    most likely a typo
    Yes sorry guys it was a typo. With the bazillion base versions our phone has had, and now with the Boost Mobile base versions, even I get confused sometimes.

    On that note, play with all the modems you want, but I would be extremely surprised if it solves the LOS mystery. I hate to keep beating a dead horse, but my money is still on it being 100% kernel related.

    Long time lurker, first or second time poster. Firstly, thank you for all the great work on the smooth experience and overall awesome feel of Jellybean on the Epic Touch.

    Quick question: for stability issues, I'm forced to move back to CM9. Would I have to wipe all data as well as the cache/dalvik? Or could I possibly skip data and clean out just the cache? Reason being for this non-topical question is that I've put a lot of effort in the customization of my device.

    Again, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for juicing up our already awesome phones!

    Any theories as to why the US Cellular guys aren't getting it at all though? Same kernel right?

    Hey guys,
    I'm still running RC1, (there were still some issues in 1.1 and 1.2 so I'm holding off on reflashing) and I'm having some issues with my data connectivity (3g and 4g) with it not connecting after I've had my phone locked for a little while. Is this an issue with my modem? If so which one do you guys recommend I upgrade to?

    Also, I feel dumb for asking this, what does LoS stand for :O

    haha! don't feel bad LOS (Loss Of Service) is whats causing your issue with your data connection In RC1 (still running it myself) it does tend to drop, DK thinks its a kernel issue but I just flashed the FG31 modem and haven't had any so far

    If you really want to know if the phone is charging, run a lead on the positive contact on the phone, the positive contact of the battery and insulate with electrical tape. Then connect a multimeter set in DC current mode between the two leads and see if there is positive current flow. Or, meter out the battery with a multimeter and read the voltage, then charge for 10 min and see if the voltage increased.

    I agree, think it's the kernel. I'm also starting to think that the los isn't necessarily the problem. The problem is that it doesn't automatically scan and reconnect once it loses signal. It only seems to happen when I am in a bad signal area. Like at work today, had way more los than at home. Also, since the FG31 modem seems to work better for me, los has decreased. I dunno, who knows.

    Made more sense in my head lol

    well it works when the phone is off but when im running the rom it wont charge. i rebooted and now it wont even detect anything is plugged into it. Conisdering it works for someone else im reflashing.. its a shame because i had no LOS at all from boot.

    Man, sounds like a software issue. But, no way to tell if the phone is really charging without metering it out. Even when some phones indicate charging, doesn't really mean that there is positive current flow to the battery...

    Loss Of Service= when your signal falls out..

    sounds like you're experiencing this

    That's a really good question. I dug up the old AC blog post about LOS on the Epic 4G Touch ahead of the EK02 update:

    The Sprint Epic 4G Touch possibly has a fix on the way soon for loss of signal and other bugs | Android Central

    This was what kingsway8605, who got a special push of EK02 directly from an inside source at Samsung before everyone else did, was told about why LOS was occuring ...

    It is isolated to areas with spotty coverage, which is why some don't experience it at all. If you are in 4G and leave 4G coverage, or in 3G coverage and leave 3G coverage, and in the process of sending packets, there is apparently a bug where the phone does not detect this and would just give up after it could no longer talk to the old tower.
    To answer your question about US Cellular, if I were to take a stab at it, I have to look at the real in your face difference between the Sprint and US Cellular versions of the phone ... Sprint has WiMax and US Cellular does not. There are obviously other cellular network related differences, but any deeper analysis goes way above my pay grade.

    So, here's what we know about LOS on the Epic 4G Touch. It was an issue on the release software version which was EG30. It was fixed in the next update, which was EK02. How it was fixed? No darn clue. But ...

    Samsung Open Source Release Center

    Scroll down to the SPH D710. I believe the file that does not list a base version is the original release source code (EG30). EK02 is listed. If anyone knows how to compare the kernel source code and identify differences, something may come to light in what Samsung did to fix the issue.

    I've had several instances of LOS, it works great when I'm home but once I go outside and move around lots of LOS.
    same here I was fine inside but I went out and got LOS but the strange this was my bars still showed full but would pull no data

    Yes it does. Just the playback color and blurred lines are there. Video playback does not work in videoplayer either.

    Ive had this happen a lot with videos and still do even with stable roms..

    What happens is you have to have the phone in landscape before you press record.. if you start recording then turn sideways it will screw up the rotation and no matter how you hold it, its the wrong way.

    You said picture so this might not be your problem but who knows might be the same type of deal.

    On standard reboot running RC1.2, does the cache & dalvik clear automatically? I noticed that on RC1

    So far on RC1.2:

    -No LOS (though I haven't left the house yet. Will update in an hour or so) I received like 40 texts after gaining back service, lol.
    -Youtube playback is a tad glitchy
    -GPS works
    -3G works (slow, as expected in my area)
    4G does not connect (though 4G is spotty to begin with in my area)

    So far, it's feeling pretty damn smooth.

    EDIT: Also, as everyone else stated, the camera isn't working.
