anyone else experiencing com.android.acore force closes? I know Google+ 2.0 causes it, but I'm using Google+ 1.08.

It is definitely a problem with Gr7 since I had no problem with Gr5, but the moment I flashed Gr7 (the one with the updated google apps), I get the FCs.

It seems to have something to do with the logs because if I wipe contacts (contacts.apk and contact storage), I can load up the dialer, but the moment I hit up the call logs, bam I get an FC.

Also FCs when I end calls which matches up with the theory that logsprovider.apk is the culprit.

Whatever happened to GR6?

Not that i'm not gagging to download this and get it installed :)

Gr6 was KI3 which I wasn't impressed with, hence it never got released! :D

Phone apk FCs, as well as samsung messaging. stock android messaging works fine (the google flavoured one).

I have attached a log that shows me trying to open the phone.apk.

FC when call ends as well, radio connection drops out before reconnecting.

not sure what's wrong.

I don't get a Phone FC, nor Samsung messaging... anyone else?

Paul, any chance of including options to disable the various vibrates like you have for sounds, such as connection of charger and power off.

Does this ROM / Kernel include USB host support? I bought a dongle from eBay but can't get it to work properly with Gr5 so I was wondering if either the dongle was faulty or just not supported. The dongle works for attaching USB drives but not keyboards / mice.

Yes, good idea, i'll definitely work on that!

re: USB host support, it should work... I don't have a dongle to test however! I'll add in the stock kernel / CF-Root so you can test...

Hi Paul,

I don't suppose you'd consider including Cerebus ( https://www.cerberus...om/download.php ) into the kitchen?

I've not used it, is it good?

Just a heads up (in the interests of transparency!) that i'm finishing up a few bits on my Optimus 2X Gingerbread ROM then this one will be my top priority. The 2X one should be done today. :)

Been running Gr7 over the weekend, no issues whatsoever...

Oh, and a reminder that for a limited time, you can upgrade to MoDaCo Ad Free / Kitchen access for only $9 - details! :)

I also got the Polaris office problem. Also, I noticed the Email now do not have out-of-office setting? Is it because you have chosen the stock Android email app instead of Samsung one?

Just wanted to give some feedback.

Been running the Oct 13th prebake all weekend and really please with it. Haven't come across any FCs or anything that's not working.

The only issue I had was the initial flash where I tried to apply the update without a wipe. I cleared caches and applied but the phone seemed to go into a bootloop (or just stuck on boot with the animation repeating over and over). Once I wiped it all seemed fine.

Battery's lasting twice as long as it was before, but I suspect that's more due to the fact that the wipe has cleared out all the crud I had installed on it :)

Pleased enough with it not to return to my backup ;)

Cheers Paul!

Re: Cerebus - http://www.cerberusapp.com

Yeah, it's pretty awesome. Let's you lock/wipe the phone if it gets stolen, take photos remotely, trace it remotely and do things like take a snapshot with the front-facing camera if the unlock code is wrong.

It's free for a week, then has a one-time cost of around £2 (other similar apps have a monthly charge)

Not sure what your policy for including commercial apps is, but if it were part of the ROM it could survive a factory reset, which would be really cool ;)

Owen

p.s. I guess it's a bit like a home grown/cheap version of WaveSecure

I do find that WaveSecure or Cerebus aren't really needed because you can track your phone and do all that kinda stuff www.samsungdive.com If you've signed in with a Samsung account on your phone.

Not really wanting to pay less, ill wait till my sub is due and pay the full amount. Happy to keep donating, on my third device supported by your development so £10 a year seems pretty cheap to me :)

Hi, have FC problems with any Gmail widget I try to add to my homescreen. This may be not be a ROM issue, but rather a permissions issue with Gmail. Can anyone else confirm this?
