CM7 on Optimus 3D

Owners of LG's Optimus 3D (and the AT&T variant, the Thrill 4G) wanting to try some new, exotic software will welcome today's release of an early version of popular custom firmware CyanogenMod by developer Ricardo Cerquiera.

The "self-KANG" build is based on CyanogenMod 7.1 and Android 2.3.5, giving Optimus 3D owners their first taste of Gingerbread. A word of warning though -- it's still a very early version, so bugs are to be expected, along with some missing functionality. Most notably, HDMI mirroring isn't working in this build, and there's a bug with wireless tethering which means you'll need to reboot the phone to turn it off. Also, 3D stills cannot be taken or viewed (although existing 3D videos work just fine), and we found the camera to be particularly prone to crashing.

Like we said, it's an early pre-beta build. We were impressed with the sheer speed that resulted from the combination of CM7 and the Optimus 3D's beastly OMAP4 CPU, though. And despite the aforementioned camera wonkiness, we haven't experienced any real stability issues in our first day of using this ROM.

Fearless testers can find download and installation instructions at the source link. Obviously, you'll need to a rooted Optimus 3D and a fair bit of technical know-how before you begin.

I'm just trying it out to see how it will be once they get it all up and going. its a huge improvement over the stock rom. I will be going back to stock just wanted to check it out

Is there an update on the LG Revolution ?
The OG-Droid has Offical gingerbread already. This so sad that the carriers and OEMs can't roll this out sooner.
