For me the media scanner (and android.process.media) takes a hell of a lot of time, and a hell great amount of battery life 5-10% in minutes.

After removing all my pics, videos, and mp3 the process is faster, but the media scanning behaviour is different (and worst IMO). Now you get an icon "checking for SD error" or something for a couple of seconds, and that's all. And media scanner runs in the background with no progress bar. Some times several minutes after rebooting I get a "flash"/pop-up notification (not on the notification bar, but a text message on the middle bottom of the screen) that "Media scanning is complete". On GB there was a progress bar on the notification bar, so you could see it. Sometimes on GB the progress bar hanged and didn't finished (and the phone started heating up), so I could be aware, reboot the phone, and the new media scan went fast and with no problems. Now with the media scann running in the background I can't be able to "see" actually when the process hanged.

previouslly cleared storage media data, cleared cache and dalvnik.

So true... it's incredible how the can make changes to make things worst... why did they took the contact tab from the dialer, it was so handy.

Other problem I'm having is that "Wifi connecting" takes very long to even get turned on (before even connecting to anything)... it stays greyed out "conecting... for a couple of minutes"

I'm thinking on going back to GB, but I'll give it some days and see if new Firmwares makes it better

What does it say for CSC?

And with the code "*#272*" + your phone's IMEI + "#" you can check, if you have a multi CSC running, and if yes, what CSC is active.

Maybe DBT CSC is active and that's why KIES does not recognize your phone.

I checked with the 272 code. Only CPW was there. I selected it and when I pressed install it said "must be THREE chars". What's this?

In 1234 code, CSC is unknown.

Results for SpeedMod / Phenomenal / N.E.A.K. / Siyah / RedPill / Fecality / stock kernels

Everything is specific to my phone, my "normal" usage and my home location. Most values are exact results, but some are rounded. I usually have wifi, synch (three email accounts, calendar and news), Google Talk and Skype on.
For all custom kernels, I was running on Frankenstein XWLA4 ROM (Modem: XXKL1).
For stock kernels, I was running on the corresponding stock ROM.
Always using the Samsung's standard / stock 1650mAh battery.
For Siyah, as it has many, many configurable settings, I have changed nothing - just default settings.
For N.E.A.K. I tested VR schedule, Lulzactive governor, only enabled sched_mc (and AFTR idle mode) and the rest unchanged defaults.
For RedPill kernel, I tested completely default settings (deadline / ondemand) without any change.
For RedPill (sio/conservative) kernel, I tested completely default settings, only changed io sched to sio and governor to conservative.

I have just flashed and tested ICS XXLPQ and added its results.


Here are my current results:

(*) In order to get a value, which allows to compare test results with different screen on times for mixed usage battery tests, I tried to „normalized“ the battery loss per hour with the following formula:
loss*(1-screen): battery loss in % (per hours) * (100% - screen on time in %)
So, it would be the battery loss in % (per hour) for the screen off time.
That is how a kernel with the same battery loss per hour will get a better/lower value, if it has more screen on time. (And the other way round.)

ICS XXLPQ stock kernel is smooth on my phone, but battery savings are a little bit worse than battery life on latest GB stock kernels (such as XWLA4).
As the whole ROM is new, I think that I will test battery life on a second battery cycle.
Will post my updates, if there are significant changes.

EDIT:
Updated Antutu benchmark and Night use battery stats results for XXLPQ.
Will update the Mixed usage battery stats as soon as my tests are finished.

If the list is empty or consists of only one element, then it is not a multi CSC.
The code to change the active CSC does only work for multi CSC files.

If you have the correct CSC file and the phone (and KIES) does not recognize it correctly, you may flash the CSC file again.

Good luck !

Question...anybody noticed that the car dock feature is gone (on LPQ)????

I had Google Car Dock installed, but it wasn't working any more, so I removed it (uninstall)
Now there is actually nothing appearing when I dock into the car, just the identifier in the notification bar (the steering wheel) but nothing happens.

On GB it started the voice App by default, but this is gone completely (the voice app - forgot the name of it as I never used it - remember: VLINGO)

?????

Are they saved on internal or external sd card?
I lost three apps on ICS (after flashing CF-Root kernel), which were saved on external sd card.
After flashing the stock kernel, I could access the apps again and moved them back to the internal sd card.

Re-done everything: I restored XWKJ3. Then checked if all the links are there and yes, they were. I moved all apps to internal memory from SD. Then flashed LPQ and let install go through it's paces. First thing I did was check the store if my links are there and it was. A lot of them had to be updated so I clicked on the update link. And almost immediately all the links were gone. Back to square one ...

With the installation of LPQ I lost some apps too. But I am busy getting them restored now.

Is it possible to contact someone at the store to assist? I'm at my wit's end...

I had the same problem, so I logged into my market account via my laptop, all my apps were there. I changed my device nickname & saved it. Then I cleared the data from my market app on my phone, rebooted, then went into the market app, accepted the disclaimer & all my apps re appeared. Don't know if this will work for you, but the market stores all your apps even if they don't show up on your phone.

Like i sad, here i have no problem, wifi take a litle more time to connect in compare to XWLA4 i have... But its aceptable (10seconds maximum)
Gallery e muiltimedia serarching its fast and i have about 1600 photos and also music albuns... Its minimun WIRD the problems you have...

The ICS face unlock is bullshit.

Face unlock was active on my SGS2. My friend took a picture of me with his cell phone and kept the picture (on his phone) above my front camera. device unlocked!

Contacts tab is now a menu option.

Currently checking to see why cpuspy is showing deep sleep as unused after a couple of hours. Must be a process running.

Edit: wipe cache and battery stats, reboot fixed deep sleep issue. I'm guessing it's to do with fuel gauge.

Use TB to detach from Market (out simply uninstall) the AccuWeather crap from Samsung and the Gallery. That did it for me on at least three different situations.
