Thanks, sounds amazing Do you recommend also flashing the gapps for 4.3 just after flashing this ROM while still in recovery?

Sorry if it has beed asked before, but "search" function doesn't work so I can't check the thread now

Thanks I have a number of other ideas to improve this

This is stable enough to use daily - I am on holiday just now (hence no new builds as of yet), but I charged it on Monday night, and haven't charged it since. It has 40% remaining now (Sunday afternoon). 2 hours of screen on time, wifi in use as well when screen is on

So thank you pulser_g2 for staying interested in the Note 2.

Honestly, "official" CM builds are nothing too special. Sometimes the whole CM 9001 miles of red tape, and absurd bureaucracy means there's #nicethings that you can't have... Why? To fit in with their own secret aims, which I guarantee you'd not be best pleased with. But fear not, for I have better #nicethings, which CM would sneer at.

Good to hear we still have some DEV's that are interested in our troublesome Exynos devices. As of late everyone seemed to have jumped ship. Still sad to see the number of people working on our devices is going down. I always hoped someone would have the energy and skill to try and port a newer kernel for the Exynos 4 family , especially that since 3.8 Samsung has provided a pretty mature DRM driver and Google's Android kernel changes are also upstream. Such a port might of finally solved all the graphic glitches , but with not much of a DEV presence left when it comes to devices based on these SoC's I severely doubt anyone would take on such a large task.

Anyone having a problem with games of big file sizes? Batman:Arkham City Lockdown and Asphalt 7 used to work fine before. But now, the games open and the close with the message "Unfortunately has stopped". Anybody with solutions?

@$ideWinder Since 4.3 uses OpenGL ES 3.0 those games have not yet been optimized for it so thats why it's crashing.

Alas, ladies and gents... The Cyanogenmod team have managed to surpass even themselves in misdirection and disorganisation. I honestly am surprised just how absurdly short-sighted they are. Seriously. In fact, I would like to suggest that anyone who feels strongly about this lets them know about it as loudly as they deem necessary.

There is one individual, Ricardo Cerqueira (aka arcee), who seems to have single-handedly decided to go and remove huge sets of features from CM. Particularly device specific ones, under the auspices of "tidying up the settings menu". Sure, by all means have a go, but don't REMOVE functionality in the process... If you must do it, do it a step at a time - remove the features from "Advanced" as they are created into the new menu.

By way of example, recent builds have removed the Advanced menu, offering you amongst other gems, the ability to change HSPA/HSDPA/HSUPA modes, as well as to disable the incredibly annoying button backlights on the soft keys on the note 2. Oh, and the ability to remove Samsung's garishly over-saturated colours of the AMOLED screen.

All this comes from the same individual who denied Mako (nexus 4) users many advanced options, because of his own personal dislike of the "Advanced" menu. While I cannot find any public acknowledgement of this, Nexus 4 users were denied many features and tweaks due to his maintainership of the device, and there are countless occurences where his own dislike has emerged in private, hidden discussions, that you are being kept from... Such as, for example,

Want some more proof? He was told about all these features on our devices.

Quote:

+Ricardo Cerqueira You should have a look at galaxys2-common/smdk4412-common DeviceParts. We have HSDPA settings, vibrator, mDNIE Mode/Scenario, touch sensitivity, audio dock, sensor calibration, and a few others.

And here's his reply:

This was met with another reply from another sensible developer, pointing out the need for these features.

Quote:

I can vouch for touch sensitivity on Acer A700 though.
1) Stock comes with it - being feature-complete
2) The stock sensitivity setting sucks in some cases, I've added an kind-of-overclock "Very high" setting which helps, but we obviously don't want to ship with that as default.
Galaxy S also has HSDPA setting which is known (or at least believed by users) to have substantial affect battery life. mDNIe because some users prefer screen post-processing on (stock Galaxy S) and some prefer them off (stock Nexus S).

