Motorola Droid :: Pros And Cons Of Rooting?

Jun 28, 2010

I've had my Droid for about 4 months now and I love it. I came from a long line of BB's so it's refreshing. But I get tired very quickly of having limits I guess. I don't know whether to go Droid X, wait for Froyo release or Root my Droid. I know it's a smaller processor in my Droid but it's not exactly SLOW. I have pdaNET and don't need to Root due to tethering. I just want something a little quicker. Pros and Cons are what I am after?

Motorola Droid :: Pros And Cons Of Rooting

Aug 25, 2010

I was wondering, would I only be able to take advantage of my phone (were I to root it) from my computer at home as far as making changes that I can't do now, or will I be able to do a lot of it from my phone too? I ask because I have more time to use my phone than my computer since I'm away from home working a lot of hours during the week. I am also nervous that I might mess my phone up if I root it, or that it will need warranty replacement after being rooted and be broken to the point that I can't undo that before I take it in. I am not a tech expert or computer nerd but I can follow directions and I'm far from technically challenged. I don't doubt I could do that if I wanted to. I'm just not sure if rooting is for me, although I think a lot of stuff I want to do I can't without rooting, I just hope I don't get in over my head.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Rooting For Beginners - Pros And Cons

Feb 1, 2010

I know their are plenty of topics about how to root, what it does, and roms and everything. But I and others are a still a bit concerned I am sure. If you don't plan on helping or contributing to this then don't say their are plenty of topics on the site and other websites. I have read the forum on xda developers on how to root the CDMA Hero, but I am still a bit confused. If you root what are some benefits, I have heard sometimes the device runs alot faster and snappier, and I have heard it is slow and sluggish. Also what are some other things that can be tweaked/customized, I would want to do this to screen capture, change to a white taskbar, and maybe try and add a rom. What is the best method to changing Roms, what program do I need? Also is it possible that if I were to change roms to go back to the stock rom and stock settings without bricking or screwing up my phone. If anyone can give me the best method, and a 2.0 or 2.1 rom for the hero, I don't care if HTC sense is on their or not. I like 2.1 without it. Anyone who can give details on why I should, shouldn't would be greatly appreciated and I am sure many people would too. Anything that gives or lists benefits and things you can do if you root would be great. Also a link to the best forum or youtube video that gives detailed responses on step by step instructions on how to root for the Sprint CDMA Hero.

Sprint HTC Hero :: What Are Pros And Cons Of Apps 2sd (after Rooting)?

Dec 29, 2009

Let's say the user starts with a 16GB, class 6 SD card. What are the benefits of storing apps to the SD card? Does it let the phone run smoother? Does it allow you to install more apps on your phone? What are the cons? Do apps take longer to open/load? Is there a risk of damaging the SD card and/or the phone? If someone could explain this to me as thoroughly as possible.

Aug 19, 2010

For those of you who have switched from a storm to a droid what are the pros and cons? Do you regret the switch?

I am about to make the switch myself and I was wondering if there are any must have apps for a former BB user. I use quicklaunch and berrybuzz and crunch SMS a lot. Are there similar programs?

Lastly I was a crackberry user and frequented there app store. Is there and equivalent? I found the crackberry store sometimes had apps BB app world didn't have.

Android : SDK Adobe AIR / Pros And Cons?

Jul 6, 2010

Has anybody blogged about this comparison, or does anyone want to give it a shot here? Would be nice to see some reasoned thoughts on Adobe AIR on Android vs. the "native" Android SDK (in Java). Edit: Despite few views and no answers, I'm leaving this question up here since it's a topic that needs to be covered at some point but if it gets no attention I'll delete it in a few days.

Android :: IDE Pros And Cons For J2ME And Development

Jul 7, 2010

I have been tasked with updating my teams dev. environment. This environment will be used to develop and test J2ME and Android mobile applications. I am looking at NetBeans 6.8 and Eclipse 3.6. Do you have any recommendations for why either of these would be good or bad for this? (aka mobile plugin problems, compatibility issues, ease of setup/maintenance for team members, high quality mobile dev. support, etc.)

HTC Hero :: Android 2.1 Pros And Cons (compared With 1.5)

Sep 29, 2010

I have an unlocked, unbranded Hero (bought without a SIM, currently being used with a 3 UK SIM) and am waiting (patiently) for notification when an update is available. Nothing has arrived on my phone and I can't see anything relevant on the HTC Support website. Meanwhile I understand that many Hero users have already been able to upgrade and so have presumably experienced the pros and cons of the upgrade. Googling for information I find a number of reports of "issues", especially with the Sprint version of the Hero. Do people generally find that the advantages outweigh the disadvantages?

