HTC Desire :: New Files Not Spotted Until Phone Restarts / Is This Normal?
Sep 5, 2010
I have connected my 2.1 desire up to my xp machine and mounted the drive fine.
i created a folder "ringtones" within the "media" folder and placed mp3 files within it.
the only problem being, it only notices the files when the phone has been rebooted. Is this normal?
My Desire has restarted itself a number of times automatically. Twice it restarted when I powered it up. It powered up and then restarted. Three times, it restarted while I was using the Navigation app. I wasn't actually using the turn by turn navigation. I started it and just started up the map. It worked for about a minute and then the phone restarted. The restart while the Navigation app was running happened twice today.
Has anyone had similar experiences? Do you recall what you were doing when it restarted?
My phone constantly restarts after trying out the video recording. I've tried removing the battery and rebooting it again but it still keeps on restarting. Can someone advise me? Btw..my phone is not rooted.
I have a branded Desire, with Telstra software. These last few months have seen my desire constantly rebooting itself. This occurs 2-3 times a day without fail. It not only restarts itself, but takes a good 10-15 minutes to fully boot - constantly 're-rebooting'. I have removed ALL after-market applications, removed all data from the memory card, so it's back to how it was straight out the box (with the exception of user data - contacts, messages etc.). I don't feel comfortable with debranding / rooting the phone. Does anyone have any ideas as to what may be causing the restarts, and a possible way around it? There is no definitive process or application involved in the restarts, it is entirely random.
however I am not new to Android or cell phones. I am a former Sprint rep and technician and was my store's advocate for the Hero so I have quite a bit of knowledge as it stands. However the past 2 or 3 days my Evo has randomly restarted without any notice or any reason. I was sitting in my room watching TV last night when my phone restarted 3 separate times within a 35 minute span. Nothing was running, it wasn't charging, I haven't rooted yet, 4g bluetooth and wifi were all off.
Just dialed my network operator to listen to how much credit i had on my phone, but when i tapped on 'end call' the phone did not end the call, eventually i had to switch the phone off. It happened a second time too but seems to be okay now.
Is it something i should be concerned about, or is it quite normal, or maybe it's happened to one of you as well.
Lately for the past few days my Evo has been starting on it own. In my pocket, while I'm driving on the car charger, on a table, anywhere. I would just be sitting there then I hear the restart sound from their sprint and 4g title theme.
I've never had a smart phone like this, so hopefully this isn't too dumb of a question. But is it necessary to shut down the phone and restart it once in a while. Once a week, once every couple days, never? I feel like this thing is a mini netbook so just getting an opinion on how to properly take care of if.
So I'm running fresh evo .5.3 (Or whatever that build was, old, I know), and near the middle of the day I realized my phone was playing my notification sound (and led would blink once) and then my phone would suddenly reboot. The only changes I had made were installing a couple random apps, which I've uninstalled since then. Also, installed handcent and I get the same result. Other notifications work fun, but any text ones freeze and instantly reboot my phone. I'll probably end up doing a full (everything I need is in the cloud, don't mind reinstalling apps) wipe and flash of fresh 3.2.
Since Saturday night, my EVO has randomly shut off and immediately restarted on several occasions. It happened once while charging overnight, once while on an audio call and the others while the phone was not charging and not being used. Do I require a software or firmware update?
is there any way of managing/deleting files (eg PDFs that you download) on the SD card from the phone itself ? ie can you do it without connecting to a PC and mounting as disk drive ?Also - just bought a 16gb SD card and it seems like the speed of access/saving photos and transferring music from PC is much slower than with the 4GB card that came with the phone. Is that normal or have i got a dud/fake SD Card ? ( i know - I bought if from ebay - but it was a proper 30,000+ feedback seller of memory cards..)
I've been using my Desire for three days now, and been quite happy with it. Except for the fact that I can barely get three hours of battery life out of it, with "normal" use. (A couple of text messages/MSN conversations, quick web browsing every now and then). I've tried everything, turning syncs to 6 hours intervals, switching off 3G and WiFi, reducing screen brightness etc.
