Thanks for responding, I'll give what you said a try as soon as the phone finishes charging.

Thanks for the feedback!

Still no camera, and still can't use screen animations. Roaming indicator no longer shows up in status bar. I had a problem with the 3g connection. Worked around it by checking on international data roaming. And I hit a 1291 benchmark after playing with if for a while. Thanks again for bringing CM7 to the vortex.

Installed the latest tonight. As previously mentioned, 3G was not working by default. Solved this like the previous fella by enabling international roaming. Disabled animations, and things seem to be running smoothly. Still no camera (obviously.) No roaming indicator. (Yay!)

Hitting the home button when the screen is off seems to take longer than usual for the unlock screen to come up, but this isn't too big of a deal.

After I starting syncing with Gmail and Google Music, things started to get a little hot. I haven't seen it get this hot without wireless tethering enabled. But after syncs were finished, it seemed to cool back down without any problems. It was probably the database of 19,400 songs in my Google Music account. (But man alive, without this CM7, it took about 45 minutes to load that library. With it, it took less than ten minutes.)

Now the heat is back. Is anyone else getting massive temperatures with normal operation/charging. I'm at 104 Fahrenheit while charging. I'm not well-versed enough to know about OC changes so I'm going to leave it for now unless someone has a good idea.

I'm very impressed so far. Can't wait for more updates.

Well I'm danged if I can figure out how to unblank the phone once it blanks. I can swipe and press buttons until I pass out from exhaustion and it never comes back until I do a battery pull. Bummer!! Get that fixed and I'll be hooked!

Go into your cyanogen settings in the settings menu and once your in there go to display and unchecked screen on and screen off animations and that should fix your problem.

Yep - that seems to have fixed my problem. I KNEW there had to be a fix but I just wasn't picking up on it until I read your post prior to this. Thanks again!

...Now... if only we can figure out how to get Netflix to work properly, this ROM will be totally perfect for me!

Really, it looks like camera drivers and animation issues are the only things at the top of the list at the moment. So far. Nom' sayin? Riiiirup, Nom' Sayin?

Edit: Oh yea, and Netflix.

I resolved the Netflix issue by installing an older version. You can get it here http://getandroidstuff.com/download-netflix-apk-hacked-work-on-most-android-devices/

When you launch it, you will be prompted to download a newer version. Always cancel it.

Enjoy!

Exclamation Mobile Data Bug... Edited

Just a note on mobile data... After you flash the rom mobile data probably doesn't work. I got it to work by enabling "International data roaming" in Settings>Wireless & networks> Mobile networks. I just hope enabling that doesn't incur International data roaming charges I think it's just a bug though.

Edit: I should have read more lol.

Busted out with logcat and I'm seeing a bunch of the same error. I'll attach it just in case, idk if it will really help any. Also sometimes apps won't install in the market. & it appears there is no root access... (su binary not found)

Thanks for the logcat!
Try downloading Superuser from market and after install, hit menu > perferences. Down below superuser information, tap on Su binary...it will install/update your SU.

I was trying that last night and it wasn't working. I re-flashed everything this morning and checked, SU is working. I just wonder what caused it to quit working the first time. Let me know of any ways I can help (i.e. providing bug reports & how you'd like me to do so). I guarantee you I'm gonna test the shit outta your rom(s) ;-) I'm new to this but I'm eager to help out.

Edit:


Been playing with the rom all day now. Here are some things I've noticed.

Market Issues:
Sometimes when installing certain apps I get errors. I was trying to install Google voice search and this is what I got...

Error: Package file is invalid.

A second attempt at installing results in an insufficient space error.

Error: Error downloading "Voice Search". There is insufficient space on the device.

I know there is enough space though. I'm attaching a logcat I ran while trying to install Voice Search. There are other apps but I don't remember what they were.

Funky display glitches:
Screen randomly goofs & displays static with vertical lines running through it. Only a battery pull will get it back to normal.

Maybe it's some kind of display driver bug?

Note:
When attempting to use LCD Density to adjust the display density the device froze for a minute or two and then the display went off. When I turned it back on I got the fuzzies and lines again.

.wav files won't play:

I don't remember if the original Vortex rom played .wav files, but I definitely can't now. They may just be unsupported idk.

Did a test on stock rom and .wav files don't play so not an issue.

Alternate signal display:
I get some whacky numbers when I enable the alternate cell signal display signal text or signal text with dbm in Settings>CyanogenMod settings>Interface>Status bar tweaks>Alternate signal display

The "insufficient space" issue is a Market issue...not rom. It's happening with other phones also. To fix, move the 01mvdalvik file out of init.d, located here: /system/etc/init.d/01mvdalvik, clear market cache and data, reboot recovery, wipe cache/dalvik_cache, reboot.
The screen issues are a "Work In Progress"...the kernel is still in it early stages, it needs a lot more work. This is going to be a slow process, in that a) it's time consuming b) I have real life(job & family) c) I build for a bunch of other phones.
The audio/camera maybe a permission issue, that hopefully will get fix with the next build in a few days.
Logs that show the problems are greatly appreciated. I don't own this phone, so I need detailed feed back in order to try to fix things.
Thanks,
Bob

Is there a better way to provide you with logs? How would you go about testing & providing logs if you were doing so for another developer? I wanna provide you with the best information possible. Your rom is the first that I have actually tested and provided ANY feedback on, so I'm not sure I know how to go about doing it properly. I appreciate all the hard work that you are putting into this. I couldn't possibly imagine how hard it really is.

