I'm curious if you could help?

I've got a Vivacity and been running your ICS build since you released it, thanks for that.

But I've come across a problem. I've just updated to the latest build. 27/05/2012

I'm having an issue scanning QR Codes. I've got Google Goggles and Obsqr and neither of them want to scan.

I'm wondering if anyone else is having an issue?

Probably related to the HAL change. Camera changes all the time (pretty much weekly) so I wouldn't worry about it.

been absolutely pulling my hair out all day over this rom. Phone has been pretty stable with previous builds. Updated last night to R7a and had nothing but problems. Abysmal battery life, phone totally locking up needing a battery pull, random reboots, slow response touch screen, phone getting really hot during calls/charging. Did a total wipe, flashed back to stock, formated my 16gb class 4 sd card, repartioned it, fresh install of R7a again, phone ok for a while. then back to square one. I use titanium to backup/install apps, only adding my google account once i have used titanium to put my apps back on. I dont overclock the phone, and when i reinstall apps i always choose install app only not data as well.

I set up Link2sd to auto install apps rather than choose internal/external.

Help me someone before i throw my phone out the window lol.

Dazzozo!!! I love ICS rom but this has been doing my nut in all day. Ive read loads of topics on here today about best sd card partition sizes and so on, best way to install apps etc etc etc.

Maybe someone could write a guide to be stickied to the 1st page of this thread with a step by step guide on a total install, how to add apps from a backup and so on.

HELP!!!!!


I have had 3 complete lockups too (requiring a battery pull). Two of them were after plugging in the USB cable (once to a PC, and once to just a power socket).

The videos on my Vivacity actually had 0 B length. So in my case the video was not recorded at all.. :(


Ah no. Mine had recorded I just had no way to play them back on ICS. Bad luck there!

I can play the recorded videos with
MX Player (if a bit choppy). I'm still on R6 though.

I was wondering if the missing hw acceleration affects the recording speed?

Video recording isn't running completely as desired yet (we have to disable metadata and this is the reason why the native Gallery can't play the video). That would also be fixed by the OMX IL release.

What is OMX IL?

Does hardware decoding work in apps written to the Gingerbread API?

OpenMAX integration layer. All the info is linked in the second post, and no.

ICS is the first version with hardware acceleration, that's why it's taking so long to come to a lot of devices. Next versions of Android should be quicker cos the HW stuff will already have been done.

I had another hard lock up when plugging my phone in. It seems to hang if I plug it in when the screen is off.

I'm still getting some battery drain because something is preventing my phone from sleeping. Using Better Battery Stats, I norrowed this down to the msm_serial_hs_dma kernel wakelock.

A bit of Googling reveals that this is something to do with Bluetooth, but I have Bluetooth turned off!

Daz, any ideas?

@Daz how's the bluetooth-Wifi dependency fix going? I'm guessing thats what you are working on.

Slow, I've not been able to nail the problem yet. Everything seems to be throwing horrible errors and there's no apparent root cause. I've completely ruled out the kernel as it's fine with a kernel from source on the stock ROMs. I've been porting things across to make it as close to the stock Bluetooth setup as possible and everything just errors. Still battling it.

No difference with the stock music player as well?
I heard some problems without it in FnC

Are the problems with FnC related to initialisation without Wi-Fi on?

Hi,
Thanks for the rom and updates they are great/
Three issues I would like to know it there is a solutiona / could be:
1. Native video calling - i.e. button in dialer like in the samsung galaxy - I read that as to date only the galaxy has this. I do not mean an external app (i.e tango, skype, etcc) but a built in video calling option like I have in preious old sony ericsson w995. Any cahnce of puting the galaxy dialer on our phone ? I heard somewhere that this could maybe only work on GB and not on ICS
http://www.gsmarena....ew=597&idPage=6
2. Can the bluetooth receive data ?
3. Is the follwoing issue known - the phone stops the keyboard and takes a minute or so to get back to keyboard, we cannot sms or write Emails properly - if it is known is there a solution for this ?\
Thanks a lot for answers !

1. I'm porting CyanogenMod. Not taking random, probably proprietary apps from different phones.
2. Yes, but it needs Wi-Fi on to do so.
3. No idea what you're talking about, "the phone stops the keyboard"?
4. That is likely a network issue. I've sent MMS messages.
