Will I lose apps and data of the apps if I root? [Galaxy Tab 10.1 3G running 4.0.4] any app [doesn't matter if it requires a computer as long it works with my tab 10.1] that can backup my apps and data?
everytime i installed a custom ROM preferrably CM7 Apocalypse, i always lost my data connection, i dont know why this thing happen, then last time i installed CM7 Apocalypse again (changelog dated 9/7/2012 by itasoulas) i still lost Data Connection though i follow the instructions given, plus i cant receive a message even though i installed a messaging app. im tired im reflashing my phone back to Stock Rom over and over again .
I'm on a family plan with my wife and 13yr old son. We purchased a Galaxy S4 for our son as a Birthday present in October. However, as of recent his grades have taken a dive. We notice he eats, sleeps and breathes on the phone. He primarily uses it for surfing the net, instagram or youtube. We were thinking of grounding him and removing his phone but we need him to have his phone as a point of contact. However, is there anyway to stop his data usage. I realize there is a setting on the phone to disable data usage but it is fairly easy to re-enable it.
Is there anyway to lock or password protect the phones settings or data usage?
I tried googling but the results kept yielding information relative to the "lock screen" which isnt what im looking for.
I lost my phone and it doesnt have an unlock pin so theres nothing stopping access to my phones data....
Its an HTC Magic and syncs to my google calendar. I've reset my messenger password so im guessing altho they get into my ebuddy app automatically, the messenger password on the phone will be out of sync and wrong? I've chosen "log out of everywhere" from Windows Live. I've rest my Evernote password. I dont have any apps that can help me find phone or send an erase message to the phone.
So all thats left I guess is my Google calendar. I suppose its not a train smash having my Calendar data on the phone, but I'd like to erase it. If I go to Google Calendar and delete all the appointments will that delete the appointments if my lost phone syncs, and i think ive set it to sync every time the calendar app is run? Also, with contacts, i seem to remember those not syncing very often, only when i went into settings and contacts on the htc, so im not sure of how to get rid of all the contacts on my phone even if I delete them all from my Google Account.
Recently i received a unbranded 7" tablet with ICS firmware which was locked permanently because of too many wrong attempts to unlock device. I used adb to break the lock and successfully booted it again for regular use.
First you require the following things: 1. usb debugging active on your device(if debugging is not on then you cannot use this method) 2. adb shell on your computer (follow this thread for adb [URL] .....) 3. usb cable to connect your device to your pc or laptop. 4. Usb debugging drivers if not installed from here [URL] .....
How to unlock: 1. connect your device to pc and install drivers. 2. open the folder where you installed the adb for dummies and search for adb.exe 3. right click holding shift on the free space in folder containing adb.exe and select open command window here. 4. typre following commands separately by pressing enter after each line:
adb shell cd /data rm -r data reboot
Your device will reboot and you will not have any password to enter and a free unlocked device again.
NOTE- this will not work on all devices but it will work on unbranded , chinese and local tablets . i confirmed this method on CHAMPION WTAB 7.2 AND KROSS tablet ics. Be careful not to delete the /data folder, you have to delete data folder under data folder(/data/data). so just enter the commands as they appear and it will be fine.
I connected my phone to my pc via USB and noticed that my phone storage was pretty full so I decided it would be a great idea to transfer the DCIM folder from my phone storage into my card storage..my camera photos are no where to be seen!
I unplugged my phone from the computer after looking at pictures, When I went to go back into the gallery they were all gone and so was the Camera file located normally in the DCIM file. So I have lost all my pictures that were on my SD card where I had them stored after taking them.I unmounted the card and tried to look that way also.
Basically my brother's mates racked up a $100 data bill using youtube so I would like to disable mobile data and lock it with a password or similar, I would just change the APN but I'm sure they could figure that one out.
I have heaps of added apps on my Galaxy Gio, as a result of which (despite rooting and moving all I can to SD card) I'm forever running out of memory (I presume this means RAM - I'm a bit new to all this!). Sometimes I can't even do an update of an existing app without it aborting due to low memory.
So today I went through the apps list and cleared the data for every app that I thought I didn't use. BUT all my carefully arranged home screens (full of my own app icons) disappeared, and reverted to the phone default icons!
I can eventually rebuild my several home screens, but I'd like to learn which particular app's data stores that information (home screen layouts), so I don't ever clear it again!
I just got a Milestone 3 (Droid 3) from Alltel (the Alltel that was divested from the Verizon buyout), who is actually Atlantic Telecom Network. They are a great local carrier who has the best coverage in my area.
I rooted the phone, installed various wireless tether apps but whenever I use any of them, I instantly lose my 3G data connection along with a message that says "3G data link lost". Sometimes is comes back right after turning the hotspot off and other times I have to reboot. It never happened with Verizon.
Having issues with Tapatalk returning an incorrect username/password for XDA while on data? This issue only presents itself while trying to access XDA on data, no such problem on wifi, or for any of the other forums I frequent whether on data or wifi.
Password manager that can sync between multiple devices? The only one I found was Keeper but it's $10 for each install which would run me 20-30 bucks for 2-3 devices. My wife and I need to be able to access password/logins and share the data.
I randomly lose my data connection. It happens whether I'm using 3g or wi- fi. And it doesn't matter witch rom I got flashed on my hero. I've been rooted for quite some time now, so I doubt I'm making a noob mistake. Although I'm no rom writer, so I could missing something.
How do you say a password to an android application. For example, I want to set a password to the gallery application because I don't want people to see my pictures. Could I set a password to it whether it is a number pin or a side type thing?
From what AT&T tells me I can't swap SIM (with an adapter) back and forth or I will lose my unlimited data plan. Is this true? I find that incredibly annoying if so. I want to be able to use whichever phone I want at any given time.
On my motorola droid and other andriod devices there is a known issue where if you enter too many incorrect pattern attempts it ask's for your google email/password but doesnt accept it. Even though its the correct password, the only fix is a hard reset. Is that bug still around on the incredible or has google fixed it?
I know this is not really the place to post this message, but this is the closest thing I could find to google android support. So a friend of mine did too many wrong patterns and the phone is asking for my username and password. When i fill in my login and password, it says "invalid username or password". I tried it like 20 times.I have of course verified the username and password on my gmail, and it works fine. Has this ever happened to anyone ? Is there a way around it ? I refuse to reset my phone to factory settings, i have all my contacts, and important notes in there.I was really looking forward to android, but stuff like this is just unacceptable, really disappointing.
Is there an app to unlock my HTC Incredible by either voice OR alpha/numeric? For example in a crowded area I might want to type it, but if I'm alone in my car rather than typing I might want to just speak it out loud.
HTC Droid Incredible running Froyo 2.2 (Custom ROM, forgot the exact name but nothing to spectacular)
I forgot my numeric password to my phone. I do not get the option to put in my gmail user id and password, and i dont know how i would reset my password! (have tried over 100 times and I do not get the option to use gmail user id and password.
However, I have full root access, as well as ADB (running unrevoked forever)
I have an Exchange account that requires a password; with the newest firmware update as of June 29, that works fine. However, when I input my password on the unlock screen, it shows it in plaintext and doesn't mask it as I enter each letter as most phones do. Under the Security settings, I do not have "Visible passwords" checked, so the password shouldn't show, but it does.
How many of you guys actually use the pattern lock or password before you can use the phone. I have been debating whether or not its a waste of my time b/c even if I get my phone stolen I'm not getting it back. My friends that use my phone can't go through my personal stuff b/c I have a file locker. Even if I did have the pattern lock did anybody create a way to hack it and unlock it like they did with the iPhone?
