Arrow STOCK ROM Releases | All 3 Firmwares - 4 Versions Each | Stock Apps | Stripper Application

LG Connect 4G ROM Release Thread


**WARNING**
Exercise EXTREME caution when performing modifications to any type of ROM. While these are backups of other individuals ROMs, and they are tested there is no way that we can prevent you from causing an issue during the process of using these.
If you don't know what they are, or how to use them then do your research first. Myself, and the Orginal Uploaders of the ROMs listed here take NO responsibility for any damage caused to your phone, operating environment, system files, sd card files, etc. when performing these modifications. In other words, you assume FULL responsibility for any, and all actions incurred from utilizing these files.


This thread will contain (after they are acquired or donated by other users to contribute to this thread) all available STOCK ROM types for the LG Connect. The purpose of this is to allow a centralized location where all the stock variances will have a single residence to allow easier finding without cluttering our sub-section with requests for things that are/have already been listed.

These are ONLY Stock / Rooted / De-Bloated / Stripped - The Custom ROMs need to stay in their respective thread as that is NOT the purpose of this at all.


========INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS========

To install these ROMs please follow the instructions listed below VERY carefully. These instructions assume you're using Clockwork Mod Recovery. If you're not, then please go read on it. It's a necessity for this type of swap to work.

1. Download the ROM you wish to use.
2. Extract using 7zip, winrar etc.. (on pc - it's faster that way - typically)
3. Put the extracted folder into the "Backup" folder inside "./SDCard/Clockwork Mod/Backup" on your phone.
4. Download ROM Manager (If you don't already have it.
5. Open ROM Manager, and select "Reboot into Recovery." Wait on phone to boot into ClockworkMod Recovery.
6. Perform a FULL DATA wipe (Otherwise known as a Factory Wipe)
7. Select Wipe Cache.
8. Select "Advanced"
9. Wipe the "Battery Stats" - (Helps maintain Battery life appropriately with new ROMs)
10. Wipe the "Dalvik Cache."
11. Go into the Backup/Recovery Menu
12. Select Recovery
13. Select the Folder that you just placed within ClockWork Recovery Backup Folder
14. Wait on Restore to complete (It will notify you when finished.)
15. Select "Reboot System Now."
16. Wait on the device to reboot and go to your home screen.
17. Reboot after you are running the ROM and at the home screen. (THIS IS NECESSARY AND MANDATORY AS WELL AS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!)

**WARNING** These ROMs are STRIPPED! If you get the (process com.lge.autorun) has stopped issue, or Error 921 while downloading an app restart the phone, and it should work fine! ( I didn't notice this error and did try several methods to both invoke, and prevent it, but you never really know do you.)

Several apps which people MAY find "necessary" have been removed from these and WILL be necessary for certain aspects to work. However, in light of that, I did this for the "gaming concious" individual that uses their phone more as a portable media center than a phone such as myself.


The following Apps have been uninstalled from the Stripped ROMs:
They're listed in the EXACT Same order as they are set in the folder when sorted by Name Alphabetically (easier to track this way if you wanted a certain one )

Although the author listed it as ZV9 I'm using it at this very second, and it is listed as ZV8 in the "about phone" menu. This is the reason I believe it to be such. Is this just an issue with the software revision label?

I have a refurb model that is running zv9 (I know for fact) but the about phone also reads zv8. A few people on here have refurbs all read the same too from what I've seen. So to be able to get a zv8 would be dope cause ideally the updater tool should work on the OG zv8 ROM. I'm gonna need to check this out either way lol.

Okay, thanks for the info. I'll set it into the ZV9 slot for now, until we confirm otherwise.
I'm downloading a few tools I used to use on game clients for disassembling, and am going to take a crack at finding out where the firmware links are being polled from in the LG Updater. Wish me luck.
With all luck on my side, I should be able to get base revisions for ZV9 and ZVa. hopefully anyways.

Looking at it in the LG Updater it's stating v8 as well, so how do you know that it's v9?

Check to see if it lets you update it. My updater tool reads mine as zv8 too but says I'm upgraded to the latest firmware already when i try to update it. A true zv8 should let the update go through. My cousin has the connect with an OG zv8 on it, I'll try and pull a copy of his ROM to test out this weekend.

Checking out some decompiled scripts in the updater's dll, and I saw this...

db 'NTT Docomo request - Test IMEI check version between server version and phone version',0

They block us from being able to even trick the software by constantly reflecting the IMEI from our phones.
it's going to be impossible to even trick the software into thinking that we DESERVE the update when on ZV8 from a recovery.

