I'm curious if anyone else that is having problems with reboots is also finding the the top information bar is missing when it reboots. The pull down box is there but the power icon, 4g/3g icon, wifi icon, signal strength, time are all gone. It also only reboots to the experia boot logo, when I reboot to the LG screen I will get the information bar back. Anyway, just curious if that was happening to anyone else. Thanks!

Yes, that's what happens when it 'soft' reboots... It's the 'status bar' app and it doesn't automatically reload with the rom. I find sometimes it reloads after a bit, but others, it does not.

From what I can tell, apps throwing errors (and forcing the reboot) will prevent it from reloading, but reboot from system clog/crash or overheating will reload it.

If that happens, just reboot again and it'll load. Annoying, for sure. Fwiw, I don't have that problem on the BP rom.

I don't get it either. My phone never reboots, but my girlfriends phone is having the soft reboot. I have wiped and reloaded, it was working good for about a week and started rebooting.
It's pretty frustrating that my phone works great and her's has all types of problems. We have just a few apps that are different, so it could be that.

Thanks for the help!

While I may have had more reboots than most, I've never had the notification bar issue afterwards.

Possibly tonight, I will start messing around with some of our new Roms and see if I can fix some of the problems I have created for myself.

Mine does the exact same thing but when it does its the carhome app that triggers it from what i have seen. But carhome is not supported for the spectrum but its installed anyway.I have to ask tho the people with the phones that reboot alot who has the extended battery,i talked to a vzw rep said most who was having the reboot issue had extended batterys

I have not had one reboot since installing the extended battery. I did have a "power off" yesterday. Was using my phone, press the screen off button, laid it down, then about 1.5-2 hours later I picked it up and it was turned off (40% battery when I turned the screen off, 37% when it came back on)

No extended battery here. I did get the phone from best buy though. That might be my problem.

freezing the 'carhome' apk definitely curtailed some of the reboots... it seems to self-start and not into 'active' memory too, not just in the cache, which could explain why the phone reboots. Basically, the app loads and the phone says "woah, wtf is this shit? SHUT DOWN!" and it reboots. Well, my logcats aren't as colorful as that, but you get the idea.

Has anyone heard more on the ICS front? I thought after that first leak a while ago we would have something more complete by now.

The leak had bugs, so people opted not to use it as a source.

I remember that. With other phones though, usually after the first leak something more stable follows shortly behind, if not an official release. In our case, we're back in limbo.

I remember when the HTC Incredible 2 was getting GB.
The source would "leak" a build and the devs would hack it, then the source would patch the build, then the devs would re hack it and the source would re patch.

The Spectrum is not as popular as the DInc 2 at this point, even though we have a dedicated group of devs here, the problem is with LG and the little dictatorship that they call a forum.

The Fathom was a learning curve that I have come to accept.
The BOGO deal I got with the Spectrum was too good to pass up.
We just might see ICS before everybody else is getting JB.

I still think that VomitRizen is just so blinded with greed that they want to suppress the update so they can sell more equipment.

Bastards!

Maybe some day we could run puppy linux on our Spectrum...

Only if you will build the pup files, I never figure it out...

I still think we won't see ics until after the spectrum 2 launches

Check my mirror in the archives, the link is around here somewhere, at least 8 or 9 times... but I think I can do it from memory...

Http://Www.joelperryproductions.com/spectrum/Roms/broken-out/archive

If that doesn't work, backup to the spectrum party and navigate back through, the only part that might be wrong is the hyphen...

If it is not there post back a reply here, I have 1.1 & 1.3 on my computer and I can upload them again.

Default Teathering keeps force closing

I keep getting a FC (com.android.settings)when I try to tether. Does anyone have any help? Maybe someone can point me to a thread on this forum? I have been keeping up with this Thread and went back through the last 25 pages and really did not see anything. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I made it to this part and the phone continues to run start animation 5 times or so, and then freezes. Any Ideas?

You might've downloaded the out-dated version of the rooting software; what version number does your CWM say at the bottom of your screen? If it's 5.xxx instead of 6.xxx, you should download Neph's bootloopfix.exe (link is somewhere in the forums) and put it on your SD card, then use CWM's "install from .zip" option to run that file.

Alternatively, you could download the updated AllInOne root package from PlayfulGod and install that, but I don't know if that'd cause any problems as I've never done it. The upside though is that it contains the newest version of CWM.

okay, how can I get the phone out of its current state? Is there a button combo that will take it to recovery mode? As it is now i cant get it out of the starting mode.

First off, I want to greatly thank the dev of this ROM mtmichaelson. I am very impressed by all the work and updates you have done to this ROM. I will be donating to you very soon.
Second I would like to thank this awesome community. This is the first time I rooted my phone and needless to say wasn't too confident. I read through all 1281 posts in this thread. I had flashed BO 3.0 before reading the full thread and I had random reboots all the time which killed my battery life. Thanks to mtmichaelson, hollywoods14, mrb206, finndo77, and IMUcarmen and all of their posts I have been able to fix the random reboots and am running the ROM for the first day without any problems.
This is an awesome community which I hope to be taking part of more often.

