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 non-wipe non-unlock root for Android 2.3.3
I think Gingerbreak was the main root method, which is (IIRC) what SuperOneClick uses. That might be a good one to start with if you haven't tried it yet, but I'm not positive that it will work.

comment Why is my Galaxy S notifying me about a new message when my inbox is empty?
What kind of message? An email? A text message? Better: what app are you seeing this in? Also, note that the Motorola Droid (which you tagged this with) is very different from a Galaxy S.

comment How safe is android compared to other mobile platforms?
Your phone should be secure as long as you use common sense while installing and using applications. A thousand times this. The kinds of apps they note existing "in the wild" in these studies are always absolutely trivial to spot and avoid (if you think you're getting Angry Birds without ads for free or an app full of naked ladies - you're not).

comment What do “NAND”, “ROM” and “to flash” mean?
Neither did I. I meant NAND memory, which is where "nandroid" gets its name from and is also within the realm of Android.

comment What actually happens when you swipe an app out of the recent apps list?
Going to go ahead and accept this since the reddit discussion helped me find some better search terms, and seemed to be corroborated by some posts by Dianne Hackborn which I noted in my answer. Thanks!

It sounds like the OP actually wants to know what "NAND" means, not "nandroid" (could be wrong, but that's how the question is posed).

comment How to clear blank entries from Titanium Backup (pro)?
How are you deleting the backups? If I delete a backup from Titanium's UI and then refresh the list the deleted backup is no longer listed.

comment Is it posible to change the locale of my device?
I don't think "Locale" is a separate setting anywhere. It just looks like the list title/header to me. This also sounds like it may be a duplicate of How do I add a new language?
