of course i'm new to the stellar, we all are, right? fortunately there is an exploit already available to us for root! yay and thank you! what is not out there yet is documentation. sure, we can attempt to learn a few tricks from the s series siblings... and a few work too. not all though, and we now have some of our own issues that are starting to pop up. this means we need to band together now, all few of us who jumped on this free phone from vzw. i'm not complaining about this phone by any means. this is a massive upgrade from the lg optimus 1 model i had for over 2 years! speed is great on board, battery life is amazing and the size and price were perfect. sure, i could have used a better camera and a flash.. yes a flash at least would have been nice. but again the price is perfect for this galaxy installment. issues i have found and or have heard of that we need solutions to: 1. yes, we can root. it is however ill advised to delete any stock app from our phone. it has been proven to brick on the removal of the most useless of apps. this means you are limited still on the size of your stock rom ( i have not heard any good news of using any other rom on the stellar yet). if you root just to delete apps simply because you don't want to see them, in the app manager, you can hide apps. they stay in the rom, just don't show on your apps list. *to watch the devs in action working on the stellar go here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1910810 2. a way around the mounted "sd". we are given 2 gigs built in to play with. that's cool, we can put a 32 gig sd card in, right? yes, but it is only for files and media, for now. we currently do not have a way to move apps to sd, meaning we are limited to 2 gigs in apps (great for beginners, poor for pros). *there is an app called gl to sd in the google play store that will allow most gameloft apps and a few others (i sucsessfully moved google earth with it and it still works!) to move to the extsd. this will allow for a little extra space 3. wifi constantly losing its connection, not reconnecting automaticly. a saved network constantly receiving authentication failed and saved networks just sitting uselessly when in range, then you manually have to connect (yes, i'm whining about this, i expect auto to mean auto). 4. this one is personal and is extremely annoying to me. every time i get near any place that is listed in the yellow pages, i'm offered to check in there from my phone itself, not an app that i have installed. sure i could turn off my gps, but again, i want everything on my phone automatic.... except being told when to check in. i want that part manual. join in, stellar people, and lets all work together to figure this stuff out!
