Hey, I tried the kitchen but I had some issues with it. It threw an error towards the end, can't remember what it said though.

I'm not so sure I even did it right, I didn't find the instructions very clear. Do you have a link to a thread that has detailed instructions as to what option does what?

The Porting option from the advanced menu is all you need. Every step in there is explained in as user-friendly a manner as possible. What part is not clear? There is also a long FAQ in the thread.

I think it was the placement of the ROM location that was an issue.

Anyways, I just found a news link showing that the Shine Plus is getting Gingerbread early summer. I know, crazy right? Apparently they're skipping over Froyo altogether and going for Gingerbread. But they've been promising an upgrade for a long time now, so I'm not going to hold my breath. Plus LG completely lost two future customers (myself and my wife) forever with their lack of support and response to my inquiries. Anyways, here's the link:

Various upcoming TELUS OS upgrades: Android, BlackBerry, WP7 | MobileSyrup.com

Too bad I already bought my wife an HTC Desire. Gonna give her the phone as a gift for our anniversary in a couple weeks.

That's completely false. Any phone capable of running 2.1 is capable of running 2.2 or even 2.3 better than 2.1.

And the Shine Plus is confirmed to be getting an official 2.3 upgrade.

So I've been running this custom ROM for the past couple months with no issues. Now Telus has put out an update for their software, but my computer is not recognizing the phone to do the update.

I re-installed the "Stock ROM" from the first post hoping that would get it back to normal, but my phone is still not being detected.

My friend has the same phone, un-modded, and I did the update just fine on her phone, so I know that the computer end of things is working.

What do I do?!? Is there any way to get my phone back to 100% factory settings?

What do you mean the computer is not recognizing the phone? Can you be specific as to what you did and what you saw?

The problem may be that your boot.img was still modified with the custom updates.

Click on the last link on the first post (the .7z file). Then copy that file's boot.img to your sdcard and flash it using the flash_image tool (flash_image boot /sdcard/boot.img). You should be able to do the over-the-air update as long as you have the stock system and stock boot.img.

If that doesn't work then the other thing to do is to get your friend to root her phone (no need to flash anything first), and then dump the system.img and boot.img, so that you can make a flashable update.zip with it. There is info on the forum to dump them, but I could get the exact command for you when I get home.

I don't have the Shine Plus anymore so I can't do any hands-on testing.

Ok, I finally got it to update.

Basically, I had to put back the stock recovery image (recovery.zip in the first post on the thread) and then do the recovery process.

WARNING!

This removed all my settings so make sure you back up anything important first.

Unsuccessful attempts: restoring the factory boot.img, restoring the stock LG Shine Plus image from first post using alohag recovery. The only thing that worked was restoring LG's recovery image (flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img) and then the voldown-home-power boot. Also, that restored it without any prompting, so make sure you do what you need to first...

So now I suppose you have to choose between the system update, or the customized ROM, at least until someone combines the two... Also, for the record, this is NOT the 2.3 Gingerbread update, it's just a software update for 2.1 ... They say Gingerbread should be released this spring or summer. Of course, they've been saying "any time now" for months, so I'm not holding my breathe...

Oh that's good to know. Looks like you had skipped Step E: Restore to Stock Recovery Image.

If you want to give me a dump of the system.img and boot.img I can easily make a custom ROM. Just do a Nandroid dump of your current system (just post the system.img and boot.img. Your private data is in data.img).

Is it safe to assume development on this phone has completely stopped? :/

Pretty much. I tried soliciting help from the Ally forums for app2sd support a while back, never got off the ground...

Default Kernel progress

The instructions for building Eclair itself seem straightforward enough from their README file. Will attempt this later.
Okay, update (sorry for the delay): I loaded my compiled kernel onto the phone using the tools from the dsixda's kitchen to replace the existing kernel in the stock image with my own. It works just fine with my self-built kernel. yay!

Next, I've been trying to build kernel 2.6.35 msm-branch to load this onto the phone using the default configuration supplied by msm7627-perf_defconfig. At the moment it compiles, and using dsixda's kitchen, I am able to flash this onto the phone. However, with the default config, the phone does not boot - it powers on, give the LG splash, powers off and repeats in a loop.

Now I am attempting to use the 2.6.35 msm-branch as my basis for further work as it appears to have most of the drivers I need (wireless, video, etc.) - I will attempt to adapt the alohag4G-revd-perf_defconfig to this kernel and move the LGE specific drivers. Will post progress... maybe this time more promptly even...

Update #2: I have ported most of LG's drivers and remaining code into the 2.6.35 kernel. Currently it does not compile LG's code due to changes in the kernel API's between 2.6.29 and 2.6.35. I've been slowly fixing one file at a time to make them compile. Who knew I'd need to become a kernel dev to upgrade my phone Progress and patches will be posted after I get the sucker compiling.

