Hi all,

I know this is a very long and old thread, but after playing around with installing this rom for 3 days, I thought I might be able to ask a question. I never like to just throw pointless questions that can be sorted with a simple search, so I've been doing that, but to no avail.

To the point: I've installed the rom with most of the bloat left out and the 8 kernel installed. No matter what I do with Magisk, it refuses to pass any SafetyNet checks, either one. I've tried all the steps in order from the "best practices" page by topjohnwu on his github page, I've searched this entire thread multiple times, and still there is nothing I have not tried to get this to pass. On top of that, it seems as though at least one of the apps I had on my fully stock rom now will not install from the Play Store, as it is now flagged "not compatible", and the lowest version stated is Android 4.3. Obviously, this rom is well above that, so I'm not sure what's going on.

I'm at my wits' end with this, and though I absolutely detest the bloat of the stock rom, I think I might have to go back. If anyone has any ideas, I'd love to hear them, and I accept that I'm just begging for free help here, and may not be heard. I love the rom, want it to work very badly, but it doesn't seem that I may be able to use it as a daily driver. Wish I could, as I know MESA has very generously worked on this for a long time. So, thank you MESA for your work. Just wish it would work for me.

If you are using Magisk 19.3 safetynet won't pass. I personally still use 18.1 and it works fine for me. Can't really help with the google play situation right now unfortunately.

Hey MESA, thanks for your reply. That makes sense to me, since during the process, it seemed like one of the times I installed your ROM, it was passing the checks, and I couldn't figure out for the life of me what I was doing differently. It was probably that I was using the Magisk you provided that first time. Of course, Magisk then helpfully offered to update itself, and that was that.

Sadly, the Play Store issue makes it impossible to pair my wireless earbuds (they are Samsung, with many hoops to jump through, and they will not pair without their silly app), so I am forced for now to go back to bloated full stock. :mad: At some point, I will likely just find the apk and cross-load it manually to get around that.

I really appreciate your response, and all the work you've done on this ROM, even if I can't use it at the moment; I'm definitely keeping it on my hard drive. Your work on the old G3 has kept mine running happy all these years, so I raise a cold glass of something nice in your direction.

hunh. That didn't go well.

I went ahead and successfully rooted... TWRP installed along with superusersu.
I did my wipe, then tried to flash CleanROM.

After about 4 seconds into the flashing, the phone rebooted and now I'm stuck at the initial LG screen. Waiting did not help. I cannot get back into recovery via phone controls.

UPDATE:
I reflashed stock 30d via LG Flash Tool.
Any idea of what might have gone wrong?
I do know that on previous version of CleanRom, I ran into a problem of using a newer version of TWRP that was incompatible... I didn't scour the thread to see if that was fixed on the later releases, could that have been the problem?

@Braaainz, hard to say really because you haven't mentioned what version of TWRP you were using. Could be that the TWRP was too new or the version you used doesn't support AROMA. But we can only guess.

I just got my fourth D851. Downgraded to 30D via LGUP, rooted, and TWRPed. I still use MultiROM-TWRP 3.2.1. Since I multiboot I haven't tried any newer TWRP.
Alas, friggin' phone suffers from the dreaded "SIM card removed" issue, constantly. Ugh.

Thanks. I just used TWRP 3.0.0 just now and it seemed to install without any hiccups.

You have TWRP 3.3.1 available on the G3 android development thread , afaik there are no drawbacks from upgrading
I'm using that for a while without problems. In this version I can mount partitions in recovery mode when phone is encrypted. In previous versions I couldn't.

Last time I used latest CleanROM on my D850 (a few months ago) i was having issues receiving MMS messages. Sometimes, randomly, received MMS messages would get stuck on "downloading" then "download failed" then I would click "retry download" and then it still would never download. So I was missing a bunch of MMS messages.. Anybody else have this issue?

Sorry can't help with this one. Looked at it some time ago but couldn't find what needs to be changed.

You have 2 options. First: flash Magisk 18.1 and just install the latest Magisk Manager. This is what I am currently using. Second: in Magisk Manager turn off Magisk Hide in the settings and enable it again. This makes safetynet pass on my G3. Downside is that it needs to be done after every reboot.

Hallo @MESA, and a Happy New Year to all of you!


Does this ROM still receive updates with security patches? I would like to give this one a try because of the stock camera (which is not available on e.g. LOS 16.0 and many other custom ROMs, as far as I understand it).

Not really. Stock ROM is out of support for a long time now.

From your personal experience, do you have a recommendation for a (custom and/or close-to-stock) ROM that still receives security patches and supports stock camera (LG GET D855)? I would not mind to use a not-up-to-date Android version as long is there is still support ongoing regarding security patches. Thanks once more and please accept my apologies if this is too OT here.

Not really. I mean I've tried for example latest version of LOS for a while but I always go back to stock since I don't really care about the security updates and because I have all the phone's features available.

I second this. Somehow I always end up back on Fulmics (which I am stuck on now) or Clean ROM. CandyROM 7.1 is my favorite non-stock rom otherwise. Anyway... With 2016 out-of-date security updates just be sure to use AdAway, 1st party updated apps, and dont download anything shady or go to shady websites. Unless somebody is actively singling you out and attempting to hack and exploit your phone and only your phone you should be ok. Anyway battery life is superb as well as camera quality. Worst part is install time of apps on MM lol... But after initial setup who cares.

Thanks, guys, for sharing your thoughts. So Fulmics and CleanRom could be alternatives for stock ROM for me? Not for up-to-date security patches but for some additional stuff that might be nice? And stock LG G3 camera works on those two as well? I am included to try these or to directly go back to stock MM.


