Been watching this thread for weeks now! Great work yall, Cant wait to get my poor eve a much needed update.

I am using a New Zealand branded Gw620f (telecom)

I cant get into fast boot mode, I have searched the crap out of the web for any way to get into it to no avail!

Could anyone help me... Space (space + menu) even holding '1' key on boot is not working, tried with and without battery. Tried without usb, nothing, no fast boot. I am running v10e.

Downgrade in V10G or V10C with LG-Utils. You'll get fastboot.

In my original rom I had also greek keyboard (switching between english and greek by pressing caps+space). Is there any way to enable greek input on eclair?

Moreover I have observed when the gsm system is active (i.e. not in airplane mode) the phone gets hot, is that normal?

What about battery consumption? Took my phone off the charger at 09:00AM fully charged (with gsm, 3g enabled) and by 14:00 the phone shut down, no more battery!!! Is that possible? 5 hours with no calls at all! In my previous post I mentioned that the phone gets warm meaning that it is draining battery but at such rate? Do you have similar issues guys with the eclair rom flashed?

System.img V4.1 and boot.img V1.2 are released.
boot.img is on the project page .
system.img here

EDIT:
zagitariuz mirrored it here: http://hotfile.com/dl/58673176/9e47f...emV4.1.7z.html
Beware, I packed it wrong. The 7z-file is actually bzip2 compressed.
frankmaier111 repacked it as zip and uploaded it here: http://rapidshare.com/files/41008040...mV4.1.zip.html

Feel free to use the issue tracker at the project homepage for reporting bugs and enhancements!

CHANGELOG:
ATTENTION: Wipe needed!
Use boot.img V1.2 or higher!

Replaced GoogleContactsProvider by ContactsProvider (sync is handled by GoogleContactsSyncAdapter)
Added Anycut and Rootexplorer
Updated apn list to cyanogen mod's
Upgraded libsqlite to android 2.1
Upgraded libnetutils to android 2.1
Upgraded native database functions,
android_os_MemoryFile,
android_net_NetUtils,
android_graphics_Typeface to android 2.1 by libandroid_runtime_eclair
This library contains the functionality of android 2.1's libandroid_runtime
and is used to overwrite some functions of the libandroid_runtime from
korean-v10t (which we have to use)

Fixed suid for xbin/su and bin/su. This is set in /system/bin/rc.
Now applications can again use root

Fixed Issue 27: directional arrows messed up (thanks saxando4u for reporting)
Fixed Issue 21: Notifications Bar issues
Fixed Issue 18: Wifi issues, will connect to wep but not wpa
But we have to see if my fix works for networks with only WPA or only WPA2 but not both
If you have already configured a network in a earlier version, you have to remove it and then add it again

Security issue: Dropbear is not automatically started on boot
You can change /system/bin/rundropbear if you want it

Fixed signatures for Arc* apps, now market works and and downloading inside the browser works, too
Fixed Issue 17: Cannot import/sync contacts
and additionally details are now shown
(even birthday!)
----

And would someone be willing to write an Installation guide or an FAQ in the project wiki?

---
Howto change the keylayout

There is now a donate link on the project page ...

so that's why my flash didn't work, I used the newest boot.img

edit: I can't open the 7z file, or actually, it says it's empty
