I left Sourcery when 4.2 dropped. Going back to Sourcery was a compromise...or so I thought. That ROM always packed a ton of features but performance and battery life were not great.

It's too early to say how battery life is because I typically judge that with standby time (and haven't really put my phone down for long in the past few days). Performance is better on this ROM than on any other ROM I have used. Running at 1.2 GHz and this thing is flying. I was expecting lag to an extent and haven't seen it. Even when running low on RAM, the phone handles new task with ease. I just picked up my phone and everything was fluid...just to see that I had 78 MB free. The stock Sourcery kernel is pretty bad ass in that regard.

Eagle told me he changed the governor in his kernel or something like that. I totally agree. This is like a reborn rom. It flies even with the thousands of options.

As for food trucks here in Austin.. They are on the list to get to. Apparently there are more than 30 registered with the city... Have yet to find them, but guessing they are closer to downtown and the college/capitol buildings.... Looking forward to it!
At least in DC, nearly all the food trucks (and we have a ton now!) are on Twitter to let you know where they are. We also have an up to date map too.

I was wondering about that too. (I have not gotten the tweet bug yet... Lol) but back in Santa Barbara, the 8 or so trucks used FB to get out the word... Going to have to find whatever resource is here in Austin! Thanks for the suggestion.
Hope everyone had a great weekend. Ours was fun, and now on to a new week. Got stressed last night thinking about this work week, and did not sleep well. But maybe I will be tired enough tonight to sleep better.
Also just a side joke on my rom... Still using Jelly Belly... Did the rounds last week and this weekend. Trying to see if I can use the JB sourcery or AOKP or mmuzzys rom to get better life? Nope, back to Jelly Belly this morning. For some reason I cannot get a full days use out of another rom. I usually let a Rom settle as close to a clean install that I can, then let it ride for 2 days, try a different kernal, let it ride for 2 days... But for whatever reason, Jelly Belly shows a minimum of 4-6 hours better life on the 2nd day and beyond than any other rom. And considering my days are usually 16 hour days... Its nice not to have to charge it at all during the day, with the same normal usage. So, still loving Jelly Belly with Lean Kernal exps and interactivex. Happy Monday all!

I can appreciate that. I was running Jelly Belly as well and enjoyed it... Until I got bored with the lack of options. What bugged me about that ROM was that I would have dramatic lag anytime one or more apps would update from the play store. I tried different kernels but nothing helped. Since switching, that problem has vanished. It's all about finding what works for you individually. But I'll be testing battery life today. 3% drain per hour is the benchmark with limited use

It would be nice if HTC would pick one "flagship" phone and stick with it instead of changing it every year.

It always worked and ran fine, but battery life was always terrible. I could get barely 4 hours of screen time on my 3800 mah battery no matter the kernel, but on Eclipse with LK, I tend to get anywhere from 5.5 to 6.5 hours depending on where I am most of the day(signal). Yes, I'm a heavy user on work days because I'm not entitled to my own computer as an adjunct so I kill time when needed on my phone.

I have never received novocaine for cavity work. Today was the first time. HUGE difference. Now I understand the Bill Cosby bit about his bottom lip being on the floor.

This is a great article with an 8 minute video about arcades. I remember popping quarter after quarter in machines as a kid. It was mostly money from all the grass cutting jobs I had. Yeah, I guess I could have saved that money? Nah! PLAY GAMES!

I fondly remember the arcade as well.

In my area, we had several. All kinds of video games. Not just fighting and war related, either. I remember when arcades changed. Games became more complex, far better graphics and the costs went to a dollar a play. They lost patrons.

Most arcades towards the end had very few old games, just those huge and costly ones.

One arcade I fondly recall had those big games, but it also had the mechanical games I love. Just relays, switches and not one LED. All mechanical and no video screen. He also sold food and he priced it so the change was always in quarters rather than something like 18 or 23 cents. His theory was, why let kids leave with pennies and nickles? Give the patron a quarter and he will spend it in the arcade.

I do miss the arcades.

And scary pool halls. Few here likely remember when pool halls were dirty and filled with hustlers and rough regulars who would school you big time if you dared to play a game for money thinking you had a chance of winning.

