Shrapnel: I find them fine( better than average ones) and I got them for like $19 which is a steal. I tried some 4 contact headphones(like the ones with Ipod's) and ended up only getting high pitched music with no voice so thats that.

Just flashed Darky's v9.0.2 and it works great, extremely happy. What modems are you telecom guys finding the best? JPY, JPA or JL2??


JL2 for sure.

Wow did you guys see the news about the PSP2 called the NGP and how there is going to be a new gaming platform that is compatible with Android. It'd be cool if we could play the games on our SGSes. The caveat is that the PSP thing for Android requires Gingerbread though.

ive been testing JL2 on telecom for a few days now. have cycled the battery twice. i have to say this is the best modem ive tried so far - standby time is phenomenal on this, 3% drain overnight, and when left on idleduring the day i got the best life ive seen yet - 93% after 7hours at work, mostly text, this is with wifi off, and 3g only enabled when i needed internet access

full charge lasted 40hours, but this was with 5+ solid rounds of empire defence (i cant stop building rocket towers!!!) which makes the phone pretty hot and eats about 7-10% battery at a time. all in all about 2.5hrs gaming, which is unusual for me, but im a bit addicted now. anyway without gaming i feel confident of exceeding 50+ hours easily, which is fantastic for me given the speed and performance of the phone. so wih "normal" use and a bit of gaming thrown in, im happy that the phone will get thru 2 days away from the charger before needing juice.

not to mention extremely fast GPS lock and satellite detection even when partially indoors, clear voice calls, 3G data and faultless wifi (have not been getting any of the wifi disconnection/seeking problems others on Darky's 9.0.2 seeem to be complaining about)

i have not tried JL3 or the other newer modems yet, i will hang on to this current combo of XXJPY base rom and JL2 modem until the next significant base rom update :) which given the pace these days is probably only a few days away ;p

its simple as hell, just drag the towers onto the screen where you want it, click to upgrade, thats it. but ive been up till almost 2am trying to get maximum points to upgrade all my weapon levels etc and unlock different "prizes"... haha. i love it. big tip - USE SLOW TOWERS to slow down pesky fast moving units and nail em with rockets!

brings me right back to the glory days of Dune II, this does :)

Damager: what good quality but not too expensive headphones is everyone using? and not the ear bud type.. doesnt matter what ear bud ones i get and even with the smallest ear bud things, they just fall out!


wasnt really happy with the volume, full volume on the default samsung headphones still not loud enough. purchased the louder volume hack from the market and there's a definite increase so happier now.



SkullCandy in-ear buds work a treat for rock. Sennheiser HD 201s are worth a look for over-ear cans for everything else. Did I mention cheap?

Cheers,
R2D2

Cheers for the feedback everyone re inexpensive/good quality headphones.

The skull candy ones look the goods and the Sennheisers as well.. $100 max is the price range so thanks for the suggestions!

Funnily enough R2D2, I already have the Senn's HD201s. The quality is definitely excellent but the overall maximum volume is lower than what you get with the standard in the box samsung headphones. Maybe the HD201s need more power to drive them? For example the HD201s need to hit about 30% before theres even the slightest volume

How do I flash the JL2 via CWM? Is it the same way you flash the ROM, i.e install zip from SD Card?

Ah this is lame. Just figured out I have a major problem with Darky's ROM. My camera won't work properly.

Any app that uses the camera crashes on launch. The main camera app works fine to takes photos, but if I try to take a video, a error comes up saying "Camera failed" :(

Any ideas on how I can fix this? Cheers.
