I figured out how to full flash the LG Ally 740 to cricket but 3 out of every 5 phones I flash do not save the NV settings. When I go to manual programming (##program740 send) then select DATA. The MIP & DUN MIP settings always revert back to the default firstname.lastname@example.org settings. I've changed them in LGNPST,CDMA Workshop & QPST but still reverts back to VZW. It's rooted and tried several different ROM's to fix the problem. Could it be the kernel? If anyone can help, please let me know.
Another n00b needing some tips/assistance... I spent hours the other night trying to figure out just how to flash my LG Ally to Cricket, to no avail. I've never flashed anything to anything before, so I'm trying to understand the whole process at the same time. There's a lot of vague info on the forums about doing this on the Ally, but nothing clear, yet. I rooted my phone (thanks to amoamare's AllyRR) and tried using 3 programs to gain access to changing PRLs, etc: CDMA Workshop, LGNPST, and QPST. None of them could correctly identify my phone (and yes, I had USB debugging on). It seems to me LG has added a layer of protection to prevent using these tools. My guess is that those of you out there who know how to code (I'm not included) can use ADB Shell or something else to modify PRLs, etc. on a rooted phone.
I've already flashed the prl and have the phone programmed on cricket but it seems like the data settings are locked. Im trying to change them to fully flash the lg ally and I also need to figure out how to change the mms settings.
I noticed many of the links around here are on low speed servers, Personally I fount it annoying. So I collected a whole bunch of links for various things and put them on my private server. I was able to Download at about 6MB/s.

My LG Ally is stuck at the "VELOCITY" boot screen and is stuck in a loop. I had Velocity 0.3 flashed yesterday and I decided to re-flash today. I have tried wiping data/files/cache/dalvik cache. I'm stuck and I don't know what to do. Also I never did a Nandroid backup (because I'm slow).
i am trying to flash velocity rom on my ally but everytime i goto rom manager it reboots my phone and when it looks like its going to go into recovery( theres a triangle and !) it just procedes to boot up like normal.
Is there any way to remove keyboard shortcuts for a rooted phone? For instance, while texting i sometimes press ALT+DEL and it removes the whole line i was typing. Kind of frustrating. So if there were a way to remove those shortcuts through terminal or modifying files that would be great
Before applying the Turbo4 ROM, I ran Linpack to get a base number so I can compare it with the number I get after I apply Turbo4. I got a 4.188. The phone is rooted with many of the stock apps removed running the Zeam Launcher, but no other custom ROMS.
Is that a pretty good number to start with? It was higher than I was expecting because most linpack scores i've read about are in the 3's.
Im trying to flash after update.. i have rom manager and downloaded volacity and it reboots shows droid with warning sign and it just reboots and verizon logo pops up and everything is the same am i doing something wrong.. and i did wipe data
I am using the turbo4 kernel and want to flash velocity, but noticed that on the thread for V3 there is a version modified to work with v3. I don't want to sound stupid, but is that one any different from the one I have? Do I have to flash the one from the Velocity thread before I can install velocity? Just trying keep things simple and reduce the chance for errors.
I tried to load velocity using ROM manager and it would boot, but it got force quit messages repeatedly before I could do anything else so I tried holding volume down, home, and send together and it flashed a screen quickly with the little android guy and a progress bar and then after that it won't go past the android logo. I tried using the LG-utility to flash it but it gives me errors and it wont flash it. What can I do besides run the thing over and get a new phone from insurance?
Just for fun and to see what I could score...I tried it. Well, I only scored a measly 278. I've read on here of other Ally owners getting 300 up to 525. So, my question is, what would cause my low score and if you guys wouldn't mind. go ahead n post up YOUR Quadrant scores.
I downloaded this multitouch tester to my allygand if you put one finger in the uper right and one on the lower left the bring the right down and the left up you get major misrepresentation of were the phone thinks your fingers actualy are!
I use my Ally mainly as phone/email device and do just about 10 mins of browsing web a day. Under this kind of usage, battery level goes to about 50% after 12hrs from unplugging the charger. With some more browsing, it can get down to 33% easily in 12 hours. I guess it will be dead by 18 hours this way. I wonder how you guys batteries are doing compared to mine. I wish it lasts a bit longer than this.
I bought a DVD Ripper program from Pavtube to convert some DVD movies for my phone.Since this is the first time I've ever tried this, I wanted to make sure I was using the best settings.For anyone who has ever converted a movie, these are the settings i've been using.Should I change any of them?The one movie I tried had some minor artifacting, but I thought that might be due to the conversion esizing more than the settings so I wanted to check what others suggest I use.
Hello everyone. The Ally is my first Android phone and to be honest, I absolutely love it. I have rooted (Using AllyRR), and have installed a custom rom (Velocity0.1.1).I am interested in trying the "USB Host" that I have heard about and was wondering how to do it.
Ok, the family has Allys I am trying to convince them to let me flash Velocity to their phones, But they think I will kill their phones. Would there be a good noticeable speed difference, Battery life? Any other odd perks I can use to convince them?
Cause they are always complaining about how it is slow.
Alright ive been searching for a couple days now for a tutorial on how to flash to cricket but i just cant find anything.nobody locally knows how to do it, google searching all day gets me nowhere and im seriously starting to give up hope and might just pack my bags and go back to the iphone while i haven't sold it yet. can someone PLEASE give me a link to how to flash an evo to cricket, or explain to me how to do it. are the videos on how to root it of any importance here? im assuming you need to root it then change the carrier settings after that, but i just cant find out what to do after rooting.
