CyanogenMod 7 Released for LG P350
The LG P350, also known as the LG Optimus ME Titanium, is a mid range device that is pretty affordable. If that isn’t enough, it also has received CyanogenMod 7.
XDA Member pax0r has been kind enough to compile the mega popular ROM to this humble device and while the ROM is still a beta, it’s got enough features working to use as a daily driver for some people.
The list of features not working is very short and only includes a small break in the camera where users can’t see previews. However, the camera does still take pictures. This doesn’t mean there aren’t more, as pax0r states:
It’s testing and still WIP release so there still could be bugs.
Before installing, make sure you pick up the LG Optimus ME compatible custom recovery from the link and always take the proper precautions such as creating a full backup. Once you’ve got the proper prerequisites, though, it’s all a matter of installing the ROM.
For additional information, the installation instructions, download links and if you just want to keep updated on the progress, you can find all that and more in pax0r’s original thread.

But even handsets like the Galaxy S5 managed to be outperformed by low range devices. Android enthusiasts as a whole took disdain in Samsung's...
