Highly recommended.
I also use launcherpro and have never had any issues with it. Wouldn't mind it being the default launcher.

I'm running Launcher Pro with this ROM and it's snappy for me. Just as fast, if not a bit faster than stock. I just like the customization it provides.

So i had to restore my old ROM, after reflashing to the Velocity rom, I noticed that the boot logo was still the LG, and Verizon things, i though those had been removed. I tried flashing numerous times and they still are showing up. Were they always there on this rom, or is mine not flashing right?

LG and Verizon will still show up, It'll just show the Droid eye instead of "Android" thats the only thing that changes.

I went ahead and decided to give this one a try. I like the new boot image (even though its a little lagged) and the droid sounds and wallpaper. But i could not get the gmail sync to work correctly even after wiping cache. Also when receiving a text sometimes the LED light would come on but not always and swype would not work with the rom. Something about being compatible (cant remember what the error was.)

Not a bad ROM in the least. I don't like the droid 'eye' on bootup or the droid sounds, but that's just me. It's sort of a shame that for now instead of getting completely reworked roms (or 2.2) we're just getting tweaked versions of the stock kernel. But this is the best one I've come across. Plus, with the release of the kernel source by LG, I'll bet that soon we'll be getting some real killer stuff down the road, and most likely 2.2.

Of course, I've only come across four in total..

Oh, by the way, I don't think apps2sd is enabled, and swap might be disabled as well. Could you possibly enable those two features for the next Velocity release?

From my understanding, the lg and verizon logos are located in splash1 and splash2 in the NAND.

Some info here. They need to be installed with fastboot. Though the ally may be different.

Customization | Android Open Source

If you don't mind me asking, where is the location of the Android/Droid boot splash?

My gmail works fine and so does swype. You may have the wrong version of swype. Search google for swype for ally, its either the first or second link.

I tried this rom and it works pretty good. I am new to the process of flashing new roms from rom manager. I was just going to do the change-over to this rom in steps and when it asked to backup current rom and wipe, I only selected backup. (I thought it would backup and go back to menu) but it went right into the install/flash of this rom. All of my apps and information remained to include my background image after this rom was installed. Is this how it is normally?

I thought when installing a new rom it would over-write all of my stuff in the phone and be like a fresh phone. Or is it the wipe cache setting that does that? Needless to say everything seems to work. Wierd.

Wipe cache and data is the option and you should do it before flashing a rom to make sure everything runs smoothly. I personally back up all of my apps using appbrain from the market. Once I flashed velocity that's the first thing I downloaded and it made me login to my appbrain account and had all of my apps ready to download/install.

I love this rom it is very fast and very stable. I have one question is anyone having problems with their camera or is it just my phone? When I take a picture I can see but when I go to view it, it is just a blob of color.

Can someone help me? I reverted back to the original rom to check some differences and now I can't install this ROM back...every time I try to get clockwork mod to install the rom all it does is just reboot the phone.

Had this problem, all you have to do is go into rom manager and chose the option to flash clockworkmod recovery. after that it should work again

Yeah ROM Manager has its little issues that are unexplainable like not being able to flash a new ROM without USB Plugged in (on some phones) and than you cant flash another ROM without Clockworkmod, idk what the deal is, maybe there's a reason for these things and I just dont know =/.

Is anyone else having the problems I am having? Trying to preview/set live wallpapers like Galaxy and some of the other live wall papers is causing "process com.android.wallpaper" to stop unexpectedly. I made sure to clear data and cache before installing this rom.

Is that not the data/cache its asking you to clear before it boots into recovery mode with ROM Manager? If so yes, if not then no...and how do I clear it? Thanks

EDIT: Okay, I rebooted into recovery and wiped the dalvick cache, rebooted the phone, made ROM manager redownload, wipe data and cache and install the rom again and I still get some of the live wallpapers making the app crash.

try putting the rom on your sd card, boot into recovery, clear data/cache and dalvik cache then install the rom from recovery, im not sure, but im guessing the dalvik cache remakes it self when you turn the phone on

Either I'm not doing something right or this rom just don't like my phone...I put it on the sd card and did everything and my live wallpapers still crash.

Anyone else having problems with the youtube widget on this rom? The search button rarely seems to work for me, and when it does the search results are extremely lacking... is there a way for me to install the youtube app that came with the ally insteaf of this "better" one?

Are you sure all of you are cleaning cache+data, and dalviks cache because i had the bugs before i cleared it, after clearing everything it all worked fine.

I don't like ROM manager or clockworkmod recovery. That RA_GMN thing is better in my opinion. It's a little difficult to set up if you don't know what you're doing, but once you do it you don't have to worry about it again.

Well I am glad I'm not the only one having these issues...I love the rom too, just wish I could fix it lol. Hopefully Trident can figure out why they are crashing.

Default Wow!!

Ok So I just flashed to the Velocity Rom. It was really cool! I didnt look at it for very long but I didnt seem to have any problems getting my gmail.
Maybe I dont understand the real problem that everyone is haveing though. Then I flashed back to my saved Nandroid. It was PERFECT!!!
Exactly the way I left it. I mean to the most Minute detail. AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME. And if what Vmanisme and Zombiexx said is true you should be able to put you Nandroid on a brand new LG Ally.

That is completely Sique.

Now for this stupid NOOB (aka me)

How do you get you contacts back if say you wanted to use this Velocity Rom or any other Rom for that matter?

I have so much to learn (I guess you can call me Grass Hoppa.)

Sorry for the bugs and slight confusion guys.. it's really, really hard to build a ROM for a phone that you don't actually have..
Well your doing a fantastic job.
So what are the odds we could port some version of Adobe Flash to this baby?

I mean (i Phone) did it and they call it Frash... Word has it that they originally stole it from Froyo and ported it. Why couldnt we do the same thing?

Sorry I said the "i" word.

No. There is no chance of this. Even if there was a chance of Trident wanting to port it, it would be absolutely pointless to jam Flash 10.1 onto any android 2.1 device. 2.2 is coming out for the ally, and unless abode blacklists the phone, you could install Flash then. Porting Flash to 2.1 would just be a waste of time, especially for a phone that would probably be unable to run Flash well at all, unless the ally gets overclocked.

Notsure Confused

Ok so heres a dumb question...

Now that I have Velocity on my Phone, what happens when the OTA Froyo rolls out? Do you just unroot it take the OTA and then re-root it via the one click method?
If you do this will that give you the old Superuser instead of the new cool one that came with your Velocity ROM?

Or do you need to go back to your original "OS" that is not Velocity then take the Froyo?

What do you think the proper thing would be to do here?

I'll base a future version of Velocity on Froyo as soon as I can get my hands on it. Then you can just install it like you did with this version.

Well Thats cool.

However the reason I ask that question is I have been setting up the preferences for this ROM Velocity, putting on my ringtones, redownloaded all my apps and just customized it like I use to have it before I Flashed the new ROM.

Is there a way around this?
I am lazy.... I didnt want to have to do it again for Froyo. LOL

I know probably a dumb question... Sorry Grass Hoppa is still learning.

And I'm guessing that Velocity version with 2.2 you're talking about will be 0.3? Judging by your signature you're still working on 0.2, and unless you're Linus Torvalds and you've compiled 2.2 yourself, 0.2 will be have Android 2.1, right?

A froyo build right now would be extremely buggy. Until LG slips up I wouldn't expect a froyo build that is very useable. I'm pretty sure .2 is going to be the same as 0.1.1 with bus fixes and possibly some new features.
