Yes, one of the best features so far. It is amazing how the threaded conversations can be restored perfectly.Originally Posted by madmacs
Also, you don't have to install a custom ROM to make the OS work good. The OS is good because they make it easy to install a custom ROM. Android is all about customisation, and installing a custom ROM allows you to customise what would otherwise be considered risky settings to play around with. You install a custom ROM if you're not one of those tech idiots who don't know what they're doing. You can make your phone go faster, you can change lots of stuff when you root your phone. Android offers that choice. If you know what you're doing, you can really do wonders even with a cheap phone. If you don't know what you're doing, the stock OS works fine.
It's not abt opening up, but to further customize your phone, just like iOS, people jailbreak to get more functionality in an otherwise closed system.Originally Posted by bousozoku
In android rooting/jailbreaking, is further giving you more customization in an already customable OS. In fact, I think in android, you do not need to be rooted as most stuff can be done w/o rooting i.e installing 3rd party apps whereas in iOS you need to jailbreak in order to do that.
If you are adventurous, you should try out Darky's ROM from XDA.
If you don't know rooting and still likes to try, can try the ROM:
Flash it with Odin.
Is there any decent photography assistant app for android ?
Blood is Red for a reason. Liverpool for life.
One thing I did notice, certain theme seems to cause some problem with certain apps. My Seesmic failed to work after I applied a new theme (it was working before I applied). Fortunately, there are many twitter apps in Android, so I changed to another one. If you plan to play with theme, do take note of this.
Gingerbread is nice n fast although only still at built ver for my fone
Just collected my new Android phone - HTC Desire HD
Put next to my iPhone4, this Android won BIG in look, and size but lost on weight because it is crafted from a single body.
The software, iPhone is more user-friendly, but IMO, the Android 2.2 is much more useful and practical in the long run.
always the Light, .... always.
I am looking at Gingerbread ROM for my Nexus one. Anyone has any experience with any of the mods ? CM7 ?
Either way, CM is one of the more popular ROMs out there, so you should be safe. I'm not sure about mods based off CM, but if they don't change much stuff, they should work fine.
