    It's seems like you have a bad download. Is your internet conection slow? Are you trying to download with 3G?
    Go to CNET Downloads and download a MD5 checker if using Windows to download.
    If using phone go to MacDonalds or someplace with free WiFi. Download AFV (Android File Verifier) from the PlayStore.

    Make sure the MD5 sum matches before you attempt to flash.

    Just the way it has been once I put all the theme, launcher elements into the ROM. I don't have any reason to just move anything to the SD card. Link2SD actually links your apps, which make them open faster.
    I think Link2SD (or something close to it) is the only way to go with this ROM.
    You must have at least an 8GB SD card for Link2SD to function properly (this is because you can only use no more than 20% of the actual space available on the SD card for the partition, and Link2SD needs 1-1.5GB partition).

    I always format the boot, cache, data and system (under mounts/storage), but hesitate on the SD ext b/c i'm afraid that it will erase the roms on the SD.

    My SD card is formatted with three partitions: Data, Apps and swap. Which of those is deleted when i format sd-ext? Which is visible to Windows (where i drop files onto the card)? I made the mistake before of formatting the card and no longer having a backup or rom to restore from.

    I just noticed that when I "wipe data/factory reset" - which i always do, it formats data,cache,system and sd-ext. do i still need to manually do it under mounts and storage, or is that redundant?
    As for the non-charging issue, could it be the kernel to blame? Can I flash a new one with the new rom? I'm not sure how that works.

    Thanks for your continued assistance. Tom
    I have not tried this ROM yet, so this is generic advise, but this is how I handle sd card formatting. When you download the ROM, put it on your computer, not the phone. Then, in your recovery, you can completely repartition and reformat your SD card. This solves/precludes many problem - you want to start with a fresh slate. Once you have wiped and formatted everything, you can use the recovery to make the sd card storage available on your computer - in my recovery, it's called "USB-MS toggle". Then, on the computer, you copy the ROM file and the GAPPS file onto the phone's sd card into a directory that you create and name whatever you want - "install", "local", "mystuff", etc. Now you eject the phone from the computer, push the button in recovery to get out of the usb-ms menu, and you can flash your ROM. It's in the directory you copied it to. This phone does not use cache on the sd card, so just create one FAT partition and one EXT partition. Remember that you can always use your recovery boot to get files onto and off your sd card. You can also do a full backup of your phone in the recovery and copy the backups onto your computer using USB-MS, as above.

    Well, my SD card is 16GB with a 1GB partition, so that shouldn't be a problem. Except Play Store on my Optimus isn't working, so I can't go get it. (And since the phone won't connect to it, trying to go on the internet version and do it from a computer is out as well.)

    Yes and yes.

    With my bad memory the only way I can kept track of my updates is to give them a alpha designation on the end.
    The C is for the intergrated camera fix, the X is for the xperia keyboard, the 3GPS is for the 3G and GPS fix.
    This version is just a test release. If it improves 3G for you considering you lack there of, it should drastically improve everybody's. The GPS fix needs to be tested as well if you can please.

    Once I know the 3G and GPS fixes work I'll drop the CX on the actuall release.

    Gingerbread, Jellybean & Ice Cream Sandwich in general are memory intensive and power intensive. They chew through battery like candy. (My ex has an Optimus G and her battery barely survives the day if she doesn't have her charger on hand...and that runs ICS out the box with an OTA update to JB waiting) Which was why I got into rooting and ROMs to begin with...that update to ZVJ & Gingerbread was pure MURDER on my battery!!!

    Depending on what I do, however, I can get anywhere from 2 1/2 to 7 1/2 hours out of a full charge out of my Optimus S...and that's with a battery that's about to need replacing. This has been the case with CM9, CM10, SlimBean, The JBC, and even this. But I've noticed that sometimes, if I just let it sit there in sleep mode, it actually REGAINS some juice. I've had it go from just about dead (like from 5-15%) to around 30-40%...by itself. That said, one thing that should help your energy consumption is to switch your phone to Airplane Mode at night - remember, these things eat up more juice FINDING a signal than actually maintaining it. Unless, of course, you get calls or messages during the night.

    AndyOpie150, my device is going BONKERS here...seems like NONE of the GApps want to work!! Play Store crashes outright, Gmail works for a while then crashes, Hangouts crashes outright...I've tried reflashing the SlimBean GApps, but to no avail...don't tell me I'm gonna have to wipe everything and reflash everything AGAIN (meaning having to reinstall everything AGAIN)...

    That's an interesting question. Texts MAY still come in, but you more than likely would need to switch back out of airplane mode to actually get'em.

    It will get better as the battery stats get built up. Takes anywhere from a week to a week and a half.

    I have everything turned off, everything. WiFi, 3G, GPS,Bluetooth, Auto Sync (I use Periodic Auto Sync to set up specific times and duration of sync), etc. I only turn on something when I need it.
    I have had this version on my phone for a while now and whatever the battery level is at when I go to bed, thats what it is at when I wake up.

    If you are still having problems after a couple of weeks then it's a bad app that's causing the battery drain (causing a wake lock).

    a perhaps not so amusing side note:
    lg thunderc battery holds a wake lock.
    it would have to be patched to match the thunderg battery, which uses a different rpc entirely and won't talk with the battery chip, to allow deep sleep in 3.08 kernel it looks like.

    Well....should I just hint at the possibility then.
    All the problems anybody is experiencing (if they wiped and formatted everything properly and followed my install guide to letter) is usually due to an app. Weather it is the wrong version for the ROM (restored from an ICS or lower ROM), moved to the SD card in the normal fashion (not linked), or just a bad app.
    I have a V made on either Monday or Friday because it's quality is way down there.
    I had some problems right at first, but once I cleaned up my apps and let my battery stats build up, I wouldn't use any other ROM.
    I also try not to turn power off, unless trying to flash a ROM.
    Had this V for almost 2 and a half years and don't turn it off unless I'm flashing a new ROM.

    Sooo ...Andy, are you saying, if i don't link my apps using links2sd, that i will have problems with this rom, because as you know i'm still using the original 2gb sd card?

    Is it even worth my time flashing this rom, or will i always have problems due to the lack of links2sd?

    I didn't know you still had the stock SD card.
    Yes, I think you will have problems. Depends on how many apps you move to the SD card and what apps are moved to it.
    Sorry about that.
    I think you should stick with the MiRaGe until you can get an 8GB or larger SD card.

    What phone do you have?
    What baseband is it?
    Did you check the MD5 sum before you flashed it?
    Did you move any apps to the main FAT32 SD card partition?
    Are you using the stock camera app or a one from PlayStore?

    Go here: CNET Downloads/MD5-Checker

    Go to the first post in this thread and copy the MD5 sum for the ROM and Gapps. Use the MD5 Checker app to see if the MD5 sum of the Downloads matches the MD5 sum from the first post. If they don't, download ROM and Gapps again.

    If they do match, let me know I'll try to figure it out why the focus is messed up.

    How did you make the partition?
    What size SD card do you have?
    What size did you make the partition?
    What is it formatted to, FAT32, ext.2, ext.3, or ext.4?

    I've downloaded and flashed the ROM many times switching between many ROMs like cm9 . Every time the camera preview is grainy like a movie theater screen and never focuses well .
