    You guys really are quite brilliant. Can't imagine what you all do for a 9-5...turn water into wine or lead into gold?

    Just a heads up:

    Themes from http://androidforums.com/ally-all-things-root/266458-rom-froyo-rom-2-2-1-a.html will not work on Velocity. I will port Luna when I get time and Im sure GRZLA is already planning on porting JAMT and Elegant Steel.

    Boot Animations found on the http://androidforums.com/ally-all-things-root/266458-rom-froyo-rom-2-2-1-a.html will work with Velocity.

    Font Packages found on 261 Flashable Font Packs - Change your system fonts the easy way! - xda-developers WILL work with Velocity. Just make sure you turn signature verification off in recovery

    Woops. I flashed Luna theme over Velocity before you posted this...Idk what you got when trying, but it works for me. No fc's, nothing missing...de nada. Hell, I even customized the theme with MM zips from droidpirate.com and they work fine.

    Trident, Getitnowmarketing, and Savoxis: Thank you guys and anyone else on the Velocity team that I may have missed. The work you do for our phones is outstanding. I know I don't have the time or patience to do any of what you do myself and I am extremely grateful. I'm glad we didn't lose you Trident. The Ally may not be a high end phone from LG, but your dev work brings it there. Thanks again for all you do. We all waited a long time for Froyo and the prospects of Froyo-based roms. It's amazing how quick Velocity 1.0 came out. Again, awesome job guys. When I get my money I will be making a donation to you guys.

    I installed this with the SuperOneClick root method and using ROM Manager to flash RA. Went flawlessly. The ROM is smooth as silk. Many thanks to the development team.

    For shits and giggles I selected the "odex" option in the scripts. Now my market FCs and I can't download anything. Not a big deal, I have a nandroid, but am curious if this is a known issue.

    I also am wondering what the ext4 support is for.

    Thanks for the great ROM guys, love it.

    Quadrant Standard is failing when I try to run it. I've tried clearing cache and Dalvik Cache, and I have uninstalled and reinstalled twice now. The tests do not all run and after the Benchmark Result screen comes up and I click "Yes", I get the error "Service call failed." It then force closes.

    Any suggestions?

    It's not a velocity thing, it's a froyo bug. Mine was doing that before I installed velocity. I used "move to sd" and i did the same thing. At least it still works!

    @ Trident-

    what are you doing to get such high quadrants? at 806 CPU i barely break 1000. im curious to see what other tweaks can be done to the phone? or is it just the phone. past 844 it reboots when i attempt to run quads. is there anything to be done to increase these numbers? i leave it at 806 cpu and it runs perfect. love the rom just curious about quad numbers. thanks

    So what were to happen if one flashed the recovery.img from the rom to a 2.1 ally. There must be a simple way to upgrade the phone. Can't a script be formed in the rom to allow the recovery to wipe the phone then install 2.2 from 2.1? I'm sticking to 2.1 for now since its stable velocity 0.4 altho id love to upgrade once there's a stable way of doen so.

    The scores Trident have posted are off of the bare ROM i am assuming. Your scores will vary with the amount of apps you have installed/running.

    Side note: I can overclock much higher now, I think its due to the smartass setting.

    Doing so replaced the entire framework-res.apk, and in doing so you lost your reboot/recovery option when holding the power button and any other improvments made to the framework.

    Done. 3 hours and 21 minutes from Velocity v.04 on 2.1 to Velocity 1.0 on 2.2.1 and all I can say is it was worth every excruciating minute. Quadrant score on stock ALLY was 424. With Velocity v.04 on 2.1 it was around 520 reliably overclocked to 768 (any higher was KP). With Velocity v.1 on 2.21 overclocked to 787 smartass governor (that seems stable) the Quadrant score is 1099. But the overall phone experience is much more Droid X than Ally now. I figure the Dev's saved me $500 for having to buy a phone. I will be donating accordingly. However, I do want to thank Trident, Getitnowmarketing and Savoxis for doing this ROM - but more importantly, Trident...THANK YOU for saving me by allowing me to disable OTA in v.04 and NOT moving to FROYO on the OTA - from what I have heard and actually seen on friend's ALLY's it is a disaster. My first post, have lurked for a while - sorry for the long post. :)

    Is there a way to automatically mount/unmount the SD card when plugging in to the computer? I'm too lazy to have to manually mount every time!

    AWESOME ROM!!! I'm able to OC to 825 stable and get a quadrant score of 1250

    Thank you Trident, GNM, Savoxis!

    I just discovered what "tethering" is and I am pumped about this feature! This is completely free of data charges?!?!?!? I guess some things in life are free. I'm wireless tethering right now, just to try it out. AWESOME

    Glad you all stayed, i too would have dumped the ally if not for you guys and the other devs and helpers!!!! Again, great work guys,,,,

    None that I'm aware of and I've looked all through the related android source code as I had to rebuild the part that mounts your sd card for the new kernel's drivers.

    Just started playing with the scripts.... very awesome. I know more are coming, very excited. I really like the Velocity boot stuff. I dig the font editor script very nice touch. I love the GB theming, it has the look I've been trying to create on y own for awhile, finally have the white text on the black background. Works great with my own apps. I've been using the Go Launcher Ex, and it's quick. So far I have no (that is none) issues. KP's above 806 (whatever that's fast enough). I can stable run at 768, get quadrants higher than Droid x. I like running at 600, better on the battery and smooth as glass (quadrants at about 1024).

    Again I say to you gentlemen, bravo. You have made my phone what i wanted it to be. Thank you.
