    Scratch that I've read wrong :laugh:

    Anyway if it's still having problems even with a different card, maybe the slot's problematic?

    It's the phone rom. Mount points are causing the "issue".

    Quit trying to install 20 different games and you will be ok. ;)

    I want to install 20 games! :D I bought all the big titles for android such as mass effect, dead space, gta, nova 3 and so on. Once my phone memory is full, I was thinking the 32GB sd card would come in handy. Seems like I can't use it for games then D:

    My mom randomly showed up and gave me a very nice Plantronics Voyager Pro+ headset! It's very nice so far with excellent range, and I can stream my music most of the area of my 1800sq ft. house. after calls it announces the battery life rem. and the volume and stuff. It's awesome how my mom just randomly gives me a 90 dollar headset and it's even more funny it's more expensive then my router!!!!! LMNASO

    and damn the Plantronics Vocalyst software is buggy and it needs google talk authentication to work and I don't have it and I can't change the authenticator from my youtube one to my google one with google voice! the software chose the wrong authenticator. it's also a bit slow on my phone and has crashed once :-( I'll send em some feedback on it

    at least I have the thing setup to dial the number at least and read my weather and post to facebook for me that's a cool service!

    Ok so I have a predicament. The EA games such as mass effect infiltrator, dead space etc require a net connection to get the game going. I'm going to Hawaii in a couple of weeks for a holiday and would like to have some games to play on a 8 or so ish hour plane trip. Anyway to bypass this?

    :O. I knew the new airbuses had it!

    And I found out the USB predicament. It seems the developers of the "AAA" android titles only allow storage on the phone memory to increase the loading and perf of the games. As I am able to install some smaller games on my SD such as Cogs :eek:

    EDIT: I'm giving my little bro my old phone. I flashed this rom to it. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1529777

    When I try install Gapps from the rom owner it says verifying update package..E: Wrong digest: system.app/Vending.apk
    E: Verification failed.

    WTF does that mean?

    It's best to use the one that comes with your phone. If it doesn't have one, than any should do.

    Question, why is the Galaxy S II far more popular than the galaxy nexus? Where I am from, the prices are similar, but the gnex has better hardware all round and android 4... :confused:

    Do people not research before they buy?

    Actually the S2 is superior in hardware terms, it does have 4.0.3 which is what the gnex has. And it's also cheaper. The Gnex has a higher res screen though.

    Prices are similar? That only means either of the two:
    1. The Nexus is selling so badly that they now reduced its price to the SII's level
    2. The SII is selling so well that they can still afford to increase its price to the Nexus' level

    It has samsung's raped version of ICS, while gnex has googles version of ICS. Gnex has a bigger screen and doesn't have a weird blue hue like SII does...

    Hahahaha, that's true I guess...

    SII has better cameras both back and front 8MP back vs. 5MP and 2MP front vs. 1.3 MP.
    I can vouch there's no blue hue in SII screen. Basically the only difference is in size in favor of Nexus. I think it's up to anyone's choices really.

    Shouldn't be using a task killer at all. It does more hurt than help.

    my GF was bitching about hwo facebook notifications were screwing up, and she wasnt get told about messages.

    yep, task killer.


    i just enable the 'long press back to force close' option and FC programs that dont matter, like camera and games.

    The exynos chipset and the mali 400 in the S2 is a good margin faster than the (i think) qualcomm and the PowerVR SGX540. The larges res on the gnex means it works harder to get fluid frames while the S2 does it with ease... The S2 doesn't have a weird blue hue and you can just download apex or nova launcher from the play store and its a more customisable version of the ICS launcher and runs better aswell :)

    heres a tough one.


    for a few days i've had intermittent internet lag that i could never locate the cause of.


    turns out whenever my samsung galaxy S is using the net (can be triggered every time by downloading a file or running a speedtest) my ping to my router (over wifi, LAN only!) shoots up to insane levels.


    swap the phone to 3G or cancel the download, and the ping drops.


    anyone got any ideas to stop the wifi causing the network to herniate?


    edit:

    i started up speedtest on my phone, and while it was 'locating servers' the ping spiked. i let it finish, and it calmed down - started the test and lag resumed. the moment i force closed the speedtest app on the phone (other downloads cause the same lag), bam, packet loss, before it cleared itself up.
