Dude the one that needs to chill out is you.. no one trying to be a "internet bad ass" I'm just saying that instead just blaming the developer for errors people should just look around for solutions and not flame the thread... I'm sorry but I disagree with you on " Every phone has a different environment and variables." If that was to be the case about half of the people flashing a custom rom would brick.. don't get butt hurt and start crying now... its all good bro we are a community and were all here to help each other...

I flashed it EXACTLY as I flash any other rom.

reboot to recovery. select install from sd card select the rom click go.

uprading from 2.8 to 3.0 nothing else special needs to be done.

once that is done I run the bare rom converter (modded to leave golauncher)

done. exactly as per instructions. VERY unstable. the VERY FIRST time a calukin rom was unstable for me. previous to 3.0 his roms have been 100% ROCK SOLID awesome.

OK figured maybe something did not go right or maybe something I installed is incompatible with some change in 3.0

SO I reboot into recovery again this time I go all in I run the format all.

then run the install and do NOT run bare rom converter just format all and 3.0

same instability.

I run the same process again this time install NO third party apps save whats included with the rom.

Still unstable.

I reboot into recovery. format all install 2.8

Rock Solid Stable. zero issues at all.

to me this means "something" was hinky with 3.0 for some reason. not saying its calukin that screwed up (afterall this is a rom HE RUNS on his own phone so clearly it works for him)

but what more can I do after multiple format alls using his own utilities? not sure.

no big deal for me. I go back to 2.8 (no special reason its just the last one I had installed) and will wait for the next revision and see if that takes care of the glitches.

3.0 was the FIRST time I had GPS issues. at first gps was solid no issues instant lock. after about 12 hours it just got worse and worse till the next day when it REFUSE flat out to get a lock. it would see a "single" sat and not strong enough to lock.

I thought maybe it was the new FC24 modem so I flashed back to the previous modem NO effect.

when I flashed back to 2.8 (with fc 24) instant lock zero issues. its been days still zero issues on 2.8.

again. no big deal. for "whatever" reason 3.0 does not jive with my hardware. will just wait for the next one.

BTW I highly recommend fresh installs for all roms and PLEASE if your one of those people that just blame the devs for your own mistakes then please stop being lazy and create your own ROM I'm pretty sure yours should rock.. hahahaha....

What you can try doing is doing a fresh install.. that's what I do just to ensure the rom I'm flashing works fine..

*Unroot By Odin Stock EL29
*After It Finishes Let It Boot Up Then Go To Your Stock Recovery & Wipe Data/Factory Reset & Cache
*Boot Up
*Odin Rooted EL29
*Flash Recovery
*Boot Up Your Phone & Set It Up & Lock Your GPS
*Make Sure You Have -Calks Format All - Calls 3.0.
*Boot Up To Recovery
*Go To Mounts & Storage & Format System-Data-Cache (All 3)
*Then Wipe Data-Cache-Dalvik Cache.
*Flash Calks Format All
*Flash rom..
* Boot It Up
* Leave It Alone For 5 Minutes Then Reboot
* Then Just Set It Up..

Now that's what I do and I never have issues feel free to try it I know its a long process but I've never had issues this way and trust me I've flashed all the roms in the thread.. or stuck to 2.8 your choice bro

(SORRY, THE REST OF THE QUOTE HAS BEEN EDITED FOR CONTENT AND FOR THE INHUMAN TREATMENT OF AN E4GT)

I must have wandered into the wrong thread. I could have sworn I was in the development thread where all problems small and large were respectfully answered to create a better product for the enjoyment of others.

I decided to flash again went from 2.8 to 3.0 no wipe .. works perfectly so far but I'm only at 94% battery life. I am definitely not seeing the lag that I had last time I flashed this rom. Super happy with it now. GPS locked no problem inside ad well!! Thanks Calk!

I had to move Blazer ROM's MMS.apk to /system/apps to get lower compression and better picture messages. Anyone else seeing small MMS file sizes?

I only do an occasional MMS so enlighten me to what you've observed because I've never seen any issues. Well, other than the normal picture resizing if I try to send a photo through MMS because they are pretty large files.
For instance, I sent myself a picture and it was showing 558kb outgoing and incoming.
I guess we should know if the problem is specific to certain carriers too. I know that Sprint used to shrink the crap out of MMS messages when I had a windows mobile phone.

Edit: I mean, I want to see if I can duplicate your issue to see if I can.
