    On the app it should be in your subscribed list and it will remember where you were. On the browser it will show as a little arrow next to the last poster's name. If you click that it brings you to the last post.

    Guess so!

    Deodex is just a different way to package all the different apps included in the rom so making mods like we are is easy and doesn't require whole new roms and reloading of apps and such. When everything is odexed it really can be modified on the fly with a quick flash of a few files. Not sure on the specifics, but it's sorta a file format for the apps so they can be hacked and modified on the fly to tweak the launcher, soft buttons, and status bar and such as we are all doing.

    I think I need to stick to my day job. I flashed the soft key mod in this link:

    http://androidforums.com/galaxy-nex...eys-apm-ab-mods-12-17-2011-a.html#post3660397

    He said to just flash, no need to wipe anything, which is what I did.

    It rebooted after install, and the search button was there, but when I pressed on it, it did nothing.

    I tried pushing it in the market app, and it did go into search mode. But it didn't work anywhere else.

    In my browser, it suddenly rebooted by itself. Afterwards, it got all frakking laggy.

    I just restored again.

    :(

    Pretty sure when you flash the zip you can delete it unless you want it on there as a backup starting point.

    Yeah that's about it. A Non-Deodex rom includes the apk with the XML and such and then there is a Odex file as well. Without having just the right setup it makes compiling very difficult. When you Deodex a from you Undo the Odex file and incorporate it into the actual apk file. To compile all you need is to decompile the apk with the framework built in and its easy to XML and smali/Java edit to your hearts content.

    Deodex makes themes a million times easier and faster to run.

    The way I understand it is Deodexing breaks the OS and apps into piece parts, right down to the smallest component, and packages them together. For example, the battery icon. Deodexing makes it to where you can easily go in and replace all 5 or 6 of however many different states there are with different images and have custom battery icons. I know that's very high level overview and not getting into details, but pretty simple explanation in terms that most can understand.

    I have that rom and that mod and it worked so I guess it might be something with your Revolution ROM having some framework or other changes from stock that make that mod not work fully??

    BTW, I usually just run repackaged stock roms that aren't tweaked too much until a new google release and it's build are a bit better matured and understood to the point all these mods and tweaks work a bit more universally. Then go for the roms that have a lot of these tweaks build into the actual rom later.

    WARNING - GEEK MOMENT BELOW!

    On my way to work, I stopped at CVS, grabbed a card for my lovely wife, went to the register, after the clerk rung up the card, I unlocked my phone with my face (clerk started oddly looking at me), then held the phone up to the terminal (now the clerk really thought I'd lost it), it asked for my PIN, entered that and paid for the card with Google Wallet. The clerk said "oh, that must be an iPhone". (#%@#%@#!%@#%$@#$) Got in my car, started Car Home Ultra (a nice car dock app), where I started Pandora and navigation to my office, and thought what a geek this phone has made me, but loved it nonetheless!

    On a side note, anyone else notice the number of apps that are updating the last couple of days? I can't help but think that some of those are due to ICS.

    You left out the part where you went bonkers on the poor clerk for mistaking your Nexus with an iPhone. Please tell me you didn't just stand there and take that without at least saying something.

    Another question for the Nexan's out there.

    Anyone else run into WiFi flakeyness of any sorts yet? On my home wifi I had trouble connecting to wifi once. It saw the router, but couldn't connect. I rebooted the router and all was fine. Later though I was trying to download something and noticed it was downloading REAL slow on the Nexus through WiFi and then tried downloading on my Laptop through the same connection and it went real fast. Haven't really noticed it enough to be concerned yet, but my Wifi reception shows pretty good when I am having the issues. Also haven't hooked into any other routers to see if they behave a bit better with my Nexus.

    Just got my extended battery, chargin' it right up. What was the verdict on using the extended cover with the stock battery? Does it require a shim?
  15. jasaero

    Haven't tried that yet. My guess is that the stock battery won't come out far enough to disconnect you, but something like the NFC stuffs might have issues as I have had to re-seat a battery to get that to work even with the correct cover. Don't think it would take more than some tissue or napkin to fill any gap that is there to be on the safe side yet and haven't had the battery get hot enough for that to seem dangerous yet.

    Incipio case is the hands down winner in my book.
    Bonus: comes with a kickstand that works with the case in portrait or landscape.

    Almost got ninja'd by Razor posting that DL article.

    What does everyone here do for work (or student)? Just curious to see if relates to time spent on here.

    LOL...well, I need to ask the Lord for forgiveness, for my thoughts. :)

    Actually, I told her the iPhone will be the LAST phone that'll get that capability! I told her this is an Android phone...the arch enemy of the iPhone...lol. She probably thinks I'm totally nuts now, but oh well!

    I'm rooted/unlocked, but haven't really done anything else with my phone as far as mods requiring root. However, I do want to install the "system" version of Nova Launcher (I'm already using the app version...like it pretty well.)

    How do I do that? I think I'm supposed to simply put the .apk file in the /system folder, but then what? Restart the phone with the volume buttons and power button depressed? If so, then what? help? Gotta admit I'm a noob when it comes to rooting, modding my phone (but this Nexus is too good to pass up on that!)
