First and foremost I'd like to say,
Thanks for your hard work pwncakes!
&thanks to the CM team and anyone else who has made 4.3 accessible for us.
I downloaded this ROM a few hours after it was posted, and I've got to admit, my phone has never felt smoother. I try not to throw those words around loosely, granted, this is the only 4.3 ROM I've flashed so far.
With all that being said, I've actually had the biggest scare I've had in a while in regards to my phone.
My phone was charging, and as usual, I check to see how much battery it currently had. I noticed a few apps still running in the background, and being a bit anal about small things like that has given me the bad habit to restart my phone on a whim. So I restart my phone while it was still plugged into the charger, left it, and went off to shower. Half an hour later I come back to my phone, with the empty right triangle on my status bar! I figured, wtf, I'll just restart it and it'll be all good again. To my unfortunate dismay, I was proven wrong.
I usually don't panic in these situations, but when I found that I lost my IMEI I ****ted myself. I had a back up made a long time ago when it was posted in the synergy thread. (Remember those days?) This wasn't the first time it's happened to me. I have actually lost my IMEI on a "beans" ROM a while back, I was confident, So I figured, alright, restore and we're all good. I check my folders, and I was reminded of how I transferred/deleted everything on my phone to my PC. I still didn't worry, but my ass clenched a little. Finally, I run to my computer and find that the only things I actually KEPT were ****ing picturessss omg, and some random apps I downloaded from different sources. I started to sweat.
I restarted my phone for the third time, and everything is back to normal. ROFL
As soon as that happened I checked my IMEI, verified it with the back of my phone, and went to making a new backup.
I'm not sure of what may have caused this, but please, PLEASE, everyone make an EFS backup, if you haven't already.
Thanks for letting me vent.
