Android is Linux. And as Qrchack shows us: the possibilities are endless.

@user Nemesis: You could've just plugged it in and iTunes would've restored it.

Dont tell me i didnt tried it, smart guy. It just simply didnt worked. Giving out errors, googling which pointed me to soo many manuals, about 7-10. Thats why i did so much stuff to make it alive again.
And im happy that phone was not broken beyond repair although there was a chance that it is.

Why? Because of iTunes. I don't want to install any software on my computer in order to use my phone. Especially not iTunes.

Totally agree. If you want to drop photos and/or use phone as SD-card, you REALLY need to carry some data storage (even a floppy might help lol) with iTunes. Really comfortable, isnt it?
Or maybe you just have an Android phone with iTunes installation on it, so simply plug phone/SD-card to PC and install it

I use dinosaur-system. Mean Symbian.

If I bought new mobile phone soon, I would choose some with Android, which seems to have more freedom (what is mostly needed these times).

I prefer the Windows phone. Actually for me,it looks faster,and easier to use,even if it don't have that much apps as android/iOS.

WinPhone7 is also a great choice. It's simple and intuitive and ultra fast.

Android. Apple is a cocky company, and their shit is complicated.
I bet no one can sign up in their store for the first time without having to search it up.

Android. Even my father got iPhone, I got pissed with it, even its jailbroken. Being jailbroken is awesome. Free awesome themes and games you can't afford. But of course if you have spare money buy it. Android you can access everything like you're jailbroken. You can access your root files without downloading anything. But with iPhone you need to BUY or DOWNLOAD (if you're jailbroken.) iFile.

Installous got down, vShare is still there. I don't know. But I'm with Android.

16xx, maybe 1611 or 1604, dont really remember.

Well fail to you, sir. Site says:
Quote:
How do you activate DFU mode?
In order to put your device into DFU mode, with the iPad connected to your computer and turned on or off (it doesn't matter), you must press the "home" and "power" buttons together for EXACTLY 10 seconds at which point you must release "power" but continue to hold "home". After about 15 seconds, the device will enter DFU mode.

You think i didnt did it? I did THAT likely 5 or 6 times, and as i said thankfully iREB forced it somehow so it worked fine.
And dont act like a guy "who know how to google" talking to guy "who dont know how to google" when i said i googled a lot and tried almost everything. Otherwise thats just pathetic.

@user Nemesis: Don't get dick'y, I was just saying that restoring an iDevice is extremely easy. If it isn't - your friend fucked it up before you/he tried to reset his settings.

Apple's products are actually idiot-proof, they are so simple it can't get any easier.
I am sorry if you didn't have the mental capacity to sign up for an online based shopping service.

EDIT: Sorry for the typos.

And i dont. I bet you got now that not all the time its easy to restore it. Shit happens. Btw there is a broken sensor panel (he replaced it just before he suddenly reseted settings, but that sensor panel had a deffect and right side dont work for no reason), and he gave me the phone today with words like "here! take it! it would take about 9 bucks to buy new sensor panel and replace it, im just too busy to do it right now (i actually offered him ~17 bucks for iPhone if he would repait it himself lol) so here you go, there is all the stuff, i dont need that crap anymore, i spent too many nerves on it, its yours now".

Android.
Why?
1.If you brick it. Just make sure you have rooted or installed clockworkmod recovery and you can restore it in less than 5 minutes.

2. Android has a lot of more apps than iphone.

3.Android is much more free and open source.

4. Android phones exist in all price classes:
Cheap (100 - 200 dollars, 50 - 100 euros)
Normal price ( 200 - 400 dollars, 100 - 200 euros)
Expensive ( 400 - 600 dollars, 200 - 350 euros)

5. You can get android for almost every touch screen platform. Without any problem.

You cant run ios on an android.

That might've been the problem.

If you brick an iDevice you don't need to install anything, just plug it in and go DFU. Takes around 30 seconds.

Only screen was broken, hardware was ok. Shit happened caused to jailbreak stuff.

Sute it took me 30 second in the story above.
I also may suggest to stop argue about "Brick->Phone" because that situation is really tricky, so there is no "constant time" for recovery/restore, depends on much things.


iDevices have more apps and some of them have really better quality or even unique. Point is, in Andro you can customize almost everything, there is a lot of apps which change or extend Andro device functionality.
And it may be easier to make and optimize to iDevices because of similar hardware in them.

Maybe. Personally never had enough time to "play" with it to experience and compare that part.

Both are useless in my opinion, I prefer Symbian OS. It's great. Ubuntu Touch (?) is also going to be one of the greatest platforms available, I'm sure of that.
