    It's still a little early to tell but so far yes as well as bobz kernel and mirage kernel

    A few posts/page back, on my thread, or on my xda thread. Too lazy to get a link.

    I've been running the 5/4 build of mirage with the updated kernel all day, no reboots yet. No other problems either. Phone is very responsive, better than its ever been.

    I would advise playing it safe and going back to stock first. It is well worth an extra ten minutes up front to minimize risk of bricking your phone.

    Here's the stock zv9 recovery. It's what I use for the update.

    Big Fat Qestion guys?... my husband & I were running the boss's limo last Sat. night driving his nephew & friends to their prom. (don't laugh, you make GREAT TIPS!) and we were using Google maps to navigate. his Garmin is 2 years old & JUNK! He runs Backside IHO (kept up to date) with the latest GAPPS file possible for 2.3.7 Google Maps kept force closing & rebooting the phone in the middle of the Baltimore, MD
    Inner Harbor while he's driving a 33 ft stretch Ford Excursion Limo w/ 18 minors & a panicked wife aboard. (the Inner Harbor streets are VERY NARROW & most are one way!) He is running ZV5 radio, and the Bobzhome recovery. His phone is also used for business so I can't risk bricking it. Can I use that ZV9 update to help that Google Maps problem. (and it's just any app that has to keep the GPS connection open. Beat the Traffic app does the same thing). It's like the GPS struggles to get a target, locks on, then locks up the whole phone, force closes & auto reboots. HELP!! Any advice here?

    ps> he also runs Time Sheet app to record his time as he gets paid by the hour so it's
    running at the same time. Never any problems out of that app so far, but he can't
    afford to lose ANY data from this phone. We back it up weekly as a result.

    This update is the last thing you want to do. I would make a new thread or post in the IHO thread with your issue.

    It would be great if you can test and post your feedback. I have flashed to my phone and it still seems to be working. I can't make it reboot yet.
    Just another quick update on your new kernel. I flashed this one right after you uploaded and things are still running smooth. There is one other benefit I've noticed. It seems the screen rotation lag is either minimized or eliminated. I had been rebooting on a daily basis to keep the rotation quick and smooth, I'm now at over 48 hours since a reboot and the rotation still seems snappy, I don't notice any slow downs yet.

    Thanks! I think we can consider that pesky reboot problem nailed. I have also noticed a smoother gui experience. That comes from gcc-4.7, I assume. Thanks to everyone (cole2kb, tdm, tvall, ....) who contacted LG to get the source code.

    Have to agree. My phone is running better than it ever has. Not a single reboot since the new kernel. Great job everyone!

    No problems since the new kernel came out. I updated to MiRaGe 05/04 yesterday. It is GREAT to be home again!

    Not sure if this is the right place to post but here goes. I'm running mirage 5-4 with zv9, no reboots or lags. However, every time I open google maps my phone reboots when I try to zoom in on my location. But like I said sms and calls are great. Is there a fix or known issue that I'm missing? Thanks in advance.

    Question - I just tried to flash the the update file in the first post (I had to rename it to "update.zip" so the stock recovery could see it) and I'm getting an aborted install due to a signature verification failure. I re-downloaded it and for the same error.

    Any idea what stupid mistake I might be making?

    Much appreciated.

    Don't do that (renaming that update). It's meant to be flashed as is with a compatible custom recovery. But there is reason to believe that it doesn't actually work (ie doesn't actually update the radio).

    That's why the procedure is to run the original, full update.zip from virgin mobile - and run it twice: first time to make it flash the new stock recovery, second time to actually flash the radio image. Factory wipe before each run (in recovery of course), that should save you from having to pull the battery on first boot.

    The update is available on the vmu website. There are links earlier in this thread - along with more detailed instructions.

    You need to do the full update. The patch in the op has generally been decided it doesn't work. If you do the full update its now verifiable.

    what i find funny about the whole update is that many never even got a notice from virgin mobile in any form that an update was available. strange.

    My phone works fine with the update, but it was fine before. If I had it to do all over again, I wouldn't bother.
