    Should I make a request to the ROM designers?

    Long story short, when I plug a stereo 3.5mm cable from the TBolt into my car stereo, the Stock ROM mutes the phone's microphone(s) so that the person can't hear me when I talk.

    HTC states that they may provide a hotfix for this as lots have been complaining about it... I am seriously considering Rooting my phone (for lots of reasons), but one would be the custom ROMs. Should I be posting my request to fix this in a custom ROM to one of the designer/programmers?

    Well since no one responded, I am going to put my hopes and dreams for a custom ROM, and right now they are simple:

    -Fix the issue of the phone muting the external Microphones when I plug a 3.5mm stereo cable into the headphone jack. That way I can conduct phone calls using my car's AUX port on the radio.

    -Make it so that the Home screens will rotate to landscape modes (like ADW Launcher).

    I hope they do this as well. I'm an audiophile and I hate needing to unplug to talk to someone, it's incredibly inconvenient.

    I don't think a custom ROM developer can fix this issue. It's unfortunate because I loved it with my OG D1 and D2. I can't say this is the only thing I don't like about the TB but it's one of the things.

    You should contact them and tell them of your displeasure for canned responses.

    This is by design. Won't get changed unless HTC decides to fix it. Sorry.

    If you look in the TB hacks section I posted bgill's stock Rose landscape and the code needed to change it to landscape by yourself. The reason why people are not adding it to ROMs is because some HTC widgets are buggy when landscape.

    If you let me know what ROM you are running I can probably change it and give it to you.

    What doesn't make sense (pun) about that is that when in the car dock, if you exit the Car Dock app of your choice (mine is Car Home) and go to the home screens, everything appears in landscape with no issues.

    I am currently running Lightening Rom 3.1

    Not sure how you contacted them, but in numerous other posts, I have called them a couple of times to complain of the issue. Both times I was told by HTC that they are aware of the issue and that many have called about it. It remains to be seen if they will fix it with Gingerbread or a hotfix, but I have to believe that a custom ROM designer/programmer can find the setting easily enough and change the mute setting to off. Until someone fixes it, I have a workaround so I am ok with the phone... that is my only complaint so far with this bad boy.
