Not sure, I didn't delve to deep, just closed running apps but was still having the drain. I am guessing it was stuck checking location or syncing with its server.

today i did a full install of v2.0.2 that I gave a little bit of brain damage to. Custom Ringtones work and so far so does everything else.

Have you seen the other CleanRom? By newboy I think?

I'm pondering a little brain salad surgery between its apps and this base...

So I'm looking at the changelog on this version, and I don't see anything that really jumps out at me as making a big difference. I haven't Lazy Panda's yet, and it seems necessary for this ROM (since I have been reading that there are issues otherwise). So I don't care to take the time, jump through the hoops, and subject my phone to the risk (though minor), if there's nothing really wonderful in the upgrade.

Maybe I'm missing something.... Can anyone tell me what the big deal is with 2.0.2 over 1.0.0?

I flashed viper 4G 2.0.1 from 1.0 after doing a full wipe. Upon the setup I noticed that my people app took forever to load. Any app that pulled info from people also loaded slow. Sms, email, etc.
I did an ota to viper 4G 2.0.2 hoping that would fix it. It did not, and I even tried doing a full flash of 2.0.2 using twrp. Still no luck... Any advice?

try to wipe dalvic and cache and see if that helps if not see if it does it with another ROM. If it doesn't then try to do a full wipe x 3 and then install 2.0.2 see if it does it then

This rev is far more responsive and hands down better on multitasking.

S-off isn't required, just fastboot flash the stock kernel boot.img first to avoid bootloops from a kernel / rom mismatch.

Ditto on the new radios, you really need those here.

The only downside is that you lose your Apple linkify fix, as do all roms on the new base.

Go into app management and clear data from People and any apps that feed it for you such as Facebook and Twitter.

Then re-sync everything.

There's talk at XDA that the lag is caused by fragmentation in the sql database for that stuff.

They were still wondering why not everybody seemed to be affected by it though. The one person posted that the lag went away after clearing the data then restoring it back, but the lag came back...or something along those lines.

Do you notice any difference after de-Sensing?

Ah, figures. I haven't been over there today or since that last tidbit.

No changes to my rom or the tests I wanted to do, stuff came up on the site, and poof went my time, so I am still stock with Nova on top.

Thanks!

I quit using Handcent with my 3D, I was having the same and other problems then.

I think I did briefly load it on the ElTevo but still noticed the problems and that was stock unrooted.

Fwiw, if you go menu, settings, Basic tab, running mode, normal, you'll find it doesn't babble at you to use their other services.

I use the ICS theme and then instead of its wallpaper, just black. Looks pretty sharp to me.

I tried wiping cache and dalvic, but it didn't do anything. After a full wipe and re-flash of the ROM things seem to be working fine.

I've found a great solution for many things is to do a dirty flash. Clear cache and dalvik cache then flash the ROM over itself. This way you don't have to back everything up just to stay on the same ROM.

I believe so, yup just tested, it fired right up.

On another note:

I've seen quite a few random reboots, mostly at night while the phone is asleep. Notice when I get up, up time is only a few hours. Might have to back everything up and flash the full Rom outright.

I like the OTA option for the ROM, but it goes agensed my better judgement.

Hmm, why aren't people using the hotspot when they are having trouble getting wifi tethering working?

I've been having a lot of randon little bugs and glitches. Stock kernel BTW. Only optional install was Google Now.

I performed the usual dalvik and cache partition wipes, I also fixed permissions. PRL and data profile updates before wiping anything, no dice.

I downloaded the full version of 2.0.2 and I dirty flashed it. Bad idea, I know better. LOL

I had a dead phone in 6 hours, and location for my weather was showing indiana all day. Random force closures, etc. I full wiped and reflashed, going to see how it behaves tomorrow.

So I know this should go in the kernel's forum, but the traffic there seems to be light. Hoping I might get some help here.

