@Jacobw53 i am facing 2 problems, apps is taking a lot of space so i am not able to install any new apps. The other main thing is sound (ringtone and media) stops working, after restart it works fine but again it stops working.
I did a clean install, any pointers?
When will the next build be released

hi,
there is a lot of space in internal memory. you can install TitaniumBackup and move some apps to internal memory (requires root). This will make this apps look like system apps. But you will get a lot for free space.
For proper work, you should enable "automatically integrate updates" in TB options: this will move system apps' updates to system memory instead of placing it in common memory.

What recovery are you running? And I'm still working with it. It will be a while as I'm working toward Android 5.0 for this device as well. No promises there though. I'll keep you updated.

Hey guys, what's the best way to upgrade from 4.0.4? Say if I want to keep my data and apps. Is there a good 'stock' installation to install? I'm relatively new to modding my phone so any help would be appreciated.

No stock past 4.0.4. If you want KitKat, there is a CyanogenMod 11 build for our phone. Obviously you'd have to root and install CWM recovery in order to be able to flash it. I don't think any of the steps is supposed to wipe your internal storage, however that's the worst assumption to work under, you'd definitely want to make at least one back up before trying it

Yeah, I already have CWM installed as well as root. Just not sure where to go from there. Is there a good way to back things up before trying it? I've looked at the wiki and found a few respositories, but no idea what to do with them.

Use titanium backup to back up and restore the data and settings for your installed apps. Make sure your titanium backup folder is copied to somewhere other than your internal storage. I use G Cloud to backup and restore my call logs and text messages. Any media, pictures, documents, videos, etc that you have saved to internal storage, just make sure you have copies saved elsewhere. Here is the thread for Cyanogenmod 11. Do a nandroid backup in CWM and make sure you have it saved somewhere other than internal storage.

I have used the Pantech Burst for a while and here are my tips to stretch the battery:

1. Use an app called "Airplane Mode Control". It is free and has no questionable permissions. I set the app to enter Airplane Mode at night and restore in the morning. I saved significant battery. My only complain is it does not start automatically after reboot.

2. When I go to places with poor 4G / LTE coverage, I use Secret Code Revealer to change RAT mode to GSM.

3. I use No-Frills CPU control (requires root) to limit the CPU speed to ~800Mhz. I am still experimenting with this one.

Look, I used to have the bust and loved it while I was using it. But if you need to use a strategy to stretch battery on that device, perhaps you're playing with it a bit too much.

Nothing wrong with trying to make the most out of the battery.

I used to be able to go 3 days without a charge. Now that LTE coverage is much better, I can go 2 days on LTE all day. And I have Exchange syncing my Calendar in the background as well as usual google services like Map, Hangout, etc.

The CPU control does not seem to help much. The real battery drainer is likely something in the phone's drivers. Phone can get hot in my pocket for no reasons and from time to time, wakelocks will kill the battery at a rate that is 10+% per hour on idle and there is no way to stop it until I reboot the phone.

For some reasons, album arts of my MP3s are always squares on this phone. On the Burst, it is always stretched to square. This applies to the stock Music Player as well as Google's Play Music, which I know works fine with my other Android phones.

I am already on CM11. But the gapps seems different.

Is there any way to preserve my data.

Secondly in the installation procedure, it is written:

Installation:
Step 1. Copy .zip to sdcard or internal storage
Step 2. Boot into recovery
Step 3. Flash .zip
Step 4. Wipe dalvik & cache
Step 5. Reboot system and bask in all your glory!

Shoul'nd step 4 come before step 3 as we have to wipe dalvic & cache and then we should flash the gapps zip file ?

Thanks, but if i wipe the user data, it will remove everything on my mobile so how to preserve my data.

Secondly where is the root file and which TWRP recovery should i use to do all this and how to add the addons of gapps given, should i flash them too with Cm11 and gapps and Is 2.8.5.0 is the latest recovery for Burst?

Use titanium backup , open titanium, hit menu, go to preferences, backup location. Change to external SD. Then backup your ApPS and data. Flash whatever you want. Then download titanium again (or, just have the apk in your ext SD card already) go back to settings. Chose backup location. Detect (whole device).
Bam.
Profitsss

    Root is done, attn1 is working on recovery now, and IOMonster and I are trying to get a better root done while waiting on recovery.

    As of right now, we have a leaked update that we are hi-jacking to get root, however we hope to get it down to just flashing recovery without the need for update later today.

    Stay tuned.

    I'm porting over the newest Ubuntu Touch to you guys.

    Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I727 using xda app-developers app

    and here is root, you need fastboot and adb

    http://www.androidpolice.com/2012/04/09/pantech-burst-rooted-and-the-process-is-stupid-easy/

    IOMonster saved the day here, without him you would have to wipe your phone and install modified leaked firmware to get root.

    Very glad we decided to not release the initial root, sorry

    If IOMonster wants to explain he can, I would prefer not to however.

    Details

    http://goo.im/devs/jcase/prestoroot.img

    adb reboot bootloader
    fastboot boot prestoroot.img

    once phone boots, reboot it again, install superuser from the market

    I've started hosting relevant files for the Burst on part of my site. Download speeds are pretty high so if you can't access the 4shared or dropbox or whatever mirrors, check here.

    If anyone has any particular files they want hosted and aren't already there, PM me.
