LG Ultimate 2 / Re: com.android.keyguard has stopped
« on: July 24, 2017, 06:12:59 pm »
Good morning.  An interesting issue has arisen -  Keyguard has stopped.  It's intermittent, happens roughly once in every five reboots. And, when it does, it totally disables the U2.  Seems to be a Lockscreen related issue and, only in Landscape mode where it'll take apprx. 40% of the right side of the display and black it out with certain wallpapers. So far, the easiest solution is to use the Complete Keyguard Disabler module that the good folks at Xposed offer.  Works in a rough, raggedy type of way, but, no complaints.  Ryan, you must've seen this glitch in your Development of the U2.  Fone is happily using the UltaLolli 2.1 offered up by Dodson.  This ROM is as smooth as a baby's tush with Talcum Powder applied !  Wondering what to do besides reflash the ROM and rebuild it.  Seems to be a moderately serious kinda glitch that I'd rather not have. Any slick,quick ideas from the Admin ?
If the ROM is used as intended, then this wont happen.

It only happens when you start messing with xposed and other system files does this happen.

I have never experienced this error, nor has anybody else on the forums so its something your doing. I suggest wiping/reinstalling the G3 ROM.

Thanks killswitch! Maybe i can get a job working for yall since we seem to be educated alike. But i would appreciate Mr.Bossmans input too. They are pretty cheap phones so i guess he doesnt lose alot of money on the issue. Just wut he didnt cloud. I do have a little computer experience...up to windows xp... im assuming to do the McAfee trick, i need to hook up to my puter and download sum...drivers...transfer anything...if anything...is still on his phone, to my puter, then access wutever i must access thru McAfee on my puter?
Never seen that error before, but I might be able to provide some insight on how to fix it.

Try this method: https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-28939

It's will work on your phone as it basically the same thing as the Leon.

That is really the only thing I can think of.

ROM Support / Re: Stock or otherwise rom for SM-120VL (Luna)

Thanks for the reply! I missed it somehow until now. I'm curious: are there any roms I may try out with the phone or do I have to have the exact tracfone specific rom for the phone? I don't really need the phone to be online with tracphone, I would be fine using wifi.

Thanks!
I don't currently know of any ROMs that have been tested and work for the phone, but you might be able to port some if you get the right tool to do so.

I recommend looking at other pre-paid providers like MetroPCS and Cricket for phones like yours, with the same processor and same look (Not counting colors). I would do so myself but I don't know much about today's Samsung lineup. If you find one let me know, and I can look into it and determine if it will work or not, or even port it if I get time.

The processes will mostly be trial and error.

Hello all,

I have a not-so-important announcement to make.

TF Devs will now be a company of Viewpoint Technologies: https://sites.google.com/site/theviewpointtechnologies/home

We will still operate as normal, as we still won 40 percent shareholdings, but there may be some small changes.

Rest assured we wont be going anywhere, as its been noted TF Devs is very valuable to the community and seeks to continue providing advanced support and 3rd party ROMs to many Tracfone devices for year to come.

Thanks for understanding!

Yea, I kinda knew this was gonna happen. I will try to remove the updater app and see if that fixes any of the issues, I just don't know why LG would find the need to update these 2 apks on an over 3 year old phone.

Good luck with that, it might break the keyguard if you do.

Yea I am going to be very cautious with it!

I trashed my Galaxy Core Prime a few weeks ago (1st & last Samsung I'll ever own), now I'm back on my Ultimate 2.  I wiped the data, restarted, and no sooner than I finish the initial setup process, 2 LG updates immediately start downloading, so I didn't have choice.  After the updates finished, I rebooted, and the lockscreen had a button at the bottom for "emergency call", and a message under the clock widget that read "No sim card".  Furthermore, the lockscreen shortcuts were gone, so I uninstalled the keyguard update.

After another reboot, the lockscreen was completely gone!  I had issues in the past like this, if I disabled the LG Home launcher, or removed the ChromeWithBrowser.apk, and a few other ROM changes.  And once the lockscreen was gone, I couldn't figure out how to get it back, short of restoring a backup image, or worst case, resetting the phone again.

So when the LG updates started downloading after another reset, I cancelled the keyguard update, but I couldn't stop the SystemUI Update Helper in time.  Anyway, I started Titanium Backup, froze the LG update apps, opened root explorer, deleted the SystemUI update .apk in '/data/app-system' (couldn't be uninstalled from App Manager), and rebooted.

Guess what?  Problem solved.  Now if only I could fix the disappearing lockscreen without resetting the phone.

I'm still running the factory ROM, with a few minor mods, in case you're wondering.

Sadly there is no such thing yet, I recommend using the boot loader to restore the phone (If there is any)

Other then that there is nothing that can be done.

Well, GSM is going to want to be the one you should use as long as it's not activated. You can go to the TF website and activate it there.

So far no bad notes on the phone yet, my sister loves her Moto HE Play.

