By everything going on you mean a good theme and no issues at all is what you want?
Currently MMS is always an issue for SOME people with Gingerbread ROMS
Try this guide if MMS is an issue with whatever ROM you install:
[GUIDE] How to fix MMS with Gingerbread/CM7 ROMS

Choose a ROM:
CM7.2 (Android Gingerbread 2.3.5)

[ROM] CyanogenMod 7 for the LG Optimus M MS690

http://androidforums.com/optimus-m-all-things-root/403689-rom-wip-cm7-2-0-rc0-bobz.html Most up-to-date ROM (That hasn't been ported) Try MMS before flashing a fix. It is supposed to be built in, but may not work

[ROM][YACR] CM 7.1-Reppard

Ported ROMS:

http://androidforums.com/optimus-m-all-things-root/515307-rom-miui-miui-cm7-based-port.html Very nice looking ROM but there are issues

[ROM]Themed ICS 2.3.7 Gingerbread [PORTED] Only issue known is that default ringtone and notification ringtone must be changed because default is silent 0.o

I hope this helps you decide
You can always test each one and if something doesn't work just post in the thread of the ROM.

Right now i've been toying with a few ROMS and this is what i've noticed, Ok BOBs 7.2 hangs on the LG screen so i stopped trying after 7 minutes of flashing, im currently using reppards cyan mod 7.1 and my gmail contacts wont sync with the phone, also when i flashed this rom i also flashed a gapps version of 08282001, would love some extra help bro, maybe i did something wrong here. Also this android version currently says 2.3.5 not the 2.3.4 as you mentioned, i'll provide a screenshot so you can see what im currently running for greater understanding. ............. ok update!!! i restarted my phone to see if things would clear up and it did! my texts are sending and receiving, & my contacts fully synched, ok so things are looking up my portable hotspot works but when i connect my laptop to it it says metro pcs doesnt support it anymore, is there anyway to bypass this?

http://androidforums.com/optimus-m-all-things-root/403689-rom-wip-cm7-2-0-rc0-bobz-17.html#post3964949

One of them showed up in the apn list and i ended up checking the metropcs box so it highlighted green, then rebooted the phone and checked to make sure it was still activated and it was, i had someone send me a couple pictures and i was only able to receive one, it stopped working after, any fix for this? greatly appreciated.
