    Are there any ROMs available for the LG Optimus V based on the Android 2.3 Gingerbread build?

    Not yet. Apparently all Optimus line phones will get Gingerbread eventually.

    Will rooting the phone interfere with manufacturer's updates to the phone?

    You don't want to accept any OTA while rooted or you could lose root...

    You should wait for a rooted version to come out and flash that

    Also pertinent and in the spirit of being useful along with not cluttering up the forum with duplicate threads.

    Your point?

    Nah, j/k. In all seriousness, I bricked my first go on the VM670. I got the root in place and installed ROM Manager, but the custom recovery failed with a blank screen. I accidentally factory reset (i say accidentally because I did not know at the time) and the rest was history.

    New phone - installed root (via gingerbreak) and then ROM manager - same issue. So I used ADB to flash the "xionia_cwma_12518.4_virgin.img" to recovery and am now at least able to boot into that.

    From here I am hesitant to do anything else as last time it failed - but I did perform the stupid factory reset after MODding...

    As Jerry said do not EVER use rom manager on this phone. It causes way too many problems

    I would use hormonia 2 its a great rom!! Here you can get an Ideal of how to do it.. http://m.youtube.com/index?desktop_uri=%2F&gl=US#/watch?v=l_POvZaMlOk
    just don't use rom manager, instead use vm670NH recovery, once in recovery mold you'll have the same options to backup,wipe,format,etc. Keep on mind that I don't know if this recovery will work with the new ov screen aka 2.2.2 ,because I got this ov when they first came out!!! To flash this recovery use an app called flashimageGUI.apk

    VM670NH.img works on old and new screens. The recovery rom manager flashes will result in black screened recovery on new screens

    Thanks for conferring that this recovery ( VM670NH RECOVERY.IMG )works also with new screens and like I said before don't use Rom manager, it will mess up your phone.. I just pasted that video """to get an ideal on how to wipe,format,flash a new Rom."""'
