The Wonderful ROMs of Our Amazing Optimus V! 9/18/12
Well around the site I've noticed a lot of people asking for good ROMs, or asking for a stable ROM, etc etc.
Why can't they look around the site? I have no idea laziness, can't find their mouse, they're hands suddenly stopped working, they're scared, or maybe they just can't figure out how to work a computer? BUT, this thread is for those people. So they can look around, see for themselves what they are looking for and which ROM suits their style. I'll be posting our public OV ROMs here. Their Dev, if they're stable, and description (if included). If I missed one or you want yours added (if I haven't put it up yet) please comment below. There won't be a download link here BUT a link to the appropriate thread since some ROMs get lost in the forums with all the endless threads.
Note- This will get updated as more ROMs are born, they die, get requested, they become stable, they switch owners, or they become unsupported.
If you want me to update something (change the description, change the name, change the dev?) or if you want me to remove your ROM from the list, don't hesitate to say so.
So here we go.
EXCELLENT Froyo ROMs
-Stable? Since it's Froyo, OF COURSE.
-Description: This rom is based off LeslieAnn's Aeneas Rom. It is designed to be as smooth as Jean-Luc Picard, fully functional as Data and as sexy as William Riker. It began as just a learning experience and then I decided, why not upload it. I would have liked a Rom like this when I first started rooting and modding my OV.
Rhode Utility (Froyo activation/troubleshooting):
-Stable? Sort of. it's not intended for every day use
-Description: This is a very small, lightweight Froyo rom you can download and flash fast that includes a few utilities we often use when things go wrong, i.e. protection. This is NOT meant to be used as a daily rom, it is a tool for those times you need to re-activate, or troubleshoot something. It has the same genetics as Harmonia 1, but more stripped down for a specific purpose. It works on both old and new Optimus V phones.

Harmonia 1.87 Froyo (Aphrodite+Picasticks)
-Description: The idea is pretty much a bare rom, based on the stock rom, but with updates/tweaks/and things that should have been included but weren't, that you add your themes and such to, You won't find any bloat, what is here is here because it needs to be and not much more. This allows you to create the phone you want without anything you don't want or need. Just a lean, mean phone, your way.

Aeneas Froyo Build Your Own Rom
-Description: B.Y.O.R. = Build Your Own Rom.
That's right, you are welcome to take this rom, tear it apart, make your own from it and share it. and you do not need to understand Linux at all. This is meant as a learning experience as well as a way to get people started messing with roms and just see what people come up with. So have fun with it. Please remember to thank those who help you accomplish your ideal rom.

-Developer: obijohn (formerly) , anthonycr (currently)
-Stable? Of Course.
-Description: Early in 2011, user obijohn created a ROM based on the stock 2.2.1 froyo ROM that combined speed, overclocking, and lightweight characteristics into one lightning fast, battery efficient driver for the Optimus V. Unfortunately, development died off for this incredible ROM for various reasons and Bumblebee faded into the cyber-darkness, re-emerging occasionally as naive users flashed the incompatible ROM with their new screens.Now, combining the picasticks kernel (compatible with the new screen) with the old Bumblebee ROM, this fantastic ROM can now be experienced by the whole OV community.

Amazing Gingerbread ROMs!
-Description: OM-Mandylion started out as IHO-Alien out of boredom and geekness and cannibalizing other roms, OM-Mandylion as grown into its own stand alone IHO ROM. OM=The symbol of absolution. Mandylion=A mythical creator that is the bringer of peace.
SIII for the Optimus V
-Description: n/a click on the following link for more info.

Magpie (tvall's IHO stuff)
-Stable? Yes c:
-Description: This is the way i think moving apps to ext should be done. There are no extra apps, no scripts, no flashing extra stuff, no breaking on rom updates. It is all built in to the ROMs framework. magpie is a kang of the a2sd feature found in cm5, ported to cm6 and 7 by @firer4t. Just go into the manage apps menu, and there is now a button to move to ext right next to the usual move to sd one. it just works. moving apps back is as simple as pressing the move to phone button. simple, works. this is a nearly pure build of iho, only differences are the removal of fm.apk, and the use of bobzhome v3.7 kernel
-Description: This is a GingerBread themed rom to look like Samsung TouchWiz. This is still a Work In Progress
Harmonia 2.08 19
-Stable? There are small bugs but there are fixes for them
-Description: The idea is pretty much a bare rom, based or as close as possible to what a stock rom should have been, that you add your themes and such to. You won't find any bloat, what is here is here because it needs to be and not much more. This allows you to create the phone you want without anything you don't want or need. Just a lean, mean phone, your way. Harmonia 2 is basically a stock GB factory style rom (based on Mirage), similar to how Harmonia 1 is a tweaked stock rom. However, it is still built from IHO.