Cheers

wow! great to see the progress you're making! my wife has one of these and I'd kill to get more app space on it by enabling ext-based a2sd or something like that.

but mostly, just getting a working kernel build would open up possibilities.

I'm very excited!

Nice to see someone still working on this, because LG has apparently abandoned support for this phone. It really pisses me off that LG hasn't done the update to Android 2.3 like they promised. See if I ever buy an LG phone again. HTC is looking mighty good to me right now.

Anyone know if it's possible to force an install of Android 2.3.7 onto the phone? Because I've had it with waiting for LG to get off their asses and do it for us like they promised.

It's here! You can update to 2.3.3

Now I have to find out an easy way to root this thing...

No luck rooting with GingerBreak 1.20 on the new update to 2.3.3

[App] [26.04.2011][v1.2] GingerBreak APK (root for GingerBread) - xda-developers

Anyone else wants to take a crack at it ?

Gingerbreak doesn't work... It stalls after unmounting SD card for me. The solution we might have is use dsxida's kitchen to root the 2.3 ROM (Which I will attempt tonight). What we need though is a nandroid backup of the 2.3.3 image. I'll attempt installing recovery again tonight to see if I can get it going *fingers crossed I don't brick anything*

Good Afternoon!

If you are in successful in extracting 2.3 can you please post it?

My phone is 2.1 but due to an error in the updating process the LG Updater thinks the version is V20A and will not update.

I am hoping that if I can flash the image manually.

Thank you!

Hi,

Just found a rooting technique for our Gingerbread 2.3.3 release, but it's late here... So I don't have time to do a nandroid yet. As soon as I'm able to, I'll post it! If someone has the time to do one, I'd appreciate it... I posted the root technique in the all things root forum.

Thanks!

Just did the stock 2.1 no root recovery. Rebooted from recovery mode. All apps gone, all contacts gone, wall paper gone yet somehow I'm still on 2.3.3 V20a

*Actually I did recovery mode TWICE and its still on 2.3.3 V20a despite going through the initial setup process Home screen/date & time ect

**In connect bot I type - su ...... flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img and get an message saying flash_image: not found where on my computer under Drive L: (Which is my phone) boot, system and META-INF are all Listed under L along with Flash Image at 10Kb.

***Just tried the other method
To install flash_image, type each of these lines followed by Enter (in your terminal app):
mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock1 /system
cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image
chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image
$mount -o remount,ro -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock1 /system

Got as far as the chmod command line where it again came back as flash_image not found but flash image is still in the L: SD directory.

Woke up this morning screen was working from my other post. Unplugged from the bedroom and plugged into the living room. Unplugged for maybe 30 seconds and my screen problem reappeared again. Battery pull and repeat same steps as above. Everything is wiped again but I am still on 2.3.3. This is the 4th time I tried that file. Is there anyone that can confirm if "Stock ROM for Android 2.1-update1" is in fact 2.1 and not and the 2.3.3 file isn't isnt accidentely attached to that link or something?

I can confirm that image is 2.1... Is your notification bar white? If it is, you're on 2.1. If it's black, you're on 2.3.3.

Keep in mind that going back and forth between 2.1 and 2.3 seems to be causing issues for some. It's still under investigation. Does your SIM card (Voice call) work on both versions?

As for the recovery process, you really have to copy flash_image to /system/bin with the procedure you have written there. Make sure you do su beforehand. This is the proper method:

1. su
2. mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock1 /system
3. cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image
4. chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image
5. mount -o remount,ro -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock1 /system

1. (A # should appear when you do su. Your phone might ask to give su root privileges)
2. This gives read/write access to your system partition
3. This copies flash_image from the SD card to the system partition
4. This sets the proper permissions to execute flash_image
5. This restores your system partition to read only (The way it should be)

OK thats where I went wrong. I did not put flash_image in /system/bin. It was just in L: or the root. Copied it over to /system/bin folder so now there is one in L: and one in system/bin.

$ su
# mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock1 /system
# cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image
/sdcard/flash_image: No such file or directory

~removed the underscore so its flashimage~

#cat /sdcard/flashimage > /system/bin/flashimage
/sdcard/flashimage: No such file or directory

~Put the underscore back in the name~

From the message I see here, flash_image is not in the root of your sdcard folder... Because everything else seems to work. Try deleting the file, redownloading it, extract the zip file to the root of your SD card and try again. The file name should be flash_image no extensions... Tested the procedure and it works fine for me. Flashed the latest 2.2.1 image.

Oh my... Just realized. Did you mount your sd card? If so, unmount it! That's your issue! Your phone needs to be plugged in, but your SD card needs to just idle. If it's mounted to your desktop, it becomes inaccessible in your terminal app.

