I decided to install this ROM and, right from the very first boot, I have been unable to pick up a signal (even in areas where my Rezound gets a perfect signal).
Let me make sure I understand you correctly. Your Eris was activated and working on the service for calls/3G et cetera before trying this ROM?
I don't know if this might help, but...
1. Download "APN OnOff" from the market and install it.
2. Run it and and choose "Show APN list" in the middle of the screen.
3. Press the Menu soft key and choose "Reset to default" on the right.
4. You can try it again now, if this doesn't work, reboot and try again.
If that doesn't work:
A. Download and install "APN Backup and Restore" from the market.
B. Download the zip file I have attached.
C. Unzip it and copy or move the "ApnBackupRestore" folder it creates (and the folder's contents) to the root of your SD card.
D. Run APN Backup and Restore and choose "Delete APNs". Then choose "Restore APNs" and restore them from the xml file I gave you, which should automatically be listed when you choose that.
Once again, you can try before and after a reboot. Hopefully one of these methods works for you.
FYI the APN backup I attached is from a version of xtrSENSE that was based off the July OTA (probably xtrSENSE v4.5 through 4.6.5). Fresh from a boot, without having done anything else first.
