3) Application manager lists all your apps on /data as installed on SD-card, with a useless checkmark next to the titles (which you cannot click or select.)

That's just how Gingerbread works, you can complain about it, but it's not a bug or LG's fault.

In my experience, Gingerbread also fails at deleting things properly, so again, it's probably not LG's fault. I often delete something, then instantly get a new mail notification, which is an unread copy appearing in the bin.

Really? Including the useless checkmark?

Funny you say that about e-mail, because I always install the email-app from CM7, and it works perfectly. No trouble with deletions there. (There was a known bug in the AOSP 2.1 e-mail, which I think LGs e-mail app is based on. A bugfix was released by google, but not taken up by LG.)

For me the checkmark shows whether or not the app is on the SD card, so it's not completely useless.

You can only move the app to the SD card by using the "Move to SD card" button in the app's details, but at least trying to toggle the check mark takes you there.

Ah, ok, that makes some kind of sense then. Ok, agreed, that was a user-bug, not LGs.

Of course. Installed 20L some hours ago. Another very strange thing is that although they've made a new lock-screen, which is both prettier and smoother, it's not enabled by default. Which seems to me like this version wasn't intended for release either, but that someone at the top just said "Do it! Now!".


How do I enable that lockscreen???

And a question for Paul,

Can I upgrade to GR5 (when released) from this stock ROM????

Cheers!

Gr5 dev kitchen up tomorrow!

I did some digging/searching and i understood what approximately is deodexer rom.
I understand that a deodoxed is more "friendly" to themes or manipulation.
But what are the pros of a odexed over a deodexed one? Is it faster, in booting or in running?

The screenshot-function is disabled while the lockscreen is on, so here's a bad-quality photo instead. They look a little different along the bottom, and along the edges. This one also shows your background "through" the "glass" while charging, the old one shows only black while charging. The biggest difference is the animation though, this one is smooth.Attached File  lockscreen.jpg   88.9KB   79 downloads

Hello Guys,

have one question to persons who are using official update from LG, if there is really point to switch from cyagenmod 7 to official gingerbread?

Maybe some of you have experience in comparing the official gingerbread and CM7? what would your opinion about that?


The strange thing is that have my stock froyo backup made via ROM manager, when try to recover that and boot- optimus was stuck on lg logo,

wiping data did not help much, so switched back to CM7 by recovering the backup, which made before trying to repair stock FROYO

The question is if there are way to make it directrly mean CM7-> official update?



THANKS A LOT FOR YOUR OPINIONS IN ADVANCE :)
