I own a LG Optimus V from Virgin Mobile currently rooted and running Android 2.3.7 CyanogenMod 7.2.0-RC0-IHO-KANG on Mirage's kernel (mirage@aurora))

While it performs fine and I love it, I have a few issues.
Ever since I put this ROM on in late December, I cannot connect to any WiFi network; usually stuck at "Obtaining IP Address" And I'd love to be able to use WiFi ASAP.

Also, I can not seem to install Busybox, getting the error that my phone is not rooted, most of the time, though it is. Due to this, I cannot run Font Changer, SD Maid, etc, etc, etc.

How do I fix any of these issues?

Also, is there a CM9 in development for Optimus V and not just Optimus One?

(Is a huge fan of ICS)

Thanks in advance!

P.S:I also can not wait to start developing apps and roms to use and share with the community, though my skill lies in 3DS Max and Photoshop.

Smile A little advice
You can get into THEMEING....

There is no CM9 port for Optimus V though there is a good ICS-THEMED rom.

Try rooting again with SuperOneClick v2.3.3

Umm, I rooted with Gingerbreak since the super one click method never seemed to work with me, could that be a problem?

sounds like its a rom issue, just root the phone again with the new rom installed, but the wifi problem is a rom issue, find out if other people are having the same issue with the rom as you are, if so, pm the dev about making a update to fix the issue

Agh, when I try to open gingerbreak it says "Cannot extract assets."
Is this maybe because I'm now on Android 2.3.7?
