GO with the stock odexed. It's the closest to stock so less chance for errors.

Or the classic odexed stock zvc here.

Both links are working, just clicked em, lol. Odexed is stock, deodexed, read the thread but it allows you to theme the stock. I'd probably go with the second link because you are switching to another rom anyway.

Thanks @HPTesla.

If you used LGNPST and a stock zvc bin file you would, but the link is for a zvc odexed rooted rom. Basically stock zvc already rooted. As for keeping the backup, I would make a backup of the zvc rom(once you update and make sure everything works), and get rid of the other one after you backup that one. Then just flash your new rom and gapps, if you have any issues, you can go right back to a working stock and try again or something else.

Thanks @HPTesla.

No prob, Im having issues with my new linux mint 16 install, mdm failed and I couldnt boot so I was back and forth. Could only startx and cinnamon was running without hardware virtualization - SO slow on a dual core 1.7ghz vaio. But I disabled mdm login and all is back to normal. Thanks to you for picking up my slack earlier buddy.

EDIT: By the way @engine95, will he have any issue flashing that zvc rom from the updated twrp? I've never tried it and I think xbox gave him chad's twrp-geespr recovery(just guessing though).

I used LGNPST (sp?) when we first got jb to root. I haven't used this phone since July first. We didn't have zvc back then. I'm just wondering if I flash it will I lose root? I don't have a comp at the moment. Mother board crapped out.


Also the second link is dead. There's no download and the description says dead link. Lol

XDA is killing me today. Here is the direct link from androidfilehost. http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23252070760972777

Edit here's dev host. http://d-h.st/qV2
Edit 2. It is already rooted, so just flash and go.
You should have no problems installing with any TWRP. Not sure about CWM

Damn you are right again, I just made sure the link loaded to where it was supposed to go.....and ofcourse I don't think I have that on my hard drive, Im looking tho, if I do I will upload it....but engine is the one that uploaded it originally so maybe he has it or knows what's up..

EDIT: He beat me to it, but I'm downloading and saving it myself just in case. 846mb - I forget how big stock is!

And no, you shouldn't lose root with this, it's already rooted. The stock zvc bin with LGNPST sets your phone back to factory including losing root. This should be zvc with root.

I used to know a lot about phones but when I started going to school i dropped my guide status at android forums and stopped coming around all together. Now I got this phone fixed I wanted to make sure it completely works.

Yeah Ive been into computers for over 20 years but some of this phone stuff is still new to me. And the lgog is very different from my old evo4g, but I'm learning. I still need to get a new pc so I can start building roms myself. Well glad to have you here man, the ls970 is a great phone and has a great community behind it.
