I've read you can substitute this by pressing ALT twice. As I have not yet flashed CM on my MS², I didn't check that out - but it's certainly worth a try!

Hi all, i hope i am not repeating this question, i have had a good look around and can't find my answer!..

I had a bit of a failure while trying out some new custom ROMs and the only way to get my phone back was to flash the sbf;

Branding: Retail UK
Version: 4.1-22 NO DOWNGRADE
Android Version: 2.3.4

on this page..


Can i flash new custom ROM's now or am i stuck on the new retail version? My attempts to try have been unsuccessful.. is there a step i am missing?

You can apply custom ROMs, but for some of them (MIUI and CM7 by tezet) you need to follow this tutorial:
If you want another ROM, read that ROM's thread and see how you should apply it, the procedure might be a little different

My friend asked me to install this rom on his European milestone 2 with stock android 2.2. Can u give me some instructions on how to do it and what to watch out for? Should I root it first with superoneclick and then follow the instructions from page 1? Is there a possibility of bricking the phone? tnx

Just change baseband via Baseband changer from milestone 2 toolbox. It has been solved so many times here. It is same situation over and over again - try to use search next time.

Look at here https://www.google.cz/search?sugexp=...elopers.com%2F and here https://www.google.cz/search?sugexp=...elopers.com%2F
my quick comparsion of ROM speed (smoothness)
(from fastest to slowest; bold one is the ROM I'm currently using)
  1. MS2Ginger 5 (-Danik-) / CM7 (tezet)
  2. Stock Gingerbread ROM (UK SBF)
  3. MIUI (will5)
  4. CM10 (tezet)
  5. Stock Froyo ROM (UK SBF)

Default CM7 - Light sensor settings

Today I finally found a satisfying setting for the light sensor (see screenshot) and I thought it was worth sharing, since the default setting was very irresponsive for me.

If you want to try it, go to Settings > CyanogenMod > Display > Automatic Backlight then tick "Use custom".
Then enter "Edit other levels", Load defaults (this should limit your levels to 5), scroll to the end of the screen, Set number of levels, select 7 and then set the values according to the screenshot.
You will notice that some values are maxed at 254 instead of 255. This is because it seems that 255 might cause issues.

Other settings:

Window length: 10s
Reset Threshold: 400 lux
Sample interval: 1s
Allow light decrease: Checked
Decrease hysteresis: 50%

Default GPS signal [solved]

For those who has issues with the gps signal:

...a long time ago lol

Just extract the file in /data, it'll replace the original folder "location". Reboot and done.
