Red face [ROM] "Semi-Official" 2.3.4 rooted "stock" for P999 devices - LG Camera update
Update: November 6, 2011 @ 9:43 p.m. ICT
LG Camera added. I have ported the LG Camera from the P990 2.3.4 build and as far as I can tell it is working perfectly. Below is a flashable zip updater for CWM. It clears the Dalvik Cache so the reboot will take several minutes. Enjoy! Note: The front facing camera (FFC) is inverting the video. At the moment there is no fix for it. If you need the FFC for video chat, etc. please keep the stock camera app.
Updater to add LG Camera to JB 2.3.4 rom

MD5 checksum: 4bf6bbdaa14584783ee5b4f2f927b7f
Note: If you want to access LG Hidden Menus on this rom you need to enter 1809#*95# into the dialer since the rom was ported from an LG-L95G device (the hardware is identical to the P999).

UPDATE - November 5, 2001 @ 19:58 ICT
Version 6b uploaded. Should fix issue of rom not being rooted OOTB.

UPDATE - November 4, 2001 @ 20:28 ICT
Version 6a uploaded. Modified framework-res.apk to remove Tracfone default apn for T-Mobile and Simple Mobile users.

UPDATE - NoveMber 2, 2001 @ 10:38 a.m. ICT
Links for version 6 are below. Major changes are power up and down animations changed to stock LG (no carrier branding) and MobileHotspot and USB tethering are now working.

UPDATE - October 31, 2011 @ 1:14 a.m. ICT
This is a rom made from official LG 2.3.4 from an LG-L95G, which is the same hardware as the P999 but made for Tracfone. I rooted it, added the Recovery 2X rebooter and other changes to get it working on the P999 and rebrand it it T-Mobile, rather than Tracfone. Known issues are listed below (very few). The rom appears to be very stable (so far no reboots of SODs).

Everything is now working, including wifi. This is based on a ROM built by LG for the Tracfone lg_l95G (same hardware and partitions as the p999), so it is essentially "stock" 2.3.4 for the P999 devices.

Flash using Clockwordmod Recovery (must be installed first) and the first time you flash it I would sugget a factory reset, clear Dalvik Cache (advanced in CWM) and format the system (mounts and storage in CWM). Any revisions flashed will just require a wipe of the Dalvik Cache to be safe, as you should do for any changes to any system file. This rom uses the ext3 file system.

Flash with Clockworkmod Recovery (needs to be installed first). Wipe everything and format your system the first time you flash. If you are updating you just need to wipe the Dalvik Cache between flashes.

Kernel experimenters

Here is a flashable zip to restore the 2.3.4 kernel and wireless.ko so you can play around with kernels and flash back without resorting to a full nandroid restore.

Enjoy.

Simple Mobile Version of v. 6b
This has an apns-conf.xml for virtually all worldwide carriers, which the exception of MCC=310, MNC=260 will set the APN automatically for Simple Mobile settings, rather than T-Mobile's settings. I feel for you guys.

Known Issues:

Om T-Mobile you are connected but no carrier name in notification pull down. Other carriers are shown.

Swype keyboard not working when text is swiped. Can only be entered one letter at a time.


Original Post:

I have made an experimental ROM using Android 2.3.4 built by LG for the LG-L95G, which is the same hardware as the P999 built for Tracfone (Simple Mobile). It has not been released yet but an XDA member who has one imaged his ROM. I have based this ROM on this and the rooted OTA ROM made by Xboarder. This rom should be rooted and has no TMO bloatware.

This is a flashable zip to be flashed in Clockworkmod Recovery. I would suggest wiping everything first to be safe. Please report back on whether it boots and how stable it is. I have not flashed it myself yet as my G2X is my primary device right now and I have not flashed it yet.

Caveat: This is experimental and buyer beware. As always I am not responsible if you brick your device, boot loop, etc. as you have been warned. This should be flashed by experienced flashers only. No NOOBS please!

I made up my own version number "GRJB54" and removed Tracfone's lame boot animation and put back the T-Mobile one. I also added back T-Mobile's ringtone (not default) for people that like it. Other changes I made was putting the flex provider back to T-Mobile USA, rather than Americamovil. Tracfone also had LG disable tethering in the build.prop. I re-enabled it.

Have fun!

2.3.4 has some security fixes from 2.3.3. Also starting with 2.3.4 you no longer have to log back into Google accounts when changing sims. This is my favorite feature of 2.3.4+ roms. When my Nexus One first updated to 2.3.4 I thought something was wrong because I changed sims and I wasn't required to log back into my Google accounts. I checked the Google Android forums and found out this was an intentional change on Google's part based on complaints from world travelers who were annoyed at having to log back into their accounts every time they put in a new sim.

Boots up just fine and it's a pretty plain vanilla Android installation with not bloat ... unless you consider Polaris Office to be bloat.

That said, it's telling me I have an unknown baseband. I can't get it to connect to T-Mobile or my wifi network. It detects my wifi network, but when I enter the password it won't connect. I tried re-entering the password to make sure I didn't enter a typo.

I'm restoring my backup just to be sure there's no permanent damage, and then I'll post a couple screenshots I took.

Did you try shutting it down and turning it back on. Sometimes you get that baseband error after flashing. Otherwise I will have to see what is going on. Maybe I need to put back the RIL files from the 2.3.3. build?

There should be no damage as the baseband is not flashed. Just the system area.

Yea, I shut it down, pulled the battery and SIM, reinserted everything and booted back up and still unknown baseband and won't connect to wifi.

I just checked out the ROM. It is missing files for the RIL (radio interface layer). I will put in the ones from the 2.3.3. ROM and hopefully that will fix the unknown baseband problem. I wonder how the Tracfone one had a baseband as all the RIL calls were commented out and files are missing?
