    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.

    Okay so now I'm thinking the rom I'm on is the only working one for me.

    Entire wipe
    Flashed Mirage
    Flashed gapps (wait 2.3.5? I didn't know I was downgrading)
    Flashed kernel
    Result - hangs on first android logo

    Entire wipe
    Flashed Mandylion
    Flashed gapps (same from previous flash)
    Flashed kernel (whatever kernel was included in the post)
    Result - loop of lg logo

    Entire wipe
    Flashed Mandylion (without gapps or kernel since I remember something about gapps being included)
    Result - exact same lg loop

    This is nuts. Am I forever destined to run backside iho and nothing else? All done with Cannibal Open Touch Recovery

    Describe your entire wipe. I'm guessing something is getting missed to bootloop after a mirage flash.

    I mean wiping absolutely everything. In cot I select factory reset and preflash wipe and wipe dalvik cache. Then install the zips.

    Try not flashing the kernel. Its something you are doing, both of those ROMs are rock solid. How long are you letting it sit waiting for boot (dont over exagerate this.)? Roms can take a while to boot on first boot while they are rebuilding the cache and dalvik cache

    EDIT: Also, mandylion absolutely requires a sd-ext partition, other wise it won't boot.

    Tried quoting, but Tapatalk quotes some Nexus forum post? Weird?

    I waited 14 minutes lol. I think I'm good with BACKside-IHO. It's at 2.3.7 and apparently those are at 2.3.5.

    Backside is a year old.

    They aren't at 2.3.5... that's just the latest gapps version, they were never updated to 2.3.7

    Those roms are not 2.3.5. The gapps you downloaded for them are.

    Agreed, the gapps just didn't get updated since 2.3.5. Both Mirage and Mandylion have more recent code from cyanogenmod then backside And are 2.3.7 based. I'm at a loss why mirage won't work for you... Instead of using factory reset+pre flash wipe try going into mounts and wipe everything except sdcard then flash the rom and reboot if the rom comes up boot back to recovery and factory reset then wipe cache + dalvik and flash gapps.

    Then why can't I use the gapps for 2.3.7? You said gapps latest was 2.3.5 which isn't true. Download link above to prove it.

    Well I still haven't tried flashing mirage without the kernel that was mentioned in the post. A complete and utter wipe of everything should allow anything to be flashed. No reason whatsoever it wouldn't work. Oh and by the way I can't go into mounts it's cot recovery they have 3 wiping options 1 wipes 3 things 1 wipes 2 things I already wiped + system and the 3rd option is wipe dalvik cache. sdcard wiping isn't an option unless you're making a partition which I already have.

    Mind as well stick with what works for me though. My phone seems to hate changing roms. Which everything works on here for me, I only use wifi.

    Could BASEBAND be an issue? If it is, I need to walked through STEP BY STEP on how to upgrade it. I have VM670ZV4.

    Baseband isn't an issue and the gapps version really doesn't matter.

    My mistake the other wipe options are under partition management in cot. Not mounts
