Upgrading Cyanogenmod 6.1 RC2 to RC4

Cyanogenmod 6.1 RC4I just upgraded my Nexian Journey NX-A890 from Cyanogenmod 6.1 RC2 to Cyanogenmod 6.1 RC4. At first I was reluctant, but yesterday I finally decided to risk it because of several things. I found that the battery drained quickly when I was still using Cyanogenmod 6.1 RC2, although I don’t really remember any other bugs that I found annoying.

I remember that the battery goes from fully charged to empty in less than 12 hours which is very bad, and it was due to light usage. I don’t know how long it will last when under heavy use (gaming, browsing, multiple synced apps, etc). So I decided to risk upgrading to 6.1 RC4. I found the battery lasted a while longer although still not significant enough. Read the rest of this entry »

On a Crossroad

Nexian Journey Version ScreenshotI was considering upgrading my Android Phone Cyanogen Mod Build. As of right now, I am using Nightly Build 17. So far I am quite satisfied with the build considering that the build was an experimental one. It was very stable although it was not a recommended build for the non-technically savvy people.

I don’t think flashing your Android ROM is for every average guy, because it takes a great deal of patience and open mind. Because it involves certain risk, losing your data and settings to name a couple. I don’t even know if I want to risk trying the recently released Cyanogen Mod 6.1 RC2 or even the Cyanogen Mod Nightly Build 21. Read the rest of this entry »

Rooted Android 2.2 on Nexian Journey

My Nexian Journey Android 2.2 CyanogenMod Home ScreenI just managed too root and upgrade my Nexian Journey Android OS from 2.1 (Eclair) to 2.2 (Froyo), all thanks to this comprehensive guide on How to Upgrade Nexian Journey to Froyo by Batista Harahap. It was not an original build by the Phone Manufacturer but a Nightly Build (Experimental) by Cyanogen Mod instead.

I was reluctant to do this to my newly acquired Android because I was not so sure I want to take any risk so soon. It was the lack of space on my Android Phone internal memory that push me to jump over the edge and plunge into the waters below, figuratively speaking of course.

I found out that I can only install limited application on my Android phone because by default, OS 2.1 (Eclair) installs application (or apps) on the internal storage by default. I need to install apps into my external (SD Card) storage which has around 4GBs worth of memory compared to the around 170MB available memories of my Android phone internal storage.
