    hah, only just figured out how to use half the features in ES file explorer.

    never noticed the scan button to find devices on the network, makes me feel retarded - also the 'share' option on files to other ES file explorers is awesome, works great for using the S3 attached to HDMI to stream from another device without needing to touch the S3.

    s4 is now on the echoE V5+ rom, based on samsungs new 4.3 release.


    works awesome, many new added features and a lot faster speed. battery life better too, with one catch - some of my notification ringtones are getting cut off short.

    yessss, finally modded my S4 to how i want it.


    Running the EchoE 4.3 rom + 4.4 rom: dual booting with this and this
    with Ktoons kernel
    Chainfire root
    Long press audio mod (holding volume when screen off, changes tracks. works great with basic headphones)
    Fast dormancy toggle really helped with idle battery since my carrier doesnt support it


    with a 60mv undervolt on CPU and 50 on GPU, i average -0.4% battery drain at idle in my pocket.

    this was after some light use (Screenshots) so it jumped to nearly -0.5%

    Ripped Nexus 5 Google Home launcher and other apps now available for download

    [​IMG]
    While many of us are waiting for our Nexus 5 to ship, it appears as though a bunch of the phone's applications have surfaced. Android community members have ripped some content from the official Google factory image and made it available.

    The content was then sifted through by Droid-Life which then collated the main apps including calendar, email, and camera hangouts, as well as some more notable additions, into convenient downloads.

    Most of the apps are minor updates, as Droid-Life points out, but there are also some more important ones like the improved Google Search, the new Google Home launcher, Google Keyboard and Clock that are available as well.

    While it certainly isn't the full Kit Kat experience, those who just can't wait to get a taste can do so at their own risk. The apps were obviously built specifically for the Nexus 5 so there is no telling how they might function with a device running CyanogenMod or Sense.

    Need to drop money for a tablet mainly for media use, at the same time i want to be able to use it with BF4 as well as using it as a manga reader and device i can stream media from my NAS to without the need to use my laptop.

    Theres an offer going for a Asus MeMo 7 HD but I want something with bigger screen and stereo speakers.

    lurking around ebay and one of the tablets that comes close is a NeoCore Elite HD 9.7"

    It has a Rockchip RK3188, Cortex A9 quad core, 1.8GHz; GPU: Mali 400. 2GB DDR3 and is most likely a rebadge of a Pipo M6 Pro except for the lack of GPS

    Only thing stopping me is the price. It costs $321.66. the shipping is a little on the expensive side for shipping within the UK

    simple device: takes HDMI in, outputs SPDIF optical.

    why post in this thread? because with a $10 MHL HDMI adaptor on my S3/S4, i can now get HDMI video with 5.1 optical audio :)

    who needs a HTPC? not i.

    PowerAmp FTW. Love it... Can't really find faults with it. Love how many options it has.

    I love the look of that Archos game pad, but it got a so so review, the new game pad 2 is coming soon though with better spec.
