    Hotspot doesn't appear to be working.

    It connects, and everything looks fine, but I have no internet access.
    I'm getting an IP address similar to what Windows defaults to when it isn't getting an IP address from the router.

    Can anyone else confirm this problem?
    I'll wipe later tonight and see if it fixes things.
    Wifi is working fine, tried two different routers. It obtains proper IP and lets me surf.

    Maybe you can try other routers, confirm with a good signal strength too?

    Rev u should tell ppl to wipe everything after install... I didnt wipe when 1st installed... everything was fine then after about 4 days I would get random reboots and apps disappearing.... But I reflashed and wiped all data (like u originaly posted when thread was 1st made) now everythings been great for the past 3 days

    Yep. I made the change in the first post. The next version of the rom will wipe the cache automatically since it needs to be done.

    It's been nearly a week since using this rom. But recently, after reboots, apps installed on the sd card have been disappearing. When I install missing apps through titanium it processes but says it will overwrite the existing app. So it's still there but not visible, like it's just based off a report log that didn't record the uninstallations or disappearance.

    I found on a moto droid forum that the person deleted the contents of .android_secure on the sd card to remedy the problem. But he/she also wiped and reinstalled the rom. I will let you know if deleting the folder contents are good enough.

    But is this related to the rom? I did not wipe because, as stated in your notes, users have reported no problems installing without wiping.

    It's worth mentioning that when on the previous rom (RodimusROM) whenever I moved an app to sd it would pop up an error message that it couldn't be moved to the sd. But after trying again it worked and moved to sd. I'm guessing this was because of that error and being carried over to this rom brought the problem along.
    If may be a problem in the base rom, if both mine and romidus have the problem. I'll see if I can figure it out. For what's it's worth, I run my own rom and haven't had any problems..

    I would try clearing the cache like others have tried (the wipe menu from custom recovery). It won't kill your apps, but it may fix the problem of apps disappearing or supposedly present when they aren't. The cache is used for (among other things) a sort of high-speed locator for apps. If it's out of date, or got corrupted, it could cause these sort of problems.

    At any rate, since people apparently ARE having problems, the next version will go back to wiping. I hope to have BETA 3 up by the end of the week.

    Another user is reporting the same problem. I'm currently looking into it, but don't have a solution yet. It appears to be a problem with the kernel, so I'd say go back to the stock kernel for now if you really need this.

    I reflashed then wiped cache, davlik cache, and factory wiped. It was a long arduous task. And so far everything seems fine. Even when pulling the battery and hanging at the boot-up upon restart, all apps loaded just fine. We'll see how it goes during the week.

    my hotspot feature is working just fine, used it the other day and had 2 laptops connected to it

    the only problem im having is my sd card unmounting itself sometime when the lcd is off then remounting when i click and button to turn on the lcd. Its annoying when im downloading something and i constantly have to redownload

    idk if thats an issue with the rom or kernel but i did see something online that said the optimus S has the same issue and to fix it some ppl just reformat a new sd card, im gonna try it tomorrow, anyone less had or is having this problem

    other than that GREAT kernel and bloatware removal

    While I do kind of need it and I can go without it for a bit, another reason for posting was to help confirm the issue.

    It's still an awesome rom, good work.

    I'll follow what is below and a wipe and see if it helps.

    Hi, I have complete rooted and installed this rom, and i am one of the lucky ones as i can use the phone at the full 864 mhz with no problems. well, almost. Something has gone wrong with the screen, like it seams to be calibrated wrong or something and i know you dont calibrate capacitive screesn but like when typeing for instance i have to hit the same key around 3 times for it too actually register and scrolling screens is really jumpy and i know for a fact its not the processor. anyone have any ideas on why this is happening. im still very new to android

    Just got done testing and playing.

    Wifi hotspot does work.

    I turned it on, and would connect, but with no internet access. I tried a few roms and at one point, I left it on and went searching for answers, looked back and it was working. Basically it connects to the phone, sits for about a minute, then the laptop restarts the connection and it has internet. It worked this way on the stock Virgin build and on this build.

    If you use the hotspot widget, just be patient, give it a minute or two and it should work.

