    I have had this phone for going on 5 months and I hate the stock ROM on here. It came with JB already installed and I was stoked just to be let down when I actually used it. I need a really reliable ROM BC this isn't cutting it. I tried the party time 3.2 ROM and it cause my phone to not charge so if anyone could help I would appreciate it. Google has really been no help.

    Not entirely sure that the rom itself is causing the charging problem you speak of.
    This phone has had some charging issues that have been documented on this forum; most recently by member MTDude. See this thread, post 105:

    http://androidforums.com/reverb-all-things-root/798995-rom-wip-party-time-jb-3-2-a.html

    I would first try another JB rom. SB has an earlier ver. of the PartyTime rom still out there; v3.0.2, I think; see if that fixes your dilemma. If not, maybe you'd consider installing a ICS/JB hybrid. PT JellyBeanSandwich 2.4 works great on this phone. You can find these further on down Reverb All things root page.

    Edit: It's v3.0.3...my bad!! Here's the link for that one:

    Hope this helps!

    Peace,

    You also stated that your phone came O.O.T.B. (out of the box) with 4.1.2, correct? I'm not sure about an OOTB Reverb being able to "back-flash" to ICS 4.0.4...but then again; you're already rooted and have CWM, so I can't see that it would be an issue.
    If you do flash to the hybrid, you could try also flashing the [Linaro] ANI-kernel (also called ANI-kernel) in this link:

    http://androidforums.com/reverb-all...rnel-linaro-o-c-gpl-30-may-kernel-s1-1-a.html

    For me, the older version of that kernel works better & smoother on my phone when I use that rom; but be warned...these phones are proving out to have individual personalities; and while one setup may review well for some, it's been my personal experience that this is clearly not a 'one size fits all' phone...you get my drift....SO...just be ready to do some experimenting. As long as you have backups, you should be fine.

    Edit: Here's the link for the PT JBS v2.4: http://androidforums.com/reverb-all-things-root/684115-rom-wip-party-time-jellybeansandwich.html


    Have fun! (SAR-casim...:rolleyes: LOL!)

    Peace,
