Fucking phone.....

All I wanted was an app to work properly but to do all the stuff it can, the phone needs to be rooted otherwise you have to configure the software each time you use it.

Got all the bits of software downloaded, unzipped and installed, ran the first cmd and it didn't work as the Windows 10 drivers for my phone weren't the correct ones. Took my quite a while to find those fuckers.

Now my phone can communicate correctly with my PC I try run the rooting process only to find the phone's boot loader is blocked and I need to factory reset the fucking thing to unlock it. 1 massive backup later and the bootloader is unlocked.

Go into recovery mode to install the root stuff and the phone fucking bricks. Complete wipe of all data on the phone (thank fuck for the backup)

Head to the google nexus factory image page and find 20+ images for my phone and I don't know which fucking one I need!!!!!

Download the first one, install fails, download 3 more and they all fail with the same error. Google the error and find I need to use a different program to install 1 part of the rom!

Finally get my phone back working again. Just got to install all my fucking apps and restore all my data!

Tads, you're not old enough to have a grump, you have teenage angst.

Actually, it's to get a special gps tool working that will allow me to feed gps data into wardriving wireless hacks on my laptop.

If I drive around an area in a rough circle of between 2-5km diameter (depending on which antenna I'm using), I can plot every access point inside the circle to within 5-10m by triangulation and display on Google maps.

AlsoI already do Ingress so I'm not going to do pokemon

Grrrrr, ruddy hard disk with the boot sector on has decided to pack in.
Not got any of my useful utilities that would make it easy to recover this on any of the usb sticks I've got with me!!!!

Well it's your own fault DarkD for not being prepared.
