    Don't you guys have a debit card you have linked to your Play Store account? I didn't even know you could use phone credit to pay for apps.

    There was a man who entered a local paper's pun contest.. He sent in ten different puns, in the hope that at least one of the puns would win. Unfortunately, no pun in ten did.

    So, I've used the phone over the weekend now after it was rooted etc and must say that I quote enjoy it. The size - whilst can be a negative for some - has been an absolute god send for me. The bigger screen makes emails and documents (my phone is primarily used for business) just THAT much easier to work with. I actually view and made some changes to an excel worksheet today that I would've never dreamt of with my iPhone 5. The battery life is INCREDIBLE and I've not seen any of the call quality/ volume issues people write about. I have mild yellowing on the bottom of the screen but frankly, its negligible.

    There are however, some negatives. Not specifically about the phone itself per se, but more from a migration from iOS to Android standpoint. Hmm.. I wonder if maybe I should write a review from the standpoint of an iOS user since iPhone 1 (I did play with a Galaxy Nexus for a bit). Do you think that worth writing? Are people even vaguely interested?

    Working in the industry I certainly would be interested. I also use both platforms every day. So I'm curious to read your review

    Further to this, here are some instructions on how to install this OTA. Download the file to your PC, once it has completed downloading move it to the location where you have adb.exe and fastboot.exe located. Boot your phone into recovery (power phone off, then hold power + volume up), select advanced from the TWRP main menu then select adb sideload. Connect your phone to your PC via usb cable. Back on your PC open a command prompt from within your adb/fastboot folder (shift + right click on empty space, select open command prompt here), issue this command:

    Code:
    adb devices
    
    
    This is just to verify you have a good adb connection, it should return the device serial number in the command prompt. Back on your phone swipe the blue swipe handle to initiate adb sideload mode. On your PC go back to your open command prompt window and issue this command:

    Code:
    adb sideload cm-bacon-d22b777afa-to-0428073396-signed.zip
    
    
    In the command prompt window it'll say sending and show a counter going all the way up to 100%, once that's finished sending the sideload will initiate on your phone. On your phone screen it'll most likely say that it's skipping the md5 check because it can't find one, this is ok. It might seem like it's stalling at this point, don't panic, be patient and let it do its thing. Do not remove the usb cable or you could brick your phone! The process will complete and ask you to reboot your phone, you can remove your usb cable now.

    Upon attempting to reboot TWRP will probably prompt you to install SuperSU again because the update removes root, you can do this now or install it later. I prefer doing it later because I like to give the system a chance to boot fully once first. That's it, enjoy your update.
