Lightbulb [2.3.4 ROMS] ALLY AOSP GingerBreak & BionxCore

For what it's worth Ally owners (Active or Un-Active) Here are my 2 latest Gingerbread based roms for the LG Ally.

For Unactivated/Active Allys
**Warning- These firmwares have not been fully tested umung users and have been tested on a Faulty Ally Device,I am not responsible for any damage done to your Ally "IF ANY" if the firmware happens to malfunction on install or just plainly by your stupidity ^^0. These Projects have been tested by me before release so, chances of these roms ruining your device are slim to none. If you plan on flashing these roms for testing and Use, Make sure you make a NAND backup using your recovery and Make sure you wipe your whole device before flashing.**

*Note*
Altho unstable, I do encourage active ally owners "those who still use their device for calling and texting" to try these roms so I can acknowledge future owners or flashers that they are dependable as far as using on a daily driver. I have remastered GNM's work and have gone beyond my limits to help Ally owners to gain a Gingerbread rom for their Ally. The following software uses LG Enlighten drivers and software to promote its productivity and operating while using previous obsolete masterpieces of past developers using this day and age scripts to hinder power for an old device.

Let us begin...

--Gingerbreak--

A pure bare bones gingerbread rom for the Ally. I pictured what I could of what the gingerbread update for the ally would look like and built it off of imagination and the help of cyanogen based sources.
Bugs present in this build are as follows...Screen- when the system goes into standby or locks, the screen has an issue of coming out of standby and stays in standby; giving it a 5-10 second brief before pressing the lock button may allow it to resume itself out of standby. Sound- as the sound hardware works, we have had issues where the device will not send out audio to devices; for instance head jacks. Root- This firmware is not rooted, altho it proceeds to say it is, a bug prevents the system from giving privileges to applications needing root. Verizon service to Active Users- The PRL and Baseband are very buggy and performance with your service and 3g ranges constantly; another words making this rom not usefull for active users. Active users have tried but with no success in service.

-CHANGELOG-
Remastered GNM's kernel and boot image from gretel
Removed most of cyanogen software and ADW ui
Rebuilt android settings for stock feeling
Stock LG theme
Stock Android launcher
Stock Bare Bones Android Applications
Added Smart Boot Scripts from Bionx
Cleaned up cyanogen mess...
Bugs present in Baseband/Driver/Hardware
LG splash image
Extra permissions added for performance



--Bionx Core--


While waiting on my next device to be delivered and while I wait on other services...I prepared myself for the upgrade to gingerbread giving myself a base to start on for future devices. I present to Ally owners the Next build of Bionx, Core.
Bionx Core is based off of the Cyanogen development so features of Cyanogen are present in this build, which can be accessed from the updated Bionx Application. The changes in this build can be found in the changelog viewer in the Bionx Application.
Bugs present in this build as follows...Screen- The same bug accurs as in gingerbreak however it can be fixed by navigating to the Bionx application and pressing Display and unchecking the Screen off Animation. Audio- Same bug persist as in Gingerbreak, working to correct. Seems to be present in the LIB folder of the system. Verizon Service to Active Users- I do not know what service is provided to users who test this firmware on an active ally. I have done multiple things to this build to provide the best service to users who attempt to test this on the verizon network. I changed the fingerprint to 2.3 using the LG Enlightens ID, Ive updated the PRL libs and changed the build.prop to work correctively on the network. On my testers Ally, it showed 4 full (non-fully connected) bars of service. What kind of service is unknown...

**NOTES FOR ACTIVE ALLY OWNERS**
I have received word as of to date, that this rom does in-fact support texting and calling through the verizon network...As this was a goal for past developers on the Ally. Please use at own risk and knowing that some or many calls and text may be missed. I will continue to update this rom as long as Ally users test this rom and give me results of use and an occasional bug report in this forum.



RESULTS MAY VERY UPON DEVICE/LOCATION/FIRMWARE VERSION/DEVICE SETTINGS
The PRL and Baseband on our testing device was the following
PRL- 52341
signal strength- -1073741913dbm 0 asu
Baseband- M76XX-TSNCJPLYM-60401001


**To view this roms changelog, please navigate to the Bionx application and click on CHANGELOG.**

The Gingerbreak Rom is initially open for any other development if you are interested in starting a development career with your ally. I do not care if you use it for your own project or if you want to add onto it. No permission needed ^_^
It is usefull if you want to rebuild the Cyanogen firmware or Create a Miui port which I tried but kept getting undesired results. I will not be help responsible for any more projects on the Ally, its an open door for someone else.

If you are new to flashing roms on your ally...Wrong sub-forum for you...
If you plan on testing these for me...I know whats wrong as far as bugs but if you find more, please tell me.
If you plan on installing them...Wipe everything off your device using the recovery.

Yes that firmware is, so is bionx core. Bionx core is a fancier version of cm7 for ally. Just with a few features missing.

Miui ports booted, however i kept gtn force closes when the miui launcher was touched or anything for that matter. Was a matter of a mis written script which im not experienced in.

Well it wasnt just the launcher, anything miui coded would start then if u accessed something, it would reboot or trash itself.

How is the firmware btw, i put it together in a days time

the Firmware is Great! its pretty fast, btw what is launcher is on the Core? im liking the Moto Theme, very nice. Apps seem to run faster on 2.3 than 2.2, its awesome

The text in the status bar is black, kinda hard to read when you have the Market open in the background, blends in. doesnt bother me that much. Besides the Audio problem, liking the rom!

