F.A.Q.

1. Unlock Screen then Auto Reboot
Don't touch the lock icon.
From top of the screen bring down the notification screen and select settings button in that.
In settings check if you have any enabled accessiblity services. (thanks to varunbhatbm for the tips)

2. My Battery Life is worst, any solution?
Try match your RIL with your Baseband.
Also, you should discharge your phone below 20%,
and then fully charge the phone.

I'm currently on SelfKang2 and the latest 48mb ics iron kernel. Everything was fine until few hours ago. Since then I've had two random reboots. I am not sure whats causing this but since this build is based on the rc I just wanted to put it out there.

There are always some people voting one star in my thread but do not give any comments and opinions. I hate those and I may not continue development if someone continue to do these silly things.
I gave you 5 stars just because of this. Troll syndrome is everywhere.

Btw, silly reasons should not be a reason to stop development. If you do that it means that the trolls win.

I am on some other ROM now. Will give your one a try sometime later. Thanks for your hard work :D

lol. first time ever... never saw that before (start rating).

good job with this work. i like your cm7 rebuild (using it now) but when tested sk2 i got:
- a reboot, was only one in two days.
- my cam worked 3 or 4 times in 10 attempts for taking a picture and didnt work for video recording.
- the worst bug i've found and this make me back to cm7: Like on MIUI, every time i use wi-fi my phone is incapable to get back to mobile data connection. i need to enable flight mode and disable it to get data connection up again.

if anyone here know how to fix this last bug related please help me. i try a lot of bb/ril combinations, almost (if not) all kernels of this forum, and i try almost roms. i get 100% connection only on cm7. some stock versions gimme that error too.

You are right. I will ignore them and continue to develop because of users like you.
