This should install WiFi Calling until it's back in Bloater

Center Clock MOD - Download
Does what it says, moves the clock in the notification bar from the right to the center of the notification bar. Preview it here

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
These are the most frequent questions asked. They consisit of what are asked in this thread, and what i've been asked in a PM.

Q - I have random reboots, what can i do?
A - The keyword is "random", meaning it can't be predicted when and where they come from. One thing you can do is try switching kernels, another is
reducing OC freq or chance UV settings, unless someone wants to send me a logcat after replicating the random reboot. These things happen, and its
really hard to track and pin down, but i'll be trying my best to keep them to a minimum.

Q - Do i have to use Dragon-G2x? I want to use Faux's kernel.
A - No, you don't. You may use Faux, but my phone likes the Dragon. If you do want Dragon, i recommend the one above b/c it's been repacked by ttabbal for faster boot time. Although, the choice is yours, thats why it comes with stock kernel.

Q - Why do i have to wait after flashing?? I want to use it now!!!
A - Bionix is known for its speed & stability tweaks. After flashing, the initial boot is critical. The performance tweaks need to run and set everything correctly. If you start pushing buttons and stuff, it could mess up the process. And speed cannot be guaranteed if these scripts aren't ran completly.

Q - I don't like the theme, can i flash another one?
A - Yes, if it has been themed/ported to this ROM. The framework have lots of tweaks in it, and flashing themes not meant for this ROM switches the frameworks and you won't have the tweaks i put in. Also, stuff may break, like the Power Menu, or stuff in Settings.

Q - Does this ROM block ads?
A - Yes, inside /system/etc, is a file named "hosts". Inside this file, almost 98% of ad servers are blocked. It consist of 2 public hosts sources, and my sources from my own PC's hosts. I personally HATE ads everywhere. If you want ads in your ROM for any reason, let me know and i'll give you a flashable that'll reverse this effect.

Q - I can't send or recieve MMS over WiFi!! What can i do??
A - This is a known bug across all OTA based ROMs, Turn off WiFi...or flash the one that Whitehawkx has in his Weapon thread.

Q - My GPS sucks since i flashed this!! You broke my GPS!! Can you fix it!??
A - The gps.conf in this ROM has more servers to choose from than a stock ROM, so it can do nothing but help. You can try installing Romanbb's Bloater to change GPS configs that if for your current location. Also, note that it may take a few extra seconds to lock the first time, but after that it may be alot faster.

Q - Why is my data is gone after i flashed this?
A - Some report this after immediatley flashing Dragon-G2x after flashing the ROM, and find that if they reboot once after setting up their preferences and stuff, then flash Dragon-G2x, data does not go out. Some have also reported that flashing Faux's kernel after losing data fixes the issue. Since v1.1, i've been experimenting with RIL lib files trying to resolve this issue, but this issue is temporary and is being worked on constantly.

Q - Is there any way to put in EDT Tweaks?
A - Yes, but no. EDT Tweaks are a "EDT" thing. Meaning its only going in EDT/TeamKang ROMs, like Trigger, Weapon, etc. I highly doubt that they'll let me put this tweak in, and if they do, theres probably alot of modifications needed. Whitehawkx and Romanbb did it cuz they're geniuses like that.

Thx for another rom. I installed it and played for few hours. Overall experience is good. Nice additions to stock rom.

I had to go back to cm7 based rom cuz I had my first unexplained reboot, like it used to do before I rooted my device,
. I think its the core stock rom from LG that's messed up beyond repair.

Would it be possible to make rom with 2.3.4 as core like tsugi rom?

2.3.4 has a couple of issues that would need to be worked out before I would honestly recommend anyone else put serious effort into it. The biggest one for me is that bluetooth is buggy as hell on any 2.3.4 Rom. Fine if you don't use bluetooth, but if you do, it's not stable.

I'm having a problem with the music player on the rom, it won't play through an entire song. I tried to install another music player but it does the same thing on this rom. What music player are you using on this rom? I love how it looks, just wished it worked

is their anyway to extract the LG Launcher and use it for other Roms?
Yes, but an easier way is to install Romanbb's Bloater and install the LG Launcher from there. Lotherius has ported it from O2x and has a repo set up in Bloater. It can be safely installed from there no problems.

FC on me after install from Bloater so ran Fix Permissions and rebooted and still wont work. I'm using Pheonix Blood 1.2 with faux .48, Any suggestions cause i really like that launcher.

"Most require the LG Launcher. The widgets will NOT load in a stock launcher, even if you have LG Launcher installed. This is of course how LG designed it. Some might work outside of LG Launcher. Also required is an LG based 2.3.3 or 2.3.4 rom. The downloads will not show up on other roms. That means no cm7 etc. I have not tested on those platforms and probably won't be able to soon."

Found that here:

Might just be coming back to your Rom

Yeah, i don't think it'll work on CM/MIUI/AOSP based ROMs like Pheonix Blood. Should work on OTA type ROMs like Weapon, Bionix Reloaded, Tsugi, Baka, etc.

ok so i switched back to your Rom and followed instructions to the T and i cant connect to the mobile network. I have no 2g/4g connection. I always wipe data, cache, delvik, system with every new Rom. Should i just re-flash? Only thing different i did this time was flash the dragon kernel before first boot.
