stopping just one app from updating...
i'm using a s3 i9300, running latest omega rom, with latest perseus kernel. i am trying to find out how to stop just one app from updating. i have researched it, and found the information to be lacking. have seen posts where they say go to play, and click settings and stop udates, but when i got to play, and hit settings, there was no such option. so if anyone can explain to me how to stop one app from updating, while allowing all the others to continue, i would truly appreciate it.

Unhappy Baseband and RIL
hi everyone, at last i rooted my GS^3 international with latest paranoid android but i do not know how to choose the correct baseband and RIL for this custom rom.

You can find the Baseband version by going into Settings > About phone > and scroll a bit down, right under "Android version".

If you disable their snyc'ing then they shouldn't run in the background if they are not neccessary.

rockchip codename?
The CM porting guide says to use ro.product.device for the codename but rockchip devices all have ro.product.device=rk30sdk even for different SoC like RK3066 and RK3188.

The codename property is always which doesn't help either.

Is there a suggested way to create a codename when the vendor does this?

Device Filter for GT-P3100
Hey guys!

This is my first post in this forum sorry if i'm such a noob.

I recently rooted my GT-P3100 (Galaxy Tab 2 7")

Before I want to manually update to Jelly Bean 4.12 (mine's currently running ICS 4.0.4), I did a lot of reading and realised that some users on this and other forums state that its important to backup my EFS using EFS Pro. I proceeded with downloading EFS pro and wanted to start backing up my EFS folder then i was told to choose a Device Filter. The default filters were:

1. Galaxy S4 (GT-I9505)
2. International LTE Variants
3. International Variants
4. SCH-I535, SGH-I747
5. SGH-I727

Being a noob, I only understood that I needed to select the right filter for my device and I have searched for a filter for my specific device but am unable to find one. Which of these 'default' filters should I use? Is there a filter specifically for my device which i need? Where can i get that filter?

Thanks in advanced!

Question Trying to buy app from different region

My apologies if this is wrong thread for this type of question.

I am trying to buy the application from link below: (add http to the from of the line, as link is blocked, as I have not written much even I am visiting this site for 2 years or so)
When I tried getting it on market - it says "This app is incompatible with all of your devices", when I try downloading it on the phone it says the app is not compatible with my region I am from (UK). I tried on two different phones.

I did some research (including xda developers) and tried Market Enabler, Market Unlocker, VPN (and combinations of those 3) but no joy so far. I tried fiddling with my google account settings but no difference what-so-ever.

Does anyone have any ideas how to get around regional "lock" and buy it?

Coby Kyros suddenly bricked.
Its a Coby Kyros with jellybean android. I rooted it with the instructions given in this thread as an answer to my questions. It all worked perfectly until now: my mom is the one who always uses it and she always tend to hold the power button long enough not just to unlock it but to force shut down it. i have told her many times not to yet she always forget. Earlier this afternoon, I used it perfectly, played a few games, and locked it. When she came home and used it, after a while, she called me and said it was already stuck at the "coby screen".

I have tried powering it down and tunring on, also tried the reset button at the back but didnt work. Btw, all it has is the power button, and the small reset button. Am i doing something wrong to factory reset it? could other measures be done? I really want to know because I think we cant go to the service centers of coby because it is rooted and will void the warranty(?)

Thank you for your answers.

Hi I believe to enter recovery mode you need to turn the device off then hold the Back and Power buttons simultaneously.
