How about Nova? do you recommend it over launcher3 on this ROM? is there any downside using nova?

I had some minor issues with launcher3 but I don't know if Nova will decrease performance. Which launcher is faster?

LAUNCHER:
Guys, try somebody Apex launcher.
It works on all my other devices great, on the i9003 should be the same.

BUGS:
Why is nobody uploading a logcat? How should dhiru know what is the cause for the bugs? Create logcat just after prolems occur and provide him also few additional info (baseband, clean or dirty flash, last good working fw version etc)

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.

i didn't make any mistake. it can't save and when i reboot the phone only the backlight is working. after that i flashed again the rom. may be it's not editable in phone but in pc or may be using the root explorer? any positive solution about that?

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.

I'm experiencing the same, would like to confirm somehow whether there is a risk or not.

Flash the last build, or maybe, turn on your phone wifi.

where can i find .bak file to delete?

Cm file explorer is buggy, make sure your build.prop after edited do not show 0k file size. If you got 0k filesize, reflash the rom

Another build! :victory: Thanks Dhiru Bhai!

BTW, someone please help me find the instruction to take a log, if some error occurs. Is it the same one that is available in developer options?

Lastly, about that "suspend_backoff" wakelock. It is still happening randomly. Still going through that last_kmsg thing, so hopefully, I will have more data soon. :good:

I left the phone on charge last night, and it was okay for me. Apart from displaying 100% battery, there is no other issue. Charging cuts off properly, imo. Will be flashing the new build though, so hopefully that will solve the issue.

since last kernel

the recovery is difficult to access combo or reboot recovery
when the phone boot, loop splatch screen
I wonder if just the instructions are too fast !

no problem repartitioning
Full LF2 > MF1 > CF-MF1 > rom > reboot recovery perfect converting

suspend_backoff would occur when there were too many wakeup from suspend attempts immediately one after the other due to which the system prevents suspend for a fixed amount of time.

If you are seeing too many of them, the chances are that
  1. Your network signal is too poor and keeps going out of range
  2. You have data turned on and some applications are trying to constantly receive data when the phone sleeps
  3. WiFi is turned on and maybe applications in the phone are receiving data or the WiFi network has too much broadcast traffic (ARP, DHCP, UPnP)
  4. Bluetooth is turned on and discoverable and one of the nearby device constantly tries to scan and negotiate with your device.

Keep the hunt going. Maybe a log will explain which active wakelocks are causing resume from suspend.

Why are you people concerned with phone being fully charged all the time,it used to be like that before cm11,i like it this way,now my phone is every time at 100% and doesn't drop to 55% when its on charger,and what does that change log ' battery driver reverted' mean.Build from January 20 has awesome battery and i can get full day of usage even though my battery is original(old) and 'pregnant'.I experience no drain at all when phone is screen off(all the time in deep sleep).

    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.
