    1. If all of these bugs are fixed, then this rom will be 100% bug-free for me! The only thing missing would just be upstream stuff!

    2. Only issues I have are my battery draining faster than I want it to and my blue charge light comes on at 90% and stays on unitl I hit 100%. Other than that I am pretty happy with my cm9 ics.

    3. I couldn't be happier with this ROM. The option to turn off Capacitive button lights is a MUST. I been searching for a solution to that for days.

      1. I've tried, and failed. Spent a full week trying to port bld (backlightdimmer) from nexus s. If they can do it I'll be happy though (:

      2. On the Epic, the cap button and keyboard backlights are either on or off. There is no dimness setting ability. The lights are also turned on by hardware, not software, so it is not trivial to fix. It is on our list for the long-term.

    4. DOCK AUDIO SUPPORT!!!

      I hate having to go hunt down a kernel after flashing the newest CM9 build.

    5. I've noticed it can get very laggy at times. But I am not too sure what the issue is with that. I have tried stock kernel and third party kernel hoping that would solve it.

    6. These are the very few issues which i have with my epic 4g currently running on cm 9 a5,

      1 - music dosent work, it was working, but once i got the message after unplugging my head phones, from then on it dosent work, pops up an error message.

      2 - sms it would be nice if the smiles work in the slide key board, instead it acts as the send key, and will be very nice if the enter wokrs as next line instead of the sending. it will be very useful

      3 - facebook, i use facebook contacts as my phone book, as fb is not installed, i am unable to sync contacts, i tried other applications, but it is not convincing, no face book contacts with phone number folder.

      4 - occasionally reboots, can be a bit more game friendly

      5 - battery drains out pretty quick than usual

      still this is the best rom by far, that i have ever come across.

      thanks, Keep up the good work
      god bless you all

    7. This is a fantastic ROM for the Epic 4G! Many thanks to you all who work so hard on ICS!!! For people with battery life concerns... install JuiceDefender from the Market. The free version shuts down the data radio while still allowing calls and texts ONLY when the screen is off! It will extend your battery life tremendously. It also does turn the data back on every 15 min to allow for mail checking...

      1. In system setting -> Language & Input, click settings icon next to Android Keyboard.Uncheck Vibrate on keypress

      2. Jeephacker, you're awesome! That was driving me crazy. Haptic feedback should be disabled by default imho.

    9. Does anyone else have considerable lag in keyboard text input? Not sure what the cause or fix is.

    10. I see duplicates of my pictures in my gallery, I see pictures that were hidden in my gallery, and my phone tends to freeze itself at time

      1. Gallery has problems... we are investigating.

        Are you using the standard kernel?

        Delete
    11. Is there a way to create new lines in the messaging app. For example, I'm sending a text message to xxx-xxx-xxxx and I want it to be:

      "Line 1 text

      Line 3 text"

      Enter just sends and I've tried shift/fn enter. If not, any chance of implementing this? Preferably through an option to change whether enter key sends or not.

    12. So is porting a kernel based on 3.x.x done?

      Or is it so unfeasible that you just outright removed it for the time being?
