    Just flashed the aloysius v2 4.1 rom and i saw a little note at the top right corner of my screen that said invalid sd card. Now that is gone and all I have is the greeen HTC logo/wallpaper on white background after i get passed the lock screen??

    going to try rebooting.

    This rom takes awhile to boot up that screen is part of the boot. Slide the unlock button it will install be patient. I don't know much about the error message. I never got that

    I wasn't all that impressed with it. Went to my back up again of sensable. Which version is better 4.1 or the 5?

    i like 4.1 cuz of the theme. also remember, this is one of the very few roms that has the market fully opened for us. battery life seems good too and its pretty snappy.

    From Spencer_Moore via XDA forums:
    "V4.1 More of a facelift. Wipe neccesary (Sorry guys) [​IMG]. It removes LWP and OpenGl in favor of Nav. If i did this right it should fix that issue. Also includes a special treat recommended to me by a someone in the IRC whose name I forgot (sorry), but really is very cool. As always new bugs don't forget to post em. Since it's not defaulted HTC keyboard is available in this rom!

    V5 Port of Konikubs new rom 2.0.3. minor cosmetic changes and i removed live wallpapers and opengl for nav, disabled ota updates and added frameworks reboot app. Removed heroone theme and restored back to standar aloysius theme, but heroone theme should still work. Removed htc keyboard it just caused to many issues. Hope all the other bugs are fixed!"

    I'm using v5 and it seems great so far. I prefer it over v4.1.

    Yeah, you can rename them, but dont use any spaces in the name. Use underscores or something.

    Another question I just thought of space wise. Do I need to have the zip of the rom still on my sd card or can I just use the naand.

    In other words can I delete the zip of the rom and just use my naands period? Or is that zip of the rom still required? :thinking:

    You only need the naands, but they will only take you back to the state in which you saved them. You only need the original rom zip files if you want to flash them again and have a fresh install of that rom.

    I'm having a weird problem with v5. Anytime I hook my phone up to the computer the phone resets and reboots. Does this before I can select charge only or drive mount.

    Is anyone running v5 having issues with mms pic messages?
    I cannot seem to send a picture message with Handcent.
    So far the only thing I have a problem with in this ROM.

    this is a known bug in every version of this rom, you can receive mms but you can not send. This is well documented over on the XDA forum. Also this is not the only one with this problem.

    the dev (Spencer_moore) is working hard on this issue

    FWIW you can send pics from gmail to phone by sending to ##########@vzwpix.com

    just tested it sending pix to my wife and it works. I'm also running aloysius v5

    Hey guys - just flashed aloysius v5 this morning, so far so good. The only (minor) problems I'm having are

    1) People app only syncs pictures for facebook friends with first name A or B. If i manually go to the contact card to link it (and don't enter anything to search for a contact), it still only shows me names A-B.

    2) I keep getting notifications that I have new email (hotmail account), but it's always the same 3 emails. I've read them, checked them as read, but still gives it to me.

    Other than that, it's going great!

    oh also - is there any reason to have Contact and People apps? I'd prefer to get ride of one or the other, but seems like it could be something that screws up other apps...

    re #1 - try turning on facebook sync and allow it to go through one sync cycle?

    Can't remember if I tried that or not, I'll give it a try again later tonight. I'm on sense-able 2.0 right now, just trying out all my options (this is why i waited until AFTER finals week to root :D)

    Well, tried syncing my facebook account (through Settings -> Accounts & Sync -> Facebook for HTC Sense -> Sync Now), logging out and back in (in the widget, the browser, and by deleting/replacing my account through Settings). After 4 hours, all I got was MY profile picture, but no other contacts...

    I noticed when I was replacing my account though that there's the option to create a 'Facebook for HTC Sense' account as well as just a regular 'Facebook' account (Settings -> Accounts & Sync -> Add Account), but it's unresponsive when I click on it.

    Any other ideas? I like my People widget, but without the pictures, it just looks kinda lame:(

    EDIT: well, I don't know what changed, but now I have about 50% of the contact pictures synced... maybe it's just taking a REALLY loooooong time...
