    [ROM]Perception Build 5 (aka Cognadian Bacon) - xda-developers

    so i just installed it and so far so good! phone is working well, fast, and the gps is as good as its ever been! i dont care for the start up samsung screen, i liked the simple S better.... but ohh well.
    my only real complaint.... no sywpe keyboard? is there any way to install it?
    i was just getting used to it, and i kinda like it!
    this rom would seem near perfect if it had swype...
    cool fonts too!
    for those interested it scored 22** on quadrant.. i had to check! lol.. 2.3b6 got 17** that rom killed my gps.

    so any info on getting swype installed would be much appreciated!

    on the xda post under "add-ons" there's a .zip of Swype. just boot into recovery and flash it with clockwork.

    It says on the main page of the Rom that the ear piece does not work for phone calls. Not sure about the music though.

    if you download the link that says swype in the thread he made about it you can install it using rom manager, just do the install zip file just like you do to install the rom.

    and i like perception better, it seems to run faster to me. ive just been using it since last night but i do like it

    I'm not ok with a default overclock out of the box, or the use of ext2. Each alone is a whole barrel full o' Bad News.

    for perception was fast, but earpieace not working...Big deal breaker for me...i use my ear piece heavily for skipping songs and taking calls....

    Also I also think overclocking means forcing ur cpu to work something its not made for...and battery life sucked..i am sticking with Cog2.3b6

    you can remove the overclock, i did and i actually underclocked it on top of that. my battery life is vastly improved and so far seems better than cognition, the battery % hardly ever moves. but i do see the earpiece being a deal breaker for some, my earphones dont have controls on them and are very good and i dont feel like replacing them so its not a big deal to me

    ok... so after installing this rom ive noticed a H with arrows next to it instead of the G? i was doing some reading and its hspu, which is faster i guess?
    anyone know anything about this?

    Im pretty sure this is right, but hsupa is double the upload speed of 3g, the download speed is the same.

    Random critical stuff not working is one of the many reasons I stay far, far away from all these hacked ROMs. Each trades some functionality or reliability for more speed.

    wired headset not working is huge deal breaker for me. I liked Perception over all and I know i would underclock the cpu. but why to play with something which I am not sure about. also you can underclock the CPU speed in Cog also right? if the battery is main problem.

    @ Crimsonpride: What speed you put it on to?

    i dont know if you can underclock cog or not. there in an app called voltage control you can get from xda, and i have it at certain speeds to where it can run slower. i got my settings from someones post in the perception forum at xda. i had to up the 100 and 200 mhz settings slightly, instead of -125mV i took it to -100mV as my phone would go into a coma if i played music and locked the screen. all is fine now. best battery life i have ever gotten. only problem is my settings reset when i reset the phone, the guy who built the app had a way to get it to stick i havent had time to do it though
