should have put plan b on there it will locate your device if you loose it or it's stolen!
Yeah, JB is pretty sweet. Still waiting for the 4.1.2 update on my GNex though
Hope to get a razr soon. My thunderbolt bit the dust again so need a new phone. I should have just let it die the first time.
Wait - I thought this was supposed to be 4.1.2? I thought 4.2 was KLP?
4.2 is a new iteration of JB. KLP is being saved for another release, I guess.
I feel that my tech level is good enough to replace the damaged parts of my HTC MyTouch slide 3g myself. I have looked at many used phones on ebay, forums, craigslist and they are still way to expensive.
So my phone started having problems after a couple drops and the screen would split when sliding open the keyboard. Now just last week I dropped my phone again and this time the lcd screen went black all together! The phone still powers up and sounds normal, but there is no display at all.
My question: I plan on purchasing the parts from this site here. Do you guys know if I need just the LCD or both the lcd and Digitizer Glass replacement?
Thank you in advance! (ps. I need this phone fixed before Thanksgiving
Sounds like the zif-cable is loose (or damaged).
I would try disassembling and reassembling the existing parts first.
Protip: use plastic tools for anything that is not screwed down. You will ruin the casing with screwdrivers.
I've been due a phone upgrade for a few months but was holding off to see what Google was offering and although the Nexus 4 is a nice phone and is only $299 unlocked from Google, it doesn't have an SD card slot which is an issue, if my carrier does get it it'll only be 8GB. I don't know what price they'd have it at though, adjusted for tax it should be €290-300 unlocked but I doubt it.
Anyway, they also recently dropped the price of the Galaxy SIII from €199 to €149 on my contract and by trading my Galaxy SII in it'll be €49. At this rate though I'll probably wait for the next round of phones in Spring lol. I really want the SIII but by the time I get around to having cash for a phone it'll be too old
Thanks for the tips Thrack, I will try that before buying any replacement parts and will keep you guys posted.
^ this. i've not repaired phones, but i've repaired enough GPS devices and tablets to know this advice is solid.
i agree. this is a reason i dont have slider phones
Changed my HTC Desire CM18.104.22.168 for a Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro on ICS 4.0.4 . very nice phone
Picked up droid razr's for me and the wife for 1 cent each! Anyone else using this phone??
My wide has a Razr Maxx and so does one co-worker. Another co-worker has the Razr (standard). He's running AOKP 4.2 on it IIRC.
Yea I already been browsing droidforums for the root instructions. Seems straight forwards on which release it comes preloaded with (ginger or ICS). My thunderbolt had finally met its maker as of late so it was good timing that amazon wireless started their black friday sales! I got my wife the black one and I got the blue one.
Got the razrs and after some learning some things, I did a full OTA update then one click root with safestrap recovery on both. Now I am going to test some roms!
I'm running a Razr Maxx, in a monster case.
Well, After the dick move by Sony pulling android support for 2011 flagship handsets.....
Im left with an Xperia Arc S with ICS that crashes more then windows 98. at first i thought it was the update gone bad, so I did a complete reboot and ICS is still a bitch and it interferes with some apps and the kill timer for background apps doesnt work which means I can end up with as many as 5 or 6 apps loaded up at anyone time that have been there for an entire week even though I havent touched it since monday.
I could root my handset but i remember having some difficulty with it a while back and i just cant be arsed...
So this christmas, Im going to replace it with a Galaxy S3, Im also going to pawn off the Xperia Arc which means I pay a maximum of $450 for the S3 - the only contracts here are 24months and i dont want to get drawn into it. $450 might not be cheap in the US but thats the best its gonna get in the UK.
Save your money, the HTC one X is a better phone, Try getting custom roms for the xperia it'll be better i'd think!
Ive read both reviews on techrader - the S3 ticks more boxes for me.
I am so happy with my Motorola android phone I bought a Motorola Xoom2 tablet.
just got a samsung galaxy ace and modded it with a galaxy S II firmware.
funny that it works, but its smoother than the stock ROM XD (based on jelly bean ofc. the link for anyone interested:
first i want ace but later i take galaxy w, ive flashed several roms but so far theres no rom that meet my expectation, but for the next few days im gonna flash it with indroid or cm10
and see how it works
never seen the Y or tried to mod it.
my advice is look for custom ROM's with large threads - they're the ones being regularly updated, therefore most likely to be usable/stable. some of the ones i tried required EXT4 formatted SD cards, or the camera didnt work... all sorts of stupid bugs.
Anyone excited? Jellybean for the galaxy s2 and s3 and original note is just around the corner
