I heard that flashing a JB Bootloader first is recommended. Is this true? Also Ive only seen them for Toro..is there any difference?

Thanks

Been flashing AOKP JB builds for weeks now - unofficials then nightlies now the first real build. I've not bothered changing my bootloader at all in that time and see no real need.

The build is rock solid and is only missing a couple of the features that made their ICS build so strong. I'm sure lockscreen targets and nav bar widgets will be on the menu soon.

I actually had random reboots on this build for some reason. Weird as this never happened before.

I have now switched to cm10. Much better, but Im sure I will be back to AOKP at some point.

Not sure. Could be any number of things (dirty flash, bad flash, different flashed kernel causing issues, gapps etc etc etc).

It also could just be the particular phone itself doesn't like the build (sorta like OCing... what min/max may work on one G-Nex may not work on another). I know for me, no matter what version of MIUI I flash I always get system UI crashes even though the majority of others don't have that issue.

As for AOKP Build 1.. it's rock solid for me.

I flashed this ROM on last night and I gotta say I have found it extremely stable. No bugs to report so far. I had JBSourcery on my nexus for a week before that and that ROM is just as stable as this one but with more customization. I love both ROMs. I'm interested to see if they will add more lock screen targets here..

I believe i'm going to stick with this build for a while. Only problem iv'e found is if you have a color preset on, and if you reboot your phone, it turns into a blue saturation. You'll then have to go set the preset on again.

Only thing that bothers me about this ROM is that after awhile it tends to lag a bit. Also gets stuck on the Google boot logo for a bit.

I think the only one of those that I'm using is the CM Setting under Color Multipliers Tuning. That's the only one that works for me... the others just completely bork the colors.

I've only experienced one issue with the build from the 29th and that's with the GPS. It searches, locates me, then continues to show up as searching on the notification dropdown. It always locates me quickly though.

Been so busy with getting plane tickets and making arrangements for company to get here, plus the SO flying in to come home this evening that I haven't had a chance to check the Bug reports to see if someone has reported this issue yet.

You dont have to delete everything with the nightlies. I wipe cache, dalvik cache, format system then flash the rom and then gapps. Good to go.

You will not lose anything since you are not wiping data.

True although it takes so long to back up (around 20 mins or so) that I only ever do it every so many flashes. It'll probably work out faster to do a clean flash and restore from TiB.

Never had a failed flash (clean or dirty) using any rom on any Android phone over the last 3 years......I've just jinxed myself, haven't I?

Use CWM 6 which features incremental backups. Backups for me take between 30 secs and 2 minutes generally, depending on how much has changed since the last one. And the more often you do them the faster they are. No reason not to any more, in my opinion.

As I and others have posted in other threads, there were a couple of bugs in the earliest releases but were swiftly fixed. Unfortunately a sticky hung around for a while with a warning about it long after it was sorted.

There are huge improvements to 5.x - two main benefits of incremental backups are that while the first backup is usual size, later ones will only increase by just a few tens of MB so you can have many more backup without having to fiddle about deleting old ones all the time, and they are also FAST meaning no reason not to do a nandroid before flashing and risking losing anything. Win-win.

I'm running ClockworkMod Touch Recovery 6.0.1.0. Personally, I think it's amazing and runs extremely smooth. Have not had a single issue with it thus far. I don't recommend installing it with rom manager though. Rom manager completely screwed up the install on mine.

Never use Rom Manager. Always fastboot flash my recoveries - less to go wrong

Might just do this tonight. Will a backup made on v5 be restorable through v6 or is it best to delete it an make another?

I think I know what I should do.

I normally use an app called FlashImageGUI to flash recoveries. I think when I installed it with Rom Manager (something I *never* download on purpose) I was running a beta of CM10 (or maybe it was MIUI) and it came installed with Rom Manager. I had to look at it of course, and dummy me decided to update the recovery with it. Never again lol.

