    ROM
    OV KitKat-JBC, 3.0 kernel

    Default [ROM+Kernel][CM-11.0][4.4.2][OS2SD/internal]OV-KitKat (JBC based)

    My first ROM package.
    Spawned from TheJBC sources and including the infamous 3.0 kernel.
    Thanks to androidarmv6, thekraven, and skinbark for kitkat development.
    I forgot the disclaimer... ROM flashing may bork your phone, anger your parents, or cause your service provider to drop you like the hot potato you are.
    Do it at your own risk.
    Seriously... if you don't know about adb and flashing, this is probably too experimental for you. Be warned.

    Another disclaimer: This is all experimental. These are my personal builds. I am being nice and sharing. Instabilities are to be expected...
    I would love to work on everyone's pet mods, it'd be fun, but I can't afford the time. Bummer. Suggest 'em anyway, preferably with links. Maybe I'll incorporate them.
    to init a repo from. Large amounts of androidarmv6 and TheJBC in there. This is a 'pure' Optimus V/Virgin Mobile build though, no fix .zip or source changes needed.
    Sprint fix:SprintFixCM-11.zip
    Verizon fix:Verizon_fix_CM-11.zip


    Still has clock lag... the statusbar clock sometimes refuses to refresh until data toggled, clock app opened, or system rebooted. The alarm runs off of the statusbar clock. The system clock works fine, and the lockscreen clock, and various app clocks.
    Currently working: I believe everything else. Post issues. With logcat/dmesg preferably.

    Current build
    cm-11-20140314-internal-thunderc-md5-2a32441003a627330593b25bacc0f215.zip

    No LatinIME and has hackerskeyboard built in instead to save space. no voice entry and the user dictionary doesn't add manually. sideload another keyboard if you want. LatinIME is in extras folder of zip if you want to be able to send the emojis for messaging. Remove LatinIME from zip if it doesn't fit on your Optimus S with gapps.

    rebased off TheJBC because it was wandering too far into defective CM commit land.

    TechVendetta has a TWRP for os2sd on here It's pretty and seems functional. it works on internal too, for roms and other zips that specify mtd/yaffs2 for mounting in the updater-script (like mine.)
    TechV's TWRP installs zips that don't specify where the mounts come from (like "mount /system" instead of "mount /dev/block/mtdblock5 /system") to the partitions that are currently mounted.
    use an archived recovery to flash other zips to internal.

    advise gapps from Sprint thread.

    to install fresh:
    use TWRP
    in recovery:
    format Internal system, Internal data and Internal cache
    install rom zip
    reboot, let it load up completely, then reboot into recovery
    install gapps zip.
    ( (is ) if you want.) Mount Internal system and Internal data before flashing or it may not stick.
    flash Sprint fix if using it. Mount Internal system and Internal data before flashing or it may not stick.
    reboot, sign into google account and let it complete sync (wifi preferred but 3g will work)
    reboot again before using play store... you can use it without rebooting but it doesn't settle in very fast.

    space on /system is tight, CrossBreeder won't fit previous to 2/20 release unless you delete some stuff off of /system (like /system/app/Browser.apk then install another or sideload it with the file manager or terminal or adb) and it probably won't fit on an Optimus S at all right now...
    Download link in second post.
    OS2SD builds, instructions in 3rd post.

    ROM
    OV KitKat-JBC, 3.0 kernel

    Default Re: [ROM+KERNEL][CM-11.0][4.4.2]KitKat for Optimus V

    Experimental/technically inclined users:
    the bleeding edge of LG**670 ROM technology.
    OS2SD (OperatingSystem2SD card) builds. Thanks to skinbark for the name and first releases, not to mention getting 4.4.2 to boot.
    Runs off of the SD card. Only boot is on internal storage. Awesome amounts of storage space. No link2whatever methods needed or feasible.
    extra bonus: mount usb storage in android or recovery mounts ext system, data, and cache for your linux file management pleasure. While running android.

    downloads
    required: big enough SD card 4Gb or more advised (class 2 or 4 according to koopakid08 and documented on xda.)
    first SD partition VFAT/FAT32
    second to fourth EXT4.
    advise 2Gb VFAT, 1Gb EXT4, 512Mb EXT4, 1Mb EXT4 in that order. Those become /sdcard, /data, /system, and /cache//edit: /cache is back on MTD and I will probably move /system over there once I stabilize a way to mount two MTD partitions together without aufs.
    expand /sdcard and/or /data as preferred if you use a bigger card. more space in /system? dunno why. doubt there's enough armv6 system apps to fill 512Mb.

    TechVendetta's TWRP may well handle all this. Try it and see... I can't test everything.
    or use cwm-sd-fakeflash.zip in the skinbark/thekraven cwm to flash OS2SD ROMs. Also use it to back up and restore OS2SD installs.

    Gapps:
    advise: pa_gapps-modular-mini-4.4.2-20140208-stripped-signed.zip from for zte blade.
    seems to work: from Sprint thread. anything else may be twtichy and/or require mounting system before flashing.

    Sprint fix:
    Verizon fix:Verizon_fix_CM-11.zip

    to install fresh:
    use TWRP
    in recovery:
    format OS2SD system, OS2SD data and Internal cache
    install rom zip
    reboot, mount OS2SD system (or system if the name changed after flashing the ROM), don't reboot,
    install pa gaps zip/skinny gapps sd zip.
    ( (is ) if you want.) Mount OS2SD system and OS2SD data before flashing or it may not stick.
    flash Sprint/Verizon fix if using it. Mount OS2SD system and OS2SD data before flashing or it may not stick.
    reboot, sign into google account and let it complete sync (wifi preferred but 3g will work)
    reboot again before using play store... you can use it without rebooting but it doesn't settle in very fast.

    use pa gapps or the skinny gapps sd version from skinbark's download page. Mount system before flashing pa gapps. Confusing I know.

    I loaded this today and can confirm that bluetooth works! I was able to pair, hear the phone audio and use voice commands. Nice job! Wifi also works in this build but the password is not retained after reboot. There was a fix in one of the other threads for that.

    I would like some advice. I had been playing with the os2sd build but it seems like attention is rightly being focused on getting all the basic phone functions working and having fewer builds. That makes good sense.

    I wonder if you could add your advice to the root posts concerning recommended partitioning and formatting for using your build. And advice on what linking to SD software you recommend/use. That way people just coming in could get all the info they need in the first few posts.

    Thank you for all the hard work you wonderful developers have/are putting into this!

    bluetooth still won't accept keypresses from my keyboard.
    my wifi password sticks... weird.
    I have never used link2sd methods of any kind except for /system and booting from sd experiments so can't advise on that.
    mount2sd looks good though.

    The home button and menu button switch, maybe a few status bar tweaks. I can't think of much else as I'm not a dev. I now have Thekraven's permission to use his rom as a base. So I'm going to try to learn to port.

    new build uploading.
    has the bluetooth fixes, swap enabled, and misc other updates I pulled down including speakerphone fix. good volume on that now.

    instead of opening/saving the APN for MMS, it now has a radio button to check under APNs once you get that open. then just press home or whatever.

    only the regular sd-ext.
    check the md5sum on the gapps to make sure it downloaded ok. it should work with some room to spare on an OV.

    /system memory isn't used for normal functions. it's where Gapps flashes, and mods like CrossBreeder meant to speed things up.
    the main two to watch are /data and /cache. /data will fill as apps are installed, and things like Play use /cache.
    they can be extended with stuff like mount2sd but I don't wanna research how to use the 2sd apps/scripts/etc.
