I just downloaded and tried to update but, well boot hung. I couldnt even get logcat to tell me what was wrong.. It just hung on green android. .thinking it was a bad download, i decided to download again, twice more so after that. Both of them received the same boot hang with no logcat. Verry puzzeling. Is this working for anyone? Can you please look into it Jerry
EDIT: I know about the annimation problem btw, it wasnt that. cause then there would be logcat to view??

Just this moment finished flashing the new update (haven't even gone past the lockscreen yet to check things out). Everything went smoothly, and I was on the bootanimation screen for a total of 3 1/2 minutes before it went past there to the lock screen.

Thanks Jerry!!

something I noticed in the newest build. In Settings, under Accessibility, the option to end call using the power button is no longer there.. I always turned that setting on. Was there a problem with that setting or was it mistakenly removed?

The only difference in the update procedure was that the OV running BACKside must be placed into the recovery mode after being connected to the PC via USB--instead of being powered OFF when running the stock ROM. QPST was able to recognize my OV and wrote the new PRL as before when I was unrooted and stocked. HTH...

same here, frozen bootanimation for 3-4 minutes, then the lock screen popped up. i noticed that the IHO boot logo still indicates 7.1... good stuff tho! keep up the great work!

also, i love the update checker. it worked perfectly for me.

I live in a pretty small town too, but my house is basically in the middle of two phone towers on opposite sides of town, so I don't understand why i'm not getting alot better signal than I do now. One was put up recently and i'm thinking vm hasn't updated for that one, then again maybe i'm wrong...guess I'll find out lol

The boot animation issue has no effect on the rom its purely the animation not playing properly. Replaced it and no freeze. A few minutes loading initially is normal.

There may be easier way(s) to change the PRL but I just followed the guidances from that thread you'd cited earlier. Like anything new and unfamiliar, it's fairly easy after you've done it once.

As I was syncing with CM7.2 and preping for a push to get our phones officially supported, I inadvertently left out the fixed headset keylayout, so your headset key isn't working with the 1122 build. Attached is a flashable zip file that should fix the issue, sorry for the trouble.

Thanks for the update, great as usual.

Is there a way to disable the camera sounds without putting the phone into silence? The camera shutter is all garbled and sounds like the speaker is threatening to blow.

After flashing the new build, the Google Music player I downloaded is gone and replaced with the old player. What happened? Also even though it says I have 100 mb of free internal storage space, when I try to download a file past a certain size it says I have insufficient space. I'm sure when I move the dalvik cache file away the internal storage space will decrease but why is that? Why does it show a certain amount of space when you really only have much less?

I stopped including the newer Google Music since it has become a service, so you should use the Market version now for best results.

You do have that space, but the Market's space calculating algorithm includes things that make it's total larger, and so it thinks there is insufficient space. This is an issue on many phones with the newer versions of the Market (the past 3 versions I believe).

Once again, I offer TB as a solution.

Sigh but I like the new market!

Also when I move the dalvik file my space decreases dramatically. What does that mean?

Jerry, did you know anything about my previous question? I'll copy and paste: something I noticed in the newest build. In Settings, under Accessibility, the option to end call using the power button is no longer there.. I always turned that setting on. Was there a problem with that setting or was it mistakenly removed?

Getting kinda off topic here, but after i did get my prl swapped. According to opensignal maps i had 54% signal strength before the swap. I checked afterwards and it varies between 55 to 79% strength after. So far, so good methinks. Now i just need to remember to check it at work too..

Just remember what a prl swap does. There are Sprint towers everywhere, but VM only leases some of them. The PRL swap will allow you to access more of those Sprint towers. So if you are in an area with a non-VM leased Sprint tower, a PRL swap will give you better reception. However, if you are in an area that VM leases all the Sprint towers, then it won't make a bit of difference.

Im pretty sure its letting me access the tower thats south-ish of me, maybe like half a mile away. Theres another one like 2 miles away and at a lower elevation than my house that i was connecting to before i did this. So as long as my signal isnt crap at work (which is very close to the second mentioned tower so it shouldnt be any different i assume) im happy lol. Even if the only place i have improvement is at home, im gonna consider it a success then just wait it out and hope for no long term issues

I'll look into it, if it's just a matter of theming directly in the build it shouldn't be a problem. If it's a matter of porting specific functionality, it will depend on the required frameworks.

Have a link of an example app that does what you would like?

