I'll hunt it down and disable it.

Can't enable wifi, and therefore can't enable wifi hotspot. It either says error, or restarts the phone.

What launcher do you recommend by the way?

He told about "zeam launcher".

For me, no wifi problem : my personal router has wifi in it and I can use it.
Will try this evening and if I have problem, I'll report it here...

Watcher have you applied update 1? Because I think the original release may have had bugs with the wifi which could lead to reboots. I think I forgot to push the updated wireless drivers (for the kernel modifications). Also wifi hotspot may not work at all I haven't tested it (its the same kernel as the original phone so if it wasn't in any of the ROMS by Alcatel my bet would be it probably can't work / isn't supported by the wireless chipset). The current port is a massive hack (its basically based off a ROM for OT990 since I couldn't pull the Froyo sources. The git for them was down I could only pull the gingerbread sources :/) its a stop gap before I build a proper version via Cynogenmod sources (Gingerbread). On the kernel end of things most of the stuff for Gingerbread is there so its mainly the userland / setting it up for the funny partition layout (custpack).

Yes I applied update 1, then update 2.

Also, the browser is crashing hard on some sites, perhaps even random sites.
Last thing I tried is checking the arrivals on manchester airport, but every time I tried it crashed.

Thanks I'll look into the browser crashes. I just realized I didn't update the memory values for the lowmemorykiller which can explain the lag we are seeing in the ROM.

I'm planning a fairly large update in a week or two to get most of this stuff sorted out. I'm hoping to get most of the compatibility issues fixed via this update (initially we might regress on stuff like camera support at the worst case but I'm hoping to eliminate all force closes). My plan is to get rid of most of the reported issues via this update (I might break a few minors things but I'm hoping we get a more usable ROM).

If you want a test for updates, I can test it every time you may want, even before your "final" release
