LG Vortex (VS660)

This phone has reportedly been rooted by a XDA poster using z4root but there are no roms or recoveries for it. Any chance you guys could whip up a rom?

I have an LG Vortex and i am making a custom rom for it
I got my rom to boot up and everything works fine but one thing so far
I want to remove Bing and have all Google
So i remove the bing apk
and added google
Now when i push my hard key for search it gives me an error about LGHome has to force close
so i am thinking that bing is some how in LGhome.apk
any help on this would be awesome

They released the source code for the LG Vortex (if that's helpful) but I don't know exactly when.
Look for VS660. That is the Vortex's model number.

This phone is going back to the store in a couple of days unless there is some sort of AOSP ROM working on it. The software that ships with it is riddled with bugs. Calls only sometimes connect over bluetooth, Google Maps force closes a LOT, GPS takes forever to get a fix, RTMP and HTTP audio streams are broken in EVERY app, USB connection mode options display when the charger is plugged in and then the options won't go away until you restart the phone, when in use and plugged in to the charger it dies faster than it charges... what a piece of junk.
On top of all of that, the phone ships with a bunch of bloatware. Normally this would be fine until you realize that it's all running constantly, with no way to disable/uninstall it and it uses more than 50MB of RAM. That's just unacceptable on an entry-level phone that already has limited resources.
