Sound goes out and restarts

I have the new Cyanogen mod installed and I can listen to music with the HTC adapter and headset I have. however if I receive a text message while listening to music all sound drops from my headset. I also think it drops from the entire device even if I remove my adapter from the phone and everything.
The only way for me to be able to get sound back is to restart my phone. I don't want to do this because sometimes my phone will get into a resarting loop and I have to wait for about 30 minutes before I can turn it on again. I also cannot adjust the volume of calls when I am speaking to people. that has always been that way though. I have checked the settings but can't seem to be able to change anything. help!

Hey guys. I just installed CyanogenMod v 4.0.4 on my Dream (Rogers) and now I keep getting network errors. Is there a way I can see what is wrong?

Would this be a good place to comment on the alarm clock?
Not a fault or a bug, jsut a suggestion. The 10 minute timeout was increased to 30. Any chance this can be 60?? I dozed off after 2nd snooze this am and woke up half an hour late!

*Generic thanks for a great ROM comment*

Battery Usage in 4.0.4

I updated to 4.0.4 from 4.0.1 without a wipe.

The first thing I noticed was that the battery usage was double 4.0.1 and that the back of the G1 was warm.

When I tweaked the CPU speed back to 384, the heat went away but the battery usage was still double that of 4.0.1.

What could be causing the extra drain? I am losing 10% of battery every 1.5 hours with the screen off.

Does anyone know how to migrate to a larger SD card? Even creating a disk image with dd and copying it to the new card doesn't work. It just shows up as a blank card. I also tried copying all the files but that doesn't work, either. It shows the program icons, but half of them crash when I try to run them. Any ideas?

You can try and use gparted to copy the partitions from one to the other. Another alternative is Acronis Disk Director, which is not free, but well worth the $40.00. If all of this does not work, backup all the files from your old card using rsync. Format the new card and rsync it back.

I just installed 4.0.4 and I know it's a very stable rom.. But I am getting FC''s on the browser. it reads.. The application browser ( has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again. I have tried restarting and still nothing. with a wipe and everything. I did install Ted's theme but didn't try it before I did. Any suggestions what to do though? It just took about 1 hour doing all of the re installing apps and setting up everything just to find out this. So a easy fix i'd love to hear :) . Thanks guys

Nevermind I fixed it by going into applications and clearing things and force stopping it. If anyone has this random problem. I think it came from backup from root users backing up my bookmarks for the first time. I never attempted it, but I tried it this time. But is anyone getting that logo in their notifcations bar. Like cirlces with dots around it?. even clearing the notifcations it doesn't go away. Restart either. Thanx again guys

Download backup for root users from the market. This will allow you to backup the .apk's in your ext3 partition to your sd card. Once you get your new sd card partitioned and formated, use backup for root to reinstall your apps that it backup (as well as anything else you had root backup).

Word to the wise... do not use backup for root to backup your market db. I found that re-importing the market db caused all my apps to FC.

Has any1 found a true solution to this problem? or should i just wait for 4.2?

Bad outgoing sound

Hi there,

I tried Cyanogen twice... 1st time, 4.1.6, 2nd time, 4.0.4

This rom is hell fast :) Thank you for the work. Looks very promising. For now, I will not use it for the following reasons thou:

4.1.6 was unstable. Everytime it came out of idle, I had many "Force/Wait" pop up. I could just click "wait" on every box, it was then ok. But kind of annoying.

4.1.6 and 4.0.4: I've been told by callers and called, that they couldn't hear me well... Microphone sound is too low, and something, sound quality is quite bad for them.

I reapply my nand backup until Cyanogen shows some improvement on this side.

I just moved to 6GB card class 6 card from a 4GB class 2 card and I did below mention steps.

1) Took a nandroid backup.
2) format and partitioned the new SD card using gparted.
3) copy the nandroid backup to the new sd card from computer.
3) restore the nandroid backup.

I was done in line 10 min, and everything is working correctly.

