    No, no, sorry. What I meant was, what OS are you attempting to install the drivers in?

    Is this thread still alive ?

    The Link to gingerbreak is fail for now.

    I apologize for my noobishness, what's adb?
    also I have a stock ov v5 2.2.2
    thinking of using gingerbreak, but I found gingersnap, which involves a pc. (still debating)

    I want the hotspot widget to work. Is rooting enough or do I have to install a custom rom?

    (I've read about some who have had issues with lg drivers, screen issues (hitachi/novatek), home button not working....) So the minimum to get a hotspot would be nice


    Thanks all

    Try this link for ginger break. [App]GingerBreak APK Scroll down to bottom of first post and download v1.20 and it will work fine on your phone

    ADB = "Android Debug Bridge (ADB) comes bundled with the Android SDK. It is a command-line tool used to communicate with and control the device over a USB link from a computer. The tool comes bundled with the Android SDK and is commonly used for diagnosing problems with the device. Once you have ADB installed, you can use ADB to copy files to and from the device's internal memory, install apps, run commands, see logs and more."

    There are tethering apps available that only need root access so you can just root your phone to use tethering. Gingerbreak will easily get you rooted.

    L\I'm using Win7.

    Sorry for the delay but I wasn't home. And the damn phone keeps on freezing.
    I'm to the point of looking a way to bringing it back to "normal", it is really annoying, plus. (excuse my ignorance) I haven't found the benefit of rooting it

    I've tried the Over Clocking, Compcache and JIT. And the only difference I saw was the browser acting like crazy, and the market force closing

    Thanks

    Hey thanks again.

    I figured it out thanks to stickies, but there was an initial reboot I had to do from the stock recovery (after that the recovery boot [pwr +vol up+ home] loaded cm7) which I didn't see in the tutorial.

    I think I'm running green machine rom with an ics theme (not motivated to download ics rom but looked cool).

    And I have my tether. My next question is there a way to get the best 3g out of the phone? And is v mobile really throttling people after 2gb or is it just new accounts perhaps?

    Thanks you guys are awesome. PS I'm having trouble finding flash support. Could I already have it and not know?) lol doubt it...

    First: UNINSTALL ROM MANAGER

    Here's a link to a program called flash image gui. FlashImageGUI.apk Download and install it on your phone.

    Here's a link to a recovery that will support the Hitachi screen: VM670NH_recovery.img

    Here's how to install the new recovery:
    4. Download and copy the recovery image (works with new & old OV screens) onto your the root directory of your sdcard.
    5. Install the Flash Image GUI app (save the .apk to a /sdcard directory, then open it with file manager) Run the app & select 'Recovery Image' option with and direct it to the image file saved on your SD card

    Thanks so much. Real life saver!

    I can't run flash image gui because i am not rooted. But I want to flash the recovery image so I can use gingerbreak and not be afraid of bliacking my screen

    They are the posts at the top of the forum that the moderators think everyone should read. They are insanely useful, and I recommend anyone who wants to mod their phone read them thoroughly.
