I've had this rom for a couple of months now, and I have this weird problem: my touchscreen is partially not working since a few weeks ago, a vertical part of the screen, lets say a finger thick is not responding. And I'm wondering if this could be a hardware fault or a software fault. Rebooting the device isn't working either.

What I'm also wondering is, if that part would be dead hardware wise, shouldn't be my whole touchscreen be dead? I have no idea how a touchscreen works.

Hi Brambizimski,

No it's perfectly possible for a capacitive touchscreen as fitted to the Dz/G2 to have a single faulty area. I would of course recommend doing a full superwipe+ (after doing a backup of course) and then doing a completely clean ROM reflash to be completely sure it's not a software issue.

Might be worth redownloading B5 and checking the MD5 to make sure the download is ok before flashing - that will pretty much exclude all software causes.

If the problem still exists it's more than likely either a new touchscreen needs fitting or at least the connections checked on your existing one.

Not a job for the fainthearted though - you need someone who is pretty happy with phone repairs to complete it.

Regards

Bog :)

Thanks a lot for your fast response! I'm getting pretty sure it's a hardware fault though, I have the Touch recovery from ClockworkMod and even on that part it doesn't respond to touch (which has nothing to do with the ROM right?).

Thanks again!

Hi,

No it sounds pretty definite that the digitiser (touch screen) is either faulty or has a loose connection (not unknown to happen)

Try flashing 4ext recovery - better than clockworkmod and if that shows the same issue then it's time to break out the screwdrivers.

Although I'm pretty certain it's impossible, you could try reflashing the radio to see if that has any effect but I'm virtually positive that has no control over the digitiser functions.

I've had to replace a couple of digitisers on Desire Z's - it's not actually that difficult but it requires patience because of the construction of the phone, having a fold out keyboard (good side effect is that you can tighten up a loose hinge at the same time if you have that problem

I've been experiencing a few of the same bugs as others (currently running Beta 5).

1. Screen auto-rotates, even though I turned that feature off in the general settings and the launcher settings. Can't seem to get it to turn off.

2. When I answer or make a call, the phone immediately goes into speaker phone mode.

3. The phone goes into car mode randomly. One fix mentioned in this thread was to clean out the usb port with an air compressor, I will try that when I get home. My usb port is a little damaged I think anyway as many of my usb cables won't properly charge the phone, but others will.

One thing to note, I just recently flashed the latest radio (the one ending in .19). I know, finally right? But yes, it makes a huge difference in the phone's performance. If anyone is a dummy like me, but has not flashed the latest radio, do it now. Just a tip.

I'm seeing many of the same problems others have. Lockups, distorted text, slow downs and so on. Haven't been able to fix it myself so here's hoping beta 6 will fix it. I don't know how to help narrow down the bugs but let me know if I can add some info mg logs. All the other versions before 5 have been faster and more stable for me.

I agree with this; I've been adjusting everything I can including Supercharger settings and performance settings and overclock settings, this is by far a huge step back in performance, I don't know what possibly could be causing any of this. And yes I indeed did a full wipe, so that isn't going to fix these issues as another poster suggested.

Just the other day I was sweating and got my phone covered with it. Later in the day I found my buttons not working anymore on the screen. Luckily I have some spare parts for the Desire Z to change the Digitizer. Not hard to do, but time consuming process. Be careful with any liquid with your phones, the digitizer damages easy.

Exactly. My digitizer messed up a couple of weeks ago. The section of the keyboard where the G is located would get activated when I touched near the T of the T-Mobile at the top of the phone.

Got it changed for the Indian equivalent of $50 incl labor so not bad. No more T-Mobile branding though so that's a good thing.

Using Tasker to force CPU

Hey guys, so I wanted to tweak my CPU processor a bit more and realized that each time the screen turned off and back on, the settings were not remembered. So I set Tasker to force the max (1.4Ghz)and min(748Mhz) when the screen goes on and off. Is there anything that could go wrong with that?

Thanks again! Sorry for the late reply, apparently I still had manufacturer warranty so I got HTC do come and get my device for repair, I'll let you know how it turned out. I hope they don't see it as accidental damage though.

Hi,

I'm going to connect my G2 to my VW BT Kit Premium. I can connect it with rSAP now (rsap-android.com) but I want to use the modem feature of this kit to have gmail sync, and Icoyote which uses data mobile connection...

The rsap-android dev do a plugin (DUN) to do that but I need ppp_async.ko to finish the configuration.

I tried to add ppp_async.ko to my G2, but I need the kernel file to that.

Anyone could give me a link to download it?

Or if anyone should give me the ppp_async.ko for this release (audacity 5), it would be cool!! ;)

Thanks

Is anyone having a problem mounting an SD-ext partition using this rom? It showed up fine when I was running CM7, but doesn't show up now...

