Did I mention it was for only a month? (Aside from the fact, other than my wife, BabyBlues and Imelda Marcos who has that many shoes?)

Thanks captain, but that didn't work. I thought that was just to turn off the little annoying keyboard in the status bar. Either way, that didn't do it. I fully wiped for B37, I hope I don't have to do it again.

My wife does have a huge amount of shoes, but she generally sticks to just a handful of pairs for work and play. Only the dress up times does she have to dig through the closet.
Actually bought a very simple pair of rose gold colored (her obsession right now) sandals for the wedding which she still wears often.

Dad,

You're right it doesn't allow you to "long press to select keyboard" but it does allow you to change input on the fly by selecting "the little annoying keyboard in the status bar."

Oh, that's good to know. So did AOKP remove the option to long press to change the keyboard? Or is something borked for me?

As a follow up to The Chief patiently waiting, I ran yesterday with AOKP build 37. I shut off NFC and 4g to stop the "one way" calling issue. It fixed the issue, I didn't lose one call, so I'll probably turn on NFC next week, and turn on 4g the following. I suspect it's the 4g handoff.

Bad new is, the battery croaked by 4;30 pm and I didn't make many calls or browse the web.

On a related note, I drove a lot in territory with no cell service. I recently changed my "bars" to DB.

It appears -120 means no cell radio is available. Somewhere around -100 I do get a signal, and anything below -90 means it works as normal. Best I saw all day was -75, but it hovered around -100 much of the day.

Do these db ratings mean much?

That was removed in ICS to accommodate the new copy/paste functionality. The replacement is the "little annoying keyboard in the status bar."

You need one of those little blindfolds to block out the light. Don't laugh...they're quite useful!

It takes a lot to offend me, so that doesn't bother me. The only thing that really offends me (besides people being offended) is hatred/cruelty towards animals, children or people/groups of people.

Love that ride. Can't wait to go back to Kings Dominion this summer. The Intimidator is one beast of a ride. Check out this first drop:
Intimidator is AMAZING. Not sure if it still happens, but coming out of that first drop is so intense, your field of vision narrows to the point where you almost can't see anything. I used to work at Kings Dominion as teenager, back before they had any really good coasters. The Grizzly and ShockWave were probably the best thing they had back then.

Ha! Dawnie, my wife says she blacked out the second time we rode it! Despite having no loops, I think it's the best coaster there with the Volcano just a tab behind it. It really is an intense drop. I'm so glad the ride up is fast and smooth. I have a bit of fear of heights, but love the thrill of a great coaster.

EDIT: BTW Jmar, we did NOT get it first. The OTA is rolling out at the lightning-fast, rip-snorting speed of a and it's apparently not by geographical area but by phone ID numbers. Hopefully the Launch Day phones will be among the first to get it, though...

Chief, follow my guide in the all things root stickies. It is for rooted and stock users. I follow those steps every flash and am still using Wallet.

Unsupported device is not something to worry about. It is just disclaimer, if you will, saying that, yeah, it's cool to use this app but technically, we are not supposed to provide support since Verizon is stupid. And I have spoken with Google Wallet reps. They are helpful and supportive.

30 pairs? I would venture to say quite a few women have at least that many. I know I do. When we had a yard sale recently, I put 20 pairs in that, and still have a closet full.

Intimidator is right up there with the best of them, for sure. Cedar Point in Sandusky, OH has a few really good ones, too. KD did used to have a coaster like the one in the video - can't remember what it was called, but it didn't last long. They tore it down and put something else in its place.

I'll get anything that is unlockable / rootable.

I want something with a bigger battery & better battery life. If I were buying something now (and not counting waiting for new devices) I would grab a RAZR Maxx honestly - ICS and that big battery is mm mm good.

I personally will get a Nexus each and every time Verizon offers one, first because they are awesome (radios aside) and second since my money is the best way to communicate with VZW, I want to tell them what I want more of.

I am not inclined to make a statement like "I will only get a Nexus from here on out" but it would certainly be ideal. I like the idea of having a carrier unlocked Nexus, but the other carriers in the US don't meet the high standards of Verizon, even though it is evil

Now my experience with this phone has been stellar and my service is great, too. That said I really like where DasGoog is going with offering Nexus phones and accessories from Google Play Store. I could see my next phone bought directly from it, if I could get something comparable in price and service as I do now. But the wife loves her QWERTY keyboard and we have a lot of people we call who have Verizon service, so we never go over on minutes.

Decisions to be made at a later date.

Tired of waiting. Installed update myself. Yeah, I could have done it months ago. But it's done.

I am doing the same, already had IMM76K radios, but was still on IMM30B ROM, so now everything is together.

Alright, so I am running into problems with the IMM76K ROM from DL. It says it has root, but both TiBu and CWM are saying they don't have root access. The superuser app is in there though... Any ideas?

I looked at an apartment a few blocks from where this happened. So glad I wasn't there to see it.

Do TiBU and ROM Manager ask for root access when they boot?

Maybe try clearing the cache/data of the Superuser app?

Well it goes in, and TiBU says asking for root access, and then comes back and says sorry, can't gain root access.

Tried clearing cache/data, nothing.

Since updating. When at my apartment my service switched from 3G to 4G, constantly. Mostly 3G. It is now a constant 4G, 2 bars. At a local bar/restaurant now and have full 4G. Never really had that anywhere before. No keyboard lag. Maybe a snappier ICS?

Hi all! Safely in Virginia. Very tame ride down. Big family blow up once we got here. All is settled now though. Hope all is going well!

Slept from about 8:30 to 12:30...couldn't sleep a minute more. I tried laying there for an hour to go back to sleep but no luck. This is the last night of night shift for me though, at least for a couple of weeks. Hopefully for a few months.

Yeah, pretty standard now that you flash Google Apps package when you do a complete wipe and flash a rom.
