Default [ROM] - gROM 2.2 - 10/16 - GB - With Flash - Yes, FLASH!

About gROM
  • gROM was designed to be a cleaned up Sprint Stock ROM based on the latest Gingerbead 2.3.3 release. It has been tweaked and tested. All apps in the ROM are up to date!
  • I removed all of the Sprint bloatware and made some minor changes under the hood and tweaked it to perfection. Its complimented with a small but useful assortment of applications.
  • Read post #2 for important info BEFORE you attempt to flash this ROM!

Features
  • ROM Updater
  • Full Adobe Flash
  • Overclocked to 748MHZ with Drew's V6.2 Kernel - See post #2 for more info!
  • Ad Blocking - ES File Explorer
  • No Frills CPU Control - SenseClock - Quick Reboot - WiFi Tether -DSP manager -Evo 3D Ringtones / Alarms / Alerts
  • Dalvik Cache tweak for +50MB's of internal storage - All Google Apps up tp date as of 10/5 - Removed Sprint bloatware!ved Sprint bloatware!

About ROM Updater
  • ROM Updater is an application that allows you to download Themes, Ringtones, Fonts and more from inside the application! ROM Updater will also allow, of course, updated ROM's to be download. All of this done from inside the OS then automatically flashed in recovery for you! ROM Updater is temperamental and may occasionally force close from time to time when viewing screenshots. A complete rewrite is in process but I am more than sure you will be happy with this addition!
  • ROM Updater needs to be configured for first use! For ROM Updater configuration instructions read more HERE!
  • For a list of all mods in the ROM updater see HERE

Changes in 2.2 - 10/16/11
  • Added: Full Adobe Flash 10.2.1

Default Important Info!

Prerequisites
About Overclocking
  • Unfortunately not all devices are created equal! Some devices can be overclocked further than others.
  • The ROM is set to 748MHZ. I feel that is a good blend of stability, speed and battery performance.
  • You may choose to increase or decrease the speed with the included application. If you go past 748MHZ you do so at your own risk!
  • My device can be clocked all the way to 806MHZ and preforms perfectly. Yours may not! You have been warned :-X

How to Flash
  • Download ROM and place on the root of your SD Card
  • Boot into recovery mode
  • Wipe Data / Factory Reset
  • Flash ROM
  • Boot into OS

Change Log
  • Complete gROM Change Log is HERE

Known Issues
  • After adding the Power Control Widget to workspace / desktop you will need to reboot one time.

Thanks!!! Does it have free WiFi Hotspot capability? I'm still on rev ZVC (and have refused to accept rev ZVD) so that I can enjoy free WiFi Hotspot functionality (via Quicksettings). Free WiFi Hotspost is far more imporatant to me than any of the new features of Gingerbread.

At this time you will need to use the WiFi tether app that is readily available in the market. I haven't tested it yet but am doing so right now.

I just checked the Android market and there are a couple dozen WiFi tethering apps, but I didn't see one called "WiFi Tether".
1) Would you please let me know the exact app name (and developer)?
2) May I assume that you're NOT paying Sprint for WiFi Hotspot service?

The exact app you need it this on: https://market.android.com/details?id=android.tether

This will allow free tethering with no subscription service from Sprint.

Sorry, please do not mirror. I just test downloaded and sustained over 20 megabits a second. That 2 megabytes a second. Look at attached screenshot.

What speeds are you seeing and do you live in FL?

No, not in Florida. I was getting about 50 - 100 kB/s. Just tried again and it started out at about 1 MB/s, but looks like I get throttled down to about 250 - 150 kB/s. I ran a speedtest and I'm getting 15 Mbps down. It downloaded though, so no biggy.

Any help would be appreciated. I just finished updating and all phone settings are now listed as unknown. I've installed a number of other roms before without a problem.

Can you screenshot? I have not heard of this before?

Also did you...

1. Clean install?
2. Restore anything from back up?

Gogin to this ROM version it is highly recommended that you do a full wipe. As far as contacts, Google should restore those when you log in to it again. Email is also on Google's server. As far as texts I believe there are some market apps that can help you there.

Let me know if you need any help!

I lost headset audio for phone calls with the OTA update to 2.3.3. If I root and load your ROM, will I get that back?

Thanks,

Some people have reported no issues but others have reported the issue so I cannot say with certainty because I do not have a wired headset. I think this is a glitch with the update. I am actively pursuing the issue at this time.

Thanks for looking into this. I'm not too keen on rooting the phone right now, but if you can fix the audio problems I'll dive in feet first, head first, whatever. As far as your testing for this one goes, you don't need a wired headset. I communicated my problem poorly. I used to just plug the headphone jack into speakers (aux in on my car) and use the phone's mic for calls. You could replicate the same thing with regular headphones or a pair of computer speakers. I'd be interested to hear if anyone can still use this feature... I haven't seen anything yet on multiple forums, but that doesn't mean some people aren't affected.

