Just added Franco's latest nightly build 283 onto JB 2.3 I'll wait and see but folks on xda are reporting 20% increase in battery life over earlier versions.
Yesterday phone went totally dead. Should have had plenty of charge. Had to do battery pull. Came back showing 56% charge so don't know why it died.
Hmm-- outside of battery cover is discolored and shows several spots that look like burn spots. I have noticed the phone getting a little hot at times but this looks serious. Also will have to find out why data is coming back on even when I have shut it off. Don't want extra roaming charges when I visit Canada next month. I plan to turn off syncing on mail and calendar apps. Any others I should check as well? I thought if I turned off data these could not sync anyway. Something is sure turning it back on. I'll check kernel and Juice defender settings as well. Probably just turn off Juice defender while I'm there and manually sync over WiFi that week.

Gladly. I found it over at xda and it involves a change in ContactsProvider.apk. Apparently user craigacgomez made it, and there is a flashable file to backup and then replace the .apk, but there's some things that need to be done first.

- If your Facebook contacts do not show up, go to Settings > Accounts & sync
- Select the Facebook account, and uncheck and re-check "Sync Contacts" and wait 2-5 mins (pictures may take a while to appear)
And the flashable file is called "Verizon_JRO03O-FacebookSync.zip" and I have placed a copy in my collection linked in my sig.

Also, and I am speculating, that if you are doing a clean flash of this (or another JB) rom, you could flash in recovery; rom, gapps, and fix file, without having to do the steps above or maybe even be so adventurous as to just put the modified ContactsProvider.apk in the rom before flashing.

good luck

p.s. again I'm sorry if I got on your guys bad side, I'm not really that bad. Eagle, just ask listenman20 (ricky).

Unfortunately, any attempt to install it as a system app on JBS, leads to a crash.

The stock messenger app has the quick reply in the pulldown notification bar.

Had a quick question for you guys. My first attempt at a custom rom (have a Cappy w/ GB). Rooted and soft bricked, got it back finally with the help of a jig. Anyways - flashed Corn kernel to get CMD. Then I d/l and added JB Sourcery and gapps. Wiped/factory reset (didn't see an option for the delvic cache) and loaded the two zip files . It all seemed to work. Rebooted...but I was back at stock GB! What gives???

In recovery. After I had problems the first time w/ ROM manager I didn't load it back up as I read it didn't play well w/ cappy. After recovery did all it's magic, was there a different option I should have done? (like add root or something instead of me just selecting reboot system). That was the only place where I assume I buggered it up. I'll do a little more digging on my end in the meantime. Do you have a link that maps which files to flash in Odin or can I just tar the zip and use PDA to flash?
THANKS BTW

This seems to take quite a while to get past the Google screen on any reboot, I'm not sure if I like it.

Hey there, dear Devs, could you check something for me? I don't know if it's a ROM issue or a Jelly Bean issue...

Using the phone, I hit Google Now and the microphone comes right up, prompting me to say something.

BUT: Using a bluetooth headset, I hit the Google Now button and have to wait almost a minute while it's "initializing". Eventually it'll get to "speak now" but it's a whole lot faster just to type it all in. And that happens not the first time... but EVERY time.

Can someone on the team verify that this is an Android issue? And is there a workaround until Google fixes it?

Thanks!

Had a user test this out before he said it happens only on bluetooth and not just our rom.

i do not know a work around.

maybe the 4.1.2 will fix it the next releae wont be 4.1.2 but the follow up will

i have looked extensively at blue tooth and in last buile that you had same problems i actually pulled every bluetooth file form cm and put it in that rom
and you said it did the same thing so i just dont know what more i can do on bluetooth.

We will continue to look at it. but i was also pointed out that the devices get updated also so maybe there is a newer firmware for the device??

I just dont know on this one other than another user mentioned this and went to 2 other roms for me and had same delay.

it may be all the arcvp 1.3 stuff?? dont know.

if it works without delay on stock rom from verizon that would be my best guess.

do you know if it works instant on stock or any other rom?

Thanks.

nothings small if we can fix it but i have tried everything i can on these blue tooth things and just cant seem to make it do what you say it should.
as i said i just cant test it so i dont know what it would do on stock or other roms i gotta take your word for what it should do and try to go from there but everything ive tried hasn't changed anything

Loathe as I am to change ROMs, I will to test this - IF you want me to. But I suspect, greatly, that this is a JB issue and not ROM-related. If I were a betting fella, in fact, I'd lay money on it.

