  1. I just missed a deal on Swappa for a Mint MXPE for $105! Just my luck, lol. Sent from my XT1575 using Tapatalk
  2. So it started with my navigation bar ghost-tapping like crazy. I finally figured out it wasn't an uncommon problem with the phone. Of course, I had resold the one I bought from BB last Black Friday to save money on one from Swappa. It'd still be under warranty had I kept it. I took the back off, and started taking the screws out with a T4 screwdriver, because another person said using the T3 recommended by iFixit stripped the screws. The T4 actually stripped 5 of them, and the set I bought (to again save money) didn't have a T3. I also ended up taking out the screw for the side buttons, which wasn't necessary to access digitizer connectors. I wanted to see if taping over them with electrical tape would solve the issue, like it did for someone else. I somehow managed to not lose two of the four tiny springs for the buttons. But when I went to put them back in, one jumped out. The buttons work without em, but it still bugs me. I decided to just see if insurance would cover it. They said they were sending a "better" phone, valued at "$700", since they don't make X Pures anymore. Deductible would be $99. Turns out it was the G4 Play. So I decided not to go that route. It's gonna cost $100 to fix, but Swappa has em for $120+. I wouldn't wanna get one from there again, without the extended warranty - $50. The MXPE doesn't get much support, and the only other good Androids USCC will activate are too costly/outdated. Trying to save $35 is gonna cost $100+. I know I've only got 2 options, it's not a ridiculous amount of money, and it's mostly my fault. Just had to vent and ask what someone else would do.
  3. I've been keeping my eye on those. Wanted to get one last year, instead of this one, but it didn't seem like much of an upgrade for the price. The price is a lot more appealing now. I still worry about investing more than I have to in an older phone - even though it's heavily supported yet. I'm mainly looking to cut my losses. Whether I keep or sell this phone, I'll have to get it repaired, right? $130 doesn't seem worth it at all, especially when many say replacement screens are faulty. I'm really hoping taping over the connectors or reseating em will solve it, but I doubt I'll be that lucky. I know you can't sell one in this condition on Swappa, but maybe someone would pay $100 for it elsewhere? I rely so much on the navbar, but if I had to, I could use an alternative. If it starts rapidly ghost-tapping again, though, the phone is unusable.
  4. Pixel 32gb

    Yeah, guess that's what I'm wondering. Looks like the Verizon ones can't be unlocked after the 7.1.1 update or something. Are you able to post the IMEI and SKU?
  5. Pixel 32gb

    Is it the Google edition or Verizon?
  6. Not sure if this is what you're looking for. I asked USCC before I got this phone. Apparently I missed the Pure's heyday, but couldn't let myself spend another $100 on a 6P. Sent from my XT1575 using Tapatalk
  7. Activating Unlocked G4 Play

    I see USCC sells the G4 Play, but won't activate a BYD. Apparently they blacklist by the MEID? They said (over the phone) they could do a G4 or G4 Plus, but I don't know if even those have to be bought from the manufacturer or certified sellers. Is it completely impossible, then?
  8. Activating Unlocked G4 Play

    Sorry I didn't post the link to where I bought it. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=email&A=details&Q=&sku=1274293&is=Reg. Should work with USCC. She asked if I bought it from a 3rd party or a certified (something like that) USCC seller. Then said something about my MEID not being approved. Eventually said it was because they don't activate Moto G4 Plays. But I did wonder how people did by saying the Pixel was a Nexus. Didn't know if the same sort of thing could be done with this one. Thanks for the input! I'll give it a try. Sent from my SCH-R970 using Tapatalk
  9. Sorry for asking something so amateur, but I wanna be sure. Is it possible to flash a jfltexx Rom for our model? I understand now some won't for security reasons in TWRP. But if one does, would I need to do any more? Flash a different kernel? Sent from my SCH-R970 using Tapatalk Edit: Just getting restless after seeing Turbo and RR almost getting built for us, and very few other options.
  10. Resurrection Remix *(LP&MM)* JFLTEUSC

