Dear visitors and members, with the staff having moved on to other life interests and as a result of changes in people's internet usage habits, the CodeWalrus community have migrated almost entirely to Discord, IRC and WalrusIRC and is now essentially a place where to hang out, chat about gaming, programming, music, anime, and chill. As a result, even though the CW forums will remain open for posting, for faster TI, Casio or HP calculator help and news we recommend using the bilingual TI-Planet forums instead.

We encourage everyone to join our Discord server now.

* WalrusIRC

You need to have 5 posts and not be part of restricted usergroups in order to use the WalrusIRC embedded shoutbox. However, you can also access our IRC channel called #CodeWalrus via EFnet.

Is it the KFSOWI kindle? I have one of those and it is not as complete sh*t as the older ones.
Its actually usable by some miracle?!?  O.O  :crazy:
It's a FORD one
It's an okay tablet if you can put it on cyanogenmod but this does not solve the horrible battery life, due to the signed bootloader
and crappy amazon's kernel.
I absolutely hate FireOS, it's just bad.
In some ways, it's worse than the KFSOWI and some other old Fire tablets because at least you can unlock the bootloader
and fix those issues.
Not here though...

About the iPhone 4, didn't it have exploding battery issues?
Apparently yes, someone's iphone caught fire. But even the 3GS had burning issue. (someone got his legs burned due the iphone 3GS)
I guess it doesn't help the fact that the battery is not removable.
Oh, it's quite thick too. (not as much as a dik but you no)

I'm kinda late but I lol'ed at your last sentence @gameblabla XD

Also I think the early iPhone issues were the same as many devices that used older batteries: Older batteries sometimes lacked a protection against overcharging and the protection against complete discharges was non-existent. Nowadays batteries are more safe, even though I bet letting your PS Vita or Wii U gamepad battery at 0% charge for 2 years could cause the same problem the next time you try to let it charge

I am curious if the Samsung i5510 battery was affected by this...
