Fellow droid incredible users, I am trying to root my phone with unprovoked and i have the 2.2 system on my htc incredible. I'm unable to find "debug mode" in the settings and i need it on to apply the unprovoked root. Please help me find debug mode.
In Ubuntu, I have double checked the udev rules. They all look perfect. (I cross checked using another phone too). The USB debug mode doesn't show up no matter what. And I have the adb_usb.ini in the right place. I have tried running all possible combinations of running adb, adb start-server as root. But
adb devices shows no devices at all.
However, with the USB debugging option enabled on phone, it worked on Win7 after windows installed a Common handset driver.
If I go back to Ubuntu without disconnecting the cable and do
Code: $ adb devices * daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 * * daemon started successfully * List of devices attached 1234567890ABCDEFdevice
The product id is 1234567890ABCDEF and I am able to see it and everthing works fine!!But the moment I disconnect the USB cable, its gone.
So I guess it's not the development machine that is at fault. The device seems to be setting a property while in Windows which stays latched till the usb connection goes off.
Btw the Code:
/data/property/persist.service.adb.enable is 1 too.
I have a completely broken screen/lcd/digitizer on my Samsung Galaxy S3, debug mode was not on. The phone works as it will still vibrate when turned on and the LED / Menu / Back buttons light up during a boot. USB connector works as well. The phone was not previously rooted.
I had most important data on the sd card and I've already wrote off any other data on the phone as I've since moved on to a GN2. I would like to make use of the S3 (not necessarily as a phone but a server, security camera, etc.). I've read several posts here about my options and looked at numerous google articles, all seem to require debug mode being on or assume/require the data/OS must remain as this is what the user is trying to recover. I do not care if all data is lost on the phone, I just want to make the device useful again.
Am I out of luck if debug mode was not enabled or can I flash through adb via some obscure mechanism? Also note that fastboot is not an option here as the S3 (samsung) does not have it enabled. I am unable to get into "Download Mode" as I cannot see info on the screen.
i have recently purchase a tab but there is a problem with the internet connection when ever i plug my dongle it only catches 3G network not 2G i have tried to go to setting but i can't find anything i have found there is a option in access point to connect with ehrpd network and lte network there is nothing like 2g or Gprs
1. I just got done perusing 10 pages of hits for "airplane mode" and everyone is trying to do something opposite of what I'm doing.
2. I'm not really that android-savvy. Just good at following instructions.
QUESTION: How do I enable Airplane Mode "permanently" so that a child cannot disable this mode?
EXPLANATION: I have several android devices (Droid Xs, specifically) that have clean ESNs and are not currently being used on any carrier. I also have children (5,3,1).
I've SBF'd, rooted, and removed all unnecessary APKs, leaving only a few educational apps and games for the children to use. And, yes, I enable Airplane Mode. They love having their own little "mini" tablets and being able to be like the grown-ups.
Unfortunately, the oldest has a knack for pushing all sorts of buttons and inadvertently turning the phone's radio back on. I know that I have not associated the ESN with any carrier; however, as I'm sure most of you know, when you dial a number with a non-subscribed number, it still asks you if you want to make the call and charge it to a credit card - at least, this is what the phone did the last time this happened.
So, bottom line, I want to disable my child's access to any carrier's cellular and data networks. And I want to be the only one that could possible re-enable that access.
If there was some way to enable Airplane Mode "permanently" and remove access to all toggles, settings that could disable Airplane Mode, then this would ease my mind. Obviously, I would want this condition to exist only until I either reflashed the phone or had to do something very convoluted (perhaps editing some setting manually via command line or ADB?).
i wanted to know that how can i enable physical keyboard mode on android without actually having a physical keyboard connected to the device. i just want to enable HID mode on my device without a keyboard. I AM Rooted
I have chinese phablet mtk8389 hd89 dual sim, 1gb ram, gps,quadcore, wifi,bluetooth,and microusb port problem is that if i connect it to any otg or usb cable to connect with computer it dont show any response but just start charging then i find oht a solution that i need to fix a file insode android system/etc/permissions name of file android usb host .xml i go to file and add the file but actually file not get added even i cannot edit any system file because i dont have permission then i find out that for doing that i need to root the device but how stupid is that if i dont have usb host mode active how i can onnect my device with computer for root?
