I'll keep this topic updated, so we do not have to make a new thread for the bugs every week. I hope the developer will get this information somehow, so we can help them to develop this amazing rom and make it better and better. :)


I'm far away from keyboard. Next update is coming on 1st, September.
Actual version: 2.8.17

Fixed:

  • Mobile Networks / Network Operator - Leaded to a Froce Close in previous versions, working properly now.
  • System/Phone/About - Finally it has been fixed. Thanks! :)
Bugs/Problems:

  • LBE Guard: Granting root acces doesn't work properly, File Manager applications can not reach the system folders like root/Data or root/sys
    Temporary fix: Install and use SuperSU from Google Play
  • Settings/Personal/Security & Privacy/Credential Storage/Install from SD Card Leads to a FC
  • Phone Freezes after using USB File Transfer mode.
  • WiFi toggle randomly stucks in (not sure, just thinking)
  • Unread SMS count and message preview does not show on lockscreen
  • Transparent Lockscreen Wallpaper has gone. We have got it as a feature but now we do not have it.
Please always try to make a clean install without using backup before you report a new bug or problem.

    Temporary fix: Install and use SuperSU from Google Play
  • Move to SD option is unavaiable

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bugs in version 2.7.20

Bugs/Problems:

  • LBE Guard: Granting root acces doesn't work properly, File Manager applications can not reach the system folders like root/Data or root/sys
    Temporary fix: Install and use SuperSU from Google Play
  • Music player drains battery: It works normally when the phone is not locked, but drains the battery when it is. The problem is caused by the default lock screen (the circle-shaped one) and there is no problem if another lockscreen is activated.
    Temporary fix: Use another lock screen. The secondary default is working fine (the one with the slide down mechanism)
  • GPS not working: Location has been set to North America by default.
    Temporary fix: Use "FasterFix" from Google Play and set your location in the program. After that the GPS will work properly.
  • Move App to SD card option not available.
  • Copy contacts to clipboard not working. You get message contact is copied to clipboard but when you paste nothing happens. This has been there since the beginning,reported about 15 times and never got a response.
  • Gallery crashes if it has too many folders/pictures in it. I recently put 300 different ebooks in my phone and because of the amount of covers the gallery had to load, it would crash every time until I removed them

Adding to the list after confirming all of the above
  • LBE Guard: Granting root acces doesn't work properly, File Manager applications can not reach the system folders like root/Data or root/sys
    Temporary fix: Install and use SuperSU from Google Play
  • Music player drains battery: It works normally when the phone is not locked, but drains the battery when it is. The problem is caused by the default lock screen (the circle-shaped one) and there is no problem if another lockscreen is activated.
    Temporary fix: Use another lock screen. The secondary default is working fine (the one with the slide down mechanism)
  • GPS not working: Location has been set to North America by default.
    Temporary fix: Use "FasterFix" from Google Play and set your location in the program. After that the GPS will work properly.
  • Move Apps2SD card option not available...not sure if this is a bug but please can someone confirm?
  • Copy contacts to clipboard not working. You get message contact is copied to clipboard but when you paste nothing happens. This has been there since the beginning,reported about 15 times and never got a response. It should be a very easy fix...
  • Gallery crashes if it has too many folders/pictures in it. I recently put 300 different ebooks in my phone and because of the amount of covers the gallery had to load, it would crash every time until I removed them

About under Settings / Status crash as before.
Don't say that GPS isn't working, it's just not as fast to get a position as when it's set right.

Can confirm that Music CPU, LBE Permissions and GPS fix work like a charm!

Nicely done by adding how to fix under!

I get very frequent complete phone freeze/crashes when using DOLPHIN HD browser. Can anyone else try the browser and let me know if they get this kind of problems?

Isnt this just messed up translation, or messed up arrays? In my language (here translated back to english), the headline says "Turn off WiFi automatically" and i get these 3 options: when screen turns off, when not connected, never - and it works just like it says..

sorry my bad....i was directly referring to the problem...it says "keep wifi on during sleep" and the options we get 1.Always, 2.only when plugged in 3. never.

try selecting never but it doesn't work, the wifi is always enabled (draining battery) which we can see in the battery usage graph...
