The single best post in all of AF history, thanks to OTD during the GN pre-release thread.

***Official Galaxy Nexus Pre-Release speculation thread**

In a nutshell, it concerns what you can do/not do to VZW employees to squeeze a little info out of them, from beheading to driving stakes through their hearts (watch out OTD!).

Why was it helpful? Because the masses were going out of control; thousands of AF members were going to start rioting, maybe even kidnapping VZW employees, just to get a release date. People were being infracted, some banned. This was THE perfect post to help calm the townsfolk carrying torches and pitchforks. Genius. Pure genius.

[FAQ] ADB and FASTBOOT for Windows (Updated 1st June 2011)

Covers both ADB and fastboot, making this the standout thread IMO. A must read for anybody who's serious about rooting and how to interface an Android phone the old skool, down and dirty way...the way it was meant to be done.

SUroot has a few candidates for best thread award imo.

Official ICS 4.0.X Discussion and Links Thread

While we were all waiting for an official ICS update for the Nexus S, I spent hours of each day searching the far corners of the internet for news to keep this thread updated. The entire Nexus S community on Android Forums came together under that same cause, and it seemed like just about everyone was able to contribute something helpful. It was really inspiring to see the forum working together like that, and it drove me to keep that thread as up to date and relevant as possible.

That thread made me proud to be an active member of AndroidForums.

AT&T - HTC Vivid Android 4.0 ICS Maintenance Release Offical

This is my favorite tread because, it was about the ICS 4.0 update that came out for my phone. This was by far my most anticipated android update to date and I was extremely happy that it came out so quickly to my phone.

I'll enter my own - How to fix Froyo or Gingerbread (or any rom update)

This raised awareness that major OTA updates can get all sorts of bugs that look incurable when all that's required is a little dusting and cleaning under the hood.

The advice has since spread to most all of our device forums and is the popular solution now at other sites as well.

A lot of Android love has been saved by that advice and will continue to be. More than a thread, it was the first that spawned a class of those threads and posts.

While I was the OP, the thread was based on the information of a large host of dedicated Evo owners working around the clock to pool resources, reach consensus and come to conclusion.

So not only is it solid Android advice, it's at once a tribute and the proof that a community of Android lovers pulling together can overcome great problems.

Maybe after the fact, the advice seems simple and obvious today, but the power of the community remains.

Default All things root!

All things Root


About three months ago I finally decided to try and root my Fascinate. I really wanted to get rid of all of the Verizon crud that just seemed to be dragging my phone speed down, including battery life.

So I searched on how to root and it was here that I found detailed steps to root the phone and install Cyanogenmod. While this was just a replacement Gingerbread ROM, it did do wonders for my phone. It was a little buggy for me, so I found MIUI and installed that. That was an even bigger upgrade in performance, but not quite what I wanted.

Reading through the forums some more, I found AOKP and took the plunge. I have never looked back.

If you need to know something about your Android device, this is THE place to come for answers. Now I need to spend time reading through the posts seeing if I can help others as much as I've been helped.

Default An old post about the droid 1 flashlight widget, the original.

FlashLight that uses Camera Flash

This thread is my favorite. I believe that the Droid 1 changed the way everyone looked at Android and the marketing surrounding it helped make it a technology boomer. When I bought mine, I was coming from a blackberry and had no idea how great the community was. That's what makes Android for me, the community. In this thread above, it shows how a request was made and a developer lost sleep over getting this application out to the masses. Sure, a flashlight app is not exciting and today there are hundreds on the market...but it's about HOW this came about, not necessarily what it does. He had people (braver than I was at the time) testing for him and then a lot of the community was ready to toss money at him. It was a helpful application and to me? This is what Android is about. Fast turn around on applications, an innovative and helpful community, sleek devices, and a little bit of iBashing.

And of course, without AndroidForums.com we may still be waiting on that silly flashlight application on the MotoDroid 1

My favorite thread is currently a thread I loath... The elongated wait for ICS on my Razr. I have one of the ones that won't seem to take the current 211 official release. I spend 8hrs (kid you not) flashing/reflashing Rooting/unrooting trying to get a combination that worked.... Nothing did. Bricked it every time. Thank God for Matt Goff.

