    TPT Helper - Help.
    For anyone like me who has spent many hours trying to get TPT helper to work there is a secret.

    You press (probably like me you know and are not an idiot, but including just in case)
    Volume up (top switch for volume)
    Menu (middle horizontal lines)
    power (button on right hand side)

    BUT

    Don't hold onto the power button waiting for some text to come up, it never will.
    you NEED to press power JUST BRIEFLY then RELEASE whilst still pressing volume up and menu still.

    It's amazing. Fully working ICS. I went for the topogigi one with v6sc and kickarsekernel.
    8550 in Antutu but sdcard as ever slow. Not sure I really need JB now.
    Hoping battery is good but v28g overclock was giving up to 2 days.

    Docsmiley I tried they Rom you mention, had audio issues after a bit battery problems as well. Ended up even bricking the phone at one point when I tried cwm6.
    Also when I tried it it wasnt anywhere as smooth as cm10/topo. Been using topo Rom for over a day and its still amazing.. and just an alpha. If you give a try would be interested on your thoughts.
    The topo alpha so far is the best rom. If battery keeps up might even beat Paul's fr Rom but 62% so will see...

    What everyone needs in the topogigi or whatever his name is- ics alpha
    Seems to have the buttery bits from cm10. Just installed so can't comment on audio and turned off WiFi in sleep focus in video dodgy but it is an alpha. Seems pretty stunning so far. Went for the LG bits on install not sure if you can do just stock but new LG bits are very nice looms.

  8. dbbloke added a post in a topic Nexus 4, 7 3G and 10 go on sale, 4 sells out   

    It's funny reading the comments being in the camp who did not rush out and try and buy.
    Everyone is very passionate, and thinks google are terrible and wont buy a nexus 10 :)
    But FFS, come on, They release a new phone at a bargain price (compared to other stuff in the UK) with latest OS etc and Google who surely know a bit or 10 about load balancing cant cope.
    I think the problem is - too many people hitting the site, not enough devices for supply and demand. I'm not sure other sites could have coped much better. Although Amazon / Ebay do OK.

    My experiences with the play store and google people is more than fine. This is surely just one of those very unusual blips.

  9. dbbloke added a post in a topic Less than a week until the Nexus 4 release, are you still buying?   

    Keeping the lg 2x for a bit.
    Bound to be better deals than the device store like with the nexus 7.
    Also loads of cheap great phones out soon, all with micro SD & better specs.

  11. dbbloke added a post in a topic Why there's no SD cards in Nexus devices   

    Lets hope google comes up with some smart software to either make 8gb usable or to allow removable storage.

    e.g.
    if the photos / recorded videos / spheres have gone to the cloud then there should be a retention policy which wipes the file from the device (with an option to keep sentimental stuff or if you have played back a file 50 times then it should keep the file knowing you like it so much - last access time or something).

    If you have an sdcard then for things like large games or photos / music / bulk copying it should intelligently ask you or copy the files to the removable media knowing full well that if it copies to the internal 8gb (6gb after formatting/system) it will fill it and cause swap type problems.
    Google needs a smart storage IO manager. I could go on about device class / speeds etc.. I'm pretty surprised there isn't an IO standard with things like.
    removable/non removable
    retention policy
    SLA
    Availablity - Value of data (dont lose photos)


    To just say, we prefer the phone storage option is bollocks, it's an excuse for not thinking out how people use phones in real life and / or not implementing software in an intelligent way.
    Is everyone at google smoking dope, I often wonder. Usually I just send companies all my ideas, but this time they can read this.

    Actually, come to think of it, with phones cameras actually getting decent (Sony Exmor, HDR etc) I'm surprised there aren't 2 sdcards in devices for raid mirroring as well as off site cloud backup.

    Google, hire some people with a brain in their skulls and stop talking bollocks to people in the real world who are on to you.

    Just wondering, what's something like the ZTE Z5 going to sell for now?

  13. dbbloke added a post in a topic Have Google changed mobile phone pricing forever?   

    Phone pricing has changed. The google phone could really be cheaper but I guess Taxes have a lot to answer for.
    It's missing a few features for an advanced user - LTE, better camera, 1080 screen, microsdhc.

    Hoping the Nexus 5 if it happens will fix this and the price of the Nexus 4 will drop to 200, Nexus 5 300 or something.

    e.g. new quad core ZTE u950 is $159. So suddenly the Nexus 4 really does look not such a great deal !!

  15. dbbloke added a post in a topic So... which Nexus(') are you buying?   

    Hate how we pay so much tax / VAT in the UK. Pricing would be spot on otherwise and I would put my money down for an 8gb phone (how much for 8gb extra ram!)
    Phone looks nice, but a few niggles. Thinking oppo 5, huawei D2, or some other 1080p phone.
    Mind you, the new ZTE / Beidou Little Pepper quad core goes on presale tomorrow for just over 100 quids :)
