Seems to be working so far. My wifi hasn't disconnected after being idle for a while.

The camera still needs work (like you said). The default exposure should be what's +1 now. That would fix the dark camera problem. Also, +1 and +2 are reversed. +2 should be brighter. It's very close to being perfect. The dark camera is the #1 thing that's bothered me since flashing aospCMod a few months ago. Your ROM and BobZhome's ROM are the first that have at least attempted to fix it.

What is "added video icon to app drawer"? I'm using Launcher Pro. Are you talking about the green "Videos" icon? Not sure what you're talking about.

Blarf is looking into the camera exposure values, he knows more about the camera than the original coders!

Yes, the green box icon is the standard gingerbread icon for videos. Takes you to a list of just videos instead of through the gallery where all your pics are.

I installed the Experimental Green Machine Lean ROM
I like the theme better than the last, the pull down was a little to busy with two green machine texts and a cyanogen mod text right over the widgets.
Now just one Green Machine on the pull down bar at the bottom.
I think it might work to put (CM7)IHO or Gingerbread, or Cyanogen Mod 7.1_IHO in the Carrier name area,but nothing over the widgets.
Because its lean it seems to boot up a lot faster.(or it could be because I'm running V6 Supercharger)
WiFi and 3G connectivity seems a bit faster from screen off(Still just a tad sluggish, but not bad)
Got the CPU speed up to 825HZ before freeze up on the benchmark testing.(1235 Quadrant Standard score). 787hz scored a 1206.
I don't lose the Temp monitor Icon in task bar at boot anymore.
Headset still only works when playing music, won't work on phone calls.
Took a few tries, but the Bluetooth is connected. In call quality is good.
Text messaging works fine. Receiving pictures didn't work(it looked like it did but when I clicked on the download Icon, nothing happened)
I will let you know the time off charge and the battery temp:screen on for an hour,and screen on for 15min in car middle of the day(Temp controls vacuum block is not functioning properly, so no Air conditioning)

Thanks for the feedback, please let me know if you have continued problems receiving (downloading) picture mms. That should be working fine, I tested it with a friend this morning before releasing this build.

Gotta find the time to work on the mic issues, especially with headsets. The audio routing is a maze filled with spider webs.

I'll double check on the Picture mms. Remember......(I'm not just a member,I'm a "Nuub")
It could very well be I'm not doing something right. I'll try it with with the WiFi off and just the 3G turned on(that was probably the problem).
I'll have to wait for someone who knows how to send a picture mms to get off work.
This is the best ROM so far. Having the theme already incorporated into it seem to be helping with the speed.
If there was a way to get the gapps incorporated into it that would really be something(nobody else has managed that one on a CM7 ROM)

Just flashed the updated Backside ROM. Whatever you did seems to have fixed my WIFI issues. Great job! Initially I flashed the Green Machine Lean ROM because i really prefer stock android and hate extra bloatware, but I just can't stand the Green Machine theme. I'm sure there's a way to disable it but i don't have the patience to figure out. And seriously, WTH is with the start up sound? It was loud, annoying, and dragged on forever. It's the only blemish to this ROM. I'm absolutely going to remove it. Other than that, keep up the great work, gracias!

[edit]I'm trying to remove android_audio.mp3 using File Manager, but it wont let me do anything to it. I click delete, it says "Could not delete". I click rename, it says "Could not rename". I click move, it says "Could not move" etc.. Is there another program I'm supposed to use to get rid of it?

Download ES File explorer from the market, and in it's settings scroll down to Root Settings and check both Root Explorer and Mount File System. Once that's done, you can change any file you want.

Hey JerryScript, Would the picture mms coming from an IPhone with a 960x640 resolution be the problem. I tried it with just the 3g and still no go.

Andy, for some reason VM has issues receiving mms from iphones. This been discussed on numerous threads, both here and on other forums. It has nothing to do with the rom, it does the same thing on stock. However, I have a friend on at&t with a windows7 phone and have no problems sending and receiving mms from her.

Default Kernel fun

So I still love this rom. Not the biggest fan of the kernel as someone else has said here too. Actually flashed the XioniaRedux kernel which is more then I could ask for with performance/battery life minus usb debugging which is being worked on. plus I'm playing with data2ext4 which is functioning properly. Aosps kernel works too but XioniaRedux just seemed better in performance. I would love to see your kernel posted in flashable form since I'm a big kernel junkie. Hats off for this yummy rom.

P.S. Also playing with stagefright but have no clue if its doing much.

So I broke my old phone...long story...& got a new one but this one acts differently. Now I used gingerbreak to root the old phone and when turned on just went to the "android" logo then loaded to the home page. This one I used superoneclick to root and it starts with the silver then red "lg" logos. My Buddy tells me this means it's not fully rooted. More importantly my last phone was always overclocked to 864 mhz with no problem, completely stable. This phone reboots at 787 mhz. It pisses me off that I use the same roms and supposedly the same hardware with such different results. I no longer find this phone as functional nor enjoyable. As many of you are more experienced, what are your thoughts? Will this phone ever perform nearly as well as my last optimus v?

