Killer apps for Android?

Since there's an iPhone version, I figured I'd start a Droid version. After being handcuffed by Sprint's SERO plan for the past two years, I finally ordered my LG Optimus S last night. It'll be here in about 24 hours. So, what toys should I play with when it arrives?

This is the second time I've hard-bricked an S2. The last time was about a yr ago when I was with Sprint. They fixed it. No charge.

This S2 is the AT&T Skyrocket model that I'm using on Straight Talk.

I can fix soft-bricks.

That's weird. You must have ****ed up the bootloader somehow. Normally when that happens it's from people flashing something wrong onto the phone...

Yeah, I was surprised. I've never heard of a hard-brick resulting from a restore.

Also, I was using TWRP instead of Clockworkmod recovery.

Have you seen the video of how they repair bricks?

I just downloaded SwiftKey Flow. So far so good. I like that it is exactly like the normal SwiftKey but let's you do the Flow thing when you want to.

Yeah, I've actually done it before. It's becoming harder and harder with newer phones. Yours is an odd story though. Surprising...

Typically, I use clockworkmod, but I was using TWRP(Team Win Recovery Project) recovery.

Like I said, I've had 2 hard bricks. The 1st one was with CWM.

basically you flash a script zip and it performs several functions for you, instead of you having to do it manually.
like darkside super wipe or his cache wipe. but apparently you only need the wipe for cwm, twrp does the wiping properly

I've used Superwipe before. It's a nice tool.

I should have my phone back friday. I'll report on it.

The most frustrating thing about the S3 is that it keeps switching back to the default Samsung keyboard.



I honestly cannot stress enough how shitty that keyboard is.

I read this is fixed with the 4.1.2 software update but I haven't gotten it yet.

If you are rooted, you can install an app that will enable you to delete the default Samsung keyboard.

if they fixed a few things, it would be better than swype

-when i tap on a word to select a correction, it doesn't select the entire word, just the characters up to the point where the cursor is, making it difficult to select a new word. am i missing something?
-it doesn't let me flow in every available typing space like entering an address into Maps
