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 What does “fastboot oem lock” do?
A locked bootloader on many/most devices will not allow you to flash any partition on the device unless the partition image is properly signed with the manufacturer's signing keys. On some devices I think it also disables the fastboot boot command (I recall that from the Xoom, I think).

comment Is there a music player that can play music from the Google Music Store as well as Amazon MP3?
Songs downloaded from Amazon's MP3 player app should be available to any music player on your device. They certainly are for me.

comment Failure to boot after rooting LG Optimus V and installing CM7
This isn't necessarily true. It's entirely possible to bootloop (i.e. hang at the boot splash) even if you have a perfectly valid partition setup, which is why a data wipe is generally recommended when switching ROMs.

comment Is there a way to organize the numbered MP3's from Google Play?
For what it's worth, if you download songs via a web browser or the Music Manager application to a PC they will be appropriately named and tagged (mine are, anyway). I get the impression that the "offline" feature of Play Music is intended more for pre-caching than true downloading, so they didn't really bother to do it in a way that makes the files generically useful.

Those directions instruct you to wipe the /cache partition from recovery before installation but not /data. I would try that (if you have not already), since leftover files on the /data partition are a common cause of boot problems when going from one ROM to another. Note, this is basically a factory reset. It will erase your installed apps, accounts, settings, and so forth.
