One thing we probably are gonna have to do is to have a wipe-update. I want to move the certs on some parts (e.g. framework res) to SDK certs to make customising and skinning easier... and this means a wipe.

This will let us apply a stock Froyo look, use stock contacts / dialer, theme easier and much more, so it IS worth it. Probably coming for r4, thank goodness for Titanium Backup. :D

In all seriousness - The screen backlight value is editable throgh native android widgets, locale, widgetsoid etc. so it must be accessible to some extent. Given that Widgetsoid is able to show the current settting, the numerical value must be readable. So "all" you need to do would be adding an option in the button backlight app that would read the screen brightness value instead of the value input by the user :D

Yeah, i'm hearing you, it should indeed be possible. I'll add it as a 'possible future project'. :D

Cool ROM!! Thanks Paul.

After playing around with it, is so smooth :D

Quadrant scoring at average 2800 :D

Just wondering, is is possible to test the ROM with Android Emulator, I am hoping to learn how to customise ROM, and any handy tips/advise would be good :(

Not really, I guess it's kinda possible, but not ideal (I wouldn't do it)...

Small question:

You can upload a zip file contain apps you wanna use in your custom rom. But for let's say gosms and go launcher ex what dir structure do i need to make? I cant find the apps with a file explorer so they are probably installed on an other mount point.

/system/apps contains the normal standard apps , can i put them in there? Or is it something else?

Im still amazed at how LG managed to make the lockscreen lag on this phone... it lags more than the htc lockscreen on my old htc hero....

Thanks for getting the Custom ROMs started Paul!

Quick q on this ROM... I'm a frequent user of Voice Dialer and I am missing the feature of

initiating it from my BT headset on this ROM... do you know if it's do-able/fixable?

data/app

Not /data/app as data isn't written by this ROM.

But when I do, I get this massage.

Fr4 is now in the kitchen.

A WIPE IS MANDATORY FOR Fr4! Apologies, but this is unavoidable for this release. I recommend using Titanium Backup to back up your data. Wipe BEFORE installing the ROM.

I am updating the changelog now... :D
