    I couldn't disagree more. We're not talking about navigating operating systems here and preferences between Windows and DOS. We're talking about software modifications on system partitions. The last thing a novice needs to be doing is pressing a button that is performing tasks that he has no...

    And then if his phone f*cks up he has no idea what exactly is f*cked up, how it got f*cked up and no clue how to unf*ck it. Toolkits, especially for beginners, are a lazy and dangerous way to play around with your $700 device.

    Post Nexus 6 Camera Sucks

    i think the 2 best smartphones out right now are the Nexus 6 and the Sony Xperia Z3, both of which I have. the cameras on both are excellent and the Z3 being one of the best i've seen. with both costing about the same unlocked from their manufacturers, i'd recommend either of them.

    sorry, bro. drive on my n6 is working as it should with the thumbnail preview. i'm assuming you've uninstalled, rebooted and reinstalled. only suggesting that since it may be the simplest solution, other than clearing the apps cache/data and signing in again. not sure why it's doing that to...

    Post TWRP asking for password

    you missed a step initially. after unlocking the bootloader, you MUST reboot first before flashing TWRP. to fix this, you'll need to hit cancel at the password screen, then go into wipe and do a factory reset. next, go back into wipe and press the format data button. you have to type yes to...

    I phone hopped for awhile too. Happy on all of them, just REALLY impressed with this one so far. I went from the S3 to the S4, Nexus 5, Find 7, Moto X, Moto G and G3. Grabbed this N6 on launch day. One of the lucky few.

    This guide was created before any carrier-specific devices were released. As such, there was no way to know what a carrier may have changed and/or left alone. There was no reason to say that this would work on any and every Nexus 6 when we didn't have carrier branded 6's to test it on. If...

    yup, but you may lose root and your bootloader may be re-locked if they push a bootloader update with it. just fyi. the likely (hopefully) worst case is likely that you you have to unlock it again (thus wiping your data) and you have to re-setup the phone and re-root. i cant guarantee success...
