i seem to have run into trouble here...
After rooting my phone is unable to maintain my network...it shows an error message and says no service available...
Tried setting it manually but still comes back to this error after a few minutes...Really strange..has never happened before..Is anyone else having the same problem or is it just me...

Edit: Reflashed and rooted the system again...for some reason it was behaving this way...lets just hope it doesnt come up again.

I have the same problem after flashing new firmaware, although i didn't root it.. I have tried flashing my phone multiple times but same error all the time :( Therefore i am on .145 again

Used to have that problem but i manually set the network and works somewhat fine now...but it does loose network quite easily....



By the way this kernel has had the same problem with the initial CPU frequensy Skewed...the same problem that was reported in DoomLord's Kernel..
Please look into it.. There are certain lags and i think it is due to this
