Just for sanity sake, try renaming your data.img to data.bak and boot. See if wifi is OK...

I just booted again, and granted I only have a few apps installed - wifi worked flawlessly...
Once I turn on wifi, android reboots in loops, going to try the wifi fix, thanks arrrghhh

I have noticed that when my babe is playing up and falling back in to the XDANDROID animation and just can't get network, that I am also not getting the "x app has just been granted super user privileges" messages. Maybe there is just too much going on. So maybe you have something there?

Anyone any ideas on my CoPilot causing freezing of the device after c 30 minutes. Only way is to restart by pulling the battery out.

I'm still on the build from the original first thread.
On the build from the original first thread...? So that means you're not on GBX0C, you're on 0B...? I'm confused.

You should definitely upgrade, as there's a lot of GPS related fixes in the newest build. GPS used to freeze up on me after extended usage, but now it's fine. Might want to try other apps too, like Google Nav - just to rule out that CoPilot app you're using.

Any ideas if I am overlooking something?

I uploaded logs in http://pastebin.com/4G4XKcnV
You also appear to be on a slightly older build, but I don't think that's critical - this issue is usually kernel related. Does it happen on .27? 3.3.3?

Yea, it seems if you start straight away on the newest 3.3.3 kernel, wifi will not work properly...

I was always starting on .27, so it never failed for me .

I'm actually only been using .27, which is bundled in GBX0C right? How do I get on kernel 3.3.3? You just need to replace the zImage and modules files right? Was never able to get the other kernels to work. It would always get stuck before you can get to the xandroid boot up screen.

Are you using everything from the first post? You're not reusing anything from another build/bundle? (Except for maybe ts-calibration...)

Also, silly question - but you're using a RHOD yes? Which one?

Did you have to do the wifi-nvram trick before? That's a necessary a step for some regardless.

I have the same problem trying the other kernels. I've got a system which is running well with .27. To try a new kernel I copy (and overright the zImage file in the \andbootgbx0c directory, then try to start HaRET.exe. No go, it hangs after about a screenfull of text boot strings (never gets to the startup animation). I've tried this on 3.3, 3.2, and 3.1. I must be doing something wrong. Sprint TP2 in case it matters...

Yeah, I'm using everything from the GBX0C bundle, plus got all the .csv files too. I'm on RHOD400. .27 works perfectly but all the other kernels just get stuck before the boot up screen

Yes, plan too. Just have not had the time since it came out. Good to know about the GPS stuff. I do also have the various Google nav apps, and it does not happen on any of those, so it may well be CoPilot related. See if the new build fixes it.

I have had a suspicion for some time now that SOMETIMES the phone does not ring when I get a caller. Today I was able to confirm this, with missed calls when I was standing next to it. It is not always, but intermittent. I'll keep an eye and try a log if I am in a position to. Wonder if anyone else has had this issue?

I've been running this build now for about half a day.
Wifi: No problems
Calling: On Froyo I sometimes had the problem I couldn't hear the other person. So far this hasn't occured on GBX0C.
Camera: I can confirm the rhod100 camera patch isn't included in the bundled .27 kernel
Sleep&Wake: No problems spotted, device always wakes fast
Overall smoothness: Sometimes it runs faster than Froyo, but most of the times it's just as laggy as froyo was...

Perhaps things like speed are fixed in newer kernels?
Phone: Rhodium 100
Greetings from Belgium!

You should try 3.3 and see if camera at least is working for you. Some time ago I added some version of brinka's camera patch, never got any feedback if it made a difference for RHOD1xx folks.

I also had this problem with a rhod 300. It would stop with a kernel exit in the text. I reinstalled everything including a new data.img and let it all settle in. I set up an account in gmail, WiFi and a couple minor things like screen brightness. Then I rebooted to the same setup and let it settle in again. After another reboot, I changed the kernel to 3.3.3 and it booted and worked fine. It might need the reboots to establish a solid file system in .27 first.
