    soak email

    Jeff, having been at this a long time like you, not only have I never been early on anything Moto/Android, I am always at the tail end of any general release. Tin foil on... I am rooted, grandfathered with unlimited and about due to have a contract expire. maybe they want me to get a new...

    soak email

    Never been involved in any soaking to date. Just got notification that a verizon update was available. Turned the phone off and headed back here. Been away for a while. Guessed correctly, looks like it is not coming to regular soak testers only, per se. Looks like a general roll out to me...

    Do I need to remove Forever root to get the OTA?

    Pat, Thank you most kindly for the link. very very much. I am headed out for a week of vacation, so I was gonna wrestle with the cards when I get back. I will absolutely use the format tool from the website to see if I can do a little CPR on my cards. If you do not mind me asking, which...

    Do I need to remove Forever root to get the OTA?

    Mustang, No one was recommending the FXZ per se, but Suuper's post was on the 23rd when I believe the FXZ had not been released. At that time, the HOB was the only surefire method, with the OTA for rooted folks being a crapshoot. I am not sure anyone would recommend the FXZ to 905 anymore...

    Do I need to remove Forever root to get the OTA?

    Alt, I ordered two 64 gig cards off amazon for the about 55 dollar price. I attempted to install them on 905. The first card I immediately reformated from the EXT2 format to Fat32 using a program, and the phone on 905 would no longer see it, nor any of my PC's. I took the second card and...

    Do I need to remove Forever root to get the OTA?

    Hodor, I was afraid that this would end up being hit or miss for folks. I do not know exactly how the update checks for changes, but I think a lot of us were in the same boat with forever root with perhaps small changes. In my case I used the HOB to try and save data, but I found that ICS...

    Do I need to remove Forever root to get the OTA?

    Hodor, I found one case where one gent said his did work with forever applied. It will probably be a little time before anyone can say with 100%. The file you are talking about is the mount_ext.sh file. If you did not save a .bak file of this when it was edited, you would have to edit the...

    Ics soak test has begun!!!!!!!!

    One other thing I would say about the HOB and the new users is that there are some things that you can do with his menus that are completely safe to try. Like wiping cache or just quereing the phone to get the information on your processor. These are things that will get you comfortable using...

    Ics soak test has begun!!!!!!!!

    Das, This is not directed at you per se, but the mass of folks who are going to have problems. That is if anyone can read. There are going to be bucketloads of folks who are going to have broken OTA's becuse they did forever root, but "fixed"it. That SQL'd phone settings but forgot. Erased...

    Ics soak test has begun!!!!!!!!

    Sam, Looks like I found another one for your FAQ. My Hob attempt only worked part way, as my phone was really stuck on the media update option. I had cleared my EXT SD card of media. But, it is a newer 64Gig card. I did read in some of the 64 Gig card info that ICS might have issues. I went...

    Ics soak test has begun!!!!!!!!

    sam, Thanks again. I am in the process right now of Hobing, and things are looking good. Methinks that once more folks start trying to get the OTA on rooted devices, there are going to be a lot of trainwrecks. I was fortunate in that I still had an unmolested copy of the ext-sh file that was...

    Ics soak test has begun!!!!!!!!

    Thank you sir. I am guessing you had very little sleep last night, if any, so I was trying not to ask the obvious. Doing the deed right now. This is the first moto update that I have decided to not await the OTA, or more significantly the OTA that has been root massaged by a dev. or bundled...

    Ics soak test has begun!!!!!!!!

    Sam, If you have a moment, I can't even imagine how busy your are right now. I was in the middle of HOBing with 8.1 and while the update file was being copied to my phone I decided to pop in here to see what was up. 8.2 was up, and I was in the middle of 8.1. It was little tense getting out...

    64gb SD does work in Bionic

    Josh, I am not 100% sure the card was bad. It was visible for a while, and perhaps I did not eject properly or some such thing. Might have done something wrong in the formatting program, as it was my first stab at using it. I am pretty new on Amazon, and I did not read a single review where...

    64gb SD does work in Bionic

    Oldguy, Thanks for the additional info to this old thread. I got kinda busy this summer and held off buying one. I decided to buy 2 of the cards through Amazon, and aquire the EaseUS Partition software (thanks for the heads up on that software. it looks pretty robust for free). My cards...

    Ics soak test has begun!!!!!!!!

    Quick question on root, if I may. been a little out of the loop on ICS/Moto and root. I go way back with the modding, but have been running more conservatively the last year or so. I understand the HOB method. i have always been able to avoid RSD ;^) Just curious if a program like Voodoo...

    Special Announcement: Motorola Smart Actions Developer Coming to DF

    I do have a few questions if you have the time. I have a Bionic, so no Smart Actions at this point, so perhaps these are obvious to anyone running the application. As many of the actions are location dependant, is GPS on and tracking a necessity? I immediately tended to discount any battery...

    902: Changes for the worse; Battery Life and 4G speeds

    Well my battery life as it relates to the tower connection has become insanely good. I am on a repeater here at home, and with it on (on 886/893) my phone with standard battery would be pretty much dead overnight. I tested it over the weekend mostly with the phone on in standby, and it took from...

    [APP] Review LED Notification light MOD with Light Flow App!

    I have been running this app for quite a while, and have one major complaint. I cannot find the setting to make the LED on my Bionic as big as the one on my Droid;) Seriously, it works very well, and I have had a handful of updates to it over the last several months, so the developer does stay...
