So I needs to eat crow about aokp build 4. I usually don't back up my system setting in my backup program, I tried it when I flashed to b4 the first time and I'm fairly certain tjays what caused the issue.

I do still have the torch toggle bug from b2 however, turn torch on and if you turn the screen off or it times out the toggle ceases to function and you can't turn torch off without resetting the toggle.

Pretty much decided I am going to forgo Google Music on the phone. My connectivity is too sporadic in wild and wonderful WV to rely on the cloud and streaming - at least from my phone and I don't want to pick and chose what I have on the phone and when. I only have about 2500 items, so it's not a huge amount to have locally.

I did go ahead and set up my account and upload my stuff though. I am also going to move everything and continue to use PowerAmp. Next step is to find a decent case/arm band to keep the phone in for work out purposes.

For some reason when I tried Google Music, it sounded really bad. Like if the music was downgraded from 320 to 128 bitrate. This was while playing locally stored music.
So I just kept the standard music player on the S3.

One thing to note with Google Music. If you create a play list in it and have the track locally, it's smart enough to use the local version. Very useful in crappy coverage areas.

If you're streaming you can select high quality. Local should always be good though.

Regarding all the rumors of upcoming Nexus products, are there any somewhat reliable leaks or rumors about what they might be? Please let there be a 10" tablet using the Tegra3 chipset.

I like google music but instead of dealing with the phone app i download everythign to my pc and sync thru mindows media.

MUCH MUCH better for frequent flashers like myself or just not wanting to kill the battery with streaming.

ALSO: Poweramp is worth every penny of 4.99

Love me some GoogleMusic, even offline. I hate syncing with my computer so I just have 1 big offline playlist that syncs with the cloud whenever I feel like it.

Now I spent the money on Spotify premium and I'm loving it. Basically the same thing except my library is every song ever.

But not free.

Root, and put CyanogenMod on it. Become so jealous you get rid of your own phone and get an ELTE. Jellybean on this phone is amazing.

The only reason I didnt stick with CM10 on my Evo LTE is the camera is just not up to par with the Sense Camera. Pictures didnt look as good, couldnt do rapid fire shots anymore. That was my experience at least.

Edit: Also, it looks like Apple suing Samsung had the opposite affect than intended, as sales of the S3 increased notably after the trial. http://www.bgr.com/2012/10/03/samsun...r-apple-trial/

So after using the stock browser for a day, I learned chrome is slow as ****. Is there anything that chrome does that the stock browser doesn't do besides seeing the recent sites used on other devices?

Uh, different phone, and different build. The ELTE is using an unofficial Decks build. Apples, Oranges. And the EvoLTE is nicer hardware than the Gnex.

I miss the Sense camera too. So much that I keep a MeanROM nandroid backup that I can flash to for taking pics.

This is exactly what I did, except for the 720p video.

Get some games to show off the graphics... I'm currently enjoying Riptide GP.

the 720P video hack... I haven't looked into that yet; being that I've used the FFC on my N7 exactly once, it's not real high on my list of priorities.

I tossed this in the NFL thread because I saw it during a game on Sunday and just thought I would share it here too. As I was watching this commercial, I was dead certain that it was going to be a Samsung commercial for Apple Maps saying something along the line of "Don't worry, we still use Google Maps."

Before you flame a n00b, I asked Sky first and he said to proceed.

When you get a new Android device, what are the first five Apps you install?

I'm not looking for the "Top 5 Apps for Productivity" or "I install the top 5 most expensive apps I've bought from the Play store" - just what five key apps you couldn't live without. I must admit, the recent vote for the Nova Launcher got me thinking about this; I had never heard of it before.

And before you say "blast him with piss" my first Android phone was a T-Mobile G1, which I rooted and on which I played with many ROMs via XDA. However, my next phone was a HTC Evo 4G which I never rooted, and my current love is a GNex on Sprint, stock ROM.

My five essential apps are:

Angry Birds (whatever is new and free)
Robo Defense
Toddler Lock
Dropbox
Astro

What are yours?

1. Titanium Backup (assuming I immediately rooted, which I usually do)
2. Sportacular
3. Spotify
4. Swiftkey
5. Fast Reboot

There are probably 20 others that I use like crazy but you asked for 5
