had two restarts yesterday and a random hardfreeze had to remove battery.

is this normal with this rom? ill try updating Siyah to 4.1.5


other than this issue, it seems like a perfect rom.
was happy all day yesterday, used the phone almost 5-6 hours until battery dead first time.

second time used it on/off for about 10 hours. but then i got very sad when it restarted while listening to music and locking screen. (happened on locking screen)

then it happened one more time when putting phone to normal mode from airplain mode.
also hardfreeze later...

I was able to reproduce the cam-flash bug and I've found a cure for it:

Kernel_Dorimanx-V5.86-B4-ICS-JB-00-01--10-10-12-SGII-PWR-CORE.zip

get it from here: http://dorimanx.shine.sk/

no more exit-cam-flash :cool:

I'm running Rootbox 3.0 with Dorimanx 7.4 and with stock cm kernel I still had the camera flash on exit bug. After installing Dorimanx, the problem is gone. It is confirmed with the flash set on auto. I take a picture and flash goes on. Then immediately I exit the camera and no flash on exit. Great :thumbup:

I love this rom, but the only thing that's bugging me are the force closes in the messaging app. When it does work, the app slows down when entering someones name in a new message. Can anyone help? Thanks.

I wish there is some update to this ROM. Went back from Rootbox 3.0 after facing severe freeze on all kernels and even the stock it came with. Tried nightlies, still the same. Maybe my phone cant handle CM10 stuffs since i dont see much people are complaining bour the freezing issues which turned up severe lately.

Long live ICS!

did you do a full wipe?

Yes i did everytime.. i also did a full internal SD format in case it was caused by leftovers. Stock kernel, dorimanx, siyahv5 all failed on me for JellyBean. Cant survive even for at least 12hrs without a freeze. Been running rootbox 1.8 now for more than 12hrs now without a crash. *good*

Is this a hardware failure that my phone cant handle the new mali stuffs or new cpu controls in JB? Tried increasing voltage from +25 to +50 on all clockspeed in hope for stability yet still failed. Anyone else facing the same?

Tried wiping cache n dalvik? If it still dosent, try flashing the same rom on top if you didnt do a backup in a while. Else (if you have a backup, eg: i scheduled titanium every 4am), Full wipe and reflash.

Take note justunbean's inverted Gapps dosent do well on ICS. Or maybe its conflicting with the ones in this rom's aroma

I wanna try this rom (i'm not satisfied with latest aokp with mali driver and i'm looking for a stable aokp rom with better battery life), but i need some info.

Is there theme chooser?

installing this rom, will i have updated gapps (inverted or normal)? or i could have problem updating them in play store after flashing this rom? Need to flash another zip file for updated gapps skipping gapps in aroma?

Which kernel is adviced to use with this rom? (maybe siyah 5.0.1?)

Thank you in advance

There is a theme chooser but no themes that come with it default. This one requires you to install gapps its the normal one but you can install the inverted one too don't have link right now and depending on if your gonna change dpi play store can get messed up. I am still on siyah 4.1.5+ and I just managed to get almost 5 hours yesterday and average around up to 3-4 hrs usage time depending on if i play games

    RootBox F.A.Q

    Q: I changed my DPI and my phone crashes when I make or get calls

    A: Flash DPI Phone Fix Posted on OP​


    Q: Where is my external SD Card?

    A: /emmc = External Storage
    /sdcard = Internal Storage​


    Q: I have duplicate media files.. What do I do?

    A:You can unmount SD Card and mount it back or Clear Data for Media Storage and reboot.​


    Q: How can I disable fast dormancy?

    A:Use this app


    Q: Where are the Samsung stuff in this rom?

    A:I will never bloat this rom with Samsung. Here's a thread you could check out.​


    Q: I don't like RootBox toggles, can I get the stock ones?

    A:I already included stock ones in Aroma.​


    Q: What's the different between this Rom and all the other AOKP out there?

