I'm looking for an app to transfer files to and from my HTC Desire and MacBook. I am currently doing it via an FTP Server app, but the big draw back is that it relies on internet upload speeds rather than using a LAN share, so it ends up being a lot slower than USB. I've tried ES File manager as that as LAN connectivity, but I couldn't get it working with my Mac.
On my Nokia N82, there was an app I used to use for this purpose called SymSMB (SymSMB for S60 3rd & 5th Edition by Telexy Networks :: Symbian software @ My-Symbian.com). What this did is allow my Mac too mount the entire SD card (or any folder of choice) from my N82 as a shared folder on my Mac, which was brilliant. Basically like accessing a shared folder on one computer from another. Is there an app that does this on Android?
I have a HTC Desire (great) but I wanna upgrade the stock 4GB MicroSD to a 16GB so I can get all my music on there (and hopefully more apps if Google can get it done). I went ahead and ordered a class 2 16GB card because I didn't have a lot to spend. My question is what are the advantages of a faster SD card such as a class 6? Is it just quicker file transfers or is their a significant increase in loading times or something else?
Using both Astro and the ES File Explorer included with Fresh 1.0.1, I'm trying to transfer files over my wifi from my computer to my SD card..Talk about SLOW, I could downloaded the files from the internet faster.I transferred a 175 meg TV show, took like 30 minutes, seriously.
Wondering if you all could help me out; I'm probably just a bumbling idiot, but any help would be appreciated.When I connect my phone to my laptop (running Windows 7 ultimate if that helps at all) it initially had issues collecting and recognizing the drivers.I went to HTC support, didn't find exactly what I needed as far as drivers were concerned but eventually, for some reason my computer officially detected my device, its drivers, and stated that it was ready to be used.Now I go to attempt to transfer music, but there's no icon in the my computer tray saying that the phone's connected as a mass storage device. I opened up Windows Media Player and it isn't in there as a synced device either. I used the disc that came with the phone but it seems to only have an application that tracks my exact usage (as far as minutes, texts, and data as well as transferring contacts and calendars which I'm not interested in) as opposed to something that helps actually sync my device for putting music on it.Please, bear with me here. It's my first true smartphone as my previous one was a Blackberry Curve 8330. It opened the exact way I would prefer this one to: as a mass storage device.Any glaringly obvious mistakes I'm making? Or is there a problem that could be hardware related on my end?
I am brand new to the htc magic android thing and having a few problems. Previously I synced all my calendar dates with isync and ical (on my n95) but I cant seem to get it to connect any one help me out? Also am I right in thinking the magic does not support bluetooth phone to phone file transfers? if so is there a application I can get that will do this?
Ive hooked my phone up to my pc so many times without error when I had Windows on my PC...and used ODIN to flash back to stock after a mishap.... I cant even count.. within last two weeks Ive moved to ubuntu instead of windows..I set up everything on my phone on ubuntu..sdk and everything...so Ive been building a rom for the fassy and i was testing something I made and something went wrong..so I now have no recovery..no way to get my phone back..Im up and running on the rom but it will not due ( no gaaps ) . So when i plug my phone into a windows pc it will not recognize it for ODIN...in device manager it labelled as " Linux file-cd gadget USB device" and cant install the driver to use ODIN.
i have search the web/forum for a windows app that running on the PC you can see at least the apk icon, I have several apks on my PC but when I'm looking for an apk, is hard to remember the name or when trying a new apk is not enough just looking for the name, I may be more visual guy that if I see a nice icon I will try it jajajja.I just found this thread but look die..URL...
is there some application or dev that can easily do an apk viewer, just looking inside the APK folder on the /res/drawable/ the apk icon shows, but how to make it shows at the apk compressed file.
I wonder if someday the SDK will run fine on Linux 64 bits. I understand it's not a priority for Google team, but 64bits desktop OS are becoming common. My case : Mandriva 2010 64 bits, Eclipse 64 bits, SDK 1.6 : OK to create code & launch emulator. But : - adb never find my phone linked to USB cable (it was OK before on Mandriva 32 bits) - TTS also doesn't work well on the emulator (it was OK in Mandriva 32 bits). Do you think the problem is with Mandriva ? or in Android SDK ?
I had built the system.img file in linux ubuntu OS for Android. I copied the system.img file in the widows SDK at /out/packagees/ target/generic directory. But when i am trying to start the emulator its not starting. And the logcat messages are not shown.
Is it possible to build the system.img in ubuntu and use it in windows.
I want to install a Bluetooth Application over my G1 device in linux environment.Please any Body provide me the procedure for this ? Whenever i am installing the application following error was thrown:-
I have a Samsung Galaxy S II and before I could transfer all of my music, pictures and everything else just fine. I recently got an update (AT&T) for ICS and now transferring 1 (3.32MB) .mp3 has taken upwards of an hour now.
So I just got a iPhone 4 as a work phone and I'd like to transfer my text messages and contacts from my Note 2 to my iPhone. Is there an app that can do this? I know there's many SMS transfer apps, but it seems like they are all for Androids only and none works for iOS.
