This ROM is a ROM created with the MoDaCo Custom ROM Fr17 Online Kitchen.

It is stripped of the majority of the LG content and has all the Google bits and pieces added in. You can read more about MCR Fr7 in the link above - features for this ROM include..

  • Rebuilt, compressed and optimised with the MCR build system
  • Fully updated Google Components including...
    • Google STOCK Calendar
    • Google STOCK Car Home
    • Google STOCK Contacts
    • Google STOCK Desk Clock
    • Google STOCK Email
    • Google STOCK Gallery
    • Google STOCK LatinIme Input Method
    • Google STOCK Launcher
    • Google STOCK Live Wallpapers
    • Google STOCK Lockscreen
    • Google STOCK MMS
    • Google STOCK Music
    • and more!

    • Superuser application and su binary from ChainsDD for SAFE root functionality
    • Based on the 0622 release
    • Not odexed
    • Signed with AOSP platform certificate where appropriate for easy theming


      Please see the main MCR topic for the changes in each release.

      In order to use this ROM you must have ClockworkMod Recovery installed - see my ClockworkMod Beta post for details.

      Baseband 1035.21_20110622 is recommended, available in this topic.

      Installation

      To install this ROM:

      • Download the zip file of your choice from the links below (or the online kitchen) and copy to your SD card (/sdcard/_ExternalSD) - you must used a physical microSD card!
      • Restart your device in recovery mode
      • PERFORM A NANDROID BACKUP FROM THE MENU
      • Select the option to apply an update zip, and select the zip file you copied to your memory card - your device will auto convert to EXT4 on installation. You MUST use a physical microSD card!
      • If you have problems with Market licencing, check your device date!

        Upgrading

        A WIPE IS MANDATORY IF YOU ARE COMING FROM STOCK / MCR Fr3 OR EARLIER! Apologies, but this is unavoidable for this release. I recommend using Titanium Backup to back up your data. Wipe BEFORE installing the ROM.

          Thanks

          It's impossible to mention everyone who contributes to the Android community by name, but to everyone out there who does great work and shares it with us all - you have my gratitude and respect.

          Future Updates - READ THIS!

          By providing this ROM I am not implying in any way that future updates will follow. Due to limits on my time and the fact that I have a large number of devices for short periods of time, it isn't possible for me to continue providing ROM updates indefinitely. Please do not donate / sign up on the assumption that future releases will be available (I don't want you to be disappointed!).

          And finally...

          If you would like to show your appreciation for the ROM, please consider supporting MoDaCo by signing up for a MoDaCo Ad Free or MoDaCo Plus account, both of which also give you early access to Beta ROM releases and access to the the online kitchens.

          Enjoy! :)

noob question, sorry.

Do i need to root the device before flashing the rom? and do i install the rom with first installing ClockworkMod Recovery, then restart the device in recovery mode and select the zip file?

no need to root, just follow the guide to install ClockworkMod recovery, make sure your baseband is up to date then go ahead and flash the ROM!

Wrong, not the same. LG SNS is ported through 3rd party server that connects to Facebook /Twitter/ Myspace servers
