can't load custom roms
May 24, 2011 @ 14:48
Went from iOS to Android a few days ago. Got the Infuse 4G.

I really like the phone except I feel like I'm definitely going to have to root it...I miss some of the jailbreak features of my iPhone so hopefully rooting will fill that hole.

Any tips on what I should do right after rooting? Like certain apps, tweaks, etc.
May 25, 2011 @ 14:25
what kind of apps were you lookin for specifically? when i had my dell streak on froyo, there wasnt much that the root had to offer
May 25, 2011 @ 15:07
I got a few things already. There aren't a lot of custom ROMs out yet for the Infuse. (fingers crossed some are made soon)

Where would I go about getting certain tweaks such as popup SMS and things of that sort? Or is that all built into the custom ROMS?
May 25, 2011 @ 17:34
Sounds like you want Handcent SMS.. best one IMO.
Visit the XDA forums for all your rooting needs.. chances are if its android, its rooted or will be by somebody in those forums.

Ay, just thinking about getting myself an android device. Samsung Galaxy S2 just launched in my country like a month ago, quite cheap nowadays. But what's like the biggest differences or benefits to Android if you have been an iPhone user for like two years? How's the app-market of Android, any better than iPhone's in terms of quality?

Plants vs Zombies and Baseball Superstars 2011.

So far those are the 2 games that got me hooked the most.. I can sit there for hours sometimes.

Does anyone know of something I can install to control music without unlocking my phone? Something similar to how on iOS you double tap the home button and it gives you control without entering your passcode. I'm rooted, if that's any consolation.


edot - I have the Samsung Infuse 4G.

I have that and my phone is rooted. I'm running the MIUI rom and it has that.. Basically almost like an iphone. Look into it, i don't know if the infuse is able to do that but i'm running it on my incredible.
Jun 07, 2011 @ 16:28
I figured out a way to do it using a different music player...hopefully when some more ROMs come out for the Infuse they'll have it built in.

ive been a long time supporter and user of Android but am say to say i may jump over to the dark side and pick up an iPhone 4. the iOS 5 coverage blew me away and i have been saying apple needed that "android type stuff" for a long ass time.

besides, my contract is up next month and none android phones out now really stike my fancy
Jun 19, 2011 @ 10:04
Just copped a samsung galaxy s 4g. this AMOLED screen is &)

Theyre not being pulled from shelves, but the line that says, "..some of which CANT be fixed with updates.." would keep me from getting that phone.
I had an LG phone in the past and yeah it had issues.
