    Lol... why does rom manager manage to make its way into every thread.
    It is the "easy" way of doing things root in the Android world. Of course. easy doesn't equate to working...

    Just flashed the radio update with no problems. Xionia Recovery FTW. I have decided to stick with xionia since IHO and BobZhome's recovery doesn't work with updating PRL from my experience. Seems to be the champ of them all IMO (don't hurt me)

    Thanks a bunch LeslieAnn for giving me something to do on my Monday night after work.
    AND OMG is it just me or did my phone become SHINIER right after I updated the radio..?

    SHINY!

    People may think it to be dumb to go back to the Touch Recovery, but I did. It works well, have new had a problem and besides the camera button on my V is kind of weird.
    I had a similar problem with my camera button today when my OV took a good fall. Noticed later when trying to reach recovery menu with hardware buttons that the camera button was stuck halfway down. I got curious and broke out my electronics tools a couple screws and some prying at the metal casting later, the button freed itself up. After putting the battery cover back on the button got stuck again. So, I broke out the dremel and shaved some of the plastic off. The button works fine again. Phone is not as shiny anymore though. As always this is an at your own risk procedure.

    I just had an interesting little episode that I thought might be worth sharing. I decided to flash "Amphetamines" onto my phone. It flashed ok, but upon reboot into OS I had no signal whatsoever. The radio was completely unresponsive. Wouldn't even toggle into Airplane mode. Had to do a restore to get it working again. So, unless you like having to restore for no good reason, might wanna avoid Amphetamines after flashing the radio update.

    Strange.
    Could have been a fluke, hard to say.
    I can't imagine that of the 100+ people who downloaded this, that you are the only one running that.

    At least it's nothing permanent or difficult to fix.

    I'm really new to the Optimus V tweaking, but I tried amphetamines--twice. Running bobzhome on my newer phone, I lost bluetooth connectivity after amph. Restored and all was good. Flashed amph again and BT seemed ok but lost phone connectivity (radio, I assume). Restored and all is good. I haven't attempted radio upgrade although with the CWM 4.xxx version I think it may work. Will wait for more reports.

    Thanks to everyone, esp LeslieAnn for helping with the Optimus V.

    A good read

    I'm not sure that my phone is entering emergency mode while trying that combination, all I get is the same LG logo that I have had since I bricked my phone. Also, where would I be able to find the zv8 firmware? Thanks for your help.

    I flashed this yesterday and updated my PRL to the latest from Sprint. I do get better reception and service in my area, although it was not really lacking before. I live insanely close to the Sprint HQ.

    I updated to 60685 PRL found .

    I followed to update my PRL.

    To flash the PRL, I had to switch back to CWM Recovery from AOSP(Xionia will work as well). It is old but I have it on my sdcard from the last time I updated my PRL.

    To install the radio, I simply flashed back to IHO Recovery which stays on my phone as normal. It took a whole 15 minutes to do this all with not a single hiccup.

    Thanks to all the Devs making this happen. I am currently running latest Backside/V9 Radio/60685 PRL like a beast.

    Go to this page for the guide
    Go to for the zv8 or other stock cab files
    One thing I forgot to mention is that you will sometimes have to go into recovery to erase data. To do so just power off. Then hold the home and volume down keys then press the power button you'll go into stock recovery. hit data factory reset.

    There is no need to even download and flash it anyways, the script is already included in IHO builds.

    If this is in reply to my issue, a "simple reboot" did nothing to bring back the radio. Several reboots did nothing.

    LeslieAnn: Perhaps the order in which they're flashed makes some difference. Amphetamines before radio is ok, but Amph after radio = wonky? Who knows. Seemed worth mentioning.

    According to JerryScript in the Amph thread: "Some of this is already built into IHO, I believe in the system.prop file. I'll look into it later, thanks for posting!"

    If there's only "some of" the scripts already built-in, it stands to reason that "some" of it may not be and that there's a possibility that it may provide some added benefits.

    In any case you can run the commands without even flashing the script anyways, which tells me that the script is not needed for IHO ROMs.

    I want to share my experience with the new radio. At work, my signal was constantly at -120dbm. After the radio update, my phone is at -98dbm and I can finally receive calls! So, it definitely helped me. Thanks Leslieann.

    SMS/MMS is down for VM at the moment. There is another thread about it. Nothing to do with the radio update. I called VM and there is a message about it and they are working on it.

    If you flashed the radio and you are not sending/receiving texts that service is down right now, call VM and you hear a message about how they are working on it.
