yea this thing doesn't seem to have a perfect network-location setting. same with beautiful widgets in this rom - it doens't find it's location very well, if at all, unless you wait for gps to triangulate outdoors. don't have this problem in ohter roms.
Every issue with this rom seems to be identical to the problems in JieeHD's OMGB and OMFGB roms back a few months ago.
same location problems, I think (but I might be remembering wrong).
same thing where sometimes the screen doesn't display properly in launcherpro after an unlock the first time (desktop doesn't show but notification bar shows ok...) until you drag down notification bar and then let it back up again.
same poorly rendered UI elements such as the rough looking pixelated round radio button boxes. I'm pretty sure that Jiee imprved much of thsi stuff in his OMFGB rom and I was actually involved with him in the development of a final release of that rom that was going to be outstanding - but unfortunately the OMFGB dev team wouldn't authorize us to let me modify and rebuild their god app as I was being asked to do by JieeHD.
So, unfortunately, this rom seems to still share some of the great performance and frustrating flaws that JieeHD's original OMGB rom had.
I was hoping the OMGB rom this is built from would have improved since then! oh well.
I do like the rom and I like your build work and clear instructions for rebuilding it and contributing. I think JieeHD published instructions for building roms also but it may have been for a different type of situation - like maybe porting cdma to gsm or something (I don't recall for sure now!). I remember proof reading it for him LoL, but I don't remember what it was about ;)
aosp is great, but gb aosp with it's stupid screen on animations seems like it would really benefit from extra cm-style controls.
AND that is why OMFGB came into existence - to improve upon OMGB by adding the missing features and controls everyone wanted.
good luck - I hope it keeps improving for the dev and for users.
I'm going back to decked 1.3e
Thank you for some constructive criticism! I do agree that this ROM have some flaws, but the reason I released this and will continue to develop it is because it's so fast!
Of course, there are plenty of fast ROMs. Decked for example. I agree with you that Decked is a great ROM, but since they don't seem to release any sources I believe that we have to create our own open source ROM for our hero so that the hero will continue to have a really good vanilla ROM even after the HeroC developers decides to quit.
The reason I released this ROM is because it's such a great base to work on. With the added build instructions, I'm hoping to see more developers join so that we can make a flawless and lightning fast GB ROM for the Hero.
oh yes, totally agree. I was just trying to be complete in my observations and am a little disappointed that the original source that you built this from hasn't really improved in the past months - not your fault at all of course.
like I said - keep it up, and I hope it improves with time!
