General :: How To Change Icons Of Battery / WiFi / Signal Bar On Samsung S3 Clone
Mar 23, 2013
how to change the icon of its battery, WiFi and signal bar. I was able to successfully root the phone..I wanted the phone to look original by changing those icons. Even if i try to apply different themes those icons wont change. And another problem is Phone Coverage Signal weak or lost, another phone can receive 50% or full coverage signal.
I notice that the home screen is customizable but not the four applications on the bottom, the call, email, browser and applications. How would I change those icons with different icons? Mainly the email and browser. How do I turn off or at least severly limit the data that goes to and from my phone. I do not have wireless and am just a bit paranoid about going over my data limit. I got the phone from work and this is my first smartphone so I am a bit nervous about anything I do on it.
I got myself a Chinese clone of a galaxy S3 (alps 7102), it has Android's Jelly Bean 4.1.1 operating system on it.
It keeps on changing its wi-fi mac address on reboot which I guess I could put up with, I have seen other posts with similar problems on varying phones and have tried to fix it, as per the methods described for them, but I cant seem to get a fix that works, for my phone I am not very familiar with the android operating system but have some experience with linux.
The phone doesn't seem to have a bootloader as I have tried to boot the phones bootloader with the adb command "adb reboot- bootloader" from my pc but it just boots as usual, I have done a factory reset to the phone as per the instructions from the ebayer that I bought the phone from but that didn't fix it (as you might have guessed) but it did reset the phones serial number to 0123456789ABCDEF which I have no idea why that happened but has added to the issues that I would like to be fixed.
how to change bottom icons on home screen (e.g. phone,contact,message,internet,apps) i think its called the bottom dock its for new Samsung Galaxy S3 4G i cant find any forum or vids on youtube, i can find plenty on how to change the icons on the lock screen but thats not what i looking for.
I got my i7500 two days a go and I'm still getting familiar with it and I need some help. It seems to me that there is no WAP. So, how do I connect to internet if there is no WiFi signal? This is the first of many, many, many wonderful questions and I thank you for answering!
Have a Samsung galaxy s Fascinate.Recently installed new wireless N network at house which is working fine.I get a great strong signal all over the house on my laptop from the network.With my Fascinate however,I get a very weak signal in most places, and only a fair signal when standing close to the router.Very annoying as my 3G connection in my house is not so great either.Anyone else having this issue?Any known solutions?
I want to reach out to others here before I take my Moment back to Best Buy to exchange it for another Moment.
My signal strength fluctuates wildly just sitting in the same spot. With the Hero I got a constant 5 of 6 bars, but the Moment will vary between 0 and 5 of 6 bars. But it's more complicated than that.
It seems that whenever the EVDO data kicks in, it causes the signal strength to drop to 0 or 1 bar. Once the data is idle, the EVDO indicator turns grey and then changes from EV(^v) to EV(D). At that point the single strength will return to 3 or 4 bars.
At times, though not as consistently or often, the EVDO connection will fall back to 1xRTT and will switch between them every few minutes. This will occur even when the signal strength bars are in the 3 to 4 range.
So, the my questions are...
Does the signal strength apply to the data signal or just the voice signal?
Is there any legitimate reason for the signal strength to vary wildly like I've described, even when sitting in the same recliner where the Hero had a constant 5 bar connection and data service that never wavered?
Is anyone else having signal strength and/or data service issues?
Should I exchange the Moment for another Moment or will I likely experience the same issue?
I have a samsung s 4 clone,my phone voice call are very soft regardless of incoming and outgoing.but i tried with line,viber, skype it can hear just like normal phone. I just don't understand why is the voice call is very soft, how to boost the volume? I tried upgrading to never firmware but it still the same..
I have the Behold II through T Mobile and when I'm on the road and in certain places I will have full bars but no 3g, or wifi. When I try to send a text it says "Unable to send text, will send once service becomes avalible" When I try to make a call it says service unavalible.
