This is a discussion on -ROM- Dorian's UGJK3 FroYo - Gingerbread Edition within the Samsung Captivate Hacking forums, part of the Samsung Captivate category; Originally Posted by vic007 DaUnderSherif If I understand you correctly - you gave JS5 a try and returned to UGJK3 ? I am now on ...
Correct. I'm sticking with JS5 until a 2.3 comes out that's stable. JS5 is just slightly more stable than the UGJK3 build (on my device anyway). The overclock works well, battery life is acceptable, wi-fi doesn't fail to come out of sleep mode, no phone force closes - all of which I experienced on UGJK3, albeit intermittently. Hope this helps clarify.
Thanks for the clrificatio DaUnderSherif
I was thinking of moving to JS5 and now after your clarification I will. In UGJK3 I do get some phone force clses and battery life is not yet as good as I would like it to be.
If I put the v6.zip file on the phone, can I execute it from the recovery screen?
So I have found another problem with this one as I was toying around with other items. The Gingerbread keyboard in this causes force closes. It doesnt not work.. This is with the default ROM as well at-least on my phone.
Also there is another problem I listed which is answer the phone while speakers are plugged into it.. If you answer the phone with normal speakers plugged in and not headphone speakers you can not talk. If you hang up you are fine again.. This is repeatable and I believe I have reported this as well before.
The email "fix for security" works great but causes "connection errors" alot while getting email from Exchange Servers.. If I don't use that patch I do not get connections errors.
Also if you unplug the headphone from the speaker jack it will pop open the music player (I believe I have reported that as well)
You know the current release has a stale/old copy of Swype.. I posted a fix/work around for that.
Bluetooth bug.. If you turn bluetooth on.. Bond it to a bluetooth device and then walk away out of range from it and answer the phone it will just hangup the call instantly and then report the call "missed" to resolve the issue you turn off bluetooth and then it works again. I found this repeatable as well.
There are times when you can not connect to market.. After a reboot it works fine..
Settings/Applications/Development/Stay awake enabled works great until reboot.. Doesn't save that setting. Will revert back to being off after a reboot.
All and all Dorian I have to say this is the most solid ROM I have tried in the 2.2 tree. I am impressed with the work you have put behind that and applaud you.. BRAVO sir..
If you like this version - then for more stability - give the JS8 build over in the BETA thread a run. It's been my daily driver since the first beta (it's now at RC1 and stable) - just a thought.
Bit a BIG bullet last night, bought the new Samsung Skyrocket. This is the AT&T version of the Galaxy S II, with LTE. Truly an amazing phone. Speedtest reported today download of 12.8 and upload of 8.8, amazing - way more than my upgraded U-Verse throttled to 6 at home.
Phone reports it is an SGH-I727, running 2.3.5 Gingerbread.UCKJ2 with the 22.214.171.124 kernel. It lists "baseband version" asI727UCKJ2.
Used the heck out of it today, off the charger at 6:15AM and the battery was down to 5% at 4:20PM. Over 2 hours of phone talk time.
All I can say is, wow. Sweet smoothness.
Now, how do I root it and make it better?
