    main reason is CM7 is 2.3.5 GB and we are using libs, drivers, and a kernel from 2.2.x. If LG ever puts a GB update out everything with CM7 will prolly get better too ;)

    Have been using this ROM for about 3 days and I'm really liking it so far. I was only able to test MMS by sending myself a photo and it came thru. The only thing sort of not working exactly right is my status bar tweaking, where even if I add more buttons they won't show or allow for status bar scroll. But if I reboot it'll show added button but no scrolling. No big deal for me, may be something in settings?? Yesterday thought my data3G was not working but worked as soon as I rebooted. Overall this ROM is working very very nice and smooth. I decided to try OC @ 901 and so far no reboots - Quandrant #s showed @ 14+. Also, I haven't had any reboots, (maybe changing my Rocovery image to GNM might have helped w that) - so that feels really really nice. Thank you PlayfulGod, great work (donated)

    Edited to add: battery life has also been good

    Thank you!! I will see if mine acts the same way with the status n if so try to find a fix for it. And umm no a diff recovery wont have any affect on the main OS ;)

    ^LoL^ - Yes, please let us know if it's something in settings or so because (at least for me), I discover new things every time I go into settings etc. So it may be something we might of missed - thanks again :)

    So to flash the newest, should we flash the rom, then flash the kernel update (plague with camera fix) then flash the gapps, then reboot and set up the gapps and other stuff? Or should I reboot between each flash? I plan on giving it a try and I know I have to wipe everything to do it.

    yup that will work. Soon as kernel.org is back up n running I will run another build with the kernel included. ;)

    Oh, two more quickies; DT a2sd is included, right? Also, do we need to flash the mms no roaming fix?

    Alright. I flashed it and got it all up and running, for the most part. I still have some tweeking to do as far as how I want it to act and look. Smooth, very smooth. I like it. The screen lag is very minimal, almost to no effect.

    One minor thing, and it was mentioned the other day, is that it says cricket in a lot of places. It has the MW690 instead of the MS690 (or what ever the moniker is supposed to be). I'm not going to bother going in and fix the stuff like was done by the poster who mentioned it the other day. It doesn't seem to affect me and using the market; I was able to go in and down load all that I needed to. I assume that you plan to fix the Cricket nomenclature stuff when you are able to get back in and run another build?

    Anyway, thanks for a great ROM and I appreciate all your time and effort.

    Yes, the repo/src is set up to build for 4 diff optimus's. In my own hast in not being able to compile (need to resync with CM and cant atm) I packaged up my LW690 (Cricket) build and forgot about those settings and stuff. As you fond out yourself they dont affect much as they are the same phone hardware wise. But my next build will be MS690 specific. I just wanted to get a smooth build out to you all ;)

    I live in the Daytona Beach area and MetroPCS has recently turned on 3G service here, but it seems like when it switches from 1x to 3G the phone can't use data. I was wondering if it was something with Metro's service, which I wouldn't doubt, or something in the ROM since 1x was the only option up until now.

    CMW is great man, I just saw that you can indeed calibrate through there, in Advanced, Wipe Battery Stats

    Hey PG, so I installed the MMS fix you provided and it fixed MMS, but now it shows Roaming Indicator Off. By any chance is there any way to change it so that it doesn't display the Roaming Off banner?

    Loved the sense rom but it is now number 2 behind this for THE BEST ROM EVER. I even noticed a tethering option right there in the settings (dont know if its there on other roms just noticed it)

    It must be where I am, I'm right on the edge of 3G coverage, I just don't think I'm getting enough signal. Thanks though, glad to know it's working with CM7.

    It can also be done in GNM's recovery. I saw it there the other day.

    This ROM still going great for me:D - also liking the c~oo~l 3Dicon wallpaper - love the way it changed the phone dialing pad and colors overall. Couple questions:

    1) In case wanted to change where it says Network (within phone, status): is there way we could go in and manually change or input to say Metro? and

    2) My current mod version is: CyanogenMod-7.2-LG...09082011, is it necessary to update to 09092011?

    Thanks again :) Playfulgod.
