/system/media/ with the correct permissions or /data/local/ I'm pretty sure either will work I've only changed mine twice and they were both flashable in cwm!

I know what you mean it was always in /system/media/ on the Inc !

iirc you have to have the correct permissions set in root expl to write to the shell in ICS and I can't remember what they are as I pull my hair out . Did you try /data/local/?

edit: and which one did ya get!!

The data mounts are different in 4.0.2 vs 4.0.3

Be sure you are extracting the zip and then renaming that file to bootanimation.zip

Try permissions: rw - r - r in root explorer to copy to /system/media/

For those using nfc tags, how do you have a tag open multiple apps (i.e. Car dock and Pandora when I Get in my car.)? I have nfc task launcher from the market. Thanks!

Open up NFC task launcher, create task, add new action, applications, under launch application there is drop down pick your app, then hit the + sign to the right of launch application. Do it as many times as you need to to launch the apps you want. Then hit the menu button (bottom right corner) and save that tag and name it what you want. Then hit Write Tag and follow the prompt it tells you to set it down on the tag. Voila!

So, I've noticed that Ubuntu has been mentioned a few times throughout this thread and was just curious how many of you use, or have used, Ubuntu? Are any of you like me, full converts?

I started with a 7.10 LiveCD (the compiz desktop cube was what hooked me), then I used WUBI.exe to dual boot 8.04 and XP on my old laptop, and finally ditched M$ completely when 9.04 came out. I currently run 10.04 on my desktop (which doubles as my media server) and the only other non-Android computer I own is a Chromebook (Cr-48).

In case anyone is curious about the hardware (it's my pride and joy, I built it a little over 2 years ago and I'm still upgrading it)

I've used Ubuntu and especially Kubuntu, but I've been mainly openSUSE for a lot of years. Don't like Gnome, hate Unity. I installed Ubuntu for friends, but now it's Mint. Hey it's all Linux.

Love that hardware setup, I can see you took care to get it right. 4x RAID5 indeed!

Good morning all -- been super busy at work so sorry for my absence as of late. Hopefully it slows down a bit today, miss chatting with you all.

So Facebook official app was getting on my nerves (no notifications at all) so I downloaded Friendcaster for now. Anyone have any experience with it? So far it seems really fast and well supported.

I'm all over Ubuntu 11.10. It's my daily driver...I have excepted it less than mainstream acceptance and support...though it does have the support from the dev community which I find more valuable than having Microsoft's support. Anyway, rooting my GNex was fun with Linux and I won't go back to Windows. If anyone needs help using Linux to unlock or anything, shoot me a PM.

Thanks for the reply. This is, however, exactly what I did (tried it many, many times.) Regardless of what apps I launch, it will only load ONE APP PER ONE READING OF THE TAG. In other words, if I have it set to launch App 1 and App 2, the first reading of the tag will only launch App 1. The second reading of the tag will then launch App 2. Can you confirm that you can get it to launch more than one app, per read? Maybe I've got a setting wrong somewhere.

I am rooted/unlocked, but still running stock.

The best advice I could give is hit the weights for your legs...squats, inner and outer thigh machines, kickback machines, etc. Do that once a week and work them hard that one day. Additionally, do long distance running 3 days a week. Thighs are typically the hardest for women to trim/tone and usually takes quite a while to do.

Anyone giving Codename Android ROM a shot? I just loaded up AOKP 15 so not looking for 2 ROMs in one day! Just curious if it's any faster.
(Also wondering why so many ROMs are into centering the clock? Seems just iPhonish to me)

Thanks. I'll have to work up to anything long distance. Running is my nemesis. I much prefer elliptical.

I have it bookmarked. I scan it every now and then.
I get most of my info here though so why leave.

And since you're here I will tell you I thought of you the other day. There was a Smiley face iron on in the craft store of vampire teeth and drops of blood.

Can you confirm that you can get it to launch more than one app, per read? Maybe I've got a setting wrong somewhere.

I am rooted/unlocked, but still running stock.
Which version are you using.... FREE or the PAID of NFC Task launcher? I just tried it and it works flawlessly.

Also (I have the paid version) you want to "create task" not "create profile".

Create profile does what you're saying in your reply on the paid version, don't know about the free version. It creates 2 separate reads for one tag which is way cool.

Wouldn't a spin class work well too on that area (to keep lower impact especially)?

Hmmm....dang. I'm using the paid version, and using the 'create tasks' button. Choose an app from the drop down, then click the "+", then choose a 2nd app. Frustrating!

Can you do me a favor? Would you try launching, say Astro File Manager, and Amazon Kindle, and see if those work for you? At least if we're trying the same apps, that'll rule out an incompatability maybe. Thanks!

Spin class would probably work and probably elliptical too. The reason I recommended long distance running is because of how effective it is when done right. When you modify your stride to minimize impact you use your leg muscles moreso than your knees to absorb the impact. I can tell you from experience that running will give you a better workout than will ellipticals. It just takes more effort and more time on an elliptical to get the same results as 30 minutes or so of jogging. If you can get in the neighborhood 2-3 miles in 30 minutes on a treadmill or out on a track, you will probably have burned the same calories and done your legs and core a lot better than an hour on an elliptical or a bike.

