    I've got an LG Marquee left over from when I was with Boost that I would like to use like a PDA or tablet. Simply put, I could care less about the phone features and would like to use it as a computing and web device.

    Ultimately, I want to ditch all the Boost / Sprint proprietary garbage and run it with minimal overhead. Does anyone know of an OS that is compatible to load on this model phone that utilizes the phone like a wifi tablet?

    I did some reading and didn't find anything that was similar to my query. Any suggestions on alternate threads or information sources is much appreciated.

    There were cyanogen builds and miui builds for the marquee. Some issues with mms that can be fixed (though I don't think those apply to you) and the camera is non functional. Aside from that the CM builds posted in the root section are more than likely what you are looking for

    There's a nice version of AOKP in there too. Gotta look for it though.
