  1. Using Paul's MCR and stock browser (not Chrome), I was able to load up the 4OD mobile site and play items. I am getting connection timeout errors, which may just be my internet connection. I don't get flash update messages. Are you sure you are not using Chrome to hit the site? Flash it not supported in Chrome at all. Looking at the 4OD site, there is no Android app, they just push you to the mobile site: http://www.channel4.com/devices/
  2. Hi Paul, Great to see that you are working on an MCR. I built a kitchen ROM with the BLN kernel, but It refused to boot. It seems to be the kernel, as when I flash ninpheramine 2.0.5 all seems good. I tried waiting lots for the cache to build, wiping and doing the same, reflashing and more of the former. Nothing seemed to give me joy. I did apply lots of other changes to the ROM in the kitchen, but like I say, swapping the kernel out on that custom ROM seemed to solve the problem. The ROM looks good, AOSP style with the options set. I doubt my phone will ever be stable again with me now switching between this ROM and Cyanogen checking out every release. Cheers Alex [edit] I did apply the SQlite speed mod, maybe that had some affect? Also, I applied all of the other expert options, except Odex me. Perhaps some bad combo of items there?
  3. My understanding is that the slow charge is to extend the life of the battery and prevent premature (even catastrophic) failure of the battery. I picked up three cheap Hong Kong replacement batteries from the bay for £6, that return at least similar battery performance to the OEM. I would love a ROM dev to remove the restrictions on charging ampage.
  4. @eck_strider I used Tasker to redirect search long press to anything else, it costs £3.99 on the market but is pretty awesome in general. If you want to poke around at it, I uploaded it to GitHub at https://github.com/c0m47053/VoiceRedirect Glad it was some use for you @bryant_16 This only seems to work on the older KE2 firmware and below. I am not sure if tasker responds to search long press either, but Tasker above should be able to utilize it if you are running an older firmware.
  5. Cool, I'm glad it was of use to you. Investigating this, it looks like Samsung have mangled the system server to force this intent to the vlingo app in KE7. Doesn't look fixable without a custom rom :D
  6. Someone has posted the Gingerbread default launcher over on XDA, its for the original Galaxy S but seems to work fine on my SII. There is also an APK for the Gingerbread keyboard, but I didn't try that one since I quite like Swype.
  7. I flashed KE7 today, but haven't had chance to test it. Will install it later and see If something has changed in KE7. [edit] Looks like Samsung have changed something around the way this works in KE7, will see if I can fix it.
  8. Hi there, I have put together an app to redirect the VOICE_COMMAND action that is being used by VoiceTalk, are redirect it to the long press search action. This can then be used by any app that supports it like Go SMS, or you can wire it up to anything else using something like Tasker. This is pretty much my first attempt at android development, so no guarantees but it seems to work well for me. You will get two choose action dialogues, the first is between VoiceTalk and my app, and the second is the result you want (Go SMS or the like). If you set defaults for both, then it should appear seamless after that. Let me know if you have any issues, and I am happy to have a look and fix if required. Thanks Alex [Edit] Looks like I can only upload zips and not apks here, so I have uploaded the zip and here is a link to the apk that you could use direct on the phone: http://c0m47053.ucoz.com/VoiceRedirect.apk VoiceRedirect.zip
  9. Cool, feel free to post a review when you get it. I think the minimal look would suit an Alfa, particularly if you had a spider.
  10. Yeah, I am considering it myself now. Some of the examples are pretty cool, smartphone on a pram is awesome!
  11. Someone over on XDA is using the Breffo SpiderPodium, and seems pretty positive with it. Upside is that is is universal and transferable to future/alternative devices. There are a few other discussions over there on car mounts as well.
  12. My Milestone? Kept it, will give it to my other half so was not interested in a trade in.
  13. Cool, would love to know if you are able to get the same deal. I picked up the phone this morning, awesome device. Another added bonus of doing it this way is the phone is a clean, unlocked, unbranded device so no medding around with unlock codes and flashing just to remove the branding and get official updates.
  14. I can tell you exactly where I came from and perhaps that will help. 18 months ago I bought a Motorola Milestone (regretted it, locked bootloader, won't buy Motorola again...) from Expansys with a T-Mobile contract, so not sure how that went down in T-Mobile's books. I got to the end of the contract, and asked for a PAC code (this was on Wednesday). They didn't really bother to make an offer at that point, but I didn't push them since I wasn't aware that they did this arrangement with CPW so you might get some results at this point. The PAC code doesn't really tie you into leaving, you can let it expire after 30 days and carry on as normal, and can request one any time after you enter you'r last billing period (my contract actually ends at the end of this month). I got a call from retentions this afternoon offering me the deal. Only problem was that my CPW didn't have the phone, so I have to drive to the next nearest branch tomorrow morning to pick up the phone. I would suggest calling cancellations and trying your luck, you can even go through with requesting the PAC code with no real consequence. Hope this helps you get the same deal. It really was much better than anything else I have seen, without having to go through Quidco and wait for online delivery. Alex
