    Samsung Galaxy Nexus' Bootloader Doesn't Like the 900MHz Frequency Band


    Even though Google and Samsung launched the volume big fix OTA for owners of the European Samsung Galaxy Nexus, it appears their is still a strange, but mostly harmless glitch in the device. For some odd reason, the phone's bootloader doesn't play nice with 900MHz frequencies near it. The video above shows the phone having continuous volume problems in bootloader mode while a 900MHz/2G device is right next to it. Now obviously, this situation shouldn't really be much of a problem in 90% of all real world settings, but it is an interesting glitch, nonetheless. Also, more than likely, once the phone gets updated bootloader code in the future, it should squash this last little bug.

    Lol very strange, almost makes you wonder what other bugs exist given this one would seem rather rare for the majority of us to ever encounter. Still though, small bugs or not, they do serve to somewhat make a fool of the device. It's sort of like the Honda robot, in all it's greatness, plummeting down a set of stairs by accident, and suddenly, not looking so great.

    wondering if it could be like the old TV's where u place a magnet near the tv and it messes up. I know some old phones had stronger speakers with a slightly larger magnet and it could be interfering with something inside the nexus....but then how would the nexus react to a car dock that uses magnets to change the screen around?

    Reminds me of a situation at work where a certain Gateway PC chassis type was incompatible with a specific revision of a Mitsumi floppy drive, but only when a certain motherboard was used. If you tried to boot from a floppy disk, there would be constant data errors reading the disk. This affected 90 PCs, and I spent weeks troubleshooting it. The end result was Gateway sending techs onsite to replace 90 floppy drives with a different brand.

    We never did figure out what caused it, the closest thing we could come up with was some sort of electrical noise affecting the read heads of the drives.

    It was the weirdest thing, a different revision of the same exact model floppy drive worked just fine. Sometimes in the world of tech, weird issues like these creep up on you.
