What's your clock widget called?

Author northranger79 (2 years)
@omgthisiswerid Yeah, the developer put in ADW instead of the stock GB
launcher. ADW is the best launcher IMO. But you can install Any other
launcher and be perfectly ok!

Author Ross Reed (2 years)

the new rom correct?

Author omgthisiswerid (2 years)
I love you! finally this works!!!! also, is it suppose to preinstall adw
launcher and is ok to switch to go launcher ( i use their widgets alot)?

Author Luis Mendoza (2 years)
ive done the steps correctly but it shows the stock recovery not the
custom. ive done it like 10 times already. help me?

Author Keygern (2 years)
I follow everything you do but the custom recovery doesn't want to flash.
It just shows the stock android one ... please help ?

Author Juan Roque (2 years)
I just got my Optimus Freed. The only problem I encounter was the renaming
of the custom recovery to "vrecovery.img" the first time I did it failed
because Windows 7 retains the extension (.img) so you don't need to type
the extra ".img" just rename it to "vrecovery" and you will be fine.

Author Jerry Hodge (2 years)
Great guide thanks alot. i did have problems with super one click freezing
up but kept rebooting phone and cpu and retying after alot of attempt super
one click was able to gain temp root access. The rest of the steps went off
without a hitch your not just rooting your phone your installing the
gingerbread version of android with the cynogenmod 7.1 installed. Its like
buying a new phone for free ? can i turn off usb debugging now ? ? how do
you get phone interface on your cpu ?