Let me know if you want me to nandroid JBSourcery, flash another ROM, test it, nandroid back and tell you the results.

Unfortunately, JBSourcery again was buggy for me and I've got to jump ship once again. Which is a shame because the dev team and the work they've all put into this ROM are simply stunning. Here's to hoping that Team Sourcery can sustain their quality, and more importantly, their class. Cheers!

Viper, how long after you on Rom...i got some lag and Stutter, then just wiped both cache...No problems since...Also what kernel do you run? It may be as simple as the lmk settings the dev uses.

1 - Battery remaining percentage. On the lockscreen, the battery percentage never matched my actual percentage remaining. It was always 10-15% off, or if the actual charge was below 20%, the lockscreen percentage would just read 0%. I had this same issue when I was running JBSourcery 1.0. Not a big deal to most, but it always bugs me

2 - LightFlow was not working for me on JBSourcery, nor were the built-in LED settings. LightFlow would work for a few hours, then stop working and I wouldn't be able to see the LED flash despite having an email, or text, or etc... The built in settings always had the LED flashing, whether the screen was on or off, had a notification or not. I need the LED to work so that when I'm at work, I know if it's urgent or not.

3 - Battery life. I know this one's a complaint for everyone on every ROM, but I've had better life on other ROMs. The idle drain on this was pretty ugly. Could be the kernel, I don't know, but something wasn't working.

As much as I want this ROM to work, there's a few bugs that, for lack of a better word, bug me. For the record, I was using Lean Kernel 4.4stable and with no kernel mods. I've also never dirty flashed any ROM, ever.

I hope the devs don't take this negatively as I really do like the ROM and am not trying to badmouth them or anything, just a list of things that for whatever reason weren't working for me. Hopefully only good will come from this.

Well, this _might_ be a bit OT for this thread, but I would like to address viper689 and everyone else's 'battery life' issues before I post again my feature request(s). I should almost post this in my own thread. . . .

For this phone, spend the extra $40 (or less if you can, I got it for ~ $35 on eBay) for the OEM spare battery and charger kit. I have been doing this for the last seven years with all my phones. I have always got phenomenal battery life by doing this (and on this phone I have got 48hrs on ICS roms and 36hrs on JB roms). Having a spare battery charging in a battery only charger, when the battery dies in your phone, switching it out with your fresh battery is immensely better for all your battery lives. Last point. THAT LITTLE USB PORT ON YOUR PHONE IS FOR HACKING ONLY!!! If you use it to charge your battery as well, your battery will not charge nearly as well and you WILL prematurely wear out the contacts. Just sayin' . . . and IMHO.

p.s. @viper: I'm on 2.3 and when it's all properly set up (though it does take some experimenting), I don't have any problems with the native LED and Lightflow notifications.

OK, I feel like I'm almost a broken record in this. I'm still on 2.3, haven't tried any of the 2.3.x, but haven't had any answer about the WiFi text option for % instead or in addition to -dBm.

And while I'm at it, is there any way to get any 'previews' in the fonts section? Right now I use FontInstaller, since it does offer this, so no big deal.

But I hope I'm not squeaking too much, but my WiFi % request has not been responded to in the last; what two, three, four times?

p.s. Chizzle, you look to be a Jeeper.

ok we keep track of every request. We just dont reply to every request unless we have a for certain answer. so on the % not at this time but its on our list to look at.



the fonts are all previews wait for it to populate and the font name comes up as it will look.

Not a big deal to most, but it always bugs me

2 - LightFlow was not working for me on JBSourcery, nor were the built-in LED settings. LightFlow would work for a few hours, then stop working and I wouldn't be able to see the LED flash despite having an email, or text, or etc... The built in settings always had the LED flashing, whether the screen was on or off, had a notification or not. I need the LED to work so that when I'm at work, I know if it's urgent or not.

3 - Battery life. I know this one's a complaint for everyone on every ROM, but I've had better life on other ROMs. The idle drain on this was pretty ugly. Could be the kernel, I don't know, but something wasn't working.

