I've got a Samsung Galaxy S Advance which was from China. Its stock widgets and apps all support Chinese stuff like Weibo and are useless to me since I live in UK. I can't get Google Store / Android Market either - these aren't on the phone.
It's I9070, running 2.3.6. I downloaded 2.3.6 online and used Odin 1.38 a few times but it always went "FAIL!" on me.
Now I'm planing to write a app to access the system contacts, maybe get contact information is easy to implement, but can I create a new recored of contact in my app and insert into the system's contact? my requirement is : 1. get all records from contact 2. insert my recored into contact.
OK, like most here I'm struggling a bit with battery life. Last night for example I was 100% charged when I went to sleep, woke up to the phone at 72%. So yeah, nearly 30% battery lost simply sitting there doing nothing.So, I have just now killed off the DRM service and media hub in running services in hopes that my issue is what others have experienced.
However... I routinely notice many other apps running in my task killer "Advance Task Killer Free". Just now for example I just shut everything down. I sent a text message to the wife, and now the following apps are once again running:
Voice Dialer Media Hub Amazon MP3
There are others that I actually want going, JuiceDefender, SysTray Monitor... but what is up with these above?? I am CONSTANTLY seeing them run. Is there a way to shut these down for good? Why are they starting up on their own? Does anyone know if this is a part of my battery issues?
My fiance has a moment and we wanted to know how to back up her app data before we update to 2.1 without rooting the phone.I know that contacts and e-mails are synced but what about app data?I tried a quick search but found nothing.
Is it possible to install SG A rom on Ace 2 ? They are really similar like defy and defy plus (some people install defy+ roms on defy with red lens) It will be good idea (of course if it will work ) because Advance processor clock is set 1000mhz (ace "overclock" don't work well, only changes clock value display).
Is there a program or something that will back up contacts like dashwire does for windows mobile? Basically on dashwire you would install it, it would sync and upload your contacts....then if you ever had to reset the phone, reinstall the program and all your contacts are downloaded to your phone.
I found a Pokemon Game that I wanted to play and learned that I can play it on my Droid X2. So I got Gameboid and created a folder that has BIOs and the Game I downloaded. Whenever I try to open the .gba game Gameboid just closes little bit after I click it. It is the right BIOs file and the Pokemon game is a custom/hacked game.
Till some days ago, I was using mojo gba lite for playing my favorite games from Gameboy Advance (.gba format)...but after I updated my samsung galaxy fit s5670, running 2.2, to the official gingerbread update 2.3.4, the app stopped loading my .gba files...I just get a black screen, though with the onscreen controls still visible (but not usable), and my phones menu button also didn't produce any response from the app...after which the app just closes...
I tried other gba emulators, but none have worked so far on my phone (with 2.3.4)...
I would like to unlock my i9070p so as to use it with another operator's simcard. My phone is locked on ORANGE. I heard about a method with root, busy box and galaxy s unlock on the android market but i don't know if il will work on the Samsung galaxy s advance (i9070).
So I have downloaded a game called trainz, which requires me to download 300+ MB data. I have a samsung galaxy young s6312. I have downloaded the game with the data on this mobile. Recently I got a note 2. I want to play this game on my note 2. But i don't want to download the data all over again. Is there a solution by which I can copy the data folder from my old device to my new one?
I already tried copying the com.nv3games.trainz folder (size 318 mb) from my old device to the obb folder of my new device, which didn't work. I also tried copying it to the data folder of my new device, which also didn't work. The Game was still asking me to download the data. Both devices are rooted, so any solution which requires root will be ok.
I have an HTC One running 4.3 and I've been having a lot of problems since the update. I'm about to do a factory reset to try and fix it, but I was wondering if there is a way I can back up app data (ex. my game saves) before doing so? I know how to do it through recovery, but my phone isn't rooted so I don't have any of those options available.
I've noticed that my mobile data is turning off by itself. Initially I thought it was JuiceDefender throwing a wobbly, but then I noticed that its event log was full of comments like "Mobile data is back under JD control" and something about reloading a profile. By watching the notification in the drop down menu I noticed that it was perpetually restarting itself.
I uninstalled it, and tried another app called 2x Battery and the same thing was happening. The data toggle in the setting menu of MIUI was greyed out to show data had been turned off, and 2x Battery stated that data had been toggled by the user.
It seems to be that a third party app is deactivating mobile data. Is there any app out there that can log when an app deactivates data, so I can find out the culprit?
Just order my first Android device my main concern is about getting my Email contacts over to my new device. So when you start adding Email accounts like Live or Hotmail or Yahoo for example once you add those Email accounts will it pull in my contacts that go along with my Email Accounts?
Yesterday I was using an app and all of a sudden it went to the main menu, anyways I shut the device down and restarted it and now all my settings went back to factory settings. I can still see in explorer that the apps and settings are there but I don't know how to get it all back the way it was without having to reinstall everything.
