    You got, or suggestion for 1kurgan1?

    If suggestion, might be a touch small.

    I suggest at least 8.4" and stay away from china no name brands. Alot of peeps at work want me to tune them up, but the support from Dev community isn't there. And I'm not a dev, just an optimizer.

    Also check out the tablet owners clubhouse.

    My post was a little too short. I'm surprised though that this launch was not covered here at TPU (or maybe I missed it). It was a suggestion for 1kurgan1 as he said specifically that he needs a 200$ tablet. Nexus 7 is available for preorder there in USA, it sports a quad Tegra 3 and against all the cons (like no microSD and maybe the 7 inch screen) the price is unbeatable. It is the first tablet that I might consider buying.

    I've finally received my (international) Samsung Galaxy SIII - if I think it is fast now, I'm looking forward to seeing Jelly Bean and hopefully the Linaro code running on it.

    :D

    Happy Days!

    HP Touchpads can be had cheap, and have not seen much mine couldn't do. Running ICS on it now (CM9), which is way better than GB (CM7). From what I've read, there hasn't been much out there for apps that could actually take advantage of quad-cores.

    Any hopes of the S2 getting JB? I really hope Samsung doesn't desert the S2, considering its still one of the biggest sellers.

    If they don't. Like WTF. The Nexus S is getting the update for fucks sake.

    People have got JB working somewhat on the SGS, so I expect you'll see it.

    Just got my Kindle Fire in the mail, looking at how to root it right now then get ICS. Not sure where I want to go from there, got some reading to do I guess.

    finally upgraded my og evo ;) was waiting for the galaxy s3 but after two weeks on backorder i went with the htc evo lte. it was more a necessity as my og evo stopped ringing :( sms, alarms, etc worked fine, but no matter the settings or rom it simply wouldn't ring, and the power button had gone wonky as well.

    so now i've got the lte - it'z crazy that this thing is bigger, faster, and has more memory but is thinner and much, much, MUCH lighter. it's taking some getting used to.

    happy though, now i've got native ICS and a device that can run it well. i don't even think i will root anytime soon, no real reason to atm.

    I want to put ICS on my Droid Incredible. Anyone know a good, stable rom that allows everything to work (camera included)?

    just look around for MIUI variants that support your phone. someone always ports it to each model.

    miui is an aosp rom, which basically means it takes google's open source release and patches, updates, skins it, etc, to make a fully functional rom that is compatible with many devices.

    compare that to cyanogen mod for example, which is normally a hacked version of a rom released by a specific carrier for specific devices. it is less cross compatible than miui, but it does have the advantage of being made for specific devices, so if you have one of them it should run well.

    MIUI is a big, multi device ROM. its well tested, and gets lots of bug fixes on a regular basis.


    CM as digi said is based on hacked roms, so the support often isnt there, if it doesnt work right it may never get fixed.


    also, MIUI has shittons of added features. 'firewall' for white/blacklisting contacts (so you can block your ex or that idiot who prank calls at 3am), random things like that i cant even name because i've been using it for so long i cant actually recall the stock ROM

    Ok my predicament here. I don't give two shits about this phone but wanting to flash for little brother as he smashed his phone screen when it dropped out of his pocket.

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1626281

    Trying to flash this. The phone currently has an infinite boot loop from an old rom.

    I wipe EVERYTHING. Then try flash the zip. This is what I get.
    Install from sdcard.
    Opening update package.
    Verifying update package.
    E: Missing file: extras/app/VideoEditor.apk
    E: Verification failed.
    Installation aborted.

    Da fuq.
