Congrats on the new apartment Stigy! We've been strongly considering moving. Problem is, since we first started renting this apartment, almost 4 years now, DC rents have gone up so much more. Also, we love our neighborhood and there isn't a ton for rent around here that is in our price range. Plus our place is SO tiny, but since we're not here much, it isn't a big deal.

It's just very frustrating living around my area besides taking public transportation and we both drive due to the traffic of the Lincoln Tunnel and just the amount of people in the area.

It takes my girlfriend 45 minutes to get to work where it should only take 15-20 minutes at the most. I have to add 30 minutes onto a commute anywhere I go that involves going near the tunnel and the roads are horrible and congestion is just getting worse. Plus all of our friends live near where we are moving now and we barely see them as it is so it'd be real awesome to start hanging out with them again and not having to worry about the 30 minute drive home after.

Default What now

Like the chief, I'm newly rooted.

Should you do a backup before downloading these updates?

Yikes. Yeah, DC traffic isn't as bad as NYC, but it's still pretty bad. Especially if you're coming from the suburbs. I've seen the rush hour traffic coming from VA and I just shake my head at those people. What a way to waste your life.
I take the bus to work, and while some nights I have to wait a bit, it's still pretty good.

I would always recommend a Nandroid backup! Every time you change ROMs (and if you don't frequently, I'd do it once a week) it's important. If you don't like the new ROM, or something is broken, it's a cinch to go back to where you started. Perhaps the best part about rooting.

Looks like Roman's posted AOKP 38 changelog

Build 38 - Releases - Releases - News
Build 38

Submitted roman, Today, 05:10 AM | Last updated Today, 05:10 AM



Change log:
  • reverted tablet nav bar button padding change (back to stock ics padding now)
  • fix SMS/BT crash bug when no msgs exist
  • reworked lockscreen music layout to be cleaner
  • fix ugly gradient on dark holo background
  • added AOKP Tips widget
  • added statusbar autohide for tablets (for apps that need full screen)
  • added support for more lockscreen targets (2-8 options, your choice)
  • cleaned up octo lockscreen layout
  • fixed certain FCs with RC related to weather
  • Mms: fixed stripping certain Polish characters
  • decreased size of custom lockscreen apps to match other icons

  • Browser: added option to close all other tabs (besides current)
  • Fixed data toggle
  • Removed requirement to reboot when toggling keyboard switcher (IME switcher) in statusbar

Ugh, alright adjuster, you got me switching back to AOKP. Downloading now.
Oh, and looks like they have an official release for my Prime. Perhaps I'll finally root it this weekend!

Default Boot Screen

At the chief's request, the new animation has TWO unicorns on boot.

My kid was rooting through my phone, and said what is "unicorn porn" which i assume is the boot animation.

The new boot animation in AOKP b38 is better than the previous ones in my opinion. The unicorn is still there, but smaller. I honestly don't mind it.

The scrollable widgets thing is amazing. They do great work!

Missed my chance to get it downloaded before work. I often have problems downloading large files through Chrome and have to switch to Firefox. Anyone know why that is?

Haha, yes it is. I will be honest, I use it even more now that I am a guide. Being able to see the first part of a post without having to click through is a very valuable tool.

Your subscribed forums will show up under favorites (I think) but your Favorite forums in the box on the left of the homepage don't sync.

Adjuster, that's the #1 reason to root: making nandroid backups of your phone's entire current state before doing ANYTHING fancy to it.

YES make a backup before flashing or upgrading a ROM.

YES make a backup at least weekly as a maintenance thing.

YES if you DON'T make backups I will come through your screen and personally scare you half to death!

I remember when Nandroid backups first came to Android - what a great time that was. I had already rooted my G1 and a month later I would be running CM V3.0 (or whatever he started at).

Nandroid v2.0 - Full NAND backup and restore tool (tried and tested!) - xda-developers

Generally what I do is this each time:

1. backup apps with TiBu (I bought pro)
2. clean old sms with sms cleaner (> 14 days => delete)
3. backup sms with sms backup/restore
4. backup nova settings
5. reboot into recovery
6. factory reset/wipe data
7. flash AOKP
8. flash gapps
9. flash inverted MMS zip
10. reboot
11. choose YES to restore phone
12. immediately after I land @ the launcher, open play store and cancel the updates
13. manually install TiBu, restore all user apps (NO system apps)
14. go through and set my ROM control and system settings up again.

