2. When I first opened Mobile AP it force closed. It was fine in all subsequent attempts. I was in airplane mode in the first instance and had turned it off at the second attempt and turned it back on in the third attempt, related????

3. This was odd. When you pull down the notifications bar while it is media scanning it slows down considerably???? or is it me going mad???? media scanner speed although much faster than 2.3.4 was sometimes not consistent.

4. Was wondering around this morning listening to some music and during this process the music stopped once and the volume increased, this would be the first time that has happended to me while having it in my pocket, a bug or accidental button touching???

Your working on this but ill post it anyhow.
4. Wont shutdown, reboot, or go into recovery. Sticks on blank screen after animation is complete. Now im only guessing here but i think you dont have enough images to complete the animation script/ code which may be set to 36 you have 26, so unless you add more images or alter the source/ script, it will stick. Im not sure why but on some roms it will stick when you do this while on others you can alter them and it wont, not sure why though.

5. Cant turn on bluetooth in airplane mode through settings but you can from the power control, never seen that before.

6. Wheres all the static wallpapers from stock, you can remove the muse ones but include the others.

7. No folder options to create or add an exisiting app based folder. Maybe I dont have any apps that use that installed at the moment.


I dont like the openvitality icon in the notifications bar and those grey lines if you added them, their ugly, was making feel nauseous last night and its really beginning to annoy me already lol o) You can sell yourself in the about phone section. Maybe its these that are slowing down the media scanning, when its semi-pulled down.

2. Stock camera still shuts down at 15% battery, I use Camera ICS anyhow. Ive seen some solutions to this online before, I think you need to open up the apk.


1. I like most of this build but particularly, the startup and shutdown animations, good combo. Incidentally where is the start up animation stored?

Other comments relating to GPS/ Sensors.

1. The GPS has a variable fix unlike stock EH29 which was constant, obviously this ROM doesnt resolve my long standing gps wont restart issue lol o)

2. This rom includes those updated or improved sensor files that I mentioned previously resulting in compass/ google maps activities not gettting stuck in the horizontal axis.


2.3.4 (EH29 stock) (ill look at file size the next time I flash it)
2.3.6 86.20k

3. Although its pre-configured well already, if its possible I would still like to see the DSP settings app installed or is this for later OS releases?

4. Quickpic is still my preferred photoviewer

Didnt they post an MMS fix for MeteroPCS 2.3.6 update???
Fixing MMS (Send & Receive)

Overall I have to say that its probably the best non-2.3.4 build out there, as the kernel has been maintained everything works.

Looking forward to beta 2.
Thanks for the feedback.

Let me answer a few of the comments in sequence.

Potential problems:

1) The startup disappearing is directly related to the bootanimation hack.
I have the animation set to an infinite loop, but it doesn't want to play infinitely for some reason. Unfortunately there will be nothing done about this, as the hack is not my work. =\

2)Keep testing out the Mobile AP m8. This is good stuff. I havent tested it in depth myself yet, as I've been busy making fixes and building the ROM.

3)That is an odd bug. I have not experienced it personally. Media scanning is a bitch regardless. I was actually going to pose a poll once this goes stable to see if people would want the media scanner removed. I mean, if you keep all your pics/media/music in the designated android folders, it still auto caches -- media scanner is responsible for picking out media from your sdcard as a whole, not from specific folders.

4)Most likely you hit a button in your pocket that increased the volume. As for the music stopping, Im not too sure. I've never had that happen -- and thats one feature that I have been testing daily, as I use my phone at work as a music player.
If it can be reproduced multiple times with a variety of mp3's we'll have to address it.

5) Hahaha about turning on bt regardless of airplane mode. You are _not_ suppose to be able to use bt with airplane mode on. haha. I'll have to look into that once mms is solved. In the meantime, just to avoid errors, just dont turn on bt through power control when airplane mode is on.

6)With this stock generic build, the wallpapers were not present. I feel no need to add them really.

7)That is Holo Launcher Limitation (no folder options). Install a 3rd party launcher (ADW for instance) for those options. Im not _too_ sold on Holo Launcher the more I mess with it, but it _is_ quite fast on our systems for the options that it does have. I may change it in the future.


OpenVitality text always stays. It will be updated with revision numbers. Just how I do it.
I'll look into other notification backgrounds -- I can see what you mean with the lines, although I like them personally.

Havent gotten around to the camera fix as of yet. On the to-do list.

I'll look into dsp apk, although you can just install a 3rd party dsp mgr if you wish.

MMS fix was for MetroPCS specific phones. Im working on an MMS fix now, but it will take some time to figure out how to apply the patch to the ROM.

Thanks for the feedback, I hope I've answered some of the questions to your liking.
