    Go back to 2.2. It must be LGHome.


    Also. I just got my HTC One V. Its so skinny. xD

    This will probably be discontinued by me, but still updated if Neko releases an update.

    Depends on Rom.


    I found a faster way recently.


    Roughly twenty minutes. Or 10. Decompile Framework.jar takes a couple of minutes. Then I do my own testing.

    I just seen the page that says updated to latest cyanogen mod nightly build but yet when I go to that page it says there isn't any builds available. Isn't this the proper page to go to to get the latest nightly for the P500: CyanogenMod Downloads

    Flashable zip in OP. If it's not there, check the XDA thread.

    Thanks, I didn't see that way at the bottom of the OP.

    Edit: BTW is there some way to customize the LG keyboard further? I noticed it changed quite a lot between 2.2 and 2.3

    Maybe by messing with the inside of the APK, Idk how to go about doing it though. Still, 2.2 was the best release so far.

    So I just tried to flash this ROM with ROM Manager. It seems like it went through all the steps but then it says: assert failed: getprop("ro.product.device") == "thunderc" II getprop("ro.product.device") == "thunderc" II getprop("ro.product.device") == "thunderc" II E:Error in /sdcard/GSNAP_2.3.8_TGL_10-25-12.zip
    (Status 7)
    Installation aborted.

    Then it says a temp log ws copied to my sdcard and to open Rom Manager to report the issue. Only I can't power down the phone, its stuck on the Rom Manager screen.

    I'm afraid to pull the battery cause the phone was wiped at the beginning of the process right? Can anyone please help me before my battery dies?

    Thanks.

    Yeah, I had flashed clockwork recovery. I just pulled the battery and rebooted. I'm back to the stock Virgin Mobile Froyo OS with all my personal data gone, (i.e. a factory reset.)

    I also just read that ROM Manager does not play nice with the Optimus. Can anyone make a recommendation as to what I should flash this ROM with? Since my settings are all gone I'd still love to try this ROM.

    I could actually probably restore my old setup but want to give this ROM a go.

    Shut your phine off
    Press and hold vol dn amd home then power until lg flashes
    That should take you to recovery where you can wipe flash and backup

    Thanks for you replies.

    I don't understand. ROM Manager was using clockwork recovery to flash the Gingersnap ROM and it failed. Wouldn't fail again even if I do it directly from clockwork? I'm reading that Xionia is a better recovery to flash with.

    Pretty awesome ROM! Just switched over from GTR and loving it. But can anyone tell me how to get an EXT partition to work on here? I've used other roms that have support automatically built in so I am not sure how to get it to work here. I tried Link 2 SD but that did not seem to work, it still installed apps to my internal. I am going to re-partition my 32gb card with a EXT4 4gb partition and see if that works. But if anyone has a working method please let me know

    BTW using 2.2

    Has anyone tried 2.2 with EarthnFire78's kernel? Thinking of going back to 2.2, but I really like the new kernel.

    Not sure about that (I am a new user of this ROM myself and still poking around) but if you look at the applications section of the settings menu it looks like you can move any app to the SD card directly from there without super manager or some other super user app. Not exactly what you are looking for but I thought it was pretty cool!

    Actually if you go to settings, scroll down to CyanogenMod settings and the go to Application you can select the sd card as the location for apps to be installed!

    By the way much thanks to adamhos who helped me complete the flashing of this ROM. He pointed me to Team Win's TWRP which is WAAAAAAAY better than Clockwork Recovery. I am now running GingerSnap with Xperia Launcher and an ICS theme/icon pack. My phone has been lightened from bloatware and garbage apps I never use. I went from having 18MB of internal memory with constant low memory warning even though all my apps had been forced to my sd card to having all my apps installed on the phone with 60MB left over and more room on my sd for cached music. This absolutely rocks and is why Apple sucks Android's nuts.
