  1. Yes the internal memory of the SGS3 is one big storage for the android system and all your data. You cannot move apps to external micro sd anymore as google don't allow it. You can of course copy data onto your external micro sd. You need to set the apps to use the micro sd (ExtSdCard) to write to that. Your camera app will prompt you to save to the external sd when you start it.
  2. jusumgeezer: I had tried the first ota leak, so it did have those problems I mentioned. The second leak DLH4 is not any better. My browser keeps force closing on that version, probably due to no flash support and the media scanner puts my cpu to 1.4ghz non stop for 20+ minutes everytime I reboot. The cpu gets hot and theres some battery drain because of it. Yes I can go to the aplications manager and stop it, but its not worth the hassle everyday. Like I said this is not a everyday use firmware yet. It is still beta I'd say. I'm not even bothering to try the latest leak DLH6 as they are reporting bugs in that version also. I'll just wait for the official version and hope that it is problem free.
  3. I have just loaded the samsung jellybean leaked rom and its buttery smooth, but it has a lot of problems. I just like to stress that this is not a daily use rom before you go and rush to put it on your gs3. Apart from a few new additions like Google Now, dormant mode and handwriting search in the browser, its basically the same as ice cream sandwich. It has a few bugs. You can't install paid apps from the play store. High cpu usage. Scrolling is not smooth some times. It has crashed when I went to check messages. Maps some times gives a ANR. If you still want to try it, get it from sammobile.com and instructions from XDA. I'm going back to ICS for now. Its going to be released by the end of this month so not long to wait now for the release version.
  4. You should post this list on XDA sgs3 accessories forum. XDA Link. XDA Gameklip Link. They would appreciate it there. The Gameklip maker has his own thread. I've played for hours with my controller plugged in and when the powers low I change batteries. ;-) I might try a test later to see which drains battery fastest.
  5. I have found out that once you copy over a certain amount of files over, about 12 to 13 thousand, it then becomes unstable and then 'damaged card' appears on your phone. I don't trust exFat on my sgs3. Its a pity as you could copy files greater than 4GB. I have found out a way of using NTFS on my sgs3 and 64GB card. It also supports 4GB+ files.
  6. Great list you put together. I just ordered the GameKlip with cable. It came to just over £26 with delivery. I'm hoping I don't get hit for import tax. That Andraxis is a weird one. The icontrol pad and Gametel are pricey for a not very ergonomic controller. They would hurt my hands after a short gaming session. That iCade is only for posers and too much money on their hands. :-) It all comes back to the good old dual shock 3. Works on anything and wireless with the sixaxis controller app and with the Gameklip it will make the SGS3 into a versatile portable games console. Who needs a ps vita when you've got this brilliant combination.
  7. Maybe the destroyed cards you got were fakes. You can check if it has any problems with a windows app called h2testw. I don't think the mobile will destroy your card. Formatting a 32GB card in the mobile will give you a FAT32 file system and a 64GB to exFAT.
  8. I bought a Sandisk 64GB card for my SGS3 but I have having problems with the exFat file system it uses. I format it in the phone itself although it came preformatted and copy all my files from my 32GB card to it using my laptop and a micro sdxc card reader. I then put it in the phone and it flashes up that its a damaged card, WTF. I got really worried for a moment and thought I had a dud or fake, but I bought from amazon so surely not. I then tried formatting it to fat32 but couldn't use windows 7 as it doesn't support it. I tried the HP format tool but that also gave me 'damaged card' after inserting it in my phone. I then found another fat32 formatter somebody mentioned on another forum and then copied all my files on it again which takes a while by the way and hey presto it doesnt give me 'damaged card' when I put it in. I have played games and movies that are on it and no problems. So it seems the reports that I read about exFat and 64GB micro sdxc cards working on this phone are false. It must be samsungs version of exFat thats the problem. I hope it will be fixed soon as I want to copy files larger than 4gb to it. Does anybody have one of these cards or another brand? Are you having the same problems?
  9. There is a easier solution than directory bind called GL TO SD. You can find it on the google playstore and its free. I have been using this since I had space problems with LG optimus 2x. It is easy to setup but there is a caveat in that you must start this app to run your games. You also need root. It also works for apps and non gameloft games too. I find having all my games in a list quicker to find and start games. Currently enjoying Nova 3 and that takes up nearly 2GB alone on my 64GB microsdxc card, so having this app is a space and time saver.
  10. I was not having any problems with MTP on BLFB. Copying files to my laptop and sgs3 was ok for me. If you wan't to use UMS (USB mass storage) mode instead then you can try this app on XDA http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1711009 There is a problem with the DLNA nearby devices that was working ok on ALF2. You just need to wait a bit longer before it activates and the text goes from grey to white. I believe it doesnt activate unless you have a DNLA device on already, on your network. Anyway it needs fixing by samsung.
  11. Hi Paul, I'm not sure about the navigation bar taking up screen space. I'm pretty much used to the touch and home buttons now anyway. What I really wanted to ask was are you updating your rom to be based on the XXBLFB firmware? It has better battery life now when on idle and has Allshare cast now in the settings plus a few improvements and additions. The extra features are listed here http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=1754804 Any chance of including hyperX camera mod in your kitchen? Its so much better taking pictures with the physical buttons. His mod is here http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=1691145
  12. The android browser in the latest firmware XXBLFB now does not have brightness controls anymore, only colour level for power saving. The browser brightness is now what you set in the settings. Infact there is now a brighness control in the pull down toggle menu.
