Hi,
I have cloudy 3.3 on my D800 phone working on T-mobile. Everything works great except for two things.
1. Signal is very poor. I have another phone (one plus) that has much better tmo signal but this phone has a problem. Wondering if there is a setting I missed. In reading around, I read about Aroma, but not sure if I encountered it when installing this Rom.

2. Cannot use Android Pay. I understand its probably cause I am rooted. Any chance of it working if I remove root now?

Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Yes, it works. After several unsuccessful attempts (either stuck on black screen, or an endless bootloop), I was able to flash it on my D803, coming from a rooted stock 4.4.2. Key point: flash the KK baseband before flashing the ROM. It wasn't clear for me, until another good soul here at XDA mentioned that specifically. You also should have a KK bootloader installed.


Soooo, I have a kk bootloader installed already.
Running cm 12.1
On a kk modem.
This goes to a blank screen. dark as pitch.

I've tried :
twrp latest blatagastrorear. (sorry for that one)
flash baseband
flash rom --> fail

Wipe all and data
flash baseband
flash rom --> fail

Wipe all, again
flash rom
flash baseband --> fail again

SIGH

I never tried flashing this ROM coming from CM; only from stock. As I have pretty much zero experience with CM (some experiments years back don't count), I don't know if that actually makes a difference, but have a feeling it might...

Guys, I'd like to ask a question. I have used the KDZ method to flash my phone to stock 30b firmware (open europe 32gb). Then i rooted the phone again and installed cloudyG2 3.3. Can anyone help me with a modem question? How can i know if the modem installed with the original KDZ is still present? Does the cloudyg2 overwrites the modem? If yes, what is the modem region? Can i acquire the europe modem from the KDZ file and flash it over the current one?

Thank you!

hi
was trying to flash cloudyg2 3.3 coming from ressurection remix. Since this one needed kk bootloaders i went and used this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/lg-g2/general/d802-bootloader-changer-1-1-jb-kk-lp-t3104380
to flash kk bootloader... flashed the cloudy rom and rebooted... now its stuck at LG logo and i cant even get into recovery...
any ideas??

You were supposed to choose lollipop. I use that zip too. You choose the one which is for your android version of the rom. Not the bootloader you want.

Hey, I have a question for you.
I'm using a Cloudy G2 rom for a while and have one small issue.
The Peeking (Heads-Up) notification don't work on my WhatsApp? On other apps it works.
I've red that app developer needs to add the certain priority, like this:
setPriority(PRIORITY_MAX)

To make Heads-Up work.
Can I edit that manually? To decompile WhatsApp.apk and find that settings? Can you guide me where could I find it?

Thank you

i'm running blisspop on my vs980- screen on time is pretty bad - i want to try cloudyg2 3.3

i went to blisspop from stock 5.0.2 39A firmware - i had bumped twrp 2.8.7.1 and i had to flash bumped lolipop bootstack by nevax - don't know whether i'm on lolipop or kitkat bootloader
i never tried any rom other than these 2 - some required lokified which may create problems with my display ( had white line issue - a serious headache )


so to install cloudy, do i need to flash any bootstack or use bootloader changer - i don't want to brick my device ( as i faced it before )

~my previous device was galaxy s3 mini for which changing rom was easy ( never bricked in 2 years )~

I wonder if anyone have problem like mine with G2 F320L? After installing Cloudy 3.3 after reboot LG logo shows for a brief second, then screen goes black ant that's it. Tried bootloader changer, the best effect I got was LG logo just staying on the screen, but the phone is just not going into the further boot phase, led is not flashing, it just freezes on the LG logo. What is wrong?

    I dont think so, Dori.

    chargerlogo is a binary always been there in the ramdisk by default. The rom use stock kernel so it remained untouched. And there's nothing about it in the system , maybe you mistaken a bit when seeing it in root folder (bc of ramdisk).
    Btw, I think that chargerlogo affect nothing if people using the default kernel or your custom kernel (if it cause issue, your custom kernel may already removed it, and again, if it cause the issue, all stock kernels have rebooting issue)

    Yep, i see that i should deal with this.
    This is a stock binary stuck in ramdisk in stock and my kernel.

