Yeah that's the problem with all the new phones. They're all big. But I think she would get used to the size real quick. Wife has a Bionic and she didn't take too long to get used to it.

Happy Memorial Day weekend, everybody!

Well, to the 2 or 3 of us who are actually still in here

EDIT: Oh BTW: if you're planning some wings and beer this weekend, this is NOT the way to do it:

Looking for a good documentary?

A documentary on Michael Ruppert, a police officer turned independent reporter who predicted the current financial crisis in his self-published newsletter, From the Wilderness. With discussion of many other topics.

I finally took the plunge.

In a last ditch effort, to give my Nexus one more shot, I flashed a rom. Liquid 1.4

You know, folks, I am reading ALL OVER the media that Verizon is pushing out 4.0.4... yet NOTHING.

Anyone know what the hold-up is THIS time?

EDIT: Apparently Verizon is pushing SOMETHING, because this web page is up:

http://support.verizonwireless.com/pdf/system_update/samsung_galaxy_nexus.pdf

Is this the December update? Or something new? I thought the new update was iMM76

EDIT EDIT: Yep, this page is WAY obsolete. It's the December update. Back to being

Glad to hear. It's the ROM I'm running and find it a little snappier than AOKP, but they're both really smooth. They don't have the constant update and not AS much goodies as AOKP, but it's fine for me.

Morning everyone! Looks like ya'll are enjoying your holiday weekend since it's so quiet in here. We were downtown yesterday and it was tourist city.

Chief, why don't you do it the manual way?
Download: Galaxy Nexus 4.0.4 Build IMM76K [Instructions Added] – Droid Life
This is what I did for my wife's unrooted Droid (well, simply applying an update.zip so no temp. root). I wouldn't call it cheating, much .

I know I'm the only one up early on a Sunday, but if anyone hasn't caught any of Paul Miller's articles in his series about giving up the internet for a year, his latest is a really great read:
Offline: Ignorance | The Verge

It's funny because I'm all too ready to whip out the Nexus while we're out to answer some trivial question with a simple Google search. What do you all think, is this a good thing to be constantly connected to a vast array of information (or false), or should we just not care sometimes?

Hi guys and dolls! I hope everyone is good! I have been so busy at work (month end) and at home. Weekends are starting to get busy with dates, hanging out with my friends and babysitting. I just want to drop in and say hi!

Going to BB to get a hard drive.

Well first bit of rain from Beryl just passed over my house, it is super muggy outside too. Oh well, got the Wii up and running, so that should keep the kids occupied.

Yikes, sorry for you.
Interestingly enough, my Nexus was probably the hardest Android to root. I hope you can at least reap the benefits of the new radios soon though.

Yeah, I followed the instructions and booted into Fastboot... but it's erroring out because the bootloader's still locked.

And to unlock the bootloader I have to wipe the whole phone... which is something I am not prepared to do at the moment...

Back to Verizon rants I guess:

I called *611 and let tech support HAVE IT, asking them WHY Google has had the iMM76 OTA update on their website for a friggin' WEEK and Verizon hasn't pushed it out yet!

He gave me the standard hemming and hawing about making sure it's just right, test devices, blah blah blah.

I'll be surprised if they EVER release it

EDIT: Okay folks, I read THIS at xda:

"PLEASE NOTE: My apologies for the flip-flopping. It appears Step 4, the booting into CWM Recovery, will NOT work if your bootloader is locked after all. You will first need to unlock your bootloader to use this upgrade method. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE BACKUP YOUR ENTIRE PHONE BEFORE PROCEEDING. Unlocking the bootloader wipes ALL data on your phone and it is NOT recoverable."

How the HECK do I back up the entire phone without doing a nandroid? I can't do a nandroid unless the bootloader's unlocked! WTH

Search the general Gnex forum at XDA (it may even be a sticky) but there is a method to backup using your phone using your computer with a locked boot loader.

Morning everyone and happy Memorial Day! Great time to celebrate and honor those fallen soldiers and those still serving.
If you have a few minutes kicking around today, check out this episode of A Day in The Life Of featuring John Fetterman. He's quite the inspiration:

Yeah I found it HERE:

[GUIDE] Full Phone Backup without Unlock or Root - xda-developers

I'm tech geeky but not THAT tech geeky! ADB is some scary territory for me, never having used it. And - quite frankly - I'm very hesitant to mess around with something of which I have virtually no knowledge... something that could screw the pooch on my phone in one big hurry.

