Morning all, back after another busy weekend.
Congrats on the new apartment Stigy! We've been strongly considering moving. Problem is, since we first started renting this apartment, almost 4 years now, DC rents have gone up so much more. Also, we love our neighborhood and there isn't a ton for rent around here that is in our price range. Plus our place is SO tiny, but since we're not here much, it isn't a big deal.
It's just very frustrating living around my area besides taking public transportation and we both drive due to the traffic of the Lincoln Tunnel and just the amount of people in the area.
It takes my girlfriend 45 minutes to get to work where it should only take 15-20 minutes at the most. I have to add 30 minutes onto a commute anywhere I go that involves going near the tunnel and the roads are horrible and congestion is just getting worse. Plus all of our friends live near where we are moving now and we barely see them as it is so it'd be real awesome to start hanging out with them again and not having to worry about the 30 minute drive home after.
Like the chief, I'm newly rooted.
Should you do a backup before downloading these updates?
Yikes. Yeah, DC traffic isn't as bad as NYC, but it's still pretty bad. Especially if you're coming from the suburbs. I've seen the rush hour traffic coming from VA and I just shake my head at those people. What a way to waste your life.
I take the bus to work, and while some nights I have to wait a bit, it's still pretty good.
I would always recommend a Nandroid backup! Every time you change ROMs (and if you don't frequently, I'd do it once a week) it's important. If you don't like the new ROM, or something is broken, it's a cinch to go back to where you started. Perhaps the best part about rooting.

Congrats on the apartment Stig! Hope everyone had a good weekend! Glad to be back among the living this week, lol
Ugh, alright adjuster, you got me switching back to AOKP. Downloading now.
Oh, and looks like they have an official release for my Prime. Perhaps I'll finally root it this weekend!
New AOKP boot animation huh? Anyone with b38 feel like describing it?
At the chief's request, the new animation has TWO unicorns on boot.
My kid was rooting through my phone, and said what is "unicorn porn" which i assume is the boot animation.
^ Bahahaaha! I'm still trying to DL B38, taking forever. Ready to flash and see what this "unicorn porn" is all about.
So... who's going to get the 15,000th post?
Snap, didn't realize we were getting so close. Well, I'm off to work in a few so it won't be me. To the best man (or BB/Dawnierae)!
Whoah, now I have to pay attention so I don't steal BB's spotlight.
The new boot animation in AOKP b38 is better than the previous ones in my opinion. The unicorn is still there, but smaller. I honestly don't mind it.
The scrollable widgets thing is amazing. They do great work!
Missed my chance to get it downloaded before work. I often have problems downloading large files through Chrome and have to switch to Firefox. Anyone know why that is?
Alright, I know I'm late to the game on this but Tapatalk is great for mobile use.
Haha, yes it is. I will be honest, I use it even more now that I am a guide. Being able to see the first part of a post without having to click through is a very valuable tool.
I'll still use the browser version for my PC but this is great on my Nexus. Is there a way to sync your favorites to Tapatalk?
Should be automatic.
Your subscribed forums will show up under favorites (I think) but your Favorite forums in the box on the left of the homepage don't sync.
Subscribed threads are automatic, and you can use the Participated tab to see all of the threads you have posted in. That is what I use most often.
Adjuster, that's the #1 reason to root: making nandroid backups of your phone's entire current state before doing ANYTHING fancy to it.
YES make a backup before flashing or upgrading a ROM.
YES make a backup at least weekly as a maintenance thing.
YES if you DON'T make backups I will come through your screen and personally scare you half to death!
I remember when Nandroid backups first came to Android - what a great time that was. I had already rooted my G1 and a month later I would be running CM V3.0 (or whatever he started at).
Nandroid v2.0 - Full NAND backup and restore tool (tried and tested!) - xda-developers
Is anyone else hooked on Cut the Rope like I am??
