  1. ascot17 added a post in a topic HTC One X Review   


    Managed to find both phones in a shop on Friday.
    I am going with the One S next week for the simple reason that it can comfortably be used one-handed. The One X is just too wide to feel comfortable in the hand.

    Paul,

    Many thanks for a great review!

    As someone who has had some serious hands-on time with the One X and One S, may I ask which do you prefer?
    I am intending to upgrade to one of these next week - I just can't decide which one!

  3. ascot17 added a post in a topic Which rom (GingerBread +A2SD+ sense) for my desire?   


    Correct - but it is an excellent ROM. I have been using custom ROMs on my Desire for over a year and Insert Coin is the best one to date. Use the stock (A2SD+) ROM assuming you have a standard HBOOT.

    The alternative would be to create your own partition sizes with ,say, a 15Kb partition for the cache, 190-200 for system and the rest available for data.

    This thread tells you how (not tried it myself though - am sticking to A2SD+ for now):

    If you have a nandroid backup of your ROM, have a look at the size of the folders to see if a different partition will work. My r9 nandroid backup has the following sizes:

    System: 183230784 b (179Mb)
    Cache: 12517824 b (12.2Mb)
    Data: 111065856 b (108.5 Mb)

    This suggests that a 10Mb cache might be a little bit too small. The actual size of yours will depend on the number of apps that you have installed and where they are...

    HTC Sense works on the Desire - you just need a HD ROM. Plenty of those available at xda-developers (Modaco is currently well behind). My current favourite is here and has taken over from MCRr9 as my everyday ROM:

    I keep seeing references to the 'N1 Table'. Can you please explain what this is? How do I know if I have it or need it and where do I find it?

    EDIT: Found the tables here: http://alpharev.nl/.
    Not sure which one I flashed though. How do I check...??

    Excellent post - many thanks!

    I think I have downloaded everything I need. Will give it a go when I get the time.
    The only item I can't seem to find is the black/grey striped wallpaper for the scrolling theme. It is not in the dropbox. Do you still have a copy please?

    @Lohot:

    Great looking phone!

    Can you please give us an idea of how you got your phone to look like that? I have had a look at the JAMT site but am at a loss where to begin.
    What launcher/widgets/icons are you using please?

    Thanks......

  11. ascot17 added a post in a topic [SOLVED] Reduce ext3 A2SD+ partition   


    It sounds like you phone is struggling to mount the ext partition.

    Do you have a nandroid backup of your ROM? The partition has not been restored to the SD card unless you have restored a backed-up ROM.

    Assuming you have a backup, boot the phone into recovery. Restore the ROM which will restore the ext partition and then reboot the phone....

  13. ascot17 added a post in a topic Got stuck - need stock RUU for T-Mobile Germany   


    You have a few different things here!

    If you have successfully debranded your phone, you would not have a T-mobile splash screen!

    Applying a generic RUU will get rid of the spash screen, but will return your baked ROM to stock. You can find a selection of stock RUUs here:

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=695667

    You don't need to apply a stock RUU to install a new radio. As you have Unrevoked, copy a new radio to your sd card, boot into recovery and flash the radio. You will find the latest radio here:

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=809328

    If you just want to flash a new boot image, search the forums on modaco or xda, there is plenty of guidance there. (Don't confuse the Splash 1 screen with the Boot Image. The splash 1 is the fixed image you get when the phone is first turned on. This can be change if you have S-OFF. The Boot Image is the 2nd (animated) image during the boot process)

    I would wait a day or 2 though. There should be a new version shortly with a working camera.

    Sounds like your IMEI number is blocked in your home country then!
