    hey fellas

    !!!!!!WISH ME LUCK!!!!!

    LG Optimus Dynamic (LG L38c)
    Android Gingerbread 2.3.6
    rooted, stock rom

    Okay so I've been doing a lot of research lately for the past month or so on rooting My device. so I used One Click Root, CWM
    and Unlock Kernel from area51 to root my phone. everything went great and had no problems.

    then I used the cwm to make a backup. that went well.

    then I used titanium backup to backup all my apps and system files. that went well.

    now I found custom rom made by the developers at area51. the only custom.mod for my device that's out there.
    I've read all the posts associated with the mod and it seems pretty stable.
    so I downloaded the mod. zip file to my computer and used USB to transfer to my sdcard.

    so now all I need to do is boot into cwm and restore useing the new mod zip file and do a few.other things like clear cache etc... included in the mod instructions.

    if all goes well and my phone boots properly I'm going to use titanium backup again to restore all my apps/ system files to my phone


    I've done my homework and am pretty confident all is well. just wanted a few opinions.

    thx guys. keep watchin. more post to come.

    make sure that you wipe dalvik cache, cache, data and system before flashing the rom. make sure that you select install from .zip and not restore.....if you like can you provide a link so that i can take a look see to the rom you are about to flash?

    hey thx for ur input

    well I didn't wipe all the caches before I installed the rom I did it after like the mod instructions said
    and I.unzipped the mod.file on my.computer and copied the folder to.sdcard and.restore it. that's what the instructions said.

    everything went well! !!! thank god lol

    the only problem I'm having is restoreing my apps and.system data with titanium backup. the problem with this phone is low system memory. so when I.use titanium backup I can only install a.few.apps b4 I get a low on space alert from system. then I have to go and use link2sd to move the em then.go back.into. titanium backup and restore a few.more etc etc.... but now.here's my issue link2sd keeps moving em to my internal storage not.to my external sdcard. I've also tried app2sd and app mgr II. but.they don't even see/let me move them to external SD just internal.

    in link2sd setting I choose external but it keeps putting em in internal. what wrong?

    also is.there. way.to move the entire app not.just part of it? to my external sdcard?


    here the mod I used
    [ROM]Arearom Dynamic 1.0 - Android Area51

    hey fellaz

    lg optimus dynamic. L38c
    rooted.with oneclick root and cwm and kernal

    just installed.custom rom
    [ROM]Arearom Dynamic 1.0 - Android Area51

    when i used cwm to install rom everything went fine. in the rom instructions it says to factory reset,wipe cache and dalvik cache after restoring rom. when i wipe cache it says:
    e: unknown volume for path (/sd-ext)

    then i wipe dalvik cache and that's fine

    on my phone it loads all my pics and i can see the.contents of.my sdcard with file manager etc...

    but when i use app2sd, link2sd, or titanium backup they see.my sdcard but when i use them.to move my apps to sd they only move them to my internal storage not my sdcard.

    Try some of the apps from Google play store if it works for you but it depends on what you got, some roms and some phones they don't let that happen.

    hey fellaz

    everything went fine. I'm so glad.

    the rom is nice and 80% of the bloatware is gone.

    the only problem I'm having is restoring my apps with titanium backup. its a pain in the a** that h have to confirm each app and the hit install for everyone.
    since this phone has very little storage i have to restore a few then stop and move them to sdcard then restore a few more etc etc...
    but im having. hard time moving apps to my sdcard they keep getting moved to internal storage. been workin on this problem for hours now!!!
    so my plan is to format my intternal storage since it full of crap from the past 2months of install/uninstalling apps etc... and just move all my apps there since its pretty large.

    if anyone has this phone would like to root using the method i used and would like some input pm me.

    more news soon

    hey fellaz

    yeah the rom will not let u send or receive mms messages. I don't mind caz i dont use mms really at all.

    otherwise this rom is pretty good. I dont any complaints. its the only one available so... also I chatted with the Creator of the custom mod caz I thought that not being able to move Apps to SD with link2sd was with the rom but come to find out its the phone. these phone have a problem in there script. he said he was trying to fix it. also after u install this rom when u wipe cache or dalvik cache not sure which one it will say unknown path /ext-sd volume not found. don't worry everything will work Fine except useing LINK2SD WITH A PARTITIONED SDCard. don't do it. caused me.a.huge headache. lol

    just ordered a archos g9 10in tablet should have it tomorrow. the reviews wernt to bad and there is a ton of custom roms too. so well see. keep u updated
