Vivasanti: Wannathingmejig is based on LP2 thats not even an offical samsung S2 release?

Im gona flash LPQ HD again and this time use the stock kernel (i flashed the hacked one) i found the KP8 modem to be the best for 2 degrees, i always seem to have 2 bars at least no matter where i am.

Will check out CPU spy.


XWLP2 is the latest official European firmware (Russia). Source

Edit:
Have you tried undervolting or underclocking using the beta siyah kernels?

Great news about the phone. It'd feel like a limb amputation for me!

I was playing with Omega 5.2 LPQ when Siyah came out, but was using beta5 with no issues at all. 
Betterbatterystats isn't showing any unusual wakelocks? I'm a heavy user (easily use a 2000Mah Samsung battery in a day) but didn't notice any especially unusual drain myself.

If anyone would like a rubberised case for a Galaxy S II I have one I am giving away.  It came with my phone but I haven't used it. Pickup is from Telecom Place buildings in Victoria St, Auckland CBD.  It is one of these http://www.phonequip.co.nz/product/tpu-case-with-rubberised-hard-back-for-galaxy-sii

What kernel are you running?  Remember, Wi-fi is dependent on this alone, whereas voice/data/gps are all modem-related.

I've gone from stock LP7 (only ran it for a day) to Litening ROM, also LP7.  My Aunt in Australia said she was receiving double text messages (under both ROMs) yesterday.  And I'm using the new Beta Handcent app.

Pretty expensive when you're paying for the texts.  Not sure if anyone has any updates on what they've heard as far as solutions go.   Cheers.

I had a quick play with Go SMS yesterday with Omega v6.0 (LP2) and had the same problem. I tried freezing the stock app in TB as well. Never tried 3rd party apps before this though.

So far i have fixed the double messaging with Chomp, fixed the Polaris office problem, managed to work out how to re install apps that wouldn't,  but moving apps to the sd card has me fcuked.

I have been trying all day to get wallpaper working correctly.

I use just one homescreen and want to use the same wallpaper for that screen and the lockscreen. For some reason the wallpaper fits the lockscreen perfectly but blows out on the homescreen only showing a bit of it and I can scroll around to see the rest of it ><

Is there something I can do to just get that one homescreen showing the wallpaper the same as the lockscreen? Thanks!

I guess I should add that I'm on ICS using Wanamlite 9.9 and Apex launcher.

Just before I sent this I managed to turn off the scrolling, so I can no longer do that, but the picture is still way bigger than the homescreen :(

jeffnz: well tried resurrection albeit briefly it was smooth as people have said but just about everything I used would lockup and FC after about 5 minutes, most likely some easy fix


Usually wiping the cache/dalvik and a permissions fix after flashing the ROM does the trick.




always do full wipe/reset and dalvik, ok got me on the permissions, know how to get to them but not sure what you mean by changing them, to what?

Thanks

Just go into cwm recovery. Then select advanced and fix permissions. It's an automatic process, no real thinking involved. :)
