@ stephen m - some people have issues with wifi, try to see for youself, I had none. 24.11 has issues with video files playback, 18.11 is ok.

@ mostertruck - try the camera from 4.2 (for ARМ6, posted here) or Camera ICS

@ RZRV8 - it always shows around 420MB for 512MB RAM. The rest are reserved for the system, but are used. Unlocking of RAM is for some models with 256MB RAM, not for you. Use TPT to increase your internal memory (used for installing apps) - you need one with at least 160MB for system to use this ROM.

Thanks!

I'm experiencing a significant battery drain issue.

I had similar problems. When changing from overclocked to standard speed, battery got back to expected.

Google Now is cool, but it drains battery. Disabling Google Now and Google Maps location trail get me back to something just slightly worse then KonstaT Swedish Snow: 3 days with moderate usage.

I use GSam Battery Monitor to find what uses batteries.

@ty_hot, jpdoliveira, matcho13579, mostertruck, gerhardo

Thankyou so much for all your help!

It seems that for now at least, the battery has only dropped 4 percent overnight which is much better than before...hmm, I'll have to investigate what changes I may have made that has solved the battery drain issue. I suspect what jpdoliveira said "phone is always awake" was true, and I have uninstalled a few apps recently so one of them could have been the culprit!

To extend battery life I removed Google Now from gapps installation and have frozen Google Maps until I need them :P

Forgive my ignorance - how would I do this ? Don't use either

I finally found a way to fix autobrightness! Using this great app - Velis auto brightness by Velis74.

I have tried using apps for custom controlled brightness before (like Lux Auto Brightness), but they made no difference. Seems this app, somehow, manages to get sensor data directly and is not affected by the autobrightness bug. It also has an impressive amount of options for control of screen brightness (you may try it, even if you have no problems). Great app!

Do you have an sdcard inserted?

If yes, try again, but this time don't forget the first '/', because that makes it an absolute path.

Or just /sdcard/logcat.txt.

That should work on all roms.

I presume he's running this rom if he asks the question there. :-)

This issue appears not only if swhitch to video mode. I saw it early if just run cam application.

My blade(libra) has 5Mpix cam.

This is repeated on every page, but who need to read. This is a well known bug - camera is not perfect, especially video recorder (that is what causes the bug). It is important that video recording works (with a hack, just like YouTube HQ) and even with some bugs the resulting video is clean. Usually, it is enought to rotate the screen once to fix the bug. Also, try other camera apps (camera from 4.2 or Camera ICS).

Everything you said is true for me except rotation - it does not fix the bug. Camera ICS works well.

In all other discussions I have seen, the Blade HW only wakes on the Power button. All other solutions must keep the device awake (or wakeup momentarily periodically) - this will increase battery usage. So I do not know what CM7 did.

I assume you did not mean GSam Battery Monitor (on Google Play) or overclocking (in Settings).

To disable Google Now cards, do it one by one. Open Google application, Settings, Now-card, inactivate the cards (all may not affect location).

For Maps: Settings-Locationsettings: Deactivate Positionreport and locationsharing, location history

Enabling zRam can improve time to get back to launcher considerably, so the device feel faster.

Settings->Performance->Memory Management

However zRam will not improve performance in applications, probably the other way around. Snap.IT had an explanation about it.

And for battery drainage, check apps too, to see what is using the radio. It may be that apps use battery indirectly, even if 3% vs 60% is not likely.

If you are in bad coverage and need to handover often, battery power is needed. I get values like this when putting the phone in a locker in a cellar. GSam has details.
