Default Physical buttons aren't working after Cam fix or Sensor fix from Android 2.2 update post.

After I tried to fix the camera and sensor from this post: http://androidforums.com/lg-optimus-gt540/251202-cyanogenmod-6-1-android-2-2-here-gt540.html

my physical buttons don't work anymore. The Menu and Back buttons light up when I press a physical button but the buttons don't do anything. Please help!

+ Some apps cause my phone to crash.

I don't know how to set permissions. And I restarted my phone already. Maybe the problem is because of the permissions? Can you show my how to set the correct permissions?

My phone's stuck at the boot screen now after changing the permission for /system/lib/hw using this site: SwiftDroid
for camera

Open Root Explorer and Move the two files from the sd card to /system/usr/keylayout by long press the file and selecting move from the menu that appears then find the folder above and mount the folder as read/write and selecting paste at the bottom of the screen then long press the file again this time select permissions and change the permissions of both files to look like this.

User R W

Group R

Others R

for accelermeter

Open Root Explorer and copy the file
3. Go to /system/lib/hw and paste the file into there (If it doesn't work, tap 'Mount R/W' in the top right corner)
4. Restart the phone

permissioms should look like this

user (read)
group (read write excute)
others (read excute)

to set permissions press button at top of root explorer (mount r/w)
then find the file u want to set permssions on long press it and u will see the option (permissions)

if ur stuck on boot u will have to wipe the cache if u recovery installed follow this link an install it as recovery an u will have 2.3.3 with the fixes http://narod.ru/disk/7153195001/2011-03-09.19.42.26.zip.html

You may have set the permissions wrong.. Here's how to reinstall whilst keeping your data:

1. Boot into recovery

2. Navigate to backup & restore>backup. This will take a while.

3. Boot into fastboot and reinstall SwiftDroid

4. Boot back into recovery and navigate to backup & restore>advanced restore>restore data>select the backup you made in step 2>yes

5. Reboot the phone and your phone should be back to normal

This is why you should backup before you modify any system files. Follow the instructions in the blog post again making absolute sure that you've done everything correctly as it says

What d'you mean you pressed the wrong restore settings? You're apps should still be there after you restore data from recovery.

I'm confused now. and how do you restore system apps like Market? I used every advance restore option but "Restore System". Still can't get them back.

+ Should I upgrade to 2.3? Is it buggier than 2.2 or is it better?

I'm trying to update to 2.3 but on the cmd thing, it says "waiting for device" and it wouldn't read my phone. My computer wouldn't read my phone either. I'm running win xp and I installed the drivers already.

It's the same process as installing 2.2, put the phone in fastboot mode by holding the camera button and powering on the phone, keep holding the camera button till the screen is blank. Then connect the phone to the PC

u dont need to use cmd for this install download this link SOFT-MOD прошивка LG GT540 by MMXTREM - 4PDA

and install with these step by step insctructions


the steps involve :make a backup of ur current rom

create a folder on sd card called clockworkmod

inside that folder place a file called backup

inside the folder backup put the file u downloaded

boot into recovery an choose restore an pick the file u downloaded

im using it myself i uninstalled most of the apps that came installed the phone now looks so much more modern with fancy fonts and the added colour to things

I was on fastboot. But my computer doesn't recognize my phone.

I used my bro's computer to do it. Now I'm running 2.3 and I changed the language to English but some of the apps are still in Russia.

Never mind. I rebooted and now everything works. Just need to install all my apps again. Good thing I made a list of apps I have on my computer

Yeah but, he won't get updates until Soft-ROM get's updated too, the fixes aren't hard to do at all, the instructions are clear and very easy to follow

Yeah I noticed, but when SD gets updated, you gotta then wait for him to add some code then publish that, which could take days..

Yeah, I know what the root of the SD is. I put all my apks from my APK folder onto the root of my SD card and tried to download them with Easy installer but the only apps Easy installer shows is apks from /mnt/sd/

The root of the SD Card is just the SD Card with out putting it in a folder. If you put it just on the SD Card, then it's on the root, if you put it in a folder that's on the SD card, it's not in the root of the SD card

Root Explorer only recognized the following folders: .android_secure, Android, /mnt/sdcard, dalvik-cache, LOST.DIT, tmp and that's all. The only apps it displays is apps from mnt/sdcard
