Out of curiosity, has anyone tried WaveSecure? If so, what do you like about it/dislike about it? Does anyone know of or use alternatives?

Subject:Root! Woot! and My Favorite Games...
I rooted my phone using this guide and I haven't regretted a minute of it! (I rooted about...two weeks ago? Maybe a week...I don't actually remember.)

I'm running JesusFreke's 1.51 ADP build and it ROCKS. Very smooth, ability to tether my phone to my laptop (which is how I'm writing this entry right now), early cupcake update...good stuff! :-D

If you have also rooted your phone, feel free to comment with tips and tricks and cool stuff you can only do with a rooted phone!

Also - I meant to update a while back with a list of my favorite games but then I took a sabbatical from the nets. :p So real quick, here are my absolute favorite games (some of them you have to pay for but it's TOTALLY worth it):

Build-a-lot
Jewellust
Coloroid
WordUp!
Bonsai Blast

Subject:Chasy's Favorite G1 Apps
Time:12:47 pm
Tags:, ,
  • Astrid: A comprehensive To Do application.
  • Twidroid: The best Twitter app for G1!
  • ChompSMS: A nifty SMS app that includes a virtual keyboard. Supposedly, they are developing a virtual T9 keypad for it too. I *love* this app.
  • Android IRC: BEST app for IRC addicts. :) Stays running in the bg - major plus in my book. Doesn't seem to drain battery too badly.
  • Useful Switchers: One-click access to frequently used settings. (i.e. brightness, ringtone, bluetooth, and many more. Also shows battery power remaining. Extremely handy app.)
  • G-Notepad: This is a great notepad app that allows you to transfer .txt, .html and other files back and forth from phone to computer.
  • Flashlight: A simple app but MAN, is it bright! I was impressed. :)
  • DroidSans Virtual Keyboard: A must-have if you just hate having to pop your keyboard open for every little thing.
  • Dark Keys: *THIS* app is a must-have for anyone using the white G1! Hard to see your keys in daylight when that backlight comes on, right? Bind Dark Keys to a quick launch shortcut so you can turn that pesky light off any time! Or turn it back on again...
  • Shazam: One of my very favorite apps - tune it in to a song that's playing and it will tell you what it is. I love this app because I listen to the radio a lot and I'm constantly going "I love this song! I wonder what it is..." I've used this app about ten times so far with 100% accuracy.
  • Wallpaper Set & Save: I like this app because it prevents the G1 from applying that annoying filter to an image before using it as a wallpaper. Translation: Get nice, crisp backgrounds by using this app to set your wallpaper with images on your SD card.
I have lots of other apps that I like - games too - but I'll post about those some other time. :D
