Here's a video involving that screen animation lock screen problem we were talking about earlier. It wasn't easy to explain.

Make a Nandroid backup on your recovery before you flash, which is one thing you should always do before flashing anything, so if you want to go back 2.2.1, you can easily recover to that Nandroid backup on the recovery.

NEW ISSUE FOUND!
Sometimes, settings refuse to save, they will check off, then when you leave, you'll notice that your settings didn't apply, so you go back and notice that your setting became unchecked, or all vice versa. This became a really annoying problem when it involved going into airplane mode and switching keyboards.

Here are some logcats I recorded earlier, I'll try and get those settings issues logged later.
These were logged with "adb -d logcat" If there are any other logging commands and what they do, let me know, I only know that one, and "adb logcat -b radio" for networking.

Running the Camera.
cameralog.txt

Locking and Unlocking the device a few times, for the screen animation issue.
animation2.txt

That's all I could get you for now. Maybe you'll catch other issues I haven't found when using the phone alone in those logs. If you happen to get another testing build compiled BobZhome, keep us all updated!

This is great news.

Like others, I'm going to wait until the camera works. I'm happy with disabling animation until that issue is worked out, but a working camera is unfortunately a must for me.

I've literally been looking at every LG Vortex forum, every day for the last 6 months, and it's wonderful to finally get some more positive updates to this loathsome, despicable, embarrassing phone. I've been hoping that one day, either I'll get a new phone, or someone, like you guys, will make the LG Vortex, (again, an embarrassing piece of mobile trash, to be avoided by respectable consumers at all costs) somewhat decent.

Efforts to turn this phone from the lowest Android common denominator to something usable are heroic. Cheers for that, and as soon as I can afford to, donations are in order.

PS: "Your warranty is now void." Our warranty was void when we got this piece of tripe. With updates like these, the phone now has some value.

Just by using the phone after flashing, for the ROM's first initial release, it's definitely an improvement! Plus, the battery life also had an outstanding performance! After 11h 35m 18s, the battery was at 13% remaining!

I also performed a full benchmark with Quadrant Standard and I gotta say, I was pretty impressed because of the fact that the device wasn't even overclocked!



Way back with the old Breakneck Rom, I ran the device somewhere around 750~800MHz and the benchmark number was around 650! If we could get this kernel overclocked to that same number (I can't get it above 600MHz for some reason), I think we'll be able to break 1000 points!

I think the Vortex is a great phone, people just don't know it's full potential. That's what we're trying to achieve here.

Please re-read! I fixed a typo that would have been dangerous if followed!

Download the zip file that's attached to this post, extract the build.prop file to the root of your SDcard, then use either RootExplorer or ADB to replace the build.prop file already in the /system/ folder in the phone, then change the permissions to rw-r--r-- on the new one. Once you've done that, reboot your Vortex, and you should have signal.

What You'll Notice: When you get your signal, the Roaming indicator will be stuck, but 3G and Call and Texting strength will be shown in the notification bar and they both work. That's what the "Roaming Indicator" bug BobZhome was referring to in the topic's opening post.

Notsure

Ok here is a list of my current issues that hopefully will help.

1)Tried installing swype and it worked once and then after a reboot, force closes over and over . (current solution is i purchased slide-it keyboard)

2) MAJOR ISSUE -phone thinks it has a keyboard. When dialing *228 to update roaming or reprogram i get NO DIAL PAD, there are settings for physical keyboard so that's a dead give away that we have an issue here.

3) random force closes (SPB Shell[legit copy], Gallery, Handcent, Messaging[settings page]) - not all the time just randomly

4) cant overclock this kernel (would be nice to go up to 800mhz) or install AOSP Helper(used by JuiceDefender Ultimate)

5) known issues (camera screen animations)

Now for the GOOD

Phone seems quick, battery life is better, major potential

Rooted stock rom- androidforums.com/vortex-all-things-root/261820-rooted-2-2-1-update
Stock recovery- mediafire.com/?i1891y3o1uyunhu]recovery-dump-v.img.zip

Absolutely love this rom, in the OP you said you used the stock kernel will the OC kernel that worked with 2.2 also work with this rom?

