02:34 MagnuSRaganroK joined #motoactv
02:35 MagnuSRaganroK anyone home?
03:31 CEnnis91_ surprisingly yes
03:35 MagnuSRaganroK wewt!
03:37 CEnnis91_ needed help with something
03:37 CEnnis91_ ?
03:37 MagnuSRaganroK sorry missed response, ive been researching an answer...seems ill have to rip my second motoactv apart this week...smh
03:38 CEnnis91_ what's the question
03:38 MagnuSRaganroK whats best way to fix no charging
03:38 CEnnis91_ (note I haven't touched my motoactv in about 2 months at this point)
03:39 MagnuSRaganroK lol
03:39 CEnnis91_ no charging?
03:39 CEnnis91_ wtf did you do to have that happen
03:39 MagnuSRaganroK hmm
03:39 MagnuSRaganroK flashing
03:39 CEnnis91_ wait
03:39 CEnnis91_ no charging or not booting because of a dead battery
03:39 MagnuSRaganroK trying to get my fb sync plugin to work again and i finally got pissed and wiped everything
03:39 MagnuSRaganroK again
03:40 MagnuSRaganroK battery died right before i flashed my system img
03:41 CEnnis91_ there's methods of getting it back to working embedded somewhere within that forum thread
03:41 CEnnis91_ factory cable would be easiest
03:41 MagnuSRaganroK so boot and is all i flashed sucessfully but i think the img may have been damaged sounds like damaged bootloader
03:41 MagnuSRaganroK imean boot.img
03:41 MagnuSRaganroK im using it
03:41 MagnuSRaganroK its on the charger right now
03:41 MagnuSRaganroK sat for 4 hrs and no go
03:42 CEnnis91_ factory cable != a normal cable
03:42 MagnuSRaganroK bootloader reads too low to flash...
03:42 MagnuSRaganroK ahh
03:42 MagnuSRaganroK lol
03:42 MagnuSRaganroK ive tried my htc,samsung,and the moto...should i just chop it and open it up
03:42 MagnuSRaganroK ?
03:43 MagnuSRaganroK was trying to avoid opeining this one...lol...but its my only watch ill use now ...ive become spoiled by the features..
03:44 CEnnis91_ do you get a bootloop?
03:44 CEnnis91_ or just the moto logo?
03:44 MagnuSRaganroK nope. no life
03:44 MagnuSRaganroK just logo
03:44 CEnnis91_ http://droidrazrroot.com/droid-razr-hac​ks/how-to-make-motorola-factory-cable/
03:44 CEnnis91_ not sure how good you are with this
03:44 MagnuSRaganroK ahh
03:44 CEnnis91_ but that's apparently how to make it
03:44 MagnuSRaganroK im inclined
03:45 MagnuSRaganroK you dont even use yours anymore?
03:45 CEnnis91_ http://shop.teamblackhat.info/Factory-style-​programming-cable-for-Motorola-FactCable.htm thats more information about it
03:45 MagnuSRaganroK or no devving on your watch anymore? lol
03:45 CEnnis91_ no time to dev anymore
03:46 MagnuSRaganroK ahh...same here
03:46 CEnnis91_ if i need to step in to make stock images i can
03:46 CEnnis91_ but i dont currently have anymore time then that
03:46 MagnuSRaganroK i was going to do that earlier and post an updated stock after all this
03:46 CEnnis91_ why
03:46 CEnnis91_ how old are my stock images at this point?
03:47 MagnuSRaganroK not old
03:47 MagnuSRaganroK but 6 updates behind
03:47 MagnuSRaganroK you already did a ton
03:47 MagnuSRaganroK i can do a little
03:47 CEnnis91_ wow 6 updates?
03:47 CEnnis91_ did they ever release the asia version
03:47 MagnuSRaganroK yeah i know right..
03:47 MagnuSRaganroK not that i have seen
03:48 CEnnis91_ me and dproldan saw hints of it on their server
03:48 CEnnis91_ that was a while ago
03:48 MagnuSRaganroK so is this device obsolete yet?
