Known issues
This build is as good as NexusHD2-Froyo now, but it still has some issues as follows.
  • Disable Audible touch tones in Sound settings to avoid the Robot voice and/or frozen Phone app when dialing.
  • Robot Voice: first call at first boot may have Robot voice, please turn on speaker and then end/hang up this call.
  • Camcorder: you can record on low setting. High setting results in stuttery/choppy video. (reason)
  • Bluetooth: it still has 60mA battery drain issue on standby. (caused by kernel)
  • Feb. 15: Default kernel, tytung_r3_oldcam, has the call quality issue (static sound). If you cannot live with it, please update to tytung_r4_oldcam. (Feb. 23: install the incremental updates)
  • Feb. 18: Blinking keypad has been fixed. make a fake call (e.g. Dial "0") and then end this call to fix it. (Feb. 23: install the incremental updates)
