    Ingress? Who is playing now?

    And may have some bad news on my phone. It's starting to crap the bed and I can't figure out what's wrong. If I power it down it's a PITA to get it to boot back up. Once on, no problems though.

    There's more you'll need to know about the process and one additional piece of equipment. Feel free to shoot me a PM if you want to discuss any of it.
    Thanks, I have done so.

    If I want Ingress to work properly for me I might have to do that too.

    But to what? Not really a fan of any of the phones on Verizon right now. If I need to replace the phone, it would most likely be with another GNex. Can't really switch carriers (coverage - I've discussed this before). Don't want a subsidized phone (trying to keep unlimited data). Can't afford a new phone unsubsidized (Ingress ate my money through gasoline)... Doesn't really leave many options. lol

    Im going to try Ingress when I get home.
    As far as you phone goes and not really seeing another phone you like on vzw either dont power it down or maybe start fresh and reflash stock image .
    Thats about all I got .
    I dont see any phones I Iike to upgrade to on vzw now either and certainly not to loose my unlimited data over .

    Started playing Ingress about two weeks ago.

    How much are used Verizon GNexes going for?

    Depends. I've seen some that look like they should be in great shape for $175 shipped. Possibly cheaper if I decide to risk it on the condition.

    The issue is really odd. The power button works fine if the phone is on. It'll lock the phone no problems. Hitting it again will bring the lock screen right back up. Turn the phone off, and the power button is unresponsive. Can't boot to anything. Phone does nothing. If I shake it lightly or tap it on my knee or something (again, lightly), I can usually get it to power back on after about 5-10 attempts. Once on, resume problem-free operation. Does not seem software related. I'm wondering if it's some sort of battery issue (the battery has been acting really strange too)? New battery being delivered soon for testing. If that doesn't solve it, probably time for a new (used) phone. Unless any of you geniuses has a better idea?

    Got to level 5 a few days ago and pushing to get to level 6 this weekend. Playing Enlightened. What about you?

    Are you running stock or a custom ROM/kernel. I had some weird power-off battery drain issues with my GNex with certain ROM builds.

    AOKP/Franco. Battery life has gone way down (but part of that may be Ingress). But the phone reboots fine every single time. New development - just pulled the phone off the charger and battery dropped from fully charged to 0 almost immediately. Phone is now off again and not wanting to boot. Grrrr.... Gotta be something to do with the battery: either the battery is toast, or the connection from battery to phone is fubared.

    Actually, the phone should still boot with the battery pulled if it is plugged in, correct?

    Had to get my one x+ replaced. Have burnt through 3 SIM cards since I've had it. I keep getting low signal and it keeps giving me the no SIM card icon at the top.

    I'm not aware of any phones that will operate without a battery even if it's plugged in. Just tested it by pulling the battery out while the phone was plugged in and it powered off.

    Fortunately the GF has a GNex so I can test with her battery later. Unfortunately, I may be sans phone until then. I've got an old Droid 2 (ouch) I can use if I need a replacement, so I guess it could be worse.

    The phone tries to do something when I hit the power button. If it is plugged into the computer the PC tries to initialize it as a USB device, but quickly fails and tells me the device is no longer connected. I guess it could still be a battery issue, but I'm beginning to doubt it. Balls.

    That's scary. Sounds like it's worse than I had hoped...

    Can't believe I didn't see this. I am one of these dogs of photography of which you speak. I do almost exclusively timelapse photography. How much do you know about timelapse work, and have you done any previously? What equipment do you have already, if any? Timelapse work gets very complicated very quickly.

    I can hack portals sitting at home and in the office. There are a bunch of Level 8 players on both sides. Definitely no problem getting action points around here. Last weekend, I got 60,000 action points walking around a nice, warm museum for a few hours.

    So you've hit your inventory cap I hope?

    I think my best run (fastest AP earning) was probably about 60k in just oven an hour. Your enlightened brethren took out our farm and I rebuilt it and linked it all up immediately. The beauty of linking the farm is an abundance of keys.

    There's a lot of collaboration with other players here. Most farms don't last very long since the other side will dispatch a high level player or two to clear them out, followed by their lower level players to capture the portals for APs.

    It was close to zero degrees with the wind chill last weekend, and I have to admit I did spend quite a bit of time looking at the museum exhibits.

    I stay below the cap since I give items I don't need to other players.
