    yeah, the LPB radio with the latest cm9 build had a huge wakelock from the RILJ on my phone (at least, betterbatterystats says so)

    I'm back to LP6 and it's fine

    swear to god doing some moderate internet browsing it was going down at almost 1% a minute, might as well hook it up to a car battery or something

    Edited:

    New radio has fixed it though, yay

    Looking at the other ROMs available for my Atrix and the Neutrino ROM has some really interesting features. Will probably miss some of the really nice features from MIUI but I've literally not heard a bad word said about Neutrino. Oh well, guess I'll just do a Nandroid and I can always restore if I don't like it.

    p.s. home for the weekend and posting from my Dad's Hannspad using the bluetooth keyboard that came with my Atrix and I am really feeling a tablet right about now.

    I think you need to do a reflash of the system, it sounds like SystemUI was broken for some reason.
    How do I do that? I can't find anything for it on google, could anyone point me in the right direction?

    I'm fed up with my iPhone 4 and am currently looking for a replacement.

    I would like a nice, fairly large screen, decent build quality and efficient handling of music and apps.

    Do you guys think the Samsung Galaxy SII would be a good option?

    The Galaxy SII tends to be the best option. Always the go to phone for Android. The Galaxy Nexus is also pretty kickass, considering it's a Nexus phone.

    If you really want a big screen, damn nice performance and the ability to say you have one, I've heard nothing bad about the Galaxy Note.

    Is there any way (through a launcher or other app) to make my tablet (Transformer) more like Windows?
    What I mean is like with multiple windows, apps that don't take up the whole screen, etc. More like a computer, where you drag windows around, an app drawer that pops up and takes up a corner (like the start menu).
    I saw a commercial for (what I assume to be) a webOS tablet, and it kind of looked like what I'm thinking about.

    So, is there any way to accomplish this?

    Not really.

    Maybe in the distant future Apps will work with X11, but not now.

    You can execute Linux ARM binaries on it, get the terminal emulator.

    Mess with your tablet for ~1 month then install cyanogenmod
    You can compile Pascal and C/C++ on it and there are some apps similar to Notepad++

    Yeah, I've seen faze actively be a cunt multiple times whereas gary just comes across as a bit dumb but ultimately a nice enough guy. Posts way too much in this thread though so he's much more of an active annoyance.
    I post too much? Probably because I have too much time on my hands and whenever I go onto FP, I always go into the Android thread, because you guys are awesome.

    But that was last year in February. Has there been any news of it since then? Because that is exactly what I'm looking for. Is there a beta or anything for it?

    You mean phone carrier/service prodider right?

    Well, all of them have android devices, all of them good since the high-end ones usually go to only one carrier at first.

    I charged my SGS2 last night, wake up this morning to see that the battery is already under 50%. I check the battery usage to see this.





    I'm still pretty new to android, but I know that is not right, Android OS usually ran at 20-23%, could someone explain how to fix this?

    You can sideload any app by ticking a box in the settings menu - that's the big one, you can install any app not just market ones.

    Anyway, I love the Terminal Emulator. If nothing else but for the looks I get using it.

    Also there's Steam and Facepunch, though on the Prime that should run just in the browser fine.

    As for rooting, it lets you access every file, it's admin access if you aren't used to Linux terminology. Most custom ROMs (which are community made distributions versions of android) are rooted off the bat.

    Root it and install AdFree, it's the most essential app man can have.

    Completely brick? - No
    Send to a bootloop? - Yes, but easily fixable

    Aside from the "real" fixes, have you considered leaving it plugged in over night? I mean, I've seen this so many times on reddit/XDA where the battery dies down due to apps such as Twitter, Facebook and so on, pushing for updates. I generally charge mine overnight, although it would be fully charged in an hour or so, it wouldn't be so bad leaving plugged in.

    Unless you're a enviro-freak

    There are apps which require root on the market (adfree for example). And yes you are rooted since superuser asked you for permission.
