Hi All - I've had my S7 just a few days and so far I'm really liking it. Still trying to figure everything out, best Apps to use, etc. I have a Samsung Transform so an Android Tablet was very appealing to me and the cost of the S7 was what really made me select it.
I got my S7 just about a week ago. So far, I really like it. Still learning all the terminology of Android and Linux. Don't know anything about "Singapore ROM" nor do know how I'd get it/install it, etc. I'll keep reading and learning.
I've had mine about 3 weeks. I love it. I have it rooted and the Singapore ROM installed. I'm learning more each day.
I'm still reading the forums and trying to decide what to do next. When people ask me what it is,
my initial reply is "It's a Texas IPhone!" Then I tell them the truth.
singapore rom, z4rooted, link2sd, clockwork mod,adw launcher (ironman theme, lol), gingerbread keyboard. used system app remover to get rid of emotion bloatware, twidroid, and home (default launcher).ready for a new rom as soon as someone gets a good working one going! tired of waiting on Huawei for one!
oh yeah, it clocks at 998!
My first PC had 640K RAM, a 25 MHz CPU, a 5 1/4 inch floppy drive, and a 20 MB hard drive, and cost $1800. Upgrading to 4MB RAM cost $500.
Look how far things went.
Now we have computing devices with 256 Megs RAM and 40,000 MB extended storage that fit in the shirt pocket, so you can "do stuff" all the time, even while driving your car! My first PC filled the trunk, almost. The only thing that hasn't improved is the PC User (most anyway.) Maybe we could 'flash' certain people with an upgraded OS? lol
I keep wondering every time I see the word rooted. Is it OK to leave the device in a rooted state, or is there some chance of malicious work happening? There might be one or two app on my device that require root access, but I probably rarely or never use those apps (like System app remover, or My Backup root)
rooting DOES expose your device to a higher level of threat than a non-rooted device, but the odds of something being done are rather small. The real threat is if you have converted your device from S-ON to S-OFF as this unlocks the security of the NAND partition and exposes your /system and ./flash partitions.
