Nice one Paul!

Will it be possible to make the "slap the O2X to move the cursor" feature work on CM7?

+1 for this, its actually a really handy feature I miss having in cm. Smart share was handy and some of their widgets (I liked the firework live wallpaper too). They are all nice but not essentials as the markets served up some alternatives.

The only other issue I have is 1080p playback through HDMI cuts out intermittently bit I've not given your version if cm a whirl to know of its any better

There are some things the lg apps are better at.

Here would be my list:
- the camera app
- contacts app (no video calling with google's..)
- on screen phone
- tap on phone side to move cursor

Calendar widget and weather widget would be awesome... the CM/AOSP calendar is abit rubbish.

Either way nice one Paul!

+1 for Smartshare

A good Fireworks live wallpaper is Skyrocket Live Wallpaper

yes. These one + RADIO FM.
Tnx Paul, if you'll do this, you will create the PERFECT ROM.
The 2 problems of CM7 roms, are RADIO FM and CAMERA. If you fix these....

Its a shame LG messed up the main software so badly, from this it seems like there's demand for most if their "bloatware"

Tell me HOW you can have a working CAMERA or FM RADIO with CM7???

In CM7 camera has NO STABILIZATION, and record @ 9 FPS at 720 or 1080 P.
LG Camera works great.

In CM7 there's no RADIO FM.
LG Radio FM Works great.

Off course is not a fault of CM7 developers, these things are closed and they can't do anything more than that (without sources) .

I really like the LG Dialer. I hate go dialer...
The great smart dialing is one of my last reason for using the stock firmware.

And I like the alarm clock with it's integrated timer and stopwatch. On top of that it's just better than the AOSP/CM alarm clock app, even though it's LG that's made it.. :P

What I really liked from the LG stock roms were:

- Alarm/Time/Stopwatch app
- Calendar+widget
- Camera
- FM Radio
- ringtones! (the one in CM7.1 sucks, specially the alarm ones)

Paul you're the man. :)

I switched back from CM7 to v20e/i/j ROMs, mainly because CM7 won't read SIM contacts, and nobody seemed to care, that and the dialer which wasn't very clever compared to the LG one.

It's easy enough to get the ringtones. Just copy the LG ones into /system/media/audio/ringtones with ADB or ES File Explorer or similar. When I was trying CM7 I made a little tweaks zip for CWM which did that, as well as installing the Roboto Font, Stock SD card mounting, Polaris Office and Titanium Backup.

Decided to come back to stock after a couple of BSOD's which seemed to be something due to bluetooth, but I'd be keen to try a MCR which included a few LG apps along with the next CM7 stable version. My requests would be Stock Dialler/Contacts, Alarm/Desk Clock, Smartshare and the Camera.
