Standard disclaimer applies: if anything breaks down, it wasn't me.
Use this only on LG Thrive P506, not P505 or others.

Here's a flashable zip with the latest AT&T FOTA rom (thunderg-user 2.2.2 FRG83G LG-P506-V11h.19BA7112F9). Old, non-working mirror is here.

Changes from stock rom?
- rooted, deodexed, added a2sd support.
- updated Google apps (market, gmail, maps, voice search).
- added FM radio app (from P500) and AppWidgetPicker.
- RTL fix applied.
- AT&T apps moved from /system to /data, so they can be uninstalled.
- build.prop modified: debug.sf.hw=1 and wifi.supplicant_scan_interval=120.

How to flash?
- if you don't have a custom recovery, you first have to root, install Rom Manager and install CWM (use Optimus One (Old BB) version for now, it's imperfect but usable).
- use Rom Manager to boot to recovery (do nothing else from Rom Manager!), make a backup, and install the zip. The rom does not wipe your data, but do a factory reset before complaining about FCs.

Advanced topics
- a patched CWM recovery can be found here. It only solves the color issue, not others. A real solution may be pending.
- I usually delete DunServer.apk and IQAgent.apk from /system/app, as they seem to run automatically and do nothing. Perhaps WapService.apk is expendable too. YMMV.
- AT&T preset bookmarks/contacts can be removed by using SQL tools on the appropriate databases. I didn't bother with wifi/apn presets.

It's a stock, non-themed firmware.

See the official page or any review of the Thrive for screenshots.

This Stock P506 Thrive ROM didn't Recovery my P506 Thrive - Why?

Had all the prerequisites setup to apply this Stock P506 Thrive ROM.

In a pinch I needed a ROM and I tried this ROM for my P506 Thrive.

Has anyone also had problems recovering to this ROM? And if so, how did you work around and make a good recovery using this ROM?

Would this work on a Phoenix (P505)?


I tried it and it has the color issue where everything is blue/green and poor resolution. Has anyone found a fix for this yet?

One possible fix is not to install a P506 rom on a P505.
It is also written in boldface in the 2nd line of the original post.

Another fix is to restore the backup you did in CWM recovery.

What kind of problems? bootloop or FC? did you try to wipe?

LG Thrive P506 2.2.2 ROM Recovery hasn't recovered
Hi,

The P506 phone boots into CMW recovery over and over. Or with key-press sequence phone will boot into fastboot.

Problem isn't limited to this tweaked 2.2.2 ROM, the backup when restored is equally stuck in the boot to CMW.

Wiped many times in my opinion, but what does "wiped" mean to you? Maybe I didn't do it precisely as you want/require before attempting 2.2.2 recovery.

I think you should reflash recovery from fastboot.
Wipe is relevant if you get FCs or standard boot bootloops, not so much for recovery bootloops.