    I will see how i can help, strange that i never seen its working on my device.
    But other roms custom.. reporting errors from it, and kernel reboot.
    Stock 30b is quiet...

    Sorry for disturbing you :)
    Its seems to be my problem now, haha.
    Where is my hammer.???

    I'm using RR 5.4.8 (lollipop 5.1.1).
    Can anyone tell me what I must flash to work on D802?
    In rom thread says that i must only do Full Wipe & Flash rom, but i I read, that some users have to flash another's zip to work rom properly.
    Btw What is bootstack? I search on google and xda, but i don't find the answer.

    Thank you for using the Q&A, as for the several posters above I'm glad they were moved here instead of the development section.

    Basically, the process is very simple. AOSP based roms are kept very simple and they mostly just flash /system files as well as a boot.bin (kernel). There are plenty of other files in your phone, like the recovery, bootloader, modem and others. These are NEVER touched by AOSP roms (unless specified).

    Sometimes, especially with locked bootloaders and restricted device sources, closed-source updates that come from the manufacturer (in this case, LG), update these very crucial folders/files to make them work with new firmware/software updates. This was the case when LG updated the G2 from Kitkat to Lollipop.

    When the official update came into place, they updated the rom (/system), updated the user apps (/data), updated the stock recovery, updated the bootloader to LP and updated a lot of other files/folders including the modem, laf, etc.

    All of these are essential to make a ROM work properly and not updating these causes issues (random reboots, no sound, no knock on, no GPS, etc). As there are many variants for this device, it's very difficult to keep track of what keeps breaking what.

    For this, devs have released a bootstack (a collection of files and folders which you can see here) for each variant that had an official Lollipop release. It updates the bootloader, modem and all the other partitions.

    The bootloader used however, is the KITKAT version, as the lollipop version has no exploit available to have a custom recovery on. Modem is usually LP, although some users report to use KitKat.

    So...what's next?

    If you're on stock lollipop, you NEED a KITKAT bootloader. Use autorec v2 from the playstore and then -> flash LP bootstack. This should get you the necessary bootloader and overwrite the already present LP files/modem
    If you're on stock kitkat, you already HAVE a KITKAT bootloader. If you're missing root, use autorec v1 found in the development section and you're missing what could possibly fix the issues mentioned above, stored in the LP files/modem -> flash LP bootstack.
    If you're on stock jellybean, you don't have EITHER a KITKAT bootloader or the LP modem/files -> flash LP bootstack

    Now here comes the interesting part

    If you're on AOSP without CAF sources, you're using a JELLYBEAN bootloader and have no LP modem/files. You need a KITKAT bootloader to flash CAF roms -> flash LP bootstack
    If you're on AOSP with CAF sources, you're using a KITKAT bootloader and you might or might not have LP modem/files. Might as well -> flash LP bootstack

    If you're still unsure, just read the official instructions (these do the same as the bootstack does, as updating to official lollipop will get you all the lollipop files, and flashing autorec v2 will downgrade the only thing you need, the bootloader, to the KITKAT version)

    Can I upgrade to this ROM from other LP ROM?
    - I dont know if your current ROM use the official partitions from LG LP releases or the modified one, this ROM requires org parts from LG. If you're not sure about that just kdz/tot back to Lollipop firmware, root, install AutoRec V2 (that support Lollipop) to get the recovery and flash the ROM like Installation guide above.

    Also, just in case, I realize cloudy's isn't an AOSP rom, but being a custom stock-based rom on the g2 with a locked bootloader, you can pretty much treat it like one. It does, however, offer the option to update the modem.

    When did this become a mess? During the introduction of CAF (qualcomm optimized branch for devices) sources for the G2. The ONLY issue with the LP-bootstack is when you try to flash older roms, that use a loki exploit found in the JELLYBEAN bootloader and patched on the KITKAT bootloader. This might require another bootstack, or not. No one really bothered to check compatibility with older versions and for good reason.

    I was having serious battery drain issue on my D800 and thank you Google for that :)

    Big thanks to @Alcolawl as he found a way to destroy the battery drain issue caused by Google Update Service.

    I packaged the script and please flash it from Recovery and enjoy few more hours of battery!

    Btw, it can be flashed for both CloudyG2 3.1 and 3.2.
