    there is a bug with gingerbread recovery that when you factory hard reset (vol. down and power during boot) that creates a recovery boot loop. if you do this, flashing the exitrecovery.zip and rebooting will reboot yer device properly.

    edit. another bug i found, you cannot make a backup of this rom. recovery backups' the original stock settings.

    **************************************************************************
    *UPDATE* this rom will and can be activated. metro pcs data cdma depending on area should work. third party data should work. sprint data still unknown.

    thanks again to all the developers responsible for creating this rom.

    1. The exitrecovery.zip doesn't contain the script you "claimed" you modified. It's the same one as before, and it's not the one you linked me the other day. Which one works on the device?

    2. I see you added the copyright to the updater-script, but that's not the issue here. I'm trying to figure out just WHAT modified in the script before, other than adding your name.

    3. Just include the boot image in the zip.

    4. Does it only flash in CWM? If not, don't be misleading. Flash in recovery of choice.

    Q1.

    i apologize, lol. this is where i grabbed the the .sh (no tyler.) https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/...iry=1400017353
    is where i grabbed the exitrecovery.zip. i will take my name out also,lol.

    i had no idea he wrote the postrecovery.sh, which is what i edited. if you check the link you will see the original script is different, which is why i added myself.

    ok. changed the credits, is it cool?
    the link from the post on this forum contains the accurate script. the link i messaged you is the diff.

    Q2.when i say "modify the script", i mean i deleted some of the original script from the original exitrecovery.zip i dl'd, and added the the appropriate device specific script for the viper. actually-#!/sbin/sh
    busybox echo -ne "\066" | busybox dd bs=1 seek=4107 count=1 conv=notrunc of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p8 is the original script for the exitrecovery.zip.

    Q3.my boot.img is packaged as a flashable zip for convenience

    Q4.the only known recoverys for the viper (gingerbread) is joshs and the cannibal open/panda recoveries. joshs' recovery reboot doesnt work. cot wouldnt select any options, it would freeze and selecting would reset to the main menu. this is based on my personal experience and why i decided to compile a recovery. a person capable of flashing a rom is also capable of deciding which recovery to flash it with. i am not posting links to faulty software (or recommending).

    anyways. this rom will not "possess" yer device.lol. you can restore to original zvd stock via backup or flash with lgflashtool.metropcs data may or may not work, i will personally look into the issue.

    I'm not trying to be a jerk intentionally, I was trying to ask a question and he kept ignoring it. That's all tbh.

    Edit: And I have been trying to help out by making contributions to Josh's git repo. It's really hard to do so without the device so usually when I ask the questions I do need a response to help with getting things fixed especially the device tree

    I know, but like, at least try to be polite about it, you sound insanely rude.

    no worries, i appreciate the concern. nigel has a point, the sooner the device tree is stable, an actual build can be compiled. kernel dev anyone?
