    Hello, Does this new updated 20110326 Rom have MMS working now? In Romrepo it's marked as yes. Can anyone confirm?

    Nevermind my bad, I was looking at the HTC info instead of the V. The answer is no it doesnt work. My outgoing MMS died on mine a few days ago too. Too bad!

    I would be the first on to say it's impossible to get more than 24 hours on a single charge on this rom, but I have achieved it. I'm going 12th hours with 76% with moderate to heavy use. My secret? Use Tasker to disable 3G once screen is off and to turn it back on when screen is unlocked. I don't have it set to turn on when screen turns on because sometimes I turn my screen on to check the time. So that would be pointless. Try it guys.

    I was doing this since the day I bought the phone and it made a huge difference. Now I have this ROM. Today I used it for 9 hours taking lots pics at the fair and surfing at times and had 75% left when I got home! Cutting off 3G is the best way to get the most life out of your battery. Regarding turning your phone on to check the time, as long as you dont unlock it the 3G will not come on if you set 3G ON only when unlocking phone with Tasker. You can see the time in the phone lock screen.

    As some have noticed this Rom drains the heck out of the battery in WiFi. My phone gets pretty hot too. I know its normal to warm up but the drain is pretty fast. I go from 100% to 90% in 30-40 mins of WiFi regardless if I am downloading or surfing, it just has to be on. I hope some fix comes out for this because 2.2 wasnt that bad.

    It's odd too because having Wifi turn off when screen shuts off is a built in Android feature and it shouldn't eat up the battery. It should mirror what disabling 3G does... to an extent. Odd!

    You can off 3G with power control widget or notification widget as well. Data on in bad service area = death of battery.

    No my Wifi stays on when screen locks unless I was to add it in Tasker same as my 3G shut off. I was just commenting it uses alot more battery then 3G especially on GB, alot more then Froyo.

    I know, I had that before but I kept leaving it on so the auto on and off in Tasker really helps. I can always disable Tasker when I want it to stay on while in screen lock mode, Like when I am wifi tethering. It all works perfect, i cant complain at all.

    How do you downgrade to a 2.2 rom, and change the recovery on this. Everytime i try, it sends me to a blue fastboot screen instead of the recovery i was tryin to instal...

    http://forum.androidcentral.com/opti...-features.html Not sure how to post the nicer looking links but this thread a bit below this one tells you how to flash a new recovery, really easy. going back to 2.2 just takes flashing a 2.2 rom just like the one you flashed to get to this one.

    I use the program "WIFI Keep Alive" from the market. It lets you choose what the wifi does, I.e. stay on with screen off, go off with screen off, or stay on only on power plug. It works great and saves me a ton of battery. Last night I used it and before I go to bed I would lose like 20%. I only lost 5% with this enabled.

    This is a built in feature of android. Goto Wi-fi Settings...Menu...advanced...wifi sleep policy

    Bluetooth seems to have more problems then just the headset. I cant get it to pair with my windows 7 desktop bluetooth. The passkey numbers are different and Bluesoleil doesnt let me change it. I guess bluetooth is pretty useless with this ROM. ?

    Bluetooth worked fine on this rom when transfering files to another phone

    This has been addressed so many times.
    Posting you need a rom god to get it working might make you feel better, but in reality its just filling the thread with more drivel.

    First off the way Virgin sends mms is almost at pentagon encryption levels. Some of the best devs have took a crack at it and walked away scratching their heads. Its a very proprietary method and nobody wants to spend the amount of time required.
    Second if you need mms soooooooooooo bad the best bet is to go back to a stock rom. Otherwise tell people to email you the pictures and funny messages at your email. It is pretty much the only way right now.
