    I have had the same problem before. I found that if I tried to update too many apps at once it did that. Try and update only a couple at a time also try cache mate for root users to free up more memory. Good luck.

    I have only been attempting to update one at a time. I tried cachemate, but still no luck. Any other thoughts or suggestions please. Thanks.

    If I didn't know better I think your working on the bionic the way your teasing us with this update

    He was likely planning on coding the fixes that night and then got really busy. Happens to me every once and a while when I say that I will be releasing a new sourcemod plugin that I was panning to write the next day only to then be delayed a week or two.

    Dew has been very busy. I exchanged email with him at the beginning of the week before last. There have been some boot looping issues with the next update that he's been working on. He thought that he had it nailed down , but there still could be an issue. He helped me resolve it on my phone, but today it happened again when I enabled the "Pattern Lock" on my phone after not having it enabled. The boot looping returned. So, I'm not sure what's causing it, but I do know it's kinda nerve racking to see you phone starting to come up, only to reboot and do it again, over and over.

    Dew take your time. Because of you I am still able to use my OG droid while I wait for something worth using my upgrade for. Thanks again.

    I've had this on my phone now for almost a month and I'm loving it. I seem to get a bit better battery life as well. Looking forward to the next update to fix the lockscreen issue.

    Hey Dew, one bug I have noticed - very randomly and occasionally the LED text notification light will continue to blink even after I've checked my text. The only way I can get it to stop blinking is with a reset.

    Interesting, I have not had that bug although now I use a custom led notification app that works very well with the droid and this rom.

    Charity 12.7 has been my first foray into custom ROMs and I have been very impressed.

    After only about a week of use on my Droid 1 here are some of my observations relative to the stock ROM:

    Favorite Improvements
    • Far fewer Force Close events
    • Much smoother and more responsive interface across the board
    • Lock screen music player controls
    • Notification bar cleanup

    Requested Updates
    • Option to customize or disable the volume rocker behavior in screen off mode. (I listen to podcast with a separate app, when I try to adjust volume my default music app begins playing!)
    • Ability to enable/disable the volume rocker directional switching. I get the logic behind the switch, but prefer to always push one direction for Up and the other for Down, regardless of orientation.
    • Ability to customize (hide/show) icons on the notification bar. (is this possible?)

    Major Issues
    • Incoming phone call vibration sometimes (~20%) stays on after the call is answered.
    • Complete lock (unable to FC) during a phone call. Network and Audio still works, but unable to hang-up or do anything else short of remove the battery.
    • Random reboots when phone is "idle" (i.e. no foreground apps or active input)

    Dew I really appreciate the hard work you've put into this. It's a great improvement over the default ROM.

    Honestly, I loveee this ROM, it's absolutely amazing.

    My only issue is that my droid randomly shuts down.. but as of now, that's the only issue.

    This happens to me as well, especially the call vibrations. Only way to fix is to hang up.

    Otherwise, I love this rom... thanks!

    hey dew, i just want to thank you. VERY awesome ROM.

    one little issue i saw (i saw this with the froyo release a long time ago too) was that when i view an image from my gallery using landscape mode, and i try to Share the picture, i can't scroll up and down to select the appropriate app to share with. i have a decent list of apps in that share section so i can't even view the ones up top unless i rotate my phone to portrait mode. only then can i see the whole list.

    please let me know if this is an issue that only i am encountering. thanks!

    When my phone slides open in my pocket and i try n turn on my phone it doesnt turn on. I have to long hold it for it to power on again. I dont know why it always does that. But even when its not in my pocket it still happens. Other than that the ROM is great. Great speed n the best battery life i've had.

    Oh, I sure hope there is one more update coming out. I'm trying to hold out for the Prime, whenever that will be. Thanks for all of the work so far Dew and hopefully you haven't forgotten us for the Bionic. Awesome ROM!

    Does this ROM have the option to keep your phone from waking when it slides open exposing the keyboard? That's one of the major features I like about Chevys SS ROMs, but it's lagging, FCing and rebooting a LOT on me for a while, so I want to try something new now. I just need this feature on my phone because I keep it in my pocket a lot and it slides open, which wakes the phone constantly so when I pull my phone out of my pocket after an hour or two, it's killed half the battery because the display has been on the whole time :mad:.

    It does not, mine still comes on when it slides open.

    I know ROM devs like to turn off LogCat, but maybe give us a setting somewhere to optionally turn this on.. I'm a developer and I love this rom, but without being able to view /dev/log/main I'm crippled.

    Also, I see that the API level isn't specified in this rom.. I know it lists 2.3.4 in the "about phone" setting, but when i search the marketplace some things won't show because the marketplace isn't seeing the API level of the rom. I also confirm this by attaching the device to the android sdk avd and the target is listed as "unknown" for the device/rom.
