    Default Cm10 system ui keeps crashing

    Another user on Android Central reported this issue previously but didn't get much help. Basically, every few hours the system ui keeps crashing no matter what I do

    I was on the cm10 stable from November then I just flashed to a nightly, and I'm having the same issue

    It's soo annoying, no status bar, no nav keys and the only way to reset it is to reboot your phone

    The stable was a clean flash, and I just dirty flashed the nightly this morning, both have the exact same issue. Does anyone have any suggestions? I really like cm10 but this is ridiculous

    this is gonna be a looooooooooooooong day, tried to dirty flash back to an old stable, and the cyanogen mod boot screen just kept spinning, so i popped out the battery, booted into recovery and clean flashed it

    now im going to spend the next hour and a half restoring texts and apps to my phone, then signing into apps

    and to top it off, i was in the middle of a sms conversation

    this is going to take forever

    i was just beginning to get comfortable with my new stable and all that too, now i gotta restore an old one just to see if i will stop getting that damn error

    Cm10 is good, but if I were you, I'd try out wicked sensations

    If you are inexperienced in flashing stock with the wicked sensations rom. It will keep you happy and busy for a while.

    How to flash ROMs in custom recovery

    If you are going from a rom to the same rom that has been updated you often don't need to wipe data / factory reset and can skip that step. Additionally you can go even further by formatting system, data, and cache from the mounts and storage menu.

    1. From the home menu, select "wipe cache partition" and confirm by selecting yes.
    2. Select advanced menu.
    3. Select "wipe dalvik cache" and then confirm by selecting yes.
    4. Return to the home menu
    5. Select wipe data / factory reset and select yes to confirm (This will delete all of your apps, passwords, settings and accounts.
    6. Select "install zip from sdcard"
    7. Select "choose zip from sd card" or "choose zip from external sdcard".
    8. Select the file you want to flash and select yes to confirm. (if you don't see it, swipe the screen or use your volume up and down to scroll up and down )
    9. After it completes, go back to the home menu and select reboot system now.

    Wicked Sensations JB v1.2 - CLICK HERE
    Dev Host Mirror

    MD5 SUM for Full Rom- a7219199658b79a3a5bc353da3fb43d5

    V1.2 UPDATE ZIP
    FOR THOSE OF YOU ALREADY ON V1.1
    JUST WIPE CACHE AND DALVIK CACHE AND FLASH THIS IN RECOVERY TO UPDATE TO V1.2
    IF YOU HAVE ANY ISSUES DOWNLOAD FULL ROM AND DO A CLEAN INSTALL
    Wicked Sensations Update Zip from v1.1 to v1.2 - CLICK HERE
    MD5 SUM FOR UPDATE ZIP - dc366bcc23968aeb4680e5327ab86cc6

    Follow my steps above but skip the factory reset.... You won't lose data. Just wipe the cache and dalvik.

    I'm almost there... so does it matter if i install release verison 1.2 of Wicked or start right from the very first version?
    ok so skip step 5. Select wipe data / factory reset and select yes to confirm (This will delete all of your apps, passwords, settings and accounts.

    Yes, there are 2 links in the thread. Choose the full version and you will be good.

    As for flashing it, you will only lose your data if you wipe data/factory reset. If you only wipe cache and dalvik you won't lose your data. You can do it this way but if you have any issues you will need to go back and do the factory reset.

    A few final Questions, so sorry but just want to get this right... The post also talks about firmware LJ7, what if i currently have that as my custom rom - do i need to also install it?
    It also talks about doing a Nandroid back up, how do i do that or what app would I need? In terms of 4.1.2 or 4.2 Apps are some of them also on this WS ROM?

    And finally what if for some reason i wanted to go back to original stock rom and unroot - is there a way to do that as well

    You've been of great help... I've been cutting and pasting all on a separate Word Doc for me to follow
    Thanks for all your assistance

    I think it's taking about the baseband which is your radio or modern. Go to about phone. If your baseband is already LJ7 then you should be ok without flashing they firmware.

    There are several 4.2 apps available for wicked sensations. Look in the kuban updater after installing.

    BTW... this should be posted in the ws thread. My lunch is over and there cracking down on personal phone use. I will explain the nandroid backup process later. There should be an example in the sticky thread how to flash in custom recovery.

    Not a problem... and YES I am on LJ7 so that solves that question. Regarding the apps, then will look for after flashing WS and in kuban updater.
    If you can let me know later on the nandroid (only makes a mention on making a nandroid not what app to use) and i think i should be set to go afterwards

    much appreciated... enjoy rest of your days. J

    A nandroid backup is not in an app. It is an option in custom (CWM) recovery. Follow the link and there is a step by step instructions for completing the nandroid backup in the very first post.

    Yes there is way to go back to stock. But I will tell you up front it will wipe the phone to how it was when you bought it. Make sure you save you important stuff to the external sd before you do it.

    The return to stock guide is stickied with the how to root thread.

    Yes, i just found it... I found the nandroid backup as well as UnRoot and return to stock post - Just wanted to have all the information handy just in case. I'll make sure i back up all my data. I've created for myself a Word doc with all the important info regardint Root, Recovery, Rom from the links posted before.
    In terms of backing up Apps, is Titanium my best option?
