    [ROM] GB-CMod7-Beta

    Well at long last it's finally here. I didn't make this Rom, I only ported it for use on our device! Simply place this on your sdcard, WIPE!, and flash. On first boot be sure to skip past the setup and go to settings > cmod settings > display, and disable the screen on and off animations. I hope you all enjoy. Report bugs in this thread.

    Works:
    All hardware! (I'm not sure about bluetooth because i dont have any bluetooth devices to test it)

    Thank you to asadullah, joneidy, and andyo70 for all the work they do for the community and for making this possible. And of course thanks go out to the cm7 guys!


    Enjoy.

    Zip Updated!
    GingerbreadCM7 ported for Optimus M v0.1
    Download

    Update:
    A2SD support has been added. You will need an ext3 partition on your sdcard. BACKUP YOUR STUFF BEFORE YOU CREATE IT! Can be created using joneidy's custom recovery. After you do this and flash the rom your apps will be installed to /sd-ext/ It will not show your internal memory as being larger but I can assure you you will use about 90% less of your internal memory. Have fun!

    Banner Fixed
    USB Mass Storage mod Fixed
    GPS is improved but still needs work(after you flash the rom, update maps and then go to manage apps and clear data and cache for maps)


    After first boot reboot into recovery and flash this to get mms working.
    MMS FIX PATCH: http://db.tt/6wxyYtV
    Thanks to endoki over at xda because I ripped apart his metroff for the ascend to make this patch.

    If I flash to this, will it break the custom recovery menu for 2.2.1?

    Bluetooth working fine with my A2DP headphones.

    edit: in case you didn't notice (although I'm sure you did) trying to connect via USB for mass storage mode unmounts my SD card. Could that be why it's failing?

    srry for sounding newbish but what is the benefits of this rom?
     
  14. the main benefits of this rom are first and foremost,this ROM is running Gingerbread,the newest version of android..second of all CM7 is the most customizable rom out there.for people that like to have their phone FULLY customized,this rom is for you..there are a few bugs right now cuz its a beta,BUT i could care less.. point is,when it comes to flashing a new rom,it doesnt get any better than Cyanogenmod.this is all MY opinion these are not facts..lol well they could be,but im not saying they are :)
     
  15. i installed ADOBE 10.3 but its not working..i couldnt find the app on the android market for i got it off APPLANET..coulkd you help me out? lol where did you download it from??

    No it is the same kernel. We still need some newer kernel source from LG. I played around with adding an oc kernel from the optimistic v but I couldn't get the touch screen to work

    Is anyone having a problem with the unlock screen? When I try to unlock my phone the screen stays black, but lights up a bit. I turned off the animations.

    It stopped acting up for some reason, but touching the screen afterwards does work. Thanks
