So ever since installing Franco Kernel, I've been having this issue where after every restart, my updated apps and uninstalled apps are reverted back. After every restart I have to update our uninstall the app again.

In the screen shots you can see multiple app folders in the /data/app location for apps that have been updated. It seems the number goes up the more times the app is updated.

I tried flashing the factory image but once I flashed Franco, it started happening again. Is this happening to anyone else? I haven't found any info yet. Thanks!

I figured as such, but it only started happening after I flashed or updated the kernel. When I flashed the factory image, I flashed Franco in place of the stock one, and it worked fine until I updated it... Gr

Thank you Google for providing the most reliable, most safe and most fun licensing/payment/whatever related to billing servers to work with. (it's sarcasm for those who don't get it)

It's unfathomable how rudimentary your whole payment/license checks work when a huge part of your revenue comes from apps that you don't even build (yes Google gets a 30% share from all our revenue just in case you didn't know).

How is it possible that:
1 - You don't update your Licensing sample code app for over 3-4 years? For noobs that are just starting on Android the code is a piece of junk, un-safe, using deprecated APIs... I can't even...
2 - Your in-app-payments lib/sample code is a piece of shit, hasn't been updated in a while and it's full of dumb coding that crashes your app. So we must waste our time debugging your own shit, listening to angry users because your app crashed, and then fixing your own code. WHY?
3 - Why is it that I get e-mails from time to time with users complaining that YOUR servers are returning a "License check error" or "unlicensed" when they bought the app?
4 - Why is it that I'm working on my own app and sometimes I get a "License check error" just out of the blue? I'm the fucking developer, can't you cross check? You have a huge Google Play Services platform with a gazillion services running on our devices (sometimes even fucking us by keeping the device awake for no reason) why don't make use of it to provide a better infrastructure for billing/payments/whatever to stop fucking us?

Google, it's not me, it's YOU. Can you just fix your shit? It's like you don't want us to spend money on you, because it seems like everything that is related to billing/payments/licenses is just plain fucked and you don't even care to fix it.

Oh and by the way, while you fix your shit, how about letting us developers download our own fucking .apk directly from the store? You know, I might want to install the app on other devices or just load the production version of my app while my local build is broken during my development process. I dunno, just a thought.

Share this if you agree, maybe someone from Google reads this somewhere on the interwebs.

Yes I'm pissed.
Plz fix, I donated.

That moment when you freak out because you accidentally deleted your device's /system partition, but then you laugh and remember that Google Nexus devices are the easiest phones to repair!

The problem with Apple's copying, is they do it after denouncing and defaming a lot of the features they are gaining this year.

When launching the 5S, Apple put out an ad about how a screen over 4" (which was almost exactly the same as the 3.5" 4S only it was thinner and taller) was against "common sense" (attempting to accurately type on those tiny keys? Yeah right lol). A year later? 4.7 and 5.5" screens Are out. Knowing this, it's ironic that the video reasons that this would have been an "obvious" move for Apple, yet Samsung was penalized for making a RECTANGULAR PHONE! What the hell else would the shape have been?!

Or about how widgets would never make it to iOS? Sharing information across any application? Apple has a history of bad mouthing, then inserting their foot in their mouth. Yet they don't get any flack for it, because their way is more "thoughtful"? I'm sorry but that excuse can only be taken so far.


And honestly, the only thing Apple really copied from Samsung is certain software features that are on the Note line. Most of the copying Apple has been doing is from Android as a whole. I can understand the video covering Apple vs. Samsung for familiarity purposes, but when it comes to Apple copying from others, Apple vs. Android would have been more relevant.

Just clean-flashed the latest JFLTE nightly and ran into lots of lag and many reboots, almost always happening when scrolling. Installing apps caused lots of freezing too. Used 8/4 PA GApps and stock kernel.

I just wanted to double-check, because the outlook didn't seem good at the time this was discussed. Are any developers planning on getting or supporting the Nexus 6? If not, how can I donate directly towards a Nexus 6 funding? Thanks!

+Steven Stratton​ most likely nobody will get an Nexus 6. I guess +Ahmed Khalil​ ( +Carbonrom​) knows the best way to donate for that purpose specifically.
+David Batty​ I dunno where you guys check for recent updates, but on our gerrit has been some recent activity...
https://review.carbonrom.org
also the most of the changes got pushed directly to our new github recently as we still needed to setup gerrit for all the new projects.

There's many misconceptions here:

Google's Nexus 5 was sold at a subsidized price from the Play Store. I believe if you bought it from a carrier is was $549. You're complaining about price, when really, you should be thanking the Gods that Google chose to cut the price of the phone at all. I'm sorry, but the people complaining about price are just completely jaded. People don't believe in quality and value anymore, all they see are numbers. But, thanks to Google not subsidizing their phones anymore, the Nexus 6 is getting tons of carrier support! I nearly crapped my pants when I found out US Cellular, a regional carrier, was going to carry it (all colors and sizes! Suck it Verizon and sprint!). And there's a huge benefit to getting the Nexus into more people's hands: an increase expectation for uniformity in Skin and App design.

Also, external storage will never come to Nexus devices because it is incredibly inconsistent. Most people have no idea where their data is actually being stored; they assume that because they have an SD Card that all of their data (even their contacts) are being stored on it. Sorry it's just not happening.

Actually, I wouldn't buy this phone for 350. It is too big for me imo. Also, you're full of crap. You definitely cannot see the pixels. Ergonomically better? Please, you can't even one hand this phone and the Nexus 5 has just fine ergonomics. Aluminum body? If you think Poly carbonate plastic is Aluminum, then I guess you can call it Aluminum. :)

Don't change your face cam policy. I completely agree with your opinions of when to use it. I find I only take the time to look at it when a situation instigates it. Keep going with your gut! That's what keeps the channel real and genuine, and what makes your videos so watchable!
