I could really use some help. I love everything about this ROM except for one thing. When I open the messaging app, all my contact threads have this big ugly red triangle with a black exclamation point in the background and it bugs me to no end! How do I get rid of this? Please help somebody!

I had the same issue when I first flashed the ROM. I'm not sure what changed, but after about a week, it just sort of fixed itself.

I keep getting installation aborted (status0). Do you think the problem might be that I set SSM?

Wrong phone, nevermind, sorry.

LOL! I don't know how many of you will appreciate this, but when I saw that CTMOD 3.70 was out my first reaction was disbelief because I watch CTMOD so closely I couldn't believe I missed the release by a month. I immediately downloaded it, backed up my phone, wiped it and loaded the ROM. Half way into reloading all my apps from play store I realized I was on the CTMOD forum for TU!!!! I have an LG Marquee!! I'm just glad I didn't soft brick my phone!!! HAHAHAHA! Blood, thanks for all your dev work. You know your good when you've got people loading your ROMS without even thinking.

Default Updated

Version 3.75 Final release
Redid the Power Menu and added Hot Boot
Cleaned build.prop and init.d
Fixed MMS for Boost
Fixed wallpaper scrolling
Fixed Calendar.apk
Redid Mms.apk to fix some bugs
Redid About phone > System update to just show Update PRL and Profile
New wallpaper
New loading bar
New settings layout
New wifi icon
New boot animation
Updated Play store, File explorer, Quickpic and Xperia to newest versions
Replaced Chrome with Boat Browser
Replaced Superuser with SuperSU
Removed a couple useless apps I missed before

Themes for older versions can/will break fixes and new features.
Don't restore apps or data after flashing the rom, if you do don't report any problems you have.
If the camera fails to connect turn the flashlight off and then on, then try the camera.

This will be the last version I release for CTMod. I started this project on October 18, 2011 trying to make the lightest, fastest, most stable ROM I could and I think it is now at the point where I can call it complete.

Thank you to everyone who has donated, helped test and left feedback.

Enjoy.

If you want to make a theme just pull framework-res.apk and SystemUI.apk out of the rom and theme them.

Hi Blood,

Sounds nice that there is a final release, did this final release also fix the power/battery draining issue? I've been using stock with root for the past couple months and it has been so much better on my battery than this mod. I do enjoy the simplicity and speed of this mod and would love to use it again if the power/battery drain issue has been fixed.

Something was probably messed up for you before, CT has never had bad battery life on any phone. There's a lot of things that can cause the battery to drain fast like bad signal strength, certain apps, etc. Or you might of just had a bad flash.

Hmm I wish I knew what it was then, this happened to two Transform Ultras after installing CT, I even loaded the same apps back on the stock and both phones have been working normally. When you mean bad flash, you mean a bad install of the zip in cwm on both phones? Can you think of any other reasons as to why this could happen to two phones after properly following the instructions?

Another weird example was when CT was installed and if either of the phones were turned OFF but put to charge, the little battery symbol would not show up, instead a dim back light is noticeably only. So I would just wait until the blue LED showed up. But the reason I am mentioning this is when the charging wire is pulled out and the phone is still off, this back light would still stay on and it would kill the battery within the day! So that was the best indicator that there was something wrong with the mod because when I flashed back the stock with root, everything was back to normal.

What do you think about this?

I'm glad both of you said something, lol, at first it seemed like I was the only one with the problem. If anyone else had bad battery life, please say so, maybe Bloodawn will try to help us find a solution.

There's no battery image because I deleted them from the rom, not many people have their phones off when they charge them. And I don't know why you're screen would stay after being unplugged but turn on the phone and the problems solved.

As for anything else, none of you guys have tried 3.75 to see if you still have issues and if you do I don't know why since every other phone is fine. Since this is the final release I'm not going to be doing anything more for it except maybe releasing fixes if there's something that actually needs fixed.

Hmm, maybe because my phone died so I had to charge it while it was in the off position And.. obviously turning the phone on didn't solve the problem at the time, hence reinstalling stock with root

I'm am sure more than 3 people had this issue but didn't bother to say anything, but being the nice fellow that I am, I figured I could help you out by mentioning it so that way you would perhaps help out and who knows make a flawless mod that could garner more donations.

