An Android, iOS and C# developer by day and a Linux enthusiast by night. I also enjoy web development (mostly Python), video games, chess, soccer, and voiding warranties.

I currently own a Nexus 5, a Nexus 10, and a Nook HD. I generally run a slightly self-modified version of CyanogenMod on my Nexus devices.

comment Is it possible to s-off without wiping out phone memory?
This isn't enough information. The specific device you have makes a big difference.

comment Lost sound on my Xperia X8?
If everything looks correct from a software/settings perspective then I suppose you may want to consider the possibility that your speaker itself is broken. Most phones nowadays have separate speakers for media sounds and calling, so from what you described that seems possible.

comment Apply manual update on Xoom without an OTG cable
I've edited your post to indicate that the website you linked to is your own blog. Please note the FAQ section on self-promotion in the future. Also note that I've summarized the basic premise of your blog post here. Answers with unexplained links are considered less useful due to linkrot and the like, so providing a summary rather than simply a link is preferred.

comment How do I disable the “Select input method” Notification?
Do you have an external keyboard paired/plugged in or anything of that sort? That's the only time I've seen it appear, personally.

comment My EPC android 2.2 won't connect to internet
It sounds like your netbook doesn't support the USB dongle, but perhaps has a 3G radio built into it. This would be a fairly common setup, since USB modems and such are typically not supported by Android devices. What "recommended list" are you referring to regarding the dongle?

comment Do custom ROMs like CyanogenMod modify your bootloader?
@MuhammadGhandour: As Ryan noted, the easiest thing to do is probably to contact your carrier. I don't know exactly how SIM lock works on a technical level, but my understanding is that's it's built into the modem or SIM reader's firmware at some level, which is not modified by custom ROMs.

comment Can I load a ROM from a 7“ Galaxy Tab onto a 10” Galaxy Tab?
I would doubt it, but I'm not sure that you'll find a definitive answer without trying it yourself (and possibly bricking your device). I've never heard of anyone trying this.
