First, love what you do keep up the work.

Second, is this for stable or can it be used with the nightlies? Been running nightlies quite a bit lately but if needed could stick with the last stable and give this a run. I have one of those 10% perfect devices and want to see if I can push it hard enough where it pushes back out of anger. Willing to try something at least once, twice to make sure I don't like it lol.

you can use it with the nightlies no problem
Thanks. Wasn't sure.

This kernel is like warm melted butter rubbed all over you on a cold night... Thanks for this. Since my first flash, Gps never really worked but now it does (I have one of those 10% of Vibrants that actually worked right). The battery is charging right and lasting me a full day (16 hours) as a heavy user. Was running Glitch v12 beta 3 waiting for v13 but think this will suit me just fine. Using your updated w/bln support and haven't found an issue yet! Thanks to you and all who contributed!!! Couldn't be happier now c(=

Kickin it with the ZenMafia Family...

GPS still not working for me I am on nightly 166 after 5 min or so I get 2 sats in view and no locks
I'm using it on OMFGB and it took me some time to get the GPS working but it seems to be pretty good now. I had to use a combination of AngryGPS, GPS Aids and the CM7/MIUI GPS fix 1.5. I think the sequence was use AngryGPS to delete the GPS data, set to Cold Start, use CWM to Recovery, flash the GPS fix, power down reboot, use GPS Aids to DL the aiding data, power down reboot again (Quick reboot didn't seem to work), start AngryGPS and do a TTF test and wait until it locks. Exit/restart AGPS and run the TTF test should be much quicker. In AGPS change it back to HotStart. Run the test again and it should lock up pretty quick again. I then used GPS Aids GPS Status to check accuracy. I was as good as 13 feet outdoor with 8 out of 10-11 birds, and about 20-22 feet indoor I where I usually couldn't get a lock. I'm not sure that was the sequence but I played with it awhile using those tools.

Eugene, is this the same kernel that is slated for nightlie #169? I ask because I had seen that .14 was set to be included by the build bot but didn't know if this had a extra twist to it.

Is anyone having trouble with wifi with the latest build from 11-3? I had to go back to the previous build since wifi kept giving an error and would not connect.

Hi Eugene,

Thanks for the quick turnaround. Just updated to latest build and wifi seems to be working fine now.

Good luck with the Nexus S.
