    I'll help you fix MMS. You don't need the kernel from AOSP, all you need is the framework from the ROM. Install AOSP, copy /system/framework/ The whole folder, and install Scott Pilgrim. Use root explorer or any other file browser and just copy the framework folder over. MMS should now work.
    Thanks, I'll try that. I did the kernel switch mostly because I wanted to use a V kernel.

    Update: No go. That just causes the the phone to not boot.

    I'll try this as soon you get the framwork done. I can't even get aosp to flash without feezing with the neweat build.

    The device specific framework overlays including mms config are at ath3nos's github. It's in the source from the new optimus s cm7 rom.

    https://github.com/ath3nos/android_device_lge_thunderc

    I'm a noob at this but if the framework code is working and we compile from source for the vm670 mms should work.

    If you want to try the framework source with building zefie's rom you can but I would build ath3nos's rom because it is active and more up to date.

    I tested 4 other ideas mmarz had about getting mms to work but none of them did. It would be a good idea though to try using that version of CM7 since zefies hasn't been updated since april?

    I'm downloading Ath3nos CM7 now, going to try these same steps mmarz listed out with that rom. I'm expecting that the mms still won't work with the trials I have run but wouldn't mind seeing what else will or won't work. Will report my findings when I have a chance to do this.

    Isn't the problem that VM sends their mms messages with a header or encryption which needs to be stripped out? That is why mms doesn't work on the Optimus V while using any of the S roms. So I would think that using the source for an S rom wouldn't be much help.

    I have been trying to reverse engineer AOSP's framework, but there are all sorts of conflicts that has made the process a nightmare. Looking at AOSP's and Zefie's framework-res.apk side by side, there are only a handful of changes, but those changes shift the indices over such that the only way to make it work is to recompile the entire rom.

    I think I'm going to give up for now. Everything in the "rom" posted here should work except for receiving mms messages.

    I flashed zefies rom then I deleted the message app then I installed the messaging app from aosp and I was able to send and receive but recieves under a weird phone number and you don't get the picture you get the code from it. I do believe its the message app itself that needs tweaked to make this work. Remember I'm new at this but it might be worth a try.

    That's what we mean by MMS not working, it gives you a 99999999 number and a bunch of chinese characters or whatever for the message. Mmarz knows a lot about this stuff and I have tested 5 different options on fixing this with no success. Appears, as he said, that unless AOSP releases source code (which isn't going to happen) we wont get a fix for this.

    Which is a huge contradiction. He calls himself aosp (android open source platform), but wont release his source code, lol. His decision, but contradictory none the less.

    Yeah, that's what I like about android and linux the most. Their ability and desire to share everything. Sharing the source could only make all of the gb roms better when they can help fix issues or add things amongst themselves like the froyo devs do here daily. If it wasn't for their sharing than we wouldn't have such great options available to us.

    Isn't it interesting that the people in the AOSP camp forced the bumblebee Dev into revealing source on 6-25-2011 and yet a simple fix for this ROM which would be some source code probably will not materialize.

    way back sometime ago, xda-aosp got threatened by google itself and was told to package the g-apps separate from his rom... that's the last I heard of him getting leaned on.
    poor obi got tagged because kernel source is required by the GPL, but unfortunately rom-source isn't afaik, so unfairness reigns.
    it's unfortunate that he doesn't respond to all the public requests for his source, I can't imagine how it'd hurt him any to release it, even just as a patchset.

    I don't think it would hurt anything at all, but some people are stingy. Can't really hold it against him though, it's his right to keep it to himself.

    I think he means aosp as in he tries to make his builds as vanilla as possible. I remember him saying way back in the day that we wants to eventually get all the CM7 stuff out of his rom but he still needs it. When it's out of alpha, I think he wants a CM7 version and a vanilla version.

    Yeah maybe. I can't even flash aosp cm7 anymore. I was running his 5.31 build, then I flashed bumblebee. I then wanted to go back so I downloaded rom manager, installed its current cwm, then direct dl'd aosp. It freezes on android logo every time. I'm getting tired of even trying, but I think I'm gonna try to flash xionia's cwm and try once more.

    I'm surprised none of the fanboys have chimed in on the harsh remarks about aosp,its a bummer you can't get this going, I am about due to try a new rom, there hasn't been anything new and exciting to try for a while

    Not sure what makes you think anyone in the "AOSP camp" forced anything. It is XDA's policy for posting at XDA. But then, very few follow the TOS of forums anyway.

    If anyone with development experience spent a bit of time in IRC, you could probably get help, that's where pretty much all the dev's for Android meet up and share.

    Of course, saying please and thank you go a long way, rather than complaints and rude remarks about people you don't even know.

    If you really want to flash aosp stop trying to use clockwork mod and rom manager. Download the zip and use xionia. Either the .4 or .6 work great and and will flash all the roms for the V.

    That's what I'm gonna try tonight. My terminal emulator isn't working right, so I can't flash xionia with it. I just gotta figure out adb.

    just letting everyone know, i flashed this rom on my optimus v, along with gapps, the sprint-to-ov.zip in the zefie port thread for optimus v, and the optimus v key swap in the xionia kernel thread and i was surprised to find that my mms works!
    Found this post by someone in optimus s ath3nos cm7 thread.
    But if it does work then the question is why would it work with that and not zefie's?

    That''s strange, have you tried it out yourself? If it does work, then the missing VM mms stuff must be built into the rom already. All the Sprint-to-ov zip does is:
    • Change the mms app to the VM one.
    • Fixes the IP address and port to send mms'es.
    • Fixes the build.prop.
    • Fixes the labeling of the network to "Virgin Mobile"
    • Swaps the home and menu keys to match the VM based kernels.


    This does not seem to be enough for Zefei's rom. Not sure why it would work on a different S rom.

    I flashed it today and I haven't found anything wrong with it yet, although I haven't tried Bluetooth since I don't use it. Also everything from CyanogenMod is updated and includes more settings. Even the camera works, auto focus and zoom.
