Data has sometimes not been working for me, requiring me to toggle Airplane Mode to fix.

This led to me finding an interesting and easily-reproducible bug. Open any app that uses GPS, get a lock, and then go into Airplane Mode. The moment you try and toggle back out of Airplane Mode, the phone will reboot back to WinMo.
If I boot the phone in Airplane Mode, I can get a GPS lock and then toggle out of it with no reboot occurring.
You should ALWAYS boot Android with WinMo in airplane mode... Between phone calls, text messages and the like, it's just a good idea... Plus then Android doesn't have to worry about having to deal with any of the radios in a funky state.

Re: [TESTING] XDAndroid GBX0C 2.3.7 Build

I'm getting terrible battery life, like only two or three hours, and there is a huge difference between what WinMo reports and what Android says (like WinMo will say the battery is at 5%, while Android says it's at 96%).

Mind you, I was getting poor battery life on Fryo too. I replaced the battery not too long ago, while still on Fryo, so I don't think the battery itself is bad. I'm planning to wipe and reload GB and run it for a while with no widgets or any other customization, and see if some widget is the problem. Any other suggestions?

As the issue of poor battery life has been beaten into the ground in the android rom threads; I sugest that if battery life is important do not use an SD based android rom on this phone.


Try something that has been worked on in the last year like this nand rom http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1965459

It's easy. Just replace the zImage and modules-###-whatever.tar.gz files. Nothing else needed.

Re: [TESTING] XDAndroid GBX0C 2.3.7 Build

Oh I hate bumping a "dead" thread, but does anyone have the newest kernel for this? The links I saw weren't working anymore. Thanks in advance

edit: nvm, I found it over at xda
