[QUOTE=PyroCF;34046316]If you don't use the camera, yes. It's just SO nice.[/QUOTE] I guess I don't mind missing the camera, thanks!
[QUOTE=Gubru;34046048]Wow, thanks guys! But won't doing this potentially make me lose the warranty on my phone? Is it worth trying to get it fixed or replaced first, to see if that fixes any of my bugs?[/QUOTE] if something goes wrong, you just relock your bootloader and reflash your old firmware. just make a nandroid backup (full backup) to be sure to have it. but its really hard to destroy your phone, once you unlocked it. only when doing the bootloader unlocking process there is a chance of 0,001% that you destroy your phone. it takes about a few seconds.
I am thinking of making a phone hardware thread. I want to make an OP listing down every android phone model. I know its not needed, but I thought it would be nice.

Well, you might be tempted by the latest addition to the Galaxy family that's just gone official in Korea. While the shell appears nigh-on indistinguishable from the previously announced Galaxy R, there are some notable spec differences. The M totes a four-inch Super AMOLED screen, not the Super Clear LCD found on the R, while there's also only a single-core 1GHz processor here, not the dual-core Tegra 2 found on its older brother. The camera has also felt the pinch, shrinking from a five megapixel to a three megapixel offering. The Gingerbread handset measures in at just under 10mm thick, while still packing a TV tuner and a metallic body more similar to the Wave series than the plastic-backed Galaxy family. The M moniker places it in the high-end affordable spectrum, according to Sammy's latest naming strategy, priced at around $500, although there's no news on a release outside of its homeland just yet. The phone will arrive in three confusing color options; Platinum Silver [above], Blue Black and Lavender Pink. See whether the specification trade-off is worth it for a dose of Super AMOLED goodness by inspecting the source below.[/release] [url]http://www.engadget.com/2012/01/04/samsung-galaxy-m-super-amoled/[/url]

Looks like a cheap chinese copy of the original SGS2, and the white is damn ugly, especially with the sensor buttons being white too.
Repost. Also, is "rooting" legal?Just curious What's the best backup app?Titanium backup requires a root and I don't plan on doing whatever that means. Also, does the remote GPS feature work for anyone on "androidlost"? [QUOTE=mankind_me;34034927]Quite good, though Android OS bug is there It's not as good as other ROMs, but still, during the 8 or so hours I've slept it went down 5%[/QUOTE] Whats up with the android OS bug?
Rooting is legal unless there's some super-retarded law that I haven't seen yet. But it's YOUR phone, so what the fuck. The only downside of rooting is that you lose warranty, but you can unroot and get warranty back. Best backup app would be Titanium Backup IMO, but yeah, you just NEED root. Seriously if you want to do anything a little more advanced, root is needed. No idea about Androidlost, haven't tried it. Android OS bug: If you look in Battery Stats and "Android OS" is at the top with most percent AND your battery is dying fast - that's the bug. I don't know much more but if you check Google, there's thousands of results.
Awesome, thanks.Is rooting complicated?I know there's some stuff about it in the OP, but I never really liked fiddling around with phones (until now mabye :v:) [QUOTE=iCole;34047402]Rooting is legal unless there's some super-retarded law that I haven't seen yet.

oh, so a thread listing all the phones you own? go for it.
Keep an eye on CES this year, so much stuff to be announced. Intel is even joining the processor game this year!

For example, with a Galaxy S2 you can just flash a rooted kernel - the whole process takes less than a minute if you have everything ready and follow the guide step by step.

[QUOTE=TehWhale;34039354]I'm trying to boot my phone into recovery but only adb reboot recovery works. If I use volume down + power it takes me into Odin download mode and I can't do anything. How do I get into CWM recovery from boot?[/QUOTE] volume up instead of volume down

[QUOTE=mankind_me;34047641]do iiit[/QUOTE] I would very much like the camera to work first. And a switch for data networks somewhere else then in Settings would be nice, too. Then I'll be like Kool-Aid guy smashing through the wall to get ICS on my phone.
