Thanks tillaz, see you have repacked "mobile assistant" as well which is the OTA updater, will this still work as an OTA update, when another update comes out

Gone back to tillaz previous rom, this one kept dropping calls whether inbound or outbound after a few seconds to a minute

i have no idea its just the full stock rom with gapps added, nothing else or anything removed, so the ota should should work if its compatible with cwm.

I tried it out last night, but only made a very short call, so can't comment on the dropped calls.

Gps worked quickly after using Faster gps, but I noticed that the non-GPS location features didn't work with any browser, but DID work with the (new) maps app.

Also, the problems I had been having in all other roms with the long press on menu for recent apps seemed to be fixed in this rom. Worked every time. On other roms I have to press on the bottom half of the key, and even then it only works half the time.

Installed again last night. At first, non-GPS location wasn't working, but once I had reinstalled all my apps and used it for a while I found that now it does work with any browser.

The camera app is different from the previous version, seems to have very few features and crashes all the time.

Had 3 reboots this morning on the way to work. Not sure if it's something I installed. Has anyone else had this? Each time, I need to take the battery out to turn on again.

I try it a since july 9 and works great for me.

I flash via flash tools, then cwm (the guide here)

then super su ( in the guide again)

then uninstall all chinese apps

with go backup I restore my config and all great.

the only bad thing about this rom and all oficial ones are the apn and android first config.

In the modified rom (http://www.modaco.com/topic/363339-rom-vowney-v5-custom-rom-updated-04072013/) all apn and everything autoconfigures at first boot. in the oficial roms not work or I dont know why it dont work.

Thanks. All works fine. No any calldrops or something else bad) But why there are two different camera apps?))

P.S. before flash delete SmsReg.app from \system\ folder and China keyboard - the first application sends SMS without your permissions, the second quite unnecessarily.

I basically did what @pelelademadera did and the V5 has been working well.

Did anyone dig deeper into the apps folder and figure out what other Chinese .apk's can be removed? There are a few stragglers that can't be removed from Android. Some of the .apk's don't appear to have icons either.

It would be great to make a list of what .apk's can be removed from /system/app.

I updated to the 10/22 ROM today and it seems to be about the same.

However I've been having problems getting the phone's Caller ID working again. Like last time, I installed the Xposed framework and GravityBox. Not sure if I'm forgetting something.

Anyone else seeing this?

The settings are in Settings -> System -> GravityBox Tweaks -> General Fixes... tick "Fix caller ID for phone" and "Fix caller ID for messages".

I'm noticing better charging behavior. I listen to music over a bluetooth headset and despite the V5 being plugged in to a regular ~5 Watt USB port on my workstation (not high power), I would see the battery levels descend to around 50%. Not sure if the battery levels were *really* that low but it was surprising. The V5 would charge to 100% overnight w/the included high-power charger.

With the new ROM the V5 appears to stay fully charged while plugged into the workstation and listening to music over Bluetooth.
