I've learned to just do the volume trick. Doesn't bug me anymore.
Just to clarify this issue. It is a known issue on Gerrit, the code review system for CyanogenMod. It is unknown when it will be resolved.

Something is wrong with your phone and/or settings if you're only getting 20 hours of idle battery life. My phone will typically last 24 hours with medium to heavy usage. Days if I rarely use it. I have the stock battery and run backside cm7.

There is not any useless boat ware in this rom everything it comes with is there to make your phone better and none of it keeps running in the background and all the Google apps you choose what you want so if you're choosing to much junk that's on you. Battery life is great and comparing the two rom is rediculous seeing as they are two operating systems as Jerry said.

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.
Nice, thank you JerryScript for getting back to me so fast BTW, your ROM was the first ROM I flashed "I loved it then and I love it now". I am so glad to see you are always working and making your ROM even better. I have noticed a lot of the other ROM makers seem to just stop working on their ROMs, I am so glad you are sticking with it "Good Job". I will be switching back to your ROM later today and look forward to seeing what you come up with next.
Thanks again and keep up the great work...

Wow! Mine must have some real issues. I've had to charge it twice a day since I bought it in February. I average about 10% an hour, regardlessof which ROM I'm on. Hmmm, I might have look into that.

I have a total of 3 batteries for my phone, maybe a month or 2 ago, I would utilize all three in a 24+ hr period, with extremely heavy usage, towards the end of October, I only had to use 2 of my batteries for the same usage, and time frame, but up till recently, I last a full day, same usage and everything, on just one battery, and it lasts nearly 30 hours or so. So if that's not a lot of improvement for an UPGRADE to stock, then idk what is.. you shouldn't have to DOWNGRADE your phone to make it better.. that's just wrong.I guess what I'm tryin to say is, I'm a BACKside user till BACKside dies.... and I highly doubt that I will find any better rom, unless its also made by jerryscript.

My battery does not seem to last too long. I can get maybe 20-24 hours out of it but the display is on maybe 3 or 4 hrs total. On 3g though my battery gets slaughtered. I drove somewhere with the 3g on and my battery fell from 100-88 in about 20 minutes.

Angel Power Button

I’m curious, is there a way to keep the power button from ending a call? I use Bluetooth so the display does not turn off when I put my phone in the case. I have tried the Accessibility option with no luck, I have also tried this on my friends’ phone with Bluetooth and he has the same problem. I thought flashing a key map would fix it but that didn’t work either. If anybody has a solution please LMK, thank you…

Ah, there it is. I don't use bluetooth, and only use gps on rare occasion. Above and beyond that, I never turn any of the radios in phone off. I suppose I'm too lazy. Not a huge deal, though. I'm never more than twenty feet from an electrical source. What can I say? I'm old school nerd!

Hey, so I used to run about a 10% drain per day, but after doing a battery calibration, I have much more reasonable drain (1-2%/hour but that's if I don't touch my phone which is pretty rare).

As far as the whole thing about 3g battery problems, for me, it seems to be that whenever I have bad reception my battery takes a nosedive. Once it gets to the point that it's switching between 3g and 1x or going between 1 bar and none then there's a huge difference battery drain. I think the best option is either to turn on wifi (seems to help at least) or just turn off all radios and go into airplane mode altogether. Take a look at Battery Use in Settings-> About Phone -> Battery Use. If the biggest drops in charge level comes when your signal is bright yellow or red, then the problem is poor reception. Otherwise, I don't really know although I do see random little drops on that graphs that I can't figure out.

Anyways, I hope all of that helps.

Your still very helpful though Jerry lol. I had my CM port on my wildfire working, but nothing worked, it only booted lol. Then power outage. had to reinstall ubuntu, and am currently re-repoing CM. When i get this ported over im going to come to the OV again and try to help with ICS, then Move ICS to the WFS. Also i looket on github at CM's Ics sources. There getting ready to have an open beta. all they have is touchscreen issues to correct before they do so

I'm looking into using a different gps module, but I'm stuck on the shim, so no true progress to report yet. I've been busy this weekend with work and holiday guests, and what little time I did have I spent working on ICS.

Hi there.
Got it all installed and working and have a few quick questions.
Sorry if some of these have been taken care of already but im a noob.

1. I watch alot of netflix on wireless. With the latest of backdoor the audio and video are off in netflix. Is there a fix to this?

2. The AWD launcher is great and all but I have had my problems with it in the past and since I flashed have lost the bottom launch bar at least 4 times randomly. I have tried to find what I can do to make it do it to try to solve the problem myself. If I uninstall it will it just leave me the default gingerbread launcher?

3. I Backed up my orignial vm OS while flashing. If for any reason I decide i want to go back I should be able to flash back and unroot correct? Say if they come out with the gingerbread update and I want to try it out?

4. The voice button on the side of the phone seems non opt now that I flashed is there somthing i might be able to do to get it back?

It is a awsome OS as a noob I have fuigured out how to set my phone back to where I was with the stock rom. I had 20mb left on stock always switching out apps and now I have 130mb free to play with. I accidently purchased SetCPU then found out 10 mins later it was in the os. O well.

Any help with this would be great Thank you

O and P.S. When i plug it back into my computer i cannot get it to reconise the phone anymore is there a diffrent driver i need to install?

Not certain, I'll let someone else help with this...

I've noticed that too. Try this menu-add-launcher actions-open/close dock bar. This will give you a handy method of restoring it. Also Go Launcher works quite well too.

Yes, you can flash back. Also, you can flash the almost stock rom for the same results.

