    Hello all, I am pretty new here and thought I would introduce myself before I start pounding you with questions. So I'm dstaks, and like the rest of you I'm interested in upgrading this basic optimus v 2.2.2 I have. I have been doing alot of reading on ROMS and honestly I feel lost. I don't know where to begin. I numbered my questions if that helps, but if there is a noob section, mods please move my thread. Apologies...

    1. Do I need service before I Rom?

    2. Can I use Backside? Or is there something better...

    3. I know I need a recovery and I think Image creator, where do I get those?

    1. If you plan on using your phone as a phone, you should.

    2. Backside is no longer supported, I personally recommend mirage

    3. You don't need image Creator, download cannibal open touch (or the recovery in the sticky) and flash according to the guide.

    I also recommend MiRage, The developer(mrg666) is ACTIVELY improving the Kernel and the OS itself for this phone, so you will always be pretty much up to date

    I also recommend Canibal Open Touch. Its easy to use, VERY POWERFUL, and full of features

    Thank You Thank You!!!! So I found them and Downloaded Open Touch and the MiRage Build to the computer. I did download the LG Driver, so what would be next? Which gets installed first to the SD card?

    then gapps...
    (dont forget to nand/backup your original rom after installing recovery before wiping and flashing new rom/etc)...
