    How much work would it be to patch android to use the kernel time?
    I would wonder if there's a good reason why it's not being done that way already...

    Well as long as we're asking, are you able to build cm11 yet? I am seeing a failure in checkapi-last, where it's complaining about android.os.recoverySystem.RebootWipeUserData being removed... I believe you were going to abandon the ext2 attempt and return to ext4?
    Are we in flux here - should I wait or should I be able to build?
    Thanks
    I was able to build another ext2 after that one which has been stable since. maybe my card just had to settle in. I should upload it... but the existing twrp doesn't handle ext2 or ext4 right, the updater-script would have to be modified pretty solidly to get it to flash. every mount line needs replaced with a busybox mount line to work... and the latest twrp I built is glitchy even though it does handle the ext2.

    flux.
    hadn't tried cm11 in a little while and cm12 never finishes for thunderc. msm-7x27,thunder-common,thunderc cm11/OS2SD branches contaminated with cm12, you can reset them back a little and they should be ok.

    Great - that's all I needed to know - I'll learn more about git this way.

    Yeah I noticed that contamination - I thought I might be doing something wrong with git or repo
    Cool, I'll want to play with doing this. I'm actually using the last version you put up on my primary phone. All you need is a couple spare batteries, and don't care about using the phone as an alarm clock, and you're good to go! Serves as a good pocket warmer too as the weather gets colder.

    Usually when i want to remove a system app, I either use Lucky Patcher(although the app hasn't been playing well lately) or I simply delete the apk from /system/app or /system/app-priv through TWRP's file browser, or a file browser app on the phone. TB could very well be misreading the system app location as Squid said earlier.
    Yup. I went through Root Explorer, and it got rid of them good. It looks like the problem with TB wasn't that it was misreading the location (it was pretty spot-on), but that the locations themselves were set to read-only; once I flipped it to rewritable, THAT got rid of'em. Permanently, like I wanted...yesss.

    I usually use the outdated Better Keyboard 8 for GB(paid version) as my keyboard cause its highly customizable, and I've yet to find a newer keyboard that has similar functions as it does that I enjoy. For my launcher, I use Nova Prime. The prepackaged launcher irritates me with its menu function lacking an option to launch system settings as all other launchers normally do(by bringing up an actual menu).
    I actually like Hacker's Keyboard. Another one I liked was Gingerbread Keyboard, though that's all but impossible to find on Play Store now. Jellybean Keyboard was okay, too; used to run that one on my ZTE Score. As for launchers, I like Holo Launcher HD the most. Wasn't too fond of Nova there...

    As far as I know, Apollo has always had a repeat function since my use of it. Then again, when it was first introduced into CM9 I think I replaced it with an updated version than what was provided.
    Hmm. I must've missed when that happened, then, lol. Still don't really like it much after having fiddled around with it.

    I can't wait to see if CM12 boots on this OV!! The ZTE Awe community on AF already has it booting already!!
    ...damn, they do? Wicked. It'll be awesome if the OS/OV can get it.

    Sadly I'll be picking up a Kyrocera Hydro vibe this black friday from Target for $30. It has a locked bootloader so I wont be able to do much on it but root it. I may be getting the HTC Desire 510 from best buy for $30 on black friday as well, but it being x64 architecture, there's no known way to root it yet. One of my friends might toss me their Samsung Galaxy Ring to toy around with as well, but there's not much of a modding community for it either. Of course I'll still be keeping up with the OV as long as there are still developers for it till it's absolute death of development.
    Hydro Vibe...don't waste your money. I think just about anything Kyocera has locked bootloaders; pretty sure the original Hydro does. Galaxy Ring has zilch other than rooting. They don't even have a proper CWM yet; while I've heard of one version being made for it, it has to be flashed via Odin, and past experiences with my Galaxy Rush shows that Odin doesn't play nicely. (Had to go through the root & CWM flash process SEVERAL TIMES before it finally took. I'd rather not go through that with my sister's Galaxy Ring again.) Desire 510...that's the Boost Mobile one, right? Hmmm...maybe somebody will figure out how to root it soon. It came out fairly recently...

