So what is the difference/purpose of the "test" ROMs? My inc2. s my everyday phone and I have been using this ROM with periodic nightly updates for some time.Don't want to screw anything up but always willing to test new features!

Edit: Preludedrew - The test download is available I am downloading the test build now so that's why I ask.

Consider these, "nightlies, with a twist". You'll want to backup everything before flashing ( remember this is bleeding edge, hence the testing ). Other than that, just follow instructions if given and you're on your merry way. As with the nightlies, there's never any explicit assurance that something won't go wrong; the rom won't boot, it bootloops, scares your kids, etc. However, with these test builds, this usually means that someone ( mostly myself as I am the maintainer for this device ) will have something specific that they've been working on, and just need 2nd, 3rd or 4th, opinion on. In this particular case, we've got the Toolbox & Updater interfaces that have changed completely, and just need to make sure it's all set before merging. I'd like to do this more often, if we can make sure we've got a good base of people to do the testing. Also in this particular case, I'd like to maybe pick some brains on what people might like to see ( the interface, not customizations ).

Thanks for the reply! Also FYI the Updates section is also populated with nightly options but did not attempt to d/l any of those. Am aware of bleeding edge ROMs have 5 rooted devices handy all with various custom installs. The Vivow by EV has been great on my inc2 - thank you for your great work!

Results vary. Try a few. Just don't set on boot until you are sure it's stable. That way if it freezes you can pull battery and start over.

Is overclocking supported again? I am on 7/13 nightly and it is not supported on that ROM. On 4/14 nightly I had it overclocked to 1.4 ghz and that was pretty sweet. Would definitely move to newer nightly if that feature has returned.

It is supported, there was a bug we found with adding the Updater to the toolbox. This has since been fixed but the code is still in review. We'll get it out asap, probably by this weekend since 4.3 dropped and we're working on that.

Just a question/comment - tried using voice input with Google Keyboard and it was either extremely lagging or did not work at all. Although not a showstopper I do sometimes use it for longer email. Is this a known issue or can it be corrected?
