So am on 4.1.2 for the first time ever on a stock phone (no proper rooting instructions available yet). What do I do, and what do I get on the stock firmware until roms start coming by?

Which phone is it? Rooting instructions are usually out within a week of availability.

Just got my Xperia z from Sony world. Paid 38k for it. My most expensive phone ever by a country mile. However build quality and performance are from a different planet compared to my previous ZTE blade. Shall post photos tomorrow.

38K? Did you get some discount? Sony showroom selling lesser than street price is a surprise.

Xperia Z. Rooting instructions sound iffy at best right now. Will go stock until Sony releases 4.2 and then will probably go ahead and root.

Defy+ users here - have you tried White Rabbit ROM? How is it vis a vis Wajkiui?

I'm kinda bored of MIUI and was thinking of which ROM to try for a few days. Not too keen on JB builds. My last experience tells me they're battery hogs and laggy.

Also, if I have to flash CM7.2 then I've to downgrade to Froyo kernel right

Guys, looking for a new handset for wife,she is using samsung Wave currently on Bada OS.Looking for touch screen, her usage is normal mails, FB,WSAP,net surf a bit.
Havent tried or seen micromax handsets in friends or groups so no idea about the quality and services for this brand.Budget is aprox 10k to max extended 13K.
Screen is fine if its around 4" or lill less.There are many brands to choose from,
Lava's xolo,Lenevo,Sammy's confusing line up and on.
Please do share your inputs.

If you are considering Lava, Xolo etc I advise you to get the Micromax Canvas HD instead.
It's a great device at an equally great price (~14k).
The older Micromax canvas 2 was a big hit and recently has been upgraded to Jellybean too.

If you really want to stick to phones from the bigger brands, I advise you look at the Samsung Galaxy S Duos, Sony also has some nice android devices in the price range.

I'm not sure this is confirmed news. Will try and call a service center to see if they are even aware of this.

But planning to upgrade to JB with the Cynus T2 ROM - official from another "manufacturer" in Germany.
