Default [GUIDE] Porting LG Vortex and Optimus T/V/S ROMS to the M!

This is a guide to port ROMS from the Optimus T/V/S

Edit:
Optimus T will sometimes have CDMA radio issues due to the fact it is a GSM phone
Optimus One will also flash after this guide BUT it is also a GSM phone so radio will not work (sometimes 0.o)
I will update this when I (or someone else) fixes the problem.
Thanks to Primed for finding the files that fix the CDMA radio, creating a zip with only the files that have to be replaced, and for the list below

What works:
Everything, except we're unsure about data and MMS

Try Flashing MMS after flashing ported ROM:
[GUIDE] How to fix MMS with Gingerbread/CM7 ROMS

EDIT: Thanks alfickfor confirming data (yea it works )

Steps:

1. Download a ROM for the T, V, or S

2. Replace the files as shown below (you must NOT unzip and rezip, you can copy and replace by using WinZip or 7Zip, both programs can be found on google.com) (Copy the files from this zip, do not flash it)

3. Copy the ROM to microSD card

In Recovery:

4. Make nandroid backup of your current ROM

5. Wipe Data/Factory Reset

6. Wipe Cache

7. Wipe Dalvik-Cache

8. Wipe Battery Stats

9. Now flash that ROM and post your results

10. Don't forget to say "Thanks"

Here's a list of files that must be replaced in any gingerbread/(maybe froyo) ROM from an Optimus T/V/S and LG Vortex

What to replace:
In the root directory of the zip file replace:
File:
boot.img

In /system/bin replace:
Files:
am
ami304d
bmgr
brcm_patchram_plus
hci_attach
fix_permissions
ime
input
monkey
pm
port-bridge
rild
servicemanager
vold

In /system/etc replace:
Folders:
bluetooth
dhcpd
firmware
permissions
ppp
wifi
wl
Files:
apns-conf.xml
dbus.conf
gps.conf
hosts
media-profiles.xml
resolv.conf
vold.fstab

In /system/lib replace:
Folders:
modules
hw
egl
Files:
libauth.so
libcm.so
libbluedroid.so
libbluetooth.so
libbluetoothd.so
libcamera.so
libcameraservice.so
libdiag.so
libdbus.so
libdss.so
libdsm.so
libdll.so
libgsl.so
libgstk_exp.so
libmiscta.so
libmmgsdilib.so
libmmipl.so
libmmjpeg.so
liblog.so
libnv.so
liboem_rapi.so
liboemcamera.so
libhardware_legacy.so
liboncrpc.so
libpbmlib.so
libqmi.so
libqueue.so
libril.so
libril-qc-1.so
libsensorservice.so
libwebcore.so
libwms.so
libwmsts.so

In /system/usr I replaced:
Folders:
keychars
keylayout

In /system/xbin I replaced:
Files:
hcitool
hcidump
hciconfig

And finally, in /system replace:
File:
build.prop

This should work for all Roms (Except ICS-based ROM's) from the Lg Optimus T, V, S, and the LG Vortex. Test this out, and give your feedback!
Note: the Optimus C does not have to be ported, it is a twin of the Optimus M

Update!
If you get a status 7 error, in the zipped ROM that you are porting, go to:

/META-INF/com/google/android/

Open updater-script with a script editor, notepad, or gedit if you use linux
Delete the first line of code (all the way up to the first semicolon you see) and delete the first semi-colon as well
SeemsLegit likes this.

If the ROM you port says to download Gapps, download the gapss that it says to download and flash it the same way you do with other gapps

so the C would still have to be ported or what exactly are you trying to say, because just about everything works with porting a themed ICS gingerbread ROM from the OV....
We ported an MIUI ROM from the OV too and ringtones is just about the only thing that doesn't work.
And thanks for the info

No, but ubuntu has a pretty good built in archive editor and extractor. And if that doesn't work there's a lot of other ones for linux too.

Thats because the updater-script isn't compatible with CWM (Which is weird because it should be) Just install a different recovery with the app "Flash Image GUI"

status 7 or 6 is bad assert check aka the build.prop isnt matching for the model etc etc. And what BobZhome said is correct, meaning you are playing with fire.

That check is written in the updater script and all you have to do is remove the first line of that script, I'm using the optimus v new gingerbread MIUI right now its working great, no FCs, everything that it says works, works, everything that it says doesn't work doesn't work.....and no not the LeWa port that Primed has right now.

correct and 'pose' to be able to disable the check in CWM too, tho I rarely have luck with it actually working lol.

If it works, it works,

I think the partition props in the boardconfig are mainly for recovery as it gets compiled along with CM7/9 too.

Well if its mainly for recovery then fire would be messing with other recoveries and I tried flashing optimus V's new touch recovery, it put it in fastboot and I was able to fix it with no problems nor losing any data at all....my phone is working great, except the reboot issue...

Disabling assert check doesn't work......someone has tried that before and no luck, I removed the first line in the script and it flashed with no problems for him, I flashed the one that did have problems for him and it flashed for me just fine and I didn't disable assert check, sometimes it will accept it and some other ROMS it won't and it may also have something to do with basebands.....does the optimus m have different basebands?

I downloaded the latest version of the I.H.O. Backside rom for the optimus V.
ported it using the files in this thread flashed it and it is working great!
jury is still out on the mms. I used the playful god fix. tried to send a picture to a friend to test it and it seamed to be taking a long time. I don't use this feature often enough (matter of fact this is the first time) to know how long it takes. Using GO sms it sent it to a cloud I think but my friend has not responded yet. The wifi and 3g are working and it's running very smooth. I also dark tremor'd it using the latest version of that script and it worked beautifully as well. Thank you this opens a lot more doors and windows for my little m

we ported that ROM already and we got MMS working on it. I may update this guide later on how to get MMS working with ported ROM
that would be great. like I said I tried the playful god fix and also found several versions of metropcs APN settings none of which work.
the menu screen usually disappears when I save it and have to reset to default. thanks to all of you for your continual help

that the backside rom would not flash. I saw this morning that you posted the backside v0.3 I'm going to backup this one and flash your port.
I also have reppard and bobzhome backed up and running well with the apps i want on them and dark tremored. I rooted my phone and flashed my first rom on 1-22-12 so I have a lot of catching up to do.
does the mms work out of the box on the backside v 0.3?

Erm... This didn't work. I used it with this ROM and I don't think most ROMs take more than half an hour to boot up.

Some of them don't work. Try porting one I've ported already, like BACKside. If you get the same problem then you messed up somewhere
