Galaxy Nexus Watering Hole

    About the whole iGoogle shutting down:

    Maybe it's because Apple patented the use of a lower case "i" at the beginning of a word and Google doesn't want yet another lawsuit :rolleyes:

    Hyundai makes excellent cars. They have come a long way in a very short time and is probably the best bang-for-your-buck out there.

    I both like and dread car shopping at the same time. I don't like the back-and-forth but a car is a big purchase so that part is always fun. Our cars are paid for and this is the first time in a long time we haven't had a car payment. However, we are in a unique position to where we can afford a car payment, since almost everything else is paid for. The Mini actually holds its value quite well, surprisingly enough. We have a very specific number we're willing to finance for 3 years, and not a penny more (our goal is to pay it off in about half the time). As long as the Honda dealer gives us enough for the trade-in, and/or drops enough off the price of the car, we'll probably go for it. We have the advantage that we don't need the new car, so if our conditions aren't met, we'll walk away. We have the upper hand/advantage - at least we like to think we do. :rolleyes:

    First attempt not so good. I'm going to wipe and try again tomorrow morning. I may have rushed the installation process so I'll take it slower when I have more time.

    svt - High humidity is a lot more uncomfortable, but a lot safer, as you are sweating just as much if not more with the higher heat, but its evaporating, so you don't feel like a wet mop.

    I grew up in Fayetteville, and while I miss friends back home I definitely do not miss the heat. Anything above 70 and I'm miserable! However, I seriously miss the severe thunder and lightening storms.... but now that I'm in Illinois I get to see more of em (call me crazy, but severe storms/tornados fascinate me). I recently spent many years on the west coast where the weather is very mild (a light drizzle and those people were freaking out about the "downpour").

    Cool, dark, overcast, dreary, wet, and icky. That's my kind of weather!

    Captain Ron:

    Some have reported that CWM - especially if the wipe is run through Rom Manager - doesn't quite wipe everything... leaving ICS remnants that might conflict with JB installation.

    I would recommend that you Google a zip called "Android Revolution HD Super Wipe". While there are several Super Wipes out there, I can only vouch for this one. In one flash, it FORMATS /data, /cache, /Dalvik, and /system. It completely wipes every bit away.

    Here'e my procedure for flashing Jelly Belly:

    Make a nandroid of ICS, and then copy EVERYTHING YOU OWN to the PC as a backup... including your backups!

    Boot into ClockworkMod from power-down.
    Flash Super Wipe
    Flash Jelly Belly 1.9
    Flash gapps (I prefer the 7-1-2012 version)

    Set up Android and stabilize the system.
    If you want add-ons ( and you do ;) ):

    Power down the phone.
    Boot into ClockworkMod from power-down.
    Wipe cache and Dalvik
    Flash 1% Circle Battery Mod
    Flash Power Menu Reboot Mod


    If you want any OTHER Mods, flash them in another CWM session. You don't want to flash them all at once.

    I used to use iGoogle all the time - can't believe its shutting down.

    In other (better) news, did a first run of my shell script in our QA environment today and it worked successfully. 12 different code deployments, taken care of by one automated script is so much easier than doing these manually. I can't wait until the whole process is fully automated and built into our ticketing system. Feels real awesome to have accomplished this. 450 lines of code in the main script and ~140 in each of the additional 7 scripts the main one calls.

    I wiped and installed via recovery, but I'll try super wipe and follow your steps. I see JB2.2 is up, but you're still recommending 1.9?

    Captain Ron, I would not recommend anything that new & unproven unless you really have time to experiment on the bleeding edge. I need a PHONE so I want something tested and verified to work on 99% of phones.

    Until I see no issues (or very few) on 2.2 in the Rootzwiki forum, I recommend 1.9 :)

    Well, since my first attempt last night was buggy, I'll go with your advice and stick with 1.9 for now.

    It's absolute ball soup here (yeah, I love that phrase). Just got off work and I'm so tired. Going to meet the in laws for dinner. I'll try and stomach some food but with this heat, I have no appetite.

    Cap't Ron:

    Jbdan is our guinea pig for Jelly Belly 2.2. So far, so good: flashed okay, booted up fast, GPS locked in seconds, things are looking good!

    But he recommends that we wait about 24 hours until we know it's stable and things work.

    And he says "hi" to you personally :)

    EDIT: WHOOT! I just got an e-mail from Verizon... my Darling Bride's SGS3 has shipped and it'll be here tomorrow! :D :D :D :D

    Then comes the 2 years of teaching her how to use it :rolleyes:

    I love her, ya know... she's just technologically impaired. Big Time.

    So the rumor is the fix for the Apple patent lawsuit is being incorporated into AOSP Jelly Bean. Which will mean the only non-crippled searches will be for those of us on the Jelly Bean roms derived from the IO nandroid. (Until the ROM devs find the code that disables it and re-enables it, ala El Tevo that is.

    Putting puzzle pieces together here. Google said they would push an update to address this to all Galaxy Nexus devices regardless of carrier. Said update will be pushed within the next week. Today they announce that new Nexus would be sold with Jellybean in order to comply with the patent ruling and resume shipping in the next week.

    So I'm reading this as JB is going to be pushed to all nexus within the next week regardless of carrier. Maybe I am overthinking it, but I can dream, right.

    Well the only phones Google has control over are the unlocked ones in the Play store. So I'm thinking it only goes out to those next week. On the bright side Verizon will be forced to rush the update for once or else face their own sales ban.

    You know, folks, this whole "universal search" thing is way overrated for me. It'll still search fine off-phone... it's the on-phone search that will be disabled.

    I don't know about you, but I have never used search to find a contact or a song or a movie. I use the apps for that. So I ain't gonna miss a thing.

    Are you? Is it really that catastrophic?

    I rarely use search at all, so it doesn't bother me a bit :D

    185 bucks.

    Thats what samsung offered me on trade in for my galaxy nexus. :rolleyes: I wish that is what they would give me for the borked radio in this sucker.

    I wonder what they would offer me for an iPhone 4s LOL :evil:

    Hey JB users I had a wallpaper from the Vicious rom that looked like buckyballs I believe it was the last one in the wallpaper section. It was not live. I was wondering if someone could grab it for me and post it.

    Considering I paid 200 for mine when I got it, that sounds pretty fair to me.

    Congrats on the promotion jmar!! That is a great thing!

    The craft store has Thanksgiving out already. :eek:

    I'm not sure I am missing ALL that much.

    I don't have time or inclination to set everything up again right now.

    And I can't wait to see the movie on Saturday!

    I'm going to see this next week with DSB!

    Oh, wait, a tear for you.....:rolleyes::p:D

    Dreams are good!

    Verizon rushing an update is dangerous in my opinion but they are pretty dangerous without being forced to do anything so I guess it's 6 of one/half dozen of another.


    I'm back! Had a great time. Can't wait to do another one. I see you all behaved and we have some new friends in the Watering Hole. Hope everyone had a great 4th and have stayed cool in this awful heat.

    So I am rather annoyed right now. After using my laptop to pay all my bills, I leave to get a printer cartridge. Upon returning, my internet is down. Yeah I can tether my lappy, but I can't watch Netflix without tethering to my PS3. Meanwhile, I also need to get some work down and need an internet connection, but again with the tethering. I don't want my Nexus to blow up while the whole house uses my phone as an internet hotspot. Seriously frustrated!
