  1. Excellent piece ! For what it is worth , if somebody has been needing to merge two images , my co-workers saw notice here

  2. Jack – The Nexus should definitely be able to connect & sync over WiFi, so I’d recommend getting in touch so that one of our techs can take a closer look at what’s going on. You can call 503.243.5200 or email us at

  3. Hi !

    Does anyone have the same problem with the Galaxy Nexus, as I can’t sync by Wi-Fi ?

    I did uninstall it completely, reinstall
    and still not connecting with WI-FI. I disabled GDATA Firewall, did a complete
    Router reconfiguration, and still not connecting by WI-FI…
