Original thread posted on LGViet.com & SphinX.vn.

For those who are first time using LG LU-6200 or even first time using an android phone, well let me tell you, you guys won't be disappointed by this device. Now this ROM is stock (OEM) based so most of the functions and UI (User Interface) are designed on LG style which is so far quite simple and usable just like TouchWizUI from Samsung. All the Korean bloat-ware (Carrier based apps) has been removed and a lot of other features ported from LG LTE2. LG Optimus G Pro & LG G2. Even a few basic features are ported from some AOSP (Android Open Source Project i.e., Cyanogenmod) ROMs. It still have a few bugs but it won't disturb your daily experience and devs are working to resolve these issues.

Some Vietnamese devs have worked really hard in making it and so far they have done a great job and let me tell you that you won't find a better stock based ROM for this device. A few things are demonstrated in screenshots (will be uploaded soon).

So if you're really a newbie to it then go to this GUIDE to first Root your device and install custom Recovery. Follow the instructions carefully and by the end you'll know how to install custom ROMs and do some other basic stuff. (Please scroll down to the end of the GUIDE and use the OLD METHOD).

If you have any problem then post your question on this Question & Answer thread. Well most likely what you're going to ask has already been asked so search around a little bit before posting a question or sending a PM to anyone & don't even try to create a thread just for stating the problem or asking a question. It will not be answered.

It's basically changed a lot with some new functions and replaced some old stuff. Also it packs a new Kernel so 4wipe should be done!!!

I flashed this ROM the other day, and although it's definitely smoother than the stock OS, it is still a bit laggy and prone to hiccups just like the stock OS and I noticed in CPU-Z that the CPU usage is still hovering around 50% even on idle. Not sure if this is normal or not. Can anyone else check the CPU-Z app too?

Oh, and one other sad thing I noticed - Asphalt 8 is not compatible with our phone!