    This is honestly the *best* news I've heard for my phone in months. Yes, I very much am as excited as you, lol. I knew not upgrading would pay off. Thank you so much! Sent from my SCH-R970 using Tapatalk
  11. Wanna use Fusion so badly, but always have problems. It's got everything. Thought this last build was working. But I got a SystemUI FC and had to reboot. Then, it'd optimize all my apps, but soft reboot before finishing. And repeat. Similar but not the same issue I always had. Dunno if it's Xposed. It's so frustrating. None of these other ROMs compare. Sent from my SCH-R970 using Tapatalk
  12. I don't think they do to the extent Slim does - all five buttons full size with long-press options, from what I remember. Gravitybox could take care of the second feature, but wasn't very smooth. I'll have to dual boot it and check again. So far, Slim's performance is making me miss Fusion's features much less.
  13. I wanna use a more featured ROM, but ironically, they don't have the customizable NavBar like Slim's. I care more about that than battery. Lol. Fusion is the only other one with it, but it's always causing me problems. Sent from my unknown using Tapatalk
  14. Dammit. I read this yesterday, glad it wasn't me. Now today, it happened. I didn't switch between LTE and 3G. Hope I don't have to do all that. Already tried the Sim with no luck.Edit: now it randomly started working. Wth. Only other problem is my keyboard crashing sometimes, and SwiftKey forgets some of my predictions. Otherwise, Fusion is awesome.
  15. I didn't get FC's until I flashed a 3rd party kernel - both Googy and Alucard. Were you guys using one? I'll also have to find a different GApps package. The latest PA ones caused FC's on 2 different ROMs.
  16. Hey bud for fusion do you need to download both files. Just curious Sent from my SCH-R970 using Tapatalk The .md5sum is only needed to verify it downloaded properly. I've got System UI fc's on Fusion, too. I accidentally downloaded the 05/13 build. But you got it on 05/14? I'll have to look for something else, anyway, then. Disappointing.
  17. Could someone tell me where App Ops is on Fusion? Shows up in Search but takes me nowhere.
  18. They got Xposed for 5.1. I haven't tried it yet. Says it's super alpha. Lol. Not all modules working, either. Eh, I'm gonna do it anyway. http://forum.xda-developers.com/xposed/super-alpha-posted-permission-xposed-t3072979
  19. https://romhut.com/roms/gr5-s4-u-s-cellular http://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-s4-sprint/development/rom-v5-1-gamerrom-5-beta-v1-4-4-sch-l20-t3069371 Looks like it has a few problems atm.
  20. Keep forgetting to flash it. Lol. Idk if 5.1 is worth giving up Xposed, but ROMs are gonna continue building for 5.1, so I should probably stick with it, right? Xposed might take quite some time. Looks like themes don't change the notification shade, either, atm.
  21. The wrong android? Are you talking about this ROM? I don't think they build for our device currently. But you can try one these. They're still CM. http://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-s4/i9505-orig-develop/rom-cyanogenmod-12-t2943934 http://fitsnugly.euroskank.com/?rom=cm12&device=jflteusc
  22. Wow, I've had issues lately. My data wouldn't connect unless I opened Mobile networks in Settings. Just open it, nothing else. Couldn't update my modem, so I ODIN'd stock and got it updated. Now when I have a phone call, I just get a blank home screen. Nothing opens, and nothing but a clean flash fixes it. So weird. Doesn't seem to be Xposed. Dunno if it'd be the theme. I'm on Euroskank's, so I'll try a different ROM, even though it's the only one I've liked. Lol, p.i.t.a.
  23. Someone said it'd work to not open Odin right away. Turn the phone off and then on into Download Mode, but not continue right away. Plug it into the computer, then proceed info Download Mode. Open Odin and flash. Also use the original cable. I couldn't get it to work. I had to Odin back to stock, then I was able to update the modem. I don't know if it's because of Lollipop. Always updated fine on KK.
  24. Turn the phone off, start it in Download Mode, plug it in, add the .bin to the Phone slot, and click Start. Forgot all about paying attention to the log. I'll have to check again.
  25. I haven't ODIN'd a radio for a while, but I had to go back to stock (MF5) to fix GPS. Now I'm back on a LP ROM, and all 3 latest radios fail for me. Followed instructions exactly. Before I went back to stock, I was on NAE. I've tried both v3.10 and 1.85. Something I'm missing?