    A:It's neat, clean, MANY cherry picked CM fixes and features, very hassle free and of course: my presence​


    Q: Where are the Google apps (GAPPS)?

    A:It's included in Aroma​


    Q: What it Aroma?

    A:It's a unique installation process that allows you to choose the things you want to install before flashing. You can keep the rom pure and bloat free or add as much as you want. The user decides everything!​


    Q: What modem comes with this rom?

    A:This rom does not come with any modem and does not modify your current one, because that's how it should be! Modems are region specific and it is really unwise to include modems with a ROM.​


    Q: I just flashed the ROM but I get no data connection?

    A:Reboot once and you should be fine​


    Q: I flashed Default GAPPS but I don't see Gmail, Youtube or Maps?!

    A:Latest GAPPS package (20120429) does not include these. You have to get them in Play Store.​


    Q: There's no FM radio in here?!

    A:Yup.. Get one from the Play Store. AOKP doesn't support FM radio.​


    Q: What's the best kernel?

    A: Best Kernels

    Here you go guys.. This is why I've been busy lately. Gotta fix mounting points, and we're good to go! Camera works.. Mms works.. Google Now works.. Basically Everything works! Just to clear some doubts.. This is built from my sources and not CM's repo . I started working on JB a while ago ever since sources were released, but the release of device specific source from Codeworkx speeded things up and helped me a lot. So here I am with RootBOX JB. By the way, the same rule still applies, Do not ask for release date. I will not release until I'm satisfied with everything. You guys all know I have high standards when it comes to releases, so be patient.

    [Solution] wlan_rx_wakelock

    History

    I have been searching for a solution to the wlan related wakelock, specifically the wlan_rx_wakelock, since using AOKP. After much searching I gathered that the cause of the wlan_rx_wakelock was as a result of the phone being awoken from deep sleep to send or receive date over wifi. This is thought to be specifically related to dynamic IP addresses.

    I have been getting the wakelocks whilst using various kernels on both HydrogenICS and RootBox and after using a data packet sniffer Shark I was able to find some help.

    Solution

    I realise that there is a solution in the form of disabling IPv6 and various other services in the network properties from a computer essentially trying to disable ongoing traffic but unfortunately there have been accounts where this is only temporary. This solution would also be out of my hands in the case of using a wifi connection at work or another persons house. So essentially I was looking for a solution I could use from my phone, rather than turning wifi on and off each time i wanted to go on the internet.

    Anyway whilst randomly googling I stumbled accross the thread of the Fluxi kernel for AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II SGH-I777 and in particular this post.

    Steps For Manual Disabling of IPv6

    1. Install GScripts Lite

    2. Download attached txt file and rename extension .sh

    3. Place file in sdcard/sl4a/scripts

    4. Open GScripts Lite, add script, name the script, tick need SU, press load file and select disable_ipv6.sh and press save.

    5. Select script from screen and script will run.

    NB I get a force close when GScripts auto closes but the script itself works.

    You can check if the script has worked by going to proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/wlan0/disable_ipv6 - open the file as a text and you should see 1 if its ipv6 is disabled and 0 if it isn't.

    Unfortunately you will have to run this script everytime you go out of wifi range or turn the wifi toggle on and off as it reverts back to being enabled when either of these events occur. There seems to be a permanent disabled option included in the xxtweaker app over in the forum but I don't have the skills to even start looking at that.

    Steps For Automated Disabling of IPv6

    1. Download Tasker from Play Store

    2. Create New profile > State > Net > Wifi connected
    Leave Wifi Connected Settings blank

    3. Create New Task > Misc > Run Shell

    command: echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/wlan0/disable_ipv6
    Check Use Root


    Results

    Anyway I have tested this out on both my home and work wifi networks and have noticed considerable improvements in reducing wlan_rx_wakelocks and ultimately improving battery life. There are also many success stories over on the original thread.

    I hope this can be of use to anybody suffering with similar wakelocks.
