The source for the lgp506 (Aka LG Thrive), im hoping devs well get on this, and apply a p506 version for there existing roms, for them to work with the p506 correctly. Otherwise, from what i've been able to surmise is, the only issue with porting roms from the p500 to other variations seem to correlate from the kernel.

and in regard to the p506, the current cm7 rom port works, only the screen is 8-bit and showing only 3-4 pallets of blue.

Hope this source helps out.

if you dont like or cant use multiupload, other means to get the source is just going to http://www.lg.com/global/support/ope...opensource.jsp and searching lgp506go.

I diff'ed the source against the P500 source.
Practically the only difference is that the P506 has two framebuffer(?) drivers (novatek and hitachi) rather than one (just hitachi), with runtime detection of hw.

Relevant kernel config is CONFIG_FB_MSM_MDDI_NOVATEK_HVGA.

Since /proc/mtd is the same for P500 and P506, I guess roms and recoveries go through with just this display glitch issue, but it'd be great to have a proper one.

Does anyone know whether it is possible to just replace the zImage in CWM/amon_ra, or a compilation is required?

I have installed a 2.2.1 P500 ROM on my P506 with my stock kernel and I can verify that the color issue is history. We just need devs to port there kernels to the P506 and we can utilize the ROMs for the P500.

Please devs help us Thrive / P506 users out a little! :)

What do you guys need? A kernel? If so get more users to coment this topic and I'll see if its reasonable to release a kernel with the extra framebuffer. But I need to be sure the user base of this phone is high enough, otherwise it's pointless.
