Custom Roms For LG Optimus One (P500) Updated 2012 New List
Last year,we released a list of some of the best custom roms for the highly popular budget smartphone LG Optimus One (P500).Well still the article is getting visitors in some numbers,so we decided to update the list of custom roms for Optimus One.
This time the list of custom roms will include roms based on CM7.2,MIUI and Android 4.0 Ice cream sandwich.If you still haven’t tried Ice cream sandwich taste on Optimus One,then you better look at one of our “how-to” guides on updating optimus one to ICS using CM9.
- Talho Rom: Talho Rom is a performance rom made especially for gamers.We have tested this Rom and the results are indeed amazing.The battery life is good too.
With this Rom you even get a choice between beats audio (HTC) and DSP manager.We have tested both beats audio and DSP manager with the rom,beats audio was found to give better results.For kernel you may use Roq kernel.
- Cm9 (ICS,CAF kernel): Back in January chances of having the latest android OS on optimus one was minimal as developers were finding it hard to fix hwacceleration and touchscreen.But,developer lulorip and few others have indeed worked their ass off to get CyanogenMod 9 work on optimus one,with which O1 users can taste and feel the ICS goodness.
The original port by lulorip is almost stable but this rom is based on CAF kernel and is more stable with more things working.
- PerfectPeso ( V2.3) : We still haven’t tested this rom on optimus one,but this one comes from xda member terret ,who in the past has provided with some best custom rom builds based on CM7 and also members at xdaforums have given a positive response about the rom.
- Cm7 nightlies with Bravia Engine,Beats Audio and Xloud : This is modded rom based on CM7.2 nightlies and includes Bravia engine ( better display),beats audio (better sound) and Xloud (better sound again).
- Windows Mango Themed Rom : Want to have Windows Mango OS ( Lumia 900 looks) on your optimus one,then you better flash this themed custom rom based on CM7.This rom comes from xda member.
- Oxygen Rom (2.3.2) : Oxygen rom is a custom rom which is available for a few devices.The custom rom is well known for its amazing battery backup and Simple + Minimal looks.The rom comes with Zero apps and if you are just a phone user and not a gamer,then this is the rom for you.
Oxygen Rom has been ported over to P500 by Popdog123 (xda member) and is based on android GB 2.3.7.
- Ginger Snap (2.0) – This one is Talho’s Gamer’s Rom reloaded version.If you loved the old Talho Rom,then you are going to love this one as well.This one is based on CM7.2 latest nightlies build and is a highly optimized Gingerbread ROM.
This ROM is perfect for gaming performance.You can easily change the look to that of Ice cream sandwich by installing a theme.The best performance FPS of this rom reaches more than 64.3.
- Unofficial CM10 Jelly Bean (4.1.1) – Rashed97 has Ported CM10 over to optimus one.This CM10 rom is still in development stage but you can easily have the taste of jelly bean on your optimus one (P500) as most of the basic daily use functions work.We have created a jelly bean flashing tutorial for our readers.Check it Out.
