General :: Galaxy Nexus Rooted - Change SMS Reply To Number?

Mar 23, 2012

Basically I'm trying to get my Wife/teens to stop using carrier text messaging without having to explain to them how to use two different applications to send texts.

Doesn't have to be Google voice, really any app that will act as the default messaging app and when texts come in over the Verizon number and they reply to the text the recipient gets the "free" text number to respond to will work - Gvoice just seemed like the easy choice.

What I'm looking to do is change the reply-to number that gets sent to text message recipients from the default messaging app, Go SMS or Handcent SMS. What I do NOT want to do is have two separate text messaging apps. I want all texts to come from one application.

The idea here is to avoid paying Verizon text messaging charges and eventually block carrier text messaging altogether by using Google voice to send/receive all SMS.

Ideally this is how it would work - When a friend sends me a txt using my Verizon number I get a notification. I click reply and then press send and one of two things happens:

1. Instead of sending the text over Verizon's network the text automatically sends it through Google voice and my friend sees my Google voice number and replies to it, essentially encouraging them to use the new phone number but seamless from my perspective.

2. Another alternative is to send the text message over Verizon's SMS network but have the reply-to number be my Google voice number so when they reply it will go through Google voice.

While #1 will more quickly reduce the number of text messages sent through the carrier network what's most important is I'm using the same app for all texting.

I don't mind purchasing an app that can do this either.

I using a rooted Galaxy Nexus.

General :: CWM Touch Won't Stick - Galaxy Nexus Rooted

Jun 28, 2012

I have been trying to get my rooted Galaxy Nexus to load the CWM Touch recovery image, and I just can't seem to get it to stick. I originally just tried to install the basic non-touch version from Rom Manager. When it rebooted, I got the red ! and a dead robot. So I booted into fast boot, and flashed the touch recovery. After flashing if I go straight to recovery, I do get the CWM recovery and can backup. My problem is that if I the reboot the phone, I can never get back to it again. I always end up at the red ! and a dead robot.

I read on another thread to rename the file "/recovery-from-boot.p" to "recovery-from-boot.p-bak" and that it might require reflashing the image. I moved this file and re-named it, reflashed, booted into android. Then powered off and booted into recover mode, just to see the red ! again.

It seems that when I first flash I can go into it, but anytime after that it just dies. I could probably just go ahead and flash a new image to the phone but I don't feel good doing that while the recovery image seems to need re-imaging every time.

General :: How To Change ROM Build Number - Galaxy Note

Dec 27, 2012

So, I've just started create my first Android ROM, for my Galaxy Note. I'm now enjoying my break from school, and what could be better then spending it developing? Well, let's start!

I've downloaded two ROMs that a friend of mine has created. He's right now on vacation, so I can't ask him.

My first problem is probably a simple one. But how do I change the "About Phone" section? I understand that I can't change the model number, or the Baseband version. But how do I change the Build number so that it shows my ROM name?

Remember do tell me idiot simple, due to the fact that this in my first ROM.

General :: Galaxy Pocket S5300 Rooted - Bootloop After LCD Modder DPI Change

Jan 8, 2013

I rooted my Galaxy Pocket lately and installed LCD modder just to try changing the dpi settings. i changed the stock 120 dpi to 160 and clicked save. the phone froze and i had to pull of the battery. after i restart all i get is a boot loop. i get 3 things

(1) s5300 logo
(2) animated samsung logo
(3) flashing samsung logo which appears just before the lock screen appears

( 1 and 2 vibrations during this) and then it loops all over again. as i understand the change i dpi is not supported for my device and it is not loading into the home screen. the solution seems to be editing the build.prop file to reassign the stock dpi value. but to access the file i have to get into adb mode and have the device available in the list. but since debugging mode was not selected before i essentially soft bricked my phone i am not able to access my device in adb mode. i am able to get into recovery mode tho.any way to edit the build.prop file from this situation??.....

