General :: How To Disable Scrolling Cache Manually Without Flashing
Mar 5, 2012
How to disable scrolling cache manually without flashing? This tweak is included to most custom roms but I don't want to use custom roms and other frameworks cause I'm afraid it will mess up some of my applications or phone features. My device is Neo V and already rooted.
In cm roms, dalvik cache of system apps are generated in /cache but those data/apps are generated in /data. Is there any way to disable this behaviour? Cache partition in our phones is too small. In AOSP and AOKP and stock roms, dalvik cache is always generated in /data no matter whether its a system app. any way to achieve this in cm roms?
If I uninstall an app without clearing the app's cache, will Android automatically delete the cache too when it uninstalls the app? Or is it best to manually delete the cache before uninstalling an app?
It looks like ics automatically runs the "Android is Upgrading" thing whenever it senses some "change" in boot.img? It happens everytime i flash a kernel, without wiping dalvik cache. It will continue to run regardless of whether the dalvik cache files are present or not. This is actually a good feature.
But i noticed that if i simply do a nandroid backup of /boot, and restore it without doing anything else, or flash the same kernel again, it will boot up with the "Android is Upgrading" thing again from the start.
is there a way to disable this, or at least prevent dalvik cache generation if they are already present? im using amon Ra recovery
I want to make use of the trackball or d-pad to scroll my ListView smoothly. Without implementing anything, by default the list scrolls by one item, which is not appropriate for my app, since list items have different heights and I just want to scroll it by a fixed amount.
Is there anything to call to let's say, emulate a 10 pixel drag down?
I'm sorry to double post, but this is very important to me. I am making an intranet website that exactly fits the screen of the device it will be used on (Archos 7 home tablet in this case, Android 1.5).
All browsers (default, dolphin, steel, UC) interpret tap&drag on a website as scrolling. I don't want this. Ideally, I want it to be registered as mouse actions. Is there a way to do this?
Is there an option to disable the LED flashing when you have a low battery? I know I have a low battery, I don't need to be continually reminded. I keep thinking I have a new message or something. (I know they flash green but still...)
I'm implementing an image cache system for caching downloaded image.
My strategy is based upon two-level cache: Memory-level and disk-level.
My class is very similar to the class used in the droidfu project
My downloaded images are put into an hashmap and the Bitmap objet is wrapped inside a SoftRererence object.
Also every image is saved permanently to the disk. If a requested image is not found into the Hashmap<String,SoftReference<Bitmap>> it will be searched on the disk, readed, and then pushed back into the hashmap. Otherwise the image will be downloaded from the network.
Since I store the images into the phisical device momery, I have added a check for preserve the device space and stay under a 1M of occupied space:
This method is called sometime afte a disk writing:
What I'd like to add is the same check on the HashMap size to prevent it will grow too much. Something like this:
My question is: What could be a right MAX_MEMORY_SIZE value? Also, Is it a good approach? A good answer also could be: "Don't do it! SoftReference is already enough"
my mobile's accelerator has stopped working, so turning on/off auto-rotate feature is of no use to me. Is there any application or widget that manually rotate screen or at least gallery so that I can view picture in landscape mode. Go Launcher Ex allows to rotate homescreen and app drawer but doesn't rotate any application. I just need an app to view pictures in landscape mode.
I got a replacement Galaxy s3 through insurance and I had been using "GoBackup" to backup app and data. However it didn't appear to have restored any of the appdata. I believe it may have been restoring to /data/data/data/data instead of /data/data but when I tried to copy and paste the folders to their proper location the app won't work anymore. It will just say "unfortunately, app has stopped work" whenever I try to launch the app again.
I have also tried copying the appdata folder directly from a CWM backup and tried to paste it on the new phone under /data/data and this seemed to provide some results however after rebooting the phone the data gets wiped and it's back to as if the app was freshly installed.
P.S. The new phone has TWRP since it has the locked bootloader. So I couldn't just restore my CWM backup to it. The old phone got bricked trying to installed TWRP Recovery.
