HTC Desire :: Got Rosie (sense) Helicopter Drag And Drop Working On Desire Stock Froyo
Nov 2, 2010
I have used Lambrospowers (XDA Forum) Rosie patch to enable drag n drop when in helicopter (leap) view. It works flawlessly on my rooted stock Froyo Desire. If anyone is interested, I will provide more info on how to install the patch and where to d/l it from.My desire is rooted but S-ON and odexed. It only works on rooted phones.I love this feature that only comes on DHD & DZ as part of the new sense 2.0 ui as standard.
Drag and Drop File Sync with Awesome Drop.Its an Android application that lets you drag and drop files right into your browser which then copies files to your Android device. No account is required just open the app, navigate to the specified webpage, enter the access code into your device, drop in your files and voila, the files are synched to your phone.Awesome Drop uses HTML5 features of web browsers like FireFox 3.6, Chrome 5 & Safari 5 to copy files to your device and supports music, photos and document files.
I installed 2.2 the ligit way, searched for updates and asked if I wanted to download 2.2 so I did. Now HTC Sense will not even start when I switch on the phone. The phone starts and then says "loading..." and while it's loading it shows that lovely application error, normally you just click "force close" but application that's breaking is actually HTC Sense and the "force close" button is grayed out, then the phone restarts with the white screen and green HTC logo and then gets to the "loading..." part and then HTC Sense breaks again and the phone is stuck in an infinite loop.
Yesterday, I finally decided to root my phone and flash an android 2.2 'with Sense' ROM. I followed this guide: How To: Install Froyo On An HTC Desire | I Can Has Pi?
I used the 2.2 Sense ROM recommended by the guide. Everything was going really well, but once the proses was over I saw some things that instantly made me wish I had never bothered rooting:
-I have a VERY low internal memory; no room for half my backed-up apps, no room for SMS, no room to take a low resolution photo(let alone 720p video!), and not even room to browse my photos or music(I know-weird...)!
-Some apps (like the HTC MOD keyboard with voice input) simply don't work.
-Slow boot and load HTC Sense.
-Programs force-close very often, as dose HTC Sense.
There are some good things in this ROM (like a slight increase in performance) but really, the bad outweighs the good- especially with the low storage, considering that the main reason I rooted was to get more space for apps!
I don't know what to do now. Is there a solution within the ROM I'm using at the moment? Or did I just use a crappy ROM. Which can you recommend (Froyo w/Sense)? Unrooting seems quite easy, or is that dumb now that I've gone through the trouble of rooting? I can't be without receiving SMS for much longer!
As it says above really. I've rooted to the new Froyo with sense release (seems slow but stable) and all was well until I restored with mybackup pro. Some apps were missing even though they showed as installed and even so, I've got A LOT less internal memory than before and I'm still having to uninstall stuff
I thought Froyo was supposed to let you install apps to SD?
Just did the OTA froyo update from O2 last night. All appeared to go well and successful, past the point where I heard other people's got stuck.But when I slide down the slider and put in my password, it gets stuck in a force close loop for com.htc.launcher. Seems to not be able to open sense and keeps looping round.I saw a post from someone saying they had that problem, but then they just hit the search button and got the quicksearch, went to settings, then cleared the data for the appropriate application and then it worked fine.But when I hit the search button, nothing happens. If I hold it down, I get the google voice search, but I can't seem to get to settings from there.Does anyone know another method to get into settings as I'm hopeful this will fix my problem as suggested by some others. I'd much rather that than take it back to O2.
I've uploaded a pre-rooted version of HTC's latest ROM. This is basically stock with root, except I've disabled the annoying boot sound.It includes radio 5.09.05.30_2.To install you must be rooted with custom recovery. A full wipe shouldn't be necessary if you're currently on an official rom, since this isn't modified from stock. Do a nandroid backup before you install.There's no changelog from 2.09.405.8, but I've noticed my GPS problems went away.
I have a unbranded HTC Desire. I'm still on 2.1 which I rooted 3 months ago. I'm wondering on updating to froyo and keep root. I'm not interested in any custom rom's, I like stock one. The only thing I rooted at first is to install my app's on SD instead of internal memory. My device specs are: Os: 2.1-update1 Baseband: 32.30.00.28U_4.05.00.11 Sw: 1.15.405.4 HBOOT: 0.75.0000
I am looking for a stock google rom (With No Super User) for my htc desire phone. Anyone know where I can find one? All the roms I am finding are modded. I'm just looking for something that can be updated OTA by Google.
