This ROM is deodexed!! This is not a bad thing but if you do not want a deodexed ROM Do Not Download This ROM is based on the V8 update by xclusive36. Notes on this ROM: I do not have this phone anymore, so my debugging process is limited, but I wanted to get you guys the V8 update before I just dropped off the face of this subforum. (Which I can't just leave you guys hanging, now can't I) I will be working on this from a distance, meaning I will try to push out a couple more updates to fix this ROM, but I cannot promise anything. This ROM will not have OTA, whether it be my OpenOTA, or LG OTA. This is because I do not have time to worry about OTA. I will however update this thread every so often. Expect some bugs since I cannot flash this to a fx3 (I do not have one) Here is what is working: Everything. (as far as I know) Here is what is not working: You tell me. 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) ES File Explorer 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) Built in SD Card Swapping! This ROM is a ~294MB Download, and leaves you with just under 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: http://www.mediafire.com/?p6783r8wf4aiw (Initial Release of AS8, But it is AdvancedStock Version 22.) ** 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: 188.8.131.52 MMS Port: 81 Getting rid of the "Update Device" Error on bootup(Might not work?): After booting up, login to the play store Click this link on your phone, (Or install from Play store on Computer using googles Install OTA service) Find "Update Device" in the list Disable both check boxes. Reboot phone and the Error should be gone. Reverse these instructions to do the PRL/Profile updates if needed. To Install: Download to internal or External SD Card. Reboot into CWM (HAS TO BE THE TOUCH BASED ONE) Format Cache Format - Factory Data Reset Install Zip It will reboot on it's own Once it boots, let it sit for about 5-10 minutes to configure apps, etc. Reboot once more (So profile updates will work) Before doing anything, go to settings -> System Updates -> Update Profile Reboot Then go to Settings -> System Updates -> Update PRL Reboot Once more Add Google Account information Install your favorite 3rd party apps Enjoy the ROM! 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! Download to internal or External SD Card. Reboot into CWM (HAS TO BE THE TOUCH BASED ONE) Format Cache and Dalvik Cache Install Zip It will reboot on it's own Once it boots, let it sit for about 5-10 minutes to configure apps, etc. Reboot once more (So profile updates will work) Before doing anything, go to settings -> System Updates -> Update Profile Reboot Then go to Settings -> System Updates -> Update PRL Reboot Once more Add Google Account information Enjoy the ROM! Steps to do an activation: Make sure the ESN AND IMEI number are on your Virgin Mobile Account Turn the phone on goto settings goto activate device let it fail out and repeat step 4 two more times then update PRL and Profile If the above does not work, flash a completely unmodified stock rom then do the following: Make sure the ESN AND IMEI number are on your Virgin Mobile Account Turn the phone on goto settings goto activate device let it activate and then reboot verify that you can make calls, SMS, and got data. Flash AdvancedStock7, making sure to wipe data, cache, and dalvik cache 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. Using the init.d emulator: On boot, Grant Uninit.d root access, this allows it to make the proper folders and files for init.d emulation. 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.) reboot and watch your scripts run without any effort! Let me know how the init.d emulator works for you if you use it!
