    Text and install problems

    For those of you with the problems not receiving text messages, are you using the stock sms app or a third party app like handsent? I have read on other threads the same issue and it appears to be a problem with both gingerbread and handsent. Try uninstalling your third party sms app and just use the stock messaging app to see if that works. This is a known issue with the LGB rom as well.

    As for installing a new rom, check out this thread on doing a clean install of new roms and restoring using TI backup.

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/pr...an-install-restore-using-titanium-backup.html

    It has worked great for me so far. Read through the instructions carefully before starting, then read them again. The one thing they leave out is that you need to have a way of installing TI backup without signing into google to download it from the market. Before you flash ur new rom and after you have made all your backups in TI backup, open up TI and go into the settings and select the "more" option then press "create update.zip". In the options on the next screen, make sure "user application" is highlighted and then select the option to name the file "TitaniumBackup-3.6.x.x.zip" That way you don't overwrite any current update.zip you may have on your sdcard. Then click create update zip bar at the bottom to make your file. Some roms, like UD 3.1 do not come with TI backup preinstalled. This way after you flash your rom, go back into SPRecovery, select "install zip from sdcard", then select "choose zip from sdcard" then scroll down to find your file named TitaniumBackup and select it. It will install TI backup then when you reboot you can continue with your install following the instructions from GLD's post. I realize that some of you may not have a good back up at this point, so follow all the steps except do the google sign in an let your apps restore. Get all your settings the way you like them, update all your apps to the most current version then make a good back up with TI including system settins. Then you are all set for your next rom.

    actjeff...Thanks for the above info. I wasn't aware of that procedure for getting Titanium Backup on my phone without signing into Google. I always ended up unchecking Automatic Restore in the Privacy menu as well as unchecking Auto Sync before signing in. That way when I would sign in my apps didn't automatically start to download (and I could just manually download what I needed at that moment). Looks like I learned something new today.

    I've have never once used RM, and always do a full wipe of EVERYTHING before flashing a new ROM, and with GB I have always gotten the random reboots and not always being able to receive texts. We may be using the same phone but not all phones are the same. I plan on giving it a try I'm just a leery about it is all.

    And as for the 3rd party messaging app I've used handcent, GO, and the stock messaging app and have had problems with all 3

    I am very careful when installing new roms and do everything 4 times as stated above but still experience some missed emails on all GB roms. Everything looks and runs well but then I see my email (I use the gmail app) doesn't go through (send or receive) but only a couple here and there. But it is very important for business that I receive all my emails so it is just not worth it for me to run a GB rom. I have a feeling, since these issues are sometimes very subtle, that some people are having these issues and don't even know it. I didn't know I was having issues until some people said I had not responded to their emails.

    I know a ton goes into creating these roms so I appreciate all the devs hard work. With that said, since GB was not intended for the Droid 1, I think it just may not work 100%...yet.

    Just my thoughts.

    so i followed GLD's method and was still getting stuck in a boot loop after restoring with titanium backup. i finally narrowed it down to not checking [SETTINGS/BLUETOOTH] Settings Storage 2.3.3 when restoring missing apps+ all system data and only checking the green items. then i followed the rest of his guide and it seems to have solved that problem.

    But now i notice that i cant add my facebook acct. to sync with. im able to log into facebook but cant add the acct. so my contacts sync.

    *deleted facebook from market then reinstalled it from market and it finally synced*

    It appears this ROM is still unstable.

    Not sure what you mean by that. This rom is 100% stable for me.

    I guess I am one of the lucky ones, as UD 3.1.0 is bar far the most stable, smooth running I have tried to date.
