Hmm, when I have some time I can look into it a bit, but I can't guarantee anything.

Much appreciated.  Wish I had a bit more experience with Android, I'd dig myself.

This issue is annoying enough that I've given up waiting and reverted to the stock ROM. I do appreciate all your hard work LeslieAnn, but Harmonia 3 seems to be diverging a little too much from the "what Virgin should have released" credo.  I'm sure most will disagree, just some feedback.

I am happy to report that with running a rooted stock ROM and removing the unnecessary carrier installed applications I'm having a Harmonia-like experience, minus this bug I reported.  Battery life has been excellent and stability/performance is actually improved.

I wish a custom recovery wasn't necessary to get SuperSU installed; I won't be able to take further OTA's without RUU :(  But I've done it twice now and it's not too bad. I may write a small guide for this only because the information you need is spread out a bit.

Thanks and good luck! I will still keep an eye out for future improvements.

WARNING: if you update to TWRP 2.3+ you will need to update the file "update-binary" inside these zip files or you will not be able to flash them with TWRP (you will get an error with "status 2").  More info here (scroll to the 2.3.3.0 change log entry to locate the updated file). This goes even for new files created with the Kitchen, the update-binary is out of date.

really??? i don't like the whole thing! like honestly its like going to someones house or going to a family party. I get they want to know more about a worker, but its just invading privacy.
It's a false sense of security anyhow.

How much do you learn from a picture someone posted? Yes, you can get some ideas, but say you see a picture of them drinking a beer, does this mean they are an alcoholic or is this the first time they ever drank?  And why was it posted, was it normal or something special?  They could have been drinking something for a religious celebration.

Pictures may tell a thousand words, but they don't lend context.

Someone being joyous and having a good time in the pictures, can just as easily be the local rapist or pedophile.  Do you expect them to post pictures of the body in the basement?

I know this is a tangent from your original point (not wanting to share your info) but, do you really want to work for a company that cares about what you post on Facebook?

I realize not everyone has the luxury of choosing a job, but in tech at least there's no way in hell I want to work from some jack-off that cares about my Twitter ranting.  OTOH I do my due diligence and always make sure to block customers that try to follow my personal accounts.  I've created separate accounts for work.  Then again I also don't post heinous stuff regardless of which account it is :)

Don't make a mountain out of a mole hill.  HTC has a *completely* legitimate infringement beef with http://www.htcruu.com/  It used HTC's name, logo, and hosted HTC-owned software without permission.  This is *nothing* like hosting custom ROMs, this is a whole different ballgame.

HTC Evo V 4G Roms / Re: Stock RUU
« on: January 30, 2013, 07:23:17 PM »
As for a fresh rom, that just means a clean install, I.E. wiping data, system, cache and Dalvik cache.

Fresh ROM is actually a CDMA ROM:

HTC Evo V 4G Roms / Re: Stock RUU
« on: January 29, 2013, 04:06:01 PM »
Sorry, what I said isn't technically accurate, I didn't mean to be confusing.  It's true the JuopunutBear instructions say you need to be on the Stock RUU.  However I think many have completed the process using Harmonia because Harmonia is just a modified stock ROM.  It's up to you if you want to risk it.

HTC Evo V 4G Roms / Re: Stock RUU
« on: January 29, 2013, 01:08:39 PM »
RUU has NOTHING to do with S-Off.

Do you want to restore to a completely stock phone (RUU) or do you want to do S-Off?  Which is it?

HTC Evo V 4G Roms / Re: Stock RUU
« on: January 28, 2013, 03:02:31 PM »
Hello, i recently rooted my HTC V. I now need stock ruu to get s-off. What is stock ruu? also could you give me a link to the file i need to flash. THANK YOU!

Yeah, pretty sure you do not need to RUU for s-off but in case it helps:

RUU isn't "a file you need to flash".  It's an app you run from a PC that resets the phone to the stock ROM.  It will wipe out everything on the phone including root, custom recovery, and custom ROM.  You also need to lock the phone in order to do it.

Also note that if you already did the OTA update, there isn't an RUU available that works.  There are guides to fixing that of course.  Just search "EVO V RUU"...

Pulling the ROMs is SOP for lawyers, they'll take everything down during the investigation and then decide what to do.

I can easily foresee a positive outcome here, it was a bad situation to start with.

Lightning Browser / Re: The Lightning Browser

I need some input. Is it more desirable to display a "homepage" or a list of bookmarks when the browser first opens up.

Currently it just opens to google.com, so either I could add the ability to change the default page and add menu item that opens up bookmarks, or I make a new tab just open up a list of bookmarks.

And thanks tvall :D

I prefer to display a blank page because it's the fastest way to load the browser.  That is to say I always set my "home page" to "about:blank".

Battery Icon - Is there a way to get it back or is it gone forever? I like the numbered battery level icon, but these eyes are getting older. I used the tweak app to add the MIUI? bar, and that is cool, but the little battery icon had its place at a glance.
I too am starting to have a hard time seeing the battery percentage - it would be nice to have an option for the standard battery icon. I'm sure there is a way to change it, but I haven't gone that far yet...

Just flash it from Recovery, or follow my instructions to make your own:

Site discussion / Re: Question about site advertising
« on: January 20, 2013, 12:45:25 PM »
FWIW, I didn't intend my reply to be scary.  For my part if these companies are stupid enough to pay for this advertising and it keeps our internet mostly free I'm fine with it.  Why would I care of Chevy knows I visited their site?  It's not like they can contact me.  The tracking cookie is only providing your IP address and browser version...maybe OS too.  But it doesn't contain any personal information.  The only way they get personal information is if you give it to them or they buy it (meaning you gave it to someone else).

If you mean "history" in the sense of your Web browser's history list, no, websites don't have access to that.

What they use is tracking cookies:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_cookie#Tracking

  • Nordstrom's or Chevy created a cookie when you visited their site.
  • When the ad is served (hint: it's not served by VMRoms) the request contains the cookie data.
  • The ad server then decides what to send back, based on the cookie(s).
Chevy, Nordstrom, et al pay the ad company for this.

EDIT: there's some REALLY sophisticated tracking software out there like Marketo that allows the operator to observe your comings and goings. If you've downloaded a trial version, did you install it, did you activate it, do you use the forums, etc.  Tracking cookies are only one small facet, integrated solutions like Marketo really expose the power of this kind of stuff.

That applies to Gingerbread roms.

Don't understand your reply.  Are you trying to say SmarSync doesn't apply to ICS?  If so, that's no correct, I definitely have this "feature" on my EVO.

OR do you mean the fix only applies to GB roms?  I didn't post the link as if it's the fix for everything, just as a jumping off point for research, it's the same place I started.