1) make sure the keyboard is on phone, and NOT on sdcard
2) will be fixed in next build...probably this weekend
3) again make sure system & important apps are on phone
4) OC will be in next build
5a) I'm going to use different drives in next build to see if it helps the animations.
5b) A logcat output from the mediaserver process when you try to use the camera would help pinpoint the problem.

I installed this today on my phone and was overall very impressed. The ONE thing that is bumming me out is that Netflix won't play without lagging the sound behind the image. The latest version runs perfectly well on Android 2.2.2 even without overclocking but not in BLARFBREAD (it needed a name). I even tried the oc kernel by getitnowmarketing which did OC but did not help Netflix at all.

Otherwise, I'm very impressed and expect to see even greater results in the future. Thanks!

Well, as cool as it was to be running CM7, I had to go back to my rooted stock 2.2.2 today. Lockscreen would NOT unblank for me, and I ran into several apps which I use most frequently that either would not install or force-closed when I tried to run them. Since this is a work-in-progress and I depend on my Vortex on a day to day basis, I'll wait a bit and let things develop a bit further.

Thanks for all the hard work, BobZhome. I'll stay tuned for further developments!

Updated OP with new build
I'm not sure anything has been fixed/improved, since I don't own this phone to test on.
Good feedback is very welcomed!

Thanks for the feed back, either OC is to high or it didn't like the drivers.

Can you set it up to boot at 600 Mhz but allow the user to change it after boot with CPU Master or a similar app? That's how mine was set up with the breakneck rom and it worked great.

Sorry for the mistake!

It still didn't get past the LG Logo, but I actually managed to get it to boot by using getitnowmarketing's overclocked kernel, and it looks great, camera still doesn't work, but I don't have a roaming indicator as far as I can tell

Edit: The display seems to not be turning back on correctly still, also the overclocking options don't seem to work in the settings menu

Oh, is the screen animations that weren't working the homescreen transitions or something else? they work fine for me now
edit again: i found that if you turn the screen-on and screen-off animations off it fixes the lock screen display problem, so maybe that's what was meant by screen animations not working. also, using cpu master I was able to overclock successfully

Hav not tried the new build because of the issues above, i need my phone

also whenever i do a nand backup, restoring ALWAYS fails (dont know why nothing to do with this anyway)

OK as far as i can tell the cpu freq sounds like it is set too high at boot, not sure. screen animations seem to be fixed and the roaming indicator is off.

Someone running this build please dial *228 and tell me if you get a number pad and are able to input while on the call.

no keyboard when in a *228 call, however I was able to set long hold on the menu button to toggle the soft keyboard and it works fine. Regular calls show the dailpad icon. Basically with some tweaking it runs almost perfectly except the camera

edit: mobile data doesn't seem to be working either

Thanks for the feedback!
Right now for me the important thing is to get the phone booted with my kernel.
Can someone grab me the config.gz file and post it somewhere?
It's located in /proc/config.gz

This is what's on mine, although I overwote the kernel so I don't know if it's different?
config.gz

Thanks but that was from the kernel you flashed...I need the one from the stock ROM.

Updated OP with new build.
Let's cross our fingers on this booting

This one gets to the second LG logo, I believe it's the boot animation. Doesn't ever boot though

Thanks for the file!

Updated OP with new build...I changed my config file to match as closely to the stock one that geofferey provided. I feel good that this will boot...so I named this kernel version 1

The kernel works, however the stock camera drivers cause it to hang during boot. I replaced them with the drivers you had before you reverted to stock, and it booted, but the camera still doesn't work. hope that helps!

Thanks for testing!
I know where to go from here...I was blind for a bit there...It's not easy doing this with no phone to test on.
I'll have a bootable build in a couple of days...I have to do some work on another phone.

Hopefully the AMI304 changes help the screen issue.

That's good to here...
Have any of the following:
Screen Animations
Camera
Roaming Indicator
working?
Did I break anything else?

Thanks for the feedback!

I recently today flashed the 11/3 rom to my vortex and I can't seem to get passed the boot animation. It moves for a little while and then freezes. Any thoughts on this?

If it doesn't boot after 10 minutes > Pull the battery for 20 seconds > Put back battery and start phone > If it still doesn't boot up after 10 minutes > Pull battery again for 20 seconds > Put back battery and boot into recovery > be sure to wipe/format everything EXCEPT SDcard > re-flash ROM
