    Wanted a bit of advice guys.

    Does anyone know of a true STOCK ICS Rom for the Galaxy S2. I don't like TouchWiz, and I found RessurectionRemixICS far too customised for my liking. But neither do I want anything cut out from it, e.g. ICS 75mb. So just a clean, stock, AOSP ROM??

    That's about as stock as you can get on the S II, but why not CM9?

    Too much blue. You're going to get a lot of burn-in with those stock colours.

    Thanks, I glanced over that, but might try it later. I don't really like customisation, it feels a bit cheap to me...

    Anyway, will also PM you soon about another matter

    I know that sounds stupid :P

    It's just that often the customisations look like they've been clearly added onto the user interface, rather then blending seamlessly into it. They look disjointed and rather odd often. I tend to steer clear off them, although CM9 looks alright...

    I think it looks pretty sucky IMO, I don't like the mascot, think I'll stick to Symbian
    Lol, how times have changed since 2009.

    I've found that AOKP adds a lot of really well done customisation tbh.

    Was the phone network on? Or was it on flight mode?
    No idea tbh.

    Over the past couple of months - I have been unable to beam my phone an app via the play store (play.google.com on PC). I'm running CM9 on SGSII - anyone know an easy solution?

    If not I'll have to wipe and go back but I'd like that as a last resort - haven't wiped my phone in a while and not really up to the effort again at the moment.

    Auto sync enabled? If so try disabling and reenabling.

    I liked the cute little Cyano-Andy that came up when I booted. Now I get a really creepy looking Cyano-robot.

    That didn't solve it unfortunately

    Just to clarify - I can log in to play.google.com, click install, choose my device and it gives me the message 'This will be installed to your app shortly' and then says 'installed' on play.google.com but it never actually installs.

    Ok guys,
    I'm due an upgrade in August, but I don't know whether to pass out on it.
    I currently have a Desire S. It's got quite old hardware, a single core chip. I'm a heavy user of my phone, so it has to do many things for me - web browsing, email, etc.

    I can't afford a quad core highend phone. So I'm thinking of getting a One S. It's only dual core... But if I get it, it will have to last me at least 2 years. That's a big decision to make. I've only had my Desire S 11 months, and I already stayed feeling the need to upgrade.
    I need a faster CPU to keep up with android demands, and a larger screen.

    The thing is, if I get the One S, how outdated will it be?

    From what I see, dual core has a huge advantage over single core.

    But quad core not so much over dual core... (Or maybe android isn't making good use of it)

    What's next for the move in smartphones? 8 cores seems unlikely... So what will be next? If nothing big comes along, will the One S and its dual core chip still be good enough to last me 2 years?

    I've played around with the One S. It's a nice device tbh. Will it still be nice in 2 years time? I doubt it, such is the speed at which the mobile world is going.

    Agreed, I have the onex and ino in 2 years time its gonna be pretty out dated and slow, same thing happened with my desire. But that is the way of the mobile world and you just gotta get on with it.

    I don't think it's that bad - I still have an original Desire and it's not any slower than it was when I got it. :dontknow: Sure it's not going to be able to run 3D games or anything, but it's still decent for everything I use it for.

    I still have an original Desire too, it does exactly what I want it to do and isn't particularly slow. I'll definitely get a HTC phone again. The only problem I have is that I have to charge it every day but that's the problem with all smart phones so it's a small price to pay really.
