  1. No Birthday/anniversary In Contacts

    Is this problem solved in 10.2.1? I'm running CM 10.2.0 on Galaxy S and can see existing birthdays in the calendar (via use of "birthday adaptor"), but can't see nor edit (add/delete/change) birthdays in the contacts. If not, is there any workaround for this problem? Syncing my contact data with servers outside my own control is, of course, not an option. Nor is use of non-free software.
  2. Hi, I wanted to listen to some music using an external speaker connected via the 3.5mm jack. But I hear the music from the builtin speaker only. Is there anything I have to adjust in the settings? I searched through the sound settings, but don't understand what to change. Interestingly in the music application itself, there are some setting related to the headset (sound effects). But no way to actually switch on the headset output. Does anybody know what I'm doing wrong? Thanks in advance! PS: At a sidenote, the FM radio application shows the same behaviour, i.e. no output on the external speaker, but I don't care about that.
  3. <p> Good idea!(Just to sure, you mean the bug tracker here:http://code.google.com/p/cyanogenmod/issues/listright?)Anyway, probably I will learn to use AnCal, which is free software stand-alone calendar.
  4. Many thanks for your help! I'm really new into Android, Cyanogenmod etc., so I don't yet understand: Why do I need a Google or Exchange account to use my calendar "stand-alone"? I don't have any Google nor Exchange accounts. Therefore all "lists of accounts" are empty and will remain so. I just want to put a meeting into the calendar, so that I can see it the next day. The Cyanogenmod calendar seems to refuse any work without giving an Exchange account. About the "gapps" package: Searching the Cyanogenmod wiki tells me, that this contains the proprietary Google applications. This is something I really want to avoid. I installed Cyanogenmod to get rid of proprietary application, after all :~)
  5. <p>As long as the builtin calendar does not work, I will try the free software AnCal: http://code.google.c...ncal/downloads/ Let's see...
  6. Addition: If I press the [Add account] button in Settings -> Accounts and Sync, I get the same question for an Exchange account like in the calendar app. I do not have an Exchange account nor do I want to have one.
  7. In Settings -> Accounts and Sync I can see the following: Accounts & sync settings General sync settings Background data [checkbox not checked] Applications can sync, send and receive data at any time Auto-sync [checkbox disabled] Applications sync data automatically Manage Accounts Add account I don't have configured any accounts, so why does the calendar application ask for an exchange account?
  8. I just switched from the Samsung provided Android to CM7 (stable), so maybe I did not yet discover everything. The Samsung firmware has a PIM-style calendar application, which I can use stand-alone, i.e. without Google services, MSexChange or whatever. The calendar in CM7 seems to be something completely different. When starting, it asks me for some exchange login data, but I don't have exchange (nor Google, nor nothing). Is the stand-alone calendar a Samsung specific application? Is it in the non-free parts of Android? Is there a free (= open source) calendar or PIM application for Android? Many thanks in advance!
  9. Samsung Galaxy xCover

    I'm happy with my Galaxy S I9000, but this one is interesting: http://www.samsung.c...type=prd_detail Is anyone working on/thinking about an CM port?
  10. <p> First: I'm a newbie myself, so be careful with my advices. You need to know which Galaxy S you have. E.g. I have a "XXJVQ" (whatever that means), so I downloaed the firmware I9000XXJVQ.rar, which I found in an Android forum by searching the web. I unpacked the rar file, which contained tar files, so I unpacked them as well, and, voilá, I had all files for the command above. Second: You can switch off your phone by removing the battery. Insert it again, press "volume down", "home", and "power". There should be a download page on your phone. Now you can install the original firmware and your phone should be fine, however without CM7. Third: Install CM7 as you did before, i.e. reboot your phone, press "volume up", "home", and "power", and do all the wiping and zip install like you did before. This second time it just worked for me. No idea, why it didn't work the first time, but in one forum I read, that some people even needed a third install. HTH - hope that helps!
  11. OK, I just had to flash the original firmware and try again. The second time it worked. The original firmware could be flashed that way: heimdall flash --repartition --pit s1_odin_20100512.pit --factoryfs factoryfs.rfs --cache cache.rfs --dbdata dbdata.rfs --param param.lfs --modem modem.bin --kernel zImage --secondary-boot Sbl.bin Problem solved, one happy CM7 more!
  12. Hi, I just installed my first Cyanogenmod using CWM (with all the wiping etc.), but I get bootloop, i.e. I could see a Cyanogenmod logo, but the phone keeps booting. I tried to install the CWM kernel using heimdall, but the phone keeps booting, now without Cyanogenmod logo. What now? Many thanks in advance for any help!
