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 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 email@example.com 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 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.
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?
I was quite excited to have flash on my mobile devise and as I have an unlimited subscription to Lovefilm I was looking forward to watching the on demand movies for free. But I was disappointed when I was met by the message "does not support this type of flash". Is there an update or an app I can use? Lovefilm uses Flash Player 10.
"-Baseband Version VS740MVB.5210.1015: (new radio.img) Flash this just like a kernel. You must reboot into recovery once more after installing to wipe your cache. *Only flash once! I cannot be held liable for any damage caused to your device by flashing this!" If you back rev to Velocity 0.2 from Velocity 0.3, do you need to redo the Baseband update, or is it permanent?
I recently rooted my phone. That went fine, I got the fancy # prompt without too much trouble. So I installed ROM Manager and got the ClockworkMod Recovery img. When I hit reboot into recovery from ROM Manager it booted to the LG boot screen and wouldn't go anywhere past that. I freaked thinking I was bricked. I left my phone alone for like 4 or so hours and it was fine thankfully. So I pretty much stayed away from fancy stuff like that for the past week.
Then this new firmware update comes out.
My question is... If i install the new OTA update will I lose my root access? I've read about situations where people lose their root then gain it back, I'm just curious if this is the path I will have to follow.
I have a backup of my stock ROM with root access and I'm not running any custom ROMs.
My Ally updated Thursday with no issues. I have observed a noticeable increase in responsiveness. Noticeable! No app issues. I did uninstall some new apps it placed on my phone like Skype. Battery life seems to be as good or better than prior to the update. I'm a light user. A couple of calls per day, some internet (Dolphin HD) and some texting. I recharge it every other day when battery level gets down to about 30%. I use ADW.Launcher, Juice Defender, no app killer, a couple of low overhead widgets, Chomps SMS, Pandora, and not much else other than a few shortcuts. I do have a widget for airplane mode. I turn it on once a day then reboot and turn it back on.
So the other day I noticed my phone said "an update is available" so I updated, while rooted. I noticed after the update that none of my rooted apps work anymore. I unrooted and re-rooted. Nothing. Help? I'm stuck with the superuser appand can't get rid of it. I tried a factory reset and it didn't work...
I know you can rename outraces.zip to cancel the notification, but I have heard that makes the phone think the update is corrupt and it continuously tries to download it. I would like to have Velocity 0.2 on my phone but I cannot stand the constant nagging to update. I have tried flashing VZB and going back and the notifications still appear. Has anyone managed to stop the notifications?
I have my lg Ally with the new Jit kernel (Thanks Drellisdee), with Velocity 0.2 (Thanks Trident) and am overclocking at 768 mhz. I want to apply the new update, VZB, and then put velocity and the jit kernel back. So my thoughts are that I would have to...
1.) Backup rom/Apps/Data (Titanium Backup/ROM Manager) 2.) Go into Recovery (Clockworkmod) and make a nendroid backup. 3.) Wipe Dalvik, data, and cache. 4.) Install vzb via Drellisdee's rooted update (After i check md5) 5.) Then Apply Velocity 0.2 6.) Apply the kernel 7.) Restore data from titanium backup...
Is this what I would do? What about the ally's unofficial "V9" update that has to be installed manually... Is that worth it or should I just do VZB? Also, do I need to go to a stock rom proior to the update?
Well so my phone tried to update to what I assume may have been Froyo but it failed due to the bug in the recovery 1.2.2 it would not accept a verified signature. I then went to go find the update again only to find out that my system claimed to be up to date and my phone was still at 2.1 update 1.
I did a factory reset and wiped sd card all to try and get the new update to work although what happens is it begins to install only to freeze and give me the android figure with hazard sign, what do I need to do to get this frekin update?
I don't keep up that much with the latest and greatest for my Ally but this morning I saw a system update notice and decided to go ahead and update. It seemed to go smooth enough but as the post title suggests my Google Navigation crashes back to the boot screen whenever I try and use the app.
Okay so I had a problem with an app, it would never download and stay at the installing progress bar for days. I looked up the solution online and they told me to go to Settings>Applications>Manage Applications>Market>Uninstall Updates. I did that and now I have the old version on the Market, so I don't have automatic updating and there is no "Update All" button, so I can't do that either. I tried rebooting my phone, no luck. Unrooting and rebooting, still no luck. How can I update back to the newest version?
I have been working on a update-script for updating the radio without the vzc update. mainly for rooted users. however i cant seem to get the update-script to work properly. Im typing my update-script in gedit on ubuntu 10.10 because i dont trust windows with it since it wont understand linux spacing. anything i should do different? here is a pastebin with the 3 i have tried with minor tweaks. none have worked.
First script: write_radio_image PACKAGE:radio. - Update-script/radio update
Ive been fighting with this for 2 days straight and i dont wanna give up.
First i want to apologize if this is explained somewhere.I could figure it out.I cant find the Ally in the model list on either the LG website for mobile support or the LG mobile support tool download. How do i set it up for the ally? Or is it even possible at this point in time?I've read that people use it but i cant figure out how they set it up.Once again i apologize if this is a repeat topic but any information would be greatly appreciated.
My fathers phone got the OTA update to version 8 ever since his vibrate functions in games ringers etc has just vanished. The phone has been reset via settings>privacy>factory data reset twice. And i still cant get the vibrate functions from haptatic keyboard or ringers to work. He needs the vibration stuff back for work. If i cant figure it out it will have to be returned as nonfunctioning so unless im totally missing something
this is all of our first android phones my 2 sisters and my mothers ota worked fine i have the v9 update from the updater but my father ota just messed up i guess
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.