03:48 CEnnis91_ beats me lol
03:49 MagnuSRaganroK ive had mine for almost a year
03:49 MagnuSRaganroK right
03:49 CEnnis91_ it wasn't exactly top of the line when it was released
03:49 MagnuSRaganroK right but it is now for a bit
03:50 MagnuSRaganroK it was ahead of its time, not end of the line
03:50 MagnuSRaganroK there are many new startups trying to duplicate its success for a reason
03:50 CEnnis91_ eh
03:50 MagnuSRaganroK none would make a suitable replacement for me
03:50 CEnnis91_ im not sure about that
03:50 MagnuSRaganroK which do you speak of?
03:50 CEnnis91_ there is definitely a niche market for smart watches
03:51 CEnnis91_ but i dont think other companies are trying to emulate moto per-say
03:51 MagnuSRaganroK right and it started with this device
03:51 MagnuSRaganroK right not emulate
03:51 CEnnis91_ id say it really started with the ipod nano
03:51 MagnuSRaganroK yes, that is how i ended up with mine
03:51 CEnnis91_ this device is quite reminiscent of it
03:52 MagnuSRaganroK distant
03:52 MagnuSRaganroK its not better in every way
03:52 CEnnis91_ right
03:52 MagnuSRaganroK but feature wise for the money its a no brainer
03:52 CEnnis91_ i think companies are poking at different things and seeing what sticks at this point
03:53 MagnuSRaganroK i havent seen anything to my liking yet
03:53 CEnnis91_ yea, pebble was a good start thou
03:53 MagnuSRaganroK i collect watches tech and workout so this one i like
03:53 MagnuSRaganroK yess
03:53 CEnnis91_ at least the idea
03:53 CEnnis91_ not sure if theyll actually deliver
03:53 MagnuSRaganroK that one looks promising
03:53 CEnnis91_ ive also seen metawatch is doing nicely
03:54 MagnuSRaganroK i want the watch to be the device rather than a satallite
03:54 CEnnis91_ nah
03:54 MagnuSRaganroK i tried getting calling working on my moto last night but couldnt get caller to hear me
03:54 MagnuSRaganroK i know satallite with less transmissions possible for great battery life
03:54 CEnnis91_ the watch is meant for quick glance notifications
03:55 CEnnis91_ not fully featured things
03:55 MagnuSRaganroK thats what its awesome at
03:55 CEnnis91_ (like what we try to do with the motoactv)
03:55 MagnuSRaganroK right
03:55 MagnuSRaganroK im actually very happy with the native features
03:55 MagnuSRaganroK i just have a habit of tinkering cus thats what i do
03:56 CEnnis91_ yep pretty much
03:56 CEnnis91_ =)
03:56 CEnnis91_ this is why i got a GNexus
03:56 CEnnis91_ and a Nexus7
03:57 MagnuSRaganroK yep, sg3 n7 and motoactive
03:57 MagnuSRaganroK lol
03:57 MagnuSRaganroK waiting for the note 2
03:58 MagnuSRaganroK err...watiting to buy it...
03:58 MagnuSRaganroK lol
03:58 CEnnis91_ i will never get such a big device
03:58 MagnuSRaganroK lol
03:58 MagnuSRaganroK i was talking about that device 4 years ago in irc
03:58 MagnuSRaganroK now its here..
