    I was messing around with it, and pressed the home button with the s-pen.
    there was a HUGE scratch.
    Turns out the button had a protector on it. Holy shit, that scared me.
    Also I fooled my biology teacher into thinking that my Note is an E-Reader

    In other news, all HTC phones released after September now have a bootloader unlock.

    Too bad it's still an enormous pain in the ass and absolutely impossible to flash radios, or get s-off to flash boot.img and some other stuff in CWMR.

    exactly after 15 days of having my second S2 (I could return the phone within 14 days without questions asked or any problems etc), I noticed the home button looked like it was falling apart. I was SO mad until I noticed that it was the protective foil.

    On an unrelated note - is it possible that a new wifi router causes my battery to die faster?

    Phone FINALLY shipped. LG Optimus V from Virgin Mobile.

    Planning on replacing the stock ROM with BACKside, but should I do that immediately, or take some time to get used to the phone first?

    IMO, wait some time. Get to know the phone, read up on how to properly flash stuff (and how to fix if you accidentally screw something up).. unless you're already very familiar with all of that. If you are, then go for it.

    shouldn't think so, when you have WiFi on your phone doesn't deep sleep so it drains battery as it's on the lowest freq (200mhz)

    Yeah, I lied about the playground part. But I threw the Note away.

    The dummy phone really was true. I just hadn't noticed it.

    It felt so real. Besides the screen.

    The weight especially.

    Wonder what's with the lack of 4.0.3 based ROMs for the LTE Nexus. Still eagerly awaiting the next version of ARHD.

    Nothing bad about it, just a lot of people don't know how to use it, and it will up the Custom Firmware counter iirc.

    There are a lot of useless apps on my phone that I would love to remove for more space (Until I can get a better SD card at least) Or to make it less cluttered.

    Theres a bunch of annoying Virgin Mobile LIVE/Music/ect apps on here that I will NEVER use. How can I get rid of these? I went to Uninstall Apps but the option wasn't click-able

    I follow tutorials and haven't had a problem so far. Seems to work fine if I don't go around touching things I'm not supposed to.


    BUT - I re-flashed speedmod kernel, which is supposed to have CWM included, but it doesn't show up in my app drawer (stock TW). What gives?

    Root and freeze/uninstall them using something like titanium backup or easy freezy.