I just updated to froyo and there are 2 issues. Video camera freezes after recording a clip, and the GPS wont work. It would normally detect my location in less than 15 seconds, but now takes forever. The only way to locate is using wifi or mobile network. it: Unmounted SD card, restarted device, took battery out for 30 secs and put it back. Everything works as it should now.
Orange haven't had any since 26th August and won't have any until the 8th!?! What the hell is that all about lol my mate is going mad. He's called 'em up to upgrade, got a mint deal but now has to wait to receive a text to tell him that they are in stock (Like that is ever going to arrive He's been told that they receive them on an add hoc basis, sometimes 10, sometimes 700. Sounds a bit slack if you ask me. Does anyone think that there is a connection between a delayed Froyo release and low stock? Don't forget that they were blaming stock shortages on the success of the Galaxy S because it slowed down the production of the HTC as Samsung apparently manufacture the screens for both. wish I could treat my customers like this
Just wondering which kernel - in terms of performance and battery life would be the best to use with teppics rooted stock froyo rom.
I'm currently using this kernel with the sd card read fix and gpu+ fix but I'm wondering if theres something thats better in terms of performance and battery life.
Desire Kernel for Teppic74's ROM - xda-developers
I've heard many good things about richards v5 kernel but I don't want to OC or do anything crazy. I just need the sd card read fix... maybe the gpu+ fix and no OCing as I do want to keep my battery life as is.
I have froyo running but I have had to change keyboard back to stock. I had the keyboard with the mike key on 2.1 but this kb does not seem to function on froyo. How do I now speak texts and emails a function I loved before.
I have seen posts on using handbreak to convert to the correct file size and such but i was trying to just drag and drop avi files to the evo but they dont seem to be showing up once i disconnect from the pc. Is there a way to just drag and drop movies onto the evo or do i have to convert each one i want to put on the phone?
I am converting a avi right now through handbreak but it is taking forever! With my moment i could drag and drop i figured with this phone i could do the same but i guess not
Before i have to take the train to work i like to just throw a movie on the phone and watch it but it doesnt seem like ill be able to do this with the evo cause ill have to convert them all and that will take too long....
after updating (the official update) my HTC Desire to Froyo 2.2 I cannot capture any Video (any resolution). It happens that I press the trackball and the timer (on the upper-right corner) disappears and nothing works anymore (menu, etc...), only the Home button allow me to go back to the home panel. After doing that, the battery die in a few minutes and the phone is very slow: i.e. some video camera service is still up and running and consuming battery.
Is it possible to drag and drop table rows in android? Say the user holds down on a table row, the row would would become transparent and be draggable around the screen & then depending where the user dropped it, the table row would be inserted there.
I noticed that AbsoluteLayout is deprecated in the latest SDK. AbsoluteLayout is an important piece to implementing drag and drop. If it disappears in a later release, what will be the solution to implement drag and drop?
I want to write an app for my thesis that it will have some items/icons and i will drag'n'drop them in a box and then it will make a query in a database and return the result..but i can't find information on how to combine the drag'n'drop with the box...
I'm a new Captivate owner and I was wondering if there is a simple way to sync music files from your itunes to your Captivate? I was looking for something that I can drag and drop the files from itunes to my phone? I'm just looking for a real easy way to add music to my phone.
I want to know how to manual sort with ListView by using drag and drop? for example, the user can drag an item from position 2 to position 1. Someone said there is a play list activity that can support it in music application. But I cannot find it in my SDK 1.0. Who can provide some suggestion? If there is a demo, it is more better.
For those of you who have been frustrated by the inability to rearrange the icons in your app dock, worry no more. With the latest ADW upgrade you can drag and drop apps on your dock bar in any order you like.
I connect the usb to charge, but I cant drag and drop files like I did with my Instinct through Windows. Currently, I have to take the mini sd card out of the phone and put that into my computer to connect that way to add music, etc. Anyone know anything about how to drag and drop directly when connected with the usb?
