Does anyone know if the Ally's ROM is compatible with the new LG Shine Plus from Telus?
Well it looks like the exact same phone in silver! And for non-US countries. I'm sure its the same system but I can't help you more than that.
I would say no simply because the camera's are different and I'm sure that will be an issue, you will have to find a really good phone information app and see if the build is called "aloha" if its not aloha than its not an Ally.
Ok thanks, though could you point me to an information app?
Look for "Android System Info" (no quotes) on the market. Once you open it there's a "System" tab. Tap that and all info about the phone should be there.
It's hard to say, the Shine Plus has some hardware upgrades like 5MP camera and such, the hardware and even software version will probably differ.
On top of that, the Allys ROM is most likely branded for Verizon and will not work on other network?
Im not sure. ive helped people flash phones to other networks, US Cellular, Cricket, Metro, and Telus
Can you flash it to a different carried, yes its possible. But will the Ally ROM's work on it, 99% sure they wont, I'm pretty sure the camera alone will be enough to make it crap out.
Yeah i agree. It looks similar but i guarantee the name of the board wont be aloha
My board is alohag
AlohaG or Aloha?
We are alohaV. AlohaG is in v740 kernel source. Op contact me via pm to test recovery and oc kernel for AlohaG. Telus is cdma right?
Yes telus is a canadian cdma network. and thanks for the clarification on what the boards are drellisdee
Telus is both CDMA EVDO rev.A and HSPA (HSPDA and WCDMA), just no GSM.
Actually Shine Plus is a GSM phone:
LG Shine Plus Specifications | Features List
Sayng it's a GSM phone while it being on a GSM-less carrier (Telus) doesn't really go together lol, the good thing is that it does have GSM bands for traveling. The Telus version of the Desire took out GSM bands unless you root and flash to a different rom (stock RUU or custom) which enables GSM, the stock Telus Desire can't use GSM/EDGE when you're traveling, which sucks.
I'm telling you what the net says, everything else is not on me
LG Shine CAN be rooted!!
Congrats! how did you find all this?
drellisdee had been helping me out, good man!
Another interesting observation:
[KITCHEN][SEPT. 19 '10] HTC Android Kitchen, v0.93 [Linux / Mac / Windows] - xda-developers
Notice the Shine Plus is mentioned.
then it should work. custom roms are probably already in development.
I offered to try to make a recovery but couldnt get together with tester last night. Recovery 1st custom roms 2nd.
I'm up to test anything or help as well. I'm currently trying to learn about the cooking methods and would like to help anyone that wants to try to build a 2.2 ROM as well.
