    Just a very quick question coming from someone completely new to Android phones. When installing a custom ROM (such as Altered Beast V4), what procedures would one take when installing an update (V5) or possibly even a completely different custom ROM altogether? Does it necessitate a complete reformat/reset of the phone (before/after installing), or it it as simple as overwriting certain files?

    I uninstalled droid essentials and charged my phone last night but the phone still gave me the annoying battery full notification. I double checked the hidden menus thing and that is correctly set. Anyone have a suggestion?

    Maybe a reflash. I'm not having the issue. did you clean the cache when you flashed?

    Ok, just gonna throw this out there again

    Functional changes I would love to see in V5:

    1. Lower minimum brightness (screen is WAY too bright even on lowest settings) - this will save battery.
    2. Volume button track skipping - Hold to skip tracks, press to change volume.

    Pretty pretty please

    what are asking is not as easy as you think. the first request is not an option. messing with the minium brightness is how phones get permanantly bricked.

    the second, i can look into. it wont be in v5, period. i cant test what im doing, so it will be a while. but i will keep it in mind.

    Its personal icons I made from random png pictures I found on the net...i may switch to go launcher which will allow me to include the icons in the rom. Launcher pro will not let me distribute their launcher modified (i don't know why )..try an app called privacy filter, it will overlay a black transparency on the screen lowering the brightness.

    Understand Mike. Sorry, I didn't know how difficult it would be, these features have been on my D1 for awhile now so I figured it would be easy. I apologize.

    Installed Altered Beast yesterday before work. Incredibly pleased with the boost in performance.
    I'll be sending a donation as soon as I see my paycheck this weekend~

    On a different note. I'm still incredibly new to this whole installing a different kernel on a droid phone. After using Odin to set it up, the phone is already rooted correct?
    Also I've reading around where can I read up on the benefits of Launcher Pro?
    ::Edit::
    Is there a benefit to paying for it? ((Launcher not AB..))

    hey no need to apologize.

    im a themer, not a developer. i am learing, so i hope to be able to provide you guys with all kinds of neat stuff. but it will take some time. not only do i have to learn how to develope stuff, i have to do it for a phone i cant test. hang in there. im working on it.

    I'll give that a try. But I did not clear the cache. I don't know how; I saw DroidX's method for doing it for the market, but which cache should I be looking for to clear and when should I do it?

    After the flash, when it boots into recovery, you select clear cache there before you reboot.

    I'm running Altered Beast V4 and love it. Already donated and will keep doing so as the versions continue to roll out. Had a question. On my Charge, using Spare Parts under Battery History, I'm seeing the delta between "Running" and "Screen On" consistently between 15-16 percentage points. For example, currently my phone is showing Screen On of 10% and Running of 26%. Obviously something is keeping the phone's processor active and nothing is showing up as particlularly draining under "Partial Wake Usage". See the pictures below. This is a concern, as on my previous Android phones, particularly the Samsung Epic, the delta between Running and Screen On was only 4-6 percentage points. I'm still not satisfied with the battery life, despite it being miles ahead of my Thunderbolt, so I'd like to get to the bottom of this. Any help? Thanks!

    PS...I'm in New York City, a very solid LTE coverage zone.

    Wow, awesome. And wicked easy. Just donated. And I will donate more if I can figure out how to get the Mobile Hotspot to work. I click on the button and it just closes the program... Maybe because it's Verizon's program? I saw this: android-wifi-tether - Wireless Tether for Root Users - Google Project Hosting

    Is that what I need to download and start using in order to create my own wifi hotspot that bypasses the Verizon settings?

    Nice job DroidXcon!! Love your rom but me and some others in the area are having issues with 4G dropping off for no reasons. I reviewed the logcats for any errors but couldn't find anything besides indication of the radio changing. It's weird, I Odin the phones back to stock and it works with no issues with the 4G dropping, anybody in the Vancouver, WA area having the same issues?

    P.S.
    What's the IRC channel that the peeps here are using cause #charge on irc.androids.net is pretty much dead

    I live right outside of Vancouver, Wa in the hills of Hockinson, so I'm just out of the 4G coverage at home - as soon as I get to the bottom of the hill I get 4G coverage again, so I just have it turned off for now until they expand the coverage a bit. I'll turn it back on, though and see if I notice the 4G cutting out when I'm not at home.
