    Dunno which is better, but Cyanogen is way more popular ans *should* be supported better.

    For some reason though, Android Market crashes when I try to open it. :/. Is their any version that works with 2.3.4?

    EDIT: Fixed

    I fucked up my ROM today installing a kernel and now I tired a nightly rom, It gets to the "touch android to start" and as soon as I touch it, it reboots

    Hold x while pwering on. Go into recovery. Wipe data/cache. Remember you will lose all user installed apps but that should get you back and running.

    I tried that but it got hung in a boot loop. I went to recovery and use nanodroid and flashed to original stock rom. Its still rooted surprisingly so I will give more roms another go.

    I found a new nightly build with marketplace that I may install.

    How to Root the LG Optimus GT540 Steps:

    Turn on the device and click the icon to open the phone dialer
    Enter the code ’3845#*540#’
    Select the option ‘Module Test’, then ‘Stability Test’ then ‘Enable Root Permission’
    You will now be prompted for a password – enter :SWIFT::GT540:
    A toast message will briefly appear saying ‘OK’ – your root access is now enabled!
    Reboot your device, and now when you connect via ADB, you’ll see you have a root prompt (#).

    You can now download and install ChainsDD’s excellent Superuser app from here (I used the su-2.1-cd-unsecure version). Have a good day!

    What are the advantages of rooting? Besides the obvious one of installing torrented apps and such.

    I just checked, and there is no "Enable Root Permission" option. Maybe they removed it in the firmware update.

    You can install pirated apps without root. You can tweak and customize EVERYTHING!

    Don't like the camera app in 2.3, I think Froyo's was much better and cleaner... That said, the 2.3 Oxygen rom I'm still running right now is DAMN quick, responsive and clean!

    Check here and XDA :)

    I prefer it over Cyanogen because there is a bare minimum of installed apps.

    Gonna try the Oxygen HBOOT as well to increase the size of the data partition at the cost of the (unused) system partition space :)

    I don't think there are even any real custom roms out for the Atrix yet. Everything is just p-roms or tweaked official beta roms.

    Not worth the hassle yet.
