HOWTO: Install ICSSGS RC5 on Samsung Galaxy S i9000 
Well I updated my phone to RC5 of ICSSGS released by Team Nyx. Team Nyx, I believe, has come out of what the original team ICSSGS was on the Google Code page I link to in some of my earlier HOWTOs for updating the SGS i9000.

Why they changed name and website is beyond me, I haven't bothered to search or read for an explanation so I'll just groove on it and assume any newer ICSSGS updates would be coming from Team Nyx.

SNIPPET: Samsung Galaxy S I9000, ICSSGS 4.2 "Low on Disk Space" Notification will not go away, Google Talk won't sign in and GMail will not sync or get new emails 
This post is a snippet regarding an annoying notification found in ICSSGS 4.2 where the system places an irremovable "low on disk space" notification in the notification curtain.

The following page at xda-developers.com forum provides a fix for this problem. It is a ClockWork Mod flashable (installable) ZIP file that tells the kernel to move particular data from the /datadata partition elsewhere to free up space on that partition.

I also found that my phone stopped signing into Google Talk and my GMail sync stopped working. These problems were caused by the /datadata partition filling up and were fixed when I applied the script fix.

HOWTO Samsung Galaxy S Teardown (Remove Motherboard and Main Components) 
My Galaxy S needed some cleaning so I figured why not tear it apart and document it for the Interarwebs? I have no responsibility so everyone is a winner!

The Galaxy S is much easier to pull apart compared to the HTC Desire HD A9191. Sorry for the poor photos but I usually use this phone to take my photos so I had to use the Galaxy Tab 7 (P1000). And the camera on that thing is friggen USELESS. Also notice that my phone is very dirty, because I am a concretor and it gets really dirty in my pocket. Read More...

HOWTO HTC Desire HD A9191 (Almost Complete) Teardown 
This is an [almost complete] step by step guide to tearing down an HTC Desire HD A9191 mobile phone.

Based from the video guide on YouTube at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JfatoeWbMRk
Steps with * on them mean they differ slightly from the teardown video above. Usually the difference will be noted.

This teardown details some things that are not apparent in the original teardown video because the original video uses a device that has no sticky areas on it. It is probably a demonstration model device - not a real world model.

My guide will help you to open the device, and remove all pieces except for the upper main board, and anything to do with the LCD. If you need to replace certain parts, watch the original video and use this guide. You may not need to completely tear your device apart to replace the part. Read More...
