I have always used firefox, and have not had many of the problems reported, though I may be the exception yada yada.

Im running on the teamchickeneater rom could you do the boot.img thing with that rom?
I will go back to the cm7 when I can get everything I use to work but at the moment a few things are not.

Alright I repacked and resigned the update and included the md5 sum check in the original post. I haven't figured out why people are getting bootloops as i have not had even one boot loop but hopefully this will solve some of the problem. If the sum check doesnt match then dont flash it, redownload it and check again. sorry for any inconvenience.

You know maybe what you could do would be to integrate your new Kernel into this ROM so it is 1 package. Mabye that way we wont have to flash 2 things which might lead to a possible error on our part. Idk what to say anymore lol.

But let me try this new version i will download it with internet explorer.

Make sure the sum checks match. Seeing as how my only internet is tethering at the moment, I dont think I'll be uploading another 85 mb rom image anytime soon =). This update should be no different, all its doing is replacing the boot.img with one i made from the GBrom in the first place. So its the same thing. If this doesn't work as an update it more than likely will not work for you as a full rom package. I could be wrong though. What I did to test was wipe both cache options in custom recovery. Flashed the GB rom without the kernel update. Immediately after that I flashed the kernel update. I did this without rebooting. Everything works....for me that is.

Can someone cite some evidence for this insanity? This is the only place I've ever seen where everyone thinks IE is the only browser capable of downloads. I've been using Opera and Firefox for years and have never had an issue with messed up downloads.

Please cite some evidence for this insanity or stop spreading it around, it's absurd.

Downloaded new kernel. Wiped both caches and flashed. Boot loop again.

This was a fresh flash of cm7 last night. It had a few apps installed and I changed the cpu speed setting, i set cpu scaling every time I reboot the phone to save battery could this do it?

Don't really know whats different here.

Ran the md5, it's all good, I refuse to download with IE Because the md5 checks out, its not a crazy one off opera downloading error.

I would have to agree. I run a single boot, completely slackware linux which obviously doesn't have IE. I use firefox and Opera and haven't had any issues as well. The sum check should be enough to confirm a good download. I dont know how to do this in windows but in linux just type md5sum filename.zip.

Should I wipe ALL data?

Do not bother wiping all data. I tried it already same result it will boot loop. I think the problem is with certain phones like yours and mine.

I just installed the Stock kernel posted earlier in this thread. Did not fix boot loop.

Only thing that fixes loop is re flashing rom.

This has got to be an issue with the phone I would guess. The only thing about this kernel I changed was the max clock speed and adding an interactive governor. Other than that is the same .config file from stock with those 2 changes. I haven't experienced a boot loop ever so it's hard for me to diagnose. If someone could get adb shell logcat working during a boot loop it may provide some hints. Could it be I set the Max Speed higher than your phones can handle? I could try a lower max with the next update, with SetCPU you can go higher than the max set by the config anyway so it wouldnt limit people who's phones can go higher. I am consistently stable at 787. 806 is fairly stable but I did notice I get some FC on some apps. Alright, anyone care to weigh in? Any thoughts or ideas?

You are very welcome. Did you flash the new one i uploaded today and test the WiFi? I need confirmation that the new update and wifi are working from someone.

My monitor is messed up and it has a real hard time getting a new signal to turn powersave off so I'm scared to even try to boot into linux. I'm installing sdk on this windows install to try and get a log. Hopefully I'll have a something in a little while...

I recommend lowering the max speed to the default 600 that way it works for everyone. Then people can fine tune it themselves to their phones unique processors. This way we cut back on any potential problems. At least it gets rid of the Processor Variable of our problem.

My wifi works on Cyanogen mod without the OC kernel Cyanogen ROCKS! Thanks Reppard

Singing along at 787 MHz in GB, no bootloops, but functioning WiFi and graphics.

Still have some program crashes (unrelated to OC), but this is pretty sweet so far.

That's the confirmation I was looking for . It is most definitely the phones, probably due to the Max speed I set. No other reason it would work great for us and boot loop for others. I will work on compiling another kernel with a lower Max when I get off work. Then we can focus on some other kernel tweaks!

I would suggest to anyone with boot looping to uninstall setcpu before adding this kernel.

See if you still get boot loop

I can't get logcat to work without the phone being fully booted in a working kernel. I don't know what I'm doing wrong...

