    You guys got any leet idea's about how to use NFC stickers?
    I cant figure out any fun usage for it besides profile changes, which is kinda lame but I can't shake of the feeling there is something cool to do with it and I just can't figure it out...

    can you use it for stuff like auto enabling BT and syncing to the stereo in your car?

    tigger, since you have an SII can you give thoughts on that ROM? i just fixed up a bricked one today for a friend at work, and he wants a custom ROM so he can get CMW and root easier. he used to use MIUI on his S1, if that helps.

    Its pretty good mate, had it on for a few days now and its pretty stable. I think all you need to do is flash the rom and it roots it and puts the kernel on it too, its also pre rooted with SU on it.

    lt_ler pm'd me this on XDA-The ROM I am on now is XWLSS NeatROM Lite v4.7 ... and it already has PhilZ-touch kernel v5.00.4.
    So no need to download and flash the kernel separately.
    Just flash the ROM zip file in CWM recovery and you'll be fine.

    The recovery is well nice with touch control too. Try it mate.

    If you need root seperatly try this-http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2130276

    Some apps i recommend,
    Chrome to phone, if you have chrome on phone and pc, you can send bookmarks from phone to pc and vice versa. you need at least ICS on to run chrome on ya phone though.
    System app uninstaller, nice, requires root though.
    FVD download vids from any webpage apart fron youtube to your phone.
    Root explorer, useful file explorer which gives access to the system files.

    Looking for a custom rom recommendation for a Samsung GS2 tried ParanoidAndroid though it's a little naked for my liking, would like something with play store preinstalled as none of the apk's I downloaded worked and the gapps package cocked up the rom (constant the wizard has encountered an error messages)

    ur probably using the wrong version of GAPPS

    I just put carbon on my s3 with the 4.2.2 gapps and I love it so far.

    Try P.A.C. man. Combines best features of PA, AOKP, Cyanogen.

    Which recovery do you use? Might be time to do a FULL wipe, I mean a deep level format. System, data, sdcard (especially), everything. Could be some ghost junk floating around messing with the gapps.

    I have the T-Mobile US s2, and did this. Boots much faster, no RR, sods. Was having problems with both.

    Also, where do you go for your roms?

    Am using CWM for recovery and have backed up my Samsung JB rom to fall back on.

    Currently running Thunderbolt rom with cyanogenomod kernel and it seems pretty good, only problem is it seems the kernel isn't overclockable. I'm new to rooting, custom roms etc, infact only rooted it today and installed my first custom mod so I am still getting used to doing this.

    Currently downloading alliance rom for the galaxy s2 which is JB and has an kernel that allows you to OC.

    Most of those are on the droidrzr.com website but there are a few that are not and I will try some of those. THanks Shib! Wished they could break the code to unlock the razrs bootloader like the razr I/HD

    i gave in to my urges and bought a galaxy tab 2 today.


    working on updating + rooting now, anyone got suggestions for what to install/tweak?

    aiming at rooting, OCing, and getting anime playback smooth (pretty sure a 1.4GHz OC (supposedly easy) with hardware+ mode in MXplayer will handle that.


    edit: modded it to the CM10.1 nightlies. this thing has no HDMI output which really pisses me off, but its at least 4x faster CPU than my current tablet, so i'll stick with it.

    Yeah i was looking through XDA and saw how simple it is. I just need the time to do it. Cant do it on Weeknights because im tired as hell from work and afraid that i might mess something up in the process.

    oh and for anybody thats on T-mobile. I had a personal experience with the latest. 4.1.2. being complete trash and laggy as hell on my phone. Has anyone confirmed it or everybody is running custom ROMs here. lol;)
