I am on 2.3.3 (Mosaic III, a jvh build) using X-cal's 1.2 no voodoo reorient jvh kernel. Previously, I used Phoenix and mostly speedmod kernels. Since upgrading to Froyo, I cannot play 95% of my music.
Currently, the included Mosaic music players (both stock 1.1.1 and miui v. 1) only play about 5% of my non-drm mp3s which are stored on my external sd card. (The error says "sorry, the player does not support this audio file" or something like that; but they are all mp3s with Id3v2.2 tags. I painstakingly checked. 95% are rendered unknown artist and are unplayable by the music players.) I have deleted and reloaded the music to no avail. Again, I had the same problem under Froyo (Phoenix Roms) but no problems under Eclair. I don't think this is a Rom based issue but I'm not prepared to rule it out.
I have tried at least four other music apps and they all have the same problem.
I will try to remove both included music apps (which are regarded as system apps) and reinstall.
Question: is there an explanation as to what is causing this? Whether or not there is an explanation, has anyone found a resolution?
This has been a frustrating several months and I thought, foolishly, that Gingerbread would solve the issue.
Any relevant insight on this (ruled out culprits, etc.)?
