        Third party camera not working as well, the problem is in the system(ROM) i guess everything there on program system, “not specific”

  • Andreas

    Nice work. Thanks.
    Works much better than the CM7.2 I had on it before.
    Looking forward to a further update once CM10 is stable.

    Hi dude, i’m glad that someone still has interest in developing new android releases for lg optimus net, but i have a small request from you, if you please when you are porting the rom from lg optimus one don’t do the same mistake like the other developers did and forgot to change the phone specs for lg optimus net and many applications like mozilla firefox were blocked in android market for our phone because the market recognised the phone as being lg optimus one instead of lg optimus net…

  • Zulfir Sadat M

    Downloaded and installed. Awesome experience. Everything works fine except camera. Please fix the camera. I liked this rom very much. The best custom rom I ever had on my phone.

  • phailbot

    Very nice rom, one of the top three for this phone! When the camera is fixed will easily be #1.

  • deepee

    Thanks for the ROM and setup instructions

    gapps-jb-light-pa-20121018-signed.zip doesn’t exist at the link you posted.

    I installed gapps-jb-20121011-signed.zip instead.

    Is this correct?

    Everything seems to work but the settings menu text is tiny and there is no notification bar..

    • arafat21

      The Gapps is inverted one to match the theme, probably deleted by developer.

    After more testing unfortunately the Bluetooth function doesn’t work properly for connection of a headset. This has been reported for other Cyanogen ROM’s for this phone so hopefully a fix will be forthcoming. Unfortunately this has killed it for me as I need the headset for handsfree in-car calls. The restore of the stock Indian LG P-690 ROM went smoothly (even though I’m in Australia as the Telstra Australian ROM is packed full of bloatware). Thanks anyway and looking forward to more fixes soon!

    After installing this rom i noticed some serious problems like the one with the keyboard that doesn’t appear at all when i want to write something and the one with the home button that doesn’t work at all, plus the one when i want change the position of the status bar to the upper side of the screen the home screen with widgets and also the menu with applications of the launcher wont scale in the right way leading in covering of some of the applications by the status bar !

    • arafat21

      When we tried to find new updated file for the ROM, we won’t get anything new. Also, many other found it working except camera and offline charging. We hope the developer start development soon which will solve all known issues. You can visit the development page here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2083349

        after installation i am getting one screen it is showing unfortunately setupwizard stopped it is repeating….

  • Meet Thakar

    Well, I must say, it’s a great ROM. I’m also a (future’s) ROM developer.
    Camera doesn’t work maybe because it’s a kernel/software/ROM problem.

    I noticed an awkward problem, once network mode is switched to 2G, it can never be switch to WCDMA/3G. :(
    That’s why I uninstalled this ROM.

    Please fix camera and add overcloking 1GHz+

    • arafat21

      Overclocking can be possible by flashing a proper kernel. We hope developer fix camera issue in next release.
