E4GT-Virgin Mobile-ROM's, mods, etc that work for me..
I thought I'd post a list of roms, mods, etc., that work on my VM phone and any issues and workarounds.
I'm too lazy to include links, but search is your friend.
Hopefully this will help VM users who are somewhat reluctant to mod their phones.
1. CyanogenMod and other AOSP roms.
Stable for the most part and easy to install, what's not to like?
For me, data speeds on ICS modem firmwares aren't as fast (esp. 4G) as the stock TW GB28.
However I haven't seen a lot of complaints on the subject, so Your Mileage May Vary™.
Working GPS requires that after each reboot I toggle GPS on, off, and then back on.
It works normally until the next reboot after which it's wash, rinse, and repeat.
Working SMS/MMS requires either manually editing the APN or flashing the Virgin Mobile SMS/MMS fix found in the Android Development thread.
I use GPS Test+ a lot, and there are graphic corruption issues on the little global map.
From what I could find, the problem is something about Samsung's Mali-400 drivers.
2. Sprint GB27 stock rom mods.
Everything just works™, except for messaging and any issues noted in the threads.
Messaging's a simple fix though, just use ##DATA# and edit the mms settings from Sprint's to VM's.
I also suspect that the update profile and prl in settings don't work, but I'm not brave enough to try.
3. jdsingle's 'Debloated/Deodexed Virgin Mobile GB28' rom.
This is my daily driver.
The only issue is that if you click on 'connections optimizer' in settings, the phone locks up, as jd removed it.
To me, this is a nothingburger. If you're a VM customer, I *highly* recommend this rom.
1. tdunham's AIO mods.
The only issues for me are that the '3G' graphic signal bars don't work and under settings it says the network is 'unknown'.
The included hack for the built in tether app works perfectly on GB28.
2. Xposed framework.
No problems using it with the XPrivacy and Master Key fix apps.
I did notice some system slowdown when adding theming apps, though.
3. Agat's kernels.
These are the major ones I've tried so far.
