◢KNOW WHAT YOUR FLAHING? ROM PREVIEW HERE by androidappsteam, v2.2 preview
PRUDENCE to all ROM porters and modders, Any ports from other device is granted and YOU as the porter do not need to ask any permissions on ME as the OP of this ROM i.e (Ginger Snap for lg p500), BUT you MUST notify me as the ONLY condition, I dont like to see a ROM's originally from our section and called it YOURS on other device section. Proper CREDITS should also be given..
Another PRUDENCE, RE-POSTING of the same ROM with just some small changes etc.. on the same section is NOT PERMITTED, we dont need two same thing, that just doesnt make sense, but if the case is for improvements.. lets just help each other on this.
If somehow you hate me for this, you may read xda forum rules under rule #12 here.
Dont take me wrong for this, I also have hard time modifying and work on this, thats all I'am asking.
Ginger Snap is the successor of Gamer's Talho Rom (GTR) and Moto RAZR-UI, this ROM is based on CM7.2 latest nightlies build, basically it's an optimized Ginger Bread ROM with some customization and modifications, light weighted bareboned ROM, meant to be slick, fast and slimmed a typical user and gamers would like to have. Now Ginger Snap offers the look and feel of Stock LG ROM. Everyone love's the stock ROM but we had some problems because its NOT customizable and not as FAST as CM in terms of performance and smoothness, that is why the IDEA of getting the stock ROM looks and feel with CM features and performance will be the best combination will ever had for our devices.
Your warranty is now void. Please READ.
I as the OP of this ROM is not responsible in any of the following terms and conditions, like for bricked devices, dead SD cards,thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm application failed.
Please do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM i.e (Ginger Snap) before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the finger on me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

New From XDA and still cant post on this section? for suggestions bugs report etc..
