    Did you flash a recovery via ROM manager while on bobz's ROM? Because ROM manager's recovery for the v doesn't work. As for MIUI, no. Not gonna happen.

    No i didn't i dont even have ROM manager. I downloaded the Rom via my laptop then transferred it to my sd card , then went into my recovery and did it that way. This is what i did

    1) Backup your apps with something like TitaniumBackup or MyBackup

    2) Download the BACKside ROM zip file, the gapps zip file, and optional GreenMachineTheme zip file linked below and place them on your sdcard

    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)

    7) Flash the BACKside ROM zip file
    so i did that and nothing

    You need to check the md5sum of your download to be sure it isn't corrupt.

    Once you have the ROM zip file on your sdcard, open Terminal emulator and type the following:
    md5sum /sdcard/BACKside-IHO-VM670-02122012.zip
    The md5 you are looking for with the 0212201 build is:

    Do NOT use Rom Manager.
    Sounds like your card is failing.

    Copy everything off, then format it with the phone in recovery. Then put everything back, that might fix it.

    inceyet.... just a gut guess.. unplug the phone.. do this stuff with it running off of the battery.

    inceyet... i just did this yesterday... i am having same/similar problem... the option is in your recovery menu... youll scrool past it when you go to format system... do not forget to backup phone and make current copies of files to desktop/laptop!!!

    oops... already answered... and ive tried this with ov running alone and still hasnt worked... i think jerry has the idea of it having to do with poor signal... you use 3g or wifi to download?.. how many bars do you usually have?...

    ( when downloading from pc) make sure when the "open with" window pops up that your browser is selected and save... try that...

    There is your problem.
    You need to do that (it's safe to do from recovery, just not from within the rom).
    You also need to wipe dalvik, boot and system. Older phones you could get away with not doing all of this, but newer ones, almost universally require it.

    ok i know how to do the dalvik wipe but the system and boot do you mean format or wipe cause i dont know how or where that is in the recovery i know the format section.

    then what do i do after i do the recovery? a system backup and boot back up ?

    assuming you've already wiped cache, delvik, data; formatted boot, cache, data, and system; then just reboot... after your phones fully booted you can then go back into recovery and make a backup... personally I like to set my phone first (settings/apps), then backup... then make a copy to your desktop (you can never be too careful)...

    If you formatted and wiped everything (same thing), there is nothing to back up, just install your rom and reboot.

    Is it possible to root my new LG Optimus V 2.3.4? I have tried a few different things but none of them have worked any advice?

    Unless VM released a new phone with GB, you do not have 2.3.4 (or you got someones used phone).
