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.

Glimpse Notifications: Easier Lockscreen Notifications

Lollipop brought a revamp to the lockscreen, taking away custom widgets but showing your notifications instead. If you're a fan of that, you might want an easier way to check your notifications as they come in, without losing your current lockscreen. Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications.
