    Here's something I posted over at XDA.. please take a look and share your thoughts.

    You jinxed me, I hadn't gotten the blue battery until I just read your post and looked at the phone. I have to say I had grown to love he red circle with the percentage inside!

    Edit: I think it stays blue when fully charged, then goes to the red circle when less then 98%
    Nah, it'll turn blue at any percentage, it just seems to happen randomly. It just went from the red circle to the blue battery bar as I was uploading the following image



    I feel like I'm still getting somewhat crappy battery life. My battery dropped from 100% to 88% overnight while simply idling. Now, the battery is at 79% and I've only been awake for the past 1.5 hours. The phone was barely used during the past 1.5 hours and it somehow managed to drop almost 10%. This is getting annoying.

    History of phone:

    - Received stock phone
    - Accepted OTA update to ED2
    - Flashed the rooted ED1 image using Odin (Can't remember which one!)
    - Flashed AB v1 using Odin, I believe this also installed voodoo and CWM
    - Flashed AB v2 using Odin
    - Flashed AB v3 using Odin
    - Flashed AB v4 using Odin
    - Downloaded PBJT kernel, AB v4.1.1 and loaded to SD card
    - Backed up my apps and data using Titanium Backup
    - Booted into CWM
    - Sat there nervously for 5 minutes staring at CWR hoping that I didn't run into problems
    - Wiped data/factory reset
    - Wiped cache partition
    - Installed .zip from SD, chose specific .zip file and installed PBJT kernel
    - Installed .zip from SD, chose specific .zip file and installed AB v4.1.1
    - Pulled battery after installs were complete (no back button in CWR)
    - Inserted battery after 10-15 seconds and booted up
    - I don't think the british lady spoke! So I'm not sure exactly what happened
    - Charge booted to home screen and data was wiped as planned
    - Verified that kernel was installed
    - Verified ROM was installed (it's pretty obvious if it's installed, but how come the phone build doesn't change in the Phone Info section? Other ROMs i used will list the ROM name/build number within the Phone Info section.
    - Restored everything using Titanium Backup
    - Uninstalled a TON of crap that I restored with Titanium Backup, this killed my battery a decent bit and it should be noted that the App Management section was running VERY slow at first. The app icons wouldn't load and I had to exit App Management after uninstalling an app because the "Loading..." window wouldn't go away after uninstalling/returning to the installed App list. After I uninstalled 10 or 20 items, the App Management section started to load very quickly and all of the app icons loaded fine. I was able to uninstall more applications without having to exit the App Management section. woohoo

    I've been using the phone with the PBJT kernel and AB v4.1.1 since yesterday and noticed that the battery drained relatively quickly. The ironic thing is, I wiped everything and installed PBJT/AB v4.1.1 to improve battery life. FML. The battery just drained from 78-76% while basically idling. I turned the screen on a couple of time in the past 20-30 minutes, but that's it. And it died a few percentage. wtf.

    Also, Gmail keeps FCing on me.

    One more thing.. OTA update for i510.EE4? What is this? I never got this message after using AB v1, v2, v3, v4... Now that I wiped everything and installed PBJT and AB v4.1.1 this popped up. I'm assuming this is coincidence and that this update is new. I don't think it's the ED2 OTA.

    Ahh, battery just went down to 75. I'm seriously going to stab someone in the face.

    I rooted back to EE1, let the EE2 OTA update, installed the EE4 file, and reinstalled AB 4.1.1. Seems to be working just fine, other then the bars not showing 5 with the new update (probably an easy fix in AB).

    Hmmmm, scratch that, after reinstalling AB, although the Broadband says I am on EE4, none of the new features work (Mobile Hotspot, one click call from call log).

    - Wallpaper found in HD Wallpaper application\

    Droidxcon:

    Lagfix is definitely enabled. I guess I'll wipe the cache partition, wipe data/factory reset and reinstall the kernel and ROM. Figured EE4 was an update, but what does it update exactly?

    I thought the wipe data/factory reset wasn't working.. Did I just get lucky the first time? Should I not try it again?

    EDIT: My Cell Standby percentage has gone up noticeably.

    EDIT2: Just wiped data/factory reset and wiped cache partition again. Installed PBJT's kernel then the AB v4.1.1 ROM successfully. Rebooted phone and didn't hear the British lady again. It booted to the home screen after a couple of minutes and the Setup Wizard FC'd and I had to pull the battery. Now my phone is stuck on the boot animation and I am not hearing any british Voodoo lady.

    For now I am on ED2 and have EE4 on my sdcard, but I can happily wait for DroidXcon's update tonight before going forward. I want to give him time to incorporate the features into his ROM.

    By doing a Titanium restore, don't you think whatever was possible causing a battery issue would just come back from your Titanium backup?
    You know, that did occur to me... I ended up downloading most of the apps from the market, but restored a few via Titanium that didn't come back by themselves. I think I have too many moving pieces to make a qualified judgement... I'll try again after I get back in town on Monday.

    So far today I've been off charger for 3 hours, have done a few minutes of web surfing (3G), a few short calls and a few texts. Sitting at 88%

    Edit: Since I'm in a 3G only area, I should probably just switch to CDMA only mode, yes? Although I'm not complaining about battery problems, this would only help I should think.

    It'll bounce back and forth randomly. I haven't been able to find any consitency.

