    Working:
    Everything i believe

    Not Working:
    You tell me

    Standard CYA (cover your ***) disclaimer applies:
    I am not responsible for your device exploding, not working or anything otherwise that you may have done to achieve such results. If something isnt working, you probably did something wrong

    Make a nandroid backup, a clean wipe is recommended, but i have tested flashing over an existing ARQ install with no adverse effects. Flash from recovery.

    want more internal space? use the built in Link2SD, alternatively if you have an ext partition and want to move the dalvik cache open terminal and type: dalvik2ext reboot only required if you want free space to update. to use terminal open irssi connectbot skip through the tutorial and in the dropdown box select local and hit enter.

    If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions i'll be happy to address them if you arent a jerk about it. If you are... have fun with that.

    If something is wrong i cant fix it unless you tell me, so let her rip.

    In order to use the Apps2SD from Link2SD you need to parition your sdcard. Find a guide, we arent covering that here. Hint: use recovery. backup your sdcard first.

    Depending on reception, slider rom may come soon.

    My name is jcole20 and I approve of this rom :P

    Edit: I wanna make a small note here:

    AmazingLarry is a member of Team AndroidArea51, and a very experienced developer. This is his personal rom (all his own work outside of his short list of credits) seperate from any work he does for Team Area51. And I've used this rom and think it's awesome. Larry is more knowledgeable than myself when it comes to developing and you all should definitely give it a shot. Don't get me wrong I'm Team AndroidArea51 myself, but it's taken a lot of work to give the Q users this much of a choice in roms. Enjoy this rom and definitely try it out .

    Absolutely Amazing rom!
    Thoughts after installing: This is an awesome rom! Period, anyone who wants to try something other than the default should have a look at this!

    No reason to fret porting these q roms over to the slider is very easy. Viable ports will come I'm sure. In the meantime you could always work on it yourself... id start with the kernel that's the big issue with porting. Check adb shell and the features of the phone like keymapping and wake/sleep if u test.

    One thing I had noticed, and this may just be user error: After installing the rom, my wifi connection at home would drop after the phone idling. I adjusted my screen shut off timer to 10 minutes and that seemed to remedy the issue somewhat. I know with the stock rom I had before I had to adjust some setting to keep the wifi from timing out even when the phone went to sleep. Is there such an option in this rom? Was nosing around with the rom for a few hours the other day and couldn't find anything.

    How do you change the lockscreen font? Does it involve editing a file in framework-res.apk?

    No, it's a font file. You can easily replace it.

    Just replace /system/fonts/Clockopia.ttf with one of your choice, be sure to set permissions as r-w-r-r or from adb or terminal: chmod 644 /system/fonts/Clockopia.ttf

    Personal thank you to JCole and AmazingLarry. Never thought I'd have options when it came to the Optimus Q. For a long time I considered selling it because I hated the stock rom. Anyway thanks guys!

    Thank you... larry and I are in regular contact. Just trying to come up with ideas now. Kinda running out of ideas of stuff to improve performance. Arq v1.3 has everything I know to implement in it lol. And engdroid is awesome... lol its time to start updating the os itself.

    On a fresh clean install when I go to set install location in link2sd I get failed, [1] killed /system/bin/sh /...
    Any idea as to what could be wrong there?

    Also, with link2sd, I have it set to autolink and everytime I install an app abd it links it I have to reboot before opening the app or it fcs every time. Is this normal?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Is there a possibility that this has been ported to the Slider on VM yet or is being worked on?

    You know.. it will kill ADB but you can just replace the boot.img from this rom with the boot.img of a slider rom and it should run for you...

    Really? Thank you, I'm gonna try this out after I make a backup, I don't really use ADB anyway since my laptop is done for. But when you say it kills ADB, what exactly gets effected by that? I just hope I still have root and can revert if anything goes wrong at all, root is my biggest concern.
