    Please help those of us who are less phone techie, but very interested....what exactly is Gretel and how will it improve the Ally? Does it upgrade the o/s to 2.4.3 (Gingerbread)? What features does Gingerbread have that we can't live without? :)

    It's CyanogenMod 7, being ported to the LG Ally. Google it...better yet,
    Let me google that for you

    Sorry, I'm just a bit of a smart a$$ at times. :)

    Hey, no problem. I usually google everything before I ask. Don't know why I didn't this time. But it raises another question - probably a dumb one, but what the hell. I'm running Velocity, which I'm very happy with because of the hugely improved performance. Would CyanogenMod replace Velocity if I installed it? Or run alongside it?

    yes you can flash this like velocity. you must do a FULL WIPE flash the ROM then gapps. this is an ENTIRE new ROM and will completely replace velocity. most if the improvements of Gingerbread (2.3) that i want are UI stuff. there are others but its nothing real big like apps to sd from 2.1 to 2.2. but listen this ROM is not like velocity in that its not the finished product. look at the thread linked in the 1st post. There are LOTS of bugs and the sms and phone calls have been screwy. This release is to test it and fix bugs. not for everyone to just throw on, especially if you guys already have so many question. by no means am i saying you cant or anything like that. just if you do decide that you are aware and first you read all of getitnowmarketing's posts' in the thread linked up top here.

    Excuse my language, but... Holy shit.

    I never thought I would see the day.

    Also, do my eyes deceive me, or is this being built off of Gingerbread?? Will the Ally be seeing an official 2.3 upgrade sometime, or is this all extensive work by a dev team, non-LG supported?

    edit-
    To throw my support in, as soon as I get the D3 upon release, I will dedicate my LG Ally to testing this rom. However, I won't be able to do any SMS/Call/3G stuff, because it will not be activated. I will only be able to test functionality of the camera and anything that I can do on only WiFi... Not really much, but I assume all help is appreciated. :)

    Thanks, King. Very helpful. Yes, I totally understood from reading the dev thread earlier that this ROM is in alpha, and I'm in no position to test. I'll be following it with interest though.

    This is from the DEV's only. The Ally will probably never see an official update to 2.3. It wouldn't be any benefit for them to update the OS beyond what it is now. The hardware is seriously lacking the performance needed for more updates anyway. It is awesome that there is a CM 2.3 ROM though. :)

    If you don't mind me asking, why are you still on 2.1?
    V1.1 on 2.2 is so much better than V0.4

    There were some apps that would not work on 2.2.2, in particular sms backup. I did some comparisons on preformance. I'm running getitnowmarketing's OC kernel, but at 600MHz there wasn't that big of a difference. On 2.2.1 at 600MHz, my Quadrant score was 453 and linpack was 7.3. On 2.1update1 with GNM's kernel at 600 MHz, Quadrant was 575 and Linpack was 6.8.

    If it does, just use Barnacle. It seems to still be working for people who can't use the Wireless Tether app.

    Then again, the Wireless Tether we have was custom built for Velocity, and isn't the one that was available on the market. The one from the market is the one that was affected.

    Native built-in in the setting menu wifi tether and usb tether both work on cm7 no extra apps needed and of course free and unlimited.

    This is amazing. You guys are the best. Don't get discouraged by the self deserving twerps that cry about things not working correctly. There will always be really stupid child like people that are too idiotic to be gracious when things are being done for them. 99% of us really appreciate the work you guys do here and understand that everything comes at a price. Keep up the good work!
