This is a discussion on - ROM - JVH 2.0 - Stable within the Samsung Captivate Hacking forums, part of the Samsung Captivate category; Originally Posted by Fluffy So just to let you know about how stable this is.. I have now been running it for 7 days straight ...
I made some adjustments in the service menu and I'm going to try the Voodoo route as well. Thanks for the tip, Dorian!
I am getting random FC on Tweetdeck since last night also. No other issues or problems.
After installing JVH 2.0 I felt some lag especially when pressing the "Previous scrren" or Home buttons. This maybe was a personal thing since I was coming from a very fast XWJS8 with lagfix. I had moved to JVH 2.0 because after a freeze in XWJS8 I was getting more freezes and decided a fresh start with JVH 2.0 woulf fix the phone. Besides I was getting bored and needed some tinkering. The default Kernel version that loads when one installs this ROM ends in Reorient_G # 14 while Dorian's pictures show # 13. I also saw Dorian's reply to PabloCR regarding his problem with EXT4 and D's suggestion to try a Voodoo enabled Kernel from the XDA site. I got curious and flashed xcaliburinhand's I9000_reoriented_vG.1.2. Now after that, my Kernel reads the same as Dorian's (..._G # 13) and the phone seems to react faster.
I don't know if it is necessary to use the Voodoo lag fix apps in the Market to fully exploit this Kernel's capabilities so if anybody has any experience with this or can clarify my question please advise.
Otherwise, as before - very happy with Dorian's productions (a labor of love we can benefit from) Thanks D
Yeah, I converted to ext4 after installing the JV* compatible Talon Kernel and overclocked to 1.2ghz, with no undervolt. As soon as I try undervolting, I get random FC's and reboots. Without U/V and at the max O/C of 1.2ghz, this phone screams faster than any of the other JV* ROMs that I've tried (and I've tried them all) and is as fast as CM7 / MIUI. Now if I could only figure out how to get CarHome on this build, I'd be completely content. LOL. Otherwise, I bounced around for the last few weeks running everything under the sun, but yesterday I came back to Dorian's ROM, to stay until I upgrade to a HSPA+ compatible device in a few weeks. Then the process will start all over again I'm sure, particularly since I saw that Dorian may be cooking up a ROM for the Infuse. BUT - I am curious when the new SGS variant is coming to AT&T. Perhaps Dorian can shed some light on that?
Thanks for the update. That's likely my next device then. I can't see buying an Infuse when the SGSII is coming to AT&T. I'm curious however if the SGSII is going to be LTE capable, or just HSPA+? If it's just 3.75G, then I may wait for an LTE compatible device altogether. I can't see buying an HSPA+ phone, when AT&T's HSPA+ is capped so low. In a way, I hope the merger with T-Mobile goes through so we can get some more towers up and some additional backbone available for throughput. Even with the mass migration of I-Phone users to Verizon, I still can't get decent bandwidth anywhere in the backhaul enabled areas on a 3.5G phone, so why waste the money on the higher end device and the more expensive "4G" data package? Yes, I know, the plight of AT&T users everywhere. LOL
Installed JVH2.0 the other day and everything has been rocking, the only thing I just noticed was I have no data connection... Voice works fine.
I have both packet data and data roaming checked under network settings and ATT under available networks. Am I missing something???
