I hate the new small keyboard, way harder to text than GB keyboard. Always find myself hitting the suggested words on top when I have to reach for a top row keyboard. You would assume that a phone with a bigger screen that you would be able to text more accurately, guess not.
Also, the native e-mail client on Android still sucks after the update, you still can't make it so when you delete a message on your phone it doesn't delete it on the server. Lots of customization left out, was hoping they would address this with ICS but I guess not either. They did fix it so I could delete accounts from the e-mail app itself, which is very nice. It eliminates going all the way through the menu to the accounts page, saves about 30 seconds of your time.
hey guys. having issues with ICS update. i did root my phone some time back but all i did was install a wireless tether.
so i did as much reading on here to see what i could do to fix it.
i did a FDR and nothing.
i messed up and didn't save an orginal copy, am i hosed?
i installed the voodoo root keeper, still nothing.
i think i did a few other things but i kept trying to install ALLLLLL day!
i did see a post about downloading it directly or something, but i haven't found that link. could someone point me in the right direction?
i also have 1 question, should i even get the ICS update? the reason i ask is, all i want to do is delete the bloat ware. that's about it. i can install FoxFi, it works great. the only other app i really miss is the wired tether from Chevy1 roms. i tried Kouchs wired tether but it only last's 14 days and it doesn't work as well as the installed on that Chevy1 rom. man that app was sweet. 1 issue i have with putting a custom rom on my maxx is, Safestrap won't work. i can get bootstrap to work, but both available roms both ask for safestrap. any help there?
anyways, thanks for any help!

BB "Big Buttons Keyboard". Over the last cpl years he has made many improvements and now that's the first thing I do on a new phone is grab my "BB". I love the fact that you you can set to always show the keys in UPPER CASE which makes them so much easier to see, and of course it has a shift with indicator and lock if needed. Predictions etc and it's own library of words to add to and edit.
I have no connection with it what so ever except I would be lost with out it. ')
Take a look.
I use Swype so there isn't a problem with a small keyboard.Quote:

I agree. I'm trying different settings and all that, but when I see someone that has the razr and their battery is lasting as long as my maxx then surely there's something I can do.Quote:
