Yea you can go back to 235 but I don't think it'd change anything with regard to that particular issue.
I have it occasionally on 232 when using the nav system.
I think it's a matter of time for this issue to manifest itself; I personally don't have any issues with headphones. Also the user has some responsibility as well. If volumes are continually cranked up the electronics will degrade over time. Speakers, etc. I'm not saying that this is the case but from my own experience I have done this.
I'm on 232 and also have this problem.
Which problem? The volume loss?
Been running 238 for a couple days now and the only change I see is a negative one: battery life. Using 235, I could get 40+ hrs of usage at home, now its just over half that. Looking at the usage, it appears that Android OS is now nearly 50% of battery usage. It was always the main battery drain in all ICS builds, but I usually saw 20-30%. Looking at my time in state, I can't get 1.2GHz under 15% even with light usage. Previously, it was 2-3%.
Seems like everyone else is praising the battery life of 238. Wonder why my phone seems to be an exception.
I've had odd volume issues with EVERY OS on this damn thing, including the old GB builds. Never used headphones either, my phone just decides to go silent from time to time. Seems to be related to certain apps notification tones.
My phone has also experienced a more rapid battery drain while on 238; even after a fresh battery calibration. My phone is usually on my desk doing nothing from 8-4:30 and will drop 40%. I would be at 80% battery with 235 with the same conditions.
Only since I've been on 232 have I had problems with losing media sound. It will work then not. Almost like another app has not released hold of it for other use. No new apps have been introduced or used. I'm consistent in that sense.
I also had horrible battery life on 232 but after a factory data reset after freshly reinstalling it, it seems much better.
Yeah total loss of audio output. No rhyme or reason.
don't know if it's the same problem I had, but my Bionic has been doing that since I got it. I thought the same thing - but even after multiple updates/resets/downgrades the problem never went away. Then it started shutting down and sometimes not booting up for a while - Again, I thought this was some kind of firmware issue but no firmware updates/downgrades would fix it. Eventually it stopped booting completely and I was told that this was all part of the same hardware failure - probably bad contacts somewhere. I got a replacement (refurb) and haven't had the problem since.
I had the same problem.. I found a quick fix though. When it mutes like that, I hit the home key and press on the volume. It will change the ringer volume and I'll hear a tone. It seems to work after that. Other than that, I get great battery life on 238.
Does anyone's browser sync work yet? I lost mine since the first ICS build.
Chrome syncs for me. I don't use the standard browser.
I don't use the stock browser either. Firefox syncs for me.
Yeah, Chrome syncs just fine, but the stock browser doesn't.
Alright so even with as long as I've been here, I still have no idea what cheesecake means, in regards to Android. Would someone mind filling me in here? Google is being a smartalec and trying to get me to eat a delicious treat.
Cheesecake is an app that someone developed to allow you to change what server your update is checking so you can look for leaked updates on the different moto servers.