I Want Some CM9

Not very old. Started about a week ago.
The thread is in effort to support one of AF's most respected developers, Playfulgod.
He is currently working on building CM9 for the Metro PCS LG Esteem. In the middle of doing so he bricked his phone.
Members of the Esteem community all gathered together and raised up enough money to buy PG an LG Esteem to continue developing .

It now has kind of turned into a place for people with the phone to chat. LOL

In my opinion this proves that AF is the best android forum/ community.

My favorite post is the Zero Tolerance Post: Zero Tolerance Policy (All Members Read!)

While I'm relatively new here, I am a mod on another unrelated forum and I wish we had this policy. This policy allows all of these other wonderful threads to grow and be the Treasure Trove they are.

I haven't been very active here for no particular reason, but after discovering this post last night. I plan to be here a lot more. Thank you for setting a HIGH standard of behavior. (Btw, have you considered linking to that post from within the Site Rules post?)

Thanks for a great friendly community atmosphere!

Interesting article on the future Motorola/Google merger.

This is my favorite thread because for months there was talk and rumors of Motorola going bankrupt or going out of the cell phone business. When the Motorola/Google merger happened, it squashed all that talk. Not only that, it ENERGIZED Motorola users and Google lovers world wide!

Happy Holidroid Contest 12/6: Secret Phrase!

The Holidroid Contest thread where I was 1 post away from winning the challenge... And lost by seconds to a bot/script on the RSS XML feed...

But afterwards Phandroid replied to my pleas apologetically and professionally, promising they would make clearer, concise contest rules along with thinking of ways to make the contests more fair without chance of cheating.

The result was the Secret Image challenge which was a cheat-proof, much better thought out and fair contest (also mentioned earlier in this thread!).

So far all the contests have been looking pretty good (like these Google IO ones) but I haven't come as close to winning any as I was last Christmas!!

How To Root + Install Custom ROM + Backup + More

How to root the HTC Hero.

The hero wasn't the first android device, but it was the first one to be really popular internationally. When people started to learn what they could do with their device with a little hacking, they were intrigued, but scared. This thread was the one stop shop for everything you needed to know, and it was written in plain English for everyone to understand.

It was a shining beacon of light in a sea of Linux technical jargon, and held many peoples hand into their first android experience. Its the thread that got a lot of people interested in the inner workings of android and I believe deserves recognition.

My hero is looking a little old now (since my Inc s broke out of warranty )... could do with an upgrade

Tutorial: Moving Stuff Between Android and PC


I would have to say that this is the most important thread here for me and one of my main reasons for constantly coming back. If it had not been for this and other posts, think of the advancements that may have never come to be. Straight to the point yet very informative. I give the OP a thumbs up

Welcome to the HTC Dream Forum!

It all began with my G1 and with me reading this, and has just gotten better ever since.

[Revised] Rooting Gingerbread 2.3.5 Dummies Guide

Why do I love this? It helped me become a "phone wizard" with my friends. A few of them had Evos and I always loved to root things and well once I did it based of this thread my friends come back to me with all their new phones. Personally I run a unrooted Htc G2 but it once wore the colors of a root! Thank you androidforums!

While I may have not have been a member until today. I have been a long time lurker. I have read many threads and this one definitely my favorite. It helped me take my already great device and unlock it to its full potential.

Wink My Favorite Thread

I vote CONTEST: Google IO Gift Pack #3… World’s Best Android Forums as the best thread because it lead me to this contest thread and because this contest thread will lead me to the treasure trove and the treasure trove contains:

A Galaxy Nexus
A Nexus 7
A Nexus Q

...and those three things will bring me many more chances to visit the android forums!

As an actual Android Hardcore user and developer, this thread was really helpful while the new android OS; ICS was introduced. It was so much easier for me to understand the OS as a whole. Really appreciated all the info given here.

Do you have a tip/trick for ICS? Post it here.

Default Favourite Thread

My favourite thread simply because it reminds me of when I finally got back and android device after being loured to the dark side . While it may only have been a few weeks but I am back in love with android after getting a fantastic if heavy tablet at a fantastic price (makes the nexus 7 sting a little less that I got it so cheap). Post your "I have my Xoom" posts here...

Verizon Pre-order, Release date, and speculation thread

This is my favorite because I was nearing the end of my contact and was excited about what the new Galaxy phone would be like when and if it came to Verizon. As a result I already have it preordered and am patiently waiting for it.
