Re: Firmware 2.4.81 released - report bugs here

Now that we have ?stable? firmware it would be nice to get started on 2.3 build. Maybe even ICS, even SDE ICS would be nice. It has been done before on 1GHz CPU, don't know about 256MB RAM but... ICS is optimized a lot...

maybe some community edition? :)

I'm fine bdw with my A70 for now.

I'm not sure about missing apps after update, but market is there. I've done clean install and added market support using arctools.

Re: Firmware 2.4.81 released - report bugs here

I didn't play a lot with this firmware but 118h of use so far. I'm not sure if I charged it once or twice but I'm at 60% battery and I don't seem to have any battery drain so far. Other than new firmware, I've removed plume and weather widgets from my home screen and most of the icons I had. I've do...

Re: Firmware 2.4.81 released - report bugs here

Is it revertible to .19? Update: I've installed .81. Runs smooth, power consumption seams fixed. Left it to charge over night, unplugged it this morning, it was in deep sleep. 6h later, power is at 100%, so no power usage while in deep sleep. probably will drop % or two right after usage start but t...

Re: Firmware 2.4.80 released - report bugs here

Sorry, I couldn't be without tablet without any apps so I had to reformat and go from scratch. As mentioned before, IF I get some free time I will reinstall all apps as before and test it on .19 and upgrade to .80. If the drain persists I will again uninstall all apps and check back with you guys wi...

Re: Firmware 2.4.80 released - report bugs here

Problem is that I had the same apps installed on old .19 than updated to .65 than .80. Funny thing is, that battery log would show only idle 50% and WiFi 50% usage. There is no mentioning of any other program or service that would show what was going on while tablet was in a / deep sleep / I've wipe...

I've deleted all my apps, I know, extreme move :D

WiFi left on, green light goes out. Don't know if it will drain battery now when / sleeping /...

I'm gonna revert now to .19 just until this is sorted out.

Re: Firmware 2.4.80 released - report bugs here

@Ominous: And you have switched the "Switch Powersaveing mode off" not selected? I really hate this naming, switch off the switch off, who was that silly? Enabling/Disabling power saving on wifi made no difference. On earlier firmwares I had disabled power saving on wifi and deep sleep enabled. In ...

Re: Firmware 2.4.80 released - report bugs here

Seams you don't get my point. There are times when we complain about battery drains that are not firmware related, this one is. There is something that keeps device from going to sleep. As far as I can tell it's because of the wifi. In my case my tablet goes to sleep when I press power button and tu...

Re: Firmware 2.4.80 released - report bugs here

Hi, my 101 definitely takes more power since the upgrade. I first realized I had the google sync widget on which apparently drained the battery even with wifi off. I threw the widget in the trash and now it takes a couple of points of battery overnight in deep sleep. Another thing I noticed is that...

Re: Firmware 2.4.80 released - report bugs here

No, there is no temp-root without the SDE atm. Why don't you want to install the SDE? Warrenty? There is no real reason not to install SDE. I'm taking it easy :) The nearest place where I can send it if I brick it is 2 countries away :) It would be too long to sit without it. And if I go the SDE wa...

Re: Firmware 2.4.80 released - report bugs here

I should have been more specific, is there a non SDE temp root? there was, if I'm not mistaken, on 2.o.71 wlan local exploit that allowed temp root without need for SDE.

Re: Firmware 2.4.80 released - report bugs here

Could someone point me to the working temp root for this firmware, tried archangel.... no luck
I would like to backup my settings and apps and try reinstalling firmware to solve this deep sleep puzzle.

Re: Firmware 2.4.80 released - report bugs here

Seams like I have to turn off WiFi to make my A70IT go to deep sleep. If I leave WiFi on and press PW button, green light is left on. No wake up/sleep locks found in services monitor.

Re: Change mac

I'm sure the reason for this is not neighbor's WiFi settings to block some MAC addresses :)
