    Hey Squid,

    Got the latest internal running now with my Toucanscrypt and it is SICK! The changes since I last updated are amazing! Did get stuck on one thing tho.

    Had to edit my script slightly due to partition swap, and noticed in the process that my script is struggling to mount /system rw with the same command that worked in earlier versions. A log I got running is throwing all these "rm: can't remove '/system/...': Read-only file system" errors. Any thoughts? Here's the line that worked before:

    Code:
    # remount rw
    busybox mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mtdblock6 /system
    busybox mount -o rw,remount -t rootfs rootfs /

    for the changes, gotta thank Androidarmv6 team and CM.
    for the remount, Iike I mentioned in the sysro/sysrw thread, you could try replacing /dev/block/mtdblock6 with /system. that's about all I've got.

    Ha, got it working. Tried just about every possible iteration of the mount command. Only one I could get to work was
    Code:
    # remount rw
    mount -o rw,seclabel,nosuid,nodev,relatime,remount /dev/block/mtdblock6 /system
    mount -o rw,seclabel,relatime,remount -t rootfs rootfs /
    I think the catch was the "seclabel" part. Something with the new kernel or add-ons or something wouldn't let it mount without that. Also, even with everything else the same, busybox still takes issue with it. I don't even understand what "seclabel" does (something to do with selinux, maybe? NEWB!), but busybox must not like it. Either way, it works so I'll be posting a new version of my script for the last internal shortly.

    Ah
    SELinux is an access control implementation for the Linux kernel. As an administrator, you define rules in user space and if the Linux kernel has been compiled with SELinux support, those rules will be adhered to by the kernel. The enforcing option enables the SELinux code and causes it to enforce access denials as well as auditing them. - See more at: What is SELinux and how does it work? | Linux.com
    Makes sense...kinda anyway.

    probably built that release with selinux enforcing turned on in kernel. when I was paying attention, it was built permissive selinux mode instead.
    is odd, in twrp with enforcing kernel I could only get ext2 partitions mounted with busybox (forgot to activate security settings on ext2 in kernel config.)
    glad you figure it out, and thanks for posting the solution.

    Ugh. Installed the 10/25, PA Pico GApps, Sprint Fix...here's how it went on my Optimus S:
    1. Like the 11/whatever one, system apps still cannot be eliminated through Titanium Backup; still gotta use Root Explorer, go to the folder, mount r/w, and play from there.
    ...
    4. Not sure how, but the baked in Superuser doesn't play nice with some apps that require root *glaring at Juice Defender & Lucky Patcher*.
    For your #1 above: It's hard to tell if it wasn't another fluke or not, but I think I've had trouble with Titanium Backup and the built-in Superuser. I changed over to SuperSU and TB worked. (Wish I could totally confirm SuperSU was the fix in that case, but so much odd goes on with my phone that it's hard to say anything for sure.)

    I've run across several cases where people report that Superuser doesn't play nice with some root apps, especially ones that want to write/remount filesystems (like root explorers). I've had similar experiences. Something to do with Kitkat no longer defaulting to permissive mode in SELinux, or something like that (I think I just said something I don't really understand). I'm wondering if that is also the problem with your #4 above. Maybe switching to SuperSU will help that as well?

    //Edit: Should have mentioned, I'm on an Optimus V, running OS2SD ext4.

    Tested and worked immediately with little hastle. Will test a couple of apps shortly to make sure this was truely what was affecting them.

    After a while of having my phone on the 10/30 OS2SD ext4 version, last night I figured I'd try the CrossBreeder linked up near the OP. I flashed the zip file with TWRP, and my phone booted, re-built the Dalvik cache, then immediately rebooted and got stuck at the Cyanogenmod spinning logo. Tried pulling the battery a couple times, waited a long very long time after Dalvik finished optimizing my apps. And then I searched here. Didn't see any reference to CrossBreeder causing bootloops or other trouble. Is this unique to me?

    So I dirty-flashed the ROM zip, gapps, and pa-facilitator, rebooted and let it rebuild the Dalvik cache again. After several self-reboots, the phone seems to have settled down. Problem is, I don't know enough about what CrossBreeder does to know the state of my phone. Does anyone know if CB is still installed and able to function with the CB app, or will I need to re-flash the CB zip in order for it to function?

    My latest version of Toucanscrypt (1.1), built specifically for the last internal build, is now ready! Here's the link for those still interested in running internal: http://forums.androidcentral.com/opt...ited-apps.html

    Hard to believe it's been nearly 7 months since my last update (1.0)!

    Hey! Just realized this thread is almost to its first birthday! It was started 01-31-2014 07:54 AM! Thanks and congrats to bigsupersquid on a lot of hard work between then and now!

    Ok, did that and it still gets stuck on the Cyanogenmod boot animation. Dirty-flashed ROM again and phone boots. Looks like there is something about the CB zip and the 10/30 ROM that are incompatible, at least on my phone. I'll have to start digging through the install script and the CB files to see what changes it's attempting to make. I know next to nothing about CB right now -- time I start learning!

    cb scripting is really concise to the point of needing to be a shell wizard to decipher it. wish you luck. it's never bootlooped anything on me, guessing it is another variable.

