@HondaRacer please edit this terrible thread

@Robin13897 done. But I wouldn’t say the thread was terrible in the first place :p

Does the Google play services problem still persist in this version? I didn’t upgrade from 3.7.5 because of that issue. I know there is a work around but with the work around I’m loosing the super user. I don’t want to loose the super user.

Thanks

Yes, the Problem is still there. But its easy to fix with workaround from Hondaracer. Superuser and playstore work fine for me now

Do you have a link please ?

Finally able to figure it out for the Google play service issue. Uninstall Google playservises Google play store. Install the Google installer, follow the steps and the system reboots. Once rebooted playservises will be installed and you have to install the playstore. Then open the system priviliges again and your system root will be back.

Thanks

Its Tuesday when is the new firmware coming?

As announced last tuesday with 3.7.9 release, 3.8 was released early, on saturday instead of tuesday because of the mx4 launch… So next release should come next tuesday…

Other than Playstore and Play Services, does anyone experience any other problems with this FW?

The only recurring thing I came across is being unable to set Hangouts as the default SMS app.
