Anyone have locking issues with this ROM?
I had horrible issues on v1.0 so flashed v1.3 (wipe+reset done 3X each before flashing).
v1.3 seems to lock once every 1 or 2 days.
Anything I need to do with that lagfix thing?
Any suggestions would be awesome! Love the phone but this drives me pretty nuts. My crappy Eris didn't do this at all after rooting/flashing.

More details.. If you are running OTB kernel 1.4 (came with CommROM 1.3) - that may be the issue - I had lockups also and rolled back to OTB 1.3..

I ran evil fascinate for a few days and had major problems, i had frequent lockups, several sleeps of death, even after a few data wipes and fresh installs it game me issues. But i think it may have been the kernel that comes with EF. I'm back on KangBang now which gave me one sleep of death friday. After reading about voltage that might be too low causing issues i loaded imnuts' standard voltage voodoo kernel and everything appears to be great so far. Ran all weekend with no lockups or SOD.
I might give EF another try but KangBang has been terrific with the standard voltage kernel. And it runs like a top.

could I flash it over my current KBCR v1.3 voodoo setup?
What would I have to do? Just download the zip file, put on SD card, NANDroid backup, reboot into recovery, factory/data wipe, wipe cache, wipe dalvik, and then choose the ROM from SD card and flash it? Or is it something complicated? Any un-voodoo-ing?

Obviously those are the two of choice right now, and I am torn between them. Had both on the phone for over a week each, and they have their pluses and minuses. As stated before, it comes down to personal preference.

I had freezing issues every other day it seemed and I also had issues with the feature that allows you to send text messages to a custom group of people....wouldn't allow me to select my 20 desired contacts and send message to them. For example, in 'Contacts' I would select my group that contained my 'Family Contacts', then I would select 'Send Message'. I would go through the list and select say 10 people and when I pressed the 'Send' button (which takes you to the screen where you can type message to send), all the contacts would be missing in the address bar. I would then have to go in manually and add each contact and send that way (call me lazy if you will, but when you get used to a feature that saves you hassle, it's a pain when it doesn't work). Then came the next issue, sending messages the manual way still had issues when sending to multiple contacts....2-3 out of 10 would randomly fail to send due to "improper formating" or something (I forget now). Anyway, got tired of it and switched back to Super_frankenclean v2.9 with the EC01 radio and love it. I do have the itch now, so I'm thinking about trying out KANGBANG now.

I didn't have any major issues with Kangbang. I never tried Evil Fascination. I was going to, but went with MiuiWiz instead. They are all good roms, imo. Just depends on prefrence.

Which ROM has better GPS performance? My fascinate cannot for the life of me lock onto a GPS signal, and yes, I did wipe after installing CommROM. I know for certain that it is not a hardware issue. When I fresh installed CommROM, I used GPS Aids to clear and redownload the LTO data... This method worked. Every time my GPS failed to lock on, I followed the aforementioned procedure and afterwards got full and perfect GPS location. The problem, was however, that if I didn't use the GPS for an hour or two, the process needed to be repeated. I was willing to live with this minor thing, as the GPS worked perfectly. Now, however, after a week or two of using CommROM, this method has stopped working, and I can no longer get a lock. So, I know that it is not a hardware issue, as a software tweak used to make it work perfectly. Does anybody have better GPS luck with any other ROM? Thanks!
