Hello again (after a long while)

I'm sorry for my absence but as i said my studies were kind of overwhelming for a while... Anyway, i return here with bad news.

I will not continue to work on Oxygen for the following reasons:
- I simply don't have the time to do it and it also does not help me at all with what i'm studying (i'm a med student )
- Oxygen 2.3.2 (GB) has reached a state where it is very stable for most of the users. I know there are still small bugs here and there but most of those are app related or simply features of stock AOSP GB that people don't like, but that really is the Google way. I am very proud of what i've done and glad that people enjoy it and use it daily.
- I (personal opinion) believe that GB is the most we can squeeze out of this phone without sacrificing stability or performance. I think ICS is just not going to happen on this phone like GB is. There are a few ICS roms out there for our phone but none of them are nearly as stable or as fast as GB (not because of the developers of those roms of course, but because of lack of proprietary software that is in use in GB)
- I don't have a powerful enough computer to make fast builds. There is nothing more frustrating than compiling 5-6 hours of code and putting it on the device just to see that it's not working. Horrible...

Thank you all for a great ride. It has been an honour to bring this rom to P500. I will still be here on the forum to answer any questions you may have and to enjoy the work that devs do.

Thank You popdog ! This is the most stable rom for lg p500.There are few roms which give more performance(in games especially) but they are not as stable as oxygen.So far i reached about one month with the last version.It's nice because there's one user in theme&apps area which modifies you rom look without any stability cost.So far he created ICS and Optimus 2X themes.I tested ICS and works great.Maybe you could add a link to first post because many users don't know about them...at least i didn't until couple of days ago.Now i can't say that stock look is boring after a while because i can change This depends from users to users.
In the end I would like to thank you again for your work...if you ever get bored,start developing again =))

Yes please, do share that link


I think that this rom is the best rom for our phone and i've tried almost every rom there is, and i always come back to this one its light, fast, smooth, without any bloatware and bugs and the battery is absolutely amazing. But the only thing that i'm missing here is a support for different theme, like ics theme or whatever. That's the only missing peace in this rom But none the less this rom is amazing Great work popdog123!!!

oxygen does not contain theme chooser, so you have to flash zips for applying themes

go to themes & apps section and you will find 2 oxygen themes by vikasb32 (optimus2x and ics)

next time use discussion thread for this

sorry for OT

^ You cannot apply themes to oxygen directly like in CM7.
Either get a custom launcher and apply its themes or mess around in UOT Kitchen.

& @Popdog
Gr8 work on GB, really dont see any future updates to it, but was expecting a lot for ICS Oxygen.
Do think about giving it a shot when you have some spare time and a PC with better specs..
Thanks for Oxygen..

use the stock kernel

if you want to change kernels (for gaming), use caf or roq kernel

but remember to create a backup before flashing