It tells me I have full bars, and when I go to network selection, it doesnt matter what network i choose or whats avalible it wont connect to it, a message will pop up and say "Network with limited service avalible, search for network" ..if i say yes it just does the same thing all over again, and if i say no it goes into automatic mode and wont let me do anything once again..
I have full bars, does that not matter? If I have to have 3g then why would it tell me i have a full signal when I really dont.
I had 1.25hrs of talk time use 60% of my battery. Not a good sign. Also, the reception has been very unstable, wavering between 1 and 3 bars all over town. My cheap Nokia go phone I was using had 4-5 bars everywhere. The wi-fi signal appears to show less bars than my other phones.
How to install cwm recovery,to flash rom and any available custom roms for this phone...
my phone is a galaxy s3 clone
Model number GT-I9300 Baseband version MAUI.11AMD.W12.22.SP.V5,2012/10/23 14:35 Kernel version 3.0.13 root@nebula#1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Jan 21 16:59:34 CST 2013 Build number APLS.ICS2.MP.V1 Custom build version 004120121
I own the i9000 about a week nowI noticed that the wifi reception is very bad compared with my iPhone 3GS(even in my house i have one bar;and i have to stick the phone to the router D-LINK to have full bars)I want to know is it "normal" is it an individual problem or all the devices had the same issue ?Is it related to hardware or software bug ?Can this problem be solved with Froyo ?
I am switching my phone from Droid X to something new one (probably Droid Charge..) soon.After I switched, my old Droid can be used for checking email or surfing web within Wifi area? Since my Droid will soon end its contract, I want to give it to my friend who just wants to have it as a web checking device.
Problem: When pressing the power button to turn phone on, there is no samsung boot logo. the only thing that shows up is a black screen, [the backlight] it will stay that way until the battery dies.
i know it's not a problem with the display because i can get to the recovery screen by pressing the three buttons. i tried numerous wipes and factory resets, even tried to reboot from there. but it still wont boot up, it only ends up with that black screen. Also the green battery shows which further indicates that it's not a display problem.
Model: GT-I9500 FCC ID: A3LGTi9500 SSN:-i9500GSMH RATED:3.85V===:13 00mA MADE IN KOREA BY SAMSUNG IMEI:355236030 S/N:R21D48HDDA
That's basically all i know about this phone, i know it's a clone because on the hardware differences under the hood compared to the real S4. [it's probably a legend or a superking since it's from korea i think] im not sure which operating system it runs, from the looks of it i dont think it has one.
Some things i've tried: i downloaded android SDK, MTK droid tools, SP FLash tools, for some reason, i keep getting error 8200 in sp flash tools and mtk droid tools doesn't detect my phone. I tried flash updating firmware with adb sideload, it always ends up with an error ''aborted''. i can't enable usb debugging since the phone wont turn on.
How do you change the four icons at the bottom of the screen (by default, Phone, Contacts, Messaging, and Applications).I seem to recall only the middle two can be changed, but I can't remember how to do it.
I'm trying to figure out how to change the icons at the bottom of the screen but I'm failing miserably at it...or I'm beginning to think that it's just not possible?
Specifically I'm wanting to change the Messaging icon out to be the one for Handcent (or any other messaging icon other than stock). Yes, I realize I can set it to point to use Handcent by default, but when you initially open it, it doesn't start to use Handcent initially, only once you go into conversations does it start to use the Handcent application.
Is there a way to do this like there is on the other Galaxy devices or is this completely locked down on the Epic and I need to download another UI in order to change this?
I am searching for a app that will automatically switch my WiFi signal from one signal that is weak or getting weak to another signal that is stronger. Example I am at work and I will be connected to a hot spot on one side of the building, I go over to the other side of the building and the signal strength is weak and there is a new hot spot next to me that is extremely strong but the phone stays connected to the weak signal until I go and switch it manually to the new hot spot.
I currently have a jailbroken iPhone 4 and am about to get a HTC One. I used MyWi to tether a WiFi signal while connected to my house's WiFi network to my laptop via USB. I want to be able to do this with Android as well.
