    Do the CM10.2 releases suffer from ‘clock freeze’ as CM11?

    Works smooth to me, also, I think RIL is better now, my tester is mi girlfriend, in an usual call, connection lost after 5 mins(sometime is really good :P), now is working stable, no signal lost.
    I hope this help me with my Kernel´s wakelocks.
    Some new TVs are capable to connect your phone by WiFi Direct, I found impossible to connect to visualize photos, but i can play videos by google.
    Way to go Nova! thanks!

  • mario says:

    i like 10.2. good rom
    maybe the recovery has bugs i think. also because offline charging works through the recovery software. maybe also the battery drain is a resolution of the recovery. well, thats what i think.

    I installed the last two versions and first I had problems with the update for the facebook app. It was written, there would not be enough memory space to install the app. I had several GB free on the phone and on the sd card memory so that could not be the real reason. I deinstalled facebook and now i can’t install it anymore. Furthermore I cannot install Threema anymore. It says there is an unknown error code “-24”. Does anyone know what I could do? I tried to reinstall the Play Store and Play Service but it dind’t help. The installing of a newer CM 10.2 Version (with cleaning cache and dalvik cache) also didn’t solve the problem.

  • mario says:

    safe your important things, like images and other data on sd-cart. the restis safed to goole normaly. then go in recovere and format all partition:
    – internal storage
    – data
    – cache
    – dalvik-cache.


    then make a clean install.

    I am getting loads of GSM and RIL errors in catlog. One re-ocurring one is: “error in decoding sms CB pdu” followed by the long Java error blurp. And there are lots of errors of the category “use-Rlog/RLOG-RIL” followed by crytpic error messages with RX/TX and lots of hex numbers.
    On the outside this ROM works fine for me – so thanks alot for another good 10.2 release

  • DerArndt says:

  • mcfuture says:

    Very bad akku performance, compared to the previous release. I changed nothing, like sync or apps. I got often wakelooks, by google apps.

    But i like your releases, good work! And I waiting for the next update 😉

  • Jakob Staerk says:

    I also had trouble with battery drain, however i found that it was exchange – and have pinned it down to an upgrade of gmail, after which the google accounts have a lot of options synced. After i have adjusted what needs to synced on my gmail accounts. Battery drain is more acceptable.

    I have a minor issue when locking the phone to 2g only (to conserve battery) that sometimes the phone looses signal for a minute or two.

    Anyone have a hint on how to adjust the snr level when switching from 2G to 3G, i would like to stay on 2G until the 3G signal is a bit stronger. The phone will switch at a time, where you barely have a 3G connection.
