Anyone else with very bad WLAN reception on this rom?

I use the Phone as WLAN-card over USB an with the Samsung Stock Rom 2.3.4 it worked the last 2 months perfect.

Now after i Updated it works only if the display is active and about 30 seconds after Display goes black.

In the Setings i tryed never disable WLAN and Never if it pluged in.

Edit:

Still with active Display its not usable anymore... The WLAN symbol goes away although i have 3 bars of the reception

after some Seconds its back again, but i not moved the phone and Realtime Website are not usable :-(

How's everyone finding the BOKJ1 modem? for me on T-mobile UK I have really awful choppy sound on calls even when showing full 3 coverage. I have had problems with 3G data in this area where it showed a strong signal but was basically unusable, so I'm wondering if the same problem is impacting voice on the galaxy s2 or if others are having similar issues.

On my desire running CM7 I used to force 2g when on wifi but I can't find an easy way to do this on touchwiz, any tips?

I tested yesterday at Home the Wifi and it works perfekt. Because of this i think that in the new ROM are other Wifi power settings. Paul can you confirm that?

Is it possible to adjust this?

Are there any tangible advantages to upgrading to GR8 from GR5 or should I just stick with what I've got?

If you truly wanted to show your appreciation you could just say thanks. I'm sure Paul has his own life to tend to.

Of course he has a life, people usually do, but he also has a job. If MoDaCo is his only job I do not know. All I know is he spends a lot of time on Twitter talking about Android, so I assume this is his job. Completely abandoning a phone after some time is not unheard of. If the Galaxy S II is abandoned we should get a clear message stating so. Though I am fairly certain it's not, I'm not holding my breath. Paul anyone else working on this could at least check in every few days and reply to questions and requests.

"Gr8" is very good, stable, but has room for improvement of course. If you're running "Gr5", there's really no point in upgrading, but I have no regrets. I'm very happy with my S II. :-)

I was having lots of issues with the Market force closing on this ROM....tried re-flashing etc, but no luck. So I've moved to the Cognition ROM 1.6 and Siyah Kernel 2.1...looks great so far. I may come back to Modaco if there are updates to GR8 or new ROMs.

Was thinking about reverting back to a MCR but I need to know if I hold volume up with screen off in my music apps will it go to the next track? I don't see an option in the kitchen for it, but it's a feature I've grown accustomed to in CM7 and don't think I could live without it. Hopefully someone will answer me, don't want to wipe and flash my phone in vain!

MCR doesnt have long press volume to skip tracks so don't flash if you can't live without it.

Will this be updated to the latest 2.3.6 Gingerbread released by Samsung recently?

Also adding BLN option in the kernel would be appreciated.

This thread is looking dead however so I'm a bit worried since I've just donated :unsure:

So given up on trying to move to CM7 and instead tried to use this ROM.

Getting same problem though, titanium backup won't restore my offline playlists for some reason.

Does anyone know why?

Alas that isn't an option atm as I do not yet have broadband in new flat and it is very data heavy.

Am resigned to having to do this Btw, but I am hugely curious as to why titanium cannot manage this with Spotify on the sgs2.

On my Desire it was able to restore the offline cache easily. I wonder if it is to do with using an external sd for storage on a phone with built in Usb storage.

Maybe make sure the "Backup app cache" option in Titanium Backup is selected, and that there isn't a size limit in force.

Just a guess, but worth a shot (if you can still access your old ROM).

Hi, I'm new here and this may sound pretty dumb but: where is this online kitchen? Where can I bake? Is it an App? Or a Programm for Win Computers? Can I bake online? Can't find it in this topic :/
