    Does this need a new twrp for f2fs?

    um, yeah.
    hopefully it'll remove some legacy zip flashing issues too.

    the ext4 version should flash ok in the current twrp.

    eww.
    well, the big breakage on the recent release is the camera... it can be mostly fixed by opening the settings in camera and changing the focus mode to infinity or macro, which works fine unless you try to take a picture first..., then you have to set the focus mode and then switch to videocam and back to still camera.
    as long as it's not set to autofocus it works fine without any messing with it, and it'll remember that setting between boots even.
    you might try that recent twrp and os2sd in case nothing else is beyond usability in the last release... otherwise, I'm still trying to sort out segfaults with older binaries that worked fine on previous recoveries like in the anykernel zips.
    when the gapps fail to flash while they complain about it, there's nothing in /system.... or at least no build.prop.
    I'll give it a go with the newest ones, then...hopefully they work at last, because making a backup of my current setup (BeanWhiz) hasn't been playing nicely, either...having to start over every time is a pain, lol.

    well, no new build yet.
    dalvik broke on repo sync.
    get it out there soon as possible. next release will be last for a little while. got stuff to do, and really want that 3d on my evo, but my time has been in the thunder* phones for a while now. I'm not going to hang it up for the next little while without a release I consider mostly stable.

    //edit: yay, building again after new repo sync. assuming testing goes well ext4 os2sd goes up within a couple hours. //editedit: testing going less than well but figuring out issues. slowly getting there, eta evening if it continues to repair.
    //editeditedit: built all the way again, yay. updating the kernel headers in the build and building libcamera instead of using the lge version hopefully will fix the broken autofocus rather than me having to disable it entirely.
    //editetc: dang surfaceflinger segfaults, digging into it again. be at least evening before it works.

    by the way, was looking at current multirom which uses kexec to boot whatever the hades kernel needed for multiboot roms. if it was to port politely over to the thunder phones in its current state, like it did before tasssadar went all gnarly and upgraded past the point I was able to follow along with at the late 2011/early 2012 timeframe, it would completely obsolete OS2SD as it follows the same concept, only way better and much more refined.

    Bigsupersquid, a side question when you take a break: What's the device for your next project? Maybe I'll buy it and follow along, as I really like what you've done for the ancient optimus.

    I'm rocking the 6/29 os2sd while waiting for the latest release, although am quite happy as is, except for the quirky accelerometer. If I can fix that then I wouldn't even need to upgrade to the latest. Anyone (maybe other than bss, don't want his brain to explode, at least not until after the release) knows a way, perhaps a library file switch somewhere?

    I'll upload you a kernel package for that tonight whether or not i get a working build up.

    aside from the optimus s/v/one, I'm working slowly on my virgin mobile evo 3d.
    if Polaroid ever coughs up kernel source (three years now they haven't) I'll jazz up my pmid10c, and there's also a Motorola triumph in house that needs upgraded and a WiFi only Samsung galaxy 3 I'm not yet interested in at all even though there's no kitkat for it... the galaxy actually runs pretty well on stock jellybean.
    all the other devices have really pathetic stock software, especially the Polaroid.

    check the kernel folder for updated 3.0.101 r6.0 kernel tuned to and including ami304d binary. if your accelerometer is not buttery smooth after that I'll eat my meat hat.
    for os2sd use the TLS MTDswap version.

    Thanks Bigsupersquid, although I couldn't seem to find the kernel folder... Below is the link I used from the 1st page, also checked a few more pages front and back and don't see other links:

    https://drive.google.com/folderview?...p=sharing#list

    Would this be a zip file that I could flash, or to replace a file somewhere using TWRP's file manager?

    the kernel folder is linked in the OP of the kernel thread.
    it's a zip file to flash in recovery. replaces the kernel, wifi module, and accelerometer middleware binary blob.

    Using the 0819 os2sd with TWRP multi v4; only thing that wouldn't flash is the sprint fix, and of course as already mentioned, neither Link2SD nor Toucanscrypt work with it.

