I have recieved a message (official OTA ) on my Desire to download Froyo. After the download it says that the file is corrupted. I have an 16gb card, do i need to put the original card when downloading/instaling the Froyo? Theres a file that i can put in my sd card and it automat installs froyo?
I have a Desire from Vodafone (UK) that came with its practically invisible branding. Voda recently put out an update (that I have not installed yet) that would load it up with a bunch of branding bloatware. Word is that when they put out their Froyo update, it will have the same unremovable bloatware. I'd rather not have that.
If I root my Desire (with, say, unrEVOked) and install an official stock Froyo ROM (such as was received by those with completely unbranded Desires), what happens after that? Will I then have an essentially unbranded Desire that receives automatic OTA updates for bug-fixes (and, just maybe, Gingerbread)?
Or will I be stuck with a possibly buggy version of Froyo while waiting for a similar root-method to develop to install a bug-fixing patch?
Been holding of rooting & upgrading to one of the custom froyo roms untill the offical release of froyo for desire. Quick question are we ok to root after this new froyo update or will the new froyo update patch this proccess in someway to prevent us from doing us ....? if so i may do now so i dont lose ability to root.
I have a desire which is updated to froyo and has the new 2.10.405.2 update which is OTA installed on it ( not to sure what the update was for something about RUS keyboard) anyway I was wondering if any of this will effect me rooting my phone and if it is worth rooting seeing as I already have froyo with sense but I was thinking stick vanilla froyo on there to make it faster or a different rom, will doing this make my phone faster and less prone to crashing sense all the time which is what happens now.
Also any risks involved with rooting froyo? Also I have a fully unbranded desire and can sumone suggest a good rom to flash?
Just plucked up the courage to root my Desire. And now want to have a go at installing Froyo and looking for the easiest way. I've looked at ROM Manager and was wondering if its worth getting the paid version as it says you can get all the popular ROMs downloaded to your phone. Was wondering how good this app is and if anyone has had problems with getting the ROMs.
So I just rooted my HTC desire but I didn't install a new ROM. Why you may ask because all I wanted to do is install most apps to my SD card because my SD card getting full. I didn't install a ROM because I found out that froyo was not offering this and I had not updated to it but when I try to update I get a quarter of the way thought installing when the bar disappears and a yellow triangle appears behind the android.
I suspect this is because of root. I would very much like to keep with OTA updates if possible. So what would you recommend I do? Proceed with unrooting or update with a RUU or something else? (FYI I called Talus (my carrier) and they said if the OTA update dose not work after I do a factory reset (already tried) then I could send it in for repair, so I would assume that would reset all the software on my phone thus not being rooted. Would this be an option as my phone is under warranty or would stock ROM but rooted still void it?
I recently updated OTA to Froyo on my Desire( sorta forgot to backup all my apps due to sheer excitement that i got froyo , im pretty noob to android and smart phones ).I am very interested in rooting my phone but only reason i didnt look into it much further in Eclair was the reason that it voided warranty so just incase something happened i didnt root it.But now im leaving the country and it dont matter and i got froyo i want to root my phone.There are many tutorials on how to root but being a noob im not really 100% on the process.So here are my questions:
Can i root my 2.2 htc desire? How do i root it? What methods are the easy and safest way? What ROMs should i use?
And if you guys can point out anything else i need that would be awesome.
Every few days(sometimes once a day) I get a 'new' android 4.3 update, which once it reboots into the teamwin bootloader, and finishes installing the update(which always seems to work for first 2 steps but says no contents in file, then 2 errors after) I lose root access and it asks if I want to reapply (which I do) and it loads as normal on a restart. I am with build number JWR66N now, but the info page on the TWRP window shows it updates JWR66N to (And I forgot the number here, but its different)
So I'd like to know, is it normal to have 'constant' android updates like this, and if not, what build number should I have?
I have had this issue since about a week after I got my nexus, its been rooted ever since, but in an attempt to fix this issue(Which is just annoying, I doubt its causing any real damage) I unrooted the nexus, updated it(Manually) and re-rooted it using the wugfresh rootkit.
I have just done the 'one click root' to my desire (here), and after installing leeDroid's Froyo rom (2.0c) I have lost root access to my phone. This means I cant do a Titanium Backup restore to get all my stuff back. Anyone know of a quick fix? or do I have to roll back and start again?
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?
It seems like every couple of months I lose my address book, subsequently I cant answer messages unless I can recognise the number and I end up having to wipe the fone and start again - which means downloading all the Apps again - its done it once again today, any ideas of a way round - I would prefer not to wipe as I lose my msg inbox etc
Love love love my Desire. Few little problems here and there (Music Genre, Battery life etc) but the one main thing that is really bugging me is, that if I lose reception (I live in a area with lots of valleys), it will never regain reception even if I enter a town centre or City. I always have to either switch Airplane mode on then off. Or more often than not, turn the phone off completely and switch it back on, where it then finds reception straight away.
I turned on my phone this morning and it said 5 updates were available, where 1 had to be installed manually. So I select to update the other 4 apps... one of the apps downloaded ok, two are reporting that the download was unsuccessful, and the 4th one (Fruit Ninja) hung on 'Installing...'. So I put the phone down, picked it up an hour later, and it still says 'Installing...'. Thing is, this is not the first time this has happened, as I routinely have apps hang while updating, either while downloading or installing since upgrading to Froyo. Anyone else have this issue? I am running a custom ROM (Virtuous), but dunno if that has anything to do with it or not.
After hearing about the crap Motorola pulled with the bootloader, I decided to wait on the ota update to Froyo until someone either figures a workaround, or they don't...to which I will update via the latest leak.
PROBLEM: After twice saying NOT to download this ota, I look down at my status bar and it shows something downloading at 10%...It's the syatem update!!!! I immediately pulled the battery, only to have the download continue upon restarting the phone. I am currently in Airplane mode waiting to hear if there is a way to KILL, CANCEL or STOP this download from installing!
I just rooted my phone using the unrevoked 3 tool. Now when I try to install apps from the market, I can't seem to get anything to download.The download menu starts, but then never makes any progress. Anybody seen this or know how to fix it?
This is the RUU, and it will wipe your phone, Clean. (It won't wipe your SD card) , but it's up to you. It's the exact same as the official that Verizon is rolling out, except a Preferred Roaming List, which just determines what towers you can connect to. This will not root your phone.
I am currently rooted and held off my OTA update because I haven't done the Unrevoked Forever and S-Off yet. I'm always a fan of competely wiping devices then installing the OS fresh so I'm considering just ditching all that and doing the RUU. Can I acheive root if I do this?
