Im still on zv4, can I install this Rom or do I need to update? Or is there a way for me to update the kernel and rom without bricking my phone. I don't always have pc access so I have been holding out on the update.

After installing this rom, will we be notified of OTA updates. I'm assuming that at some point there will be an update from Boost. Or will we be forced to revert to ZV5 to update to KitKat or whatever version is pushed.

Hmm. Restore your nanddoid backup and reboot your phone. Once its rebooted power off your phone and boot into cwm *not init recovery* wipe data and cache and install the ROM. Once done reboot and wait 10 mins at max.

Yes you will be notified of OTA updates from boost/lg even though I'll probably spot the future OTA weeks ahead of release and let you guys know you will have to revert to stock ZV5 to update and stay on that version until the ROM is updated to work with it.

The mic issue was the main thing...ppl said they still couldn't hear me when I was talking to them. I had to literally scream to talk on the phone or use a bluetooth. I had LG call me on it and it was like night and day compared to my house phone.
Then I started having this annoying static on my calls...it sounded like crumbling potato chip bags. So LG said it might be the speaker.
Also I told them about the GPS not working too (a long shot).
But hey I figured since since they gonna look into all the other stuff, I might as well throw that in the mix too.
So I sent it priority mail yesterday so they can get it and start working on it ASAP. I'm using my old ZTE warp that we used to have back in 2011.

Ah okay. I just saw the 4 themes... Thought they were the legit kitkat ha. This rom is beautiful though.

Enables scripts on boot. That Optimizes APK'S, speed up reading of sdcard, turns off CPU1 while the phone is sleeping so that saves battery and some more.

You mean you don't boot all the way pass the Google screen and to the colorful circles? Are you just stuck at the lg screen?

Yeah thats because its removed from the ROM, i could fix it but i can't. LG screwed up something with the ZV5 update and now i cant build the fix for the settings app to remove it as an option.

Love the rom but found a bug. Doesn't matter that much but if you use pattern lock making the hidden pattern (where you tap the screen to make the pattern to show up) doesn't work when checked in settings, just keeps the regular pattern

Oh, and one more thing, has anyone tried acid audio on this rom? Or even this phone? Been meaning to try it out but haven't had the time or been able to have my phone turned off for awhile

That's because it's an LG feature but LG's lock screen is disabled so it won't work.

I finaly got it, before I was flashing CWM with adb and trying to flash the rom, didn't work for me.

This time I just unbricked and rooted, then used 2nd init to flash the rom happiness

Looks great bro, smooth az the F7 gets !

Oh, completely forgot about that.
Also, (sorry for so many questions, I'm used to the ZTE and that phone was really simple with rooting) is there anyway to get cwm to boot with the volume keys while the phone is off? I actually can't even get cwm to boot using the 2nd in.it method (method 2 on http://unleashedprepaids.com/thread-8379.html) since I installed the rom
Is there a different method I should be using to get into recovery?

Heres how I got CWM...

download this file: fx1s-cwm.lok

and flash with adb:

Code:
adb push fx1s-cwm.lok /data/local/tmp/fx1s-cwm.lok
Code:
adb shell su -c dd if=/data/local/tmp/fx1s-cwm.lok of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/recovery

The lock screen (swipe and touch) don't work either. Touch doesn't work at all, a s swipe can be unlocked by hitting the menu key.

i know touch was something that i enabled but forgot to remove cause it did nothing. Yes Swipe can be unlocked by touching the home button that comes default.

na you can remove it, its under /system/app/*com.Name* dunno what the actual name is but if you use es file explorer it has the icon displays so you can just delete it when you see the correct icon for terminal app.

Found it to be /system/app/jackpal.androidterm-1.apk

I deleted it, downloaded a current version, and installed over it.
Seems to work fine now.

Sorry, still kinda new to rooting with this phone. What's adb? And is there any chance this could soft brick my phone? The only backup I have is from before I installed this rom and I also don't have a way to restore if something goes wrong since my laptop crashed
