TWRP Ported to the LG Optimus One P500
Do you have an LG Optimus One P500, and are you looking for an extremely flashy custom recovery? You’re in luck, as TWRP recovery is now available for the Optimus One.
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.

You can find more information, the complete feature list and the download link in the forum thread.
