20:38 AndroidFreak !! :D
20:38 AndroidFreak Do you have the schematics for the build
20:38 AndroidFreak I'd love to build that myself...
20:39 Snoothy you don't really need schematics for this :P
20:39 AndroidFreak maybe not
20:39 Snoothy http://makezineblog.files.wordpress.com/​2009/02/arduinorelay.jpg?w=400&h=361
20:39 AndroidFreak I have all the gear except the bluetooth serial thingy
20:39 Snoothy that's how to use a relay using a NPN transistor
20:40 AndroidFreak cool
20:40 AndroidFreak so, you have to have a constant connection to use it right?
20:41 AndroidFreak i.e. you have to connect each time before using it
20:41 Snoothy you have to connected to the bt to use it
20:41 Snoothy to be*
20:41 Snoothy yea
20:41 AndroidFreak does it connect automatically when your close?
20:41 Snoothy connection only takes ~3 seconds when they are paired
20:41 AndroidFreak in theory now since its not working yet
20:41 Snoothy i made it connect when i open the app
20:41 AndroidFreak ah
20:42 AndroidFreak you wrote the app also?
20:42 Snoothy yea
20:42 AndroidFreak coolio!
20:42 AndroidFreak btw.. when I have you Won the line"
20:43 AndroidFreak I haven't rooted my motoactv yet
20:43 AndroidFreak ("on the line")
20:43 AndroidFreak and there's an update available
20:43 AndroidFreak should I update before rooting?
20:43 AndroidFreak I think I read that in the thread
20:43 Snoothy doesn't matter
20:43 AndroidFreak so I could update after as well?
20:44 Snoothy i think you're flashing a specific version, i'm not quite sure
20:44 AndroidFreak ok
20:44 Snoothy i guess CEnnis91 knows
20:45 AndroidFreak ok, I'll ask him when hes online
