    A. Rom manager black screens newer phones because it installs an incompatible recovery.
    B. The roms listed in it for the OV are not only old, and will black screen a newer OV, but were NOT put there by the rom developers. In other words, anyone can put a rom on there regardless if they made it or not. Loaded with spyware, or not.

    If you read and research, yes, it can be used relatively safely, but most people who use it are looking for an easy way so they don't have to read about it.

    There are PLENTY of horror stories about that program, especially with the OV.
    And since you aren't the one having to clean up that mess every time, please don't go telling people that it works fine when in fact it clearly does not.

    if they were smart and did the research they wouldn't jack up there phone. its common sense download your roms from the creators. and use rom manager to flash them. i say rom manager is fine because you have to use it right most of the people who mess up their phones with it just flash and go. when you test out a new app like rom manager make a back up and test it out,(and i have the new version of the optimus,) so you know what the problems are. and by now any one with an optimus should know what and what not to do with rom manager.

    For the new people listen to people who have done alot with android and DO RESEARCH... extensively on multiple sites. and i wasn't trying to upset leslieAnn. this thread is very good, and is one of the reason i tried rom manager just to try and work it on the lg optimus. if you read the the thread and follow the basics of roms and rom manager then you'll never have a problem.

    Thats right. By itself ROM Manager is good concept and probably created well. It is possible that the execution is what is giving it the bad name. I have not used it or seen it, so I cannot be sure.

    my Apology.
    The problem with this is, people who are going to use ROM Manager don't do their research. They are usually looking for quick, easy, one click method and don't know anything about Android in general, let alone their particular device. Once they get root (usually by a one click method) they are going to look for another one click method to install a recovery and flash a rom. ROM Manager will not install the correct recovery for the V and the roms listed for the V are old, out dated and posted by the developers. Please stop advocating its use as more noobs will use it blindly resulting more soft bricks and requests for help.

    Yes, excellent information! I was wondering though, when I rooted my phone with gingerbreak.apk v1.2, it installed an app called superuser. Is that a rom manager? I cant seem to find anything that superuser does that is worth keeping it on my phone except bugging me every time an app wants permission for something

    All superuser does is give permission to apps. Say yes when those popups come up, it may be annoying, but the app is the way other apps ask for certain permission. Like on windows 7 when it asks "Do you want this program to make changes."

    Hi!

    I'm still using my now 3-year-old OV but it is getting slower (I guess the apps become more demanding?) even with the custom ROMs. Any advice on what to do to keep it at reasonable performance level? I don't really need frills, I'd rather have the fastest-possible running phone with some basic functionality and occasional app or game (the latter is optional). Really, I want the basic functionality to work without delays. Just recently I missed an incoming call even though I had the phone in my hands simply because I was listening to a podcast, and it took longer than the call length to pick it up - ridiculous!

    I just installed the recent Mirage ROM, before that I also had a cyanogen-based ROM, forgot which one. The new one seems to be working a little faster but still I wonder if there're settings I am not using or evil apps that need to be removed? I am using Link2SD too, and I even upgraded the SD card to class 6 (had class 4 before that). I gotta say I did not notice any difference, and people say that classes above 6 don't really improve when used for this purpose.

    Any advice on how to squeeze out the most speed/performace out of the old OV?

    I am also still running my 3 year old V with the MiRaGe Rom. Still running original battery and original sd card, if anything, my v has gotten faster and smoother runnin mirage.

    I have cpu set at 480 min and 806 max with interactive gov. I just keep it clean with Sd Maid and when ram gets below 50% i use Fast Reboot to give me a boost of ram.

    Both apps found in the playstore.

    Default Re: [GUIDE] 2012 Optimus V Reference Guide (Start here!)

    Most people are extremely confused about the class number.
    The class number is only the write speed designation. The higher the class number the faster the write speed. Not quality, or read speed.

    The best micro SD card for our V is the Sandisk class 4 micro SD card. It has a read speed of 40MB/s.
    Read speed is the most important for an android phone. The higher the read speed, the faster the SD card contents are read during bootup. The higher the read speed the faster apps that are on the SD card open up. The higher the read speed the better video on the SD card plays.

    You can get a Sandisk class 4 micro SD card from WalMart for anywhere from $12.00 on sale to $20.00 normal price.

    To make the MiRaGe smoother and faster install the entropy.zip using the BobZohme VM670NH_recovery.img or the ClockworkMod Touch Screen recovery.
    To make sure it installed properly look in: /system/etc/init.d
    You should see a file: 10entropy

    Go here: [Treak] entropy_n_rngd-tool
    You want the one for the MiRaGe ROM (don't worry about the build number).


    For better 3G connections go to /system/etc/sysctl.conf
    Add this:
    Code:
    # sysctl.conf file
    vm.overcommit_memory = 1
    vm.panic_on_oom = 0
    vm.oom_kill_allocating_task = 0
    vm.dirty_background_ratio = 90
    vm.dirty_background_bytes = 0
    net.ipv4.tcp_ecn=0
    net.ipv4.route.flush = 1
    net.ipv4.tcp_rfc1337 = 1
    net.ipv4.ip_no_pmtu_disc = 0
    net.ipv4.tcp_sack = 1
    net.ipv4.tcp_fack = 1
    net.ipv4.tcp_window_scaling = 1
    net.ipv4.tcp_timestamps = 1
    net.ipv4.tcp_rmem = 4096 39000 187000
    net.ipv4.tcp_wmem = 4096 39000 187000
    net.ipv4.tcp_mem = 187000 187000 187000
    net.ipv4.tcp_no_metrics_save = 1
    net.ipv4.tcp_moderate_rcvbuf = 1
    For faster GPS locks go to: /system/etc/gps.conf
    Delete everything in it and add this:
    Code:
    NTP_SERVER=us.pool.ntp.org
    XTRA_SERVER_1=http://xtra1.gpsonextra.net/xtra.bin
    XTRA_SERVER_2=http://xtra2.gpsonextra.net/xtra.bin
    XTRA_SERVER_3=http://xtra3.gpsonextra.net/xtra.bin
    DEFAULT_AGPS_ENABLE=TRUE
    DEFAULT_USER_PLANE=TRUE
    DEFAULT_SSL_ENABLE=FALSE
    INTERMEDIATE_POS=1
    REPORT_POSITION_USE_SUPL_REFLOC=1
    DEBUG_LEVEL=0
    ACCURACY_THRES=3000
    ENABLE_WIPER=1

    The 3g fix absolutely has helped, it connects right away, and now i almost always have 2 bars at home, before the fix ,i always only had 1 bar if it connected at all.

    Thanks, i wish i had known about this along time ago.
