Maybe only 80% sure, but maybe try -

https://market.android.com/details?id=mobi.qiss.vega.ad

Or a combo of

https://market.android.com/details?id=com.bubblesoft.android.bubbleupnp

and MoboPlayer or similar.

Probably when VLC for Android hits, that will solve a lot of woes - it's still under development though.

ICS is all new and everyone thought that the Razr and the Rezound would have officially had ICS at this point.

My point is that we maybe wanting for an ICS polishing and that would mean 4.1.0 as the rumors grow on.
Lets face it 4.0.3 is not doing much.
there's already a guy in the vzw root forum that got 4.0.4 OTA

Yeah! I read that. One person out of millions that have a GNex has 4.0.4
Only Devs/testers would have 4.0.4 at this point.
Who knows, he maybe the CEO of Google.

Ask BB. lol

The actual quote would be "Connor Macleod of the clan McCloud" from the movie Highlander. There is a hockey player for Colorado named McCleod and every time they mention him in a game I say that quote. My girlfriend HATES it. lol

Morning everyone. Had a scare last night, while running on the treadmill, my arm got caught on my headphone wire and yanked my phone off its spot on the treadmill and down onto the belt, where I proceeded to step on it before it was shot off the back of the treadmill by the belt. It landed face down, and I thought for sure I would turn it over to find a smashed screen, but to my relief, no damage. Whew!

Morning all. Being up this early on a Saturday should be outlawed.
Antimony I'm relieved your phone is ok.

And for the record , I DID see Highlander AND Braveheart.

Hmmmm, Interesting, I was streaming XM until about an hour before it happened yesterday...

Yikes! Glad all is well. When I went to the gym (admittedly, I don't anymore ), I had a cheap Sandisk Sansa Clip mp3 player I used. It was super lightweight, 4gig, had a built in clip and got it on Amazon for about $30.
(always nice to hear stories about a solidly built phone. After so easily trashing the screen on our GT 10.1, I was a bit weary of Samsung durability)

Morning everyone!
For those who haven't seen these videos about the Nexus One, I love em. Wish they made them for the Gnex:
Nexus One: The Story - Episode 3: Testing - YouTube
(also love how the demo models are running Donut/Eclair)

Yeah, I have an iPod Nano, but no music on it, as I just sent in my 1st Gen for that battery recall, and got a 6th gen to replace it. PLUS I am using couch 2 5k app to train for 5k at the end of March. There is a thread complaining about broke screens, I do think the screen is easier to break just because of a lack of bezel, edge and corner hits can be deadly. But thankfully mine was OK...

What was the problems with the Nanos, were they catching on fire or something?

A big part of my job (and always has been) is troubleshooting so I'm all for it. Using the power of the Internet, public discussions, and the fact that we're all pretty darn nice people in here sounds like a FANTASTIC idea for trying to figure this problem out. EarlyMon, while I'm not trying to throw you under the bus, you've gotten us off to a great start with your ideas so if you wanted to take a leadership role on this with more suggestions, guidance, organization, etc., I'm all for it. I'm a big boy so you can tell me to go fly a kite if you're interested in more of a hands-off approach.

The one-way audio issue happened to me once today (at 10:17 AM), twice yesterday (at 2:40 PM and 11:29 AM) and once Wednesday (at 6:56 PM). I thought it was three times yesterday but it was only twice. All times are EST. When it happened this morning, it happened the instant I answered the phone... and that's the first time THAT'S happened. It's always been at least a few minutes into the call.

I'm not saying it is a regional issue, as I've read that plenty of other people across the US are having the same problem. But my Spidey Sense tingles when I read about all the folks in my area that have the issue.

Why do guys at the oil change place think they can scare me into getting hundreds of dollars worth of work done? If I wanted work done I'd bring it to a shop. I just want the oil changed!!

Fortunately, my wife takes care of the car duties (she uses it for work after all!). When we had to dump her old one it was because it needed $1400+ just to get on the road! Most of which was preventive care that she never took hold of. This was nearly a week before our wedding which we had to drive to NC for. My boss at work lent us their (old as hell) minivan to get there!
Long story short, I'm glad I'm able to commute to work by bus/metro
(but now that I'm on the line for our new car, I make sure it's taken care of )

My car is one thing that I definitely follow the standard stereotype for women. If the radio volume can no longer exceed the volume of the noise then its time to get it looked at. And the oil change sticker is a guideline.

Unfortunately, they probably have a pretty good success rate.

Just like they say you have the have an oil change every three thousand miles. When I let them know my owners manual says 7500 miles, they go the Hard Driving route and then define that as anything you possibly do with a car. That's when I show the where in my manual it clearly defines hard driving as like "constantly driving on dusty dirt roads" not because my commute is only 8 miles.

Our dealership for my wife's car is the same way. So annoying. They got her last time, they had a special for brake pads, so I sent her in since she needed them, well they managed to talk her into an "upgraded" service that wasn't on special, so cost us over twice as much. Turns out all it did was put performance pads that reduce brake fade. But she drives a freakin mini-van, pretty sure she is never going to be doing anything to heat up the brakes enough to experience brake fade.

