    It works on the ZTE Avid.....a non LG phone. Even if it doesnt work, it won't brick you.

    Also the LG motions recovery works on the spirit, they use different root methods though.

    oh good point. If someone were to upload a clean backup of their phone somewhere it could be helpful. Idk if it would help my tethering issue but I see how it can do some good now

    That would definitely help. Someone lurking around can download that and whip up a rom for you guys. Not that I'm volunteering! lol Just sayin.

    From the backup upload....

    Don't worry about personal info, that's in data.ext4.tar which you will not be uploading.

    Good luck guys ;)

    Hey guys. I'm an Admire user that is switching to Verizon and getting a Lucid 2 tomorrow. My point is I have a lot of experience with flashing, roms, etc on various phones. But I digress...

    Having root and CWM should allow you to then have SU as well, giving you access to edit the framework-res (I think?) to allow certain restricted features like HotSpot and tethering (ie, setting from "false" to "true" ) Aside from that, you should at LEAST be able to remove bloatware and free up system memory, but even still, these are things that are easier done individually with a written guide than risking making a backup to share, at least until a dev gets on this phone and makes something (without bricking his own device in the process, lol)

    To edit framework-res or any other apk, you would have to decompile it first then make your changes and compile it back after. You sure can remove bloatware though.

    There is no risk in uploading a backup as long as you do not include data.ext4.tar which is where personal data is located.

    I don't have this phone, but I can make a rom for it if I decided to. Someone needs to post a system pull for any devs or chefs that don't have this phone to make a rom for you guys.

    I already offered to write the edify script for this device. Without it, no roms will flash. I'm just waiting on the system pull.

    It's what you posted in the link, but the 2 large files give me a corrupt file error when I try to extract them.


    Don't worry let's just wait till sammyz posts it.

    "If" I whip up something, would you be willing to test before I post it?

    That might be the only way I do it aside from the edify script.

    P.S. I have my PM box open at UPP. If you ever need to pm me, I go by same username. I saw you there also.

    Right, I knew that, I promise. What I was thinking about was making changes to the build.prop. I used to have to edit mine on my Admire to change the tethering from "false" to "true" to make it work. I think tethering itself would require more than a simple build.prop change but still, there are probably some other little tweaks you can do to make it do something. Right?

    I don't own the phone man

    I just know how to get the system.img without the phone :p

    Dang I don't own one either. It's why I wanted someone reliable with experience to test.

    Welp, there goes that idea. lol

    All good, I need the time anyway. Working on another rom for the Spirit. Hopefully they don't see this post till I finish. ssssshhhhhh
