No there isn't, if I remember right Mur4ik said that it's quite complicated to sort out calibration..

There should be a home selector app, press on that and choose LauncherPro.

Access to 3G/GPRS? You should be able to in all ROMs, did you set the APN up correctly?

You won't be able to get push notifications for updates through that, it's only for official versions of CyanogenMod. BUT I am working on an app that can send push notifications for ROM updates..

Hi,
I followed your guide and installed the 6.1(2.2) firmware via that Auto Open Swift installer. It installed just fine without any errors or problems. But now I noticed both my wi-fi reception and 3G/2G connection are really low(almost zero). Even putting the phone next to my router doesn't help. It worked really great with 2.1 but now it doesn't work at all.

If you have titanium backup you can freeze your other keyboards that it keeps returning to. I currently run both swiftkeyX and touchpal. The android keyboard, and the LG IME are both frozen and I don't have any issues.

Someone please help! I installed cyanogen mod and updated my Anroid to 2.2.1 version. I can surf through my browser when I connect to wi-fi hot spot but I can't create google account and download apps from the market. I only need astro file manager so it is pretty urgent. Is there any way to install apps to my phone beside Market? Thanks in advance

Hello

I installed Cyanogen in october, i've had some serious issues after that.

The USB cable when connected to the PC doesnt work,i cant add files to the phone

Alot of apps dont work or they just crash witch irritates me ALOT.

the phone freezes time to time for no reason when im just browsing about.

The Phone reboots itself everyday atleast once.

The Battery drains quicker than the original version.

I can go on, but i think i've proven my point

The worst of it, is that i dont have the backup fails, witch i SWARE to god i did, but i cant find it on the PC folder witch i placed all my programs i used to install swift.

What am i supose to do now?Its really pissing me off. I could use all the help

You're running a really old ROM here, install Android 2.3/CyanogenMod 7: [UPDATED 28/12 - NEW INSTALLER] CyanogenMod 7/Android 2.3.4 Is avaliable for GT540!
