PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless This past week and this weekend I've finally found the time to enter into the colorful world of custom Android ROMs. After figuring out just how insanely great and awesome ClockWorkMod Recovery is, I set about to figure out what the best Ice Cream Sandwich ROM is for the Galaxy SII. While the answer to that question became clear quite quickly, this answer also gave rise to a whole bunch of other questions.

Too complicated

I've always found the whole Android modding thing too complicated. For example, now my SGS is kinda bricked. What did I do, you ask? Well I rooted it using cf-root, which worked fine and then installed Cyanogenmod 7.1 via the CWM included with cf-root, following the official instructions to the letter. The result? A never-ending boot cycle. WTF!?

Now, I look forward to wasting a few days reading random bits of information from the xda forums until I figure out how to undo what the hell I have done.

What pisses me off about Android is the fact that while the hardware and choice are fantastic, the default software is shit unless you buy a Nexus Phone, and some mods may be great if you have the time, patience and technical know-how to find and understand all the random bits of information spread across the internet. And to think that all I wanted is the vanilla Android experience ... I'm so disappointed.
