You can put an unofficial port of Cyanogenmod 11 on there. It works pretty good with the exception of the battery dying 4 times a day. But I think it's time to replace the battery in the phone since it's 3.5 years old. It works as a decent backup phone though when I need something small.

Link to CM11:
I purchased this phone over three years ago (I can't remember when). It has been pretty reliable aside from the malfunctioning when the memory is full. I've had to do several hard resets (I only lost my information during one reset, in the others I only needed to re-install my apps). I really like this phone and the main reason why I'm getting rid of it is because I've just grown tired of it. I've dropped it SEVERAL times (up to 2-3x per week) and my screen is still perfectly in tact. It's a really good phone.

I managed to find CM11 for the pantech burst but you need to do the ff:
1. upgrade to ICS using official method from pantech site (requires windows 7 to work)
2. install CWM.
3. using CWM install CM11 and Google micro Gapps
4. Root was working for me then but the other day i tried to clean install cannot root my phone :(.
Overall the unit is fine again and fast :).

Excellent phone for the price tag, except for the Battery, 1650 mAh, which drains fast.
I've installed CM11 on this phone and it's amazingly fast compared to the stock GB and ICS stock ROM's.
Yes. My problem is that my phone makes very hot when charging and sometimes freeze Now I wanted to have a screenshot it does not support even my friends use to make fun of my phone which does not have radio, always getting hot, battery not strong, and even its a old version which is no more in the system. PantechP9070 accessories cannot be found in my country. I just want to know if the company has stop manufacturing.. #PleaseDoSomething
have used the phone for more than 2 yrs. awesome experience. ultravalue for money. but now since the memory is full, it has started slowing down a bit. very sad to know that pantech has stopped manufacturing phones now.
My pantech 9070 Had frozen, I removed the battery since it can not revive. What should I do?

My phone will shut off and reboot itself then I can't make any calls or send/receive text. I will have to remove the battery and replace it then I can use my phone for another day or 2 then I have to repeat. Has anyone had these problems with their Pantech Burst?
Just for your information, devs around the world had put their hard work for the little beast and developed a kitkat ROM (4.4.4) for it.
I am currently using this, do not see major bugs apart from wifi tethering and bluetooth headset not working.
Go and google "Jake Pantech Burst ROM"
You will surely land upon the developers website from where you can install it.
You need to have a rooted device along with latest CWM installed. I have Phillz recovery.
