Default Ally help irc channel

****To clairfy what IRC is and the purpose. IRC is called Internet Relay Chat. Basically a chatroom. I have set this up to help people that have a problem or need help with something. We usually have more than one person try to assist so its group help. Which also means you would get answers faster. But it's more than just a support chat. It's there for fellow ally or any android based phone owner to come chat and have some fun.

Ally IRC channel is located on the Freenode network, info:

Server: irc.freenode.net (or any freenode server you wish)
Channel: #ally
Webclient: LG Ally IRC WebClient

So far the Ally IRC channel is going good. We have a few coming and going. Everyone so far agrees that its a much easier form of communication. Never know who will be in there.

For those that do not know IRC means Internet Relay Chat. There are plenty of irc networks out there. Think of it as a chat room but instead of calling it chat rooms they call it channels.

Hello! I'm new and I'm having fun playing with my Ally toy.

How do I flash to a new radio? I'm having some reception issues that are leading to poor internet.

More details: Can't open chat.. says I'm not registered... I'm new and lost on this site!!!

Also what's up with this 50% bug?! My battery is shot!

I'm curious about getting a new ROM for my phone since I just rooted it. Would like something that could help improve the speed of my internet. I think there is an app that has to do with over-running the CPU for that?! Not sure...

The new radio is flashed when you intall the latest VZB update. As for your other questions i can answer them much faster. Look at my origianl post on this thread and join our irc (chat) channel. You will get answers much faster.

i think that means your nick contains characters that arent allowed in irc. I'm honestly not sure. Just try a differnet nick.

Okay i figured it out. It's because the nick cannot start with numbers. So just change it so the numbers aren't starting the nick and you should be good.

I recently rooted my ally and installed velocity .3 along with the ffffff theme...When I did this I was pretty new and didnt create a backup of the stock rom. I eventually want to sell the phone and might need to take the rom and themes and everything off, and go back to stock...How would I do this? Thanks

Laugh Thanks so much!!!

Dots, I want to say that I am REALLY appreciative of all the help you have provided so I could learn how to root my Ally and get A2SD up and running. I know it would have been much harder to figure out without your guidance and encouragement along the way. There is so much information about rooting out there it is monumental to sift through. And some of it is pretty much outdated now. One downside to forums I guess. All the posts tend to hang around even as their topics evolve over time.

Thanks!!!

I've already got one setup on freenode. Channel: #ally

webchat for those that do not have IRC clients.

Ally IRC Webchat client

Here's another webclient

wsIrc Ally IRC

Just change the Username to whatever you want and clock login.

Update**

For those of you who have the new Phandroid app. You can connect to the ally irc channel from it. Once your sucessfully connect to the network click menu and press "Join Channel" then add #ally. and click OK. Here's a screenshot.

Hey, Dots, did you notice the battery status icon in the image you posted? Talk about "subliminal messages".

I see the "average age" of some of the members on the chat hasn't changed much since my first encounter with IRC nearly 30 years ago, which was why I never spent much time with it. It is a shame something can't be done to boot those sophomoric punks off the chat permanently. I was really pleased to be able to get the help I did those couple days when I rooted the Ally, but from what I am seeing today I don't know how anyone could carry on an intelligent dialog with all that stuff flying.

Is there a way to block certain members from appearing on the screen?

You would have to use an actual irc client to be ableo to use /ignore Most actual clients (not the web ones) support it.

And why in heck would you ask a completely unrelated question in a thread about Ally help irc channel?

Try making a little effort on forum use and etiquette, for crying out loud!

Good call! People need to understand, to receive proper help the fastest, they need to put stuff in the right areas. It's cool though. He's new to this.

Well, if the Ally info really will apply for your phone, I would suggest you install ROM Manager from the Market, which installs ClockworkMod Recovery, then "flash alternate recovery" (at the bottom of ROM Mgr. window) to using Amon-RA Recovery. Then you can use Amon-RA to create nandroid backups. If you plan to put your apps on the SD card (using A2SD) then Amon-RA is the way to go, because it can access the EXT partition you will need on the SD card for that. ClockworkMod makes nandroids too, but it can't access the EXT partition.

However, be advised that these things discussed on this Ally forum are specifically meant for the Ally and no other phone. So they may not work correctly for you.

wsIrc Ally IRC seems to no longer work
"Closing Link: server.nowhere-else.org (*** Banned )"

Something about being banned from freenode for spam I think?

If the person sending the pictures, or if you, are using SMS or MMS to send/receive them, AND either of you have applied the Velocity 1.1 update without "installing from scratch" it may be the issue being reported on the Velocity 1.1 thread regarding problems with messaging and pictures. If so there are details in the thread on what to do to fix the problem (involves re-installing Velocity 1.1 rather than "upgrading" to it).

If you have not "rooted" the Ally and installed the custom ROM Velocity, then my previous suggestion doesn't apply to you. Sorry for any confusion.

Death2all posted it a while back as a way to force the phone onto the network and update that stuff. Ive had other issues that dialing *228 option 1 and 2 didnt fix but *22899 did.

You did not answer KingofGreen's question. Is your Ally rooted? Which ROM are you using, and what version number?

Due to circumstances I am unwilling to discuss, I am taking a permanent hiatus from the room. I wish everyone good luck and I enjoyed helping people root

EDIT: After some reasonable thought, I have decided to go back to the room. I hope to see you guys there
