just a thought but maybe the pre overclock of the gpu and the undervolting are causing these issues for some people.

I've been running at 1296 since last night with no reboots. I had my wife run her stock spectrum through antutu for the hell of it, and the results showed her spectrum as running at 1296 as well. Is it possible that this could be the stock setting even though it's marketed as a 1.5?

I'm guessing you had it plugged in while you ran it. It's definitely set to 1.5ghz by default. But when you plug the phone in it's reduces the cpu clock speed.

That is very curious. I wonder if your onto something. I too had fewer issues when I ran @ 1296.

You should read this forum more. There's many reasons for reboots, from specific apps to overheating. Certain apps aren't working well with the lg stock rom and all the variant roms like BO.

Anyone have problems with GO Launcher EX on this ROM? Go is my favorite launcher but it seems to resize all the widgets randomly a few times a day and I have to force stop the launcher to fix it. Don't think it's the ROM, wondering if it is the odd long narrow screen. Had same thing happen on Eclipse ROM as well.

Are you wiping data, cache and dalvik before you flash?

No, you shouldn't have to. Wiping all 3 should do the trick.

So after you flash and reboot fr cwm, it immediately reboots all the time, before you add/restore any apps? Have you tried skipping the Google account portion of activation? There's a chance when you sign in, it's restoring bad data backed up by Google.

K. Try just flashing it once. I never use the double flash method and don't have the reboots.

That's not a bad idea, mine hangs on the activation screen. Takes about 5 mins to tell me it was already activated. In the past I've had a reboot there. Generally, I just let it sit before I add my accounts. Then I reboot.

I generally don't, but if you're having issues, it's probably not a bad idea. Use some root-cause analysis to try to single out the error and waiting would let you do that.

Mine always reboots in the first 5-10 minutes after flashing, I don't do anything after the flash, just let it sit after it boots up

First, try restoring with data. If you get reboots, wipe user data in settings and then restore just the apps.

I find it's the user data on some of my apps that's causing the problem. Right now, I'm getting some random reboots on GoSMS, so I'm going to wipe the data and see if they continue. Never had this problem on other phones, but it might just be those phones ignored corrupt data.

No telling what is causing the issue, currently I am on BO 3.0 that I installed without any data or app restores and I still have random reboots.

flashed the rom and booted up and it worked for about 5-10min then rebooted, then from within an hour and a half i could restor 10 apps from TB within each reboot and i had about 10 reboots within that time and i never got to restor all the apps but now im just keeping it in sleep mode and using it sparingly and for about another half hour ive been doing that without reboots but im going to switch and tryout playfulgods new rom

EDIT: the rom isnt out right now im going to try just the kernel on top of broken out rom

This ROM is described just as everyone has described it. To keep the review simple and sweet, I won't stress on small details.

Broken Out is definitely a first step above the Stock Rom, there isn't a debate there. From better battery life and ultimate performance via OC, the developers have done a superb job in making their ROM attractable. However with speed and stability, comes with an ironic price. You will experience reboots. Random reboots. When the Spectrum becomes unresponsive, it isn't lag, its a reboot coming on its way. So while it may be better to flash this ROM its undesirable reboots might just be enough to push people away. However for me, I didn't care. I'd have random boots on Stock ROM anyway plus a few other issues like draining battery life. That was insane! I couldn't use it for 5 hours of moderate use. So is Black Out worth it? I would answer a sketchy yes.

Broken Out beats stock ROM side by side, and the reboots, well they're worth it. Btw, the Plague ROM isn't bad at the moment.

Not everybody has reboots, I have been running BO for months and only time it's ever rebooted was in a hot car running GPS and navigation so it was most likely a heat issue not ROM related. That's even running ADW and with full apps and data restores using Titanium Backup. If you were having that big an issue even on stock you probably need a replacement.

I agree... After the Blitzkrieg kernel was introduced, I has fewer reboots. I got some occasionally, but they were app-specific.

You are right, I should have replaced my Spectrum immediately but I decided that working with a potentially defective Spectrum could give me some insight on how to help others with related issues. And you are right again with the fact that reboots don't occur with everyone, and I'm glad that your Spectrum is performing well under those conditions, I can't help but envy your Spectrum. However, how much help would I be if I said that my phone is fine and in tip top shape and another comes for some assistance and all I could say was, "Sorry, I don't know about you but my phone is doing great!" I realize that you could read this the wrong way but believe me this isn't directed towards you. I'm simply creating a hypothetical scenario. But the bottom line is I didn't get a great Spectrum with a great Stock ROM. That's why I got Broken Out in the first place. After using it for what, 2-3 weeks now I think its safe to report what I've been experiencing and my thoughts.

Default GPS and Bluetooth?

First of all, I would like to thank the developer of this ROM and everything he has done for this small community. Once I am able, I plan to donate for continued support and development. This rom is definitely a step above the stock rom.

I have a few questions maybe a few of you can answer...

One of my biggest complaints about this rom is the GPS not establishing a solid lock once it's enabled or the random disconnects of the bluetooth. Now I have read and have been told this is a common bug in gingerbread. I am wondering if anyone has experienced the same issues and perhaps what methods have you tried to correct this?

Further, I am a new to flashing roms and rooting phones. I have only owned two smart phones (Droid X and this LG Spectrum) so I am not entirely familiar with everything. Please allow me to apologize in advance for my lack of understanding. I know what it's like to deal with "oh great, another n00b to deal with."

