usb-sdcard sharing does not work

João Esteves said...


Drag the status bar and select «Mount usb device».

João Esteves said...

At line n.º 4, I must apply the new rom build, and restart? And then apply the SuperAOSP?

Can I find a newbie guide in here?

João Esteves said...

Can anyone tell me why I should not install only «SuperAOSP 8.6»?

hugo said...

the g sensor is working backwards, already checked seetings

Spicysomtam said...

Viewing the screen horizontal shows the display upside down. Other problem is problem with wifi hotspot: it doesn't work unless you make the connection open (no wpa); this seems an old bug that has re-appeared.

Spicysomtam said...

I tried build 139 too; same issues.

Spicysomtam said...

ok, I tried 128 and then 124; 124 is the one that fixes the rotate screen issue. Maybe 125,126,127 work? I havn't the patience to try all those!

Abhilash said...

i tried build 124....why is d battery backup so poor... i used to get 28-36 hrs with jellybean...but with this only 10-12 hrs battery life...plz look into this problem seriously...

Kroker said...

Installed cm7.0.2_z71_battery_memory_fix.nb0 (with SUTLR_v1.7.0). Phone OK.
Installed cm_z71_full-137.zip. Screen didn't recognize touch. Went back. Phone OK.
Installed SuperAOSP 8.6 Phone OK.
It's working. Most time...
Once in a wile it goes down and text messenges are not recieved. Phone calls yes.
SMS only comes back after another reboot (the one the phone does when this hapens, doesn't count)
Still don't know if this happens when I send a 'special' SMS or recieve one ('special' as too big or with characters like # $ % &)
Anyone with same problem?
Waiting for a more stable version.

Askganesha.com Astrologer said...

I opened the fine SuperAOSP 8.6 using Rom Manager and rebooted the phone. The phone is now showing
kernel version: #2

Kindly let me know if I have to download cm_z71_full-137.zip to my memory card and then apply the new rom and then use the Super AOSP 8.6 again

Please let me know at present how do I go to the Recovery menu an also the steps I need to follow now

As of now the phone is working fine.

Mighty Ghost said...

Askganesha.com Astrologer said...

Well The link to the AOSP 8.6 was given on the top of this page itself.

Kindly let me know if I have to download cm_z71_full-137.zip to my memory card and then apply the new rom and then use the Super AOSP 8.6 again

Mighty Ghost said...

Oic, I will to download again.

Yes, just put cyanogen zip to sd. Apply using rom manager. After finish updating, apply the kernal patch.that's all.

Askganesha.com Astrologer said...

I updating the cm_z71_full-137.zip from my sd card using rom manager. I was not able to update the kernal patch as it aborted the patch automatically. Any thing i can do to solve this.

There is one more thing if I reject an incoming call it does not show as missed but reflects the incoming call arrow. Any suggestions.

The phone booted on its own and kept on doing it. I had to take out the battery and then started the phone.

The DSP manager application keeps running even after using advanced task killer

KAKA20979 said...

are this rom can do installing USB Ethernet/RNDIS on PC (if we use WinXP) without asking a Z71 Drivers again like latest G.Bread Rom from Cyanogen ?

Askganesha.com Astrologer said...


I also faced the problem of usb thetering. The phone did not connect it just opened up the USB mass storage.

The battery back up is not good even after updating the SuperAOSP_8.6_.
It is just 10hrs with mild usage

The phone reboots atleast three times in a day

The dsp manger does not get killed even after using the task killer

Can anybody help me out to solve the above problems

thnx in advance

Askganesha.com Astrologer said...


The phone is restarting many times now and I am also not able to connect the phone through SUT LR please help. How to get the things back in order.


Abhilash said...

hi.....i need some help...
i am not able to flash any rom through rom manager hav zip format... i am only able to flash .nb0 format files using SUT..
plz help i need to flash a rom that is in zip format only...

Mighty Ghost said...


Sorry offline few days.

1. it reboots any time though not frequently but a three times in a day
Ans : Do you have many applications installed? Running application? Im using it but the frequently reboot not everydayd...

2. the DSP manager does not stop even after using the advanced task killer
Ans : Im not using this application at all. Cant help u.

3. I faced a problem in between that the menu button did not show menu it just poped up the key board.
Ans : This bug already here since older build. It didnt get fixed. Im not sure why and also, reboot is our choice now.

Regarding to downrade to the cyanogen fix.nbo, u cannot. U need to reflash it again. Downgrade to 2.1 then flash cyanogen.

Mighty Ghost said...

If "The SUT does not work as it says the phone is not connected.". Always reboot ur device either and go to download mode.

If "the zip file failed to update via rom manager". Make sure ur zip files not damaged because sometime, the downloading process might damaged ur download file.

Askganesha.com Astrologer said...

Thnx Mighty ghost

I will give you the feedback as soon as I use it


Ps. Do you think I should use the rom 7.0.3-Z71 which is given on cyanogenmod it says that it is the stable version

Mighty Ghost said...


if u use the stable version. then, u cannot flash the nightly build. cause, the stable version will become nightly build later on.. :)

if u prefer updated, just follow up the nightly build.

Askganesha.com Astrologer said...

Thnx Mighty, got it.


Askganesha.com Astrologer said...

Hi Mighty

The phone is working fine and the battery is also good now. I didnt try the SUTLR as it was not needed.

Teh problem which I am facing now are
1. The phone restarts at least three times in a day
2. Not able to view the flash banners or images on the web browser
3. Not able to use the phone as modem via usb cable.

Please help me on these


Ps. There is one more favour which I would request you. You see when I had the factory 2.1 of Spice MI 300 and in that there was a "Socially" app which gave information of the caller's city and network during incoming call. I searched hard over the net but was not able to find the .apk file for it. Even sent a mail to the developers but no response.

SziEgU said...

I've got some weird problem with this version:
- from orange 2.1 I flashed Apanda to unlock the phone, and so it did, after i flashed back to 2.1 and everything was fine.
- flashed everything as required in this post and all seemed fine.
- when I tried to go back to orange 2.1 my phone's signal strength went to almost zero from 3 lines and I cannot get it back no matter what I flash on it. My IMEI is ok.

Ideas ?
