I was just listening to some music and browsing FaceBook when my Xperia PLAY phone suddenly shut off last night I tried everything to make it start again, but nothing happends! I tried simply booting it up, removing the battery, tried Sony PC Companion and I even tried to flash it with FlashTool, but not even that would recognice it When I connect it to my PC while holding the BACK button, the phone actually shows up on my PC, but I still can't get it to work Ill try flashing it with FlashTool again, since I'm on a different PC now, but I think I'm going to have som trouble finding the drivers for QHUSB_LOAD
Any way to play a sound file while the bootanimation is playing on CM11(specifically beanstalk, but being as it is cm based...) the reason im asking is because i would like the option to play a sound file of my own choosing rather then have no sound at all.

I unlocked my bootloader a month before and I didn't know how to relock it back so I searched and found this website >>androidgadgematic I followed everything it mentioned and after finished installation, I hold on the boot button, the green light indicator blinked once and vibrated once but after that gave no respond. I didn't unroot my phone before doing the relock procedure. Now, I really don't know what to do because I searched google but none. I indeed need a step by step procedure to save my phone. How to boot my phone now, or else it is dead. I don't have if any method to reinstall ALL system files, no matter kernel, firmwares via my pc as long as it can helo my phone to boot up.
how to over clock.I mostly understand setxperia and setcpu. But do I need some type of custom kernel and if so do I need a certain type of ROM as well? My phone is Sony Ericsson Xperia Play R800at right direction.
My Xperia Ray has 44 MB free Phone space and 75 MB free Memory Card space. But I am not able to install a 6 MB app from the play store. I am also not able to update the existing google maps(5 MB update).
I have tried turning the phone off/on. I have tried installing/ updating apps repeatedly. No change. I'll be happy if I can find a solution without rooting my phone.
I have the latest Play-Store installed on my phone (which is a Sony Ericsson XPERIA x10) and although I have read in a bunch of forums that in the latest version you can go to "ALL" applications' section and delete the history of your downloaded applications by multi-selecting the desired apps (long press), it doesn't seem to be happening on mine.
I have rooted my phone a couple of times and the last time I did it ran really hot (as hot as 107 degrees) so I did a factory reset and after words it runs fine other than the fact that the lock screen and the home Key dont work anymore.
I just bought Sony Xperia S from online shop, when i use the phone i realize the phone does not have Play Store, so i decided to install it by myself. When i try to open the application, the Play Store will suddenly close. Until now i can't download anything from my phone via Play Store.
I've been having problems with my Xperia Play. Any app involving the internet would force close after being on it for a certain amount of time, which was no big deal, I would just restart my phone. But then it started happening more frequently, and it would force close sooner, sometimes even force closing as soon as I entered the app. Then this morning, I found that my WiFi was off (which was weird because i don't turn off WiFi at home). I went into my settings to turn it back on, locked my phone, and went to do something else. When I went to check Facebook, I saw that the WiFi wasn't on. So again, I went into settings, but instead of just pushing "Turn on Wi-Fi", I went into "Wi-Fi Settings". I saw that I had lost all my saved WiFi networks (including my house), and it wasn't picking any up, even though I know that there are multiple in my area. I tried re-entering my home WiFi settings, but that still didn't work. I did a few more times, then when it still failed, I restarted my phone and tried again. Still nothing. Then I went out, and was still unable to pick up any WiFi, and any internet based apps still weren't working, even with 3G on.
I have a problem with front camera doesn't work for me. When i choose to front camera so The screen is black and show me massage: the gallery doesnt work and then show message not connecting ro camera. It doesn't work on all rom.
Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not work. When I turn front camera so the camera is crashed but when I do restart. It working for a moment...after Doesnt work. R800i
I try to understand android boot sequence on my JB (under CM10). I found some docs and there should be specific partitions (boot, recovery, system, cache, data).
My understanding of the boot sequence is now:
A) normal boot: 1) Power ON -> 2) bootloader -> 3) boot-partition where i flashed the kernel aka boot.img -> 4a) system-partition with the OS (libs, UI, etc) where i unpacked over CWM my customROM.zip -> 4b) data-partition, where i unpacked google-apps.zip and installed all the apps -> 4c) cache-partition with user data
B) recovery boot (adb reboot recovery): 1) Power ON -> 2) bootloader -> 3) recovery-partition with CWM where i may unpack all the .zip stuff to proper partitions, or restore from sdcard, etc.
Is this correct? I wonder, because i didn't installed CWM into recovery-partition. It cames from install of CM10 (fastboot -i 0xfce flash boot boot.img), so it must be in boot-partition and not in recovery?
So, next confusion: i looked up to /proc/mtd and i don't see neither boot nor recovery partition here:
I did a backup with CWM and loocked the data. There aren't boot, and recovery backups:
# ls -lha /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/2012-10-04.18.49.55/ d---rwxr-x 2 system sdcard_r 4.0K Oct 4 18:56 . d---rwxr-x 3 system sdcard_r 4.0K Oct 4 18:49 .. ----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 1.6K Oct 4 18:54 .android_secure.vfat.dup ----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 54.6M Oct 4 18:55 cache.yaffs2.img ----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 360.2M Oct 4 18:53 data.yaffs2.img ----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 212 Oct 4 18:56 nandroid.md5 ----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 214.6M Oct 4 18:51 system.yaffs2.img #
So, i think i didn't understand the boot sequence and partition schema corectly.
Instead of seeing the boring old Android logo or my service provider's logo, I'd love to see the standard text-based Linux boot screen that shows the status of all the hardware and configuration info as my phone boots. My current phone is an HTC EVO 3D running Cool ICS with Sense 3.6 and Revolutionary CWM.
Recently I've been having an issue with Google Play Music where when I play a song, it plays for a second then pauses, so I have to press play to get it going again. This occurs repetitively which means I can't listen to music.
It happens on songs that are being streamed and on songs that are on the device.
Funnily enough, if the song is played through ES file explorer and the little play music popup window comes up, it plays fine.
I've got this issue on both my devices, a tf101 running 4.3 and a nexus 5 with stock 4.4 rooted.
Edit: just remembered, I've also got this issue with MX Player and videos. I can't figure out what's wrong.
Streamed videos played through the gallery video player work fine.
I got my x10 yesterday and played all day long. Everything was fine untill I try to upgrade the software.I used Sony Update Service software and it give error at the middle of the process.Now, I got explanation point on my screen when I turn it on. I can't do anything.Any ideas, how to fix?
Just upgraded my wifes X10 mini (unbranded UK version) using the SE PC Compaion. Followed all instructions etc, but its now stuck in a boot loop, restarting just after the full screen coloured animation "spins" into the SE logo and text.
I am not able to play any of videos except my Camera Recorded videos. I don't know what's the problem. Can anyone suggest me a good video player or how can I play avi,wmv,mp4 and all other videos on it?