2.3.3: No call sound through headphone jack?

Well, I do use the headphones every night as just that. I listen to a podcast as I fall asleep. So I know that much works. Still am looking for my wired headset.

Default no phone info #2

Everything installs well... but I don't get mobile data... no phone recognition. I can get wifi going, but continues to search for service, no bars, nada. Am I missing a simple setting?

EDIT: I'm rooted, Xionia recovery... and going from cyanogen mod 7 ROM to this ROM. I wiped all data, cache, and Davlik cache. I have a feeling I missed something!

Updated: WiFi Tether to 3.1B6

To Over Clock you will need: GingerKernel v04 (OC) - [KERNEL][GB/CM7] GingerKernel v04 (OC) - Android Forums and an overclocking app such as SetCPU, etc. With only brief testing I feel this kernel is compatible with the ROM. Always make a Nandroid backup before flashing any add on!



Enjoy!

Are the following Sprint/LG apps built-into this ROM?
1) SprintTV (This is critical for me.)
2) Voicemail. (I assume this is in there.)
3) News & Weather (Dont' care much.)

If these apps aren't built-in, how would I add them?

Are the following stock Google/Android apps built-into this ROM?
Browser
Calculator
Calendar
Camcorder
Camera
Clock
Contacts
Email
Gallery
Gmail
Market
Messaging
Music
Phone
Voice Search (and tied to Voice Search button on the phone).

If these apps aren't built-in, how would I add them?

This thread is highly outdated.
This is the original post by the creator of the rom
[ROM] - gROM 2.1 - 10/8 - GB - OC'ed - Infinite Possibilities - Android Forums

As for your questions.
The author removed all Sprint apps and bloatware. Apps can be downloaded separately. There is a thread somewhere that points to the zip with all of the apk's.

The rom includes all Google stock apps mentioned, plus a few extras as described in the original thread.

Im currently running the latest g-rom (2.1) and it works great. My only complaint is the keyboard sensitivity, which seems to be fixing itself over time.

Just got it running and am loving it!
I'm looking for a way to get the Home and Search hard key functionality back, but other than that this is by far the slickest and most battery-value efficient rom in m.h.o. =)
Thanks a lot!

Default Optimus lost all mobile data

So, I've been rooted. Been running Reborn ROM.

Finally convince the wife to let me switch ROMs.

Did my wipes, resets, and flashed ROM. Now when booted, have no mobile signal.

Contacted Sprint, they couldn't reset by phone. I seem to recall having a similar issue a while back with my Evo. Took it to a Sprint store and I was reset within 2 minutes.

Anybody know, is there a "process" I need to request from Sprint that makes a reset simple by phone? Or, am I stuck taking my phone in?

I was just wondering how did you get adobe flash to work on the Optimus S when Adobe stated themselves there was no way to support the processor on the Optimus?

I have a ROOTED Optimus S with ZVH radio base band.
I loaded optiROM 1.1 and is working for voice BUT my data speed has gone to 1xRTT land and it does not come back to 3G.

I am getting an average of 140kbps dowload speeds. I am sitting less than 500m from a tower with clear LoS to the tower. If the phone had 10 bars, they would be lit up. I am getting something like -40dBM signal. So there is no coverage issue. Other devices, on stock Sprint stock ROMs are downloading @ 1.5-2.0mbps at the same location.

I loaded the GingerKernel v08.1, NOW....

I want to load gROM2.2 on this phone to see if I get my 3G back.

I tried following these instructions found at androidcentral.com

1. Copied rom to root of the sdcard (ranamed gROM2.2.zip to update.zip)
2. Rebooted into recovery
3. Wiped/Factory Reset (Including cache and davlick cache)
4. Chose to install update.zip from sdcard
5. It starts, then blows up and gives me an (unknown error 0) - Could not open /mnt/sdcard/update.zip

I also tried, installing zip file from sd card and selecting the actual update.zip and no dice.

Please help me get gROM on my LG Optimus S and get my 3G speeds back.

delete the current file and download it again.......when you get to the boot screen, disable signature verification and script asserts, then run it. I had the same issue and doing these steps worked like a charm

You might try "Install zip from sd card" instead of update.zip from sd card.
At step 3 choose the forementioned.
At next screen turn off signature verification first.
Then, choose the zip file you transferred to your sd card. It does not have to be named "update.zip"
Follow the prompts and your golden.
I'm using the Xionia custom recovery built of clockworkmod. If you don't have it, try it.
Flash worked perfectly, everything works, 3g and all.

Good luck.

Thanks Scott for all your work. ROM works great on my Optimus. Only thing is phone icon on sticky does not go to phone. It pulls up the contact list. I personally like to have the phone icon go to the phone and set a link on my home screen to my contacts. Any way to set it back to go to phone. (sorry, somewhat of a newbie to modding phones. 18 yr vet of computer service and repair, so I do understand most of what's here...hehe) Thanks again for your hard work.
