That sucks!

Assuming this is the link for that malware site (androidresearchapp.info). Install Ad-away version 2.8 and run the app and reboot. Then open your /system/etc/hosts file and add the following line then reboot again...

127.0.0.1 androidresearchapp.info

If your lucky, that malware site should be blocked from now on. Other than that I got nothing else for ya lol.

Thx for the suggestions GT.
However after doing what you and others suggested i was still getting the same issues going to that website.
The worse part about this was, it would use copious amount of data all day long, and drain my battery in 3-4 hrs.

I thru every program at this problem thinking it was a virus or maleware.

So i thought i would report back just incase someone else is searching for a fix.
It turned out to be an app on my phone "Beautiful Widgets". The funny thing was i had this installed for a few months prior to the problems.
I want to be politically correct in saying that this version i had was "license challenged"

So it was removed and went back to the stock translucent weather & clock app from the rom, and all is well again with the world.

Thx again,
Till next catastrophe......

This is the first ROM I ever installed, and GameTheory, it's a great one. Thanks for the massive amount of work that must go into it. Installation was a breeze, once I got the CWM figured out, which truly was a pain on this phone.

Just wanted to say thanks and give quick feedback on one minor issue I encountered. If you know how to fix it, I'd love to know.

When I use the built in Calendar and in the menu select "Calendars to Display", the screen that shows me all available calendars has no text. I assume the text color is the same as the background color. Not a big deal but I attached a screenshot so you can see what I'm talking about.

Cheers and thanks again!

EDIT: Well, I guess I have to wait until the anti-spam thing for new users is lifted, sorry. Perhaps you already know what I am talking about and it has been addressed in this thread, let me read through.

Already done. In the meantime, I've disabled the stock calendar app.

I've settled on Cal for now.

On a side note, my wife's phone is JellyBean and I really like that her's has a slider in the notification window just below the toggle buttons for WiFi, Sound, Airplane Mode etc, to adjust the brightness. Really helpful for phones like this that do not have a light sensor. Any way that could easily be included? I have yet to find a solution in the PlayStore I like and you can't mod that with UOT as far as I can tell.

Any suggestions?

First I want to say thanks for this ROM... very pleased overall.

I just need some advice about tethering and whats working for you. The stock HotSpot is hit and miss even with a very strong 4G signal. Sometimes I can connect and it will work great and for no reason that I know of it will either drop the computer or lose internet connection (yes I had 4G coverage).

I tried the Wifi Tether Treve mod (and a few other versions) that worked great on my previous phones (HTC Evo, Samsung Galaxy Victory - Virgin Mobile): it would connect as unsecured connection but still wasn't very consistent.

PDANet/FoxFi app didn't work either... so I am open to suggestion - what am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance!

Nah never did. Purple wasn't too popular. Here are all the themes and everything else I did for the spirit which are scattered about in this forum. You can bookmark that page if you like.

Haven't had much time to mess with phones lately, been really busy.

That's cool you got everything for the spirit on a single webpage, thanks for the link! And I can't believe grape/purple didn't get that much love, wtf is with that...? Tell you what though if you ever get around to that I'll rock the shit out of it. I'd just use the grape theme for katana but some stuff doesn't take with it. Hopefully you'll get a chance to get around to putting it together :wink, wink: lol.

i think we read that gt had a f6 he was testing and that threw us off with the rim.however i found something interesting.i came close to it flashing right for me by installing the 12b kernal on the f6.i prolly was impatient and turned it off early but it actually looked like it was trying to install with a blank screen and the lights changing color

Default How to get email to work for Outlook.com

I couldn't get the android email app to add my @msn.com email. After some poking around I found this and it worked. I used the live.com as listed,even though it's an @msn.com email.

Hope this helps


I figured out the pop3 settings as well.
I did this on my android phone but I think it should anywhere.

Incoming settings:
username: emailaddress @ outlook . com
password: your password
pop3 server: pop3.live.com
port: 995
security type: SSL/TLS
Delete email from server: never

Outgoing Settings:
SMTP Server: smtp.live.com
Port: 587
Security Type: STARTTLS
Require Sign-in: YES
Username: same as username above
Password: same as above

Just root your phone then install clockworkmod recovery and then install whatever rom you want. It's that simple. No need to mess with the bootloader.
