    That's good you got it fixxed. Btw u loss root when u do that but u already know this by now. I never needed the lg support tool tho worked without that.

    Ad is there anyone who knows how to edit the build.pro:(p so the stock aosp Lockscreen runs. I hate the lg slide up unlocker. I know there is widget locker but the mytouch q has the aosp lockcreen built into it just hidden. I can only get it to half work.

    Thankyou to everyone devoted to the C800. I admit Im pretty new to mobile deving but am a pretty technical guy. I dont know if i missed what im looking for but, I rooted my phone using super one click, and all went well. Now I want to sell my phone And I want to get back to original rom and stock out of the box state. I ve heard talk of a program called Odin Im not sure if this will work as I cant even find a file containg the stock ROM. any help would be apreciated thanx team.

    If you want root on phone and set to stock you can hard reset phone
    Important: A hard reset restores the original factory settings and erases content, including downloaded ringtones, images, programs, and contacts stored in the internal memory. This feature allows for resetting of sound profiles, display settings, and phone or memory card settings. To perform a hard reset using the hardware keys, follow these steps: Note: Timing is critical in pressing/releasing keys. Back up all necessary data. See: Preparing for a master reset on Android. Turn off the phone. Note: If the phone is unresponsive and does not turn off, remove the battery and then re-insert it. Press and simultaneously hold the Volume Down, Qwerty F, and Qwerty A keys. Press and hold the Power/Lock key. Release only the Power/Lock key after you see the LG logo. Note: If you see the Android shooting up, the reset hasnt been completed and you will need to restart. Release the remaining keys after the LG logo flashes. The Android Unpacking screen appears. The phone will restart and complete the factory reset.


    if you want to remove root and set to stock use super one click click Unroot
    then use Hard reset

    I have found the emergency mode for the LG Mytouch Q C800
    Vol up + Key E + Power Please Test to confirm this works.

    Hm. Now that there are clear instructions for rooting the LG MyTouch Q (msg #1), unrooting it (msg #58), and unbricking it (msg #54), I'm gonna go ahead and root it. Big thanks to MisterFamilyGuy, vtinoc. and especially brettvanpelt for the unbricking information.

    Got the lockscreen to work good. Just need to fix it so the lg lockscreen does not come up during an phone call.

    So if any one wants to try out the stock lockscreen I know how to get it working, other than during an phone call.

    The Jenkins page is kaput. However, I snagged the archive.zip for the c800 86304ef9982d045fd52d904a2b9a5740 build before it went away. Is this a ClockWorkMod recovery image for c800? If so, is it based on the stock recovery image from message #1 or what?

    Been having a blast with my rooted c800. Installed Zeam launcher which is very lightweight but all I need. Noticed that freezing the idiotic Genius button and Dragon speech causes big instability problems, with frequent slowdowns, and reboots. Unfreezing them fixes the problem. Freezing all the Google stuff just erases your Google account from the phone, so you have to unfreeze it all and input it again, but no harm done.

    The process sys.Manager is actually a rootkit installed by T-Mobile called Carrier IQ. There's a very good removal program by TrevE at the Play Store for .99 named Logging Removal Key, but you have to first download the main part of the program from his website at Android Security Test | Home to Logging Test App . It's called Logging Test App, and I'm using version 13. It also fixes a bunch of other security issues. The brick warnings are loud and clear, but it has worked fine on my c800 so far.

    You can also install a (non-chroot!) version of Debian or Ubuntu on your SD card that works alongside Android. Just get Debian-Kit app from Play Store and read the clear instructions. The GUI works, but is way too slow on my phone. Includes package management capability so you can install whatever you want from Debian or Ubuntu repositories.

    Some other favorite apps are K9 email, APG (GPG for android), Avast antivirus (includes a firewall for blocking adware that tries to phone home), DaTuner Pro (an excellent guitar tuner), DroidEdit programmer's editor, Luks Manager for encryption, and Orbot (Tor for Android, works great).

    I like ROM Toolbox Pro for tinkering with my system, but don't use the fonts installer or the boot animation changer, or any of the other stuff on that third tab. First two tabs everything works ok. JRUMMY claims that ROM Toolbox Pro is like ROM Manager, Titanium Backup, and some other big-name stuff all put together.

    SD-Maid is good for cleaning up your SD card, getting rid of duplicate files, etc. Total Commander is about the best file manager, but X-Plore and Ghost Commander are also good.

    Android Terminal Emulator by Jack Palevich is better than ConnectBot in my opinion, for accessing the Android (or Linux) commandline.

    If you like widgets, some of the best ones are Voice Notify, Whiteboard Pro, Micro CPU Monitor, Make Your Clock, and the IP widget by Dieter Thiess.

    Quick Pic is good for viewing images, and Text Secure is good for keeping your text messages private and backing them up. Angel Browser isn't very well known, but works great and is highly configurable. One of the few Android Browsers with proxy settings.

    OK, I'll shut up now. :)

    Ordered a Samsung Galaxy Nexus late last night from the Google Play Store for $350. I sure hope it gets shipped before the Apple injunction goes into effect. I have CWM, fastboot, stock ROMs, Cyanogenmod-9 beta1, and preliminary Jellybean ROM waiting for it on my hard drive. But I'm keeping my C800. It's a lot of fun.

    Hey friends,
    I have this phone, and I downloaded the source from LG. To extract the archives, they must be renamed to .tar
    Following the instructions in the enclosed readme, I'm downloading the gingerbread source into the folder. Looking through the source, this should make a clean AOSP build. No LG or T-Mobile bullshit added at all.
    I'll let y'all know the result.

    Hi mudtub I hope you can build this from source.
    I tried and failed lol I'm such a newbe.
    If you do build we will be able to flash within the android recovery menu.
    Thank you for your work.

    I don't think that we can make a .zip with what LG provided. Likely, it makes files for fastboot. Less is provided for the C800 as compared to the E739.
    Setting up a proper build environment for this is... trifling. Mostly because I'm building in Ubuntu 12.04. I finally seem to be getting somewhere, though. :D

    So, to install this, theoretically, you would download the files I provide, then run
    Code (Text):
    1. adb reboot bootloader
    and
    Code (Text):
    1. fastboot flashall -w
    when it is in fastboot mode.

    As for making a clockwork or otherwise recovery, with these files it should be possible.

    It seems to be compiling okay now. We'll see in a bit.

    I uploaded the archive86304ef9982d045fd52d904a2b9a5740.zip, a screenshot of the Jenkins page, and the console output from the build to 4squared. Please be aware that I haven't tried these files out and I have no idea if they work or not.

    Use them at your own risk.

    Just go to 4shared folder - My 4shared (free signup) and download away.

    I finally got a successful build, and yes, they are image files. :beer:
    I will open a new thread, since this is AOSP and not a recovery.

    This is what is in /out/target/product/generic when we have a successful build.
