    Is anyone else getting random lockups with CM6? Sometimes it locks up in the camera app, sometimes it locks up in a browser, and various other apps. The only remedy is a battery pull. I LOVE CM6 but these random lockups are getting on my nerves, lol. I'll track the lockups more closely to see if I can find a pattern or something.

    Thanks.

    what home launcher are you using? the ADW that comes on it or Launcher Pro? If you are on LP, the newest version (0.7.9 i think?), there have been a lot of people complaining about it freezing. I had that problem and went back to the version prior to it and havnt had any freezing since then.

    I was having the same problem, using LP. Since then, Ive flashed over the brainfuct kernel and the problem has disappeared.

    I am using the standard launcher (AWD, is it?). I just had another lockup while using Yahoo's Fantasy Football app.

    Could you explain to me what this kernel effects? Will I lose apps and stuff? Also, does uncapped mean it can be overclocked with setcpu or something?

    Try setcpu or oc widget, screen off Min: 384-480, screen on 576-710
    Do you have JIT enabled? Maybe disable

    GPS not locking in? Try GPS Status from the market

    What date CM6 are you running, a nightly? I don't have any trouble with swiftkey

    Yep, I'm still running the same set up. JIT enabled, 768-556, compcache unchecked, surface dithering unchecked, I pushed VM Heap up to 24m.

    I go back and forth between the uncapped, BFS and stock kernels. Usually when I find a great set up, I will do a nandroid. I flash the nightlies nightly, but I can't remember the last time I had a random reboot or freeze:)

    I usually try out Dec's kernels when he releases them, but the stock kernel is getting better now;)

    VM Heap, look at this Test: How changing the max amount of memory per VM Heap can effect your ROM (Cyanogen) Ryan Olson So i looked at this and bumped it up to 24m

    Lol on wordfeud, installed the new 9/26 so I had to wipe data and lost everything. Start a new game:D:D

    Wow. I flashed this kernel, and could not be happier. No more lockups, noticeably faster (with setcpu at 710), and seemingly better battery life.

    Thanks a lot!

    Glad you found something that works with the lock screen and battery life:)

    Don't think there is a big disadvantage anymore, gps works fine now. Just make if you flash a BFS kernel, uncheck JIT, check compcache. Might not get the high linpack scores but quadrant will still be there;)

    The latest stables are good too, I think in general each kernel Dec puts out is better than the last.

    Good thing also is the stock kernel is running great too:D

    The only difference that I see on my phone is that the BFS kernels do NOT like JIT, after a while the phone begins to lag a little, not a lot, but I can see a difference.

    Enabling compcache for the stable and BFS kernels is recommended;)

    Will I lose anything by installing this? Same goes for the kernal in the previous post. I've never flashed a new ROM after initally rooting and installing CM6, so I'm still very green.

    This is the 9/18 stable of the CM6, you will have to flash the gapps directly after flashing the rom. Found here TeamDouche Mirror System Download and flash only the 9/30 MDPI gapps.

    As far as the kernel is concerned, set up your phone first with your google account and downloads from the market;)

    Then after you have set everything up, make a nandroid of your phone;) Download a kernel(recommend the most recent stable), boot into recovery, wipe Davlik cache and cache, flash the kernel, then reboot phone

    So I'll lose all the data I have in there now? Apps etc? I already have CM6 but an older version.

    If you have CM6 on your phone now, you can flash a nightly without losing anything.

    Nandroid
    Download newest nightly
    Boot into recovery
    Wipe Davlik cache and cache
    Flash the nightly
    Reboot