As much as I want this ROM to work, there's a few bugs that, for lack of a better word, bug me. For the record, I was using Lean Kernel 4.4stable and with no kernel mods. I've also never dirty flashed any ROM, ever.

I hope the devs don't take this negatively as I really do like the ROM and am not trying to badmouth them or anything, just a list of things that for whatever reason weren't working for me. Hopefully only good will come from this.
the % on lock screen wont match unless you use stock battery %.

i use the led in the rom and it works good for me.
if you install lightflow there are probably conflicts. but if you jsut leave our stuff off and use light flow people say it works. but understood.

I have great battery life on the gsm and lte phones. but it varies for people.

Thanks for trying it. have fun with whatever you use thats the object of all this.

I've been wanting to do that but on most rom/kernel combos I don't have to. Even on Sourcery, it has some of the best on screen time that I've seen. It's the idle time that seems to drain it like while I'm sleeping. Believe me I've seen much worse battery time on other roms. That was the smallest of my issues here.

I do use the stock battery.

I had LightFlow disabled when trying the native, but it just wouldn't stop flashing.

Again, I've seen much much worse battery life on other roms, so don't worry about that. Like you said, it varies

wierd i dont have the flashing on either phone.

maybe im backwards and need non stock battey in magic control for it to be close. but ive seen this before stated i havent seen it but seldom get my battery below 15%.

but it happens. on my droid i could not run cm. it rebooted, locked up got hot you name it seems some roms just dont like some phones.

as i said thanks for giving it a run. you got to go with what does what you need.

Re: the lightflow issue...I had some issues in the early going with that app but have had no issues on the last several builds. Check your settings at the Sourcery Control Panel > LED Control and make sure selected app = default. Go ahead and use the on/off settings there. ( i use on 1 sec, off 2 secs). Leave the flash led while screen on setting at off.

If you ever mess with the "selected app" option and try to make it lightflow, it gets jacked up. Just some thoughts to try keeping you in the game. Sounds like the led thing is your biggest hangup viper.

I found a fix quite a while back for the built in led app and lightflow. If u prefer to use lightflow as do I. Change the led color to black on the built in one, and ur lightflow should work as it's supposed to, with no ongoing notification.

If you recall the symptoms: BT headset will not initiate music playback until it is first done on the phone. It will then pause/play for a time, but times out after awhile and the phone must be used to control music again. Not sure if it's a Jelly Bean issue or a JBSourcery issue.

I volunteered to wipe the phone, flash a different ROM, and attempt to duplicate the problem. If it still doesn't work, it's a JB issue... if it DOES work, then there is likely something in JBSourcery's coding that is stopping that initial play command.

Attachment 40965



RESULTS:

Okay Dear Developers, Here's what I did:
  • Wiped the phone (data, system, cache, dalvik)
  • Flashed XenonHD v15 (JR003R) & Gapps
  • Installed Titanium Backup and froze Apollo so ONLY Google Play was on the phone
  • Paired the BT headset & powered it down
  • Put the phone in standby (screen off)
  • Powered up the BT headset and let it connect
  • Hit Play

And the music started right up!

So, just to REALLY check, I powered down the headset AND rebooted the phone. I wanted this thing isolated. Phone came back up, I powered up and connected the BT headset and hit play.

And the music started right up!

Sadly, that sort of proves that it's not a Jelly Bean issue, but rather something in JBSourcery. Like I've said: don't kill yourselves staying up late, trying to track this thing down and fix it... it's just a minor nuisance having to turn on the phone and hit PLAY that first time (or PAUSE after a time period I haven't measured).

But I did want to let you know that it DOES work on other ROMs.

Will the 4.1.2 update be a full rom or just a patch? Don't wanna set things up twice if it's advantageous to wait for it...

Kinfolk, this is a full ROM with 4.1.2 elements...

Wipe wipe wipe!

Question for the developers: I downloaded 4.2 and both versions of Gapps... but only the regular Gapps is showing up in the Sourcery Tools folder. Where is the inverted Gapps going? I can't find that booger anywhere!




EDIT: NVM, found it in Sourcery Tools with Root Explorer. Not sure why Astro was being so squirrelly...

Anyway, backups are done, wiping & flashing now!

No what I was asking was if the 4.1.2 rom would be a full rom or a patch? I know to wipe with full roms...
