We are in the middle of a dip in a winding Road next to a lake so all service is weak in the house except on the 3rd floor. I get a bar of 4g up there but haven't checked the real stats yet.

mostly I'm just confused why it dropped by -10 from one day to the next in the exact same spot.
VZ did have all those issues today (or this morn) maybe they are still working on it. Idk much about this, but don't they have signal boosters/repeaters that you can install in your home? I'm sure they cost a lot!

NASA is predicting a major solar flame in 2012. Bigger than the one that knocked out Canada's power grid in 1989.

^^^^ So that means we all will be going back to 1x service in 2012.

Sounds like lots of us picked the wrong time to upgrade to 4G. XP

Well, so far I have to say that I'm quite happy with the extended battery. I installed it yesterday, charged it up, cleared battery stats, and then let it run down all night. I could practically see the battery gauge recalibrating. After it got below 10%, it actually started climbing again; I guess the phone was figuring our that there was more juice left than it thought. It was actually a bit of a challenge to get it discharged all the way in time to recharge for an evening out tonight.

Today it dropped 15% in about five hours. Extrapolating, that would be 30 hours for the whole charge. I can live with that.

So I installed my extended battery...turned it off after the swap again and now it's in Odin? Did I see something about that happening earlier today? I'm not unlocked or rooted.


Found the post! Restarting.

This way, if issues arise, I know most likely it is not something I did prior to the flash, and more likely something with the ROM/kernel/CWM version/etc...
thanks jbdan. i did that and reinstalled the rom. i noticed that the original gmail app worked perfectly but when i had used my titanium backup to restore all my apps, the gmail app stopped syncing properly. i just didn't restore the gmail app and now everything is working, as far as i can tell.

Yup. Did you power on with your thumb on the power button and your middle or ring finger wrapped around the phone?

Pull the battery and then put it in. You'll be ok.

yehah!

The dreaded Titanium. I love it couldn't live with out it (well yeah I could actually), but man that app has caused more heartache during restores.

Be careful and only restore the app... never data.

Also, I do not backup google apps as I can get those on market or by flashing certain gapps packages. So maps, gmail, streetview, voice, googs+, etc... all google apps I never backup.

I don't mind the placement in theory, it's just that the buttons seem extra sensitive.

Don't really like the other flavored ones.

I miss Romans build 9 with his customizations are you still running that bright?

But I am now going to bed. Enjoy your gummy.

Just wanted to share some battery stat info...
I have the GSM Nexus with stock android and battery. I the only battery related app I use is Battery Gauge Widget (so I have battery % displayed in notification bar).

Battery died just after 14hrs 45mins
Screen on time just over 4hrs 15mins
Android OS had a wake time over 8hrs (don't remember the CPU time)

Even though I got less than 15hrs on a charge I feel like the 4+hrs I had the screen on is pretty impressive. I'm still in the "honeymoon phase" and think I'll have no problem making it thru a day once my usage calms down a little...

yeah i am. it's the only one i've tried so far but i really like it. i thought i'd give it a couple days and then try another one, either birdman's or gummy. but you are right, the customizations in roman's build are really nice.

Very impressive screen on time indeed. Must be GSM efficiency over CDMA I'm guessing

That is what I like his customizations. Right up my alley! Especially since they are mostly optional, it gives you the choice

I will! I just flashed franco's kernel on top of gummy I've heard and read it is really nice. The stock kernel for gummy has a little jerkiness when scrolling through the app drawer swiftly. I've had this on almost every single 4.0.3 rom.....

Morning guys. I have some time before work to flash Pete's latest nightly. I love stock so it should be great and I've only heard good things about his new ROMs.
So I flipped out yesterday when I had NO data for much of the day. I spent the bus ride to work doing everything I could: reboots, AP mode toggle, deleted a couple root apps, restored a nandroid and finally a battery pull. None worked. Didn't even occur to me it was an outage. Ah well.
Anywho, I had a hell of a time getting the back plate back on. I had to get some help from someone at work. Does anyone have any tips for putting it on easily? I hope I don't have to do many more battery pulls, but since I'm gonna start flashing, it's pretty inevitable.

Anywho, I had a hell of a time getting the back plate back on. I had to get some help from someone at work. Does anyone have any tips for putting it on easily? I hope I don't have to do many more battery pulls, but since I'm gonna start flashing, it's pretty inevitable.

I slide the bottom of the plate in and work my way up the sides, making sure everything is seated properly and snapped in

That's what we ended up doing. I think in my impatient attempts I slightly bent the little tabs that go into the bottom so it wasn't sealing properly. Guess I'll have to be a bit more gentle going forward (wonder how much replacement backs are?)

Yeah, this is the way I do it too. Seems to make the most sense.

Default Swype on the GN

Someone at XDA created a Swype to work on the GN. I'm loving this keyboard again.

It's funny, I've been a die hard SwiftKey fan since it came out. But, the stock ICS one has actually converted me!
A lot of it is that the keys are bigger than SK
Never been a huge Swype fan, too many mistakes for me. I do have SlideIt installed (got it for $.99). Haven't tried it yet though.

Default Signal Issue

Had a friend call last night, was sitting in my basement looking at a signal bouncing between -110 and -120 dbm with 99 asu and zero bars..........

Talked for 14 minutes, crisp clear sound for whatever it's worth, still have never been unable to send a txt either, even with zero bars.

But data connectivity is far, FAR weaker than the other phones in my house, and both my Nexus ands my son's Thunderbolt are set to CDMA only (no 4G here yet)

Thank God for Wifi!!!!!!!!!

Dear god, is there another 4G outage?!?!?!
Sitting here when both of us (GN, Bionic) get at least 2-3 bars of 4G and both are 3G only.
What the hell Verizon!

Why I love this phone: I had 2 pics on my gallery screen called auto upload that I couldnt clear...I pressed the mic icon on the google bar and asked how to clear them. BINGO! It sends me right to the info I needed. It doesnt get any easier than that.

I haven't installed Swiftkey either. I only miss the number pad in it. Otherwise I'm using the ICS keyboard

I use the stock ICS keyboard as well. Bought Swiftkey on sale thinking I would use it and loved it on the OG Droid, but I have no reason to switch with the ICS keyboard.

How did you remove your search bar? I assume you flashed a ROM?

No. Its in the settings somewhere. I can't remember where though. Its dead space now but I make wallpaper to fill the space.

Doesn't the Nova Launcher (ICS only) allow you to remove it from certain homescreens?

Hmmm. I guess if it's dead space anyway it doesn't really matter to me.

Hey everyone! Coming to my last day in Florida. 4G has been a pretty big disappointment, supposed to have blanket coverage here but really intermittant. I was pretty annoyed with the article stating our signal issues were all in our head. Anyone know if those leaked radios are helping?

I use swiftkey mainly because the typing lag in landscape is very annoying with the stock keyboard, and swiftkey doesn't have that problem.

Nova Launcher allows you to remove the search bar and place it on any of the 5 home screens.


VZW had 4g/3g issues with the network yesterday may still be having them today