Ask yourself - why were users not made aware of this discussion? Why were these changes decided by one man on his own personal crusade? Why was there no consultation carried out before his own personal dislike was imposed upon us all?

Alas though, these discussions take place in secret, behind closed doors, which you and I do not see, because we are not felt "worthy" to see what happens there. Have no fear though, for I shall expose each and every one of these things, including the upcoming commercialisation of CM.

Yes, that's right... You heard me right - CM are attempting to now licence all new contributions as dual GPL and commercial licence. Why? To allow them to go on and sell the rights to the open source code to third parties. And one of their own "leads" even tried to strong-arm a valued contributor into re-licencing his work. I had to step in there, and point out they actually had no right to do so, as the contributor agreement doesn't cover that eventuality. Nonetheless, his attitude was frankly horrendous, TELLING the contributor it would be relicensed, not asking permission. That's gone quiet for now though. The reason they want to be able to licence the code commercially? To allow them to sell YOUR contributions to a third party, such as an OEM or carrier, who wants the features, but doesn't want to follow the open source licence of a GPL component.

They're also selling out and going commercial - there's rumours around the internet, but a little bit of smart thinking will lead you to the answers.

Unfortunately, due to CM now trying to be as secretive as possible, you probably won't see any of this elsewhere. They are making every effort to be as closed as possible in their structure, and decision making processes. That means you, the user, are running code where the changes are arbitrarily decided with no input by yourself, beyond the "false" pretence of their gerrit instance.

There are significant contributions made to CM which bypass their gerrit code review (mainly upstream merges), but also other large pushes. There is also the "submit and +2" mentality from their leads, where their own contributions are beyond testing, and should be pushed immediately, often leading to breakages.

There is a lot more going on, and I will expose more and more of it. Please encourage your beloved CM people to have a look at this. Also, let them know that their "secrets" are not safe, since they are ridiculously easy to find on the internet. So if they try to stop me finding things out, I will simply share more and more with the world. Fair is fair, right? The less open CM are, the more open I will be. When you're running code on your device, you expect the developers to be open, upfront, and honest with you, right? Is that happening?

What does this all mean? Well, there won't be any new "upstream" builds for a while, until I resolve a few issues such as the major removal of important features, thus crippling CM from being usable. I need to figure out what to do, whether it's re-adding them, or rewriting the settings to work properly. It will be worth it in the long run though! Trust me on that I might introduce some more #nicethings

Finally, if any of the CM leads wish to engage in a dialogue about this, feel free. You can do so, in public, here because the public trust you in running your code, so why not trust them in return? Or is this a trustless relationship? Perhaps your users should stop trusting you?

Yes, but as of now the Note II doesn't support OpenGL ES 3.0 it's still running OpenGL ES 2.0 .

That is way more important than the whole closed-sourced Samsung problems or any specific Android phone models' problems. I remember the days Samsung was rumored to "listen" and "track" people in their ROMs, and people loving open source RILs and many more different good details about how better it was to use CM. Many many people trust CM team as they are fully open sourced, fully share-oriented and also -including me- many people buy their phone by trusting CM team, not the manufacturer itself for a fully working and up-to-date phone. They say, "hey this phone has super hardware, it can fill every gap current Nexus has and give me what I need with -for example- bigger screen, SD card support and this thing can be my 'completed' Nexus with some super trustworty CM touch"..

I am not a super donater as a middle-budgeted student and -even if I was- personally do not think I could ever pay for what they have done so far for my many devices (and my friends' too) but knowing that there is a team that you can trust is not only a good reason to help choose a phone but also choosing Android in the first place.

I am currently on CM10.1 (since TW kinda sucks and CM10.2 still has some bugs and such - the persistent icons in status bar are killing me) and I have noticed something. With no matter what kernel I try... games lag, a lot. They some times get to the point where this phone feels as sluggish as the Note 1 :/

It is something kernel related, I take. Do you (pulser) know what it might be and if you can do something about it in 10.2? Unless it has already been addressed...
