CyanogenMod 10(Jellybean) for LG GT540 by miroslav_mm


Still on Froyo, Gingerbread or ICS? Its time for some beans in our device. Our GT540 Android Devlopment is reaching great heights every day. Its a great achievement by xda members as they have released one of the first JB ports for our GT540 and this is one of them. Thats Right! when we have such wonderful developers in the Android development community, old devices such as the Optimus GT540 will never fade away into oblivion. Therefore,  XDA Senior Member miroslav_mm has released a CyanogenMod 10 ROM upgrade for it which means that it is now possible to run Android Jelly Bean 4.1 on it. The ROM is yet under initial stage which means that some of the features are not working fine on it. So it is not a recommended upgrade but yet if you really want to taste jellybean, then you can surely go for it..So, here’s the changelog with all the instructions.
