* By "completely stock" in the poll question, I mean completely stock CM9, not the stock Android that came with your phone.
* By submitting a poll choice, you agree that you are running COMPLETELY VANILLA CM9; STOCK KERNEL; STOCK FRAMEWORK; STOCK BUILD.PROP

For this test, do any of your updated GPS kernels count as stock?

Thanks.

Awkward experience, I tested it with my first Vibrant (I have 2) and it didn't work, so i voted The call failed. Then i thought about it, and tried it with my other Vibrant, and returned it to stock CM9, and it worked. Unfortunately the call supporter i got was a big dick about me calling to check in if my location was posted etc. So i didn't call multiple times, but the first time i called with second Vibrant, it worked.
I honestly think its just random for this to happen.

You didn't reboot after the call on your first Vibrant did you? Get me that dumpstate file...

I said in the OP if it fails get me the file

My bad, I actually already flashed another ROM.
I'll get back onto you with that possibly tomorrow. Busy studying for a test tomorrow, so I may get back to you on that. I'll call them again.

No problem, it's just important to get that file when it does fail, so I can take a look. I raised the note to red letters and a bigger size, so hopefully everyone else that tries will see it.

The instructions on how to get that file are also in the above link.

Can the dumpstate file be created with terminal? I want to help test, but adb is somehow not working for me. Is there some way that I can produce the file using only commands on my phone?

Thanks,

I tested and reported success in the poll.

I discovered one thing in my testing - it may be of interest to other testers.

I use the "dialer one" app to dial phone numbers. When I dialed 911 and pressed the "call" button, the call did not directly dial - instead I wound up at the built in dialer screen. On the dialer screen "911" was in the number display, and I had to press the "call" button on the build in dialer to actually make the call. Typically a second press of the "call" button is not required to make a call.

Bottom line - when testing 911, if there are any unexpected results, make sure that there is not another dialing application involved in the process. Similarly if there is a real emergency you may want to just use the real dialer.

I hope this is helpful (feel free to leave a thanks if it is

Maybe Dialer One defers the 911 call to the standard dialer just to be safe.
