    Does this mean the Adreno 225 and (old) Mali 400 are pretty much the same? (1:26)



    That's interesting.

    So I got a Galaxy Nexus back in my hands today for the first time in about 3.5 months (after not being bothered to send it off for insurance then the insurance company taking nearly a month to process the claim) and decided to root and flash CM10 as my first ROM. Have to say I am loving it! Was a bit of a pain fiddling with the drivers and such but then using the toolkit to unlock and root was a breeze, and flashing the ROM was easy! Even installed myself a nice new custom boot animation.

    Good work! Just remember that now you've started flashing custom ROMs, you'll never stop. :yep: Titanium Backup is your friend here!

    Nice phone. Mate has one, I really quite like it. How much I'd like it even more if she let me put a custom ROM on it though...

    AOKP > AOSP, IMO. :yep:

    I think I'll be putting a different ROM on it, but I'm not sure when. I didn't even give Sense a chance last time, but I'll be busy for the next few weeks, so maybe I'll flash after that period.

    The rooting procedure looks way more complicated than it was for the Hero though

    My GS2 auto updated to ICS 4.04 yesterday. Thought I'd have to do through Kies though
    (Original post by es.c)
    It should be getting the JB update, its just a matter of when. Android 4 was released in November, Samsung got it out in May if I remember correctly, that's 6 month wait-ish. So you can expect 4.1 around December at earliest. Flash is just outdated. To be honest, I use the Google chrome browser on my phone which doesn't have flash, and I can safely say I never required it. HTML5 is the new way forward and its getting more popular. Flash will eventually be a thing of the past
    The changes in the codebase from 2.3.3 to 4.0.x we're huge hence why it took so long, look at the guys from CM as well for a comparison with how quick you can get stock onto the phone. That said now that the hard work has been done then it should be a bit quicker to get 4.1.x on the S2. Well that's the hope

    You don't have to, but I'd recommend it.

    EDIT: You can do an OTA update, just go to settings, about phone and upgrade. Though that'll upgrade it to 4.03, not 4.04.

    It said I needed a Samsung account when I tried that, and I hate signing up for things :yucky:

    I know, what the ****? The UK is meant to be supplied with ones with the S4, so how I have this, I don't know. Who do you think I should contact (first)?

    I'd ring HTC directly
