Hey GT, do you have the link to the google now app that is in your ROM? the voice seemed to work for me on v2 but now on v3 it's not working. Is this the offline version or the online version?

I don't have the link anymore. I got it somewhere on XDA. Samurai v3 has the same Gnow as all ICS roms since there is only one version of Gnow for ICS in online and offline. I used online version since it has the most features which I've been using since Icy spirit rom.

Voice talk back stopped working for everyone after certain google updates, not just you. For me it stopped before I even made Samurai and was still on katana. Voice talk back will never work again on ICS.

The only way Google now will work on our spirit is to flash cm10 and that's not so much fully functional..... so there's that.

Just like to note that Google now does work on all spirit roms. It just doesn't talk back. I tried CM10 last night and it was the same result for me. PG also said it's not talking back to him either.

The only fix I was able to find was for the official google now. And yes official versions of google now have had talk back issues in some cases, not all.

I'm pretty sure that on JB4.2/4.3 and KK4.4 it should work just fine. When I recieve my JB4.3 update that's the first thing I'm checking lol.

I used ROM manager and put the zip folder there and the phone reboots but comes up with the same old ROM, not the samurai. I've done this twice

I don't use rom manager since I prefer the manual way. Here's a simple guide which is also the only way you're truly gonna learn to flash all sorts of things on any phone...
  1. (optional) Backup apps, call logs, and messages with Titanium
  2. Place rom zip in SD or external SD (preferably external SD)
  3. Install Quick Boot app and use it to boot into recovery
  4. Once in recovery, do a backup
  5. Wipe data/factory reset
  6. Wipe cache
  7. Advanced - Wipe dalvik cache
  8. Install zip from SD or external SD
  9. First boot takes a couple minutes (don't panic) this is normal on first boot to rebuild dalvik cache.
  10. (optional) Once the rom is installed you can restore apps, call log, and messages that you backed up with titanium.
This guide is assuming you have flashed PG's recovery zip called "Spirit-CWMT.zip" found Here.

Note:
You can also watch youtube videos from people flashing roms to different phones so that you can at least get familiar with the process.

Well I gotta go so I'll leave it up to someone else if you need more help.

Good luck.

You should make a revised version for official recovery though lol.
Don't change the guide in your link though since Icy has 2nd-init.

PG's AIO root & recovery also installs official recovery in windows, mac, or linux (great for noobs). In case you make that guide for official.

He says it installs 2nd-init because he only updated the package, but not the post. It installs official though.

Default Bluetooth

Does Bluetooth work? I just bought a Bluetooth game pad and it doesn't seem to be working, wondering if it's the ROM or just the Spirit in general.

This phone has been a problem with game pads since before we had roms lol. Someone posted a way to use game pads on another thread, but that was months ago. No way I'll find that lol.

I use a bluetooth Headset for music and telephone. It works fine. I've never expected to see a request for a gamepad, but I'd point you in the direction of the settings screen - Check to ensure it's paired up and set for whatever you're using for.

EDIT:

Should have read this through. Answered from previous posts.

Yo GT, was wondering if you had planned on making a dark blue theme for Samurai like you had for Katana.

And bug report time. Only two.

1. Can't record audio. Be it in the smart voice recorder (causes error code 20) (or any other audio recording app) or the facebook voice message feature (error "unable to record audio") Bit annoying since all my friends can do it, but I can't. Video in the default camcorder app and snapchat work fine though.

2. I can't seem to set ringtone to vibrate, and notification to vibrate. If I set it to silent, it's silent, and if I set it to volume, the volume levels work fine. Reboot ineffective.

Here's a quick album of the bugs. bugs - Imgur

Same problems though, volume icons not indicative of what's happening, and voice recording is working in the voice app, but not in the facebook app. Which makes it an app problem. But after a reboot, voice is broken in both places again with the same error.

Further testing shows if I try to record voice in facebook messenger, all other sound recording apps break until full phone reboot. Well. I guess that's my answer.

Default I could use some help?

I am hoping that someone has some pearls of wisdom for me.
I having been running Samurai v3 for several months. Yesterday my phone shutdown by itself. Upon starting i can read "server problem" or something else. Not sure because it happens so quickly just prior to the LG screen. However it boots okay and all phone operations are fine. But as soon as the screen times out it turns off completely.
I reloaded the Samurai zip following precisely the accepted steps. It worked fine all day till about 6pm this evening, upon using the phone, it timed out and crashed again!

Although im not 100% sure of the POSt screen my thoughts are, the issue is pre ROM loading? Meaning do you think flashing a firmware or something is the route i should take?
What are your opinions for me to attack.......

Use the unbrick guide to return your phone back to factory stock. That should fix any issues you are having with your phone.

Make sure it isn't a possible shady app you may have installed. Bad apps can cause adverse behavior like that.

Thanks Game Theory. I will try the unbrick method tomorrow, and report back.

There has been no additional apps installed in the last month.

Are you sure you're not talking about the bootloader error message that flashes right before the phone boots up? Right before the device boots up there's a bootloader error message that flashes just for a second, that may be what you're seeing.

Thx Game theory, i applied the un-brick, re rooted, flashed Samurai v3 again and it solved the crashing when going into screen saver.

There is one thing that this phone now does that it never did before tho.
When it has been off for awhile and i press the power button and unlock the device, i am immediately greeted with a small gui asking how do i want to proceed. My choices are "web browser, and Firefox", and do it once or always. If i tab back i get to my home screen. If i choose a web browser it tries to open up a web page "droidsearchappinfo/".

Does anyone have a clue how to eliminate this every time i open my phone?

Thx,

Just wipe the cashe on both Browsers
Then open the browser you want to use
When it asks again choose Aways.
Then when your sure its working
REBOOT and use root exployer to rename the old unused browsers .apk to .bak
Should work.

CHOPSHOP0,
I did what you suggested and now what happens is when i unlock the phone it automatically goes to androidresearchapp.info website.

I googled this for androids and found several others with same but no resolutions. It looks like it might be malware coming from windows OS when i connect it via usb and having usb debugging set to on.

I installed numerous apps but all return with nothing detected?
