    To be perfectly honest, thats exactly what I planned to do lol. I was looking for downloads I can dissect, and have been researching the device a bit today since I didnt have classes.

    Yes that's our kernel you just need the lg board configs from another kernel like playfulgods or Bobzhome or reppard.

    @KJohn if you brick there's an unbrick guide. So don't be afraid of flashing stuff lol. The only stuff that's scary to flash is modified stock firmware...

    Well i flashed while i was out on the road and i did run into that black screen he mentioned...got back home flashed R.O.C.K anyrom kernel and booted up.

    To me it looks like is just touch screen that needs to be worked on, don't know about anything else. It's like triple work just to navigate lol.

    Its dodgy on that rom, you are able to barely navigate..BobZhomes CM9 (me and androidhogs have the test build) has data working as well as SD card storage. Can't test anything else because touch screen doesn't work at all.

    One has enough working to be working as daily (except touch screen won't work at all) this is the CM9 build by BobZhome using a gingerbreadish kernel. It still has froyo mixed in a little. It has 3G working and calls working, but I can't answer because touchscreen won't work.

    The other one has touch screen barely working. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, adb, mass storage, SD card reading all doesn't work. Apps don't work at all either. That's AOSP by tripdoc using a froyo kernel.