But believe me, I understand fully the problems associated with running. I don't do it on a consistent basis and I don't think anyone should, killer on the knees. But for the best/quickest results I don't think there's a substitute. Get where you want to be with running and maintain through lower impact stuff. I get shin splints something awful when I start back into my running routine...if I would just maintain after I get to where I want I would never have to endure that pain :P

If you are "creating task" it shouldn't do a second read on one tag like you said it was doing. "creating profile" does this though.

Maybe try changing the order of the tasks you create? idk.

Which tasks exactly are you using for a tag and I'll try to re-create it here and see what I get. I just tried a 2 task tag (car home and Pandora) and both opened right up, Pandora first and started streaming my music, then I hit home button and it went straight to car home so car home was opened but not showing as Pandora app was at the forefront so-to-speak

Oh I agree I'm a runner was just thinking for those that don't like to run.

imo there is no better than good ole fashion pounding the pavement (or trails which is much better for your joints)

I don't use those apps lol. But I'll try root explorer and books how bout that?

edit: it works perfect, except what happens, and this is normal as you can't open 2 apps and see them at the same time, the tag will open the apps simultaneously, BUT the one that shows on the screen is the last one in your list that you created the tag with. aka I created a task that opened books, then root explorer in that order. So I read the tag and root explorer shows, but I hit the "back" button and there is books. SO it opened both, but the last task you add will be the first to show on screen. Does this make sense?

I hate it. I just force myself to endure it. I just started back a couple of weeks ago and last week on my second day I got shin splints so bad I couldn't pull my toes off the floor. I stopped and stretched and got on a bike for about 5 minutes and they felt like new again, so I got back on the treadmill and finished my run.

Also, for the longest I have tried to tell my wife that the best way to trim your legs and tone the core is running. She never listened. She would either walk or get on the ellipticals. After a couple of years of trying that she finally decided to give it a shot this year. She's been going at it for about 3 weeks now and apparently she can tell a difference because she hasn't stopped and doesn't complain.

Thanks! I'll start by doing a little on the treadmill and work up. You won't find me in the neighborhood though. If there isn't a moving belt under me I won't run.

IF I ever stuck with it I'd like trails I'm sure. I guess I just need to decide I'm going to like it.

Honestly I toned my inner thighs and calves playing Dance Dance Revolution for a year or two. I played once-twice a week for a few hours with some friends. I gained so much stamina too.

Yup -- just most posts seem to be answered. I do try to help in the camera threads, but there seems to be a lot of yelling and jumping to conclusions about the camera sucking.

A little advice, this is how I got the wife running. Start doing intervals. Kind of the same principle of some of these couch to 5k programs. Start out walking at about a 4.0 mph pace. That automatically gets you to 2 miles in 30 minutes. This is about what cardiologists recommend for heart healthy exercises. See if you can do 1 minute at a 4.0 pace, and 1 minute at a jog (whatever is comfortable, I usually go at a 6.0 pace, so does the wife, somewhere around 5.5-6.0 is probably best). After the minute at the jog pace, go back to the 4.0 walk pace for a minute and then repeat. Then try to increase your jogging times with the walk time remaining at a minute. Once you get to about 5 minutes of a jog, start decreasing your walk time until you can jog constantly.

And remember, flashing 15 over 14 is painless and DOES NOT require a data wipe. Just a wipe cache partition and dalvik when upgrading different builds of the same ROM. You loose nothing except for 5 minutes of your day (and your custom kernel if you flashed that to your build 14, but that can be remedied by just re-flashing your custom kernel after upgrading to build 15 - just do them separately aka wipe cache partition and dalvik, flash 15, reboot and sign in to Google, reboot and wipe dalvik ONLY, then flash your kernel)

edit per Nova launcher: if you use Nova back it up !! (thx BB's)

BB - if you're simply looking to tone muscles... yoga is a great way to build strength and tone. may not have the high heart rate activity of say an elliptical that would generally try to achieve weight loss. my fiancee and i like yoga mostly cuz it's great to stretch out the back and hips. i'm sitting 85% of time during the week... but with anything it's tough to stick with it. i also like the meditative aspects of working out in general... nice to collect my thoughts at the same time.

Then what did I do wrong ? I lost my setups but no data. Is it because of using nova?

Affirmative. You can, however, backup Nova it's within the app iirc.

And I apologize I told you that you wouldn't lose anything yesterday I forgot you run Nova

Oh, forgot to add, you may find that you can go 2 minutes or even 3 minutes of jogging with only a 1 minute walk in between intervals as soon as you start. If you don't feel 1 and 1 is pushing you to start, bump it up in 30 second intervals till you find something that pushes you for the whole 30 minutes. If you find that at the 20 minute mark you can't do the same interval, back it down in 30 second chunks. And always do a 5 minute warm up, then stretch, then do your jog, then a cool down and a stretch at the end

Thanks. I do enjoy yoga, or did before I fell off the exercise wagon.

I was doing elliptical four days a week, zumba twice and yoga once. I am back to zumba and need to add everything back in.

No apologies needed. I hadn't set up much of anything at all. It was NOT a big deal. Just wanted to know for future.
