    How do I get this working? I can install the rom, no problem, and it gets as far as the boot animation, but then it just hangs on the android, it freezes and never boots into the screen. I'd love to know what I'm doing wrong, if I am, because this rom sounds very nice and it's the only one I have absolutely not been able to get to work.

    You need to partition the sdcard and the partition must be either an ext-3 or ext-4. Look under the advance menu in the recovery for partition options, but do not set Swap, keep it at 0.

    The kernel is included in the rom. No need to flash it separate unless you want to use it on another rom

    Well the flash zip for the Kernel is a little newer then what comes with the ROM, I'm been doing more work with the Kernel lately testing out what works and what doesn't: also see what can be re moved. That is the reason I release the Kernel, so that others can use it without have to flash the ROM.

    Kernel update is posted for testing. I'm still working on adding the option to turn on and off fastcharge in CMParts and on an app to replace BacksideUpdater.

    Hi EarthnFire,

    Today I installed your ROM and newer kernel. Everything seems to work great so far! I tried to flash the CWM Blue Recovery with Flash Image GUI app, and keep getting told to flash a compatible recovery image for the Optimus V. I thought just the misspelling in the name was the problem, but it still won't let me flash.

    Also, just to make sure, everything in this ROM, kernel, and recovery is compatible with the updated radio ZV9, right?

    Thanks very much!

    I'm not a big fan of the Flash Image GUI, if you have already flashed the ROM then BacksideUpdater can also flash a recovery. Just a note if you downloaded the recovery using the stock browser then use FileManager to rename ".txt" to ".img," as Androids way of keeping .img files from auto playing is to save it as a .txt.

    And yes the kernel is ZV9 Radio Compatible.

    I'm sorry to be such a noob, but I've been all over in the VM670NH_recovery, and can't find the option to flash a recovery anywhere. I tried using install zip from sd card, and your recovery does not show. Which option should I choose?

    I appreciate your help!

    Hi Badboytoast,

    I used the guide you referenced, and followed each step carefully. The terminal emulator replied there were a few out of memory issues, and a number of successful executions. When I rebooted into recovery, the LG logo just hangs and I can't get past this point. I have to pull the battery.

    I tried to use the Flash Image GUI app to reflash the VM670NH_recovery (because that's how I flashed it on my phone in the first place). It didn't seem to do anything, so I tried it again. I then rebooted into recovery, and the LG logo still hangs again and have to pull the battery.

    What should I do now? I feel like an *****.

    You may want to find out what is in the data partition, and the cache for the download apps are still stored on internal storage. You may also need to clear Play Store Data. If you are using Titanium Backup then stop, because it does not understand how the sd-ext is mounted it well restore the applications data to the data partition, and unlink from sd-ext.

    How are you downloading the recoveryimage?

    If you are using the phone then check to see it the files extension was renamed. If you are using your computer then adb push the recovery to phones sdcard.

    You dont use recovery to flash a recovery unless its a flashable zip. Use backside updater

    How do I check the data partition and make sure the download cache is going in internal storage?

    ......try using the terminal emulator to flash VM670NH_RECOVERY.IMG make sure its .img at the end! Also which recovery are you trying to flash? A link to the recovery would help me help you more!

    I would just use MybackupRoot to make a backup of the installed apps and call log, MMS and SMS messages. then boot into recovery and do a factory/data reset. After rebooting back into the ROM use MybackRoot to restore the apps and data.

    @EarthnFire78: I downloaded the recovery with my computer, then pushed it to my phone.

    @sellers86: Thank you for that excellent comment! I didn't know that, and checked. There is a "Flash a recovery" option in Backside updater!

    @Badboytoast: I was trying to install CWM-Blue-Recvoery-20120629.img from the link in the first page of this thread. I ended up using Flash Image GUI to reinstall the VM670NH_recovery.img recovery.

    I really appreciate the help!

    happyboy7 - I would recommend using CWM-Blue-Recovery because any other recovery you would have to do a full wipe install to flash any ups the OM-Manadylion, I build the recovery so that wiping everything did not have to be done.

    How mean apps do you have installed, the cache for download apps is still stored on the internal data storage and I would say no more then 700 - 800MB of apps can be installed?
