  1. I flash my Samsung GT I9000 with your rom,but having same issue. if I got incoming call while making internet call,the internet call hang up and if we receive that incoming call there is no voice.even if I place new normal call.It happens until next boot.

    • hmmm… right… since this ROM is still in the development stage… there are bound to be issues of this kind… any ways do keep writing!! :)

  2. flashed my galaxy s i900 with this rom, works very well,
    I have also flashed these ics, gamerz, ic passion, fox hound all ics ,
    I like this one best just personal choice,i realise its under developement
    I would like to see the face lock working,and radio would be nice but
    not important to me.
    thanks for the time consuming work.

  3. Am facing HHB (hello hello bug) on all the ICS rom including this one. Tried 6 different modems CWM flashable one but in vain. Am from India, is there any solution for this?

    • hmmm which network operator are you subscribed to??? Because I’m myself using BSNL 3G and Airtel 3G with the XXJVU Modem and have not faced any major problem except for some occasional Force Close for the phone.apk

      • I am on Airtel too. XXJVU is the default modem with this rom, if i am not wrong. Or you flashed one later on? Problem with incoming call, am able to hear others properly but my voice is not clear to them.

        • Nah… it has JVU by default I don’t think you need to flash it again… Any ways if you are not able to make a call in that case, just try to make factory reset, clear all cache from recovery and flash XXJVU again. By the way, which ROM were you using before porting to this one??

  4. APN’s? allways Backup your EFS when you flash your phone.

    You can find EFS is root/sytem. Make a backup to your exteral sd and DropBox. Have fun

    Nice work Phanse
