About time Orange!
Just saw that AT&T in the states was rolling out an update a few days ago, I wonder what the connection is…
Maybe EE were just embarrassed about being so late?
Anyway Samsung were so lucky… as I had just made a promise to myself that I would be going Nexus 5, as the carriers were so slow with updates.
So to recap I have had 2 updates one to 4.04 and another to 4.1.2 in the 13 months I have had the phone.
They were pushing things this time but… OK.
The plan I have been following is:
Go with a flagship phone from a successful company, who updates.
Go with a phone company that updates.
Well if the Nexus 5 is a good phone, in 11 months, Google may have another customer.
- Big hi-resolution screen with LTE.
- Removable battery
- Upgradeable storage
1 is a dealbreaker, but 2 and 3, I think I can (possibly) live without.

Create the script: chrome_tmp_cache.sh
Add the following to the script:
if test -d /tmp/chrome; then
rm -r ~/.cache/google-chrome
ln -s /tmp/chrome ~/.cache/google-chrome
Change the script permissions:
$ chmod +x ./chrome_tmp_cache.sh
Add the script to the Session and Startup > Applications Autostart:
Name: Chrome Cache
Comment: Move Chrome cache to /tmp
Copy /etc/fstab to /etc/fstab-old
edit fstab and add:
tmpfs /tmp tmpfs defaults,noatime,mode=1777 0 0
How to know if noatime or relatime is default mount option in kernel?
This should list all the options a filesystem was mounted with:
Ubuntu looks to default to relatime :-)