  13. I have been using V20l BB + V20l ril for a week now and I have not noticed any problems with it. If you are using getril, the one I used is V20l, Italy. The other one on there gave me problems.
  14. Well I've sold my tf101 and pre-ordered my prime, to be delivered on 3 Jan hopefully. I will let you know if it's worth £499.99. Especially want to try the tegra 3 enhanced games like shadow gun and riptide plus onlive streaming. I hope the prime will play 720p and 1080p video smoothly as promised unlike the tf101. The wifi problems worry me abit but that has been sorted so they say. I'm really looking forward to this. I hope it doesn't disappoint. To Paul, will you be getting a prime and help us root it. Would like to see a prime forum. Oh and by the way happy new year in advance.
  15. Glad you got it rooted with a B70. I gather that "reboot into root" in that you mean reboot into CWM recovery. There are a few options you can try that are on the market. Modaco's of course and the zephyr team's one which is free. Theres also a more fancy one with more reboot options that supports the mobiles as well as the transformer. If your using the prime rom on xda, that has reboot recovery options built-in to the power off options when you long press the power button. It can be installed seperately through CWM if you don't want to use prime but requires a deodexed framework, so a custom rom is your only option there if you want to go that route. We need Paul to release his HR9 MCR with those reboot options built-in too.
  16. Now that honeycomb 3.2 is out for the TF101, it is out of date. I will update it when i've got time this week. I also have a working sound tweak for the built-in speakers making it louder and sounding better than default, basically I turned on SRS processing and tweaked the equaliser. Why Asus did not include these sound features in the gallery and music players is a mystery since that was one of their selling points. Maybe we should bug them about it on facebook and something will be done. Anyway will try and update it for this weekend but no guarantees.
  17. I'm using opera and I prefer it over the stock browser. It has been updated in the market and now supports flash and desktop user agent. Its a bit quicker too to load pages and best of all no typing lag with touchscreen and keyboard dock.
  18. Get Root Checker from the market to see if you have root and busybox installed. Go into your app drawer and look for Superuser. If you pass those checks then you should have root.
  19. Since there is a very easy NVFlash root/unbrick method created by Rayman and Bumble-Bee from androidroot.mobi, I noticed there isn't a GUI made for it so I created one myself. It was written using AutoIt scripting. This is now a tested and beginner friendly release, I would appreciate any feedback though. I have tried all the options in the GUI several times and have not encountered any problems so far. I have ran it successfully it on 2 different TF101's. Both of them are B40 models. There have been reports that some B70 and newer models have changed the secure boot key so that this no longer works. If you have a B70 model you can try and see if it still works and report here. This has been tested on Windows 7 32bit and 64bit only. This is root for the WW and US TF101's. The stock rom images included are extracted from 8.6.5.9, 8.6.5.7 and 8.6.5.6 official ASUS firmwares. The CWM recovery.img is v3.1.0.1 Solarnz from XDA. How to use: NOTE: Put your pad into USB debugging mode before you start. Go into Settings > Applications > Development and tick the box. 1. Once its done downloading, double click it to auto install and run. Ignore the program compatibility nags if they pop up. 2. If you've never installed the ADB/NVFlash USB drivers before then click Install USB drivers. Then plug the USB cable in to your PC. The USB drivers will confirm it is installed successfully. 3. Turn off your pad but keep it plugged in to your PC. Press and hold volume up and the power button together for a few seconds until you hear a sound from your PC if your speakers are on. The Nvidia USB driver will confirm it is installed successfully. There is no need to reboot. 4. Now that the drivers are installed you are ready to root. Press 'NVFlash Mode' to get it ready for rooting. Your pads screen will come on and display that you have entered NVFlash recovery mode. Continue with the steps. Remember to backup first before rooting if this is your first time rooting. You should copy your backup images to a safe place as doing another backup will overwrite the previous one. 5. Superuser should now be in your app drawer if you installed the Root Tools. Get Root Checker from the market to see if you have root access and busybox installed correctly. 6. If you want to un-root your tablet to the stock rom then download the Stock Images or if you made a backup and it was un-rooted you can use that instead. NOTE: Update your ROM with the official update from ASUS before you root. If you are rooted then un-root before you apply offical update. 8.6.5.9 and 8.6.5.7 WW NOTE: The GUI will self extract to the C: drive and autorun. The Stock Images are required if you want to un-root to stock and you have not made a backup. It will self extract to the Stock-Images folder.

A: Press and Hold volume down with the power button for a seconds until you see the boot loader come up on the display, then press volume up. Q: I have a B70/80 model, can I root? A: Some B70 models have been reported rootable but B80 are locked for the time being. You can try to root without harm as it will just fail if you have got a locked model. Q: Do I have to un-root to apply OTA updates? A: Yes. The update will most likely check your system for file integrity. So if you have modified any system files the update will most likely fail with the dreaded triangle and exclamation mark.
  20. Comet seem to have a bad batch. Anyway i have a NVFlash GUI tool for rooting and unrooting which i'm still testing. I might have it released by tonight if testing goes well. I have successfully unrooted using the NVFlash method. Its alot easier and quicker than the downgrading method. If you need to do it now then try the guide here xda unroot guide
  21. This cwm will only work with build 82261. There is a easier nvflash method now, if all you want is root over on xda and other forums. I might write a one click root gui for it, if there is a need for it.
  22. https://market.android.com/details?id=org.f...ets.dualbattery Its made by a xda member. There are a couple others which you can get from xda forums.
  23. I think you are experiencing the sleep of death issue, but it could be that you have a faulty button. Update to 3.1 and see if you still have this problem, unless you have already shipped it back.
