Bought a nexus 5 and cut and pasted 6 lecture recordings from my old GS3 to my nexus 5. Rooted the nexus 5 and deleted (accidentally) all the recordings. Is there any data recovery program or tool that I can use to retrieve them?
So, ctrl+x from gs3 ext memory card to ctrl+p onto nexus 5 internal storage. Wiped nexus 5 and now can't be found anywhere.
These recordings are extremely important (I know I lost them, I dont know what I was thinking)...
I'm having problems with my phone's bluetooth. Pairing is successful, but sending any sized file fails instantly. I'm not sure if it has anything to do with it, but the first time i tried it, it was successful - at least partially. I was half way through sending a 250MB file to the phone when it got interrupted (can't remember how, i might have accidentally disabled bt part way through). Since then, all attempts fail sending to, and from phone.
I used both windows explorer and media go to copy video and photo files to my phone card. I can see them on the card but when i unmount and i search them on the phone i can't find them. Is there a setting i'm missing?
I Just got galaxy a few days ago, that's my first android and I'm really happy with it (especially after flashing to drakaz's ROM). But, there's one issue though: Since I'm using a motorcycle as my main vehicle, I'd like to mount the phone above the gauges and use my H350 For voice navigation when using GPS/phone calls/music.
(GPS navigation is the main reason for doing this). I've managed to pair the headset with my phone, under settings. I see my H350 with the following status: "Connected to phone audio". But still, except making phone calls, I can't hear music/any other audio with my bluetooth headset, it comes out of the phone's speaker instead. Is there any workaround/hidden setting I didn't see? I'm using "waze" for GPS btw.
I'm trying to write an Android widget that shows how much data has been transferred over 3G/WIFI/EDGE but I can't seem to find the API call, even though other widgets do this. Does anyone know what the API calls are to get the data usage?
My nexus one phone crashed a week ago, I reseted the factory settings, and since then I can't find the power control system(wifi, gps, Bluetooth and screen brightness) widget which I had on my home page when I first bought the phone.
I am trying to put some photos from my phone onto my computer. I've connected it all up like I usually do but can't find the phone on my computer drives. It's just not there like it usually is. What on earth have I done?
I have a Nexus 4 and the lack of USB OTG is quite depressing, I want a Bluetooth hub to which I can connect a USB keyboard and mouse, I need the Slimport for HDMI out so I can use my phone like a computer with an HDMI cable.
Are there any products out there that connect to a phone via Bluetooth and have multiple USB port host functionality?
I am unable to find any tar / md5 files of the stock rom for VM & Sprint Intercept. Yes, I am looking for both carries of that phone. The reason I need the tar file of the stock rom is because the sprint phone can't flash anymore roms through the customer recovery [InXane CM01] and the Virgin Mobile phone is stuck at the black screen [SemiBrick / SoftBrick].
I have tried google searches, but most return me to dead links or that damn mirror website multiupload, SDX forums' search is down? & google's search can't connect to the webpages on sdx forums, I have tried with three different browsers on SDX forums, and google file search doesn't return anything. Any links containing the desired tar/md5 files.I need to find tar files of the following.
The only thing I can find that is worth while is the link below. I was able to download the tar files, BUT I am unable to connect to the original SDX Forum webpages. This is troubling, because I don't know what the status of the tar files are and if they are stable or working or if they will cause more troubles.
However through some google searches, I found this. The tar file is Android 2.1 Eclaire [FD27] for Sprint phones.
Returning to stock with SWUpgrade in a tar format. [Link here] NOTE: I did not install the update, Android 2.2 Froyo, because the link is dead. However installing custom ROMs from this point does NOT require it. Confirmed this on Stock on Crack 1.1.2. OR SDX Forums > Samsung Intercept > Intercept - Android 2.2 > Intercept - Development 2.2 > [ROM] [EC07] [DL05] [FB01] StockROM on Crack 1.1.2 (9.0+ MFLOPS!)
I believe the VM Intercept stockROMs works as well. When testing it on the phone, it was able to fix the soft-brick. However, I believe my phone's LCD screen is broken. I can hear all the setup sounds and feel the vibrates from the phone and even click on random menu options, but I can only see a black screen with a soft backligh to it. Sometimes the screen turns white, but nothing else appears on it. Bad LCD screen right?
I am trying to find a Bluetooth speaker that can retain in its memory multiple devices (5 preferred but 3-5 is okay too). I know the Bose Soundlink does this, but it is more money than I want to spend right now. I have an imonster, but it only remembers one device at a time.
how to find permissions a given application has. Each app is run as a certain user, so wouldn't finding the file permissions of an app be the same as finding the file permissions of a user? On Linux/Unix there is the find command but I don't know of any alternative command that is available on android. I am running KitKat 4.4.2 kernal 3.40-gadb2201.
I own a Chevy Camaro SS 2012 that has Bluetooth handsfree built in. Works like a charm with my friends LG phone with Android, as well as with my company iPhone 4S.
But with my Samsung Galaxy Nexus running native Android 4.2.2 it will pair just fine, but I am only able to hear the sound and use the mic in the car, but not engage any functions nor access the contacts list. So I cannot answer calls, or make new ones etc...
The problem is not in the car as it works fine with other phones, and I've tried to reset everything on both the phone and in the car and then re-pair them, without any success. Nobody on the Camaro forums knows how to proceed.

I got a Nexus 4 recently and I have retired my HTC Desire Z (G2).
Since I have a 32GB MicroSD card in my Desire Z I want to use it as a MP3 player in my car. I have it plugged in via aux and power. I have installed tasker and created Profiles to start and stop music when I turn on/off my car.
So everything is great until I want to skip the song. Any way to control the music playing on my Desire Z from my Nexus 4?
I've searched to no prevail. id like to start developing apps but am having issues getting the environment set up. I have the jdk properly installed.
issue 1 (main major ):
I've installed the android sdk from multiple sources, but when i try to start sdk tools, the command prompt flashes/ opens briefly and i get this message:
"Failed to execute toolsandroid.bat: The system cannot find the file specified."
Do i need to change a PATH variable or something...
I cannot get eclipse to run. when i try to open the exe file ( because there is no short cut icon...?) it gives a message about not finding a companion library... ive try to change the properties in the file that is supposed to fix it, but it was already set the way its supposed to be. this is not major as i can use a different IDE.
so im completely lost as to th sdk tool. I just tried adding the file path to the android sdk ( PATH variable) and it still did not work... I also just tried start the android,bat file and the cmd promt flashes briefly saying somthing about xcopy is not an operable command...etc couldn't read all of it... I am on windows 7 home premium
How to find list of SYSTEM LOCALES (language list that we see in settings) from ROM file system image/file tree (assuming that /system can be mounted as folder)? Which files/folders have this information?
I received a Text message sent from an E-Mail and I was wondering if it was possible to find the individual file on the filesystem holding the metadata for the E-Mail.
If so, would I have to root the phone? And where would that file be located?
I'm a techie, so no need to warn me that I could hurt my phone or files - I'm only looking to READ, not WRITE, and I'd be making a copy of that file beforehand anyways and porting it to a PC in order to check it with whatever program is necessary to decrypt (Probably only need a hex editor.)
