    and for 90% of apps that's great - but the one thing no one seems to take into account is shoddy programming. there are more than enough apps out there are that simply don't exit when they should, and DO stay in the background longer than necessary. also, personally - i like to know that i can end a process when i want it to end. as simple as that. i don't care if readerHD is scheduled to or wants to update it's feeds right now - i want it closed and i want the ability to do that whenever i decide it's necessary.

    I am not advocating willy nilly killing all processes, and you're right that 90% or more of users will have no need of one - but to make it sound as though there is never a use for one and the android mms is a perfect solution i think is a little too far.

    sorry for the rant ... i just think there's a little more to it than "shouldn't use a task killer at all"

    I know I know what is "good for the goose" applies here as I very rarely run any extra apps. The occasional Twonky and Slacker. So I am one of the worst people to ask about it with that topic.

    Ok fella's, if you seen my thread earlier then you would know what went down but for those who didn't here it is

    my OG droid finally bit the bucket and died (water damage from brother in laws beer cooler). After its water over dose, I searched for a temp phone until I change carriers later this year. I talked a guy on ebay into selling me his previously listed 75$ HTC Thunderbolt into 55$ shipped. It does work but screen is broken but functional so I will have to deal with that until it comes time to say goodbye to verizon. Does anyone else here have a thunderbolt? I have seen that there is an ICS rom for it but not much else. This will be my first 4G phone so I am super excited.

    Let me get with a buddy of mine who had a Thunderbolt at one point in time. He went OG, to Tbolt to Gnex.

    Hey, ask the guy you are buying off of if he has the bootloader unlocked and/or s-off.

    I doubt this due to the seller being a cell phone shop. Couldn't I do the S-off and stuff?

    *sigh* keep looking for a solid S-off for the rezound... there's a method, but it's ... challenging :), even with the new all-in-one tool.... I haven't dug deep into the toolkit, but the earlier methods included using a wire or paperclip to short out pins on the board while booting...

    Took me 5 minutes even on the earlier method(had an extra mini sd card and a read to recover my card). You would still need to the wire trick even with the toolkit.

    Yours should be just confirm adb/fasboot works and a click-n-run method.

    Shipping finally updated. I called the verizon store and they said that to bring the phone in and they would give me a sim card and activate it for me in store.

    I talked the wife into getting a Droid Razr Maxx. Has anyone heard when the OTA update to ICS might happen? The last I heard was late Q2, which means in the next 11 days...

    I am super excited! I want my phone back! I am using my work phone just to keep contact with my wife. LOL I can imagine the look on the employees faces at verizon when I bring that cracked screen phone in to activate HAHA they will probably be like WTF!

    Hey, if they have questions they will understand if you're honest.

    @tski

    Sometime in July is my speculation. Guessing around the same time as us Rezound users.

    She just got it on Monday and she's liking it a lot. I was hoping to see ICS sooner so I have to explain things less (for two different revisions) lol
