    ROM
    Bean_Whiz-CM10v2.2.2CX

    Default Re: ROMs For LG Optimus V?

    The Best Froyo ROM is the Resurrected Bumblebee.
    The Best Gingerbread ROM is the MiRaGe.
    The Best ICS is ROM is the CAI
    The Best Jellybean is the SlimRom and a Galaxy S4 themed variant of it, Bean_Whiz.

    The CAI and SlimRom are both in the S forum. The Dev has included a Virgin Mobile patch.

    I currently am running the Bean_Whiz on my V.

    Is either the ICS or JB ROMS fully functional like MiRaGe is?

    Try the Bean_Whiz or the SlimRom (Jellybean). The only thing not working is the speaker phone.

    I didn't notice any difference in performance as long as I keep a watch on my RAM. I have only overclocked to 480MHz - 729MHz with interactiveX governor.
    The 2.2.2CX version is pretty stable and smooth.

    Wipe everything and format everything but the SD card.
    Format options are in the mounts and storage section.

    I ended up keeping backSIDE ROM with CM7.2, really like this one. In my opinion, Mirage SUCKED. But yeah to any newcomers, I HIGHLY suggest backSIDE IHO. But DO NOT FLASH GREEN MACHINE THEME.

    If you're runnin backside rom then you should have the theme chooser app, there are literally hundreds of different themes you can download from the playstore. Just make sure they're for cm7 and mdpi.

    On another note, MiRaGe rom is way better than backside. MiRaGe still has a dev lookin after it (thanks mrg666) ,backside is a dinosaur without a dev ...just my opinion, but i wouldn't be telling new members to run backside!
    Failing to prepare, is like preparing to fail!

    I'm also curious to find out? Mirage has been rock solid every time I've used it. Backside Was good but it has unfixed bugs and security holes that have been addressed in Mirage. They're both cm7.2 soo... What's not to like about it?

    In my experience, MiRaGe had a little tiny problem that I deemed too important in my opinion. Forgot what it was.

    But now I'm using BobZhome CM7.2 RC1, and since reading this thread I'm severely curious about SlimRom. Fixing to try it out.

    As far as KitKat goes, there's only one ROM and it's still in development. Still has a few bugs but damn near everything works. Bit more battery drain than I'm used to.
