do you have google talk installed. For some reason you need google talk to download apps.

Has anyone had a problem with 0.3 and the Google maps 5.0 update? On 0.2 the new features wont work, but they do on the stock rom.

Did you flash the baseband? If so you need to boot into recovery and wipe cache.

Just got Velocity up and running but I keep getting system update message. Can I let it update? Or how do I get it to stop asking?

Let it install. Your custom recovery will block it. The update will fail, then your phone will reboot. The notification will stop.

That method that you just used drains your battery, be cool use clockworkmod. Let it update, see it disappear.

So I know I haven't been as about it as I could have been but I return with tidings of good news!! So Tridents recent Twitter posts have me buzzing with excitement. It seems that the long awaited Velocity V0.4 will tentatively be released on Christmas eve!! Also, and he must really be kicking ass lately, he announced that V0.5 will be along after that, and even better, it comes in flavors - Eclair or Froyo builds!! I've donated to the Trident Redbull Fund after the release of V0.3, you can bet your sweet ass that if V0.4 is half as bad ass as I have been hearing it will be, I'll be making another deposit to the First National Bank of Velocity Builder, I hope you'll follow in my food stamps!!

This bug has caused me hours of headache and frustration. More than I could possibly describe in a reasonable post. So for the sake of keeping this post on-topic, I'll just describe this bug in Velocity 0.3:

"mms" script. Or possibly others, mms is just the last app I removed that I later tried to reinstall.
"busybox cp /system/app/Mms.apk /sdcard/.velocity" line (under the "-rm" block)

If the ".velocity" folder doesn't exist on the SD card, it ends up copying the "Mms.apk" file to a file named ".velocity". Then when you go to restore, it checks if "/sdcard/.velocity/Mms.apk" exists, and it doesn't (.velocity is a file).

So basically it totally trashes the apps that you remove, no backup, do not pass Go, do not retain one's sanity.

I was able to restore Mms.apk by renaming .velocity to .velocity/Mms.apk then running the script (just copying the Mms.apk file and running "sync" didn't seem to fix it, hence hours of frustration). But my phone still isn't storing incoming texts. It receives them, pops up a notification with the latest message text, but the message is not stored in the database (com.android.providers.telephony), so neither Handcent nor the native Messaging app can see what was just received. So pissed off with this ROM right now. Mixed blessing, lots of good stuff, but the bad things are SO bad they're overshadowing everything... /ugh

Thanks for the work on this ROM none the less. Certainly not something I could have done myself.

I wish I knew, I check Tridents twiter page like all the time looking for some inkling of a hint to when it's coming but to no avail. Well I guess it just goes to show you how much time and effort is being put into this one. I mean look at the length of Velocity posts, the first V0.1 was one page of posts, this one is up to seven! I hope it's soon but I'd rather have it right than fast.

Oh we know, "uploading an early Christmas present" was the last update but, and this is strange, my Rom Manager isn't working or at least it says it had a problem. I wonder if that has anything to do with the delay?
