    because small navbar improves the display surface and is more polished/cute. 😉

    I hope in a future release with this feature.Thanks!

    Help! It looks like after the upgrade to B22, I lost all my Exchange/Corp email accounts and I can’t add them back in (no option). Was Exchange accidentally omitted from this build? If so, it’s a major concern for those of us with corp emails.

    Thanks,
    Danny

  7. December 2nd, 2012 at 16:57 | #7

    I fixed and will be included in next build. I a bit I may upload an addon zip to fix it quickier

    Commotio 23 seems to have broken my WiFi. It says that it is connected but I can not browse any pages or download anything.

  9. December 5th, 2012 at 20:29 | #9

    @deric

    I cannot replicate this. What build, devise, clean or dirty install?

    @DHO

    VZW galaxy nexus build 23 clean install…I wiped everything again just to check, and re installed…same result. wifi signal comes on and stays grey (doesn’t turn blue like usual) and unable to sync data, download/load webpages, etc. Don’t know…maybe just me.

    Is B27 for Toro posted yet? Also, are there notes on where to find the new features (clock mods, LED notification, Zen V15, selectable gtalk, and more)?

  12. December 23rd, 2012 at 10:06 | #12

    Likely out this afternoon. Am trying to decide if I like the kernel

    Hello, The call volume is too lower… How can i solve it?

  14. January 1st, 2013 at 11:39 | #14

    Which build?

    Also you can try enabling Volume Boost in the Vanir Config

    DHO, has B30 been posted yet? I can’t seem to find it.

    I like your ROMs; I just tried your latest ROM.
    I was curious though, does the ROM have init.d support, or support tweaks such as those found in: http://androidforums.com/sony-ericsson-xperia-mini/538098-tips-tricks-tweaks-power-boosting-your-android-phone.html. I was reading some of the build.prop and it looks like some of those are all ready enabled.

  18. January 8th, 2013 at 21:55 | #18

    Yep, fully enabled

    Thanks for the feedback
    This is on the radar, it will likely require a re-write of this feature.

    I’m not much of a developer so forgive me but how do i enable the status/navigation mods?

  24. January 15th, 2013 at 18:48 | #24

    Sure, go to Settings –> Display and you will see menus for each.

    Is there anyway that you know of to enable the older Bluetooth Stacks so that the Wiimote works with 4.2.1.?

  26. January 25th, 2013 at 18:14 | #26

    I am not sure,… I will do a quick google for it

  27. Shawn
    January 25th, 2013 at 18:20 | #27

    Or possibly a flashable zip that would allow me to use 4.1.2’s Bluetooth.sh

  28. January 25th, 2013 at 19:36 | #28

    @Shawn

    Unfortunately that would not work,… it would be missing too many dependencies.

    I browsed CM 10 and google and did not see a solution, but will keep an eye out. I am not sure of the spec that wiimote needs, if I can find the technicals I can port it.

  29. Shawn
    January 25th, 2013 at 19:44 | #29

    that would be great. Thank you so much for looking. Love your rom. Ive been on board since b27 and have’nt found anything as smooth and efficient as this. Thanks

    I seem to be running into alot of bugs with this rom. Random lock ups. Google Now not working with the swipe up gesture. Phone calls coming in but being unable to answer them as the screen completley blacks out. phone then resets and there is no record of a call coming in besides a voicemail being left. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thank You

  31. January 31st, 2013 at 18:16 | #31

    @Shawn
    Perhaps try a clean install? Or a new kernel?

    The google now not working the navi ring is a known issue, I have been unable to pinpoint.

    Aside from that I have not experienced the other issues nor heard them in other forums. If you send me a logcat of any crashes or errors it would be much appreciated and allow me to better fix things for you 😉

  32. February 7th, 2013 at 12:10 | #32

    Hello DHO,
    I’m OU’][‘lander from XDA, first of all thanks for your great work, this ROM is really awsome.
    I have been testing your B36-Commotio-MAGURO since 05/02, and i have noticed only today that the sound volume of voice calls is very low, even if it’s setted to max. Would you mind checking it?

  33. February 7th, 2013 at 17:32 | #33

    This issue seems to come and go on Maguro and I have trouble narrowing it down.
    Sometimes lowering the volume -1 then raising will fix. but yes I am looking into it.

  34. DK
    February 8th, 2013 at 09:49 | #34

    DHO – I have that same volume issue with both handset and speakerphone. You are right about lowering and raising, that seems to fix things sometimes. This is on Toro.

  35. Shawn
    February 11th, 2013 at 16:45 | #35

    Hey DHO, Any way of porting over some of the touchwiz motion controls into the rom. I think those would be some cool features to have. Like pulling up the contact and then bringing the phone to your ear to initiate call and such.. Thanks in advance for a great rom

  36. February 13th, 2013 at 21:03 | #36

    My understanding is TouchWhiz is closed source. I have not used it in years, so I am uncertain of what it currently offers. It would be easy to port if found in any open source ROMS.
    It would like be possible t add to my branch of Speaker Proximity by making a few new java files,… It’s something to think about.

    Guys, I’m on M5-B42_commotio-Maguro……I have very low call volume as well. I just can’t hear people on the other side…any suggestion?

  39. March 11th, 2013 at 15:41 | #39

    Turn the volume down then up.
    I will try to get a fix out today address this

  40. March 15th, 2013 at 00:00 | #40

    I tend not to leave many comments, however I looked at a
    great deal of remarks on this page [ROM] Commotio – Toro – Toroplus – Maguro – Android 4.
    1.2 | DHO. I actually do have 2 questions for you if
    it’s allright. Is it just me or do a few of the remarks come across like they are written by brain dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are writing at other online social sites, I’d
    like to follow you. Could you post a list of every one of your social
    networking sites like your Facebook page, twitter
    feed, or linkedin profile?

    Im on the latest version of your rom. with the 4.2.2 radios as well. and i seem to have a lot of difficulty getting a gps lock.. any tips?

  43. March 15th, 2013 at 17:15 | #43

    @Shawn
    If you look in the system/etc folder I have several files names gps.old, gps.old2 and so on. If you can rename these files to gps.conf to see if some of the older configurations work.

    GPS is fickle, seem to work great for a month or 2 then it changes yet again.

    Do we need Gapps separately for b46? or is it baked in as usual

  46. April 5th, 2013 at 16:37 | #46

    @Shawn

    With Commotio separate Gapps are never required

  47. Shawn
    April 9th, 2013 at 19:28 | #47

    Yea thats what i was thinking.. for some reason with the goodownload application the gapps showed up and usually that only appears when its needed for roms… Thanks again for the tech support

    I wanted to report an issue on my toro (vzw) Galaxy Nexus with B49. It seems as if i can’t play any music as it will lock up my phone and i’ll have to pull the battery. I haven’t tried any previous builds and i came from JDX 13.3 (4.2.2 AOSP rom). I did a clean install and even tried again using your script but no avail. Other than that issue this is probably the most stable/responsive rom and I have ever had the pleasure of running on my GNEX and wanted to say keep up the awesome work.

    Latest version has broken music playing for me.. no matter what app i use the music player crashes and the whole phone locks up only a battery pull bring phone back.. on multiple clean installs each time would still do it

    I should have a fixed build up tonight
    In the menatime this will fix
    su -c “sysrw && wget http://www.emccann.net/audio_effects.conf -O – > /system/vendor/etc/audio_effects.conf && reboot”
