    Hey! I finally figured out what to do for my phone. And I can easily send you in the right direction for yours if you want to root and flash a new ROM.

    I used a simple root tool called Unlock Root. You have to download it to your comp, enable debugging mode on your phone and hook it up to your comp. It's as simple as clicking on "unlock" and follow the prompts after that. After that, I don't know if the Superuser app automatically installs to your phone or not, so check your apps list and install it if it's not there. You then need Clockworkmod Recovery by getting ROM Manager and select LG Sol/ LG E739 MyTouch. ALWAYS back up your phone before you change anything. That was my first mistake. Then go to this link CyanogenMod Mirror Network - Powered by TDRevolution and get the latest ROM version from CyanogenMod's site. Also get this kernel http://db.tt/lswDa3ZJ . You'll still need your phone hooked up to your comp cause you need to transfer the files to an easy to remember folder like "downloads". GO to Install Rom from SD card and go to the folder you put the file. Wipe Data/Cache , Cache and Dalvik Cache then continue from there. If you come to a road block, just do it over again. Stay in the recovery mode and flash the kernel file as well. You'll also need to flash the Google Apps kernel if there are any particular ones you want, which you can get from XDA Developers forum on the E-739 Cm7 for LG MyTouch E739 - xda-developers. Also, if there are any apps on your phone that you'd like back after you flash this ROM, I suggest you get MyBackup Root for your phone before you flash anything, and back-up your apps. I also use Rom Toolbox for backing up things and a few other reasons.

    Just remember: SAVE SAVE SAVE!! Once you start playing around with CW Recovery and the new ROM, you'll love your phone! And keep up with XDA Developers site as they always come up with something new to try, or they cover some of the bugs that you may come across. Also, Keep up with CM's site as there may be a new build to flash. I'm not expert, I just follow the directions from the XDA site and do research. And so far so good. Enjoy!

    Go to your Google Dashboard...or just go to the Android Market on your comp..it's now called Google Play, which is why it's not on your phone. Google taking it over caused many phones to lose the app.

    correction...look in your apps for "Play Store". Thats the market app. Just found it on my husband's phone. If that doesn't work then use your comp and DL the app to your phone from there.

    I am loving cyanogenmod's 7.2 RC1. With over 200 apps on my phone, it is now lightning fast. The only bug I have found so far in the forward facing camera saves images and video upside down, but I believe the devs are workin to fix that.
    Thanks cyanogenmod!

    Edit : I followed the instructions in this video & had no difficulties.
    Pls note that the LG E739 does NOT have an internal SD memory, so when the video says to remove your SD card, you need to leave the SD card in, otherwise you will not be able to transfer the required files to your phone.

    What do you mean it doesn't have internal memory? All phones do.

    It has internal memory, but it does not have internal SD memory.

    If you don't believe me, then unmount & remove your SD card, connect your USB cable to the phone.
    You will notice that you cannot select USB Connected.
    This is because there is no SD internal memory.

    CM7, just curious, is the battery uber sucky? i have to charge everyday with cm7. I think my main question is, is there a updated radio or something? And does anyone know if Darktremorz a2sd works on this phone?

    Thanks~


    (is there any other roms too besides cm7 and the miui, or any version of cm6 that would work? cm6 sooo much faster imo )
    Oh and a smartass kernel?

    i installed cm7 on my e739 and it stayed at the cm7 boot loading screen. i tried to hard boot it by holding the two volume keys and the power button and now it says "S/W Upgrade Please wait while upgrading..." did i just brick my device?

    You don't need a kernel. It's included.

    If you flashed a different kernel as well as the ROM that would explain your boot problems.

    Well I know there are others out there that have to and you wouldn't believe it but if you have the a usb and data cable along with the LG software updater Yes you can unbrick your phone! I keep bricking the LGE739, however I think it is because we just have a bad rom...

    Thank you so much for posting this video here!! It worked on my lgE739!! Last time I tried I didn't do a factory reset or take out this sim card and it just stayed on the boot screen. Cyanogenmod look amazing, thanks!

    Hey Leolawliet, I'm so excited about the updated rom you created for the lg e739. The problem I'm having is when i click on the link, I'm told i don't have permission to enter, even when i try to register for the cyanogen forums. Do you have the zio elsewhere so i can download it or how do you know how i can go about getting permissions? Thanks for your help. :-)

    I'll get you the link, sorry the thread is a bit cluttered up.

    These are my custom roms for LG myTouch 4G:

    PenberRom1: https://m.box.com/view_shared/m3pe1erl5ij07zol13p1

    PenberRom2: http://d-h.st/4FY

    I also made this Aroma Installer package with some useful apps (ICS only for some of the apps)

    PenberRom2 addons: http://d-h.st/0QU

    Just so you know, PR2 has gapps included, PR1 doesn't.
