    Is a rom for the LG Vortex of this being developed? It's the same thing as the Optimus but it's under Verizon Wireless.

    The LG Vortex? Sure do! I can be a tester if you would like.

    The Scott Pilgrim rom for the Optimus S works on the Vortex except there is no signal at all. It was being worked on but then it just suddenly halted with no reason given, then I found this rom, and the first post says that the other Optimus phones, even the Vortex, will follow through as well, but I didn't see any recent posts related to the Vortex so I thought I'd bring it up.

    @Bob: re recovery:
    testing now! thanks.

    edit:
    Nice work!
    I flashed the recovery, made a backup, wiped dalvik-cache, boot, cache, data, and system, installed harmonia from zip, used it to read the forum, rebooted into recovery, and successfully restored my backup.
    Works fine on my new-screen OV.
    I didn't try it on the old one, mostly because it now has a different partition map (optimus s has a different size for /system and possibly other partitions I don't remember) and the recovery probably wouldn't write the backup correctly on it. Maybe, anyway, and I didn't want my funky firmware to bork the recovery test.
    would you mind if I posted your recovery in the blackscreen thread, or do you consider it too experimental? It'd be nice to have something a little cleaner than the patched version I put up already, but I'd like your permission first.

    Thanks for asking!

    In the Wiki, under the optional files.

    Could you upload to the Wiki as well with a note like we have for the OV ROMs?

    I forgot that I have a github account now, so I guess I can do that.
    It should be up there, but AFAIK I'm the only one who's tested it out so far.

    edit: uploaded and edited. I didn't generate the SHA checksum, but put up an MD5.

    Could someone tell me what is the most stable variant and version of CM7.1 that works with GrooveIP. I am brand new to rooting, and at least for the time being anyway, don't care about the latest and greatest new features, just stability. Today I picked up a new Optimus V from Target ($99 by the way) and I am sure it isn't going to be long before I want to change the firmware. The only app I really care about working is GrooveIP, because I want to minimize the usage of my plan minutes. Secondary would be speed and battery life, and least important maybe tethering would be nice. I see that Backside has some problems with the GrooveIP app, according to the developers web site, so that firmware is definitely out for now.

    I'm using the BACKside ROM and I was wondering if anyone else had a problem with setting the custom lockscreen image? When I would try to set it I the proportion s would be off and the picture would get stretched.

  16. JerryScript's Avatar
    I believe your images needs to be 320x480 otherwise it will be stretched to fill the lockscreen.

    I think I phrased that badly, the tool that you use to select an area of the photo to use is square when it's supposed to be rectangular.
    I tried to use an image with your suggested resolution but that didn't help at all.

    Heya Jerry, just installed your latest and everything works fine other than Google Music. I was getting a FC every time I tried to open it. Had to delete Music and reinstall to get it to work, which unfortunately deleted all 14GB of synced music. Not complaining , just giving you a heads up so maybe this can be prevented in your next build.

    As always, thanks for keeping us up to date!

    Yeah, I can confirm that, not sure what's up yet. It should probably be installed via gapps, but I've never added an app to that, so I'm not sure if there are any requirements. I'll look into it.

    I just tried it, and the selection box was a rectangle. Not sure, but maybe the dimensions have something to do with it.

    What I need:
    1.) Output of /proc/mtd
    2.) A tarball of the stock /system filesystem as well as /default.prop
    I assume you have root, right?

    You could download the Wallpaper Wizardrii app. It won't fix your problem, but it should act as a workaround and let you set wallpapers in the normal shape again through the app.

    I also just installed your 'latest and greatest build' but Music player does not force close on me. Does it force close as soon as you open music or does it take a while? I can even select and play a song with no force close at all.

    I do have root, but I need to reinstall adb since fixing my computer, unfortunately, I don't know if I can get you the "stock" /system filesystem, as I for some dumb reason decided to not back up before flashing LightningC, which is just a slimmed down optimized rom without the LG and Verizon bloatware. There is a clean base rom here on the forum, not sure if it's rooted or not, I could re-root, would that help if I flashed that? If you could PM me instructions and commands to get you what you need, I can zip it up and attach it as soon as I can!

    Here's the clean rom I mentioned.

    http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg-...tex-vs660.html

    EDIT: Here is the output of /proc/mtd using "cat /proc/mtd" in a terminal emulator from the market, hoping that's what you were talking about.
    Code:
    dev:  size  erasesize  name
    mtd0: 00500000 00020000 "boot"
    mtd1: 05000000 00020000 "cache"
    mtd2: 00500000 00020000 "recovery"
    mtd3: 00140000 00020000 "splash"
    mtd4: 0bb00000 00020000 "system"
    mtd5: 00080000 00020000 "fota_usd_mdm"
    mtd6: 006a0000 00020000 "fota_sto_mdm"
    mtd7: 0b8e0000 00020000 "userdata"
    mtd8: 00080000 00020000 "misc"
    mtd9: 00180000 00020000 "persist"
    And here is a zip file with the default.prop file and a tarball containing the /system filesystem! HERE

    Okay, apparently I get a square shaped selection tool for some images and a rectangular one for others. I'm not entirely sure what the determining factor is though. It seems like when it's a photo of a person and it can make out the face, it focuses on the face in a square shape.
