    Here is your official Xionia Port xD

    Note: I do not have an Optimus V to test with. However the only difference in the entire kernel source is swapped home/menu keys and a different backlight driver. I'm 99% confident these will work as they do on the Optimus S but nothing is guaranteed. I take no responsibility for any damages. Nandroid backups are encouraged.

    Ok, so if we make a nandroid back first, can we return to the way we have it now?

    Virgin Edition of CWMA just flashes an older version of the Thunderc recovery. V 1.1.0 vs 1.2.0 that was made by getitnowmarketing a while ago.

    Sort of disappointed.. I was looking forward to CWMA. Might just flash the S version.

    Yup. Was it supposed to be something different?

    I wasn't clear. That was my expectation too and I had the same result as you.

    And now after flashing this, I can't flash the kernel from recovery. :/

    It gives me:
    E:No zip files found

    Just flash the other recovery and you'll be able to. That is what I did.

    Any of these kernels support apps2ext? This memory drops fast

    hi,

    I don't understand the differences between the kernels here, and especially the differences between "Kernel Only Edition" & "Kernel S Edition"

    Can someone explain some more? Thanks

    EDIT: i flashed this 3 kernels on my V with recovery v1.2518.4 Virgin Edition:
    # Kernel Only Edition
    # Kernel S Edition
    # Xionia + VM Stock initrd

    And these 3 kernel had the home and settings key inversed

    Yeah the clockwork recovery i'snt the clockwork recovery, its the standard 1.1 GNM recovery.

    Make sure you mount system prior to flashing the kernels or it will kill wifi since it can't flash the replacement wifi module.

    Wifi gets killed even after mounting system.

    I do see the broken accelerometer, but my menu and home keys work as they should.

    How to Install
    Most custom recovery (if not all, including mine) have a bug with the CM7 nighty's that does not properly wipe /system.
    This can leave leftover files that we had removed, which can cause trouble with the new files.
    THEREFORE please use the following method to flash each new NIGHTLY:
    1) Flash FormatSYSTEM.zip
    2) Then flash the current NIGHTLY
    3) flash xionia_kernel_008_virgin_bootimg_cyanogen.zip
    4) Then flash Google Apps
    5) reboot

    Accelerometer is not kernel side. I don't know what it is but I looked at all the diff from our stock kernels. It's probably from using a Optimus S ROM.

    You can use thunderc 1.2.0. If you want to install cyanogen, follow this.

    1. Wipe all user data
    2. Format system using the zip that is provided
    3. Flash the cyanogen nightly found in the Optimus S thread.
    4. Flash the Virgin CM Kernal found in this thread.
    5. Flash the gapps zip
    6. Reboot