Most people don't use this, so Jerry unmapped it (listed in op) but you can use Button Remapper to restore it.

Nope, same driver. You need to toggle USB debugging.

I did not disable the Voice Search button, we cannot find the hooks due to LGE never releasing their full source, so we are left with just the option of remapping the button to other use. I personally use the long press on the search button to activate Voice Search, which gives you the same functionality as the original Voice Search button.

The hidden dock bar in ADW launcher can be configured to show in many different ways. I use gestures. I keep my status bar and the extra dock bar hidden, then enable swipe down gestures to hide/show the status bar, and swipe up gestures to hide/show the hidden dock bar.

For Netflix, do a google search on "netflix xda", try the various apks available, I believe they have at least one version that works well. If you need to bypass the upgrade requirements, quick timing on the back button after pressing OK works for me.

@13oilerup: I just tested MMS and SMS, and they both worked fine. Be sure you have an active 3G connection when attempting to send MMS.

Actually that longpress to bring up the voice feature does not work the way the original button did. The one you use searches online. The voice button on the side of the phone is supposed to use the Google Voice features (dialing numbers and opening menus and applications). Using the one that's on the search button, if I said "open sms" then it will search in the browser for those words instead of opening the sms application.

I too had issues with ADW and the dockbar. Normally I use LauncherPro Plus, I was searching the options in ADW to check on that transparent statusbar option Sadie was talking about (I changed nothing in the options), and when I came back out of the options the entire dockbar was just gone. I went back in to the settings and reset ADW back to default (was already on default as I normally never touch ADW) and it brought the dockbar back. Then it disappeared again right when I was looking at it. I didn't even touch my screen or any of the buttons lol. Definite bug me thinks.

It does function a bit differently, but you just have to get used to it. I just long pressed my search button, and said "Send text to jerry, this is a test" and it opened the same window the Voice button would have on the stock rom, and all I need to do was press send or cancel. Did the same with email, navigation, music, they all worked a bit differently from the stock Voice button press, but they all worked fine with this method.

I have had trouble before and I think it was due to a bad flash. When I completely wiped the phone it began to work again. I would personally try that.

I tested the Navigation app today for about 15 minutes. It found my location instantly, looked up my destination in about 20 seconds on 3g, and gave me step by step voice instructions all the way to the destination, and popped up the street view of the destination about 100 yards before I arrived there.

After reading a pastebin from someone who said navigation was crashing, I noticed that particualr person had no network access just before the usage. This leads me to believe that issues with navigation are related to network connectivity at the time you are attempting to use it.

Jerry, I was using Maps (not navigation) this weekend. It, like you said got location very fast and kept my position updated. However if I let the screen sleep when I went back in the map would be blank. I then had to hit the power button and unlock screen, once back in I'd get an FC from maps. This happened every time the screen locked. If I got it when the screen first went black but hadn't locked yet it was fine.

As far as I remember I had 3G the entire time.

Default Regarding eventual ICS rom

I assume there will be a beta When bob or Jerry finish it, so my question was:

To be a "beta tester" do you need to be experienced with that kind of stuff? Or can a regular person do it?
I'm kinda confused as to what one even does, but if you don't need any experience and you need testing done for it, then I'd be happy to help you guys out (with a quick rundown of what needs done)

Ahh, maps will allow the screen to go to sleep, navigation keeps the screen awake. I did not know it was a maps specific bug, will look into that, but that leads me to believe it is an app issue.

We test out builds ourselves, then unleash them to all you unwary victims when we feel they are stable enough. This is why you see a bug here or there on various builds (though Bob hasn't released any that I know of, some people have a gift at this stuff @Bob&Blarf).

I do not have 3G where I tried it, but I was connected to wifi. SMS worked fine but MMS wouldn't go through.
I will try where I have a 3G connection and see what happens.

MMS only works over 3G, not 1G or wifi, so MMS will not send/receive without 3G enabled.
SMS will work over 1G, so even if you have wifi on, SMS will still send/receive.

If you have both 3G and wifi connected, it will normally automatically enable the 3G connection long enough to send, then switch back to wifi. However, if another service is using the network connection over wifi at that moment, it will not close the connection and open a 3G connection till a later time.

I've tried with other apps that don't require connection, maps are on card, and it still loses signal.

But it works fine with navigation, right? If so, I'm inclined to think there is an issue with gps and screen off.

Strange, I didn't have any loss when I tested today. I tested navigation only, not maps or any other app ( it's important to narrow this down to specific app or issue).

I ran navigation through maps. Maybe it has an effect on it?
I also use the cm7 power mod to toggle gps when using and not in use. What's your CPU at when running nav?

I never toggle GPS, it's only active when used.

I keep my phone running 480/748 all the time.

All reported issues so far have been with Maps. So I'm going to have to file this one under app-related.

I've noticed the past few days that my battery life hasn't been what it was. Usually overnight the battery would drain maybe 5% or so but now it's been draining near 20-30% overnight. Also I just went out with 3g on for 20 minutes and my battery drained 10%. This is starting to get ridiculous and so I'm wondering what it is that's causing this. My battery use shows that my time without signal is 1% and as usual doesn't give a clue as to whether an app is causing this. I haven't been using an app that requires a constant connection overnight. Any help is appreciated!

Is anyone else running into issues where the data connection is being shut down when the phone is streaming data? For example, when listening to TuneIn Radio, it shuts out shortly after the screen turns off. I've looked in the Mobile Network settings and don't see anything about enabling always on data.