Lastly, I am also experiencing reboots on the phone however I see there is another thread for that and I am going to attempt to work through some of the suggested methods as well as eliminating applications that may be a cause.

Thanks for the help that anyone may be able to offer.

If you're having issues with gps, you can clear the gprs cache and that may resolve the problem. I haven't had any issues with gps lock on this rom, but I did on my D2 and clearing the cache resolved it.

I assume this is just wiping the cache partition in CWM?

Download an app called "GPS Status & Toolbox": https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.eclipsim.gpsstatus2

Go to Menu, then Tools. Click 'Manage A-GPS state' and then 'reset'. That will clear the GPS cache on the phone and will pull the data again the next time you use GPS.

I'd recommend doing this inside, with the GPS off, so you get a good clear. Sorry, btw... I was calling it 'gprs', when it's actually 'A-GPS' or 'aGPS'.

Give that a go and let us know if you can get GPS. Otherwise, there's a rooted app called 'Fasterfix' that claims to have a better connection rate because it syncs your phone to NTP time. Of course, if you use an app like ClockSync, you don't need Fasterfix, because it'll sync your phone to NTP automatically (I use ClockSync... it's THE best atomic/NTP sync app out there, IMO).

I was having major lock issues with the GPS (Would see but never lock). GPS Status would not resolve it with a reset or A-GPS data download. The only way I could fix it was to wipe normal and dalvik cache. Works in 0-5 seconds now (In and out of house).

ClockSync will not work for me on stock ROM. I just get "Can't get NTP offset, network problem?".

Edit: NVM, servers must have dropped for a min.

ClockSync is a great app and that seemed to fix my GPS issue, except everything was reversed? North became south west became east? Not sure what happened... I was also getting significantly more reboots after the GPS Status and ClockSync install and that was pretty much a breaking point for me.

I wiped the phone and reinstalled BO 3.0 and Blitzkrieg so far so good. Even managed to bench 7310 in AnTuTu which I was never able to do prior. Not sure if these apps were causing the problem but I am no longer running Memory Booster lite or Juicedefender for the time being. I am probably going to flash back to v6 and wait for the ICS OTA to hit.

Still pretty satisfied with the Rom despite the issues.

I might install Plague tonight just to see how that one is. Thanks again to all that offered help.

With Verizon marking the Spectrum as End of Life, I am thinking we will not see ICS until someone ports it in the community. I would try to install the leaked version, but I can't seem to find that anywhere.

GPS Test is a great app for the GPS problem! I kind of wish Google maps would automatically clear Agps and Update Agps...I do it now every time I'm about to use the GPS and it finds my signal Immediately! Wish I had used this app with my original Droid.

Where did you get the info about the Spectrum receiving EOL? It is still currently being sold on Verizon LG Spectrum - Spectrum by LG: 4G Smartphone | Verizon Wireless Also LG has has finished the ICS Rom update and is waiting on Verizon to release it.

Good to hear an update MAY be coming soon, but since we've been hearing this for some time, I am hoping for a community ROM.

As for EOL, Optimus LTE II makes a cameo on Verizon as LG VS930 (Updated) -- Engadget

I remember reading it elsewhere too, but that was the one in my browser history.

Somebody posted a cheesy article that stated it's EOL status. There were other inaccuracies as well, and I have not seen it reported anywhere else, but seems like everybody who read it assumed it was fact. I believe it was an assumption on the writer's part due to the VS930 development.

The only time I have ever had a reboot or freeze is when my phone gets really hot and I am trying to surf the internet. I live in phoenix so right now it is hot out and if i leave my phone in my truck and try to use it if it is hot it acts up. Any other time it works like a champ no matter what I do with it. I have used every ROM made for the spectrum, and am currently using Black Plague. I don't know what settings you guys use to get such good battery life but mine makes it through a day at best, usually is dead at around 6pm. I use it pretty heavily, calls, emails, texts, internet etc. but some of you guys are getting ridiculous times. My phone will lose about 15% throughout the night while I am sleeping. Any tips on what to change?

Try out this Broken Out ROM with the Plague Kernel. I've experienced constant reboots with the Black Plague after trying to do an Antutu Benchmark. Wish I hadn't because now I can't seem to get Black Plague to work smoothly anymore.

As a means of desperation, I flashed Broken Out 3.0 and then flashed the Plague Kernel. Right now its fast without any reboots. I'm glad its fine that way and battery life is always amazing. Perhaps it can do the same for you.

My apologies, I was a bit naive about that, though I did find an article that also states that VZW tends to EOL lower selling phones after about 6 months, and the Spectrum 2 is about to be released. So, I was rather not surprised when I read it was EOL'd.

Good to hear ICS seems to be coming any day now, or week, or month.

I am trying to run Cryptonite to mount EncFS volumes directly, but it seems that this requires kernel FUSE support (or CONFIG_FUSE_FS setting enabled) or fuse.ko file. Would it be possible to add this to Blitzkrieg Kernel?

I am sure others could, give a more current and accurate status; I recall that mt has lost his imei number while trying the ICS leak, and no longer has a working spectrum. Not sure what happened after that.

Actually mt's phone died because he left it in a hot workshop and he said he went to use it and it was off and would never turn back on.

I'm sure he'll be back around I just think life has kept him busy lately.