I have also developed this problem in the last few days. I have been running 4.0.4 since it first came out and have had no such issues, but a few days ago I decided to convert my ext2 partition to ext3 (seems to be faster and more stable). Ever since I converted, my calls are not identified unless I press the "menu" key. I am not sure if it's a coincidence or if it has something to do with the conversion from ext2 to ext3, but so far, nothing I've tried has helped.

    The old massive thread has been closed!

    Check out the new website: - thanks to SatanR1!!

    I am maintaining a custom ROM based on Android 1.5r3 (crossbred with Donut) focusing on performance, reliability, and safe usage of apps on SD, with some additional features. Yes, this will work just fine on your non-ADP devices. Versions listed as "experimental" may and will have some issues, so unless you want to be a guinea pig, use the "stable" versions. Major thanks to everyone who is helping to test these ROMs!

    If you have installed a theme that is not specifically designed for this ROM, please don't post bugs here unless you can reproduce them without the theme installed.

    Please search the Android Bug Tracker then check the CyanogenMod Bug Tracker before posting your problem! I do not work for Google and am not going to fix every known bug that exists in Cupcake. Of course, if I created the bug and it's specific to this ROM I will certainly fix it. But please, search before posting bugs. There is a lot of good information in this thread and the old thread and the likelihood that you are the first person to report an issue is very low.

    If you are reporting a bug about a "force close", you need to post the output of "adb logcat" from the crash or there is nothing I can do for you.


    *** DISCLAIMER ***
    While this build is heavily optimized, it is also capable of pushing your G1 much harder. I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or the current economic crisis. Please do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modificiations, and if you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

    * UNIVERSAL! Runs on both Dream and Magic 32B
    * Now identifies itself as either T-Mobile G1 or myTouch (due to popular demand, and T-Mobiles lameness to support ADP devices)
    * Based on AOSP 1.5r3, a heap of Donut, various collected patches, and some help from JF-1.51-ADP
    * Enhanced ramdisk which uses optimal mount options and smart startup
    * Includes E2FSProgs for checking and converting Ext filesystems
    * Apps2SD is automatic! All you need is a second partition (ext).
    * Includes script to upgrade to ext3 (from recovery mode, see FAQ)
    * Supports ext2/ext3/ext4 for Apps2SD
    * Includes HTC Framework, various HTC applications, and HTC VK
    * Launcher with 5 screens and auto-orientation and compact drawer layout
    * Enhanced lock screen (Stericson)
    * Clean filesystem shutdown at poweroff/reboot, and fsck at boot (no FS corruption!)
    * Includes T-Mobile IM application, Amazon MP3 (with Stericson's hack), and updated Google Maps
    * Does not require "DangerSPL"
    * Highly optimized kernel with many extra modules
    * Includes a massive APN list
    * Maximum CPU scaling frequency set to 528MHz with latency tweaks
    * Various enhancements to the Settings app including extra partition space
    * Runs /system/sd/ after A2SD setup and before starting the runtime for user scripts
    * Microsoft Exchange support (Work Email from myTouch)
    * Compcache 0.6 enabled by default (if no userinit is present)
    * Linux cgroups for better app prioritization
    * Power Widget and App Fuel Gauge from Donut
    * Custom boot screen by matt_stang
    * Phone app enhancements by cytown
    * OpenOBEX commandline tools ported by Erin Yueh - just need an app to run them!
    * Ability to add dialer and MMS shortcuts
    * PPTP/L2TP VPN and WPA Enterprise support from Donut
    * MMS enhancements from rgv151
    * FLAC support from Kruton (buy this man a beer)
    * LocationServices memory leak fixed (by itp)
    * Not vulnerable to the "one click root" exploit

    Frequently Asked Questions said:
    1. Do I have to wipe?
    You shouldn't have to wipe if coming from a JF ADP-based ROM, otherwise, probably. If weird things are happening, try wiping. You can also try the permission fixer script linked above. If you are coming from an HTC-based ROM like Hero or Sapphire, you are going to have to wipe.

    2. Will you include the HTC Dialer/HTC Mail?
    No, because I won't be shipping the full HTC-modified Android core (it's not open source), which these apps depend on. I do include the "Work Email" application which is the HTC Exchange client.

    3. Will this work on the Magic?
    It will work on Dream (G1) or Magic 32B (myTouch). I plan to support 32A devices soon.

