Did you flash the baseband?
Yes I did
After flashing the baseband you have to reboot into recovery and wipe cache. Then your market should work.
That did the trick, thanks so much
First-time poster but have been lurking a while. Had been using and loving 0.2 for about a week then updated to 0.3. Works pretty well but does seem a tad sluggish compared to 0.2. My calc app also force closes whenever I open it. That's okay, I just uninstalled it and installed RealCalc instead!
Overall, great work and thanks so much for turning the Ally into a decent little phone!
Ok so my calculator works, I didn't have to do anything either it just works. I did have a couple of problems though when it came to certain pre-installed apps. After I did the V0.3 upgrade everything was working flawlessly, or at least everything I tried. I felt confident that I could do the A2SD by creating a partition on my (stock, class 4) SD card. I went through and followed the instructions provided by savoxis and I even tested it afterward and things seemed fine. A few of the pre-installed apps (barnacle, spare parts, astro, testing app, Velocity about app, Velocity tips widget) stopped working, matter of fact they only came up through the applications manager in the settings menu, and then they didn't have proper icons or proper names, so I uninstalled them, re-downloaded and re-installed them and now they work fine. Also, when I connect my phone to my computer (Windows XP Pro laptop) I can't see the application partition (ext3), however I do see it in Astro File Manager. Additionally, I can't seem to install the LG Clock & Weather Widget that I downloaded from the list on page one of this thread (Trident's links in the first post), I assume it's because I can't install it on internal memory. I did notice a sluggish response initially, then I re-installed Advanced Task Killer (Ayal Team application) and then things seemed to speed up. I know there is an "Optimized Native Process Manager" with "*No need to use task killers*", but perhaps something isn't working right with it and that's the cause for laggy installs. Like always, I'm just passing along observations. Great work Trident, another great leap for a side note device!
Did you partiton your sdcard after flashing velocity v0.3? If so thats the wrong method as i have encountered errors with downloaded apps. You should partion the sdcard before flashing velocity. You will not see the ext partiton in windows because windows does not support or use the ext file system, linux does. You will need some 3rd party program for that or install a linux distro.
Ugh!! Figures!! I was so excited to get this installed, of course I did it out of order!! Oh well, I'll re-flash and try again!! Man I just hate going through all the settings again. As for not seeing it through the computer, I thought it might be a Windows issue, not like that's uncommon! KAHN!!!!!!!!
Stop by irc if you need any assistance.
No offense to RedFury but I was REALLY not feeling the theme this time around. I found the notification icons hard to read in terms of if I had service or not and made a theme.
Follow the instructions, and make sure usb debugging is enabled.
And you know I might just hit you up on that, I've been meaning to check it out for a while but just haven't had an issue to bug people with yet!
You can come just to talk to fellow ally owners.
I'm still curious if anyone else has had Youtube issues or if I'm the unlucky one.
Any info would be greatly appreciated. I'm about to reflash v0.3 and see if that's fixes it.
I've been stuck in a "Velocity" boot loop since I originally posted this 50 minutes ago. :-(
I just noticed that Youtube isn't on my phone at all. I don't normally use it so I'm not worried about it, just think I may look to download it.
I have no youtube search issues. But I do have the FC on the calc.
Dots is the best. Thank you for helping unstick my Ally.
The irc channel is great at giving helpful advice too.
Dumb double post. I didn't even hit the submit button twice. Or so I think.
I uninstalled the calculator, reinstalled it, and still fc's. So I just took it off and downloaded a different one from the market.
As for youtube mine is working fine, I think. I never really used it before so I have no basis for comparison but I don't get any errors or anything.
hey I would LOVE to get Velocity, I tried 2 and liked it. The only problem is that I am a big fan of the LG Home, I like the bottom launcher and how they organize the preinstalled and your apps. Is there a way I can get the LG Home with this? Also is it possible to get back a couple of the apps that were removed (like the lg messaging one maybe?)
thanks a lot for your help!
I doubt lg home will ever put into any rom as it takes a lot of memory to run, why not just use launcherpro? As for any other lg apps, you will probably never see those in a rom either, sorry.
I know this was asked before. But there are still a few of us waiting to get V0.3 from Rom Manager.
P.S. -Love your work so far definitely makes you feel like you get your money's worth for the Ally with Velocity. Will definitely be donating soon. Thanks
Well one of my favorite things about the ally is the way it groups the apps has preinstalled and post installed. just makes stuff so much easier to find, especially considering i dont use the home screen much. also how would i manage to get other apps that were removed back on? like City ID?
May be stupid question, but if I re-flash ROM, do I also need to re-flash -Baseband Version VS740MVB.5210.1015: (new radio.img)?
All right so I have been converted to the dark side. I am now checking out this AWESOME rom made by Trident. I am only having one problem.
I cant seem to get the LG weather and clock Widget .apk that trident provided to work. I got think free to work I also got backup assistant to work. Just no weather widget. It says application not installed and goes about its merry way. LOL any help would be appreciated.
Thanks so Much
