    We've created an FAQ at Project Elite to make finding answers to a lot of your PE questions easier.

    You can find it here: Project Elite.

    We'll try to keep updating it and your suggestions for items we should include in the FAQ are welcome -- just PM me or post them in this thread.

    We hope it helps!

    Yet one more thing that puts PE above and beyond all other ROMS.

    GLD, just read the FAQ. Great job very informative! One question, if an user switched to RZRecovery can you still use ROM Manager to fix the permissions? I haven't uninstalled RM, yet. Will there be compatibility issues mess things up, or is this a non-issue?

    Thank you in advance?

    Good question, but it's a non-issue. I have RZRecovery, but use ROM Manager to fix permissions and there's no conflict at all, because ROM Manager doesn't use recovery to fix permissions.

    Great job; I just breezed through the info and it's great. One question I still haven't gotten an answer to is about custom ring tones. Even after going through my contacts and redoing them, I still get only the default ring tone when a call comes in. It doesn't matter if I use Zedge to set the tone or the Android system; there is no difference. Admittedly, this problem has been around for a long time, but it does not work at all in PE5. Any help would be appreciated.

    This is great GLD!

    I'll be interested to see if you guys can keep it up to date (which is easier said than done)

    @mojo_droid: Thanks for the reply. Wipes were done. I followed GLD's guide, which, BTW, is quite informative. Should I reinstall? Thanks for the help.

    The custom ring tones issue is not going to turn me away from this amazing ROM, but I sure would like to get it fixed.

    Secondly, between day before yesterday and today, I lost navigation while traveling because the GPS signal just quit. I got lost today and had to do the airplane mode on and off thing before getting on the road again.

    yea, those issues are not normal, i suggest reinstalling after a complete wipe and make sure you are careful when restoring your apps and data so you don't restore anything that causes issues with your phone

    Okay, after spending about 4 hours getting things set again, custom ring tones are still not working. I followed GLD's guide, and this time I made 100% sure no system info was restored, as per instructions.

    I am getting ready to get out on the road for a trip and will evaluate the GPS issue again. Will keep you posted.

    Well, after a long road trip yesterday, I did see quite an improvement in the GPS issue; there was only one reboot!

    The lack of custom ring tones issue has me stumped, though. It's quite puzzling.

    The only other issue is with Facebook not syncing properly. I have to log out and then back in so that FB continually syncs. This happens every time I reboot or plug the phone up to the computer to manage files. After turning USB off, I have to do the FB thing all over again.

    This is still a wonderful ROM, but I may need to go back to 4.2 for a while. PE ROMS are tops as far as I see. Thanks for all the hard work.

    I'm having the same problem with custom ringtones. I also did a complete wipe. Usually, I have this problem when I'm using SetCPU. I haven't used setCPU since I flashed PE v5 though. Stumped.

    Okay, I think I've got this thing figured out, but need help in carrying out my theory.

    I just changed one of my custom ring tones to one that came with the PE5.02, and it worked just fine. My theory is that for some reason or other, the dialer (or whatever) doesn't go fetch the custom ring tone, but just grabs the default.

    How do I put the ring tones I've downloaded from Zedge into the system's ring tones folder? I also want to delete the ones I'll never use, giving me more room to move my downloaded tones into the appropriate folder under /system? Does this make any sense?

    EDIT: I think I figured it out with a simpler solution. I installed an app called Ringo Lite and then locked it in to memory. It seems all is well for now, but will test it out more tomorrow. Wonder is there's an app which is included with the ROM that will do the same thing.

    The ring tone fix in the above post doesn't work; it looked like it would at first, but it is a definite bust.

    Even though I have busy box installed, I can't use terminal emulator to delete the system ring tones and place the ones from Zedge in the same spot.

    I guess I'll just learn to live with one ring tone. The rest of the ROM is incredible and I appreciate all the hard work the devs have put in its development.

    Completely solved; I went back to PE4.2 and it works just fine. Thanks for a great GB ROM. It might just be a limitation in GB and I'm sure the guys will get this fixed in future edits.

    A couple of issues had me scrambling a few times, especially on trips where I depended on my phone.

    Again, thanks. 4.2 is the ticket for me now.
