Galaxy Nexus Watering Hole

    Well, I am sitting here (procrastinating (its what this introvert does)) getting ready to backup a few documents that I have on my 13" macbook pro then to gather the information and tools I need to restore this puppy to factory settings. Its getting a new home. :flybye:

    The 13" is just not enough for me. My desktop is in the way and having issues so I decided to change things up and get the computer I should have got in the first place. But, this little 13" MBP was just an experiment. It has almost replaced my desktop, but I need more power for some things like photo and HD video editing. So I pulled the trigger on the 13" bigger brother. The 15" base model MBP. I decided the high end 15" was overkill and I could use the 400 bucks on a new external drive and some ram which will help with the photo and video editing.

    This little 13" MBP I am typing on now, well, Im going to give it to my mom for mothers day :)

    The 15" MBP will likely, for the most part, replace my desktop. 2.2ghz vs 2.8 I am running now. 600mhz difference and a newer CPU. I may dual boot with windows 7 and heck, I may even be able to use the 64 bit version.

    I think I will use an external firewire dock and stash most of my data on those and leave the internal drive for the programs and OS.

    I've been around 5 or 6 times ranging from age 10 to 21, and it's awesome every time. Great place for kids and adults alike.

    Nope, no worries. Go for it. I will be honest, I did go back to 3G for most of the afternoon, but it's still better than it was.

    Been awhile since I have even tinkered with this stuff. In rom manager, do I install from SD card from the main menu or reboot into recover or?

    Evening everyone!
    I've been running really well on Liquid 1.35. Haven't had too many problems with Rhapsody which was my main sticking point before. Couple tweaks I miss from AOKP but I'll stick with this for a bit.

    Come on feel the noise...

    I actually sat and had lunch with them almost 20 years ago.:eek: Kind of a weird run in. They were already one and done and stopped at an inn in PA I was working at. They were playing a county fair in the area, their tour bus placard said No1UKnow.

    Beat this destructive daughter story:

    About 15 years ago I had a white Honda Civic with a dented front bumper. I ordered a new bumper online and it came in... flat black plastic.

    I took my time and carefully painted the bumper white. Let it dry. Did it again. It took days. Daughter "helped" me install it by watching and handing me the right screwdriver when I needed it.

    I went inside to get a couple of cold drinks for us. BIG MISTAKE.

    When I came back out, the new front bumper was still in place, BUT: her name was proudly and prominently etched into the bumper, all the way across it.

    I was ballistic... and she cried because I wasn't "proud" of her work. I couldn't STAY mad, of course. I hugged her and reassured her that she had done a great job spelling her name correctly. And her name rode with me every day until I sold the car years later... and I sold it with her name still on it.

    If I find a rom I dig now, can I just install over the new radios? Or will I need to re-install them?

    Install just as you normally would. The radios won't change unless you change them.

    Okay :)

    I think I found a rom I may want to try, so, I am going to need someone to help me out with this a bit.

    The rom is LiquidSmooth v1.35

    Now, obviously I need to back things up and I got titanium backup pro. So, do I need to:

    a) Backup all user apps
    b) Backup all system Data
    c) Backup all apps + system data

    Then I know I need to flash the rom after this, and I guess its the same as the radio flash, just open up rom manager and chose install from SD card

    then after it installs the rom, I go back into titanium and restore a, b, or c

    TiBu don't ever do system data. Its a surefire way to get frustrated. I always backup user apps and data. Some people just do the apps. You have to see which works best for you. I have a schedule set in TiBu that does my apps, then any new apps and another for any changes I've made to any. I only tell you those so you have am idea of what it can do. Once Liquid is flashed and up then you can go into TiBu and restore user apps and data or just user apps. Some people occasionally have problems restoring data. I haven't run into that yet.
