    Looks like a may have updated a little too soon....Nah, loving the new phone and no network issues.

    Great job on finally getting the camera to work. Your hard work is greatly appreciated.....
    Very tempted to get the OE back out and re-root it and flash the ROM....

    Use a 3rd part app because there is no native setting for this. I use flash notifications. It uses the led flash as a notification led but there are apps that let's you use your soft keys.

    Well done Phenom, its running well and seems very stable so far. There is one thing I've noticed and that's the email bug (no visible text in the body of the email) in both the native app and Gmail. I have found K9 mail or Maildroid are good alternatives for the moment. Looking forward to a "Stable" label soon. Again, well done man.

    That's a cm9 thing. Hope that's fixed in cm10.

    Great to have the camera working! I know I mentioned this before, but WiFi shuts down when BlueTooth is started. Still can get the 3g, but streaming is someone limited. I'll see if I can get a logcat, but not sure what will be needed to debug this.

    Just tried this right now and wifi is working fine. It could be a hardware issue you are having. Is anyone else having this problem?

    Yeah I read that. There's a fix(stock mail app) by going into manage apps, clearing data then signing in again.

    Looks like the battery drain is still high. I've been running 1 hour 10 minutes now and lost 7%. Is anyone else seeing similar drain or should I try a new clean install?

    Could be a stereo BT issue on my end, I'll try my mono BT to see if WiFi goes away.

    --
    Edit: With a regular mono BT connection, it doesn't lose Wifi, but when streaming through a Stereo BT, it eventually shuts down WiFi, but continues to stream. Streaming Stereo BT with WiFi does work with the Sleipnir rom.

    Try a clean install since on my phone the battery lasts longer than with the stock rom

    What's the issue you're having with video recording?

    From what I remember when switching between the two (using a file explorer with root permissions) remove the apk from the system partition and delete the binary from system/xbin I believe, reboot and then install the market version. But Google the matter to be 100% certain.

    so...

    rom is awesome... but... still a few things that caused me to switch back to sleipnir...

    radio: i only live about 4 blocks away from the tower and i live on the top floor in the corner of my building. i'm in a major metropolitan area... right downtown. i should always have 4 bars. in cm9 it's only 2-3 and if i go outside to ground level it drops to 1-2. also. data connection seems slow and/or is dropping frequently.

    storage: followed your instructions exactly. in file manager can't see the external sd card. in system panel can't see the external sd card. when i installed total commander i could see the external sd card and manipulate the files. i thought it odd that the other two programs didn't recognize it.

    battery: battery seems to be draining fast. and charging slow. also... in cm9 battery shows 20% in phone info but 55% in batter doctor... but in sleipnir shows 40% in both places? not sure what that's about.

    apps. would like to be able to delete instead of disable apps. above mentioned superuser app issue would be an example of this.

    these are just observations/opinions and not criticisms. i think the rom is awesome. if i had time to tweak everything and do some more testing i could probably use it as my daily driver. the look and feel is awesome... it seemed like it was just as fast as other rom's i've tried. no performance issues per say. no random reboots. no crashing. no freezes. the splash screen is ftmfw...

    as i've mentioned before... i'm not a power user... so a lot of the behind the scenes performance stuff is probably lost on me... as an end user... i think it's almost there...

    thanks again...

    I've just been using Fix Permissions as a temporary solution. Keeps me from having to reboot into recovery all the time.

    this is fantastic you are like an android Jesus almost, my fav so far its actually improved my battery life strangely, speed is unbelievable, and now just about everything works. only thing ive noticed is some apps that constantly use a live connection(facebook,etc.) will force quit when switching in app tabs. livable though. great great job. *correction after recent the apps seem to be fine now, slower but working.

    I always seem to be the one to notice this, but I'm guessing you pulled an old script for the CPU frequencies, seeing as how it has the 368 to 768 jump again.
