-[ROM] SSX 2.2 (2.3.7) Incl. 1% Battery and Other Goodies 10/17/11



SSX 2.2 (2.3.7) Incl. 1% Battery and Other Goodies

OK – I know you’ve been waiting for this, for a WHILE now. My life has gotten very busy and the amount of time I’ve been able to devote to Android has been dropping – this was in the hands of a few testers, a few bugs were flushed out, and here is the final product. Given that this is now a GB-kernel ROM – you MUST have .602 at a minimum. If you don’t have that first, you are looking at an SBF. Please don’t post up questions/bugs unless you have first tried a complete WIPE with no restore of apps/data and can confirm the bug exists on the stock rom.

Bottom line is I can’t help debug my ROM if you have added a different kernel, supercharger, apps, etc. Run the base ROM first to ensure you have no issues. That way if any crop up later, we can narrow it down to something else you’ve changed.

As usual I will start a bugs thread and I will TRY to keep on top of it. Very difficult these days, but that is where I’ll want any bug reports to go, not in this thread. Do not take it personally if you post it here and I do not respond – post it up in the bugs thread please 

SSX 2.2 (2.3.7)
SSX 2.2 (2.3.7) UNTHEMED

What is new:

0. GB Kernel support! I have flashed this over top of .602 – this is the base you need to get to before flashing this – if you don’t do that first, you are looking at a full SBF – remember to wipedata also before leaving recovery!
1. 2.3.7 is the Android version
2. When data is toggled via statusbar or settings – turn off data icon
3. Added to options – change low battery level warnings
4. Added to options – screen off cpu setting – SHOULD be quicker than an app, since it’s at framework level – this means maybe using 125 as low slot when before was not possible
5. Add 1% battery increments – if powered off/into recovery for long period of time – battery might be within 9% tolerance of correct when rebooted, depending on drain (possible issues correctly reading extended batteries)
6. Ability to move clock to center of status bar (any long status messages will ‘overlay’ over the clock – known issue)
7. Sense-style lockscreen (courtesy CM)
8. I’m sure other CM enhancements that I haven’t even noticed, but you will

Feel free to mirror and share the links!

I have a list of testers to thank, but gotta run for now – I will be back later to give them the credit they deserve!!

And I will thank everyone ahead of time, for helping each other out – I can’t spend as much time as I’d like to here – so if you can answer a question and help out a fellow SS’er – please do so!

    Is the battery life better than cm7’s? Also I was wondering if you were going to post about the next main update for cm7 if/when it comes out (also do you have any news regarding that). Thanks man.

      musty the battery life is a little better in my opinion… The Cm7 releases are still just nightly builds with minor improvements coming each night right now its on build 28… there is a link at the top of the cm7 page to download the nightly updates…. I will do a video when cvpcs puts out a release candidate


    I have noticed that my hardware buttons seem to have a mind of their own and only work when they want to with this ROM…When I was on Liberty v9 I had no issues. The ROM itself works perfectly though. No installation issues


    And I also cannot use Smart Keyboard Pro. Every time I go to Language and Keyboard and make sure it’s checked, it un-checks itself and I can not choose it from Input Method

    also i get a “android.process.media has stopped unexpectedly” when i try to download apps from the market. it only happend after flashing ssx. i tried formatting my sd card, the new market, deleting market cache, deleting “Media Storage” app data. all didnt work, how do i fix this?

    • http://droidmodderx.wordpress.com droidmodderx

      Did you restore system data in titaniumbackup? That will cause all kinds of fcs

      • Z

        yes, what do i do to fix this?

      • Z

        does anyone know how to fix this!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

      • http://droidmodderx.wordpress.com droidmodderx

        Turn phone off…boot into stock recovery(power+home) when android guy comes up hold down columeup+down to bring up stock recovery menu…select wipedatw/factoryreset…don’t restore system data this time

  • Z

    im also only getting about 6 hours battery, same as my dx with no rom.

    • MustyRusty

      ? you might need a new battery or something…my stock battery when I was on gingerbread stock would last 1.5 to 2 days on 1 charge.

    I installed ssx over liberty .9 via the prep file+ssx+2 flash fixes+ the cm4dx camera fix.

    I think its a great ROM. looks fantastic (lots of themes available through CM7) and runs really fast. I was able to get 2400+ on quandrant. The number and depth of options is a bit overwhelming and the animations and multi-tasking abilities are amazing.

    I am a little bummed about:
    not having swype- I am unable to load up my beta, I get all kinds of errors and FCs
    losing the camera options- the hard key doesn’t work (although I am able to go in advanced settings and use the volume to take pictures. The modes are gone (sport, portrait, etc)
    I am not able to play any videos from before I flashed the ROM (although I can see low quality video that I shot after the ROM

    I was not able to see consistent fixes or suggestions from the other boards I looked at for these issues

    But Shane, I know you and our community are likely to find some answers.

    • http://droidmodderx.wordpress.com droidmodderx

      yup fritz there are a few bugs, The camera button works fine for me although i didnt flash the cm4dx fix, i cant play older videos i shot with the camera either same as with cm4dx

  • S

    Downloaded and have had no issues. Really like it! Smooth, better than the CM& Nightly builds, although they are good too! 2300-2400 quadrant scores. Hope this DEV keeps up the good work!

  • Z

    im getting quadrant scores of up to 3177(while holding ice to the back of my phone haha). does anyone know how to fix the “android.process.media has stopped unexpectedly” error?

  • Z

    the camera button also doesnt work for me

  • mjb5041

    I tried better keyboard pro and smart keyboard pro and they both wont work. It unchecks itself and goes back to the android keyboard. How do i fix this? other than that my favorite rom nice work!

    • Z

      better keyboard works for me. im not sure if its the most current version though.

  • Simon

    Anyway I can change the message setup back and stay on this rom
