Benchmark Scores bench...mark? i do leave mark on bench sometime, to remember which one is the most comfortable. :o
yes there is a bench for android... we should start a thread!
read some post before .... also Samsung got banned from 3DMarks for "cheating" because they programmed the rom to make the SOC run faster when benchmarking xD (specially the Exynos 5 Octa (the fake 8core))
bench doesn't reflect the perf or user experience of the phone, we can post score here no need for a thread who would have 2 or 3 score at maximum.

that just means it reverted to dalvik. look into what its running, it should have reset to dalvik.
aannnd NO ... i checked and re checked ART is active even after reboot ...

where is the fun, if you can't softbrick or have bugs ... tinkering is fun .... otherwise i would have a iPhone if i wanted a "safe, updated, closed, overexepensive for nothing, smartphone"

every 4.4 rom for the s4 i9505 i've seen, has been deodexed. every one of those phones bricks and cant be fixed with any less than a full wipe (so not a factory reset, wiping all partitions) if you tried ART on them. that may be different for other phones, but there is no harm in warning people to check compatibility first.

Sheesh that's a powerful unit. My poor old note 10.1! Still having fun with this old thing though... now on the Hyperdrive rom with the Zeus kernel. Seems to be the best so far. Was trying vpn to a server I run down in the States, and it wouldn't connect, found out the server is running xp home, (yes it will be upgraded to win7 soon), and has no ppp encryption. The stock settings on my tablet don't have encryption settings, so I had to dl VpnRoot because it allows you to uncheck encryption, so now it works. Weird stuff. So vpn works, local smb shares work, the only thing I still can't get to work is cifs shares. I think I have to flash cifs.ko or something to the kernel.... Did 3 rom flashes today alone just to test stuff, so I think I could do it if I knew how....

one thing for sure ... no need for the last one to enjoy fully the device ...

so as i wrote above i sold the SGSIII and took a cheap Xperia Play : BL Unlock, Flashtool FTF .79, Fastboot flash Lupus V7 Kernel, CWM flash Neo2Play 4.0.4

while it score nearly 3.5times under my SGSII (not stock ofc) PPSSPP is smooth and less sound crack and stutter... Tiny AR 2 at 1/160 physics + max texture same result... FPse none of my usual iso is laggy ...

i have to say : "WOW" a single core Snapdragon MSM8255 @1.6 with a Adreno 205 (single core as well ) feel almost (but way enough) smooth as a quad core Exynos 4412 @1.6 with a Mali400Mp4 (quad core)

one thing for sure ... no need for the last one to enjoy fully the device ...

so as i wrote above i sold the SGSIII and took a cheap Xperia Play : BL Unlock, Flashtool FTF .79, Fastboot flash Lupus V7 Kernel, CWM flash Neo2Play 4.0.4

while it score nearly 3.5times under my SGSII (not stock ofc) PPSSPP is smooth and less sound crack and stutter... Tiny AR 2 at 1/160 physics + max texture same result... FPse none of my usual iso is laggy ...

i have to say : "WOW" a single core Snapdragon MSM8255 @1.6 with a Adreno 205 (single core as well ) feel almost (but way enough) smooth as a quad core Exynos 4412 @1.6 with a Mali400Mp4 (quad core)
Both my Snapdragons rolled really well....
*edit* I almost forgot my Original DInc!! So, all three of my snaps (Dinc 1, Dinc 2, and Rezound) were all solid.

Maybe I'm stupid but on vodaphone support they told me that I can get 4.4 kitkat update from android play store.But to me it seems only launcher thats makes your phone look like kitkat,but its not actual software update.Are they trying to fool me or what?
the play store had a 4.4 update, but otherwise they're blowing smoke up your ass.

got some new tools coming in for screen repairs.

short version: you can pry off the glass, clean off the liquid adhesive + regular adhesive, replace glass and have a working phone.


buuuuut, it seems to cause issues with the S3's i've repaired where the touchscreen 'overloads' sometimes and you have to power it off and on (the screen, not the whole phone) to make it work again.

got some acetone + alcohol wipes coming in to clean it better, and what they call "OCA" adhesive - basically a sticky sheet instead of an annoying to apply liquid adhesive, designed to fill the gap and stop this problem.

got two phones i've repaired with this method to test it on and see if it fixes the problems, if it does expect pics and such here.

hey mussels where would you suggest getting a replacement screen for my nexus 5? I am having trouble finding it for anything less than $140(ebay). It may not be possible but figured it's worth asking. thanks ;)
