  1. Is this meant to happen? This happens in recovery and the OS, This is a very annoying when turning up my volume on the phone. The volume function on the phone still works so i can still turn the volume up, but this is still annoying as the phone keeps going back a page when i increase the volume. Can anyone help me? This is the model with the TFT screen...Is this a known issue? I upgraded from Gen 1 to Gen 2, could this be the problem?
  2. I ended up winning an auction on ebay for a ZTE Blade for £44 total, Thanks
  3. I am looking to buy another t-mobile pulse/huawei U8220 off ebay, To use as a throw-away/backup phone incase my current phone (Samsung galaxy s2) breaks, Is there still development happening with this phone and would it still be worth getting one? Or any other suggestions for cheap android phones?
  4. I am currently on TWRP recovery, i find the UI much easier (bigger buttons, no accidental pressing) and it looks a lot better
  5. I do Glossy, It was a general question really, I have gave up on the OSD for now since i don't have a Job yet in order to buy the device.
  6. Thank you guys, I will be getting this phone, sometime, maybe tomorrow to a few weeks time, I am sorry that I won't be able to help with the root problem, as I said, I am not a developer, I am just a person who has a keen intrest in Technology :P Thanks again guys for the replies!
  7. I would not be able to afford a S3 myself, Personally you're comparison between the S2 and SD, I will miss my S2 ofcourse (It would be going to my mum, I can always have it back :P) I think i'd like to try the SD for myself, I personally like the NFC feature, but Bluetooth 2.1 in a 2012 smartphone? My S2 is from 2011 and that has Bluetooth 3.0, Obviously there's not really any differences but i want to be sure. Thank you for you're reply 'captainkremmen'
  8. You will need to unlock the bootloader before root can be achieved don't you? As you will need to run some sort of modified kernel? I am not where by means a developer but i do have a very good Intrest for Hacking and Technology in General EDIT 1: Looking at some sample pictures taken with the OSD, It looks to me to be comparable to my S2, Does the OSD have a LED flash, I can't seem to find one?
  9. Giving up ICS is fine (for now) as there will be custom roms as soon as root is available (COME ON WE CAN DO IT) I used gingerbread Modaco Rom GR8 on my S2 for a long time (8 months), I suppose i could live without root for a while. Thanks for you're replies
  10. My Parents are deciding weather to get me this phone or not, but i would have to give up my beloved S2, my question is, is it worth it for this phone? It wouldn't matter anyway as they have said, I can have it for 2 weeks, if i don't like it i can go back to my S2, I would still like to know though Specs wise: I think it is worth it Build quality wise/screen size: Not so sure EDIT 1: I know the phone is unlockable :) But I use Root apps on a daily basis, so i would have to wait for root, I mean even my app restorer needs root, lol
  11. I found a port: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=28027089 This could be dangerous
  12. I was wondering how difficult would it be to port over Android 4.1 jellybean from the Galaxy Nexus to the S2?
  13. Great, I personally can't wait, JaellyBean for the S2, Yes, I'm still using my S2, I don't have a Job and I can't afford a new phone each year, Every about 2-3 years I upgrade.
  14. Vodafone told you to install Super User????? Looks like vodafone support rooting? BTW: Super user by it's self cannot backup apps, you need Titanium Backup
  15. You can try going here: http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=1113928 Look for Vodafone UK, now as for trying to retrive the firmware version...well, i can't help you on that. (I am sure another lovely person on here can however). Here are your Vodafone UK choices: UK BUKE1:http://www.multiupload.com/TARRB84EP9 Firmware info: PDA:BUKE1 PHONE:BUKE1 CSC:VODKE2 BUKE1 Stock Kernel: http://www.multiupload.com/FHQDKQDXTE ">Firmware info: PDA:BUKE5| PHONE:BUKE1| CSC:VODKE2 BUKE5 Stock Kernel:http://www.multiupload.com/EQ8RFFVB7A BUKG2:http://www.multiupload.com/6VDARTUR8S Firmware info: PDA:BUKG2| PHONE:BUKG1| CSC:VODKE2 BUKG2 Stock Kernel:http://www.multiupload.com/EDZSOA710N > BUKJ3:http://www.multiupload.com/4RWSNMKARK Firmware info: PDA:BUKJ3| PHONE:BUKI1| CSC:VODKI2 BUKJ3 Stock Kernel: http://www.multiupload.com/DLLNZST33J"> Password: [email protected] Now since this is a receent phone, I am just guessing here, but it should be one of the last 2 options on this list. I hope i helped you, If you need any further assistance with this issue, don';t be afraid to ask me or another more experienced person (There are lots of them) EDIT 1: I will try to remove the copy, paste format error.
  16. I use DarkyOTA based off the Official KLQ release: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1544689
  17. I think you'd be better be asking over at the ubuntu forums. I'll try mount my S2 in my ubuntu VM and report back
  18. I would be a tester for this ROM if it came out, i have been using Modaco GR8 since GR1 (The first one) came out. In fact, i have zip files of all the GR versions (somewhere) EDIT 1: I need this ROM as the ROM i am on now DarkyOTA ICS (LPQ) does not recieve a GPS signal?
  19. Why resist, i rooted my contracted s2 within 2 weeks of getting it.
  20. The download is slow, it will take 3 hours from now? my connection is 31mb/s so....the d/l servers are slow, I'm sure it'll be worth it in the end. Thanks.
