    I've been very happy with the DINC I picked up, too. It's a great phone.

    I got a question. I have a rooted HTC Desire Z with Cyaogen mod OS and want to disable the advertisement in apps.
    How is this done?

    I agree, there is a build of CWM Touch for the Rezound. I can't stand it. Switched back to AmonRA within 5 minutes.

    I'm actually running AdFree, and seem to have no issues...



    I'm really interested in the HTC One series, but I'm not seeing it headed to Verizon, for some stupid-a$$ reason. Anyone know if they are eventually headed that way? Or, if not, has anyone seen anything (besides the asinine "Rezound") that's got anywhere near that kind of power?

    Got a Samsung Galaxy S Plus two weeks ago. Very impressed with it but want to play without the risk of bricking it (contract phone) How safe is all of this rooting malarkey and any sites/info I can read up on the process?

    I have an app recommendation - Android Lost

    After finding out that Where´s My Droid now cost money with full functions I tried Android Lost.
    Now I can remotely control my phone in case of theft or loss.

    For example: If I lose my phone and it had GPS deactivated I go to AndroidLost.com and activate GPS and request its position or send an message that can be seen even with locked screen: If you find this phone call xxx.

    Hm. At this point, from a Verizon standpoint, I say this.

    :nutkick:


    Fricking no HTC One ANYTHING on Verizon... grumble grumble...:mad::mad::mad::banghead::banghead:

    *sigh* on a more civil note, I say, without the benefit of knowing the Desire very well, I would still move to the One. Just me.
    *cheers*

    I would do the jump.

    @ Ahhzz

    It's basically the Rezound with Sense 4.0 out of the box.

    I found this so awesome!

    You can control your phone (Like VNC) on your PC! I get frustrated sometimes when I am working on something at work and I am texting a alot or on AIM. WELL! I found this today were you can remote control your phone using android SDK tools and a java script!! You must have root to use keyboard/mouse and you must make sure you have debug on and stay awake while charging.

    lol you just now discovered adb? well I guess you had to find the SDK sometime.

    To the guy who wants to upgrade to the One X: I wouldn't. It's not really a worthy upgrade right now. The newer Exynos/Mali based CPU/GPU's are going to make the stuff coming out right now look weak by comparison. Don't jump to quad core tegra 3 just because it has 4 cores. The new dual core exynos coming soon is more powerful than any of the new quads coming out. It just has a better arch.

    The One X is not even really an upgrade coming from a Galaxy S2 or Nexus, so I would wait for the real next gen in Q3-Q4. The One X is a nice phone though, so if you need to upgrade really soon go for it, but you might be disappointed when the new samsungs come out and make it look obsolete...

    Air droid does NOT control the phone, only give you access to the SD and text messages. This allows you to actually VNC into the phone without network connection.

    *EDIT*

    Trolling Jr today I was bored
