Sometimes (it's not usual, but sometimes it happens) my phone (Nexus one, CM7) runs quite slowly, and not fluent at all, just because of an app that is eating all the memory / processor. If I kill that app, problem solved.
When this happened the first time, I went to the running services section in settings, and I checked that the services listed are not ALL the running processes, so even if I kill all the services there, there are still running apps. Then, I tried to install several app killers, just to check if they kill all the running apps, but not only they don't list all the running apps, but also when killing all, there are still apps that keep running (like some games), and the only way I found to find them is checking one by one in the apps list, if they are running or not.
Is there any app to check at once ALL the running apps? I have looked for it, but all I have found are apps to do exercise ("running apps", D'oh!), and stuff like that?
I have an Acer Aspire netbook which dual boots Android and XP. I am trying to figure out how to (1) look at the file system (with a file manager type of interface), and (2) install an app on it (specifically one that I am developing). It seems like all this should be obvious, but the netbook isn't something that I can just hook up to my SDK using USB so apps don't install on it the same way that they do on (say) a Droid. The environment seems to be relatively closed compared to other devices. Maybe there is a way to ssh into it over the network?
I noticed on a lot of the other threads: "If you hold down 'home' you can see your running apps, so you don't need a task killer, just to exit the apps properly" However, on my Nexus I hold down 'home' and it just shows me the last 6 apps I've used. Is there a different way of doing this for the Nexus. or am I stuck with having to get a Task Killer/Manager?
I have used a number of task killers and I am still confused how the N1 deals with apps running in the background. I will kill all apps and then either not open any more or maybe open one and all of a sudden 5/10 mints later, some apps appear to be running again in the background. How can this be if I haven't activated them?
I'm new to both xda and android rooting. I just want to know what's the different between Kernel and ROM? Do you need to flash to the latest Kernel to increase stability while running a certain custom ROM? I'm just a bit confused between these two and what their function
Really sorry for all the screenshots. I own a Nexus One and Dell Streak and one thing that I find disappointing is that some apps don't run at the native resolution on the Nexus which makes things look blurry compared to my Streak. Examples: (all screenshots taken with the Android SDK) Now, I understand that the PenTile display will have an effect on image quality Vs my Streak but why does the N1 seem to be rendering things in a lower resolution compared to my Streak?
best way to retain internal storage space after installing rom after rom.I've tried to install quite a few roms over the past couple of weeks, and have noticed that the available HDD space on the phone's internal memory is becoming less and less each time. I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to the types of files the device (and current rom) need to run, so was wondering if there are any easy ways of telling which folders/files are needed and which ones aren't? Or, if there are particular folder(s) where old rom's data is kept that I could delete?
I'm using a Galaxy Note 2, which came with the Navigon app pre-installed by Samsung. The new custom rom I've installed doesn't have this app (and I don't want it) but I noticed there is still a folder on the phone called "Navigon", which I don't need. Deleting this folder freed up 0.25GB!... I'm wondering if there are any other easy (general) folders like this that I could delete?
My phone is down to less than a quarter of its space free and Jellybean doesn't seem to want to let us save apps to the SD..
So, my question is just what the title says. It's probably an incredibly stupid question, but i'm curious nonetheless.
Everyone keeps saying that the Hisense Sero 7 Pro has hardware that's basically identical to the Nexus 7 (grouper), besides the sd card slot, and I was wondering if it's possible to install a rom that's meant for one, on the other.
The main reason I ask is i'd like to install AOKP, PA, or even Ubuntu Touch on my Sero Pro, but I can't find a way to do this.
Even if there are roms that I haven't found yet that work on the Sero, I'm still curious about my original question...
After testing/installing the popular "GO Launcher EX" my sound is completely gone. Of course I uninstalled that GO Launcher EX asap but it didn't work.
My problems: - No sound during music, media, alarm etc while the sound volume bars all are maxed - Every few seconds or when I press something usually a weird "tik tik" sound, it feels like the sound hardware has died or something - When playing music you hear very low sound like "ZzzZZzzZzzz" like the hardware is not working or sound is not coming out
I tried factory reset and other ROMS but all failed so far
Phone: Galaxy Nexus Build (old when the problem occured): AOPK 4.1.2
I was thinking about rooting my Nexus 5 and instaling CM 11 on it. The only thing that stops me is the data I have on my phone. I don't want to lose everything when I instal CM, so any good backup facilities which can backup my games progress, pictures and stuff like that?
My work desktop running XP won't recognise my Nexus 4 when connected via USB. Have looked through various threads to try and find the answer and subsequently tried different USB ports, different cables etc but still comes up with the "found new hardware" wizard when plugged in. The cable and phone work when plugged into my laptop running Windows 7 so guess the problem must be with the desktop setup. The phone does charge when plugged into the desktop but the device is not recognised and I therefore do not have the option to explore.
I have seen the nexus 4 unroot toolkit, I have a Nexus 4 running 4.2.2, TWRP, and Franco.Kernel. i want to upgrade the Nexus 4 to 4.4 KitKat, i never had the chance to upgrade to 4.3 because i was rooted. I do not mind loosing my root, franco.kernel or twrp, i just want to be able to get the new updates that are being released from google, and OTA if possible. it is super important to me that i don't loose my apps and data.
I own a nexus s (not relevant for the question) it runs the CM7 rom, now i want to return to the stock rom and its ICS version but all of the files that i find online are for updates so my question is how do i install the stock rom from scratch?
I have a Nexus 7 running 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, with an unlocked boot loader and rooted. Since the 4.3 versions are now officially out, I was wondering how I would update. Is there any special process? Can I just use the normal OTA update service built-in? Will doing that lose my root and unlock? If possible, I'd prefer the most risk-free method, as I don't want to mess up my Nexus.
how to disable the low battery alert audio? I have disabled the popup, but I would like to also disable the audio. I tried deleting the lowbattery.ogg file in the root media file, but then it just played a different audio file for the low battery. I am on a rooted Nexus 5 running 4.4.2
I'm using a Nexus One running 2.3.4 and it looks like the gmail app version is 18.104.22.168 and I've noticed they've now incorporated the 'Important Labels' functionality into the app.
Problem is, I don't like/use/desire the important labels and now they're cluttering up my inbox view with a little yellow chevron next to the sender's name and the 'go to inbox' in the menu has moved and where it was is a 'mark important'
I had a look through the settings and I don't have priority inbox as my default, under label's there is a sync option for 'Important' which is set to 'None'.
Also I don't have the important labels for the web version of gmail proper on.
I think I may have accidentally marked one email on my phone as important (because that's where the go to inbox button was) so perhaps that's why they are showing up?
Any way to turn off/hide the important labels. Really annoyed that Google is making me find out how to opt-out of this feature rather than just asking if I wanted to opt-in
I've been tethering my N1 with PDAnet and have been very unimpressed with the speed. I haven't done a speed test yet but it is noticeably slower than when I used to tether my Sprint BB Tour. BTW, it shows 3G and all four bars of reception. Anyone have any tips or tricks to increase the speed?
I'm running cyanogen mod 9 on my samsung galaxy s plus and I don't really like some stuff like the file manager.I have downloaded a gb backup of samsung's stock file manager but whenever I try to install it I get the error"app not installed".I have tried to put it ino system/app and reboot my phone.It is there but still I can't install or use it. I don't really want to reflash the gapps...
Got a Samsung Galaxy Nexus that I continually use for Wifi Tethering. The only problem is that it tends to run hot and sometimes reboot since it's continually being used. Is there a way I can fix it with an app? Or is there a cooling dock I can use (like Laptops use)?
