    ROM
    bigsuperROM_os2sd

    Default [ROM+Kernel][CM-11.0][4.4.4][OS2SD/internal]bigsuperROM-thunderc-4.4.4

    My first ROM package.
    Spawned from TheJBC sources and including the infamous 3.0 kernel.
    Thanks to androidarmv6, thekraven, and skinbark for kitkat development.
    Thanks to JustArchi for build optimization patches. Their effects seriously ROCK. Using -Os thumb and -O3 everything else, will all of Archi's flags.
    gcc 4.7 ROM and gcc 4.7 kernel.

    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.
    source 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.

    Few reports of clock lag since 4.4.3 release. Mostly involving running on wifi.
    Quote Originally Posted by clocklag

    busted: camera still shot broken, mms-initiated video tears in preview but records ok.
    Currently working: I believe everything else. Post issues. With logcat/dmesg preferably.

    has hackerskeyboard built in 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.
    rebased off TheJBC. Then rebased off of androidarmv6/android_device_lge_p500 for upstream compatibility.

    Recovery:
    New experimental current TWRP for os2sd
    This is the only supported recovery for 6/23/2014 builds on out. Slightly different partition layout for os2sd, and swap partition support.


    Carrier Fixes:
    Sprint and Verizon. Want another? Got an apns-conf.xml, then post it and your other carrier info.

    Skinny Gapps:
    Skinny_4.4_Gapps_internal.zip from here

    to install the internal version fresh:
    use new TWRP recovery
    in recovery:
    format Internal system, Internal data and cache
    install rom zip, Sprint/Verizon fix if using it, and Skinny_4.4_Gapps_internal.zip. No need to mount anything, and in TWRP you can "add more zips" until the list is complete.

    uses 139Mb of /system on internal build. Room for Skinny gapps and carrier fix on zvj baseband. extra stuff won't fit 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 might require tweaking on an Optimus S. Old data says you have 162 Mb available though. New info, zvj, 158Mb.

    For extra storage space use
    toucanscrypt-unlimited-apps or cronmodint2extv2+ (original here) from rom folder (in testing yet.)

    Download link in second post.
    OS2SD builds, instructions in 3rd post.

    YOU MUST USE THIS RECOVERY for recovery issue support.

    Recovery may not flash properly to internal yet for the carrier fixes, working on it.

    mine takes around 5 minutes for first boot (!) but I've heard up to ten minutes. Hope you enjoy seeing that CM logo spin

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

    DON'T ENABLE ART
    IT WILL BOOTLOOP


    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.

    mine takes around 5 minutes for first boot (!) but I've heard up to ten minutes. Hope you enjoy seeing that CM logo spin

    downloads here.
    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. 2nd can be linux-swap. Partition in recovery.
    advise: whatever leftover for VFAT, 256-512MB swap, 512MB-768MB EXT4 for system, 1GB or more EXT4 for data (in that order. Those become /sdcard, /sd-ext or /swap, /system, and /data.)
    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.

    Use THIS RECOVERY ONLY, for now.

    Gapps:
    advise: Skinny_4.4_Gapps-new.zip for easy gapps. From here

    if you want a REAL gapps package...
    I made pa_gapps flashing facilitator for twrp/os2sd. Same download folder as the Skinny gapps.
    Go get current micro pa_gapps, don't touch the zip.
    flash pa_gapps_modular_micro*.zip right after the ROM.
    after flashing pa_gapps you flash the pa_facilitator.zip (it gets rid of armv7 keyboard libs and installs compatible play services framework.)
    if you want to use any bigger pa_gapps packages (and you can even install the 200+Mb Stock package on os2sd!) you'll have to follow the instructions for the pa_gapps remover zip TKruzze posted up to remove Google+ (or you'll have fc'ing nightmares) and don't let it install Chrome either (there's another text file needed on the card like the remover, TKruzze left instructions.)
    Remember, if you install Google Now (Search) go as quickly as possible into app drawer>Google settings>Search and Now>Voice>Hotword Detection and turn it off, then back up one submenu to Voice again and turn off all the checkboxes and set speech to off.
    You can install voice search and talkback from market (enable talkback in accessibility settings) for those functions without fc. (and voice search wrapper from xda if you want voice control over Search.)

    or just go the easy way on os2sd and use the Skinny_4.4_Gapps-new.zip which don't need a facilitator. But it's harder to get current Google Search that way since Play thinks we can't handle it.

    Carrier Fixes:
    Sprint and Verizon. Want another? Got an apns-conf.xml, then post it and your other carrier info.

    to install fresh from scratch:
    backup your sd card on a pc or you'll lose all your data.

    use new TWRP-multi
    in recovery:
    advanced > partition sd card
    set ext4 (or swap) size: at least 256 (MB)
    OS2SD system size: at least 512, up to 768
    OS2SD data size: from 512 to 1024 or more depending on how ridiculous you'd like your app storage space.
    swipe to partition, wait patiently as it'll take a while. Vibrates when done.

    mount menu
    format system, data and cache

    install, in this order:
    rom zip
    Sprint/Verizon fix if using it.
    gapps

    (Skinny_4.4_Gapps-new.zip is easiest. You don't need to mess with mounting anything. Or flash a pa_gapps and the pa_facilitator after.)
    TWRP lets you 'add more zips' in order until you're happy, before swiping the confirm slider.
    reboot.

    Fun thing to try:

    This hasn't crashed noticeably on me and seems to speed things up.
    Enough testers without obvious negative results and I'll incorporate it into the base ROM.
    Maybe with a backend for the functional, included automagically, CrossBreeder in it.
    Takes maybe 3MB of /system.

    It does stuff before the bootanimation so don't freak about the extended black screen booting up.

    use for internal thekraven's philz CWM recovery from the Sprint thread or one of thekraven's recoveries sprinkled through the other kit-kat threads in that forum.
    Or use skinbark's recovery from the sprint thread.
    archive folder here if you want older builds for some reason. NOTE: this will go away soon as I don't want to mix the new recovery/rom with old builds of either one.

    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.
