Mobile Data
Greetings,

Loving the Slim Cat ROM. This is the best my little Tab 7.7 has ever performed.

I understand that the "Known issues #3" indicated that mobile data is not working. However, I wonder if any Verizon users have figured out a way to get this working.

Any advice is welcome.

Doug M.

Make Verizon work - Oh yes
1. Wipe everything in recovery.
2. Install latest Omni 4.4.4 and slimgapps.
3. Boot and get a verizon connection.
4. reboot to recovery and install the new slim with no wipeing.
5. reboot
you will get a clock error ( once no biggy ) at boot up try 4g mine is working fine.
If you do a data wipe from this point you should lose the connectivity ability so dont do a wipe. OMNI WORKS BETTER!!!!!!!!!!!
Will see if I can get a slim to load by itself fresh and still connect - that way no omni needed - will post if succeed

Which better is a subjective question.
You better make a backup in recovery and try it yourself.

Residuals grows in dalvik and cache.
If your device become lagging, it's time for you to wipe the caches.
After that a clean dalvik cache will be rebuilded in next boot.
Fstrim (the app LagFix) can also help to reorganize the sdcard.

Good luck.

I'm not sure if this is the appropriate place to ask this, but here goes...
I just installed SlimKat on my 7.7. Very nice ROM! However, I use my tablet in the Samsung Keyboard Dock (ECR-K18AWEBXAR) quite a bit. The problem is that SlimKat doesn't recognize the keyboard for several things. Such as: I have a PIN setup on my lock screen. The numbers on the keyboard don't work for that, I have to tap them on the screen. That's not a big deal. More of a big deal is the back button on the keyboard doesn't work at all. Some of the other special function keys don't work either, such as the toggle-on-screen-keyboard button and the microphone/speech-recognition button.

I went in to the Language & Input settings and I see that the only keyboard present is the Android Keyboard (AOSP). If memory serves, in the stock ROM there are two Samsung keyboards. Does anyone know how I can install those Samsung keyboards into SlimKat?

Cm and other custom roms disabled the hardware keyboard. To test if this cause that, you may try my cm-12 first. I have an alternative method inside.

Music stops playing randomly on all 4.4.4 roms
Hear it's due to broken ime switcher.
Anyone got a work around?
Only way I got around this by resetting the sd card
