Let us know if they fix it with an update...

Have you tried using a root app like wifi tether off of the market, or is that what you're using?

 

No, my phone isn't rooted.  I'm just using the stock hotspot app.

 

I was into rooting a lot when I had my OG Droid, mostly for overclocking. But I've really not felt a need to overclock a phone since I had the TBolt, and I actually like Sense, so I'm not looking for another ROM.  And being rooted can be a big PITA at times, like getting OTA updates for example.

My current phone is the Droid DNA, and yes, it is worth every penny and yes, that 5" 1080p screen is marvelous to behold!  Prior to that I had a TBolt and an OG Droid.

 

I also have a Nexus 7 that I love dearly.

 

Sweet. Do you happen to know if the DNA has been rooted yet?  And does it have CyanogenMod support yet?  The hardware looks great, but I wouldn't be able to stand the HTC Sense GUI.  I really prefer the stock Android look.

 

EDIT: Just saw your above post that you haven't rooted.  Glad to hear HTC Sense is working well for you.

I believe Htcdev's web bootloader unlocker works on the DNA, so I would guess that the DNA can be rooted and ROM'd.

I believe that some brave souls over at XDA have it rooted, but I don't know if there are any ROMs for it yet.

 

I may consider rooting it if there ever comes a one click method.  But I think I'll keep my ROM stock.  I guess I'm one of the few who really likes Sense...

Yeah, If I remember correctly the current root method broke something...
Actually, a lot of something's...

I keep thinking to myself "one of these days I'm going to wake up and my Nexus 4 will no longer seem amazingly sexy to me."

 

It never happens. It's such a great phone, and with the Moga controller, I don't even use my portable gaming systems anymore lol.

I have to agree. The nexus 4 looks really good. Even the galaxy nexus looks pretty sexy on the outside (at least from the front), and ever since the JB update, it's been sexy on the inside too!

Yeah it just screams "premium" inside and out. Then again, my phones before this were the Kyocera Zio, Huawei Ascend II and Samsung Exhibit II so maybe I'm just easily impressed. :] First high-end phone. The Nexus 4 launch was an absolute disaster though. Said they would be launched at midnight ET, then they said 3 a.m. ET, then it was going to be 9:00 a.m. ET for sure, and tons of people went to sleep, and I stayed up - they released at 8:30 a.m. ET instead, so tons of people who went to sleep with their alarms set for 8:55 a.m. missed out big time.

Sometimes I wish I had gotten the nexus 4, but I ended up getting a Razr HD.  It's pretty nice too.  I had to put safestrap and root it to get rid of all the stock bloatware though.

A weird thing happened when I updated my 7" Galaxy Tab 2, almost all of the bloatware on the home screens went away. I can re-add icons for what I actually use manually, so it's worked out very well. Now I can find exactly what program I want to use quickly.

That's weird. I just installed a custom rom.

My Galaxy Note broke the other day. Wouldn't turn on one morning. Fortunately it's under warranty so hopefully it'll be fixed for free. Or hopefully they'll have ran out of the original model and give me a Note 2 instead. It'll mean I can use an external DAC on my phone at last L3000.gif

Good news (sorta) for many of you.  Looks like a 3rd party developer has written a USB audio driver from scratch for Android (3.x and higher) to get USB digital audio in/out finally working.  It appears to be working on many different Android devices and USB DACs.  Unfortunately the playback is pretty limited to just choosing single tracks.  Hopefully this is just a first step to future development.

Pretty interesting stuff!

 

Well I've heard of random number or random number generator but random data to reduce lag time from the kernel or real-time OS, that is news to me.
