    I tried out a few roms and have decided I don't want any of them the way they are so far. Bobz was okay but couldn't get it into recovery to flash gapps which I didn't know I needed til after I flashed. I booted into recovery but it did nothing but restart, so I tried moving the apk into the system and ended up bricking again. The collab rom was way too basic and I can't stand third party launchers like apex might as well have stock, but the aroma installer was nice. PG's Paranoid Android was my favorite so far but way too unstable. Looks like I'm sticking with my tricked out stock rom for a while.

    Development will get better when we don't have to rely on 2nd-init.

    I did that it just kept freezing up on lg logo then just restarted. It's all good I'm just going to stay focused on trying to help find a way to get this damn bootloader unlocked. Then if we do I'll start trying out some full roms.

    I was just messing around with my bricked phone with bobz in it. I turned it on and kept tapping the volume down rocker and it went into morning call is empty. Then i pulled out the battery and restarted it normally. It started the cyanogen mod bootloop again. How am I being able get a morning call and boot loop at the same time?
     
  7. I want your tricked out stock rom. I've come to the same conclusion.
     
  8. What all did you do your phone ? Could you provide a link? What firmware are you on? Maybe you could wipe your phone, do a backup, and post a link.

    Im on firmware F. All I've done is add jellybean transitions, crt animation off, I've removed only the necessary bloatware, deleted all ring tones..notifications..alarms I don't ever use, I have fully working Google Now for ICS, changed out charger sound, screen lock/unlock sounds, new shutdown and boot animations with power off and on sounds, I have the themed messaging..contacts/phone I made and released on this forum. Plus a few other personal tweaks, my rom is very unique to me so just tweak yours to your preferences..

    i doubt the bootloader will ever be unlocked at this rate tbh, we'll be stuck with 2nd init forever

    I'm not a total noob, but I'm not sure i understand what 2nd init means...

    Haven't rooted yet, but planning on it soon. Removing bloatware is always reason enough for me to root. I do like custom roms, but based on your conversation, think I'll stay with one if the stock roms, but let me get this straight- there's no recovery? Or what its it? I don't understand what 2nd init is...

    2nd init gives you recovery. theres an 2nd init app thats lets you install recovery to your device but the down side is that you can only access the recovery menu by the app

    With 2nd init. you can only download custom roms over the stock kernel. With a true recovery you can flash full roms with custom kernels. If you plan to remove bloatware be cautious, and I wouldn't remove all the bloatware that is "safe" to remove. Just because you CAN remove doesn't necessarily mean you SHOULD. A lot of folks end up having trouble with their phones that I never experience. I think this could be do to the fact I don't remove all bloatware just because it can be. If you really want to save system space delete useless ring tones and notifications from system/media/audio/ ringtones or notifications.

    No there never was. Sammyz thought he had it but it was a mistake...

    If we had an unlocked bootloader, the possibilities would be endless :)

    I don't do it just because i can, i do it because if i can't or don't use it, i don't want it!

    I understand I'm just saying some things work to assist other apps and phone features. So while some(not saying you) may think they don't use it and the fact that it won't brick by removing it it's fine to remove. Just because it won't shut your phone down doesn't mean it isn't needed is all I'm saying.

    Yea, i get that. Isn't there a post about which ones are safe to remove?
