What do you guys think are causing this bad battery life on some phones, but not on others? I am currently on spectator status. Waiting to see if these bugs get fixed before I make the jump to liquid from froyo cm7. I'm excited for this rom, as everyone is really happy for it, but the bugs seem to make it a pleasure rom, not a daily driver. But I am keeping a keen eye on this.
Sent from my Banana Phone.
I would make a backup in clockwork and try the rom for yourself. t may run great for you, it may not but the only way to find out for sure is try it for your self. Personally, as long as the battery is not dieing extremely fast, ask your self how often is it you really do not have access to an outlet or USB port to charge your phone? Of course that is me personally.
In my experience, this rom seems to be the best GB rom for the D2G. I have experienced the camera issues and sticky issues, but I have noticed that the sticky issue only happens every other reboot for me. So if I need to change soemthing and sticky does not work, just reboot and I am fine as long as I do not reboot. Battery life could be better but I followed the advice listed elsewhere on the forums. If memory serves me right run battery down to 0%, charge to 100%, charge a little longer, then unplug, and wipe battery stats in clock work recovery. Now my batter life really is not to bad, but it has seen better days. It helped none the less. 3G and Wi-Fi work fine usually, but if they do not, a simple reboot always fixes this just like it fixes the sticky issues.
Does USB mode work? I remember when it first came out it didn't and that was a deal breaker for me and I sbf'd.
Like 8+ hours decent?
I'm honestly starting to question whether or not the Liquid team is even going to support this ROM and try to correct anything. I joined their forums to see if they had anything going, and it's dead. I haven't heard anything from the actual team about planned fixes.
Ditto on the camera and skippy 3G. Ironically, I returned my first D2 under warranty because the camera wouldn't focus (at least it could take distant pics). I used to get 2.5Mbps with 3G at my house and now I can barely get a connection. There's a tower 1/2-mile away and clear line-of-sight. Definitely something wrong there. GPS didn't activate upon entry to Google Maps, so I turned it off and back on and made sure I pushed the My Location button on Google Maps and it works fine. I wasn't thrilled to see the Droid 1 era email client in this ROM either (doesn't even have a search function, which at least the D1 app did), but I got K9 and it's all good.
Other issues I have (not bugs, but issues) are that with GB 2.3.3 that Verizon pushed out earlier this year the camera app would take widescreen shots (and the camera worked). This camera doesn't work or have a widescreen option. Secondly, 2.3.3 separated the keyboard lock timeout and the screen timeout. Why is this significant? My employer forces our email client to require a password-entry (not pattern) lock, so I can't get around that. But 2.3.3 would time out the screen in, say, 2 minutes and timeout the keyboard lock in 20 minutes (I think that was the max). So I could check email during a meeting repeatedly without ever having to re-enter my password but the screen still dimmed (saving battery life). Adding this feature would surely be handy, at least for folks like myself.
Otherwise, this is a slick piece of work. Lots of eye candy. And wireless tether works (Barnacle only, neither a stable nor the latest Google beta Wireless Tether app could get to 3G). Biggest perk is the phone's new-found performance. The difference there from the Moto 2.3.3 ROM is night and day.
Had to use Pzousa's "MotorolaOneClickRoot" and Koush's droid_2_bootstrapper to get around the miserable blocks Moto/Verizon put into this phone's ROM. Even though I'd bricked the thing as it took a good 30 minutes to complete the first boot after ROMming. But all-in-all I am glad not to be constrained on using my "unlimited" monthly data allowance how I see fit.
Keep up the great work, but please fix the camera and 3G (at a minimum) as soon as you can. I use my camera a LOT on group motorcycle trips.
Awesome stuff. THANKS!
I'm not sure where your performance gain is? I haven't seen nearly any speed gain, nor increased productivity from this rom compared to the stock gb setup. Granted I had all the bloatware frozen, so my speed was a good notch higher than pure stock would have been, but all in all, not really seeing what all the hype is.
