- CWM Zip 5xx MB system partition: Just flash with CWM, if you want full-wipe, then format /data partition with CWM first. Can only be flashed when you are using Gingerbread partitioning layout with >=512 MB /system partition size, not ICS.
- All versions: Install themes AFTER you have booted the ROM once. If market doesn't work on first boot, then reboot to fix it.

Gueste2X GoodBye v2.0R (rebuilt, updated) -- as NVFlash version and CWM ZIPChangelog latest version:
- NVFlash version added:
- allows you to unbrick your device
- allows you to go back from ICS and new bootloader directly to this ROM and Gingerbread bootloader + partitioning layout
- provides increased /system partition size of 512 MB, so it is compatible with tonyp/harsh ICS ROMs (full version)
- provides increased recovery partition size of 50 MB
- provides increased /data partition size of 1.85 GB
- Comes with CWM5 taken from Homero's NVFlash ROM, thanks and credits to him
- Noob-Secure installation process, user is told what to do and asked for permission
- Allows backup and restore of /data partition (when coming from Gingerbread-compatible partitioning layout)
- wipes internal SD card
- allows restoring of stock LG internal SD card contents (some music, apps,...)
- CWM ZIPs and general changes in all versions:
- upgrade to latest guestekrnL (kernel) v2.2.1 (release NOV 20 2012) - for providing latest features and maximum smoothness
- v20J RIL included per default. Best combination is with v20L BaseBand (available in download folder, install it for best power consumption!)
- Music Player Bugfix for v2.0 of the ROM already included
- updated ad blocker
- when performing /data wipe, you will get a system exactly like you had it directly after ROM flash, without losing any of the pre-installed apps of the ROM
- faster CWM installation process thanks to delivering /system partition contents as ext4 image file
- no more Aroma installation needed, best available guestekrnL will be installed per default (spica toolchain edition HOC)If you want a ROM smoother, faster, more stable and more energy saving than my currently offered ICS builds, then you might want to try this ROM!
Personal remarks to release of v2.0:Quote:Originally Posted by Stefan GündhörPDroid Enabler for Gueste2X GoodBye v2.0R -- all versions
As a matter of fact some people still might be enjoying Gingerbread, so for those I decided to finally offer a PDroid patch for this ROM (thanks to carburano who linked me the right PDroid patcher version that finally worked).
I've always wanted to offer this ROM with PDroid compatibility and now I can do so.
It still is a smooth ROM, it still is a stable ROM, it still offers good battery and a nice NVFlash installer for those wanting a clean setup or coming from ICS.
So for those still using it: Enjoy
Q: What is PDroid? - A: A cool privacy protection tool for restricting app permissions -- made by svyat ; here is his thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1357056
Q: How can I use PDroid on GoodBye ROM v2.0R? - A: First load the PDroid enabler for the ROM and flash it with CWM (no wipes required or if you want then wipe dalvik). After this load PDroid app from Market and enjoy!
Also I've uploaded the latest guestekrnL Aroma kernel installer to the upload folder of this ROM as well. The latest guestekrnL compiled with spica-toolchain is already included in v2.0R ROM, but you might want to give the version compiled with flix-toolchain a try, it is a bit smoother.
I decided to revive my GoodBye ROM and make a new version (v2.0) one more time. There are already a couple of very good Stock ROMs out there like Django Manouche, so basically another one is not really necessary.
However, I hate unfinished work and the last version of this ROM was very unstable, so I finally decided to fix it and make it stable again.
I completely re-worked the GoodBye ROM with focus on maximum smoothness, performance while still being stable, hopefully providing good battery and being light-weight.
Many experiences in tweaking and similar stuff I made during the last year have been helpful in creating GoodBye v2.0.
v2.0 is how I personally want a ROM to be, which doesn't mean it will be perfect for everyone, but it should at least be a solid base for good user experience.