New build of BACKside-IHO is ready. Several changes to try out:
-Sound always playing through the speaker regardless of settings has been fixed
-BobZ's wifi fix included and another small tweak (if this build fixes issues, wifi bug should be fixable)
-Updated to Blarf's newest kernel r1.2, tweaks for battery and performance
-Camera exposure mostly fixed, default value may still be too dark
-Removed bootsound for now due to overwhelming requests , but you can enable it using eollie's script.

BACKside-IHO-08102011.zip

@ECTOTHERM: Each phone overclocks to a different stable level, it's due to the inherent flaws that occur in the chip's manufacturing process. To test if you are rooted, download Terminal emulator from the Market, and open it and type in:

su

If you get a # sign, you are rooted, if it remains a $sign, you are not rooted.

Question Bootsound

Who's eollie, and where can I find his script? Love this ROM, but am missing the ability to have my Windows 95 startup sound play every time I turn my phone on. I have the android_audio.mp3 in the proper spot, but it's not working in today's bake.

So I really want to continue using this ROM, mainly because I'm a sucker for that awesome screen on/off anim and the ease of screenshots...plus, who doesn't love Gingerbread?!

But I've found that this ROM is very, very unstable on my phone. I've been getting lots of force closes, especially with ADW.Launcher (which I never had issues with when running Bumblebee!), and now it's started randomly rebooting. A fresh install did nothing to alleviate the problem - I reflashed yesterday night and I'm still getting all of the same issues.

Can anybody help me fix the issues I'm having? Like I said, I want to continue using this ROM, but if I can't fix these things I'm going to have to go back to Bumblebee....

You have xionia recovery installed,don't you. It doesn't work to well with the IHO ROM's try installing ClockWorkMod v3.2.0.1(not3.2.0) .Then make sure you wipe cache partition,Dalvik cache,wipe data/factory reset.Then format boot,system,data,cache. Once this is done you only have to wipe cache and dalvik cache to install a update.

I found a weird bug with the Android Market. I think this started a few releases ago.

Whenever I download a new app from the Market, it'll say "updating (app name)" in the notification screen instead of "installing (app name)". This happens on apps that I've never downloaded before, so it should not say "updating". Once it's done it'll say "sucessfully updated".

The animated green download arrow in the status bar and the "updating" item in the notification screen do not go away until I hit the clear button on the notification screen.

Here are a few screenshots:

I don't have Xionia. I use CWM.

I have a few friends with iPhones. Whenever they try to send me an iPhone screenshot over MMS, it'll show up as a blank message in the Messaging app. I found a way around this. If you use Handcent SMS, do a long press on the blank message, and download the attachment. The picture they sent over MMS will be in the Gallery app.

SORRY for assuming. It's just that your symptoms are the same as using the xionia recovery with this ROM. Did you wipe everything mentioned? Did you install the theme with the ROM? If you installed the theme with the ROM then try installing the ROM only. Wait till you get it just how you like it with apps and what not(just don't overclock it yet). Reboot a couple of times then install the theme. Should cure what ails it.

You might get a picture of you with a really big fish say 8-10 lbs and post as your avatar. Now that would be a really cool Avatar(picture).
How do you like the ROM so far.

Hmmm. So flashing the iho recovery helps with the performance of the kernel? I have been using xionia recovery which would make perfect sense why I'm running this rom flawlessly with the xioniaredux kernel.

Very Interesting! I got to remember this. The biggest reason is that the Xionia recovery doesn't seem to wipe thoroughly enough for the new IHO ROMS. Or so we thought. Might have to rethink that one. Guess I'm going to have to try the xioniaredux kernel. You know where it can be found(is this in the optimus s threads). I'll try it with the current recovery then the xionia.

Just google xioniaredux and bingo
And ya its for the s. Key swap ftw!

This inst exactly the script but this is what i have been using to enable the boot up sound before it was ever included in this ROM. It is not mine so I do not take credit for it. but like i said it worked for me.

Thanks. I don't know if this will help but read this Optimus v Root Questions
JerryScript describes a wireless adb app(It really works to) that will allow you to run commands from your computer to your phone without the USB cable. I don't know if it will work for the Mass storage ,but I guess I'm going to have to try it myself.EDIT: I changed my recovery from my PC with out hooking up a USB cable to the phone. But I haven't figured out how to do mass storage or even if it will. As JerryScript said: if your having trouble with installing the drivers this is the way to go.

Is anyone having a problem rebooting when you clik the camera button?? 9 times out of 10 if I clik the camera button it immediately reboots. It has done that with the last two builds for me. Didn't see if anyone posted about this yet.

