I have a problem on Beta 1. After rebooting, the stock camera app needs a lot of time to be ready for taking pictures. And if I try to close it by clicking home button, it says that the camera failed, and also couldn't connect to the camera. Anyone facing this problem?

Did you destroy the .thumbnails folder?

Are you kidding, or are you meaning this serious? If this is serious then take out your battery immediately out of your phone and buy a new one. It´s not related to the OS. Your battery is crapping out and may explode any time. A exploding Li-ion battery is nearly like a little phosphor bomb.

Yes, im serious..thanks for the advice..i just thought its related to the OS since i was charging a lot due to reboots even if may battery stats is at 80% usually when it reboots my battery stats went from 80% to 1% when it opens, and i have to charge it again and again..

Anybody has this problem?
After some time, my clock widget freezes and the time doesn't update anymore. The time in my statusbar is still ok. I'm running holo launcher. When I check my apps running, the clock widget service is still active. When I reboot the launcher it is ok for a few minutes, then freezing again. A reboot will make the problem go away for some hours.
I'm not running any task killer or ram management.
I have CM9, beta1, with forfivo kernel v1, smartassv2 governer.
Besides that, my phone is running very smooth with excellent battery life; just that freezing clock :(

Hi all,
after more than a week of CM9 alpha8 testing, I found out that several times when I call someone the call drops immediately (before I can even hear the phone ringing).
Clicking on the call icon again apparently solves the problem.

Did anyone have the same issue?

Tx.


I have had this same exact problem but in reverse, lol

When someone calls me, i actually have to wait about a second or two to move the phone close to my face when i answer it, cause if i answer the call and then put it on my face right away it drops the call.

However i am not entirely sure if it is actually my cheek pressing the huge End Call button before the proximity sensor even has a chance to turn off the screen.



With alpha8 and baseband xxkl3: when switching back to 3g from 2g only sometimes it takes long, sometimes it won't switch back, sometimes i completely lose mobile data connection and have to reboot.
Losing mobile data is the worst case as it starts heavy battery drain issue too.

Same here, im using baseband XXLM8
Sometimes the 3G icon freezes with an Arrow pointing upwards. And then mobile data goes down.
Also it takes a long time to turn off mobile data when i click the button.

I also noticed that if that happens the phone often loses signal altogether and even if it does NOT lose signal it gets impossible to send SMS or make calls. SOMETIMES it works again if you turn airplane mode on and back off again, sometimes it takes a reboot, sometimes even after reboot it remains with no signal.


Im using beta 1, this happens since alpha 8 for me.

Thread is back up to Date

Hi there,

finally the thread is now back up to date. :D
Took a lot of catching up, but finally it's done.

Just an advice for your future bug reports: it would make things a bit easier if you could write a short topic of the bug(e.g. Google Account: Syncing problem), followed by the description.
It is a bit difficult if you start with: "Thank you Arco ... your so great ..." (I agree on that :) ) and then somewhere in between you hide the bug report ;)

When someone calls me, i actually have to wait about a second or two to move the phone close to my face when i answer it, cause if i answer the call and then put it on my face right away it drops the call.

However i am not entirely sure if it is actually my cheek pressing the huge End Call button before the proximity sensor even has a chance to turn off the screen.

It would be good if you could isolate the problem, whether it is caused by the delayed proximity sensor and your cheek or more software based.

greets

THE-E

I can't seem to download apps through Google play store. I've had this since last night. Tried clean install but still problem is there. Anyone?

It always says insufficient storage even though I have over 100 MB of space for apps

JB Adrenos

I'd like to know if this JB adreno mod

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1828902

is the same as Arco's update in Alpha 8, which made everything smoother. Also, I'd like opinions from people who've tried Geeky Engine if it improves on Beta 1, is it noticeable? What about Forivo's kernel? How much improvement does it bring? Is the V1 synced with all Arco's changes in Beta 1?

Just a quick question :

Now that Arco's CM9 has reached Beta status, can anyone say with conviction that this is stable enough for daily use?

Or, in other words : will there be something that GB perform better?

