    I made a post about that here, but doesn't seem like anyone cares. lol

    See post here... This would be the easiest way without ADB to post a system pull. ;)

    Would be easier to tell you this if you had PMs enabled but eh... lol :)

    lol You keep telling me that... I don't need a system pull. I'm not working on this phone.

    I'm only letting them know that they'll have to be proactive if they want a rom for a phone that is not getting any attention. Like posting a system pull and going around politely asking devs or chefs if they can make a rom for the device.

    Just sayin :rolleyes:

    who will have to be proactive???

    i really want a room on this phone lol almost no root apps work like screencast, sixaxis, or hotspot tethering


    and I'm confused on that link. isn't that just for the recovery? those two roms are for the LG spirit.

    edit.

    oh ok where do I get those three files and how do I upload them when flashing one of those two roms?

    do you need adb to do this?

    am I supposed make a back up, take those files you stated out of the back up, flash the rom, then upload those files through my recovery?

    if so will they already be zipped files?

    Those roms you see are in my signature, they're not to install on this phone. Signatures are so you can show your likes, hobbies, projects, charity, or just about anything that interests you within site rules.

    As I said before, you do not need ADB nor do you need to flash anything.

    Simply go into recovery and make a backup. Once the backup is done, plug your phone to PC and copy the 3 files I mentioned. The one labeled system.ext4.tar will be pretty big in size. If your using a touch recovery then it will be labeled system.ext4.tar.a.

    Now you can upload the files to google drive which is free and I find it's the most reliable. Once you post your links for download, make sure to check that they are working.

    I was working on a simple rom to enable basic functions but with that recovery it checks for the model the rom is built for and its not this phone, anyway I keep getting error code 7 when flashing my rom, i tried to get a different recovery but there are no others... If someone would be willing to help I could probably get it finished.

    The issue is not with the recovery. You have to edit the updater-script correctly. Until the script is properly written, no roms will flash.

    Im pretty sure the script is correct because for the most part I used android kitchen to make the rom, then added a few things myself

    Not trying to argue with you, but I've made scripts and roms a few times and I can tell you for sure that kitchen does not generate a fully working script. It still needs to be edited.

    Im assuming that your talking about the line that specifies the phone the rom is for? I looked for that and couldnt find it. Also it would make it easier if it was in lines, its not. It's just one big paragraph if you will.

    If only i knew how to develop :(

    Why doesn't the stock rooted rom have support for sixaxis, wifi tether, or screen cast??

    And is there any chance you think mhl will work with this phone on a different rom.
    Cus i saw dev>graphics>hdmi

    @sammyz

    Can you post that system pull you have?

    The system pull a few posts up gives me a corrupt error when I extract it.

    If I get the system pull I can write the edify script and add support for this device to kitchen so these guys can make their roms.
