ThundeROM for Optimus T?
So, I took a peek into the Optimus S forums and noticed that Beezy and KSmithInNY had created a custom ROM. Is there any chance of a port to the Optimus T? I will gladly be the test monkey for it and report back. Fair warning though, I'm a complete noob with regards to Android. If I'm being greedy or out of line, please put me in my place. I'm just a little jealous :o

We don't need source to build a ROM. You need source to modify a kernel. Considering we could just leave the stock kernel in .... we don't need source at all. We need a vehicle to get the ROM onto your phone once we make it. The stock recovery will only flash something signed by LG, and we're not LG, that translates into = you need a custom recovery.
Someone is working on it but i think other people need to test it out because the guy working on making the recovery doesn't have this phone so he cannot do any testing. Neither Beezy nor I have this phone either so we cannot assist. This is going to have to be something the Optimus T clan does themselves, then once you have it we can whip up a ROM.
We're more than happy to ROM you guys up but focus on the recovery, the rest will come.[CENTER][URL="https://plus.google.com/u/0/+KPSmith/posts"]Follow me on Google +

Here is a recovery for you guys! Tested Working on xda by Joesph Mother
Let ThundeRom for T commence.
Please check md5 of 82deaeec44c9b6b7095efcfa31fee099 prior to flashing
See my recovery section in opt s Here for description of features and I'll build a full release version soon with proper credits etc.
Only thing I'll change is remove test naming fyi.
To install extract the recovery.zip (linked above) and flash_image.zip (from opt s post) and copy those to the ROOT of sdcard.
To flash recovery from root # shell do these commands. If install-recovery.sh doesn't exist on your phone just move to next step.
# mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock1 /system # cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image # chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image # mv /system/etc/install-recovery.sh /system/etc/install-recovery.sh.bak # mount -o remount,ro -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock1 /system # flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-RA-GNM-OPT-T-test.img # reboot recovery
If you would like to back up your stock recovery you can do it via this command from a root shell PRIOR to flashing recovery
dd if=/dev/mtd/mtd2 of=/sdcard/recovery-dump-T.img bs=4096

Any news? I'm working on my GFs new phone (which means I can't sign up to be a guinea pig).
After the custom recovery is set (and I can get a incredible for her to use while I play...) I'm more than up for helping in any developmental work I can (I'm well versed in root/roming as I have an OG droid and have done lots of playing.)
