EDIT: So is anyone else noticing when you get a text notification in the status bar, after the text animates out of the bar it leaves a white trail kinda like animation lag? Just wondering if it is just me

I don't know why I'm the only one with the problem of calls going straight to voicemail. I know it's not much help but I thought I'd say... I don't think it's a problem in the kernel. Just switched to Zakman's Jelly Alpha 7 and it works fine in that.

I was stating to write a long detailed explanation of the problems I was having flashing this ROM, replacing 85mb LatinIME with the 2mb LatinIME, flashing, blah blah blah, when i suddenly realized I forgot to disable signature verification in recovery. Now everything flashes with no problem and I have Gapps. If you're a ditz like me and having trouble flashing and getting Gapps, try disabling Signature Verification in recovery, then flash.

I'm switching back to my cold as ice ics rom , too many bugs for me i might switch back if u at least fix the play store and home key bugs.
It might be beacuse i dont have enough space on my sd card so ill probably get a new one. Aside from all the bugs , the rom is awsome.

That being said, I'm not sure what I'm going to do about the lack of space. If I swap out keyboards, it become a port rather than a build...which I don't like to do. I was thinking about changing partition sizes and removing space from data and giving it to system...but I'm afraid that others or even myself may brick the phone. I'll have to do some more research on the matter.
Right now I feel ICS was the end of the line for this phone.
Ideas and suggestion are welcomed...

Of course in the very least anyone wanting to use this rom has to have partitioned sd-ext space, but for newer roms that is practically needed anyways.
Let's use what are sd card was meant for (if possible).

I'm guessing you've thought of this, but I believe the differences between the two keyboards is languages removed. Is it possible to just remove the languages at a source level?
I also somewhat agree with you. In my experience, ICS runs "smooth enough" on this phone most of the time. Running Jellybean at this moment just feels...sluggish, slow, etc. Not at the fault of anyone trying to get it going,I just agree that it is just too much for this device.
Of course, that is to be taken with a huge grain of salt, I am just a user and not a developer.

fingers crossed that the browser is more functional in jb.
I'll bet i can find some stuff to remove from the build to reduce size a little...
now that i have a real internet connection I'll sync your source and poke at it. thanks for building and sharing.
interesting thing i never had happen before:
going from quattrimus ics to this, i wiped data, cache, and dalvik cache. the 4 apps stored on sd-ext all work with this (some old gingerbread quick settings app, sl4a, and Swype beta/Swype installer)
even Swype beta. before i always had to reinstall it after changing ROMs.
this time i only had to enable it in settings.
/edit/ i don't know about gapps, i only use them in secondary installs with multiRom so i can cherrypick apps out of /data downloaded from the market. then i don't get the battery drain and system resource reduction from the gapps on my nand install.

- it changes so much
I just want to say thanks Bob and it hit me pretty hard when I read your post about Ics being the end of the line. Then I thought hell ics is pretty damn awesome on this phone I pay 25 a month for and only paid 50 bucks brand new for the handset. I have confidence in you and this entire optimus community (the whole optimus line... p500, OS all of them). If there is someway or somehow I know you guys will be the ones to hack patch port or build it. I have the utmost respect to all of you guys as I'm sure most of this phones community does and even other phone communities do. No matter what happens just have fun

I initially thought of changing partition sizes because it works so well on Samsung devices. But they have a single kernel for normal boot and recovery, which makes it easy. For our phones, short of rewriting the atag table (which I don't believe is possible), it would require a matching recovery and rom kernel. Users are sure to screw that up. Heck, I would probably screw it up. So I discarded this idea.
I settled on the idea of bind-mounting /system/app to /sd-ext/sysapp as the best solution. Now, /system/app doesn't have a huge amount of stuff in it. But it has enough that if it weren't there, the rest of the system should fit. It happens to contain LatinIME, most of gapps, and the crucial SwagPapers from AOKP that was tossed out in my build to make extra space. So this would provide enough space to support a full "small" language set, a full LatinIME dictionary, and other stuff as well.
The biggest problem I see with /sd-ext/sysapp is flashing stuff in recovery. Install scripts are at risk of getting rather confused. For example, flashing a "normal" gapps will delete some files under /system/app. But those files won't be in /system/app when running under recovery. Thankfully, gapps is easy to repackage and users shouldn't be flashing a whole lot of stuff to a running system anyway. Certainly not stuff that plays with /system/app (with the already noted exception of gapps). And if one were inclined, one could make an init.d script that moves anything in /system/app to /sd-ext/app before doing the bind mount. That would only fix half of the issue, and I'm not sure if that is better or worse than doing nothing.
Oh yeah... and it would also, technically, be the first setup to actually require the sdcard to boot. But that's a small price to pay for jellybeans, don'tcha think?
Hope that is useful...
