FAQs (Under Construcion):

Index
1. GPS is not working
2. Htc clock widgets are not avaible
3. Bluetooth Audio during call not working
4. Is overclock dangerous for my phone?
5. How do i set cpu clock with Lightspeed Kernel?
6. My hero is not working/unstable with High Overclock kernel (710mhz)
7. How do i switch to 2G only network? (Thanks to Bo$s for the solution)
8. My phone doesn't wake up after turning screen off when using Lightspeed kernel (Solution reported by Detol Loki)
9. Something like a colored haze appeared on my screen with lightspeed kernel (Solution reported by Detol Loki)

1. GPS is not working
Easy solution, turn on GPS then flash radio

2. Htc clock widgets are not avaible
This is caused by flipclock; flipclock works only if flashed after you ran rom at least 1 time
Solution is:
- Flash Kimera (No need to wipe)
- Reboot and run rom
- Flash flipclock

3. Bluetooth Audio during call not working
Simply flash Bluetooth Fix

4. Is overclock dangerous for my phone?
No. Overclock is not dangerous, cpu voltage is not modified so cpu won't heat up, you can use it daily without any worry.

5. How do i set cpu clock?
Run setcpu and choose to read frequencies from txt file (You can use overclock widget but don't go over 768 mhz)
Then try different clocks (consider that hero's native maximum clock is 528mhz) to find stability and good speed, every hero has a different maximum clock supported, you have only to try

6. My hero is not working/unstable with High Overclock kernel (710mhz)
Flash Less Overclock kernel or Lightspeed kernel where you can find your ideal clock

7. How do i switch to 2G only network? (Thanks to Bo$s for the solution)
In the dialer type
*#*#4636#*#*
then go to Phone information and change WCDMA preferred to GSM only

8. My phone doesn't wake up after turning screen off when using Lightspeed kernel (Solution reported by Detol Loki)
If this occurs you set too low minimum frequency on screen off, so increase min value, don't go under 230mhz

9. Something like a colored haze appeared on my screen with lightspeed kernel (Solution reported by Detol Loki)
If this occurs you set too low minimum frequency, so increase min value, don't go under 230mhz
