    What's the battery life like on the new build?

    Sent from my LG-VM670 using Tapatalk
    All the builds have been good drain on battery for me, including the latest 0730. If I just have cell signal on, it's less than 1%/hour drain. Turning on the GPS and then off seems to trigger it into higher drain mode until the next reboot (only detectable using the battery use graph), but other than that, the major drain only comes from 3G data use (which I usually manually turn off unless I specifically need it).

    Is there a twitter account for this ROM or a quick way to find out about updates besides this thread? I don't always get email notifications from this thread :/

    Cybermaniak, you may need to do a complete wipe and reflash. This is the type of battery life you should be getting on this ROM:

    you're probably getting bad battery life because of push notifications, and programs syncing. i use juice defender and get 1 day or so of battery life. it turns on my 3g every 30 min to sync, i don't feel the need to have 3g on all the time

    I actually only need to have the Yahoo Mail / and mail apps running when the screen is OFF.. (push mail)

    Can you share how to config Juice Defender (ultimate) I have tried that, but it was a bit weird..

    I have tried the scripts for Droidwall, but for some reason they dont work with 2.3 i think 2.3 handles iptables a bit different than 2.2

    Will that mess up sync? Say facebook goes to sync before scheduled event but isn't allowed to, will it sync up only on the scheduled time? And cell standby is usually at 50%+. Seems way too much imo

    Seems as if one of your main issues is with phone signal being weak where you are, you should be geting a green strip under the battery graph if you have a good signal.

    Under settings>cyanogenmond settings>>interface>>status bar tweaks>>alternate signal display
    Choose Signal text w/dBm and let us know what kind of readings you're getting.

    Well right now it says 85 dBm .

    BTW: do you know how to fix the issue that QPST/CDMA Workshop doesnt read the phone with this rom.

    I have been using this rom http://forums.androidcentral.com/opt...ad-7-15-a.html

    And also BumbleeBee and none of those have the problem.

    QPST says No phone, and CDMA Workshop says, Phone stop responding.

    But the phone is detected under device manager..

    Any clue on that ?

    Same here. It always says 85 dBm on the status bar but between -87 to -95 dBm with 0 asu under phone > status.

    Just wanted to chime in on this. I've been using the Jerryscript builds and am currently using the 7/30 build. In all of them, I've found that the gps does work, but it just doesn't seem as quick to lock as when I was running Stock. When I was running a stock rom, my GPS locked in almost immediately. With this rom, it can be 20-30 seconds before I get a fix. It also seems to occasionally lose fix.

    Does anyone else see this?

    This is really a nitpick; the gps is very usable and these issues are only noticeable when comparing them to the stock rom performance. I'm sure Blarf has higher priority things in the queue to fix, but I figured I'd mention this.
    Did some more GPS tests today, and unfortunately I'd have to lower my assessment from "very usable" to "usable, but with issues". I found it kept losing reception from time to time, which was fairly annoying as I was trying to navigate. Again, when I use the same device on a stock rom, the GPS is flawless.

    Not sure if anything can be done at this point in time, but wanted to make sure Blarf was aware.

    Here is a link to my build for the VM670: CM7.1RC1-VM670-BobZ-073111.zip
    It's the same as Jerry's 7/30 build with the following changes:
    1) Updated CM with dBm fixed
    2) Added Darktremor Apps2SD version 2.7.5.2
    3) Orginal CM7 bootanimation
    4) New ringtone added: "Somebody's Out There"

    All credit goes to Blarf(the Dev)...please donate to his beer fund!