Posted in the sprint forum, but I guess I'm officially allowed to post here as well.

I buy/sell used phones in my free time as sort of a hobby, and picked up a gnex today. Its supposedly got some software quirks so I'll get plenty of time to root/ROM and most likely activate it for a few days before it before it finds a new home.

When I was a teenager, I used to play a lot of street sports. I was playing street hockey and got a backswing stick in my face that broke my two front teeth. I needed root canals. That was over 40 years ago.

I don't like these crowns anymore because my gums have receded to expose the original teeth so it looks like there is a black line above my upper two front teeth. I hate it and have had that for decades. I'm glad to be able to clean that look up for good.

I may only need an implant and a new crown or two new implants. Likely only one implant. I am actually looking forward to this. I put it off for years because I was paying for college for my daughter.

Ouch! Same deal here, except I fell on a school bus and hit that omnipresent metal bar with my two front teeth. 2 root canals, 2 crowns. Then 20 years later, same story as you. 2 new crowns to sit "higher" and gum surgery to lower the gums a bit. Second-go-around wasn't painful as much as tedious.

Good luck! I'm sure it will turn out fine.

Have you though about adding some vampire fangs?

It was a juicy rumor. Hope it turns out true and the phone is a beast.

What do you think about the bit where big red was going to charge 15 dollars a month as penalty for unlocking the bootloader?

Yeah, but that for their version that you get on contract. Since it will be available on the play store, according to the rumor, that version should be unlockable for free.

Big red never ceases to amaze me how they screw over the consumers.


I know its just a rumor, but I honestly wouldn't be surprised

The worst part is that it doesn't surprise me either. I've wised up to this and can't wait to leave, unlimited be damned. If only breaking my contact and finding two nexus 4s wasn't so expensive and hard to do.

Good luck dread!

I am as cynical as most when it comes to Verizon, but I'm finding it hard to believe they would be that ridiculous.

Yeah, I don't buy any of that about the Moto X going to Verizon. Can't see them doing it. Maybe, if it was only sold for a $600+ price tag, but even still....

I dunno, Moto is VZW's bread and butter. Plus the DL article said bloatware is still allowed. I don't see Verizon turning it down.

Go get 'em Dread! FRY 'EM! Who cares they're just fighting a parking ticket...



Moto X looks like a dream phone starting to take shape, same way the "Nexus Prime" did 2 years ago. Never thought I'd even SEE an unlocked Moto phone on Verizon; that they're going to charge a monthly premium for the unlocked version? Isn't that some sort of FCC violation?

Ha, I'm just gonna get out of it. With the crimes I've had on me, it's generally enough to be excused.

Morning all...
Have to agree on the ridiculousness of the $15/mo from VZW... But I read it as... If VZW unlocks it for you, there will be a $15/mo charge...

Anyways... Hope everyone is doing okay. Have fun on vacation/jury duty Dread... And Steven... Ouch. Hope it goes well and quickly for you!

Have a great day all!

I don't know if I trust a carrier to unlock my phone... Seems like a brick waiting to happen! Don't worry Verizon...just don't encrypt the bootloader and I'll unlock it myself

My guess is that there will be a tool, similar to the htc dev or asus unlocker apk, that has the encryption passcode built into it, and after you consent, sends information about your device back to a server. Could be the serial number, the esn, maybe both. Since Verizon already knows your esn, all they have to do is match up your active esn with the one in their database and presto, they add the charge.

The thing that gets me is that their going to sell it for 300 on contract, but yet it's going to be available on google play at roughly nexus pricing, and if you buy it from google play, you can unlock it without the charge? Seems contradictory to me.

I agree, and if this comes out in July, like the rumor predicts, that will be right around the time us launch nexus users' upgrade becomes available (Aug 15th). Maybe it's time for another epic pre-release thread

Made it through the first round. Ugh, I'm already bored.

Edit: called on the second round. Bah, let's get this over with.

Well the google play one probably won't have the radios to work on VZW. So it will be a different phone which only works on Verizon.
