This is the second time this has happened to me now. I changed the starting activity of my app, and put out an update, and now the icon on people's phone will not open my app. The only way they can open it is through the downloads section of their Android Market app, or if they uninstall and reinstall the app, causing them to lose ALL their data. I have no problem with updates on my N1, but every other Android phone has a problem with this. Why?
A long time ago, on a 386 far, far away, some people would regularly boot Linux from DOS/Win16/Win32/Win95/etc... using a utility called loadlin. Loadlin would basically grab the system from the short and curlies, and load a target kernel into RAM, and jump directly into, which would effectively be running the kernel in practically the same way as if LILO had loaded it.
Would it be possible to actually make a Linux kernel module which did the same thing? Modules can be loaded at bootup, so it could be configured on a rooted system to load this module, which would effectively jump to a new kernel, throwing the old one out of memory.
After a brief hiccup yesterday I managed to flash, with Rom Manager, TpT on my Evo. Since it gave me the option of using Kings #11 CFS, I gave it a shot but it caused screen tearing all over the place. I re-flashed with just the Rom itself and its been working great, but the kernel is still the stock HTC #11.Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't TpT supposed to come with a custom kernel from Adrynalyne(from what I gathered by reading on other forum posts)?
I have 9 Favorites set up on my Incredible, 8 of them work perfectly (I have them fixed up so that when I choose the person, the entire address card comes up so I can choose to call, email, text or whatever), and the ninth (set up only to place a telephone call) used to work perfectly, now not so much.When I select the contact, I get a message that says "Call not sent, no valid number entered".I have looked at his address card, and all seems correct.I have not changed anything so really don't know what is going on.I thought maybe if I deleted this one contact and then re-added, it would fix it, but when I try to delete this one, the phone looks like it wants to delete the other 8 as well, and I really don't want to have to set this up again (actually, can't remember how I got them to show the whole address book entry).
I am working on building from aosp 4.4.2. I have built it with the pre-built kernel without any problems. Then, I managed to get a custom kernel code in place and it builds. Now the only thing left to do is the initramfs/ramdisk for the custom kernel I have in place. Currenlty my build will not boot. I suspect it is using the initramfs/ramdisk from aosp.
Any source files or files that handle the initramfs/ramdisk? I have found bits and pieces strewn throughout the source code but cannot pinpoint the indivitual files or the script/mk file that produces the ramdisk found in the out folder after my system finishes building.
I know I can change the initramfs/ramdisk manually by repacking the boot.img, but I would prefer everything be completed in the updatpackage.
when i am composing a text message, sometimes the box of the entry goes larger and goes back smaller, is there a way to increase the text entry box size, say, double tap on it to bring up a whole screen text entry area?
I like to add addresses to my phone book in Android. As a lot of my contacts live in buildings i also like to add the floor and apartment number to the address: Looking like that:
Street and Number, Floor and Department number Town, zip code State Country
Av. Whatever 12345, Floor 5-A Buenos Aires 1007 Argentina
When clicking on the address the GPS of my wish opens , finds the country, city but not the street because of the additional Floor and department information. Without this additional information everything well with Google Maps or Sygic.
So, how should i add this additional Floor and department information to my address without the GPS has problems to find the main location.Also from ICS on there is only one filed to add the whole address not as with Gingerbread where you had a field for street, city, etc.
I have noticed that when using my phone to reply to a long string of text on forums (or at least some of them) I seem to hit a roadblock at some point. By that I mean, if I wanted to reply to a message like I am typing this right now, if I want to scroll down to the bottom I am unable to if the length of the text reaches a certain point. Or in another situation, I could be typing my reply, but once I write enough to reach that limit I am unable to type any further. This only applies when wanting to reply at the bottom of the string of text. There are ways to work around the issue, but in certain cases they aren't always preferred.
Is there any possibility to have a calendar entry remind a call with direct CALL action?I miss the old days when dumb phones had possibility to have a call reminder set up in calendar with a number to call.
I would prefer to have it in google calendar, no third party apps.
I have my phone set to sync with my Exchange account (mainly for calendar use). Would ideally like to have a shortcut on the calendar app to create an event (or on the home screen for that matter), but no... you have to drill down into the calendar menu to find the "create event" menu item...
I installed customROM works fine. then I reverted back to stockROM then IMEI is gone. I tried the Engineering mode thing, I tried multiple IMEI Writers non of them works for me. I always have this error "meta mode entry fail" for some reason I don't know what to do.
I have vanilla linux kernel version 2.6.27. I want to apply android specific patches and convert it to android linux kernel 2.6.27. Where can a user find the patches to convert a normal vanilla kernel into android kernel?
1. I updated to stock 2.1 using the sprint update tool. 2. I followed the video tutorial to root the phone 3. then i used joey's page (http://www.joeyconway.com/sdx/custom/index.php) to install the his kernel (joeykrim-SDX-kernel v2.0.4 (includes root)).
I have done nothing else to the phone but this and removing a couple of bloatware apps (i checked the list of permitted deletions before i removed anything.) I have not installed a new recovery..at least i dont think that I did as part of one of the other operations I performed (as an aside, i am not really sure what the custom recovery is or what it is used for, so i didnt install it...i guess i need to read up more...)
So that is where I am..but i have a couple of questions.
1) i am now having issues with my wifi connection - the signal reception is very spotty in areas where i should have atleast 2 bars of reception, and the wifi often cuts out completely....Is there any know corellation between joey's kernel and this wifi issue? I have searched the forums and have found nothing that answers this.
2) Is there an easy way to get back to the stock kernel? I have read that i can get back to stock everything by using the sprint download center where I did my original 2.1 update. But is there a way to get back to just the stock kernel without wiping the phone?
I'd like to run a simple script once a day to automate fstrim on my /data and /cache partitions with the output going to a file with a date and time entry. The script is easy but I don't know how to automate it. I'm running 4.2.2 on an HTC One X+. I'm rooted and have busybox 1.22.1 installed.
Just getting used to my HTC Desire, after reading your forum I was comforted regarding battery life and it seems much better now than the first few days. I see another post on this but no answer, the address book only gives one line of the address is then any way round this? Even my first pda a Psion 3 had the option of which fields to display etc. there seems very little option to format what is seen, not that I am unhappy about the rest but to have to edit to see all the address is barmy. Another thing way back then that still is not found is search all fields of the contacts, i.e. to find a number of someone that rang on another phone.
I want to UNLOCK my ROGERS Samsung Galaxy Note to use it with a telus network. How do i do this? and what is the point of rooting? i keep searching but it brings me no where but to websites u have to pay i already paid for a code but they said the imei isnt valid
I have been assigned the task to use an android tablet to run a single app in an enterprise setting. Ideally, when one switches on the tablet this app should be loaded perhaps during startup and the user need not step out of this app. The app logic itself is rather easy but I am wondering if it is at all possible to load a single app during load and not allowing the user to step out of it.
i had my phone sitting on my desk. they i noticed the phone was off with the battery caution exclemation point symbol on the screen. my phone a few hours before was fully charged. i plug it in and it is stuck at 13%.
