    This is a beta release of CM9 for the Optimus Elite so please don't expect this to be 100% stable. You may get random reboots and lockups or you may not. Before flashing this rom I recommend you make a NAND backup just in case.

    About (Taken from Cyanogenmod website)


    CyanogenMod (pronounced sigh-AN-oh-jen-mod), is a customized, aftermarket firmware distribution for several Android devices (See above for supported devices & how to install CyanogenMod on said devices). Based on the Android Open Source Project, CyanogenMod is designed to increase performance and reliability over Android-based ROMs released by vendors and carriers such as Google, T-Mobile, HTC, etc. CyanogenMod also offers a variety of features & enhancements that are not currently found in these versions of Android.


    What works:


    • Audio/speaker phone
    • Headset/headphones
    • Calls and texts
    • Touchscreen
    • Lights/brightness
    • Offline charging
    • External SD
    • Bluetooth
    • Wifi
    • Proximity sensor
    • Overclocking
    • Tethering using an app called "Wifi Tether for Root Users" from the play store with the settings used in F.A.Q below.
    • Mass storage
    • Camera (Finally!)


    What's partially working:


    • Data (stuck on 1x but get 3g speeds. Currently setup to always show 3G)
    • NFC ( NFC tags and google wallet are non functional.)

    What's not working:



    • You tell me.


    Issues:

    • you may have random reboots or lock ups or you may not.
    • Google Wallet doesn't work and opening it causes nfc to not work until you do a reboot. Will fix this soon.


    Installation instructions:

    To install this rom you must first have a custom recovery installed onto your phone.
    You can learn how to do this here " http://androidforums.com/elite-all-things-root/620742-faq-guide-clockworkmod-optimus-elite.html"



    • 1. Download the appropriate rom for your phone and then Gapps. (Gapps is needed if you need to use google services such as Google Play.)
    • 2. You need to copy the downloaded rom and Gapps to your internal memory or your external memory.
    • 3. Boot into recovery.
    • 4. If you are coming from a Gingerbread rom you need to do a full wipe. (cache, davlik cache, data, and system.) If you are coming from an other ICS rom e.g CM9 then you just need to wipe cache and davlik cache.
    • 5. Select install zip from where ever you put the files onto. So if you put it on the external sd card you would pick "Install from SD Card".
    • 6. Install in the following order. "Rom and then Gapps"
    • 7. Reboot.
    Please note that the first install will take some time ( About 3 to 5 minutes.)

    F.A.Q
    Q. Do I have to format my data?
    A. If you are coming from a rom other than CM9 then yes you do but if you are just updating to a new CM9 build then no.


    Q. How do I use my external SD card to install apps on?
    A. Go to Settings>Storage>Menu button>Storage configuration>and check the box. After that you will need to reboot the phone.

    Q. What settings do I use to get tethering to work?
    A.
    Device-Profile: Generic ICS/JB (wlan0)
    Change Setup-Method: WEXT (ad-hoc)
    MSS clamping checked
    Routing fix checked



    Want to report a issue you are having with the rom? Then use getlogs.
    [APP] GetLogs - Get dmesg, logcat, radio, etc with one click! - xda-developers

    Will update this post later

    Thanks for all the hard work! It's paying off!

    I just flashed the rom. Everything looks like it works fine so far, just like you said. I get 3g speeds even though it says 1x. However, sometimes the 3g icon will pop up, but then switch back to the 1x icon. hmm weird.

    One thing I was excited about is the fact that watching Youtube in hd didn't lag. The optimus v did this all the time on cm9 and it was annoying.

    Good job! It's fantastic and every appreciates your work! :)

    Note for people flashing: reboot after starting up the first time in case your home button doesn't work

    Almost time to get back to work. Thank you everyone involved.

    Couple quick questions

    1 data does work but it's stuck on 1x right?
    2. By mass storage that when you plug in into a pc right? But the sd can still be read by the phone?
    3 only major things not working I'd nfc and camera?

    Going to download in about 40 min just finished using titanium
