Hi people, I was talking with hroark13 earlier about a boot-frozen, not quite boot-looping Samsung Galaxy Prevail of mine. Nice guy, btw... gave me cogent help that was in the right direction & he hung around after-hours to see me through. My phone is still crap after the fix, but I got a great tip tonight, and that is to use ClockWorkMod to do complete phone/system/root/OS backups. We are all using the same phone in this forum. In theory, your backups would be compatible with my phone, right? And mine with yours, using this recovery tool called CWM? I mean, since it's all the same phone... Pretty similar to the Galaxy & Galaxy S, too, right? I haven't used this to restore a working backup yet, but I get the impression that it's a phone in a box. Assuming you could wipe all personally identifying data and then dump the OS contents into your backup image (mine thinks it's 2007!), we could all try out different configurations and assortments of apps. Is this naive in some way or is it just too late at night? Like for example, I could release "DemGyalGettinMehMOD" v0.1 - DGGMM(ftw) " Edition" and put it out there? From a cheap ripoff of other mods + apps all the way to cobbled together configurations that are unique? I'm sure some cheeky monkey would try to make a trojan distro or harness it secretly but it would be found. So in this way, they could become as swappable as Linux or Winbuilder LiveCDs are as alternate OS'. On the underground... before someone released one with commercials or trial/bloat. Your thughts.