    4. How do I set up apps-to-sd?
    You need to create a second partition on your SD card in the ext2/ext3/ext4 format. Search the forums if you don't know how to do this. Once created, the ROM will move your apps automatically and new apps will be installed to the SD by default.

    5. How do I install MyFaves?
    Look here:

    6. Will you include feature X, Y, or Z?
    Maybe, ask me about it.

    7. How do I convert to Ext3?
    Reboot into recovery (home + power), drop to a console (Alt+x), and enter: "upgrade_fs". Reboot and you will be at ext3. This requires my recovery image listed above.

    8. Can I use Ext4?
    Yes, the kernel supports it (with delayed allocation fixes) and the required tools are there. You'll need to do the conversion manually, though.

    9. How do I enable the HTC_IME?
    Go into settings->Locale & text and disable "Android Keyboard" and enable "Touch Input".

    10. Can I tether with this?
    Yes. I recommend using Wifi Tether for Root Users

    11. I want to switch back to ext2.
    Reboot into recovery (my recovery image), drop to a console (Alt+X). Remove the journal with "tune2fs -O ^has_journal /dev/block/mmcblk0p2". You should then fsck with "e2fsck /dev/block/mmcblk0p2".

    12. Will you include feature XXX from Hero?
    No. Most of the HTC apps in Hero require the heavily modified closed-source Android core which I won't be including.

    13. My /system/sd is read only and/or didn't upgrade to ext3!
    Your filesystem is probably corrupt. Boot into Recovery 1.2+ and run a filesystem check from the menu. If it tells you to run it manually, drop to a console (alt+x) and run "e2fsck /dev/block/mmcblk0p2".

    14. Is ext3/ext4 safe for my SD card?
    Probably, unless your card is very old and does not support wear leveling. Use Google and decide for yourself.

    15. I have problems with force closes of paid apps and have to reinstall my them after a no-wipe upgrade!
    Run the "permission fixer" script. It is included in this build as well as Recovery 1.2+. Just execute "fix_permissions" from a terminal or the recovery console and reboot.

    16. Can I use your work in my own ROM?
    Of course, I am all about sharing! Just give credit where credit is due.

    17. It's taking forever to boot!
    The first boot will take longer than normal because dexopt needs to run. If you are nervous, connect USB and run "adb logcat" to watch the progress.

    18. My phone rebooted by itself!
    Possible kernel panic or oops. Please get me the output of "cat /proc/last_msg" when you reboot so it can be debugged.

    19. My camera is black and white only!
    You have settings left over from the old Android camera. Just go into the Camera, hit menu, settings, then "reset to defaults".

    20. My auto-rotate/accelerometer isn't working!
    Not really the fault of the ROM, but here's how to fix it: Go into recovery, drop to console, "mount /data", then "rm /data/misc/akmd* /data/misc/rild*" and reboot.

    21. What about swap space?
    As of 4.0, Compcache is activated by default unless a script is present. Search the forums for information on how to create a to activate swap.

    22. Will you include the Flash Player from Hero?
    No, because it's tightly coupled to the Hero Browser, which is tightly coupled to the Hero Framework. It's not easily portable at this point. Run Hero if you want it. Otherwise, we will have to wait for something more compatible.

    If anyone wants to help with these threads, I can probably get a mod to add us a third post for the collected good bits from the thread.

    That would be sweet! Links to different posts within the thread would be much helpful to newcomers.
    Do some research, you'll see that Cyan's ROMs are based on ADP 1.5...and, as of today, with some Donut mixed in.

    What? I understand it's based off ADP 1.5 hence the "ANDROID" boot screen and the device name of Android Dev 1. My question wasn't What is this mod based off of, it is: "Is anyone having problems with Bluetooth? If so, how did you fix it (if it works)." Since it's based off 1.5, and my HTC ADP 1.5 Image uses my BT Stereo headphones properly, what is different?
    Hey all I'm new to flashing roms...

    Why are all of the ringtones/notification tones removed? So you know where I can find them and download them? Thanks.

    For space and try reading the first post. :rolleyes:
