could it be to do with the texturing? Snapchat has a lot of different effects and features in the app.

attached is a screenshot of whats going on.

This issue was mentioned early on but I didn't find a solution for it. I'm using the latest build 04-07 and I've tried disabling HWA for Snapchat and Camera but both results in Snapchat showing a black screen. HWA was previously turned on for the two, but the double screen that @gymfreak7855 mentioned shows up instead.

Sorry, but I have to correct myself:

While 720p preview is now working again, 720p recording isn't working (pressing the red button doesn't start the recording).

This just affects 720p, while 480p recording still is working on my Defy+.

@Quarx: Could you spend a further look into this?

Something like 40000 kbytes (= 40 mb) sounds a bit to aggressive for me, normally we should set it to something like 5-10% of the total memory (according
to the redhat source i linked, there are also explanations for other vm settings).
When we prepared the kernel for kitkat we also integrated a similar feature which did exactly the same (turned out it was a bit buggy and needed to be reverted).
If some of you find the sweet spot we are willingly to integrate that, because in the end thats exactly what i made aero control for.

Just won't happen to soon from my side, since exams are incoming...

Hello, first of all, GOOD LUCK! with your exams
Secondly, I just had a quick read of the page you linked & noticed this:
However, setting this parameter to a value that is too high (5-10% of total system memory) will cause your system to become out-of-memory immediately.

1. To me, it says 5 to 10% is too much, am I reading this right?
If so as long as we stay under that it should be good?
I found 9MB(1024 X 9 = 9216) as suggested by @noideaforaname via @okij to be quite a nice improvement but 24MB 5% seems worse
4% 20MB was also good but I felt it was too aggressive for me as it seemed to be constantly trying to free RAM, may affect battery life?
2. The page you linked was for VIRTUAL MEMORY, but under min_free_kbytes it does say The minimum number of kilobytes to keep free ACROSS THE SYSTEM. This value is used to... for EACH LOW MEMORY ZONE...
Is this why this setting affects PHYSICAL RAM?
Anyway, thank you for your time & once again good luck

I never use GPS on the device. Hope that reboot problem will be solved sooner. Why the phone become unresponsive to the touch when it is connected via USB to the PC.

which build are you in? Make sure you install one of the latest from http://quarx2k.ru/roms/defy-cm11.0/
Such bugs were reported earlier and no longer exist.

Try the latest build from @Qurax download sites.. if you still facing issues i suggest you use a different rom like maybe SlimKat. I am on it from a long time and no problems faced as of now.

Just a request: Dont put any kind of requests directly to Qurax. he is trying his best and giving his best to us.

On 0401 build (coming from 4.3) BT is working perfectly again with my BT hands-free car kit and my Defy+ (hooray! )

Besides that, I had one reboot directly after installing Gapps due to telephony layer error and another one yesterday after ~75h uptime. Let's see how it continues...

720p recording is working, just made a short clip and played it on my PC, everything fine. Just 16pic/s so not reaaaaaally smooth, but working.

Best regards,

Flox

similar story for me on 04/01 - reboot or 2 shortly after install (one telephony layer, one when I launched Clean Master first time) & none since, Bluetooth works ok. Battery drains very fast when using data connection, but I think battery is fubar anyway.
