Default Wired headset button

Has anyone noticed wired headset buttons not working? I haven't tested the mic, but I imagine that doesn't work either.

I'm using Skullcandy 50/50s. The icon doesn't even show up that it's got a mic on it...could they have removed support for it? I doubt it though...

What ROM are you using? Some of the AOSP ROM's have problems with headsets, others don't.

Using Skyradier Zeus...I was planning on trying other ROMs as well, I'll see if it works.

Edit, I got it to work. I'd have to get the OS to "recognize" it by hitting the other buttons a couple times. It then detected it as a mic headset and worked fine.

It was fine when I was running RMK's Ginger Sense and, lately - been running SR's Zeus R1.1.1 (newest) with several headphone/mic sets, including those standalone stereo only headsets - all good for me.

Looking at the physical design of the Inc 2's plug location and the shape/size of some of the headset/mics combo available to users, my feeling is that when it's not fully inserted or seated properly, and 1 of the 4 pins out aren't making contact, trouble then arise.

There was another post about someone using iPhone's in-line headset/mic and had issues (I used a noise-cancelling one branded by Sharper Image for iphone, BB & it worked in all of my devices, including the tablet.)