In other words, this thread is the ONLY hope that we have to do any type of post lg updater downgrades, OR upgrades!!!
Dear LG...SCREW YOU!

Talk to your cousin, and let him get you the recovery. It's our ONLY hope at having the real ZV8 as far as I can see. If necessary I'll pay him ten bucks for it. I know it's not a lot, but I've got a newborn, and a wife that can't breastfeed because her job won't let her pump, and formula's fkn expensive for a three month old that eats six to eight times a day...

Yeah, I read it before, just didn't remember you were the one that did it. It's weird that the OTA reads as zv8, and also zva at the same time. Sounds like metro fudged something up (there's a shock)

Yea buddy formula its way expensive, I've got 3 kids and I'm soooo glad they're eating real foods now. You won't have to pay for anything homie, I set his phone up with the root and CWM he'll have no problem letting me get the ROM. What I'll do is just take a stock nandroid from his recovery and flash it to my phone and do a factory reset and that should give us a zv8. If that doesn't work I'll just factory reset his device nandroid that then we'll have one that way. Either way I'll get it this weekend.

I've got the copy of zv8 now, my cousin's phone is a true zv8. The LG updater tool reads it as ZV8 and will allow the update to ZV9 (or ZVA most likely). I'll put it in my phone then flash it, do a factory reset and see if my phone is recognized the same way and post results and an upload link here shortly.

When you upload it, do so via dropbox so I can add it to mine and just throw the link from my drop box. When you provide a dropbox link people can "add the file to their dropbox" and it creates an on-server copy that's almost instant, so it saves download, and re-upload time. The reason I want to do it this way is because I have folders set up containing each copy so there's a folder for zv8, zv9, and zvA each will contain links to the stock, stock-rooted, stock -rooted-debloated, and strock-rooted-stripped versions.

I'm almost done uploading the stock apps too. This is a rar containing ALL of the apps that are removed in the "Stripped version" in case people need it. It's just under 100mb and also has the odex files in case someone encounters errors due to missing data.

So I got the rom flashed it onto my phone, which pretty much made my phone my cousins phone (or so it seemed). I hooked my device up to the lg updater tool and it read my phone as already updated still. So I guess just by flashing a rom that has a different version update doesn't let you bypass the lg tool. If you want I'll still do a factory reset of the zv8 copy I have and upload it so you can have a copy.

No, it will not let you update anymore once you do initially.
I listed the reason for this somewhere, but I don't remember where.
Anyways,t he cause of it, and the ENTIRE reason I developed this thread, and requested the sticky is because of the way LG coded the application.

I disassembled the code for it the other day, and took a REALLY extensive look at it, and it turns out that when you update the phone the IMEI and Serial of the phone are turned into LG's server as well as your phone number, and administrator details for the phone. This essentially allows LG to "block" the update feature until you get another phone, which if you do more than likely be the OTA ZV9 and then you can upgrade to ZVA again, but there's not a way that I have found yet to disable this function.

The way they programmed the app it literally locks the application until a request is sent back from their server stating what software you last upgraded to. Unfortunately it's not a php pull/get system, because if it were, I could have coded a workaround script in hours and we'd be good to go.

This is the entire reason that it's necessary for us to get every available rom listed on this thread. To help the devs figure out how to get tethering to work inside the rom, to help people have the version that suits them best, and to help the community stay clean of requests for things that are already here

I added "stripped" version of the existing rom today which has about 14 more apps than the normal "debloat" removed to further enhance battery life, and memory on the phone, so hopefully that'll prove useful for some.
I tested the phone with a solid reboot, home launcher initialization, and launched the play store, and attempted a download, EVERY time I uninstalled an application, and have noticed NO issues on MY phone, but that doesn't guarantee anything, and it's for that reason I also included the stock apps with their corresponding odex files.

LAWL... Sorry to hear that you had issues with that backup. Once you do the ZVA restoration, backup all contents of your SD Card to your computer, and then go into the rom via regular boot, and open rom manager.
After that, go to "boot into recovery" and when you get to recovery select "Factory Wipe (full wipe, whatever.) Then select Wipe Cache right underneath that. Then go into advanced, and wipe the dalvik cache, and then select reboot recovery.
As SOON as the phone reboots into recovery mode, use the CWM Delooper to flash the stock recovery mode back onto the phone then reboot via cwm control.

