    Disclaimer: YOUR WARRANTY IS NOW VOID I am NOT responsible for any Physical or Software damage you cause to your device. If you are not familiar with anything below, I'd suggest that you do some research elsewhere to better understand before you attempt anything on your device.

    You must be running Software Version ZV5. If you have a US Cellular F7 then this requirement does not apply to you.
    You must be running the F7's CWM and not 2nd Init recovery

    ● Download zip to your sdcard
    ● Great time to make a backup so DO IT
    ● Install the ROM
    ● Wipe data & cache *Not Required but for the best performance i suggest you do it*
    ● Reboot

    Whats not working???
    You tell me, wipe data and test your issue before reporting your problem to me.

    My 3G/4G isn't working correctly what do i do??

    Go to Settings->System Updates and select Update PRL and then when that's done select Update Profile as well. When its done reboot your phone and 3G/4G should be working again.

    How do i Overclock my Optimus F7?

    Open the Settings app then find and select "Kernel Tweaks". Once the Simplicity Control app Opens, slide the toogle all the way to the right to OC up to 1.7ghz. you can also mess around with what governors you want and how it will affect your phone in performance/battery.. *Google it*

    How do i Update via OTA?

    When you get the OTA notification go ahead and have it download the update. Once its done the app will ask you if you want to reboot and install it. DO NOT allow it to reboot your phone into cwm cause as we all know, it will wipe your data. So when the download is finished what you need to do is power off your phone and manually boot into cwm using the botton method. Then navigate to the OTA Update folder select the zip and install.

    How do i enable the tethering feature?
    Open Portable Wi-Fi Hotspot app and set your desired settings. Next open the Wireless Tether App and tap on the big green Wi-Fi icon, after that you can connect any wireless device to your phone.

    How do i know Swap is working correctly?
    How do you know if its working? Open Es File Explorer and navigate to /Cache if you see a swap folder inside then swap is working and you have an extra 500 mb of ram regardless of what any task manager says. If you look at the image below, the line that's starts with "Mem" is the actual amount of ram this phone comes with 793mb and at the time i had used up 723mb of it leaving 70mb of it free. If you look below that and look at the line that starts with "Swap" the amount of 499 *Basically 500mb* it used 61mb and 438Mb of it was free.

    Hey, Chevan. So, what's the idea exactly? It looks stock from the screen shots. Besides the bloat removal.... What can we expect from this ROM? Plans, ideas, etc?
    I look forward to this, man!

    Gonna keep it simple for now. I plan to release it this coming week sometime after Christmas. Right now I'm just trying to minimize as much thing as I can without breaking anything. That will give you even better speeds on stock. In the future I will be adding some more features but I don't have any layout of plans. I've already started enabling some features that lg has disabled in our system, Might do a theme too. I haven't done a theme since my last Megatron ROM which was over the summer lol.

    Can you tell I've been hard at work? ;) hoping to release this baby sometime before January ends. Got A LOT of big changes enabled already and I plan to go crazy with theme. I'm thinking KitKat UI? uploadfromtaptalk1389999327145.jpg uploadfromtaptalk1389999347069.jpg

    First I just wanna say thanks for putting in the work to create this rom. I believe you did some work on my previous phone the Prevail. I cant wait til this is released.

    Will you also be putting up an apps package of the apps you take out, that we could download, delete what apps we dont want, and then install the zip file via CWM? Just asking:rolleyes:

    I might just skip the update all together and wait for the rom

    A requirement to install the ROM is that you have to be running ZV5. Can't be running a higher version on the system and have a lower version on your partitions;)

    I'm trying to get a fix. Trying literally everything I can but it just won't budge, not stopping until I get it to be a little bit better though.

    Well maybe the GPS chip itself maybe of bad news, it could be a hardware issue still not fixed
