    CM7

    USB mass storage doesn't work. Use airdroid or something similar.

    1.) Download cm7 ROM. I recommend the 7.2.0 stable version. http://get.cm/get/2Kz

    2.)Download 'he who shall not be named's old kernel here.
    Joban-2.08-Kernel.zip

    3.)Download Arjen's 6/19 P505 ICS Kernel.
    lgp505icskernel-19062012.zip

    4.)Wipe everything of course. (data,cache,dalvik,system)

    5.)Install rom

    6.)Flash the first kernel I posted made by 'he who shall not be named'.

    7.)Flash Arjens 6/19 p505 kernel.

    8.)Reboot, enjoy cm7.

    old baseband fix here for thrive users and 505 users that didn't do OTA update.OldBBFix_signed.zip

    ICS

    Everything works (including HD youtube, and USB mass storage, and WIFI tethering), except maybe radio. For working radio, try this CYBERICS rom Hardlight.github.com by HardLight

    1.) Download ICS rom here. 9.2.1 plus

    2.) Download djnoxd's beta4 kernel here : [KERNEL][3.0.8 / 3.0.68][Beta] LG Optimus One Family (by androidarmv6) - xda-developers

    3.) Flash rom, then flash kernel, then reboot.

    4.) Might have to flash OBBFIX if you have no network signal. OldBBFix_signed.zip

    JB

    1.) Download latest cm10 build by rashed here android [Jenkins]

    2.) Download ROM trimming tool by shinobisoft (bill.weckle) [ TOOL ][ WINDOWS ][ BETA ] OOne ROM Editor - xda-developers

    At the very least, have the program install english only latinIME (under build options), otherwise there will not be enough storage for google apps and I promise you the phone will not work correctly.

    3.) Flash Gapps for JB after flashing the trimmed rom. gapps-jb-4.2.1-light-20130107-signed.zip

    Note that Google Now does not work properly for our device. Its an ARMV7 feature only, and will likely never work for our old ARMV6 phones.

    Complete device reboot is not required. Rebooting is required but it's much easier to reboot the recovery.

    CWM Home->Advanced>Reboot Recovery

    Yep, or you can skip rebooting and flash all 3 in correct order at once.

    Hey all, just wondering if someone could comment on battery life using CM7. I'm really interested in a comparison between battery life using CM9 nightly's with Arjen's kernel and this working CM7.

    I have been running CM9 with Arjen's kernel now for almost 3 months. It seems to work great although I realize there are some camera/video issue and the bug with watching youtube videos. Right now I can keep GPS on all day and wifi on while I'm at home without having to charge more than at night while sleeping. That being said, my phone usage is pretty light (Checking email throughout the day, sending a dozen or so text messages, and maybe 2 or 3 phone calls less than 15 minutes).

    All that being said, how is battery life with working cm7?

    i think is a problem with the gsm networks available in that rom... i have found the v11h .dz that lg released like 2 months ago, and i'm cooking for me a rom and see if that works maybe the FOTA release was only for ATT&T and not for other networks o:

    CM7 working perfect here! Not one issue, finally!

    CM9 also has problems with tethering. Native tethering works but the phone reboots when shut off. I am tethering to the phoenix with my skyrocket on cm9 and native tethering is a must.
    On ICS, adhoc isn't supported so native tethering is real important to me and now it works great.

    Has anyone tested out the GPS in apps like Google Maps or Navigation or Tracks? I've had my p505 is several different states in all kinds of weather conditions and it seems like the GPS function in CM9 really sucks. It almost never finds my location. If it does, it seems to take several minutes to do so.

    Does GPS work well in CM7?

    Takes me somtimes 2-3 minutes to get gps lock. I also use the app fasterfix.

    I'm glad you are all enjoying as much as I am.

    Root the phone and install the app "rom manager". Flash recovery for optimus one old bb if you are on 2.2. If you are on 2.3 flash new bb. Then u can boot into recovery and flash the zip file. There are plenty of guides online already. Use google .

    I can't seem boot into recovery when I flash new bb on my p505 2.3 but when I flash old bb I can boot into recovery no problem. Will this cause me grief later?

    No
    You needed to flash OBB regardless for this phone.
    Only other option is the recoveries built for this phone.
    HAPPY MODING.

    Sorry for the excessive questions I'm simply apprehensive... Is there any way to retrieve my settings and apps from my backup and apply them to my new flashed rom?
