I'm trying CM9 on GSM but ran into some trouble.
The error message "Unfortunately, the process com.android.phone has stopped" keep popping up and I can't manage to do anything.
*#*#4636#*#* gets me into the hidden settings, but as soon as I get into Phone information, the error message closes the dialog.
I cannot get into airplane mode
Is there anything specific that I can do to fix this? Or I need to sbf the phone again and start from scratch, making sure a specific setting is done before installing CM9?
Thanks in advance for any tips.
Thanks aiamuzz, I did follow what you just said but didn't work.
Anyway, for some strange reason, the phone miraculously stopped popping up the error code. Not sure what I did right.
Now I found this issue not to be able to get the phone to ask for my GSM SIM card's PIN code.
The SIM PIN mode is greyed out. It can see the network provider, but reception bar is crossed, because I have no way to enter my SIM's PIN to register onto the network.
Is there any work around for this other than disabling the SIM PIN?
For all GSM-Users: Before flashing the rom open the zip with 7zip(.org) and extract the build.prop.
Edit the following line:
# Default network type.
# 7 => Global Phone (4 => CDMA).
ro.telephony.default_network=7 (Change the "7" to a "0" = gsm/wcdma preferred or to a "3" = gsm auto)
then simply delete (in 7zip) the original build.prop and copy your edited version into the zip, then flash it.
If you already flashed it you can simply edit the build.prop in your root explorer of choice after enabling airplane-mode to stop the com.phone.android from fc-ing every 4 seconds...
If you donīt want to do this (or if you want to change your network settings quickly) you can simply change the phone language temporary to english (us), you can now access the network setting without the com.android.phone fc-ing and simply edit whatever you like, save it and change the language back to your choice....
GSM-Users should also edit the line: ro.mot.phonemode.vzwglobalphone=1 to a "0" that gives you a real good boost in terms of your network-speed and (in some cases) gets rid of the "canīt send/receive sms"-problems
And last but not least attached are the fully working german layouts for the keyboard.. They go in: /system/usr/Keychars/ and /system/usr/keylayout (just override the old ones and reboot)
@TooUglyForU : Try editing the build.prop-value: keyguard.no_require_sim=true and change that to false that SHOULD force the Sim-Pin... (No promises)

Just flashed CM9 and all that and absolutely love it! so glad I did it. It runs so much smoother and looks so much better than before. The only problem is with the physical keyboard. After it has been on for a while the physical keyboard stops working as a keyboard and starts just opening random programs when touched. Did i change a setting or something? Whenever i reboot it goes back to working normally for a while then back to messed up. Is this a known glitch or a setting or something new?
