Default [Release] Custom Rom "Breakneck" for LG Vortex

.: About The Rom
This Rom is for the LG VORTEX only!!!! It will not work with any other phone.
To use this rom you will have to be on 2.2 and be rooted and have the custom recovery installed. To root use z4root. To install the custom recovery go here http://androidforums.com/getitnowmar...nderc-vzw.html
Since you have to put the files on your sdcard for the custom recovery, this is a good time to put the Breakneckmod zip file on the root of you sdcard too.
After you get the custom recovery installed create a nand backup.<h2><B>MAKE SURE YOU DO THIS SO YOU CAN GO BACK TO OEM.</B></h2> Now that you backed up your nand clear your cache, So go to <B>WIPE</B> and pick the following

Wipe Data/Factory reset
Wipe Cache
Wipe Dalvik Cache

Ok Since you Already have have the custom rom on your sdcard go ahead and pick "Flash zip from sdcard"
That is it you have a custom rom on your phone


.: Changes in Breakneck V1 rom
Just to start of my saying there are a few changes in this release. This was just to get things start.

Pre Rooted
BusyBox installed
BusyBox run-parts support
Nano text editor installed
Bash shell support
Zipaligh all apk file to optimize ram usage
Google search installed
ADW Launcher and LG Home (until I figure out how to remove LG Home cause alot of stuff is hard wired to LG Home)
Most of Verizon bloatware is removed

After you install you will have to pick LG Home or ADW launcher
If you want to use google search than Pick ADW launcher.

I want to thank dots, LBPHeretic of Androidforums and ciwrl, and Winnah9000 at Cyanogenmod


You can download it here breakneckmod

Thanks for the tips on getting me back to 2.2 from the 2.2.1 upgrade.

I've tried version 2 of the breakneckmod and I cannot adb shell into it. It gives me the following error when I try:

- exec '/system/bin/sh' failed: No such file or directory (2) -
check_LGE_official: fopen(/sdcard/thunder_security) error

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Is it possible to edit the way the home screen functions? for example; number of screens, transition effects etc. I like the home screen otherwise obviously I would use another, but I am more of a 3 screen kinda guy
