Another New Owner...General

    I was going to wait until my OV dies before upgrading to a 4G-LTE phone, but for $19, I couldn't resist... This BF deal is less than the used OV I'd gotten as a spare for $20 over the summer! Thus, I picked up a new Awe at Target late this afternoon--with specs supposedly better than the OV in most every aspect. BTW, there are still plenty left on the shelves...

    Anyway, some tidbits I've found so far:

    FYI... hopefully, there'll be some custom recovery and ROM developments as more users take advantage of this BF deal. :)

    Picked one these up thursday eve at Target. This phone is a monster compared to the OPV. FYI this phone has a dual core processor but out of the box only 1 core is activated. Once you get it rooted you can download "Adroid tuner free" and fire up the 2nd core. Do that and this little gem is $20 worth of AWEsome.

    As stated in the OP: Stock ROM Download (version N800V1.0.0B04)

    Flashing this will return the phone to completely stock (i.e., bootloader, recovery, data, system, etc.) like it was new out-of-the-box from the store. If one has already installed the OTA update (version N800V1.0.0B05), then this downloaded version is of limited uses until we have a custom recovery that works for the phone. Even though the download is already superseded, this downloaded 'update.zip' file still offers some insights into the stock ROM build. Personally, I downloaded and kept a backup copy of this 0B04 'update.zip' file just in case for future uses if I ever need to return the phone back to stock...

    The flashing instructions provided directions to booting into the phone's stock recovery--which in turn provided an insight to the stock recovery's functional capabilities (i.e., wiping cache, wiping data/factory reset, verifying MD5 of update, installing update from SDcard, installing update from cache, and installing update from ADB.) Albeit limited for now, but they can be utilized by users until a custom recovery can be ported for the Awe. FYI...

    I'll just put this here...but.....

    ..has anyone figured out a way to get good pictures from this camera? It's the only shortcoming on an otherwise fantastic value. I assumed my original Evo would take better pics, but even my Elite blows this away on image quality.

    All these phones have 5 mp cameras, but there is still a big difference in quality. Give it as much light as you can and they turn out pretty good just not great.

    I use a document submission app to send business docs to my home office. Had difficulty with it until I went into the camera settings>image quality and increased the contrast and sharpness to 100%. I have no idea how much this might help with photos tho, and you do have to adjust the settings every time you take a pic.

    Yes indeed turn up the contrast, saturation, (not too much,) the exposure, and sharpness. I also set the ISO to the lowest setting which is 100. Gotta hold it steady though. No flash. Took a few decent pics this way.
    play around with it...it'll take some decent pics once you get used to the settings.
    too bad it wont save the setting though. The only thing it saves is the size. Mine is still showing at 3 when I first set it up, was at 5mp prior.

    weird how the front camera and camcorder are better than the rear. rear camcorder/camera at 720p, frame-drops like a mofo. front camcorder and camera, crystal clear and no frame-drop :-/ shoulda switched 'em

    does the update.zip automatically wipe the sd card, i mean the built in one,?

    tli Well-Known Member

    Flashing the 'update.zip' will wipe the data partition, but will not affect the external uSDcard.
