RE: Jellybean 4.1.2

That sounds like a big step forward. Often wished I could use my S3 (and iPhone 4 before that) in landscape mode for homescreen - any idea when?

Samsung 55Inch TV, Marantz SR 7009 Receiver, Panasonic 460 Blu Ray player, Monitor Audio Radius R270 fronts, Apex A40 centre, Apex A10 rears, Virgin Tivo box, Sony Xperia Z3 phone + Z2 Tablet.

RE: Jellybean 4.1.2

Downloaded today on my nexus 7, works as described (though dock is on right rather than bottom as expected). Dunno if it works on phones though.

You'd have to be pretty silly to brick it. And most "bricked" phones aren't. If you can turn it on it generally aint bricked.

and, "half a braincell"? Charmed Smile

RE: Jellybean 4.1.2

It was bricked already by some stuff guy/girl playing with rooting and I could not get it to work no matter what I did.

I was ironically referring to the (misguided) opinion in some quarters that the aforementioned OSes/things need tertiary-qualified engineers to work them...

Ah. Indeed. Although I wouldn't recommend custom OS's to the average Apple user. (not counting your goodself as average of course)

You can count me if you like. I am already a pariah on so many levels now (ex Naim owner, passive speaker user, iPhone/AirPlay/iTunes user, BBC* viewer and Radio 4 listener, Dell user ... my 'sins' are endless!)

Heck, my system can even  play CDs.

I don't give a EDITED.

hehe. 

It was more aimed at the same folk that JD was alluding to.

I have 3 pairs of passives, most in daily use. I have an old Dell XPS. I LOVE the BBC. And I just re-aranged all my CDs so I can spin a disk in my old Arcam from time to time. Not keen on Radio 4 and I use DLNA often rather than the proprietary version.

 

Either way the sort of person who is scared to use an Android because it's too complicated or thinks that a degree in nuclear physics is needed to operate a Squeezebox probably shouldn't try flashing custom ROMs.

RE: Jellybean 4.1.2

How did you you manage to get the update? My Nexus 7 is still on 4.1.1 with no updates available at this time.

RE: Jellybean 4.1.2

It just appeared in the notification bar at the top, and since it contained an upgrade I wanted I went with it (unlike my iPhone and iPad which remain iOS6-less...).

RE: Jellybean 4.1.2

That's interesting, because I haven't received any notification yet, nor are any updates available. I'll give it another couple of days before considering this.
