Cyanogenmod 7.2.0-RC0 Nightlies for LG Optimus Me P350

Check out more than 60 custom ROMs for LG Optimus Me P350 on Hack My Android Forums.

Cyanogenmod 7.2 was a great ROM for LG Optimus Me P350 with an improved battery life and great performance but that was not an original Cyanogenmod ROM. But now, we have an original Cyanogenmod ROM which is the Cyanogenmod 7.2.0-RC0 Nightlies ROM for LG Optimus Me P350, thanks to Cips Ghokle who developed this almost fully functional ROM. Almost, because it has some minor bugs which would not hinder your daily activities on phone. In this tutorial we will tell you how to install this ROM and also we have a video below to help you do it in a better way. Also have a look at the video to see how the ROM works.

What’s Working?

Almost everything works. I personally use this on my phone and don’t have any reason to revert back to the previous ROM. It has good battery life and smoother performance.

What does not work?

  • OFFLINE CHARGING
  • BT CALL
  • fm radio-use sprint fm

Screen Captures

    

   

Prerequisites

  • Before you install any ROM on your phone, it is always advisable to take a back up of your phone’s data. Backing up your contacts is easy and you can back up all your contacts to your phone’s SD Card.
  • To back up your applications, I recommend you to use ASTRO File Manager which also allows cloud storage.
  • Make sure you have enough battery on your device to support the installation. If the device powers off due to lack of battery power, it may brick the device.
  • Custom Recovery Installed

Steps to Install Cyanogenmod Nightlies ROM

  1. Download Cyanogenmod Nightlies zip file and gapps zip file from here.
  2. Place both the files in the root of your sd card. By root of your sd card, I mean the SD card itself and not within any folder. This makes it easy for you to find the zip files while in recovery mode.
  3. Boot into recovery. To do this, you can press the Call button +  Volume Down button and holding both simultaneously press the Power button. In the recovery mode, use the Volume buttons to navigate and Menu button to select.
  4. Important: Make a nandroid backup which will be useful if you wish to revert back.
  5. Go to Wipe and Wipe Data, cache and dalvik-cache.
  6. Go back and select Install zip from SD card>Choose zip from SD card.
  7. Select the ROM zip file and flash it. After this flash the gapps zip file to install Android Market.
  8. Go back and select Reboot system now.
  9. In case you get stuck at the penguin, re-insert the battery and boot into recovery and wipe cache.
  10. Your phone will now be running Cyanogenmod Nightlies.

    Lalit, you have experience with this rom, what exactly does not work on it? Is it generally better than Arc Xp (how much points in Antutu benchmark)? I have flashed Arc Xp, but my battery life is not too good (everything else is ok). Do you recommend me to flash Cyanogenmod Nightlies instead of Arc Xp? Thanks for the previous answers, your tutorials are very useful, keep going like that.

      Yes, it is good and I am using it! I haven’t used Arc XP so I have no idea about it. But this ROM has a very good battery life!

  • Upendra

    Lalit,

    • http://www.blogotechblog.com Lalit Indoria

      You can not charge your phone when it is switched off!

  • Sushit S

    If offline charging is not working ….
    Then how do we charge the phone .. assuming that it has completely run out of battery during some dire situation ?

    • http://www.blogotechblog.com Lalit Indoria

      Here is what the developer replied to me:

      lalit offline charging is now bugy for p350. And when you get out of battery. Just plug charger in phone. Phone will start charging and you will get boot

  • Manju

    Hi Lalit,

    Compared to all other custom roms for lg p350.

    This is the No.1 [ROM].

  • hyejin

    have you tried RC1? Which one do you think is more stable at P350? nightlies or rc1?^^

    • http://www.blogotechblog.com Lalit Indoria

      Both are equally stable. I have heard that games force close on nightlies but I never play games :D

    Lalit, according to your experience, which custom rom is the fastest, and which one do you recommend? Big thanks

      CyanogenMod 7.2 & Nightlies are fast. You can also try Perfect Peso which is fast too!

    hey,i have installed cyanogenmod nightlies for my lg optimus p350 2 months ago,and it works fine :D but i have 1 problem: yesterday,when i wanted to write my pin code i accidently wrote it wrong 3 times so i had to write my superpin alias PUK.But, i dont see a keyboard appearing or something,i just cant write my PUK in.There is just a locked screen and the text”Please use the User Guide or contact Customer Care” with the emergy call button below.Please Help !

    • http://www.blogotechblog.com Lalit Indoria

      Never faced such situation, though I am aware of PUK numbers. If the keyboard doesn’t appear, I suggest you to insert the SIM in some other phone and input the PUK number!
