OK, movin' on. I keep dropping calls, signal strength is way low, data keeps dropping out, and other stuff keeps going wrong that just builds. I need reliability. Just too hard to do, as much as I like Android. I'm going back to WM and see how that goes for awhile until I hear about another build that's more stable. Too bad cuz, when it works, I love this build! Thats why I stayed with it for so many months in spite of the problems. Good luck ya'll! I know it's just bad phone karma.

camera issues

Just installed, seems okay so far. Slight issue I have found: My camera is blurry when taking pictures. I've cleaned the lense, made sure no plastic film is on it etc. the camera worked great in the previous build I was using, MCCM IR 1.7.1


Anyone else having this issue or can offer a suggestion/fix?

I installed a 3rd party camera app, camera360, enabled the anti-shake feature. after the app focused to a crisp photo like I'm used to I quit the app, went back to default camera app and my blur issue is gone. Not sure if it will last after a reboot, but I'll keep you all posted.

So far after several reboots, It's safe to say the fix worked.
Anyone having issues with receiver of MMS not getting the picture? Says it sent correctly. But nothing is ever received to other person on this build.

Nand

Any one over here swapped from this version to a Nand version?
If yes which?

I wish there was a Carbon in Nand, so I'm looking for something similar, recommendations please.

    In version 0.6 I am using hastarin's 8.6 kernel. Kernels and builds react different to everyone depending on your setup, so if something doesn't work for you please let me know and I will fix it ASAP.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    What's working
    -All things that are working in other builds should be, unless stated below

    What's not working
    -Everything should be now

    FIXES & OTHER THINGS
    (1) If you get 1 com.phone.android force close don't be worried, you should only see it once. After you do the reboot after first boot you shouldn't see it again.
    (2) If you are on T-MOUS and are having MMS issues, see this for a possible fix http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=8981441&postcount=250
    (3) If games such as "Angry Birds" will not install, please unmount your SD card then install then mount back after it has installed.
    (4) To use either the themed keyboard or the Gingerbread keyboard just long press in the message field and select the keyboard you want.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    First boot setup

    After you boot for the first time please wait about a minute and unlock the phone then reboot immediately or everything will not work correctly!!! Once it boots back up then set everything up normally.

    I also always recommend using a new data.img when upgrading to a newer build, that way no weird problems come down the road. When people report bugs i can't always tell if this is the cause or not. So please, if reporting a bug, please tell me if you used an old data.img.

    No not talking about when making a phone call, it happens in the call history, When you hit phone on the main screen, if a call is coming in, I know that when you type they are all together, I could care less about that.

    And I just changed the kernel about an hour ago, since I was having a huge drain on the battery I changed it in hopes it would fix this too, but didnt. :(

    Like I said earlier, it will probably be your Windows ROM. Its definitely not this Android ROM. I hope I'm not coming off "over confident" but I do a lot of battery testing before releasing and I always make sure it sits around 3-8mA before putting it up. Your radio is new so the only thing left to change is your Windows ROM. You have nothing to loose by trying right? Let me know how it goes.

    P.S. If you need anything just send me a PM.

    nice build, smooth, and almost everything worked....but the battery for me is at 88mA on standby, where other builds, gave me 3mA to 5mA, using energy RoM and the radio with -2 on my siggy...

    I have said multiple times in all of my threads that you are going to get bad battery drain on an old radio like yours. Almost all people that complain about bad battery drain have an old radio. I do all my testing on a new radio, use either 2.14 or 2.15. (Not trying to be mean, I just say this at least a few times a day, I'm going to put it in the OP).
