    I noticed a lot of crap included so I opened up the zip with 7zip and deleted a bunch of junk out of the system/app/ folder which cut down the size of the zip by around 15 mb. I don't know where the ringtones are but you can probably go in and delete those too. There is also cm7 wallpaper apk in the system/app folder I removed and since they added that nexus style live wallpaper the livewallpaper.apk is larger too.
    Can the apps be removed in es file explorer? Can't I just delete the apk's?

    Anyone try Netflix on this ROM yet? If so does it have the green line or color shift issues?

    Haven't tried it, but that's usually causes by stagefright, which can be disabled.

    Anyone tried the tweaks mmarz and francisofranco created?
    Yeah, it doesn't work. It reports back tons of errors when run through gscript. If you place it inside /system/etc/init.d/ then the phone won't even boot.

    Netflix works just fine on this rom. No green bar.

    If you are going the route of doing it after you have installed the rom I would go one of two ways with it.
    1. If you don't know if it's safe to remove freeze it with TB or the like.
    2. If you know it is safe to remove it, like the live wallpaper apps, you can use a root app remover to get rid of them.

    System app remover, market app, has an "assist" option that highlights safe with green, questionable with yellow, and do not remove with red.
    I can check the assist list if you need help with a question regarding a certain app from what it says.

    Also through adb:

    Code:
    adb remount
    adb shell "rm /system/app/file.apk"

    You made the switch Jerry? From aosp to this rom

    I'm trying it out, just like I try out all the ROMs when I have the time.

    So far, it looks like this is a very good ROM. Hopefully someone will build it from source for the Optimus V. I've been trying to get my build environment set up in my spare time, but it's definitely a challenge getting the repos and everything set up right. It took ath3nos almost a month to figure it all out with help from alot of people including Blarfie.

    If we can get someone to build from the Optimus V options in the repo, we can concentrate on the build instead of the sprint-to-ov scripts.

    This is definitely the best or up with the better roms for this phone. I love Bumblebee but miss the gingerbread options. I replaced the launcher with LauncherPro and I'm loving this.

    There actually is someone working on trying to compile this directly for the V; scroll through a few pages on the S thread for this rom and you should see at least some of the comments. Not sure how the progress is on the matter but Blarf has been helping to sort it as well. Maybe soon, maybe not but it's being done never the less

    Installed this rom and I love it. Quad is faster with this then aospCMod with the same apps installed. Great Job. Keep up the good work

    Looks like the green bar on the edge of pictures taken with the camera zoomed only occur on even number zoom settings, 2x & 4x. If this is true, it will probably be an easy code fix.

    So I am trying this ROM, and I have to say it works pretty nicely. I like the added customization and options. The overall performance is worse than my Harmonia (Froyo), though. I wiped everything and followed the instructions. I set CPU settings to: Interactive, Min: 245 MHz and Max: 806 MHz.

    Here's my short view, perhaps someone can get it working as smoothly as my Froyo Harmonia did? Or is lesser performance expected by upgrading our phones to GB?

    Pro's:
    - Nicely working GB
    - Netflix works without the green bar

    Con's:
    - Slower than Froyo Harmonia (small bursts of lag when scrolling through lots of items, more visible than with Harmonia)
    - Built-in junk eating up space (perhaps we can get a version with all this fluff left out?)

    Question's:
    Why doesn't LCD Density Changer work with this ROM? Is there another way I can change LCD Density here?

    I've used it all day yesterday, nothing to complain about for regular use. It easily streamed Pandora, with CoPilot Live running in the back, and played Angry Birds with out much lag. Overall very happy. The camera zoom works and over night battery drain is much better, went from 86% to 83% (WiFi and 3G off but not in airplane mode)

    If anyone is wondering I was using BumblBee for a few months prior to trying this. If all stays well and doesn't break this will be my ROM until an official GB release comes out (more than likely not)

    Well, LG has stated that all the phones in the optimus line will get a GB update, but as we saw with the intercept, it depends on when exactly VMU will release the update. It's likely that we won't see an official GB until a few months after sprint's optimus has it.

    I installed this when mmarz first posted it (btw....BIG thanks!). Then, I recently updated the "Sprint-to-OV_ath3nos_signed.zip (updated 7/12/2011)" and now the home button doesn't wake the phone up like pressing the power button does. If this is by design is there an app or way that will allow me to wake the phone up by using the home button again?

    TIA,

    Mike

    NM - it's now the menu button.

    i would recommend underclocking higher than 245. that's probably why you're experiencing lag. when you phone wakes up, it has to work that much harder to overclock.

    Is anyone having app launch issues from the application screen (showing all installed apps)? If I move it to a home screen and launch it it works normal.

    First Gingerbread ROM I have tried thanks for everything. Only problem I have run into, my contacts are tripled, but from a bit of research it might have to do with Gmail/Google itself not the ROM.
    In contacts press menu, then press display options, then check the box 'only contacts with phones'. This fix multiple contacts showing up for me.

    The LCD density is in the build.prop. I've almost read the sprint thread beginning to end. Ath3nos moved it to the build.prop for easy editing.
