@Jerry - That's what I did, it pairs but the keyboard doesn't seem to do anything. Do you have to select it in the settings like switching from SwiftKey to Swype? Or do you use an app like blueinput?

Here's what I did, just unpaired and tried it again and it worked:
--Turn on BT on phone
--Turn on keyboard long press scan button (above #9 key)
--on phone, select BT settings and select device
--on phone, enter 1234
--on keyboard, enter 1234 then press the Enter key (this confused me when I bought it)

It connects automatically when I turn it on after that, so long as BT is enabled on the phone. Once a text box is selected, I just type as normal. In keyboard settings, it appears automatically when I turn the keyboard on, nothing to enable, it's just there, and disappears when I turn the keyboard off.

Fn + arrow keys to navigate
Enter to select
Fn + Esc for back
Fn + Home for home
Fn + End for power
Fn + lots of different keys for search

If I go to my launcher before I put the phone to sleep, the music continues playing - it only does it when the music app is open.

Can somebody look into this?
Are you using any battery saving software? I was having a similar issue using JuiceDefender where it was turning off my data connection on my phone because it didn't recognize the TuneIn Radio app. Once I configured it to allow a data connection to stay open if TuneIn Radio was in use, everything worked great. Maybe you're experiencing a similar issue?

I've tried a few different apps from Market and none will install, same generic (non specific) error. I have rebooted several times and tried reflashing the ROM (BACKside-IHO-VM670-01102012) and several reboots. Still no go.

I can browse to Gmail and Facebook so I know 3g and WiFi are both working.

Since it's a problem with the market, I would try reflashing gapps next.

First, go into manage applications and clear market cache, then clear market data.

Then, reboot into recovery, wipe cache, and under advanced wipe dalvik cache.

Then, reflash gapps zip file.

Reboot, sign in, and try installing an app.

When I reboot into recovery it reads "- wipe cache partition" is that 'wipe cache'?
UPDATE: Went for it 'wiped cache partition'
FYI - I found the wipe dalvik cache okay under advanced as noted.

UPDATE: Followed all steps and still same problem. I used the link at top of post and downloaded the GAPPS for CyanogenMod 7. Maybe that's not the right GAPPS?

What exactly is the text of the error message?

How many apps do you currently have installed?

Do you use any *2sd scripts, link2sd, apps2sd, etc?

Its a clean install, so other than GAPPS I have been unable to install any other apps yet. I wanted to try and use apps2sd or similar but same error when trying to install.

For example I'm trying to add the Gmail app. So I go to Market, go to the Gmail app and click Install, then Accept & Download. I see the ...starting download message and then a pop up warning exactly as follows:

Error

"Gmail" could not be
downloaded due to an error.
[OK]

When I click OK the pop up goes away and I'm back to Market, Gmail, with the Install button.

You might recall from my first post that I kicked off the flash of the new ROM using ROM Manager (which I'm aware you don't support) so I'm wondering if that has something to do with it even though the flash seems to have removed the ROM Manager APP.

Hi All,
I'm having a couple of problems. I am on the 12072011 build. I am trying to install Google Music. The error message I get while installing via the Market says "already installed".
I have tried JerryScript's post regarding renaming music.apk. I also cleared the music cache and data as well as system and dalvik cache. Is there something I am missing?
Second issue: I have a 8Gb card installed and most of my apps are installed there using CM7. I have 5.7Gb available on the SD card and 86.84Mb available internally. I tried to update some apps via the Market and was told that there was not enough room.
Update: I found a solution for the second issue in another thread. My main issue is trying to get Google Music installed.

could you point me to the solution for your second issue? I have been having the same problem. I've tried deleting the market cache/data, deleting the 01mdalvik file, wipe cache/dalvik, as well as the Titanium Backup Dalvik integration. The Titanium Backup solution worked a while back, but has since quit working (for me).

Thanks!

