Just read that google is taking tethering apps off the market

Its true. Then I read the F.U from pda net on the market. It was great. Also wireless tether for root is gone, but Im sure there will be a third party link on any of the forums.

how often should the typical android be hard reset?

It seems I have to reset my phone every other month, because it gets really slow and buggy.
At my job, I only talk to people that have problems, so it seems like I am hard resetting androids all day, everyday. I am tempted to tell my customers to eventually expect to have to do a hard reset (not a good idea, I know).

I only use apps from the Market. And my browser only visits news sites, netflix and here.g

I have the Dinc BTW.

Live Wallpapers

Looking for two different live wallpapers - wondering if anyone had ever heard of something like it.

First, a live wallpaper that has a line of RSS scrolling on a portion of it. It would be sweet to just have news updates, status updates, market quotes, etc... scrolling in the back without the need of a widget or app.

Second, a live walpaper of a transparent engine running. Thought that would be pretty sweet.

Any thoughts?

task killer app

Verizon told me to use the task killer app to prolong the life of my battery for my Thunderbolt. The tech said in the settings there was a frequency setting ie every two hours every one hour etc. Anyone know how to find that? Or any other ideas about saving the battery? I have the extended battery and sometimes get only about 8 to 10 hours.

Fixed X

Now my question is what are some of the better roms? Ive already noticed there are not as many available as there were on the D1. Ive tried Liberty already, and Darkslide is my next one I want to try.

It says at least need to be on 2.3.32 to install. What does this mean and where do I see if I'm on it or not? and what are the benefits of it?

Android gallery.

I feel really silly for this question, but I have a Samsung Acclaim phone with U.S. Cellular and the gallery app seems to be either an older version or something USC possibly setup. It's very basic, doesn't even include basic swipe left/right to go through pictures. It is currently running Android 2.2.

Is there any way to get the actual stock android gallery app at this point? Or am I stuck with this crippled version? And I'm aware there are gallery apps on the marketplace but I've never found a decent one.

New phone contemplation...

My upgrade is due in a week or so and I cannot decide on the Incredible 2 or the Droid X2 (If it comes out on the 12th.)

I had my eyes set on the X2, but mostly unsure because there is no official news about the damn thing that I can see. Hopefully someone on here has found something that I didn't about it.

I have the Droid 1 and been happy with it. I'm too impatient for the Droid 3 (Whenever that comes out as well) and I think I'll be happy with a virtual keyboard.

I would appreciate any feedback. Thanks.
