Didn't realize there was a new GAPPS. Will try that out. Thanks!

EDIT: That did the trick. Thanks again!

Just clear data in camera app and it will likely work fine.

Reason: the default setting for max brightness only gets triggered when >10001, but...

* Note: Actually, there is one more level. Shining a flashlight directly into the sensor give the maximum of 16000 (as shown in screenshot). Ideally we would set 5 levels and set the fifth from 10001 to infinity, but the levels software only allows settings of up to 3000.

Thanks! This was way non-obvious for me, but looks very interesting. I've set my settings and will report back. "Thanks" button pressed.

Shrug, guess I'll just stay on 5/6 and keep trying new nightly releases till it goes away haha

I use Go Launcher and Exchange contacts synch. No problems here.

Seems to be frequently reported by those who did a TiBu restore, even an apps-only one. Most of the people in question used the "ghetto NFC hack" prior to the NFC support being properly integrated.

Either way ... I guess I'm off to do some searching 'n reading and learn how to extract/modify/edit the CWM zip to install CHL and CH as user apps.

I think it's just CarHome.apk - I don't remember there being a CarHomeLauncher.

Samsung Car Home also works well (other than not being able to control dock audio redirection from the app), but it's a bitch to get it from the market.

Yes - right now all GS2 variants use the same file. I'm trying to get the build system to override the file for I777 only since nearly all I777 users are in the US, but it's one of those build system intracacies that's a little annoying.

Eventually I want to figure out a way to handle wifi region in a more generic manner, since I9100 really needs to handle multi-region usage, but getting the build system to replace that one file for I777 is a temp workaround.

CarHomeLauncher is required for CH to show up in the app drawer (link). At a minimum, CHL needs to be in /system/app to work correctly. With CHL in /system/app, it seems CH may run correctly as a user app (link, posts 1, 4 & 5). However dannyfritz's experience is that CH needs to be in /system/app.

Using the aokp one works great as a system app though. just gets cleared with each nightly.

Since CH can be automatically invoked by docking our phone into the official Samsung car dock, (link, posts 2 & 3) perhaps some users have CH launch without installing the CHL component (as implied in my first link). I don't use an official Samsung car dock; instead I rely on the Start with Bluetooth option. But that isn't enabled by default, so I need to manually launch CH once to configure it.

Bottom line ... I guess I will be hanging onto my CWM zip and reflashing after each upgrade. That is unless the CM team can persuade Google to allow them to include CH in the ROM now that it's abandonware.

Latest build 20120509 - after ending a phone call, I get kicked back out all the way to my lockscreen? WTF??? <-- Is this happening to anyone else? I've already tried clearing out the phone app's data and I've wiped cache and dalvik-cache again in CWM but no luck...phone keeps doing this.

Just wondering if it's the latest build before I have to perform a FULL wipe.

*UPDATE* Ok, don't know why but I ended up fixing it so if you run into this same issue just go into system settings > security > remove pattern <-- this is what I had but you might be using a pin instead? > reboot phone > then I went back into settings and re-established my pattern lock and the phone seems to be working correctly again. why it was giving me an issue this time around tho...

**UPDATE 2:** Dammit, rebooted the phone and the issue came back...don't know what the problem is...I like having my lockscreen secured so removing it isn't an option.

I ended up clearing data for nfc service and tags app and then reboot
Issue returns once in a while, not sure what causes it, could be new nightly flashes, but clearing data for those two and rebooting always fixes it.

Using tibu's clear function to clear data doesnt always work, I tap and hold the app from tibu and open system details and force stop and clear.

Hmm...I guess I'll hold off on doing a FULL WIPE since I think the 20120509 build is causing me some grief...I've re-flashed it 3 times and made sure to wipe both cache and dalvik-cache each time and still getting this where whenever a call is ended, I am booted out to the lockscreen <-- end call > automatically have my pattern lockscreen show up (even though I ended the call w/in seconds and I have my phone set up as to not go inactive until 2 minutes) and I have to redraw my lockscreen to get back into my phone.

I have noticed that without the lockscreen on, once a phone call is ended, you get kicked back out to the homescreen. <-- Is this supposed to be a feature? Because if it is, then there's a bug if a lockscreen is enabled!

I'd rather have it like the 5/8 build wherein after a phone call is ended, you stay within the dialer.

Pretty sure if you go to settings in the Phone app there is an option to select where you want to go after a call ends, or maybe that was GoContacts.

Also, if anything, a full wipe would FIX these little bugs that you are experiencing. I am running the latest nightly with no issues.

By latest nightly you mean 5/10?

I know a full wipe would *most likely* fix this issue but I don't feel like wiping out my entire system for this. I'm hoping the 5/10 build fixes it.

And no, there is no setting in CM9 that allows me to revert back to "area of my choice".

That most likley is a GoContacts app solution. (I like GoSMSPro but don't care too much for their other products.)

We'll see...I'll be flashing the 5/10 build when I get home tonight. Otherwise I'll be doing a FULL WIPE.
