    Asus Padfone 2

    [Kernel] Stone custom kernel for PF2 OC/UV/etc

    Do you think it will be easy to enable USB OTG on the phone side of the Padfone 2? At the moment, only the Padfone Station supports USB OTG, but could this be solved by patching the kernel?
  2. I live in a city with a rather large free public Wifi network, which is good news for my phone bill. However, it has some coverage dead spots, some of which I pass through daily. When passing through dead spots, my phone can switch between Wifi and mobile data multiple times. This is to be expected. However, what I did not expect was that my phone soft resets (phone stops responding, screen goes black, phone vibrates, Asus logo appears, Asus boot animation appears). This happens almost every time I pass through two particular dead spots (it may happen elsewhere in the city, but I don't go near those areas normally). I've tried a factory reset; this did not work (and caused further problems vis-a-vis SMS backup restoration; see my other thread). I've tried turning off auto-sync; no effect. The only thing that stops it is turning off Wifi when passing through that area. Now, this may sound like a "the streetlight turns off when I walk under it" situation, but I have managed to reproduce this event no less than 3 times in a row on the same day at one of these dead spots, each time with my phone connected to my laptop via ADB and running logcat. However, I lose the ADB connection just before the Padfone reboots, so I'm not sure if the logcat dumps are informative. I'm posting one anyway, truncated completely arbitrarily to fit under 2MB. What is going on with my phone? reboots.sanitized.txt

    Anyone tried to backup/restore SMSes on JB firmware?

    I don't use Titanium Backup, because I'm not rooted, since rooting has not so many benefits as yet (no Nandroid, no custom ROMs, no un-rooting method so you permanently void your warranty, etc.).
  4. Does anyone have problems with backing up or restoring their SMS? I had to factory reset my phone, which wiped my SMSes. Luckily, most of my messages were still on my old phone. I tried to transfer my SMSes from my old phone (HTC Desire Z) to my Padfone 2 using a few apps, but none of them work properly. They either restore only some messages, or just crash. Restoring on my old phone works 100%, so I don't think it's a corrupted file problem. Funny thing is, the app I was using worked perfectly when my Padfone 2 was running the ICS stock firmware, before I updated to JB. Quite irritating. Tried: SMS Backup and Restore SMS Backup+ GO SMS Pro Titanium Backup (using their XML backup method) UPDATE 2013-03-11: Latest version of SMS Backup and Restore has introduced an 'Alternate Restore' function that successfully restores all messages. Timestamps are messed up, though; the dev is working on it. Also, from talking to Titanium Track, TiBu's XML restore fails because the Padfone 2 runs out of RAM. Imagine that; a phone with 2GB of RAM running out! Must be a bug in the firmware causing a memory leak. They've stopped responding to my emails, so I assume they won't/can't fix it.
