Stock LG Optimus G Bell Variant E973(h)

ROGERS & TELUS in 2nd POST

Since a lot of people will be flashing and trying out new roms, I wanted to make an easy just stock clean version (bare bones)
instead of reflashing the stock image back & then reRooting & then ReFreegee'ing.. So I decided to release to the public as well.
Remember this is not an Enhancement Rom or Fully Customized Rom that's going to make your phone go vroooom. it's just stock
to fall back on.


This Stock Bell E973(h) ICS Features
Quote:

Code:
*rooted - thanks bin4ry
*Service Menu App - thanks to weisborg
*Fast Dormancy Toggle App - thanks to jonasl 
*Quickboot
*Google Now - trimmed down version
*debloated
*Few build.prop mods - if you prefer just stock, there is a build.prop.bak in the system folder.
*If you are on a different kernel
 (this will flash just the FreeGee stock kernel with LG security removed) - you can always flash sk8's kernel afterwards
*Probably a lot of other goodies that I'm just too lazy to mention or have forgotten.

Requirements before you install
Quote:

Code:
*always make an nandroid before you install so you have something to fall back on

*rooted already
*Freegee'd (unlock bootloader) - thanks TheCuded(IOMonster) & Shellnut2
*CWM 6.0.2.3 or CWM 6.0.27 - thanks sk8

Thank you for this!! So nice to not have all that silly bloatware.

Just an FYI, I could not flash this using TWRP, had no issues with CWM though.

phone seems alot quicker, the fast dormancy App, does that work with our phones? Or do we have to do it through ADB?

The setting we need to change is on the line 302780?? I think.

I thought ths App only worked with the phone model for the guy who created it?

Houstonn, I've been using this all day , simply this is what we should get on our devices!!
I can confirm the fast dormancy app does not work for bell devices and telus, I used adb to turn it off, I'll post the link to the instructions I used

I have weeded out a good chunk of the included apps using Titanium and I must say I could not be more happy with this phone. I got rid of apps that I know I would never use, installed a few stock Google apps to replace, but left that apps I felt like...maybe that could be useful. The biggest change came after disabling Fast Dormancy(thank you VERY much to jonasl). My Android OS usage in Battery Info went from being 50-55% usage to 14-23%. No more wake in BetterBatteryStats related to fast dormancy.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2018894

For Sasktel E973 users...the MCCMNC # Sasktel uses is 302780...so to do this via ADB your commands would be as follows:

$ adb shell
# su
# sqlite3 /data/data/com.android.providers.telephony/databases/telephony.db
update dcm_settings set fastdormancy="0" where numeric="302780";
.quit
# reboot

And if you want to revert back to having it enabled with default values you would do:

$ adb shell
# su
# sqlite3 /data/data/com.android.providers.telephony/databases/telephony.db
update dcm_settings set fastdormancy="1,0,0,1000,5000,10000,5000,5000,1" where numeric="302780";
.quit
# reboot

For other Canadian Network MCCMNC #'s ....

The apps that I have successuly uninstalled via Titanium in no particular order:
-Calender
-Calender Widget
-Email
-Email Widget
-Facebook
-Favorite Contact Widget
-Finance
-Media Home
-Memo
-Memo Widget
-Music 3.1.007
-Music 3.0.33
-MusicFX
-News
-Notebook
-SmartShare
-Twitter
-Video Editor
-Video Wiz
-Nuance Voice Control
-Voice Recorder
-Weather
-Google Play Books
-Google Play Movies

That at is all.....cheers all
