    Hey, Dots, did you notice the battery status icon in the image you posted? Talk about "subliminal messages". :p

    I see the "average age" of some of the members on the chat hasn't changed much since my first encounter with IRC nearly 30 years ago, which was why I never spent much time with it. It is a shame something can't be done to boot those sophomoric punks off the chat permanently. I was really pleased to be able to get the help I did those couple days when I rooted the Ally, but from what I am seeing today I don't know how anyone could carry on an intelligent dialog with all that stuff flying.

    Is there a way to block certain members from appearing on the screen?

    You would have to use an actual irc client to be ableo to use /ignore Most actual clients (not the web ones) support it.

    Thanks Dots! I was wondering about that. I'll see if I can find a good freebie client.

    And why in heck would you ask a completely unrelated question in a thread about Ally help irc channel?

    Try making a little effort on forum use and etiquette, for crying out loud!

    Good call! People need to understand, to receive proper help the fastest, they need to put stuff in the right areas. It's cool though. He's new to this. :D

    hey i have the lg shine plus (its the canadian version of the alley with some upgrades like a 5 mp camera and more storage) i have z4 root installed and rooted, how do i make a nandroid backup and fully root my phone so i can put custom ROMS on it?

    Well, if the Ally info really will apply for your phone, I would suggest you install ROM Manager from the Market, which installs ClockworkMod Recovery, then "flash alternate recovery" (at the bottom of ROM Mgr. window) to using Amon-RA Recovery. Then you can use Amon-RA to create nandroid backups. If you plan to put your apps on the SD card (using A2SD) then Amon-RA is the way to go, because it can access the EXT partition you will need on the SD card for that. ClockworkMod makes nandroids too, but it can't access the EXT partition.

    However, be advised that these things discussed on this Ally forum are specifically meant for the Ally and no other phone. So they may not work correctly for you.

    :)

    wsIrc Ally IRC seems to no longer work
    "Closing Link: server.nowhere-else.org (*** Banned )"

    Something about being banned from freenode for spam I think?

    Yep seems like freenode banned the hostname that particluar web client uses. Removed.

    If the person sending the pictures, or if you, are using SMS or MMS to send/receive them, AND either of you have applied the Velocity 1.1 update without "installing from scratch" it may be the issue being reported on the Velocity 1.1 thread regarding problems with messaging and pictures. If so there are details in the thread on what to do to fix the problem (involves re-installing Velocity 1.1 rather than "upgrading" to it).

    Well first off are you rooted? try dialing *228 option 2 and if no go then *22899

    Zoandroid Well-Known Member

    What does 22899 get us? I haven't seen that one before.

    If you have not "rooted" the Ally and installed the custom ROM Velocity, then my previous suggestion doesn't apply to you. Sorry for any confusion. :)

    Death2all posted it a while back as a way to force the phone onto the network and update that stuff. Ive had other issues that dialing *228 option 1 and 2 didnt fix but *22899 did.

    You did not answer KingofGreen's question. Is your Ally rooted? Which ROM are you using, and what version number?

    And if you are stock, are you using a different sms app? Maybe try to download them in the stock app

    Very helpfull people on it. Only took a few moments to get someone to help me with my phone. When he had to go, very quickly found someone else to pick up where he left off.
    Thank you guys so much!

    Due to circumstances I am unwilling to discuss, I am taking a permanent hiatus from the room. I wish everyone good luck and I enjoyed helping people root

    EDIT: After some reasonable thought, I have decided to go back to the room. I hope to see you guys there
