I have not yet fully understood all it's features but my S3 is blazing fast now and I love the fact that there is no Samsung bloat ware that I was trying to get rid of.
Paranoid Android is just as fast as stock Jellybean. What I love about the ROM is the hybrid settings - custom layouts and DPI per app. The 'per app' coloring is just awesome. I get blue navigation and status bar while running FB, and it turns dark red while I run tbhp app - it is just look super cool and you feel that they are also part of the app.

How did you search in that file? it should be there. But I am not sure whether all flavors of android has to contain that.

It may crash your OS or result in infinite boot loops if not done correctly.
Whoever plays around with it, will be (has to be) sure on what they are doing. Others will be learning it the hard way, so no need of such warnings

For those of you using the Micromax A110, a new version (official) is out for it - check the Micromax A110 : All things root thread on XDA.

On reading up, I see that the following are the changes:

1. Battery(calibrated now)
2. GPS ( get locks in 5 secs) - used to take longer before
3. Display (no more eye irritation)
4. Wifi (better signal)
5. Internal memory (now feels we really have an high end device ) - this is the best of the lot!

I will be flashing the update tonight.

I have SGS3 with JB 4.1
The call log always lists messages as well. Is there a way to view only calls in the log?

Would this work on Micromax A100 I wonder? This model seems to be the unwanted orphan.

Stocks are flying off warehouses. Flipkart didn't have any stock, they only reflect the stock status of their supplier. I called them today and they mentioned their supplier is out of stock.

I just got lucky on Thursday night.

Hello Naveen,

I've ordered for for the MMX A110 and currently awaiting it's delivery. I'm not [at all] familiar with rooting and flashing, but I need to do it for 2 purposes:
a. remove unwanted applications so RAM can be free'd up.
b. Move apps install from inbuilt memory to (external) memory card.

I'm writing to only ask if you could help me (via PMs or chat elsewhere) through how to get this done? That A110 thread on XDA has run into many pages now with several updates, that I want to be too sure of what I'm doing. Mainly I don't want to brick the device.

One query: what do you mean by your comment: - "5. Internal memory (now feels we really have an high end device ) - this is the best of the lot!" ? I thought there was already about 2.05gb of internal memory.

Thanks
ajay K

Note: Apologies to the mods on the back-to-back posts, I thought the 15 minutes timeline had expired when I made this response, but seems it hadn't. If this can be merged with my immediate previous post, kindly facilitate that. Thanks.

Yes, sadly that seems to be the case. See if you can jump onto this bandwagon - if you can afford to. The action is all here.

Yes, the internal memory has been increased. Earlier, we had lesser space for installing apps. That has been increased to 1.5G now.

Also, sent you a PM

Great deal, it is THE BEST price one can buy this phone at. Only if it was also available in white.

HS18 says its soldout. A new window opens which states its out of stock.

I so much want to get my hands on this one for my fiancee. This phone is not at all available in any stores. Have checked Croma, Vijay Sales, Ezone. No one has stock and people are saying that prices are going to increase.

Thanks however its seems Karbonn quality is not as good a Micromax. My friend recently purchased a Karbonn phone worth 8k and it already started hanging within 2 weeks and the touch response is not at all good. No apps were installed nor anything loaded onto to the phone which could eat up memory.

I recently noticed that my phone is not sleeping properly, even when I'm not using the phone for long time and have all data connections turned off ( like when I'm sleeping at night )

Is this normal? The phone is the HTC Explorer and I'm running the stock ROM.
