    Broke the install so had to flash! Goo manager is good stuff! Also found the pen that comes with it, much easier to type with it.... still dam slow but better.
    Also have an actual browser now, even though it's chrome....

    i just use FF for short time, now i move to baidu browser. FF is too big just for browser and chrome too.
    i wonder why the other dont create simple browser like opera mini that light fast and slim. today i feel like many browser with alot of features but not comfortable to use

    That's another thing I like about this galaxy.. 2gbs system ram, 32gbs data storage, and I added an 8gb sd card... it has tons of ram for an android device, ff really is nothing for it....

    Oh, and I should mention, if you have the older gt-n8010 model, you will have to install this recovery method: http://teamw.in/project/twrp2
    Then install goo manager, and use reboot to recovery console, and then wipe, and then install. Works perfect!

    @johnspack looks like you're having fun, i assume it was successful :)
    both recoveries work, i just switched from CWM to TWRP on my S3 yesterday for its touch capability, so what ROM did you install?

    The first one you listed, it looked safest. Nice it rooted on install. I'll try others as I get braver sent from my galaxy....

    nope :D


    i've updated my android collection, as of today i have:

    Galaxy S4 I9505: dual booting GE kitkat 4.4/TW kitkat 4.4
    S3 I9300 + I9305 on modded touchwiz 4.3 (different rom for each, looks and feels the same tho)
    Tab 3 8.0 T310: dual booting 4.2.2 OC'd 1.5Ghz -> 1.9GHz and CM11 (which i dont really like on this tab, loses too many features)

    Thanks :D

    Just got this last week and in our region, only the dual sim version exist (or was supposed to be released here)
    , installed several apps and ive filled most of the space now heh, tho most of these are downloaded because of curiosity (benchmarks and large 3d games and emulators >_>)
    Also included several videos and tested if a 720 hi10p anime would play lel (turns out that it stutters quite a bit)

    My old phones were Sony Ericsson K320i and Sony Ericsson Satio, my Satio now is my backup... or rather a phone i give whenever i get into a holdup lel (the place i live isnt exactly a peaceful place)

    Regarding android itself, i hear these task killers and i hear they are not really something you use for your phone because the way the OS works?

    well since Android is Linux the memory management is kinda efficient i only use the recent app menu (long press home button) and swipe to the left to free a bit of memory with app i don't need to run in background...

    what version of Android come with the Moto G (since motorola is google i hope it is at last jelly bean or better KitKat ) depending on the version the management is even more efficient KitKat (non official) do wonder with my SIII

    I see, so i guess i wont be needing much of the task killers scattered all over google play? (i have this clean master thing app but only mostly sits here and i use it to see some trash lyin around).

    All Moto G comes with 4.3 JB, some comes with kitkat 4.4.2 already (specially the google play edition), Mine comes with 4.3 JB, but update to Kitkat is still pending (maybe because the dual sim version for our region). Not sure if i wnt to go kitkat now tho, as it will lose the already existing OTG functionality of the device :\

    The official flip shells look neat, tho im not sure if someone would sell it here, considering most folks here thought motorola is already dead :O

    only ever use task killers built into the phone - they wont kill anything important off.

    those task killers will kill your notifications, your alarm clock, your calendar etc... they're not worth it.

    I guess il just swipe en away then :O (on Moto G and prolly the nexus ones and Moto X, the multitask button displays the previously opened apps and lets you swipe em away)

    OT:
    @Mussels: is it just me or it was spelled Moderprator? :O

    don't worry that's just normal :D

    also yep recent app plus swipe away free memory even on official (the only plus is that i have a memory usage bar in my multitask menu dunno if it exist in official ... i rarely stay with official bloat edition roms ... o_O)
