    The permission for /system/bin/screenshot isn't being set after an install, mostly because of the pre-generated updater-script not accounting for it.

    In /META-INF/com/google/android/updater-script, after this line:
    set_perm(0, 0, 0777, "/system/bin/dtinstall");

    Add the following:
    set_perm(0, 0, 06755, "/system/bin/screenshot");

    I manually changed the permissions after a fresh install R4 and screenshot now works.

    Overclocking works awesomely, looks good so far. Haven't had alot of time to test out if everything works but great job on the OC.

    Adding the new Adreno drivers helped the phone, but OC'ing helps it even more! I'm able to run TSF Shell with very little lag... Which is surprising to me.

    I found out two new things for the ROM:

    1) LG sucks badly when it comes to market compatibility for their devices. I can in no way get the phone to install some apps I KNOW run well on the phone (Do not show up in market, when I do find the link in market, says it's not compatible with my device). To test this, try installing Soundhound or shazam. If it works for you, must be my phone which is messed up. :D

    2) The reason auto brightness doesn't work is because LG brilliantly destroyed the light sensor driver. Lux values returned by the phone is always -1, meaning no data is returned from the sensor... Will have to kang work from another phone to re-enable light array.

    This weekend I'll actually have time to d/l 2.3.3 sources from Google and actually attempt a git-merge of V20B sources. If we can compile the framework from scratch, I will have a better time of porting over CM7 features using actual code.

    I'm a much better programmer than modder haha.

    I'm apparently the polar opposite! Great modder/cook, horrible programmer! hehe

    Im gonna attempt to flash this to my phone after I back up all my apps >.>

    Just so you know, if you have any issues after flashing, you might have to upgrade the phone to v20b manually so it updates the baseband... Keep me posted if everything works out.

    Also, if you wait before downloading it, I'll update so the screenshot app works.

    Just flashed R4 successfully. I'll update if I come across any bugs.

    karendar, you may want to update your main post with new recovery information (now that we have CWM

    I've been running v4 now for a couple days and no issues so far. Just wondering what settings everyone is running for good balance of performance/battery life in setcpu?

    Stupid question but can someone tell me how to update to the new Gingerbread and how to root it? I cant remember >.>

    I am having problem with your rom. At first I had jiilik's version and had the dalvic cash issue so I tried karendar's and would keep reebooting by it self so I went back to jiilik.
    Now I amd still trying karendar but I am still having the dalvic cash just like with jiilik.

    I did wipe averything "all data/factory reset" and also Data, cash sdcard/.android_secure, system, dalvic-cash each separately.
    Probably overkill but better safe then sorry.

    I understand that wiping /system removes it all so I reinstall the rom, do factory reset. I install a few basic apps and reboot often and after a while the dalvic cash problem just come back again.

    I have the latest software v20b

    I have the same problem. What I suggest is using DarkTremors app2sd witch is built into the rom.

    Hey guys,

    I actually think there's an issue with the ROM, but I just got back from vacation, so I can't fix it for now. The issue is the ROM is a little too big and /system gets filled up, thus causing possible issues.

    Here's what I recommend you try:

    - Use WinRAR or 7zip, open the ROM's zip file.
    - Move the following files from the system folder to the data folder (or delete them): Maps.apk, thinkdroid.apk, gmail.apk, youtube.apk
    - Reflash this modified file

    This'll move the files to your data folder, so keep in mind it'll gobble up some space. Considering that the ROM has app2SD, I suggest using that. You need an ext4 or ext3 partition on your SD card to use it of course.

    Hey thanks! Glad to see you folks are still working on this.

    Glad to see an old modder checking in. ;) I was really motivated about having your custom kernel on v20B... So I read up on how to compile kernels and let me tell you it's pretty easy to do! Now I have to figure out how to fix liblights. ;)

    Whenever I try to download something on market, the phone resprings (sorry, don't know what the android term would be) and so I can't download anything. Is that part of the play market issues you mentioned in your post? I'm still on the old market because it won't let me download or upgrade anything.

    Otherwise, thanks for the amazing tweaks, the phone feels fast now.

    Some more info: The kernel is the right version (says Karendar) but the software version is still at v20a.

    Software version is just a string I forgot to modify, you can ignore that. I'll fix it eventually (Next release). As for market issues, I have none here so I can't really say what's going on. Do you know how to pull a logcat? Get the application alogcat and get me a log of what's happening, might be able to see if it's ROM related or something wrong with your phone.

    Otherwise, have you tried to clear market data through settings/applications? Or do a factory reset?

    I know I've had some issues updating to the latest Vendor.apk on my ROM... But doesn't stop anything from working on my end.

    Before upgrading the ROM, did you flash stock V20B?

    Ahhh.... Now I see what's wrong, lol. The phone is still on v20a for some reason. I restored my nandroid backup and checked the settings, it's gingerbread 2.3.3 but the software version is still v20a. I thought it was v20b before I flashed anything, but I guess I was mistaken. Is that what's causing the problems?
    How can I update to v20b?

    You have two methods of proceeding. You can either use the LG update software which has been known to cause issues with some, or you can use the KDZ firmware update software supplied in the "Foolproof guide to restore a bricked SHine plus" thread posted by seanre453. I suggest using the foolproof guide if you're a little tech savvy as it works great and avoids having issues with lost data link during flash from the LG update. To get the V20B ROM, grab it from here:


    You can find the foolproof guide in the all things root thread. Once the phone is updated to v20B, you have to root again and flash custom recovery and then flash my ROM over.
