Default CM7 ported to LG optimus C :D

I DID IT!!!!!

I sat down for a few hours and tweaked CM7 to run on the C. EVERYTHING runs so far. You need to make no changes, just flash it.

If you have a recovery menu you know how to do it. Menu will be out very soon too.

LET ME MAKE THIS CLEAR!!


IF you do not have the new recovery menu that only a handful of us have, DO NOT FLASH THIS. Only testers can flash this until a full recovery for this phone is released. THANK YOU

Just a heads up, if you get an error flashing saying that signature failed, make sure to toggle signature verification in recovery before flashing I just ran into that lol

BTW: Does this have GAPPS included?

I flashed this, and it worked fine until the phone went to sleep. Afterwards, everytime I tried to wake up the phone no visuals would come up. Just the backlight would appear.

Another thing: I can't get MMS to work.

Rebel,
Thanks for porting over CM7 to the C.

Things I have noticed since using this:
* When I push my power key and select power off, the phone reboots.
* When making or accepting a call and the proximity sensor makes the screen go blank, it sometimes will not come back on.

Not a problem. Just do a clean wipe in your recovery menu and install it again. I've noticed those that are having the issues with the power button and the screen coming back on make sure you have created a swap space. When it won't come back on hold down the power button and wait a couple seconds.The menu will pop up and just hit the back key and you will return to your phone. I run into the issue every now and then but mine has consistently been working fine. I've never had any proximity sensor issues, do a clean wipe and see if it fixes it.No one else seems to have had that issue either.

First of all Thanks for your hard work! I Downloaded your CM7LGC.zip and it is working like a champ.

I did have a couple problems with the screen not coming on from sleep/screen lock...I seem to have fixed that when I disabled the screen power off/on animation thing.

*edit* Also I used Xiona Flash Recovery that was posted awhile back

Quick question also... I've seen in a couple places it says MetroPCS anyway to change that to say Cricket?


Again great job and am very excited for the overclocked rom

You can edit the eri.xml file located within the framework-res.apk file. Hex edit the eri.xml file and replace "Metro PCS" with "Cricket".

*** Edit *** After editing the eri.xml and the build.prop to include the correct information for Cricket, I put that all back together into a signed zip and flashed. I noticed that this corrects a bunch of Metro PCS info to Cricket and seems to work a little better. I also included the MMS fix right in the flashable rom file.

was just about to release that as an update but it looks like you did it already. It really doesn't make a difference performance wise. They run on the same network under different names, like Ntelos and alltell used to. Thats why the stock rom has metro stuff in the system files if you look.

Default Recovery and custom rom

First, I would like to say thank-you rebel for getting us this far.
I installed the custom recovery and cm7 rom, but have two issues. One is the screen not allways coming on or back on after a call. The second issue is no GPS. Is this from something I did wrong? I did do a wipe and partitioned before flashing. I love this ron, and I would hate to go back to stock. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Your very welcome gideon. My issue resolved it self by updating to the latest google maps.I no longer have issues, also a fix is coming out for those of you that do.Second, turn off animations and just wait a second if it doesnt come up the first time try it again. I used to have an issue with the screen off but the power button seems to work either way. just hold it down until you see something and press the back key if it locks up.

Sogone209, the instructions are out there if you do your home work. This is my first android phone as well, but I managed to find enough information out there to be able to do this. You need to understand what you are doing before you do it.

he freaked out on everyone and texted me 86 times from 3am on. The mod actually deleted his post. Hes been pretty horrible to me and has been non stop harassing me. All because he couldn't follow directions. So I ask that everyone let him figure this out himself. I prefer he not run the rom at all if he can't figure out how to install it he's not experienced enough to deal with anything if any issues arise. As it says in the FAQ if you did not follow the bulletins we laid out do not install it you will brick your device. Gideon has my respect for asking for help and being patient. thank you gideon. my ad account was frozen because sogone went on there and clicked the same ad a hundred times and it sent up a red flag.it was logged as his IP (thank god they log them) so i knew who it was.

If there's anything you guys know I can do there please let me know.

Default Cm7 for m

I flashed the cm7 rom for the m and have only minor issues. I fixed the GPS and mms with tips I found on the xda. I also flashed the sense rom and had no issues.

I've asked people not to flash either for a reason.This one has the optimus c kernel at the base of it. Also modifications, your playing with fire gideon. We've been over this.Just because it appears to work doesn't mean it's not damaging.

this phones base is actually closer to the optimus V in terms of kernel. Again just because anothers works does not mean your not causing damage. I cannot stress this enough. Just look at the mount when you install the recovery, their not even the same.Theres a reason for that.

