[QUOTE=lum1naire;34827195]Finally made the decision to just get the Galaxy Nexus, excited to get it in a couple of days :D Nearly bought an iPhone 4S but I think I made the right decision...

My only problem with it still is I hope I don't get annoyed by its size.[/QUOTE] I have relatively small hands but have no problems getting around the device, so unless you're a midget I think you'll be fine Plus it's mostly about how you hold the phone, and Samsung have got the ergonomics spot on
i just got my galaxy nexus back (headphone jack didn't work properly). goodbye iphone
Posting from my new acer iconia. Amazing device so far
[QUOTE=McGee;34829052]They are[/QUOTE] uhhh no? Rooting is about pushing an SU binary to the phone, to get access to the SU command, and Jailbreaking is about changing the firmware in order to install non market apps.

[QUOTE=McGee;34830360]thats from circlejerking not me[/QUOTE] No I'm pretty damn sure it's because you post shitty arguments and only list horrible sources to back them up.
[QUOTE=Van-man;34830380]No I'm pretty damn sure it's because you post shitty arguments and only list horrible sources to back them up.[/QUOTE] because shoving your fingers in your ears and shouting im wrong makes it so [editline]23rd February 2012[/editline] "As already stated, Rooting and Jailbreaking are essentially the same things, Jailbreaking is the iPhone users' word for what Android users call Rooting. Rooting is when you gain "Root" access to the phone giving you the power to do anything you want to it (it comes from the Unix Root User, essentially the Unix equivalent to the Windows Administrator account). Normally you're prevented from being Root for your own good, as it's very easy to break your phone once you have root access, and quite hard to break it without."

How about you stop arguing about this? Rooting and jailbreaking are very similar concepts (more access to the phone), but the technical implementation is very different (changing the firmware vs. adding a su binary).
so it changes the core files?

Hey guys. Guys I I have a good idea Guys listen Let's go into... Into the iOS thread and Guys Claim we know more than them about iOS
[QUOTE=PyroCF;34831259]Hey guys. Guys I I have a good idea Guys listen Let's go into... Into the iOS thread and Guys Claim we know more than them about iOS[/QUOTE] We probably do though.
[QUOTE=mobrockers2;34831382]We probably do though.[/QUOTE] Funny thing is, you are probably right considering many of the Android thread regulars are tech savvy and competent in Linux

[QUOTE=mankind_me;34831990]im somewhat of a regular and i dont know shit about linux[/QUOTE] Same here. Guess I compensate it with knowing a lot about other.. tech stuff. Yes. A lot.
[QUOTE=K1ngo64;34831630]Funny thing is, you are probably right considering many of the Android thread regulars are tech savvy and competent in Linux[/QUOTE] I'm fairly Linux savvy and I know iOS users who know [i]a lot[/i] more about Linux than I do. That's a stupid generalization.
