    SuD! SuD! SuD! SuD!


    Yeah, I'm still in and out these days. Still working on those two huge deals at work... multi-million dollar deals are hard to pull away from. Though I get no $$$ from the deals, I get a ton of job security. Additionally, the company is releasing a new product and I'm the Support Mgr, so I have to write the service manuals, training, etc. Super Secret Squirrel stuff, but again... if it keeps me employed, I got to keep my focus there.

    One of the two deals the company was working on was approved, so now they're scrambling to see how they can pull of the commitment. The other is still being sown. To be honest, I've got so much work that if you see me post during the day, I hope that no one here knows me IRL, as I'm likely to get canned for dinking around instead of focusing on these deals. I guess that my company's 6 Billion gross annual earnings isn't enough.

    Oh well, either way I'm still around. Wife just killed her Eris so maybe I'll get her a Fascinate since it's all kinds of sexy now with GB. And when I say Sexy, it's that kind of sexy when you're a Sailor and drunk in Thailand and you're at a place called the Bunny Bar and... wait, this is a pg rated forum right? Nevermind.

    I'm still around, so feel free to drop me a line once and a while. I still pm folks that are having issues and help them when I can. You seem to have picked up a tonne of support since I had to drop out. Kudos to you and what you've become. I do this for a living for my company, and can get worn out. Helping out here was a great way to forget about work. I wish that I could spend more time here, but I have to keep the priorities where the income is until the stress cools off. Maybe November, but it'll pick back up really quick because I have two more products to release first and second quarter of next year.

    I wonder if S Mart is hiring. Shop smart. Shop S Mart!!

    Hey, just great to see you around SuD. Pop in whenever you can even if it just to drop a quick Hi.

    Sounds great that those two projects are going well for you. Job security is definitely a big thing in this economy. After all, everyone's main focus is the same - taking care of our loved ones.

    Yeah, definitely continuing with the great crew here. It keeps expanding and rolling along. Everyone keeps saying we are all enjoying interacting with each other and getting to know each other we all want to try and move to the same phone after this to keep everyone together. Seems most of us are focused on the SGS 2 with the superamoled + display. Hoping it will be a 4G LTE phone. I'm not eligible for a discounted upgrade until 05/12, so I'll just have to hang out in that forum for a while without having the phone.

    Anyway, take care. Best of luck with the rest of the deals. And we'll look forward to your next visit.

    No, you should only use the pit file in combination with a fully stock ODIN package such as DI01, DL09, or EB01. If you are having force close issues and move on to Comm ROM it is recommended you do a full wipe of data, cache, and dalvik and the full wipe may take care of the force close issues. If it doesn't, then I would recommend fixing permissions. That script is included in Superclean 2.9.2 and Comm ROM. Download Android terminal emulator from the market. Open it up and you will see a blue screen with a $ prompt in the upper left corner and a keyboard. Type su next to the $ and hit the enter key. Terminal emulator will be granted superuser status and the keyboard will disappear. Hit the menu soft key and choose toggle keyboard and the keyboard will reappear. You will see a # next to su. Next to the # type fxpms and hit enter on the keyboard. You should see a scrolling text on the blue screen. This will take a few minutes and when it is done you will see another # sign. Back out of terminal emulator and that should take care of the force close issues.
    I followed all those steps to fix permissions but I get an error saying applet not found and broken pipe. Any clue on what I need to do?

    That's odd, because I just unzipped superclean 2.9.2 and UKB 2.0 and both contain the fix permissions script. Which ROM are you running? I will unzip it and make sure it has the fix permissions script.

    im using the ukb 2.0 pbj 50 and also installed the patch. I looked through my sd card and see a fxpms.zip in there. Do i need to flash that with cwm? I had no problems fixing permissions when i was on superclean 2.9.2.

    I saw a post or two I believe over at xda saying for some reason, the fix permissions and wipe batt stats scripts were not working with the PBJ kernel for some reason. They are definitely working with OTB and ComaVolt as I have done the fix permissions and batt stats with both kernels on CR 2.0. Sorrry, completely forgot about those posts about the PBJ kernel.

    been running this leak for about 12 hrs now... so far so good, only issue i've had so far is my bluetooth isn't working right, like the controls on the headset don't communicate with the phone. the headset works but i can't hang it up using the headset, or answer .. it's just like using a corded headset. sometimes when i turn bluetooth off on the phone and try to turn it back on i have to restart the phone for it to come back on

    new to the forum but have been watching and have seen all the great work being done by the devs. My hat goes off to them all. My experience has been pretty good with all the releases so far until now. i removed my SD card and installed this leak and after the install I added the SD card back to my fascinate and became damaged.(good thing I had an extra one). But all in all things are running smoothly. i wish there was a way to retrieve what I lost on the old SD card but oh well..

    thanks to all!!!

    By damaged do you mean formatted or non usable? some people have had success in recovering their files after a format.
    The gingerbread leak appeared to have wiped my sd card but I unmounted and rebooted my phone and everything was still there.

    the message I got on my phone was damaged and needed to format. But everytime I put it in my phone it wouldn't read it.

    Funny thing though, I redid the install and tried to read the SD card that was damaged and it read it, but did not have anything on the sd card.

    Series of interesting events... for those that care to read about someone else's events.

