    So after a very long time trying to build up the guts to actually root my phone and flash a rom I finally did it. I followed the videos from qbking77 and they were super easy to follow so I did it and I'm done. I'm running this aokp now and I love the interface. Silky smooth and really easy on the eyes. Thumbs up for that. But I have 2 questions. When I'm trying to send a long text message and in converts to mms it won't send it for me. Why?
    Also, battery life actually sucks pretty much for me. I was hoping to get a days worth of battery out of it at least. Since that's what I'm looking for am I just looking at the wrong rom and maybe should have chosen another or are there some settings that I may have to tweak to get it working the way that I wanted it to?
    Oh btw, when responding try and "dumb down" your answers. lol I don't fully understand everything that I'm doing yet but I'm getting there. Thanks!
    Download APN shortcut from the market. When you open it click the button next to "Sprint" and make sure it's green. That'll fix you MMS.

    As far as battery, the best thing to do is use the auto 3g off option in the rom control menu. It'll tell you that its dangerous but I've been using it for 2 weeks not one issue and my battery is great.

    do u think chis41g's kernel will help with the 4g "unknown" error? this rom would be perfect if i wasn't having this problem. the 4g "unknown" error wouldn't be so bad, but for some reason it effects my 3g also. when ever i get the error i don't have any data even tho it's showing 3g.
    i downloaded chris14g's latest kernel labeled control12. i believe he is still in the testing phase, but so far 4g & 3g working flawlessly! there is still a bug where the synaptic touch backlight doesn't work but i had it turned off before.

    FIX: download his latest kernel from his thread here: [Kernel][AOSP] Safe CWM6/TWRP - xda-developers

    place in SD Card, using a safe recovery:

    wipe dalvik cache
    wipe cache partition
    flash kernel zip

    reboot

    thank chris41g for taking time and effort to fix our problems (not his)

    I had mms hang before. I believe my 3g wouldn't connect because of the unknown 4g error. I usually got it working by clearing messaging app cache and phone app cache . . . if u get 4g unknown error try fixing that first

    Is this recovery safe to flash another kernel? Should I mobile Odin? What's the best way and best kernel?

    It seems there is no way to disable or turn down the haptic feedback. I have set it to "0". It still seems to be at full.
    Device Options>Haptic>Vibrator Intensity
    I have looked through the setting and Rom Control. Have I missed a hidden setting somewhere? Running the latest Stable 2 with chris41g's control 12 kernel.

    Same. For now it is either full haptic or no haptic. It's a kernel issue.

    Love this ROM, but aside from the previously said bugs this is a daily driver for me, hopefully stable 3 is released to address these problems

    Installed the new RC13 TWRP kernel. Still no backlighting on the keys but phenomenally stable with great battery life.

    Should be able to try out 4g tomorrow w/ new kernel.

    Curious if anyone is seeing better battery life by setting the cpu speed at a max of 1000 vs. 1200.
    Also does anyone have any advice on which setting to try for undervolting? Higher vs. Lower settings in regards to battery life.
    I remember seeing a new app that would let you play around with using single or Dual cores. Anyone remember this app?

    Just pertaining to AOKP.

    Is anyone having 4G problems? I used to have a good 9-11 MBPS download and 1.5 MBPS upload on stock EL29 and now I get .6 MBPS download and .4 MBPS upload.

    Tried FF11, EL29, and FF18 all three have given me speeds that went below or equal to the speeds that I specified. Actually slower than 3G, whereas I get 800KBPS-1MBPS.
    Just to clarify, I went back to EL29 and got speeds back to normal. I am unsure how well the modem goes with this particular ROM.
    Edit: I have attached a screenshot of the recent 4G speed test.

    I love being a born-again n00b! I'm new to this device and the Samsung way of doing things.

    I have rooted FF18, CWM-agat, nandroid backup complete. I understand the AOSP process and am comfortable flashing the ROM, kernel, and Gapps. So what's with the modem? This was something that we didn't mess with over on the LG side. Do I already have that in place with FF18? Where do I get it if not? Please help.
    EDIT: Never mind, I figured it out.

    Also, which version of the recommended kernel works best?

    Thanks in advance!

    Yeah, I've been having the same exact problem. My 4G hasn't worked properly actually since I first flashed my phone with CM9. I recently went back to stock EL29 and it works perfectly again, but what I find strange is that even when I went back to stock FF18, it still didn't work, it only worked on EL29. I want 4G speeds AND this ROM, but it seems I can't have both, or any ICS ROM for that matter.

    Well does that mean less support for this particular ROM? (sorry if the question sounded informal and just plain stupid lol)

    If you ever need a tester for any new stable releases, I'll volunteer Props to you for making this 99.99% stable for a daily driver!
