Hi, I am a Prepaid subscriber. I just meant my phone came as a bundled smartphone from a relative's data plan with my carrier Globe. Is there a difference if I flash CM nightly using TWRP? Do u think it will make mobile data work? Thanks. To others, please also chip in suggestions as to how I can make the mobile data work on my i9505 running cm 12.1 nightly 07/13. Thanks again

is your mobile data just disconnecting or you can't start a mobile data connection? if you have connected, what kind of connection did you get?
i'm on Smart data plan, with my S4 acquired thru Smart's retention plan. I had it unlocked though, and flashed an XTC CSC firmware to get rid of those software bundled with the SMA CSC firmware.
regarding recovery, just want to know as how you flashed CM. the usual suspect would be, old modem firmware or wrong APN.
also, you can try the Optimized CyanogenMod 12.1 builds also by AntaresOne. you have to manually set the APN settings for that one though.

I forgot to mention that i'm currently on 07/12, and previously had the 07/01 Optimized CM 12.1 build, although i kept a nandroid backup of the 07/01 with all the apps installed sitting in my sd card.

The last one I tried was 0708 and the lag was there!
But now it seems to be fixed

GPS lock took a lot of time but its working.
Seems to be fluid. Can recommend this nightly as far as one can say after using it for a few hours :p

That's strange because i also had this lag in older builds but now it is 100% gone. I did 3 clean installs the last weeks and i never had this lag again when i switch live display on.

No more ringtone & notification sound

Hi all,

I've just updated my cyanogenMod to recent build 12.1-20150705-NIGHTLY (full wipe, cache..) and found that I lost all of my ringtones and notification sounds, even those which are default by cynanogen. Someone could tell me which may cause this problem please?

Thank you

Here's again my remark. I just did a fresh install (full wipe, cache, system,...) of 12.1-20150716-NIGHTLY and in the ringtone sound option, there's no choice available. I tried disabling the system profile, but nothing changed. But when I set the system user to Invited, all of the ringtones seem to come back. How could I fix this bug please? Or I had to delete my cyanogenmod account?
Thanks in advance.

Maybe this mod checks if the apps in data are more recents than the apps to install. I didn't notice that!:silly:

Bluetooth problem

Hello.

I still encounter problems with Bluetooth when connecting to my car (OPEL Corsa).
In most cases, my SGS4 pairs successfully, but, in the middle of the adress book transfer, I get the (famous !) message 'Unfortunately, Bluetooth share has stopped'.

I then have to go to "Settings -> Applications -> Bluetooth share" and wipe all data ; then, I restart my phone, and try another bluetooth pairing process ; after several tries, it succeeds in transferring the adress book, and then works perfecttly until next attempt.

I succeeded this morning in getting a full logcat, using SysLog app.
Here is how it happened :
  1. I successfully paired my SGS4 to my car
  2. I got the error message 'Unfortunately, Bluetooth share has stopped' while transferring the address book
  3. I tried to go to Settings -> Applications -> Bluetooth share, but I then I got a message 'unfortunately, Settings process has stopped' :(

Hope this logcat will help.

Best regards.

I've tried a couple of applications which automatically turn BT on and off according to a time schedule, and in each case I get the BT sharing has stopped error shortly after BT has been switched on automatically. Switching on/off manually doesn't cause the issue.

    This is going to be a slightly long post. :) I started digging in to the Bluetooth problem, because it's been bothering me since, well, forever, both on Galaxy S4 (I9505) and S2 (I9100). Turns out its quite a mess with multiple moving parts, so to speak.

    First thing I found is that the Broadcom vendor library for Bluetooth is missing an implementation for a function called "ssr_cleanup". Our S4 uses Broadcom, so this is definitely an issue. The implementation is missing all the way upstream in AOSP sources.
    File in question: https://github.com/CyanogenMod/android_hardware_broadcom_libbt/blob/cm-12.1/src/bt_vendor_brcm.c (Google: https://android.googlesource.com/pl...libbt/+/android-5.1.1_r4/src/bt_vendor_brcm.c)

    This missing function causes the following error in the log:
    Code:
    E/bt-hci  ( 3577): Num consecutive HCI Cmd tout =2 Restarting BT process
    E/bt-btif ( 3577): bte_ssr_cleanup
    F/libc    ( 3577): Fatal signal 11 (SIGSEGV), code 1, fault addr 0x0 in tid 9919 (bluedroid wake/)
    I did my own implementation for this, mimicking the ssr_cleanup in Qualcom BT vendor lib. Compiled, replaced /system/vendor/lib/libbt-vendor.so and "Fatal signal 11" disappeared from the logs. Just as expected.

    However, this is NOT what causes the random BT disconnects. ssr_cleanup is just what happens after BTU HCI commands timeout twice consecutively.

