    Instructions to use Reborn ROM:
    *MAKE A NANDROID BACKUP BEFORE FLASHING. THIS IS NOT AN OPTION.*

    1. Download Reborn ROM. Do not open it, do not extract it, do not rename it.
    2. Place on root of sdcard.
    2. Reboot to recovery.
    3. Wipe data, cache, and dalvik-cache.
    4. Flash Reborn ROM.
    5. Reboot and enjoy!
    6. Make sure you check out this thread for some awesome themes!

    Note: The fast transitions will not take effect until the phone is rebooted after the first boot of a fresh flash. After that first reboot the setting will stick.

    Known Bugs specific to this ROM:
    • Our launcher doesn't play nice with different LCD density's because the PNG's do not scale. Default density is 160. If you'd like to change your density you need to use a different launcher/home replacement. This is not something we are looking into changing.


    Reporting an issue:
    If you identify an issue that's not already listed in the bugs section above please do the following.
    PLEASE DO NOT REPORT GENEREAL ANDROID/SPRINT/FROYO/LG BUGS.
    • If you are running a custom kernel do not report the issue until you have gone back to the kernel provided with the ROM, and can duplicate the issue.
    • If you are running a task killer/battery saver/app smasher etc etc.... do not report the issue until you have removed the task killer, rebooted your phone, and can duplicate the issue.
    • If you are having an issue with any app that you download from the market or any other source, please do not report the issue to us. There is a very good chance this has little or nothing to do with the ROM and everything to do with that specific app. You should check to see if others on similar ROM's are having an issue with that app. Check to see if the app dev has a bugs list. check to see if the app is compatible with your version of Android. Email the app dev to see if they are aware. Uninstall and reinstall the app. etc... etc... etc...
    • If you are not on our newest version of the ROM AND did not do a full wipe prior to flashing, do not report an issue until you have done so.
    • Do not use this thread as your personal help forum. We understand you may have questions about things that are unrelated to the ROM but you want them answered quick so you post them in here. These types of questions will be moved out of the thread, which requires us to manually intervene, please save us the time. You will notice that the same people who are active in this thread are active in every Optimus thread. Post your question outside of this thread, in the general area for assistance.
      EX: How do I mount or unmount my SD card when i connect to a PC? This is a legitimate question, but has nothing to do with the ROM.
    • Duplicate the issue. If you don't know how it happened or how to do it again, neither do we lol
    • Have you rebooted your phone and after reboot can duplicate the issue? If not please do.
    • Post very detailed instructions on how to duplicate the issue, for example:
      -Click Menu > Settings > Display
      -Un-check "Auto Rotate Screen" then the phone punches me in the face


    Credits & Thanks:
    - Many credits are given in the changelog. Please take a moment and read them.
    - The AndroidCentral Family
    - Beezy and KSmithInNY for their work on ThundeROM
    - untermensch for his reboot mod tutorial.

    Love the new ROM!

    This may have been asked numerous times so please excuse me, but is there a way to change the shortcuts using the LG Home Launcher? I love the launcher, I just would love to change some of the shortcuts on the bar.

    Thanks.

    Just when I was on the verge of ThundeROM, so please excuse the questions. Is Nameless ROM overclocked out of the box? What makes this an improvement over ThundeROM? Will the IQ agent removal only work on this ROM?

    Random names that immediately came to mind:
    ROMstar
    ROMulus
    WickedROM
    ROMaster

    Just flashed, dunno if this is something I did wrong (UI looks great, btw =) ), but when I press the browser button, it opens the default browser and then opens opera mini ontop of that... any ideas?

    EDIT: Nevermind, read through the thread and just put theopera mini app on the home bar =)

    Clear defaults (menu->settings->applications->manage applications) on Opera mini and then drop which ever one you prefer in the task bar. If your prefer Mini then put mini in there and set it as default browser.

    Can we flash the "stock buttons.zip" found with ThundeROM to fix the wake buttons? I know we can edit the buttons manually if need be.

    I still have no clue why anyone would set it so only the power button wakes the phone. Even if a button does get pressed in your pocket the lock screen prevents dialing so the worst that happens is your screen comes on for a matter of seconds.

    Edit: Oh and you should call it "ROMper"
