MMS seems to be the only thing NOT working
Just in case anybody missed it, you can apparently run Gingerbread on the LG Optimus V now.
Find most of the info, and downloads, here
I'm not completely sure about the install process, but if you're rooted you're already 90% there. Since the instructions offered were a bit vague, I eventually found the set that worked for me (after getting my darned phone stuck in a temporary bootloop):
- Download the kernel and the Google Apps, at the least
- Move them both to the root of the phone's SD card
- Restart the phone in recovery mode
- Wipe and clear everything possible.
- Wipe Data/factory reset
- Wipe cache partition
- Format boot, system, data, cache, everything available
- Wipe the Dalvik cache too
- Flash AoSP Mod
- Flash the GApps Mod
- Reboot the phone
This isn't really new. Gingerbread has been available since the phone was released. You can get cm7 or aosp.
mms doesn't work, incoming only I believe, as well as some bluetooth problems. Also, battery seems to drain faster that the 2.2 ROMs.
Oops. It surprised me. Didn't see any posts or anything on it either, although a quick search of the forum did reveal that something was available. This is AoSP with CyanogenMod integrated, so it's the best of both worlds.
And did MMS ever worked for Virgin Mobile? I'll forgo the ability for now, and just use URLy or TextFree to get that stuff across.
You can either eat the two peanuts I gave to you, or crush them..

I like MMS right now so I will wait until LG releases their official 2.3 update via Virgin Mobile. But let's just say I have thought about doing this many times.
I would add it up there, but for some reason I dont have the option to edit my first post...
Incoming mms is fixed in the aosp build. Bluetooth issues remain, but are being worked on.
