4.7 runs snappier than 4.6
Uh, big things happening in IRC
4.8 LTE now!!!
Edit: I'm still on 4.5.6 and am still having trouble with LTE signal strength. I am pretty sure it is not just a # of bars issue, as that jumps around from 0 to 3 in the same location in my house. I've have to toggle airplane regardless of the number of bars.
Of course, signal has always been a bit inconsistent with this phone, it was best with 4.0.4 stock for me.
Okay, I'm on 4.8 and I know that Eagle worked hard on new features... Heck if I can find them, as I do not know what's new... I would love a hint from the devs

Can you get the old clock from 4.1 to work? I've been copying your method of importing the old clock apk into all my 4.2 ROMs but it won't work on 4.6 nor 4.7. Are you able to get your old clock to work with 4.8?
Yep. All day long.
It's a very particular process: after the flash, there are a number of reboots required for me: As soon as I get to the home screen, I reboot into recovery to flash Titanium Backup into the app drawer; then once my stuff is restored in Titanium Backup, I have to reboot again. And THAT'S when you need to do the work.
DO NOT RESTORE Clock (ALARMS) in the Titanium Backup restore. De-select it. Once everything else restores, reboot the phone and then open Root Explorer (if you're letting it all come in from Play, wait until it's all finished).
In Root Explorer, copy the 4.1 Deskclock from its position, navigate into System/app and press Mount R/W. Long-press the existing 4.2 Deskclock and rename it deskclock.apk.bak and then press "PASTE" to put the 4.1 Deskclock in there. Mount R/O and back out.
Reboot the phone so the app "takes".
NOW go into Titanium Backup and restore the Clock (ALARMS) if you wish. Reboot AGAIN.
When it comes back up, you should have the 4.1 Deskclock in the app drawer, so you can put it on a homescreen, etc. and all your alarms intact.
Hope this helps
Hey developers: Did you guys do something with the Bluetooth? I PROMISE I restored nothing Bluetooth and paired/connected from scratch. I tried to behave
But this thing drops left and right: even when I'm holding the phone in my hand it breaks up!
Not sure what is going on, but 4.5.6 didn't do this. Just from 4.6 on, my Bluetooth is shot. Same headset, same everything.
here is the best part..... we havent touched BT since 4.5.6
suggest trying another kernel, we did update ours and maybe its not playing nice with your phone and BT?
Could be. I'll try Popcorn v12 and see how it does.
EDIT: WHOA! Popcorn v12 is bootlooping my phone!
Gotta reflash the ROM and Gapps... well, THAT didn't work...
Thanks for the detailed post. Yea I am able to get the apk copied into the system/apps folder and reboot and am able to get the 4.1 deskclock into my widgets upon a reboot, however once I add the widget to the main screen it will not open once I tap on it. I have no clue what I'm doing wrong. All the permissions, I believe, are set correctly (r/w). Man I don't know what I'm going to do without that alarm..
Downloading V5.0 now and going to see if that fixes it, but am doubtful...
Why don't you PM me your EXACT procedure. I don't have a widget, just the icon. But I have clock and alarms all day long...
EDIT: Did you restore the Clock (Alarms) DATA ONLY in Titanium Backup and reboot again?
Lesson Learned: I violated my own rule just one time. ONE STUPID TIME. I didn't make a nandroid before flashing Popcorn v12 because I've flashed kernels many times before without incident. The one time I fail to nandroid, I lose work by having to dirty flash the ROM & Gapps.
MAKE THE NANDROID, FOLKS!
there is an app clockics by mobilynx on play that works well too...
Hey thanks, if I can't get the apk copy to work, I'll definitely use this as a second option!!
PM replied to, Noah... good luck! We'll get this fixed!

EDIT: Can anyone here explain briefly what PIE actually is? Without undue references to baked dessert or 3.14159? Thanks
I have spent the last 3 hours setting up 4.7 then 4.8 and now 5.0 dropped....downloading now....... I Love this ROM!
And here I was thinking I was going to go to bed relatively early tonight. And then I see this. Annnd, let the download commence.
trying to get version 5 to download, slow lol
Oh, this might sound silly, but, is there any particular place(s) where I can adjust for the following issue I'm having...
It seems every time I connect via Bluetooth to, well..anything, OR, if I plug in my phone to the USB on my new Pioneer deck in my car, Apollo starts up. Which means then I have to go shut it back down. It's even more annoying if I am listening to Pandora, and then turn the car off to go into a store or whatever (which breaks the BT connection), and then come back out and turn it on. Apollo auto-stars, and overrides my Pandora.
The only place I remember seeing anything about it, was in the Sound option in Settings for starting music app when connected (headsets), which I disabled, and it happens still. Nothing in Apollo for settings that I saw either. So, I don't know if it's just me, or my phone, or if there's another setting buried somewhere I haven't found yet for this
And I'll see what happens after 5.0, of course.
Note: I should mention that it acts differently depending on the BT device. The car stereo does it every single time it connects. My Jabra Cruiser, it's a lot less often. So I dunno. Just figured I'd see what anyone thinks
I disabled apollo because it would jsut crash randomly, and I never used it.
I use Google Play and stream everything... Apollo got in my way big time, so I froze it in Titanium Backup
EDIT: Is there a list of compatible kernels for this ROM? I tried Popcorn v12 with disastrous results (if you're just tuning in) and do NOT want a repeat... are the ones in Tools proven to work?
Loving V5 so far (especially the recorder toggle)! Lots of new options
Thanks for all the hard work devs!
Hmm, interesting "problem" when installing 5.0. I wiped and flashed 5.0 & Minimus Gapps. Opened up the Play Store to make sure everything was installing, and then it just closed on me. Re-opened the play store again, and instead of "Black Play Store" it was just standard. Did it just stealth upgrade on me? Not really a big concern, but I kind of like having the darker themes on an OLED screen...
