GPS icon doesnt blink! I am not getting locks either! What to do?
A = GPS icon will sometime blink and sometime won't! However, GPS will always work. Use NB AngryGPS to test lock-on-satellite.
As per my experience some Vibrant users won't get GPS Locks easily. I recommend them to set server to CHINA via Faster Fix App included.
My Phone gets heated up while charging?
A = That's ok. It's something related to new power source driver that you need not to worry about.
Lag!! Lag!! Nag the developer!!
A = I hope you understand terms of downloading BETA ROM. However, we have come to stage where ROM is really smooth with no Lag
Will face unlock work on Vibrant?
A = No, it will not work. We do not have a FFC, and hacking it to work with the rear facing camera is less than practical. Face Unlock won't work v8 onwards.
But The OP has a separate .zip we can flash to make it work.
A= Yes, it is for people with FFC. However, you may not get perfect picture for now.
Can I use this as my daily driver?
A = It depends on the type of use you give to the phone. The one thing I can definitely encourage you to do is to take it for a spin, most things work, and what works, works very well. Make sure you read what are issues before you install.
Can I get WiFi Calling on this ?
A = NO, stop asking! As I am not in U.S. and not on T-Mobile Carrier, I cannot develop/port it. Not even with anyone volunteering help.
I cannot see FACEBOOK syncing my contact? :eek:
Facebook needs to update its app to make SYNC compatible with ICS. This has nothing to do with ROM.
I suggest please review and suggest this feature to FB people on Market!!
What do I need to do if coming from Froyo, or GB, or Eclair, or Donut? I'm already rooted and all else!
A = My only recommendation - to avoid any issues: Do a clean install of CM7, and then upgrade to this - ICS. If you lose your baseband after installation, I prefer you ODIN to LIDROID
instead of Stock. And then get to ICS.
After flashing through CWM, I get a message "offset x*xx". What is this?
A = This is a security feature in Ice Cream Sandwich. Read about it HERE
I'm thinking about flashing different modems, anyone knows of working modems out there for this?
A = Yes, most CM7 modems will work for you. However, according to me, KB5 is best for signal reception and data speed.
My phone says it's running low on space, what do I do?
A = There are a couple of reasons this may be reason. Most common one is that your /datadata is getting packed, use a diskutility to find out what is taking so much space in there. Some others have reported that wiping cache from recovery clears the message - these users are receiving the error particularly after batch restoring with Titanium. Read trouble shooting.
Can I disable LED Notification?
A = Yes. Untick Settings -> Display -> Pulse notification light.
No Service at all after flashing this ROM? No Baseband?
Don't worry, this happens in rare case which can be easily tackled.
You have two options:
a> ODIN to Stock, Root your phone, Install CM7, Install ICS Passion.
b> ODIN to Lidroid, Reboot in Recovery, Wipe all, Install ICS Passion.
I prefer LIDROID ROM because its easy method to get recovery mod, rooted ROM, and most important of all Gingerbread Bootloader.
People on other end of ROM cannot hear you clearly on incoming calls?
This is mute/unmute issue. When your receive call, mute it once and then unmute.
This issue appears in rare case.
911 Works ?
No, I am not sure at all.Frankly, I haven't tested.
But as per latest PM from atinm, I am told 911 with SIM CARD works.
Without sim card doesn't. You are warned!
Getting Best Battery Life
To get best battery life all you need to do is "Charge Cycles"
For ICS Passion v8,
Charge Cycle means completely charging your phone too 100%, reboot and LET IT DRAIN UPTO 0%
Now charge it to 100% again without interuption and then reboot.
This is one/first charge cycle. Also get unused toggles off and remove unused widgets.
