    Here is Zefie's CM7 with tweaks for the Optimus V. I will try to build whenever he has new changes or there are significant fixes in the CM7 source.



    Test Build 03012011
    Download Test Build 03012011
    (b68335ab32d2f6e10b304c46af8b651e update-cm-7-03012011-NIGHTLY-thunderc-virginmobile-Xionia-signed.zip)

    Test Build 03012011 Changes
    1) Synced to newest CM7 source, based on Android 2.3.3
    2) Removed FM app for now

    How to Install (Tested with GNM Recovery and Xionia CWMA):
    1) MAKE A NANDROID BACKUP (I'm not responsible if something happens and you have no backup)
    2) Flash Debug-FormatSYSTEM.zip
    3) Wipe Data/Cache
    4) Then flash the current NIGHTLY
    5) Then flash Google Apps (skip Google Account setup and launch Market later to finish setup)
    6) Reboot

    Upgrading from a previous nightly:
    1) Flash Debug-FormatSYSTEM.zip
    2) Wipe Cache/Dalvik Cache
    3) Then flash the current NIGHTLY
    4) Flash gapps to re-add Market
    5) Reboot
    6) If you have any issues, you can try to wipe data/cache and reboot

    ClockworkMod 3.0.0.6
    I have tested this using ClockworkMod Recovery posted with aospCMod at xda-developers. It works fine, just use the builtin format system instead of using the zip file.

    ROM is odexed. No need to deodex, as there is now a built in realtime theme changer.

    TIPS, TRICKS, AND FIXES:
    1) Voicemail - Go to Settings/Call Settings/Voicemail Settings and change "*86" to YOUR phone number. You can now hold 1 to check voicemail in the dialer. This will be fixed in a later version.
    2) Proximity Sensor - Go to Settings/Call Settings and check "Always use proximity" to fix proximity sensor during calls. This will hopefully be fixed in a later version.
    3) Electron Beam - One of my favorite Gingerbread additions, Open Settings/CyanogenMod Settings/Display and Check both Screen Animation boxes.
    4) Split SMS - Open Messaging, Push Menu button, Select Settings, Check "SMS split" and "Split counter" to auto-split messages over 160 characters.
    5) Battery Percentage - Go to Settings/CyanogenMod Settings/Interface/Status bar tweaks, you can check "Battery Percentage" to enable battery percentage in the status bar.

    CURRENT OPTIMUS V SPECIFIC ISSUES
    1) MMS Receiving is still not working. Sending should work, please test.

    icemank121 nice, thanks for this.

    small request can you add ro.sf.lcd_density = 160 to the build.prop in future builds. if not that is fine I can add it myself.

    160 is standard screen size but I like the screen smaller.

    Anyway will test it out. Thanks

    2) Flash Debug-FormatSYSTEM.zip
    Hi, can someone tell me the steps I need follow to flash it? I've never done it before and I can't find any tutorial. Thanks in advance.

    Just flash it like you would any zip, all it does it format the system partition so you have a clean slate to install.

    Is it really necessary to flash the gapps? Installation on aospCMod7 prompted the same step but I omitted it and didn't have any problems with any Google app. Market automatically updated itself after a few downloads from the app.

    Great thread! Everything went fine during installation. However, I couldn't get past slide keyboard... Are the linked gapps the one from this post? Has anyone gotten passed this yet?

    Hit back and skip setup of Google account, that'll get you past it. Once thats done open Market and it will give you the option again to setup Account but it will work. Its a bug in the current gapps

    Skip that step. It will prompt you the same when you use your market.

    If you don't flash Gapps, there won't be a Market app on the device.

    I got "installation aborted".

    "Amend scripting (update-script) is no longer supported.
    Amend scripting was deprecated by Google in Android 1.5.
    It was necessary to remove it when upgrading to the ClockWorkMod 3.0 Gingerbread based recovery.
    Please switch to Edify scipting (update-script and update-binary) to create working update zip packages.
    Installation aborted."

    I'm still going to go follow the rest of the procedure. Is it really, really necessary to flash this?

    Update: So far it's been about three minutes stuck at "Installing update..." Is this okay?

    Update 2: It finally finished. I flashed gapps and rebooted. Now it's been about seven minutes stuck at the LG bootup logo. What's wrong?

    Update 3: Okay. I had to reflash everything. I'm at the Splash Cyanogen screen. Now it's stuck.

    Thank you, it worked! Overall this is a very smooth mod, looks like it improved Wifi performance for me.

    I got it running. Looks great, and thank you, but 2 issues:

    1. Leveler apps go haywire when turned horizontally.
    2. I get "Failed to move application" errors when moving apps to SD.
    They seem to be moved with multiple attempts, so far.

    This is a great Rom, but I only have one issue. When I try to listen to music from my headphones (and I've tried many, good headphones), the sound is extremely tinny and poor. There is definitely a difference compared to the stock Rom and the 2.2 custom Roms. This seems to be an issue with all of the Gingerbread Roms. Any ideas?

    I know zefie has put alot of work into the audio for CM7 so far, and I'm sure it will get better. Unfortunately these things do take time, but I'm sure it will stabilize over time. Gingerbread has only been on this device for a week, trial and error, and figuring out exactly what is causing issues like this does take time.

    True that. Either way, the Rom is excellent!

    I'm running into a show-stopping problem with this related to WiFi. SSIDs are available in WiFi settings, and I can force it to attempt to connect. Authentication fails, and after a couple of tries, the SSID is considered "disabled". Reverting back to stock fixes this, which leads me to believe the problem is definitely ROM related.

    Also, after doing a Titanium Backup restore and then rebooting, the phone process FCs non-stop. I'm not sure if this problem is related to the ROM or the fact that it's a different phone, though.

    Anyway, thanks for all the hard work. If I can provide any more information to help you solve this problem, please let me know.

    EDIT: Disregard this, please. I'm an ******* and a moron. I've been attempting the wrong password.

    So far this has a lot more memory than aospCMod. I had about 60MB free after all my apps installed. Here I have about 90MB. And I'm in the process of moving most to SD! I hope battery is okay here. AospCMod was pretty hungry.

    As a note, moving apps results in the "Failed to move app" error. But after a second attempt it goes through. It didn't have any adverse effects last this happened. Of course, the whole disappearing apps after reboot was because I flashed another rom without wiping..
