these roms, made by some developers are very sexy and neat and smooth. but not 100% perfect. they have defects, as ics and jb are not supported officially and as p500 wont have complete requirements to be in such latest roms. GB roms are only trustworthy, like cyanogenmod7 and such "gb" made by the xda devs.
kunle, 27 Nov 2012what does mean to 'root' a phone and how? Rooting the phone annulls your warranty as its a sort of illegal activity,and should be avoided it can also damage your phone permanently.
@ndres, 21 Nov 20121) root your phone
2) install Link2SD
3) Link Apps 2 SDhow to root my optimus p500 pls tell me...
This phone is a lemon. Has hardly any internal memory and as most apps seem to have the requirement to run on internal memory - there is no point downloading apps. Or sending txt either. I have deleted pretty much all of the apps I downloaded (all 5 of them), I have cleared all the caches, I have deleted most of my stored txt and this lemon still tells me I am low on storage.
I contacted LG Support and he told me to do all of the things I have already done, then said there is not anything else that can be done.
Don't buy this phone.

The CPU in P500 is not an ARM11 (boy do we wish!). It is an ARM6 and performs like one.
Still not a bad little phone for a first time smartphone user. I would still recommend it for someone young, or someone who has never had a smartphone before.
Man are these things durable!
