you arent doing something right. Your post sounds like you are but obviously you aren't. The spec is super easy to flash roms on so I don't know how you are messing it up. but just to make sure, this is how you do it.

1. download AIO and broken out

2. Extract contents of AIO onto desktop or some folder of your choosing

3. run AIO and run option 3 and sit back and let it do it's thing.

4. place the broken out zip onto your sd card

5. boot into CWM using rom toolbox or some other app that allows for such (do not use the button combo unless you have the bootloop fix)

6. run wipe data/factory reset

7. install zip from sd card/choose zip from sd card/find broken out and run it.

this is all there is to it. I just typed that from memory. if you are doing all this correctly and not getting any errors along the way then it will work. If it's not working you are missing something.

it's enabled by default. Unless you've gone into settings and turned it off then you are good.

Yea, but the Revo isn't getting ICS. I think he's waiting on updates until we get stock ICS released.

Other than themes, what would you all like to see updated? I'm pretty happy with it as-is. For GB, it's as tight as you could expect it to be.

Out of town all weekend, did not bring a laptop either, and not too sure i can do it from my phone, but if someone wants I'll put up an updated Broken Out 3.0 with current apk versions (no other changes), so you don't have to update after a flash, not much else I can do.

I agree, would be neat to have a couple of themes available.

Maybe some alternate startup animations.

Did I mention themes?

A different unlock screen

A different notification pull down menu

Someone mentioned the boot animation can be changed with RTB, like other phones. I haven't tried it, but it's worth looking in to.

I like the pull down. The lock screen does bug me . I'm open to notification bar changes, I wouldn't mind seeing dialer themeing also.

Use Absolute System Root Tools to change your boot animations. Follow the instrtuctions and you will be good to go.....already changed animations on my several times.

I've gone back to using stock the past few days. Not one reboot at all. I do miss BO,, so much better battery life and less lag, just could not deal with the rebooting any longer, nor figure out out, not even a fresh install helped me, would just get worse the more I used it. Sucks, but nothing to be done.

be cautious and make a back up, (should go without saying), i was playing for a bit with it, had a few work, then got stuck in a bootloop. restored my backup and then had to use the cwm loop fix. Just wanted to caution folks is all.

... and that's what I heard could happen, so I've never tried. I forgot who, but someone mentioned RTB doesn't update the img correctly, so it can loop. The better method is to get the png files and paste them into the correct folder of the rom. Haven't tried that either.

Some of the animations work, and the fonts seem to work as well. I've tried four or five different fonts with awesome results. I've tried changing some of the icons in the status bar as well, i didn't see any negative effects, but the icons don't work. I used rtb quite a bit with my last phone, and i miss the flexibility, so I've been trying a little here and there with the spectrum just to feel it out

Had to do the same thing. This is the fourth time I've tried BO and had to go back to stock. I found that freezing the mlt.LG app has helped a lot in battery life. Phone still bits down at times when many twos going on at once

I did that today, I found that HiLauncher is pretty sleek vs. stock LG Launcher. The stock launcher is just too plain for me.

thats what ive been saying the whole time at the other thread - Random Reboot causes
But people kept getting mad at me that its not that its not this.

I went to B.O. rom last week and i just couldn't take the random reboot. I probably had for about 2 days before i went back to stock. I probably had a total of 10 reboots when i was on B.O. Right now im on stock root with the unnecessary apps frozen and i have had no issues what so ever like no reboots and the battery life is better. When i was in B.O my phone was hella over heating. then when i went back to stock the heating stopped.

I bet all of you guys that its the kernel thats making the reboot and overheating problems

I don't know much about kernels, but I do know that my phone does not have reboots or overheating unless I use the camera a lot. Instagram and other camera apps will cause my phone to overheat and then reboot. This, however, is a problem I had with the HTC Incredible and Motorolla Droid X as well, the Droid X was not rooted at all.

It's not the kernel because many of us had random reboots on stock. I would venture to say it's the lg crap added to aosp to make the stoclk

I have a question. Since I've only had 2 smartphones, first being a droid charge, and then my spectrum, both of which have random reboots time to time...is there a such thing as a smartphone that never gets reboots?

BTW my charge rebooted way more than my spectrum ever has.

I never had the issue on my razr maxx. I ran it stock for less than a week of the entire time i had it, mostly stuck with eclipse, but it was solid, never an issue with heat or reboots.

Between my wife and I, we've had a Samsung moment, HTC Evo 4g and an HTC Evo 4g shift, on stock, rooted stock, and and rooted with a Rom I only remember one random reboot. It was on my Evo when I first rooted it and was trying out 2 or 3 Roms a day for over a week.

I've had a droid, droid x and droid 2. NONE of them had random reboots on stock. The d2 did on cm7, but it was a port, so that's likely the cause.

So yesterday VZW sent me a certified like new Spectrum since I've had numerous Thunderbolt replacements. Basically I worked as a sales rep for VZW some years back and knew all the right buttons to push to get out of the bolt and into something different without using an upgrade. Saving that for the next Nexus phone. The bolt was a nightmare being the 1st 4G phone, most of the initial bugs were fixed via VZW (painfully slowly as usual) the rest through a vibrant developer community. However battery life, like on most HTC phones was atrocious and I had the embarrassing humped extended battery that the chicks sooo dig. Plus it could never hold 4G, the 3G/4G switch was painful if it happened at all, more often than not it put you in 1X. So consequently I just locked it in 3G all the time. Anyways got the Spectrum, rooted it within an hour of FEDEX delivery and was sad to find there are only 2 ROMS for it

From reading through the 2 massive threads on each ROM I'm guessing everything is on hold till ICS drops. So I wanted to chime in here and thank these 2 developers for their work. Hoping maybe an AOSP flavored ROM similar to Cyanogenmod is in the works. HTC sense was pretty and at times buggy but tolerable, but this LG whatever the heck it's called skin is just atrocious. WTF were they thinking? Anyways just dropping my 2 cents worth thanks for the great work guys! Lastly if anyone has any VZW type questions feel free to PM me. I worked there for a year when I got layed off from my regular job during the brunt of the recession and I know the ins and outs of what reps and stores can and can't do for you if you need your phone replaced etc.

We will have more roms in the not too distant future. We have brought 4 more devs on board through the donations of this community. I hope each dev releases their own rom as well. If that happens then we should have 6 ICS roms by fall. And there is also a rumor of the devs working on a JB rom once we have the ICS source. Shoot! I'd take one JB rom over 6 ICS roms any day.