General Device Support / Re: phone not functioning correctly
« on: April 06, 2017, 10:40:11 am »
Nothing out of the norm. I myself tore my phone apart Put a broken phones insides in it Fixed the virus issue but left me with another now i gotta get my service information onto the rebuilt phone.
If the phone has an SD card, what you can do is remove that, and then everything is on there. that is why I always store the stuff I have for photos and downloads not he SD card so I in case something happens I don't have to deal with it by doing all these difficult methods. If you able to access the internal storage, copy everything you can form there and put it on some type of storage. You might not be able to do this if your phone doesn't boot up far enough. I have only been able to do this a few times.

I would say your best bet is to just contact TracFone for a replacement. They will send you one free of charge.

That's what I did when I bricked my phone creating the LG G3 ROM.

Usually you just tell them the phone isn't working anymore and it just stopped working out of the blue (Even if it did not, still tell them that.) Don't mention that you took it apart or anything.

The first thing they will is for you to hard reset the phone, then if that that doesn't work (Chances are are it wont) They will send a new one to you.

I hope this helps a bit.

awhile back my phone lg41c got a virus since then it doesn't boot up it boots in a loop every once in awhile it will boot up if its left without a battery for an extended period of time I have factory reset it and full factory restored the device it keeps having the same issue on boot up the only clue I could see that might have something to do with the issue is www.w3.prg/1999/02/22 on a file I believe to be infected theres like a hundred of those files using es file browser to look inside the phones folders most of the files I seen using text editor reveals symbols to me much like a virus to lock down the device. google hasn't offered much help has anyone encountered such a problem and resolved it?

What actions did you do to it before if any?

Recovery Building / Re: how to build TWRP for LG Destiny
« on: March 13, 2017, 11:13:31 am »
  And, at that point, you'll draw some serious laughter. Even from Professionals !  From A toZ,  this will be the single biggest charade I've seen drift past me in several years.  Development like this is, without doubt, more than repacking a  LG Leon TWRP image in a few easy steps.  The XDA Head Developer, Dees Troy, is a JackAss from a long line of Mules. Not even the Third World will get near this one.  You line 100 average peeps against the wall and,  not even one is going to step up accordingly for this one. This is exceedingly funny -  no one's home here.  Got a site with virtually no interaction. Everyone wants to be spoonfed.  And with Tracfone, I'm not surprised at anything spinning past me. This is Dark Side personnified.
It's not a 1-2-3 process, and it never will be. If you have dedication, you will do all the steps as written and eventually produce a working product.

I certainly don't appreciate having Dees Troy being called such names, he has done so much for the Android development community there would be MUCH less resources without him, making things like building recoveries harder.

I also can't be certain who you are directing your oddly typed out insults towards sometimes, as your wording make thing very difficult for almost anyone to understand. Also your popular usage of extreme profanity is not wanted here, as this is a place for people of all ages to learn. Hence why the forum is attempted to be kept at PG level, plus its just common sense as some might say.

I would very much appreciate if you stopped behaving is such a odd manor, but if your actually trying to help or solve problems please word your posts in a way anyone can understand them.

I have one question for you. Are you willing to actually contribute and modify you ways, or are you going to continue your troll like behavior and be banned from the forum, as trolls are not liked here.

  So, Ryan -  sad that this outpost is pretty much evacuated except for yourself, the Moderator.  Well, here's a caqtegory that hasn't been used. Okay, I'll inaugurate it . I wanna recompile an LG Leon c50 TWRP  image to target the Destiny LGL 21G  y50_trf_us  spefically.  And, only peepslike Dodson and yourself are gonna be able to pony up detail going in this particular direction . What will I need to edit besides the BoardConfig. mk  file  ?  Couldn't be much more than that . Even have something called a ' fingerprint "   with a 10 digit number followed by user/release-keys  code.  I wonder if that number itself is capable of unlocking the Bootloader directly.  The Fingerprint has everything relevant connected to it. Build ID  is  LRX21Y .  Android API level  21 . Yadda yadda .  Signing ( bumping )  an IMG file doesn't seem to work with a stock ROM who's Locked tight .  Would prefer to use TWRP 3 ( or above )  to do this . Want it to be 100 % like your IMG for the U2 . Almost flawless !  Would almost like to chat with XDA on this one.  They would giggle and laugh at me . LOL .  Will be needing a little di-rection here . Feel pansified.  Like a Flower Child.

With the recent release of 2 Updates on the stock ROM for 'Keyguard' and a new thing called 'SystemUI Update Helper', it got me thinking, maybe we could get an OS update (not from 'Keyguard' but from the 'Update Helper').
These two are very vital to system operation, I will break them down for you.

Keygaurd:
This is the lockscreen, it is the interface and also how it operates. On the LG G3 ROM if you update this, the material design lockscreen will remove itself and then turn into the default Optimus UI.

SystemUI Update Helper:
I am actually not 100 percent sure what this does, but the System UI is the status bar and a few small other things. I would venture to guess this updates the status bar.

My guess to as why these updates have been released is to remove the customization made to the LG G3 ROM and the UltaLoli ROM to restore them to default look. Updating theese will probably break a few things as there are a couple things in the status bar and lockscreen apks that require certain resources. if these are missing, the device will pretty much be bricked. A broken keygaurd is just like a broken phone, I busted system UI almost as bad.

My recommendation is to hold off on updating these until I can get a closer in depth analysis of these, but I am for sure that these can be patched on both ROMs.
