The LG Optimus Black P970 had already received some CyanogenMod 9 love earlier which was also stable but an official one. The device then received an official ICS update in France which was leaked and made available to everyone who owns this device. Up next is Jelly Bean Android 4.1 and Android 4.2. Since LG is not providing any further updates to this device, LG Optimus Black users now need to depend upon custom ROMs to taste Jelly Bean.
What could be better than a CyanogenMod 10 ROM that gives you a taste of Jelly Bean? This time it is official. The CyanogenMod team is working hard on compiling CyanogenMod 10.1 ROM for this device. Please note that a CyanogenMod 10.0 is already available as a stable build and gives you Android 4.1.
The CyanogenMod 10.1 ROM will give you Android 4.2 along with some goodies like Notification bar power toggles, Swype-style keyboard input and a new Camera app. While all this enhances your Android experience on the phone, you can also be assured that the CyanogenMod team will release a stable build of the ROM pretty soon.
To get Jelly Bean running on your device, you need to download the ROM from the link below or use the ROM Manager app to get these builds. You can grab the zip file and place it too your device’s SD card. Backup all important data on your device and flash the zip file via recovery mode and make sure you wipe data, cache and dalvik cache to avoid force close issues. The installation is pretty simple but if you face any issues, feel free to comment below.
