Most users get really excited when source-built, AOSP-based ROMs show up for their devices. When CM, AOKP, or ParanoidAndroid hit a new device, it’s a pretty big deal. Afterward, modders and tweakers try to make it even more customized. LG Optimus One users now have a tool to help customize the CM experience.
The tool is called CM10 ROM Editor, and it’s a pretty easy tool to use. It was released by XDA Senior Member bill.weckel, and it’s compatible only with the members of the LG Optimus One family. CM10 ROM Editor is, as stated, pretty simple. According to bill.weckel, here are the features:

For those unfamiliar, TWRP stands for Team Win Recovery Project. It’s an open source recovery for Android devices that offers an advanced touch-based UI and Open Recovery Script support, as well as several other features not offered in other recoveries.
This port comes courtesy of XDA Senior Member Ron G, and based on the user response, it is working virtually bug-free on the device. Installation is as simple as flashing the provided file from your existing recovery.

In many cases, when you update to a new version of Android, it can be difficult to climb back down to an older version. We’ve brought you coverage on various methods for different devices, and some of them are downright dangerous. However, if done correctly, you can update in a manner that will let you go back should you want or need to. One such method has recently been released for the LG Optimus One P500.
The method is a modified version of a dual booting application originally developed by XDA Recognized Developer Tasssadar. Called MultiROM, the original app couldn’t support different kernels. In essence, you had to run both ROMs on the same kernel. And naturally, you can’t use the same kern. . . READ ON »

Although LG’s latest addition to the Optimus family and Virgin Mobile exclusive Optimus V is yet to have its own official home here at XDA, work in the Android Software Development section of the site has demonstrated that the device can easily be rooted – and within a week of its release!
The device is actually very similar to Sprint’s Optimus S, and is a variant of the Optimus One (whose section on the forums is located here). As a result, it isn’t a shock to learn that the Optimus V is also rootable using the SuperOneClick method.
LG announced last year that they would be rolling out Gingerbread updates for all Optimus One phones at some time in the future.

Well, all of you P500 owners that were suffering due to the device not exactly performing the way it should have, we have news for you. Most of your functionality issues are due to a bug in the stock kernel that causes the CPU usage to shoot up all the way to 100% whenever the screen is tapped. This basically translates into your device begging for mercy whenever you try to use it for anything, and don’t get us started on playing games. Luckily, XDA member mik_os has come up with a fixed kernel that addresses this issue and therefore brings new life to this device. The kernel itself is still being thoroughly tested, but once its finished, it promises to be that which you have been desperately waiting for.
Have you us. . . READ ON »

It seems that the little green guys keeps taking on different forms and shapes, and as a result of that, we keep finding new places for them to live and prosper. The latest 3 to grace the wonderful xda-developers with their presence are the Motorola Droid Pro, which resembles the offspring of a Blackberry and a Droid, another member of the LG family, the Optimus P500, and finally, our second tablet forum ever the Viewsonic G. Each and everyone of these devices has its unique features that characterize them, which have given them a home on XDA. If you have some ideas, know about some developments going on for any of these, or simply would like to write down your thoughts, make sure that you visit the different fora.
