Install Android 3.2.2 Honeycomb on LG Optimus Me P350

Author: | Posted in LG Optimus Me P350 96 Comments

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

If you own an LG Optimus Me P350, you must be knowing that your LG Optimus Me runs Android 2.2 Froyo. LG had not provided any update for the OS, though you can try out CyanogenMod 7.2 or CyanogenMod Nightlies ROM to get Android 2.3.7. If you wish to go beyond this, you can install Honeycomb on LG Optimus Me P350. ICS is coming soon for this phone and we’ve got some screenshots of ICS 😀 Coming back to Honeycomb, Cips Gokhle has developed this ROM and Venkat Kamesh has rectified the bugs. It is a themed CM 7.2 ROM and everything works well on this. I am using this ROM right now and it really has a very good UI. Let us now see some screenshots and the tutorial to install Honeycomb on LG Optimus Me P350.

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 Honeycomb on LG Optimus Me P350

  1. Download – Honeycomb ROM – ROM zip file | Google Apps | Browser fix zip files.
  2. Place all the three zip 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. Select Install zip from SD card>Choose zip from SD card and select the three zip files you placed in your SD card and flash them in order as listed in Step 1.
  6. Go back and select Reboot system now.
  7. In case you get stuck at the logo or face force close issues, re-insert the battery and boot into recovery and wipe cache.
  8. Your phone will now be running Android 3.2.2 Honeycomb.

In this way you can easily install Honeycomb on LG Optimus Me P350. If you face any issues, feel free to comment below 🙂

    Mr. Lalit, what is this rom compared to any CM7, or MIUI rom in terms of speed, performances and battery life? Which is better in global? Thanks in advance

    • The Cyanogenmod Nightlies, Cyanogenmod 7, MIUI and Honeycomb are all fully functional working ROMs with a little difference in UI. The usage of ROMs depends on the user’s taste. I am using Honeycomb right now!

  • Mitesh

    Do i need to root ma phone before installing this

  • THE CHAIN HACKER

    DID U POST THIS TUTORIAL AFTER SEEING MY COMENT YESTERDAY MR LALIT INDORIA?. ANYWAYS THIS A GREAT TUTORIAL AND THANKS FOR THE BROWSER FIX AS I GOT CONFUSED ON HOW TO DO IT WHEN VENKAT KAMSH POSTED IT ON XDA

    • Yes, thanks for letting me know 🙂 ICS is coming soon and I will be posting a tutorial to install the alpha version of ICS on LG Optimus Me

  • THE CHAIN HACKER

    AND THERE IS STEP MISSING WIPING ANDROID.SECURE FOLDER

    • I don’t think there is any need to do that because I was on Cyanogenmod Nightlies and then I flashed the three zip files. It has been 24 hours but I did not face even a single error till now! So I don’t think that would be necessary. If you face any issues, please let me know!

    • THE CHAIN HACKER

      OK AND AGAIN A MILLIONS OF THANKS FOR THIS GREAT TUTORIAL
      IF I HAPPEN TO STUMBLE UPON A NEW ROM FOR LG OPTIMUS ME /PECAN I WILL BE SURE TO LET U KNOW MR LALIT INDORIA 🙂 😀

  • Dare

    Lalit, did you test this rom with Antutu benchmark (or some other benchmark) to compare results with CM7? Globaly, can we expect some improvement in terms of speed using this rom? Thanks, you are the best, keep going!

    • Thanks for your appreciation but I haven’t tested it using Antutu Benchmark, though it performs well as it leaves 74MB RAM free hence making it fast. But it is not good for music!

  • dam

    im install but the phone after reset and reset and not run

  • Dan Alelojo

    Hi Lalit,

    Any fix on wifi? Even how close you are to a wireless source, it is still showing 2 bars only.

    I appreciate it.. 🙂

    More power to Blogotechblog.com

    • No, there isn’t any such fix released by the developer! :/

  • danghaibang

    How about the battery power on this rom ?

  • danghaibang

    The font in this rom look so small, i hope the deveploper can repair it..

  • SATISH

    I could easily install this ROM on to my LG-p350.
    But i’ve a problem with tethering. it is not working.
    Also there is no switch to toggle to 3G.

  • Amrit

    Hi Lalit

    First of all, A BIG THANK YOU for your efforts and making it possible to port higher versions of Android on the device

    I own a LG P350 and am running the HoneyComb for the past 2 days – truly enjoying my experience

    However, as with all customizations, I had some queries :

    1> Is there a possibility of adding more themes ? That would be great 🙂

    2> An enhancement in the System Font would be great as I found it small in size – I am talking about an option where we can change the font or atleast the size of it. Personally, the current font is great, but sometimes a bit difficult in reading (I have FeedR installed and use it for news RSS feeds to keep myself updated)

    Since its just 2 days I got this installed, I am still reviewing it and will let you know of any further suggestions in this regard

    Once again, Thanks to you, Cips Gokhle and Venkat Kamesh for this wonderful ROM

    amRit

    • Amrit,
      There are some ways for you to change the font of your android phone which can be found on the internet. You can search for it. Unfortunately, this is not original Honeycomb but it is a themed one and hence you can not apply any theme!

    • xandrie

      amret you can change your font, go to spare parts and change the font size, and also you can change the font style, download font installer in the android market

  • Danjo

    impressive, but the fonts are way too tiny. i hope you can at least make a bigger font for this rom. 🙂

  • Kit

    Mr. Lalit, I installed this on my LG P350 but since yesterday i cannot get past the “activating root access” part. I’ve removed the battery and re-booted several times, still it freezes there. I’ve also wiped cache, but still i’m stuck with the same problem. Any solutions? Or I could just uninstall Honeycomb. Just tell me how. Thanks in advance.

    • Try to wipe all data and reflash the ROM

  • chobot1976

    I can not find the FM radio app. Help me pls

    • chobot1976

      I found, sorry

  • nikolaiffb

    I used this ROM a few days. Battery life is good. Like stock ROM. Font is too small in some apps.
    In Benchmark test i got 60% better results than Stock ROM.
    Keyboard is qwerty, it isn’t good because display on Optimus ME is too small. I prefer LG Keyboard like in Froyo 2.2.
    ROM is realy fast, good for gaming 😉
    Gmail has theme (BlackOut 2.3.5) and it can’t be updated. If you unistall, you can’t install other version.
    I think that Launcher (Honeycomb) has some bugs. In some situations he just unexpectedly stop working. 😀
    Regards,
    Nikola.

    • Try to remove battery, re-insert it and press Volume Down + Call + Power button together. This will also reset your phone anyway!
