Looks like I spoke too soon. The phone rebooted as I browsed the Play store and came back with the same drawing problem...

Did you try using cwm to partition the sd card? A wild solution, but it may help.

Good idea, but I just tried it several times and no dice.

This rom is still usable, but rotating the screen to redraw the windows is a bit tiresome. Does anyone else just use their phone over wifi? I doubt that has anything to do with the problem I'm encountering, but might as well toss that out there.

Are you talking launcher redraws? If you are, and you're using holo, I think it's a bug in the launcher. I disabled rotation on the launcher for that reason alone. Try another launcher with less widgets and see what happens...And if I'm way off base, I apologize. I'm late to the party haha

You should always format everything except the sd card when flashing a new rom. If youre still having problems maybe try another cpu app, i think SPZ0 mentioned this before. Also be advised there is another page for this rom where spz0 appears to be hanging out:

It's my first time experiencing it. I haven't downloaded the update zip yet but has been working fine until this weird thing happened. I wonder what may be causing it Just tried it again and still the same thing. Once It's done saving the pictures I deleted, I am finally able to save attachments

I know in linux when you delete something it usually gets stored in .thrash, if it's the same with android where can I find such folder?

Default gps issues?

Anyone else having gps wonkiness with this? Since going to OA 2.3.12, gps is no longer stable on my Vitality.

It connects okay, but doesn't maintain a lock worth a crap. Google Nav is almost useless at this point as it freaks out every 20-30 seconds while in motion. Even my squareup.com app for credit processing (which requires gps for setting the place where the transaction occurred) has to think about where it is quite often.

The gps DOES work, it just doesn't seem very stable now.

And what did you do to nerf your service over to cricket? Did you happen to run the leaked EH29 corp update utility specifically made for cricket? Cuz that would be the only way that could possibly happen. Nothing in my rom edits the amss/radio.

I assume you're talking about system select in mobile networks?
That doesnt matter. Just set it to automatic (which it should be set to by default).
my rom does not alter the radio or baseband in any way, so you were probably truly just getting 1x. Did you *228 (or whatever the prl programming number is for mpcs)?

I can't get UOT Kitchen to work with this ROM...When I flash the Theme it just gets stuck at the Boot animation and vibrates over and over. If anyone knows a way to get it working please let me know, Along with UOT File upload page settings? I'm using Samsung Admire with MetroPCS.

Further usage has me convinced that my gps issues are more google nav than the rom...however, Bluetooth doesn't remember my headset after reboots...i have to pair the device each time. Other than that, after a week of banging on it pretty hard, I'm very happy with this setup.

We'd be glad to help, but we need more info. What baseband were you running? What CWM? How did you go about flashing, did you wipe everything?

If your referring to the bar at the top with the time in then its not possible to change it in settings. I know when the rom is ready (which it is not) they will start to theme it so expect changes then.

If your referring to the notifications pull-down window, ive already lobbied spz0 on this. I understand he made some changes recently which i havent tried. Ive always preferred stock as the lines are a little mezmerising and the logo is more of a distraction that doesnt fit with the rests of the phones theme. Ive always favoured a static open android logo in the startup animation.

Hope this helps.

GPS problems are mostly related to google. I've been having the exact same problems even before the rom. Some updates fixes it, other updates brings it back

That I can believe. Last nav update settled gps out a bit, but now google nav hard locks/crashes the phone if used for more than say 10-15 minutes at a time. In the taxi I drive, it was unusable...so its back to magellan for road warrior stuff.

Unhappy

Are we certain that this has been changed to 800mhz? I have a lazy admire and I'm having the same problem at booting as i do with all the 900mhz ROM's. Please reply ASAP, i really have been wanting this ROM


*Edit
well well well, shit just got legit. so when i first flashed this ROM, it didn't occur to me that i should upgrade to 2.3.6 for a 2.3.6 ROM -____- can someone say herp derp? lol so i upgraded, got cwm, rooted the phone, got the cwm required, then flashed the ROM, first boot it stalled and didn't turn, then it rebooted itself and now, WAALAA! its on and working. time to go for the test drive

*Edit
*sigh* it appears i spoke to soon. within 2 minutes the ROM froze and wouldn't respond no matter how long i waited, or how many times i rebooted. so i flashed the voltage control to see if I could clock it to 648 or something, and it was just looping the boot animation. I'm gonna have to go back to stock until whatever problem or glitch this ROM is having is resolved, or maybe it's just my phone. bleeehhh.... can someone inform me on whether or not you can flash themes and tweaks (such as beats by dre) on the stock rom? I'm on 2.3.6, I'm rooted and have CWM

This rom works perfect for me I did find though you need to run the mms fix on the first boot of the newly flashed rom BEFORE you program using *228 if i do the fix after that it still makes no difference. I did though uninstall the Voltage Control program and replace it with Juice Defender Ultimate and instead use the CPU freq control within that and it runs much smoother I have had my phone on and unplugged for 14 hours now with moderate use today and am now at 50% battery left haven't been able to achieve this with any other rom on any other phone.

I had to get a replacement phone after I installed the zip with CWM 5.0.2.7. Can anybody tell me what went wrong? I'm dying to try this ROM but I fear that it will brick my new phone too.

