Breaks LED notification, and maybe other things. But I haven't seen other stuff being broken.

Dude, this is great. I actually enjoy the stock rom, unlike the garbage I have gotten from Samsung in the past. Is there a list of which apps were removed? The Bell ones I use (mobile tv and selfserve) I can easily reinstall, even remote pvr if I need to demo that for a customer again. But the LG ones would be harder to come by, but I could back up the installer, if they have one.



Thanks buddy, and great work.

This rom is *exactly* what I need. CM 10.1 has a bug which all the JB roms for the LGOG have, which stops me from being able to make use of my data. This only affects those with unlimited mobile browsing (eg. SpeakOut) and it breaks tethering. This will be my DD but I need some help getting it onto my phone.

I accidentally wiped my sdcard instead of /system. Now all my phone can do is boot into fastboot and also CWM 6.0.2.3 recovery. How can I get this rom onto my internal SDcard? I do not have an external SDcard slot on my E971 Rogers.

I think you might be best flashing stock with kdz, rooting, then freegeeing, then putting rom onto sd, then reboot into cwm (this rom only flashes with cwm by the way) and flash,

Also when you flash stock again with kdz, use the firmware that allows you to root.
I done exact same as you yesterday, unless there is a fast boot command to transfer rom onto sd I'm not sure though.

I installed ADB on my PC then booted my phone into fastboot, pressed Vol Down, Vol Down, Power. That took me to CWM, which I have upgraded to 6.0.2.3. Note that everyone must update CWM (or TWRP) and I saw some ppl saying CWM 6.0.2.7 may not be good on our LGOG. Note2: You must make a new backup once you upgrade your CWM because the nandroid backups from the original CWM 6.0.1.9 are not working! Once CWM is running, ADB can be used to upload a new rom to the phone with the ADB push command. In adb shell I used "mkdir" to make a folder first, I like to call it AAA. It took 5-10 mins to copy the rom zip file onto the LGOG then I immediately flashed it with CWM. Everything is normal again

I luv this rom so far. It even has the 10e update. The LED works and the capacitive buttons are great to have working again. Most importantly, I can now tether and use a proxy! Very fast rom.

Thanks Houstonn, this rom was WAY overdue and well needed and appreciated. Other developers had made promises but all tried and failed.

Two Q:
1. With the debloating I expected to have more ram available. Still 900mb of 2000mb is being used. Any idea what is using so much memory?

2. I have rogers E971, is fast dormancy working?

3. Did anyone find a link for the Google Search zip that is compatible? Or what is the criteria we are looking for when searching for the apk. Will a generic ICS google search apk be what we need or is there more to it?

So not sure if it's ROM or cable related, but I'm getting a battery not charging after a full drain. It most likely is cable related. See here.

However this is most definitely ROM related. The auto brightness doesn't work! It stays stuck at X amount of brightness. When the room is dark, it was still at 63% brightness so I had to dim the screen manually to 0%, then turn on auto brightness again. Now the room is bright, but it's stuck at 0% brightness.

Have you tried another ROM? Did you do a clean flash?
