When I try and install the v1.8 recovery version from the link above (via clockworkMod Recovery menu) it gives me the following error:

-- Install from sdcard...
Finding update package...
Opening update package...
Installing update...
Installation aborted.

Does anybody have an idea what might cause this error? Has anyone got this to work?

I'm using CM7 1.6 with ClockworkMod v3.0.0.5

Cheers

I was disappointed from the battery life too .... until I found ... this program ! Battery booster . It has risen my battery life up to 3 days !!! And now it's still 40% ! Absolutely awesome ! Before i found my battery life was around a day .
Make sure that these options are activated :
battery booster ---> battery tweak ---> smart battery saver
battery booster ---> battery tweak ---> security level ---> low
The apk is in the rar archive below . Here you are :



It doesn't do anything with version 1.9

I just installed 1.9 and it's way faster than lg's official 2.1 update, awesome!!!

However, I cannot get to browse the internet from wi-fi. Does anybody else have a problem with wi-fi connections?

Edit: It was something with my network :) Apologies.

To update from v1.8, do I just copy the recovery zip to the root of my SD card and use Clockwork to install it ?
That'd be so much easier than flashing s*** with that ultra slow kdz updater...

Is it possible to use a 3rd party launcher with cm7, LauncherPro, GO Launcher etc, Because i manage to install ok but can't seem to find a way to select/change from the stock launcher?
Also anyone have a bug when the phone is powered on, it take's a min or 2 for sim card to work?

New version for test, nothing serious. Odexed, updated (CM and kernel), cleared (from unneeded apps), slightly optimized, more free ram

i have no battery booster app installed (though i used to)

Ive just installed v2.0 and it fixed the issue mentioned above.

Edit: No, it didnt :) it became better but still disconnects sometimes.

I can confirm that Facebook FC's as this is the reason I rolled back to EleganceSwift Data <-> System.
Much faster and reliable to be honest.

The Facebook FC on the new version (1.5.3) is a Facebook app issue, it happens on stock CM7 as well, so it's not an issue of this ROM. It FCes on Messages.

Hey guys, I have a question.
I have flashed Swiftdroid v1.8 a few days ago, but now I see there's a more recent version. How do I install this ?
I already tried to unzip the "recovery" version and rename the zip file in there to update.zip and moved to SD card. It installed fine in recovery (3.0.1.9) but it freezed at the SwiftDroid logo (for more than 20 minutes) so I reflashed the v1.8 zip again (which luckily worked). How do I flash the new swiftdroid using recovery ? (I prefer recovery because it's simple and no need to screw arround with drivers and stuff)

Sorry to tell you, but I'm reverting to v1.8.
I upgraded to 2.0 a few days ago and it's slow as badword. Also most of the time I have like 30 mb ram free.
Luckily 1.8 made everything work like a charm (now redownloading the zip)

I'm using GO Launcher with CM7 v1.9. Works fine. First time I hit the 'Home' button after installing GO Launcher it asked me which launcher to use. I just selected GO Launcher and ticked the 'default action' option.

You can download Home Switcher type apps from the market to select between launchers (though I haven't tried any of these myself). Can't remember how to do it 'manually' but you could try checking under Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications for the Launcher app and clicking the Clear Defaults button if it's enabled. This might allow you to choose a different launcher next time you hit the Home button. Also have you just tried clicking on the GO Launcher app icon in the app drawer?
