    I flashed the 06-19-2012 build on two phones yesterday with no problems, but I just flashed the 06-21-2010 build on a friends phone and the contacts were gone. The only options were corporate account and facebook contacts. I'm giving it another try to see what happens.

    edit: On the second try the google account was there and so were the contacts.
    So it wasn't just me! When you flashed the second time did you do anything different? I've flashed 2x and had the same issue both times. Before I flash I use LeslieAnn's wipe zip for updating a ROM. Did you did any wiping before flashing? I'd like to figure this out 'cause I really like this ROM and want to use the newest version.

    It happened to me as well, so now when I update the ROM I also install the gapps again and that takes care of that issue. I know it has been said you do not need to but it does not damage anything either.

    Hey mrg666 is there any way you could add something to tell us when you release new versions?
    I don't like such update reminders/checkers in the ROM. If you are wondering if there is a new build, just put a bookmark in your browser to check the OP in this thread. One reason I rooted my phone was to remove such bloat from my phone. I wouldn't put them back.

    There's been pieces of a conversation in the Quattrimus thread about the possibility of a swap partition being used to alleviate some of the existing memory management issues. I think I remembered you saying that Play Music is CPU intensive, and if it is also memory intensive, could having a swap partition be of any benefit?

    Is MiRaGe setup to make use of a swap partition if one exists?
    Swap partition and swapping are totally useless in Android. There is a lowmemorykiller in the Android kernel that kills the background apps as more memory is needed. If an app still needs more memory even after helped with the lowmemorykiller, that app simply is not suitable for running on your phone. You wouldn't want to run a crawling app that is overflowing to swap space which is maybe 100 times slower than RAM. Swap is for desktop/server systems to push the idle processes to disk and open up RAM space for running processes. This conflicts with the specific task of lowmemorykiller in Android. Memory management is quite different in Android and swap is redundant/unnecessary if not harmful. Even in a desktop/server system, when a running process is ovreflowing to swap it needs to be killed before it kills your harddisk. i.e. although you can, you shouldn't run apps on swap, swap is for idle processes.

    I didn't do anything out of the ordinary. The phone in question was running a couple month's old MiRaGe build. Here's what I did:

    1. Went to recovery and made a backup.
    2. Wiped cache and dalvik-cache.
    3. Flashed 06-21 MiRaGe and rebooted the phone.

    I always let the sit for a few minutes after wiping caches so that it can do it's thing. As I was going through the settings to turn off the power prompt, the phone rebooted itself. After the ROM loaded again, a text message came in and that's how my friend noticed that his contacts were gone. I tried to add his account but couldn't; google play was asking me to sign in and then it would close. (I also noticed that the Wi-Fi indicator would not turn green, but that was not my main concern). Around this time the phone rebooted itself again. After it was back up and running, I did this:

    4. Went into recovery and wiped data/factory reset, wiped cache and dalvik-cache.
    5. Restored the backup I made earlier and rebooted the phone.
    6. After checking that the google acct and contacts were there, I went back into recovery.
    7. Wiped cache and dalvik-cache.
    8. Flashed 06-21 MiRaGe and rebooted the phone.

    After the ROM loaded everything was fine and dandy. Now my friend says his phone is faster than ever.

    This is the key problem. There has been changes in the Contacts app and, apparently, the data of the previous app was not compatible with the new app.

    That makes sense, but what's weird is that there seemed to be no issues the second time around after restoring the outdated MiRaGe build.

    It could be corruption of Contacts data too.

    Ah very true that makes sense. And I do have it bookmarked I check back frequently. I've been using your ROM for the first time for about 2 days now and it's been very very good to me. It's the first time I've used Link2SD and that works really great.
    With using Link2SD though are there any complications when upgrading?

    No problems. There have been a couple glitches when link2sd has had updates in the past, but I have been using it for over a year now and have been using mirage a majority of the time and its virtually seamless when it comes to updating a rom. Every once in a while it might tell you to recreate mount scripts, but that's just about the only problem.

    So what do you do w/ the new app to avoid losing contacts when updating?

    It is not supposed to happen at every update. This never happened to me. If you have to clear the data of Contacts again, it will sync with Google and restore your contacts after you logon to your Google account.

    After you update the ROM, Link2SD will ask the scripts to be created again at the first boot. Do that and reboot. After the reboot, go to Link2SD and relink dalvik-cache and libraries. That is all needed.

    Been using your rom on 2 different OVs for a while now, seem to be having an issue now with the camcorder. All I get for sound is a hum for a few seconds and then nothing. I'm running the 6/21 build off a fresh wipe and flash (well 6/19 was fresh, flashed the "update zip" you posted to XDA)

    PLEASE HELP, I like to take videos often, and the audio issue is killing me.

    I remember hearing about an issue like this in the IHO thread. Trying turning the camera shutter sound off, and see what that does. And I know,you're talking about the camcorder, not the camera, but I heard that this works.

    Thanks! Worked like a charm. Wonder what the issue is with the shutter sound? Is it something the dev might he able to fix?

    I did a mistake and caused the sound problem in video recording while fixing the headset buttons. I have uploaded the 06232012 kernel to my github repo. Can you please try it? It should fix the sound problem.

    You remember correct but disabling the shutter sound is not necessary anymore.

    Edit: I was doing more testing and I have found that it still possible to break the sound in video recording if I simply plug in the headphones and pull out before starting the camera app. There are two ways to resolve this temporarily. If you do a quick reboot in Links2SD (it takes 15-20 seconds) camera records video with sound after that. If you disable the shutter sound in camera, this problem does not happen.

    I am looking into this and will post here when I can find a permanent solution. Since quick reboot does not reboot the kernel, I am thinking the fix could be in the Android OS. It would be great if you know and post a link to any discussion about such a problem in another CM7 system.

    Flashed the 6/21 build and just to be safe reflashed GAPPS. Rebooted and contacts were there and everything runs fine. Thanks mrg666 for a great ROM and great support.

    Different version of what? There is only one mrg kernel isnt there?

    Also, CPU scaling is all messed up on his rom. Its all maxed out.? Which would give terrible battery life? How is that a good setup?

    I have been using the Linaro toolchain for compiling the kernel since many months now. The compatibility issues are with the Android OS.



    You have no idea what you are talking about and you will be ignored in this thread from now on.
    cmon man thats harsh... everyone has to learn somehow. and by a different version, i meant a different version of linaro. the toolchain used to compile his kernel.
