    ^ well, according to that setting mine was scanning for wireless access points every 20 seconds. i set it to every minute instead. so i'd expect it to at least help a bit... I might bump it even higher to 90 seconds.

    Can someone else let us know how much this helps with battery life? I'd like to do it but I don't want it to be a wasted effort if it only gets me a little more time
    Even if it only gets you a extra 30 minutes of battery its not really wasted effort.

    For you perhaps. I just don't think that an extra 30 minutes will help much. I may give it a go. I'm just trying to figure out if it'll be worth the trade off

    So despite having "Always use proximity" enabled in my call settings, it was still hit-n-miss on it actually working for me. Sometimes my screen would work after a call, sometimes it wouldn't.

    I found this post which mentioned changing a setting in build.prop and rebooting... this seems to have fixed the issue for me. Their post mentions "mot.proximity.delay" but my phone was actually "ro.lge.proximity.delay". I also didn't bother doing the adb pull/push as described, I just used the adb shell to check the setting with grep, used sed to change it, then a reboot...

    [root@ubuntu ~/droid/]: ./adb remount system
    remount succeeded
    [root@ubuntu ~/droid/]: ./adb shell
    # cp /system/build.prop /system/build.prop.bak <-- always make a backup
    # grep proximity.delay /system/build.prop <-- checking current proximity delay setting
    ro.lge.proximity.delay=100
    # sed -i 's/proximity.delay=100/proximity.delay=25/' /system/build.prop <-- changing it from 100 to 25
    # grep proximity.delay /system/build.prop <-- verifying change
    ro.lge.proximity.delay=25
    # reboot

    After phone reboots... call your voicemail, and test the setting by placing hand in front of screen, removing hand, repeat. Then go drink beer
    Hey man, I tried your fix, and it works, but it only works for a while. For some reason it will undo itself after a good several hours. The only way I fixed that is by rebooting the phone. I'm not sure what's going on here since the proximity sensor is only used when making a phone call. Perhaps it undoes itself when the phone gets plugged in? Maybe we can look into this some more. I will give you credit though for at least finding a solution to this problem. If anyone else is noticing this problem, chime in as well.

    I did the hack too and it worked...for a while.

    Another thing I noticed with this hack is that sometimes I try to test it out by calling voicemail, and it just dials 1 instead of the voicemail. Well, it seems that issue went away. I noticed that when I'm in the middle of a call and move my head away from the phone, if the screen is still off, I can place my thumb over the proximity sensor and move it away quickly and the screen will return. At first I thought this was an issue with SetCPU since I set it to run at 245 MHz when the screen is off, but when I disabled the "Screen Off" profile on SetCPU, the problem still persisted. I hope either Zefie or acemc03 can fix this issue soon. It gets annoying having to hit the power button to end the calls.

    Does anyone know if it's possible to get a boot sound on this rom? Also, where would the file go and what does it need to be named?

    I, after flashing this rom, have minimal sound coming from my speaker. By minimal I mean if I have it up full volume and I put my ear on it I can barely hear it. My headphone sound is working fine and this is the issue I have seen the most on this rom. I even tried flashing another rom and the issue still existed. Didn't happen till I flashed this one the first time. Does anybody know of a fix for this?

    I wish the 1st post in this thread would provide more detailed instructions. I spent a lot of time figuring out what "flash ..." means, etc. If the instructions were "dumbed down" to step-by-step, I think more people would benefit from this.

    NO NO NO

    Dumbing down the process is how come there has been so many people breaking the phone and returning it under false reasons.

    Google is your very best friend.
    Hell Even Bing seems to be knowledgeable in this regards.

    I'll agree with this. It was hard for me to figure out how to flash roms and recoveries, but I think since I had to research it I was more knowledgeable on what to do.

    agreed..even tho this is my VERY first time doing this..and even owning a android phone..i was able to follow the instructions and come out ok flashing 2 different roms...if you are unable to follow those instructions..you probably have no business doing it imo

    So I am having a new issue with my wifi connection, it won't connect, when I go into the wifi settings through the *#*#4636#*#* code and try to enable the wifi or look at settings my com.android.settings process crashes. Any ideas, I have over 200 apps installed, could that be the problem?

    I would make a nandroid backup and do a clean install and see if the problem still occurs on the fresh install. I've had a bunch of apps installed and after doing a new flash it ran much more smoothly. Now I just have to be conservative with installing apps which is tough.

    no

    And for me the tethering apps dont work either.

    Honestly I wouldnt worry about tethering. If it gets out of control Im sure VM will either raise the price of the plans or cancel the plans all together.

    I tried to flash this with clockworkmod 3.0.0.6 (I used the wipe data/cache menu entries before flashing). However, after rebooting all I see is an LG Logo (colored) and nothing else happens. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Edit (solved): As mentioned in the original install instructions, the CWM has a menu entry for actually formatting the system partition, I had not realized that. It can be found in the mount points menu.

    An app called "Wireless Tether for Root Users" in the Market works for me on Gingerbread with my Optimus V.

    After flashing this ROM the last time I lost my speaker. It still works I just have to put my ear to it on full volume to hear it. I recently came back to this ROM as I figured I had nothing to lose at this point lol. I had tried flashing a nandroid of stock just after rooting. Also tried flashing other ROMs and nothing fixed it. Figured I would ask again, for lack of any response, if anybody else has had this issue and what the fix was (if any). I noticed on the S version there was a fix introduced to fix a "speaker issue" but it didn't say what that was and couldn't find it in the thread. Hoping for some kind of answer or suggestion.

    Edit: It was suggested to me to go into the hidden menu and look at the sound settings there. I did this however was uncomfortable with making any changes due to lack of knowledge of what the settings should be.

    Try using the Optimus S rom you reference. See if that fixes the speaker issue. You have nothing to lose and you can always flash back. If that does fix the issue, ask the dev of that rom what he did to implement that fix.


    Yeah, those menus are somewhat scary. You may want to consider doing a warranty fix of the phone. This problem might not be related to the rom and might be an unrelated hardware issue.

    Yes, they are scary, although I figured when I went in I had nothing to lose. Once I looked at the options and how many there were for sound I knew I was in deep water without floaties. You were the one that suggested I look there so thanks again for that suggestion.

    I will head over there and try flashing that rom. I know it wont work for other things but as you mentioned maybe it will fix that issue. Thanks for this suggestion as I should have thought of it when I saw the fix listed in the changelog lol.

    EDIT: That didn't work. I'll just deal with no speaker for now. A family member wants one of these phones. Maybe I'll go buy a new one and sell this one to them "cheap" LOL they never answer their phone anyway so they don't need the speaker .
    I love the boot animation on the S version btw. Time to flash this one back to my phone.