OK I extracted to desktop and it put the file in a folder on the desktop and I copied the file to L:. Will try to extract directly to L: but if it puts it in a folder I'm putting the file in L: and removing the folder. If that doesn't work I'll try it in the folder. <-- This after double checking that its UNMOUNTED.

*OK following your instructions so far this has now extracted a flash_image file created 3/16/2010 11:24 AM into L: with no folder. Awesome. The screenshot I posted before just shows the date/time I coped it in from when I extracted it to the desktop before. *To me* this date difference seems like a GOOD thing as in I got the actual file in there now.

**Reading the command lines above again, flash_image has been moved to system/bin

***Of f--king course not
Phone state - USB Connected select to copy files to/from your computer -> No -> My computer L: is asking for a removeable disk.

Connectbot -> local ->1

This is getting stupid now.

And the NON SURPRISING result......2.3.3 V20a.......F--K.

I'd wager that this is because radio.img got flashed to V20 when you updated to 2.3.3, but didn't get flashed back to V10 when you downgraded to 2.1.

Karendar and I are trying to solve this issue. If we can extract these images from the phone, we can do full downgrades and upgrades at will. No idea what it'll take to solve though.

Cheers

You forgot one important step. After you got flash_image in system/bin with the proper permissions, you need to flash the image to your recovery partition to get it inside your recovery... The Vol down + Home + Power key combo resets phone to factory default if the recovery isn't flashed.

I suggest going in the Recovery for 2.3.3 (Which is 2.2.1) from this link:

Amon-RA (Download Shine Plus 2.2.1 zip)

Copy it to your sdcard (With extention .img)

Type flash_image recovery /sdcard/recoveryname.img
(Recoveryname.img is the name of the file you saved on your sd card)

And then reboot and try the recovery again... To navigate in the recovery, open the slider and hold the phone vertically, use Up and down arrows to navigate, Enter (Not OK) to select and Vol down to go back.

ok, so here's a big issue I've encountered.

firstly thanks for all work and experimenting going on, and I know I'm one of the experimenters but as usual it's LG's fault, not mine, since their own firmware is crap.

ok, so I'm a VERY experienced rom flasher and android user (and developer, just not an actual firmware hacker). So I know I did everything correctly... I hope LoL.

did factory update to 2.3.3, worked pretty well for a coupel weeks but last couple of days phone was locking up when not used for a while. I said, screw this, can't go back to 2.1 officially, the recovery stuff appears to be DONE and stable, so I did the recovery thing. works great, I think.

backed up the 2.3 firmware since it was my current one at the time. fine. flashed the default (non-deodexed) 2.1 custom rom as (a) it appears to be the only real option aside from the non-rooted non-custom 2.1 update1 rom (which I will try next). flashed it, fine! backed it up before even booting up first time, fine!

I was uber excited now thinking - finally I can get back to 2.1, just accept that it's wifi is borked (it is in 2.3 also so meh), and use some other form of apps2sd to solve space issues.

but - I can't get any data connection. telus sp is configured by default in this 2.1 rom, but nothing. and wifi doesnt' work (but it never did in 2.1 on this phone at my house).

so I'm not sure what to do here. now the phone is COMPLETELY broken. no data and no phone connection. this is WAY worse than a phone that locks up over night.

so what is the solution? I can't be the only person in this situation...

thanks in advance for any help. I'm prepared to do what I can but I'm NOT hacker, just a very experienced rom-flashing end user and actual android app developer (but again, not rom dev in any way shape or form).

Cheers
Don

Hi,

I'll admit the phone locks up from time to time even with the custom ROM sadly... Wifi drivers aren't up to par. I'm annoying LG to fix it ASAP...

The custom ROM is deodexed and I added a few tweaks. I'm gonna release an Alpha 1.3 version eventually, added a few memory tweaks + themed framework + SystemUI (Brought back the white notif bar + modded icons, circular battery 1% mod) and if I have time, I'll inject the CRT off animation in services.jar (Which they removed COMPLETELY from the ROM! WHY LG, WHY???)

I haven't had the time to experiment with wifi drivers... I think flashing the 2.1 kernel + 2.1 wifi libs might work on 2.3.3... I wanted to create a package for 2.1 and 2.3.3 but haven't had time to get around to it.

The reason 2.1 fails on the phone is because the baseband is upgraded with the 2.3.3 ROM to support new GSM functions. And reverting to 2.1 baseband bricks the phone (Tested by seanre453)... So upgrading to 2.3.3 is a one way road sadly.

Look at Jiilik's custom ROM. He picked up where I left off and created a kernel with overclocking and AVS (Adaptive voltage scaling). We managed to OC the phone to 800 mhz stable. REALLY helps on performance!

I also got the CRT off animation coded into our phone, made a theme (For Gingerbread only) and I just bought a second Shine Plus to see what I can do more on this.
