Please don't post anything here! I still need to 'move' this to the general part, but I haven't got much time at the moment, so I'll do it later!!!

Because Mur4ik stopped working on Swiftdroid, mikegapinski and pebe94 decided to 'continue' the project, and make it an official Cyanogenmod ROM (See the Swiftdroid thread.)

What works:
Almost everything...

What doesn't work:
Native internet tethering via USB (fixed with PDANet)
Hardware accelerated xvid/divx (fixed with Rockplayer)
Zooming in the camera app

(Outdated) video from Swiftdroid v1.2

I, and none of someone here have responsebility for bricking your phone. Installing a custom ROM is always at your own risk.

Please do not post things like 'When will there be an update'. Mike and Pebe will release when they finished their version!

Changelog:
2.1 (Expected):
-Original v20E kernel with BFS,SiO, and CPU stuff like smartass
-New sources: Compilation from their tweaked source for better RAM usage
-AHB overclocking for system faster on 600 Mhz (thanks to Joe)
-FM app not needing bluetooth anymore
-USB tethering removed from settings
-Improved network selection showing network type (gsm or wcdma)
-Official released at Cyanogenmod

(2.0 ASIS and before see the Swiftdroid thread)

Latest version:

How To Upgrade LG GT540 while already running Swiftdroid Without Loosing Data/Settings/Apps
Using Recovery Method: You need to extract the zip. Then install the extracted zip file from the SD card in recovery mode. (Full credits go to fishears for this method)
Using Fastboot Method: Use the "fastboot flash system system.img" command (without the "). You can do a backup afterwards in recovery mode.
You can extract it with root explorer on your phone. However, if you encounter system errors then, try using suggested backup apps mentioned below.

How To Backup Your LG GT540 running Swiftdroid
For those who prefer to do a clean wipe of their systems first before upgrading (in case of errors) fdespotovski & mircea89fzr have suggested using Titanium & MyBackup (rooted) apps. After upgrade, reinstall your chosen app & run restore to restore all previously backed up data/apps/settings

Not yet . And Mike and Pebe probably would release it, even if it wouldn't be supported by Cyanogen
