    Ok. So. Google Maps. WHY THE HELL CAN YOU ONLY ENTER TWO POINTS IN A ROUTE?

    RETARDED


    Any tips on a program that allows me to do that? Preferebly only for cars, I don't want to plan entire trips with busses, trains, flights, hookers and coke. Just an app with a map that allows me to enter multiple points in a route. No GPS or anything needed either. I just want to know how far a certain road would be.

    Android Security Vulnerability

    What happened
    We recently learned that a component of Android responsible for generating secure random numbers contains critical weaknesses, that render all Android wallets generated to date vulnerable to theft. Because the problem lies with Android itself, this problem will affect you if you have a wallet generated by any Android app. An incomplete list would be Bitcoin Wallet, blockchain.info wallet, BitcoinSpinner and Mycelium Wallet. Apps where you don't control the private keys at all are not affected. For example, exchange frontends like the Coinbase or Mt Gox apps are not impacted by this issue because the private keys are not generated on your Android phone

    What has been done
    Updates have been prepared for the following wallet apps:

    • Bitcoin Wallet: Update 3.15 can be installed from Google Play or Google Code. Key rotation will occur automatically soon after you upgrade. The old addresses will be marked as insecure in your address book. You will need to make a fresh backup.
    • BitcoinSpinner: Update 0.8.3b can be installed from Google Play or Google Code. On startup it will advise you on how to proceed.
    • Mycelium Bitcoin Wallet: Update 0.7.0 can be installed from Google Play or mycelium.com. A wizard will guide you through the process of moving your bitcoins to newly generated addresses, and put the old keys into archive mode.
    • blockchain.info: Update 3.54 can be installed from Google Play. Version 3.54 and above includes an automatic re-keying wizard. Simply update to the latest version and follow the onscreen instructions. Please make a fresh wallet backup after the process completes.


    What you should do
    In order to re-secure existing wallets, key rotation is necessary. This involves generating a new address with a repaired random number generator and then sending all the money in your wallet back to yourself. If you use an Android wallet then we strongly recommend you to upgrade to the latest version available in the Play Store as soon as one becomes available. Once your wallet is rotated, you will need to contact anyone who has stored addresses generated by your phone and give them a new one.

    If you can't update your Android app, alternatively, you can send your bitcoins to a Bitcoin wallet on your computer until your Android app can be updated. You should make sure not to send back your bitcoins to your old insecure addresses.

    Anyone having problems with Google Hangouts interrupting their music/audio everytime when you receive a message? At first i thought that the ringtone i was using for it required 100% dedication from the speaker to play hence the pause in my music or video but i played around with it and it doesnt matter what i use it keeps interrupting my sound and i find this very fucking annoying as when im commuting back home from work and listening to my tunes on a bus, having a full conversation on hangouts makes listening to music while doing it pointless.

    I have since turned off notifications for it. but i was wondering if anyone here has come across a fix for it or knows how to fix it?? Ive tried googling up the issue but im having a hard time finding anything

    I am in with my Samsung Galaxy Y GT-S5360. :)
    App recommendations from me are Opera Mini and Opera Mobile. Opera Mini is light weight and faster in slow connections. Opera Mobile is a full fledged browser and includes desktop site viewing as well. :)

    So who the fuck at samsung thought it was a good idea to fill one of their flagship phones with bloatware? On stock 4.1.2 I can't even get past the first test of 3dmark without the app crashing. With all the samsung junk blocked off with app quarantine I can get a pretty decent score. On par with the max 6.3

    if I could find a ROM that supports my provider I would go with it. Until then I'll just have to deal with app quarantine. Benchmarking against reayth and I got 5249 on 3dmark!

    let say i add a new toy for android, mostly tinker and testing soon as i get it at home.
    [​IMG]


    since it can run 4.2.2 (not so much stable) 4.2.1 (a bit better) and 4.0 its a Android device :p

    still the build prop for the Ti Sitara SOC will not let it access playstore and some other apk ... hum i wonder: its like a Mediatek MT6577 but single core and same gpu basically ... maybe i will be able to figure out a way to tweak that.

    i have a MTK 6577 phone (UMI X1) wich all runs flawlessly ... thinking of switching my UMI and my Nexus 7 8gb for a single device ... Asus Fonepad 16gb or another 7" phone/pad combo, its a weird idea (looking ridiculous while making a call without handsfree, anyone?) but still pretty seducing

    the perfect hit is : i pay less than 40$ for that BBB and it might be funnier to use and work on than a HDMI stick at 70$ and more :D

    no such thing as a provider supported rom.


    you flash the rom, enter in the APN details and such manually, and away you go.

    i'll see what i can find. IMO only go for CM or AOSP.


    i see. you got a modified variant of the phone, and its screwed you over.

    heres a link to a guide to quickly modify more custom roms to be supported.

    Meh, I'm not so sure I wanna start doing this stuff if it's that much work. I'll provably end up bricking my phone anyway.

    I thought this when I first started looking around at rooting and loading custom roms, it does look quite daunting, but honestly once you have done the root loading custom roms is a breeze and quite addictive trying out the different ones, granted I haven't rooted my HTC One yet as it's relatively new and still supported a lot though if you have an older handset I would say go for it, you won't be disappointed when you find a custom rom you like and that brings a new lease of life to your phone

    It gets close to double that, I got 10736 on my HTC One

    Yea I've had it for a couple of weeks now, my only single gripe is that sometimes when making a call the sensor that should turn off the display when it's placed up to your ear doesn't work properly and whilst on a call it will go into the quick settings and put the phone into airplane mode :banghead: am hoping an update will fix it soon as I have read others with the same issue, or maybe I need to stop moving it whilst it's up to my ear :rolleyes:, aside from that I absolutely love this phone, it's teh sex :rockout: :laugh:

    I have found many roms I like, but most only work for international or american devices. I still haven't found a good tutorial on how to install a rom anyway.