From Michael323:

I was getting the 'insufficient space' error from the market consistently when downloading apps greater than 2-3 MB or so.

I found a thread on forum.cyanogenmod.com - post #6 by capeli provides the following terminal command:

# cd /cache
# mv download download.old
# mkdir -p /sdcard/cache/download
# ln -s /sdcard/cache/download download

The thread is for an HTC phone but so far it has cleared up the problem for me. It sets up a symbolic link that uses the sd card for caching downloads. Seems pretty simple and brilliant to me. All credit goes to capeli.

I think that was on the Wildfire S forum. I thought it looked promising, good to hear that it works for you.

seems to have worked! the only thing to add to the instructions is you must start with a SU to get permission to move the folders, etc:

# su
# cd /cache
# mv download download.old
# mkdir -p /sdcard/cache/download
# ln -s /sdcard/cache/download download

Those are the commands that I used. The article didn't say to use SU but I figured that anything like that would need the SU command.

That is a good rule of thumb.

Default Can't get gmail to link account

I'm a noobie, so here goes...

I used gingerbreak v1.20 to root and all is fine. I follwed instructions to the T and flashed the ROM BACKside-IHO-VM670-01102012.zip and then GreenMachineTheme-01102012.zip. Phone boots up great and all seems fine until I try to set up the account for market. Then the problem starts, it says it can't link with gmail. I finally changed to CM7.2RC0-VM670-BobZhome-010112.zip along with gapps-gb-20110613-BobZhome-v2.zip and it works fine. I do prefer the interface of the first two, so how do I make it work? Also, when changing gapps, how is that done? I've been reading a lot of posts and am getting into info overload, so now I am asking.

Thanks,
Gerald

From what you said on your post, it looks like you didn't flash gapps when you installed backside. Flash Backside, then gapps, then boot into your ROM, go back to recovery, then flash the Green Machine theme. Always boot into the ROM at least once before trying to flash a theme, this will the ROM a chance to settle and boot before making changes to it.

You need to flash gapps. It's not different from one Rom to the other just whatever is up to date.

Is there a trick to charging the phone when it's powered off ? I think I am missing something. I've tried booting into recovery but the screen stays on and I have no indication that the phone is actually charging. I have the latest build of IHO inastalled and running smoothly. What did I miss ??

Yes that was my problem. I had went to the link for the gapps, but the Optimus V wasn't listed so I didn't download any. This time I selected the top one, gapps-gb-20110828-signed.zip, as I remembered reading before something about it being all compatable. By the way, what is GreenMachineTheme-01102012.zip?

Thanks all,
Gerald

When you turn the phone off with it charging, does it go to a screen that shows a battery? That's what mine does after the last update. It is supposed to be charging there.

Its just a theme, like other themes, that can give your phone a different look. When in recovery, go to 'install zip from sd card' and install it if you want to try it. I think it has pretty cool colors.

If you are running the 01102012 build, then you just turn off your phone and plug it in. Or you can plug it in and then turn off your phone. Either way, it should boot into charging mode, where you will see a greyish background with a large battery icon that has a charging animation.

To power up your phone while it is charging this way, long press your power button.

Thanks for the response mazz ... uh uh ! It reboots the phone. Not sure why but it does. Just checked the build on my phone and it is 20120109.15418

I've been running these builds since August and they are the best thing I ever did to my V. I wonder if I have a bad flash. I hate to mess with it since everything else is working so well. If ya got any other ideas let me know. It's certainly not a deal breaker for me .. that's for sure.

I had a bad flash with 0102. It happens every now and then. I downloaded a fresh copy, reflashed, and all was good.

From what I understand the reboot while charging issue has been a bug since the beginning. I see you are running 109. The reboot/charging thing was fixed in 110 (the very latest).

I noticed something, when you reboot while plugged in it will just go into charging mode. If you try to power on while plugged in it will just go back to the power screen. If it's already on it stays on no problem.

