    Screen-off music controls

    Is anyone else having issues using the volume rocker to control music with the screen off? Sometimes (not always, but usually) when I hold the volume down button to skip a track, it seems to stick and keep skipping after I let go. The only way to stop it is to reboot it seems. Has anybody else found a workaround?

    phenix,

    I started to say I hadn't experienced this before on this ROM, but after testing it for 10 minutes I was able to replicate it as well. Actngrezy is the best dev at responding to issues, so I'm sure he'll follow up and check on this. Weird, because I listen to music often and hadn't had it happen until I tried to "force the issue."

    Yep I always wipe. I should also note that it doesn't seem to matter what app I use, it's happened with Pandora, last.fm, winamp, and the stock music player. Don't know if it was an issue when I ran pe3.5 but definitely an issue now.

    Pretty sure this same issue plagued cyanogen for the longest time, though it was eventually fixed.

    I turned that mod off after it did the same thing on other roms, but the problem I'm having is when the screen is on but is still 'locked', the three controls near the bottom don't do anything. Pause, skip back and next don't do anything.

    This isn't going to make me switch to another rom tho, I'm liking PEv4 more than I ever have any other.

    I tried to duplicate the problem you describe, bazar, but I can't. My music controls at the bottom of the lock screen are working consistently fine.

    This stinks. I'm using the Music 1x4 widget to control the music, and in PE's settings / Multimedia, the Vitrual Music Controls is set to "When Playing". I can't find anything else that could help in replicating, or in fixing this. If not, no worries. Like I said, minor thing for me, I'm not running to another rom just because of this.

    That's how I have my Virtual Music Controls set in Elite Settings, as well. Did you do a Titanium Backup restore? And if so, did you restore [SETTINGS/BLUETOOTH] Settings Storage 2.2.1? If you did, especially coming from another ROM, that may have caused weird conflicts with the Elite Settings functions. Try making a nandroid backup first, then go into Titanium Backup and wipe all data from that item (the one in green above) and reboot, then see if your music controls work. Just know before you do this that you may have to set all your other settings in Elite Settings again.

    No, I did a clean factory wipe (both files and cache options in SPRecovery) before installing this, with no restores.
    I think I've used TitaniumBackup maybe once. I prefer to use the nandroid in recovery to backup (and restore if i have to).

    But I did just do what GirlLuvsDroid recommended, backed up then wiped the settings/bluetooth, then rebooted. Now I see where I had a problem a little while ago: the home button, magnify button, and lock button don't work. The power button just turns off the display, no lock screen at all when I turn it back on; and I have no clue where this is in. (I'm using LauncherPro, but that's set to do the home button to the homescreen, but it doesn't) Should I just do the recover through TiBackup for that setting? - Then I'll be able to know if the lock screen controls work.