Does the latest gapps need to be flashed when you're updated to the latest build?

I just installed the 11092011 build with the latest gapps a week ago or so

Installation


---Updating from a previous BACKside-IHO build

1) Download the newest build, and GreenMachineTheme zip if you like, and place them on your sdcard

2) Boot into recovery and make a backup (imho, not optional )

3) Wipe cache and dalvik cache

4) Flash the BACKside-IHO zip file

5) Flash the GreenMachineTheme (optional)

6) Flash gapps (hopefully not necessary anymore, ymmv)

7) Reboot and enjoy
Is step 3 a 'full wipe' ?

No, a full wipe includes formatting cache, boot, system, and data.

Upgrading from a previous build only requires wiping cache and dalvik cache.

Anyone know of a cell tower map or an application that shows which Sprint towers VM has leased?

Google is your friend

The first link when searching "Sprint tower map"
Wireless Tower Locations from Sprint

I pull this out once a year:

I'm pretty sure this was covered already but I can't find it anywhere in the search. I can't send MMS. The message just gets stuck in "sending..." mode. Any fix besides using SMS pro or some other market app. I'm using the stock messaging on the latest Backside ROM.

Can anyone tell me where the setting is to lower the volume while I'm on a call? The call volume is so loud it sounds like it should be speakerphone volume. And the speakerphone volume is blaringly loud... so loud it sounds like the phone speaker will pop and break.

I also tried the Call Volume in the Quicksettings app and turned it all the way down and it didn't change the call volume or speakerphone volume at all.

Edit: not sure if it makes a difference, but like MacFett I had to disable the camera click sound because it was so loud that it sounded like the speaker would break.

The buttons are on the side of the phone. There is a bug in the rom where even though the volume shows its at the lowest it is actually at the highest. Whenever I make or receive a call, I press the volume up button, then the volume down button. This will correctly change the call volume to the lowest setting.

Sucks having to do it every time but it isn't really a big deal. Try it out.

Thanks, pressing the volume up and then down key did indeed lower the volume.

I hope this can be fixed soon.

I asked Jerry about this earlier in this thread. IIRC, he said it is a problem with the cyanogenmod port and he does not like to mess with the actual phone script.

In other words, a fix is not in the works.

I've learned to just do the volume trick. Doesn't bug me anymore.

Unfortunately I may have to either revert back to a previous build or switch roms.

FYI, I began using backside mid october and I've had this problem with every build. I think it's a problem that has always existed.

Any Iho will have the same issue they are all cm7 based and cm7 is where the problem is not in the rom itself. The only other option is go back to froyo

Hey Jerry, I've been very buisy lately. Sorry I havent been on here to work on anything all. Well, I have my OV still but I bought a HTC Wildfire S. and might i say, its so easy to root and S-off it is worth it. Im bout the only dev for it, so im on my own. And im ambitious, im porting ICS to it lol. Well, i found this. The ported apk for activation on gingerbread i think, someone can try. I still have my V but no time to test im always testing on my Wildfire. Its in the wildfire stock, which ships with gingerbread. any way to upload it here?

Cool No bloatware please

This ROM is great however with all the Bloatware the bat life sucks balls LOL. I am using Reborn ROM with the Bumblebee Kernel and my bat life is 1% drain every 3 hours "just power on, no talk". I have tried this ROM and my bat is about 5% drain per 1 hour. Also everything works on Reborn including the new market unlike a lot of the other froyo Roms. Don't get me wrong, this is a beautifull ROM it is just a bat pig!!! I would be happy with 1% per hour but 5% per hour just does not cut it when when your phone is doing nothing more then just being powered on. Anyway, please remove the Bloatware and fix the power button so it does not kill a call when you press it to kill the screen to save bat power. I know you can remap the keys and I have but it would be nice if you didn't have to, I tried all the options to fix this but it is for sure a bug and a key remap is the only fix...

Reborn ROM is a hacked down version of the stock Froyo VirginMobile OS. It was designed for maximum battery life, among other things.

CyanogenMod is a hacked up version of Gingerbread. It is not designed for maximum battery life, but instead for maximum options. There is a bloatware removal file available on the wiki, and you can follow the barebones cyanogenmod link I posted in the OP if you would like to trim it down even more.

If you don't want/need the extras that CM offers, feel free to stick with Reborn, it's a fine ROM itself! If you think you can squeeze more battery life out of CM7, submit your changes via gerrit.
