    [How-To] Simplified UNROOT and return to STOCK

    (near the bottom on the op) *you can skip the rest of the op* -the direct links are in the op
    BTW I updated the link you provided to use V9 recovery. Previously I had updated to use VD recovery since VD was rootable using gingerbreak. Now I switched back to recommending V9 recovery so you can root VH.

    I whipped up some quick instructions to root ZVH:

    These are temporary instructions until someone comes up with some nice pretty *****-proof instructions.

    I'll be around for another 1/2 hour or so and can assist if you run into issues. Just post on that thread and I'll respond, hopefully quickly.

    has anyone had any success with an OC kernel? xionia (both OG and redux) and picasticks give some pretty nasty lag and graphical issues (for me anyway)

    I have not. Its prolly because those kernels are for 2.2?

    If you are trying to flash ZVH, then you probably have the wrong update.zip

    If you have already flashed ZVH and are trying to root it, then that is an expected error.

    Hopefully it won't be long before we have a ROM that you don't have to do the V9 backwards route to get to a custom ROM

    Using this rom and also with GingerKernel; it is working nicely so far. I can't get Wi-Fi hotspot to work although I'm sure that is normal and will be fixed soon enough. Glad to be on official gingerbread finally!

    Edit: Haha right after I said this my phone freezes at the browser with Wi-Fi enabled and reboots. Haven't overclocked it yet. Not sure whats up.
    Edit2: Frozen at Sprint now... :\ bah

    I think I screwed up the default OC settings, I'm uploading a new kernel build at the moment.

    Edit: Released.

    Yeah I actually had it reboot when it was just sitting on my desk and not in use. Updated to v03... seems like the rebooting has stopped now. Is Wi-Fi hotspot something that will require the kernel to be updated/changed?

    Thanks for this ROM! I just went from Nick's Shell ROM to this (after updating to gingerbread and rooting, of course). It seems to work great. I'll report any issues I have.

    I don't know if you are going to continue developing and adding features to this, or if you were just putting this out there as a de-Sprinted stock ROM for those who didn't want the bloat. As I said, I came from Shell ROM so clearly I don't do the "bells and whistles" that others like. The only suggestions or requests I'd have would be a) get rid of the bootup sound, and b) give an option to only have the lock key be able to unlock the phone to reduce the chance of butt dialing. I tried to flash a keyboard layout .zip from Reborn that got rid of the home button wake-up, but that doesn't seem to work on this ROM.

    Anyway, thanks a ton!

    Drew, I dont see any updates. Last update was 9/8? What am I missing?

    Hot spot needs to be reworked. It wont be going until I can figure out the hacks that need to be rebuilt on the framework.

    0. I plan on contributing. This is my third ROM series for the Optimus S and I have two ROM series for the Evo 3D (Not sure where that came from?).

    1. Good request!

    2. I dont understand what you mean about unlock key? Can you link me to an example?

    3. I cant say that I am shocked to hear that mods built for Froyo dont work in Gingerbread. lol

    I think he means he doesn't want the phone to unlock unless you hit the power button. When stock many buttons will wake the screen....which I prefer lol....but apparently some people have issues butt dialing even with a lock screen. And just so everyone is aware you can change the keyboard settings yourself by editing your thunder.kl file. There are instructions in a thread somewhere lol.

    Edit: I haven't flashed the ZVH update or gROM so I'm assuming the keyboard file is still "thunder.kl"

    Ohhhhh.... Ok. Yeah, I got you now. Makes sense. On my 3D it doesnt do that and I never have butt dial issues anyways, lol. But I will look into that.

    Keyboard: I believe so as well. I cant say for sure because I am away from the ability to check...

    I just flashed this morning and looking good. I do have one issue though. If I plug the phone in via USB to a machine that has the LG drivers, it will charge and ask for USB Mass storage everytime. If I plug into a machine without the drivers, I have to enable/disable USB debug to charge and I never get prompted for USB Mass storage.

    Ok... Thats strange. I cant say that I am having the same results but I will try to replicate and let you know what I find.

    Thanks. That is still the file. The thread about it is here:
    [MOD] Remap your hardware keys

    I followed the instructions in that thread and set the four physical buttons below the screen to NONE from their original setting of WAKE_DROPPED and rebooted, and now everything is good. Of course that will probably get overwritten next time I flash, so next I need to learn how to create a flashable .zip to make those changes easier.
