If you own any 5010 powder, you need to inspect it carefully (and frequently) or dispose of it.
If you have any ammo you’ve loaded with 5010, you need to do the same.
There’s a link in here to a guy who almost had his house burned down; 5010 decomposes into NOx, which turns into nitric acid, which causes a run-away event that may or may not end in your death. If you’re a paying ar15.com member, you may read the archived thread that ends in “lucky for me, I set the stuff outside and the fire department got there quickly”. Here’s the picture of his scorched porch.
Best part? She fled, no doubt to escape prosecution for having had the temerity to want to live life unmolested.
In an attempt to get my daughter’s phone to recognize the OEM charger, I updated the software on the phone using the tools on the Motorola website; she had a lock code on the phone before the upgrade. After the upgrade, her lock code and the default lock code (last four digits of the cell phone number) no longer worked; a long and fruitless call to Verizon confirmed they have no OOB way to set the code.
To spare you a long and fruitless blog entry, the code post-upgrade was 0000.
If you have one of these phones, you may have noticed the “unauthorized charger” error prevents you from charging your phone; in my daughter’s case, said charger was the OEM charger that came with the phone.
To work around this issue, put the phone in USB mass storage mode.
menu->settings & tools->tools->USB mass storage.
It should charge from any USB adapter at this point; this post is probably in violation of some hacking law.
