So I'm probably gonna buy this phone tomorrow because my htc one x fell and has a broken screen now. I have no warranty so I need a phone badly. My question is can a AT&T branded phone have a bad esn or imei I think its called stopping me from activating it on my account?
Going to buy an s2 tomorrow. I've been browsing the forums for quite some time to get a good feel on terminology for android phones. I am finally making the switch to a smartphone. I am fairly tech savvy, so I think I can root the phone successfully.
What are the things I should do first once I get my phone? Thanks in advance!
Hi, I successfully rooted my SGA (Froyo) using SuperOneClick. I then installed Titanium Back Up and Root Explorer. I moved some apps to sd (including Maps and Think Free Office). I removed some of the useless apps that were installed by 3. All was well.
I was wondering if there was a way for me to remove the apps that came preloaded but no functional uninstall button (twitter, facebook, amazon kindle, etc) without rooting it? I rooted my nook color successfully a few times last years, but I'd really rather not with the dell just because it really already has the functionality I was looking to get out of the nook (except these annoying apps).
I was wondering if there was a way to remove root in a custom ROM. My company will be implementing MobilIron which detects root. From the little info I've been able to find online it seems that OTA Rootkeeper and Hide My Root will not accomplish this. The device will still report it is rooted.
I'm new to the forum, and I'm hoping to stick around and participate cause I'm really into my Android (JRO03C, v. 4.1.1). Tonight I successfully rooted it, which is awesome, however I'm baffled by one thing.
It was my understanding that when you unlock / root your phone (e.g. through Nexus Root Toolkit), you lose all the data on your phone.
