thanks, here's the ROM I'm using on the optimus:

cyanogen thunderg ota eng.mik 6.5.5.zip

There's a whole thread on xda here:

I have both phones rooted with gingerbreak, and loaded with Amon_RA 2.2.1 recovery. I tried all the other 2.3 ROM's but I liked the one I linked above the most, smooth and fast compared to the stock LG android ROM with near identical similarities to the Cyanogen 7 I run on my nexus one.

one question kingnubian, does your optimus one have 3g with Fido?? I am currently with Fido as well and am only getting Edge on the phones. Do you know what can cause this?
Orange mobile is from Europe right? UK if I remember correctly... If so then your Optimus One's dont have the right 3G frequencies for North America and the best they'll ever get is EDGE.

Telus, Bell, Rogers and all their bargain brands (Koodo, Virgin, Fido, etc.) use 850/1900 MHz HSPA, and Europe uses 2100 MHz.
