    VinceCgto, Apr 16, 2015 :
    I've been following the Bugs thread (https://forums.oneplus.net/threads/cm12s-bugs-thread.296401/page-109) here. But I've seen lots of people not finding things since the update, that's what this thread is for.

    • Adaptive brightness is the new Automatic brightness
    • Adaptive backlight
    • Sunlight enhancement
    • Lock screen options 'None' and 'Swipe' are greyed out.
    • Can't find the Boxer app
    • Ambient display isn't working properly
    • Messaging crashes after installing the OTA
    • Where is the Performance setting (Performance, Balanced, Power Saver)
    • Why doesn't my notification light work?
    • Contacts are sorted by Last name (though the setting says otherwise)
    • Setting the lockscreen wallpaper
    • The launcher lags (drawer)
    • Where do I set the Google Now homescreen?
    • Screenshot
    • Screen capturing
    • Screen pinning
    • What do the 'star' and the 'disabled/mute' symbol? (Priority/Interruption)
    • Wakelocks?
    Tips
    • Some settings like 'Scanning always available' seem to be turned on again.
    • If some of these options aren't available at first, go to Settings > About phone > Set 'Advanced mode' to ON
    • If you want the best (real) lighting possible, turn OFF Adaptive brightness & Adaptive backlight and control the brightness manually.

    If you have any other tips/tricks, let me know and I'll add them here.

    The thing is, not every wakelock is the same, there's not one fix for all.

    But I'll update my post with some things you can do/options you can uncheck.

    Do you have any suggestion on how to re-install this app? I accidentally uninstalled it (meant to disable but actually removed it).
    Ofcourse I can download the normal Boxer app, but that does not seem to offer the premium services the native Cyanogenmod app does.

    Is re-flashing CM12 the only option, or does anyone have a less drastic suggestion?

    I can try upload the APK file here later today. Or someone with a bit more time can do that right now.

    Is There any way to switch quickly between vibration/audio profiles like in cm11s?
    The button in the drawer was great, and unused it all the time.
    Incidentally, there is non profile where there is completely no sound nor vibration, is there?

    I've tried it myself and couldn't activate it either. Maybe you have to connect a USB cable first and then try to change it? I haven't had the time to test it out.

    If that doesn't work, I'll report it as a bug.

    I believe they are enabled by default, at least for me. Calls as a heads-up notification aren't possible, I think.

    No, doesn't look like it. You might wanna try a toggle application from the Play Store, like Power Toggles.

    And no, as of now, the profiles don't allow you to completely silence the phone. The profiles don't quite work with the new sound modes yet.

    I've reported it though.

    I had the same problem after the update.
    But you can switch the connection mode when you connect the phone to your computer.
    A notification comes telling you that USB has been connected.
    You can tap that and it takes you to the screen where you can select MTP, PTP or charging only.

    I haven't experienced messaging crashes after the OTA.
    By the way, some of these bugs can be minimized by a cache wipe.
    Although I wouldn't recommend it, but I have experienced a good performance after a cache wipe.
    After the OTA install, switch off your phone, hold the power and volume down key to boot into recovery, tap Wipe Cache partition, then Reboot the phone(Tap "Reboot System Now").
    Again, I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE CAUSED TO YOUR PHONE.
    DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK.

    Well, so I guess, not being able to select it here 'Settings > Storage > USB computer connection' is a bug.

    A cache wipe doesn't fix the 'Messaging' crash.

    Did you only recently get the OTA? The new OTA they're rolling out fixes this.
    New OTA name: YNG1TAS17L.