(Note : I'm aware that FM Radio is not working without SpiritFM; I can certainly live without FM Radio)

Since Alpha 8, I've been using this phone for daily use. Other than the laggy camera on Alpha 8, it has worked flawlessly. Calling, texting, browsing the net, fb, g+, playing music, watching videos had been faster and smoother than on GB. Even my battery lasts longer now than when I was on GB. :)

So no complaints from me. Absolutely amazing job by Arco.

Cool! I'm going to prepare everything then... total wipe of Internal/External SD, data, system, and so forth...

ICS, here I come!

    APN and pin lock issue is fixed for next build, both CM9 and CM10.

    However, it works for me on RC2 (although the AP is very old — ASUS WL-500g Deluxe, Broadcom chipset, 802.11g, using WPA2-PSK). But I set it up on alpha4 and did not perform any wipes since then.

    Strange, cause nothing has been changed regarding wifi between RC2 and RC3.

    cm9 RC3 can't record video using front camera..am i the only one?

    Confirmed. Was caused by frame rate fix for back camera. I fixed it for front camera now, and compiled a new camera.msm7x30.so
    Push it to system/lib/hw and reboot.

    Preview and recording should be a lot smoother now.

    FAQ:

    How can I update this ROM?
    Unless exceptions aren't mentioned, you simply have to flash the latest ZIP-file of the ROM using CWM. You files should stay untouched, but still it is always recommended to make a backup.

    Does it support my language?
    CyanogenMod (9) is multilingual, so it supports all common language in the world.

    How can I update my basebandversion?
    a) You can flash the Baseband from here.
    or
    b) Make a Nandroid backup of your current CM9 -> wipe everything -> Flash the latest stock ROM from your region via ODIN ->
    flash ClockWorkMod -> wipe everything -> flash CM9 -> restore data.

    What is CWM ?
    CWM stands for ClockWorkMod. It is a custom Recovery which enables complete backups (Nandroid backup) and complete restores.
    (HowTo install)

    What are GApps?
    GApps stands for GoogleApps. Google Apps = Google Play Store, Google Calender ...
    Due to copyright, CyanogenMod is not allowed to implement GoogleApps directly in their ROMs, that is why you have to install it manually.

    How do I install or update Google Mail?
    Due to copyright, CyanogenMod is not allowed to implement Google Mail directly in their ROMs, that is why you have to install/update it manually:
    Follow this link on your device and open it with the Google Play Store: click here

    Where do I find the external SD on CM9 ?
    The directory has changed (The following are the directories before swapping):
    external(physical) SD card: /external_sd/ or /mnt/external_sd/
    internal SD card: /sdcard/ or /mnt/sdcard/

    How do I swap the internal and external SD on CM9 ?
    Settings -> Storage->Menu-Button->Storage configuration (a restart might be necessary)

    How do I activate MTP on CM9 ?
    Settings ->Storage->Menu-Button->USB connection->mark MTP

    How do I enable brightness control for the notification bar?
    Settings -> System ->Status bar ->Activate brightness control
    Now you can use the notification bar to control the brightness.(wipe on it left and right)
    Source

    My phone restarts randomly after update?
    Note: All your Data will stay untouched (Backup/Restore)
    1.Open ClockWorkMod->backup and restore->backup to externl sdcard
    2.wipe data/factory reset
    3.wipe cache partition(not sure if needed)
    4.install zip from sdcard->choose the latest CM9 version
    5.advanced restore from external sdcard->choose backup->Restore data
    6.reboot

    The battery of my device drains rapidly fast, what can I do?
    After flashing a new ROM you will have to do several(5+) charging cycle in order to get a calibrated battery.
    There are also battery calibration apps, such as Battery Calibration which help you with the battery calibration. Long story short: Be patient.

    My Data connections / Adding APNs doesn't work, what can I do?
    It is a known bug in (Alpha 1). Flash this zip to solve this bug.

    What is a funny SIM card ?
    A funny SIM card, is a SIM card which provides GSM connection, but does not let you enable data connection, because APNs can't be added.(only on CyanogenMod)Flash this zip to solve this bug.