I asked about this issue for a while now and no one had any clue, so I figured this was an issue with CTMod so since it was never addressed, it was kept at that. Now that 3.75 has come along not too long ago and I happened to notice, I figured I'd ask if the battery problem has been solved, but since you do not know and don't seem to really want to look into it, there is one more option: I will give your final version a shot one of these days, and I will post my result, if the battery issue is still there and your final version could not address the issue, we can say for a fact that your mod ultimately has it's flaws and it would be good to warn people in your OP of this issue if they are considering your Mod. At least it works perfect for you

You know the second you plug the phone in to a charger you can turn it on even when the battery is dead =p

And none of my CT's are flawless and they never will be, they all have their own weird bugs cause each phone does shit differently. I've been doing this for over a year now and I'm tired of it, that's why it's the final release, I figured I would do it to give people something new to mess with if they get bored. Since this phone doesn't have the user base the other phones have and the people that are using the this phone are pretty much all on megatron I don't really care to look into something like battery life when everybody's phone is different.

On the prevail there's always some random person that pops in saying they installed the rom and now their phone only holds a charge for 2 hours, then some other dude posts about how his phone has been on for 3 days with medium usage, but the average users get around 1 and a half days off a charge. Each phone handles shit different and there's nothing I can do about it.

I've been doing this for over a year now and I'm tired of it, that's why it's the final release, I figured I would do it to give people something new to mess with if they get bored. Since this phone doesn't have the user base the other phones have and the people that are using the this phone are pretty much all on megatron I don't really care to look into something like battery life when everybody's phone is different.

On the prevail there's always some random person that pops in saying they installed the rom and now their phone only holds a charge for 2 hours, then some other dude posts about how his phone has been on for 3 days with medium usage, but the average users get around 1 and a half days off a charge. Each phone handles shit different and there's nothing I can do about it.
i understand man

i downloaded ur rom, installed it and it runs great. Smooth look and speed is good. I did notice a battery drain issue but it wasnt too bad for me. No service on my tu so airplane mode is on all the time. I use wifi only. I generally listen to music and browse the web and the battery issue isnt too bad. Tho i can see how others have an issue with this. So id recommend this rom to people with no service cuz it is not too bad a drain for wifi use only. Thats my opinion. Soo with that said, i love the rom and thank a bunch. Hope to see u return in the future with another great rom

If you've got a Battery Drain Issue with CtMod or any other Rom, maybe you should try Wiping Battery Stats after a full charge, then keep charging phone till after rebooting, & your phone indicater light comes on showing that you are once again fully charged. I did & I have no issues with Battery Drain.
If you don't know how to get there, go into Clockwork Mod, Advanced, Wipe Battery Stats.
I switch between Megatron & CtMod all the time & I've never had an issue!

Thanks again Bloodawn for this Rom, it is very much appreciated!

So I installed CTMod final, gotta admit it's tons smoother than the previous versions, totally a big plus. Seemed the improve the battery drain just by a percent, which got me optimistic.

Used app quarantine to freeze the system update process that kept running in the background (that I asked about before that no one could answer), and also google maps and another one of my installed apps that would keep running for no reason, that also improved the battery life a percent.

Overall, the battery problem for 3.75 final seemed only slightly better, but still definitely noticeably worse than stock, but because you've made it so smooth, I figured to try to live with it.

I've been OK for about 2-3 weeks using it, then BAM ram dump mode last night, took battery out, put it back in start it up, seemed normal, then I went to charge it before sleeping, then BAM another ram dump mode, so now it's laying on the ground with the battery out, lol.

I'm not too sure as to what causes ram dumps, but I was wondering if it could be mod related, so I'm definitely going to have to reinstall shit now because of it happening twice.

Was your phone Overclocked at all? Overclocking too high can cause a ram dump.

I was reading about that, but no I wasn't doing any overclocking. I'm wondering since blood did some modification of bobzhome's kernel, if that has any relation to it happening?

Your Welcome! The Thanks Button is on the right. It only takes a little effort to Click on it.

