Default Repairs bring me back

I've got an ion that was replaced twice bc of faulty Mic. The third one that went bad before I got my LG optimus G has been gathering dust. I found a website that sells the LCD flex cable that includes a new Mic unit for 19.99 I figured what the hell, and pulled the trigger. While I wait for it to arrive I figured I'd check in on the forum I abandoned so long ago. This is unfortunately an AT&t model so no boot loader unlock for me. (Unless) something has changed? I'm going to have this ion splayed open for a bit replacing parts... anyone with any JTAG skills wanna comment on anything I could try?

In the interim I'd like to read your thoughts on what the fastest fully functional and best cam ROMs are avail for LB ions.

I might repurpose this device but I'd like to keep its main functions working best as possible.


I'll have full pics high quality of tear down and reassembly updated later.

I have been using Aoba with a bunch of personal touches and I am very happy with it. I was having a bit of a battery drain but figured out today it was location based wifi causing it. I went with a non Z1 camera as it still had issues. I used the mod for existence to get a more stock camera and also used the video fix to get it sorted. Optimo's 96 port has been a blessing for these lt28at devices.
