For do it, starts from step 1 of this tutorial.

    ===Some users have told me they do not find the market in the app drawner. if you have the same problem, then go to this address in Root Explorer /system/app/ and looking for an app that says "vending ", just open it and install it, after reboot phone and the market will be on app drawner


    This tutorial is for all LG GT540.

    1- During installation, all your data will erase (contacts, configurations, data and applications installed), but if you dont want to lose the information, you should make a backup using an app for backup from market.

    2- To install Android 2.3.7, you need to first have a fastboot rom installed on the phone. If your phone already has a rom with fastboot skip to step 11.

    3- Install msxml.

    Hold the camera button down and start the phone, then go through your steps again until it says "waiting for device" and connect it. If it doesn't recognise the phone there are some drivers you may neeed to reinstall on your computer. Theyre steps in the guide though.

    (I'm using 2.1, it may be a bit different)
    Ok, here's how to set up 3G internet + MMS.
    1. Go to Settings --> Wireless & Networks --> Mobile Network Settings --> Access Point Names.
    2. You should see a blank list. Press "New APN".
    3. Fill in the following:
    Code (Text):
    1. Name: Optus Yes Internet
    2. APN: yesinternet
    3. Proxy:
    4. Port:
    5. Username:
    6. Password:
    7. Server:
    8. MMSC:
    9. MMS Proxy:
    10. MMS Port:
    11. MMS Protocol (Android 2.1+): WAP 2.0
    12. MCC: 505
    13. MNC: 02
    14. Auth Type: PAP
    15. APN Type: internet or default
    Press "Save". You should go back to the "Mobile Network Settings" page.
    5. Turn on 3G (mobile network) and test it out. Hopefully, it worked. If not, then recheck and make sure you filled in everything correctly.
    6. If it worked, you'll probably want to set up MMS too. Go back to the "Access Point Names" page, and press "New APN".
    7. Fill in the following:
    Code (Text):
    1. Name: Optus MMS
    2. APN: mms
    3. Proxy:
    4. Port:
    5. Username:
    6. Password:
    7. Server:
    8. MMSC: http://mmsc.optus.com.au:8002/
    9. MMS Proxy:
    10. MMS Port: 8070
    11. MMS Protocol (Android 2.1+): WAP 2.0
    12. MCC: 505
    13. MNC: 02
    14. Auth Type: PAP
    15. APN Type: mms
    Press "Save". You should go back to the "Mobile Network Settings" page.
    8. Test it by:
    A. Sending a friend a MMS.
    B. Getting a friend to send you a MMS.
    I recommend that you do both, to make sure it works both ways.
    Hopefully, it worked. If not, then recheck and make sure you filled in everything correctly.

    10. PROFIT!

    This only happens for v2.0 M5, bearing in mind that v2.0 is still in beta and has bugs. It was only boot.img that didn't flash anyway, so all you had to do was flash it manually

    A question: If it doesn't work for me, how do I get back to android 2.1?

    Well, this is incredible !! Worked for me !! However it didn't go without some issues. I also encountered "waiting for device", so I didn't know what. I did install some drivers a day earlier, but they didn't seem to work properly. However in the KDZ update map you can find the installer for the right drivers. You didn't mention it explicitly, but I found out myself (or am I wrong ?). I took the risc of bricking my phone because I never modded my phone before, so this was all new to me. What I did during a day or 2 is reading out everything very good and letting it penetrate my mind. Learned a lot about rooting, fastbooting and what it all meant. So I started up the process. Had to redo it 2 times (only because of my impatience) and suddenly !!!!! it worked.haha !!! I now have the gingerbread on my gt and loving it. Seeking out the language whas a bit difficult because some russian letters changed a bit so I couldn't be sure. Tried some and there it was ! Even in dutch ! Unbelievable. I am a woman and 47 years old and I could do it, so with a bit of patience, studying the tutorial and reading on the web, you should get there. Leaves me to express my admiration to the people who developped this rom and those who take the effort to explain it propperly to semi-noobs and noobs or whatever.
    Do you know i had most fun while studying it and installing it ?
    I became smarter again ;-)
    Thx guys !!!

    I've modded my LG with this rom and now I cannot set a ringtone. I assign one but when the phone rings he chooses a song out of my media map, and I cannot change it. Tried almost everything. Can anyone help me with this ?
