Default [ROM][23/10/2012]CyanogenMod 7.2+ v1.8

Tired of slow roms? Want the ICS look? Want to kiss goodbye to task killers? I present to you my build of CyanogenMod, modded
(yes, I'm not creativee20with names)

CM BUILD VERSION: CM 7.2 Nightly 20121021
Mod version: v1.8


What I did was try to keep the rom as fast and smooth as possible while making it look spiffy and trying to conserve battery life

Screenshots (ICS theme):


Features:

-TitanFusion kernel by samno (overclocking and more)
-1.2GHz standard clock
-Tweaks for build.prop, init.rc and some more
-Zipaligned rom
-Init.d tweaks
-Wifi and 3G tweaks for speed
-Sony Bravia Engine
-Replaced ADWLauncher with LauncherPro
-OTA updates with UpdateMe
-Added a bunch of free apps (Adfree, Adobe Flash, Facebook etc)
-Updated Superuser binary, Rom Manager, Busybox
-Added themes (ICS, Lucid and Vivid - switch to them from within Theme Manager)
-Roboto font added
-LG ICS boot animation
-A lot of ringtones and notification tones


Not working:
Whatever that CM doesn't have (3D and HDMI)
Wireless tethering won't turn off properly (reboot to shut it off)

[Q&A]
This section hopefully addresses some common questions. Read this before posting any questions.

Before asking anything, clear cache and dalvik cache and see if it fixes the problem.

Browser unable to load anything despite 3G working? See here.

Q: Where is 3D gallery/video/gaming? How can I get it?
A: Never, until LG open-sources their proprietary Real3D framework. Now stop asking. Please?

Q: I don't want CM! I still want 3D!
A: Look elsewhere. There are great stock roms by ThiaiZ and The Dark Lestat as well as Meemo23 on this forum

Q: Must I wipe data? I have a lot of apps and data!
A: From experience, you must wipe when you install this rom for the first time. Afterwards, you can just wipe cache and dalvik cache and install the apps again. DO NOT restore Titanium backups since it will virtually leave your phone in the state it was before factory resetting.

Q: When I boot my phone, LauncherPro doesn't start/hangs/shows a black screen!
A: It is a well known problem with LauncherPro. Just press and hold the back button until a popup appears, then select "force close".

Q: I want to overclock Can I flash TitanKernel?
A: Flashing a stock kernel on CM will result in bootloops. Although overclocking is not needed for this rom since it's so fast and smooth already, you can use the overclockable modules here to overclock, and read the instructions there. Make sure you download the CM compatible modules and not the other modules.

Q: Do I need a task killer?
A: No! Task killers are not needed on a rom like this In fact, they can cause more problems than they solve...

Q: Where do I change the themes?
A: After installing the rom, go to the apps list and scroll down until you find Theme Chooser. From there, you can choose the corresponding theme you want. If it says that it is missing files, ignore it and apply the files anyway. Try Lucid and Vivid, they are exclusive to this rom only as they are paid themes on Play Store. However, Sonny (the developer of the themes) kindly allowed me to use his themes for free. Support Sonny by purchasing his themes here and here for your other phones Also, his ICS theme is included for you to mock those without ICS or its lookalikes

Q: Where do I get the LauncherPro themes for the themes?
A: The ICS and Lucid themes are already in the rom. There is no LauncherPro theme for Vivid if I'm not mistaken.

Q: How do I make my LauncherPro dock look like it came from ICS?
Download this and this. Extract the zip file to a folder your phone's sdcard. To set icons, long tap on the individual icons in the dock, select change icon, custom icon then browse to the correct icon. For the dock, tap the settings button in homescreen > preference > appearance settings > dock background > custom > [folder of icons] hhhha.png. If the icons do not appear, reboot your phone and it will appear. Done!

Q: Why is [app] not working?
A: Ask the developers of [app]. Only ask if it's root-related or is affected by busybox or something related to what I added in the rom.

Q: Can you include RTL support?
A: Try CM first. I have no idea if RTL is included as there are 3 Arabic languages in Languages so you tell me if it's included

Q: Why is xxx feature not working?
A: Don't ask me because I'm not the developer of CyanogenMod You can report functionality issues here. Examples of what should be reported to the CyanogenMod team would be call echoes, although they will not accept any reports of problems when you use this rom as they only want reports from stock CyanogenMod users. Only ask here if it's related to the tweaks I made.

Hi, I can try that over the weekend. However, the reason I based this on CM is because LG stock roms lag too badly Nonetheless, I will give it a try and see if there's a noticeable performance hit. If it isn't too bad, I'll put that up instead to get the best of both worlds

On idle it drains pretty slowly, about 3% overnight. It lasts one and a half days or so
for me, ymmv depending on your usage.
