[ROM] [4.4.2] LG G3 ROM for the LG Ultimate 2
« on: June 22, 2015, 08:09:59 pm »
We have reached 4000+ total downloads making this the #1 most downloaded ROM for the LG Ultimate 2! Development will be continuing after a year of nothing, expect a new version sometime in 2017!

This is a ROM for the LG Ultimate 2 based off of the stock ROM, but with a ported LG G3 interface and apps, therefore massively modernizing and improving the experience. Please be sure to read everything below so you don't make any mistakes. Also before you do anything, you need a recovery to install the ROM. Any of the recoveries on TracFone Developers will work. Also I recommend you do a full wipe before flashing this ROM. You don't have to, but it's a good idea if you previously had a heavily modified stock or a different ROM. If you had a complete stock install, you just need to wipe the cache before installing the ROM for it to boot correctly.

How to install using TWRP:
1. Download G3-ROM-Port-2.3.zip to your phone.
2. Boot into recovery from flashify by selecting the "Reboot into recovery" option from the menu.
3. In TWRP select "Backup"
4. Now select the "Storage" option and tap on MicroSD
5. Next name the backup something then press backup. And it will backup everything on your phone.
5. Once it's done press the home key and then select the "Install" option from the menu.
6. Find the zip and uncheck anything about erasing the ROM
7. After its done installing press "Wipe Cache" and then press reboot.
8. Tell me what you like or dislike about this ROM in the comments.

Notes:
When you open settings for the first time you will look around and notice that when you press specific options settings will crash. Press the menu button and tap the list view option. I tired of getting replies that say the settings doesn't work right.

ROM Review:
You can find that here: http://tracfonedevs.createaforum.com/index.php?topic=13.0

LG G3 User Interface by LG:

Other stuff:
So in this ROM I have included a app that will let you know if I release a new version of this ROM. You will get a notification that will tell you you have a message from Software Updates. Tap on that and you will be all set. You can also check manually for updates from the G3 ROM Updates app on your homescreen. When you update to a newer version of my ROM, you will need to clear the data for "G3 ROM Updates" in the application manager. If you don't, you will get updates for your last installed version of my ROM.

Credits:
And make sure to thank the @SuperR on androidforums.com for the updater-script. Without him my ROM would not be here. The updater-script is the most important part of a ROM. It allows the ROM to boot. Also please thank @edodson84 for helping me with the lge-res.apk.

If you have any feedback or recommendations, tell me by leaving a comment below. I greatly appreciate any feedback. Thanks!

I just have a major bug to report: in the v2.0 release rotation's broken! I hope that in 2.1 that's fixed, but other than that the ROM looks great!

That issue should be fixed in v2.1. You can use this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=nl.fameit.rotate

I would consider you not putting the mobile hotspot in the rom Ryan, per terms and conditions its not allowed. I just don't wanna see bricked devices cause of it.

The hotspot doesn't work and it's purely just for show and a new icon.

I have not got caught or nothing since I had the hotspot app on my phone and it's been there forever.

Your device won't brick if because of me or TracFone. They will only charge you if you find a way to get the hotspot to work.

By installing this ROM or any ROM or recovery you have already violated the terms so there is nothing to worry about.

I have had a rooted phone for a year and nothing has happened to my service or phone.

Again, this ROM won't brick your phone.

I will see if I can remove the icon in the next version.

This ROM is amazing! It even fixed a few dislikes with this phone. One issue I found is a very minor issue though. Sometimes the status bar appears black when it should be transparent (example Google Now Launcher). A simple tap would fix it, but it's just a very minor annoyance. Again, only happens sometimes, and I'll post a screenshot if needed.

Other than that, outstanding work!

Thanks for the kind words!

That also happens on the stock ROM but not as much. I will see what I can do.
