    hello, noobie here. my ROM manager is having a problem when i try to access the list of ROMs. I keep getting this... "error occured while downloading developer list" does anyone know how to fix this or how i can flash the ROM manually using CWM? I know how to flash a .zip but i dont know what the gapps .zip is for and dont know how i flash the .img file. thanks for any help

    gapps file is for the google apps like maps, gmail, etc, usually flashed after flashing a new rom in recovery mode. If you are rooted, and have followed the Dropbox pictures several pages back in this thread on how to use Rom Manager, the "Error occured while downloading developer list" is because Rom Manager isn't finalized yet for our LG Optimus V, give it some time

    Optimus V CWM recovery didn't back up my ext3 partition, it skipped it.
    Anyone else experience that?

    The most obvious reason would be that you don't have one, but I'm not sure whether or not you've set one up. If you have, I don't know why that message would appear. But I always get that message because I haven't made an ext3 partition.

    mine said that. i ignored it.

    a day later the time came to see if that restore file would actually work or if that message meant it was corrupted.

    turns out it worked fine.

    that message must be becuase you didnt set up a ext3 partition (like a partition on the SD for apps) becuase i didnt have that either

    "Optimus V" IS NOW AN OPTION UNDER Flash ClockworkMod Recovery!!1!
    Our phone now has OFFICIAL FULL Rom Manager support.
    I just flashed the latest recovery from rom manager.

    Edit: The recovery button mapping is changed. I believe camera is enter. Volume is up/down and back is back. Any other button seems to hide the menu.

    Is there any particular advantage to using the newer version of CWM? I'm assuming you need it for ROM Manager?

    lol thats not what everyone thinks tbh. Though I've been wanting rom manager support since I got this phone. Anyway it's a step closer to getting possible official CM support someday when it does happen.

    I use ext 3 with mine and I got the error. there is no way it actually backed it up with how fast it went by to the md5 check

    I read somewhere that free users cannot download roms on weekends. only weekdays.

    premium users get access to the roms anytime.

    No problem. The reason nothing is there I think is that possibly (correct me if I'm wrong) is that aosp has to resubmit the rom to clockwork to put on the network to the optimus v and take it off the optimus one. Im only assuming.

    I found this Dropbox - Photos - Simplify your life and now i can download using rom manger.

    Update
    If I follow the pic above, once the download is complete and the phone will not reboot into recovery mode to flash the rom. If install recovery as optimus v then the recovery will work but the rom download will not install.

    I know this is sort of off topic but is premium required to flash the official CyanogenMod ROMs for supported devices during the weekend?

    Do the same people that port also to the OV also make ROM manager? I'm all for supporting the dev but the app only made things more difficult IMO. Hopefully it will still get uploaded somewhere for people to download...
