    haha well it's gonna take longer than i thought...

    after installing framework i still couldn't get systemui to decompile.. so as of now i grabbed the stock/rooted backup file of zva and am currently de-odexing the stock system files.. so im gonna be starting from scratch here :D

    I got stuck bootlooping at lg screen. Let it do that for about ten minutes and pulled battery to do hard key recovery. At first it took me to stock recover i thought i was a goner. Lol.

    did it work for anybody else if so i will reflash.
  12. LDrifta

    LDrifta No Stranger 2 Danger Developer

    ok before i shoot myself do me a favor lol can you re-flash the rom but then flash a different kernel to it right after, hopefully it just my boot.img :/ if not than i gotta re-do lol

    actually better yet.. test this for me if possible.. it's the boot.img im using :D flash it over broken out, i just need to know if it boots or loops lol

  13. airtioteclint

    airtioteclint Well-Known Member

    I can do that but what do you mean flash another kernal. Maybe that was what i did wrong. I just flashed it same way as broken out from stock zva. I will try the second one can you provide instructions.?
  14. LDrifta

    LDrifta No Stranger 2 Danger Developer

    yeah nvm this should answer my questions lol, i meant like flash mt's kernel but i dont think he provided it in a flashable zip so just try the one i provided above flashed on broken out

    Error zva speed kernel connect.zip (status 7) installation aborted.
  16. LDrifta

    LDrifta No Stranger 2 Danger Developer

    dammit lol ill fix that hold on..

    on a side note: im having some serious issues trying to decompile the systemui.apk for this device.. anyone have any advice? i tried everything i know of.. im using pure stock de-odex framework & systemui apk's i installed the stock framework but still cant decompile the stock systemui. which is a big problem..

    Nope. Same error message. You should probably wait on the other testers. Maybe I'm doing something wrong.
  19. LDrifta

    LDrifta No Stranger 2 Danger Developer

    what are you doing exactly?
    o and op updated also test 2 & 3
  20. airtioteclint

    airtioteclint Well-Known Member

    I reboot into recovery.
    Factory reset/wipe data
    clear cache
    clear dalvik
    clear battery
    install zip from sd

    this is the method i did for all three. The first from zva. Second two from broken out.

    LDrifta No Stranger 2 Danger Developer

    ok well has anyone else tested these yet?? i need feedback before i can continue.. lol
  23. airtioteclint

    airtioteclint Well-Known Member

    Yeah I've been waiting also. I didn't want u to do unnecessary work if mines is an isolated case.

    Does it matter what rom we started with before flashing?
  24. LDrifta

    LDrifta No Stranger 2 Danger Developer

    shouldn't... if anything test 3 should work perfect.. but i guess not.. lol

    i dont know why the hell it's not booting.. :(
