im getting random shut downs, two in the last 3 days, where when its sleeping, it shuts right down. pressing the power button wont power it up either. i have to hold the power button for a good 30 seconds, then let go, then next time i press the power button it will boot as normal. anyone else?

I'm getting the same behavior. Kinda like a sleep of death (SOD)?

I'm raising up my minimum freq to 204MHz to see if it helps...

I take a look at settings.apk and didn't find default value for this parameter

I also found why my script can't modify the file in /sys

Quote:

/sys is not writable by anything but the kernel
The kernel publishes compile options and runtime values through /sys. It would be a security risk if anything else could modify /sys.
/sys is not persistant and is not really a filesystem in a traditional sense, but a read only database accessed by filesystem methods


If you don't see something you expect then look at you kernel compile options and what modules you may need to load

Different kernels support dfferent features and this is reflected in /sys.

the best way is to script it in kernel's init.rc, I'll give a try later

I had this problem before. Flash the original A510 kernel back and now the tablet is rock steady for nearly a week now.

I still have root. Just make sure you flash using NoThrill's stock kernel.

I did that last week. Unfortunately, the screen responsiveness bug immediately returned after the stock kernel flash. So I went back to NoThrill's kernel. Currently on 204MHz minimum for 2 days and no SODs so far (fingers crossed).

any noticeable change in the battery life? i though the 5th sleeping core in the terga 3 only ran at a 100mhz, wouldnt running any higher would bring one of the main cores online?

Well, thing is, I'm a heavy tablet user (I charge it 1x a day). So... I don't notice any difference yet between setting it at 100 or 200.

Current status: no SOD still.

Hi ive been using this rom ever since it was released. Im using the cwm released by nothrills aswell. Its been working great and much better than the stock rom till early this morning while im playing a game (order and chaos) the screen just froze. So i turned it off and on but i cant get passed the acer logo anymore. Tried to reset the tablet using a pin but still same problem. Sometimes it will get through up to nothrills bootscreen but it will just freeze there. Tried booting to cwm recovery but it will just show a blank screen after the acer logo. If somebody is kind enough to help me as im new when it comes to rooting and such. I just followed all the tutorials on how to install (cwm and rom) word by word and it worked great for a month. Pls help. Tnx

Would hide root really work on this ROM? I would like to run https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...Lm1vYmlhdHYiXQ.. (web tv streaming) but it does not work on rooted devices. I can not even unroot stock rom with superuser.