@k7even84, it's still pretty hard to determine what has happened to your phone based on the info you're posting here on the board. More specifics would be helpful. You can search the forum (there's a search bar above the thread list) or use Google for nit-picky stuff (like how to do a button-combo reset), but unless you post more info, the people who would be able to help you most won't respond because they'd just be shooting in the dark. If you could post a few more details, someone might be able to help you.

A few things to ask:

I just installed Broken Out 3.0 but when I go to software information, it says 2.0. I double checked the files and it is the 3.0 rom. Also, I've been playing around with the No Frills CPU and was wondering if I should match the min/max speeds? Maybe that affects the crashing? And the kernel version says 2.6.35.11-Blitzkrieg+lge@android-build #1 which seems wrong.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Wow, I just checked the lg lucid forums since you mentioned it and I know someone that has one. Its like a developer/rom-free forum lol that sucks. Hope someone comes along and helps you guys out. I also hope that the guy who had that ICS build on his phone can somehow get it to the rest of you. Good luck!

Ok, well now... that explains a few things.
Your best bet would be to find a phone with as many of the same chip models as possible and then pm a Rom dev for that phone and ask if they would be willing to dev for the lucid if you can get them a phone. Then start a donation thread for the lucid.

It is basically how every dev for the spectrum got here.

Just click the power button and home button and the same time and there you go, this is also possible on any rom or stock

SOLVED: Downloaded ROM Toolbox lite and went into recovery.

I have been using BO3 for about 2 weeks now and am getting random reboots daily now (the one where the xperia shows up). I tried going back to CWM for a recovery but I can't get it to come up anymore. I used to script to push CWM to the phone again without any luck. Held down the volume down key + Pwr button but it just booted normal. I ran the AIO recover option 7 and the phone just gives a blank screen. Any advise as to how I can get back in CWM... Thanks

Plug your phone into the computer, set usb mode to shared internet, ethernet, go to settings, applications, development, and make sure debug is checked.
Then if you have s copy of adb on your computer, open a command prompt and type "adb devices" and hopefully it should show something starting with LG. Then type "adb recovery" and your phone should not into clockwork mod.

If this does not work, I dunno what else to tell you

I sometimes go into terminal to get to cwm.

Open terminal
Type "su"
Enter
Type "reboot recovery"

It will reboot to recovery.


Could also try ROM manager to flash the latest cwm and or use that to get to recovery.

Thanks figured it out now, and the rom is working beautifully again. Doing another battery test. The first one lasted me 35 hours and I was at about 30% when the phone started crashing and brought it down to 3%. Not sure what had happened.

From what I have read on the forums our phone has magnets that detect when a dock is applied to the phone that activates the car home window. The random crashes seems to be java related. Mine happen whenever Playstore checks for updates and/or Youtube is running.

Question Bringing this over from Black Plague thread...

Hi all,
I'm bringing this over from the BP thread since its really not BP related anymore. MrB206, BlueRacer90 and mickeydurden have been great help so far and I'm happy to see them here, as well.

Backstory:
I flashed BP with Plague kernel and experienced serious battery drain. So I flashed Broken Out 3.0 and it is a lot more conservative but could be more so, I think. I have given Location access to very few apps, I manually adjust my screen brightness, Most apps are not constantly refreshing in the background. I'm underclocked using smartassV2 and deadline IO. I'm not streaming videos or music (my a-Pad is for that) but I do browse quite often and have a few games that I play but not often. I use wifi whenever possible, but that seems to have a small issue, too.

Yesterday evening I had to charge up and then let it sit all night unplugged just to see what I got (screenshot 1). A little while later, the battery had dropped again (screenshot 2).

Issues:
Battery life could be better from what I've been reading in the threads. What else can I do?
Screenshot 1:
2012-10-15 06.58.55.jpg
Screenshot 2:
2012-10-15 07.52.05.jpg

Wifi has also been spotty, I can be right in front of my router and still get timeouts. I have the main wifi in my office in the basement and a range extender on the first floor so there is a solid signal throughout the house. I can be right in front of either with my phone and still not get a steady full signal. My tablet gets full or almost full throughout the house. Is there a wifi update that I am missing?

See, screenshot 1 is odd unto itself. With wifi and no use, that should be more flat.

Now, I find running ANY rom on this device at 1.512 to harm it, so I scale my cpu back to 1.296. For BO, I use the gaumaufry (sp?) governor and I had a far flatter line than you. Stay away from on demand... It spikes you cpu to max when ever its 'called', so battery drain is noticeable.

I saw this link being posted somewhere else and thought it might be helpful to you to learn about the different govs and IO's:

Are you using no frills cpu to set all this stuff? I prefer it in BO3 over Rom toolbox even though I have used both in that past.

We could be overlooking the obvious here too; maybe you happened to get a bad battery with your phone. You don't happen to have any spares you could try, do you? Honestly based on everything you've described, you should be getting decent battery life, unless there's some app you have that just kills it for some reason, or if you're streaming lots of videos on your browser. A new battery might do the trick.
