    I use and recommend cot recovery. And since you are already on a custom recovery you can use the universal installer zip here

    Note: after flashing the new recovery you should make a backup with it prior to trying any new roms

    ERMERGERD I love it! Keeping this recovery.

    Since I'm already using Link2SD in a way that I'm used to, do I really need the int2ext script by cro--whatever his name was? I'm a bit confused on what to do with it anyway, I downloaded it just in case. *waits for response*

    I don't think link2sd will work with pac rom but so long as you have a backup there's no reason you can't try

    Ha of course I wipe. Everything was magical and great until installing the cronmod's script. It said cannot copy update-binary. Then aborted. What now?

    Got the rom booted up. It's slow :/ like a bit too slow... And verdict is...

    Doesn't charge. Damnit. I know my phone charges while in recovery and thanks to the new recovery I can see battery stats. But eh. That means I'd have to charge it every 4 hours because of my high usage. I live on this phone. Back to my backup now. Figuring out what to do.

    Since you think its the gapps affecting it just try flashing the rom to see if it charges without them

    Something to try..... Find some of the flashable kernels for the ov and try flashing them to pac or another 4.0+ rom you want to try. I can't guarantee they'll boot it because most are built for gingerbread but if it did boot it'd be interesting to see if it charges then. I'd probably see if the Mandylion kernel will work

    Hmm. I think you're right. If the kernel is the thing telling the phone to do stuff, and the fact that I have a kernel from backside iho, changing the kernel sounds like it would work. I just realized I've never flashed a kernel since I got iho backside.

    Because the event for "charging" must be different if you compare the two kernels. You recommend the Mandylion kernel?



    2.6.32.9-v3.7 bobzhome@ubuntu is the kernel that I have. If you could please, link me to any flashable kernels and I will be glad to test them on a few 4+ roms!

    This is what i meant when I said that it probably wasn't a ROM issue . Its pretty unlikely a GB kernel would boot though. on a side note, I can't type worth a crap on this phone anymore. Lol

    Mirage rom has a flashable kernel in its op and it's thread is always at the top of the forums

    Edit: also its very likely that even if the gb kernel gets the rom to boot, things won't work right in the rom. It's more of an experiment mainly to see if it would fix your charging issue.

    Every ROM has a different kernel installed with the ROM. When you flash a different ROM you get a different kernel (a few of the older IHO Gingerbread ROMs shared kernels, but not really anymore).
    For a complete list of the available flashable kernels for each individual OS Version (ie: Froyo, Gingerbread, ICS) go here: http://androidforums.com/optimus-v-a...ml#post5516566
    You do not have to wipe anything before flashing a new kernel.
    itzpremix and thewraith420 like this.

    Download link for iScream kernel is dead. Looks like someone didn't pay for their website. Could you Dropbox the kernel for me?

    It's because iscream kernel was succeeded by HydroKernel and the dev for it is not allowed on these forums anymore.

    Given up. I'm just gonna stick with BACKside-IHO. Best performance. Most compatible. Clearer camera than stock. So I got an adw theme along with a launcher and tweaked settings so now my phone could be fooled for JB (if you've never owned one).

    Nothing wrong with that. you should give Mirage, and OM-Mandylion roms a try. They're both cm7 and shouldn't cause any charging issues. I think mrg666 even themed Mirage to look like ics and he recommends link2sd which your already familiar with. Earthnfire78's OM-Mandylion is my personal favorite of the cm7 roms it uses your sd - ext partition automatically and has several other nice features such as usb fastcharge toggle in the notification power widget. Either would be a solid choice and still receive updates and support.