Nexus :: Unable To Change Voicemail Number

Feb 24, 2010

I picked up a Nexus One last week from someone who got it from the TED Conference. Apparently Google also gave out a SIM card with a month of service on T-Mobile. When I go to Settings / Call settings / Voicemail settings and the number shows the number that was given at the TED Conference, which is the old SIM. I keep changing it to my phone number as I am using my SIM. It takes the changes but if I reboot the phone, it reverts back to the old number.

General :: Samsung Galaxy S3 - Email Reply With Original Message

Aug 8, 2012

I have a user who has a Samsung Galaxy S3 and is using the GMail app to read her emails. This all works fine except for when she goes to reply to one. When she replies, everything looks ok and she can even send without a problem. The problem comes when the message is received the original message (below what she typed) just reads "Original sender wrote : " and that's it. That actual original message isn't there.

I've checked all the settings and even recreated the account and it still does it. I also checked the sent messages and it's like it there too so it's definatley something to do with the phone. The only thing we've found is that if you edit the original message in any way - even just by adding a space - it goes through correctly.

KitKat 4.4 :: Nexus 4 - Hangouts Quick Reply Not Sending?

Dec 9, 2013

I've been using hangouts for SMS since my Nexus 4 got the Kit Kat update. When I get an SMS I get the notification popup as I have with every SMS app I've used, and I and do a quick reply to the SMS from the popup, but when I press send it disappears off into... I have no idea where. It never arrives and if I look at the hangout thread it should relate to it isn't there.

I did wonder if the popup might be coming from my old SMS add (Handcent) but the icon is Hangouts and the message isn't in Handcent either.

KitKat 4.4 :: Galaxy Nexus - Change Current Clock On Stock Lock Screen?

Mar 31, 2014

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.

Motorola Droid :: Improvements To Gmail App - Reply - Reply All And Forward Buttons Very Inconvenient

Dec 10, 2009

I got an Android device specifically for Google integration, since my employer uses Google for 50% of our work (email, calendar, chat). Yet bizarrely, Android's Gmail app seems to be the weakest point of their platform.

IMHO (and please not let this become some kind of fanboy bashfest of someone trying to put in constructive criticism here):

The "Reply," "Reply All," and "Forward" buttons are very inconvenient -- at the bottom of the message, rather than a toolbar of some kind. This means that when I want to respond to one of those interminable email chains, I have to scroll past wads of old crap to reply. I've had intermittent success with forwarding attachments. It seems unpredictable when an attachment will forward and when it won't. Can someone shed some light into when it works? I suspect it has something to do with Outlook or other clients that attach files in non-standard ways. Very limited offline functionality. I would really prefer if there were an IMAP mode so I can review email while offline (e.g. on the plane or underground). Specific to the Droid: The D-Pad has so much potential, but instead all it does is jump from link to link in an email, which I do not find intuitive at all. At a minimum I'd think that the D-Pad would let you scroll; ideally, I'd like to see the D-Pad help solve the first problem described above (lack of access to the reply and forward buttons) so enough whining from me. I'd appreciate any solutions to the above (and "Shut up and deal with it" is not appreciated). It could be keystroke shortcuts I'm not aware of, apps that work better than the default Gmail program, pending app updates that take advantage of the Droid's unique hardware, etc.

Nexus :: Upgrading Rooted ERE27 To Rooted FRF91

Jul 2, 2010

I am sure it's been answered but I failed completely in finding what directions for my exact state and being a n00b when it comes to rooting, I've decided to ask first.

I am currently on rooted T-Mobile's ERE27. This morning I got OTA upgrade, however, when I tried to install it I got the "verification failed" message. After I restarted the phone, I looked at the SD card and found no of any kind.

Several questions:
1) Should I wait for an OTA? Will an OTA update work on rooted Nexus?
2) If I have to do it manually, can someone please explain the steps I should take or link me to a guide that fits my state?
3) Will an upgrade, manual or OTA, wipe the phone?

General :: Nexus 7 - Loose USB Hub On Rooted Tablet?

Dec 19, 2013

I have a slight issue with my Nexus 7 (2013).I pretty much can't charge up my tablet because the USB port is very loose. It happened quite suddenly, but I don't really know why and that is not the problem. It can happen.The problem is, my tablet is rooted. Does messing with the OS void the warranty on mechanical faults clearly not associated with any software?

