Nexus :: Benefits Of Rooting N1?

Jan 21, 2010

I am going to wait to root for a bit but ultimately it is something I think I want to do. I understand how to do it and the risks involved, but what I am not really clear on are the benefits. I know it lets me run certain applications that require root access. But which ones are really that great? I don't need to overclock it. Its fast enough and battery life is bad enough. I don't need tethering although access point capabilities might be cool to show off. So what kind of programs / capabilities would I really be seeing?

HTC Incredible :: Benefits Of Multi Tasking?

May 5, 2010

Can someone give me a real world, bare bones, idea of how the multitasking on the Incredible (android in general) actually works or what makes it so great? I know that is one of the things people haven't liked about the Iphone, and by default it is seen as a big benefit to android phones. I'm about to get my first smart phone and while I like the idea of multitasking, I'm wondering how many things can I actually run and/or use at one time. As I have thought about it, admittedly I'm not experienced, but I was thinking I could listen to music, while sending a text, or surfing the net, or maybe running some app, but how many things can I really do at once on the phone? Maybe while on a call I can be surfing the net or playing a game or running some app?

If I'm playing a game, won't that take up the whole screen, if I'm using it for navigation, I can't really be texting while it is guiding me, or making a call, I guess I could, but who knows? Hopefully this doesn't sound too stupid of a question, I'm just trying to figure out how I will best utilize my phone when I get it. Maybe the idea is that I don't have to close things out or have them close in order to do something else, and that allows me to go right back to what I was doing before I changed tasks? Any thoughts someone might have on this? Please keep in mind, this isn't a complaint or probing question as to limitations, I'm really just trying to figure out all the cool things I will be able to do with my phone when I get it.

HTC Incredible :: Rooting My Incredible With Unrevoked 3 Stuck At Waiting For Root

Nov 30, 2010

I had a rooted Incredible using this method before however I had a problem with the on screen keyboard so I got a replacement. The replacement just came yesterday. Now I am rooting the replacement and the Unrevoked 3 program gets stuck at "Waiting for root... (Safe to restart if this doesn't work)"

I have the HBOOT drivers installed and my phone comes up in device manager as "Android Composite ADB Interface"

Did they apply a new update to the phone that prevents rooting? If so how long before I can get around it?

HTC EVO 4G :: Benefits Of Cyanogen Mod 6?

Sep 11, 2010

I have a rooted HTC Evo with the stock 2.2 system, and I am considering installing Cyanogen Mod 6, but I'm not sure if it is worth the hassle. What benefits does CM6 have over the rooted version of Froyo on the Evo. I kind of like the Sense UI, so that keeps me from going ahead and installing it. I know that Bluetooth controllers actually work in emulators if you use CM6, so that is a major selling point for me. Is there anything else I should know?

Android :: Benefits For Using WiFi?

Mar 27, 2010

If I am at home for hours at a time, what benefits come with using WiFi on my Droid Eris instead of the mobile network? When home, I have computer access so speed is of no concern. I'm just wondering what the battery life difference is, if any. And now that I think about it, if I'm home I could just be charging my phone so even if WiFi saved battery life it wouldn't be any gain. WiFi seems to be such a desirable feature, but I have no idea how it benefits me.

Motorola Droid :: Benefits Of 2.1?

Feb 21, 2010

Since many of us have rooted, installed Roms and have just about every app/aspect of the new 2.1 OS, what will actually be better or even is better by running 2.1? I know flash support will be 2.1-based, but haven't really heard of anything else that many of us do not already have, save maybe a truly functional 2.1 launcher. I do know it's not worth losing root over to even try(to me anyway), so I will most likely wait for a cooked 2.1 ROM after the official release. I'm a little leery of running a "leaked" OS.

HTC EVO 4G :: What Benefits Come From The 480x800 Resolution?

Apr 14, 2010

If you compare a Tattoo (2.8" 240x320) with a Hero (3.2" 320x480) and a Desire/Evo 4G (3.7"/4.3" 480x800), on all of these Sense UI devies you will see a 4x4 icon grid. Looking at screenshots I can see they could definitely fit 6x4 (6 being vertically) in, if not, at least a 5x4 icon grid. 4x4 on a 4.3" screen makes the icons too spread apart! Why haven't HTC made their home screens with 6x4 icon grids? Also, a 320x480 can fit nicely on a 3.2" screen, and if you multiply 320 by 1.5 and 480 by 1.5 you get the 480x800 resolution that is on the Desire on a screen 0.5" larger. So if you go 0.5" larger than that (or 0.6" larger tbe) and multiply 480 by 1.5 and 800 by 1.5, you could easily get a 4.3" screen that nicely produces 720x1200. Why haven't they used this resolution?

Motorola Droid :: Benefits Of Shifting To BB?

May 29, 2010

I'm using Droidmod and am trying to figure out why I'd want to move to something like Bugless Beast or some of the other 'much talked about' roms. I've got a very stable system. Don't have the 2.1 launcher but heard there's problems with it anyway. I have wireless wifi tethering and wired if I want it. Am using Smoked Glass theme which I really like. I have downloaded some live wallpaper but they eat battery life so don't bother with them. Am OC to 800 stable,1k if I want and when it's plugged in. Have the 'pinch to zoom' browser and gallery. Just what am I missing with these other roms? I cannot see a benefit to jumping to one from this. I'm trying but it just doesn't seem worth the hassle or the risk of getting a unstable platform.

Android :: Huge Benefits When Combining Quickdesk And Bar Control

Jul 30, 2010

The quick desk and bar control apps are so far my favourite. Previously I had my switches/toggles of WiFi/3g/gps/silent/bluetooth on the desktop. Now I have these switches in quickdesk. Thats not all - using the bar control app I can have any shortcuts in my slide down bar. So I just added the quickdesk app in my bar. The benefit is that I can now access my switches/toggles from anywhere.

For example if I am using my browser and forgot to switch on WiFi, while browser is open I just slide down the bar and through quick desk switch on WiFi. This means that I do not need to navigate away from the current app that is open. Normally you would have to minimize the current app open and navigate to desktop to toggle switches, then go back to the app you were using.
