Default CyanogenMod 6.1/Android 2.2 Is here for GT540!

*Please make sure you read the instructions properly!! People are replying to this post saying the problems they're having when the answer is that they didn't read the post properly. If you are having problems, then refer back to the instructions and make sure you followed the steps EXACTLY as they're written. Thanks!

Make a backup of your 2.1 ROM before you update in case you want to go back to 2.1/you are having problems with 2.2. To do this, flash your phone with the fastboot ROM and install recovery via the instructions below, then go to recovery and make a backup of the current 2.1 ROM to restore back to if you have any problems

Update: Recovery is now included in the .zip file as an optional install, instructions are updated!

Quarx and ankuch from 4pda.ru are working on porting CyanogenMod 6.1 Android 2.2.1 to the LG GT540, it's available to download although it's still in beta stage so there are a few bugs in it.
Here's the list from the site saying what works and doesn't (I'll update this list as they do):
What's working: Wifi, GSM (Mobile Data), Camera (photo / video in 3GP), Bluetooth (receiving / sending files / HID), Video Codec (Hardware only H264), stereo audio to the headset, 3D accelerator, detectors, GPS / AGPS, navigate base stations, installing programs on a flash drive (Apps2SD).
What does not work: Fm-Radio, Camera (Video in H264/MP4), Codecs (XVID, DIVX)

Changelog:





Buglist:





LG GT540 CyanogenMod <--- A link to all the files I used for CyanogenMod 6 + 7

Make sure you follow the instructions exactly as they're written. As always, with flashing your phone, there's always the risk of bricking your phone. I'm not responsible for anything that happens to your phone because of flashing custom firmware. But I will do my best to try and help you with any problems you might encounter


To install this ROM you need to have fastboot enabled on your phone. If you have Android 1.6/2.1 installed from LG, then fastboot is not enabled. I will explain how to enable fastboot on your phone (this involves re-flashing/replacing your currently installed firmware):

KDZ Updater CarphoneWarehouse Unlocked.zip - A link to a zip archive with all the files needed to flash Android version 2.1 with fastboot (Carphone Warehouse Unlocked)

KDZ Updater Europe Open.zip - A link to a zip archive with all the files needed to flash Android version 2.1 with fastboot (Europe Open)

Download the version that best applies to you, if you live in the UK, I'd recommend you download the Carphone Warehouse Unlocked version, whereas if you live in Europe, I'd recommend the Europe Open version (simple right? )

Now, how to flash these versions; I'll explain in detail how to flash the ROM's from starting with backing up.

Instructions to install ROM with Fastboot:





Instructions to install CyanogenMod:





Enjoy!

The instructions for flashing both the firmware with fastboot and flashing CyanogenMod are included in the zip archives called 'Readme'. I'll update the links so that you'll always have the most up to date version of CyanogenMod available for download, note that if you choose to update your phone you will loose all your data including apps etc. so backup before you update

Original post: LG GT540 - Проект OpenSwift -Прошивка (OS 2.2.1) - 4PDA

Restoring back to 2.1:





ClockworkMod Recovery:





How to restore the boot logo's so you can get into recovery:





Gingerbread theme:
Before starting, make a full backup of your phone via recovery! To do this, go to recovery by holding the 'Home' button on powerup, then go to 'backup and restore' then choose 'backup'. Thanks!

Haha, it's pretty much finished, just a few features missing and a few bugs apart from that, it's amazing! Super fast, very responsive and works unbelievably well. Those screenshots were taken from my phone :P

Definitely NOT finished, FM Radio is not working, you can not calibrate the screen at ALL, and various other bugs I see at 4pda.ru often. Still was way to go before I call it stable for the average Joe.

4.Sinhronizatsii with Pc Suite will not be
5.Vozmozhny problems with the Russian language in RootExplorer'om.
6. a full flush will not! will only FlashLite

This is what's on the site, because it's in Russian it couldn't be translated properly. Using the phone, the only bugs I've found myself are if you go to Settings>About Phone>System Tutorial the phone just force closes, so that doesn't work. Also if you go to Settings>CyanogenMod settings>Anonymous Statistics that force closes too. One more thing is I tried to send a file from my laptop to the phone but it just wouldn't connect, I'm not sure if it does this when you send a file from another phone to this phone.

Hope that helps!

You can still record video, its just encoded in .3gp I've tested it.

Well this is from the changelog:
'Boot v1.4 & System v4.3:
Codecs - H264 c hardware acceleration .... others must work in software.
Added support for camera with video recording has a problem.
Bluetooth works for file transfer, the reception is not working. Audio transmission is not tested (no headset)
Launcher by default from 2.2.1
Effects of the screen work again.
Lock screen during incoming and outgoing calls.
Added HomeSelector
Was converted video subsystem that may fall in the benchmark results.'
So it kinda just says there, bluetooth file transfer works, but doesn't work.. :S

I flashed the phone 2 days ago and have been checking for updates since, so I think I do have the most up-to-date version

At XDA they edited the post (LG GT540 - OpenSwift Project - (OS 2.2.1), by ankuch & Quarx - xda-developers) like 23hrs ago & removed ''Camera (Video in H264/MP4)'' & Bluetooth Transfer problem

Just installed SetCPU and It's fully capable of overclocking! Right now I've got it set to 806MHz and it doesn't seem to drain the battery that badly . I tried to set it at 900MHz, but the phone just restarted...

