This is a discussion on The Beta Thread within the Samsung Captivate Hacking forums, part of the Samsung Captivate category; Originally Posted by Fluffy I noticed that using this it is recording my calls by default.. I love the fact that I can record calls ...
Is the JS8 V1 Update 1-2 that Dorian links to on the first post the latest version of JS8 with all the patches to date, or is V1.1.3 later in the thread the latest and the greatest? Getting ready to take the plunge from JK3 V6 Citrus, unless you folks advise me not to real soon!
You can record calls now.. However you will need to look further back in this thread to be able to turn it off be default
The UI in my opinion is much cleaner then his previous.. Just looks better.. Sorry Dorian
Facebook integration seems slightly better on the contacts..
Email no admin hack default installed into it as an options (Well done here)
New Boot screen.. (Not really a feature but worth mentioning)
I believe this is overclocked as well with Voltage.
New Music player in it.. I like this one better
a few new apk's added not worthy of listing but they are there
Has OTA feature in the setup.. I dont know if this will OTA default.. But it is there now
Has Teathering USB as well as Mobile AP
And I am sure Dorian has a massive listing of changes that I am missing.. Those where the ones that caught my eye.. Well worth it.. Not many bugs that I have found..
It has dropped a call on me twice so far.. Might be a modem difference in his previous..
The screen blacked once on me launching into applications... (Only once)
Same issue with unplugging the headphones and it bringing up the music player.. That REALLY bugs me (Not a show stopper just makes me cringe)
The Exchange now instead of saying Can not Connect now just sits there "syncing" from time to time.. Not really sure what that is..
Other then that.. Nothing I have noticed..
Hey Guys...I've been browsing around on this forum for a few days now...READ TONS OF POSTS...upgraded from 2.1 to 2.2 back to 2.1 to dorians ugjk3 back to 2.1 and NOW im using dorians js8...first off I gotta say thank you dorian!!! this is sooo much better than using the crappy stock att anroid. I use my phone for my car audio...and it sounds alot better with the built in equilizers and amp...SOO many more settings...so again...I wanna say thanks...
My question however tho is....am I the only one having problems connecting my laptop to my phone using mobile ap? am I missing something? I know how to use wifi...but is there something I need to edit? I downloaded wireless tether and I can get a connection through that (kinda slow however) but even with 5 bars of signal on my phone and my laptop saying that it is connected...it tells me that it has either limited connectivity or no internet access? Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?
I used to use kies to tether via USB before I rooted and that worked fine...but heck...if I'll be able to use wifi to connect...I won't bother carrying my usb cable around with me
i cant get the mobile ap to work
A little update on the beta, I have run into a couple problems..
First and foremost I get about 1 full day worth of use out of it before this ROM hard locks, becomes unresponsive and it is at random places, once was when I exited Camera the other time was I was inside Applications scrolling. About 24 hours later hard locks and I need to remove battery to reboot it..
Secondly I get a problem when I get a call from time to time, I get a call when it is in sleep mode (In my pocket screen powered off for a while) call comes in, I go to slide from left to right to answer and screen is unresponsive.. If I hit the power button to turn the screen off then back on it works otherwise the touch screen doesn't work.
Another issue is it was charging, got to full vibrated and then powered off
Also you dont have the letters on the Phone Keyboard.. Kinda hard to dial a number 800-dumb-company once in a call.. Dialing initally is fine but IN a call it is not there.
-THIS- from recovery. That is the updated Onyx kernel from Existz at XDA.
FYI for anyone.. If you do this.. Hold power button while running and it will bring up the shut down menu.. Select Recovery and then install from SD Card.. Or you can VOL + / VOL - and Power Button to get to it..
