    Still a bit newbish so I'm in mass rom exploration stage lol Currently using illusion 2.3.7. Runs Netflix with far less lag than most which I like (gotsta watch my Walking Dead). Anywho, I always end up going back to OM-Mandylion after a bit. So I'm saying thanks much for the time you spend towards the great rom, and looking forward to what you may have in store in the future.

    Hi, my first time trying out this rom... not really sure which gapps to use. I tried downloading Cyanogenmod 7 version from Latest Version/Google Apps - CyanogenMod Wiki but the main download isn't up anymore and the Mirror keeps giving me a corrupt file (when I try to install it ZenGarden reports a bad file). Can anyone link me to the correct gapps file please?

    If you are updating to the current OM-Mandylion Build please download and flash the ZenGarden Recovery 1.7.0.1-T first, o keep from having problems with some system apps being killed or now Functional Play Store.

    Installation Instructions if coming from another rom
    1. Format sdcard from recovery and create an sd-ext partition, I recommand that the partition be no more then 10% of the total size of the sdcard.
    2. Download MyBackup Root from the Market and backup everything you need to. MyBackup Root comes pre-installed so it is easy to restore app and data backups.
    3. Make Nadroid Backup.
    4. Download ROM and place on the root of the sdcard.
    5. Boot into Recovery and format everything.
    6. Reboot and wait for phone to boot up.
    7. Go here to download the the recommended ZenGarden Recovery, pick the version to your liking and use IHO Updater to install the recovery. (this is optional, but recommended if you are going to use IHO Updater to update the ROM).
    ***** Using contradictory instructions like, placing ROM on root of the SDCARD, then afterwards formatting everything, is not good documentation. I found that I was heading down Brick Lane and actually got a soft brick. All is well now though. I backed out until later I might read all the comments to see what's happening.

    It should read format everything but sdcard

    When I was on cai i enjoyed playing a game called osmosis hd. On both this and Mirrage play store tells me it's incompatible but the games requirements are met (android 2.2 and multi touch) I'm guessing it's something in the build.prop but i dont know. Any ideas?

    Apparently play store movies is incompatible too but works on cai. That might just be it needs 4.0 but i couldn't find its requirements

    Fast-Charge USB notification widget is missing for me as well.

    Since it's the holidays, I'd also like to express my gratitude for this ROM. Of all the ROMs here, this ROM seems to be the slimmest yet is customized pretty specifically to what I'd like in a ROM. Thanks for all your work and happy holidays to E&F!
    OH one suggestion if I may, perhaps replacing Gallery with QuickPic would be nice since Gallery always seems to have issues on these phones haha

    I could be wrong, but I don't think QuickPic is open source.

    Sorry it is Closed Source, and I'd rather keep Gallery because it unlike other Photo Gallery apps, Gallery links to Google Photo Albums. Do know there is a flash zip some where that replaces Gallery with QuickPic.

    Side note, I'm working on a full ICS Recovery and it any one would like to help test it out that would be great, thank you

    Don't use Link2SD because it conficts with the adx2sd script already used, and Link2SD well be installed on the sd-ext partition where it cannot live.

    ^---+1 no need for link2sd because this rom uses sd-ext for downloaded apps already

    Also don't have Fast Charge in the notification bar (it was there when I first flashed it... can not get it to show anymore).
    Does anyone else get pretty bad battery drain? Even after calibrating twice, battery drops from 100 to 95 soon after unplugging and the battery drain from there continues.
    Other than that liking the rom so far! Great job, hopefully I can get these issues sorted out.

    You may want to check for apps that are using data and see if they are syncing in the background. As for the FastCharge Notification that is a problem with some CyanogenMod updates to SysteUI app, I well post an update to fix it in a few days, but well most likely be a full install just to keep everything consistent.

    It's not my apps, they're the same I've used for two years now on many different roms, I'm thinking maybe I have a bad install.. or my battery is going bad? Anyways, what is normal battery drain on this rom? Under default CPU settings I get about 14 hrs with VERY light usage. I get much less if I actually use my phone. Another thing, my battery reading drops by 5 until it reaches 15%. I find that weird. Not hating on the rom, I really love it otherwise! Especially the built in ext support

    The 15% thing is by design, also within the code from 100% to 15% the battery indicator is set 2% off on purpose, meaning that even if the battery is really at 57% it well read 55%. I use mine pretty heavily and get between 12 to 15 hours of usage.

    What min max settings are you using?

    My min/max is unchanged- min is 122 and max is 600. I've kept it above 600 for both in other roms and had great battery life.
    I just rebooted my phone and the battery went from 50% before to 20% after rebooting... strange! Maybe I should do a few more calibrations.

    i'd run 480 min and as close to 800 as you can max. the way our processors work its been shown its more power efficient to overclock them. i run 480/804 and can get away without charging about the same as earthnfire 12-15 hours under pretty heavy use

    Because the kernel users governors from Linux kernel 3.xx.xx. the - max of 600 - 806 (or setting the min to 360 or higher) may cause the phone to seem slow. Conservative, IntellDemand or Interactive governors I recommend setting the min to 122Mhz; setting the min any high well most like cause frequency scaling problems.
    [/BOX]
    From the OP, the IntellDemand governor is the one I use while the battery darns at about a 3% - 6% faster when phone is in use, the governor allows for better deep sleep control. You may want to see what you "Time without Signal" is.

    Even though I'm using the Kyocera Rise as my main phone, I still have my old V with me. Will clean install this ASAP with the new recovery, ROM and kernel linked in this thread. Then I'll put a minimal set of apps so it starts up from boot quickly.
