General :: Security Concerns About Rooting / Custom Roms

Dec 26, 2012

So after having seen that I could use CyanogenMod 10.1 to get version 4.2.1 onto my Tab, I've gained a particular interest in rooting my p3113. With that said, I still have concerns about security with custom roms;

-How do I make sure I am as secure as possible?
-Is it still safe to purchase with Google Wallet on the Play Store?
-What should I avoid in order to remain safe?

I know the "risks" involved in rooting a device, although following instructions will assure that such issues do not occure. So other than the actual security issues, I need no additional information

Feb 27, 2013

Having obtained the bootloader unlock key from Huawei, how does one unlock and root the phone? Will one be able to backup the original firmware that comes bundled with the phone and restore it on a whim, if required? Are there any custom ROMs for this particular model?

HTC EVO 4G :: Rooting And Custom ROMs

Nov 24, 2010

I have searched here and via Google searches about Rooting and custom ROMs. I still am not quite sure what any of it means. I know rooting allows access to things that you normally cannot do such as removing HTC and Sprint apps. Which I would LOVE to do. I mean, who the hell wants the stock widget anyway?

HTC Incredible :: Installing Custom Roms / Rooting

Sep 27, 2010

I have been using the INC for about 2 months now and i really do like the phone. As all of you know, the battery sucks. I picked up the 1500 battery about the same time the 2.2 came out and the battery life dropped over the 2.1/stocker. I thought it may have been the battery so i used the stock 1300 for a while and it was TERRIBLE. To add to the issue, the battery takes longer to charge then it does die. And thats why i am posting this. Could someone give me a list of what i need to do while rooting my phone and installing custom roms? that will speed up charge time? Normally i wont ask for help like this but i have zero time to sit down and read about everything. Just looking for a simple fix to get me by for the next few months.

LG Ally :: Basics Of Rooting - Recovery And Custom ROMs

Aug 19, 2010

I'm feeling the itch to go beyond the standard settings in Android and get into rooting. I'm following along with a lot of the developments here, but I often feel like I'm missing a lot of the background knowledge and vocabulary (what is recovery, how does one access it, what are all these different programs - nandroid, adb, etc.) to have a really strong grasp of what's going on here.

Now, if this were my computer, I'd just hop right in and start following along as best I can and mess things up along the way, no biggie, I have multiple computers and I'm competent to fix them.

I don't have a landline though, so I want to be a little more prepared before I accidentally brick my link to the outside world. Is there a good "tinkering with Android primer" out there that any of you would recommend?

Also, how easy is it to get back from whence I came on the Ally? I read the thread on unrooting, and I honestly didn't understand a lot of it, so I'm just looking for a "not gonna happen" or "it'll be easy when you finally understand."

Android :: Best Site For Rooting And Applying Custom ROMs?

Jan 4, 2010

So I am pretty computer savvy but just getting into the phone scene. Wondering what site is best for the hacker side talk of phones?
Androidcommunity vs Androidforums vs XDA dev forums?

Which is better for instructions on rootings and applying custom ROMs?
Which is better for finding ROMs?
Which has more users?
Which has more experts?

Anyone familiar with the other site or one I may not know about can fill me in a bit? I seem to like this site the most but if there is more information elsewhere, I may need to pool my resources. I would prefer for android forums to be my 1 stop shop n go.

Motorola Droid :: Rooting And Installing Custom Roms

Aug 27, 2010

I have been messing around with rooting and installing custom roms then going stock messing with settings then going to another to see how I like it. In the past, after I flashed a stock .sbf file I would be prompted for the Froyo OTA update. I just did it again last night. I was wondering, can you flash your phone too many times where you start to cause problems? And, does Verizon keep a check on how many times you've downloaded an update? Or, is it just not popping up because FRG22D is out?

HTC EVO 4G :: Rooting - Wipe Data - Flash Custom Roms?

I looked over at the instructions and it says all you data will be wiped. So rooting will likely be the absolute first thing I do. After you root its stated you can flash custom roms. Can someone go more in depth on this? Will Sense not work anymore once the phone is rooted? Any other points of interest that is worth noting?

General :: LG Revolution Rooting And ROMs?

Feb 12, 2012

I just got a LG revolution for free as a replacement for my Droid X until I can upgrade. and So far I really dig this phone. I miss my 8mp Camera a bit, but that sacrifice is well worth the faster CPU, and the myriad of other improvements and performance boots over the Droid X.

ANYWAYS. So I am not new to rooting or using ROMs, did it all the time on my DX and D2G. But I haven't had a chance to check out whats out there for the Revolution. where i can find the tools i need to root this phone (can i use 4zroot ?) and the how to on it.

Dec 19, 2012

Could it be able to create an emulator for droid to emulate another Droid, like that you are stock and want to know if a rom Nightly is stable or want to test in in some other way, always flashing back and forth is not very convenient, I think something like an Emu would be better...

Is there a method, would it need root or is it even able to develop such a thing???

General :: Custom ROMs For Motorola XT800?

Nov 19, 2010

I was disappointed that CyanogenMod doesn't list my phone as supported.

I've searched this forum for any other custom ROMs for my Motorola XT800 and didn't see any specifically listed.

I've got 2.1 installed, and want to install a ROM with 2.2, but before I root my phone, I'd like to know what my options are for custom ROMs that I can use.

This is a dual SIM phone purchased in China that I use with China Mobile GSM and China Telecom CDMA. Awesome phone btw, except for not having the Android Market app installed and China Telecom's not releasing an update to FroYo yet...

General :: Can Custom ROMs Be Flashed On ANY Device

Mar 1, 2012

I'm doing a bit of research before going on to root my HTC Salsa. I wanna know that after rooting will I be able to flash ANY new ROM that comes into the market?

Or is there any hardware restriction as such?

My HTC Salsa currently has the following specs - Android 2.3.3, HTC Sence 2.1

So if a new ROM comes out and has got Sense 3.5, ICS Update, Beats Audio etc etc.. will I be able to install it on my device or will there be any hardware problems?

General :: Custom ROMs And Application Development?

Mar 15, 2012

I recently installed a custom ROM in my phone.

What I noticed is that the problem is either that my phone drivers can't be installed for some reason (I have a SGS being treated as a Google Nexus S), or I just can't implement applications.I mean that when I try to build an application on Eclipse, my phone is not recognized, like I don't have it plugged in.

General :: Porting Custom ROMs To Motorola Phone

May 24, 2012

I own an Motorola XT316 device, and i can't find an Custom ROM, so i was thinking to port one from Galaxy 5 (i5550) or LG Optimus me (same hardware, same screen, maybe same camera).

The problem is how to do it, because theres some differences between them like the camera. The XT316 has an locked bootloader, this can screw everything?
