Default Optimus Question Thread (Root/UnRooted)

I know alot about androids and I'm far from new at this, if u have any questions plz dont hesitate to ask. I've done coding and developing for the LG Ally and a bit for the Samsung Intercept.


We only have 3 devs working day and night to make this phone top notch and reach its potential. So plz don't bug the the other 2 devs, that's what I'm here for so ask away and I check the forum every day atleast twice so b just a bit paitent

We will do our best to make the best out of this phone if u can do ur best to be patient for us to get it done. So far this is what we have been working on.

CUSTOM RECOVERY FOR C!
PORTING ROMS SUCH AS CM7, OPTIMUS SENSE. AND CREATING OUR OWN ROM (AROUND 2.3/CM7)
CUSTOM KERNEL INCLUDING OC'ing

We've got alot to do along with helping u folks so my job is to answer ur questions and get u the help u need to make ur phone better then ever

Thank You,
LilG

Guys I work 60 hours a week on top of coding for this phone trying to perfect a rom. I've passed along a lot of info to lilg and he's nothing new to the scene. Please show him your respect and if you have anything to ask at all don't hesitate. We don't judge, just please use FAQs before hand so he's not bombarded with basic android questions.That's what the rest of the forum is for. Thank you

I would just like to thank all of you for all of your work. Its people like yourselves that made the computer revolution happen in the first place.

I have installed all of your current customizations, and I now love my phone.

I am not new to computers in general, but I am very new to android. I am currently reading everything I can find about android development, with the hopes of being able to give back to the community soon.

Thanks again, and looking forward to your future projects.

Okay, I've downloaded the files (recovery, flash_image, kernel, etc...) and have them on the SD card. I can get into su with no problems but once I do the mount command, it's not working for me - I get the 'Usage: mount yaddayaddayadda' message.

Any ideas, and I simply forgetting to do something beforehand?

Thanks.

Did you perform a wipe before you flashed cm7?

you don't flash cm7 and then the other zips like the kernel.

what's the third zip you were talking about?

Also make sure the card is partitioned of course. with any rom you need to perform a wipe before flashing

Ah just flash the kernel through the recovery menu say like you would a rom. don't even bother changing metro pcs. It's pretty simple but it's just an interface change. I'll probably release a change for that soon along with a gps one for people having trouble.

It works fine.It's to disable the metro things, it's just a variant of metro off.

I just got a pic on mine so possibly your area?

Can somebody please explain to me how to get mms working bc I absolutely cant figure it out I've tried everything that other people have done to get it working but its not working for me...I love cm7 but I want to be able to get pic messages also...I would really appreciate it..

Also the kernel that you have posted rebel isn't working for me either I flash it like you told me to then when I install the setcpu you have posted as soon as I move the governor up it freezes the phone shuts it off then reboots I have no clue what I'm doing wrong with the mms or the kernel but they are not working for me.
