LG Ally :: Wired Tether - RNDIS Kernel (Free Alternative)

Oct 7, 2010

I wanted to know if there's a way to tether with the USB cable. I currently have Velocity v0.03 w/ drellisdee's GNM Turbo 4 kernel. The WiFi tether works fine but I want a way to tether with wired so it doesn't eat up my Ally's battery. I seen this: android-wired-tether - Project Hosting on Google Code. But it requires RNDIS kernel (or whatever it is), and apparently the kernel I have loaded doesn't have this. Any other options or is there I can get the RNDIS kernal on my Ally? Yes, I realize it requires an app. I'm asking for a free alternative and NOT a paid one.

LG Ally : Linpack Score On Stock Ally

Oct 6, 2010

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.

General :: Android Non-Stock Alternative Lockscreen

Oct 30, 2013

I am looking for a lockscreen replacement that does not act as an app. All the lockscreens that I have installed from the Play market, act as an app, and as soon as I kill background apps (long pressing the home button and clearing running apps) when I lock my phone again, and unlock it the lockscreen is gone. Why is this not happening with my stock lock screen? Why do they even have lockscreens in the App store if none of them work?

Android :: Alternative To Holding Down Home Button?

Sep 12, 2010

I was wondering if there is alternative to holding down home button to switch between apps. I was wishing that there is some app that shows all active app and if we click on it, it gets opened. Is there anything like that? Holding down home button only shows recently opened apps. Also, I am not fans of holding down buttons.

Android :: Scrollable Widgets In Alternative Home Apps

May 31, 2010

Many people would like to see scrollable widgets on their Home. As you may know, current Android stock Home doesn't support it, and HTC Sense doesn't provide any API.We propose to create an open source standard for an Home extension code allowing devs to create 3rd party widgets which support scrolling (list view).The principe have been implemented, and succesfully tested in Home++ and Pure messenger widget.Now, after discussing with other Home creators, we'd like to generalize this and include it in other Home applications. Few other Home applications devs are already integrating the Home++ code to evaluate this (FreedHome, Tag Home and HelixLauncher 1).Here is the list of interested parteners: - Helix Launcher - FreedHome - Tag Home - ADW Launcher - LauncherPro beta - GDE.During this first phase we'd like to focus on scrollable widgets but other extensions could be imagined (animations, gestures)If Google wants to use it for the next Android release, we would be very happy, but for now, the goal is to include it in a large number of alternative Home applications.

Android :: Alternative Home Replacement - Erase All Of Current Settings?

Nov 29, 2009

Looking at home replacements (leaning towards pandahome). I have what might be a dumb question...If I install one of these apps, will it erase all of my current settings, i.e. current location of apps, widgets, etc? Or will it just replace the current home and allow me to add more?

LG Ally :: How To Get Rid Of Stock Apps

Sep 29, 2010

So some idiot thinks it'd be cool if I had apps like Corporate Calendar, Amazon MP3, blah blah blah. Is there a way I can delete apps that just came on my phone so my menu is not 10 pages long? I hate clutter.

On somewhat the same note, the Verizon rep says to download Advanced Task Killer. Even when I kill some of these things they are immediately re-starting up. Then I thought I read somewhere that I shouldn't have ATK on my Android phone. Anyone wanna share the real deal?

LG Ally :: OTA Updates And Stock Recovery

Sep 25, 2010

I felt it was a bit hard to follow the directions posted on how to restore your recovery after clockwork or allyRR (custom recovery) on a rooted ally so that ota updates will work correctly.

-If you are not rooted install a app called astro from the market and install universal androot from your sdcard ( Universal Androot Beta )

Anyway, here is my simplified version. It was tested on windows 7 x64 and x86 props to drellisdee im just restating his work (http://androidforums.com/ally-all-things-root/146564-ally-recovery-img-here-custom-roms.html)

The file links are on his post and elsewhere on the fourm

-Download-
android sdk (found on official android site)
flash-image (needs to be unziped)
stock_recovery.img (thanks to drellisdee)

install android sdk to C:
install Lg Usbdriver - if needed copy flash_image to the root of your sdcard (remember to unzip it)
copy stock_recovery.img to the root of your sdcard

run cmd (windows command shell) as administrator by left clicking it

/ cd C:androidsdk ools (sdk's tools directory)

/ adb shell

/ $ su

you should have root # prompt on you phone, allow acess.

/ # mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system

/ # cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image

/ # chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image

/ # mount -o remount,ro -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system

/ # flash_image recovery /sdcard/stock_recovery.img

/ # reboot

now your done ... wasn't that easy....if you wanted to completely revert to a stock 'out of the box' ally flash the lg v6 rom first then fix your recovery second
thanks to death2all110(How-To: Flash Stock LG Rom)

Finally i have to recommend flashing first the vzb deodexed and radio rom, then velocity 2, then the new v4 jit oc kernel and install adw launcher and set cpu @ 740mhz for max performance/max stability if you want a rooted ally... personally i used allyRR to achieve this, it personally gives me less trouble than clockworkmod... all of these file can be found on this forum or market.

LG Ally : Have Completely Stock ROM That Would Upload

Aug 28, 2010

Would anyone happen to have a completely stock ROM that they would upload. I'm surprised it hasn't came up yet. When I first used metamorph I didn't realize I really had no way of going back to stock because I hadn't backed up my rom backed up before hand. I did back it up before I switched to velocity but it still has R1L on it.

LG Ally :: Restoring Stock Rom After Flashing With ROM Manager

Aug 28, 2010

I rooted my phone using Universal Androot (worked perfectly) and then proceeded to install ROM Manager to flash a custom ROM to my Ally. I used the Flash ClockworkMod Recovery first (sucessfully) then used Backup Current ROM to backup the stock (V8) ROM (sucessfully). I then proceeded to install the Velocity 0.1.1 ROM (sucessfully).

I've searched here a bit, and am unclear as to the process to restore my stock ROM using ROM Manager. I believe it would work as follows?:

Use Manage and Restore Backups. Select backup I made, and then restore.

If I wanted to un-root, I could then just use Universal Androot to un-root the phone (although I havent tried that part yet).

Love the ROM, just curious how to go back if I need to.
