    What recovery do u have installed? what model do u have? A510c? A510e? You need to make sure u have the right cwm5 recovery. Here is a link.... http://www.mediafire.com/?d58j1nkrrqa5pcm
    After u download the file, place it on the root of your sd card and rename it PG76IMG.zip
    hard boot the phone and once on the Hboot screen it will automatically scan the file and ask if u want to update. update it and when its all finished u need to take the battery out and the sd card out and delete the PG76IMG.zip file from the sd card or rename it. Then u can hboot, after it scans your sdcard, u can go to your recovery. Hopefully this helps. If not it might be a problem with your root not sticking?

    U have to use the recovery to install the roms, download the recovery file I showed u and follow my steps. To hboot take the battery out and put it back in. Hold volume down and press the power button.

    U can try a different Rom. Find the one that works best on your phone. I would recommend the cm7 stable build. It should be fast and give u more internal space. Why are u not able to sync? I don't think its a good idea to restore your apps via your Google account, or so I've heard, but I don't backup my apps with google, so I've never had to do that. I just use the market to download all mine.

    There is a stable cm7 Rom on the xda forums that should be compatible with your phone

    U will have to check the forums at xda. I have a cdma phone so I only have a couple to choose from, but there should definitely be one for your phone with working bluetooth and dialer. Have u tried a different kernel?

    So if I get different kernels it could fix those problems ie. Dialler, blutooth, market

    Yes, a change in kernel can fix problems. If you are running cm7, make sure u have the latest gapps and flash it after you flash the rom. The dialer bug can be fixed very easily thanks to UnknownFearNG over at xda.....

    You need to have a rooted device in order to do this. Download a file manager such as ES File Explorer. Next, give it superuser permissions by going into Settings of the app and clicking Start on Root and Mount System. Accept the permissions and then go into the /system directory of the device. Next, look for the file called "build.prob" and open it with a text editor to edit it. Look through the file for the line:

    # try to disable proximity sensor in call by default
    #gsm.proximity.enable=false

    Simply delete hashtag infront of gsm and save it and reboot the device.

    Deleting the comment symbol in front of that line did NOT fix the dialer issue on my MetroPCS CDMA phone. (A510a)

    Not sure if it should fix it or notnot, but dialer is still raping my battery at 99% usage!
