    So I've been trying to decipher this fancy talk and would love some quick help..

    I finally decided to go with a custom ROM and since there's no stable CM10 Number Two looks like the best bet. With this Metro VV5 crap am I clear to download it and port it over or should I wait for an updated version that takes the VV5 into account?

    Thanks!

    #2 ROM will not work on vv5, ldrifta is actually working on getting it ported over so that we can enjoy taking our #2 on vv5 :D So in short I would recommend that you wait until he gets it worked out, however with more testers im sure this will go much faster. Oh and ldrifta now has his lady/wifey's old connect so he can test it out now something he was not able to do a week ago so a BIG thank you goes out to his wifey :D

    I'll check back later then!

    How is the battery life with this ROM? I'm debloated and don't really use my phone all that much but the stock battery lasts me around 4 hours max. I've had to buy a big replacement one that makes it through the day with about 30% left in the tank but I'm essentially carrying a brick in my pocket..

    I had it done two nights ago I just didn't know what to do with it but It put my phone in fastboot mode when I tested it I tried to get it to boot through the fastboot command prompt umm I played with it for a while ttryin different fastboot commands since I had never really played with it (fastboot) and i tried different boot images from my backup for the hell of it um and it didn't boot system.. hell I wasn't even sure if it was even supposed to go into fastboot mode had no idea what to expect. . I ended up having to do Sammyz unbrick method to get out fastboot... . that's my story and I'm sticking to it

    The only other way is emergency mode.

    other than that not really.

    hope you get this booting soon bro.

    Hold down the two volume buttons and the power button it will prompt you to do a "factory reset" but its not really factory reset if you have CWM installed after you confirm it will go into CWM

    I just rooted my vv5 and then installed rom manager and inside of that I flashed cwm. Can you not get it to work? That is very strange, you could try pushing it to your phone from your pc... :) I have the pc file if you need it, it installs cwm touch.

    Haha, yeah man. I saw the things this Rom has, But I like a Rom that has no bloat, As long as you keep swype :p And I like your choice in colors. I know your a busy guy thats why we gotta be patient and wait till you have time. :)

    This phone doesnt do well if the radios are on :\
