Today I tried to restore my phone back to stock ROM and as I was trying to get into recovery mode and complete a nand restore but it wouldn't let me get in. It would just reboot me back into bootloader. I tried updating my superboot and recovery image to 1.7 and it's just stuck at the loading screen now. Is there anyway to restore it?
Prior to upgrading to 4.2.1, I made a NANDROID backup of my Nexus 7 (4.1.2) using mskip's toolkit. The restoration method copies the backup folder to the device (/sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/), then boots it into custom recovery. At first I was using TWRP 2, but I think I need to be using CWM, so I flashed CWM Touch. I actually went through the motions again of copying the backup over to the Nexus 7, but CWM Touch doesn't see the backup folder. It returns two messages when attempting to Restore:
1. Couldn't open directory 2. No files found
The folder containing the NANDROID backup and all parent folders are readable/writable/NOT Hidden, according to ES File Explorer, but I wonder about ownership.I'm rooted with SuperSU 0.99.
how to make CWM Touch, TWRP 2 or some manual method recognize and restore a NANDROID backup? I know I could just flash stock 4.1.2 and start from scratch (I have apps + data backed up), and if it comes to it.
The problem: Broken LCD display... The official Samsung service replaced the LCD display and installed 4.0.1. The result is that I lost all my data (all photos and videos are lost).
I tried every recovery tool available (from R-studio to Photorec)... No data recovered... Is there any chance to recover the previous configuration or may I start to take it for granted that all my photos are forever gone ?
Yesterday I got a sort-of-refurbished Nexus S (I9023) which was apparently not in such a good shape...Had problems flashing the system and userdata partitions (kept saying they were flashed fine but after reboot went back to their previous state).
I followed some tip without actually reading up on it and ended up formatting my bootloader partition.
Now, what I get is just a black screen no response or anything but using a tool called UnBrickable Mod I can get it back to fastboot mode and then boot into a recovery image and have adb access.
All in all, I am currently stuck cuz I want to flash a new bootloader image but what i get when i do that is:
Code: ~ # nandwrite /dev/mtd/mtd0 /bootloader.img Skipping bad block at 0x00000000 Skipping bad block at 0x00040000 Skipping bad block at 0x00080000 Skipping bad block at 0x000c0000 Writing at 0x00100000 Writing at 0x00140000 Writing at 0x00180000 Writing at 0x001c0000 nandwrite: not enough space in MTD device
I have read that NAND blocks tend to go bad when continuously being flashed, but 50% bad blocks on the bootloader partition? Seems pretty unlucky... Is it possible to resize the partitions without any JTAGing or writing custom bootloaders?
I purchased a Nexus 7 and found out that the google play contect from movies, books etc. is disappears from the device when you connect to a wifi spot outside the US, not very good for travelers. How can I restore the content once I gent back to US soil? Is there a way to force it? I tried a restart and that did not work.
I recently bought a Nexus S 4G from Craigslist. The phone has a cleam ESN but it has been flashed to Boost. How do I get the phone flashed back to sprint? All of the things I have found so far talk about installing custom ROMs and flashing to other carriers. I want to go back to stock Sprint.
OK so I am not rooted but I did the frf85b manual update ans ever since my phone has been glitchy as hell and my battery life has dropped horribly! I want my 2.1 back but don't know how to get it back.
When I first bought it, I was not happy with the features it was offering so I searched and found out about the CM7(Cyanogenmod 7) mod, and decided that I wanted to try out a modded phone. I've been using CM7 for a few years now and have just plain become unhappy with what they're putting out and decided that I finally wanted my phone back to being normal and rooted. I booted into my clockworkmod(after backing up all apps/data with TitaniumBackup pro & taking pics/vids/etc off through USB) and decided to wipe my sdcard and all other options that Clockworkmod offers. After doing that I realized I made a horrible mistake...every time I go to reboot my phone, it ends up back at the boot menu and at the top it says "Fastboot Mode - No boot or recovery IMG" how would I go about resetting my phone back to a normal OS without being able to transfer stuff onto it without it being booted and having a USB option.
