Liking Android so far, and the DesireHD screen is pretty nice to look at.
jailbreaking it is checking a box in settings called "allow installation of non-market apps"
thats not what jailbreaking does though, it roots your ios device and allows access to the system files
yeah it does
no it doesn't
when you jailbreak your iphone or whatever you plug it into the computer and restart it, the jailbreak program changes the system files and installs a custom firmware. Sounds like the same thing (different process) to me
Except you don't have to restart it and it pretty much just gives programs the ability to more advanced stuff
so the only difference is that you have to restart one and the other you dont
thinking about upgrading my HTC Hero (CDMA) to a Motorola Milestone X2 (aka rebranded DROID X2). I can do it for $80 since I'm due for an upgrade anyway
convince me otherwise
You guys know that sound your computers make when you bluescreen? usually some sort of violent buzzing from the speakers.
Well my phone likes to make that noise intermittently when i am listening to music, or when i am skipping through songs quickly.
It's not the SD card cause it does this with several of them, any ideas?
Edit: doesn't do this with video, or youtube.
I thought you meant Milestone 2 for a sec and I was like that's hardly an upgrade
I stand corrected and say go for it.
Eh, I'd take it if it were like $20.
I love my Windows Phone but not as much as I love Android.
Ah well. August 2013 is upgrade time.
What actually happens is very similar but the end result and why you do it is very different.
Android is very open when you get it, you just get a ROM on there for better power management and any customization features you prefer over what you had last. Jailbreaking is probably 99.9% used for pirating apps.
apples and oranges
theres a reason they dont call rooting jailbreaking and its because the two are very diffferent and not just in dumb semantics
no they are exactly the same except some of the stuff you can do jailbroken you don't need to on android
i have a problem with my power button, it doesn't work at all. i cant put my device in/out of standby mode without leaving it for a while or plugging it in, and a factory reset didnt work.
has anyone had this problem before and how did you fix it? google doesnt help
what the christ, i cant dowload either
and when i could download it told me on an empty page: try again later
works now, but the speed is total shit
I swear that since the Megaupload incident, every download website became ten times worse.
mediafire is good
not enough people use it though. Especially not android stuff developers
whenever i upload stuff i always use dropbox
anyway I'm downloading the ROM from both websites and will rehost it to mediafire (or something else?).. 1 hour left on the first download, two hours on the second one. Speeds change like mad on these two though.,
alright, you re-upload it
yeah, anyway, I got it to download too
it goes at 60kb/s so I've also got around an hour left
