    Hey :)

    I got tired of having to reinstall by the lg flash tool due to mess ups so i created a fully rooted stock rom which can also be used to (sorta) to create a cyanogenmod rom soon (hopefully).

    Whats changed:

    • Removed Bloat Apps
    • Added 3g & speed mods
    • Fully rooted & busybox
    • Kernel Installed is loki'd

    • Working on reboot without factory reset when going to recovery without hardware buttons
    Please do not use an app to load recovery! With this rom 2nd init is not needed anymore to go back from a problem.

    Read about various MSL issues on here, does one have to worry about it using this ROM, does it remain intact?

    MSL & imei are at the highest system level being in the bootloader.

    This is a simple user end rom which only affects certain partitions.

    The lg flash tool can access the entire system so with a bad bin flash you can corrupt your msl and imei.

    So NO neither this rom or others can affect your msl.

    Same here. I'm glad that the developmental flood gates have opened. Can't wait to see what follows.

    Running it now, works great. Actually have enough space on the phone itself to run all my navigation and apps I use all the time. Thanks!

    Now if only I could figure out why two of my apps won't install back with titanium backup. Progress just sits there at 0% if I try to reinstall either one.

    This is just the normal stock rom so to access recovery you have to power the phone off completely then press and hold power + vol dwn till the screen shows entering recovery.

    Had to dirty flash the rom to keep from having to reactivate. Is there any other way to keep from having that happen?

    Check for the advanced WiFi option, 'keep wifi on during sleep'.

    I am currently trying to find time to do so, but at the moment my main concern is removing those annoying factory reset issues and possibly unlocking the bootloader via kernel..

    Also the issue of having to always reactivate, the reason is its programmed in the code to activate on first boot since this firmware is used between 3 carriers.

    Best way to fix this is to flash it and activate fully then create a nandroid backup which will actually work since the kernel is loki'd.

    Removing the auto activate will make it difficult for new users.

    Also figured out if you update your profile and prl on first boot you get your data back.

    The stock Rom is odex. You can find out by using a root permissions file browser to go through the system/App category and see that everything has another file with the same name but odex extension.

    I installed this, but my phone isn't rooted anymore. I tried rooting it again with motochopper but no dice.

    Okay, so apparently it's rooted... but superuser seems to be absolutely useless and BusyBox doesn't seem to be installed.

    I get this whenever I try to run a BusyBox command from shell. (like clear or grep)
    Code (Text):
    1. /system/xbin/clear: line 1: /cygdrive/c/system/xbin/busybox: No such file or directory

    I had rooted the rom cyanogenmod style so i could use it as a base rom.

    Busybox is in the bin folder and is symlinked to xbin.

    Also i had used a supersu su file which is why superuser is useless (my fault for rushing and not looking).

    Just remove superuser and install supersu or update the su file.

    I will fix and reupload the rom when i have time.

    I'm having an issue with connecting the phone to my computer after using this. It works in charge mode, and i can take pictures off of the internal storage in Camera connection mode, but Media sync isn't working anymore. The computer won't recognize it anymore when it's in media sync mode. I have the drivers installed, but still no potato.
