[Boost Mobile] Running Shinjitsu 1.5b - can't use Wi-Fi & 3G simultaneously.

    Hey everyone... I'm over here from the Android Stackexchange boards, where I posted this originally.

    I'm new to Android and new to this handset, but so far, I love it. I just rooted it and installed Shinjitsu 1.5b, and everything is perfect except for the fact that when I enable Wi-Fi, within 10 minutes I lose all 3G service - I get an X over the bars, my lock screen says "No Service", and I can't send or receive calls or texts.

    Has anyone ever had these issues? Could it be because I'm not on the latest version of Shinjitsu? (I tried installing the latest version, but it didn't seem to want to boot - it just hung on the Android logo for > 10 minutes.) It worked fine when I was on stock.

    I'd be willing to have a crack at installing the latest version of Shinjitsu, if anyone thinks that will help. Can I use Clockwork to back up my apps and preferences apart from the ROM?

    Thanks!

    This issue is a bug that has to do with the OC Kernel... try flashing this in cwm...

    check the warp all things root forum, look for the post about shinjitsu... That wifi bug is a known issue right now. You can get up to date on the thread there. You can also check out other roms, such as the Unitology ROM... Very smooth running ROM, with no wifi issues.

    You can't do wifi and 3g at the same time, on stock or any rom

    Thanks! I'll try this if all else fails!

    Thanks - I'm still finding my way around these parts.

    Can I put the Xperia launcher on Unitology? I really love the look and feel of Shinjitsu, but I'm not sure how much of that is Xperia and how much of that is custom skinning that's particular to that ROM. Can I back up only my apps with Clockwork then roll over to Unitology?

    Thank you so much.

    I'm hesitant to question you because you seem to be a pretty respected member around here... but I'm 100% positive that I've had Wi-Fi and 3G enabled at the same time on stock with no issues.

    Or wait... is 3G the actual data service from my cell provider, and is that separate from my actual ability to make calls and send texts?

    Thank you all so much for your advice and assistance... you certainly are a friendly and welcoming bunch!

    EDIT: I'm an idiot, Unitology comes with Xperia; is there a way to not use the font that is in the Unitology screenshots? That font would drive me out of my mind.

    If you have wifi connected then all data is sent and received through the wifi... if wifi is off then it goes through 3g... voice services (SMS and calling) go through the cellular network regardless of if you have 3g and wifi on or off

    The xperia launcher is standard on unitology so the feel is similar to that of shinjitsu as for the look it will be different if you wanna change font use the app called font installer there a bunch to choose from hope this helps

    Sure, I'll have a crack at it... are there other themes available at the moment? I really love the colors in Shinjitsu, to be honest.

    Also - do you mean 'testing' as in 'using the latest bleeding-edge releases and reporting bugs'? Just wanting to make sure that I know what I'm getting into.

    there is only one bug where the setting check marks will not stick trying to find the cause of it

    If I moved to Shinjitsu Non-OC, would I notice much of a difference in the user experience?

    How would it affect battery life? Would the phone feel as snappy and responsive? All I really use it for is web browsing (Dolphin), music (WinAmp), GMail, navigation, Facebook, and Reddit (reddit is fun).

    The non oc kernel operates at a lower frequency and is technically slower but you won't notice a difference unless your a gamer... also the lower the lower the frequency the better the battery life... the non oc kernel goes up to 1ghz and the oc kernel goes up to 1.7ghz

    Absolutely can't stand traditional gaming on a touch screen... I've got other devices that scratch that itch for me. Better battery is a feature, for me... this might actually be the best possible solution. I'll try it out and report back.

    EDIT: How do I use the non-OC kernel? Just restore as an update from Clockwork?

    Install it as a zip from the SD card

    It's been almost two hours with the non-OC kernel, and Wi-Fi and phone service are playing nice! I think that this is the setup that I'm going to stick with for now.

    Thanks so much, guys!
