Yesterday I rooted my phone and flashed BB 0.7.5 and I've had my phone completely freeze up, can't receive calls, buttons wont respond and I have to pull my battery to reboot the phone. I'm not sure what exactly is causing it, and it has only happened twice so far (both today). I wanted to ask if anyone else has had this happen. I have a nandroid backup of right before I flashed the ROM, should I roll back and try again or use a different ROM?
New release from Pete. No info at all, but what the hell. I'm going to give it a shot and see what happens. Charging my phone now (was almost dead, and don't want to update with a close to discharged battery). This is "Beta", so we will see what happens.
so I took the plunge, because of the soon-coming upgrade that might wipe out root function for a while.I rooted, set up recovery, made a nandroid and then installed bugless beast 0.7.5 and then bought setcpu and temp monitor and root explorer.It may just be me but not only do I see no real improvement (set my profiles in setcpu) but I actually see it hang up from time to time. After a phone call the screen will go black for 1 or 2 seconds and then the call log screen will appear. Hardly 800mhz style if I'm reading everyone's experiences correctly.Should I do a complete nandroid style recovery? Will this be a better install than just using the update.zip?
Bugless Beast boot animation in the style of carlz28!
Installation instructions: (copied from cole20444, I was too lazy to type it out myself)
Using Root Explorer: Mount your droid to your PC and place the bootanimation.zip file at the root of your sdcard. Then using Root Explorer navigate to your sdcard, long press on the bootanimation.zip file until a popup menu appears. Select "Move" or "Copy". Once you select one, "Paste" and "Cancel" buttons will appear near the bottom of your screen. Now, press the back button to move to the root of your file system. Then navigate to data/local/ and then press "Paste". You'll be prompted to overwrite the existing bootanimation.zip. Press "OK". Then reboot.
Using ADB: Download the zip file and place it in the tools directory of the Android SDK. Mount your droid. Then using a command prompt on your PC "cd" to the Android/tools directory and type the command: adb push bootanimation.zip /data/local Hit enter, and once this command is done processing type reboot and hit enter.
I searched first but couldn't find any basic help on ROM Manager in one place.
I rooted my Droid using SPRecovery and all seems ok with that. Used Droid-life.com video tutorial. Now looking to install Bugless Beast 1.0. The Droid-Life.com tutorial I watched uses ROM Manager Premium, so I bought and installed it. It doesn't seem to work correctly or there is a user error.
The only thing lit and available in ROM Manager Premium is the RECOVERY section (Flash ClockworkMod Recovery and Reboot to Recovery). All the other sections, like ROM Management, are unavailable.
I tried to Flash ClockworkMod Recovery but I received "An error occurred while flashing your recovery" Any tips on where I need to go? Should I just do an SPRecovery installation of BB1.0 and forget about ROM Manager? I am a total newbie. Is there a How To on ROM Manager out there?
I went to the latest update which has night mode and pinch zoom on the maps (2.1 ported, woot) - and my Trapster won't work.I know that there may be issues with other programs using GMaps, is anyone else with this version having map problems with any other program and 7.4? I like the pinch and I love the night mode, but I am back to 7.2 now.
I recently installed Bugless Beast v1.1 @ 1Ghz. I've noticed that the memory available has dropped down to the 60's and 70's when I wipe everything. Bugless Beast is fine, whether I have 40 memory or 60. On Stock 2.1, it would go up to 130 Max. So what's up? Why is my available memory so low?
Those who have tried both (2.1 roms) can you comment on the differences? I've always run Pete's (using his new 2.1 ERE25 now) but my buddy recently went over to SS and says his battery life is A LOT better.
I haven't heard much discussion on the major differences in these two Roms (besides the authors).
With my D1. 2 days ago I was running Bugless Beast v0.5 with ChevyNo1 1.1ghz kernel. Then suddenly my market crashes, so I restore back to my factory rooted droid, when I try to install or go to reboot into recovery it says"error occured while requesting permissions". Now when I try to restore it won't even reboot the phone. Need help otherwise I'm gonna try get a D2.
Iv'e done alot of searching for the answer to my question with no luck. So I finally rooted and downloaded ROMmanager and installed bugless beast. I saw that there is a new WirelessTether app in my drawer. When I turn it on, it shows up as wifi on my ipod touch. Is this the same thing as a wifi hotspot?
I'm having FC with bugless beast anytime I try a long press of the magnifying glass to initiate a Voice search.This does not happen with the Voice Keyboard or even entering voice input in Google maps.Has this happened to anybody else?
I have tried to ask this question in several threads, with no avail so I figure I make my own thread for it.
I would like the 2.0 slider on Bugless Beast, but can't find the instructions for it. I know they have the link on the Bugless Beast alldroid thread, but I dont know what to do with "-Patcher 2.0 Lock Screen with Vibrate Tweak". Should I run the file "update.zip" as reboot recovery over the rom?
I bought the car dock and I do not like it. I wish you could just set the phone in the car dock and have it charge without plugging in the charging cable separately. Would it be possible to use the multimedia dock as a car dock? It seems like the only difference is the polarity of the magnet. Can that easily be reversed (cut out and turned around)? I already have an adapter to plug the USB cable into. 3M makes a great double-sided automobile tape that would hold the dock to the dashboard. Anyone with a multimedia dock willing to try it out and report back?
I love the multimedia dock except for one thing, it's too bright at night. The light bulb icon does make dimmer and more relaxed, but the buttons on the bottom of the phone are lit up to full brightness. Anyone know of any apps or options within the phone's software that allows me to turn off the buttons?
Also, anyone have any app recommendations for setting notifications? I'd like my phone to ring at night only when it's in its cradle. Right now, to keep it from chirping with every email, I have to set it to silent, which also turns the phone ringer off.
I have not seen anyone mention anything about this.... What I am looking for is another way to add new widgets to the multimedia dock. Specifically, I have "Beautiful Widgets" installed, with the nice "Silent Widget" on my home, but I would like that to be a widget on my "Multimedia Home". Is there a way around this, or does someone actually have to create widgets specifically for that screen?
I got my Droid at the beginning of July and I really liked the idea behind the multimedia dock, but I thought $30 was a lot for something that did so little. Once I found out that media mode could be accessed with a magnet, I started looking at other people's designs for home-made docks. I used Crayola Air-Dry clay to hold the plug in place as well as make the phone fit perfectly. I wanted to be able to drop my phone into the dock quickly, it looked like other designs require you to plug in the phone, then set it in the dock.
