Frequently Asked Questions

Code:
0. What did you change compared to the previous version?!
See the attached Changelog!

1. Will this work on the Dream (G1)?
No - I have no plans to support it.

2. I get errors while applying the update?!
ALWAYS check the md5sum to make sure the zip isn't corrupted.

3. I get "Verification failed" when applying the update.
Use a custom recovery with test-keys to apply the update.

4. Do I have to wipe?
Yes - I advise everyone to wipe to avoid issues.
If you're upgrading from a previous RAv1.6.x-ROM a wipe is not mandatory. If weird things happen, try wiping anyway before reporting issues.

5. I can't get adb/fastboot to work on my windows/mac/linux/hackingtosh?!
This question is not related to this ROM, please post your question in the general section so people can help you.

6. Battery life really sucks on this ROM.
Try scaling the CPU speed down manually.

7. Could you please release a new version with different CPU speed settings?
No - download a cpu-speed setting app and configure it yourself.

8. Application x is not working on your ROM!
Check if that application is Donut compliant.

9. Will you include more languages?
No

10. How do I change the HTC_IME language?
Check out this awesome blog : http://ostebaronen.dk/?p=190. If the keyboard doesn't change your language is probably not implemented.

11. I want the LatinIME keyboard back!
Grab it from a Donut ROM and push it to /system/app.

12. Will you include HTC exchange support?
No - I don't want to implement the HTC framework.

13. Will you release a lite-version of this ROM?
No - You can manually remove the apps you don't need from /system/app.

14. I can't install the media pack!
It's a normal zip file, just unzip it to the root of your SD-card.

15. Where can I find theme's for this ROM?
Check the theme section, MontAlbert ported some nice themes here : http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=544625

16. Does this ROM support Apps-to-sd, Compcache, Multi-touch, ...?
If it's not mentioned in the "supported features section" it's probably not supported ;)

17. I found a bug / I've a request or question, what should I do?!
Just post it in this thread, and I'll try to help you. Please don't send me a PM, I'll most probably not read it anyway.

18. Why don't you answer my question?
Because it's already answered in this FAQ.

19. When will you release a new version?
When it's ready. 1 day of delay for each time someone asks me.

@Amon_RA.

I did a soft reset after saving the APN setting but still the same problem.

Thanks anyway.

I will search further.

Regards

Edit: I solved the problem. it was my mistake inserting the word "web" into the last field of APN settings. I cleared it leaving it blank and there it goes. Thanks.

Hi Amon_RA, I found a bug with your ROM. If I go to Settings -> Locale & text -> Touch Input -> Text Input -> Calibration tool, I get a force close :(.

Gave the v1.0.0 rom a try last night and it seems pretty good so far.

I notice there's an update for it already - is there an easier way to apply this rather than a full reinstall?

Can I update without a wipe and will that keep all my settings?

Or can I just get this updated clicker app (As APN's are not really important to me - mine's not on any of the lists)

    Thanks for the update! I know I've asked once, but are you planning to include the CRC1 (OTA update) fixes?

    Also, is there anyway to change how the phone numbers display on my phone? I'm not used to having the dashes after every 3 numbers :(.

    Update:
    cytown has released a modified Phone.apk that will vibrate the phone when someone has answered your call. I've loaded it and it's working well so far. The link:

    going to try this with a 2708 kernel and report. anybody else tried the extra RAM radio/spl with this rom?

    [edit]
    So far everything works fine but the camera - can't get it to save. I'm also missing quite a few apps that unbeknown to me where 2.x only :( - zeam launcher and ray dialer mainly.

    edit 2] bluetooth's a bit wonky. will not switch off immediately if at all.
    ezterry's ram hack takes from camera, so for the camera to work, you will need to use the 1m pixel setting.