I tried installing and followed all the steps perfectly, but when I boot into it, I can't get past the boot animation. It just stays frozen and vibrates a lot....the way it does when an app stops responding. I'm assuming this means that my phone can't handle the 800Mhz cpu. Anyway I can turn it down to maybe 200? I cant use an app obviously....

Well actually you don't have to be on 2.3.6 to flash a rom that's on 2.3.6. I was on 2.3.4 when i flashed this. It's nothing wrong with the rom. I know because i use it a lot. Also voltage control is already included in the rom so you don't need to flash it? What are the exact steps you're doing?

Well there's your problem. You need 5.0.2.8 to install this rom. You didn't need to get a new phone lol all you had to do was go into download mode and flash back to stock.

Your phone can handle the 800mhz cpu since the admire is automatically oc'd to 800mhz. You may be doing something wrong. List all your steps. Even though you say you're following the steps perfectly you may be doing something wrong

Thank you so much for the info. I knew that I had to flash the phone back to stock but I forgot to do a backup and then my phone was the hotspot so I couldn't even download the stock ROM.But thanks anyhow.

Edit*1 Also does somebody know where to get CWM 5.0.2.8 because spz0's link is broken.

Edit*2 Don't mind edit one the link works.

Also voltage control is already included in the rom so you don't need to flash it? What are the exact steps you're doing?

Your phone can handle the 800mhz cpu since the admire is automatically oc'd to 800mhz. You may be doing something wrong. List all your steps. Even though you say you're following the steps perfectly you may be doing something wrong
I cleared everything, flashed the kernel, rebooted into recovery, and flashed the rom.

You can use DTA2SD or Link2SD. DTA2SD works ok if you have a faster SD card. Just keep the Dalvik on the internal otherwise you'll see major slowdowns

Thanks! I went with link2sd and freed up about 40mb
I forgot CWM lets you partition the card, So I did that and made an ext in case anyone needs link2sd too

Glad it worked for ya. I use DTA2SD. Works well for me. I typically have about 60 megs free and I have about 20 apps downloaded and installed. I have a little homescreen lag here and there, but otherwise it works great.

I just setup link2sd and went from 26meg to over 136meg free. (I paritioned the 8gig sd card into a 5/3 fat32 and used the app to link.) Its like a brand new phone with shiz tons of room for applications/data/etc. With the link/2nd partition, now when I plug in usb I don't lose the apps either as the 2nd part stays mounted. 'bout as happy a camper as I can be with this Vitality now. :-D

You didnt partition it for EXT4? It runs a lot faster than FAT32. Maybe Im not reading it right though

No. I used fat32 for specific 'read-across' platforms reasons. I have several devices/OS's, a couple of which do not read ext4, so this is more for convenience and portability. I'm very happy with the performance even with fat32 at this point. (besides all the system stuff is on ext4, so there is that.)

So far after a couple of days o' bangin' on this, I wish I'd have stumbled upon this utility with my old Ascend phone. That drove me batshiz always juggling apps to keep the low space indicator at bay.

I am new to all this. I rooted on my first try, on my first android phone. I did the Monster 4. I notice on a lot of the other roms, they direct you to clear things before installing. Like the davlik, and cache. Is that a habit to do with all roms, or only if the instalation calls for it? I want to follow these directions to the t, but I don't want to mess up if clearing data and formatting is common knowledge that I don't know yet. Thanks

Nevermind, the more I read, the more I see the answer. But, I am having the problem of occasional vibrating and shutting down. Well it vibrates, then freezes, the reboots, and just has the intro repeat and vibrates the whole time until I manually shut down. It seems I have done everything as directed and it still does it. I have the Admire Metro PCS. The rom I love. I just flashed it last night and today it is pretty stable. I did the freeze vibrate on me once today, but two or 3 times it started to vibrate, and I canceled what I was doing before it frooze (thats assuming it was going to), and was good to go. Ill wait and see if it freezes anymore, but so far my steps are...

I flashed CM8, rebooted, cleared all as per the instructions on roms, flashed zip from sd card, flashed MMS fix from sd card, rebooted, updated apps. If anyone sees that I am missing anything, please let me know.

BTW, thanks for the roms and instructions. You all are very helpful. First time I have had an android (never even had an iPhone), and you all helped me to not brick my phone. THe key was reading a ton before attempting this. So I read for a month or so before I got the guts up (as I am not well off in the cash department). But all it takes is following instructions and good to go.

not sure if this fixed it, but I went into voltage and switched to 800. I did that a second time because I noticed it went back up to 900. I realized I didn't save the first time and when I rebooted, it shot back up. So I saved it this time, and so far no freezes. I hate to speak too soon, but that may have fixed my problem. it is running really, really smooth with no hiccups.

Good Afternoon, I'm somewhat of a noob and I have a question. I have been rooting my phones for a while and this is my first time attempting to install a custom ROM. I have a rooted Admire and wanted to know if the instructions for MPCS install assume that cwm is already installed or can I just follow the instructions as written? Thanks in advance.

How are you going about installing it? I think you can extract it from the stock ROM and put it in the /System/Apps folder using Root Explorer. Make sure permissions are set correctly, reboot. You can also remap the camera button back to Muve. I think there's a tut on how to map the hard keys.

Did you try any of this??
