General :: Google Nexus - No Home Screen When Turn On
Oct 25, 2012
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?
Anytime i am done using my phone it stays on unless i black it out by hitting the power button. shouldn't it do this automatically? If i get a text in the middle of the night it stays lit up killing my battery, how do i stop this?
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 have a nexus 4. Recently tried to root it and install a rom. Guess I did something horribly wrong. Phone is now stuck on the google screen. Ive used the nexus root toolkit to try and restore it to factory settings and tried do a factory resest from the repair tool. Flashed the factory image from the tool kit also. none of this seems to work.
I've been playing with various widgets, putting them on the home screen & building groups of apps to keep the screen simple, so I can actually see my wallpaper. (Nothing special, just pics I like.)
Problem is that huge Google bar at the top. Is there an simple way to get rid of it, like the select-drag-drop for other home screen stuff.?Also, there seems to be some limits on where I can actually put apps or widgets. Is there a way to adjust this too?I'd really like to put a dashboard widget in place of that Google bar.
Finally, is there a way to disable Google when I select or swipe nearby the bottom of the screen?
This is a real pain-in-the-patootie when playing solitaire & the cards get near the bottom of the screen.
So I have a GSM Galaxy Nexus that was running stock 4.3 (maguro)
Having been really frustrated with the low volume on the device, I decided to try the method mentioned on this link - Download Fix for Google Galaxy Nexus I9250 Volume Issue - Android Advices (VolumeFix by MoDaCo)
After I applied the fix and rebooted, my phone got stuck at the Google screen. My phone was unlocked prior to applying this fix so I went ahead and installed the CWM recovery - despite that, I cannot go past the Google screen, I haven't been able to install the CWM-SuperSU on my phone yet because I cannot transfer it to my phone without having it connected as a USB storage device. I tried adb push CWM-SuperSU-v0.87.zip /sdcard/ but it says "device not found"
I have even downloaded the stock 4.2.1 ROM to flash my phone with it, but at this stage I cannot do anything. I have logged into recovery and have wiped cache/ partitions/ dalvik etc but still it doesn't work.
I have the galaxy discover phone from bell . new to android always had an iphone . Explain the difference between the google search bar on the home screen and the browser when i go to the applications .
does it matter which i use ? for example if i know the www address or if I just want to search say for car rentals and do not know the web address.
also my phone is a bell prepaid phone and when I use the browser to find a page i get a little pop up that says something about bell mobi whatever that is and telling me to bookmark it.
I cannot seem to find a way to put music controls for Google Play Music on my home screen. I can put a link to a specific playlist and I can put the Google SoundSearch widget on my home screen but not an actual widget that allows me to quicklly pause play skip etc. It shows up on my lockscreen but I see no option for the home screen. Am I missing something?
I know the playback controls are now available in the notification pane but having to swipe down is an extra step. I seem to remember a widget before....
Just got my 1st problem with my nexus 1, had since january. my home and google search keys has stopped working. also the power button no longer locks the phone. problem started when the wi-fi wouldnt turn on, so i rebooted phone and then lost all these buttons when started up again. not done a factory reset yet as i am still at work and want to make sure ive got everything backed up 1st. also what is the best application for backing up sms?
I don't know what I have done, but the power button on the top, which I used to be able to press to turn off the screen, no longer works. I can use it to turn on the screen. And I can hold it on to power down, airplane mode, etc. But pressing it once does nothing when the screen is lit up. I have tried wiping all data from the boot menu. This restores the functionality, but when I restore all my data and apps (MyBackupPro) the problem returns.
Does anyone know of any buttons to use on the home screen for turning the mobile internet on and off? I use the power bar widget for screen brightness, bluetooth, WiFi etc., but it doesn't have mobile Internet!
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 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.
When I fire up my web browser, Google is my home screen. Just below the search field my browser says "location unavailable update". When I click update it tries to acquire location but can't. I think I've tried everything to get it to locate my location. I've turned it on through google settings. I've turned on GPS on my phone. I've got nothing. I'm at a loss at how to enable this feature because I used to have it and liked it.
Is it possible to turn on the hints/guide that first time users get after initial setup of nexus 7? I'm not sure if this is nexus 7 only or a feature of jelly bean but after setting you google account, you get a few on screen hints I would like to turn these back on for someone after setting up their device and installing some apps for them as xmas gift.
I turn off my 4G/LTE on my Galaxy Nexus to save battery but when charging or plugged in, I would like to take advantage of the faster speeds. Is there a way to automatically turn on/off 4G/LTE in relation to the charging status? 3G on battery, 4G when plugged in.
I have a home screen replacement app. It is set via the GUI to always be used as the home screen. How can I get that activity to start the original home screen on demand? Is there a published activity name for it? I want my replacement home screen to remain the default.
Although I don't have any issues while using apps or playing games, sometimes when I scroll through my home screens it kinda jerks back and stays on the same screen as if I had not swiped it properly or something. I'm not sure if it's because I am so used to my phone which does not take as much effort or if this is an actual problem.
My nexus one phone crashed a week ago, I reseted the factory settings, and since then I can't find the power control system(wifi, gps, Bluetooth and screen brightness) widget which I had on my home page when I first bought the phone.
I'm using a Nexus One running 2.3.4 and it looks like the gmail app version is 22.214.171.124 and I've noticed they've now incorporated the 'Important Labels' functionality into the app.
Problem is, I don't like/use/desire the important labels and now they're cluttering up my inbox view with a little yellow chevron next to the sender's name and the 'go to inbox' in the menu has moved and where it was is a 'mark important'
I had a look through the settings and I don't have priority inbox as my default, under label's there is a sync option for 'Important' which is set to 'None'.
Also I don't have the important labels for the web version of gmail proper on.
I think I may have accidentally marked one email on my phone as important (because that's where the go to inbox button was) so perhaps that's why they are showing up?
Any way to turn off/hide the important labels. Really annoyed that Google is making me find out how to opt-out of this feature rather than just asking if I wanted to opt-in
I just switched from WebOS so I'm quite a noob to Android. Anyways, I bought a new Samsung Galaxy Nexus with Android 4.4.
Now to my issue: I like to watch video streams. The problem is, that the display will turn automatically off.
Solutions: 1. Play a stream with a video player - how can I do this? 2. Change settings so the display will not switch off on a stream, but will turn off when idle - is this even possible? 3. Turn off "turn off display when idle" setting - but I don't like this one.
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.
I am trying to pass location data from my application to the Google Navigation API (No, not the browser). I can pass data to the dialer, and call a phone number successfully, but now wish to use the turn-by-turn navigation as an additional function. I have searched tirelessly through Android documentation, Google Maps API Documentation, and the web without luck.Can anyone point me in the right direction or hint how I can pass the service my data?
