Technically, you are not allowed to "install Gapps manually" unless your phone already comes with them pre-installed. The Google Apps package (that includes Google Play Services, Play Store, and several other apps) is Google's intellectual property, and nobody is allowed to distribute it, except for Google's certified partners that have passed CTS. For ...

The advantage to closed source apps is that I can write my app and add features and then sell it. This makes me money. But if it is open source, other people can fork the source code for my app and modify it. They might even make it better. But then I'm not getting any money because they are using the better version although I was the first one to come up ...

As far as I now Android device slowdown can occur for several reasons: Very low amount of free RAM. Check under Settings>Apps>Running how much free RAM you have If your free RAM is too low (70-150MB or less) it's probably the cause so check which app/apps, if it's not an app maybe it's a bug in the ROM. (see 3) Low free space on internal storage. (check ...

Its actually ok to install Gapps, or any other zip packages (if they're meant to be flashed), after Cyanogenmod has been installed. You'd use the Install zip from sdcard option while in Recovery mode (presumably ClockworkMod, if you followed CM's install guide) to flash the Gapps zip file. Then reboot your device and after that you'll notice that it will ...

I hate to answer my phone question on here, but finally sorted it! Thanks to Adach1979 for pointing me towards a useful resource too. In the end I had to put CM10.2 onto the SD card and install that using CWM - it wiped all of my data (urgh) but at least the phone was working again. I then used Cyanogenmod's fantastic installer to get the latest version - ...

I would suggest a full wipe to determine if it's a hardware or software issue. You can save data from your apps through a utility like Titanium Backup (be sure to copy the backup files out of your device after you have performed the backup tasks). Just to be sure, did you change the runtime to ART or are you still on Dalvik? ART is extremely unstable on ...

Cyanogenmod nightly builds are unstable and will show bugs like this from time to time. They're really not suitable for everyday use, and sooner or later one of these bugs might wipe all your data, or turn your phone into a pocket heater by running the CPU at 100% continuously. To avoid the problem you've seen, either update (downdate) to a nightly that ...

The Wi-Fi device inside your phone (that includes the radio transceiver as well as the hardware that decodes the signals and tells the main CPU of the phone) has several different power states. Even when the Wi-Fi is on, after it's idle for several seconds, the Wi-Fi device goes into a low-power state. In this state, it's still connected, and can still ...

CyanogenMod does not officially support the Epic 4G Touch (SPH-D710) phone. Your best bet would be finding an unofficial port over at XDA-Developers forums. From the looks of it, Jelly Bean 4.2.2 and 4.3.1 are the latest versions of custom ROMs that are available. These are not pure CM though. Details and installation instructions at the links.

So I went digging in the Cyanogen source code. It appears that settings work as follows: The brightness is determined from ambient light sensor based on spline (can be changed in "Adjust"). Brightness adjustment - Makes overall auto-brightness result darker or lighter by affecting gamma value. Centering the slider means "no change". Adjust to sunrise and ...
