She frequents a lot of threads. A nice person with a wealth of knowlege. I am not suprised.
So, can anyone shed any light on the issues we are having with getting stuck at the boot animation after rebooting? I've tried flashing at least 20 times with up to 10 wipes and cache clears, tried both restore options, etc... every time it boots up fine the first time, but when I try and reboot it gets stuck at the boot animation. I've asked on multiple forums and no one has an answer but there are a bunch of us having the issue.
I've tried with both 8.0 and 8.1...
Anyone care to take a stab at this?
I would be sure I was wiping/formatting data, cache, system and boot, from the partitions menu, then since the stock kernel obviously isn't working, I'd try another kernal, first a medium/standard voltage Chevy or Slayher, then a high voltage.
Yup, tried all of those. Even a new kernel. Nothing seems to work. Let me reiterate that it boots up fine and runs great after the initial flash. But when you try and reboot after that it freezes and won't boot past the boot animation. Very strange. I'm really at a loss. I'd love to get off CM6 but can't get it to work.
GurLuvsDroid and I are friends ... just razzing her a little.
twistedlim, thank you for the kind words, but I knew messenger was just jerking my chain the second I read his post! He thinks he's funny , but generally when he posts stuff like that I just . LOL
Ahseesaidthewiseman Too bad you can't get UD rolling, its a nice one.
8.1? Did I miss something?
I'm glad I didn't sleep on this ROM. It's very clean and so far stable (knock on wood). I love the UD settings interface and options. I'm using Chevy's 1.1 LV kernel and battery life is up to par with what I'm usually used to. I do notice a lag when opening up apps but not a big deal. This might be the ROM that I'll keep until I get a new phone.
I can't install the stock phone or a different boot animation either. I get the same error. Otherwise this Rom is perfect.
Well, I guess the wedding is off!
I'm pretty sure your wife would have something to say about the wedding anyway!
I love this rom. Ive never had a rom with the stability and battery life like this rom and I even switched to launcherpro because of it. I do have one issue though, its stupid and it might be me, but for some reason on this rom, when im typing (standard android keyboard) and i hit spacebar it goes to the home screen like i hit the haptic button which i did. Is there any way this rom could have the display set a few points lower then other roms? its just odd in 10 months of owning this phone its only happened now lol.
Installing a different boot animation is easy if you use Root Explorer (or terminal if you like the non-gui route), but if I remember correctly UD8 only uses /data/local for boot animations... not /system/media (both work with other ROMs).
I eventually gave up on trying to get the stock dialer to work. I still love UD but I've been playing with different ROMs while I await UD9. Right now playing with Miui ROM... trying to work out the kinks, I'm not sure I'll be able to but it's promising as hell.
Any word on 9.0 yet???
Yes. The official word is that it's not released yet.
Well... That's an answer...
This might be a dumb question, but is this a full custom ROM? If it is, would I be able to load this onto my Milestone??
you are in the wrong section. you should be in the milestone area. while these phones have a lot of similarities, the root info is completely different.
oh and no this rom will not work on your phone,sorry
Great... now what do I do with the toaster I bought?
I love it...it didn't work great the first time, but after reinstalling it is snappy and customizable. I have a few questions though that I couldn't figure out:
Can I change the background of the notification bar? It is black and it is hard to see some of the icons.
In gmail app, I can't tell the unread messages from the read messages...can i customize this and how? Used Stock font and this solved the problem
The phone dialer is not the best looking. Can i change the appearance of it?
The text in Handscent is too light, I would like to make it more bold...can I...fixed in handscent settings
Any help with these would be much appreciated.
Slayher kernel, OC 1000
You can change system font in Ultimate Droid settings, (first item on the list under settings).
I installed the black glass 928 theme and love it, (which also provides a nicer dialer) still have the black notification bar tho... hopefully UD9 will address this.
I called VZW and a rep there told me 9.0 should be pushed out within the next two weeks.
