I know its possible to run optimus v roms on the optimus s (an xda thread had a conversion file to make a specific v rom run on the s) I have tried it with Bumblebee rom but unfortunately it did not work completely, it booted but wouldnt display anything but a back-lit black screen. I could lock it and turn the volume up and down (it played the up and down tones) but that was all.

My question is what must be changed to make it run properly? I know they are the same device except the hardware buttons, but since it didnt work i assume there must be more differences im not aware of.

Attempting to flash some different kernels
Xionia Redux allowed it to boot. Will test further

You have to be careful as well becuase they use different LCDs for both models witich means different drivers, that might be causing the LCD to not turn on properly
