    Can someone confirm....

    USB mass storage does not work with these phones and any IHO based rom under Windows unless the LG driver is used?

    I've read posts over on xda & other places concerning this and some of them are unclear (and old).
    I sometimes transfer files to/from my phone on other peoples computers and I would not be able to load the LG drivers.
    This prevents me from using any of the IHO roms.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    you need the lg drivers for your phone to be recognized unless its a linux based os... this goes for all roms, even stock... put a copy of the drivers on a usb stick and take it with you, install the drivers, transfer whatever... when youre done, uninstall/delete the drivers from their os...

    ^+1,

    If it prevents you from using IHO, what do you use? Stock?

    Alternatively, you could use an app like Wi-Fi File Transfer (if their computers have Wi-Fi).

    Incorrect, the stock rom will enable USB mass storage without the drivers installed. Also, most of the Froyo roms will work without the drivers, as they are based on stock.

    Drivers may be necessary for a SuperOneClick or zergrush root, gingerbreak only needs USB debugging to be enabled.

    The froyo roms have the drivers built in, so when you plug it up, it says Installing Device Driver.

    Thanks all for confirming...

    It makes sense that the drivers are built into Froyo. If I remember correctly, Harmonia 1.x worked without the LG drivers (as well as stock).
    All the others that I have tried have been non-Froyo.
    And yes, I'm still running stock.

    I love love love the rom! One request however: PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE remove the "01mvdalvik" file from "init.d" in the "etc" folder in the root directory? I end up not being able to install apps, and every time I have to update, I'll forget to remove it before flashing.

    Well, it is worse for me. I have to build the ROM every time I update.

    I will leave the removal of 01mvdalvik to the ones who want to do it. Removing that script to increase space in /cache causes other complications that I don't want to deal with. For example the ones who are not linking /data to sdext2 will start complaining about low space in /data this time since the purpose of 01mvdalvik is to balance the storage space between /cache and /data. I can't recommend everybody to link their /data to sdext2 either.

    Looking at the changes in CM7 repo, most of them are not related to OV. I will wait a couple of days longer before the next build.

    I have uploaded the 07162012 build.

    - Synced with CM
    - replaced the generic EGL library with GPU accelerated libraries (thanks to leolawliet)
    - New kernel with
    -- optimized strnlen, strncpy, and crc32 functions
    -- added KSM
    -- removed some of the DEBUG and Kernel hacking configs
    - added a tiny conversion patch for Optimus S (i.e. LS670) on Sprint network
    - replaced the VZW build with another tiny conversion patch for Optimus V on Verizon network

    To use the conversion patches, please install the MiRaGe VM670 ROM first and flash the patch right after. I have tested the conversion patches but given that this is the first release don't forget a nandroid backup before doing anything.

    The download links, changes, and credits are in the OP.

    Edit: I have added the LS670 version after user requests and this is the first build for Optimus S. So I would appreciate especially feedback and comments for Optimus S.

    Is the kernel included in the build? The link in the op still shows the 7/8 test kernel.

    Just installed, the system seems to have more of a kick in it now!

    UI has a lot more performance it seems
    boot-up is a tid bit faster
    Seems to be a bit more responsive as well
    Antutu gave me a 1850 for a benchmark!

    Nicely done again mrg666!!

    Also, I do have a bit of a side question for you mrg. If ICS never gets stable for this phone, would you look into porting the Optimus S 2.6.35 kernel to our phone? So we can have some sort of "upgrade" I guess you could say

    MiRaGe kernel is a heavily modified/customized kernel. It is shown as 2.6.32 but in many ways the code base diverged far from the original point. Many updates/features have been backported from 2.6.32.59, 2.6.38, 2.6.35, and 3.0 kernels. There are recent merges even from 3.5 release candidate in the latest version. There are also components like BFS, SLQB, SIO scheduler out of the mainstream Linux repo. So, going to 2.6.35 will be actually a downgrade in many ways. Please have a look at my Github repo following the link in the OP for the changes in the kernel. I would only change this kernel with a 3.0 kernel.

    How do you back port all of this stuff? I want to get into kernels, but I need some background first.

    Just to make sure (and I have read through the 19 pages), I do not have to wipe anything if I am just flashing an update?? Is it better to wipe cache and davlik cache and then flash the update?