    When BTU HCI commands time out twice consecutively, the following takes place:
    • ssr_cleanup is called
    • wait 20 milliseconds
    • "Killing the process to force a restart as part of fault tolerance" (i.e. the Bluetooth process is killed)
    So, just to test, I removed killing of the Bluetooth process from the code. Compiled, replaced system bluetooth.default.so, and ssr_cleanup/killing the process no longer happens.

    Of course, this didn't help, because things have already gone wrong when the HCI commands are timing out.

    As a note: at this point, the Bluetooth connection was stable for a random length of time (first test 3 hours, this morning a few minutes). Once the HCI commands start timing out, the connection will become unstable, possibly disconnect from my computer/car's handsfree, and it will remain so until Bluetooth is restarted. Of course, with the modifications I had implemented, the BT process was not automatically killed/restarted.

    I googled for "BTU HCI command timeout", and found that it's a common problem for at least Samsung Galaxy S3, Nexus 5, and HTC One. On StackOverflow, somebody commented that: "Of note, with specific code, the Galaxy S4 will automatically reconnect when this occurs, leading us to believe there is an issue in the BLE stack that Samsung identified and developed custom handling for." So Samsung may have implemented a way of quickly restarting the BT process without interfering with the ongoing connections. I have noticed when using I9505 GPE 5.0.1 that sometimes the BT connection becomes unresponsive for a second or two, but then just resumes without disconnecting.

    So what this boils down to is:
    • We need to find out why BTU HCI commands are timing out, and can we avoid it?
    • Figure out how to recover from this situation without breaking the Bluetooth connections
    • Or at least quickly connect/disconnect when faults occur
    Before these problems are figured out, I doubt that CM or AOSP will have reliable Bluetooth on Galaxy S4.
    Bluetooth works just fine for me on stock TW or GPE roms, but I really like CM much more because of its smoothness and functionalities...

    I have thought of replacing the CM Bluetooth with GPE implementation. However, I do not have the skills for that. Simply replacing the BT-related .so and .apk files ended up in loads of FCs.
    @AntaresOne Any idea how to start fixing this BT?

    you guys need to realize that the handfull of people contributing for jf have moved on from jf. we get no benefit from this. lots of complaining not lots of logs

    Be assured that your work and join in discussion is appreciated not only by jf owners.
    [emoji4]
    jactivelte and other Qcomm devices profit when competent people do real coding in Gerrit like you do.

    When comparing the commits of (not sure if still maintainer?) AntaresOne:
    http://review.cyanogenmod.org/#/q/owner:"Mattia+D'Alleva+%3Cantaresone%40antaresone.eu%3E"

    with

    dcd:
    http://review.cyanogenmod.org/#/q/owner:"dcd+%3Cdcd1182%40gmail.com%3E"

    the difference in numbers of merged commits is jaw-dropping [emoji6]


    Agree with you that output of logcat is more helpful than words like "X or Y not working".

    Please do stay.

    ThumbsUp button under every post is free to use in case you're in the mood to show appreciation.

    Or started own projects based on CM like "Optimized CyanogenMod 12.1 builds". I still dont get it. Why do we need a optimized Build. Why can't people just contribute those "optimizations" and fixes to the normal CM repo, so that everyone can profit.

    So, the point of sending patches to gerrit seldom makes some people acting bad saying that somebody or his work are useless. I have never been a fulltime developer with all the other things I have to do outside jf and while jf tree is practically done. You started comparisions between me and another maintainer, now seriously, do we need that? What can you get from it?

    Some people still think that CM maintainers are paid, so I'm basically nothing more than a thief since I'm committing once in a period. Now dear people, CM maintainers are NOT paid. I am in Italy, not in the U.S., situation is very bad and quality of life terribly decreased. More than "losing time" on something which doesn't give me any form of payment I focus in working on what can really give me some money back, but I'm glad to commit on gerrit when needed.

    If the dev(s)/maintainer don't read this thread (busy with work and personal life, summer etc.) is defined as useless, right no?

    Optimized ROM is how I personally want CM, and 99/100 things inside can't be added to official CM due to how these things work. I am free to do whatever I want.

    "Why do we need", remember you're not paying for what you can find here. You can't say that in respect of me, my team and whoever spends time doing something for the community. Very bad, rude and offensive. @feydakin: you used that ROM and now saying that is useless, nice job...

    How many times I asked for a log and didn't get anything? I always checked this thread daily and daily wrote here before half of June. Even if I'm not writing I'm still always checking. Don't be bad and arrogant with me only because @dcd1182 is here, but keep intact your common sense, respect in me and seriousness as it was before. I have never been arrogant or disrespectful with you.

    Lastly, just for the chronicle, my XDA activity decreased a lot since June (I have a personal life, don't know about you) and I'm sorry if I missed many messages.

    Close OT.

    Hi guys, which has been the most stable nightly so far? Thanks

    Hello,
    I would install the most recent, always contains latest patches which are not available in the older builds

    EDIT: I saw the other user said that every build after 4 August has issues with LiveDisplay. So install that one, I can't check myself if it's actually working or not at the moment
