  1. Nope, you're fine! From Android 4.0 onwards Google included a script which automatically restored the default recovery if you'd flashed something like ClockworkMod. If you wanted CWM to stick, you had to delete or rename this script, which is all that this menu option means. DRM keys etc are completely safe - the only time you might run into issues is if you either:- i) Fart around with Google Wallet and custom ROMs on a regular basis without resetting Wallet each time. ii) Encrypt your device and then decide you want to flash different ROMs, which will result in a factory reset.
  2. Just a heads up that if you've updated to 4.1.1 (or 4.1) this doesn't work.
  3. Fix for stuck on "Activating Account" problem: Reset Google Wallet through the settings page (this might take a minute or two). Connect your phone to your computer and issue the following command through ADB: ./adb shell am broadcast -a android.intent.action.MASTER_CLEAR_NOTIFICATION[/CODE][/background][/font][/color] [font=Roboto, helvetica, arial, sans-serif][color=#282828]That's it - this completely clears the secure element in the phone, which frankly is something that the app should do anyway when it resets itself. [/color][/font] [color=#282828][font=Roboto, helvetica, arial, sans-serif][Note - you can't do this to activated numerous Google accounts to get multiple free $10 credits, so not worth the effort of potentially knackering the secure element in your phone. The free $10 is tied to the secure element ID, so this is why if you buy a second hand phone you might not always get the $10 credit.][/font][/color]
  4. Getting there - got a stock install back on the phone and have tried again with a new bake. Taken a couple of hours because I've had to install Windows on my Macbook. It'll install the core but fails on the option pack straight away with error code 6. Edit: Ah, I see the options pack has already disappeared from FileSonic. Giving up!
  5. Hi Paul - good news, the emails have stopped. I got about 8 with the "Core" link, and then the 9th contained the "Options" link. However, haven't had much success getting it going on my GS2. Wiped, installed the core followed by the options pack, but the phone won't start. Stays stuck on the first loading screen (the one that usually has the yellow triangle). Wiping and then installing just the "Core" package allows the ROM to boot. Is there a log or anything saved that I can send you? Edit: OK, so installing the Core, rebooting, and then installing the Options pack is a bad idea. Can't get into ClockworkMod anymore. *Fires up ODIN*
  6. Hi Paul... how do I stop the emails reminding me that the ROM is ready? ;-) I'm up to nine copies now!
  7. From XDA-Developers (this seemed to work for a few people, including me): DLL error solution: * Use UK version of Kies - ends 11_3, running "As Administrator". * If you use a password / pattern lock, temporarily disable it. * Start process - as the phone restarts, you'll see Windows try to install a driver but not quite succeed before the DLL error occurs. * DO NOT CLOSE KIES. * Restart the phone. * Wait until it's completely restarted, then reconnect it to the PC. * Kies will attempt the firmware update again and this time it will work, with the driver already loaded into memory and installing quickly.
  8. Hi Paul, Would really appreciate an updated version for KDE7. :-) Cheers, David,
  9. Picked one up today - unfortunately they made me buy a £10 top up to go with it, but on the bright side the phone was unlocked!
  10. v1.2 released: Version 1.2 is now on the Android Market. Changes include: * Greyscale rendering option * "Use Internal Storage" option (for Droid Incredible users) * Numerous bug fixes
  11. Update v1.1 (16/07/10): Just uploaded version 1.1 to the Market. Amongst other fixes this addresses an issue where incomplete album art collections resulted in a large number of grey Android tiles (missing artwork) showing on the home screen. The app will now make 10 attempts to find a replacement tile before giving up and moving on.
  12. Have spent a bit more time working on Live Wallpapers, and the newest one pulls your album art and shows it on the home screen, a bit like the screensaver OS X comes with. Features: * Accesses your Android album art library (if you see it in Music Player, you see it here...) * Shuffle feature * Compatible with LauncherPro * Very fast (approx 0.5 seconds on first load) * Smooth scrolling between screens * Periodically changes individual covers * Opaque setting to make pale text easier to read. Update: Thanks to the team of beta testers who did a great job helping me identify bugs and implement a few new features. The Album Art Live Wallpaper is now released to the Market for 99p, and a demo is also available for free. For some reason QR codes won't show up in these forums, but you can find it by searching for "Album Art Live Wallpaper" or "AndroidGamer" in the Market. Free copies: If you encounter a serious problem in the demo (for example, it won't load on your phone) and you work with me to fix it by sending a log entry etc, you get to keep a free copy. ;-) Original XDA Developers thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=723997 Links: Album Art Live Wallpaper (£0.99) Album Art Live Wallpaper (Demo) Update v1.1 (16/07/10): Just uploaded version 1.1 to the Market.

  13. I'm pleased to announce the release of the Advanced Map Live Wallpaper, which allows you to show your position on a variety of maps on the homescreen. Features: * Wide selection of maps (Ordnance Survey, Google, Satellite, Terrain, Bing, OpenStreetMap, USA VFR and IFR charts...) * Battery friendly - it uses network locations and shuts down whenever the homescreen isn't visible. * Data friendly - aggressive caching means that you should only need to download a map tile once. * Variable zoom on all maps * Accuracy circle (can be switched off) It's partly based on my original OS Map application, and draws on code from the open-sourced Rmaps2 and the AndNav library. Consequently, this application is also open-source, with the source available as soon as I've figured out how to use the Google Code repository (or you have have it as a ZIP file by email). Notes: This is a BETA release. I'd appreciate it if you could post any problems in this thread instead of leaving a low rating on the app. Ordnance Survey maps won't work outside the UK. Right now, if you turn GPS on, you may need to select another wallpaper before it'll turn off again. You might also need to turn "Refresh Position" on in the settings page, which will be fixed in the next update. Finally, I apologise to whoever's house is in the screenshots since I picked a location at random!