Adb is quite involved, but it is the method I used to unlock my bootloader. The tutorials are fantastic in the all things root section.

I knew nothing of ADB before I unlocked and rooted this phone. Managed to make it through the process though. I know they give a step-by-step how to, but I wish they would have given a little more detail in some of the steps.

When I did a system restore of my laptop earlier this year I forgot to save everything for unlocking and rooting. So when Verizon finally decides to push out this update(if ever) I'm just going to do it from the phone and let it unroot and I'll just do it again.

Why don't you just grab one of the stock ROMs based on the release, and do it that way? Gives you basically the same thing. Download the rom to your phone, and boot into recovery mode, flash the rom, and viola, stock 4.0.4 without unrooting, and all from the phone.

Just read, read, and read again. I rooted my first 3 phones with ADB, you'll be just fine.

I guess I'm just really, really confused and really, really tired.






I have read how-to after how-to... but nothing I have read answers my primary question:

Is there a way to fully backup my phone's data BEFORE I root or unlock the bootloader? I want to backup, unlock (hence wipe), root, and restore the backup. THEN I'll get around to flashing the 4.0.4 update... or a stock ROM. Haven't really researched those yet, so I can't speak to that at all ATM.

Ketchup, mustard, cheese and onions. I get jalapenos sometimes. Normally you get 2/$.99, but with your Sheetz card you get 3/$.99.

The beer is pretty good too

That sounds awesome, and is a fantastic deal. I need to find the closest Sheetz to me, lol.

Hi Guys,

Been busy building the system below and she is up and running. Stopped in to see the action is still alive here.

I have some catching up to do still being on AOKP B34 & LK 3.3.0... But its so stable and awesome on battery a Nanny-D will be made.

I build my last system in 2008 so its time. She still puts most to shame but I love the cutting edge. I got the Motherboard with the WiFi & Bluetooth card so the nexus can scream back at it.

CPU = Intel Ivy Bridge 3770K
Mother Board = Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H WiFi
RAM = SAMSUNG 16GB 4x4 DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 Model MV-3V4G3/US
HDD's = 2ea in RAID1 - WD Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s
GPU = SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6850
PSU = CORSAIR Professional Series HX750
Cooling = XSPC Rasa 750 RS240 Liquid Kit
Case = Rosewill BLACKHAWK Gaming ATX Mid Tower
Displays = Dual Samsung 215TW S-PVA
OS = Windows 7 Professional x64
Lots of External Storage

In re: Build 37 - Releases - Releases - News, what is the difference between "toro" and "toroplus"?

EDIT: Ah, got it, never mind.

EDIT2: Perhaps a silly question, but the Build 37 feature list appears to indicate that AOKP is built on 4.0.3 - is this accurate? I thought it used 4.0.4.

Okay, folks:

(1) What if I ROOT, install CWM, make a nandroid backup, THEN unlock (wipe), THEN root again, and restore the backup? Will that accomplish what I'm trying to do?

(2) Does anyone have experience with Wug's Galaxy Nexus Root Toolkit? Look s good to me!

(3) I hope everyone had a GREAT weekend!

Question 1: yes, but before you unlock, transfer sdcard contents including Nandroid, then proceed.

Question 2: I unlocked using command line but many a successful unlock have occurred that way!

Hope you all had a good weekend y'all!

Hey Chief, I used Wugs when the first leaked 4.04 appeared, no issues at all. I then used Wugs program a couple of weeks ago to flash the new radios, (downloaded from link in this thread) again, very easy. Only issue is unless he updated, it's build IMM30B and the older radios. It's not the same build as the most recent 4.04, however I don't know what is different.

Morning all! Well the serious rain held off until today, so we ended up having a decent holiday weekend, even grilled burgers last night. Hope everyone else had the same!

Morning Anti! We never got any rain here but I wish we did. It's still hot as hell here. Had a very busy day at the restaurant yesterday. Thought I was going to have to go in for a couple hours today (my day off), but I don't!
Perhaps I'll see if there's any ROMing to do today, otherwise I'll just make it a relaxing one in plenty of AC.
