I haven't flashed or rooted my phone in a while, so I'm trying to relearn it. S3 I535VRUDNE1 Verizon. How can I root this, unlock the bootloader, and flash CM? I can't find any decent guides online.

This is an all too true statement. Friends on Facebook are mostly those whom we would have no interaction with otherwise.
 
Facebook is to “Friend” What Apple is to “Genius”

Wow!  This is a must read!

A little bit of history about this article.  My friend +Nick Eller came to me a few months ago explaining how Facebook had ruined many parts of his life.  I introduced him to my story about the exodus and how I made my exit from Facebook.  I privately messaged every single one of my "friends" on Facebook telling them I was leaving.  If they wanted my phone number I would respond via Facebook message or email.  I got three responses.

Fast forward a few years and +Nick Eller has removed Facebook from his life and his wife, +Ashleigh Eller, saw a difference in him.  She recognized that Facebook was hurting parts of her life as well.  They are both Facebook free and this article explains how much happier they are.  

This is not an article slamming Facebook or Apple.  It is simply a personal story about how some "friends" are not truly friends.  As Nick says:

"A true friend will push you to better yourself. A Facebook “friend” will gladly like a status, regardless if it is good or bad. They’ll console you, because it is faster and easier to type out a comment than to call and have a conversation about it. We have both agreed that we’re going to make the investments in people that are willing to do the same for us. I will take the handful of true friends I have over the hundreds of “friends” that I had."

Please read this story, it is amazing!

That awkward moment when you're checking your news feed on Facebook, and feel an obsessive-compulsive need to correct every grammar error in every status.

To all the hackers, why do you root your phones?

To have complete control over the device - install any apps, roms, performance tweaks, etc. that I like. If you can happily use your phone as-is (stock, unrooted), then rooting may not be for you. Also, it allows Android to be a hobby instead of just the OS that runs on my devices.

I recently downloaded Falcon Pro, and created my key to log on. After doing so, the app says that I need to verify that my date and time settings are correct, which they are. I reinstalled the app, and the same error occurred. What should I do?

My Algebra II teacher is requesting that my class create the numbers 3-20 using 6 10's and any operations we desire. I have solved every number save for sixteen. Can anyone here create 16 using 6 10's and any mathematical operations?

I hate when people post about Android and iOS, and no one in the comments knows what they're talking about in relation to the post. Do your research before you comment, and save the rest of us a few IQ points.

I recently built a pc, and booted it with Windows 7. Recently,I decided to join the Linux cult, and load Linux Mint onto my system. I downloaded the Linux Mint downloader, and ran it from within Windows. I dedicated a 35GB partition to it from the installer, and rebooted the computer afterwards. However, my computer wouldn't run Mint, because it said that there was a corrupt file in the partition, and booted me into Windows 7. I am away from the system currently, so I can't remember which file is missing. Can anyone offer advice for installing Mint correctly?

Make sure your wubi installation is removed/uninstalled first. Do that so you don't have a bunch of space wasted. Then run a live cd/dvd/usb of mint or whatever distro you choose. This will show you that your hardware will well support the distro.

Then do as recommended above. Install linux for dual boot with windows. Choose to install it alongside windows if that is what you want.

I have been flashing a multitude of different ROMs to my phone recently, and the radio stopped working. I received a replacement phone, but am cautious to root again, as I do not want to damage the radio in the phone. Advice?

Yeah had the radio stop working a few times on my SGS3.usually to do with incompatibilities with the ROM and radio firmware , I keep a selection available to flash on my sd card. There is usually a thread on XDA Developers for all available radios for your device. Custom ROMs really shouldn't be flashing these firmwares.
