Startup Crashes
If NTW crashes after you update your firmware to ICS, this is due to directory restructuring by ICS, thus clashing with NTW's own log data. Simply delete the /.NeedToWrite folder to fix this.

Text to speech for SVOX classic will only work if you enable both the SVOX Classic engine under your phone's TTS settings, as well as enable Language Override inside SVOX Classic TTS settings.

I just encountered this sudden bug on my SGS3. Cut and Copy buttons will crash my phone everytime in any version of NTW Lite or Pro.

So after some digging, I found that there is a bug in how certain phone models especially Samsung's implements the clipboard.

The temporary solution is either a factory reset, or to do this:
1. boot into recovery > advanced > wipe cache
2. reboot phone > ES Explorer (enable root mode)> delete /data/clipbord/*
3. reboot recovery again > advanced > fix permissions
4. reboot phone > it's fine again, but until Samsung fixes their firmware, the same problem will eventually recur for apps that implement their own cut/copy/paste buttons.

Not Working for Me... I want to be able to download files from my Website, edit them on my phone and upload them. However, when I use NTW Lite, modify the file in HTML mode and upload it, the text of the file disappears. Have I mis-set something? This text editor looks like an excellent solution (trying to edit using Emacs from the Android didn't work at all), so I hope it can work! I would be happy to upgrade, but I want to see that it works before I do.
