Just to add my two cents:
Overall, definitely feels very smooth, finally comparable to the Blade. Everything runs smoothly. That said, I've had a few stutters in music (sourcing files from my microSD) that I've not had on any previous ROMs but they're nothing more than a minor annoyance.

Battery life is awesome! Got two days and a couple of hours out of it, with standard usage (Data always on, few calls, checking twitter, ebay * mail, sending and recieving texts).

I have experienced that Font glitch on the homescreen that a few people above have mentioned, not yet been able to pinpoint what might be leading to it though. All told, fabulous. Thanks for the hard work Daz!

ah so it can't automatically switch between wifi and mobile data, reliably, without a crash/hang?


As was said, READ CAREFULLY, the problem occurs when Wi-Fi is toggled back on. If you leave both Wi-Fi and mobile data on, the device will switch between the two as normal.

edit2: removed smiley mmkay.


Your sardonism is rather inappropriate. The interim solution for users is to obviously leave Wi-Fi on and charge the device a bit more frequently, as needed, no biggy. It won't kill you.

Hi had a strange issue. First home button only worked with long press. Than over the space of ten minutes the phone became less and less responsive with trebuchet force closing untill 5 mins later it crashed and went into a boot loop. Wipeing it didn't fix it and had to re flash rom.

Great work anyway :D

Stock is whatever the last 'official' firmware you installed was - it's likely to be that Chinese B926. There's some debate as to whether you should update or not. If you install a ROM over the Chinese B926, you might have faster 3G, though some have reported problems with this(though not with CyanogenMod I don't think). If you update, you might have slower 3G, but might be more stable. You will lose the splash screen when you install a custom ROM like CyanogenMod or Infusion anyway, so personally I would not update.


Thank you. I just tried that and it just boots to a pink (t-mobile type pink) screen and hangs there. Pulling out the battery results in no damage to the phone but I jsut can't past the pink screen. I will reinstall the Chinese firmware again and start from that. I presume that will be fine.

I remember FM radio wan't affected by the low speaker volume problem, so that makes sense.


You have to root and other things to install this ROM, but when it's installed, it has built in root. Follow this guide if you're not sure how to get it:http://www.modaco.com/topic/357243-explained-like-youre-5-install-custom-roms-from-scratch-install-the-official-ics-update-root-more/

Oh thanks at the moment i just upgraded to ics now im gonna do the other steps to get this rom

Edit:It works fabulous!! luckily no wifi crash :D keep up the great work daz

As Dazzozo says it is more down to how you use it that causes the wifi problem, i have just purposely crashed my phone by waking from sleep my phone with wifi off. Running an app that needs a internet connection and while its trying to find a connection enable wifi through the notification bar and it froze. In normal use if you enable wifi and dont run a program till its got a data connection there should be no problem using this build.

Also if it does freeze, dont arse about pulling the battery, the system will reset itself in a minute or two.

Great rom, nice to be using CM again :D


well, I turned wi-fi off whenI was leaving home and when I came back after ~2hrs I unlocked the phone, opened notification bar on lockscreen and tried to turn on wi-fi and phone freezed. I cannot imagine any heavy load going on there since the phone was practically idle for 2hrs and only lockscreen was active when I tried to turn wi-fi on.
I am not complaining, I am just saying. I won't be turning wi-fi off and problem solved, for now.

thanks that's all I needed to know (rest of your reply is fascinating but OT). maybe someone could add this to the 2nd post, because all it currently says is

  • A reliable Wi-Fi crash for very specific devices -- if you had it seemingly randomly it should be fixed for you now
  • Some 3rd party camera apps may show unexpected behaviour - Instagram does not work


Dazzozo thanks, your ROM looks like a go-er.

Read few posts back and you'll find that the entire exchange would have been unnecessary, had you read Daz's explanation and resorted to the obvious temporary solution without expressing your terrible sadness at the state of software, which is offered to you without charge.

No comments apart from the issues other people are having, mainly wifi and font glitch.

And battery life seems to be pretty awesome!

Thanks Dazzozo!

This is perfect ROM for the first R1 version.

I think that pictures have more noise then on stock based ROMs

Right, the details of R2 are nailed down, we're just waiting on a little something else to be worked out (non-CM) before a release, and I need to pass a pre-release to someone for testing.

Always happy to help with testing. :)

Oh God, I probably shouldn't have said that. :P

No guys, we're waiting on a specific person with a particular "strain" of an issue.

Yes, the ROM updates will (should) be OTA, though I've never actually tested the mechanism so this should be fun. :D
