Default E971-Rogers-Stock ROM 4.0.4 with Bloat Removed.

Hey all you Rogers LGOG fans,

The wait is over. We are releasing our carrier/bloat-free LGOG Stock 4.0.4 ROM. This ROM has a few other modifications as well, which you can find below however, this ROM is essentially stock, flashable, updateable to JB(Pending bootloader unlock retention) and bloat-free. This ROM is also rooted so you won't have to do it again. Below you will see my changelog and development notes. Before we start going flash happy, I would like to extend a warm thanks to Nottach for his "The Base ROM" on the AT&T variation of our device, which was used as a base for this ROM, as well as the entire Team Codefire for unlocking our bootloader and getting the first CMW on the device. Now the fun stuff:

Disclaimer:

WE TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY TO ANY DAMAGE, BRICKING or OTHERWISE IRREVERSIBLE CHANGES TO THEIR PHONES. YOU PROCEED NOW AT YOU'RE OWN RISK.

PART 1: Root and Unlock Bootloader

1. Visit http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1886460 for Rooting instructions thanks to Bin4ry
2. Visit http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2007961 for Bootloader unlocking instructions thanks to Shelnutt2 and Team Codefire

PART 2: The ROM

1. Download our ROM and place it on the internal storage
2. Boot into recovery (Don't worry about wiping the aroma installer will do the hard work for you)
3. Make a BACKUP of your current ROM
4. flash our ROM and reboot (Make sure you flash from internal storage)

That's it! Now you're bloat and carrier free while still being able to enjoy all the features of stock.

Changelog - v1.0 (Based off of "The Base 0.6.5")-Dec 5, 2012

- Root
- BusyBox
- Deodex App Folder
- ZipAligned

Bugs

None Reported Yet.

Thank you so much for posting your Rom. I hope the development for this phone will soon carry along... great work!

Do you know if this is cross carrier compatible?

No Problem! With the devs working together, I think it will take right off. It's a Mako

I want to say yes that it's cross carrier compatible but I can't for sure. PM me you're rooted and unlocked and maybe we can take a look at a few things to see.

Dumb question probably, put zip in /sdcard
booted into CWM,
flashed from internal storage
went through aroma, rebooted
still seeing the lg logo at and don't see any changes of the base

wondering if i did something wrong?

let me know and thanks for the time and effort you put into this

Hmm that's strange for sure. Verify that you're carrier apps are gone. If they are then let me know and something didn't take with the bootscreen. If you still have them, reflash with the method above and let me know if it worked the second time around.

I'll be away from the computer for a couple hours. Talk to you soon!

I'm in a similar boat unfortunately. I just freshly unlocked it with the freegee one click app since I wanted to support this kind of stuff when I shut down it started up again right away as if I had pressed restart instead of shutdown. It briefly showed the lg logo then turned off the screen then brought it back on but only displaying black. That's where it sat until I did the equivalent of a battery pull by holding the power button for a really long time. I started it up again, this time holding volume up as well as power and got to fastboot and from there to the recovery. Flashed after that, no problems came up. Then it did the same thing it did the first time with the lg logo, screen off for a second, then black.

What now? o_0

I've already tried flashing it again over top of it so now I'm going to give restoring from backup a shot.
I'll let you know how that goes.

EDIT: Hmm... not good. I can attempt to restore but I get a MD5 mismatch.

Bleh. Hmm... think we both could have, by some coincidence, had a bad download? I was going to try and flash it again but sideloading the zip this time but I switched to a new computer recently and need to set up adb and stuff again. The other thing I was wondering too was about wiping the data partition. This was brought on by this step in the unbricking instructions you linked me to.

I'm coming to this phone from a nexus which was dead simple and straight forward when it came to partitions and having an internal sd and just regular internal memory. This phone just has internal memory, right? So wiping data is going to wipe everything everything, right?
