You have to try the 4.0.4 leak man. From what I've read, it clears up every issue you are having!Yeah, my bad, sometimes I don't realize I am "thinking out loud" via typing, lol. Point was, first time I built a gaming rig, I was scared out of my *censored* because I had a $1000 processor with 940 teeny-tiny wee-little pins and trying to line it up with a $500 motherboard and it's 940 teeny-tiny itsy-bitsy pin holes. Yet I succeeded.
But, rooting my phone scares me.
SIDENOTE: I went to the VZW store on Friday, the same one where I bought my phone, and asked to talk to someone about the issues I was having (awful battery life, recent frequent reboots, etc), and showed them the screenshot I took of my BEST battery life during a day where I actually used my phone, which was 9hr24m... I showed them the average ones that are all 5-6hrs max, the "Keep Awake" bug, etc. I told them how I had talked to Customer Service over the phone five times and had been told by a "Level 2" Tech Support guy that I could go in and get a new phone (not refurbished, a BNIB GNEX) if the issues persisted.
Well, they persisted, so I went in. WHAT A BUNCH OF IDIOTS! Seriously... They kept going on about how 9hrs is "AMAZING battery life for ANY 4G device", even after telling them at least a half-dozen times that it was MY BEST, not an average!
The girl then tells me, "Well, if you want better battery life, just use the phone less"... At that point, I was getting angry, because all she had done was try to sell me a $50 extended battery and in 5 minutes had mentioned the Droid RAZR MAXX multiple times. I replied "Why in the **** would I have spent $300 CASH on a phone to NOT USE IT AT ALL??"
I asked then if I could at the very least have a new battery, to which I was told "it is not a battery issue, so no, not unless you buy the Extended Battery"...!
She then said "Well, I could let you exchange it for a new Droid RAZR or RAZR MAXX, if you want to do that...?" , and I said "No, I bought this phone because it is a Dev device, it is supported by Google and not this awful company, and unlike Motorola's latest offerings, it will not be obsolete in six months... I know that you guys are told to push the RAZR and not the Nexus, I am on plenty of Android-related forums that have VZW employees to know better... So, since you claim your manager isn't here, and you don't know anything about these phones, I will be calling Samsung and also the local Customer Service again to let them know that I was treated like a second-class citizen 7wks after buying THE flagship phone... I just watched you give someone a BRAND NEW RAZR after overhearing you talk to them and I know that the phone they had was originally bought 3 days after release!!! Yet I can't get the same?? Seriously? I will also ask to talk to someone who knows ANYTHING about these phones, because no one in here even knows how to get to "Settings" on this device!"
I have been with Verizon for a total of TWELVE YEARS (I was mistaken before when I said ten, I looked it up), and I get treated like this? What a joke! They were smiling and happy to take my money when I bought it, but now they won't even give me basic customer support... I am seriously on the verge of calling the BBB and making a complaint against the people and the specific store. It was that bad. ARGH
