[SOLVED] [Q] Notification bar broken in CM10.X and a whole string of problems.
Hello, my problems started when switching from CM10.2 to try out a CM7.2 based ROM that was a stripped down version of MokeeOS. I disliked it so I then flashed the original CM7.2 and everything seemed fine, however I missed the app support of Android 4.2.2+ and decided to go back to CM10.1.
For some reason my phone switched off during the flashing of CM10.1 (Quarx's 9th of July build) and was screwed. I pulled up RSD Lite and went to flash an SBF and start again. I used this SBF [DEFYPLUS_U3_4.5.1-134_DFP-231_AU_SIGN_UCADEFYEMARAB1B80AA004.0R_PDS03C_USAJR DNGIBRANZ_P021_A030_Service1FF.sbf] Everything was fine and everything worked. I then went on to root the device so I could install CM10.1 and noticed I had trouble rooting with SuperOneClick. It always hung step #7 which said something along the lines of "cannot mount, are you root?". I hesitantly tried an APK based root called Farmaroot which surprisingly worked which then allowed me to install 2nd init recovery. Here's where it gets weird. I flashed CM10.1 and the corresponding version of GApps and rebooted and everything seemed fine. However the first thing I noticed is that it only asked me for my Google Account, not the device language or which Network I should connect to, I thought nothing of it for some reason and continued thinking everything ok. However I then noticed that the notification slider and the quick settings menu were both inoperative, no notifications or tiles could be seen. Pressing the home button did not work, nor did long pressing it to show currently open apps.
I reflashed CM10.1 using TWR and had the same problem. I then flashed CM10.2 and another version of GApps and had the same problem.
Is this a problem originating from the fact I could not root the device to begin with? I am pretty sure I also tried this SBF
Where should I go from here? I'm currently in exam period so I am unable to extensively search for answers or mess around. The device is currently wiped.
I'm using a Defy+ by the way.
