Hi,

is anyone else experiencing slow charging times?
I did a full wipe before updating but since switching to CM12 my charging times are painfully slow.
Takes 4+ hrs for a full charge...

Thanks

Charging is fine for me. Are you using the stock Samsung charger? You can use an app called Ampere from the play store to measure how much your charger is putting out. It should be 1900mA with the stock charger.

This has nothing to do with this ROM development. Go to a general s4 Q&A section.

I just tried to get the problem you are having and it does not happen me, maybe a full wipe? Turn off live display maybe?

Did a full wipe, reinstalled cm12 with gapps. It's only getting worse!

You might want to consider going back to TW stock then see if this certain problem still happens. If it does show all those green lines and flickering on stock, then it's not CM12 and most definitely not Stock TW. Its your phone. Also, what firmware base are you using? Hope you don't mind me asking.

Use a different camera

How to display "day of week" next to clock in status bar? GravityBox (lollipop version) do not display.

Gravitybox is not to be used on custom ROMs as stated in the op of that thread

Google camera from the playstore

Bluetooth Issues

Great Rom and the battery life is amazing, but hands free Bluetooth when connecting to my car does not work. It cuts in and out.
I did read about older versions of this rom with the same issues,and for me sadly the same with the latest build.

Does anyone know of a fix for this?

I posted an alternative camera app a couple pages back. Open Camera It's a good simple alternative if our stock cam or Google cam go bonkers. ;)

Sorry friend but Xposed doesn't really play well with pure CM12 yet. :(

Can one hint me: I installed CM12 on my SGS4 where I have a 64 GB external SD-Card.
Now I notice that this sdcard is read only. In Terminal (through SSH, as root user) I get always read-only file system for a try to delete or rename a file:
Code:
1|[email protected]:/storage/sdcard1 # ls -al
-rwxrwxr-x root     sdcard_rw  10 2015-03-23 00:05 test.txt
[email protected]:/storage/sdcard1 # rm test.txt
rm: test.txt: Read-only file system
1|[email protected]:/storage/sdcard1 #
This is my storage folder:
Code:
[email protected]:/ # ls -al /storage/
dr-xr-xr-x root     root              2015-04-05 15:16 emulated
lrwxrwxrwx root     root              2015-04-05 15:18 extSdCard -> /storage/sdcard1
lrwxrwxrwx root     root              2015-04-05 15:14 sdcard0 -> /storage/emulated/legacy
drwxrwxr-x root     sdcard_rw          2015-04-05 11:55 sdcard1
drwx------ root     root              2015-04-05 11:55 usbdisk

I tried a lot now with a init.d script which is not working and then a tasker task done on boot but the external SD-card remains Read-Only.
I thought with Android 5 the restriction to write on external sd was partly removed and anyway on CM there is no such silliness?

I would like to give permission 777 to the whole ext. sdcard, as I don't need any restrictions. I hate this in my case useless permissions and restrictions. This is many hours now, that I struggle with this issue and I dont see land.
Possible?

Thanks

Backup and reformat your card? I have no such issue. I had an SD card do this to me once but it turned out to be faulty.

I for one am having very few issues with my SGS4 right now... which is weird, and great :good: I think a donation is in order!

I'm so sorry to hear that man. You might want to consider bringing it to someone who knows how to check your screen or board. Like a technician.

    CyanogenMod is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 5.0.2 (Lollipop), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.​

    Code:
    #include <std_disclaimer.h>
    
    /*
     * Your warranty is now void.
     *
     * We are 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 us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you.
     *
     */

    CyanogenMod is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. You will need to provide your own Google Applications package (gapps). CyanogenMod does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

    All the source code for CyanogenMod is available in the CyanogenMod Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to CyanogenMod, please visit our Gerrit Code Review. Your changelog is whatever was merged into gerrit.

    We have de-unified the Galaxy S4 line. Too many issues with having them all in one and a maintainer's nightmare. Look for jfltexx builds now as opposed to the jflte builds you previously used.

    Clearly wrote in OP

    This is not the place to talk about custom kernels, don't report bugs/errors if you use one.

    I know that me and @alucard_24 work together on our custom ROM but this is official CM.

    Original Alucard kernel isn't updated with new stuff, this means broken sensors etc. Only Alucard in our CM custom builds is updated for now (we had to test it, that's why you still don't have an update available)

    GPE system size is being fixed in upcoming build

    For those having a greenish screen on latest nightly:
    Go to Settings -> Display & LED -> LiveDisplay -> Color calibration and set all sliders to about 50% (I have red=50%, green=47%, blue=51%)
    Then press OK, switch off the screen (power button) and switch on again -> voilà, natural colors!
