom recovery.

    ROM
    LeWa/Bobzhome

    Default Re: Best (or highest recommended) ROM for Optimus S

    I have tried all the ROMs for ZVH, I liked them all.

    First, performance wise gROM, HydroROM, and YourMomROM are all about equal because they all utilize or can utilize @drewwalton19216801 's amazing kernel and can be over clocked.

    Features wise I preferred YourMomROM because of the pull down power options. HydroROM was perhaps just a touch too blue, but I loved the backgroud that came with it. The Blue was fine at first but got to me after about a week. gROM is great because it comes "preloaded" with flash, but any of the other ROMs will run flash just download and side load the .apk. That's my $.02 anyway.

    If you get the chance try them all, the devs put a lot of hard work into their ROMs and all of them make this phone way more awesome than it was ever intended to be.

    ROM
    4.1.1

    Default Re: Best (or highest recommended) ROM for Optimus S

    gROM has a great boot animation, loads looking like pure gingerbread and uses a stock launcher. Plenty of themes available. YourMOM has an LG launcher and the toggle pulldowns. No themes for YourMOM though.

    thekraven's CM7.2 is amazing. I was on gRom and YourMom Rom too but I personally prefers thekraven's.

    I tried 11.0 on my CM7 and found that 10.2 seems to work better on my phone... not as laggy/glitchy.

    You should go to a community forum (such as AndroidCentral.com) that has loads of information about the device, custom recoveries and ROMs, and an extensive user base. When you get there, be sure to ignore all of the resources, call someone they don't know names, and then just ask ambiguous questions in any thread you please. Or you could be a reader. Just sayin'...

    learn as much as you can about rooting, roms, kernals, recoveries, themes, android in general as you can.

    google is your friend.
