My L7 is fantastic, but I lost bootloader, I can't acces emergency mode :(. And this morning I saw there is again KDZ file for Jelly Bean. Did anyone made update with this KDZ file? Is there anything different than in my V20A from 4-5 days ago?
is it better than samsung galaxy s duos??or suggest me any other gud phone in this price range .
maçr, 25 Mar 2013Someone pls advice me, should I go for this phone or xperia sola i think this phone will be better than xperia sola. bcz sola doesn't hv secondary cam, but the processor speed is damn good... so, both will be good... if you want secondary cam you can go to this optmus L7 ...
For proper usage of external SD card - it had been mentioned several times in this thread - use the program RemountSD v1.3
As for file manager working with gallery - I'm using Root Explorer and anything I wan can be moved anywhere.
can i use yahoo video chat using this phone? please tell me.. i was planning to buy one next week.. but i need to know first if i could use yahoo chat with vid?
johnny301092, 26 Mar 2013Hi Bernard, maybe Android is not supported in Croatia (I suffer from a same problem), but ther... moreThanks for the recomendation.
I have already instaled NavFree but i'll try this one also.
However, I have found a few more things that dissapoint me and that I simply cannot understand.
One of them is moving apps to external sdcard. I've tried all the tutorials that I could find, rooted my phone but it's simply not possible. This is not just L7 thing but, according to this http://www.chainfire.eu/articles/113/Is_Google_blocking_apps_writing_to_SD_cards_/ lot of android users suffer from the same problem even with more expensive phones. I had "dumb" Nokia 6288 and I could easely transfer apps on external memory card.
Another thing is alarm. I used to power off all the phones that I had including Nokia X6, before I went to bed and alarm still woke me up in the morning. Android phones (and from what I've read even iOS phones) when they're off they're off, no alarm in the morning.
Yet another thing is file manager. From the gallery there is no option to move pictures to external sdcard. There is an option to move pictures to another album but there is no option to create one, ar least I haven't found it yet. I have installed couple of file managers and it solves problem but it is jumping through few more hoops.
is there any lg tv app like lg optimus l5 in lg optimus l7??? reply pls....
Boss, 25 Mar 2013How do i install the Official ROM v10k?Find the instructions and follow them, because all I did is just an OTA update.
bernard, 02 Mar 2013I have this phone for a couple of weeks, it looks good, there is some lag but what i really ca... moreHi Bernard, maybe Android is not supported in Croatia (I suffer from a same problem), but there are dozens of excellent non-internet navigations (which work, as you said, even without SIM). My personally best app of that kind is iGO MyWay, you should try it, trust me it won't dissapoint you. For more info about it, you can ask freely.
I have asked on XDA about overheating / battery drain on V20A and no one has any issues with it. They are reporting good battery life, like using it whole day and still 75% available. But it is better to wait for it to come via OTA update.
Egiuxz, 23 Mar 2013I have it with an V10k Dec-2012 update and it's fast, smooth and has a great battery life.How do i install the Official ROM v10k?
Even if it is not a 'beta' it is for sure a 'leaked' non-final version. First it was published on the Official German LG forum - http://forum.lg.de/viewtopic.php?f=53&t=9017&start=0 , but the message had been removed on the next day.
One more thing - the V20A ROM is currently available ONLY in KDZ format, but KDZ flasher is not officially supported by LG. So how can V20A be an official ROM?!?
As for the battery - of course I made the hard resets before and after flashing. And I can confirm that the battery drain and the overheating are there. Yes - the better performance is here too, but at a price.
Where did you find out that it is the beta version?? It is just the beta website for firmware search, the firmware is V20A, no sign of any beta. As i am reading the forums at XDA users who installed it don't complain about the battery drain, yet some are telling that the battery got even better. The phone seems to be smoother and faster and the GUI is little changed (notifications). The update has yet to come to OTA updater. For the battery drain, maybe you should do a hard reset after installing it.
@Santos and All
Please be WARNED!!! The link posted by Santos is to a BETA version of JB for LG L7! This ROM has some bugs and issues the most annoying of which is the extreme battery drain. Please be patient - there WILL be an official release some day, but for the moment it is better NOT TO INSTALL this version!
