Playing with the toys

Today I have read up on how to root my Nexus 7 and I may get it done later this evening. I have all the computer files and programs set up so all I like is a few things on the Nexus and I’ll be rooted. And I think all I need to do is to flash a new recovery software to the Nexus and add the superuser file and I’ll have it done.

The reason I decided to root it now is because when Google updated the other day it took out an app that I very much want (app ops start) and without being rooted I can’t get another program that does the same trick. After I get the Nexus rooted I will download another program, haven’t decided which one yet. You can look at the app on Google store if you want to see what it does, but basically what it does is to allow you to control the user permissions of your apps. For example a flash light app just has no need to use your contact list, and you can stop apps with silly permissions like that with control apps like mentioned above. In my mind this should have been a thing you could do from day one. Google on the other hand is about knowing more about you than your mother so it’s not a thing they would want us to have. Google is also okay with all their app makers knowing all things to. Lately there have been apps makers that have collected and sold info about their customers, just sad if you ask me 😦  . Such is …… the new electronic age!

Another reason to root now is that my Nexus is no longer under warranty so I can’t break the warranty by rooting it 😉 I guess the bottom line here is I just like to play with my toys sometimes 😯 LOL.

The weather has been just the best today. The sunrise this morning was beautiful but I only watched from bed, to lazy to get up LOL.

No exercise for today, we will give the knee some more time ….

I did go out today and have my propane tank filled, the cost is running about $20.00 for a 30 pound tank here in Q.

I will have to leave here Saturday so I will have to get my fresh water tank topped off and get the laundry done before then. I don’t think I will go far but who knows?

Night folks
