    But how do you know to check voice mail? Anyway I figured it out. I restored the stock zv5 and found it has vtt sprint and sprint vm. Seems I needed both for notifications to work. Thanks again.

    Does anyone have the 1.0.0 version of the rom? I had it on my SD card but accidentally deleted it. I think I will flash initial release because my MMS queued with that version. Thanks!

    Wipe data then try sending an MMS to yourself on 3g/4g wait at least 2-3 minutes.

    the instructions are at the beginning of the thread. Pay attention to the prerequisites. Are you familiar with cwm recovery?

    I know the instructions are at the beginning... Its that I have never flashed a ROM. I only am familiar with rooting. I never messed around with cwm.

    Thats a pretty broad Video to Post for this/any Phone lol.


    Techlord lets get specific

    First follow everything in this thread. you said you are already rooted so obviously skip the root part lol.

    Then when you have PG CWM installed come back the This ROM's thread and follow the instructions in the second post on how to install. easy peasy?

    It did. I'm going to do more research on flashing Roms before committing 100 percent.

    I go to the download link and it doesn't let me download. I click on the "authorize download" and nothing happens.

    VZ5 it's the most recent stock software update. Go to Settings/about phone/software information and verify you have the VZ5. If you have the VZ4 go update before you flash simplicity, otherwise it won't work properly and you'll have to go back to stock to update :mad: and that's not fun...

    It worked! Thanks Chev! Everything seems to go gone well except for 2 things. Every time I restart the phone it says "secure booting error cause device unlock so boot success!" Is this normal? I'm a noob to flashing Roms so I just want to make sure. And also how come I don't have the "CRT effect" when I shut off the screen?
