LG GT540 Optimus Gets ICS

In this time of bleeding edge performance, older devices fall by the wayside as newer, better versions are released. The day a phone is sent to the low activity forum of XDA, is the day that the community officially aknowledges the end of a device’s useful life cycle; it means that development has slowed to a crawl and new ROM’s have all but stopped being produced.

The LG GT540 Optimus is one such device, however, developer mikegapinski refuses to let it die. You see not only did he build a custom ROM for the Optimus, but he built an ICS ROM. Your not reading that incorrectly. From his website:

USB/WIFI Tethering Working with alternative apps 80%
RIL Working 100%
Sound Working 100%
Headset Working 100%
Touchscreen Working 100%
HW/3D Little issues 80%
Screen Working 100%
ADB Working 100%
SDCard Working 100%
Vibration Working 100%
Sensors Working 100%
WiFi Working 100%
3G Working 100%
Bluetooth Working 100%
GPS Working 100%
Camera Not working 0%

If you own a GT540 Optimus, check out his website here and give the ROM a whirl and also hit up the discussion thread. Your phone will thank you for it.

Well as of this morning an interesting development has come from my - currently - favorite smartwatch company. They will release the Pebble Time Steel variant alongside the regular Pebble, instead of say a whole release cycle down the road. The accompanying announcement along with the Steel,...

LG G Pro Lite Unsecured Boot Image and CWM Recovery

The LG G Pro Lite D680 is a budget phone that was released in 2013 alongside the LG Optimus G Pro, LG's 2013 flagship device. Unfortunately, it hasn't received much development attention so far… but XDA Recognized Developer laufersteppenwolf has now released an unsecured boot.img along with a CWM recovery.