    Flashed CR 1.3/2.0 over the course of a couple of weeks. I did not like the performance of the battery, as I was having to charge it twice a day and saw someone state that GB was giving better performance, so I pulled the trigger. I was also having an issue where the battery seemed to be getting a bit too hot. Even though I knew that it wasn't a VZ issue, I called VZ and they told me to go into a local store and have them check the battery.

    Backed up my MicroSD card because I knew about the cards getting corrupted or wiped with the flash of the Gingerbread leak.

    Removed the card and then flashed the leak, and all was well. Re-inserted the card and went about my day. Saw that the battery was where I liked too... Topped off at the beginning of my day and didn't need to be charged until I got home from work... so I opted to put Netflix on the phone, and all was better since now I could manage my queue AND stream movies. What else could someone want?

    Then I saw something odd... a couple of apps that I stored to my memory card where I used widgets were missing from my phone's home page. I thought nothing of it, fixed it, and moved on... until it happened more and more, as well as my phone telling me that it couldn't operate my camera because I didn't have a memory card, and then the big whammy... the phone showed me a message that my memory card was damaged... failure was near absolute.

    I put the card into my read for my pc and saw that the size of the card itself incresed by 1 gb, and the card itself was overheating. Card sizes don't change, so I tried to do another backup and failed. I couldn't even format the card. It was finally dead. The controller must have failed. 99% of what I read is that if Windows can detect it but can't format it, the controller is likely fried... multiple pc's, same result. Oh well, I have a backup I can get to when I get back to work on Wednesday, so no real biggie. Time to prep the phone since I want to go to the VZ store. Phone preppe'd, and I get there:

    I go to the VZ store after EB01 wipe from GB.

    1 - They check the battery by placing it on the counter to see if it will spin. This is their hi-tech way of seeing if the cells in the pack are bad. If they're swollen, and make the pack spin like a top, then the pack is bad. WTF?

    2 - They took the phone in the back to see if they could read the card. They could not, so they replaced the card.

    3 - They're replacing the phone too. Apparently my phone gave the message that the USB was enumerating or connected when no cable was connected, so they're replacing it. I'll get it in the mail on Thursday because most all stores have to ship replacement phones these days.

    I left the store partially satisfied. The unhappy part called 611 and is now having a new battery shipped to me. I also had them clarifiy their "lemon law" rules on phone replacements.

    In short, if you have your 3rd phone and call in with a need to replace the phone again, they'll work with you on replacing the phone with a new make and model. I don't hope to have the problem with the phone, but after having to hear that this phone has the same problem my first one did (USB Enumeration when no USB was connected), I believe that something is fishy between the Fascinate and the software on the phone.

    So, there's a small part of my Saturday afternoon. Getting a replacement phone and battery, got my card replaced because the controller went bad, and preparing to get a new make and model because I fully expect this phone to have the same USB enumeration issue within a short time. First time it happened, it showed that it fully charged my batter from dead to full in 3 minutes. Ahh, the good ole days.

    BTW, I tried various data recovery utilites that have worked in the past, and they failed. I would have tried PhotoRec if I would have remembered that someone posted it here, but with a card getting hot like it was, the card was literally fried.

    Happy Saturday y'all. Have a safe and great 4th if you're in the States. If you're in England:

    Used the one from the OP, rooted it, and was very happy with it. Why do you ask?

    I can't say that GB caused my controller/card to fail, as that is a hard one for me to swallow... the card was not recoverable by any means. I have recovered thousands of images over the years for friends and family from bad cards, deleted files, formatted cards, etc. When I can't do it for myself, I just take it that it's dead, Jim.

    But the issues with the battery getting hot like the cpu was at 100% for long periods of time, I can believe. When I went to GB, the hot battery issues stopped, FC's stopped, etc. I run 90+% of my stuff off of the phone and not SD, and typically don't have an issue. When I do, I contact folks like Adrynalyne and others, and it gets fixed.

    The card was a hard failure, which could have been caused by the battery and phone getting too hot, but I'm okay with it. Stuff happens. I going to to GB the replacement phone when I get it because I've gotten too used to Netflix at lunchtime. If I get the USB enumeration issue again, well... let's just say that I'm shopping for a new phone and don't know what to get. I thought that I would get a new make and model phone when I could prove that VZ's settings for hotmail wouldn't work for me, but I agreed to take the phone home and contact Microsoft for that issue... dammit, it was a Microsoft issue, they tweaked my account, and then I could use the native email app in the phone for my hotmail account. They wouldn't tell me what it was, but they told me that they had to make changes to the hotmail account to make it work with the Android phones.

    DroidX has some seriously specific steps to do it the right way, the first time, and everytime. He's always spot on!!

    Robotech? I heard someone at work telling me that there were some new ones that were just getting released. Don't know if he meant on Netflix or just in general.

    Now if you said Starblazers!!! I'd be oooooooffff to outer space, to saaaaaave the human race!!

    I have been running the original leak (Note: I have NOT rooted.) since the 27th and have had no SD card issues. (No wipes or fried cards.) I backed up my SD card, removed my SD card when installing the leaked GB, formatted the SD card as soon as the leaked GB booted up, then copied all my files back to the sd. (my first attempt at GB was with the card in three phone the whole time and it wiped my card.

    I did this, and fried my 16gb sdcard I couldn't get a titanium backup from it, so I'm using one I stored on my computer from earlier. I only have a 4gb sdcard, and was wondering if I could take the 16gb sdcard to verizon and claim an update broke it. I went back to stock froyo, GB was freezing my phone up. Any thoughts? Thanks
