General :: Razr Maxx - Download Google Music Playlists Onto Phone
Jan 24, 2013
I have downloaded all of my music onto my phone because streaming it out of the cloud used about a gig in 3 days. One of the issues is that I could not find a way to download the playlists I had created in google music onto the phone. So, I created playlists on my phone, made sure all of my music was set to be on the device. As soon as I made a playlist on my phone it immediately began downloading those songs out of the cloud.
I just got the Razr Maxx. I am a mac user, and am looking for a way to consistently and conveniently transfer my iTunes PLAYLISTS to my Razr. I know transfering the music itself will not be a problem, the issue is synching the actual play lists.
I was downloading an update to a few apps when my phone suddenly froze totally. Can't turn it off or back on. Completely non responsive. This is my only phone so I am trying to find out how to do a hard reset or something similar.
When I first got my tablet it synced all my apps that I have on my phone onto my tablet. All me emails sync up but how do I get it to sync all the new apps again? It's annoying to have to put calendar appointments in both my phone and tablet. Same as every app I download on my phone. I seem to be doing double duty constantly. It did it once but never again.
got a new Maxx HD today. but haven't logged into my google account yet. Wanted to get ppl's opinion on using google to backup app data and auto restore it from my X2. I am thinking of disabling this as I want the "cleanest" install possible.
also, is there a way to prevent the phone from auto installing the apps that were on my X2. my bro went from a nexus to the razr maxx today as well and all his apps suto downloaded and installed. if there is no way to prevent this, then i guess i will uninstall the apps i dont want going to the new phone from my x2 first.
I think I'm going in the reverse direction of most people here, but my lapper hard drive died and took my itunes library with it. However, I have a backup of the music and playlists to Google Music and I'm using the Music Manager software to download my library back to my new PC.
My question is this...how can I get my Google Music playlists download to my PC and then synced to my new iTunes?
I have a razr maxx hd. How do I set my default email address to an existing gmail account. When I try to sign into that existing email account via the gmail app on the razr, all I get is a response, "The username or password you entered is incorrect".
Please note: I put another gmail address when I first got the phone.
Do I have to clear out the origional google account and or the gmail address to put the new gmail address in?
I rooted my phone with success and installed safestrap. But I goofed up and flashed a rom Specific to Verizon and the XT912. Safestrap made a copy of the stock rom, but when it is loaded the boot loader screen is distorted and resembles the image of the custom rom boot loader screen. What can I do?
I'm at the end of the day now and I'm going to list my battery usage on here. The battery life is definitely better then my old android but I know people getting over 15 hours so called 'heavy usage' If theres anything you see that I can turn off or lessen the usage of something. I feel like I'm either unaware of something running the background that's sucking up battery life like the music player or maybe possibly not getting full potential. I've already done a factory reset and added apps back in slowly but still same kind of battery life. I've turned off date connection and turn on wifi when I'm home and it hardly improves, also use smart actions. I'll accept the fact that I'm expecting too much. But I'm just curious about what other Maxx users are getting?
I recently rooted my razr maxx and want to install roms on it. I was going to install matts razr utility 1.82, but from what I understand it only supports ics. I have jb so I figured id end up with a bricked maxx.
I've noticed that despite having only four or five playlists on Google Music (desktop) my phone shows a bunch - mostly ones from albums I've downloaded. They don't show up in the browser version on my desktop so it looks like the only way to get rid of them is to manually delete every single one via the phone app.
Also, I've noticed that when I switch the settings to "on device only" my playlists created on the web page no longer show up, despite me having the majority of the songs on my microSD. I remember I used to be able to switch to "on device only" and the cloud playlist would scale down to only what I had on local storage. Was so....logical! Is there any way I can still do this? My microSD music is pretty much pointless since I don't have access to the playlists when I'm using "on device only".
Just got a razr maxx - Once I figure how to remove the microsd from the maxx (It's very tough to remove) I want to insert one I had in a Thunderbolt. What do I need to do to do so? I really just want my music and pics from the old phone...
I just purchased the Razr Maxx and am having trouble finding the original file of the picture. For instance, I would find an image in my gallary that is 1.41MB, but when I go under My Files, the closest I can find is the same image under DCIM>.thumbnails at 28k. Where would I find the 1.41MB image on my phone?
my Droid RAZR MAXX (4.1.2, not rooted) .So basically, whenever I have a notification in the notification bar (be it from the SMS app, WhatsApp, etc.) and I go to slide it down, the bar at the top disappears and then the background (the apps and widgets remain in place) goes to black for a few seconds then returns to the normal background repeatedly for several minutes. This keeps happening until finally the notification bar returns and the background returns to normal. While all of this happens, I cannot open any app. Upon selecting an app, it simply crashes right away. Doesn't matter which app it is. They all crash.
I should note that the exact same thing happens when I long-press the home button to bring up the running apps.
There have only been a few occasions where everything worked properly in the past few days. That is, I long-pressed the home button or dragged down the notification bar without any issues. I am not eligibile for a new phone upgrade until March 2014 so I am kind of stuck with this phone for now.
Since I got my Razr Maxx HD over a year ago... I've just "gone with" the "Circles". Accuweather is now trying to push free apps and doesn't seem to remember I want values expressed in F rather than C. Is there a way to replace accuweather on my home screen?
Can the RAZR MAXX be used as a wifi base station for a wifi bridge/repeater (NOROOT) - not tethering. i'd like to extend my lan network over my droid. I get full 4G in my house 20-25Mbps average, and i don't need cable internet. I have been using usb/wifi tethering for months and would rather use my Netgear B/G/N router's bridging function to connect all of my devices rather than the radio on my droid.
OS 2.3.6 kernel 188.8.131.52-g61e3522 build 6.5.1-167_DHD-14_M2-5 system 6.12.173.XT912.verison.en.us
I have a standard USA CDMA Razr Maxx, running GB 2.3.6. I moved to the bahamas before the ICS was available. I cancelled my Verizon service on my phone.
I tried to run the ICS update, but it failed (maybe due to my phone being rooted, or possibly because I have no carrier service).
I rooted my phone to unlock the WiFi feature back on the US, so I could use the 4G LTE superfast download speeds without having to pay for the WiFi feature from Verizon. So I've been in the root directory. I know there are tons of things you can manipulate. And I know that the ICS update unlocked the GSM radio.
My question is: Can I go into the root directory (using SQLite Editor) and unlock the GSM radio feature myself? Or do I have to update to ICS?
I have a droid razr maxx that is rooted and when i was messing around with stuff i seem to have messed up something with my texting app and it was gone. I found the app .apk in my system/app folder but when attempting to install it i got a "app not installed". Frustrated with it i decided to just factory restore and just start everything fresh. Did a factory restore and my texting app is still not there and i still cant install it.