Sprint HTC Hero :: Pros And Cons Regarding Upgrade Hardware

Sep 23, 2010

I'm looking for a little bit of opinion and a little bit of inside info (if anybody's got any) with regards to upgrading hardware. As everyone is aware, the Hero came out in October 2009, meaning that in a few short weeks, anyone who purchased the Hero at launch (at least those with "Premium" standing) is eligible for a hardware upgrade. I have been on the fence about pulling the trigger on upgrading to an Evo (as I'm sure quite a few people are as well). I've taken a look at some of the pros and cons and I'm still weighing my decision on those. I'm not going to go into the pros and cons because that's not the goal of this post. I understand fully that technology, especially in the world of smartphones, is a very fluid animal and that "the next big thing" is always around the corner. No matter what you do, anytime you purchase a phone/computer/etc, it's obsolete within 3-4 months, and sometimes sooner. I can accept that. What I would like to avoid, is upgrading my phone and on the 31st day (the day after you can return it) have Sprint announce that the next big thing is around the corner and will be released in November/December. I've done some research over the past few weeks, and I can't seem to find any information on any new phones coming to Sprint, so I was hoping that the fine people in the forum could provide guidance. I haven't even really heard any rumors with regards to the next Android phone coming to Sprint.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Pros And Cons Of Chomp And Handcent?

Android :: Pros And Cons - Sense Vs Ninja Blur

Sep 1, 2010

I was wondering if anyone could help me make my decision between the HTC Incredible, the Droid 2 and the Droid X. I'm leaning towards the Droid X at this point over the Droid 2, because the physical keyboard seems superfluous. I type much more quickly on my iPod Touch than I do on my phone, which has a physical qwerty on it. I'm hoping Swype and a bigger screen will make it even better. For that reason, the Droid 2 is kind of a long shot, in my opinion.

Alas, it's mostly down to the X and the Incredible. After having read up on the specs of both rather extensively for the past few weeks (I'll have money to kill my AT&T contract and get on with Verizon sometime this month), the only thing I haven't been able to research very well is Sense versus the stripped-down version of Blur on the phones.

Android : What Are Pros - Cons To Use IPhone To Write Scripts?

May 18, 2009

What are the pros and cons to use iPhone/Android phones to write scripts?

I'd like to buy a new mobile phone which I can utilize my time to do some scripting even when I'm not at my desktop computer.I heard that you can't save files to your iPhone unless you jail break it. This maybe a big problem if I want to create some new scripting file. Say I want to create a and there's no way for me to save it.

Is it the same case for Android too? Can I create local scripting files on Android phones? Since Android is a linux os... is it possible to install java sdk or other sdk (like flex?) on it?

Android : Quartz 2D Or OpenGLES / Pros And Cons In Long Term

Apr 8, 2010

I'm having a hard time deciding whether to go with Quartz2D or OpenGL for an iPad game. It will be 2D mostly, but effect-intense (simultaneous lighting effects for 10-30 objects, 10-20 simultaneous animations on the screen). So far, assuming i'm equally dumb in both technologies and have to learn them from the ground, i came to this list. (I've read several topics here, on SO, with names like "Quartz or OpenGL", but i'm still left with some questions)

Android :: Pros - Cons Of Multiple Activities In An App Vs One Activity - Multiple Views

Aug 16, 2010

Are there design guidelines to help decide if an application with multiple views should be designed with multiple activities or just one activity and control the back button itself.

I've tried both. My most complex applications using one activity per screen. However, now that I'm successfully written an app with just one activity and handling the back button myself, I don't see any compelling reason to use multiple activities. The one activity application is much simpler and more straightforward.

What advantages of multiple activities am I missing?

Android :: Android Vs Symbian - Differences - Pros And Cons

Feb 4, 2010

I have a Nokia E71 (Symbian S60 v3) and am considering moving to either a Nokia N97 mini (Symbian S60 v5) or to Android, probably a Motorola Milestone/Droid.

What are the main differences between the two systems?

My priorities are a good battery life, a good push email system via imap idle, good PIM and sync to google calendar and maybe RememberTheMilk for tasks. I don't care about facebook, myspace, etc

I also like to organize my contacts into groups and I understand Android is better for this.

I know these discussions can degenerate into flames or some sort of "religion wars" (e.g. Windows vs Linux) but I'm only really interested in an honest comparison between the two systems. Much to my surprise, I could find very little on the web.

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?
