IBT, did you tap the smiling bean and wait? I think you'll have some toys to play with
Reminds me of Asteroids.

That's what I was expecting too, but in my case, it never ever does that. It will ask me for my WiFi Password, and once I enter that, it will restore all my apps from the play store, but it always asks for my WiFi password.
No biggie - I know my WiFi Password. It is the part about setting up my gmail (and other Google apps accounts) - all of which have two factor authentication installed, and the authenticator app is not available since my phone is 'newly flashed'.
I end up going to my desktop, and generating an application specific password for each of my accounts, and using that to log in, and then, scanning my QR code for the authenticator - but wish there was an easier way of doing this. (wonder if Titanium Backup will do that if I restored app data for my gmail account - haven't tried it yet because of the warning on Sorcery to not restore from Titanium Backup)
How do you let Google auto restore apps and data?
If I clean install I always have to reinstall apps one at a time and reconnect manually to WiFi.
I restore the Authenticator App's data after each clean install... and all is fine. I have too many accounts tied to that app to manually set it up each time. I haven't had any issues doing this.
No data..just restores apps, WiFi info, gmail SIG, etc. If I am home it prompts me for WiFi password because u need a data connection to restore in the first place. If u skip WiFi at the start and let mob data restore your Google info, WiFi networks and password will be restored too.
Thanks - How about the actual gmail accounts? Does restoring the data work for that too? Or do you have to enter the one time use password each time?
That makes perfect sense! Thanks
Since I use to be more of a crack-flasher, I have since forwarded all my gmail accounts to one main account. So when I flash, I just enter in the main email account and I get all of the mail for all the other accounts there. I got sick of setting up multiple email accounts after each flash.
Anyone having issues with the lte toggle not showing the proper toggle state? Like lte will be on and the toggle in the notification area shows that it's off.
Edit: running jbs 5.1 with no additional mods.
Yup. I have that too.
I would officially like to throw my name in the hat of people who had issues with Sourcery + new radios. Frozen screens, dropped calls, random reboots...all gone since reverting the 4.1.1 radios. Haven't changed anything else. Nuthin. And I went from pulling out hair back to old glory.
Haven't checked toggle states, but I no longer have speech-to-text on Swiftkey. I hit the microphone button and absolutely NOTHING happens. I use it a lot: any suggestions?
The problem described in a few screen shots.
These are the radios I've been running since a week after they were released.
See eagle's post #3707. Maybe that will help.
Still want to know about flashing cwm. Anyone?
Couldn't agree more. Just my luck, I guess.
Using Rom Manager is probably the easiest way to flash cwm to this phone. The top option in the main menu will allow you to flash cwm. If anyone happened to find this post using search, this advice is only for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Flashing cwm using rom manager will hard brick many other Samsungs. Fortunately, we are exempt from this fear. Sorry about the disclaimer, its the worry wart mod in me.
I am actually having pretty good success with the radios. I have had the best reception since I have had the phone. I'm in a 4G heavy area but my house is in a deadzone for 3G even. I'm lucky to get 2 bars of 3G at home, but since 5.1, I have been getting 3 or 4 bars of 4G.
I am using inverted maximus gapps and I'm having a problem with Google Music. If I close the app then reopen later, it will not pick up where it left off.
I think I'm going to try switching to cwm and installing the regular gapps.
Hey there Dear Devs: thought I'd bring up a bitof an anomaly in the "present" you left us in IRC...
The zip file is for 5.1.3 Experimental, but the version IN the flash itself is 5.1.2. Just pointing that out
EDIT: Nevertheless, flashing it now - thanks!
In the installer script?
Looking in the "about phone" section mine says 5.1.3
Yes, the installer script in Recovery
EDIT: BTW LOVING 5.1.3! Cool new features afoot
I'm having issues with toggles and wifi too. Wifi and 3G/4G just doesn't work right.
I'm using TWRP (makes me think of the sound Spider-Man makes when he shoots his web). I guess I'll throw ol' CWM on there and try that again.
Is the experimental worth flashing too? Or should I use 5.1 still?
Is there a way to allow Google to reinstall all apps without doing this one at a time?
That is my current method install/accept then repeat 120 more times....
Jackburnt, I can suggest that you nandroid 5.1 and flash 5.1.3. Explore and find out what's new (!) and if you don't like it, wipe the phone and restore the nandroid. No love lost
EDIT: Not sure what happened, but now my speech-to-text works in 5.1.3. Happy now
Hey Developers: my son has the red JBS theme flashed, but wanted to go back to JBS 5.1 stock. It downloaded, we went into Recovery, nandroided, flashed the stock zip, IT LOST ROOT! Fixed root, and it rebooted, only to find that everything is still red.
what red theme did he install? wasnt aware we had one
