  12. Hi guys,
    I installed it and looks great, works great. But I have 2 question. In the screen lock I can choose from 4 things – dialer, lock, mute and the 4th is like a messaging icon. But if I pull that, it writes me EINHERJAR and then comes a black screen and a quick restart (music, media scanning etc).
    How can I solve this problem???????????
    The other, that in the alarm I can’t get to choose music from “go to my files” because it writes me – application package com.sec.android.app.myfiles not exist.
    Any solution?

  14. Hi Neal,

    I’ve installed your S2-ROM on my galaxy S, with XXJVR gingerbread version.
    I can tell you it’s very nice. The default app which come with it also is the one I look for.
    Thank you for that !

    But I have a simple question, which I don’t quite understand.
    I’ve installed it yesterday on my handset, for the last 24 hours, it’s okey. Until this afternoon, when I install some other applications from the market which I need it for my daily routine, the phone start to restart so many times.
    These applications, initially was installed also on my Galaxy S before I update to your S2-ROM.

    Is there any solutions to that ? And may I know what cause it ?

    Thanks .
