now that i have root can someone tell me what bloat apps i can safely remove and how/what i would use to remove them? thanks!!!!

Go back a few pages to post 300 or so, or search this thread. This has been discussed several times on this thread already. There's a list of current apps that are safe to remove manually, and a scrip that can remove them for you :)

Has anybody tried switching ART on this phone?i tried last night and had to factory reset as phone became unresponsive because of low internal space..i think i should have tried back after factory reset but just ended up restoring apps from the backup.

I tried it after a factory rest after I rooted. everything was pretty good. I could tell a difference. but I switched it back to dalvik since I read art cant be enabled if you're going to be using xposed

ART eats up more space than our little 1gb and change of user storage can handle. ART precompiles all your apks, while dalvik does just-in-time compilation and caches only frequently used compiled objects.

so what happens if I do the factory reset, change to ART and then one by one, restore my apps and move to the external storage by using say Link2SD? will the app be pre-compiled and moved? or ART takes into consideration the apps that are only available when you change from delvik?

Just an update, I have hit a brick wall on development for this device. I have already built cwm recovery for this phone but have to find a way to get it working with 2nd init recovery. If anyone knows of any developers who have worked with 2nd init before please send them my way.

If i'm not mistaken it was hroark that ported it. I will see if I can find a way to contact him

I'm wishing you the best of luck. I'm hoping someone is able to find a way to get a custom recovery to work for this phone, because I'd love to see what kind of custom ROMs people can make for it.

I'm sorry for bringing this up again, because I know how many times its been brought up, but how do I get minitool partition wizard to read my 16gb sdcard with the usb cable?

With the usb cable?are you trying to format the sd card by leaving it in the phone?if so,remove the sd card from phone and then try to format it.

If it is not being recognized you might need to format it. I don't know if this will help, but here is a quick tutorial on how to use minitool partition wizard. Hope it helps!

Yes I'm trying to partition it with it in my phone. I'd use the SD card adapter (I wouldn't have any trouble if I did), but I have no idea where I put it so I'm trying to do it while its in the phone, but the partition wizard can't find it even though the computer reads it fine.

You can do it on the phone with an app called 'a parted' on the play store.

    [CWMR][MS323] CWM 6.0.5.0 For LG L70

    This recovery is for the LG L70 (MS323). It has been tested and works 100%.

    This wouldn't be possible without junkie2100 and PlayfulGod, be sure to thank them also ;)

    and last but not least, koush.

    DISCLAIMER: I am not responsible for anything that can happen to your device when using this. Your phone = Your responsibility. Your booloader MUST be unlocked to use this.

    NOTE: I am still waiting on a firmware B tester to test the key combo to boot to recovery. For all you firmware B users, be careful not to brick your device because the key combo has not been confirmed working for y'all yet :)

    The Goods

    Instructions:

    Fastboot users

    Download the recovery.img to your computer and open up terminal or command prompt and cd to the directory where the recovery.img is.

    Example:
    Windows
    Code:
    cd Downloads
    Linux
    Code:
    cd ~/Downloads

    Now that you are in the recovery.img's directory, boot into fastboot mode by powering off the device, from power off, plug in your usb, power on the device, as soon as it starts to boot, release the power button and hold volume up until in fastboot mode.

    Now in terminal or command prompt, type:
    Code:
    fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    Reboot
    Code:
    fastboot reboot
    Once booted, go download this awesome app to make rebooting to recovery easy, HERE

    People who restored the laf partition, follow these steps:

    Place the recovery.img in the root of your internal sd card.

    Open up command prompt or terminal and type:
    Code:
    adb shell
    Code:
    su

    Now it is time to overwrite your stock recovery with cwm, type:
    Code:
    dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/recovery

    That's it, download this awesome app to reboot to recovery HERE

    Keep in mind, when rebooting from recovery, it will ask you to do 2 things, select no for the first option and select yes for fix root or you will lose your root. To boot to recovery you would use the same key that is used to factory reset, from power off, you boot and press volume down

    That's it for the recovery, hope everyone enjoys it :) If you would like to donate, you can click the little donate picture in my signature and send me some money for an energy drink :p

    [UNLOCK][MS323] LG L70 Bootloader Unlock

    This is the method I used to unlock the bootloader of the LG L70 on MetroPCS. This has worked for me and will work for you if you follow the instructions and read this guide :)

    DISCLAIMER: I am not responsible for anything that may happen when unlocking your bootloader. Your device = Your responsibility.

