General :: Facebook Home On Nexus One Just As Lock Screen
Apr 14, 2013
I've been using facebook home on my Nexus One since Friday evening and I actually really like it as a lock screen, but I lament every time I hit the home button and don't go back to the default launcher.
Can modify the facebook home apk so that the lock screen is still facebook home, but so that when swiping up to hit the 'Apps' bobble or hitting the home button, you get taken to the normal launcher. Can it be done?
I was trying to remove all the damn Facebook birthday's from my Google Calendar on my Galaxy S3. When I finally managed to do that, I now have a new app called "cover feed" and something called "Home" displaying stuff from Facebook on my lock screen!!!!
How do I get rid of this? I didn't download it, or okay it, or turn it on via my settings and now it's just making unnecessary steps every time I want to unlock my phone.
I'm loving my Nexus 5, my first Android phone. I use Pattern Lock. I want to disable Pattern Lock when I'm at my home wifi. I did some research and it looks like apps can only turn off Pattern Lock when the phone is rooted. Is this true? I don't want to root my phone and I'd rather not have to enter Pattern Lock a hundred times a day.
What i'm trying to achieve probably requires an app, and I realise there are a couple of different ways I could go about it. I'm going to deploy 30 android tablets to a classroom in the College where I work, and since I love android, i'd rather not see this little experiment fail. Through a combination of "App Lock" and a widely distributed MDM, I have been able to accomplish most of my requirements, however i'd still like to be able to lock down the home screen, in particular, remove the ability for users to change the wallpaper (I have a nightmare that this feature would be abused from day one!).
I have looked at using different launchers (tried Apex and Smart Launcher) which nicely lock down the home screen, but they still allow users to change the launcher preferences which makes that approach a bit pointless.
Is there a simple setting that will automatically disable my screen lock when I'm at home or at work? If not a setting, is there an app you recommend?
Long version: I'm fairly new to "devices". I got my first, a wifi-only Samsung tablet about 6 months ago and use it sporadically, mostly when traveling, but also it's become my semi-permanent music player at home. I got my first smart phone, a MotoX about 2 weeks ago. Love the MotoX and feel it's exceptionally well designed, easy to configure, and useful, but I have nothing to compare it to other than my wife's IPhone 5.
I have done a web search for this information. I have also searched and scanned around these forums, but didn't find anything I felt comfortable with in terms of how fussy or current the set up steps are or how current the app recommendations are. The two apps I've come across are, IIRC, called "Delayed Lock (trial or paid)" and "Unlock with WiFi".
My question is - today, mid-October 2013 - how do you recommend disabling screen lock while at certain locations. I imagine I'll be using it strictly at work or at home, both of which have wifi I connect to automatically. I might want to disable screen lock while driving, but so far have found my MotoX's Assist driving mode to work very well. I might get a Bluetooth device and at that point would probably want to disable the screen lock while that bluetooth device was connected.
Is it possible to make transparent status bar which is transparent only for lockscreen and homescreen?
How we can know from Miui, TouchWiz UX (Galaxy tab 3 7.0 only) UX 2.0,
I mean status bar is transparent on Homescreen, Lockscreen and back in all apps. [white background issue]. I think it needs some small modifications, but I don't know where... system ui smali, framework-res or android policy.jar...
Either by ROM, App, or Rooting/Otherwise, is there a way to make the lock button have multiple functions on my Galaxy Nexus? My goal is to be able to use Voice Actions from a locked phone (like in the car, for example).I noticed some posts on editing hardware buttons, but that was neither for the Galaxy Nexus nor for a lock button.
Ideally, 2 quick clicks would pull up Voice Actions from a locked phone.I guess if I could permanently have Voice Actions in the notifications section, I could drag down from a locked phone and accomplish the same thing. I use slide to unlock, so dragging down on notifications bar is still available.
I have not rooted yet but would do so just for this functionality (I'm now a corporate tool so I try to hack as little as possible these days)...
I'm new to Android, just bought a Google Nexus and When I turn it on it takes me to a screen that says My library, I don't want this. How can I have it go directly to my home screen?
When I slide my finger to go to Home Screen first thing I get is a blank screen, if I slide again I get a screen with Reccomende Play and Recommeded Apps plus the two icons I tried to put on my home screen. How do I get rid of the blank intermediate screen and how do I get rid of these Recommended things.
I come from a windows world and don't want these annoying things coming up all the time. When I load Chrome it takes me to the New Tab page, obviously I loaded this sometime previously, but how do I just get Chrome to load with a blank-page?
It seems that I have problem to leave Wifi on in order to get skype & SIP calls when the screen shutoff (black screen / idle) I changed the "wifi sleep policy " to never but still i cant get incoming calls
I tested it several time even tried to ping it but it seems that it is disconnects after the screen shutoff.
Is there a new way to rename the icon text on the Nexus One home screen?On the droid, if you hold and release, a popup window shows up with the option to rename(in addition to other things).On the Nexus One, no such pop-up happens.
I'm a new Nexus One user, when I want to shut off the phone I have to use the back button to go through everything I've done for the phone to return to the home screen, if I don't the next time I turn it on, it will go to the last used screen. Is there a way to quickly get back to the home screen and deleting the others?
I find that too often when I'm trying to scroll within a widget the system thinks I am trying to move it. So my question is how can I lock the home screen in the since that widgets can be moved/removed?
I recently got the M8 upgrading from the Galaxy Nexus. I am a design student, and I HATE, I mean HATE the current clock set up with that damn weather icon and how it all looks uneven. Are there any widgets/apps or anything which I can change this?
On my galaxy: [URL]
On my one: [URL]
Is there anyway I can change my current clock or SOMETHING. I do know that I can add a new widget page and have a new clock, but I can't make this my default lockscreen. Sliding across on the lockscreen seems pointless to me - i want this visible when i double tap my phone.
I singed into facebook and it put all my facebook contacts i unchecked it by view and stuff so i cant see them in my contact box but when i hit call on the home screen all of the facebook contacts are there how do i get them off i want to delete all facebook contacts
I have a lot of music related widgets, however, they are useless when music is not playing. Is it somehow possible (stock launcher or otherwise) to change the current home screen based on whether the music is playing?
All of a sudden my girlfriend's Nexus One is rebooting somehow. She fires up her phone, it boots just fine, after a few seconds when everything is loaded, u can scroll thru the menus etc, it seems to reboot, but real fast, the animation comes up, and 2sec later the home screen is visible again. It keeps doing this.
Any ideas? The phone is not rooted, no custom rom, just a few regular apps form the market installed, nothing fancy.
My facebook app does not show updates on the home screen. When I have e mail or text messages I get a notification sound and a number over the box or up the top but I get nothing with the face book app.I have it set to refresh every 30 mins and notifications are switched on.Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?I am using version 1.3.2.
Actually this question applies to any widget that requires data from a remote server.
The answer would be pure speculation, but how do you think the widget gets its data? For those that don't know, the widget shows a history of your friends' latest status updates.
Some answers that I can think of:
The widget polls the API directly The widget grabs data from some service that's running in the background, which polls the server Somehow Facebook implemented push on Android which I don't think exists The widget somehow detects that the user is using the screen and grabs the data on demand
