    Modding days were fun. Now, all of those mods are already baked into stock ROMs.

    Yeah, NA. I was definitely around for the heyday. Gnex on Verizon. The ultimate modding phone.

    Grabbed their halos and are sitting on big puffy clouds looking down on us all now? We learned at their knees and their job is done. :p

    The team just faded away over time as traffic waned.

    It was The Dream Team. Helpful, funny, good human beings. I miss many of the mods who have moved on. I may visit other sites but keep coming back here.

    We took them out back and shot them... It really did a number on phases (he pulled the trigger) and that's why he quit. So far I haven't had to kill anyone, and I got a shiny new red badge! lol

    :'(
    Want to come back :)

    Phases parted ways a while ago. He was running a project tarantula forum for a bit where I kept up with him, but that went dark a few months ago so nothing lately. If you search project tarantula you should be able to find him on social media. Rob is around as much as he ever was. :rolleyes:

    Like @Unforgiven said, Rob isn't around much, he backed off his web properties, he actually sold Phandroid, and this forum is all that is left.

    Not surprised to hear that about phases. Tried to reach out to him right after I 'took over' and hash out some stuff, never heard from him. Meh

    I follow his wife on insta (she runs the page for their cats, lol) and I see all his spider videos on insta and youtube, downright creepy crap, lol. He's like a spider dealer or something?

    Actually, I fired it up a few years back because I missed modding. What that did was give me trouble in the Verizon Wireless computers. I couldn't get the Gnex out to get my Note back in. I don't believe I still have the Gnex, though. It was a neat modding experience.
    So neat.

    I power up some of my old phones here and there. I still have the OG Droid Incredible, the phone that brought me to this forum oh so long ago.

    I still have a fully functional OG Droid kicking around. Until last fall it was my daily alarm clock. That phone is a rock.
