    Every time I play music on winamp or pandora I get a few skips like it pauses for half a scond. Its really annoying and wondered if anyone had this.

    There's another thread on this in this same section but to answer your question I was having this issue but it seems to have been resolved in 1.9.

    Still seems to happen for me with 1.9. However, it is MUCH improved. Before it would skip when I wasn't even doing anything else. Now, it only has these pauses/skips when I am doing something on my phone other than just listening to music, and even then less frequently.

    This is by far the most annoying thing about my phone. Not sure if the rom is really to blame though. I've even noticed this on my Motorola Xoom running honeycomb occasionally. Never seemed to have this problem with any Froyo roms on my phone though. Could be a Gingerbread and Honeycomb problem.

    For me it got a lot worse. I'm not sure about it being a GB or HC problem because on UD 3.3.1 I never had it. Moved to simply stunning to try another GB rom but haven't tested that out yet.

    This is also happening to me. From what I can tell it skips every time the CPU changes it's frequency... for example, shortly after I touch a button, when I turn the screen off, when a notification comes through, when I wake the phone, ect.. Maybe I am wrong just something I have been noticing lately.

    I also tried locking in memory and am still getting skips. I am going to go to 1.92 today and if I still have the skips I may try a new kernel. Is everyone having the problem running the stock 1.9 kernel? I know I am.

    Using 1.92 with stock kernel and music skipping is still an issue for me, happens on any music player I use, stock & poweramp, very annoying.

    I'm gonna run it stock at first. Make sure all my apps work. Then if needed I'll look at ALT kernels.

    Tried deprimed kernel, only got skips/pauses when opening other apps while music playing, no random. On a chevyno1 lv 1000, still pauses at times when opening certain apps, this app being one of them, lol.

    Well, I switched to Simply Stunning 1.53 with Chevy's newest 1.0Ghz LV kernel yesterday because I couldn't stand the skipping and I couldn't figure out how to get Music Beta to install with 1.9 or 1.92. Sure enough, I have been listening to several hours of music with no skips today even when surfing the web via Music Beta! :)

    Don't know if it was the kernel, Liquid's rom, or something weird about my installation or setup, but I've been having this problem since 1.8. Tried all versions from 1.8 on using CorCor's kernel and had the same problem. Before that I was with a much earlier version of LGB...can't quite remember which version or what kernel...1.5?....anyway, I never noticed the problem with this version/kernel, but that doesn't mean it didn't exist. I just didn't notice it.

    So, summary is, the problem is NOT with all Gingerbread rom/kernel combinations. Not sure what the problem specifically is though or how to fix it short of switching to another rom/kernel that works for you with no skips. Strange.

    Had the same skipping problem and phone didn't want to multitask with any other apps while music was playing, even with Minfree on the jacked up gaming settings.

    Switched over to Chevy's Low voltage 1.1ghz 05/31/11 kernel, and now phone happily plays music with no skips, and lets me browse at the same time too.

    Random bug / annoyance, I use Tasker for a bunch of things including the menu of apps that pops up when I put my headphones in. Now when I select what app I want, the menu pops up every minute or so with the headphones staying in the whole time. Weird.
