Any Reviews anyone??

Carlos said...

Yes... better try superaosp

Stellit said...

the RC 2 of SuperAosp is pretty good. It also integrated most features from CM, such as long press return to terminate the current application, which is very important for me.
But there is a little problem with wifi, when you wake your phone, you have to disable than enable wifi the gain the wifi connection again. It is a bit weird, but I can live with it.
Battery is good, the same as the fix for CM 7, coz they use the same kernel.
SuperAosp also support app2ext and swap (which may reduce your SD card life).
Ah, forgot to mention, it is also 2.3.4

Stellit said...

And thanks to termoflua (I apologize if the nickname is not correct), you offers us a place to discuss roms for boston.

Carlos said...

My WIFI now connected. But the battery life very bad. From 100% battery, I'm using only wifi for about 1 1/2 hours, the battery goes to 19%!

Stellit said...

Just found another Issue about camera, the system camera application works well, but if i try to take photo with Camera360, it crashes always when I try to take a photo. Is the problem at the ROM or the Application itself?

Aevum Dicessio said...

Camera360 is working fine for me.. check if your AutoFocus is disabled or not, it can be one of the reasons

mOBSCENE said...

I have a problem during calls.... when I put on speaker, the sound goes off. when turn speaker off, I can listen again...
Does anyone have this problem too?
I dont know if this only happened after the updates... :s

Btw, battery life is much better, and wi-fi works fine for me.

Stellit said...

@Aevum Thanks, use MF solved the problem

Sapraj said...

Hello anybody please help. I have installed phatom evo on my Zeus worked well no problems, but since i have made setcpu profile to interactive and plugged in the charger and left it overnight. In the morning i found it dead with no battery indication too. Now it is totally dead. I have removed the battery for 1 day then also nothing happens. No recovery mode too. what to do. My phone is in warranty period now but as i have installed the rom, i hope i have voided the warranty. Please guide me.

Ambicapathy said...

The market application is not available with this rom. Tried downloading and installing market app but it keep on closing once i open it. No google apps bundled with this rom. Any help.

Davies said...

@Ambicapathy its clearly u didn't download Google Apps: gapps-gb-20110307-signed.zip above so download the zip & flash it.

Ambicapathy said...

Hi Davies thanks for the suggestion. It worked for me..You know actually i got one another google apps zip (gapps-mdpi-20110501-signed) which made my phone restarting after flashing the update. So was afraid to flash and now it is working. thanks. Before flashing the google apps my battery was 98 percent after flashing it came to 90%. Do have any idea about this.

eric said...

after flash the rom my car charger can not be use when i on the phone.

so i power off the phone only can br charging.

pls some boby help me and got any idea to sharing.

Aevum Dicessio said...

@Ambicapathy - gapps-mdpi is for cyanogen 6 so flash that when u use any CM6 Roms. Flashing might consume battery thats normal coz it needs reboot too which again consumes a lot of your battery. Hope things are running smooth for you now

Eka said...

Can we play 3d games with this ROM without any problem?

Aevum Dicessio said...

Tried this and also superaosp..
Superaosp felt much better in performance and UI is colorful than CM. No restarts. Wifi hitch is there but not an issue for me its just dragging notification bar down n re-enabling. Waiting for WiFi fix next Sunday :)

柏元 said...

does anyone use task killer with this rom?
is it necessary?

柏元 said...

THX

MixedBlues said...

I just tring to update my phone from Bakpia *sense* Rom to this one. But, after I flash "cm7.0.2_z71_battery_memory_fix.nb0" via SUTLR, here comes the problem... I can't enter fastboot/recovery mode anymore, even can't see the words "enter fastboot"/"enter recovery" on top-left. it just boot like normal and stuck at the Cyanogenmod7 screen, seems like all combin-keys won't work. i can see adb-device on my laptop, but adb not work(driver installed). i can powerup by press "VOLUP+VOLDOWN+POWER" to enter FTM mode, but SUTLR can't detect my phone,too. so that I can't enter fastboot/recovery, and both adb/sutlr can't find my phone, what else can I do? AM I BRICK MY PHONE? ><

S.line said...

Enter download mode to use sut lr (red + vol up + power).

David said...

ahhhhhhhhh things are not anymore what they used be...no updates for 1 week...?
this is still the best blog/source of information for boston and alike devices...
my friend are you telling me the end of this blog is near...?
this blog has been the best resource for devices like ours on the internet. for the people involved all i can say is..good luck

MixedBlues said...

can't enter download mode, too. the only mode that I can enter is FTM, but QPST says "no phone", so that i can't flash via QPST, too. ><
thx for reply anyway.

Terry said...

@MixedBlues after entering FTM mode, you can use hyper terminal to connect the FTM mode and do "at+ftm" to switch the diagnostic port to USB.
Then launch QPST with the same port. you should see the phone. If it does not work, use "at+ftm=1" and do again.

ZAILER said...

using superAosp now .. feels good .. wonder if i can get .nb0 of cyanogen 79 or so .. :)

all both of these lacks a 864 mhz clocking :) i think bakpia had it ..and was good .

MixedBlues said...

@Terry thx a lot :)
"at+ftm" works and I can see my phone in QPST now. but i get following error in Software download:
--
Status: Software Download Aborted
Errors: Could not determine the HEX file's scrambling method. The file is invalid.
--
and in Multi-image:
--
QPST Software Download
The phone you have connected to QPST uses single boot.
The download you have selected will change the boot mode to multi-image boot.
Click Yes to continue.

Status: Software Download Aborted
Errors: No downloader for this combination of phone and boot type
--
Do you know what's the problem now?

MixedBlues said...

@Terry are you Taiwanese? I'm from Taichung, live in HK now.

Terry said...

@MixedBlues Yes, I am Taiwanese.
Becasue the hex file in NB0 is used for SUT, not for QPST, you would see the above error. After doing switching port, you may use SUT and upgrade again. Remember turn off QPST as you upgrade image by SUT.

MixedBlues said...

@Terry I just try to upgrade image by SUT, but SUT still says "Phone is not connected..." (i already see it in QPST and then turn off QPST)

Terry said...

@MixedBlues Can you enter download mode?

MixedBlues said...

@Terry can't enter download mode, too. can we chat via facebook/gtalk/msn/skype or any IM software you use?

Terry said...

@MixedBlues I think if you can enter download mode, you should upgrade image by SUT. Do you have QXDM? If not, you may use QPST to trigger.
But i know you will fail. As show fail, plug out USB, and turn off QPST. Plug in USB and use SUT try again.

MixedBlues said...

@Terry if I have QXDM, what should I do with it? if not, what should I do with QPST to trigger?

MixedBlues said...

@Terry plz add me in MSN(@live.cn) or Gtalk(@gmail.com) if u don't mind, thx.