Joyfully Optimus (Ported)
-Stable? Yes. Has small bugs but nothing big.
-Description: This is an ios style rom for The optimus v, that is a port of Joy OS
-Link: Joyfully Optimus
-Description: Following the original IHO thread has become too difficult due to its enormous size and simultaneous discussion of many other builds. MiRaGe is a barebones/basic ROM closely following CyanogenMod.
G-T-R Reloaded (Ported)
-Developer: Neko95 (original) , ThatGuyLurkin (ported version)
-Stable? Yes. Very little-no bugs.
-Description: ROM is based of the MRG's rom. FEATURES: BETTER GAMING EXPERIENCE | GREAT AUDIO QUALITY FOR MUSIC LOVERS| COOL USERINTERFACE! | FASTER NET SURFING | FAST GPS LOCATION FIX! | ALL IN ONE PACK ROM!
-Link: G-T-R Reloaded
CyanMobile Experience for the OV
-Stable? Very little bugs. All important things work
-Description: CyanMobile is a completely opensource project. It has features from CM9 and AOKP backported to it. This ROM is great for those who want AOKP, but can't run ICS on their phone.
-Stable? Some bugs, and APN needs to be changed manually.
-Description: Our company “Lewatek” was founded in April 2011. We focus on the modifications for cell phones operating systems based on the Android platform. At the very beginning when we established our company, we got angel investment from the Green Pine capital partners. Our team is very experienced in smartphone researching and user experience designing. Right now, we provide many ROMs for Android cell phone users, and we would like to improve it with everyone who uses it. Our products had been accepted by varieities of chip manufacturers, cell phones design houses, ODM integration service providers, Chinese brand marketers and cell phone companies. We are looking forward to provide the best Android operation system and services.
-Stable? Yes, and vwith lots of customization.

This project is a continuation of doixanh's personal ROM, known as GingerDX.
("Ginger" as in "Gingerbread", and "DX" as in short for "doixanh")
Brought to you by Team GingerDX:
eagleeyetom and djnilse
As set in stone by doixanh, the main goal is to have a fast, smooth and lightweight CM7 based ROM with some special features.
-Stable? Yes with a few bugs and some workarounds
-Description: While looking in the Galaxy Ace Forums I found this ROM. This ROM looks awesome so I decided to port it. It's basically a highly ICS themed and transparent CM7 ROM. I made a few modifications in the process. Also, I honestly don't know why it's called Democracy ROM & GApps are included.
-Stable? Yes with a few bugs
-Description: While looking in the LG GT540 Forums I found this ROM. This ROM looks awesome so I decided to port it. It's basically a MIUI ROM completely resized for MDPI devices to increase smoothness. I made some modifications in the process. Also, GApps are included.
-Link: HTX MIUI
-Description: This is a rom Based on Optimus S Sprint ZVJ Community Rom. Its themed with UOT Kitchen in blue... because i like blue . This is very much a WIP because its my First Rom Project I've released to the Community. AKA I'm still learning guys so take it easy on me! Any Suggestions will be considered and appreciated.
GingerSnap 1.4.0 (ported)
-Stable? As most of our gingerbread roms, this is a very stable rom.
-Description: Ginger Snap is the successor of Gamer's Talho Rom (GTR) and Moto RAZR-UI, this ROM is based on CM7.2 latest nightlies build, basically it's an optimized Ginger Bread ROM with some customization and modifications, light weighted bareboned ROM, meant to be slick, fast and slimmed a typical user and gamers would like to have. Now Ginger Snap offers the look and feel of Stock LG ROM. Everyone love's the stock ROM but we had some problems because its NOT customizable and not as FAST as CM in terms of performance and smoothness, that is why the IDEA of getting the stock ROM looks and feel with CM features and performance will be the best combination will ever had for our devices.
Wonderful Ice Cream Sandwich ROMs!
