Can't wait until we get some ROMs like Omega's.... stock but less bloatware, increased performance and the camera hack which I really like. I got my phone today and already rooted it haha. BTW great job with the videos and the change shortcut lockscreen video I was looking for it for hours and couldn't figure it out.

Odin says passed but cannot boot into recovery, phone boots up normally when I press home, vol up and power...
There is some timing involved. When you hold the button combo, the screen will come up with some blue text in the top left corner. At that point, let go, otherwise you will boot normal. Let go at the right time and you get recovery.

Something tells me most devs who ordered this phone opted for the 32 gb. That plus 50 dropbox storage is plenty.
Being said that's when most custom Rom work will start.