I'm s-off on viper4g 2.0.2 and flashed the Anthrax kernel. I wiped cache and dalvik before flashing. After flashing Facebook kept stopping on me. I tried clearing Facebook's cache/data and rebooting and that seemed to stop the FCs, but now Facebook calendar can't sync. Any ideas?

Oh, btw what exactly does fixing permissions do?

Thanks!

Here's your best explanation for fixing permissions -

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.stericson.permissionfix

Viperboy has posted a few patch files and hints to combat various fc and multitasking issues, don't know if you want to check for those.

There are a number of FB / Sense complaints that go away by removing and re-entering your FB credentials.

Viperboy has posted a few patch files and hints to combat various fc and multitasking issues, don't know if you want to check for those.

There are a number of FB / Sense complaints that go away by removing and re-entering your FB credentials.
Thanks for the info.

Tried signing out and back in to FB, but it still said sync is currently experiencing problems. Tried updating FB with the same results. Any other ideas? At least I'm not getting fcs, but annoying I can't get syncing to work.

Maybe nandroid and try just stock Viper4G - if the problem goes away, could be a race condition or something in the kernel or the kernel/rom combo.

Sorry - that's all I got - try diagnostics first.

Glad to see some people posting in here again. I just signed on to see what was going on, i.e. to see if everyone had abandoned ship and moved on to a different ROM. I still haven't upgraded to the new Viper4G just because of all the possible issues that I have been reading about on here.

Any idea when this stuff is supposed to be updated or what better ROMs are available right now (with the same or better customizability options)?

The updates in general are done, but they are testing memory management adjustments. Each iteration takes several days to test.


People with different configurations report various results over time, such as lag creeping in to dialer for example. There is no single set of symptoms but they think it's in the memory management. And viperboy has shared various pieces for people to try, so it's not all a closed doors thing.

This is looking interesting from what I have read -

I use it as my daily driver with nary a hitch. Still would like the lightning speed of CM10, though.

So, I asked viperboy and Vinchenzop, and Vin said that not everyone would want #Fapple so instead of putting it in an ota, he worked it out with...

The HTC Mail app still isn't right - they're checking into it.

I grabbed the Mail from the ViperX 2.6 (international) and it appears to work correctly!

When doing this do I allow it to overwrite the existing mail.api?

O.o

Is that a swipo? Did you mean Mail.apk?

I froze mine by renaming it to Mail.apk.bak - because I hate doing nandroids when I don't have to rely on them.

Because of the name change, I had no overwrite conflict.

After all - I think I tested it all, but if I didn't, that way you can blow away the new one, rename Mail.apk.bak to just Mail.apk, clears both caches and reboot and Bob's your uncle.

Ok, this replaces their Roboto Slim and just improved readability for me by about a zillion percent.

Let's see if I can go 3 for 3

I note that we're running the ICS defaults for vm.heapsize and growth limit, appropriate for a phone with 1 GB of ram.

But we have less than a gig, as I recall, the S4 is mapping ram for i/o ports and also for the gpu.

In any case, we're all used to seeing 680 MB of ram, far less than a 3vo.

So now, I've changed my /system/build.prop like so -


# For ICS project, default 32m/48m
# 128/64 originally below
dalvik.vm.heapsize=96m
dalvik.vm.heapgrowthlimit=40m


And I am seeing two things -

One, ram now reports as 770 MB.

Two, my phone is screaming fast.

This is all very preliminary. Try at your own risk, make a nandroid backup first.

I would like to hear from anyone with lag issues willing to try this.

I'll be trying everything I can think of to stress test and will report back.

PS - tip of the topper to Wes and his report about having to kill Chrome. When I think of browsers, I think about core leaks and garbage collection, that's what gave me the idea.

I figured we had less than 70% of 1 GB ram, so a sloppy approximation of that on 64 gave me 40, and that article said the next should be double or more, so 96 sounded fair enough to me. That's how I chose my numbers, if anyone cares.
Viperboy commented that he was getting ready to post similarly and encourages people to try this.
