Long-time lurker, first time poster here. I would have started a new thread for this but I can't since I have no posts... First of all, thanks to Brian for the ROM, it's awesome; I've been running it for 2 weeks now and it's amazing.

The reason for my post is that there's an app that I really want to use, but I'm getting blocked out of it. It's called Medscape, and it's indispensable for my rotations in medical school. I get an error message every time I try to load it up saying that I need to disable my ad-blocker, but I've never once installed an ad-blocker on my phone. After further research, I've found that the app often doesn't run on rooted phones. The app worked for me for a while until the app updated about 2 months ago. I was wondering if there was any way around this, other than unrooting? I refuse to go back to stock, especially with the amazing dev team we have.

For completeness' sake, I'm running HoloS 3.2.3 with 2. 6. 35. 11-Plague+ kernel, according to my phone's software info. I downloaded and installed the HoloS 3.2.5 zip.

I believe there's a hosts file built into the rom, which does the same as if you were to use an app like ad aware or ad free. A simple solution is to install adfree and click 'revert'... It will delete that hosts file and you won't get that error anymore. If you want to reinstall the blocking of ads, use adfree to download and install the host file again. I keep the app installed for those instances where I need to allow ads.

There is another update out that is 3.2.6. i havent updated the build info in the phones software info yet but i will on my next release. and i would also do like MrB said install adfree and then revert and it will take care of the adblocker

@MrB: Thanks! That worked like a charm, Medscape is running flawlessly again. You're a lifesaver.

@Brian: Yeah I purposely installed the 3.2.5 version because of the issues you stated with MMS. The rest of my family uses iPhones and when they send out group texts they come in as MMS, and I wanted to keep getting those. I'm patiently waiting for your next update Thanks for your work.

the dev is aware that mms has a bug. You need to use a 3rd party app like GO SMS.

As far as reboots go that could be anything. Some have them some dont

So I love this ROM. I finally installed it because BP was giving me mad issues.do far only issue I noticed was a fast battery drain (even tried settings mentioned in older posts) and the previously mentioned wifi toggle status lit. One interesting fact is all aspects of my texting and picture messaging seen completely fine. just thought I would mention it. Love the ROM keep up the good work dude.
Edit: battery drain is about 1% per three minutes with gov at 1.2ghz and set to interactive bfq but only with screen on and at lowest brightness.with screen off playing Pandora getting better battery life then I ever had

After all of the glowing reviews I thought I give this one a try. I must say, it's really pretty, just the kind of theme I've been looking for (until I get ICS), however, it no longer works as a phone! I try to make a phone call and it hesitates and then goes back to the home screen without ever dialing. I'm forced to go back to one of my backups of one of the other ROMs I've tried. Oh well...

Hmm, I don't think Bluetooth was on. I'll give it a try again. Is that something that will be addressed in future editions?

The mms fix i recieved in the new themed mms.apk is not installing at the moment and i cant seem to get it to work with me. I am trying to bring you guys something new to the table all togeather. and if it works how i would like it to it will be based off the ICS leak from a couple months back. and will give us a nice looking change to our phones. Wish me luck cuz im sure im gonna be needing some.

Hey guys, I know I havn't been on here much lately didn't see a point when all my posts where getting deleted..

Not the point though

I was curious how the development of this rom was going. I read the changelog but wasn't sure if there was stuff aside from the obvious. I use 3.2.3 right now and I get shit battery life id say -1% every 3-4 minutes along with an occasional 100% to 0% in like 30 minutes.. I also get boot loops and slow mms which I know could just be the phone and the signal. Don't get me wrong here, I love the rom overall, its smooth, snappy, and looks good. Boots and battery life aside I have nothing but good things to say so is there any reason I should book up to the 3.2.6? I could care less about boot animations or battery icons.

A second question, I know this isn't right on topic but whats the deal with kernals? Any suggestions on things to check out, popcorn? myn? blitzkrieg?

All that aside, Thanks for the time you put into this thing brain medic bro keep it up yo.
