    i'm on velocity. i've tried using the adb to output the file but it keeps giving errors so i managed to do the first one and copy paste it. no clue on your second one. for the third i turned the phone on airplane, turned wifi on, turned wifi off, turned airplane off... do you want it? and once again on the 4th i've got no clue. do you want me to upload them?

    Gotta go to work soon. should be back later tonight. if you want me to send them let me know with an email. i'll put em on my phone so i could email them.

    Well i did have trouble with the dialer closing after making a call. I also did not recieve a call when called from a landline. I did not have 3g. the UI is fantastic though! Clicking airplane mode would not put the phone into air plane mode until i got the dialer to force close itself. gapps didnt have gmail in it? i seem not to be getting any service 1x or evdo now. i have a nandroid backup. i will be back to test once the radio is a little better. i unforunately need my phone (calls and txts). Sorry. But this is a great project and has potential, i mean look how good velocity turned out? if it wasnt for velocity, i would have told verizon to shove it...thanks devs : gnm, trident, death2all110

    thats weird...i set dialer to Cdma/gsm Auto prl and it works fine now? of coursei just started it.

    I'm using build #7 and so far.No 3g icon, while in a call can't use the dialpad or hang up. Other than that I'm good.

    You should read ALL of the posts by GNM before attempting to install this ROM. In his second post GNM explains a fix to both of your problems:

    screen on and off animations are unchecked" befor i posted but i fixed it without even finding that. thanks for telling me i guess that i should go to bed already was up all night fixing the problems i was finding the major one was i didnt flash the rom right so i was at the boot screen over and over again.

    Im ah guess this project was shutdown or handed down to another ally developer but i would like to say it has potential.
    Not having a cellular radio isnt to bad when uve retired your device to a mobile pc which makes this firmware perfect for and being able to install all the latest apps on the ally.
    I played with it and tried debugging but with my knowledge of the sdk so far, i got no where cept for a few wtf moments. Hope to see this firmware continued or atleast integrated to another.

    Seriously, you guys need to be patient. GNM has taken a break from Android devlopment, and IMO, he deserves it. He's been working very hard on this, and he deserves alot more respect than this.

    Is there an optional kernel for CM7 so I can run Voodoo sound app? It's pretty fun running CM7 on my old Ally for test purposes. I can be a bit more experimental with it and it's pretty easy to get it back to stock if something goes awry!!!! Thanks guys!!!:cool:

    Hi...How exactly did you get CM7 on the Ally? I have been trying to figure out how. I am looking to get gingerbread 2.3 on my ally so i could stream netflix perfectly. It lags on 2.2 right now. Can you give me a detailed reply on how to do it successfully? My ally is already rooted with Velocity 1.1.

    Go to top of this thread and it gives you very specific instructions. Do it, it's really cool. I really dug Velocity since the beginning, but thought I'd try something new and waddaya know, it actually works quite nicely!!!!
    My ally isn't activated anymore, I just use it for testing and experimental purposes. I moved on to a Fascinate and it's pretty friggin' rad on that as well!!!!


    Flash this zip in recovery 1st
    cyanogen_aloha-ota-eng.getitnowmarketing-3.zip

    Then flash Gapps zip immediately after
    gapps-gb-20110503-signed.zip

    password if asked for it
    http://androidforums.com/attachment...78740-project-gretel-cm7-lg-ally-password.txt

    And BAM---You have CM7 runnin' on your Ally!!!!!!:eek:

    Are we gonna see any fresh, new action from project Gretel anytime in the future(near or far)? I've been running it for a few weeks on my old Ally and I gotta say it seems pretty solid!?!?
    No pressure, just wonderin'!!!

    I was able to put cm7 on my ally successfully but just trying to work out the bugs. Mostly the end call and dial pad. I will have to read through again to try to resolve. I saw the link for the patch...what exactly does that do to resolve any issues? Thanks cm7 crew.