The dealer for MY car is bad about always putting 3k on the sticker. But last time I asked for them to put 5k, they did it, but tried to charge me 12 dollars for the 5k service plan. So back to 3k on the sticker and I will bring it in every 5k.

Fortunately, our new Honda Fit is "woman friendly" in that it has a warning light to tell you to have the oil changed. Modern technology at its finest

$12 to write 5k on the little sticker. At least at my dealership they put the accurate mileage on and don't even fill out the date. The old 3 months, 3,000 miles thing has been out of date for years. Heck, my 2002 Ford Ranger was 6mo/5k and the entire maintenance schedule was around 5k intervals (5,15,25,50, etc.).

So a little fun fact. Since the pre-release thread was occupied for at least the first half with catching the Dinc thread (until it blew by it), I figured a little comparison of the lounge threads was in order.

It took Dinc Lounge 411 days to hit 6825. It took us... 60. Nice.

They said it had an extra inspection involved... My manual says 7500 between oil changes. I do 5k, even I am not ready to go that long, even if the Mobil 1 I get will easily go that long.

EarlyMon, while I'm not trying to throw you under the bus, you've gotten us off to a great start with your ideas so if you wanted to take a leadership role on this with more suggestions, guidance, organization, etc., I'm all for it. I'm a big boy so you can tell me to go fly a kite if you're interested in more of a hands-off approach.
Hands off? As in me keeping my trap shut and not posting? LoL

As for leadership, eh - probably not so much. I can kibitz in some ideas and suggestions, but without owning a Nexus, I can't really be one of you, so I'd be the last one as a good choice as a group leader. But I will commit to being a special mod for you to help re-org posts and whatnot and thread layout/organization by your community request, and I'm sure the other mods would be equally honored to help out that way.

Maybe my real power for you would be as the outsider to bounce ideas off of, and I'm all for that.

I won't deny that I know a bit about Android phones, but when it comes to the Nexus, I'm reminded of Kahlil Gibran's definition of a sage: A guy who's never been swimming and stands with his back to the ocean and a seashell to his ear, telling himself, now I know all about the sea.

So, I'll be glad to pitch in as much, or shut up as much, as people want, but ultimately, you cats can put a Nexus to your ear and all I got is this seashell.

Oh and PS - I mentioned that I can copy or move posts from here to that thread by you cats' requests. But I didn't mention, don't worry about the timeline. Once it's decided who's going to make and maintain the OP, I can make that go back in time to appear before posts from here. As Mr. Bean would say: Magic! snort snort! Oh, and duh, if folks just want to quote posts out of here, that's perfectly cromulent as well.

100% agree. The only thing I've ever enjoyed any of my cars saying to me is they've whispered, I'm paid for. I'm finally paid for. (And yes, all of my cars have been possessed by either good or bad daemons, and they all have whispered like ghosts. Some of them have been liars, but hey, you know.)

Considering the fact that I don't think she ever changed the oil on her old Protege, I don't imagine it'll be an issue for her

Default I hate my Treo

At the risk of getting flamed, I want to inform I hate my treo what he may run into when he picks up his new Nexus.

I too, am a former blackberry user. I wish I could say this phone is the cats meow. It's about a 7/10 on my personal ease of use scale.

Problems I've had include
1. Exchange native gobbling up data, and never "shutting off". Instead of trying endless fixes, I loaded Touchdown, and got it running, so I can send/receive email. Native exchange was running the phone dry, exchange gobbling data, 4 GB in a week of data trying to sort it out.

2. Minor issue here, but when someone calls, I'm used to seeing Joe Blow, Acme Widgets show up on the incoming display screen. I then have a chance of figuring out who it is, before I speak. Now I just get "joe Blow", and it's up to me to rack my brain, to sort him out of 3,000 contacts and figure out who he is, and how to reply. This won't be an issue for those who have under 100 contacts, it will be an issue for you "rolodex" types like me.

3. Spotty radio. Here in Colorado, I have to work in the woods a lot, 30-100 miles around Denver up in the foothills, out on the plains. My old blackberry storm had a MUCH better radio, better reception in marginal places. You will be dissappointed in this.

4. "one way call" syndrome. I thought this was probably my problem with my phone cell coverage, until I noticed it happpened on landlines I was talking with. The call continues, but the guy on the other end of the line is left wondering what happened to you. It's like you go mute in the middle of a call, but you never touched anything. This occurs both at my home office, when on wi fi, and also out on the road.

5. Software issues with related products. My blueAnt T1, my son bought me for Christmas just doesn't work with my Nexus. The ladies voice that's supposedly native to the Nexus, sounds like an android herself and she's virtually impossible to understand. Blueants website is strangely mute, level 2 tech support says, "we're working on it". It's supposed to announce the names of incoming callers, read your sms, or texts, etc. that's not happening.

