Reporting Bugs:

You are allowed to report bugs only in this thread. Before reporting a bug, please make sure you are running custom kernel, etc. If you are using any of the above modifications, please flash the rom again to get rid of the modifications before reporting.


Please use the project's tracker for reporting bugs. Please file them properly following the template or they will be discarded.

  • Grab a logcat right after the problem has occurred. (Please include at least a few pages of the log, not just the last few lines, unless you know what you're doing.)
  • If it is a random reboot, grab /proc/last_kmsg. (Do not bother getting a logcat unless you can get it just before the reboot. A logcat after a reboot is useless)
  • Remember to provide as much info as possible. The more info you provide, the more likely that the bug will be solved. The following is a useful format to follow.

IF YOU ARE POSTING A QUESTION OR OFFERING FEEDBACK ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCES WITH A CERTAIN ROM, YOU NEED TO LIST THE FOLLOWING:

**THE ROM YOUR RUNNING OR TESTING
**YOUR PROBLEM AND/OR YOUR FEEDBACK
**ANY SPECIFIC ROOKIE DEV YOU ARE ADDRESSING
