First I apologize for opening a new thread instead of posting in the CM11 thread, but till now I don't have write privileges there.
I recently unlocked and permrooted my Desire HD then installed Mustaavalkosta's CM11, but as a newbie, I have some issues I require assistance with. To note that I did an extensive reading before I did any rooting and installing a new rom.
1- I find myself not hearing anything during calls. It's sort of like my internal speaker got muted somehow after installing CM11. I tried multiple apps to no avail. I read somewhere that if u fail to flash the boot.img in the rom u might get this issue, but thing is I did flash the boot.img after I installed the rom and the recovery and wiped the cache. I can hear the calls with the external speaker turned on and with the headphone, so I think it's not a hardware issue but a software one. Any fix to this?
2- After each restart, the UI somehow resets itself. I mean many of the settings and widgets I use either get reset or vanish like the sleep option in seetings for example (I put the screen to turn off after a 1 min and it resets to 15 sec after each reboot which is annoying as hell). Also, many apps like Dolphin and GoSMSPro shortcuts vanish from the home screen after each reboot, while whatsapp for example doesn't. I'm not able to figure why some app shortcuts vanish while others don't.
3- I tried to use ART instead of dalvik, but yet again after each reboot, dalvik is back. So effectively, I can't benefit from ART.
4- other minor bugs which I will not mention for now till I solve the 3 main ones.
If someone can provide some assistance (mainly for the first issue which is the major one), I will be very grateful. It's becoming increasingly annoying and embarrassing to turn the speaker on every time I receive a call, bc most of the times I am in a room with other individuals or in a meeting, and I am forced to have them hear the conversations bc not always I can excuse myself.
