    I would ask in the link2sd threads at xda.

    Otherwise, you can do like I do and use TitaniumBackup to manage your overflowing apps. Determine which ones you use less than once a week, and back them up, then uninstall them. Reinstall when necessary. This way, you keep a ton of space free, and it only takes about 30 seconds to install/restore any app.

    New build is up, removed bootloader from the reboot menu, switch to Blarf's v2 kernel to work with newer screens:

    BACKside-IHO-VM670-09162011.zip
    md5 checksum f9d4b272e93809da3fae17fe0f8d7322

    If you use the GreenMachineTheme, be sure to use the newer version:
    GreenMachineTheme-09162011.zip

    You will probably need to flash gapps, ymmv, only adds 1 1/2 minutes to the entire process.

    Coming soon, builds with newer proprietary blobs to test out, only or the adventurous!

    I just downloaded and flashed this... but even though it say it's fixed, my laptop still doesn't recognize the device. It's very frustrating.

    The LG sourced software that interacts with the phone's hardware. We use as much open source as possible, but some things require LG's software due to crappy or no open source versions being available. I'm hoping we may finally solve the mystery of the headset switch, and a few other issues may be helped as well.

    Is this the only change? If so ill stick to your last build lol.
    No major changes other than switching to Blarf's v2 kernel so those with new screens won't have problems.

    I only had trouble mounting my phone via USB once. I pulled the USB cable and plugged it back in and it showed up. It definitely SHOULD work, so keep trying.

    I mean, my computer knows that there's a device there, it just can't open it!
    Then my phone doesn't know it's connected to a laptop because when I click "tether" it says, "USB not plugged in"

    USB tethering is not the same as USB mass storage.

    Normally, when you plug in your phone, the notification dropdown menu will have an option to mount the sdcard as USB mass storage. If this doesn't occur, you can go into settings>>applications>>development>>USBdebugging check/uncheck it, and when you do, it should take you to the USB mass storage screen.

    If neither of the above works, and you have drivers installed that worked fine before you installed the ROM, then you may need to do a full wipe, reflash the ROM and gapps, then test before restoring anything, if it works, restore but DO NOT RESTORE ANY SYSTEM APPS OR DATA!

    Is there such a thing as a layman's version of the instructions. It seems the instructions were written for another hacker I get the concept, just don't know what program should be ran from where and how...

    3) Boot into recovery

    4) Make a backup (ALWAYS RECOMMENDED!)

    5) Wipe cache, and under advanced wipe dalvik cache

    6) Under mounts, format boot, system, data, and cache (only recommended when coming from a different ROM)


    It seems for the above you are running a program? Which program? How did you boot into recovery and did the same method make the other options above available options?



    7) Flash the BACKside ROM zip file

    8) Flash the gapps zip file

    9) [Optional] Flash the GreenMachine-UOT zip file for the Green Machine Theme


    How do you "flash" the files...do you mean execute them? And if they are zipped, do they need to be unzipped first? The instructions for downloading don't say anything about unzipping before putting on the SD card?

    I am willing to come across as totally stupid here to insure I know what I am doing before I attempt to brick my phone.

    Thanks..

    All those steps are done inside step 3, when you boot into the custom recovery. All the data wipes and rom flashing are done via menu select.

    Sorry for being a nuisance. I wanted to try and do what I could, so I found how to boot into recovery, but I don't have those options. Mine are:

    1. reboot system now
    2. apply sdcard:update.zip
    3. wipe data/factory reset
    4. wipe cache partition

    The first step to wipe the cache would be the 4th choice, but I don't have an advanced choice? Then of course I have none of the steps in 6?

    Sorry for being a pest..

    You don't have a custom reocovery installed, and you probably aren't rooted yet. Please read the stickies at the top of this forum. They will walk you through what we are talking about, and show you how to root, install a custom recovery, and flash a new rom.

    How you liking BACKside IHO? The more I'm using it the more I'm not wanting to go back to Froyo.
