    This ROM is deodexed!! This is not a bad thing but if you do not want a deodexed ROM Do Not Download


    VERSION 22 IS OUT NOW, CLICK HERE TO GO TO THREAD

    This ROM is based on the V7 update by xclusive36.

    Here is what is working:
    Everything.

    Here is what is not working:

    You tell me, I am currently testing now.

    Here is what is removed from the ROM:

    • LG Bloatware (Except what is required by the ROM to work)
    • Sprint crapware (e.g. Connections optimizer, VVM - Visual Voicemail, and system app installer)
    • Virgin Mobile Application Downloader (When the phone first activates it downloads a bunch of crappy themes, and unneeded files.)
    • Dictionary
    • Useless google play stuff (Books, Play Games, etc. Google play is still installed with google services framework)
    • LGFOTA.APK removed (Possible no more OTA Notifications?)
    • LGUSMMS.APK - (LG MMS APK)
    • Q-Slide and Q-slide notification floater.
    • Any other bloat I didn't like or need
    Here is what was added to the ROM:

    • SuperSU (Added by xclusive36)
    • CM Browser (Not CyanogenMod, it is CheatahMobile)(This is a lightweight (1.5MB) browser)
    • ES File Explorer
    • WiFi Hotspot hack by emkeene :D
    • AdAway Added for Ad blocking power!! ;)
    • Custom Boot Animation and Sound
    • ChompSMS
    • Apex Launcher
    • Android Terminal Emulator
    • init.d emulator(sandix)
    • SDCard Swapper Fx3 (Sandix)
    • OpenOTA (Sandix)
    • Built in SD Card Swapping!
    • Overclock!! MAX: 1.8GHz (Recommended: 1.2GHz-1.4GHz with ondemand governor and noop schedular)(Thanks to robaho for the Overclock Kernel Go send him some love for his amazing work!)


    This ROM is a ~265MB Download, and leaves you with over 1GB of usable space for apps and downloads BEFORE google runs updates in the background (which happens almost immediately after getting a network connection. . I know this is not the best, but I slimmed it down literally all the way without losing too much of the LG Stock feel, and including a AOSP/Google experience to it.


    Download:
    AdvancedStock7 - Version 20 (Fixes Update Profile/ PRL issues from previous version)

    ** By downloading this ROM you agree that anything that happens to the device, be it negative or positive, is your own fault.

    ChompSMS MMS Settings:

    MMSC: http://mmsc.vmobl.com:8088/mms?
    MMS Proxy: 205.239.233.136
    MMS Port: 81

    Getting rid of the "Update Device" Error on bootup(Might not work?):

    1. After booting up, login to the play store
    2. Click this link on your phone, (Or install from Play store on Computer using googles Install OTA service)
    3. Find "Update Device" in the list
    4. Disable both check boxes.
    5. Reboot phone and the Error should be gone.
    6. Reverse these instructions to do the PRL/Profile updates if needed.
    Supplemental Packs & REMOVED apks (pretty much all of them.:
    These supplemental packs include any removed apk files for you to install if you need or want them (Wouldn't see why, but I know some of you will ask)
    LG_SUPPLEMENTAL_PACK2.zip (Includes all LG, Sprint, and Virgin Mobile Applications that where removed.)

    Any questions let me know!

    Dirty Install(If you want to keep your apps):
    **NOTE: DIRTY INSTALL ONLY IF YOU ALREADY HAVE A PREVIOUS VERSION INSTALLED!!!!!!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!


    1. Download to internal or External SD Card.
    2. Reboot into CWM (HAS TO BE THE TOUCH BASED ONE)
    3. Format Cache and Dalvik Cache
    4. Install Zip
    5. It will reboot on it's own
    6. Once it boots, let it sit for about 5-10 minutes to configure apps, etc.
    7. Reboot once more (So profile updates will work)
    8. Before doing anything, go to settings -> System Updates -> Update Profile
    9. Reboot
    10. Then go to Settings -> System Updates -> Update PRL
    11. Reboot Once more
    12. Add Google Account information
    13. Enjoy the ROM!

    Steps to do an activation:

    1. Make sure the ESN AND IMEI number are on your Virgin Mobile Account
    2. Turn the phone on
    3. goto settings
    4. goto activate device
    5. let it fail out and repeat step 4 two more times
    6. then update PRL and Profile
    If the above does not work, flash a completely unmodified stock rom then do the following:

    1. Make sure the ESN AND IMEI number are on your Virgin Mobile Account
    2. Turn the phone on
    3. goto settings
    4. goto activate device
    5. let it activate and then reboot
    6. verify that you can make calls, SMS, and got data.
    7. Flash AdvancedStock7, making sure to wipe data, cache, and dalvik cache
    8. Once AS7 is booted, go to settings, System Updates, and update the PRL and Profile, then reboot. You should now have SMS, calls and Data working.

    Some things to note:


    • Some options in the settings will crash, this is normal as I removed the apk file they relate to.
    • Sprint Connection manager is removed so that option will not work.
    • Lockscreen settings will not work (There are apps on google play to mess with lock screen settings)
    • I did not add the swap SD Card script from androidguy1991. This is because that script would have been complicated to add to the ROM zip, you can still add it though if you feel you need it.
    • Every time the phone boots up, you will get a force close error with LG Updates, this is normal as I removed LG Update from this ROM.

    Things to come:


    • Possible upgrade to V8 of the Virgin Mobile LG Stock ROM.
    Using the init.d emulator:

    1. On boot, Grant Uninit.d root access, this allows it to make the proper folders and files for init.d emulation.
    2. under /storage/sdcard0/init.d put all the scripts you want to run following alphabetical patterns for priority on boot. (1_FirstScript, 2_SecondScript, etc.)
    3. reboot and watch your scripts run without any effort!
    Let me know how the init.d emulator works for you if you use it!

    Looks like I found a bug in Version 1 :( Any one having an issue where when you reboot, you lose your homescreen settings?

    EDIT: Updated ROM in an attempt to fix the bug with previous bug.

    I'm thinking we need to find a way to remove the LG System UI, anyone know how to do that?

    I'm tempted to try this, it looks really good.

    Does MMS send and receive work with 8SMS when on 4G? I remember awhile back trying to ditch the stock lg messaging app but there was weirdness with 3rd party messaging apps when on 4G (3G was fine though); it seems that others had similar issues too.

    Thanks!

    I am not sure as I am at work, and I do not get 4G there, BUT I believe there is an option to force MMS to download through 3G. I may be wrong on that.

    You could always reinstall LGUSMss.apk (Which I can PM you if you do have issues with MMS.)

    EDIT: I can confirm MMS has issues in 8SMS. I am looking for a solution now.

    Although, I tried it when 8SMS was a userspace application (not systemspace application like version 4 has) so I want someone to test V4 for me and let me know if it has issues.

    OP NOTICE: I just added a Supplemental APK Pack, it has a suprise/twist I think you will LOVE!!!

    **HINT: The Aroma of this Pack is bittersweet.

    **Note: The Pack does have a graphical glitch where the screen turns a shade of blue, that is normal for now.
