    No one has made one yet. A rom can be made in a day once the cwm works. The cwm is the hard part.

    mtmichaelson has reported to already have a rom ready for testing once we fix CWM compability. He calls it Gingersteem. Which is pretty much a stock os overclocked and tweaked for rapidness and awesomeness.

    PlayfulGod has also reported a overclocked kernel for our beloved esteem. We just need to make sure we have CWM working.

    Patience is a virtue.

    The matte ones eliminate screen glare and the privacy ones eliminate shoulder surfers.

    The Gorilla Glass is almost impossible to scratch with keys or coins.

    If you guys want to talk about Gorilla Glass, can you guys please open up your own thread. Lets keep this only for Dev talk about CWM and LG Esteem. Thank you.

    Video Updated showing CWM rebooting. Just a demonstration that it is booting, running on LG Esteem but unfortunately still reboots. =(

    Still testing guys. So wait patiently.

    Update: been using for awhile now. Phone at 1.7ghz is stable. I changed it to 1.4ghz to save battery but still super fast. Even bootup time is much quicker with this kernel.
