    First off, great work everyone that was involved getting this out so quick.
    OK, now a couple of questions:
    1. After updating to ZVH, are any kernels that we can use that is OC?
    2. Will data2ext still work?
    3. There is only one custom rom that is available(yes for now), so all others are incompatible, correct? What about themes? Especially from UOT?
    Thanks again, for your hard work!

    Always happy to help, hit that thanks button if I did

    1. GingerKernel by drew enabled OC. Using it now with gRom, works great.
    2. Not sure. If it isn't I assume it will be soon enough.
    3. They say that VD roms will cause problems with VH so I wouldn't if I were you.

    I'm going to wait for things to shake out and get debugged before I jump in. I'm hoping within a week we might have a Nick, Drew or Scrosler custom GB ROM that we can flash from Xionia without having to go thru the V9 recovery image and all that (wishful thinking?).

    When doing it blind, how long does it take to apply the update.zip file? Mine isn't really doing anything and I don't know if I need to try and reboot to recovery again or what my options are.

    I can't get past the LG screen and ADB won't work anymore after running the flash_image and V9 recovery

    UPDATE: I was able to use KP500 Utils to get the phone to update since I have the newer LCD screen. In that process, it let me run the update.zip file to ZVH. Now have ZVH running and waiting to check on root status

    You're gonna have to update the radio somehow; so, unless the LG tool suddenly comes to life with the update, you will be stuck going through the V9 recovery image to get the ZVH radio. ZVD radio will not likely work with ZVH roms, so it won't be as simple as just a simple flash through Xionia.

    There are great instructions here. They worked perfect for me. Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Great instructions - Went from Nick's Shell ROM to official rooted Gingerbread without any problems. The only issue I have, if you can even call it that, is that my free space went from 100MB to 43MB. I'm assuming that is because of Gingerbread itself is larger.

    ccrs8, it's mostly because the stock rom does not have the davlik cache to cache mod which frees up some space.

    Since I am doing it blind with the V9 Recovery, how long does it take to apply update.zip to ZVH? 2 minutes, 10 minutes?

    It's probably because none of the special modifications that Nick made to both Reborn and Shell don't exist yet on the only available Gingerbread ROM. Among these is moving a particular memory section out to the SD card I believe (that's where the ~extra 60MB's comes from I think). I'm sure that Nick's releases will have this back in place.

    bertimus2002, It doesn't take long at all on my phone, I would guess certainly much less than 2 minutes. I have a fast sd card (class 10) so that might make a difference too since the the phone is reading the file from sd; therefore, YMMV...

    I thought it should be a quick process, but for some reason when I follow the steps, even when blind, it will never restart into Android, so I have to use KP500 Utils to get my phone back, then try again.

    Yes, I am also rooted.

    Frustrating, guess I just have to wait until the devs find another way.

    Unless someone can get custom recovery to flash the radio without bricking your phone or someone comes out with a brand new root exploit, that's not going to happen. Just needing the V9 recovery is a lot better than needing to revert everything to V9 (including Android).

    One quick question when i root zvh does the phone need to be in recovery

    Yes, you need to eventually be in recovery, not for the whole process, but for the portion that runs rage. The instructions should tell you at some point to "reboot recovery". Prior to that you can be in Android.

    Have you tried running Android Screencast? You can see your phone's screen on your PC so you won't be doing it blindly.

    Yes, make sure you follow that guide carefully. It tells you to reboot recovery before rooting.

    I had it running, but when it went to reboot to recovery the Screencast never came back

    So the whole process of reverting to V9 recovery and updating to ZVH and rooting it takes about what on average? So far one person said about 2 minutes. Is this correct?

    No, lol, took me about 15 to 20 minutes. And I took my time.


    Edit. Second thought, it probably took me close to 30 minutes. It can definitely be done faster than that though.

    Ok, I got an Optimus handy now and was able to try it. I made sure USB debugging was enabled in Android, I started Android Screencast, I did reboot recovery from within adb shell, and it booted into V9 recovery with the recovery showing on the Android Screencast window.

    OK thanks, at least I have I idea how long it will take when I do this when I get home from work.

    I just rooted, loaded Xionia and flashed gROM. Had some hiccups but total time for me was about 30 mins. Majority was constantly reading over and over to make sure I didn't screw anything up. I'm now officially on ZVH without the sprint crapware.

    Thanks to everyone who put their time and efforts into making this an awesome phone!

    I know drew was having a hard time getting screencast to work with v9 recovery.
    I went back and tested different scenarios.

    I could not get it to work if the *first time* I started Android Screencast was from V9 recovery. It would die with a java.lang.RuntimeException (in the case the adb.exe background process was running on windows) or an "Unable to launch the application." error (if the adb.exe background process was not running)

    However I *was* able to get Android Screencast to display the V9 recovery screen if I first started it while Android was running (and saw the Android framebuff in Screencast), then did "reboot recovery" from within "adb shell".