I've got an HTC Inspire 4G (similar to the Desire HD). I've been rooted and S-OFF since January when I switched to CM7. That was fantastic until late May. Phone started to freeze randomly. I decided to try flashing new ROM and am now using a JB ROM called Jellytime.
1. Phone freezes randomly. Removing the battery is the only way to shut it off. The time to freeze seems to get shorter and shorter eventually freezing during the boot animation. I can go in and wipe data/factory reset, wipe cache, and wipe dalvik (I'm using CWM Recovery v18.104.22.168) and flash the rom and get a little use again. But most of that time is spent signing back in with google accounts and redownloading apps.
2. I can't flash other ROMs. I've tried flashing back to CM7 or to Android Revolution which is a stock-ish ROM with no luck. With CM7 I'd get an error in recovery a little while after it started that I don't remember off the top of my head. Android Revolution uses a different revoery or flashing tool (I think that's what AROMA is) When flashing that ROM, things go well until I get the following error at which point my choice is to reboot.
Code: assert failed:write_raw_image("/tmp/boot.img","boot") Once I reboot I am back in Jellytime.
3. Can't mount /cache CWM Recovery will throw up some can't mount and can't open /cache errors once I "Wipe Data/Factory reset" I believe the two places it tries are /cache/recovery/log and /cache/recovery/last_log
4. Can't format System I've tried to format the /system or /data partitions using Recovery only to have an "Error: Can't format /system" returned.
Have I got a corrupt partition? My eMMC chip is fine as best I can tell. I ran 'dmesg | grep mmc0' and got the following back.
This link shows similar output for a good chip. I can't find the page now that had the messages indicating a bad chip. (browser history far too full of pages that led nowhere)
So...Have I got a corrupt partition(s)? Is there something else I should check? Is there a way to test partitions to find errors? e2fsck? How can I reformat things (from adb is fine with some guidance) if this is my issue and if that is the fix?
i successfully got into adb in recovery mode fairly easily on my ubuntu 10.4 laptop using the following method- this should also work for a linux live boot from a usb flash drive
in one terminal tail and follow log messages ~$ tail -f /var/log/messages
In another terminal run the loop
1. plugin usb and keep it plugged in 2. remove battery, eject sd card. 3. put battery in 4. press vol- and power 5. after around 6 seconds, your terminal with the log will show something like "new high speed USB..." 6. press vol- to select recovery 7. press the power button 8. IMPORTANT- as soon as you see a new log entry (something like "USB disconnect"), pop in the sd card
check your loop terminal for adb. if it doesn't work, repeat at step 2
I purchased a 32gb micro SD for my pantech flex and I started adding music to it and files seem to keep getting corrupt after awhile is there a glitch with the flex or do I have to do it a certain way I tried putting it in my pc first to add files and then I tried USB cable but I only used MTP so far.. What I should do I also transferred them with es explorer.
Android and Linux kernels started re-merging at version 3.3. People said that a short way down the road, android apps would be able to run natively in linux. the kernel is now version 3.6 and I've heard nothing more about running android apps in linux. people on these and other forums put a lot of great work into getting linux running on android devices. now with windows 8 coming out, the market will be full of both ARM and x86 based touch devices of all sizes and shapes. I for one would love to be able to boot up ubuntu on one of these devices, and use either traditional linux apps or android touch apps as my mood and situation dictate. so- any new word on when we will be able to run android apps in linux?
Been following chroniccorey's linux mod for the gbox mx2, and am wanting to use advanced launcher to access the terminal to add firefox and a couple emulators to my xbmc. Unfortunately I can't seem to find the terminal, and ssh isn't working to apt-get from repositorys. I have some experience with linux, but am by no means pro.
I have managed to get my HTC sync work with my Windows 7 and it connects to my phone and says it is syncronishing but then nothing transfers from my phone to my Outlook. Does anyone know where I am going wrong or what I can try?
i read kubuntu 11.10 finally has integrated phone capabilities and is going to be heavily geared towards mobile devices URL....and development of Android execution environment for the android os that allows you tu run .apk in linux if so i think this would be full of win for kubuntu with it being the first linux distro with integrated phone capabilities and if the AEE was available that would just be the coolest phone ever
I have been trying all morning and half g today trying to get the bloody thing to instill. I have followed the instructions in the txt file inside but when I go into terminal and CD into the folder and type Android like the instructions day it cannot find three file or if I try it as ./tools/android permission denied and I sudoed in before hands so I have root access.
I got a wacom graphic tablett wich I want to use on my Android Tablet PC. Of course Android hasn't got a working driver for it, so thats why I want to install an opensource linux driver. So my first question is, if this might be possible. The linux driver is made for a 2.6 Kernel which of course is not complete the same as my 2.6 android Kernel, but are they similar enough to at least give it a try?
And I got an other question: A grafic tablett is you know... nothing else as a weird mouse so am I might be able to tell Android that it shoud use a simple mouse driver for the graphic tablett? Because my mouse is running well on it.