    Tried new kernel, unfortunately it put my optimus in boot loop right after LG logo. I guess it's because the kernel was looking for system in the new location, which wasn't yet available in 6/29 build. I believe Bigsupersquid mentioned a while back the old source was lost, so it was wrong of me to expect this kernel to work with old builds. Guess I'll have to wait for the new release after all. Thanks for trying Bigsupersquid.

    well, os2sd is like uber-link2sd... everything is already there instead of linking it.
    the new sprint fix wouldn't flash? I though I fixed that, it needed an older(!) update-binary. I'll double-check it.
    //edit: ugh, you're right, the update-binary is not fixed yet to be generic. getting to that now, both sprint and verizon.
    //end edit
    new os2sd build seems to be working fine. camera works, no video tearing in mms video capture, wallpapers are ok, accelerometer lovely.
    the f2fs version will need the newest twrp 2.8... you should be able to use the multi-v4 for the ext4 version, but I'd still advise upgrading the recovery.
    I will have the userdebug build up soon. ext4 first, f2fs second. they take like 45 min to upload each.

    I'll put up specific f2fs instructions in the os2sd OP when it goes up. fun shiny new filesystem type that supposedly gets around ext4 issues like journaling. I'd also advise giving the f2fs a spin... you have to change the system and data filesystem type in twrp under wipe>advanced one at a time, but that's not too hard. It'll format those partitions. You can't f2fs the internal partitions, by the way.

    So i really want to use this rom, i flashed twrp 2.8 from zengarden. booted into twrp it worked. then i wiped all internal partitions. partitioned my sd according to your instructions from the recovery. then used gparted to format the ext4 parts to f2fs on the sdcard.
    my phone ran out of battery completely and is now doing the lg start up loop where it runs out of battery starting up and then reboots cause it has a charger still plugged in.

    so im stuck almost to flashing your os2sd f2fs build.
    i currently have setup like this
    "So it wont charge.....get a USB cable you don't use, cut off the end that doesn't connect to USB port, strip out the black wire, cut off the white and green wire, strip off the black and red wire to get to the copper, connect black to (-) and red to (+) on the battery terminals."
    and it doesnt seem to be charging the battery at all. any ideas?

    NVM, it worked. IT WORKED. it worked it worked it worked.
    Sammyz' black and red to battery terminal jig got me up to 70% battery in 20 minutes and now im flashing in twrp. ROCK ON

    Yeah, I forgot to mention it (because I wasn't able to attach the pic), but the lockscreen clock's not quite perfect. The date isn't centered properly, which is odd because I know previous versions had all that on point (the internal builds did, anyway).

    because it'll force close on armv6 devices.
    you'll need some other gesture keyboard that doesn't build too high a hardware spec unlike Google.

    interesting, didn't spot that.
    probably an overlay issue but dunno yet.
    looks like you got it installed and running, at least, eh?

    Yup. And now I'm having some pretty bizarre space issues. I have well over 100MB remaining of internal memory, but...
    1. Once it gets into the 115-120MB range, it acts just like devices that really have 2GB internal...and it swears it's out of space.
    2. Odder still, it seems like it's picky & choosy about what apps it wants to have installed: Angry Birds Star Wars II, an app that's ~45MB, and Cross Hearts Arcadia, and app that's ~34MB, installed just fine while AniPan (~19.5MB) and CM Security (~4MB) WOULDN'T...which makes absolutely no sense to me.

    So essentially, I still can't put back all of my apps...but that's okay, because at least it's up & running. (Though I had to set the camera's focus mode to infinity a whopping three times before that setting finally stuck)

    Welp, my build is running perfect. i have had no issues after i ran fsck.f2fs on data and system partitions. it even fixed my booting problems.
    which is weird af because i thought fsck didnt work on f2fs.

    post em to pastebin.com and put the links here.

    cat /proc/kmsg > /sdcard/kmsg.txt

    it's pretty much the same as dmesg though.
    more useful,
    cat /proc/last_kmsg > /sdcard/last_kmsg.txt
    after a reboot.
    haven't heard of dynamic fsync, I'll look it up.

    internal acts weird with the app linking and space issues.
    i think everything I'm aware of is fixed on the last os2sd release...
    considering a minimal function internal release with anything not needed for basic phone functions in /extras to sideload for you diehard internal users.