EDIT: logcat works right as the cyanogen animation starts with a working kernel. The boot loop never makes it to there for me. I don't know if there is any other way to get a log from the initial boot?

the only thing I could get logcat to do was post that it couldn't find /system/bin/sh and this only happens sometimes. so I KNOW it's atleast starting adbd since that would be in the ramdisk, but it's not mounting the the rest of the system

so it would seem the system starts to boot but looses stability.

like Seirren suggested, lower the speed to 600 and then let everyone discover their own max speeds i think the top for some previous optimus M's were 74X?

not sure what I did different... i think reppard re-uploaded the update, cuz last time I downloaded it i thought it said 0.2 not signed and i also see a md5sum, so I...

re downloaded and checked the md5sum and all was good,
flashed it(though it says signed I had to disable verification)
unplugged the phone from my usb
started adb logcat
rebooted phone and plugged into usb
saw it sitting on the second lg screen for a few seconds before I saw logcat start rolling
ran outside to shout off my balcony, "I HAVE DA POWA!!!"

... i don't think the last part is necessary...

Every CPU chip is different so stable speeds will vary from phone to phone. My phone isn't stable above 787 MHz. That doesn't mean yours can't go higher

Download the zip to your sdcard.
Reboot into recovery.
Wipe your cache and dalvik cache.
Flash and reboot.

You will need setcpu or a similar program to change frequencies. I have to configure the gbrom so the cmod7 settings will have that ability. Hit the thanks button if this helps and the donate link if it really really helps

Big thanks to asadullah for organizing our mob on LG and making the source code possible!

Enjoy!


UPDATE:
Ok so I tried to compile the wifi modules from source to include with this kernel update. They compiled wifi still wasn't functioning so I think LG is being sneaky with some propietary source for those modules. Well that doesnt matter because I thought of a lazier work around!!! I just created a flashable update which includes the boot.img with the modified kernel so wifi works after this is flashed!

THIS VERSION WILL WORK WITH GB CMOD7 ONLY!
This is because I used the boot.img from the gbrom obviously BUT don't fret. I will be happy to make versions compatible with your rom of choice, you need only provide me with the boot.img from said rom. These will be posted in the reserve spot. Give her a rip. The people that had boot loop problems in the first version please report your results if you try this out.

Repacked, Resigned.

MD5 Sum: c39e68e1022b7cf52dcb5b5fd29f81ac
Everything works fine for me except if i go above 800, I set it above 800 and got the boot loop, had to take battery out and setcpu to auto detect settings to get out of that boot loop, lol ill take 787 over 600

HMM, I think he set the max cpu lower in the update, meaning its below the boot loop threshold on your phone and still higher than the threshold on my phone.

I hope I'm wrong but it would be JUST my luck to have a phone that wasn't stable 1mhz over stock...

I bought it used. For all I know it might have had 2.2 on it. Looked at the downgrade thread at first but its been trashed, so I just went on to the 2.2.1 rooting threads when I first rooted.

you're running CM07?

either way, go into your phone settings > About phone

what does your baseband & kernel report?

Under certain circumstances, I'm still getting stuck in a bootloop. Each time, wiping the Dalvik cache has cleared up the problem.

I've noticed that since using the OC kernel, the Dalvik cache is becoming huge, or so it seems as it now takes a long time to wipe.

blaxican what i did was started from scratch,
first i went into recovery and wiped everything except /sd-ext Then flashed the updated cm7 rom then rebooted,Then flashed the kernel and reboot, Then go into set cpu or whatever youre using and went from there, The first time i set it too high and had to start over because of the boot loop, so i set it to 787. Then rebooted and Set it to nvidia tegra and went to the next highest setting 816 then rebooted, Everything works ok. remember when flashing kernel just wipe cache and dalvik cach

So when mine bootloops (as it still does occasionally when it crashes due to OC) I can get it to reboot normally by wiping only Dalvik cache.

I know I sound like a broken record, but what I see consistently from those of you with bootloops is that you're reflashing the kernel at the same time, it seems.

Try this; when your phone crashes and begins bootlooping, remove the battery.

After removing the battery for a few seconds, put it back on.

Use the hardware keys to enter recovery (Vol Down + Home + Power).

Once in recovery, only wipe Dalvik cache and reboot.

Unless my phone is different (which I guess it could be) this fixes the bootloop every time. No need to reflash anything.

I have booted into recovery cleared ALL, flashed CM7, cleared both caches then flashed kernel and it still boot loops.

I've wiped both caches, flashed rom, reboot, wipe both caches, flash kernel, boot loop.

Heck I cant even flash the supposedly stock kernel posted in this thread without boot loop.