03:58 MagnuSRaganroK i just dont like carrying 3 devices to get the job done
03:59 CEnnis91_ i can get the job done just fine with my gnexus
03:59 MagnuSRaganroK primarily its my gs3 for everything but i also use the others too
03:59 MagnuSRaganroK of course, as i know i can as well
03:59 MagnuSRaganroK same thing
03:59 CEnnis91_ the nexus 7 allowed me to untether my computer from my back thou =)
03:59 CEnnis91_ which was the main reason i got it
03:59 MagnuSRaganroK just a tech junkie apparently
03:59 MagnuSRaganroK lol
04:01 MagnuSRaganroK i still carry 2 dell lattitudes aluminum  i5 and i7  15 & 17 and an i5 airbook and i7 mbp with me everywhere for work
04:01 MagnuSRaganroK the n7 and my moto are like my mobile satallites
04:01 MagnuSRaganroK :)
04:01 * CEnnis91_ looks at his old insprion 1545 with c2d and 4gb ram =(
04:02 MagnuSRaganroK they free me from 2 suitcases
04:02 MagnuSRaganroK hey im on a pink 1525 c2d ive been using for years while those machines collect dust in my truck
04:02 MagnuSRaganroK lol
04:03 CEnnis91_ right, but you have i5 and i7 options
04:03 CEnnis91_ =P
04:03 CEnnis91_ this is my only one
04:03 CEnnis91_ well that and an old aspire one as a server
04:03 MagnuSRaganroK how if you are a dev?
04:03 CEnnis91_ you dont necessarily need high end equipment to be a dev
04:03 MagnuSRaganroK i service them so i have them laying everywhere, just keep the nicest ones with me
04:04 MagnuSRaganroK understandably so
04:04 MagnuSRaganroK but it will NEVER hurt.
04:04 CEnnis91_ but yea, building android at this point is pretty much null
04:04 MagnuSRaganroK same here
04:04 CEnnis91_ it took 4-5 hours to build gingerbread
04:04 MagnuSRaganroK and thats why i went all rambo a few years back
04:04 CEnnis91_ i dont even dare try building jellybean
04:05 MagnuSRaganroK shoot my i7 desktop i built a few years back was doing gb in 14mins
04:05 MagnuSRaganroK i havent built in years either myself
04:05 MagnuSRaganroK ...life happens :D and hopefully is more important!
04:06 CEnnis91_ lol yea
04:06 MagnuSRaganroK when i see reason i will do what i always do
04:07 MagnuSRaganroK if dev for a device i own is great, i dont need to waste my time!lol
04:07 CEnnis91_ yea that's why dealing with the motoactv was so hard for me
04:08 MagnuSRaganroK whys thaht?
04:08 CEnnis91_ even with this device, its tough, because i dont really use it
04:08 CEnnis91_ for a while i was working without a device at all
04:08 MagnuSRaganroK WOW!!!
04:08 MagnuSRaganroK yes i beleive i read that
04:08 CEnnis91_ haha
04:08 MagnuSRaganroK well how do you not use it?
04:08 MagnuSRaganroK i will NEVER dev for a device i do not utilize
04:09 MagnuSRaganroK however many are very similiar
04:09 MagnuSRaganroK android is android
04:09 MagnuSRaganroK lol
04:09 CEnnis91_ i dont really have a use for it
04:09 CEnnis91_ also
04:09 CEnnis91_ it's tough to develop and not cheat when other people have already done something
04:09 MagnuSRaganroK not even the notifications? or music or anything?
04:09 MagnuSRaganroK hey i hear you there
04:10 MagnuSRaganroK thats another reason im happy in the shadows
04:10 CEnnis91_ so i wanted to see and improve my skills without the help of other's works
04:10 MagnuSRaganroK youre a cheater for evolving someone elses work
04:10 MagnuSRaganroK you code?
04:10 CEnnis91_ (of course i did still have help from [mbm])
04:10 MagnuSRaganroK thats improving
04:11 CEnnis91_ i can do some code
04:11 MagnuSRaganroK java?ruby?perl?
04:11 CEnnis91_ ive got a few patches in CM
04:11 MagnuSRaganroK nice
04:11 MagnuSRaganroK i never got that far
04:11 CEnnis91_ ive worked with java, c, lua
04:13 MagnuSRaganroK after building modding and all i only have programming left to look forward too...lol
04:13 MagnuSRaganroK ive eaten linux for the past 6 years
04:13 CEnnis91_ haha, there's always something more you can go into
04:14 MagnuSRaganroK before that i was like neo in the matrix in his old desk job before they woke him up...
04:14 MagnuSRaganroK yes, agreed