Yeah when I reboot I have to long press the power button to get out of the charging screen. Jerry posted he didn't think the reboot thing was intentional and was looking into it.

4. Download and copy the recovery image VM670NH_recovery.img (works with new & old OV screens) onto your /sdcard.
5. Install the Flash Image GUI app (save the .apk to a /sdcard directory, then open it with file manager). Run the app & select 'Recovery Image' option with the file above.

I followed instructions posted by Whyzor on August 2nd, 2011 at [HOW-TO] Simplified Root + Recovery + Custom ROM and the instructions on the first page of this thread.

Now a few questions:
What apps should I install to make this rooting useful?
How do I remove some of the bloatware that I don't use or want?
How do I move everything else to the SD card?
If you could point me to the right threads...

Thanks,
Gerald

This thread is about BACKside-IHO, not about rooting and recovery, those are steps you should be comfortable with before flashing a new ROM. Once you have installed BACKside-IHO, we will be happy to help you with any issues you may have in this thread.

For now, please start a new thread, or post your questions in a thread related to your questions.

Just rooted my friends new V, I was suprised that he managed to get the older, better models, instead of the newer one. 3 phone I've managed rom root successfully, and installed a fresh copy of BACKside to it, so now I can have him test out battery life, as well as any bugs, as well as myself, and report back with issues that either of us come across and can't resolve on purty own. Hopefully I can find a newer v to see if issues vary among the older models and newer ones.

Does anybody have any thoughts on my previously mentioned issue with the new Google Music not being able to install? [ROM][WIP] BACKside ROM (CM7) + Green Machine Theme I have renamed the music.apk to music,apk.bak. I have also cleared out cache and dalvik cache.

I've always restored my backup, only Google item I do, because this was an issue before but I've never had it. A little bit back on the thread they discuss it but I don't know if they figured it out

There was a post here in this thread somewhere by Jerry that had instructions on how to get it to install, but I couldn't get that to work for me. I ended up having to do a completely clean install (clean install meaning the second set of flash instructions Jerry gives when coming from another rom). Once I did that, Google Music installed without issue. I hated wiping everything but it got the app installed, so was worth it for me.

For me when I uninstall the stock music app with Titanium Backup I get an apk not found error. I then restore my google music beta, it will go on restoring for ever, but after about 10 minutes I can use music and it is fine. Once I restore after the restore the app shortcut is fixed.

Default 01102012 Build - VM Startup Logo Back?

Did I have a bad flash, or does the latest BACKside build install the original Optimus V startup graphics? When I power up the phone I see first the IHO splash, then what looks like the stock OV "Hello" graphic and animation, and then the Virgin Mobile logo until the lock screen comes up.

Is that the default for BACKside-IHO-VM670-01102012 ? I wiped the cache and Dalvik cache before updating from 12212011. I have no other themes installed. Boot animations are turned off in Cyanomod performance settings, but this doesn't seem to affect what I describe above.

Yes, the VM first bootanimation is back, for now. It's part of the excellent work tdm (aka Tom Marshall) did getting the charging-while-powered-off bug fixed. We had to grab two binaries from initrd and all the battery charging and first bootanimation graphics, modify the init.thunderc.rc to use them appropriately, and then have you guys all test it out for bugs.

Now that it has been out for the better part of a week, with no bug reports, I'll be creating my own first bootanimation to replace the stock VM one.

Note- wait till you see what I have cooking for April Fools Day!

I want to apologize for my post #2636, I was confused and didn't realize all the posts related to your discussion. Please accept my apology, I didn't intend to be rude. I myself am one of the biggest offenders when it comes to posting something outside the thread's subject matter. I was wrong to chastise you for helping each other out!

Google Music is now installed. I grabbed the .apk from xda developers, moved it to /system/apps, renamed it to music.apk and then started it from my main apps screen. Thank you to everybody for all the suggestions.

No big deal [or little deal]. The patience that you show with others is something we all need to strive for.