Yeah, not sure what it's like now but Rom Manager used to have its own recovery that was installed alongside the proper one. Never really got my head around this. All it really does is automate a few steps on your phone.

Anyway, typing 'fastboot flash recovery xxxxx.img' in a dos command box has never been a big issue for me. Especially seeing as I only flash recoveries and radios perhaps every 2-3 months.

I think I know what I should do.

From memory the old nandroids aren't compatible. If something goes wrong, you'll need to flash back CWM5 in order to restore the nandroid.

First thing you do should be to make a NEW nandroid, make sure it boots (absolutely no reason it shouldn't unless you flashed something else at the same time) and then get rid of any old ones.

Then any new backups you make will be tiny and fast :-)

Yep, made a new one. Seems to take up much more space than a v5 one. I was left with half a gig after making a new backup (old one deleted) where I had around a gig left with one old backup.

Never tested it though. I've never restored a Nandroid ever but must have made 50 or so backups. It's not that difficult to start from scratch and I've never had a bad flash in 3 years of custom roms.

I use nands all the time. Right now I keep an extra nand of MIUI for when I wanna tinker with that rom for a bit. At one time I think I had 5 or 6 different JB rom nands that I was testing before I finally settled on AOKP as my daily driver. I just rename the nand with a rom name and a date so Id know which was which.

Personally, I don't recommend RM for anything at all. I normally freeze it with TiBu if I try a rom that has it preinstalled. A lot of people swear by it though.

Aye, no more nightlies. They're going to focus more on solid builds. We'll still get updates, just no nightlies.

Look on goo.im under developers and scrolling down to whitehawkx. Builds for a few phones in there. I'm running the latest Maguro version. Features power menu mod and a few bugs fixes

What do I wipe if I just want to update to the latest release from a previous release?

No wiping needed. Go back to the original post and follow the directions for a dirty flash. This just updates the rom and doesn't touch anything else (all of your apps and everything will still be there and intact).

Build 2 is out (build 22 is a typo).. but not sure what the new feature list is yet. If you figure it out before I get to it, please post and let us know what you've found!

Seems this one's a touch unstable so they're gonna follow it up with build 3 'soonish'. Something about assigning ringtones to individual contacts.

I've had 2 reboots and a battery pull in the 24hrs since I flashed but that may be because I dirty flashed (as I have done with all their JB builds/nightlies). Think I may just take the plunge and wipe next time!

Hopefully the sms quick reply mod will have been merged as well. Missing that after using it in last couple of flashes. Looks like something has been merged since build 2 that looks promising.

There's a few bugs in Build 2 causing some major issues, so Build 3 is coming soonish to fix those. Not sure if lockscreen targets will be added to that build or not. It's been in the Gerrit for some time being worked on though.

For those with a Twitter account, I highly recommend following @Romanbb, @AOKP_ROM and @Sixstringsg.

Since this build has some pretty serious bugs, I do recommend a clean flash for the next build.

Mine seems to have calmed down - 48hrs without a reboot. Wierd but a new rom often seems to be more unstable for the first few hours!

Anyway Whithawkx has just posted a new nightly on goo with the quick sms reply, enhanced calculator and clock and a few more updates. Think I'll flash this one tonight when I get in from work. I've run his builds before and they were as stable as the official builds.

Anyone here use the LED controls in AOKP?

I'm currently using LightFlow but would be happier if I could drop and app. Wondering though can AOKP do the following :

- Light up when you have no signal
- Light up when your battery is charged
- Light up when the battery is low
- Light up when you miss a call
- Different colours by contact

Can't see a way to do any of the above but I may be missing a trick

It has no issues with missed emails or text messages. Not sure why it won't light up for missed calls... I can't get those to work either. If I try to do it by contact then rom control just FCs.

I am having issues with lightflow lighting up the led while I am charging. Also my phone seems to be running hot. Anyone notice these issues?
