Hold the camera button down and start the phone, then go through your steps again until it says "waiting for device" and connect it. If it doesn't recognise the phone there are some drivers you may neeed to reinstall on your computer. Theyre steps in the guide though.

(I'm using 2.1, it may be a bit different)
Ok, here's how to set up 3G internet + MMS.
1. Go to Settings --> Wireless & Networks --> Mobile Network Settings --> Access Point Names.
2. You should see a blank list. Press "New APN".
3. Fill in the following:
Code:
Name: Optus Yes Internet
APN: yesinternet
Proxy:
Port:
Username:
Password:
Server:
MMSC:
MMS Proxy:
MMS Port:
MMS Protocol (Android 2.1+): WAP 2.0
MCC: 505
MNC: 02
Auth Type: PAP
APN Type: internet or default
Press "Save". You should go back to the "Mobile Network Settings" page.
5. Turn on 3G (mobile network) and test it out. Hopefully, it worked. If not, then recheck and make sure you filled in everything correctly.
6. If it worked, you'll probably want to set up MMS too. Go back to the "Access Point Names" page, and press "New APN".
7. Fill in the following:
Code:
Name: Optus MMS
APN: mms
Proxy:
Port:
Username:
Password:
Server:
MMSC: http://mmsc.optus.com.au:8002/
MMS Proxy: 61.88.190.10
MMS Port: 8070
MMS Protocol (Android 2.1+): WAP 2.0
MCC: 505
MNC: 02
Auth Type: PAP
APN Type: mms
Press "Save". You should go back to the "Mobile Network Settings" page.
8. Test it by:
A. Sending a friend a MMS.
B. Getting a friend to send you a MMS.
I recommend that you do both, to make sure it works both ways.
Hopefully, it worked. If not, then recheck and make sure you filled in everything correctly.
9. ???
10. PROFIT!

This only happens for v2.0 M5, bearing in mind that v2.0 is still in beta and has bugs. It was only boot.img that didn't flash anyway, so all you had to do was flash it manually

Well, this is incredible !! Worked for me !! However it didn't go without some issues. I also encountered "waiting for device", so I didn't know what. I did install some drivers a day earlier, but they didn't seem to work properly. However in the KDZ update map you can find the installer for the right drivers. You didn't mention it explicitly, but I found out myself (or am I wrong ?). I took the risc of bricking my phone because I never modded my phone before, so this was all new to me. What I did during a day or 2 is reading out everything very good and letting it penetrate my mind. Learned a lot about rooting, fastbooting and what it all meant. So I started up the process. Had to redo it 2 times (only because of my impatience) and suddenly !!!!! it worked.haha !!! I now have the gingerbread on my gt and loving it. Seeking out the language whas a bit difficult because some russian letters changed a bit so I couldn't be sure. Tried some and there it was ! Even in dutch ! Unbelievable. I am a woman and 47 years old and I could do it, so with a bit of patience, studying the tutorial and reading on the web, you should get there. Leaves me to express my admiration to the people who developped this rom and those who take the effort to explain it propperly to semi-noobs and noobs or whatever.
Do you know i had most fun while studying it and installing it ?
I became smarter again ;-)
Thx guys !!!

Default can't seem to assign ringtones

I've modded my LG with this rom and now I cannot set a ringtone. I assign one but when the phone rings he chooses a song out of my media map, and I cannot change it. Tried almost everything. Can anyone help me with this ?

EDIT: Oooooh! Just tried again and now fileserve is saying 'file not found'

Thanks for the nice program. Here are some of the issues I ran into:

1) make sure that LG's USB drivers are installed
2) disable LG's virtual modem in Windows
3) make sure you have a reasonable size for your Windows swap/virtual memory file
4) install android SDK and android USB drivers
5) turn on USB debugging and turn off "mass storage"
6) I used a Baltic Black 2.1 rom to get fastboot capability
7) The camera button is the lower one on the right side
8) The icon to switch to english has an "A".
9) Find and install Google's apps when done.

If the apps for those wigets are on the SD card they will not show, move the app to the phone and it should work

Install via recovery - exe's can have major issues as they are a program rather than an image. You can find the link to the latest update and how to install via recovery in the other 2.3.4 thread.

Came back from holiday and saw there was an update....joehoe !!!
Installed it immediatly and it is working fine without loosing any data !
This is so GREAT !!!
I even bought an LG for 60 $ for my son from someone who didn't like it , phone was brandnew, just for having the pleasure of flashing it with the same rom as mine, and now we can play together

This is my first update from official android 2.1 and i'm hooked on my LG GT540 again! But...

1) Need for speed SHIFT and Raging Thunder 2 don't work on my gt540 anymore
with need for speed it only gets to the EA logo then returns me to the previous screen I was on. With raging thunder it says 'authorizing license' then goes to the 'downloading game data to your SD card. one time only download' message. The download bar comes on but when it completes, it returns me to my previous screen again and if I launch the app again the whole process repeats! Plz help!

2) Is there any way of getting official android 2.2 and 2.3 apps after mod has been successfully installed?

P.S. I'm a newbie and this is my first ever message so tell me if i've done sumthin wrong
Any answers much appreciated.

You'll need to extract the first zip file and use the next zip file inside that to do the recovery with

If you're running 2.3.5 it will say the same as my signature. Otherwise you're not running 2.3.5

You may need to reflash again.

Hi! In my country somebody also made ​​a ROM for GT540 based on 2.3.2 and he creates a d2s (data to system, these partitions are reversed) release. With this method there will be ~200 MB free internal storage after install instead of ~80 or whatever.


My question is: how much internal storage will I have after CM 7.1 v2 RC3 installation and will there be a data to system release? (If there is nothing something like that, maybe I create.)
With moving apps to sd I have 30 MB free space, so I need this version.

If you follow the original thread 2.3.4 there is a how to for creating a d2s, which will stay with each update you make.
In regards to your question about how much space is left I'm unsure as I already had d2s before updating to 2.3.5

You'll need to find a new system.img file or try flashing the rom via fastboot or recovery as he hasn't been on in a long time.

Your best bet is to install via recovery.

I upgraded from 2.3.4 to 2.3.5 using your upgrade method, and all was fine.

A few days later though, it appears my phone doesn't turn on past the 'blue circle CyanogenMod' splash page and just sticks on that screen, the only way I've managed to get it to turn on is to plug it into the computer with the USB lead, much like a tethered jailbreak on an apple device. However this method is not convenient as I'm currently away from home without a lead - yup, no phone while I'm away.

Any ideas?

As per my previous post...

you may need to install via recovery. If you can access the sd card copy the extracted zip file over and flash through clockwork mod. If your bootlooping you have access to recovery.

Hey i just wanted to thank you everything works fine and faster than 2.1 from LG.This was my first unofficial update done it with no problems.

Only thing that worried me a bit was that you did write that some parts would be done in 15 minutes in my case it was betwean 5-7 minuts still phone works fine with 2.3.5 so i quess it's done right maybe my notebook is too fast

Only thing left is im doing battery callibration and i got stuck at 99% 4195mV is that correct? it never charged too 100% always 99%... If someone would be kind and give me answear my phone is still pluged it into charger thanks

Also is 700Mhz safe for cpu i did read people overclock up to 800-825Mhz with no problem still i don't want to over do it.And i set memory compresion to 26%.

And again thanks works like a charm.

Edit: Ok i did calibrate my battery at those settings 99% 4195mV.

Also on 2.1 i could listen to mp3 for about 10 hours and it took 40-50% of battery is that correct?

It won't reach 100%

And yes, anything up to 825Mhz is fine.

As for the mp3 - I'm not sure.
