    Hmm. I'm kinda lost. Simplify what I would have to do?
    newer software, use OS2SD. CM7, use multirom. instructions for it are in the linked thread from my last post. if you boot from a card install with multirom, its system and data and cache "partitions" (they're really bind-mounted directories but Android doesn't see the difference) can be oversized just like with the OS2SD.
    multirom won't run with jb on up (maybe not ics either, I forget) because of security problems I'll bet. it patches the boot partition to pre-emp init.

    Okay so I flash that recovery and do what with the v11?

    Sorry about the noobisms but this kinda thing is completely and utterly new to me.

    Appreciate the description. I, too, was wondering how OS2SD worked in general. I've read through the OS2SD thread on the Optimus S forum... I'm still trying to figure out: other than boot.img, does installing OS2SD make any other changes to the internal memory? If not, is it possible to have, say, the Harmonia utility ROM on the internal, and KitKat on the card (just boot without the card to boot Harmonia)? Thanks! OS2SD seems like a fascinating idea to me.

    switch to the other thread and I'll help with that. it's been long and long since I used it but seem to remember it's pretty easy.

    yes, you can keep whatever you want on internal, and just restore the boot.img that belongs to it, to boot from there. if you have an OS2SD on the card at the same time, all you have to do is swap the boot.img and reboot to switch. advanced restore under backup and restore in the recovery will restore just the boot.img for you out of a backup.

    So is OS2SD better than Mount2SD?
    If so I'm gonna wait until you update this ROM ^_^

    I've never run mounts2sd or any other link2 method to benchmark, so I'm not sure. I like the lack of extra scripts in the OS2SD. The OS2SD upload is done. I haven't yet made a new release for internal yet.

    new internal build uploading.
    just barely fits skinny gapps and CrossBreeder on /system with about 1Mb to spare. Probably wouldn't get both on an Optimus S,
    reads Virgin Mobile now instead of "ROAMING INDICATOR OFF" since I found where that was coming from. Missing overlay.
    Messaging settings still FC. Null pointer exception... haven't traced down why yet.

    The GPS doesn't seem to be working in the cm-11-20140219-OS2SD-thunderc.zip build - can't turn Location on in settings. This was working in the previous release.

    Was pretty sure mine did... but I shift test builds so often it's hard to remember if I tested that. it definitely does on the 20140220. My accelerometer jams after sleep for several reboots before smoothing out when testing builds... maybe the gps is similar. I always seem to have to go turn off location in settings though.

    Still waiting for a more roomier update. Hate the phone constantly rebooting automatically and low system mem.

    Other note Google+ from the play store won't work on the previous update 0217. It would either say "package file invalid" or it force closes if installed. What is the reason behind this?

    Google+ is constantly trying to work on their app. Package File Invalid is a common Android bug but it force closing all the time (like every few seconds) possibly the ROM possibly the app possibly the site, I've learned that they finally figured out how to update the app without updating the apk, and when that happens some things go wrong.

    My app is working well so it's either because they're adding some KitKat friendly code or the ROM doesn't like Google+ (at least not right now) for no reason whatsoever it could start randomly working. That's happened to me various times. Reflashing and downloading it first seems to speed up the compatibility process for no reason.

    So should I wait for an update to try it vs driving myself crazy reflashing and redownloading g+ over and over ?

    Also, the mobile website works perfectly and now has Communities finally. Just can't mention people right now which I think is stupid.

    I mainly use the mobile website. Only the app for mentioning.

    I think that if you really want to get the most out of your Optimus V you should really switch to OS2SD. I've tested both and the OS2SD just works much better. Also you don't have to push apps to your SD using link2sd or whatever you use which is always buggy because everything is already on your sd .

    So go invest in a class 10 micro sd, you won't notice any slower loads speeds and you can make the size of /data, /system, and /cache as big your heart desires.

    A big shoutout to superbigsquid, skinbark, techvendetta and android community for keeping this awesome phone alive.

    Hi,
    not see a lot of time, sorry for my noobs
    I am againe trying to flash Optimus V/S ROMs to my Vortex, but all I can to apply, just fix rotation by replacing some files from ICS ROM
    When I saw working KK, was try to install it, but problem got with custom recovery, my Vortex do not work with recovery size more than 5mb, it goes out of memory and as result black screen, entering fastboot. Some solution was found by me installed twrp-LS670-test6-2.3.3.0. This gives me stable boot/reboot and possibility to flash your cm-11-20140203-UNOFFICIAL-thunderc.zip + Gaaps( all earliest aborted to flash ). As result same like with all Optimus V/S ROMS before, rotation mirrowed, no 3G andpossibility to do call, send sms. Also shown a lot of free memory, used only 57, even with gaaps, but this not true, as after rebooting or installing any program, memory go down, and rom freez. Reboot => wipe, all ok.
    My ask if can someone help me to adapt this ROM to my LG Vortex ( VS660)? I am ready to act as tester. But have no knowledges to do all by myself((((

    aka you'd like a port.

    Yep, smth like this. Before BobZhome do CM7, Quattrimus do ICS, they also do similar ROMS for Optimus V/S and Vortex too. BY the way, Quattrimus ROM had bugs with rotation, and this was fixed by installing bigsupersquid 3.0.8 kernel. ( new bugs came with this Kernel, standart for ICS, bigsupersquid indicated in his kernel post about)

    P.S. and I have no normal recovery to install KK((((

    For os2sd you need the os2sd version, use squids latest os2sd build its further down than the normal builds on his page.

    Before installing you'll need to install my recovery, back up your sdcard to your computer, then go to advance > partition sdcard in the recovery.

    Then you'll need to copy the rom to the sdcard.
    Currently my recovery has a bug with mounting usb storage which will be fixed in a day or so.
    So you either need to use an adapter or your internal rom to put the zip file on the sdcard after partitioning.
    After that you can just flash it from recovery and you'll have the latest in optimus v technology. ^.^

    BONUS: If before you install the new rom, you make a backup of boot, you can use advanced restore to restore just your boot to load back into internal os and vice versa.
