I was reading LG Optimus 3D forum before.

I see only seen negative things about stock gingerbread.

so you think it sucks too? bad battery life and buggy?

can someone tell me if the stock gingerbread upgrade is worth it, or is it buggy still.

also can someone tell me a better way to backup texts and phone log. since someone in my other topic said titanium backup is not as good for that.
There is an app in market called SMS backup and restore....free and awesome. Using it all the time.

Hit thanks button yo

Although "Thriller" is no longer under development, it has one very major thing going for it - the "HSDPA Category" is changed from 8 to 10. Apparently either AT&T or LG or both have decided that setting the "4G" to the fastest setting was too much for users to handle.

One I updated to Thriller ROM, my speeds over HSDPA more than tripled. Before, i was hard pressed to reach 2 Mbps download, now I average 6-7 Mbps.

I don't know if any of the other ROMs have also made this change.

Do you know what MIUI is? I don't mean the ROM, I mean what the ROM is built for.

Yes. I know what MIUI is. I've used it on my Samsung Galaxy 3 and Samsung Galaxy S II. I did not like it.

What's it built for? Be more specific. It depends on the OS version.
What is it? It's an overlay like Sense UI.

So yes, I'm pretty familiar with MIUI.
No. It's not easy to port to an LG device that has had its framework raped and destroyed.

Devices:
LG Nexus 4 - Stock + Xposed
Samsung Captivate - CM 11
Samsung Galaxy S II - AOKP
