    Ok, so I have done that several times now still with no luck. I have tried Harmonia, the IHO, and any others I can find. Still same problem. Each time it reboots directly back to IHO Recovery. I have the screen app (idk the name), where I can see my phone screen on my desktop so I could record my steps in realtime if it would help and then send them to whomever or post to youtube and then post the link. I really need to sort this out if possible. Thanks ahead of time.

    Jasey its really not that hard. The reason none of your installations work is because of either of two. 1 you messed up your phone by not rooting properly ...and perhaps you installed an older iho custom recovery (wont play nice on newer optimi).... or 2 you're not following instructions at all.

    Give us more detail of what you're doing. What you did to your phone before it "broke " . Did you just buy it? Did you install any updates from VM? Radio update?

    OK I will try to explain this the best I can

    1) Bought Phone (Virgin Mobile) Optimus V (Hitachi Screen)
    2) Rooted using Gingerbreak
    3) Liked everything except that even after partitioning my SD card and using Titanium Backup to move all the apps I could to the SD Card, I still got low memory warnings and could not respond to SMS / GVoice SMS.
    4) *Failed to read first*
    5) Factory Default Reset the phone. This caused the following.
    a) Black screen (but as far as I know booting to CWM Recovery flashed via ROM Manager)
    b) Only other thing I could do is get into Download / Emergency Mode
    6) Downloaded Files and worked my way through The Truth About ROM Manager - Android Forums and with droid@Screen I was able to flash IHO v4.0.1.4.3 and actually see the Recovery on the phone screen.
    7) Flashed new ROM
    a) Downloaded BACKside-IHO-VM670-95922012
    b) put on SD Card
    c) Using IHO Recovery
    1) Wipe Cache Partition
    2) format /boot, cache, data and system
    3) Wipe Dalvic Cache
    4) Install BACKside .zip
    5) Reboot system
    Boots back into recovery
    8) Repeat step 7 2x more per ROM x 4 ROMs (the aforementioned BACKside, Harmonia 1.8, Harmonia 2.07 (both OV) and ICSandwich v4

    You need to flash the xionnia recovery that has fix bootloop.
    I will attach it below. In recovery flash the zip and reboot into recovery.
    Then use the fix bootloop function.
    Then you can flash the IHO recovery and install your rom.

    As you are well away stay the hell away from rom manager. It worthless for our phone.

    Thanks! I'm giving it a try now. OK, so it flashed, I rebooted into Recovery. It says: Android Recovery. ... then when it's done. It reboots, and the LG screen stays on indefinitely. I left it for half an hour. No Glory

    Thanks so much for this ROM, unknownartist! My new favorite so far and I'm sticking with it for daily use. My wife loves it too. After I flashed mine, she begged me to ditch Backside and flash it on hers too. (She's a graphic designer, so you know, shiny things and all that. )

    Right now I have v3 and am curious about one minor thing...

    On a few apps and menus, occasionally the fonts or radio buttons on certain elements come out white on white, so sometimes you can't read what you're clicking. An immediate example off the top of my head is the app Pocket (aka Read it Later).

    Does anyone else have that issue?
    EDIT: Nevermind, I see now it's not just me.

    If so, is there a fix for it?...or is it fixed in v4 or being fixed in v5?

    I'm fine with v3 (using Go Launcher w/ ICS theme and tvall's kernel) and don't really feel like upgrading ATM, so I'll probably wait for v5, but if that white on white is fixed I'll go ahead an do v4.

    I put AOKP because Jerry was right, when I included CM Settings it made this a non-AOSP so I Kang'd it up
    Wouldn't it be cm7 then? Aokp is ice and completely different. Love the rom btw

    v5 is done. When I was uploading the files I went to boot on my phone and got stuck in a long boot, I will logcat it now and see what I can do to lower that time.

    A long boot?Like it took forever for it to make it to the system?Thats not so bad, although I've always noticed like a PC, these need to be rebooted every so often. I've been trying your roms out and its been nice. I can't get past the Bluetooth issues on ICS since I actually use mine. So your cm7 that looks like it works for me.
    I gotta say, version 3 to me was much smoother than 4. Are the pics on the front from v5 then? Because my v4 didn't look anything like that.

    Yeah, v4 was just a kernel and launcher fix. I reworked the insides alittle bit, and you can see in the screenshots so of the stuff I added.

    Appreciate all your hard work. Really like your ROM. My phone can't seem to run the ICS build, but that is fine. I really like the look and function of what you have created. I can't wait for v5!

    I honestly didn't think v4 was that great. If I could've found my zip for v3 I would've reflashed to v3. But I know thaunknownartist always has tricks up his sleeve and will give us an awesome ROM with v5 as he approaches perfecting this ROM.

    As always great work!

    yeah, somehow I lost my copy of v3 as well. v4 I've had some issues with. Im not sure if my bt is too confused from the ICS roms, but it took 5 tries to make it work on 4. an my wifi kept disconnecting during Pandora. from the screenshots, I'll be on v5 till ICS is beta.
