    Moto E vs Prevail LTE

    Moto E looks like the best deal on an inexpensive yet well made phone. Also, Lollypop. I am sure there will be an active dev community also. My trusty 1 1/2 year old S3 is still better but it costs a lot more even today. The E looks like a good replacement in a pinch or a recommendation to...

    Root TowelRoot Text

    I rooted my buddies Metro LG L70 with TowelRoot a month ago. He loves it. I installed Supersu and the free Titanium Backup and removed the bloat. I also installed an app so he could write to his SD card. He has had no problems with it. He tells me that he got a text from "Google" today...

    Titanium Backup Protect Backup Option.

    I usually only keep 1 or 2 backups. I used to also use the option to protect a backup which would keep it from being included in the Backup total and possibly get deleted. It has not worked in quite some time. It always says Sorry, the operation failed. It is a toast so I can't capture...

    Wet Phone

    This may be stating the obvious but I want to warn everyone to be very careful and avoid letting this phone get wet. It has a very low tolerance for moisture. I was stuck walking in a rain storm last Monday night. I had my phone in a jacket pocket zipped up. The jacket is partially rain proof...

    Root WIFI Hotspot

    Can someone post the Tether app that came with the Boost phone. Mine did not come with one. I assume that this will require root. Unless someone knows another app that does not.

    Text Messaging Problem

    For some reason, I have been having problems with Texting Recently. Many times when I send a text I am told that it did not transmit. But, many of those times I find out that it did. I use Handcent. This just started happening about a week ago. I don't change much stuff on my phone anymore...

    I have been using CM7 since Hroark released it. Had lots of time to play with it then. Not so much anymore. But, since I use it for virtually everything that I do each day, This phone is an essential part of my day. I hate security stuff but it is necessary unfortunately. I use SeekDroid if...

    Root New S2E for CM7

    Call me an old Fuddy Duddy (I don't know what that is, but I have always wanted to use that word ONCE), but I am still using Hroark13 CM7 on the Prevail. I tried and loved all the sd-ext kernels and options before returning to S2E after an improved update came out months ago. I love it and have...

    Well, I guess it is my turn now. When I turn on my phone I get the Samsung Logo and nothing else. Here is what I did that caused it: I ran PRL update (probably OK) and I ran Firmware update. I ran every option on that updates screen except Android update. I cannot remember the third one...

    Blood Pressure DataBase

    I doubt many of you young wippersnappers will care about this, but... Blood PressureDP is a neat app if you want to keep track of your readings using your Android. The data syncs with a web page that makes it easier to use the various charts and graphs that it produces. You can create a PDF...

    Titanium Backup - Backup Updated Apps

    When I get a notification from Market and update an application to a new release level will Titanium Backup recognize this change in the app and display the existing backup of the old release as out of date and/or show the updated app as not backed up? i use the Pro version, but I do not keep...

    Root App Freezing

    I see that many Root Utilities including Titanium Backup have the option to Freeze and Thaw applications. I assume this is usually an intermediate step before uninstalling an app to give you time to see that there are no ill effects. Maybe there are reasons to temporarily freeze an app. What...
