    3. Press the Load file button
    4. Select a script from the list (each is obviously named as to its function)

    6. Now select "Save" and you have added your script
    7. To run just select it from the list in the main GScript screen

    To Set Up A2sd

    Please refer to this excellent post by savoxis for help partitioning your sd card HERE

    If your card is already set up for a2sd simply wipe your ext partion and install Raptor.


    To Install
    MAKE A NANDROID BACKUP!!!
    Download Raptor_v0.1.zip and place on your sdcard
    Reboot into recovery
    Wipe data/factory reset, Wipe Dalvik-cache, and (Wipe SD:ext partition if u had a2sd previously)
    Install Raptor_v0.1.zip
    Reboot and enjoy!!
    *first boot may take a bit to load with a2sd also please dont be alarmed if you just see a black screen with "android" on boot give it a few and you will see the boot animation.

    In clockwork recovery I'm assuming it's mounts & storage > format SD: ext? Hope so cuz I chose that lol.

    Waiting for it to load up now. Cool boot screen!

    I must say all throughtout testing this rom it was stable and fast. I feel no need to flash the Turbo4 included in this thread because rom was hella fast. Overall i think its damn good and worth giving a shot. x)

    Thank you and thank you for all the hard work you do for the community and your all the graphic work you do, but raptor would not look as good as it does without you. thanks.

    Downloading Raptor 0.1 and TURBO 4 as we speak. =)

    I'm assuming I can flash this over Velocity 0.3?

    Raptor has finally made my phone what LG should have delivered all along. I'm really grateful for being part of the crew that got to test it. Great job, Killertonez!

    All I can say is... SWEET !!

    There seemed to be a market issue where nothing was downloading but it seemed to be a problem with google's servers and stuff and not Raptor. All seems to be working well with the market again.

    Just wanted to post this in case anyone was having issues.

    WOW!! This looks wonderful!!!

    It sounds great I cant wait to try it out.

    So What I am left wondering, Which is faster Velocity with TURBO 4 or the New Raptor with TURBO 4.

    Will there be a way to OC this ROM?

    What besides the Dock is the real Difference between this Clash of the Titans?

    Props to Both of yall.

    Tubor4 = JIT + OC

    See the changelog at the top and compare them.

    I personally find Raptor fast without JIT or overclocking. So i decided not to flash Turbo4.
