Hello guys!
Two issues faced on latest build:

1.Got some issue with the music playback. When I try to play songs using Apollo or player pro music app it gets stuck, stops responding & don't play any music. I force stopped the music apps & kept the phone idle for sometime. When I checked the battery after sometime, media server was consuming the battery.
Is anybody facing this issue with music playback..pls test & reply.
Media server stopped consuming battery when I restarted the phone manually.

2. When I switch off the WiFi it still shows in the battery status that it's been switched on all the time..check this also pls.
TIA.

Thanks a lot for ur hard work Dhiru! U r really great as a developer! Hats off!! :)

First off, thanks Dhiru for great update. Battery usage for mobile radio is great now. :highfive:


As always, I tested the rom for last 2 days. Here are few notes:

1) Play store and apps are not able to find the wifi connection. I will try to delete wifi settings to see if that solves it.

2) There is a wakelock which stops phone from going to sleep. "Suspend_backoff" is the name, but there is no other information. Not sure, what it is, but it happens after a couple hours of deep sleep. Phone woke up from deep sleep (no external event like calls, or reminders) and stayed as such for 7 straight hours.

3) This is a big issue, so keeping it on bold. (Apparently) Phone doesn't cut off charging after getting charged to 100%. Normally, I forget to unplug charger, and whenever I unplug it, phone has 90% or so battery. This time, phone was on 100% exact every time I unplugged it.

So, I need some suggestion about the charging issue. How do I make sure that phone is cutting off charge after 100%? I don't want to fry my phone by mistake.

Open file commander. Go to /system. There is a file called build.prop. Open it, scroll to the end. In the 4-5 line from the end, there is "ro_low_ram=true" or similar. Just change it to false, and save the file. Reboot and enjoy. Also, note that you have to do this after flashing the update, every time.

Me too, after edit build.prop then reboot I got only backlight. so you have to reflash this CM11. pull out battery and put it again. go to recovery mode by pressing volume up+power+home button. then flash CM11 again. good luck.

yes, that is the one. ro.config.low_ram. Also, are you sure, you didn't make any spelling mistake? I did once and that caused the bootloop.

Anyway, to solve it is simple. Just flash the same zip file again. No need for factory reset, or anything at all. Simply boot into recovery, select the zip file and install again. It will save your settings as is, and will update the system files. Make sure to use the same build as the one you have.

After that, change the low_ram value again, but make sure to not make any other changes.

Hi everybody:

Can anybody tell the differences of using lowram settings or not? Apart from transparent status bar, are there more differences? Also, does anybody know the free RAM impact of using transparent status bar?

Thanks in advance

Regards

you can also enable lock screen widgets. apart from that, I haven't found any other use. And it just takes 20mb extra for me (after reboot, no extra app or widget running), with both transparent status bar, and lock screen widget turned on.

yes if you reflash again this mean that you replace the build.prop with new one and nothing will happen...

on CM 11 build.prop cant be edited from phone (I dont know why) only on compiuter you need to navigate to system folder in the .zip file and open and edit settings..

I use NexMusic and I have the same problem.So I don't think that the problem is associated to apollo.Also I tried disabling DSP Manager but it didn't help, and the problem occurs randomly so it's quite hard to get a log.

    Installation Instructions


    IMPORTANT! READ BEFORE FLASHING!
    1. If you flash this ROM from Stock ROM, it will wipe data due to different partitioning. The device would reboot while flashing and resume again.
    2. Once on this ROM, the most effective way of going back to any other ROM would be to repartition from Odin.
    3. While converting the filesystem, your efs that has your IMEI is backed up to /emmc/backup/efs. Keep a backup on your PC just in case.
    4. Incase if you don't get a network signal, check if your IMEI and Baseband are proper. If not, go back to stock and try again.
    5. Do NOT use Odin to flash Modems. Due to different partitions, Odin will screw up your existing MTD setup.
