Am a android newbie and so installing ROM for the first time and Cognition is the first.
my sgs2 was running KE8 rooted kernel and stock ROM.
I backed up all apps and data using Titanimum Backup -free version and it backed up around 140 items successfully.
I installed Cognition ROM using CWM recovery from SD card.
The installation went on for a while and then after successful installation i did a reboot.
The reboot took some time .once rebooted I set up google account.(thats the default).
Then first thing i did was installing the Titanium Backup.And then the restore of the backup i had done. I had to install apps one by one.(thats the case with free version i think). Then after 100% restore i found that many of the apps were missing.Not sure why.
Then as mentioned in this thread FM radio was not working and so I downloaded the Cognition update.zip. It automatically opened up ROM Manager and it asked for rebooting to CWM recovery. But on reboot all i got was a Warning icon on top of the Android symbol.I waited for a while and nothing happened.pressed power button and then restarted the phone. tried this coupla times and nothing happened.
on the third attempt there was warning +Android icon+ a bunch of horizontal lines.
Then when i pressed power button it somehow went into CWM recovery mode. then i installed the update from SD card.
But the FM radio is not working now either.
Also the booting time of Cognition is much longer than stock ROM.
This is my experience with Cognition so far.
plz answer my questions and also need suggestions to get a clean install.
I now tried entering the recovery mode using the power button menu and it loaded CWM fine. And then i installed update.zip again.
Now FM radio is working.
1)Even if i dont have a sim card , signal strength icon shows up.
2)On pressing home button the unlock screen does not show up when the phone is unlocked.mebbe this is a feature.