That being said, there are features to love, fast maps, eventually being able to speak or dictate your emails or phone contacts and have it call for you. Videos, photos, etc, once figured out can be sent to clients from the scene.

I'm well beyond return time, so I've got to dance with the one that brung ya, but I'm telling you, this isn't a picnic to run a business with.

Your mileage may vary!

Man, it's so nice to be on the Nexus forum and see how much activity there is. Reminds me of the OG Droid days. I was initially pysched when I got my Bionic and noticed there was no one over there (XMR and Yankee aside). Soo boring.
Glad to see a huge rush of folks on the Nexus' threads!

Really, yours whispers I am paid for? Mine is more like the one from the commercial, where they pay the last payment on the phone while in the car, and then the rearview mirror falls off.

When I had my Z06, the day after the warranty ran out, BOTH window motors failed. They wanted $700 to fix them, I looked online and found window motors for $100 for two, decided to do it myself. In retrospect, I should have paid the $700. I have never been more frustrated in my life, trying to thread the cables onto the new motor pully blind while reaching in from either side, since its located in the middle of the door and the holes are at the edges, all the while the window trying to drop like a guillotine and sever my hands.

Um, yeah , in that case I guess it would be good. I at least get the oil changes done, late, but done.

jbdan, did you use to be a guide, like way back in the OG Droid days. Seems like I remember seeing you in green when I was getting ready to rot my OG. I saw you earlier today on a GNex thread and wanted to ask, but I didn't want to hijack the thread. I think it's OK to hijack this thread, its a little more freeflowing

Yeah, I thought I would fade out once I got the phone, thats what happened when I got my Dinc, and I will be honest over christmas I did a little, but I have since found myself spending plenty of time here again now that I am back at work (And I will be honest, tapatalk being re-instated has helped with that.. THANKS Rob!).

I'll admit it's been talked about (I had a hard time searching), but what are folks who use Volume+ (purchased) using for settings? I bought it but am unsure on how to go forward, obviously trying to avoid burning out the speaker.

Then the correct thing to do would be to drop a private message to him to see if he's ok with the idea and then to drop a private message to Frisco and tell him your feelings and observations.

There is a high volume demand for a Guide position, so if the selection doesn't happen, it's no loss of face or honor.

Adjuster, great post. No reason to be flamed. This is quite helpful to me and picks up on all my concerns, being in a line of work that requires this be a fully functional phone, first and foremost.

1. As a Touchdown user, I think this will be a non-issue.
2. Yes, I have 4000 contacts, but only 50 are "regular" callers, so I can deal with whatever this brings.
3. and 4. Yep, this is where I will just have to close my eyes and leap in. I will venture to guess that the 1-way call issue is not prevalent in Los Angeles (I'd be interested to know). It's Canada and other travel destinations (NY, Chi) that concern me. I never had coverage or 1-way issues with my DX or by Berries, so this will be the litmus test.
5. I have a number of BT devices, many native to the cars we have, so I am hoping for no issues here. It would bum me out if my BT ski helmet was not compatible!

6. Maybe by the time I actually BUY the damn thing when I get back on the 15th, a software update will roll out? I can dream can't I?

Again, great post. I'd thank you twice if I could.

And THIS is why the Lounge rocks (thanks also to BB for instigating). Now, I'm going offline for a bit since this is the first bluebird day since Xmas!

When I confronted them about it they tried to argue with me that they did the work. It wasn't until I forced them to open the hood and show me were the spark plugs are located that they admitted to an "error". They refunded her all her money, even for the stuff they actually did do.

I don't think it is just women, but they do try to take advantage of us a little more. I get treated the same way in electronic stores sometimes too.

Blueants website is strangely mute, level 2 tech support says, "we're working on it". It's supposed to announce the names of incoming callers, read your sms, or texts, etc. that's not happening.

just a tip, i replaced the google lady's voice with IVONA text-to-speech which is in a free beta right now on android market. i was ready to kill that lady.

There is a high volume demand for a Guide position, so if the selection doesn't happen, it's no loss of face or honor.
Point well taken. I was certainly not trying to shame anyone. Before I became active posting I read a lot of threads here with my D1 and D2 without really paying attention to names. When I saw his it struck a chord so he must have helped me or had a positive influence from way back in the ancient times (at least in Android years). Whether he was in green or not is then irrelevant to the point I wanted to make.

jbdan, Wherever or whatever it was long ago, you helped me and I want to give you a long overdue thanks!!

Those one-stop quickie oil change places are populated by con men and blood-suckers. No offense to OTD.

it's not powerful enough on the gnext to burn the speaker. i'm rooted, just followed the instructions. hit the volume up botton several times to test and set the settings. enable speaker mod, set equalizer to "good quality", increase volume level, hit volume up button a few times. i find that it increases until you get past about +15, and from +15 to +20 its about the same volume.

by the way, the dude with the 4.0.4 update said he uninstalled volume+ after getting the update b/c it fixed the volume.

i am rooted, and not responsible for anything you do to your phone
