This ROM is not flashing for me.  Downloaded it twice to make sure.  Did the wipe system and data, get error:
E:Error executing updater binary in zip '/external/Ultra_Lolli_V2.1.zip'

Tried other ROMS and they worked.  Any thoughts?

Thanks

Edit:  So tried once more.  This time I only did the normal TWRP wipe, I did not wipe the system per instructions.  WOW, this ROM is awesome, beautiful, magnificent, etc.  Great looking ROM.  Thank you.

Edit 2:  The only thing this is missing is the IME switch in the notifications.  I need to switch keyboards depending on app, typically when I need to enter passwords using KeePass2Android.   :(

Great job on the Rom. I use it as my primary phone and am quite happy with it.

The only bug I found is that daily light saving time follows the European standard, not the US standard...  Meaning that my cells clock changed a week early, so no biggie.

A small suggestion would be to have a file manage app for easier install of other apps without using the playstore.

Thanks for the Rom, been using it a few days as my daily driver and everything works.

 I may be missing it, but is there an email app included? I liked the app that comes on the U2 - would that one work with this rom if backed up with data and settings?

Edit: I deleted the Gmail setup that was one one of the home screens. If this is the email app, can it be used with my ISP email and how do I get it back?

Edit # 2: Never mind - transferred and installed the LGEmail.apk from the U2.

i dont think there is a stock lg email app; earl removed most of the LG Bloatware when creating this rom, thats why there is no QSlide, thats why its has a really nice stock android feel

Two things: I flashed this ROM and noticed that, while it was writing, it skipped the md5, stating that none was detected. There was a moment of regret, but then when I rebooted, everything looked great. When I attempted to enter the passcode for my wifi, however, I could not get the keyboard to show up on the screen. I messed with it for a while but couldn't get anywhere with it, so I went into recovery and reverted to my G3 build.

Did I do something wrong, or is this thing bugged?

You guys are blazing a trail I know nothing about, but I am following, reading all I can, trying to get up to snuff in the android world. As I may have stated on another forum, I'm in music professionally, but I take all of my amp, footpedals and guitars apart to mod them as well, just so ya'll know where I'm coming from.

Thanks fellas.

You gotta wipe the cache after and before you flash. You may also need to go into settings and select the Google Keyboard. It's pretty cool you do that stuff with music, I myself play the volia ☺

Hi there!

1.  I really like this ROM and think it's modern and stylish.
2.  I know it's been a while since the last post here, development is largely done.

But I've been having a problem and I'm wondering if any of you have an insight.  It's trouble with the Google Keyboard and the Google Play Services apps.  I flashed the ROM on and it was smooth sailing, until google bullied me into updating Google Play Services.  Almost instantly I started getting continuous crash dialogs (Unfortunately, Google Keyboarded has stopped) over and over, to a point where I can barely do anything.  I uninstalled the google play update, and all was well again. 

I've tried everything I can think of to get these apps to play nice.  Cleared keyboard's cache, cleared its data, restarted the phone, cleared the phone's cache, updated the Google Keyboard app to 5.1.23.127065177 (current), restarted into safe mode.  But every time I re-update google play services, it all starts up again.  I can't get the OS to stop using the keyboard.  I'm not sure how to uninstall it, or if that's even the underlying problem.

Any insights would be helpful.

That did the trick!  Thank you.

If I wanted to use google keyboard, would I have to uninstall the modded version before installing the current version?  It's not giving me any option to uninstall google keyboard entirely.

And speaking of updates, the battery status bar is refusing to let me access its settings until I update it to a newer version.  I'm not entirely sure how to do that.  I think I found it, 3minit battery settings, right?  Installation instructions involve decompiling and recompiling...

Thanks for the file, unfortunately despite updating to 4.1.0, the app still demands I update whenever I open its settings.  I've cleared app cache, data, phone cache, uninstalled and reinstalled the update.  It still gives me that popup every time I try to open it.  Is it okay that I'm using ES File explorer to conduct the update?
