    Hey, I reflashed v.5.0.2.0 through ROM Manager (the one with the messed up colors), and here's what I found:
    Pressing the power button makes the text disappear -- same problem on our version
    Pressing the search button acts like the back button
    Pressing the menu button acts as select
    Pressing the home button goes up (same as volume up button)
    However, repeatedly pressing the home button (it's unpredictable how many times) will give you "Back menu button enabled.", which then changes things, as follows:
    Power button acts as select
    Search button acts as select
    You can press home button again several times to get "Back menu button disabled.", and restore previous functionality.

    I think the issue with our beta version is that the 2 left most buttons have other functions, so it makes that whole back menu button thing more difficult and less predictable than in the P500 version.

    If somehow we can disable switching of the back menu button, I think we'll be alright.

    Ok I was able to verify your findings and gain a little more information while I was at it. If you press the menu button too many time it craps out too. But pressing the vol up and down buttons at the same time will turn the back button back on/off. I will let utkanos know what we found and see if he will fix it. (which seems likely).

    I've been getting occasional spontaneous restarts since I went back to Carlo ROM, and I've been thinking about upgrading using the official LG updater tool. Do you want me to hold off on that, until this recovery thing gets squared away?

    BTW, would flashing the old KDZ restore the old baseband?

    Its up to you but I might help to have a phone on the OBB still just to make sure there are no issues but honestly the way I look at it is we are all moving to the NBB eventually (especially if I can get a kernel for us) and the P500 version works for the old baseband even if it is ugly so really it doesn't matter ... plus everything seems to be independent of the baseband anyways as I can recreate all the same issues you have. Id say go for it. Besides I actually like the new stock rom one you gut it of all the AT&T crap.

    Do you know if flashing the v10e kdz restores the OBB?

    Just an update, Im on build8 of the CWM project, the button issue seems to be solved but the colors went to crap again. Hoping to have build9 by the end of the day and if it works I will upload it as beta_05 for mass consumption.

    See the first page it has been updated and there is a new file. We are offically out of beta and I'm calling it v1.0. Color works and the back button disable issue seems to be fixed. If you have any issue please let me know I will make sure they get fixed asap if it can be fixed.

    Yes, please. A flashable zip makes things much easier!

    Not sure if you can do a flashable zip for CWM. Once I have a few people test this version out for sure it will be pushed up to be included as offical in ROM Manager so we will be able to just use rom manger to flash it.

    How were the previous betas generated? There's no readme at utkanos' github, so I'm not sure how to test out the new recovery.

    I compiled them myself. Once you flash it, you should just test all the functions that you normally would use and if everything looks legit, I'll upstream it to RM.

    Yeah that is a definate a problem What baseband and OS are you starting from. Can you send a log file? Can anyone else verify this issue?

    likey to do an assert failure, not a problem with recovery. Either update the updater-script in the zip you're trying to flash with the proper name or remove the assert check.

    It has to do with the ROM you are trying to install. Some ROMs will need to be recooked in order for us to use them others will work just fine. Anything that specifically states in the code that it was developed for the P505 like the offical CM7 builds will likely break but I did have luck flashing perfect pesto to my phone (though the rom hung, probably a kernel issue. it did flash without error)

    How were the colors fixed? If i could find out what had to be done i could probably just build a p500 kernel with the color fix and we might be able to use it?
