    For systemUI DPI, I set it as custom to 165 and it seems to be great. It fits well and leaves room for the on-screen navigation buttons in the bottom left along with wifi and bluetooth for example.

    If not using the on-screen nav buttons, 170 looks amazing and fits just right.

    ive been running the jan 06 build since it dropped here and absolutely loving it. my appreciation goes to the devs for sure.

    i tried flashing the new jan12 build 4 or 5 times now and no matter what i get no wifi what so ever. it wont turn on, i redoenloaded the zip 3 times making sure i did get a bad flash or zip with no change.

    i tried a full wipe and clean flash a few times and i even tried flashing it over the jan 06 build but no matter what ive done wifi is broke. Wondering if anyone else is experiencing this or can think of anything that could be going wrong

    It is good to gain more screen estate by changing System DPI, (see pics in previous post). However, screen lags becomes more and more noticeable with these settings. One has to tap a few times before sceen responds. It does not bother me. Just to report.

    I didn't mean the backlighting was unreliable. I know it is and I prefer it off since I'm using the on screen buttons which I like because they show context. I could live without button back light indefinitely. What I meant was the hardware buttons will stop working until you put the phone to sleep and wake it back up again. It happens on all roms afaik. At least for me. Using the on screen buttons allows me to bypass this problem and ease frustration.

    Also rotating the phone fixes the non responsiveness.

    Sorry for the confusion, I quoted the wrong post. I was reading a bunch of stuff and working on the ROM and clicked the wrong quote button.

    What's up guys? I just uploaded a new version. I overhauled a ton of stuff, I need comparison information, mainly graphics and transitions, and overall performance. Also, cause it was graphics related, I need to know if it fixed or broke any games or stuff like that. Now that I have things in order, I am planning to start over from scratch, and try to refine it as much as possible. Let me know how it goes.

    On the Jan6 built, when System default DPI set to custom, incoming ring will make phone FC, unfortunately. I am now set it back to Stock DPI (Phone)

    Hadn't been getting notification sounds the past few days because I had set my phone on silent during a shower and forgotten to set it back. The reason this was an issue is because unlike most other roms, when the phone is set to silent or vibrate there is a status bar icon indicating this but there wasn't in this rom, so I didn't realize it was still on silent. :(

    I'm no longer on silent but if the silent/vibrate icon thing is something that can be fixed then I wanted to make you aware of it.

    Almost all FC's can be fixed for each individual app, so if the phone force closes go in Paranoid Settings>List of apps and just set the dpi to phone for that app and the ui doesn't matter.

    Thanks, I noticed a couple notifications that don't pop up, but now i can't remember what they were, that is why I need you guys, I appreciate the feedback. The interface is very different so it is hard to pin point where everything is, I'll see what I can do.


    Edit: Ok, it shows fine with the status bar up top, so it has to be the tablet status bar settings that are making this happen. I'll look in to it, hopefully I can find the gap issue as well.

    It's so horrible trying to find everything that's wrong with your own project. It'd be a nightmare without others to help with testing. That's why I'm reporting every problem I come across, which has been a promisingly small amount.

    Just wanted to update you on any thing's I've had issues with since I've been using it for a good, solid few days now. I'm VERY happy to report that there aren't many, you've done a stellar job with this ROM. Wow, it's pretty amazing quite honestly.

    As a precursor, I'm using your initial release still.

    On slight occasion, my bluetooth won't connect. It usually only happens when I've had the phone on for a while and am already in a call. It'll just say it's connecting but never connect. It's only happened maybe twice and a reboot fixes it right up.

    The statusbar, well particularly the panel in the bottom right, is pretty unresponsive at times. I'll hit it 4 or 5 times before it'll expand at points. Not a big issue, I honestly chalk it up to being that way because it's a tablet hybrid and possibly just not quite large enough on a phone. But I leave it set to tabletui because I love how it looks, reminds me of my tablet (obviously), and everyone who sees it is jealous. Haha. It's a good looking, unique experience to say the least.

    I run into the 'Unfortunately, Paranoid...' force-close about once a day. Not a big deal as it doesn't alter anything I'm doing ever.

    I seem to get pretty high RAM usage over time. Usually it runs in the 80% being used range. I have very few apps installed on my phone, and even have LBE Security to make sure most of them don't load in the background, not sure what causes it. I rarely use my phone for more than a call or text, both of which it does beautifully! Maybe it's got something to do with the zRam settings? I usually use those, just am never sure if it helps or hurts.

    I hope none of that comes across as me complaining, this is my daily ROM of choice and I intend for it to stay that way.. at least until your JB version gets all worked out. =) Hope any of this stuff helps!

    I've found that while I can have trouble opening the notifications menu by tap, I never have trouble opening it by swiping up. Give that a try and see if it helps your problem.

    I figure the problem is that sometimes your tap is being interpreted not as a tap but as a swipe down, thus preventing it from opening.

    for anybody that uses hulu app (the modded of course) tablet status bar (paranoid settings) I get grey bar space all the way around video stream. Phone status bar just a small grey bar on the bottom of video stream. No, changing the DPI doesn't help with hulu video size and tablet status bar.

    been using 1.6a-13JAN2013-024650 for a couple days, I have gotten my notifications. Default dpi fine by me. No issues with Wifi, few times had to airplane mode for 3g but that could of been my service area. GPS works with patients, haven't had a chance to test out bluetooth

    Not a huge hulu fan, youtube ran stellar, no problem. Streaming .avi from my own winPC using vplayer/fx work also stellar, not a glitch

    Yes. This is my daily ROM. Thanks

    Am now using Jan13. I noticed that foursquare will reboot the phone if wifi is turned off when you go to checkin. If wifi is on, it will work correctly. (This is the same behaviour as CM9). I really like this Rom. Now headphones work am using it as my daily.

    Well been using this from since it was available, and updated when it was available and have had a good experience so far, besides the couple little annoyances people have reported.

    The main problem I've had is wifi tethering. Whether I use the roms tethering settings or I've tried a few apps to tether it reboots the phone I have yet to get tethering to work at all.

    As others have stated I am definetly not complaint as this is a great from. I am impressed with the devs work all together lately. Just pointing out a bug I've got and wondering if others are having the same problems

    That does seem to help, I've had a far greater success rate that way, thanks!

    Wondering if someone can help. I've tried everything I know to fix it to no avail. The screen says to hit the "next" button, but it looks like its off screen. I've tried changing the system apps option in the paranoid settings to every DPI option but I can't get it working. Any ideas? Still loving the rom!!

    Thanks

    Turn the phone to landscape while on the setup screen.
