    I believe mobster ROM is the latest rom, 5/28/12. Its pretty fast and battery life is better. All the ROMs are 2.3 gingerbread stock based, no cm7, no ICS/jb themes I believe. Just follow the instructions.

    Installation Instructions:

    1 Backup stock ROM in cwm
    2 Wipe cache
    3 wipe dalvik cache
    4 Install ROM
    5 install gingerkernel
    6 reboot

    The downloaded links are in the thread. http://androidforums.com/optimus-sl...rom-vm701-mobster-rom-v1-4-update-5-28-a.html

    There is a ICS Theme you can download and flash after flashing Mobster Rom or Gelato Rom. Just google "ICS Theme Optimus Slider" and the website it should be on is androidcentral.com

    I flashed the Gingerkernel and the AreaSlider Rom.

    I then found an adobe_flash_player_11, which I downloaded to my computer, unzipped, and moved the file to my Optimus Slider. I'm now able to play almost any videos-- which was one of my biggest pet peeves with the lower version Android OS that's on Slider.

    But I'm wanting to try a more advanced ROM. Does anyone know if I could flash GingerSteem Extreme ROM? I know it's for the Esteem, but still I'm wanting to try it.

    I had problems with the Mobster ROM. It stuck on a blank screen, after the LG icon upon startup. Finally I was able to get into recovery with the buttons. (I could only do this after removing battery), and then was able to restore to AreaSlider.

    Anyone know if flashing with the LG Esteem rom--GingerSteem Extreme ROM--might be ok? Thanks!
