    Post [ROM/FW][STOCK][PIE] LG V30 (Joan) VS996 Verizon 30c TWRP flashable firmware ROM

    Just received this notice, thought I had it edited out of the firmware for update checks. SMH, nice to have a security update, at least i edited the network automagic update download address is blank.

    I see what you guys are talking about. I'm on VS99630c and under TWRP restore it doesn't see my previous US99830b backups. TWRP can see the files under the File Manager and Install. If I move the US998 "dated backups" using TWRP's File Manager to the VS996 folder it will the see the files...

    I second what cmrntnnr stated above and emphasize flashing VS996 on the V30. Big Red can still tell what your phone actually is by its IMEI. My V30 originally was a LS998. I also had to manually set the MMS settings to keep Verizon firmware from thinking it is a Sprint phone. Please see this...

    Post System crashes in particular location

    Interference can be experienced due to unfiltered frequency harmonics overloading the phones radio(s) because of close proximity to a high wattage transmitter. Rare but possible. I'm an amateur radio operator and it happens.

    Is there any broadcast TV or radio stations close by? Strong RFI (radio frequency interference) can sometimes cause problems.

    I'm on Verizon using Textra with a converted LS998 to US998. When I use the VS996 firmware I have no issue with SMS and MMS. When I'm on US998 firmware SMS is fine but MMS borks. You have to manually configure your APN settings. See screen shots. You can also try toggling airplane mode.