It does not connect even dont show in computer that some usb device ger connected its very complicated, how i can enable usb host mode with out root device and if i have to root the device how i can root with out usb mode not working because with out usb host me the device will not be connected . i think my device is not rooted but i have acces to android all system files but i am unable to edit any file like it have write protected .
I just bought this phone three weeks ago and It was working well .. then I tried an App (pimp my rom) and I forgot to enable Usb Debugging mode so I restarted phone then Found a message ( Unfortunately, Launcher has stopped ) and when I press ok it shows again .. I can only switch on/off wifi bluetooth GPS and those stuff on Notification bar but I cant enable Usb debugging mode because settings crash with ( Unfortunately, Settings has stopped ) No menu No home screen .. only those messages with a useless notification bar I tried everything possible to recover this phone but failed because The computer cant define the device because of the Debugging mode and when I try to flash a rom by recovery mod it tells me signature failed Is there anything I can do for this phone? or its over?
I have a brand new Galaxy Tab that I am trying to use for some development. However, the usual method of installing the ADB driver isn't working on my Win 7 x64 version. (I have even tried the USBDeview method of deleting everything that looks like an Android device.)
Has anyone out there gotten this to work? If so, what did you have to do?
I'm trying to figure out a way to programmatically determine if my build was built in debug mode vs. release mode. I'd like to hide some items in my settings screen if it's release. When I build my app in Eclipse I'm building by default in Debug mode. However, when I build the app using the command line, I build it in release mode and sign the app using the jarsigner tool.
I've tried using: PackageInfo appInfo = manager.getPackageInfo("com.adobe.psmobile", PackageManager.GET_SIGNATURES); to test if appInfo.signatures.toCharsString() matches my debug signature and that didn't seem to work.
I'm now trying to see if I can introspect the app's KeyStore, to match the default debug alias described here: http://developer.android.com/guide/publishing/app-signing.html of "androiddebugkey" but I haven't figured out how to retrieve the app's KeyStore yet.
my android application runs in debug mode only even if i click the run button of the eclipse or run it by touching on its icon on the device. what will be reason for this?? anybody has any idea about it?
I have a activity B that is called by activity A, I want to debug the code in B. I have set the breakpoint, however the debug control never enters B.
When I debug in eclipse, although the class B is called from class A, the debbugger pointer never enters the new window, where I have placed a debug point in Class B. I am not able to take the pointer control to class B and stop at a specific point, which will help me verify certain variable values.
I have an android application that parses some HTML, downloads an image, and displays it. I'm using an AsyncTask to do the HTML parsing and image downloading, but that shouldn't be relevant. I never have a problem when I'm on WiFi on my phone, when I'm using the Eclipse debugger on my phone, or when I'm using the emulator. When I have my phone on the cell network (even with pretty good reception), the image sometimes fails to display. I'm having a hard time figuring out what is wrong, since the problem cannot be reproduced in the debugger. Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong?
Update: I have narrowed it down to the image downloading function. This way my original code:.......................
I built a mobile SDK and SaaS service that allows an app developer to enable car mode for their app. Our solution essentially provides a flexible mechanism to convert your app's content into an audio playlist.
I enabled debug mode in the native browser to change the UA String. I typed in "about:debug" in the address bar. I then went into settings and changed the UAString to 'Desktop.' Now, every time I open the browser = force close. Yes, I tried rebooting. What are my options?
Is there any way to enable car dock mode on an Incredible? I don't mean just starting the car dock app, but having it automatically start when you put the phone in a dock. I know it works on motorola phone with magnets. I've been using Custom Car Home and it's supposed to take over the Home button when you're in a car dock, but doesn't work on the Incredible since we don't have fancy magnetic docks. I read on the EVO board that the new HTC car dock for the EVO puts it in car dock mode and was wondering if there was a way for us to enable this too. Perhaps a special USB charging cable to use in the car that sends some sort of signal?
I want to control the system settings "auto brightness", setting it ON or OFF.I'm able to control the brightness level but only if AUTO is OFF. From what I read until now there is a SCREEN_BRIGHTNESS_MODE in Settings.System but only for API level 8 or higher and also not recommended to mess wit it. But currently my phone has Android 2.1 (API 7) and there are widgets that can control this setting (enable/disable auto brightness and set the level). How is this done?
