      i’m sorry to say that you can’t do anything about it… in some models the kernel that comes with the custom rom “destroys” the capacitive buttons.

    Does this 10.2 build support encryption ? I tried with several builds, but all failed to encrypt (see bug report).

    Can anyone confirm whether these “RIL improvements” have fixed issues for people coming from ALL6 Baseband, (the ones that have never had working RIL)

  • Ree says:

    waiting! because your rom is the best.

  • holmson93 says:

    HI thank you for your great job. Can you fix the issue with alternative keyboards like Swiftkey? My phone restarts very frequently. Or maybe a good keyboard could be the touchwiz keyboard. I liked that in the stock rom and i tried to install it with CWM but after flashing it doesn’t appear. Can you help me? this is the link of touchwiz keyboard that was compatible with CM7 http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1314369

  • I would love to try CM 10.2 but am worried that I cannot go _back_ to 10.1 if it’s not stable enough… for me, the order of preferences are 1) Stable 2) Secure 3) Featured 4) Speed.

  • Anil Dadwal says:

    very gud job guys keep it …

  • Starkus says:

    Maclaw, in the Stock Rom, the light on the soft button turn on when i touch them, can you put this option in the settings ? Because on the CM10.2, the light turn on when i touch the screen. Sorry for my bad english.

  • Whoop says:

    Thank Maclaw for your work, im writing reply on each version and neither receive answer to question, i understand, many users are reply here, i only hope that you or your team read this reply of bug:)
    Ps. i note that i xda forum you answer more than here(of course the reason is the more professional developer users on xda)

  • alex vour says:

    i’ve been using 10.2 since 21-10 version and here are the bugs that i’ve encountered:
    1) audio quality with headphones is worse than any cm 10.1, especially the bass
    2) i have about 1 random reboot per day
    3) default alarm clock refuses to work, everytime it’s time for it to ring the phone reboots
    4) flashlight turns itself sometimes on
    5) proximity sensor doesn’t work well and sometimes my phone reboots after a call has ended and lastly (which is a cm bug) compass doesn’t work
    6) my capacitive buttons won’t work even when i flashed the rom via odin (it’s a kernel problem, i’ve posted my phone details on the xda cap buttons problem post)
    apart from that it’s a stable rom for everyday use and it’s the one i’m using now. thanks a lot maclaw!!!

  • Squashimo says:

  • JhonnyB says:

    thank you.
