    Call me out if this has been asked before, but has anyone been able to nail down just what is causing the 10.3 alarm to break? It's thinking I'm 320000000 hours ahead of whatever time I set which right off the bat is strange to me...
    Using 10.3.0.700 autoloader + the missing/fixed apps for 700 posted on the forums, I've tried:

    • 10.3.0.700 clock, no fix
    • 10.3.0.296 clock, no fix
    • 10.2.1.xxxx clock's (multiple), no fix

    Obviously the issue isn't stemming from the clock file itself, so it'd be from somewhere else in the OS, could it be from the nativity issues due to the fact it's meant as a Dev OS and not for actual Radio use?
    Wouldn't developers possibly need access to this function at all?

    The alarm itself is the only thing holding me back from reupgrading to 10.3 and I'd love to get that bad boy up and running on my phone! The android experience itself was just astounding how well they ran!

    Nonetheless, anyone able to stem down what the issue comes from and/or a possible fix to it? Possibly loading other 10.2.1 files into the 10.3 build maybe?

    For me it worked cause I had a certain alarm already set in my previous backup and it was restored onto 10.3.0.700. I can't set a new alarm but the one I need for 7am is saved and works everyday.

    I had the same thing actually after restoring my backup.
    That's great if you work in a daily routine but unfortunately I work part-time so some day's I need to be up at 5:30, other's 9:00, or some just no time specifically, but I'm unable to alter that at all X_X
    Annndddd I kind of set like 7 alarms 2 minutes apart and eventually I'm hitting snooze so often it drives me out of bed.. I'm awful like that.. lol

    How did you manage to have an alarm set in your backup? Could you share that backup or something.
    I only need one alarm and that's all. that's the only thing holding me back to get 10.3 right now. Already tried 296/442 and 700/701 but still no work... excellent performance thou on both but I liked more 296

    The only thing you need to do is while on any normal working OS (ie 10.2.1.3253), just go to Link and select custom backup options, select the settings option, do the backup, autoload your phone and stuff, connect to link and restore that settings file, and you should be set! You may have to go toggle it on, but you won't be able to edit it.
    If you already set the alarm in a precious backup, you may be able to partially restore just the settings file and skip that whole kerfuffle!
    Hope this helps

    And hope someone is able to narrow down the cause of the 10.3 alarm issues!

    Unfortunately I've never been able to find something reliable and which is also a headless app...
    If it were reliable, as in I could count on it to work day after day without a hitch, was headless, and was free I'd be all for it, but nothing like that exists besides the integrated clock from anything >10.3

    There is code missing in the code of dev OS
    You won't be able to patch it via sideloading.

    Try Alarm Clock Extreme, it's an android app and you can get it from Snap. It's fully headless and I've used it for months without a hitch

    He's referring to the dev OS without functioning alarms

    Yeah that's exactly it. I'd like to still get the massively improved android runtime (from .296 to .700 was huge from my experience in app stability and efficiency)
    Try Alarm Clock Extreme, it's an android app and you can get it from Snap. It's fully headless and I've used it for months without a hitch
    Has anyone been able to get that android app to be as smooth? Or what OS were you running this on with it running fully headless and well?

    I've tried that also, but won't work either. My solution was autoload 10.3.0.296, set the alarm and make the backup of this OS. Then autoload 10.3.0.700, install missing bars from 296, restore and then it worked. Now I have the alarm set. Can't change it but it works. The only thing now is the no email notification sound.

    Thanks anyway
