    I tried mine - yes it's white but I think the boxes and dates inside are also white. I touched several areas on my screen which pulled up different days, so it's all there - you just can't see them. Maybe a setting or the font colors need to be reset or changed.[/QUOTE]

    I really have no use for the stock calendar anyway ... I don't think it even syncs with Google Calendar. Business Calendar Free all the way!

    Hey guys i want to download this but i have a problem. I flashed Velocity 1.2.1 on my phone and ever since then i cant reboot into recovery. When ever i try to do this my phone goes to the blue fastboot screen so i cant flash a rom. :mad: anyone know why this is happening or can help me fix this? would like to test out 1.2.2. Thanks.

    Did you flash an Amon Ra recovery before you flashed 1.2.1?
    Are you holding Phone+Menu+Power from PowerOn?

    Fastboot is capable of flashing, but I don't feel technically adept in giving you a step by step for this particular phone/setup/scenario ... because if you do it wrongly, then you could brick your phone, and I've never flashed from fastboot.

    Here is a guide from cyanogen; use at your own risk: Fastboot - CyanogenMod Wiki

    Any time you use clockwork mod you need to flash the recovery (which ever you choose) at least twice, sometimes three times, to get it to "stick". Both of my Ally's I had to flash it multiple times before it stuck.

    I saw this was said earlier but i highly recommend it, changing the color of the text in the drop down notification bar to white since its hard to read black on black!

    I download the beta rom just now. I currently have Velocity 1.2.1.

    I rebooted into recovery and wiped dalvik-cache. I then proceeded to flash the new rom from sdcard and then got the following errors:

    Finding update package...
    Opening update package...
    Verifying update package...
    E:Wrong digest:
    system/bin/su
    E:Verification failed

    Zip verification failed!
    Zip isn't signed correctly!

    I downloaded the rom again, but ran into the same problem.

    Before you flash you need to accept something that says like change zip signature or something like that. you will know it when you see it. Doing this will allow you to flash the ROM

    I think this rom needs a ICS splash screen and boot up. any one else think so?

    One thing I've noticed on beta 11, if you are using browser (or have any program running) and it goes to sleep, when you wake it up ICS Launcher will FC. But if you don't have any programs running when it wakes up it will Launch just fine. Also I've noticed that if you use the stock browser and hit the home key and put it to sleep (after home screen loads) upon you waking it up the browser is running full screen and ICS Launcher will FC. If you use the back button to back out of the browser it does not do this.

    This is on beta 11, standard as it was unzipped, OC'd max 729 min 245 Smartass Governor.

    I'd run a logcat as it does this everytime, but I'm not that savy yet, I'll see about getting it so I can make logcats to upload to you.

    I've run into the same problem with ICS Launcher with beta 11 and 13. I'll go afk when I have messaging or email up and as I return I get a message about ICS Launcher FCing.

    Another issue I seem to have is that when I slide my keyboard out the home screen and apps screen doesn't rotate 90 degrees like it should.

    You can get a copy of your logcat by issuing this command from the terminal inside the velocity toolkit.

    logcat > /sdcard/logfile.txt

    Here's a copy of my logcat logcat - Pastebin.com

    Flashed beta 13. Did not wipe /data. Did wipe: /cache, /dalvik-cache, battery stats. Could I get a quick changelog? Will wipe data upon request.
