[Q] Just got AT&T motox,I want to fix a few random thing that seriously bug me.
So, I picked up a moto-x.
I was pretty much happy with 4.2 other than the att contacts/ sms app but I was gonna attempt to find a workaround for that after I got the phone set up.
However, when I finally got the phone just about where I wanted AT&T forced the 4.4 update down my throat. This changed a few more things that I want to fix.
I HATE being forced to use apps I don't want to use. The beauty of the motorola to me is the black/teal (Now white -_-) interface in all the menus including texting and contacts. Now I'm stuck using that garbage from AT&T or google hangouts, neither of which I want anything to do with. I have yet to find a way to disable it without root. I was thinking I could use the app sender to send the original apps from my Electrify M, Would that work?
Since the update, Google keyboard has.... hidden... the enter key. I have to hit shift to see an enter/return key in order to start a new line of text. That is BEYOND horrible. I did some digging on line and came across a thread (which I tried to link..... ) where, what I assume are google employee, are acting if asking for a fix is the same as asking for a new feature. That kind of attitude from google is kind of lame. I do not have an option to disable the smiley key and it seems like others that previously had the option have lost it. I may also try sending swype from my electrify M if it would work. Does anyone know a way to fix that smiley issue?
So, what do you guys think? I really don't want to root my phone, but my phone is a personal thing to me, and having it set up just how I like it means a lot. So would I be better off just rooting back to 4.2/4.3?
Would it be safe to try sending the apps from my USC Electrify M? (Text, people, contacts, swype)
Thanks in advance for any advice, tips ETC