    Yea the kyocera hydro vibe does have a locked boot loader, might just get it to fiddle around with and keep it as a backup. The desire 510 is actually on virgin mobile. I swapped to the galaxy ring, I'm loving the speed of this phone compared to my ov, though the lack of CM is bugging me. Got mine rooted, and CWM on it with Odin fairly easily. There are a couple devs trying to get CM on there, but they seem to be very cautious and taking their time with it. One of the devs don't even own the phone, well he doesn't own nearly half the phones he works with, but he's at least got a decent kernel built for it.

    Xposed framework kinda hells with the lack of Cm, but not entirely. I kinda wish I had a computer that I could use so I could try my hand at making a custom rom for the galaxy ring, or at least attempt to port a galaxy s3 mini rom to the ring, since they're so similar.

    Wow. I guess Odin is a finicky beast, lol...it certainly doesn't like to play nice for me, as I've mentioned. And never even mind the lack of any CM on the Ring, there seems to be a general lack of ROMs at all, unless I missed something. (I know the Rush doesn't really have much of anything, and the one ROM they do have over on Android Forums, well, I can't even get that because the SD card doesn't seem to respond to the device nicely: anything saved to it automatically gets erased on reboot)

    I just miss all the features Cm has to offer, and customization. The only ROMs for the ring are stock odex and deodexed. Grant it there are flashable mods all over the web, I'd rather have it all packed into 1 ROM.

    So far from my experience, for people that are still on the Grandfathered $25/m plan, the Optimus V and the ZTE Awe have the largest dev communities for virgin mobile phones. Idk about other older Vm phones like the Evo V or Triumph though, never owned em, so I never looked into their Dev communities.

    triumph has cheap service plan but lost development before kitKat. evo thirtyfive plan but still seeing development.

    Ugh. Lately, I've had "com.android.systemui" app not responding errors. Selecting wait does nothing, it crashes back to the lockscreen anyway. Quite annoying, and I have no idea what causes it or how to stop it.

    If your phone wasn't so twitchy about flashing I'd suggest a re-install. If you have a backup from before it went wonky, I'd try that instead...
    If you can get me a logcat (terminal: logcat -d > /sdcard/log.txt) and copy the contents of that file to pastebin.com (or attach the file somewhere) and give me the link, I'll make a little time to take a look at it.
    Right now (and for most of the last week, and I'm not sure how long to finish it up) I'm contracted to work on an app for someone across the pond, which is HIGH priority, since their business is kind of riding on it (the previous dev flaked out and I took over in the middle.)
    So I won't have time to fix anything here for a little while, but I can look at your log and maybe tell you why it's crashing... if it's an easy one I might even be able to post you a fix, but no guarantees.

    I'll see what I can do to get a logcat up for you.

    Hmmm...were you ever able to get a Sprint Fix going that was compatible with the ROM & that boottest? I could be wrong, but I'm guessing maybe my phone was getting a bit sick of pretending it's a similar device...

    Nope, sorry... haven't had much time to work on fun software for a while. The build I'm using is cr*p. Just too lazy to download the last stable one.
    See if you can get that logcat and I can give you a better idea what is going on.

    development stalled.
    it's the holidays, the time of year when everybody and their brother demands I fork out money whether I have it or not. and so I have zero time for recreation or entertainment, until probably February.
    "happy" holidays and a big genuine "bah humbug" to all.

    I should revert to that build myself.
    I'd like a stable new build too! just haven't had time.

    Ugh. That command for gettin' the logcat via Terminal doesn't wanna work: soon as I press enter, all that happens is that another command input line shows up as if I didn't do anything.

    Also, video playback doesn't seem to work no matter what, the Gallery won't do it, neither will apps like MX Player. It struggles and then says it can't play the video. (These are mp4 & 3gp videos)

    UPDATE2014Dec20: Well, well. Looks like I was WRONG about that aLogcat app!! Here, I got two different ones for you, both copied to pastebin. (I *thought* it wasn't trying to save, but it actually DID, didn't realize this until I connected to the computer)

    that is some really ugly logcat.
    location its fcing.

    two things to check
    sometimes dirty flash causes gapps forcecloses.
    also try
    mount
    in terminal and look for /cache, maybe it's not mounting.
