    OLD POST! LINKS DONT WORK. WILL FIX SOON

    I noticed many of the links around here are on low speed servers, Personally I fount it annoying. So I collected a whole bunch of links for various things and put them on my private server.

    I was able to Download at about 6MB/s.

    LG Ally Source Kernel

    Ally SDK (Includes Old Root Tools)

    AllyRR Tool

    Drellisdee's Rooted and Lite Custom Rom

    Ally V8 Stock ROM

    Ally 2.1 Stock Source Code

    Velocity Rom 0.1.1

    Feel Free to HotLink, and share these links. If any developer or creator would not like there product posted and shared here just let me know. The Links will be available all the time and there is no limits. You can download as many times as you want.

    I just wanted to try to help out the Ally scene.

    :)

    This might be a Good Sticky? But seriously if anyone has any downloads they want me to host let me know.

    Also If anyone here would like webhosting or FTP hosting tell me. (Free)

    Thank you for the reply, and while this is a little helpful, I guess I'm still not getting it. And one of the links (-[ROM] Velocity V0.1.1 | LG Ally | Android 2.1 | ERE27 | Stable ) within the link above is broken. Which is, of course, the one I'm the most interested in.

    I'm looking for Froyo. I'm looking for all the things that I've read about that I can get with a rooted device: faster downloads, longer battery life, dumping bloatwear. I just don't know where to find it and I don't speak computerease.

    I guess I was really just looking for something that is easier than typing in all kinds of code. I mean, the UA program was so easy to use for rooting. I guess I just expected there to be more "easy" programs to do all sorts of things on my rooted Ally, and I'm just not finding that to be the case.

    At the moment no stable froyo rom exists for the ally. The link you are referring to is a rom made by Trident, based off the stock 2.1 ally rom with a few modifications.

    Working link:
    http://androidforums.com/trident/157540-rom-velocity-v0-1-1-lg-ally-android-2-1-ere27-stable.html

    The first thing you can try that is a little more "simple" to get custom roms on your phone is use the AllyRR tool.

    Thread:
    http://androidforums.com/ally-all-things-root/148036-allyrr-root-recovery-tool-windows.html

    This will install a custom recovery on your phone (think an operating system you can run outside of android) which allows you to flash custom roms. It also lets you create nandroid backups.

    If that does not work correctly (I had issues getting it to work) you will need to install the recovery manually.

    Thanks so much for the response. If I have Titanium backup, do I need Nandroid backups?

    When I hear things like "you will need to install the recovery manually," OMG! What? What does that mean? (Noob, remember?)

    Well Titanium Backup is a great tool for removing/backing up applications on the phone. A nandroid backup is a little different.

    Nandroid is a tool used when in recovery mode to make a full backup of the phone. That includes the phone's boot image, system image, etc. (imagine taking the hard drive in your computer and making a duplicate of it. In the event one gets corrupted, you have a backup to restore from.)

    Nandroid backups are used in the event a bad rom is flashed, (example: testing an experimental rom) and the phone will not boot. From the recovery mode, a nandroid backup can be selected and the phone can be restored to a previous state.

    Recovery mode is used to perform back ups and flashing roms. On the stock ally, the recovery mode is locked down and inaccessible. A custom recovery needs to be flashed in the stock ones place to allow flashing of custom rom's.

    Think of it like this, the phone has various partitions on it (like a computer's hard drive). The operating system (android) is installed on one partition, a recovery mode is installed on the other. Using a custom recovery allows the user to operate the phone without running the operating system (think like a bios on a computer). This allows changes to be made and un-made to the android operating system, without risking "bricking" the phone, making it inoperable.

    Get it? :)

    I don't know why everyone insists on doing all of this stuff the hard way.

    Download Rom Manager from the market.
    Install/open it and hit flash recovery.
    If it force closes or doesn't work reopen the program and do it again.
    Once the recovery is flashed you are going to want to "backup rom"
    This insures you have a backup of the original rom.
    Then hit download rom.
    Velocity has the best/only rom on there.
    Wipe data/cache and make sure your system is backed up.

    ROM Manager will download the rom and prompt you for a reboot to install.

    The first boot of any rom is going to take longer than you are used to, just be patient.

    Personally, I prefer the 'hard' way. You learn more. And besides, I've found ROM Manager and Clockwork Recovery to be unreliable. Just my opinion.

    I personally took the long route too but you aren't throwing in all of the factors. The Ally is a lot of people first smartphone or android device and arent going to be willing to open a command prompt and input a buch of stuff they don't understand. Sometimes its just easier to send them down the shorter road.

    As for ROM Manager being unreliable, I had 1 issue when it first worked for the ally but it was updated rather quickly to fix that issue. What problems have you had with it?

    Learning certainly is cool, but I used Universal Androot and ROM Manager successfully, and this method could certainly be represented as well. I think this combination may pave the way for easier rooting and ROM flashing for those that don't get the "hard" process.

    Agreed. But if you have experience in the area the long way is better. The custom recovery is better than clockworkmods recovery

    Besides, I've learned that it's very hard to brick this phone. :p
    (First smartphone, so you know I'm gonna do stupid, stupid stuff with it.)

    Just ask for help with things you're not sure of. Common sense and all that.

    What's the difference in the recoveries?? I'm just wondering if it something noticable for the average root user?

    I have a rooted Eris now and I'm looking to root an Ally and for me simpler is better!

    just want to point this link out to anyone who wants to root their phone but not install a custom rom

    this is a "one-click" root ...you just download and install it then click "root" in the app ...also "unroot" available

    Did anyone notice that, when the focus in this thread shifted to which is easier/harder HarleyChick quietly disappeared? I think you scared her off. I was hoping to follow what she said and hopefully read of her success, as I am thinking about trying this myself. I do well when it comes to Windows PCs but Android is new to me and I also don't want to brick my only phone. But I am getting tired of waiting for Froyo which, I'll bet you a Caf-Pow, is never actually going to come for the Ally. There are so many new Android phones coming out I'll be surprised if these phone vendors remain focused on existing phones and their improvement.

    My biggest wish is to be able to run apps from the SD card. I don't suppose anyone has found a way to do that without rooting the phone yet?

    With that specific goal in mind, which rooting process would you suggest as the most stable and also least complex?
