Root New Boost LG Marquee off amazon. Simple steps to flashing MarkyBeats 1.2 with ZVC?


Apr 18, 2012
Hey guys, I've been reading all the threads I can find about the Markybeats 1.2 and ZVC rom. I've got a bit of information overload and this is my first time on Android. Anyway, I'm hoping you guys can guide me along the way.

Start with a Boost Mobile LG Marquee off Amazon. I'm assuming it doesn't have the latest update since it hasn't been on the network yet. To get Markybeats 1.2 with ZVC, do I just need to root the phone and then apply the ROM?

I got confused when people talked about manually updating to ZVC and then flashing the rom, but I didn't know if the rom already includes ZVC. I'm looking at this one: BOOST ZVC: v.1.2zvc/zv4_21 (from http://androidforums.com/marquee-al...-zvc-marky-beats-v1-2-beta-updated-4-6-a.html)

Is this right?

1) follow AIO root & recovery guide here: http://androidforums.com/marquee-all-things-root/510164-root-cwm-lg-marquee-aio-root-recovery.html
2) factory reset (phone is new, nothing to backup)
3) Reboot into CWM Recovery and flash MBv1.2BSTzvc.zip
-"Install zip from Sd"
-Select zip and hit "yes"

Is that all? Does this include the latest update from Boost?

Any advice is appreciated! Thanks!
