Just curious. Its most likely my device.

I noticed that log cat for the browser restart has been posted. Hopefully I will get the logs for maps up if it happens again.

As for the Maps issue, I'm not sure if its something with the GPS lib or if its something with actual maps app...or something totally different ...But with AR29 I've started compiling GPS lib from source instead of using a pre built lib...so hopefully that fixes it. If not then yea I'll need a logcat log of the issue.

I'm gonna post this again in case someone missed it...AR29 will require a full wipe (will also post this with download link)...There's been a ton of updates , and some of them are pretty major (such as skia/webkit rebased off of CodeAuroras, some kgsl, vidc, pmem updates to kernel, tons of fixes all throughout the framework, updated display driver with CAF, tons of updates from AOSP master, plus tons of more stuff.. So a full wipe is definitely going to be needed. I also think I got the home screen stuttering fixed...I believe it was due to the CodeAurora performance class added awhile back, which controlled CPU speed, and scrolling speed during certain situations. But I'll need you guys to confirm for me.

I will have AR29 up tomorrow sometime, unless something big comes along...but that's atleast the plan..Would have had it up sooner but the CAF webkit/skia rebase took longer than expected and also trying to figure out the stuttering bug has consumed a lot of my time. So start getting everything backed up because it will be HIGHLY advised NOT to do a dirty install.

Even if this is the case, just out of curiosity, why were only a few people experiencing the stutter and not all of us? And the strangest thing is that after more than a week of use, AR28 is buttery smooth for me, just like AR26 was.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest that it may be a "burn in" thing like with radios. It seems like (and would make a little sense), the portions that control the software hardware interface take a little time to work in after install... I mean, as a PC tech, that makes no sense to me, but it seems common on the Inspire.
That still doesn't explain the fact that most of us didn't see it (or that it was so minor, even at first, that we didn't notice it).

Google has posted an update to Maps today. Changelog simply says "Critical bug fix". I've just updated and it doesn't crash any more

Yeah, same here, it's not like it's a living thing that can "learn" on the way...

Well...as for some seeing it and some not, honestly I "think" possibly 2 reasons...either being it was so minor that some didn't even notice..or plus I figured out if you "swipe" the screen slowly it was when it stuttered, but if you "flinged" the screen it was still smooth...so it could have been just the way the person swiped the screen. At first I didn't notice the stutter at all, but then started seeing it when I swiped or slowly swiped the screen,...but with reverting the CAF performance class I have noticed that now its more smooth and its instant no matter how you swipe/fling the screen. Also it could have all depended on how much load was on the CPU at the time (just guessing)

But again, this is all a guess... For me its barely even noticeable, so it could just be me getting use to it and not seeing it now. As I said earlier I'm not 100% if this fixed it...there's a chance it had nothing to do with it.

Yeah, that makes sense about the way how you swipe the screen. As far as CPU load, since AR27 I've been monitoring the CPU a bit more than I ever did before and what Elixir 2 tells me, the CPU on my device mostly spends it's time in the range of 729-883MHz (not including idle state).

I mentioned the aroma installer before on this thread and you told me you didn't offer enough features or mods for it to be useful but I wasn't intending for you to build just your rom around the installer but as a side project like these 4 great devs did. They are the 4 leading ics devs for the photon. Miui cm9 cna and aosp. All 4 of the the most popular ics builds with every option available you could possible think of to mix up, kernels, battery tweaks, governors, gapps, apps, launchers, ect. Its worth taking a look for whenever the devs here at inspire are willing to play together.

I just wanted to chime in and say thanks for all the hard work that went into this.. I was a long time CM7 user, and finally decided it was time to try something new, and different. So far my experience has been excellent. I'm pretty much a novice when it comes to the nuts, and bolts of these things, and if I didn't know an better, I would swear this was a completed product.. My GPS locks in seconds, and is much snappier.

I love the dialer, and texting. The menus are beautifully laid out. I could swear that my bluetooth devices pair, and connect faster. The speaker volume is much better.

A few small and observations.. Remember, I'm not at all knowledgeable with what goes into creating roms, etc, and fully understand that this is a work in progress.. These are just the average guy on the street observations:


I'm using Go-Launcher, and the Minimal Text clock, and can't seem to access the alarm functions- Only the desk clock. To solve this I pointed the MT clock to launch Gentle Alarm. So far so good.

I seem to lose wi-fi occasionally, which is resolved by re-booting..

I experienced the GPS re-boot issue only once so far. It re-booted normally without having to pull the battery. No big deal. I have noticed that on occasion when starting Maps, I get a black screen, with the blue directional arrow in the lower left portion.. Restarting Maps resolves this.. Again, no big deal.

Finally, when I receive an email, I cant access it from the pull down notification screen.. Previously I was able to click on the email, and it would open the Gmail app..

Just want to make it clear that these are not complaints.. I'm just trying to offer a little input on some minor things that sometimes slip through the cracks, as can happen with projects of this magnitude. I can't even imagine how awesome the final product will be..

Thanks again! Great work!
