I was a victim to clicking through things too fast and was recently greeted with a blank friends list when I pulled my phone out the other day to see if my wife had made it where she was going.  The version of maps that is running on devices with Jelly Bean such as the Nexus 7 is different than what is currently running on 4.0.4.  If you did what I did and un-checked the wrong box you can actually mess up friends for all other mobile devices and even using a browser.  Instructions on how to get your Friend List back after the break.

With the 4.0.4 leak out a lot of people were wondering what happens if this is not made available to the general public.  I did some digging around have been working with the built in backup of ICS using ADB.  Read on for instructions to backup your phone. (more…)

The Droid X2 Soak test went out over the weekend and I wanted to play with it a little before releasing it and instructions for those of you out there that are not registered to the Motorola feedback network.  So far the phone does seem more responsive which is to be expected after a kernel update.  Read on for the file and how you can manually install it.

I have seen a few posts on other forums about people wanting to go back to stock to get the OTA.  There have also been a lot of questions about rooting after the OTA and if it will remove root.  I decided I would take my phone back to 2.3.7 and then install superuser for 2.3.7.  After that I will take the OTA to see if a few things happen.  Is the recovery replaced?  Does the OTA remove the SU binary and in effect superuser access?  Read on to see the results and what the next steps are.

So you don’t want to flash that nice full factory image I posted?  What if you are not one of the first people to get the OTA since Sprint said it could take “weeks” for all devices to get it? Read on for the update link and instructions. (more…)

Here is a followup to the extracted radio from earlier.  I have the 4.0.4 IMM76D build for the NS4G uploaded and ready to go with instructions.  This will wipe your device there are plenty of 4.0.4 builds out there from source already but if you want to try what the OTA should be here it is.  I am working on updating my ROM and should have a 4.0.4 based build ready sometime this week.

Android is a nice “open” Operating System.  I use the term open loosely because of carrier lock down and other outside factors that are not related to Android but plague most users.  If you are anything like me though you have a few old Android phones lying around.  Android is such a great OS and the apps that are out there make it something I want to carry around without having 3 different Gmail accounts on my daily use phone, I don’t mind carrying a few devices with me either.  Without rooting a phone it was difficult to find a decent dialer or setup that worked well for VOIP.  The method I found has been out there for a while but I am finally getting around to creating a decent article for it since it’s something I have been using while working on my builds.  Read on for the apps and setup that are needed to make use of that old handset you might have lying around.  Tablet and other Android device users such as Galaxy Player users you really need to read this too.
