    I wouldn't try it like that, just place the files in the zip itself, but do not unzip the ROM file, if you do, and try to zip it back up, it won't become flash able due to the default compression method used.

    It wouldn't allow me to place the files in the zip.

    What zip manager are you using?

    Do not unzip the rom....meaning do not extract it.

    Thanks for explaining that.
    And if you do choose to unzip(extract) and want to zip it back up(make it a zip file again) you would need to change the compression method to 'Store' instead of 'Compress'. Sammyz and I discovered this when making our boot animations. But its just easier to NOT extract the zip, and to just open the zip folder with winRAR, 7zip, izarc (I use this), or any other compression software, and copy the needed files from the fix.zip(this zip can be extracted) and replace the ones in the ROM.zip(DO NOT EXTRACT THIS).

    Use 7zip it's like duct tape for rom flashing.

    Open the zip file in 7zip. In that application, you can navigate files just like a folder. Delete the old files, replace them with the new ones, it will be saved automatically. Turn off signature verification before you flash. Simple as that.

    I do this when I replace launchers in ROMs before I flash, or if I want to get inverted GApps going with less steps. Works great.

    No, NEVER extract and rezip an entire ROM, you break stuff by doing that. There are files you just cannot see while in windows. A bootanimation you can, but a ROM this is a NO-NO

    Its just not safe to repackage a ROM that way, I've done it to a few times, there were only a few incidents where the ROM broke.

    Yea, unless its a flash able zip, its always best to stick it into the rom before flashing.
    If it still doesn't work, then wait for another fix. JB is still extremely early alpha, so be patient.

    Thanks for the quick reply! I will try here soon and let you know how it goes! I'm patient, just love this Jelly Bean and would love to listen to my music. All the devs on this are crazy and I'm very thankful for all their hard work. Thanks for the help and info you've provided for me
    Edit: Did not work, no biggie. Guess that's why I have an MP3 player

    No problem, any time.
    I'm waiting until a ROM is officially built with the ZVD and sound lib fixes and released by a dev before I start testing for myself, till then, I will just provide information and help out those in need. After all, I'm available practically 24/7 on the forums through tapatalk.

    Would I be able to pull the Libs and or other files out of a working ROM like Quattrimus Cm9? If its possible could u provide me with what files I will need to pull from cm9? I also seen that someone is working on this same ROM for ZVD (vm670) and it won't boot in, but could the sound files on that work possibly or are they the same as the ones I currently have?

    No, using libs from android 4.0.4 on Android 4.1 could cause problems, devs have experienced this when trying to use files from a froyo rom, to get a GB rom working. Same with GB onto ICS. JB will require JB libs. So unless you find a JB rom for LG Optimus S/U/V that contains the necessary files, you're out of luck.

    So the libs have to be custom made or the kernal modified to fix the issues.

    To my knowledge, you are correct. It's most likely a kernel issue, since its still using a Ginger Kernel variant. We still dont have our own ICS kernel built yet. If its not a kernel issue, then its an issue with the source, missing needed files. Either way, only time will tell when we get working sound on JB, all we can do is be patient, or hit the books and figure out how to fix this, without forward porting (which 97% of the time, never works).

    Oh OK. So how do you build your own kernels and such? I've always been curious, I would really like to get into that process, I'm very good with computers and such, but never looked into how to build kernels and such, even being able to port a ROM over would be awesome.

    Edit: Sorry I realize I'm getting a bit off topic. Any links you guys can give me? So I don't get off topic on here
