    OK. I have my lg Ally with the new Jit kernel (Thanks Drellisdee), with Velocity 0.2 (Thanks Trident) and am overclocking at 768 mhz. I want to apply the new update, VZB, and then put velocity and the jit kernel back. So my thoughts are that I would have to...
    1.) Backup rom/Apps/Data (Titanium Backup/ROM Manager)
    2.) Go into Recovery (Clockworkmod) and make a nendroid backup.
    3.) Wipe Dalvik, data, and cache.
    4.) Install vzb via Drellisdee's rooted update (After i check md5)
    5.) Then Apply Velocity 0.2
    6.) Apply the kernel
    7.) Restore data from titanium backup...

    Is this what I would do? What about the ally's unofficial "V9" update that has to be installed manually... Is that worth it or should I just do VZB?
    Also, do I need to go to a stock rom proior to the update?

    Thanks to all in advance.

    I did what you did above and it worked fine. I didn't make a nandroid backup though. Already had one previously. I think once you put Velocity on you will loose the 'unoffical' LG update. However you will gain the new radio from it. You don't have to go to stock prior to updating.

    If you make an nandroid backup you can skip part of step 1 with titanium. Because the nandroid backup should backup your ENTIRE phone. You could also skip 5,6, and 7 i believe because if you restore the nandroid backup your phone will be back in the state when you made the backup and you'll have the new radio.img.

    I don't think he can skip step 6 because he wants the new kernel. If a nandroid backup restores the radio as well, then I don't think a nandroid backup will work in this case. However, if it doesn't restore the radio, then you probably could: install kernel over velocity .2, nandroid backup, install new radio rom, restore nandroid backup. Like I said, this would only work if a nandroid backup does NOT restore the radio.

    Well im not sure if a nandroid restore will override the new radio with the old one. In the thread about the update drellisdee states that the radio won't be overwritten if re flashing a new rom over the recovery. I believe that the nandroid backup will restore the JIT kernel because it backs up your ENTIRE system.

    Not sure why it wasn't backed up. Even though Visual Voice Mail is not included on velocity search the market you can download it there.

    I'm not allowed to give out any information but I think its safe to say that the process on .3 is going really fast, Trident is going a kiss-ass job at custom ROM's so donate to him and drellisdee (custom kernel work) for their work and just have a little patience, like I said I think the development process is going fairly fast.

    I think this is probably the right place to ask this. First of all I love the Ally, I went swimming with it (oops) and after a couple days in a rice bag, it is good as new with just a little water damage in the screen, which is slowly disappearing. But I am getting a new phone anyway, and I have Velocity as well as the dres' kernel running on the old one, but i want to keep all of my settings on the new one. If i back it up with rom manager will it load everything onto the new one off of the SD? Or do i have to reinstall everything and then run a restore to get all the settings? Anyone know? Thanks.

    Sounds like it'd work fine to me, assuming you stick it back in the right place when you download rom manager on the new phone and such. Honestly i'd look into seeing if u can keep the Sd card you have, and save yourself a bunch of copying files, but thats just me.
