    Quick question dose anyone know who to remove the boot sound when this ROM starts up. I was never a fan of the "Virgin Mobile" voice that plays on the stock ROM and I just don't want anything at all.
    here ya go

    instead of replacing the file just delete it.

    Wrong thread?
    This rom doesn't have that, in fact you will be hard pressed to find much Virgin branding at all.


    What about pure android 2.3, no add ons or frills? I don't use that extra crap anyways.
    I thought about it, and would but AOSP isn't very loaded down, but more importantly there isn't a great working 2.3 to work from. AOSP is the only place to start and it has issues (work in progress). I'm not releasing a rom that runs that way with no hope of me fixing it.

    IF they release 2.3 for this phone before I upgrade, I will do a build of it, or if someone gets GB running 100%, but not before.

    Hey LeslieAnn, is there a setting or something that determines how often the phone will hunt for a cell signal when it doesn't have reception?

    I reported that the Froyo roms used their radios when they were in airplane mode, but the same doesn't appear to be true of AOSP's CM7. So it appears that this is controlled by the kernel or rom and not by the radio firmware. There are also reports that Bumblebee uses up more battery when the TWS is high than AOSP's CM7 does. I'm wondering if we can improve the amount of battery drain when the phone is without a reliable signal much in the same way that increasing the wifi scan interval drastically improved battery life from the early versions of Harmonia.
    I believe that is what the supplicant scan interval is (scan rate) and as you probably know, that doesn't do anything in the build prop.

    There is a menu setting to disable that feature entirely (wifi settings/network notification) and there are apps that will switch you to wifi based on location. Supposedly these work well.

    Will this kill your signal entirely? I have no idea.

    Framirezferrer's black bars will also work on this rom.

    Bumblebee was, at one point, a week out from releasing a 2.3 ROM. I don't know how far out it is now though.

    I'm not talking about the wifi radio. I'm talking about the cellular radio. When there is no cell tower nearby, the phone will hunt for a new tower. I'm wondering if there is anything built into the rom that controls how aggressive that tower hunting is. With the stock roms, turning on airplane mode does not kill the tower hunting (from what I observed during battery tests), but users of AOSP's CM7 report that their phone can stay on for weeks at a time with airplane mode enabled which leads me to believe that their rom is truly disabling the radio while the stock roms are not.

    I'm interested in this too, just out of curiosity. I work in a basement where there's no cell coverage available, and as soon as I get into work the battery starts being drained pretty hardcore -- no apps running outside of what's stock on this ROM. Whether I'm in WiFi or airplane mode, it doesn't seem to matter.

    At the house, where I also have WiFi but decent cell coverage, the same battery will last a day and a half.

    You won't be able to, but switching is very easy. With the mess AOSP has turned into, i would suggest you do the same thing i did, switch over to harmonia.

    I don't miss aospCM7 at all.
    yes i found out that i could not use CWR. I installed Harmonia for like a day and went back to aosp. I really like GB. But i think ill try BB also just so i can try it. I really liked Harmonia....its a great rom love the kernel(it rocks) . I would run it with aosp but it mess with the accelerometer and how know i could go back to this rom if aosp does not shape up. time will tell.

    Ah you know what I was the one that add it back on the phone by flashing the stock sounds you had in the second post, sorry I didn't clarify that on my post. I just wanted some of the alarm ringtones I had gotten use to and instead got things back that I didn't want also

    So go into the zip, delete what you want to not put back, copy it to your sdcard, go into recovery, disable signature check, flash the file.

    Or use the raw files on your Sdcard, it will let you use them from there.

    @LeslieAnn, there's something wrong with the OP's html right now. Anytime I try to click on a link to take me to the OP, be it from the forum or from within the thread, it takes me to the root of the forums. This also happens when clicking on pages in the thread that contain quotes of the OP. I am reporting this to the mods, am I the only one this is happening to, not sure if it's my PC/Browser or the html itself. I found this out while trying to post a link to the Harmonia thread for another user last nite, and it's still occuring this morning.

    A couple of days ago Avast anti-virus was going nuts with this thread. Wouldn't let me get to it. Using IE, Opera, Firefox. Since then everything was wonky. I had to reset my Favorites for this thread.

    Fwiw; It was only this thread that had the problems.

    Does Harmonia or the default VM rom include the SMS routing fix? (Issue 9392 - SMS are being sent to the wrong recipient) The issue was fixed in Android 2.2.2 but the default VM rom is based on 2.2.1.

    Leslie, do you think flashing the bumblebee kernel might cause problems with your Rom? I switched from picastick due to lagging issues with Netflix.

    That's the only way I use this rom, using the bb kernel, and I haven't ever had an issue due to doing that.

    It's easier for me to use the bb kernel than to use pica and have to mess with scripting crap to get link2sd to work.

    I haven't heard of it and never had a problem with it.
    Do we have a fix? Not that I know of.

    LG and Virgin haven't exactly been forthcoming with patches at all.

    I do a lot of helping of people, but I will not hand hold someone through the entire process.

    A. That is a ton of work, that is well covered.
    B. Others have done a fine job at it and it's not my specialty.
    C. The more you learn BEFORE you start, the less questions you will have later and the safer you will be.

    D. Nandroid backup, Nandroid backup, Nandroid backup.


    Oh, and in case you missed it: Nandroid backup.
