This thread is deprecated go here for the final
can you elaborate on this please? you mean we need to use lgnpst in recovery mode and flash the phone with this new ROM???
what are the benefits of using this rom vs a regular stock rom?
thanks for the answer.
Okay basically this is a stock rom that you flash through the custom recovery (make sure to thank getitnowmarketing and andyo70). Place this on your sdcard and go into the custom recovery and flash away. You may have to rename the zip to update zip. my beta tester is off and away
No I'm not. I'm right here.
I'll test it in a bit.
Flashed. Does not give root access when starting adb shell. Had to reroot with z4root.
Good to know i,ve got an update zip that fixes it. Im at school and will be home around ten eastern time. So im on my phone till then. Ive also got a boot.img as well.
What are the top five or so apps everyone wants me to remove?
Thanks again andy
That's a tough one. Some people may want things others don't.
I'd personally say definitely:
MobilePosse.apk - MyExtras
SNS.apk - LG Facebook and Twitter app (The ones for download in Android Market are better and have more features)
UNO_DEMO_LG_MS690_EN_NONIGP_MetroPCs_TS_307.apk - UNO Game Demo
Email.apk - Email app (Gmail is already installed as well, but the Email.apk I believe allows you to setup email for providers that don't have their own separate apps)
yeah i can definitey remove those. i also wanna get rid of that damn bootanimation everytime my girl would restart her phone i had to hear it.
Thats not the bootanimation. That the splashscreen. Boot animation is the animation after splash that doesn't make noise and displays an animated android logo.
I would keep the email app. I have SEVERAL email addresses. I use gmail of course, but the email app could be useful.
MyExtras -- the only thing extra seems to be ads.
UNO -- not free
Free Games -- not free.
OK, the ones I have bolded in black are the really annoying ones. There's EIGHT.
You could use my Code:Optimus-M_boot.imgOops, Will fix and post soon!
- disabled the carrier splash screen and sound.
- added /data/local/bin to the path.
- added terminfo for nano editor.
- added busybox's run-parts execution command at boot.
- enabled ADB as ROOT
- enabled Debug Mode
Still hitting a wall with the display dude. Flickering issue is still present.
so this is the first rom i tho some else was doing the rom
No and yes. It a rom yes but it is just the stock one we already have on the Optimus M with root already enabled. There's no cosmetic modifications or anything yet. asadullah needs to fix it though as it does not in fact give you root.
just updated the first post with an update to flash after you flash the main rom.
Sorry about the silly question. How can I download the Optimus M custom recovery? It's password protected.
I just downloaded and extracted it no problem. didn't use a password or nothing
You went here
He was trying to download the beta which was only made available to me for testing I believe. That file has now been made private, yes. You want the link asadullah just posted.
updated first post.
I wish I had this phone to try out this rom... Great job! Very well put together.
Thanks. Would be nice to have this phone as well
just tap on your girls shoulder and be like, "Hey look over there!" and YOINK! Now you have the phone.
On this weekend I will give it a try. Not today because I have a lot of work to do and need my Optimus working all day. Yesterday installed the recovery, the Beta Kernell and the stagefright. My Optimus is Flying!!!! I really appreciate all your good work. Thanx
Beta kernel should be fully tested and not referred to as beta any longer I suppose. LOL
The un-beta should be on this page: http://androidforums.com/getitnowmarketing/256286-custom-recovery-ms690-optimus-m.html#post2131137
Agree with you. It works awsome. Just posted on that thread that and some other findings
