You can upgrade it too, just google version 1.1 and get it from a reliable source.
Every time I try to install version 1.1 it would open and start crashing for some reason

Try going to those websites while connected to wifi. There is a website I used to go to while I was bored at work that won't load anymore. It works fine when I'm connected to my wifi at home though. It may be an issue with Metro and not the rom.

yes, you can use titanium back up. or a file explorer, with the file explorer you'd have to maneuver to system than apps find the apk and delete it.

To get into recovery use this free app in the link below from the play store if you have the official CWM recovery installed. The recovery is in the download section of the first post.

For the past 2 days my phone has been acting really strange. It keeps on freezing and rebooting frequently. And now it takes long to charge and if it is changing and I'm using it, it is losing charge while plugged in.

Should I re-flash Samurai ROM? What exactly should I do?

It's really hard to give you a solution since I'm not experiencing any of this. I would check the apps installed first before reflashing rom since it sounds like symptoms caused from an app stuck running in the background.

I experienced the long charge issue once and I found that it was an older version of setcpu that I had installed which also made the phone hot while charging. Once I removed setcpu, problem solved.

Other than that, I don't have anything else for ya. lol

I had cpu master pro installed, maybe that's that. It's strange because I never had any issue with the phone. And every thing I throw at it, this phone never had an issue. So I'm just going to delete some stuff to see. Thanks for the response GT.

I'm not sure but I believe GT said there is an inherent issue with exchange. I just use the Outlook app from GPS.

The CyanogenMod @mail app in this rom doesn't support exchange. When you click on manual setup if there were support you would get the exchange option, but instead you only get pop3 and imap. For exchange you would need an app that supports exchange for microsoft.

Try K-9 Mail which I believe supports exchange.

Have you tried going into settings ? Some keyboards have a bunch of stuff to mess with . Maybe you'll have to buying one that's suitable for you in the market . Most of the time there's free ones with much better graphics and settings

Hey Mario, I'm pretty sure you have tried this keyboard but it's my favorite.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cootek.smartinputv5
I have the google keyboard installed as well just to have it but pal is my main one. I have tried many keyboards from Swype, Swiftkey, etc. either they use to much memory or I'm not pleased with there functionality. Plus it has skins to pick from. They are having a big announcement on the 16. I'll see what it is.

I agree... I ended up picking up SwiftKey paid version for free on amazon's app store the other day for free... I love it because as long as you choose suggestions, it will morph the buttons to accommodate your typing style. It also has like 10 default skins, with 3 or 4 of them perfectly matching the ROM I'm using...

I removed the default keyboard with root uninstaller and then I installed Google Keyboard from the market, just because the one on the market has the option to uncheck the block offensive words option and the words or predictions do show up on it just fine!

Note:
I originally changed the 3G icon, just not the EV icon which is a different form of 3G. Didn't know Metro used same 3G(EV) as Verizon and Sprint.

Tried this ROM again after getting tired of the inability to update the gmail app with Katana, I'm experience the same problem as before, battery drain with Samurai is markedly worse and this is with the same OC kernel at 1.67. This is from a fresh install without any prior apps or anything else restored. Is my Spirit just finicky with this ROM or am I not the only one? I think I may just hop back to Katana, I really would love to be able to use the updated gmail app but so far that is the only improvement in my experience with this ROM.

Tried this ROM again after getting tired of the inability to update the gmail app with Katana, I'm experience the same problem as before, battery drain with Samurai is markedly worse and this is with the same OC kernel at 1.67. This is from a fresh install without any prior apps or anything else restored. Is my Spirit just finicky with this ROM or am I not the only one? I think I may just hop back to Katana, I really would love to be able to use the updated gmail app but so far that is the only improvement in my experience with this ROM.
sounds like your phone doesn't like custom ROMs. I haven't experienced any of those issues with GT's stuff.

I doubt it is just that "my phone doesn't like custom ROMs" when it has been (mostly) issue-free with Katana for months.

May I ask if you can update the Android keyboard or the Gmail app? Because that is my main issue that I went to Samurai, hoping to fix.

I always tell people that when custom roms are not letting them enjoy their phones, they should stick with the stock rom which works just fine. If perfection is what you're looking for, you're not gonna get it with any of the custom roms for this phone.

may be is due to overclocking ? i did find that overclocking on samurai led to a shorter battery life.

I don't over clock, nor did I flash any of the oc'd kernals.

I uninstalled the toucher app which was the cause of faster battery drain for me since that app always runs in the background to keep the feeds updated. The only thing that can cause faster battery drain on any stock based roms is any one of the apps or widgets installed. I love the toucher app, but my battery drained too fast with it installed so it had to go lol. Anyways, I suggest you guys check your apps and widgets if battery is an issue.

I just froze it with TiBU, I'll uninstall it and see if that helps. And I do use a few active widgets BW super clock, BW weather forecast and MLB at bat scoreboard, but nothing more than I was using on stock or katana. Did you use any of those oc'd kernals when you built samurai, or is the stock/samurai kernal set oc'd to boot?

Nope, samurai doesn't include an overclock kernel. OC kernel can be flashed separately.

Hey guys, I know that every phone it's not build the same, so here is my experience with Samurai ROM. I've read some talking about the battery life and on my end I think it's great, I'm a super heavy user, I use my phone all day long more than my computers or tablet and I get at least 4 hours of heavy use every 25% and that's great for me. I do have mine overclocked at the max 1742MHz must of the time, I use Antutu CPU and I have a profile setup for different situations and so far so good. Here is a pics of my morning usage.

I'm also a pretty heavy user, another sad thing at my job I've got really bad reception (I work in a kitchen) so I know at work my battery life is just straight garbage. I mean like having to charge it twice within a 8 hour period, and that's with minimal use at work.

I've kept Samurai on my phone since yesterday. I didn't disable the Toucher but I had wondered if it might have been dragging it any. At any rate, since yesterday it seems that Samurai, flashed as-is, drains more than Katana while in use. When the screen is off and the thing is set on my desk, in a pocket, etc. it is not killing itself any more than usual and can last a good long while. But doing simple things, I can literally watch the battery numbers tick down. I will try uninstalling the Toucher and see if that helps lighten the load.

Samurai rom is using Katana rom as base. Only differences are color scheme and apps installed.

Katana is using team Blackout apps and Samurai is using stock google apps along with toucher app. If both roms had the same apps installed, battery drain would be identical since they're basically the same rom aside from colors and apps.

I'm still rocking Katana v3. And have bad battery drain. However I figured out what my issue is. Battery isn't as good as it once was LoL. Bought a new battery and getting awesome battery life. . There's a tip in there somewhere.

I noticed the link for the stock inverted gallery with aosp icon was down, so I uploaded it again in case anyone needs it.

Remove your current gallery then flash this zip in recovery....
Download

Side note:
I noticed dev host sucks. Over time files start to disappear and links break even on a paid account. I guess in time I'll have to move everything back to google drive.