    Copying this over from XDA as I need help, fast:

It booted to the home screen after a couple of minutes and the Setup Wizard FC'd and I had to pull the battery. Now my phone is stuck on the boot animation and I am not hearing any british Voodoo lady. (boot animation is not going nuts like it does on the custom kernels, but I think I remember it going nuts the first time it booted up after reinstalling the kernel and AB v4.1.1

    EDIT3: Ok, so I'm kinda F'd at the moment. I tried wiping the data/factory reset and wiped the cache partition then reinstalled the kernel and AB again and the same thing happened. After installing the kernel and ROM, I pulled the battery to reboot. The phone booted up showing the Samsung logo followed by the tweaked out boot animation. I DID NOT hear the british lady's voice. The phone eventually booted to the home screen (like it did in the first EDIT) but the Setup Wizard FC'd again. I couldn't do anything with the device. The Home button does nothing. However, the notification bar is there and the rest of the screen is black. I received a text message and was able to open it up through the notification bar. SMS app opened fine and I was able to respond to the text message. I tried hitting Home again, nothing. If you hold in Home, I can bring up the recent app list.

    I pulled the battery and did a reboot. Now my phone is stuck on the boot animation again, and the boot animation is NOT tweaking out. Not only that, but the phone is definitely past the boot animatoin process as I'm able to "unlock" the phone by sliding the invisible slider. I can also slide the Volume slider that is on the lock screen, but I cannot see anything but the boot animation. I'm able to lock the screen and unlock it. What is going on?! If I pull the battery and attempt another reboot, it does the same thing.

    If I boot into CWR and wipe data/factory reset and wipe cache partition then reinstall the kernel and AB rom then Setup Wizard FC's on boot. If I reboot again, then I get stuck at the boot animation. The same thing continues to happen every time I wipe and reinstall through CWR.

    I feel like I posted enough information for someone with a brain to be able to figure out what is going on here

    It will not work with AB. You would have to flash back to EE1 (stock).

    In that case I'll stay on AB until a version incorporating EE4 comes out. Thank you ^^;
    Is there a way to completely dismiss the notice? I haven't seen an option to turn if off...

    did you disable voodoo lagfix before you did all of this flashing/resetting/etc? that might be the cause of you having all of these problems.

    No, I didn't, because it originally worked fine the first time I loaded wiped cache/data/factory reset and installed PBJT/AB v4.1.1 and I didn't disable voodoo then. Weird?

    I'll try it now. Wish me luck

    EDIT: Just pulled the battery and booted into CWR. Disabled lagfix and the system/lagfix and pulled the battery. Tried booting into CWR but it's showing the Samsung screen and the British lady is talking.. I'm not sure if she's disabling the lagfix or what?

    EDIT2: Yeah, it just disbaled lagfix and went back to CWR. I'm going to try wiping and reinstalling PBJT and AB v4.1.1

    EDIT3: Crap, it booted up but the Setup Wizard is FC'ing again.

    Can I just flash this crap back to stock using Odin? Which stock image should I use? And should I reboot into CWR to disable lagfix again before flashing via Odin?

    yah, maybe try disabling voodoo lagfix

    then through ODIN, flash ED2-to-ED1 kernal, to get you back to stock, with no root.

    then OTA update to ED2, stock.

    then OTA update to EE4 (or manually update it, via update via update.zip)

    Read my last edit. Setup Wizard is FCing. If I reboot, I'll probably get stuck at the boot animation like I was before. Yes, voodoo was disabled.

    Haha, the EE4 update just popped up OTA. What would happen if I installed this?

  22. reflekt2099's Avatar
    well, if you're stock ED2 with no root, and no voodoo lagfix,

    then i don't see why you couldn't update to EE4, since technically you're stock.

    or you can wait till droidxcon releases his updated ROM and see how it interacts with EE4.

    Well, no luck. I disabled voodoo and booted back into CWR. I then wiped the cache/data/factory reset and installed the PBJT kernel then the AB v4.1.1 ROM.

    The same crap happens. The phone boots but the Setup Wizard immediately FC's. I'm able to click Next on the Select Language screen, then it goes to the next step and says that my phone is already activated and is ready for use. At that point, the Setup Wizard FCs and I get nothing but the notification bar and a black screen. I can hold Home to bring up recent apps and go to the Task Manager, but nothing is running. Nothing.

    If someone sends me a text message I can pull down the notification bar and open the text message. SMS launches without issues and I can even respond to the text. If I hit Home, I get nothing.

    If I reboot, then the phone never boots, it just sits on the damn boot animation. I have a feeling something isn't getting completely wiped. Or maybe I need to redownload the files?

    I just want to flash back to ANYTHING using Odin. But now Odin is failing stating that it can't find the PIT partition.

    were you able to flash ED2-to-ED1 and get it back to stock? when you did this, were you able to use your phone, with out any problems, and receive the OTA update to ED2?

    also, why install PBJT kernel and AB v4.1.1 ROM, when it currently doesn't work with EE4? i'd suggest getting your phone back to stock ED2, and just wait till tonight or tomorrow so you can then flash a voodoo kernel and then a ROM that works with EE4.

    I'm not on the stock ED2. I was on AB v4.1.1

    I haven't been stock since the day I got the phone. I've been running AB since then and have had no issues. Today, I decided to try wiping cache/data/factory reset through CWR and reinstalled the PBJT kernel and AB v4.1.1 rom because my battery life was pretty bad. Other users said wiping and reinstalling helped out their battery life greatly. So, I went and tried that and now I'm stuck in this mess.

    Odin isn't successful in flashing anything. I keep getting "no PIT partition"

    As for EE4, I don't care for it at this moment, not until it's semi-perfected with custom roms/kernels.
