    Unfortunately I think this issue is going to cause more and more regressions until you find what causes it. I tinker with it pretty much every night but have not hit on an answer yet. I am thinking about finding a gallery / music from a unit that does not have the /nand part.

    Were the lockups random or could they be reliably reproduced? If it's something that can be reproduced, I may be able to find the relevant source to attempt to fix it..

    Sometimes it would lock up on the desktop without doing anything else and other times it would lock up as soon as I pushed the settings icon

    Sounds like jit issues. On my device, cache wipes fixed the lockups.. I'll see if I can't find some answers when I get home tonight.

    I have went back and forth with the normal firmware and watery 3 times to verify that the Mic problem us only when I'm using watery and I found that with the Facebook apparently it won't show the user pics in chat or on friends list

    I just noticed that it also wont load the images from this forums app

    Hey,

    Yes it is totally just random, NORMAL JIT issues. I am just sitting down to mess with it again and have about an hour. I beleive the Music and other app issues have to do with the ASOP overlay.

    Cheers

    Same here will lockup at boot up. also when trying to install wallpapers. going back to 1.1 it worked the best for me

    thanks L_N for the great work you are doing.....

    The overlay was graciously lifted from asure's cyanogen git repo. I know I'm just missing the common dependency for those apk's.

    I'll upload another flashable zip that will disable jit (essentially reverting to 1.2a) later.

    I know a lot of the roms that I tried for my hero that had jit enabled caused some lag and reboot issues. I am wondering if the tablets are experiencing the same thing. It seems like some phones could handle jit and others could not. This whole thing would be so much easier if we had the kernel source.

    had lock up problems with 1.2b, so installed 1.2a, worked really good except that browser crashed on every start. copied browser.apk from 1.2b to 1.2a using root explorer and now working great. thanks for this custom rom. it feels really snappier

    Hello,

    My understanding is that Asure built that repo, it is similiar to Cyanogen but different in it's own rights.

    Peace

    Hey man, wanted to say thanks for this - far as I can find this is the only custom ROM for the kyros that there is (except the cynogenmod port, but it's still too buggy for me).
    Got my Kyros on Monday (first android device, I'm actually a pretty hardcore BlackBerry user (don't flame me :D)), been running this since tuesday. Well done.
    Installing that patch now :)
    PS - you got my first post lol
