Android-wise I was an early adopter, pre-ordering a G1 back in 2007. I had it rooted and running custom ROMs before it was a one-click deal and before NANDRIOD backups were easy to do! It's definitely less scary these days.

Having since had HTC Sense and Samsung Touchwhiz skinned devices, and always ending up rooting them to run stock / Cyanogenmod ROMs, I've decided to go all Nexus and currently have a Nexus 4 & Nexus 7.

comment Comparision of video players for Android
+1 for VPlayer. These two comfortably support the widest range of file formats out of any media players I've found.

comment Why do I get “not enough space” when I copy an APK file to /system/app?
@Juri You might have seen this already, but if not then Google Alpha Rev for the s-off method for Desire, which will give you write access to the system partition within the ROM etc...

comment Is it possible to update HTC desire to 2.2 with unrooted?
You should get an OTA update to 2.2 without rooting. If you want to root to install a custom ROM then you don't need a goldcard - use unrevoked instead.

comment My sense home screen has stopped auto rotating, how do I fix it?
Are you sure it used to auto-rotate? I'm pretty certain the Sense / Rosie homescreen does not auto-rotate on any phone - it's just the slide-out keyboard that forces it.

comment Android Market won't download apps and Google Talk won't sign in after changing to @gmail.com address
May be silly question, but have you logged your phone in with the new @gmail account? I went through this grief a while back... I'm racking my brains to remember how I got past it - will let you know as soon as I do!

comment Upgrading Unrevoked Desire from Eclair to Froyo
@michael Bummer! Were you able to get back to recovery (hold volume down when you power on the phone, use volume to highlight 'recovery', power button to select)? You could try wiping your Dalvik-cache from recovery, that helped me before. Otherwise you might need to backup with Titanium, wipe, reflash then restore. I don't think it's too much hassle so as not to be worth it.

comment If I root my Android phone, will I lose all of my data?
@wawa no, it didn't wipe my phone. All it changed was 1) added custom recovery image, 2) Enabled root access with Super User White-list app.

comment Upgrading Unrevoked Desire from Eclair to Froyo
@michael You really shouldn't lose anything unless you want to switch to a non-Sense ROM. I'd really recommend going with the MoDaCo ROM if you want to stick with something close to the official HTC Sense ROM (just has a few performance improvements and customisation options). But back everything up first and you should be fine in any case. Go for it! ;)
