I'm on lite'ning v1.5. No problems at all, using about 1% per hour when sleeping. Have frozen a few apps and am heavily undervolted.

DoggNZ: So I'm trying to decide between Cognition 1.7 and Lite'ning 1.5 ROMS.....decisions decisions! Anyone running Lite'ning 1.5 yet?


I switched to Cognition from Litening largely because he supplies them in a recovery-flashable format so I don't need to use Odin. Plus he's going the "keep it clean" route rather than changing themes etc.

Dev support for Cognition seems to be a bit better IMO.

There's not a great deal of difference between them, but I'm preferring Cognition.


I see Grab-a-deal has Transcend 32gb cards for $59.  A-Data & Transcend, neither are exactly "high-end" brands, but for sub-$60 it might just be worth it. Which to get....?

Edit: The actual company selling the memory cards (both of them) is "Streetbitz", a boy-racer outfit in Auckland that sells "Performace parts" (sic), they don't list a physical address and I can't find the cards on their website.

They're also listing those scammy "power bands" on the Wellington Grabadeal page, doesn't instil confidence.

I grabbed one of the A Data cards to see how it goes, I still have my Sandisk 32G C2 card which seems to do everything I need on my phone, will try some R/W tests and report back. Either way I was looking for something to through into my eee Transformer.

Do you really think Grab-a-Deal is legit though? Looks a bit dodgy, and the dude who posted it here has never posted before...

Direct Payment Solutions have confirmed they are legit. Not saying the cards are, possibly knock offs, but I am happy to risk $50 to find out.

Edit: Maybe one of the mods can check to IP to see where the dude came from.

Damn, mines going back to Clove for a warranty repair

Hasn't woken up twice in a row, had to pull battery(that wasn't the major issue)

The aerial/network has stopped working now. Tried a new sim, still nothing, think I have a dodgy connection.

Did a hard reset, format, reset, checked the debug menus, registered it manually on the network. Still nothing :(

Oh well, looks like it's back to using my dirty work nokia for the next week and a bit




I have moved across the ditch.  Now residing in Melbourne as a VOIP/Video Technical Trainer/Engineer.

nofam:

Yeah completely stock, hadn't even rooted it yet :( was going to leave it for a few months

It's odd, i think it's a borked aerial.  I can go outside with my Telecom sim and it'll pickup signal, allow me to call but no data.  Then when I go back inside, it drops off completely

With 2Degrees it's even worse, can't call or do anything outside, it picks up an Edge icon instead of the 3G or H+ now :(


Oh well, guess now I'll see how fast Clove are at warranty returns... has anyone else returned a phone to Clove in the past year?

IIRC, NZTechfreak had a problem with his first SGS last year, and they were very onto it. . . . .Mind you, he's pretty VIP.

Yeah i think I remember that one, but he purchased a new phone first?  Then sent the old one back and got a refund the next day?  Don't think I can afford that yet :(

Plus the $44 it's costing me to send it back is a pain.  I never realised how hard it would be to go back to a Nokia with such a small screen and keys...

Others have had a great experience with Clove and warranty issues too (and last year my warranty issue preceded any blogging relationship I had with them so there was no special treatment as such). There was recent thread here and the person got top notch service. I expect nothing less for vinnieg.