I have heeded your warning. Would like to know more about overclocking. I have not tried it yet, I know it can be harmful, but would still like to experiment.

There isn't much you can really do unless you can code your own kernels. When you flash Rebel's overclock kernel you just download SetCPU and then move the slider to the right to increase your CPU speed.

Basically he's right. He simplified it. It is all also dependent on your phone.Say your phone is old, it might choke on a higher speed. Mine can stay stable on 864 but say the next guy could only stay stable at 802. varies with each phone.

Where is the new rom and the new recovery? I checked your website and I see nothing and the only rom I see is the first one you posted. Why does everything seem to be pulled?

I keep seeing the words Follow the Instructions, but there seems to be no instructions in any of the posts regarding where to locate the recovery used for this, how to install it, how to apply the MMS fix, etc. Have these illusive instructions been moved/edited? If instructions are supplied at an external source, A link to said source would be greatly appreciated.

I can tell you why this ROM has Metro all thru it and didnt work for cricket from the get go. That is because mr rebel here (aka Thomas Romspert, momentai99) jacked someone else's ROM and half-assed cooked to make the changes needed to work on the OC. Now that really isnt an issue except for the fact he claims he ported CM7 to the Optimus C, not cooked and modded someone elses work. And then he has the nerve to ask you all to fund his synergy habit and links you to his lame site so you can click on ads for him.

And as they say, the proof is in the pudding. Just look at the build.prop in this ROM and it tells all. this is a cooked/modded ROM at best and a far cry from what a port is. A port is built and compiled from source (src) not cooked in a kitchen. And to beat it all he gives no credit to the Dev than done the port he jacked.

Just a FYI about who you all have been dealing with!

Agreed. This guy was busy slandering one Android site (PPA) by claiming we have been known to break phones, and saying PlayfulGod's Ascend II recovery was buggy and dangerous as well, all while he was claiming to work WITH PlayfulGod on the recovery.

He was also masquerading as a "Verified Developer" at the MCF forums until he was exposed a couple of days ago as a hack and a thief, before being stripped of his title, and has managed maybe 2 posts in the time since, never showing any proof whatsoever of the "development" he has allegedly done.

Add to that the fact that half of his posts at MCF are either begging for donations, begging people to click on his blog ads, or holding his alleged ROMs ransom until he is able to SELL the phones that were supposed to have been DONATED to him specifically FOR THAT DEVELOPMENT, and you have someone who is absolutely untrustable and should not be endorsed or suffered in any way. The only people he allowed to test his "works" are people who donated, and he openly said that the highest monetary donators would get the most consideration.

Does that sound like someone you'd trust to be honest and to actually do the hard work it takes to make a true, working port of something for your phone?

AF Staff,

Sorry about this but members need to know about who they are dealing with!

He claimed it to be a dirty port which isn't close either
I'm a Dev, j test, theme, and help build kernels for entertainment not performance and I've no longer got my Linux to do anything and I really don't see myself getting it again

I am known in the LG ally community and death2all110 tought me alot while helping him build his rom.

This was all stolen from the OM link and he didn't even bother cooking it, I flashed both roms and they are both the same just zipped under a different name

The Guy is indeed a fraud and just a blogger tryna make money

Playfulgod if u need anyhelp testing or any theme/coding done as far as 2.2.2 or up goes I will help u (donations unwanted/not needed)

He sat down for a few hours and tweaked it? More like sat down for a few seconds and renamed it. Haha, I had no idea, this is just HELLarious. Wonder if its got my kernel or if he actually took the time to unpack the boot.img and put his own in.

Edit: Hey! that little turd gave a direct link to my dropbox MMS fix, didn't even mention my name, and asked for a donation in the same damn thread. Boo this man.

I really really need help if anyone can. I have an LG Optimus C rooted and flashed with the latest CM7 build. I did it twice step by frigging step and everything seems to work fine BUT I get gps like in maps, Facebook and any other location based app however when I use Navigation for maps for voice guided help, it locks on my position, gives me directions in text but says 'Looking for gps' or something to that degree. It NEVER locks on and the Navigation NEVER works, I actually need it more than I realized and am desperate for help. Can someone please help me fix this problem, I've searched everywhere I could think of to no avail. I also have the XDA modified Flash Player and it works part of the time. Is there a browser from the market or anywhere I could install which would make Flash work better? I'm a member on her for replies or you can email me at mshuman77@hotmail.com. I LOVE CM7 but if I can't fix the navigation issues I'll have to consider going back to stock or trying another ROM. PLEASE HELP!!! Thank you everyone in advance.