Okay, so how do I do #12? I have yet to find a way to open the Play store and cancel updates/restores... #14 is a non-issue, since I just bought AOKP Backup

Play Store > Overflow Menu Button > My Apps

Then there should be a cancel button on the right side - mine usually says "Cancel 150" ish - let me know if you can't find it.

It's the same button when you have multiple updates that says "Update 4" above your list.

Well folks, I've decided to hold off on flashing b38.

It seems to me that the safest way to do it is a clean install... and while I have my apps & app data and settings & all backed up, I do NOT feel like moving ALL my pictures, ALL my videos, ALL my movies back over from the PC every time an incremental update comes out.

I guess I'll just chill here on b37 until a stable final version comes out and flash it

I guess I'll just chill here on b37 until a stable final version comes out and flash it
Chief,

You shouldn't have to move your pictures, videos, movies after a full wipe. I have never had to do this, and I have done a full wipe quite a few times.

Correct. A factory reset/data wipe in Clockword recovery does not touch the SD card partition of the internal memory. I have wiped numerous times and my pictures, videos and songs are still there every time.

Just an FYI Chief.

Also I flashed b38 dirty over b37 and haven't run into any issues.

Sorry folks, had a Gulf War moment there

That's a good thing, then...

EDIT: So to clarify, wiping data/factory reset in Clockwork ONLY wipes system data, not USER data. A factory reset in Settings wipes EVERYTHING.

So once everything is backed up, all I have to wipe is data/system/cache/Dalvik?

EDIT EDIT: Done. Dirty flashed and everything is coming up roses

I take the bus to work, and while some nights I have to wait a bit, it's still pretty good.
I don't know how those NOVA folks do it. I drive on I-95 every day, and it sometimes takes me an hour (when it should only take 30 minutes) and it drives me insane. I can't imagine REAL traffic, and I don't want to even try.

No way Jose!

I do benefit from living in the Bay Area so I have great service. Even if I didn't, I wouldn't get it. While I would love the 2GB RAM, that's the only spec that trumps Ginny Nex.

My son is ready to ditch his Nexus.

His plan:

(a) Buy the Galaxy S3 at full retail when it hits the store.
(b) Activate it on Verizon.
(c) Sell his Nexus and recoup as much money as he can.

Well, sounds good if you actually HAVE to have that phone. I can wait for the NEXT round of flagships

I just held up my son's Nexus and my Nexus together, side by side, exact same position in the house. He has -97 dbm on 4.0.2. I have -75 dbm on AOKP b38.

No, I'm not joking, but it is not a phone. It is the first Nexus tablet. Goog is going to announce it in the coming weeks. I'm locked into the GNex for another year or so, so that is my next Android device.

If you pre order the SIII through Verizon you can keep your unlimited data plan, even subsidized.

Hi all! Sorry I missed all the fun today. Drove home from visiting family in Virginia and then had to catch up on home happenings and unpack.

Morning everyone! After my long night of work I was looking forward to sleeping in as it's my day off today. Somehow, the building's fire alarm went off (not our apartment, the whole building). That sucker is LOUD. Took the fire department a good 15 min to get here and shut it off. So I guess I'll get up and start the coffee.
Wife is still sleeping like a brick though.

On the plus side, HTC just emailed me saying they fixed my Flyer and it's out to be shipped. That's about a 6 day turn around. I don't know about you, but that's some damn good customer service! Excited to get it back and see what the HC upgrade looks like. It bricked before it was officially released.

Is there a quick and easy way to see what of your posts have been thanked? I know we get the notifications for liked posts, just curious to see which ones I've been helpful in?

You could have just said unpack, and we would have given you a 24 hour pass j/k. Glad you made it home safe!

Good Morning all. Got my replacement Zagg installed last night, perfect installation, which is good. I am always afraid a piece of dust will get in between, and it will drive me nuts.