I have a Nexus 7 2012 wifi version that I have updated to kit kat. I decided to root it but there's no way, believe me I've spent a lot of time on it. No driver available (or at least nothing works). I need to roll it back to jelly bean, then I should be able to get the correct driver and root it. So here's the 64 thousand dollar question: How can I take a device that's already been updated to kit kat and install jelly bean on it?
When you have booted into RECOVERY MODE, and you are either trying to make a Nandroid backup or restore, and you get a "Run nandroid-mobile.sh via adb!" error, then try these things: SD Card - it could be too full to write a recovery.Try deleting some things and try again. "Nandroid folder" inside your SD card -If you have renamed some of your backups, then this could also be an issue.Change the names back to what they were and try again.If anyone else has other experiences please feel free to add them here so others will have something to look at when in need.
I accidentally selected gmail to use as the 'default' application when I want to share a story in News & Weather. I meant to select Twidroid (for tweets)... now it's 'stuck' wanting to send to my gmail. Not good. How do I release it from gmail being the default (so I can make twidroid the default)?
Anyone update to the new version of the flash Beta.and then have flash disappear from there download list? I searched the market and it is there but when I hit downloads to view my downloads its gone. Off the list, where it was before. Weird, anyone else?
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 had original nexus one with ERE27. I manually updated that phone with "signed-passion-FRF50-from-ERE27.1e519a24.zip" this file. No for some reason I want to revert back. Can you pleas. help me how can I do that?
Some issues are correctable through doing a factory wipe. Other issues can be corrected through reloading the image from Google's own factory image repository. However, some things (in particular the battery drain issue) seems to be an issue within 4.4 itself, and the only solution I've found has been to revert from 4.4 to 4.3.
So I'm posting this thread and asking the more knowledgeable users here on AndroidForums to post clear, concise directions for acquiring and flashing these devices back to the Google "factory image".
The reason I'm asking for the community to pitch in is that the instructions I've seen are kind of scattered, are not necessarily up to date, and they can and do vary depending on whether you're doing this with Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8, or with Mac OS X, or with Linux.
I was able to re-flash my Nexus 4 in Lion back to 4.3, but I had to do editing of bash shell scripts and even then had to issue the execution of the appropriate shell script from the exact right spot or else it couldn't find the command, or couldn't execute the command. The directions on Google's site were incomplete, and the ones I found on various message boards seemed more like an author's "best guess" than authoritative "you can trust that this will work" workflows.
For anybody who is interested, the FM radio capability as seen on the HTC Desire phone, will be available for the Nexus on the next Modaco Sense ROM release (will be r.23 fixed due to a new kernel it seems (intersectraven's)Just had an interesting twitter feed and thought I would share.Not really interested in switching to Sense for this functionality but somebody may have been waiting for this
For me the Nexus one integration to MS Exchange is working fine except for one little problem. Although my inbox emails are getting push notified, I'd want an ability to choose other folders to get pushed also. I do not see any setting for that.
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'm a new Nexus One user, when I want to shut off the phone I have to use the back button to go through everything I've done for the phone to return to the home screen, if I don't the next time I turn it on, it will go to the last used screen. Is there a way to quickly get back to the home screen and deleting the others?
I'm contemplating if I should root my Nexus One mainly because I really want that extra performance boost. However I have a few questions. First will I still receive the OTA updates Google pushes out? And secondly, will I be able to revert back to stock android OS after rooting. And lastly, do all the Google apps work (mainly the Google GPS Navigation) without problems?
Tried connecting my bluetooth today to give a presentation using PPT Remote, but the computer has said that the peripheral driver is missing and I cannot use it as a paired device. It has discovered my N1 but won't connect. Any ideas?
I recently saw a thread about the forced 3g code for the n1. Basically the code keeps you from switching back and forth to edge. Anyone know how to remove the settings that enabling this code has added
