Version 8 [31/8/2011]
A nova (plural novae) is a cataclysmic nuclear explosion caused by the accretion of hydrogen on to the surface of a white dwarf star, which ignites and starts nuclear fusion in a runaway manner. Novae are not to be confused with supernovae or luminous red novae.


Nova (click it for trivia!) is a ROM for Optimus Black which aims to replace the stock ROM and give you what stock doesn't: minimalism and speed. Any LG and OEM trace has been reduced to a minimum and it has been significantly improved and optimized while keeping the most bugfree as possible. I hope you enjoy using it as much as I have coming up with it.


Android 2.2.2 based on V10C
Quasar kernel v2.6.32.x
Partitions upgraded to EXT4 without journalism
OC + UV by default


A wipe is required when first flashing Nova, however, unless otherwise stated, no wipe is needed to upgrade between versions.
  1. Download to your sdcard storage on your OB
  2. [Optional] Check's Md5 to check if your download copy is corrupted
  3. Boot into CWM Recovery through whatever method you choose (anreboot, terminal, ...)
  4. [First flash only] Use the volume keys and power button to select Wipe Data
  5. Select Install Zip from SD Card
  6. Find the file you downloaded earlier
  7. Scroll through all the No's and hit Yes, install
  8. Wait for the installation to finish
  9. Select Reboot
  10. After the long initial reboot, reboot a second time and you're all set


I'm not responsible for any damage what-so-ever done to your phone, as with any ROM, you accept this risk.

First time flashing Nova? Download this: (it will wipe data) | md5: 655b0af2e6f15224d4840cee67519902
Already have Nova? Download this: --- (it will not wipe data)

Quick guidelines:

- If UI is very slow after 2 minutes, reflash. If home button doesn't work, reflash.
- Remember to reboot after the first long boot (applies some tweaks).
- Check "known issues" and "FAQ" before posting.

For more information on the ROM's features, changelog and where to place your suggestions and bug reports, keep reading post #2 and #3.
