    I've been pondering what to do about space issues in jb and one possible solution is to override the partition sizes in the kernel to give more space to system and less to data. This would make sdext pretty much mandatory. It would also require a matching recovery kernel. And it would mean a full wipe would be necessary when switching to/from other roms.

    How many people don't use sdext and/or would not want to do this?
    Seems like a very feasible idea. I'm using sd-ext already so let me know if you need someone to test.

    What kind of recovery kernel are you suggesting?

    A recovery kernel with the same partition override.

    Can't seem to get any themes to work for some reason...
    On the latest AOKP nightly. I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong here. I reverted back to the system theme, rebooted, and then I always get a message saying that the theme was not "compiled correctly". I've tried 6 or 7 different themes all to the same effect.
    Any ideas?

    EDIT: I tried setting my LCD density to hdpi and still nothing.

    Is it really that big? I slimmed it to 87 mb... and I didn't slim down any apps. My advice would be remove all ringtones/notification tones except the default, and remove the boot animation(add them in separate files). 87 mb is only 3-4 mb bigger than my cna rom... and for the record, I don't use sd-ext and don't plan to. I don't install many apps. I have about 70mb of internal data storage after everything is installed.

    I don't feel that JB adds much to this old phone. For the sake of stability ICS should be the last OS version.

    Have you played with it? Its about 1000000000000000x smoother. Without an overclock. Ill keep working on it even if everyone else gives up.

    I would go for it tdm, you could probably ask drew to make a custom cannibal recovery for this purpose. I mean he is making a JB ROM for the S *shrug* and a sd-ext partition is really no big deal in my eyes.

    I too am willing to do this. I have a spare LG Optimus V sitting around that doesn't have an OS on it right now. Just the custom recovery. It's my test phone and would be perfect for this.

    A little background: I got this idea from the teamhacksung i9000 kernel. That phone has a combined boot/recovery partition (just one of the strange and proprietary things samsung does), so there are no worries about matching the main and recovery kernels.

    No, jb is not that much larger than ics, and cm10 may well squeeze on there. But I'm already removing things to make ics fit. And aokp ics has already lost SwagPapers, so aokp jb may not even fit at all. And aokp is just as popular as cm. I really don't want to stop building it.

    I'm just glad that the OV doesn't have 256 mb of ram or it'll be hell getting ics to play nicely with it.

    Any chance boot from sd could be a viable option? I remember reading this off xda last year where they had success using this method on the V. Don't believe it specified ROM, but I would assume GB. Might be a good alternative to allow for aokp file size.
    EDIT: did specify cm7

    I applied your Halo theme and it worked, but I was more looking for a red and black theme to go with my background. So I guess I should just be looking for mdpi themes.
    Though I thought changing the LCD density in the settings would make it hdpi and xhdpi compatible.
    But thanks though! At least I know what to look for now.

    Well considering that most people that are using quattrimus are beginning to use ext, I don't see why doing the same with JB would be a problem. I'd LOVE a jb rom, cause "jb" are my initials, cheesy, I know xD

    I recommend AfterBurner. And make sure the themes you're downloading are CM9/AOKP mdpi themes, and NOT CM7 themes.

    If you're talking about the afterburner theme I had already found and applied it lol. Thank you for your help. I am happy with it.

    EDIT: Ha apparently nitestalkr already recommended it. Thanks guys. Looking good.

    And thanks tdm for this ROM. I'm loving ICS on my poopy old Optimus V.