I live in border area of my state, ,so that is also the border of my telecom operator. Every time I search my home network, after some time it automatically select the roaming network. Is any app available for keeping mobile network in manual mode or any other way to prevent searching mobile network in automatically?
I was sending a text and input the wrong phone number (a 2 at the end instead of a 3) and now every time I starting inputting that phone number to send a text both numbers come up. I can't find any way to delete the one that is incorrect or any way to delete both or to delete all of the numbers that show up that way. Is there a text cache that can be deleted? I used app cache cleaner, but that didn't work.
I do really love cloud computing... But, Google seems to have forgot something: set a limit to the cache size.
I have a Nexus S and my poor 16Gb internal memory is saturated because of caches: Google+, Android Gallery (Picasa), Google Music and Google Listen all fight for the sdcard space.
The only apps who have explicit cache settings is Google Listen... The others don't have obvious options. I have 10K songs, 10-20K photos, etc.. I need to access them, but I need to limit the cache size.
Is there a way to easily limit cache size per apps?
I just came across my first downfall with moving the dalvik to SD. Nandroid is stuck trying to backup cache. Im guessing the reason is that nandroid cant find the dalvik because it is not symbollically linked by S2e since we arent booted into the actaul OS. Anyway i can get nandroid to backup without moving it back?
I was flashing CM9 from CM7 on my Motorola Defy, botched it up intially due to a slip of my finger which led to me to Clear the cache first. But then I restarted the entire process by Clearing Data -> Installing -> Flashing Kernel and so on...
But when I tried to clear the Dalvik Cache, the phone didn't delete it. It didn't give me a message that it wiped the cache, but it didn't say otherwise either. This led me to believe that the cache just didn't exist anymore.
As a result, I'm unable to install apps - Says there is no memory and I need to make more. Also, everytime the phone comes on is treated as the first time. It takes me through the whole process of Setting up an account and everything. This has rendered my phone obsolete.
I have had a problem when trying to update the ROM of my Ascend g300. While doing the factory reset it got stuck on formatting /cache. It appened a few hours ago and it's still there. I already pulled out the battery but as soon as i turn it on, it goes to the same screen. I cant do anything else on the phone, not even go to the recovery screen.
my verizon galaxy tab 7 (sch-1800) doesn't boot, it freezes on samsung splash. I already restored the stock rom, but it doesn't change anything. if i try to restore default with recovery mode, it says E:failed to mount cache.
I was just flashing a new ROM for my gio, and made sure that i did a factory reset, wiped cache partition and wipe dalvik cache. but when i went to wipe the dalvik, CWM froze for a bit, then showed the yes/no part for like half a second, then kicked me back to the main menu. It does this every time. What to do? or should i just reflash it?
I changed my default font system and after reboot my phone freezes on boot animation and doesn't boot to system. i have a backup from all my data and rom. If i had to flash what should i do before?should i wipe cache, dalvik cach, factory reset and system? and then install zip?
Android Central file attachment system. It said files that aren't utilized will be auto deleted in an hour, but everything I ever uploaded is still there even if I remove it them a post. Including an image I uploaded that gave me a warning in the process.
I just uploaded files with the same name twice and it's very confusing differentiating between them. The only thing I can do right now is move the unwanted files into a folder. It let me delete that folder, but it said the files within will return to the home folder.
I've only had my Android phone for about 2 weeks now but being a bit of a geek love to tweak things to make them "cooler"...Updating - can I manually update from 2.2.1 to a newer version?Widget - There was a widget already installed with 5 icons, WiFi-Bluetooth-?-?-brightness Not sure what the two are but I suspect perhaps GPS (looks like it might be a sat dish) and Account Sync (circle with 2 curved arrows)Sometimes the phone boots in Safe Mode and after a few reboots finally boots into "normal" mode. Through trial and error I can get to a "recovery" prompt but that has "wipe" functions and I don't want to wipe my data. Is there an other option or just keep rebooting until it works? I read that you can hold the volume + button, but that brings up a factory testing menu on this clone phone.
The phone is a HTC clone from China (Hero 300 listed on box). I have a 2GB card I'm using with it. It appears to be "rooted" because there is the superuser icon.