After that when the phone powers down remove the battery immediately to "break" the power down cycle, then pop it back in, and hold the volume down, power key 'till the recovery screen appears telling you to hit "power" to confirm. Hit power twice, and let it work it's magic.

After that you should have an "unlocked" ZVA.

I'm going to do this later, and update my ROM Release thread with the version I get unlocked, and set up.
It may take about 24-48 hours though.

Don't understand how the scene could be dead. Broken out rom just came out what like 2 ˝ weeks ago and version 2 is in the works, PG is working on cm7/cm9/plague kernel, I wrote a cwm touch/aio easy install script last week, and other stuff is going on.

What do you expect, daily updates and ROMs? Guess you better get cracking on doing some work yourself.

Not trying to insult, it just burns my ass when people say that kinda shit, especially when they themselves have nothing constructive to add to the pot. Sorry to go off topic, carry on guys.

I do appreciate the collection of stock ROMs dracconus, awesome

I think that's mines. I just uploaded my personal backup. Should I reupload a factory reset version?

Wow, Always nice to see someone with such stature defend the minimalistic amount of help I can afford to give at my current level :P
It's true that there is a LOT of work that goes into even the simplest things for android.
For example, the "stripped rom:" I tested every uninstalled app by creating a backup, then uninstalling it, then rebooting the phone, and testing both the stock launcher, third party launchers, notification bars, the play store, and numerous 3d, and 3d games to make sure that no one had any issues with it (of course I can't detect, or prevent everything.)
The stripped version took almost a pure 12 hours of testing to get it as empty as possible, and for someone to come on here and throw that in my face as if it's nothing is really ****ed, so I really do appreciate the compliments, and you having my Back Chiwen.

as for the ZVA that you uploaded Air don't sweat it. I'm going to flash it tonight, and remove the pass, then re-up to my DB and get it ready for the stripped, and such versions.
Once I release the stripped, and debloated of all the ROMs I'll begin doing the de-rooting since it's a process that requires NOT having root, which all the rest of the versions need, so it's kinda backwards :P

Thanks to all who appreciate, and to those that don't **** off and go do your own studying like I did. maybe you'll realize how complicated it is to even make a freaking widget that says "hi" when you press it and stop having your head in your ass
Sincerely,
Dracconus

[size=2]READ THIS IT IS IMPORTANT IF YOU DOWNLOADED V1 OF THE STRIPPER[/size2]

I apologize to anyone that has downloaded the Stripper as 6/11/12 @ 3:54am -6GMT (US-Central)
There were a few issues with it which is rather odd considering that I SWEAR it removes the same exact apps as I did by hand.
This issue causes sound to go mute, and the Home Button to incorrectly function.
The issue also causes the lge.autorun error on every boot.

If you have used this, and are suffering from these issues then PLEASE don't be alarmed, your phone isn't broken it's just suffering from a mild case of Dracconus' Late night delusion.

Until this is resolved I've taken the link down, so to anyone that reads this, and sees a link for the stripper please DO NOT be alarmed, it's not a non-functional version. It will be the good one when a link is returned to it's home.

I am working to resolve this issue as soon as possible, and when I do I will re-upload a NEW WORKING TESTED version of the stripper as well as a stripped ZVA.

I appreciate your patience, and apologize for any inconvenience this might have been as it was something I had no preconceived notions of recollection towards.
Thanks, and I'm sorry;
Dracconus

Ok, so like I mention on the other thread. I had updated to zva then broken out rom. Im trying to get back to ZV9. You had told me to go to this link, follow the installation instruction and download zv9 link. I did exactly what it said but again im still on ZVA. Am I missing a step?

What are you looking at that tells you you're on ZVA? The phones Settings/About Phone area, or the LG Updater?
Because as I've stated numerous times before the LG Updater logs your phones information into a server when you update, and no matter WHAT patch you're on CURRENTLY, it'll show that you're on the last one that it updated you to, which is the reason we can't use the LG Updater to do anything unless we get a new phone (LG fkn sucks.)

If the PHONE is saying - in it's settings - that you're still on ZVA then you are INDEED missing something.
hit me back, and let me know what's going on. we'll figure it out, even if I have to walk you through it step by step via posts :P

There's literally no physical/logical/or explainable way that you're on ZVA if you properly flashed ZV9, or 8.

Go back through it again, take it nice, and slow, and pace yourself. Sometimes we just get ahead of ourselves.