As for the Battery issue being "talked about several pages ago", I know! That's not the only time it was talked about! Sometimes it's hard for someone to remember where they've seen a problem or a solution, why not try to help out instead of criticize! I only posted that to help a fellow member in need! That fix should really be stickied for others that aren't aware of it. Plenty of the questions in the Transform Ultra Forum have been asked & answered repeatedly in just about every Thread there is for this phone, & there are lots of them! But it doesn't mean they can't be answered again!

Oh yeah sorry about your phone, but it's not the Rom or the Kernel. That Kernel is running in two different Roms & I haven't had or read about any complaints in either one of them. So either you have a bad app in yours, or your phone is junk. It happens!

No offense, but the point was that I asked this earlier myself on this thread and the same answer was given. As far as it being stickied, I would agree.

Anyways...From what I understand this particular kernel has been modified for ctmod 3.75 by bloodawn himself, does that mean that this new bloodawn modified version of bobzhomes kernel is being used in every single transform ultra mod already?

As far as bad apps go, do you know which particular ones are known to cause this issue?

I happen to be trying out another rom on my junk at the moment, and there seems to be no ram dump problems and the battery drain is actually 15% better.

Hope that helps anyone that is interested.

Megaton is using the same kernel as CTMOD so that rules that out. Sorry I can't answer any of your other questions.

Trueee thanks man, and you're right I just saw that in the credits for megatron as well. Ahh well, wish I could figure it out, but I guess the switch will have to do for now.

I've been using that same kernel in Ultra rom for the past week, no problems either. I've also tried it in Stock 2.3.4 & Stock 2.3.6...no problems. Sorry that I mentioned other roms in Bloodawn's thread but it just proves there's nothing wrong with the Kernel! Yes, it works with more roms. I believe Blood just "cleaned it up" (removed more CIQ from the kernel).

As far as bad apps go... read through the forums & you'll come across something, they're usually games.

Battery life is usually better with these roms if you put some color in them. Ctmod comes Blk/Wht & Megatron comes with a lil of everything. This rom I'm on now has plenty of color & I find it to use less Battery than Megatron! I'm not promoting anything, I'm just saying not every phone acts the same way! I'm glad my phone doesn't suck! Lmfao!

Every phone is different even when it's the same model doesn't mean it it will have the same affect. I've tried alot of ROMs on alot of different phones. Some get great battery life with this ROMs some with others. It's a try this basis.

Yeah, I'm seeing that too, I'm glad I'm trying a different one out and getting better results so I can be at peace finally, lol.

My bad for the rom name dropping, slipped my mind, I edited both posts out to remove em'.

Phone works great now!

The suggestion of using different themes is just a joke, right? Or has it been known to change something for the better? Because I think I read it before in some posts a while back.

No, no joke. Try for yourself! Try a regular white/black theme for a day or more & try out a theme that has plenty of color, not just a few things colored, & with a dark wallpaper for the same amount of time, you will see a difference! It works for me on every Rom! I'm not sure if I picked up that tip in these forums or at XDA.

Experimentation is key what works for you might not work for me & vice versa!

I can vouch for this too. I think it's because white is brighter and each pixel uses more power to create white. Not a lot.. but using a theme with lots of red or blue seems to help on battery life. Maybe that's why Google made lots of ICS blue.

That makes sense, nice explanation. In the case with ctmod, the default theme has mostly black (with ultra thin white lines) and that should use very little then.

Man, I remember when I used ctmod for the prevail, it made that phone so conservative on energy. I would turn off 3G when I didn't have to use it, and if I didn't receive any calls for a while, it barely used any freaken battery power. I was able to keep that thing on for days without charging (maybe a week at some point if I remember correctly), it was awesome. But sadly the prevail just gets annoying to use after a while, that's why I switched to a TU when a good deal came out.

I'll probably stick to this phone for a while then eventually get a true LTE based phone because sprint/boost is supposed to be rolling that out sometime soon.

Man Blood, you made my day bro! I was running 3.75 for the past week or so, & now I'm in awe of CTMod 3.80. You're like a frickin' Wizard or something! Lol! I'm loving it, somehow it runs even smoother than the last one, & I really liked 3.75. But this is...WoW! Thanks Again Blood!!
