Some issues with Task's ROM
So I finally got around to installing the last of Task's 4.2.2 JB roms (6/24/2013 release) after using Task's 4.1.2 release for a long time (if it ain't broke don't fix it?). I did a full wipe, flashed the ROM, gapps, and put back the data for the apps I installed from the play store (not the system app data). I verified the MD5 sum of the ROM when I downloaded to my computer and again after I moved it to my phone, so I'm reasonably sure I got a good copy of the ROM.
One issue I have is that when I got to "Kernel Settings" in the settings menu, the settings app force closes with the message "Unfortunately Settings has stopped". Not sure what to do here - is the thing that manages the kernel settings something separate that I could clear the app data for?
Another thing is that I used to be able to have the wireless network name the phone is on in the pull-down status shade. I looked for it in ROM Control -> General UI where it was before but I can't find it there or anywhere else.
Battery life isn't as good as it was on 4.1.2 either. A couple of times I've looked at the phone and it had 40-50% battery left, and when I looked again a few hours later, it was dead. The battery was completely drained. I suppose it could be the battery, but this started happening after I installed 4.2.2 so I doubt it. The battery is about 9 months old. No apps were running at the time the battery was drained - I had closed anything that was running earlier.
I poked around in the (closed) ROM thread but couldn't find anything about the kernel settings issue or the wireless name setting (other than when Task put it in the ROM).
Anyone got any ideas?
