I'm trying to make a more organized place to access ROMs, gApps, and other stuff for everyone, even guides for noobs. Here's info on all the custom ROMs out there for the LG L7 700-705, with a database of links. Please tell me if there are any broken or incorrect links, or incorrect credits, and I will correct them. If you have any other ROMs I may have missed, send me a link! Thanks!