    I didn't read through all the posts, so sorry if this was already mentioned. I have loved this rom except for one thing...it makes my phone charge extremely slow, like maybe 6% per hour with screen off and not touching it. It doesn't use up power faster, just charges slower. Is anyone else having this problem? Also, I can no longer mount the drive over USB. I have to take it out and plug it directly into the computer.

    mydever: try installing the drivers from lg mobile update. this fixed my phone not showing up. also make sure usb debugging is turned off if u dont have those drivers. my phone charges much slower if i charge via usb or with the stock charger. but when i use my other micro usb charger from my other lg phone it charges faster

    one thing of intrest you cant reacative your phone with this rom due to the activation app being missing. i however extracted it from a stock install and it can be installed with easy installer and fixes the issue its called the self service assistant i backed it up with sdx stock app remover and then verified it by looking at the icon in easy installer, i then rebooted and restored my nandroid backup of my current setup (i had reverted to stock to grab the app) and installed it with out issue with easy installer and ran it with out issue. might want to include this in the beta 3 release as its tiny and is part of core functionality.

    On the other hand, you could just dial ##847446# and reach the activation menu that way. :-)

    this rom sounds awesome, first thing ill be trying when i get my V. A few questions though from the reading i have done on this phone...

    is the touchscreen sensitivity/bug/whatever fixed? I like really sensitive touchscreens and i know from ROM to ROM this changes. Ive seen a touchscreen bugfix floating around, can that be applied to this ROM?

    How is gaming on this ROM? Ive heard slowness issues with Angry Birds. How does Rocket Bunnies run?

    Can anybody provide overclocking profiles? Ive played with SetCPU before but i used someone else's profiles. Would like to simply have some pre-done profiles to maximize battery life while maximizing speed.

    Thanks!

    What is this touch screen bug I keep hearing about? The only bug I experienced is sometimes when you're scrolling it will just jump and keep scrolling until it reaches the end. But that's not so frequent so it's nothing to pull my hair out for.

    Btw, I'll give you what profiles I have set. It's made for battery saving while maintaining decent performance, i.e. little lag on lockscreen when screen wakes.

    [Profile] [Priority] - [max] , [min] , [scaling]
    Charging [100%] - 600 , 245 , ondemand
    Screen Off [99%] - 245 , 122 , conservative
    Battery <101% [98%] - 600 , 122 , ondemand
    Battery < 50% [97%] - 600 , 122 , conservative
    Battery <35% [ 96%] - 480 , 122 , ondemand
    Battery <20% [95%] - 480 , 122 , conservative
    You can overclock as needed. But I suggest only for Battery 101% to maximize battery life. You can also add a temperature profile just in case you overheat. But with my non-overclocked settings you don't have to worry much about overheating.

    The touchscreen bug is present on all android phones (supposedly it is fixed in 2.3, but I haven't tested it yet). What happens is that during a touch event (i.e., when you first touch the screen) the processor jumps to 100%, and it causes skipping in games, programs, etc. A "quick and dirty" test is to watch your setCpu frequency when you first touch the screen. You'll see it jump from your low setting to your high setting for a second, and then settle back down.

    To answer your question, the kernel in this rom has a few touchscreen driver tweaks to lessen the bug (And it is for sure better than stock), but the problem isn't completely eliminated because it has to do with the way Android handles touchscreen events. As I mentioned above, 2.3 is supposed to fix this problem, and there is an initial 2.3 port in the S thread that should work, so if you are having serious touchscreen problems, you should probably try that rom instead.

    If someone doesn't beat me to it, I may work on the tweaks required to make the rom work 100% on the V (i.e., fix the button mapping), but frankly, I have my hands full just working out the kinks with a nearly stock rom! lol.

    There are some tweaks to lesson the touchscreen problem, but it's not completely gone.. See my last post.. Gaming is much improved, assuming you are overclocked. If you are not, the differences are hardly going to be noticeable. I run Angry Birds just fine. It chugs a little on the later levels still, but it's not nearly as bad as stock. There's another thread specifically dedicated to overclocked gaming on the forum.
