    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.

    I HAVE TO AGREE!!!! By far the best I've ever had. This one is amazing, and the way it all is runs so smoothly. I do have a request though. One of the last roms I used was running honeycomb music mod I believe which one can access the genres etc... the regular music mod isn't bad but if it could have the the genres as well.... it would be untouchable :)

    I for have a question though. I synced my Facebook contacts to my phone as usual but I can't seem to get their pictures for my contacts. How do I do that?

    What do I do when my screen isn't responding when I touch it? Lol sounds weird but the only way to get it to work is to hit the power button to to turn it off and back on again.

    Try a reboot, if that doesn't help you might have to reflash the rom.

    There is some sort of free app on the market that will sync FB pics for your contacts but the name escapes me. Did you load FB on yet? It should have synced all that up for you when you logged in.

    As to the black screen problem. Are you using Launcher Pro? If so, someone suggested in another thread today that going to LP's settings/prefs and clearing them or resetting them might fix issues like that. Personally I just use Launcher ADW EX since it seems to be smoother and less issues for me on my Droid.
