Besides the fact that I seem to be only periodically getting SBC to work correctly, I just now discovered that when I make video recordings there is no sound.
Unfortunately, it's looking like I'm gonna have to go back to the stock kernel.
edit: Well, I jumped the gun...the sound had nothing to do with hardware or software. The 'record with audio' box got unchecked somehow. But, I'm still only successful with SBC about 50% of the time. Not saying it's the kernel's fault...I'm sure it's my phone...or the operator!
