Siyah was never able to change charging voltages. It also was, at best, only able to change misc chargers to charge at 650 mA instead of 450 mA. I really wish GM would rip out the code he has in - it's incredibly confusing and misleading because anything above 650 mA does NOTHING.

I've flashed, wiped, wiped again flashed again. Of course using kernel cleaning script etc. No go. Wifi was working fine with siyah and nightly 17 and works fine with the stock CM kernel on nightly 19. I may flash back to nightly 17 because I love my Siyah kernel that much :)
Please don't discuss problems with alternate kernels in Cyanogenmod official threads. Only the stock Cyanogenmod kernel is supported by the team.

Speaking of that, coming soon (needs more testing):
Mali 3-step voltage/clock control
Forward-port legacy hotplug code (same as was in the last Daily Driver GB release) as stand-hotplug seems to be buggy **** even if it offers some nice features.
Some reworks in arch/arm/kernel/smp.c that may eliminate some RCU stall SoDs - however I believe most SoDs were caused by remaining bugs in stand-hotplug and the above change should fix them.

I thought a few patches I put in last week fixed the SoDs, but it turns out that I had disabled my SetCPU profiles at the time. If you don't use screen-off profiles with underclocking you should be stable until the above patches make it in. It could take a few days with the new kernel building code.

As to NFC - Those who installed hacks/mods previously (especially the Gingerbread forward-port that floated around for a while) may have hosed up their device and need to wipe. A common theme seems to be that those with issues were ones running hacks/mods. Those who were self-building and cherry-picked my commit from review should be fine - but I think I see only one person in that category and they are fine.

The change will NOT be reverted. It is now meeting the CM standard and I'm surprised it took this long to make the change. Internal storage is not getting reported as removable on my device. There may be some small board config changes needed to get everything tweaked up again though. There is a possibility that adjusting to the new mounting system may require a wipe.
*so much sig updating needed*

It's an option under storage, storage configuration for this.

Codeworx posted this on another thread:

Changes:
switched mountpoints for sdcards to match cm standard:
/mnt/emmc = internal storage
/mnt/sdcard = external sdcard

eMMC is defined as embedded multimedia card which means an internal storage.
from an technical point samsung and lg are doing it wrong to name it sdcard. htc is doing it right since the beginning.
And because this is the CM standard, we'll simply follow it.

You can cry about this change, but it will not help you. This is how it will be in future.
We know you'll cry. ;)

The menu item "install zip from internal sdcard" in recovery now points to the internal sdcard. It's not reversed anymore.

The storage menu at systemsettings -> storage -> storage configuration does exactly what it says now. It's not reversed anymore.

I wanted to do this change in cm7 a long time ago, but didn't want to hear all the terrible crying about it. Now it's time for it. ;)

Edit: C'mon, stop crying. Goto systemsettings -> storage -> storage configuration and toggle it like you want it to be.

So what's really needing to be wiped? Data or System? Or Both if needed, then restore from TiBu

Someone may have already brought this up and I missed it but has anyone notice that the drop down notification menu is able to be accessed by swiping downward on any part of the screen? This causes a problem with widgets (eg. calendar, Google voice, etc) that are scrollable. When I try to scroll down to view upcoming calendar events or scroll voicemails I get my notification tray.

Not seeing this. Just flashed latest nightly to catch up with you guys but not seeing this behavior. Even added a couple scrollable Widgets to see if I got the same result- no happening here :-\

I can't replicate it. I tried with the apps you mentioned and it worked fine...

When I pulled up ES File Explorer and it had switched the internal and microSD for the default file browsing folder, I couldn't help but cry. It was just so unexpected... but seriously thanks for the background info. ; )

Thanks for the quick reply. I never knew that Samsung had got the mounting points wrong. Samsung phones are the only Android phones I have owned.

OK so if you had flashed the previous leaked NFC, just deleting system won't resolve it, you need a full wipe.