Otherwise, this seems to be running well, thanks Finny!

    Andromadus Audacity Beta 5

    We have come a long way since our first attempts back in November '11. I am proud to say we have finally hit beta. With hitting the new milestone we have added a new word to our ROM and that is Audacity. Why did we put Audacity in the name? Well the word Audacity means: boldness or daring, especially with confident or arrogant disregard for personal safety, conventional thought, or other restrictions. And that is exactly what we were when we took on the task of Ice Cream Sandwich for our HTC Vision/G2/Desire Z. We hope you enjoy our rom!

    What is This?
    We present to you ICS built from source for your HTC Vision, G2, or Desire Z. This thread will also be used for all DEVing for ICS until we work out all the kinks with it.

    What Works?
    Radio ( Phone & Mobile Data, SMS/MMS )
    Touchscreen
    Wifi
    Bluetooth
    Physical Keyboard
    Audio
    Real Full HW Accel
    Screen Orientation
    GPS ( Kinda )
    USB - UMS
    Camera ( Kinda )
    Other Things

    What Doesn't?
    You Tell Me

    Code:
    #include 
    /*
     * Your warranty is now void.
     *
     * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
     * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
     * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
     * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
     * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
     */

    Andromadus Alpha 13

    As usual here you go...Dark can clean up shortly :D

    Andromadus Alpha 13 mini changelog.

    I have been spending much of my free time on this recently and unless some things change after this release is out I will have to slow down a little as there is loads of work I need to do that I have been putting off to work on this. Would be that working on this paid then I could pay somebody to do the work I need to do and continue kanging away, That not being the case you'll all just have to be patient for a while instead :)

    So many things have changed that I'm not going to list them all as you would still be reading them hours from now, if you're really that interested you can read the commit History on github, some of them might be slightly amusing even as there isn't a way to stop me committing stuff when drunk, which is a fair bit of the time!

    Qcom OMX integrated - SD YouTube fixed, Netflix Fixed
    CRT on/off animation fixed (on seems a little funky but hey....)
    Custom LED notifications
    Switched to Cyanogenmod Volume Wake and Volume music control (old toggles removed)
    Fixed the Flashlight power widget
    Integrated CM's signal settings (6 bar toggle still works if you have icon's selected)
    Lots of Qcom media/display updates.
    Switched to using Lord Clockan's kernel, I like it.
    Camera updates (is it just me being lucky or do most of the artifacts on pics at 5MP go away after you take a few pictures?)
    Loads of other stuff CM changed/fixed/added along the way.
    Goo manager included (dark made me do it...)
    So much more that I can't remember!
    Tweaks included!

    Use whatever gapps you like but I'm still using v11 quite happily!
    If you have issues do a SUPERWIPE and REFLASH everything before clogging the thread up. REALLY!

    This is my final warning:

    1.) Please stop "moderating" this thread. There is no need to have people posting the same warning every few comments. IE "Use the thanks button" - Obviously they are not listening, and it is just as un-useful as the posts saying thank you.

    2.) If your post starts with "this will probably get me in trouble but..." DO NOT F***ing post it!

    3.) Read the OP and report bugs in the bug tracker...this is still a development thread, let them do their thing.

    4.) NEVER should you be rushing them to get to work. Remember, they do this on there own time, and for free. If you want it faster, learn to do it yourself.

    5.) If your post is not going to aid in the development DO NOT POST!!!!

    On a last note: I will no longer be issuing warnings. I will be issuing infractions.

    Changelog:
    Updated to Qcom's ICS Adreno libs
    Updated patches for a few things from CM, profiles etc,
    Whatever else CM has changed in the mean time.
    And obviously everything else I forgot about.
    Camera works with a few "issues"
    There are 2 5MP options the first one produces complete garbage, the second works find apart from a small line across the bottom, sometimes it's there sometimes's it's green, sometimes it's pink, occasionally it goes away until the next reboot when it's back again.....
    Camcorder - yes it works only at one res at the moment though 720x480
    Panorama works also.
    Had another go at fixing usb tethering as well...
    Other bug fixes and patches not mentioned here.

    Rom Download
    If you still have GooManager installed just restart your phone or click Check for rom updates and it should ask you to download.

    So here we are again, as I mentioned I'm rather busy so this could have been out days ago if I had the time. Whoever decided that decorating half a house at once was a good idea is clearly insane! oh wait....

    What's changed?

    Updated to Qcom's ICS Adreno libs
    Updated patches for a few things from CM, profiles etc,
    Whatever else CM has changed in the mean time.
    And obviously everything else I forgot about.

    Now the big ones...

    I think that's us "Feature Complete"

    Which means......naa I leave that for dark :)
