    My Nexus S does the weirdest thing when I'm walking home and listening to podcasts with Google Listen. Occasionally, it just jumps to another podcast. Today, it cycled quickly between three different podcasts. Usually I pull it out of my pocket, remove the headphone plug from the jack and blow into it.

    This would make sense if I had a headset with more than one button, though PowerAMP takes control of the single button on my headphones (Meelectronics SP51P), so the worst that should happen is my music starts playing instead of my podcast.

    A bit of pocket lint in my headphone jack shouldn't be causing these weird problems. The only other factors that I could think of is static caused by the cord rubbing between my sweater and jacket or having one side of the phone warmed by my leg and the other cooled by the outside air.

    Google Listen might be the problem, so I could try an alternative if there's a half-decent free app available.

    Whoa what the fuck. Now it says that sending the message failed, and I can't seem to receive any messages either: sent one from my brothers HTC.

    Edited:

    Umm ok. "Emergency calls only". No APNs listed. Mobile networks -> FI elisa, "unable to connect. try later."

    Check you APN settings so they match with what your carrier had provided.

    Seems to be my SIM card. It's just that... What the hell could happen that it SUDDENLY breaks? Like, in the middle of sending a text message. Gonna try it out in another phone.

    Edited:

    Wow. Alright. My SIM card works on my brothers phone. His card won't work on mine. I refuse to believe that the SIM card hole, whatever, would just suddenly stop working. What the fuck.

    Edited:

    Is it possible for rooting and flashing a custom ROM to do something like this?

    Also can I reset the "custom binary download" counter to zero somehow? I have a feeling it has voided my warranty.

    I feel safe that I can use VPNs to use the Internet on my phone.

    Anyone want a free vpn?

    If there's someone here from Nordic area with an unrooted GS2, I'd love you forever if you would provide me a picture of your settings' "about phone" page. I'm not hundred per cent sure of what I should download.

    .. Well, if I COULD download anything. XDA is being awfully slow on uploading their shit on a new site/server.

    I think you had the S2. To reset the counter and yellow triangle, get a USB jig or try this (if you're on ICS). If/When you do send it back for repairs, just reflash it with stock unrooted kernel/firmware and noone would be the wiser.

    Thanks, the app worked.

    Now I just need a mirror for XWKI4 stock and that multicsc.. Thing, so I can reflash it back to stock, hopefully un-voiding my warranty.

    Or XWKI8. I'm not exactly sure which one it is. Build is i8, baseband is i4.

    Should be looking at build, not baseband.

    Thanks for the affirmation, I'm downloading the right thing then.

    Also, uh.. It started working again when I did a factory reset. Weird.

    Downloading the stock firmware, will revert back to it if the messaging problem persists.

    Edited:

    Fuck it, I'll just flash back to the stock. I'll get my ICS in a week or two anyway.

    Edited:

    Alright lol. Flashed it with stock unrooted XWKI8 build and now I can't get past the install wizard thing, it keeps on crashing.

    Edited:

    Clearing cache and such helped, seems to work now. Completely stock, like right out of the shop!

    Not entirely sure, but I think its only if you have to return to the phone several times.

    It definitely wouldn't be the first time I've replaced it.

    I also have a $100 VZW gift card laying around for upgrading from my dumbphone. I just might want to get a new phone. I love WP7 but it's so bland.

    No problem!

    What version of Android do you have? "2.x.x"

    The android version matters since the rooting tools can change and might not work for all versions.

    If you have 2.2 use this guide http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1039985
    Recommend you upgrade to 2.3 and beyond if you haven't done so already.

    For 2.3.3. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1255214

    When you connect your device to your computer, on your phone, change the settings. Instead of Mass Storage, change it to the other one. There, you should be able to access stuff on the internal storage.

    I'll try that whenever my phone decides it's connected :/ Wait no that's only for Windows.
    Also I can't change the download location in any browser, and I can't make new folders in File Manager/AndroZip. It's as if the entirety of my phone's storage is nonexistent.

    I can still install apps from the Android Market.

    Edit: Hmm.. Looking at the storage settings, it says I have no SD card, but it gives me the option to erase AND unmount the SD card. This must have something to do with the ROM I have.

    Nothing's been announced about the Desire Z, but given that the hardware is very similar to the Desire HD, I'm sure someone will port a fully-functioning ICS rom
