    Ok, looking into the available clocksource timers reveal that there are 2 dg_timer and gp_timer. The current clocksource in use with the kernel is dg_timer. Switching the timer is supposed to eliminate/fix timekeeping, so in theory switching to gp_timer should maybe get rid of clock lag. Doing this is beyond my ability, so maybe someone who actually knows what they are doing can give it a try.
    To check available
    $ cat /sys/devices/system/clocksource/clocksource0/available_clocksource



    Next, check the current clock source in use:

    $ cat /sys/devices/system/clocksource/clocksource0/current_clocksource



    Finally, set the new clock source:

    echo <new clock source selection> > /sys/devices/system/clocksource/clocksource0/current_clocksource
    To make this change persistent across system reboots, the following must be added to the kernel command line in /boot/grub/grub.conf:

    clocksource=<clock source choice>

    Anyone installing onto Optimus S have a really long first boot time? I've had it on the silver Android page loop for about an hour now.
    It's fine if you just have a long first boot, but I want to know that there's a light at the end of this tunnel. Or, am I doing something wrong?
    Process:
    Wiped system, cache, data, installed a fresh download (finally got that problem fixed by downloading on another person's internet).

    Trebuchet, the one that it comes with now, is probably "better," but adding rows was a nice feature of the old one. I got it working now, I'll see if I can find a way to post it.

    I'm a novice, but that looks like something other than Android. Linux ubuntu maybe? Should be similar tho.

    It shouldn't take that long, and shouldn't even have the silver android loop. Should be the blue cyanogenmod loop. Something's not right.

    You did download the internal build, right? The OS2SD one won't work unless you're partitioned things correctly.

    Figured it out, wasn't mounting system before loading the zip.

    Very much novice here also, I actually typed the commands in terminal emulator and it responded with the above mentioned clock sources. From what I understand you need Ubuntu 12.04 to build kernels For Android. I read a tutorial that is on the XDA site but way over my head not for Noobs like me.

    make sure and mount data and system before flashing the fix.

    Installing the SprintFix-CM11.zip failed with "set_perm" problems on an Optimus S. Any idea what I may have done wrong? Also, tried installing it with system and data mounted.

    EDIT: Retried after wiping and reinstalling ROM, then fix (before G-apps).
    Exact log:
    "set_perm: some changes failed"
    "E:Error executing updater binary"
    "Error flashing zip '/sdcard/Spri"
    "Updating partition details..."

    EDIT2: Here are my md5sums:

    Here is the Kernel http://forums.androidcentral.com/opt...x-3-0-8-a.html.
    There should be links to the sprint fix on the first page of this thread
    Edit: the kernel is already included in the ROM, not sure if this kernel would work on CM7( if that was your intent) based ROM's without possibly breaking something or lacking functionality so make a Nandroid first.

    Yes, it breaks everything USB on cm9 on down.
    the sprint fix will only work on this rom, any other should have its own.

    Is it possible I need a ZVJ patch? I'm on a ZVJ radio. In other words is this a "zvd" rom? I've tried the Sprint fix with system and data mounted, with everything mounted. Nothing is getting through. Tried before and after Skinny Gapps too.

    In the original cm11 ROM both zvh and cvj radios did require a patch, so you may be correct in needing one.

    Here is the patch http://www.mediafire.com/?5pih91sfswt3gca

    Playing around with my old Optimus V and need some clarifications about flashing OS2SD and Gapps. I partitoned my card using TWRP in op and have the 2gb, 512mb, & 512mb ext4 partitions.

    • In your OS2SD instruction you say "format OS2SD system, OS2SD data and Internal cache". By format do you mean wipe? Do I have to mount OS2SD system and data before formatting?


    • Next, after "install rom zip" it says, reboot. Reboot recovery or reboot phone into android?


    • I'm not entirely sure what's supposed to be mounted at which points while flashing the rom and gapps


    Now the weird part is that I can flash and boot into Kit Kat just fine and play around in it. When I try flashing Skinny Gapps and reboot to android, there are no Google apps to be found. When I flash PA Gapps, google apps are there but i get lots of errors and force closures like AOSP keboard stops, or play store opens but looks like its twitching.

    Formatting IS wiping.

    Reboot phone into Android after installing the ROM.

    /system and /data should be mounted before installing the ROM and gapps.

    When I put in a ROM from scratch, I not only wipe /system and /data, but also /boot, /cache, /sdext, /sdcard/.android_secure and dalvik cache. Squid should mention this in the OP. Cleaning out those directories virtually eliminates some of the problems you're describing.

    I've been wondering if OS2SD is portable to other phones/ROMS. I was surprised to see that VM's higher end phones like S3, HTC Desire, ZTE Supreme don't even have KitKat and a lot of those phones suffer in relative terms with poor storage, OS2SD would solve that for a phone like an F3 or Supreme. We have some awesome Devs working on our phones, kind of funny actually that the little optimus V has kikat and a Samsung galaxy S3 does not, officially or in any ROM.

    OS2SD has been a bit unstable for me. Freezes and reboots 10 minutes into the phone.

    Any tips on curing this ailment?

    That's odd, very stable for me. What governor are you using and what are your settings? Anything above 729 for max will invite re-boots. Also need to keep an eye on RAM especially,if it dips much below 80 the phone will LAG bad, so I keep an app like quick reeboot to free it up every so often along with cache cleaner apps to free up memory. With normal use( not surfing internet) the phone works great, and besides the clock lag it's my daily driver and blue tooth, mms, texting, multitasking all work great.

    Bean_Whiz ROM (Jellybean). Link2SD and your script. I have 82 downloaded apps (some over 20MBs) and still have 141.86MBs of 178.87MB internal storage space left.
    I liiiike it!
    I guess I need to see if it works with MiRaGe (Gingerbread) next.

    Thought I'd put in another plug for my script. Andy's been using and liking with a few different ROMs now. Definitely the way to go if you aren't using the OS2SD build. Here's the link: http://forums.androidcentral.com/sho...d.php?t=375959