Make sure that before you do ANYTHING once you're in CWM you factory wipe, format cache, go to advanced and format dalvik, and wipe battery stats. And make sure that you use ROM Manager to GET to CWM. Using the stock factory (vol dwn + Pwr) will screw you over.

THEN go through the steps to install the ROM that you want.
Shouldn't have any problems with it if you do that.

Yes, I did 3 or 4 times and it still says ZVA. When u say "format" , do u mean wipe?
Maybe you should get someone else with my problem and test it. I updated to zva through LG tool and flashed broken out rom.

Yup. you need to do the "factory wipe" option in CWM, then Wipe Data, then under the advanced menu wipe dalvik, and wipe battery stats.

That is what I did. Still no luck. This is odd. Maybe its like what you said

"LG Updater logs your phones information into a server when you update, and no matter WHAT patch you're on CURRENTLY, it'll show that you're on the last one that it updated you to, which is the reason we can't use the LG Updater to do anything unless we get a new phone (LG fkn sucks.)"

Do you think Im on ZV9 but it just says ZVA on my phone?

Then I'm officially stumped. I know for a fact that the flashes WORK, just not sure why the value won't change. Doesn't really fkn matter tho does it :P
Long as zv8 has tether, zv9 has broken tether, and ZV8 improves performance that's all that matters :P

We know for a fact that the ZV8 that we're getting is the real ZV8 Gadget. We're getting it off a phone that has never even had 9 OTA, or via updater.

Link removed as requested by op.

Here you go, Stock ZV8 rooted/cwm/somewhat debloated.
I believe before I did the reset I had previously (in my cousins phone) deleted pretty much every metro app save metro web & metro app store. All the metro apps can be re d/l'd via the metro app store so no harm no foul (lol). All of the LG apps are still there, the device has not been setup, I did however had to install ROM manager, metamorph, and root explorer to change back the bootanime, change back to stock battery meter, and save the new rom. Other than that it should be pretty close to outta the box rom. Hope you get good use out of it.

it's no biggie. The zva, and zv9 restored it just fine on my phone. The only rom I've ever had that didn't have it was broken out.

I'm going to dl that zv8 here in just a few, and test it out.
Then I'll install the whole stock set with ADB, and then create the stripped, and "properly" debloated version (just so that the apps match up - no offense or anything, just don't want someone to go from zva debloated to zv8 and be like "how come I no got dis nemoar!"
HEHE

Thanks for getting this though bro, I really appreciate your assisting build this thread!

I'm almost done fixing the stripper file too so people can strip their own rom instead of having to download a stripper version.

That's pretty sweet! I'm thinking of flashing a zvA just to see what all these new apps are and see how bad the battery overheating issue on it (I heard they sorta fixed that). And this community has been nothing but good to me, so anyway I can contribute I will (when available) I got no prob helping out.

I believe before I did the reset I had previously (in my cousins phone) deleted pretty much every metro app save metro web & metro app store. All the metro apps can be re d/l'd via the metro app store so no harm no foul (lol). All of the LG apps are still there, the device has not been setup, I did however had to install ROM manager, metamorph, and root explorer to change back the bootanime, change back to stock battery meter, and save the new rom. Other than that it should be pretty close to outta the box rom. Hope you get good use out of it.
swweeett this is the true zv8, i use quick settings and yes the hidden wifi-hotspot works! thats odd, that the sw version in the about phone doesnt change. well as long it works!

I'm certain that's an issue with how CWM handles "updates" on firmware revs; and nothing more.

I'm going to start dl'ing it and prepping it now. so the different versions will be up asap!

What do you expect, daily updates and ROMs? Guess you better get cracking on doing some work yourself.

Not trying to insult, it just burns my ass when people say that kinda shit, especially when they themselves have nothing constructive to add to the pot. Sorry to go off topic, carry on guys.

I do appreciate the collection of stock ROMs dracconus, awesome
Sorry to offend you boss or anyone I didnt state that right I appologize greatly. As well if you go to the first page of the all root forums for co nnect you will see if I have contributed or not or just being a new bit-- user. And trust me sir I have been watching lots of youtube video which fails to explain how to really create a rom, all they do is take others rom and add some stuff which by Pkayfulgod's word "dirty port" and I dont want to do that. And the guide I ahve read I didnt get chance to perform, first needs linux skill which I dont have then have to download linux with my slow ass internet lol. I will download it today and see if I can actually do anything, atleast trying and failing is better then not trying. And the only hours I get to use my computer is after 11:30 PM everyday lol because I have to work I have to support my family and others are always needing me for help strange.
