    On a completely different issue...I'm running Harmonia 1.2 on both my phone and my wife's, and we're both running into a problem. It's quite probably unrelated to the ROM, but I'm wondering if someone else here has run into it. Recently we've both had problems installing apps from both the Google Market and from Amazon's app store. When I get an error, it's an invalid package file -- but often it appears to start a download that lasts for a few seconds (when I'd expect 10-20 seconds, at least), and then goes away with no installing message or error -- it's just done, without actually DOING anything. The app still shows up in the market as having an upgrade available, and I'm still running the old version. It happens particularly often with updates to existing apps -- new apps that have never been installed before are more likely to install just fine. Wiping the davlick cache doesn't seem to help often, though it might have helped once. Any ideas? Including ideas of where I should be posting this problem?
    I've had the same problem for a while too, but it seems to appear on any rom I try. I've had the market issues for weeks on both harmonia 1.2 and bumblebee, so i don't think its specific to harmonia. I've wondered if it was because of titanium backup, I only restore the apps and never the system data. New apps usually install from the market without issue, but upgrading apps on the market seems to cause issues, either an unfinished download, an install error, or worse, causes me phone to reset.

    Might want to try MyBackup Root instead of Titanium Backup. I installed the bumblebee ROM yesterday and MyBackup Root successfully reinstalled ALL of my apps, and their associated data, with NO problems. All market links worked as usual. Good luck!

    Yeah I kind of thought of that before, but I don't think mybackup has a "restore to original location" option, right? Titanium backup has that, so all the apps that I put on the sd card are restored to the sd card.

    I'm working on it, but I can't give a date, not that it matters to be honest. This rom isn't about being the latest and greatest, it's about being simple so there isn't a lot that can or will be done with it (yeah right, look at all the flashable options )

    Next update should have:
    TWS fix
    Reboot menu
    Updated Superuser (I believe there is an update)

    I considered adding the App2ext files, you would still need to set it up, but the files would be there. However, I decided that this not only goes against the premise of the rom, but also, between apps2sd and mvdalvik, very few people would even need it at this point.

    Well, I've switched to Harmonia 1.2 from AOSP.... and I like Harmonia much better because Bluetooth and Camera are still functional.

    One thing I do miss, however, is the quick access to settings via the pull-down notification bar. In AOSP's CM7 mod, there were toggles for WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, Brightness, etc.

    Is there any app that I can install that does this?

    Thanks!

    I came back to Harmonia a couple weeks ago. Also from aosp. Got tired of waiting for fixes that just weren't coming. You know, fix one thing, break something else. Love the clean, smooth functionality of Harmonia. The only thing I really miss is the DSP Manager. If I could find a functioning one it would be perfect.
    ps. Tried the one posted in this form and it doesn't do anything.

    I used MyBackup Root after I installed bumblebee 2.3. Since this ROM maximizes internal storage space (by moving Dalvik-cache to /cache) I had 140 MB free AFTER reinstalling all my apps (and I do have many apps). So not quite sure why you need Titanium backup "so all the apps that I put on the sd card are restored to the sd card"...unless Harmonia 1.2 does not use this cache transfer technique. One more thing, I performed a clean install prior to bumble installation. Hope this helps!

    That is why I try not to mess with it now that it;s at the stage it is.
    It;s a great working rom, it doesn't need much updating because, well, frankly, there isn't much to improve. It will probably remain a good standby for as long as people use this phone.

    I know how much internal space this rom gives, since I've installed it before. I've installed and tried out all roms. And you're unsure why I need more space than this because you've never asked and don't know me. You have no idea about my my app setup or how much space I need. Sorry, but your rush to judgement post was not helpful to me.

    Its just strange for someone who doesn't know me to tell me I don't know something I do know, or don't need something I do need. To assume I didn't know about the dalvik to cache when it already knew about it and have used it for months before many of these current roms have included it is not helpful. And to question whether or not I really need the "restore to original location" option in titanium backup is a bit annoying, as if I really don't know what I need. There was way too much assuming in that post, and it didn't even address the main issue I had, which was the market issue that Lesieann herself, and others had. I find asking people is always better than assuming. And btw I'm plenty calm

    Yes that's the one. Tried it out and had no difference at all. I'm not sure where they got that one from, but tried a couple of DSP apk's and could not get any of them to work. Maybe you would have better luck.

    So sorry you took such great offense, I really was just trying to help and no I don't know you personally (or ANY posters). As I am new to these forums, I will refrain from making any comments to you in the future...sorry again.

    So not quite sure why you need Titanium backup "so all the apps that I put on the sd card are restored to the sd card"
    Great offense? No A bit annoying? Yes. Its just, if someone says "I need option x of app z" its not helpful to then respond "well, I'm not quite sure why you really need option x of app z." Huh? I really don't need what I said I needed? Don't be discouraged from posting, but realize that your needs and setup may be very different from others, and an option you have absolutely no need for may be used regularly by someone else. I mean, obviously people use the "restore to original location" option in titanium backup, or else why would the developer have created it and continued to include it? You don't need to "know" me or anyone else, that's why asking questions is nice. Sorry if I sounded like I took great offense.

    1.3 beta has gone out to a few people for testing.
    MANY thanks to Obijohn for his help. I had the right idea, but was missing a few key things.

    In the beta:
    Superuser updated
    Voice updated
    TWS fix
    Power button mod

    Give the testers and myself a day or two and if things go well, I will have it up shortly. Normally I do private testing, and just post it, but these mods required a lot of minor changes and it took me a few tries to get it right so I'm being a bit more cautious.
    Pinan and zoidberg_md like this.

    Which apps are doing it or is it just when you try to install updates?
    It was happening for any app I tried to update, no matter what it was, and for some new apps.

    I think I may have tracked down the issue, at least a little. Based on some other threads here somewhere (which I didn't bookmark, unfortunately) it seems that the cache can get full even when there's plenty of RAM available. Clearing the cache and/or removing some apps is supposed to help. So I tried it. Sure enough, it seems to work.

    If I uninstall some apps (even when free RAM is shown as 60-70M or more before I uninstall), then I can install/update existing apps -- and THEN I can restore my uninstalled apps from backups. And it all works, at least until the next time I need to update an app. Then I have to repeat -- uninstall some apps, download/apply update, restore app from backup. It seems that clearing the cache is sometimes enough, but not always.

    I don't understand how the cache, davlick cache, and total free memory are all related to each other, so my paraphrase of what I've read should be considered suspect -- but the end result is that uninstalling unrelated apps, installing the update, and restoring the unrelated apps seems to work. It also seemed to fix the bug with Tweetdeck no longer posting to Facebook, but I can't tell if that's just coincidence that it happened around the same time. Could Tweetdeck or other apps have functionality problems if the cache is full?

    So far...
    Battery life for me today has been same as before, maybe a little better actually.


    Marzz had a problem with gtalk, but it works fine for me, could be a bad flash or just some app conflicting. He also ran speed tests and it performs as expected. He also had some issue with ADB, but that seems to be an issue with these phones as a rule.

    As for me,
    No troubles with fc's other than Setcpu, which needed a re-install, probably a bad restore from my backups.


    The other testers haven't seemed to have gotten the PM yet, hopefully they will tonight. I'm waiting on more feedback, but so far things look good. IF things continue as they have there will be a new toy for people this weekend.
