Everything working beautifully as far as I can tell, haven't tested MMS, GPS or Wi-fi yet, but flashed over firmware B and booted fine. Data works, radio works, camera works, only thing I had to do is re-root, but just ran the root program as normal from my PC and was back in business.

Thanks a lot GameTheory, if I could I would donate to you but I don't have a paypal... This is a seriously selfless project and it's very much appreciated! Thanks!!

Excellent work. Everything flashed and booted just fine. Updating apps, wifi, everything so far is working, except Superuser. I tried to use NoBloat to remove some apps and it said I dont have root access. O.o

Edit: MMS does not work on wifi for me, and it took a try or two after switching to data to get it to send, but it worked.

I don't remember rooting via the computer, was there another way to root from the phone or can someone tell me how to do it via PC? Its been a 'coons age since I rooted this damned thing, lol

Thanks Guys

I think a found the why superuser wasn't working. I'll upload the rom again with superuser fixed. I'll post back once it's uploaded sometime today.

I didn't do any changes to mms so that should work as normal. Make sure not to use Hangouts for mms since google is trying to fix that app for sending mms.

If anyone else has flashed this rom, let me know if all is working for you... Thanks.

Yeah, other than SU, everything seems to work ok. I will compile a list of apps I get rid of as soon as I get the updated rom. Thanks again for all your hard work, this is a big step forward

Updated the rom... Superuser should be fixed now.

If you already have the rom installed with superuser working, you don't need to reinstall the rom.

I'm running into a little snag. I have to re-root using "spirited_away_rctnerfer" in order to reboot into recovery, but when I execute the run.bat file, it "starts daemon successfully" and then sits there forever. I have the drivers installed, but I did notice that the option to enable USB Debugging is grayed out and wont let me turn it on. Any ideas?

I did the same thing until I remembered you have to go into developer options and enable USB debugging, the default setting is to have debugging turned off

I am aware of that. Like I said, I go to enable it and the option is grayed out and won't do anything when I select it to turn it on

Is your phone unplugged from USB when your try to enable it? It will always be greyed out if the phone is plugged into the PC when you try to enable it.

No, turns out I needed to select "Internet Connection->Modem" to let it install the last of the drivers. As for the option to turn on debugging, i always have it plugged in and then go and select it, it just wouldnt let me without installing the last of the drivers. Now I have another issue. I have root but when I use the app to reboot into recovery, it just reboots normally. First time I did it, my phone reset and now I have to start over. Oh well, at least I have root

To use the recovery app you must first click on "Recovery apply!" then you'll get a popup that says "OK". After that you can click on "REBOOT!" to get into recovery.

Note:
The rom comes with a themed version of the recovery app that can be accessed from the settings menu. I changed the recovery app's icon to dark bg with red skull in case you don't recognise it.

Holy crap, I didn't think we would ever get a rom. I've been applying the hardware updates and 12A just came out. Any idea if root is possible from this yet?

12A is still running 4.1.2 - no update there. I have no clue what this update did. Probably just another way of trying to prevent rooting the phone.

I couldn't get past activation.

EDIT: Nevermind, I removed my battery and the SIM card and replaced them again so it worked fine Thanks for all the hard work, it's a very stable rom from what I can see. All I wish for is a better notification shade

GT, if you decide to improve/update this ROM in the future, one app you can leave out is "System Update", then no one will have to worry about the update prompt in the notification bar. I stared at that thing for months before I figured out what to delete, lol

Since I don't own this phone you have to post the exact name of the apk otherwise I might not find it. Remember I need the apk name not the app name.

Of course, how silly of me. It's "MobileUpdateClient.apk"

Do you have any plans for an update in the future? Not rushing, just curious

I'm testing this ROM and also keeping a log of notes in Keep of things I notice about the ROM for future development. This is what I have so far:

1. Font size errors in Settings. (Screenshot included)

2. Remove large VZW Wi-Fi box in the Notif Shade, and put a Wi-Fi icon in the toggles bar. (Screenshot included.)


3. Remove System Update (MobileUpdateClient.apk)



I also had a force restart of my device when I started up Clash of Clans, but it only happened once. Not sure if this is worth reporting.


I know you don't have a device to work with, but I would be more than willing to test for you since I use this phone.

That font screen isn't an error! That's how LG displays the font size menu on most of their phones. If you want a different look to the notification area, then create a theme and share it with everyone. If your just nit-picking, then perhaps create your own rom to your liking.

Like I said before, I don't own this phone so I'm limited to what I can do for it.

Sorry I didn't mean to nitpick, just wanted to see what I could do to help since I have the phone and can test your ROM. I really do appreciate what you have done though.

My apologies for being lost but recently I updated to Verizon's VS87012A (big mistake, don't ask me why). This update un-rooted my phone so I went ahead and rolled back to VS87010 which allowed me to root the phone again. I then saw this post and wanted to install this ROM; however, I'm not having any luck. I use Titanium BU and rom manager and tried to install from the SD card but this process only put my phone into a recovered state, i.e the install failed. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

What I did is I installed the custom recovery, then went into that and wiped data/factory reset then installed from SD card. If you can't boot into your phone, then try the unbrick/unroot method, then flash the custom recovery, and root, then do the above steps to instal.

I'm sorry that doesn't help because I'm not sure of the exact steps. When you install from the SD card, you select the zip file correct? Is there more detailed instructions for this process? Plus Clockwork recovery does not recognize the LG Lucid 2? Again, sorry I'm so lost. I'm trying to figure this out through forums, google, and you tube, etc. Thanks.

