Re: looking for roms , optimus slider
There are no available ROMs built for the Optimus Slider in ICS or JB.
However, there are plenty of ROMs available in GingerBread. All are pretty stock in functions, but most have performance enhancements such as zipalign, or V6 Turbo, and are reskinned by the Dev.
Gelato: [ROM][Team Hydro] Gelato 11-28 For Virgin Mobile Optimus Slider
EngDroid: [ROM]EngdroidQ LGL55C (ST Optimus Q)
CyanBread: [ROM] [Team Hydro] LG L55C (Optimus Q) CyanBreadX Mod
Mobster Rom: [ROM] [VM701] Mobster Rom v1.4 update: 5/28
Area Rom Q: [ROM] [AndroidArea51] AreaRomQ v1.5 (L55C)
All of these ROMs have strengths and weaknesses whether it be design or whatever the developer chose to enhance performance. It's up to you to decide what ROM works and looks best for you.
There are no current Cyanogenmod Based ROMS available.
ROMS, Read Only Memory, is simply the operating system the phone runs, much like Windows 7, 8, Ubuntu, Mac OS, Debian, Unix, etc. etc. With Android, Google provides a framework code and developers are given generally free range on how to customize and streamline the OS. Which gives us custom ROMS.
A small article for more information: Custom ROMs For Android Explained - Here Is Why You Want Them
Gingerkernal: [KERNEL][GB] GingerKernel v07.1 (NOW FOR THE OPTIMUS SLIDER!)
Essentially kernels are what boot the Android OS, it starts it's main function and tells the hardware on the phone what to do to get the phone to run. Modifications can be done to the code in order to more efficiently run instructions, which is what custom kernels are.
For more info Wikipedia will be your friend: Kernel (computing) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
There are no overclocking features typically included in Slider kernels since the processor comes off the factory line pre-overclocked.
ROMS and Kernels are most typically installed via a custom recovery once you have rooted your phone. Since it seems you are new to the world of Android ROMs, look here:
