My brightness works fine since 4.1 Something you can try if you are rooted is an app called adjust brightness. Works really good and can get the screen much dimmer or brighter than the stock settings. Also allows you to lock off button lights and LEDs

Is anyone having issues with the Galaxy S power widget pulldown going away after a reboot. I have to go into settings, uncheck then re check it and it shows right back up.

Good news! Any chance this will work without the data wipe coming from 4.1?

Because there have been tons of changes to the framework and other items, it is highly recommended that you wipe all partitions before installing the ROM.

Just flashed this ROM as per PE website. Previously had PEv4. I'm also having the same problem as jimmyUT. I have to enable the power widget again to make it show up after a reboot. Also, any previous extra buttons I enabled I have enable again to display them, even though they are already checked off. Any previously extra enabled buttons don't show up in the re-ordering list either.

Other than that, my phone loves this ROM just like the previous PE I had. Really enjoying this ROM, thanks GLD.

Jimmy and supasize: did you restore using TiBu and if so, did you restore [SETTINGS/BLUETOOTH] Settings Storage 2.2.1? If you did, that might be the issue and you can try clearing the data for that item in TiBu, rebooting, then setting up all your options in Elite Settings again and see if that helps. If not, I'm sorry for the extra effort and I'm sort of out of ideas!

I think I might have restored [SETTINGS/BLUETOOH] Settings Storage 2.2.1 by accident. In TiBu, I wiped data like you said and for some reason, my HOME button stopped working. It would still have haptic feedback, but nothing else. So I restored that file with TiBu, rebooted and my HOME button started working again. I think I'll live with having to enable the galaxy S tab every time I reboot my phone.

Possibly, I am going to wipe and reinstall later tonight and see if that fixes it.

Where can I get the apk for the blacked out Miui player? I see install instructions on the PE website, but no download file anywhere.

Thanks

Have you checked to see if they have 2 different names in /system/app? ecsnead69 has a tendency to name his stuff "Black _____" so the Blacked Out Muiu may not have replaced the original player.

Weird thing is I don't see any MIUI apk in system/app.
I do have the original in my launcher and it works fine. I did go back and read the thread and I noticed that there is something that says link taken down, broken. There is one zip file still on there which is the one I downloaded, but now I am wondering if that is just the original purple one.. god, i hate purple

Have you ever tried ^3 music player by Filipe Abrantes? It's my fave.

And FYI, xkape's Red Glass theme is available for v4.2 now. http://www.droidforums.net/forum/actngrezy/118578-theme-red-glass-pe-4-2-a.html

Yeah, that is definitely better than MIUI.. thanks for the suggestion. I have never even heard of this one before.

By the way, I wiped and reinstalled 4.2 and I do not have the Pulldown widget issue anymore when I reboot... always shows up now

My voice search is working perfectly. Are you running a theme? Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling voice search? Also, try wiping Dalvik cache.

No theme, I will try to reinstall voice search and report back. What is Dalvik cache and if I wipe it will I have to redo any settings/etc? Also where would I go to wipe Dalvik cache?

This is what happens every time I try to do a voice search ):

Voice search worked fine when I installed ROM, but something went wrong and now does that every time

ALSO:
Elite Settings > General > Extra Applications > Install Alt DeskClock
does not seem to work. This disappointed me because I really want to be able to set alarms via voice commands. I went to that setting and installed the alt deskclock, but still if I did a voice command to set an alarm it would tell me that "the clock app must be updated to support voice commands, and to go to the market to DL the updated clock app". Of course Google has dragged their feet and the market has never gotten the updated clock app. I tested this, of course, before my voice search stopped working on my phone. Can anyone install the alt deskclock from settings and see if it works for you?

EDIT:
Great. I was just on a phone call and my phone crashed.

Here's some information on Dalvik cache: xda-developers - View Single Post - What is Dalvik Cache?

Because, when you install, uninstall and move apps on your phone, the Dalvik cache gets full of items you no longer need, which can gum things up and cause slow-downs, I clean up my Dalvik cache using Titanium Backup every couple of days and clean it entirely once a week or so. It rebuilds itself and you don't lose any of your data (so it won't clear any of your settings, etc.).

With the altDeskClock, I believe what probably happened is that the dev inadvertently put the wrong DeskClock.apk in the altdeskclock download on his server. They're named exactly the same thing, so it's really easy to do. I'll let him know and see if I can find the right one and will put it in an update.zip for you.

I wonder if the kernel is a problem for you, because I've made numerous phone calls of varying lengths and never had my phone crash.

UPDATE: I'm attaching an update zip with the DeskClock that has the voice command functionality. Just know that it's a trade-off: the one with voice commands does not have the ability to change the clock colors.

Because, when you install, uninstall and move apps on your phone, the Dalvik cache gets full of items you no longer need, which can gum things up and cause slow-downs, I clean up my Dalvik cache using Titanium Backup every couple of days and clean it entirely once a week or so. It rebuilds itself and you don't lose any of your data (so it won't clear any of your settings, etc.).

With the altDeskClock, I believe what probably happened is that the dev inadvertently put the wrong DeskClock.apk in the altdeskclock download on his server. They're named exactly the same thing, so it's really easy to do. I'll let him know and see if I can find the right one and will put it in an update.zip for you.

I wonder if the kernel is a problem for you, because I've made numerous phone calls of varying lengths and never had my phone crash.

UPDATE: I'm attaching an update zip with the DeskClock that has the voice command functionality. Just know that it's a trade-off: the one with voice commands does not have the ability to change the clock colors.
Thnx for the info, is there any other app that can clear Dalvik cache? TiBu requires the donate version for that and it simply isn't in the cards right now :/ Or is there a way I can do it myself? Like browse using Root Explorer to delete Dalvik cache myself? - Edit: Never mind, found out a way myself... thought I remembered seeing something about Dalvik cache in recovery and I was right.

Related Question: I always feel like I have a lot of problems after installing new ROMs. Could this be related to all the applications I install after getting on a new ROM?

Ty for the update.zip. I will be installing it and (hopefully once I get my voice commands issue worked out) I will be back to setting alarms via voice commands. What clock color are you referring to? I've never changed it.

Next step should be looking for a new kernel then, I guess? Can anyone suggest a good kernel that is especially stable even for stubborn Droids?

PS: I appreciate all the help you've given (as well as everyone else who has tried to help). My phone seems to give me problems whether it's modded or completely stock. I may just need to get a Droid X or similar phone because I have been getting so sick of all these "quirks" that happen on my phone and seem impossible to solve (without unjustified effort).

You can go into Settings>Elite Settings>General>System Maintenance and clear Dalvik cache there, or you can boot into recovery (assuming you use ClockworkMod), go to Advanced and clear it there.

Flashed this ROM yesterday and since then I have not heard a single call ring. Notifications (email, voicemail, texts) work fine. I have the phone set to never vibrate, the ringtone set to Old Phone and the ringtone volume set to highest level. When choosing a ringtone, all the tones play just fine, but not when a call comes in. I only know a call was received if they leave a voicemail at which point I get that audible notification fine.

I installed this ROM (no extras, base theme) per GLD's HOWTO on the elite site. Install went great, but the no ring issue is going to force me back to Bugless for now which is unfortunate since I liked past versions of PE.

EDIT: Ignore this post for now. I changed my ringtone and just called myself to test and it appears to be working for the time being. Maybe I'm just tone deaf.

I can do it myself through other means, though, but just thought I would report it.

Try resetting battery stats so its more accurate. This ROM comes with a 1100mhz kernel so you may also need to set up SetCPU profiles to help save battery life. I just flashed it last night and I have been trying to test the battery time without SetCPU profiles. One thing is for sure... this thing is SUPER FAST and smooth as silk so far.

That's what I did...through the market.

The new LP transitions are pretty nice.

What's different about the GB keyboard in this rom? It seems better, somehow, can't explain it. Also, is it just me or is the battery icon larger now, i seem to actually be able to read the batt % now. GREAT ROM!!!!
