I had something strange happen on my phone. Landed in dbn from a flight from JHB and when i switched on my phone there was a picture of a large green droid with the word start on top. below the droid was "downloading do not turn off target" nothing happened after a long time so i restarted. anyone seen this?
In all honesty I was expecting something more from the S3 event.
After using my Galaxy nexus, my next phone will be a nexus. I love vanilla ICS.
The main reason my next phone will be another nexus...software updates.
I got mine from Vodacom and have yakjuxw I don't think you can buy yakju here.
Ditto, but I've rooted and changed to yakju. So far, so good. Just waiting now for the next update to see if it was worth the bother.
I've read that someone here said OTA updates aren't compatible with clockwork, iirc? Does that mean that if one rooted, you won't receive future updates, but will have to update manually each time?
Is anyone else having problems with video streaming on the nexus? Almost every time I want to check a youtube video out it won't load, just stays at the spinning circle animation. If I reboot my phone and try again immediately on startup the video loads and plays fine. Any idea what the problem could be? Any ideas on how to troubleshoot / debug this problem?
Damn, that sucks...
Only reason I rooted was to use DroidWall. I'm wondering if I shouldn't unroot and just be done with it?
Or, the alternative being unroot-update-root each time a new update is available?
Video streaming is fine on my 4.0.4 flashed nexus. Are you trying through 3G or wifi? Only problems I had earlier was my ISP (WA), throttling youtube. Currently on a 7-day MWEB trial and it's working great. I use wifi at home for streaming to capitalise on the uncapped ADSL.
Okay i need some advice.
Currently have a Desire and its now time to upgrade.
Should i get the Nexus or rather wait for "Next Gen" phones. i.e S3, HTC ONE X/S ?
I really like the look of stock ICS but im also a fan of HTC Sense (thanks to the desire). Do you think R4500 is a good price for the nexus?
Yes, it's a good price. That's what they cost now?
Mine's on contract form Vodacom, but the handset price (in March) was close to 7 grand, 6k8, iirc.
