Edit: anyway, I'd gladly donate, but then they're using PayPal so all the money might just
get stolen by PayPaldissapear and they won't get a single dollar. So no.
I got a Samsung Galaxy S yesterday, can someone tell me how to root it, what flashing software to use and what are the best ROMs/Kernels closest to the standard ROM
So I forgot to charge my phone for a few days, so I'm on my iPod touch.
All I can say is what the hell. iOS 5 is glitchy, it's default apps crash a lot (twice now while typing this message) and worst of all it is unresponsive. I should not be seeing a visible delay between pressing a button and it happening on the touch gen 4.
I'm rediscovering why I switched to my SGS2 for everything.
Notes can join too
NoteS2 Boyz in da hood yo

In other news, CyanogenMod reached their needed goal and will be ordering the new servers shortly. Nightly builds are about to return!
Probably getting a Galaxy Nexus in the next week or so, pretty excited to dump my HTC Hero which is too slow for its own fucking software
anyway, for a definite answer, look for Advanced Task Killer (only one I know) for one that you use to kill apps yourself, and it's worth looking into Watchdog Task Manager, it monitors apps and closes the ones that hog memory/cpu
What's the point of a launcher and why should I get one?
But you still shouldn't kill apps randomly at will, as said before, it will basically make that app restart. For an example, if you kill an important system app, it would restart and it restarting basically uses up more RAM and your battery to do so. Android is not like some other operating systems.
Only kill apps that you know you don't need or is hogging your resources (CPU, RAM)
That's not 100% correct. You should only kill apps hogging CPU, not RAM. Apps that hog CPU are the ones that slow down your phone and drain your battery.
Anyways. if you don't like the launcher, you want it to look better, or if you want more options towards your launcher, then get a different one on the Android Market. But I would recommend you use the default one first, get used to moving stuff around and using folders/widgets, before lurking off into a new launcher.
Yeah, I kill the ones that drain my battery loads, the browser seems to
How can you see if somethings hogging CPU or draining the battery, recently used apps doesn't say
It is useless to kill any app that has any sort of syncing ability as it will just start itself up after some time anyways.
Worst culprit is microsoft's hotmail app.
My dad installed it on his Nexus S instead of using the default mail app (even though the default one had more features/better interface). The OS consistently reported that ~37% of his battery was being used on that app.
i always kill the browser since theres no other way to kill it, its always running
Or if your phone is slowing down, it's always good to restart your phone.
click the fucking link and see if it's legit?
