    I guess it may be fixed for one sensor and not the other? My phone has an Omnivision sensor. Is your a Samsung or Omnivision model?

    Not sure what Ral uses, but Elixir does the job for me.

    What else is borked in Ice Cold Sandwich 8.6.1? Is it stable enough to be used by someone who generally panics when one of her widgets or her dock moves to a different homescreen (Eg Mrs Presidente). She was messing about with my phone this morning and liked Jellybean so I told her I'd see what the stablest, newest OS there was for her DHD and I'd give it a flash over the weekend.

    Random FC's and the general weirdness you normally get when a ROM is in Alpha/beta, I can put up with, but I know she wouldn't be able to.

    Is Ice Cold Sandwich stable enough? The Video recording thing is ok, she rarely uses that. As long as Tune In, youtube and talk worked, she'd be happy.

    Tune In and YouTube both work for me, just battery life doesn't seem as good as it did on earlier versions of the ROM. Gonna try a JB ROM out in a couple of days. Sure I read that there's (at least) one that is stable enough to be a daily! :)

    I use my favorite tool, Root Explorer (used Explorer even before I was rooted just to take a look). Just browse to:

    /sys/android_camera/sensor

    Not much if I recall. Chrome does not work perfectly, but better than 8.5. 720p video works... but I do not think it is at 30 fps. I do not remember any other issues. Only kept the ROM for three days, but not because of any issues. I just missed Sense.

    Dl's Jelly Time. Gonna make backups and flash it tomorow.

    As for ICS 8.6.1, I've found the wifi doesn't always work (may be hardware) garbled text still appears, lag, camera is 8mp I think but small.

    Works fine for me. Only seen garbled text once - just restart the launcher. No lag now - download SuperSU to replace superuser and all is fine. Mine runs at 1380Mhz with no problems.

    Wifi signal levels look low on the bars but it always seems to work.

    Flash ROM
    Flash SuperSu
    Flash Titanium Backup

    One you have the flying Android with a cape in your drawer, how can you go wrong.

    Jellytime R7.2 is out now plus I find this to be better than any ICS rom.

    Is there anyway to get a pattern lock to only come on after the phone has been locked for X minutes.?


    Can I flash 7.2 without wiping?

    Was reading the JellyTime thread over at XDA. Seems awfully buggy from what I read. How are you guys doing?

    Jelly time is looking good.

    Google now = updated Google search.

    And it's pretty good! Gonna show off tomorow at school to all the apple fanboys / not-rooters :-D

    Anyone else not getting a location via mobile network? Keeps saying to enable Google location....

    Can I flash v7.2 without wiping?

    Some guys at XDA have reported success with dirty flashes from R7 to R7.1 to R7.2. Still, no guarantees.

    Looks like the next Blackout ICS update is at least several weeks off... Might as well pass the time with a few JellyBeans.

    What about a down animation, is there just not one there?