Man, I'm jealous! I just moved from the Vortex to an X2 and you guys now have CM7 for the vortex.

Of course, no reason for me to go back! Still, it's great to see this phone is getting some love and support. It was my first droid.

Most of time I do a logcat.
To do logcat, open 'terminal emulator', or 'adb shell' from connected PC. Then type:
su
logcat > /sdcard/log.txt

Press home (not back) button and try to reproduce the problem. When finished, go back into terminal emulator and press vol-down key then 'c' to stop logcat. Then copy the /sdcard/log.txt file to your PC. Then either post the file directly or upload to pastebin.com & copy the link to it here.

Default Mobile Data Enable/Disable

Here's a logcat I ran while Enabling/Disabling Mobile data, International roaming & National roaming. First I enabled all three then I disabled. If you want me to run a logcat while trying to run the camera I'll do so too. I noticed the logcats are a lot more detailed when running through terminal or at least they appear to be.

Enable/Disabling Mobile data


Edit:

BTW, If you leave the charger plugged in when powering off the device it goes right back on.

Also reflashing from nandroid backup seems to have stopped the screen issue I was experiencing... for now. I wiped everything before restoring from backup, including battery stats & rotate settings. Market issues quit too.

Placing phone call drops mobile data
(was not an issue... stock rom can't talk & surf either)

When placing a phone call I lose mobile data connectivity.
Is that just a limitation of the baseband/kernel? & the cell signal indicator displays no signal (Doesn't happen in stock).

Phone call log

FYI, the issue with the camera is probably the same issue that occurred when the LG Ally was being devved - Velocity being the ROM I was most familiar with. The camera software is proprietary from LG. Not sure what the devs did to get that working, but you might try contacting some of the devs on that project - Getinnowmarketing might have some info about it.

I'm really wishing the data port on my phone worked right now! Adapter for the memory card should arrive soon though, then I can help test your rom.

Do you expect the camera to be working with the new permissions?

My main goal with this release was to fix the animation, with a minor goal of fixing camera. Hopefully, both issues have been fixed!

Just flashed the 11-09-11 version.

Camera: I get "Camera Error: Cannot connect to camera."

Before disabling animations: With 11-03-11, I could get back to the lockscreen after clicking around a bit, now, I can't seem to get back in. (Pulled battery, then disabled animations.)

After disabling animations, pressing Home from standby actually brings up the lockscreen now. (Previous version just brought up black screen, requiring me to touch the screen in order to see anything.)

More testing to follow.

Download the zip file that's attached to this post, extract the build.prop file to the root of your SDcard, then use either RootExplorer or ADB to replace the build.prop file already in the /system/ folder in the phone, then change the permissions to rw-r--r-- on the new one. Once you've done that, reboot your Vortex, and you should have signal.

What You'll Notice: When you get your signal, the Roaming indicator will be stuck, but 3G and Call and Texting strength will be shown in the notification bar and they both work. That's what the "Roaming Indicator" bug BobZhome was referring to in the topic's opening post.
Yep

Go to your status bar on the top of your screen and pull it down and click where is says USB Connected. When it opens just click turn on usb storage.

The latest build is working just fine for me with the previously mentioned issues - lockscreen animations, and camera - still not working as reported and expected. I have had no other issues with anything - wifi works well, battery life continues to be good, call signal is strong, 3G works well, no market issues, no compatibility issues, no random reboots or freezes.

Keep up the fine work!

Love it so far... just like everyone else I'm hoping someone can figure out the camera soon. It's not the most important feature on my phone, but it is a bummer without it. Still, I hate the default configuration on the LG Vortex enough it may be worth it all...

Thanks for the log!
There are still a ton of "W/PackageManager( 1392): Unknown permission" in the log...can someone with the STOCK ROM, grab me the init.* files(yes, more than one-may be 3 or 4) from the root director.

The rotation issue is probably the "KR3DM" errors in the log, which relates to the gyroscope... I'll look into the AMI304 drivers.

Thank you sir. If i still had a copy of my stock rom I'd get a log from it. I have a backup of the breakneck rom if that helps. Both camera and rotation work with it.

edit: would those files from the backup help?

I would prefer the files be from a stock rom, Thanks!

I downloaded the stock rom from this post by getitnowmarketing.
Rooted 2.2.1 Update

I flashed it and then used root explorer and copied all the init files I saw in the root folder. So here you go. :3

Here's the init files from stock 2.2.2 rom.

Kappacat beat me to it by 11 mins lol ;-)

Vortex Stock Init Files

Issues I am having:

None of the sensors on the device work, with the exception of the proximity sensor (Already known). Heres a log I ran while running sensors application. I'm probably gonna upload a log from stock too. Maybe you can compare the two.

Sensors log BobZhome-CM7
Sensors log stock


Smartass is no longer selectable as a CPU governor.

Working great, aside from previously mentioned issues:

Camera error: Cannot connect to camera
No 3G data (until enabling international data roaming)
Screen won't rotate (Labyrinth, a game that relies solely on what angle the device is tilted, is also unresponsive in this manner)
Black unlock screen / on/off animation issue

I had the Market "insufficient space" issue. Uninstalling the Market update, and letting it re-update itself fixed the issue.

Google Voice "unexpectedly closed" (FC) every time I tried to run it. A re-install fixed the issue.

Overall, the phone runs much smoother. It's like an entirely different phone.