Okay i'll try to write out a step by step process.

1. Make sure your phone can boot up, if you soft bricked it, read the sticky on how to unbrick it, then root the phone using the instructions in the stickies.

2. Download and instal this apk to your phone: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0By1SxJY5FEvyNXNHenc2ZGY5LU0/edit?usp=sharing

3. Open the app and apply the custom recovery.

4. Press the REBOOT button which will bring you into recovery mode.

5. Wipe data and do a factory reset in the recovery.

6. Select install from SD and select the ROM.zip file on your phone.

7. Let it flash, then reboot back into your phone regularly.

8. If you can't get past the activation process, turn your phone off, take the battery and SIM out and put them back in then restart the phone.

9. Activate your SIM, log into Google, etc.....Setup Wizard stuff.

10. Let your phone sit and update all your Google Play apps, including the Google Apps.

11. Restart the phone and you should be good to go!

Ha ok thanks. I wonder what the deal is... It would be nice to have foxfi, but I guess LG kind of sucks. Anyway, thanks for the ROM and I'll give it a try as soon as I can!

I did add init.d support to the kernel that comes with the rom though. I saw somewhere on the web a script to enable tethering for init.d supported kernels. You just place the init.d script in /system/etc/init.d and set perms to rwx-rwx-rwx then reboot to enable it.

Just search on google for init.d scripts or init.d tweaks or whatever else you see fit.

You should start a new thread for init.d scripts so that you can all share what you find and troubleshoot them if needed.

Why not read the first post where the rom is posted? It has the same common instructions listed used to install roms on most phones.

I am new to this forum and I googled some keywords to direct me to at least discovering a 'custom rom'. Why can't some one just copy and paste the link to save me all the trouble from searching how to properly install a custom rom, maybe even a Utube video or something... As far as I see it, there are no documents to teach people to do it, but misunderstood tutorials, and most videos use different phones with different applications.

I have KDZ_FW_UPS and UpTestEX_mod2_marwin with msxml installed, but that was for unbricking my other LG Lucid 2 which I ended up causing even more trouble down the line. (-_-)

Most videos use different phones and different applications because no Android phone is exactly like another. What will work for one will not for another. This phone is relatively new and there are not a lot of resources for it, BUT if you read carefully, the forum you are already in has detailed instructions for this particular phone.

You seem to want an easy solution, to not research and learn anything on your own, which is fine, that's your prerogative. But don't expect anyone to hold your hand through any process if you are not willing to learn about what it is you're doing first. That goes for this phone and life in general.

Here is a link you might find interesting, good luck:

Why not read?? What a novel concept! Lol

Ran into a small problem while trying to run zepplinrox's V6 Supercharger with SManager. Basically any version of busybox I try to install gives me errors like "cp: no such tool" when I attempt to install sqlite3 or zipalign binaries, it won't chmod or chown anything, and for some reason the V6 script thinks it is being run from the init.d folder (I have run it from sdcard0 and sdcard1 with the same result).

I kdz'd back to stock because I was getting frustrated but I can reflash the ROM and take a logcat if you need more detailed information.

Nah no need for logcat. I've never used v6 supercharge and probably never will so I can't help with troubleshooting it.

If you already installed busybox from here and still no v6 then I don't know what to tell ya lol.

The busybox and su in this rom are the ones from this phone's root thread.

The only hand I expect to guide me is Google and any other search engine that is capable of sharing useful information. I read all the time, infact way too much computer programming related topics.

I already have my reasons for installing a new custom, because I want to get rid of unnecessary applications to make room for my internal storage. I want to install kali os so I can continue pen testing when I am not at my laptop.

I am probably better off googling then wasting my time with a run around. Just because you probably know how to attempt one method on a phone does not make you better then no one. I code in a variety of different languages and I do not compare myself as a genius to others. Sometimes people are nice and like to share, and sometimes some people are ass holes and like to make funny remarks.

I admit that I am lazy at certain times, but all I am asking for is a stable resource to my question that I can read. How is that holding my hand to be guided?
Its not like you got read it for me lol.
I figured signing up for this forum will help me find information I need twice as fast, but obviously slowed me down even more.

Don't know what the problem is. I was once a major noob myself and had no clue how to root or flash a rom. My solution to that was to read through that phone's forum and all the answers were there. Before I knew it I had a rom installed and enjoying my phone even more. Fast forward and now I develop for android phones all of which I learned with no help from anyone.

My point... We were all once noobs, but with a little resourcefulness you end up figuring it out.

I already posted instructions in the first post along with my rom on how to flash it. Someone a few posts up also posted some instructions.

Just to be redundant, here they are again a little simpler...

1. Place rom zip in sd card
2. Boot into recovery
3. Do a backup
4. Select wipe data factory reset
5. Now select install zip from sd
6. when install completes, reboot. First boot takes about 3 minutes
7. Once it boots and you're at your home screen, update all your apps through play store
8. Once app updates finish, reboot your phone. Done! Enjoy!

Hope this helps.

I went and looked up that article for you, I was only kind of trying to come off as an asshole. The reason you're getting the runaround is because you are asking questions that have already been answered, despite the fact that you claim to read copiously.

I don't profess to be an expert, but I also do my research before asking questions and I don't act indignant when things aren't laid out for me exactly the way I'd like. So good luck to you, I hope you figure out whatever it is your having trouble with.

I appreciate some of the help, but I do not appreciate the remarks. Also ofcourse no one cannot learn anything on their own without one depending on some sort of information. Even reading a book depending on the authors way of explaining things is holding your hand to what is needed to be acknowledged, just saying.
