    I went out horseback riding with my college daughter today. It was an absolutely gorgeous blue bird day and I said, "Darn, I wish I brought the camera."

    Wait a minute....

    In light of the recent autobiographies and on behalf of the three of us on the forum who do NOT live in New Jersey, here are some GNex photos of my back yard of Moab.

    This place just screams for the panorama function. My daughter loved it!

    I use desktop visualizer. If you want something in the dock you have to use one of the first two widget sizes. The others get denied.

    I do "stuff" for "acquaintances"...

    In CWR scroll to advanced; wipe battery; profit.

    There is also an app called, oddly enough, Battery Calibration tool.

    Compared to a Moto he might be. Motorola's will commonly give you a mile or more from a tower than other brand phones for whatever reason.

    Do you know if your file would work on my gnex? I am guessing yes, and if so would someone mind pulling their .bak file and posting it/sending it for me?

    Thanks!!!

    FYI TO ALL:

    theres a new set of leaked radios floating around... might want to give them a try if you arent happy with your signal and see if it improves

    the lower the dBm the better, not really sure what asu is

    i think anything around ~80 is considered a pretty good signal, and iirc around -50 is theoretically perfect signal

    I found there is a new leak of the Nexus radio: My Droid World Forums

    Here is a direct link for ya so you don't have to sign up for MDW: http://www.mydroidfiles.com/download...dios_btldr.zip

    Be careful when flashing -- not 100% sure of the origin of the file though.

    I did that, I read the FAQ on the site and followed the step by step.
    I found out that my firm ware for the drive was not up to date for Windows 7.

    When I get a chance these week I will try again.

    Thanks, Bob V.

    Well one project left to go this semester! Too bad my laptop is cranky and i can't work on it for a while... :( I really need a new one.

    We also don't have a tv so I'm not sure what to do for the next few hours. No other homework to do and my new books haven't arrived...
