question about this part

"You must wipe your data, cache, and dalvik cache upon flashing, otherwise you will have issues.
-I recommended using ROM Manager and ClockworkMod Recovery. "

do you have a step by step on this part to make sure we get it right? or will using CWMR in Rom Manager take care of it automatically?

also, all i need is to leave the stock Facebook app alone to make this complete, the one you get from the market is junk, thats the one thing LG got right, the Facebook app on the stock ROM is much much much better

can you give me instructions on how to leave just that one part alone? or how to add it back in afterwards maybe?

thanks

Yo, would letting ROM Manager install CMRecovery when I already have the GNM recovery image mess anything up, or is CM set up to remove it?

Just check the "wipe data/cache" field when installing with ROM Manager.

To get the Socialite (LG Facebook app) back, just install this .apk file after you install the ROM.

It's set up to flash over the GNM image. You'll be just fine.

It is fast and more responsive. Boot animation is very nice. Love the theme. Love the optional scripts. Gmail notifications work.

Overall a very very impressive job and thanks for the ROM.

I am new to this so I may be doing something wrong. I have ROM manager and selected the velocity rom from the list. After downloading it goes through the whole thing of erasing cache yada yada then the phone reboots. When it comes back on it appears that velocity has not taken. When I go back into ROM manager it says recovery failure and asks me to input one of three options. ANy help would be greatly appreciated. Thx

dude i got you covered on the monster thanks for this Trident. This is amazing and I love it. The only thing is sometimes the txt in the On-Going section of the notifications is black which blends too much with black background. The only app so far i have seen that doesnt do it is Advanced Task Killer but other than that its perfect! Thank you for putting in the time and effort.

i dont want the "Socialite" app

i want to stock ROM Facebook app, they are two separate apps

the one that is in the Market sucks badly, all it does is redirect you to the web page in your browser, the stock ROM Facebook app actually manages things in it's own GUI....please reconsider, thanks

The stock one on the phone is a previous version, the one from the market is an update with a revamped UI.

Ok so I downloaded V0.2 from Rom Manager, checked the clear cache and data box, and it rebooted, when it came back up after installing, it did the LG screen, then it did the static verizon logo, after that the old android eye came up then it just kept saying force close everything. Sorry application Voice Search (com.android.inputmethod.voice), Maps (com.google.android apps.maps:friendservice), Setup Wizard (com.android.setupwizard), The process com.android.phone, com.google.process.gapps, and android.process.acore have all stopped unexpectedly and now I can't to a dang thing. I can't even get to the recovery screen by pressing the home and end buttons from a powered off state. I hope you know some cool trick or else I guess I'm the proud owner of brick.

You have to press the call, menu, and end buttons. Try that.

Trident,

Great work man. This is a much needed ROM for the Ally. Finally the phone runs more like a high range device. Dont feel like the Ally is behind so much now! Thanks for the time/effort you put into this for us!

Just tried out the multitouch keyboard, and the ampersand key is messed up. Other than that, another great Velocity release.

Also, would it be possible to get a metamorph file for the entire ROM? I would love to 100% theme this beauty out.

try clearing your cache + data + dalvik cache then reinstalling the rom

odd, i'd just do a direct download, put it on the root of your sd card, and boot into recovery by holding the call, menu, and end buttons, then try installing that way after clearing your cache, data, and dalvik cache

I had the same thing happen and what I did was freak out! I just couldn't believe that I did something wrong or that I bricked my phone. i couldn't even remember how to get in to the recovery menu! I posted almost exactly what you did, all the apps and coms that had forced closed. Trident was all over it though and helped me remember what I already knew (press call, menu, and end buttons at the same time). After that I was able to recover to the stock rom (always make a back-up, mine's on a separate sd card), copied the V0.2 to my sd card, went into Rom Manager, reflashed Clockwork Recovery Mod and selected "reboot into Recovery". Once it did I went through and wiped everything, data/facory reset, cache partition, went into advanced and wiped dalvik cache, hell i even wiped the battery stats (just for good measure)! once done I selected reboot recovery, again for good measure, and chose "install zip from sdcard". "Choose zip from sdcard" and selected "velocity_0.2_release.zip". After it installed everything was A-OK!!! I love this rom!!! I think where I screwed up was by trying to do just the Rom Manager install rather than from the recovery menu, mostly because I think it doesn't clear all the data and caches, specifically the dalvik cache, properly. I hope this helps you out because this rom is "awesomazing"!! All I ask is that when you get it up and going toss Trident a bone for all his hard work! The man likes Redbull and no matter where you go, they still want cash for'em! Thank you's are great but they don't buy an awful lot of Redbull these days! I get paid on Friday at about 3 AM (california banking), so you can bet I'm donating at 3:01 AM!! Thank you again Trident for the ROM and for the steadying voice in my time of distress!!

So far a couple of times the home screen icons have been displaying 1.5 times (translation: it shows the clickable icon, and then the whitespace in between lines shows the top half of the shortcut again).
After 5 minutes or so each time, the home screen forced closed and fixed it.

I second this question: I type in "office" and then hit the "enter" key. It shows my options as -rm to remove and -cp to restore.

I type "rm" and then "enter" and it gives me a line that says:
"rm [-rR] <target>"

Is that what's it's supposed to say? Now what? Office isn't removed...

You'll have to reflash the ROM. I don't have the Velocity theme in an .zip.

Just was playing around today and noticed that the onscreen keyboard doesn't respond when in a think free office word document. The keyboard itself works... exactly like a computer keyboard (for instance, to capitalize a letter you have to hold the caps key while pressing the letter). It's not like a huge deal, but just something I noticed. It's so fast though......... so fast!
