LG g pad updated with cyanogenmod
I have cm11 m3 running on my v500 g pad (KitKat 4.4.2). I don't have to wait for LG to update, they will always be way behind on updates (Sammy aswell). Still waiting for my Note 2 update (would root, if I wasn't going to sell soon).
I notice my brightness went way up after updating to cm11. Now plenty bright, usually use at about 60-75 percent, before 85 to 100 percent indoors.
I use a rubber type slip on case, so not slippery any more.
I do have a storage problem when setting app storage to ext sd. It stops back ups, saying insufficient space available, when I have plenty. This is not a deal killer for me.
sd card works great as extra storage and movies play fine from it.
Battery life is not great (even before I rooted and installed cm11), but very manageable.
All in all, this is a great tablet. I would not spend more than $250 ish for it though (at this time, since it is no longer leading edge).
I like the cm11 m3 custom rom. CM11 M3 has Double Tap (wake up screen) and a screen color adjustment, built in. I adjust screen to a slight blue bias. This makes whites better for me.
I like the fact that the v500 is supported by cyanogenmod (cm11), once installed, updates are easy (built in updater). I will stay up to date in the future.