@hedgecore44
I do have Adaway and MinminGuard on my devices, and I am usually connected via VPN to home, where I am running pihole. Finally, I use ublock in browsers and AF+ that blocks all apps where I see no reason for "calling home". ;)


@MESA
According to your first post, it is not necessary to first flash a clean stock ROM. Or would I expect problems coming directly from LOS 16.0?

Yes, these are alternatives for stock and the stock LG G3 camera works on both of these. You will get some additional tweaks and will still have the LG stock features as well. With Af+, a VPN, uBlock, and AdAway I IMO would not worry about the most up-to-date security updates at all. Thats just me. If you have some enemy singling you out and attempting to hack you maybe over bluetooth or something thats another story lol... ....... You do not need to load a clean stock ROM first. I just went from LOS 16 to Fulmics and I have had no problems. Just follow the ROMs instructions for installation.

Ta!


PS @MESA
When flashing with the latest available TWRP (as recommended in your first post), will encryption of the LG G3 (internal + external) be supported? I remember that other ROM/TWRP combos failed to decrypt (mounting impossible), that is why I ask.

    FAQ

    1. Can I do something to get cooler temperatures? (Synapse && Xceed kernel required)

    If you want to get some cooler temperatures do this:
    • In Synapse set max. cpu frequency to 1728 MHz - this only underclocks the first 2 cores. Other 2 are using stock frequency - 2457 MHz. Same goes for overclock at 2649 MHz.
    • Set some Undervolt and Undercurrent (test what is best for your phone). I personally do -70UV and -28UA.
    2. How to remove understood message in Synapse?
    • Select your frequency in synapse and tick the apply button - then you have to reboot or power off/on the phone and message will be gone. You need to do this after every reboot.
    TIP: About Undervolt and Undercurrent:
    • When you reboot or power off/on the phone settings will be set to default(this is a safety measure if you Undervolt too much and make the device unstable).
    3. Can I get UX5 support?
    • I'm not adding UX5 support for this ROM. But you can use other mod's and apps to get it.
    4. I still get the cust-error at boot. What should I do? (D855 only)
    • Select None option in aroma installer.
    • Select the Universal Cust.
    5. I get FC in some apps. What should I do?
    • Don't select the new GPU drivers in AROMA installer.

    Clean ROM 2.8 is out!

    Changelog:
    • Magisk v15.3
    • LG Smart Settings
    • LG UX5, UX6 Home
    • Removed LG RCT from kernel
    15 January 2018 - I uploaded 2.8 again. Contains latest Magisk 15.3 and removed RCT from kernel.

    I want to thank all the people using the ROM - 2.7 has 3000+ downloads! Really great!
    If you enjoy the ROM, click thanks on this post and in OP. :)
    I suggest people to update because I won't do new releases anytime soon. :)
    13
    Clean ROM 2.7 added to OP.

    Finally it's released :D. Here is the changelog:
    • Magisk v14.3
    • Xceed bld8e - D855, D850 only
    • 5x7 LG Home grid
    • 6 QuickSettings Tiles
    • Enable Smart Bulletin Widgets
    • Sound Boost tweak
    • Adobtable Storage option in aroma
    • Improved Extreme debloating
    • F400K/L/S support
    • LS990 support
    • US990 support
    I'd like to point out some changes made for some models:

    D855:
    • This version uses different a kdz. It's still v30G odexed base but it's from Spain(Telefonica) instead of Germany(O2). I switched because actuallly Telefonica owns O2 and OU(other region in which v30G is released).
    • Switched to stock v21C modem. It's not using the hybrid one. No difference to be honest, although other model zip's use hybrid modems. Only D851 uses stock MM mode because of it's unlocked bootloader.
    • Added option to remove cust in aroma. If anyone has issues with region or disappearing app's, try it. :)
    D852:
    • The big difference here is that there is only one zip for all carriers. User can select - 'Bell', 'Rogers', Telus', 'Videotron' from aroma installer instead of 4 different zip's.
    • The ROM base is v30H from Bell. This need to be tested because I didn't try it, but everything should work fine. Report issues in thread.
    F400K/L/S | LS990 | D855 | US990:
    This is a zip for some more models which are not supported by Xceed kernel. They use stock kernel.
    • ROM base is v30A with March 2017 security patch(latest base released for D855, the deodexed one).
    • This zip needs to be tested. Only D855 is working fine. I can't fix any big issues, but it's worth the try for other models. Don't expect big support for them by me.

    I wanted to release it with a new Magisk update but I guess that's not happening soon. Maybe I'll reupload with new magisk in future. :)
    I also want to say thanks for the interest in the ROM. I mean v2.6 has over 4000 downloads(in total). I hope people enjoy using the ROM and have a fast and stable stock experience(that's the idea). (^_^)
    11
    Clean ROM 2.6 is in OP.

    Nothing really new except new magisk. I updated all to 2.6 because I released a D852 variant.
    D851 one has less img files to flash, same as others. Tell me if this works fine, if not, I will release a new zip with all img files as before.
    D852 support is from Telus kdz for now. There are 3 more carriers. I will release an build for each one, if this one works fine. Someone need to test and report, otherwise I won't make 3 new zips if I'm not 100% sure they work.
    D850 - Removed only the permission_label app. No changes, same as D855.

    I also release this because I won't have any time soon for another, if something new come up will update.

    I wanna say thanks to everyone who is enjoying the rom and give good feedback. :):good:

    About the Mcafee - download it from here - link from mega and tell me if it works. (apk is from d855 30g odex).
