Have a VZW LG G2 that I recently flash SlimKat too. I realized yesterday that GPS wasn't working. Flashed back to stock and had same issue. I tried every fix across the web but can never get a lock. My question is does the G2 have a flash counter? I'm going to take it to Verizon and see if they'll swap it out and wondering if they'll see I've messed with it.

c'mon Google.
Google has been cracking down on Android spam lately, but they've been doing a miserable job, and the latest debacle puts yours truly - more specifically Android Forums - directly under Google's shoe as they stomp recklessly through the Google Play Store like robotic bounty hunters seeking payouts at all costs.

Collecting feedback/ideas  - 
 
I looked at the website blog section but couldn't find anything. Is there a site where the ideas or feature requests are all listed? I know the dev's have us emailing support to log requests, but thought it would be nice to have a place to see what's been requested and maybe vote on the ones we like.

Love #Aviate  so far!  Here are a few ideas.
-Adjust default Aviate widgets
-Add default Aviate widgets to other spaces
-Create your own spaces
-Better way to add contacts to home screen / collections

One small issue I have is that when I am at work, the space shows up as the location I am at instead of the work space.  I have set my work address in the settings, but that does not seem to help.

Tech Q/A  - 
 
OK GNexers, my wife and I both have VZW Gnex's.  Mine is unlocked, rooted and ROM'd.  Wife's is all stock.  I'd like to root her phone to do some simple tasks, but I don't want to have to wiper her phone to unlock the bootloader.  Has anyone successfully rooted their GNex without unlocking?

Running version 7 stable on both my N7 (grouper) and GNex (toro). When I use the volume keys it adjusts the media volume and not the notification volume on the N7. Even when I'm just on the home screen and not in any media app. GNex works fine. The option in the Interface > Sound menu to control media instead of notification volume is unchecked. Tried checking and unchecking the box and rebooting. Anyone else have this issue?

Just loaded Slim-4.3.build.1.9-WEEKLY-1265 on my Nexus 7 (Grouper).  This was a fresh install.  I have a Poetic case that uses the magnet to wake and sleep the device, but it is not working now.  Anyone else have this issue?

Almost every time I click home from any app the homescreen says loading for 10-30 seconds. Anyone else experienced this issue?

Yeah.. The ram is an issue that needs to be resolved. My phone has 2 GB of ram and should not run like this on my device. I can see if I had 512 mb of ram. Seem to have gotten worse after the last update with lag.

Alright folks, I need help with moving some files.  I have a directory tree with multiple levels.  In every folder is a special folder "COPY".  I need to move any files out of this special folder up one level.  What would be the best approach?

+Hashem Masoud the wildcard won't match on dot files. Replace the 'mv' command above with

mv ./{,.}* ..

instead. You might also run into problems with a directory with so many files that the wild card won't expand.

Anyone have an issue with SlimPie randomly not responding? Currently on toro 4.3 build 1. Have had this issue since early 4.2.2. Have to lock and unlock before Pie works again.

+BJ Beier Much better random, then constant ;-) Although constant would be easier to track down & fix :-)
