    Now the my Guidely duties are done for the day? Cinderdaddy stuff: go to the dump, recycle station, grocery store, check the mail, prepare dinner, etc.

    Oh, I can hardly STAND the excitement :rolleyes:

    I have plans to finally get to activating this new Nexus Verizon sent me...Only problem is, is that I got it because my current Nexus has a broken USB port and I can't unroot/relock it without USB. Thinking about just sending the replacement back to them and letting them know I don't need it. I don't want to get charged retail for this...Haha

    S-S-S-SUCKS!

    Isn't there an app that lets you do this stuff via Bluetooth to the PC? That would be a very handy app... but then again, apps wouldn't help with bootloader stuff because it's outside the OS. Man, what a pickle to be in. Sorry about the USB port thing... :(

    Yeah...I am not happy. The farthest I have gotten is being able to access ADB commands via Wifi, but as soon as I get into the bootloader to do anything, it is all fastboot commands and it doesn't work....I guess I am going to have to send the replacement back. I have been looking for ways to do this for like 4 hours now and can't seem to find a way.

    Yeah, it's a nice cool morning here too, love it! Supposed to get up into the upper 70s and sunny. Maybe I'll get out somewhere to watch the Preakness this afternoon. We have a local dive bar called The Red Derby and they usually go all out on derby days.

    You know, it's entirely possible that some test technician, overloaded with work, will test the USB port, see that it doesn't function, and pass it on to the Samsung depot for repair/reprogramming without ever noticing that it's unlocked and rooted.

    Just a thought that I'm sure you've already considered... but I'd personally put your odds at 60/40 of successfully keeping the new one and trading out the rooted one ;)

    I have an old rom I found in my downloads folder from December that at least is more stock than the Liquid themed rom that I am running. I know its just looks and if they just look at the phone info they will know, but every little bit helps right!?

    And if they say something about the unlock symbol on boot up, I'll just tell them it came like that. It will work...NOT. Haha

    Everybody seems to be having a busy morning; no activity yet (or simply because BB is still sleeping!).
    Headed off to brunch with a good friend and her lovely dog, al fresco of course. Everyone have a great day; here's hoping to good weather for all!

    Morning all!! A quick pop in to say hi. He's here, we were up till 4 talking and now I'm just waiting for the call that he is awake. I'm beyond happy and pretty much dancing on air.
    Oh, and he brought me chocolate, yummy delicious chocolate.

    Won't be around too much today, have a ton of yardwork to do, and it's such a beautiful day. Hope everyone has a great day, including you BB! ;)

    It sure is a ghost town in here!
    Texted the wife to see when she'd be home from work:
    "ETA?"
    "Never"
    Yikes!
    All the other friends have plans so I guess I'll just hang out here for the evening. Order some delivery and watch the Preakness.

    I was just about to say: 5 hours without a post! :eek:

    I tell ya, when BB is out busy this place shuts up in breathless anticipation or something...

    Too stormy here to grill the Porterhouses, so it's pizza delivery tonight. Maybe steaks tomorrow.

    Dread, I've been married nearly 22 years... I wouldn't know what to do with the gory details anyway :rolleyes:

    Got to finally see the One X today. That thing is one sexy phone. Too bad the Incr LTE looks like a piece.
    Just loaded up Liquid 1.4 and boy does this thing fly (with Leans latest nightly OC'd to 1.6). Nice to have another fresh start on this guy.

    Did you get your phone replaced? What happened?

    I have been thinking about using Liquid... how is she?

    Nah, I was just in BB so I figured I'd check it out. I didn't see the One S though.
    Liquid is working really well. I don't see a huge difference between it and AOKP. Liquid on my OG Droid was insanely themed but was one of the best. I'm glad Devs are embracing ICS as it was meant to be.
    On a side note, as much as I love the 180 degree rotation, I found its biggest flaw. Answering a phone call when it is upside down doesn't work too well. As Jobs said, "You're holding it wrong"! :rolleyes:

    Right on! I am too attached to AOKP to even flash anything right now, but it is sooooo tempting. If this wedding I am at doesn't start soon I just may :p!
