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 - ...

A quick google search turned up this. Does it help? Have you tried re-installing the version you were upgrading from?

Most likely this is a bug in the ROM you're using. Cyanogenmod nightly builds are unstable and often have missing functionality: they're not recommended for everyday use, only for testing. Try updating your ROM to a more stable build of Cyanogenmod, if one is available.

Looks like Toggle Mobile just doesn't work well with my setup. I bought a £2 SIM card from Lycamobile a couple months ago, and it's been working flawlessly with no setup changes. Not much of an answer I'm afraid, but I'd rather lose my remaining Toggle credit than use several more days on this.

Go into settings > about phone Toward the bottom of the list, you'll see an entry for "Build Number" Tap it 5 times and you'll see toast pop-up letting you know that the Developer Options have been enabled. Go back to the main options menu and tap Developer Options and you'll see a tick box for USB Debugging about halfway down the list.

Minitool Partition Magic did not work for me. Instead, I formatted and partitioned the card directly through adb in CWM recovery using this guide on xda-developers forums. Am using Link2SD (similar to App2SD) fine now on CM 11 KitKat 4.4.2

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 ...

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 ...

Cyanogenmod 11 is only released as nightly build and will have a few bugs, and these types of bugs are common. Unfortunately there isn't enough information in your post to nail down the problem. I Would need to know the Phone, CM build number, and would need to know if you did clean or dirty flash the last time you updated CM. Without this information my ...

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 ...

This is because option "scanning always available" is turned on in WiFi Advanced Settings. Turn it off may solve this issue. (Click on image for larger preview)

One more solution to your problem is to use an application like JuiceDefender. The answer to your questions also remains, Yes it is normal for the WiFi to be always on and as others mentioned you can either turn it off manually or let an app/OS do it for you. Some ROMs manage it well in built but still require the data to be turned off, otherwise there is ...

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 ...

Actually, wifi can be turned on or off manually, but you can set how the wifi will behave when the display is turned off - be it allways on, or turn off when screen is turned off and leave only 2G/3G/4G on. This settings can be found under the Advanced setting in menu on wifi settings page. Downside is that you are using your carriers data connection during ...

Wi-Fi is usually turned ON or OFF manually. If it's turned on, and it's not in use or phone is considered sleeping, it's still running. You might want to check with the CyanogenMod forums if there is any Wi-Fi issue for that version.

I noticed that the problem is with the word completion feature. Just set it to hide all suggestions and it will stop annoying you. The option to hide is available in the android keyboard configuration.

I had the same problem. Use minitool partition magic and set your card partition to primary partition. Apply changes and that's it.

In my case was just an app. "Lantern" - flashlight using LED. After uninstalling that app the camera was OK again.

There's no such thing as an international ROM. When you see (for example) a Cyanogenmod ROM "Samsung Galaxy S III International", it means that the ROM is for the international variant of the phone hardware, with the right drivers for that phone's hardware. The international variant might just have a different radio (to work on the right GSM frequency for ...

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 ...

Im running a Galaxy note 3 The solution to the problem i found was by using the android file browser and moving the folder/file i had downloaded to another directory that wasnt as cluttered. This enabled me to see the 50mb .rar file i had downloaded and pulled it onto my PC. I dont know if this solution will help anyone, but it worked for me. Thanks all ...

Go to system setting and language & input. (I also have CM11 but in BAM rom which includes many other roms)

Yes it is possible to do that, but you need to write your own logic to sort the names. Considering plain standard English, the sorting is done using ASCII/Unicode values, and a-z and A-Z come in a sequence, where as the other alphabets like Å, Ä or Ö come later. So when you use apps that are not specifically targetted for anything other than standard ...

I use a zagg BT kbd. I have used others, but not with this app. I use the External Keyboard Pro app from the Play Store to reassign keys. My one kvetch, and it is a serious one, is that I cannot reassign the 'Home' key that takes me back to the 'home screen' with it. And I hate that. I don't want any sort of magical keys on my kbd. That's why I'm using a ...

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.

I managed to unbrick my phone eventually. Tried to use RSD Lite with several images, but it would give an error and then the application would crash and leave my bootloader corrupt. I tried all the schemes I could find including: loading the image from root of C:, disabling UAC, etc., but nothing worked. Then I tried sbf_flash on Linux with the same image, ...

Some people have successfully installed CyanogenMod on top of 4.3 (with Knox). Refer to the official installation guide, which includes installation on the phone and on the PC.

I'm using a custom rom and I wanted to delete the AOSP browser. I simply unzipped the custom rom zip, deleted the browser apk. Then I re-zipped the rom image and flashed it as usual on TWRP. WAY TO GO :D WORKS JUST FINE!!

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 ...
