Hey all.
I seriously need some advice here. I am really at my wits end with this nexus issue and the constant data issues. Seems the more I want to do something, the more issues I have with my connection. The Galaxy Note (AT&T) my mom has, does a way better job then my phone does, at least at work, where I tend to play around with things. I have started to suspect that the radio in the phone sucks (it was a refurb) the network sucks (reading that link a couple pages back confirms this) and I live in a fringe area. The constant issues with the data, I am to the point I can't deal with it any more.

Verizon has got me over a barrel here, unlimited data + unlimited tethering. I got about 5 more months before my contract is us. I tried out a razr maxx and it had issues with my wifi network draining the battery while I slept.

AT&T seems like the better network in my area where I work and live, but no 4g, but HSPA is pretty good. I could by another nexus and use that, but I really don't want a second line, nor do I want to change my phone number for everyone and everything.

I really don't know what to do....

Got Lion recovery installed on the thumb drive, got the cover off, the battery unplugged, hard drive removed, and swapped with the SSD and the ram modules swapped out 2x2gig for 2x4gig for 8gig of ram. Downloading lion from apple now. Got about an hour

EDIT: Might as well update to mountain lion while I am at it. Fun fun

Perhaps I should bootcamp windows, but that means I will need to buy another copy of windows. Blech.

Sounds like being on a fringe area is really killing you.

I live in a LTE city and even in the suburbs I have perfect connectivity. I can stream or tether for hours on end. My only problem is in retail stores it really struggles - but I had this problem with my 3g Incredible too.

Best unboxing video ever.

Especially like your multitasking Pup, and the sticky tape that won't come unstuck

That was fun to watch Pup. Thanks for sharing! I do want to see the picture of the plane after he puts it together. And be sure to have him share some of his Pocky Sticks with you.

Um, crud... I may have a problem here... Never seen this before, but after I wiped everything, I click install from SD card and the screen goes black and just has the android with the spinning thing in his cover...

Maybe not. I think I pressed something. Man, I need to upgrade CWM

Flashing Liquid now.

Give Team Win Recovery a shot. I really prefer it. Easiest way to install is through Goo Manager (free app).

Yeah, I'm a TWRP convert. Not only is the UI nicer, I really like the ability to tell it to flash multiple zips in order.

I don't know, the easiest way for me to install it was the flashable version. Just Install like a RMO in CWM without wiping anything.

Yeah, TiBU can create a zip file that you flash in its own recovery session. It will immediately install TiBU to your app drawer

EDIT: Anti, have you TRIED TWRP? One test-drive and I was hooked!

We built it together, but alas, I asked him to clean up while I made dinner. He took the plane apart and put it with the rest of his Legos. Such a good boy.

You also introduced him to another rite of passage, bubble wrap. He loved that. I will put the plane back together again this weekend, apply the decals, and put it on his shelf. I'll send you a pic of it when it's done.

BTW, there was something inappropriate in that box in an envelope with my name on it.

Sounds awesome. I hope it takes off. Speeds that high for a price so low!

Considering I only use Comcast for internet (no cable), I'd love to drop them in a second.

Thanks again Captain, Evan and I still feel we made out better in the deal. The WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund telethon is coming up. That money will be going to that. I will post details here when there are links. But anyone that has ever been touched by cancer will appreciate it.

Checks all my podcasts at 6AM and auto-downloads them for me so they are ready for me on my train ride into work. Perfect for what I need and always willing to help support a developer!
I have been using this for awhile, Best one out there, love it.

So I'll be in Connecticut for the weekend for a family reunion, not sure how much I'll get to post, and the next RSRSS will probably have to wait until Monday.

Have a great weekend everyone!

BTW, if you updated to liquidsmooth JB, your SU binary has an update. Just click on the SU app and it should pop up saying there is a binary update

Morning everyone!
We're so close to the weekend I can smell it. Hoping it won't be so hot today but I think it'll be just as bad. Ugh.
Anyone looking forward to the Olympics starting?

I like how you do it, makes it easy to simply scroll down and click on things of interest. Thanks for doing this, it is a lot of fun to go through!

Yes! My wife and I love the olympics. Kids are getting into it a little too (especially swimming and gymnastics)
