i updated the version of my phone google samsung nexus S. But now i really wanted to back its old version. How can I?
In the past, I rooted all the Android phones I've owned in order to flash CyanogenMod for a more "stock" experience and to overclock less capable hardware. I just bought the Nexus 4 today and was wondering if there were any significant advantages to rooting an already high performing device with stock Android. I'm not really looking to put on any themes or fancy customization of that sort, although a numeric battery indicator would be nice. If you're a Nexus owner, why do you root your device...
the power button fr my google nexus S stopped working.. im not sure if its hardware/software issue. Any solutions?
There are two signs on the back side of nexus s, one is GOOGLE and the second is SAMSUNG
i have a blackberry user for a long time, and even have a playbook. But, now I feel that they are, or will not improve their devices to keep other smartphone out there. I did use the first Moto Droid liked it, but could not stand the issues with the OS, i have an ipod touch for music playback. I have a mac and Ubuntu machine in the house. So I am asking, did Android improve or fix most of their bugs, and what about IOS, i heard it just works, with minimal issues.
So I am hoping, that you can...
Like many, I'm finding the battery life on the Nexus S to be a bit of a pain. What's the best aftermarket battery to buy for the Nexus S that extends the battery life, but doesn't change the phone's form factor?
My brother bought a Nexus S (on T-Mo) shortly after it came out and he's been bragging ever since about how amazing the battery life is. He claims the OEM battery gives him a full day of heavy use, including lots of talk time, and that he never charges it anywhere but his bed side. But since the ICS update, he says battery life has been cut in half. Anybody else seeing this?
received the notification for the OTA update yesterday evening, downloaded the update but wasn’t able to install it because I didn’t had enough battery left.
I charged the phone during the night and was hoping to install the update this morning but I can’t find it anymore. If I go to “About phone”/“System updates” it says the phone is up to date.
How can I install the update?
In two weeks I will be going to Philippines and Hong Kong to visit family and I'll have a smartphone with me for the first time.
I'll mostly be using my phone for texting and data (can't wait to get my first international foursquare checkin!).
What prepaid service providers offer the best value when it comes to texting and data in Philippines and in Hong Kong?
P.S. If it helps, I'll be in Makati in Philippines.
I rooted my Nexus S and loaded up the AOSP Ice Cream Sandwich ROM. Now in some areas, my signal is shown as H (as opposed to E or 3G).
I'm assuming it stands for HSPA+ (T-Mo's 4G), but I wasn't aware that my phone had the antennas to handle HSPA+. I still see E (Edge) and 3G shown when I am in those areas, but the H is a new occurrence that wasn't there in Gingerbread.
Has anyone else seen this on their Nexus S?
Today I rooted my Nexus S and installed Android 4.0.1 (Ice Cream Sandwich). It's leaps and bounds better than Gingerbread and it has made me even more excited to get my hands on the Galaxy Nexus.
Since this is my first rooting and custom ROM experience, what are the interesting things that I can do with root access? What are the must-have apps for root users?
Under normal circumstances, I wouldn't have rooted, but my Nexus S is getting a bit old, the screen is cracked, and I plan on getting the...
I recall in the Samsung Unpacked event, it was mentioned that the new Dialer app had tighter integration with Google Voice. It would be awesome if that integration was as a result of Verizon integrating with Google Voice as Sprint does. Any thoughts/ideas?