    Credits: junkie2100, PlayfulGod, LoneStar, Cheetopocalypse, bobdamnit, BlastGT1, jonhaney, daddyof3_101, biggiephil and lady vengeance (sorry if I forgot someone).

    What you need:

    Windows users, you need fastboot and adb installed. All of which is included in the zip for part 1. Linux users, same for you, I have included the adb and fastboot binary but I had a problem with the adb not working in the package, might be something I edited in the shell script so install adb in your bin directory (I can help if needed).

    NOTE: Must have busybox installed on your device, have USB debugging enabled, and the phone plugged in and set as charge only.

    Part 1:

    Windows Users

    1. Download the bootloader.zip and extract it to your Desktop.
    Mirror link: HERE


    2. Open the bootloader folder and press shift + right click, select "Open Command Window here".

    3. In command prompt, type:
    Code:
    laf_script.bat
    (Hit enter and the first step will start)

    Be sure to pay attention to the command window to make sure you are not having any problems. That is it for part 1, go to part 2 :)[/align]

    Linux Users

    1. Download the bootloader.zip and extract it to your Desktop
    Mirror link: HERE


    2. Open terminal with ctrl + alt + t and cd to the folders directory.
    Code:
    cd ~/Desktop/bootloader_unlock_part1

    3. In the folder, right click the laf_script_linux.sh file, go to properties, and allow the file to execute as program.

    4. Now in terminal, type:
    Code:
    ./laf_script_linux.sh

    Done with part 1, pay attention to the terminal and be sure everything is working correctly.[/align]

    Windows and Linux users, if you had everything setup correctly before running this, you should have a backup of the laf.img in the directory you ran the script from. If you have checked your script directory and your adb directory located on the C drive for windows (If you didn't use the ones I included) and you still don't have a backup of the laf partition, hastebin the output of terminal or command prompt and link me to it.

    Part 2:

    Windows and Linux Users

    1. Power off your device

    2. With the device powered off, plug in your usb to your computer, power on and hold volume up until in fastboot mode. If your phone boots to download mode then something didn't work right, be sure you followed every instruction in part 1.

    3. Open Command prompt or terminal and cd to the same directory as your scripts, once there, type:
    Code:
    fastboot devices
    (Hit enter)
    Be sure that your device is listed, it should be random numbers.
    Code:
    fastboot oem unlock

    4. Verify that your bootloader is indeed unlocked:
    Code:
    fastboot oem device-info

    That is it, you are now unlocked ;) Keep in mind that download mode is now gone, so if your brick then fastboot is your only option. If you would like to restore download mode as soon as you unlock your device, you can do this:

    cd to the directory where your backup of the laf partition is
    Code:
    cd ~/Desktop/bootloader_unlock_part1

    Push the img to your sdcard
    Code:
    adb push laf.img /sdcard/

    Use adb shell & su
    Code:
    adb shell
    Code:
    su

    Overwrite the zeroed out partition
    Code:
    dd if=/sdcard/laf.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/laf

    Done, hope y'all enjoy this. If you would like to show me some support, you can do so by clicking the donate link in my signature, all donations will be appreciated :) Be sure to keep your username in the correct field so I can personally thank you.

    Hi all,
    Please hit thanks to below post, so that I can build a strong case to get us a forum: we have so much redundant information here, so its a high time we should have our own forum.

    Hello everyone,

    Thread cleaned to get it back on track.
    This is just a general reminder to all. No one is to ask for ETAs here or anywhere else on this site. No one is entitled to anything. These roms and/or mods take time to do and at times it's a struggle to find enough time to do them for everyone. Please keep in mind, that people have personal lives that come first before anything else that is going on on this website.
    Please respect that and respect each other.

    Regards...
