Waze 3.6: black screen after reporting

Postby bugjargal » Sun Mar 03, 2013 1:05 pm

Hi all,

Since yesterday, I'm facing an issue that makes waze almost unusable.

First of, here's the context:
-Waze 3.6
-ROM Omega v44.1 (Android 4.2.1)
-Samsung Galaxy S3 (i9300)

My issue:
Waze seems to work ok until I click the 'Report' button located bottom right. Whether I go on and report something or simply go back without reporting anything, I end up with a black screen with only the two buttons available. No more map display.

If I tap one of the two buttons, I can see the map (and all wazers or events) displayed in the background of the menu that pops up. But as soon as I get out of the menu, I'm back on that black screen.

Note that only the 'Report' button triggers this problem, if I tap the main button bottom left, I can go back to the map with no pb.

Workaround: Not really. Only exiting the app restores the map.

I also noticed that if I stay on that black screen, my device will shutdown its screen (Waze option to prevent this does not work). As long as I'm seeing the map, it behaves as expected on that topic.

What I tried to fix this (with no luck):
-Removed Waze after wipping data/cache
-Removed remaining files manuallly
-Went to recovery and wiped cache/dalvik +fix permissions
-Deactivated autozoom in waze settings (who knows... :roll: )

Did anybody see this before?

Thanks ;)
Oh. And by the way: great software guys! Thanks for all the effort and thanks to all wazers...

I'm using Waze on Stock S3 - did not see this problem. Also Cyanogen mod seems to work fine. Due to massively tweaked system in Omega, I think this problem is limited to Omega ROM.

This is also what I fear/suspect.
I reverted back to two waze beta releases just to be sure, but no luck.

I'll wait for the next omega release and see...

Thanks anyway ;-)

This is what I reported in their Android 3.6 feedback. I'm experiencing the exact same thing. Hoping they can fix it.

Ok. I feel less alone ;)

I reverted back to Omega v43 (Android 4.1.2) and everything is working as it should.

This is how I understand it.

As aigarslv mentioned, Omega roms are heavily tweaked. And v44.1 is based on a leaked 4.2.1.
So I'll give it a new try when it will be available based on an official from Samsung.

I'm om stock LSZ on the galaxy note N-7000 and I have the exact same problem.
I love waze, but this renders the entire app unusable.
