    But isn't and won't be. Better off going to a rom that is still actively being developed. People say they won't switch to backside (IHO) because it isn't as stable yet...without people using it Jerry and Blarf will have a hard time getting it completely stable.
    And actually IHO has regular updates being pulled from CM7 & other kernel fixes by others, way better than just 1 or 2 people working on a ROM.

    Does ROM Manager work for installing custom recovery yet? I'm looking for an easy way to install custom recovery without using ADB if possible, TIA

    I actually used it to install Clockwork 3.something last night. I couldn't find AOSP in RomManager so I went ahead and installed IHO CM7 and have been playing around with it Since. I'm pretty happy so far

    Why can't I receive MMS? I think I can send them fine, but just noticed I can't open them when i receive them.

    running 0601. (which was the one that had the MMS fix built in right?) Using Handcent SMS if that makes a difference. I think i used to be able to receive them if I remember right. thanks.

    Check and see if 3g/mobile data is turned off bc for some reason even if ur on wifi it has to use 3g to get MMS.

    Try one of the IHO roms. aSOP has taken a break from developing for these phones. There is new builds being released atleast once a week.

    Ok, so I was reading this page http://forums.androidcentral.com/opt...ngerbread.html and... I was wondering if there was any way anyone could teach me to do this? I have already done a few things to my phone, but when I tried flashing a different rom, it didn't work and I had to restore. This is what I've done.

    Rooting

    Rooting is the process of gaining administrative rights to the phone so one can do customizations that aren't normally allowed. Root by itself doesn't do anything interesting, unless there's an app that needs it. The fancy stuff comes from custom ROMs. Just remember Virgin Mobile Activation only works on Froyo ROMs, so do it before going to Gingerbread. The easiest way to root nowadays is to use GingerBreak. It can be found here:

    [26.04.2011][v1.2] GingerBreak APK (root for GingerBread) - xda-developers

    Instruction Steps:

    1. Turn on USB Debugging (Settings - Applications - Development)
    2. Copy the GingerBreak.apk to a /sdcard dir, then using a 'file manager' app (search for one in Android Market) install it like a regular app.
    3. It can take up to 10 minutes, and will reboot automatically when complete (rooted), if attempt fails, reboot manually & run it again.


    Install custom recovery image

    The recovery image is an alternative bootup instead of normal Android Operating System. It allows low-level operations such as backup/restore a ROM, wipe partitions, and flash ROMs.

    4. Download and copy the recovery image VM670NH_recovery.img (works with new & old OV screens) onto your /sdcard.
    5. Install the Flash Image GUI app (save the .apk to a /sdcard directory, then open it with file manager). Run the app & select 'Recovery Image' option with the file above.


    Flash Custom ROM

    [ROM+Kernel] Inferior Human Organs unofficial CM7.1 (Gingerbread)

    6. Copy the unextracted ROM .zip that you wish to install to the /sdcard dir. Also if installing a CyanogenMod Gingerbread ROM, the unextracted gapps.zip also needs to be placed in the same dir to flash right after the ROM .zip.
    7. Boot into Clockworkmod recovery mode (From powered off state, hold vol-down, home, and power button until the LG logo appears).
    8. FIRST, BACKUP ORIGINAL ROM! Don't continue until this is successful. use vol-up/down, camera, & back keys to navigate in recovery.
    9. Wipe Data/Factory Reset, wipe cache partition. Under Advanced submenu, wipe dalvik-cache. Then uner Mounts & Storage submenu, format all partitions EXCEPT /sdcard.
    10. Install the custom ROM.zip from sdcard and gapps.zip too if going to a CyanogenMod ROM
    11. Reboot and enjoy the new ROM, the first boot takes longer than usual, also some problems may disappear after rebooting.


    But after I did all that, it blue screened me, which I guess I knew would happen since it said that the installation of the zip file from sd wasn't successful, regardless of how many different times I tried to do it. Is there something I did wrong? And from this point, would it be difficult to put Gingerbread on my LG Optimus V?

    This is one hell of a bump of an old thread. AOSP ROM is dead. Get over it.
    This thread is a much more up to date thread with more information

    This thread is closed, since the ROM is no longer being maintained/supported by the developer.
