Hmmm....my Menu and Back Buttons don't light up anymore. Not sure if it's hardware related or the Lite'ning ROM 1.4. They still work so not the end of the world

I've noticed that the SGS2 has the same half-arsed bluetooth configuration that my NexusOne had, if you like using it with a carkit, then you might want to try replacing the contents of the existing /system/etc/bluetooth/audio.conf with the following which gives it some more protocol support and gets it to autoconnect to the headunit when both are turned on and enabled - it reportedly helps with some handsfree units too:

[General]
Enable=Sink,Control,Headset,Gateway,Source
Disable=
Master=true
AutoConnect=true
HFP=true
MaxConnections=3
[A2DP]
SBCSources=1
MPEG12Sources=0
[AVRCP]
InputDeviceName=AVRCP

Hi Tony.  I'm in Chch but I'm  [shhhhhh]  a  g.i.r.l

Happy to meet in a well lit, public place so that you feel safe Tongue out

However, since I don't possess a decent amount of testosterone I may not really "get it" when it comes to games that require violence, blood and gore so my understanding and use of Android and the SGS may not be very useful to you.


Hi Laughing

I have met a few girls before so I think we'll be ok Tongue out

I can get my fill of bloodthirsty games on the PS3 and PC, so I'm more interested in getting good use out of my $1200 phone other than sms and calling people Wink

What kind of stuff do you do with your phone?

Cheers
Tony

jpanwala: I believe you kept your prepay VF number but changed to a plan, is that right?

In that case, it does take up to 24 hrs for data access to be active on your new plan. All other services will be active the instant you put your sim in and power up, except data. This does not apply to new contracts with a new number. Only when changing prepay to plan and keeping the same prepay number.


Yes that correct.  I noticed that my new account wasn't accessible on the VF site yesterday either - it told me to check back later, so I suspect the provisioning is related to this too.

Edit:

Intratech on XDA has very kindly found and uploaded the genuine VFNZ firmware:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1113928

LEGEND! Smile


And very decent of you to shout a drink.  Nice going :)

I used SOC to do the root and then flashed the original kernel.  I'm sure by now you've found the method that suits you best :)


Yeah I'm really tempted to judt flash Litening to be honest!!


Ended up flashing the CF-Root kernel to get root access, copied /efs for safe keeping, and then flashed Lite'ning 1.4 - phone does seem a bit snappier.




Life is mostly froth and bubble, two things stand like stone - kindness in another's trouble, courage in your own.

SGSIII
ROM: WanamLite v1.3    Kernel: Ninphetamine v1.1.0   Modem: DXLEA

SGSII (Now belongs to SWMBO)
ROM: WanamLite v12     Kernel: Siyah v3.3.2   Modem: BVLPB

SGS
 (Cat's chew toy)

If you need a download-mode jig ASAP, you're welcome to borrow mine!  Works with SGS I/II/III.  I also have a SIM cutter available (Dunedin) - happy to post either to you at your cost.

No, was on contract, I still had a 8gb card from my last phone so no big deal

FWIW, warehouse stationery have 8 and 16gb cards for $30 & $50 respectively

Boot the phone into recovery mode (long press the power button and select Recovery) and there is the normal cache, with the dalvik cache stashed the next level down under advanced. It's apparently good practice to clear both before flashing, but I haven't yet...

Anyway, clear them and reboot. If that doesn't work try reflashing the Rom. If that still doesn't work (won't take long) ask a question on the Lite'ning Rom XDA thread.

Thanks Steve, I have a problem on bluetooth when listening to music whereby it drops out sporadically for about 2 secs but I think this is something to do with WIFI scanning as I had it on my HTC Desire also, but cant remember how i fixed it besides turning off wifi.

I find the phone is slow to connect a call when on handsfree (through the car stereo) compared with my Desire so will give this a shot.