Are you overclocked? I know in aosp there was a problem where if the processor was overclocked too high and you tried opening the camera your phone would reboot. If thats the case bring down the frequency and give it another go.

If the camera force closes, you most likely are overclocked too high. That is the number one cause of camera related crashes.

Reboot a couple of times then install the theme. Should cure what ails it.
Sorry if I sounded blunt, lol. I was in a rush and typing in a hurry always makes me sound really rude. My apologies.

I did a full wipe prior to installing the ROM, and I installed it with the theme, hated the theme, wiped it, and installed it without the theme. I had this issue with the 07302011 build too, which is why I was in the thread to begin with (to download the 0808 build), but I'm still having the issue with 0808.

Oh, and I haven't done anything with overclocking on BACKside yet...so I'm not sure it's an overclocking issue (unless BACKside overclocks itself by default?).

By default it's set to 600MHz-245MHz so I guess this is just something For JerryScript to analyze. Sorry I wasn't any help. TO JerryScript: just thought I'd mention that the headset works in call mode now!! The button on the mic doesn't function though. I'm running Build# 08102011 now. I still have the lean ROM backed up.

@nyssa: The 0808 builds had some experimental code, but you are the only one reporting these issues. The latest 0810 build has been reported so far to be the stablest yet.

Here are the proper steps for a full wipe and restore:

1) With phone still booted up, use Titanium Backup or MyBackup to backup your apps

2) In recovery, first create a nandroid backup

3) Still in recovery, go under mounts and format the following: data, boot, system, cache

4) Still in recovery, flash the ROM zip file, then the gapps zip file, then reboot

5) Once your phone boots up, and you get through the Google sign-in, go to the market and download Titanium Backup

6) Once Titanium Backup is running, restore your apps, NOT SYSTEM APPS, AND DO NOT RESTORE DATA YET.

7) Reboot

8) Using Titanium Backup, restore apps that had data you need, BUT STILL DO NOT RESTORE SYSTEM APPS OR SYSTEM DATA!

The two main causes of issues after flashing a ROM are improper wipes (always format when coming from a different ROM), and improper restoration of apps (never restore system apps or system data). The next most common cause of issues is bad downloads, so check the md5sum.

@yogi: I wish all phones had the exact same capabilites, would make things easier for bug tracking!

@AndyOpie: As always, thanks for testing the builds, and thanks for helping everyone out!

OK silly question, well maybe not so silly. How would someone go about checking the md5sum. I read that downloading from your phone has a higher chance of allowing corruption because of the slower download speed.

I'll try again and see how it goes...thanks for the reply, and I hope I can keep using this ROM because I really do like it.

Also, I'm going to PM you about something else, if that's alright (not support type questions).

So I installed this once awhile ago, wasn't working for me. I went with a few other ROMs and was on Bumblebee for a while. I installed the updated version of this one, and I was wondering, the reboot to recovery option isn't in the power drop down. Is it supposed to be that way, or is there something wrong with my install?

Open Terminal emulator, then cd into the directory you have the file to check in (ie cd /sdcard), then type md5sum NAME_OF_FILE, takes about 15 seconds to process.

The reboot option in the power dropdown opens a sub menu with three options: reboot (normal), recovery (obvious), and bootloader (fastboot).

I don't know if it's the ROM or V6 supercharger(I ran option #2)But Wow! I forgot to increase the CPU speed to where I like it(787MHz) and didn't even notice. Angry Birds is way smoother at 600MHz than it should be. I noticed just the faintest amount of lag when the game moved back to the slingshot. Stock, Harmonia ,and Bumblebee at 600MHz couldn't even compare.I'll just keep it there and see how the temp.and time off charge ends up after a day.
EDIT: I forgot that I went back to the Experimental Green Machine Lean. Well I'll still check it for a comparison. Then tomorrow I will restore Build #08102011 and check it out and bechmark at 600MHz and at 787MHz and see which one performs better.(I kinda like the boot audio of the Experimental).

Its the ROM. That functionality is gone for me too since the 08/10 update. Also, I'm having issues with USB mass storage now.

Thanks for the reply~ So far I'm not having any issues with the USB mass storage. Hope you get those settled.

Anyone have a fix for these issues, both usb mass storage and live wallpapers on the 8/10 rom?

thanks~

Go to menu/settings/applications/development/check USB debugging on/off/on in rapid succession. Then plug your phone into your computer. You should see the Icon to the left in the notificaction bar. Open the pulldown and select USB connect. If it still doesn't work,You might think about installing a fresh set of USB drivers for the phone onto your PC.

Go to menu/ wallpaper, and describe everything you see. If you see something that says configure,press it.
I've got mutipicture Live Wallpaper, with Picasa as well. It works fine on this ROM