Also, do you think I should take it to some local mobile repair shop instead? It would most definitely ruin what is left of my warranty for good.

Somehow I managed to get my Samsung Google Nexus S 4g phone unlocked and rooted today. In the process I installed the TWRP recovery as per the particular instructions I had.

Motorola CLIQ : Whenever Reply To Message Off The Home Screen Widget - Automatically Defaults To Home Number For That Contact

Feb 21, 2010

This is more of an annoyance, but whenever I reply to a message off the home screen widget, it automatically defaults to the home number for that contact, instead of replying to the same (cell) number that it was sent from. If I go into the messaging app, it works as it should (replies to the same number).

General :: Nexus 7 Running 4.2.2 - How To Update Rooted Device

Jul 25, 2013

I have a Nexus 7 running 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, with an unlocked boot loader and rooted. Since the 4.3 versions are now officially out, I was wondering how I would update. Is there any special process? Can I just use the normal OTA update service built-in? Will doing that lose my root and unlock? If possible, I'd prefer the most risk-free method, as I don't want to mess up my Nexus.

General :: New Nexus 7 - Unlocked But Not Yet Rooted Stuck With Red Triangle

Nov 10, 2013

I have been trying to follow the tutorial to take my Nexus 7 (2013) from it's just unboxed state to dual booting Android and Ubuntu Touch. I succeeded in unlocking the tablet. I am using Ubuntu 13.10 on my laptop and installed the whole Android SDK and everything (even though I already had Eclipse installed for learning Java). I've reached two sticking points.

First, the part where I'm told to copy the three files (the MultiROM zip, the kernel zip, and recovery image) to the root directory of the tablet: it's not clear how to do that. The files wouldn't copy except to the internal storage folder. Or is that the root directory?

Second, I am unable to boot to recovery.

adb reboot recovery

command only brings up the android on his back with the red triangle containing an exclamation mark. That screen lasts a minute or so and then the device reboots normally on its own. I have tried several power and volume button combinations to get a different result at this point, but to no avail.

General :: Change Version Number In APK

Dec 12, 2012

I own a BB Playbook tablet for about a year now (bought it during the when it was about 200$ because I needed a 7'', the hardware was specs were nice at the time and the company promised Android app support). Regardless of the sanity of my decision the device saves me about 2 hours per day (I use it mainly to read pdf and build an xls database).

I've converted many apk to bar in order to sideload them to my device (not all of these work). Recently I tried Firefox on my Xperia mobile and was quite pleased with the ABP plugin So I tried to convert the apk but both the apk2bar and the Blackberry Graphical Aid Tool complain that the version number is too long...

How to shorten it? In what file is it located?

Samsung Galaxy S :: Google Talk - Reply Appear As Offline Message

Oct 5, 2010

I'm having an issue with google talk on my gs. Whenever my friend says something to me her messages appear as offline messages. So if she sends a message it will be in a gray area with a date below (sent at 16:45). This wouldn't be much of a problem but they don't come chronological with my own messages. At first they all piled up at the top so I had to scroll up everytime to see if she had said something. But now I changed something and they seem to appear a few sentences above my own. Now I usually don't have to scroll up anymore but it's still pretty annoying.

General :: Change Phone Model Number

Oct 8, 2013

when the Optimus V came out, I found a thread either on here or XDA about how to change the model number to think it was a different phone. I did this to allow for the usage of Netflix, and I think I may have changed it to a Nexus model..

My current phone, the Optimus F7, is rooted and running stock Android 4.1.2 JB. (I rooted in order to allow for uninhibited tethering from my carrier.)I have browsed here, XDA, and countless pages on Bing and Google... yet I have found nothing about doing this... to any phone.My only desire (not the phone) is to make my F7 think it's - at least - a Galaxy S3. Many of my friends, coworkers and family have the S3 and I figure out things and solve problems on their phones, yet I find nothing on my own, so I simply wanted to turn it into an S3.

I am aware that I could simply get an S3, but I have had horrid luck with Samsung devices (not software) in the past, but have had wonderful luck with LG devices.
