    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
    This is due to a problem with Windows not handling the color output from the busybox ls command. It's not due to my development system or anything like that. Android is linux, color output for "ls" is usually set by default in the shell profile startup on standard linux, so busybox defaults to displaying "ls" with color on.

    One way around it is to create a toolbox link to ls, since the toolbox links are searched before the busybox links. Do this:
    Code:
    > adb remount
    remount succeeded
    > adb shell
    # cd /system/bin
    # ln -s toolbox ls
    # exit
    This fix will stay after rebooting. Technically, you now have two "ls" commands, but since the toolbox commands are searched first, the busybox ls command won't be executed.

    There are terminals for Windows that will handle color output correctly, which the default "cmd" terminal doesn't. Ansicon will display the colors correctly. There are others, I think Terminator works too.

    The reason I say that is because no other ROM I've used does this. Maybe it's the newer version of Busybox as most have 1.16 or something. Regardless, it'd be nice if the ROM included turning it off- it's an annoying out of box experience.

    thanks for this tip on using MyBackup Root. I think I'm going to use it for when I'm on Froyo and Titanium if I ever switch back to Gingerbread. At least I'll have backups of my apps for either version... something like that

    I'll have it as an option in the next update.

    In the future, I would be fine if this were included as an option in the OP.

    First off, thanks for your hard work, this is excellent ROM!

    Question: does the kernel include CIFS module so I can use CIFS manager? If not, what's the best way to add it?

    Thanks in advance...

    Yeah, it will work fine even if you flashed the other one already. It just contains a modified framework and services.jar, which are now based off of the 2.1 versions so they include all the recent fixes.

    Since the TWOS fix in the ROM, I've been noticing data dropping much more frequently. I have to reboot at least twice a day if not more which could account for the lessened battery life. The TWOS may not be the cause of more frequent data drops, just expressing a correlation between the occurrences. Prior to that change in the ROM I maybe had to reboot once every couple of days.

    Data connectivity drops have something to do with faulty communication between the radio and tower, my guess is that there are bugs in the radio firmware. I actually had many more data drops before the TWS bugfix (like every time I made or received a call. Every time, literally. Several times a day.). I don't get nearly so many data connectivity drops now, but I'm sure every situation is different depending on the towers in your area.

    If you do notice that you loose data connectivity, you don't have to reboot. Toggle Airplane Mode for 15 seconds or so. That seems to reset the data connection with the tower. If toggling Airplane Mode doesn't reset the data, run the Activate app. It will exit with an error at the end if you're already activated, but it seems to reset data connectivity as well. Before the TWS bugfix, I had to reboot to reset the data connection or use the Activate app. Now, after the bugfix, just toggling Airplane Mode resets the connection every time I've tried it.

    As I said, I had multiple data drops before the fix, but it does still happen every once in a while even now, maybe once every other day or so for me. And if there's an app that's actively trying to poll for data and the 3G data connection is stuck, it will drain the battery pretty fast.
