    I've been hearing a lot about COT. Might try that one first, actually. Now, when I flash a new recovery, are my existing Nandroid backups still workable? I've heard conflicting reports on that.

    You may get lucky, but I wouldn't count on it. Make new backups for every recovery you flash.

    Well, flashing and calibrating that sucker couldn't have been easier. COT, that is. Looks real nice. Love the touch function. Everything seems solid. Of course, I won't know how reliable it is until I need to recovery from my new Nandroid backup, but I have faith.

    Here's an odd question. I flashed COT with no trouble. Haven't used it for anything significant yet. Today, I'm getting force closes all over the place. That almost never happens. It doesn't seem likely, but can a recovery affect the normal operation of the phone?

    Unfortunately doing a search for "listen" "google listen" and "progress bar" gives far, far too many hits, so I am just going to ask here...

    I upgraded to Harmonia 2.08 from 1.x, and love it. Except... when I am listening to a podcast, either in Listen or in BeyondPod, the progress bar does not advance unless I tap on it somewhere. If I pause and leave the Listen app and then go back into it, my only option is to hit "Listen Now" which starts over.

    I upgraded to 2.09 hoping it would fix the issue, but it didn't.

    Is anyone else seeing this? Any ideas on what is causing this?

    daniel reagan: I'm having have the same issue with the audio progress bar with multiple apps, such as Akimbo (audiobook player), DoggCatcher (podcast manager / player) and OverDrive Media Console (audiobooks from public libraries).

    Notably, I've tried multiple Gingerbread ROMs, such as IHO, MiRaGe and Harmonia, and they all have this issue (perhaps they're all based on the same base code?). Furthermore, the issue is not present with Harmonia's Froyo or BobZHome's ICS or Jelly Bean.

    I keep thinking I must be doing something because I figure otherwise lots of people would be posting about this, but you're the first other that I've found. Please post back if you figure anything out!

    The only thing that I have seen that might be a work around for the audio progress bar issue is a feature that was included in one of the podcast players (BeyondPod, I think) called "blipstart" https://groups.google.com/forum/?fro...g/FwQkY0sepwEJ

    Not sure if that helps anyone, but it describes a workaround that might be implemented.

    Are any developers still working on Gingerbread for the Optimus V? It looks like, for understandable reasons, development has shifted either to more recent versions of Android or, even more dramatically, more recent phones.

    More specifically, I'm wondering if there's any chance for a ROM-level fix for this audio-progress bar bug, or if I should move on as well?

    I could look into it, what are the most popular audio book apps?

    I use Akimbo for personally owned audiobooks, OverDrive for audiobooks borrowed from my public library, and DoggCatcher for podcasts. All three of these apps have trouble tracking audio progress in any Gingerbread ROM I've tried for my Optimus V.

    Thank you so much for considering this!

    It looks like the problem is a connections error, so it most likely is a library problem.

    [... code I don't understand ...]

    It looks like the problem is a connections error, so it most likely is a library problem.
    You're way over my head here, but please know that I appreciate your effort!

    It turns out that DoggCatcher has a feature under the Advanced menu specifically to address this bug; it is called "Seek bar hack." It says it's for "some devices," and it specifically mentions "CM nightly" as an example. I tried it, and it corrects the problem for me -- the seek bar (referred to as audio progress previously in this thread) now works. From what I understand it basically does an automatic mini-seek when audio starts, which I've already found seems to get the seek bar to work.

    I'm not aware of such a hack built into Akimbo, and it's very unlikely that such a feature would ever be built into the OverDrive Media Console. But, the way I listen to audiobooks it isn't such a big deal to manually do a 10-second seek forward and back whenever I start playback because in one listening session I stick with the same book. Conversely, this was a hassle with podcasts because often I queue up several into a playlist, and it's easy to forget to do the manual seek hack as each one starts to play. Losing one's position sucks!

    Anyway, it seems like I'm in a workable situation now. Of course it would be sweet to get the underlying bug fixed, but I don't want to come off as nagging any developers based on how much impressive work you all have already done!

    My phone won't ring or vibrate. The call screen comes on, but no sound. I tried it with ringer on, and vibrate on - nothing. Any idea what might be causing this? I don't think it's a hardware problem because the speaker works.

    I love this rom, thanks.


    However after a few moths it starting getting slow, probably app updates.

    I did a fresh wipe and re installed all my apps and it is awesome again.

    Is there a way to backup up the whole system and restore it? I know titanium back restores apps, but I think I want to backup the rom,

    Basically I want to take of backup of the whole system, apps and all and this way I can restore it. I also use link to sd so I want to back that up.


    What is the best way to do this? How can I basically take a snapshot of my phone and restore it.

    My idea: Fresh install, install all apps you want, then Nandroid the install.
    Also check out ChronMod A2SD++ Here[SCRIPTS]CronMod-A2SD/D2EXT/INT2EXT (updated 09/19) - xda-developers

    ROM is working pretty well. Had issues with package file errors and other mysterious install/Play problems , reflashed several times -- but now using MarketFix and Link2SD for *everything* with a large FAT32 sd-ext (for some reason, FAT32 seemed to work better than ext3 -- but maybe that's my imagination).

    So... there is one thing missing. The original OV dialer let you send a text message for an incoming call. The phone app in this ROM does not have that feature. If I can get the APK for the original phone app, or a pointer to a free (ad-less?) alternative, that would be great. Tried Reject++ for a bit, but it is just a trial -- and frankly, I think the stock app looks better.

    I was also missing the stock Weather/News app (hog or not), but thankfully this forum had a pointer to it. So the last thing missing is just need a way to send message in response to incoming call...

    A nandroid is a complete system backup that's made in the custom recovery/backup and restore/backup.
    There stored on the SD card in the "clockworkmod" folder.
    It would be a good idea to copy this folder to the computer in case of accidental erasure of the SD card or corruption of the SD card.
    The nandroid will be an exact copy of everything you have done to the currently installed ROM. Same background, apps in the same place etc, etc. Everything just as you had it when you backed up the ROM.
    Very similar to a restore point on a computer.
    Just don't change the format of your partition on the SD card or when you restore the nandroid backup it will not recognize the apps that where linked there. Even if you restore all the exact same apps after you change the format.
