    I had a similar problem the other day.
    It solved itself within a few hours.

    I figure it was either a network or market issue.
    I think it's a conflict between Link2SD, Titanium Pro, apps changing from system apps to user apps, and Dalvik cache link on SD moving to a new area.

    I am sure there is a proper sequence to reinstall the apps and make it all work but I am happy with v1.17(8).

    I already had 95MB with the last version and the addition of 45MB doesn't buy me much. Faster SD access would have been nice but not worth the hassle of reinstalling and setting up all the 100+ app from scratch.

    i first installed link2sd, then rebooted, titanium backup restored apps with link2sd autolinking the app/lib files and everything is working fine. couple of apps didn't link right but linking them manually solved it

    I'm not sure if it is just me, but my battery life sucks big time. I switched from aosp, did a full wipe (even used wiper.zip ). I unplugged my phone at 5:00 this morning with a full charge, by noon I was down to 48% left. This is while I was at work with the phone on standby the whole time, no calls, texts, web, nothing. I could go all day until 6:00 when I got home and still have 60-70% charge left on aosp, even with a few calls and checking email. I installed the same apps I've been using with aosp, nothing new. Also I noticed that the charge time seems to take longer, 5-6 hours to charge as opposed to 3-4 hours with aosp. I really like this rom, especially after the dalvik to cache mod but it looks like I'm going to have to switch back if I can't find a solution.

    Is there a very newbie-friendly step-by-step installation guide for this specific ROM?

    I'm too afraid to try to puzzle-together this ROM from other rooting threads...

    I don't think its the rom that's causing such horrible battery life, on idle I get about a 1-2% battery drain with mobile data always on. There must be some other cause...

    My phone takes about 1 hour to charge from 50% on a wall charger. Maybe it's your USB cable.

    As far as battery life goes, it sounds like you have Skype installed (the Skype voice chat app, not the Swype keyboard), amirite? It's definitely your apps and what you're running, not the ROM. I use my phone all the time, rebooting, flashing multiple times from recovery, voice calls, chats, browing, videos, and never once have I had to charge before the end of the day.

    Try MyBackup Root (free on the Market, get the Root version). I think it does a better job at backing up and restoring, especially when it comes to the market links.

    Will TB let you restore the apps only without their data? MyBackup Root will do this, and if you're having issue that's the best way to restore.

    No I don't use skype, and as I said they are the same apps I use on aosp. I switched back and it only took a couple hours to charge from 19% to full charge. Last night on Bumblebee it took 5 hours to charge from 52%. I've been running for an hour now and have only lost 2%, in the first hour this morning I lost almost 10%. If I'm using the same apps on two different roms then I would think the difference in battery usage would have to be the rom.

    seems like battery life was better on 1.8. i went 1 day 13 hr with moderate use. right now with 2.1 i'm at 46% with 11 hr passed

    Battery life on Rodimus was definitely better than it is on BB ROM, at least for me it was.

    I, too, have notice a decrease in battery life. I did a full charge & wiped the battery stats so will see how it does over the next few days as it readjusts.
    I've also noticed, since the TWOS fix, that I'm dropping data more frequently. Not sure if that is a cause, just expressing a correlation. Other than that, though, very pleased with this ROM.


    Just an FYI, each install is a clean and thorough wipe with fresh installs and setups on all apps.
    I don't restore as I prefer starting fresh and clean. I do, however, use App List Backup to backup the list of apps on my phone so I don't forget any when reinstalling.

    If you restored the apps and data that you had on aosp when you installed bumblebee, that is most likely your problem right there. I get a bit less than 1% per minute charging, so it's definitely not the rom.

    Not a back up. Did a clean install of everything. Wiped everything, data, cache, dalvik, wiped battery stats, and installed all apps from the market. If you look at a few of the previous post, others are also having problems with the battery life.

    I'm not saying that you're not experiencing higher than usual battery drain, I'm just saying that I'm not experiencing it. That tells me there's something different about your setup than mine, which can only be apps. Nothing in the new version of the rom has changed that could possibly affect battery life. It's hard for me to figure out what the problem might be when I'm not experiencing it myself, but if you read through the thread you'll see that whenever an issue has been identified I've always fixed it as quickly as possible.

    It's something to do with restoring and Dalvik. I don't use links or Titanium.

    Charging from a USB is known to be slower than from a charger.

    When charging from a USB port the amperage is limited due to usb specifications, a charger on the other hand doesn't have this limitation.

    It could be that your phone just can't handle the overclocking. I'll be posting a stock speed kernel (but still overclockable if you want with SetCPU) probably tomorrow and you can try that.
    Or perhaps just lower the default overclock from 768 to 729. That's a pretty safe bet to work on all phones.

    Your typical computer USB port can push out 500mA, but laptops generally push out less than that. Some USB ports are capable of pushing out 1A or more now, to accommodate charging iPad and other high power-draw devices. I had to install a utility for my Gigabyte motherboard to enable "Quick Charge" on the front USB ports.

    The stock LG charger is 700mA.

    And for this reason the phone doesn't go above 500 on a usb port. The computer is supposed to complain if it goes over.

    As for the stock charger...
    Chargers aren't actually well regulated. They can go higher or lower depending on the power coming in.

    Well I thought 768 would be safe. lol

    Anyway, I've posted a version of the kernel that is not overclocked by default (still overclockable with SetCPU though).

    the first page said the rom # is 2.2 is that a new one? The title still suggest 2.1 version.

    I had never overclocked before installing this rom and was having reboots after installation. I downloaded Set CPU (before the new kernal arrived) and dropped it to 729 and everything including battery life has been solid since. Thanks again obijohn.

    I have seen the tutorial for changing the time color to white in the status bar. This looks either too involved or I am simply too lazy to try it. Is there a tutorial floating around that I can't find or simple directions on how to remove the clock altogether? I would rather go this route as with a clock widget you don't need the status bar one. I saw somewhere you space it out on the display so it's actually off the screen but not sure if this is correct and/or how to do it. Thanks in advance.

    something kinda annoying but in this rom when I log in with adb shell from my Windows 7 computer I get strange characters in front of unix command results looking like this
    ←[1;34m
    after googling it looks like maybe the box you're developing on has some sort of terminal color coding turned on

    to fix I ran
    alias ls='ls --color=never'

    Kinda throws me for a loop as I was thinking something screwy was happening with the file system when I was doing list file commands

    I also got the weird output for the file system. I never mentioned it since the rom runs perfectly. Thought it was just me.
