All-in-One Guide for the Sprint Galaxy Nexus

Pretty much anyone who spends enough time on XDA will eventually run into one of XDA Recognized Contributor qbking77’s videos. A member of the Android Creative Syndicate, qbking77 has become sort of an unofficial the YouTube guru for XDA, posting videos on a variety of topics for a number of devices. Subjects vary from ROM reviews, guides on flashing various ROMs, root methods, and the list goes on. Qbking77, who has over 600 videos to date, now brings Sprint Galaxy Nexus owners some video love.

With the recent release of the Galaxy Nexus on the “Now Network,” Sprint users on XDA have been plummeted into an already spirited development culture surrounding the newest Nexus. With that, users have had to create their own niche in the forums with their own ROMs and tweaks. And with so many variants, it can be tough to find the information you’re looking for.

This is what qbking77 aims to fix with his all-in-one guide for the Sprint Galaxy Nexus. Instead of posting text tutorials, qbking77 has put together 10 didactic videos for the newest Nexus owners. The videos cover all the basics, such as installing the Android SDK and device drivers on your computer. From there, each video takes you through the next step in the process, including unlocking the bootloader, rooting the phone, how to unroot the phone, and a number of other fun topics.

For all the videos, hit up the original thread and start really playing with your Nexus.

CloudPlayer: DIY HiFi Music Streaming Solution

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
