    Questions about firmwares

    Phones bought from specific carriers have specific firmwares attached to them, but most of the time they come with the earliest version and carriers (the lame ones, at least) never update to the most recent one. What exactly do you lose if you try to flash an open firmware into these type of...

    Any experience with the Galaxy S Duos?

    For all intents and purposes, it's pretty much equal to an L7, specs-wise, except that it has a smaller screen and heavier UI. Has anyone had any experience with this particular phone? Or the L7 at that?

    Issues with K9 mail (and a question about the Gmail app)

    I started using K9 just recently, and it was all good until I tried to download an attachment; when I tap on download it says that it's "impossible to download to SD" and refuses to do anything.
