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.

2.AOKP miestone rev 2

Its Android Open Kang Project for our mini! And that too fully working.It is fast,with beautiful wallpapers and the native AOKP Rom control option.

What is NOT working:

1) Native Camera not working but nightvision does.
2) H/W video decoding not working (need OMX libs)

# Don’t enable honeycomb lock screen. You will not be able to unlock the phone.
# Don’t add power saver toggle on power menu, it will cause you device to restart when long pressing power button!
# You don’t have to wipe data if you flash over my AOKP. Only wipe if you upgrade from CM9 / anything older than 4.0.4

3.Mini s3 v2

S3 on our mini.That’s right.This ROM runs on CM9 base with Touchwizz 5 prime as the launcher and truly s3 like appearance.It’s a delight to use it.As fast as CM9 with all the features of CM9 as well.DOwnload it from here.And apply the patches listed for CM9 here also in order to get the best performance.But if you are a die hard gamer and a heavy multitasking user i would recommend you to not to use this.

Changelog : MiniS3 v2

  • Updated to the newest ICS or CM9 sources.
  • Updated SSugest
  • Updated Flipboard

What Works
