    That is very strange. I've never heard of that. Once the theme is removed everything goes back to normal and your saying a reboot doesn't fix it? Is there a specific app that does it? I rarely even have an app that unthemes from a crash since the author of Swift Black keeps up with changes pretty promptly.

    You might wanna ask in the substratum telegram group

    Oh man.. i wanted your views on PAEX 4.4 and even benchmarks with different kernels :(

    I read the article..so you're sticking with vertex for dcpi3 support and because it's open source? Any other reason that you would prefer it over paex?

    Yes, a reboot doesn't fix it, not for WhatsApp and Gmail I had.

    I see, never use telegram, probably will use it.

    I thought it would be infair to benchmark PAEX because people will tend to think the performance is permanent. There is a good chance that the next release will fix the performance issues people saw with 4.4.

    Vertex seems to perform the best, and OwnROM seems to have a slightly snappier kernel. But, I seem to have pissed off the author of Vertex over something. Not sure exactly where I'm going next, but I may just fork Vertex's ROM and OwnROM's kernel. Adding DCI-P3 support to the kernel should be easy and there are some things I want to implement ... might as well stop waiting on everyone else

    What makes you think you have low signal? What are you measuring by?

    The majority of the time, the "Data icon" on the status bar has 1 to no bars the majority of the time since I flashed this ROM, so I'm just curious if it's cosmetic or if it actually conflicts with my signal.

    It shouldn't because ROMs don't come with firmware. Try flashing a different firmware.

    On the other hand, OEMs tend to pad the status bar data indicator to lead you into thinking you have a stronger signal than you do. I recommend you look at the signal strength indicators in your settings menu to see if it really is a signal issue or a misleading indicator.

    Yeah i saw that on xda.. They are really pissed with you lol..but ik your intentions were good..they're just taking it in the wrong way.

    So you'll be creating your own kernel? Sounds nice. Would love to try it and you'll be in charge so you don't have to request others. I wish you the best and would be looking forward to it if you choose to do so. And also please keep an eye on PAEX and test it once the latest build is out.

    Go to Settings > About Phone > Status > SIM status > Signal Strength.

    You will see two numbers: XX dbm and XX asu measurements.

    The closer the dbm measurement is to zero, the better the signal. Same applies for the higher the asu measurement is.

    Right now I have -87dbm53asu and my status bar data indicator shows full signal strength.

    You have to compare with other ROMs and OOS, and if those numbers are stable then it's that OOS is manipulating the indicator. Samsung and LG do this on their phones too.

    Seems about right for the signal you're getting. Might want to check your APN settings then before flashing any firmware.

    Already took a look at the APN settings, however, I never had this amount of signal on the stock ROM

    Okay so I'm at work with no bars, but this is what shows up in the SIM settings.

    Yeah. You see how the dbm is up to -110? That's not ROM related. But to be sure, ask the dev and send him a log so he can look into it for you.

    OOS lies about the signal. Its a setting burried in a config file. So, as long as the call quality is the same, don't worry about it. You are seeing real signal now, not the lie :)

    Only judge signal strength by the dB level in About Phone (or an app that displays same, like my widget). Signal bars can lie.

    APN doesn't affect signal strength. That's just how to route your data and MMS.

    Thats low, but typical for my house. Every 3dB is double/half. So, around -115 you'll have trouble with garbled voices sometimes. At -120 you might not be able to keep a call connected for long and constant distortions. At -125 it just says No Signal
