    Must I use a computer to do this or can I do directly from phone?
    Unzip first?
    Have drivers on computer?

    When flashing a ROM, Theme or whatever do you need to wipe all user data or do you just wipe data, cache and dalvick cache. I seem to get better results when I wipe all user data but it is a pain setting up my phone again. I guess I am asking can I flash a theme and still keep my contacts and everything on my phone the same?

    Rooted my OM just fine (and dropped SU in at the same time)!
    However, I don't see the custom recovery option during shut down?

    GREAT just to have 2.2.2 rooted!!!

    turn phone off..while its off,hold vol down,home and power until the 4 buttons at the bottom light up..then release the buttons and it will boot into recovery.

    Oh, DUH on me, LOL
    Another NOOB Q, once in recovery mode how do you exit back to normal mode, just turn the phone off and back on?

    All custom recoveries have a shutdown and a reboot selection.

    Clockwork uses the camera to make a selection, but the other two uses the menu button to make selections.

    OK, thank you!
    I've read many places that the RomManager & CWM has cause problems, is this still true for the OM?

    I just don't want to screw anything up (again).

    I have 3 Optimus M's. It only worked on one. I've since removed it and put GetItNowMarketing recovery on all of the phones. It does the job.

    I myself have 2 Optimus' and had joneidy's recovery on my first one. Had a melt down and bricked it. So I reflashed the stock rom and put the GNM recovery on it. Got my second OM and it had/has the reboot issue so I also put the GNM recovery on it and have been flashing roms like crazy to see the best/stable one. So far I like the CM7 mods, but the stock debloated with the OC kernel seems to be less buggy on my one OM. My other one can run stable at 825/806 but I was getting rebooted when activated. Now that I don't have it active it doesn't reboot! And seems like the more flashing I do to my good OM, its starting to randomly reboot and seem buggy. I know its not the roms but I am and have been tempted to *228 and activate my other one to see if I get any different results.

    Does the new rom with edify support have a2sd also?

    More questions-
    Does the new rom have the throttle-be-gone built in? There was a separate download before... Now I only see it in the ICS Theme.
  14. mikekelso421

    mikekelso421 Well-Known Member

    Yea,a2sd is baked in. Should be good upon first boot.

    As for the throttle b gone. Since the ics theme seems to be the hotness,I just edited it to take out the throttle. Ill make a universal white clock with the throttle removed for those who don't want to use the ics theme.

    When you say White clock, is that on the white status bar with black text? Like in the original EZ Rider ROM.

    In ADB I'm getting permission denied for su. I just want to get rid of that annoying mobileposse. Any help is appreciated.

    Edit: Okay. I didn't know I had to nav to the SD card. Filesystem now remounted and mobileposse removed.

    Black status bar with white text ...the stock is white status bar black text.

    I had lost my hope on this phone and had thought this day would never come.. I got tired of my phone freezing every 5 seconds and all the hard times it gave me so I put it away in my closet and bought the Samsung Galaxy Indulge 4G. My mom wanted this phone after I got my new one, but I didn't want to give it to her because of all the problems. But now months after finally there is a way to root 2.2.2. This guide is pretty simple, after that I flashed over to kelsomod, and then to CM7 By Reppard.

    Just letting you guys know that if you try to flash a ROM right after you are done rooting your phone, your phone will have a brick and stay stuck on the boot logo (You will still be able to go to recovery) to avoid that just flash the kelsomod rom right after rooting, and from then on, flash any LG Optimus M ROM you want.

    I thought there's a different kernel when you update to 2.2.2 which helps a lot from 2.2.1 and lower regardless of what you use for ROMs.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong on this.

    The updated 2.2.2 kernel works for some but not others. So far it is working better for me than the overclocked kernel.

    Can anyone tell me what ROMS are ok to use for OM 2.2.2?
    I really like the joneidy sense rom but not sure if it will work?

  22. mikekelso421

    mikekelso421 Well-Known Member

    You can flash any rom for the om no matter firmware it came with stock.

    @ mikekelso421 hey kelso love the root works awesomly. But one problem though. on youtube (and ive seen this problem posted somewhere else but no help) i get a green/purple line at the top of videos viewed in high qualtiy. also there is discoloration as well. mostly wrong colors or just black and white. do you know how i can fix this? the other person who posted the same problem used your mod (if thats how its called i get confused with this terminology mainly cuz im new to android flashing, except psp :lol)
