      • Louis Gindra

        Sorry how do i do that i only have reset to default. if phone starts up i dont even get signal bars so even if i put in apn in it does not save.

        • NIkola

          You have to enter parameters for mobile network, manually. You should find the button “+” or something like that and opet the configuration where you can enter configuration settings for you mobile provider.

          • Louis Gindra

            Hi I have done that but it does not save it does not pick up the simcard so no network and it does not search for it ,it gives error could not search .If i load old rom it works fine.

          • NIkola

            Sorry, I didn’t clearly understand at the begining. I had the same problem with another custom ROM. I think that is the bug in the ROM and you cannot do anything about that. I found another custom ROM for LG L5, based on CM 10.2 and it works fine.