    In the words of Homer Simpson, "CRAAAAAAAAAP!!"
    About a week ago, my Optimus S hit the ol' wake lock blue screen. I thought "no biggie, battery pull." Except that didn't help at all!! It flashed the LG logo and shut off like the battery died...only to do it again...and again...and again. Tried to just let it kill itself and then recharge, but not only did that not work (LG logo, off, LG logo, off, etc.; shuts off outright upon unplugging), but now my power button doesn't work. Worse yet, I can't go into recovery, since the power button doesn't work and it wouldn't stay ON long enough anyway...

    Hey guys, first of all let me say I'm absolutely amazed to still find support for this device. My GS3 took a crap on me and I had to pull this sucker out as a backup, big props to everyone involved. Now onto my issue..

    I'm trying to get the internal version to work since the os2sd version seems a little laggy, even with crossbreeder (I have to constantly pause while typing on the phone to let it catch up) Unsure if running the internal version would actually fix it but I thought I'd give it a shot. I'm constantly getting the Setup Wizard has stopped error, I tried a clean flash and booting without flashing skinny gapps and that didn't work. Any advice or suggestions would be much appreciated.

    didn't realize setup wizrd was in there. internal should fix your speed problem, sd card is probably too slow.
    mount /system in twrp-internal mode, open advanced>file manager, go to /system/app (or maybe /system/priv-app) and delete setupwizard.apk (onetimeinitializer too if it's in there.)
    then reboot.

    I'm actually not finding either of those apk's which makes this a bit strange, right? I'm using cm-11-20141014-EXPERIMENTAL-internal_bigsuperROM-thunderc with Skinny_4.4_Gapps_new_internal. Have tried completely wiping the device a few times and starting from scratch with no luck. Am I potentially missing an abnormal step if coming from the os2sd build?

    I flashed the os2sd version on my Virgin Mobile Optimus V this past weekend. Now, I can run many of the most basic apps that I couldn't run with the Virgin Mobile stock ROM. Thanks, bigsupersquid!

    I have a few problems with the new ROM, and I am hoping that someone here can help me debug them:
    1) Camera cannot focus. I can take photos with the stock camera app but the photos are fuzzy. With the Barcode Scanner app by ZXing, the screen freezes after about 10 seconds unless I uncheck "autofocus" in the settings. HSBC app also cannot take photos. The shutter button on screen doesn't work, and the screen freezes after about 10 seconds. When the screen freezes due to camera problem, I can get always get out of the app by pressing the physical home button. I can even get back to the app by holding the home button for recent apps. Then, I have about 10 seconds before the screen freezes again. The point is, neither the phone nor the app freezes. It is just the camera screen of the apps.
    2) Video recording does not work. With the stock camera app I can take photos and panorama but when I switch to video mode, it crashes and says "Unfortunately, Camera has stopped."
    3) Sometimes, the phone struggles to wake up after the screen is turned off. When I press the power button or any of the four physical buttons, it takes anywhere from 1 to 30 seconds for the screen to turn on.
    4) Mobile data gets disconnected when I don't use the phone for a few hours. Mobile data comes back after I place a call. For now, the workaround is to call my voicemail and hang up.
    5) The clock can lead or lag so the alarm is not very reliable. This may be related to problem 4.

    I backed up my apps using Titanium Backup before I flashed the new ROM. I also made a nandroid backup using TWRP.
    Following the instruction on the 3rd post, I flashed the following using TWRP2.7.1.0_multi_v4:
    cm-11-20141030-EXPERIMENTAL-ext4_os2sd_bigsuperROM-thunderc.zip
    pa_gapps-modular-pico-4.4.4-20150117-signed.zip
    pa_facilitator-pico-4.4.4-20141114-signed.zip

    I have some programming experience but none with Android. Please let me know what debug info I can provide to help solve these problems.

    Thanks again!

    Oh, there's one more problem I forgot to mention. It's more of a nuisance but maybe it's a symptom of a more serious problem.

    6) The phone turns itself on when I plug the charger into a turned-off phone. I get the LG screen followed by the Cyanogenmod spin like a normal boot. I don't get the battery charging screen I used to get with the Virgin Mobile stock ROM.

    Hi Kameron, most of your issues are covered in earlier posts. I'll try to help before bigsupersquid returns:

    1) Camera has a known issue with focus, where it crashes/freezes. Bigsupersquid disabled autofocus as a workaround so photos would still work with infinite distance.

    2) I'm running 9/6 build and my video camera works, however I've heard reports the video camera has been broken since in a later build. I am staying with 9/6 for now as I'd like a working camera.

    3) When this happens to me, I press and hold the back button for a few seconds. This often dismisses/kills whatever that held the screen and wakes to the lock screen. You may need to turn on the kill option in settings first for this to work.

    4) I don't use mobiledata, although I believe this could be a power saving feature. You may be able to use a Tasker or Llama automation script to auto-cycle the mobiledata connection. (which is what I do for my Wifi connection)

    5) I've heard clock lag is bad with cell connection. I'm on wifi and have not seen this issue. Having an automation script to wake up the phone every half hour or so and to keep mobile connected may help.

    6) Screen-on charging is a side-effect of this particular ROM, and according to bigsupersquid this behavior would stay for the foreseeable future.

    Hope this helps.
