interesting...not sure what that means.
edgees reported the same issue with the mc3 leak.
Mike, did you have the 4.2 mms installed with #2?
I had the same issue right now . I had to restore my phone to the backup I had I think its not compatible with #2
Might need to flash after a fresh install...anyone wanna try?
Okay im stock and rooted . I flash the zip and it seems like it deletes the messegin files for some reasons. I still have the icon but it says app not installed ... /:
Im goin to try installing metropolis 1.5 nd see if it works
weird....i just did a fresh install of #2 including a data wipe.
after it booted i flashed the mod and it worked fine for me.
i didnt wipe dalvic and cache after installing the mod.
maybe thats killing it?
That is just weird I dont know whats happening. Let me try installin #2 again but let mw download the latest version . Il post back with my result
Im actually doin a wipe data and dalvid b4 I flash ?. You think thats whats killi g it ?.
its possible...or more likely it needs to be installed after a data wipe. possible that existing data from the mms you had didnt play nice with the mod. wiping data cleans the slate for the mod.
Two Mod versions available!!!!
One version DISABLES long texts to MMS conversion!!
The other version leaves long text to MMS conversion ENABLED!!
Results vary when flashing this mod OVER your current rom, depending on the rom.
For best results, flash the mod after a factory reset and fresh rom install. I've been able to flash it to #2 rom in this way. Id like someone else to confirm this if possible.
I'm thinking that app data may be the issue here and wiping data, either by factory resetting or by clearing Secmms.apk data and cache with an application manager, then flashing the mod, might avoid this. Id really appreciate it if someone tried this as well.
Lastly if someone can test out the new version...that would be great!
I just did a fresh install of #2 and im still gettin the same problem. Idk why . Goodthing I made a copy of my old messaging app. Lol.. this sucks. I really wanted this mod.
Same here specially the new mod since I rather have the long text
Okay... sorry about the delay guys. My SECOND Biostar motherboard fried last night. (stay away from their AM3 socket MBs if you build your own too)
Update on my testing so far;
Since I had all my ROMs stored on the computer that fried last night (SATA drives), I had to pull out the old backup machine (IDE drives) to get back on line until my new machine gets another MB... anywho,
I tested this mod on Metropolis 1.1.0 and 1.2.0 - both worked fine.
Tested on LD's first version on #2 - it worked, but not on any of the later versions.
Oddly enough, even on Metropolis 1.2.0, after a while the SecMms.apk would just disappear. (???) I suspected my phone, because it's been loosing root sometimes after rebooting - SuperSU looses it's Binary, and can't update (and it's happening randomly - no rhyme or reason)... I seem to be plagued with bugs in just about every electronic device I own. lol
Maybe it's time to save all the data on it, completely wipe everything and start over fresh. Apparently, just wiping System, Factory Reset, Cache and Dalvik between ROMs aren't enough. lol
BTW - has anyone noticed any issues with TWRP 22.214.171.124 in regards to dirty/incomplete wipes?
I'm going to play around with it for a bit longer and get back to you guys.
Biostar has been notoriously bad with am3. Great with others though. Very budget friendly. Got my 2500k up to 4.5 with no issues. Board only cost me 30 when I bought it 2 years ago.
Also TWRP has been updated. If you have goo manager just flash the newest. I did it this morning and I believe it was 2.5.
this is usful glad i was able to test lol=p
I tested it on hyperdrive ROM last night and my SecMMS.apk disapperared too, I tried installing it manually and I just couldn't get it to work. I might go back to metropolis to try it. By the way isn't TWRP latest version on 2.5? Or something like that? On some ROMs after I flash it tells me to fix my su binaries
It was an A780L3C ver.7.0
Biggest POS I've ever used.
I'm updating it now... weird thing is, SuperSU only does this after I reboot, and not always - it's completely random... sometimes it'll run fine after rebooting, but then die a few minutes after boot. Earlier, I installed Superuser, and uninstalled SuperSU... so far, so good. We'll see how that goes...
I'm on weinhzners (I spelled it wrong but something like that) ROM and I tried flashing it while I flashed the ROM and it didn't work and I tried flashing it after flashing the ROM and it still doenst work
OK so you said group messaging is supported. My friends (with I phones) have a group message and I'm in it but I get each text as a 1kb MMS message from each sender. Does this alleviate it and allow me to have a group convoy wiht them?
This is mainly a response to your old post with the screenshot. On touchwiz roms mms app is called SecMms.apk so thats what you should see in your system spp folder. Check again to see if it's there it wont just be called mms
I don't believe so but you are free to test it out and report back.
Thanks, everyone, for your help testing the mods
Ok, I don't think twrp version has much to do with the issues. I'm not using the very newest (I'm on v2440) and I have yet to have a "disappearing" mms issue. But by all means, try anything.
Those having issues can also try to install by renaming their current mms apk to something like Secmms.old and pulling Secmms.apk out of the zip and place it in the system/app folder manually and fixing permissions.
I've been able to install on Metro v120 and v110 and both worked well.
I've also managed to install it on #2 v103.
Seems Metropolis plays best with the mod, perhaps because its closest to stock than other roms...maybe?
Oh, and thanks for testing the mod on other roms peeps. I appreciate your feedback
Okay... this is weird.
I wiped EVERYTHING, just as before - nothing different, and re-installed Metropolis 1.2.0 from scratch. Again.
Immediately went in, installed Superuser, uninstalled SuperSU, went back into TWRP, flashed the mms test, and now - it works.
Almost 3 hours later, still working.
I gotta wonder - is it just my phone? This doesn't make any sense...
First everything's stable, then it isn't... now it is again...
This has GOT to be my phone going nutz and not the SecMms.apk... or maybe it had something to do with SuperSU?
I'll be honest guys what's app is just killing sms and mms have you guys try it
