    So I'm running liquid which isn't so bad but the music keeps cutting off insanely. And I've wanted to try one of SS roms since the Chevy kernels are so awesome. But I dont know if 5.4 is good since I keep hearing about the 5.3 rom.

    For the most part all the issues with 5.3 have been fixed in 5.4 so flash away and enjoy:icon_ banana:

    So far so good on 5.4. I changed from liquid for the same reason can't stand music glitching. But this is pretty stable for me few bugs here there nothing major.

    I think its a general gingerbread 2.3.4 issue that makes the music skip for some reason, I haven't had a chance to try it out in 5.4 but I know it still skipped some in 5.3 but it was better than liquid

    Been running 5.4 now for 2 days and can do anything on my phone while listening to music with no skipping.

    You are lucky there then...no matter what I do I get some skips...I wonder if it's because I just have so much music on here? (1700 songs)

    You should find someone with Windows XP and put you SD card in the sd slot of that computer and defrag the card. I'll bet that will help....

    Shouldn't be the number of songs. I have over 3,000.

    Everyone has an opinion about this - but this is mine:

    Fragmentation is not the enemy, in and of itself. It IS, however, on media that involves a spinning disk (ie magnetic storage hard drives). Flash memory does not have the time limitations that these disks do - which is why fragmentation on those are bad and cost performance. They have spin-up time, and then seek time.

    I really do not believe SD cards need to be defragmented - especially when one considers it only shortens the life of the card anyway (which wouldn't be bad if something in fact were gained).

    Just IMHO.

    Thanks Chevy, whenever I get time I'm gonna put my music on my computer and "optimize" it - just changing all the higher bitrates down to the standard 128 so I can have a little more free space on my sdcard

    Btw I do believe I'm gonna be sending ya a donation for the awesome work, go buy yourself a beer lol

    Chevy's right, there is no point in defragging SD memory. Defrag only helps reduce seek time which is not an issue in solid state memory. Google it.
