I am wondering if I am on the newest firmware / software for my Hero (Sprint) I went to Settings / About Phone / System Updates etc .. downloaded a update... It now saysmy firmware version is 1.5 and software version is 1.56.651.2 not really sure but I thought I was reading people are on version 2.0 and higher not sure but anyway do Ihave to go to the Sprint website or the HTC website for the newer version if there is in fact one?
Quick question: Where in the .pkg update package is the information on the build and the version of the update? I sort of screwed up my tablet, I can boot into stock recovery but not much more. ADB won't work, and AFAIK nobody knows how to enter fastboot mode on this thing. Hence, I figured that the only way to reinstall the ROM is to trick recovery into installing an update package that's already installed.
I'm trying to understand how end-users will upgrade their device firmware from Android ver. X to X+1. A new build of Android contains system.img and userdata.img (among others). system.img is read-only, so I don't see any problem with simply replacing the user's existing copy. However, simply overwriting userdata.img with a newer version would destroy all of an end-users application data (wouldn't it?).
I'm trying to understand how this process will work for our Android- based device. It seems that the designers of Android must have had a plan for doing this without the user losing all of their data, but I can't find any documentation about this. Googling for this information yields lots of pages containing hacker- level instructions (e.g. adb commands) -- still no idea how this process was envisioned to work for average end-users.
I've installed galaxo (galaxhero to be precise) for quite a while now and it's been awesome. Only thing is, my Chinese ID3 tags come out as gibberish, I think it's 'cause of the II5 firmware. I've read threads about flashing to II5 before installed galaxo, but since updated versions have been coming out, I just wanted to find out. Is galaxo strictly only for II5? Meaning it isn't backward NOR forward compatible? My gibberish ID3 tags are really bugging me.
I just ran an update using the SEUS and I have received a couple Vodafone applications and a Sony Ericsson Sync application are there meant to be any other changed that I have missed? Firmware version is still 1.6 Baseband version 1.1.28 Build number is still on 24?
I installed Galaxo 184.108.40.206 the other day and GPS performance sucked (im not the only who has noticed this)I decided to go back to the roots. I want your opinion which 1.5 version is most responsive, fastest, least battery consuming qnd gps friendliest. Languages are not important (beside english ofcourse).
Picked up a Milestone today, firmware is 2.1 update 1, build number shols_u2_02.31.0. I just wanna check I've got an official firmware version on board and not a rooted version, so I can get the official updates when released. Anyone know how to check the details?
What I did was create two .java files. One that can compile and run on a 1.5 phone (SDK3) and then one that works on 2.0(SDK5) So for this example i'll call the 1.5 file ExampleOld and the new one Example. I was wondering if i just made activity like this if it would work sort of like a "portal" and pick the activity to load depending on the SDK so there is no crash or compile errors. Are there any changes I should make to my code? Maybe anyone out there that's had to do this before.
Does anyone know the main differences between the full HTC version of 2.2 and the T-Mobile version that has just been rolled out? From what I have seen in some articles the camera and camcorder functions / look and feel haven't changed. anybody else know of differences other than the addition of crappy new apps i didn't ask for... thanks T-Mobile
I currently have a i9001 using Android 2.3.3 with baseband version I9001XXKF8 and am planning to flash with the newer I9001XXKQ1 version since there is no official 2.3.6 update for my region.
My current firmware I use has the South African CSC files(I9001OJCKF3) but the newer firmware uses the German CSC(I9001DBTKP1). My phone is not sim-locked.
If I flash to the newer firmware would that 'brick' the device? If I backup my current CSC files from /root/system/csc would I be able to restore these onto the newer firmware? If so would replacing these require factory reset or any such thing?
I am having my Galaxy S delivered tomorrow and was wondering what protection people are using. I was going to use some sort of film protector, such as Zagg invisible shield and a Flip Case. But the only flip case I can find for the Galaxy S looks horrid, and I am not sure on the texture of Zagg Invisible Shields.I have also considered silicone gel cases, but I am having trouble finding one that is nice, and pouches in combo with a screen protector.What would you use and if I did buy a screen protector, which brand should it be, I want one that will protect but with minimum difference to the feel or colour of the screen.
I used to be a C/C++ programmer before getting in to android. I am not sure how people maintain 2 versions of a program without using #ifdef preprocessor macros. Right now I am changing the package name in eclipse and changing the code manually, but this seems really inefficient. Can anybody suggest a good way of having 2 or more projects that share most of the code?
I'm planning on getting LockBot when I get my EVO and I was wondering, what's the difference between the free version and paid version. I basically want the Moto Droid lock screen on my EVO for the slide to toggle sound on/off feature due to the lack of an external switch on the EVO. Would I be best to get the paid version or will the free version do that?
I have a problem for a few days. The story is that I installed Custom ROM and it stop asking for unlock code when I insert a new carrier sim card. Somebody told me to restore to Stock Firmware. I used "KDS Firmware Update" to push Stock Firmware from my PC but when the phone restart to install Stock Firmware, Custom Recovery Mode appear instead of Stock Recovery Mode. As the result, it failed to install.
I'm looking for a way to restore Stock Recovery Mode but I found nothing. Now, how to do it or give me the Stock Recovery Image zip for my LG Optimus G E973.
how to stop the annoying media scan on this Galaxy S Captivate, which included tutorials on rooting and getting sdk files.
Now I would like to upgrade to the latest firmware. I found out that I needed something called Kies, so I downloaded it and followed the instructions - hooked up the phone after checking debugging, etc, but I got an error that said I don't have authorization or something. I started researching a bit, but got quickly overwhelmed with things I'd never heard of like "Odin".
I'm definitely a newbie with Android. Today, I looked online for overclocking my LG Optimus F3, and I found this thread "[MS659][F3] Freedom Kernel Overclocked" (I'm a newbie xda won't let me post links yet). It said you could achieve a 1.4 GHz overclock (my device has a 1.2 GHz processor). So, dummy me, I got all excited and flashed the MS65910c firmware to my phone like the thread said I needed to have (I didn't know that that would switch my service providers as I had Virgin Mobile). So, I'm a little confused still... Can I still have Virgin Mobile service with MetroPCS firmware? If not, I want to restore my device back to Virgin Mobile firmware (LS720ZV6). The problem is, I am also a little confused with the flashing firmware thing. Can I flash .zip files instead of .kdz files (I couldn't find LS720ZV6 .kdz firmware files on the web)?
My tablet is a JXD P300 with Android 4.0.4. Tetando set the external SD card as internal SD did some wrong procedure even went to settings and turned off the internal SD card. And now the tablet is stopped on the first home screen. Looking for firmware for it?
