Default [ROM] [VECTUS] GN5 Project AOSP [V0.0] 4.4.2 (03-22-2014)

This is meant for the Sprint LG G2 (LS980)

Ok I don't have a fancy Name folks... So GN5 Project will suffice... This is just a little hobby rom I use. It's based on CM and designed to mimick the Nexus 5. So KISS is the word (keep it simple AND stupid). This rom is not fancy at all... It's vanilla actually. But thats for a reason... So YOU the user can add what you like and take away... Make it YOUR kitkat if you will... Click the screenshots button at the top for screenshots...

What's in this (v0.0)
Furnace Kernel -1.8.0 for AOSP (BIG thanks to Savoca!!!)
Stock Google (No MMS app, No Browser it uses Chrome and Hangouts like the N5)
Based on CM, it has all CM parts. IE all issues CM has
VTWEAKS. For example (naming a few and not all):
Wifi Scan Interval 240
My touchscreen sensitivity Mod
Window Max Events 300
Lots of init.d Tweaks (some not all):
SD Card speed 7168
Zipalign on Boot
Battery Calibration
Zipalign Data
Sqlite Optimized
Smoothness Tweaks[/HIDE]

Apps Included:
 
All google Apps
Google Wallet
Xposed for Kitkat (Thanks rovo980!)
NO SMS/MMS app (download what you want or use Hangouts or may I suggest 8sms?)
Kingsoft Office
Facebook
CM File Manager
N0-Frills CPU control
Screen Off
Torch
Sprint Voicemail (I'll include this later but pull the one from a stock rom and install as a regular app and it will work...) SEE 2nd POST
Playstore
Google Launcher
SolCalendar
Has N5 Alarms, Notifications, Ringtones, and Bootanimation
TRICK you may want to use: I don't use the included Kitkat Launcher. I use Apex (download it from the market). I activate screen off. In Apex I click behavior settings. Go to desktop double tap and click it. Click Launch App. Find Screen Off and click it. Hit OK. You can now double tap the screen in and turn the screen off!!! Inspire Launcher (an actual Kitkat Launcher has this same setting. Find Inspire in the Playstore).

NOTE: I don't have an agreement with Google therefore I don't need to use Gapps (the playstore is included)


How to flash:
 
First time installing to your LS980, or coming from another ROM:
- If you use a recovery OTHER than TWRP based. I can't help you (this rom will boot on ALL modems AND ZVA).
- Download the Rom
- Copy the rom ZIP to your SDCard
- Boot into Recovery
- Click Wipe
- Click Advanced Wipe
- Click Dalvik Cache, System, Data, and Cache
- Swipe to Wipe
- Got to Install
- Navigate to where you stored the Rom
- Click the Rom
- Swipe to confirm Flash
- Once complete REBOOT

That is all you need to do

- Don't restore system data using Titanium Backup!
- Restoring Apps + Data might cause problems and is not recommended, avoid it if possible!


Thanks:
CyanogenMod for CM
lg
Google for android
LG FOR THE N5 and G2

Lrod0175 for all his help! Thanks Man!!

ROM DOWNLOAD

FIX for Chrome lockup:
 
If you suffer Chrome lock up or strange Chrome behavior navigate to system/etc and delete the sysctl.conf file. And reboot. It will not have any adverse effects on the rom. Somehow I threw that file in there and its not needed... Thats why we don't develop while drinking beer folks lol.


SPARK FIX. I don't know if anyone else has suffered this but here is how I fixed it. After coming from a AOSP based rom I could NOT get Spark/LTE to work on a stock rom. I fixed this issue by using ##3282# (Hidden settings) and disabling band 41. The phone will then reboot. I then had LTE. I then used ##3282# again and went in and re-enabled band 41. The phone rebooted and my Spark AND Lte was working again. Please NOTE that you must be on a stock rom and you will need to have your MSL. Go HERE to get them. BIG thanks to chris0160 for posting them!

Sprint Visual Voicemail download it and put on your Internal memory. Install as a regular app (you will receive several texts confirming it works...)

Were you on ZVA Modem? Also did you use CWM or TWRP? It should flash fine with Data and Wifi working...

Same issue here. Flashes fine but no data or WiFi. I see the radio and prl are right. I am guessing an APN issue since we are not able to update profile..?

Fast and smooth!