From what I see so far in the screen shots, I think I'm gonna give Core a try. It's gonna have to wait until summer though, so that I can fully decide whether I want to upgrade to a new phone or keep my little Ally with Core (I'm eligible for upgrade in July this year).

If my service still remains, I'm gonna keep my Ally with Core. Otherwise it's a new phone altogether for me.

However, would it still be possible to switch back to a 2.2.2 ROM like Bionx or Velocity even if I flash Core?

yep, u can still switch back to 2.2.2, i just made a nandroid backup since i hate reinstalling everything .... i think u wouldnt get that good of a service if use a 2.3 rom ... where i usually get Full bars i get 1 or 2 at max.

I still think it would be kind of cool if he tried the 2.3.4 ROM to see if it actually works for an activated ally, service wise

well i dont know if its exactly fully functional yet, but there is definitely service. i cant seem to get service in my room at all anymore (used to have enough to receive texts and what not) but outside i had 2 bars and could call and text fine. maybe there's just a few kinks that need to be ironed out on the radio.

alright so i dont know why but for some reason it doesnt work some boots and other boots it does. so it isnt every time, thought it was but it just was getting texts and such from when i shut it down and restarted.

So both time i got it to call i did this:
Turn on airplane - rebooted
Turn off airplane - rebooted
and one final reboot

now its at the point where i can send and receive texts without having issues. Will logcats help? If so, I'll try to get someone like D2A to help me set up and record some

Now THAT is definitely promising. I might flash Core within the coming weeks. I'll report back with results after about a week so that I can get some time with it. I'm still active so we'll see how it goes.

edit: Great update to the OP. . .but I know I'm definitely flashing in the coming weeks. Possibly this weekend, so I can report back by next week Saturday.

ok so from what i've been seeing from using core for about 3-4 days... the 3g will only work while connected to wifi or when turning the phone off/on (reboots will give me messages that i missed but only sometimes). so is there something thats causing the 3g to only turn on while wifi is on?

Do you have to be connected to a WiFi network for 3G to work, or does it just have to be turned on?

oh and if 3g ever stops working for those of you who are testing it. its probably because it lost service and it wont try to look for service for some reason. so just reboot in a different spot where you normally have service and you should be good to go.

So it's non-functional if it's not connected to WiFi? 'Coz that would kinda suck, since my area is nearly devoid of WiFi (a lot of Kauai Internet users where I live still hardwire their networks. . .and my own house doesn't even have Internet access, save for my Ally).

Okay, so I (briefly) tested BionixCore. It seems to have similar issues to all the other 2.3 rom attempts. In my test, I could make calls going out, which worked perfectly, but would not end after the call was over. I could send a text and have it be received, however it still said "sending..." on my side. I could NOT receive any calls or texts in my test. 3g seemed to be working okay though.

Makes me wonder if this problem isn't actually in the radio/radio driver, but in apps communicating *with* the radio. The radio has shown it can work *when it wants to*, we just need to figure out why it won't receive anything (or if it does, what is ignoring this information).

Just adding my two cents. Need my phone to be a functional phone though, so I'm flashing away for now. Defiantly interested in seeing how this progresses though. Reflashing makes me sad because this rom looks so awesome. My upgrade isn't until June, so let's have a working 2.3 radio just in time for me to switch. XD

I like this rom alot, but when i press end and then go to unlock the phone nothing shows up. It vibrates and it works like nothing was the matter but the screen doesn't show anything. It will then work afterwards, but i don't have a specif time when it does. Oh you guys are my first favorite rom developers!

That is standby mode, which is described as a bug in the above. Fix it by accessing the Bionx app and navigating to display options and uncheck the screen off animation.

I agree with what you guys are saying about communication errors with the system and applications.

Anyways, I uploaded to newer builds today. Couldn't tell with differences. Messed with communication APs in build.prop and Lib Folder.

I cant get this to be useable due to the screen issue. I have disabled animations in display but it still will not come back at all after it shuts off.

I haven't had a chance to try the newest bionix build on my ally, but I did try the other one. After changing the screen off setting, it worked pretty well. The 3g connection somehow died after a while and I had to reboot. However, it cannot function as a phone for me. I cannot receive calls or texts with it. I can send them, but I can't receive. I had to switch back to stormdroid. I'm running a rooted ally with verizon and data.

Cant believe that 2.3 is actually running on this phone. This was all it needed from the start to be a fully functioning device. Runs much smoother than 2.2 and cant seem to find any bugs. I did have a problem with the screen not wanting to wake back up but turning off the screen off animation fixed it. Thanks a lot for your work

Finally was able to download Core (since the Internet would be faster at my school than trying to download through my phone's browser over 3G). Gonna test over the next couple days, hopefully get the same result as b0bness, but without WiFi.

Installed BionixCore Build 3 on an activated Ally. These are my observations thus far

What Does not work
- MMS over wifi or 3G
- Camera button (on side of phone) does nothing

Quirks
- Screen brightness seems to be set randomly coming out of the lockscreen
- to get SMS working, I had to put it in airplane mode, reboot, then take it out
- some system fonts are hard to read (notification pulldown, menu on homescreen [the one that pops up when you hit the menu key])
- inconsistent battery icon - normal blue one when charging, Bionix style when not
- inconsistent colors of signal icons (wifi, etc). They randomly change from gray to blue
- Gmail cannot update as "package is not signed correctly"
- Virtual Keyboard is tiny in portrait mode
