Nightly Discussion  - 
 
I was having a hard time trying to download todays mako nightly using firefox. The downloads continually failed. I'm assuming due to high traffic. So I used wget on my linux box and had it in no time. Just throwing that out there.

Sure. As I said, I'm using linux. I believe wget is installed by default on most linux distros. If not you will have to install it of course. On debain based distros:
'sudo apt-get install wget'
Once you have it installed, go to the carbonrom.org download page, find the nightly you want to grab, right click it and choose "copy link location"
Then in a terminal type 'wget'  the post the link you copied directly after it. For example:
'wget https://us1.carbonrom.org/dl/mako/nightly/CARBON-KK-NIGHTLY-20140430-0536-mako.zip'

That will start the download. You will probably see it disconnect and retry several time. I will say, however, it failed on the last flo nightly I tried to download. So it's not foolproof.

I also believe there is a version of wget for windows, but I know little to nothing about it as I only use linux at this time.

Just got my N7 back from Asus for warranty repair. Had an issue where it wouldn't charge or connect to my computers while it was powered on. If I turned it off it would charge. I could have dealed with the charging issue, but I have to be able to use adb as I like to use custom ROMs...it took a total of two weeks from the time I shipped it. Delivered today and had it rooted within the hour of unpacking it. Running carbon and all seems well...hopefully no more issues. I was able to lock it and return to stock prior sending back.
