indeed CM11 is nightlies state still i use it daily and with ART activated i don't encounter many FC or bugs, its either that i'm lucky or that Temasek is a really good cooker ...

well as long as you can get the CM installer from other sources than google play it's nothing to worry about but since the CM11 on S3 is unofficial: it will not be possible with the installer iirc, only CM9 CM10 will be available. still a major improvement over a stock rom tho.


was about to say that ... Odin rooting is just too easy and after that DL from google play Rom Manager and flash recovery (Clockworkmod preferably) then just follow any thread on XDA about a custom rom (that's what i did with my CM11)
yeah thats simple and great idea but i just found some memory card will fail if you backup your system in it

yep that's unfortunate, i always use Sandisk or Patriot µSD but Samsung and other brand could do fine too, i wonder if it was some no name who had that behavior, only once i had a backup fail and it was a cheap no name "labelled" C10

Just ordered my G2 to upgrade from my GNex. What are the best tools to backup my apps so I can restore them on the new phone? I know I can go to android.com and just install everything, but I don't want to lose my progress on some of my games.

if you're rooted you can use titanium backup to backup and restore apps, but otherwise progress will likely be lost.

got my nexus 5, waiting for my case to come in. a note for any sprint users, you will need to get a uicc (micro sim) card from a sprint CORPORATE store in order to activate your nexus.

You can have your full size Sim cut to a micro one, so no need to change your number.

Guys, I'm having a really big problem with my Huawei. It seems that after a certain amount of time in standby, it does not get any notifications. I wake up in the morning/afternoon and I'll get about half a dozen notifications firing from various times while I was asleep. Even if someone sends me an IM, I won't get the notification till I unlock the phone, which could be hours later. This is absolutely ridiculous. It's been like this since I got it.

Look at the notifications settings to see if it has any "quiet hours." it may even have the option to not wake the phone from sleep if you get notifications.

Is this stock or rooted?

Stock ROM, rooted with EROOT. I can't find anything about "quiet hours" in the settings, and googling it mainly brings up results related to 3rd party apps or OEMs coding it directly into their custom ROMs. So maybe Huawei did that, I'm not sure.

Other googling led me to this, which suggests it's a known issue with a fix in the works for 4.3. But Huawei aren't exactly HTC or Samsung when it comes to firmware upgrades.

A coworker has that brand of phone and seems to like it, but I admit I don't know much about it.

check in the advanced wifi settings to see if wifi turns off when the screen goes off. could be doing that to save power (standard options are always on, off when screen off, on when charging/screen on)

i'm definitely liking it as well. i ALMOST really like the hangouts switchup, but I still use a third-party sms (chomp) as it supports delayed sending and individual contact alert tones. I really like the Ok, Google feature, but i guess that's kind of about time huh? ;)
i've had it all of an hour, so i havent played with many of the new features yet. i changed to the nova launcher which i think disabled the 'ok google' thing.

what phone do you have? and please, more details on your 4.4 experience.


mine coming from samsung 4.3 to google 4.4: it looks a lot simpler and plainer (lots of white or grey instead of color) but its 1/3 the size and runs a lot smoother.

4.4 kitkat is out for the i9505, modded i9505g rom :) veeeeery nice and about 1/3 the size of the samsung roms.
15days after my S3 now i know why i hate officials roms :laugh: and indeed custom roms are a third the size of a samsung one since they have no samsung crap in it... (and samsung said the "aviable residual space scandale" in the main memory was unavoidable ... peuh... :D stock google/AOSP/AOKP (CM/Omni/Slim) those are way better ...

as for my 4.4 i started with V6 and no bug and other joy now im on V15 avec Boeffla's Kernel 2,1 Beta3 but the beta2.1 was a bit better :)

i wonder since i saw other GT-I9300 owner having those problems, i tried to re enact the event which where supposed to make the phone and rom bug and : nothing, same phone same rom ... only the user change, i wonder why xD

the S3 i have was supposed to be defective too :D it turned out that the previous owner did the infamous 4.3 update and the USB cable was defective so most of the charging problems and misbehavior of the device where from user error :D

if its like the s4, the baseband (aka modem firmware) can vary and be the cause of oh so many problems, since it doesnt update with the custom roms and has to be done seperate.


also since custom roms dont format the internal SD card, people tend to forget about crap they installed and dirty flash between roms and have lots of old tweaks nad crap stay active.

i dirty flash and never had to format the internal µSD

oh wait you mean between different roms ... woops aherm WIPE CACHE WIPE DALVIK WIPE SYSTEM is mandatory anyone who forget that deserve the problems he get, and would be scolded harshly if he reports as a bug the idiocy of his actions! hum ... a little too extreme ... let's forget this :peace:

most of the problems reported by other tester aren't related to the baseband so in the end it's only the organic part of the phone who fail :D (lame joke isn't it)

the Optimus 2x was way more trickier than that on baseband RIL and other joyfull things to check, Samsungs Galaxy serie are so simple to work around ... and that since the Galaxy S, nearly unbrickable (you have to try your hardest to brick a Galaxy ... or be really clueless) and quite good hardware wise

and now all my apps works just fine with ART with BanKs Gapps and the Boeffla's Kernel mentioned above (i think i might rollback to 2.1Beta)

i've had it all of an hour, so i havent played with many of the new features yet. i changed to the nova launcher which i think disabled the 'ok google' thing.
what phone do you have? and please, more details on your 4.4 experience.
mine coming from samsung 4.3 to google 4.4: it looks a lot simpler and plainer (lots of white or grey instead of color) but its 1/3 the size and runs a lot smoother.
just got a nexus 5 as my evo lte broke. I did the same and switched to Apex as my default launcher, and yes it does disable the always-on "google-on" , BUT with my phone I just have to slide from the dock menu toward the top of the screen and let go(the opposite of bringing the top menu down) and it brings up the ok, google screen from apex, which i like more than always on anyway.

other than that, i'm just getting used to it. do to the unforeseen cost i'm being a little extra careful with this device. I am actually using a case! and I have not yet rooted and really don't plan to. The main reasons to root was to a) (gasp) use wifi tethering when work emergencies come up while i'm "on the go", and b) use more lightweight roms. being direct from google, my phone still has the wifi tethering option though i'm sure my carrier would rather it not. and also being from google it doesn't have all the extra manufacturer crap on it, so i may not void the warranty any time soon ;)
