I booted up little softie ( windows ) today, for the first time in 2 months. After two and a half hours of updating the system, antivirus/anti malware and scanning the system. I am reminded of some things.

1) I wish I could kick this insecure, bloated and expensive OS out of my computer!

2) How glad I am, that I can dual boot and use a superior operating system on a daily basis!

3) I will not use game and software providers who do not support Linux, unless I have absolutely no other choice!

^^^ Darn I tried to stir the pot and my spoon broke. No agreement or disagreement. Hope I didn't offend anyone, that was not my plan.

Well nobody else said it so I will.

My name is neo!

Maybe that shows how old I am, plus the fact I never heard of either one of those sites.

And on and on. To infinity and beyond! The i727 ruled. And a lot of it is because of the users in this forum.

still my dd, all original, even the battery, runs any app from playstore.

i bought the phone 3yrs ago at costco, price was $80+tx =$90 w/3yr rogers contract, but costco had a $100 gift card for any new plan so i got the phone for free w/an extra $10 in my pocket.

i just switched from rogers monthly contract to koodo's prepaid.
more $ in my pocket, cant complain as this phone does everything i need it to do.

Although not my dd I still take it out and mess with it. It's guys like you vincom who got me into Android and from whom I learned a lot from. And many others in this forum. The i727 was my first Android phone and I can't thank the users in this forum enough for the fun journey I've had on XDA and the things I've learned.

You have more than paid for your phone! There is no way to count the number of people you've helped with and educated about this phone. That has value beyond secret ink dried on special paper!

The most stable OS I've found for the I727 is your last super lit + your gapps.

Thanks for excellent work!!

Skyrockets never die, they just need to be flashed lol

We sold my wife's Skyrocket a while back, but mine's still around here somewhere. I can't get it to flash to anything other than stock 4.1 at this point lol. No idea why, and this is a problem going back over a year that I've never been able to solve. I almost wonder if the EMMC chip is damaged. Doesn't matter, though. 4.1 stock, rooted, runs just fine on the rare occasion that I break it out and play around with it. I've kicked around the idea of making my old Skyrocket into an alarm clock that can stream music, give me a full weather breakdown, etc. It seems like a worthwhile experiment.

    I'm disappointed in my generation. Its such a disgrace, I wish we could go back to the old em' days where children respected their parents and elders and had manners. Yeah I'm 18 and I do not know much (and am still learning about life) as people who have lived in those times and are older than me. I'm not handed anything and don't ask much, if my parents won the lotto I wouldn't expect a dime from them. People take for granted little things like a roof over their heads, food to eat, and expect things to be given to them without working for it. I would write more but I don't think you would want to read a essay on what the world is becoming.. :(
