    The new roms require VH baseband (only exception is thekraven's CM7 which is VD baseband), so in order for them to work, you will have to update to VH baseband (links should be included in the OP post of the rom your looking at)

    ROM
    HydroROM 1.1.0

    Default re: Sprint Optimus guide to Rooting, ROMs, Recoveries & Themes

    I've lurked on these boards for a while, but finally registered to download files and ask a few questions.

    I'm running a ZVH, all the standard implements of torture. The zergling rush from ZVHauto was successful, so I'm rooted and running clockwork. I flashed and installed gRom, which works beautifully, except for one thing: tethering.

    The wifi tether app that comes with gRom doesn't work. I checked the thread, suggested updating. I tried beta 6(which came with the rom), and beta 9, and both don't work.

    I tried jumping over to opti-rom, and that couldn't help me either.

    Does your mom rom support tethering? Is there an app out there that will work with gRom? I'll go with whatever rom works, I hate the sprint one anyways.

    I think that Your Mom does include the wireless tethering widget. GIve that a go until HydroROM drops.

    If I am running stock GB with the latest version (8.1) of GingerKernel, and I tried to to flash a Your Mom Rom, what would happen? Would I revert back to GingerKernel 6.1 (because YMR now ships with 6.1), would I stay with 8.1, would I brick the phone, ow would something else happen?

    ROM
    RasbeanJelly/DanteRom v4

    Default

    It would flash your mom in full (assuming you did a full wipe as told to :P) including the 6.1 version of gingerkernal. No issues, just boot backing android after flashing the rom, and give it a few good minutes (go have a beer or smoke a cigarette) then boot into recover and flash gingerKv8.1 and reboot and you are good to go, just remember you perform no wipes to flash the kernal.

    Have you got Xionia custom recovery installed yet? That would be the next step in the path... then do the nandroid backup, then ROM-ing.

    You have to use 'flash_image" to install the recovery from a working Android with ADB. Check the directions for Xionia recovery for more info. It's not like some devices, where it just gets installed on reboot.

    If you are having troubles with installing recoveries, try this automated package:

    Installed ZVH by mistake? Use simple update.zip to revert to ZVD / Froyo

    Yes. You need to install a ROM which is compatible with the radio/baseband that you have installed. You have ZVD and Your Mom is a ZVH ROM, so no dice. Try going with Reborn or sROM. If you want to use Your Mom ROM, you must first follow the guide to switch your radio/baseband to ZVH.

    Rom Name: Tam Hydro ROM
    Developer:
    Summary: Gingerbread 2.3.3 ROM built from Sprint/LG ZVH source. See changelog in the thread for more details.

    If one 'l' is good, then is 'll' even better?

    Apparently not when it leads to a 404 error

    Are there any ROMs out there compatible with 2.2.2, other than Kraven's? I tried that one and it didn't work, and I confess I may have done something wrong, but I was able to flash Reborn and am using that just fine. It just makes me a little leery since it's no longer supported.

    There are several ROMs that are compatible with ZVD, though not all of them are 2.2.2; CM7 is an example. You might also try sROM. If you are confused about the difference, please see my Welcome Guide, found in the stickies.

    I don't know who is circulating the idea that Reborn is no longer supported or recommended. That ROM is about as solid as they come. The only thing that is inconvenient at present is that new users will have to update a bunch of stuff on first run, but most ROMs have you doing that if they are more than a couple months since packaging.

    Lol, first page of this thread! But if it's not true, I have no problem keeping it.

    I was thinking 2.2.2 and zvd were the same, but obviously I have more schoolin'

    yeah the ROM list needs to be updated, many ROMs that aren't included and some "discontinued" ROMS are actually still active. I would also sort the ROMs by whether they run off of ZVD or ZVH, and there is even some ICS ROMS in the works.

    Reborn is not supported by the DEV anymore, meaning he is not taking any bug reports or doing any updates. Reborn 2.2.4 is the last of the reborn line. Now that is not to say it is not widely used, cause it is, I use it myself. I still feel it is one of best roms!
    Supported Roms mean they are being actively being updated by the Dev still.

    Supported and actively developed are two different things in my view. Example: Windows XP; folks are still producing compatible software and guys like me still have to support it, but there is no active development from Micro$oft. (It really does injustice to compare Reborn ROM to MS product, but it's what comes to mind.) Same thing with an Ubuntu LTS: they mostly just maintain the repos for 3 years instead of 1.5.

    A good stable release does not need much developer support.

    I agree with you on that. Again Reborn for example, has a lot of users still that don't mind helping others with problems when they do arise. So in that sense, yes it is still supported.

    I've actually used reborn but the only issue I had was the boot loading which took 5 minutes when normally it should be 1 minute to say the least. Now I'm running S rom and it's smooth and boots easily.