I Googled swapping and it seems like a great idea, but it doesn't make much sense, because if you store it onto the SD card which is much much much slower to read/write from wouldn't it make the phone even slower when it's low on memory? Android has its own unique way of handling things when it comes to memory, when the device is low on memory, Android will terminate applications that are not active, but before that happens it give the app a chance to send its last information to the phone, so when you open that terminated app up again, the information is sent back to the app, making it look like it was never closed. Also, I haven't seen anything on the 4pda.ru about it... but I'm sure it probably could if you wanted to

Yes, you are right... but with swapping enabled you can play game that require more RAM than Optimus have - for example Dungeon Defenders show off

Hmm, looks good, but I won't be using it. I'll test it out to let others know how it works

EDIT: Check the bottom of the 1st post for update

For me when i get the fastboot mode and open CMD, the computer won't recognize the phone... after fastboot.exe -w it says < waiting for device > and for some reason the computer won't recognize it even though i installed the drivers that were provided on this website. When i connect my phone the install wizard comes up but it can't find the hardware for the phone. What do i do?

Yeah you can, just follow the steps provided in the first post and you'll have 2.2 in no time! Just make sure you read the bug list and what does and doesn't work.

Are you sure you put the phone in fastboot mode by holding the camera button whilst powering on the phone, until the screen goes blank?

Thanks, I found this out myself and thought I'd tell other people about it because I doubt that LG will be releasing Froyo 2.2 anytime soon, so this would be pretty much the only way to get it!

Well, It's not that LG is lazy... GT540's processor, ARMv6, can't handle Flash.. So, they can't update...

I seem to have lost mobile data connectivity. Does anybody know if this is a radio baseband issue or know how it can be resolved?

Baseband version - AMSS53404003
Mobile network state - Disconnected

Has anybody encountered this issue and found a solution?

EDIT: Fixed! Added APN and everything works.

Brilliant, sometimes it just takes a bit of searching through all the settings before you find the answer to your problems!

Quarx and ankuch from 4pda.ru are working on porting CyanogenMod 6.1 Android 2.2.1 to the LG GT540, it's available to download although it's still in beta stage so there are a few bugs in it.
Here's the list from the site saying what works and doesn't (I'll update this list as they do):
What's working: Wifi, GSM (Mobile Data), Camera (photo / video in 3GP), Bluetooth (receiving / sending files / HID), Video Codec (Hardware only H264), stereo audio to the headset, 3D accelerator, detectors, GPS / AGPS, navigate base stations, installing programs on a flash drive (Apps2SD).
What does not work: Fm-Radio, Camera (Video in H264/MP4), Codecs (XVID, DIVX)

Buglist:






Make sure you follow the instructions exactly as they're written. As always, with flashing your phone, there's always the risk of bricking your phone. I'm not responsible for anything that happens to your phone because of flashing custom firmware. But I will do my best to try and help you with any problems you might encounter


To install this ROM you need to have fastboot enabled on your phone. If you have Android 1.6/2.1 installed from LG, then fastboot is not enabled. I will explain how to enable fastboot on your phone (this involves re-flashing/replacing your currently installed firmware):

KDZ Updater CarphoneWarehouse Unlocked.zip - A link to a zip archive with all the files needed to flash Android version 2.1 with fastboot (Carphone Warehouse Unlocked)

KDZ Updater Europe Open.zip - A link to a zip archive with all the files needed to flash Android version 2.1 with fastboot (Europe Open)

Download the version that best applies to you, if you live in the UK, I'd recommend you download the Carphone Warehouse Unlocked version, whereas if you live in Europe, I'd recommend the Europe Open version (simple right? )

Now, how to flash these versions; I'll explain in detail how to flash the ROM's from starting with backing up.

Instructions to install ROM with Fastboot:





Instructions to install CyanogenMod:





Enjoy!

The instructions for flashing both the firmware with fastboot and flashing CyanogenMod are included in the zip archives called 'Readme'. I'll update the links so that you'll always have the most up to date version of CyanogenMod available for download, note that if you choose to update your phone you will loose all your data including apps etc. so backup before you update

Original post: LG GT540 - Проект OpenSwift -Прошивка (OS 2.2.1) - 4PDA

Screenshots:





To enable Apps2SD:





Benchmark Tests:





Swapping:
I installed dungeon defenders, and I couldn't even open it. It just came up with an error saying 'could not connect to' something (I can't remember what :P) but I installed swapper and it was able to create a swapper file. Whether it is able to use it or not I'm not sure, but if anyone can suggest another way for me to test if swapping works (if there's an app, I'd prefer if it was free :P)
first post so go easy on me, trying to upgrade to 2.2 following steps as posted, get to launch software update and get error message saying kdz file extract error. any ideas?

Maybe the KDZ file you downloaded got corrupted, try downloading the .zip file and try again
