    I haven't seen any threads about a relatively new rom mindmajik called majik-wizz over at xda. Anyway, I started using it yesterday and right out of the box I got almost 15 hours battery time, which for me is pretty damn good. I encourage anyone looking for a cm based rom with some tweeks to take a look. Just a heads up

    I have tried to flash this rom a couple of times now and it keeps getting stuck in the boot animation. I'm rooted and currently running the att leak (UCLF5). Do I have to flash CM9 first? Do I do a wipe data/factory reset along with wipe cache/dalvik partition? If I do a wipe/factory reset will I lose my root? I've tried flashing using both ROM Manager and GOO Manager. Any help or ideas would be appreciated.

    I'm not sure you needed to do that being that it's based on cyanogenmod. On the first page of the rom there's a troubleshooting guide that may help. I just looked at it and there's help specifically for your situation that I'm sure will help so try reading that first. I wasn't running cm before I flashed it. I was using sky ics and was having a bunch of fc's so I actually returned to my stock rom, but sky ics was nice when not fc'ing so I don't want to take anything away from that seanz. It just was not running smoothly for me. This rom is really smooth, and I haven't had any problems at all. So basically, my method was probably not ideal for most people(going back to stock). If you can get back to your current rom try checking out the instructions for install from that perspective (not wiping data/fac reset) and just installing the zip. Breeze through the pages, as there's only about 30 so it's not like there's thousands of posts yet.

    Actually, maybe I misunderstood your post. You're rooted running the uclf5 ics leak and not already running cyanogenmod.? If you're stock ics rooted which recovery version are you using?

    Clockwork Mod 6.0.1.0 I will look over the thread you suggested and see if I find something I may have missed. Thanks.

    You should check to see where your android_secure folder is. If it's in your ext_sd card make sure that you have the right cwm recovery installed. Sk8 has 2 versions for the skyrocket depending on the location of that file.
    You didn't answer my question though, are you stock rooted or are you running cm already?

    Well, all I did was wipe data/fac reset; format system(mounts and storage--->format system); install zip from sd, install gapps; and lastly mounts and storage--->format cache. In that order and nothing else. That was to install rc1, and I updated to rc2 using the goo.im app. Let me know if I can help you out any more. But 1. Make sure you have the right recovery 2. Make sure you have a backup 3. Let her rip

    I got it working finally. Thanks for all your help. On a separate note is there an easier way to re-install all my apps other than manually. I tried Ti Backup, didn't load all my apps. Thanks again.

    That's all I can think of. If you have in your settings for Google to backup your apps that will help a little for apps like currents. But game progress would be tibu. At least you're up and running though right? What worked for you in the end

    I've been deciding if I want to try this rom or go back to CM10. I am on Embryo 5.1 and its been great so far, like a stock ICS rom but much smoother. Except I get bored real fast lol

    Hey man, give it a run. I don't have too much to compare it to except sky ics, which was nice, just not for me. By the way, thanks again for all the help last week.

    I've been using this for about two day now with not so good battery life. I'm losing about 7-8% an hour even in stand-by. Not sure what could be causing this. Wakelocks maybe? If so how can I determine if that's the case? I will give it a another day or two to settle in and hopefully that will do it. Any suggestions or thoughts would be appreciated.

    Which release are you running? Stick with r2, there's an issue being ironed out with r3 so battery draw is uncommonly high. I'm actually running liquid right now, but really like wizz so once that's worked out I'll probably go back. If you're on v3 I'm 99 percent sure that you can just flash r2 right over 3 with no issues. Just like an update but in reverse :screwy: I was getting consistent 16 to 18 on r2 but everyone will have varying results. It's not a wakelock issue, that's been established. I'm not sure what it is though. People much smarter than me are doing great battery work with that rom so definitely flash back and give it a couple days. Let me know how it works out for you

    Also bud, take a look at the v6 supercharger script. It definitely helps to manage ram, battery and erformance in general. Have you tweaked any of the performance options in settings? If I remember correctly you can uv from right in there, which would help too.

    I'm still on R2 and using V6 set on hard to kill setting. I have set the background process's at four at the most. We'll see how it holds up today. Thanks for the response.

    Restricting the background processes is probably your problem. Android is designed in such a way that having things ready to roll on the back burner is actually more efficient than not. Try unrestricting the background processes. Let me know if that helps

    Still getting high battery loss. What options are people using on V6? The R2 instructions said option 10. I'm not sure what to set the 3 oom values to in option 10. I just put in option 13 witch is the bulletproof setting. I like the look and performance of this rom but the battery life is killing me.

    I don't want to point you in the wrong direction when it comes to running a script, so double check with the v6 thread, but I ran option 8 and things were good. I think it was option 8(whichever was the option for like 768mg ram). Right now I'm using vincoms superlite with lite gapps. Figured I'd give it a whirl and its really snappy, with zero maintenance. I like the direction he's going with it....a byor(build your own ROM). I'd check out the v6 thread and if you are not comfortable simply do a clean install. You want to make sure with v6 you run as root and not at boot(99% sure). SuperLite is only like 98mb and I'm not into social networking or any real frills so for me its great. All you need are a few adjustments and you will be fine. Just read that thread and all will be good. There's plenty of people who are willing to help without trashing you so that's definitely a good thing.

    Rom and V6 setting seems to be settling in and getting better battery life. Still not the best but definitely getting better. Hopefully in a few days I'll be getting the results others are getting. Thanks for all the advise and help GOV.

    My pleasure. There's plenty of times when I need it too.
    Did you end up making changes with the supercharger or anything else? Others may have the same questions you had? And what is your battery life