But the battery still loses about 1% per 1 minute. This can't be normal, right? Is this something that will improve over time? Could I have a faulty battery that needs replacing? I don't have unrealistic expectations for the battery life, just lasting for a full working day is enough for me, and I assume that should be possible.
My T-Mobile Desire received the 2.2 update a couple of weeks ago and on Saturday I thought I'd try some 720p recording.Unfortunately the result is really disappointing; stuttering/jerky recording, poor image quality, poor sound quality etc.Can you take a quick look and tell me if I've done something wrong (wrong setting perhaps?) or if this is as good as it gets on the Desire?
I've noticed that lately my Legend restarts by it self in some specific situations, more often when I enter a place with no phone network. I'm going to give an example: I enter the elevator, which has no phone network. The legend shows the network icon with the cross. I exit the elevator 5 minutes have passed and Legend still wasn't able to recapture the network signal. I have to select manually a network to connect to. After this any operation I try to do like send an SMS or try to make a call, the phone just restarts.
This is the most common, but there are other situations where the phone restarts and all of them involve me using it. I'm absolutely sure that the phone does not restarts in standby mode. Maybe a hard reset would fix this, but I would like to now if anybody has this issue, and if there's other option than factory reset. I have all updates installed, some apps installed about 49.
Has anyone else had their milestone randomly reboot? This seems to have happened since 2.0.1 was installed. It has happened 3 times today and twice yesterday, prior to 2.0.1 there was no unexpected restarts.
So, I upgraded to 2.1 a few months ago. Everything seemed fine. Data works, can connect to my comp (Win 7) to transfer files no prob, bluetooth/WiFi/GPS all worked well. But about 3 or 4 weeks ago my data turns on and off at random, texts don't go through, and whenever I plug my phone into my computer, when I unplug it, it restarts.
If I put it into debug mode and connect it to usb, when I unplug it it restarts. It restarts to the Samsung lading screen over and over and over and over again until I unplug the USB. I am not computer/android guru or anything, but I do know my way around them decently. And nothing I can figure out works. i went into the Sprint store and the guy told me to do a factory reset. I did. Didn't do anything, same problems.
I recently bought an unlocked T-Mobile CLIQ and I'm using it in Canada (FIDO). I have 2 SIM cards that I've been testing with the CLIQ. On one phone SIM, the phone works perfectly fine no complaints (in fact, its quite a good phone). However, on my 2nd SIM card, the phone has problems picking up a signal, so it spends most of its time on Emergency Call Only and then to add insult to injury, the phone will automatically restart after several minutes. I have a hard time believing that a SIM card can cause this phone to mess up but I can't explain how it works for one SIM, but not for another?
After months without a random reboot, my phone did it twice consecutively today while I was trying to navigate while streaming music (Pandora) on the way from the airport this morning. It worked perfectly on the 1 hour drive there (also on the round trip going there the previous week), but while I was waiting for the guys I was picking up at the arrival gate, I was browsing the web and still streaming music and my phone just did a "soft" restart (where it doesn't show the Moto logo, just the boot animation). Slightly annoying. At least it gets to the launcher pretty quick still. Then, maybe 30 minutes later on the trip back, it does it again while I'm driving back. This time when it got back to the home screen, it refused to pick up any sort of cell signal like it was in airplane mode, but all the other radios were on (BT and satellite). Toggling airplane mode had no affect on it. So I had to totally reboot my phone to get it to work again. I think it may be heat related, when it came back up the first time, SetCPU read the CPU at 51�C/124�F and that was immediately after reboot, so it may have cooled down some during that. After the second reboot I brought the clock down to 800 MHz from 1.1 GHz and it was good for the rest of the trip. But I was running the exact same load/apps on it the last trip and the ambient temp in the car was the same. So I wanted to see if there some system log/app that can tell me what process forced the phone to reboot or maybe what the CPU temp was when it crashed, to rule out software. Is there anything like this? If not, does anyone know what the max temp the CPU can handle before it forces a reboot? I'm sure there's a threshold for this, just like there is for PCs (but usually they just throttle instead of shutting down), but I don't know what it is. I would think ~60�C would be way too damn hot for a CPU in a hand held device.
I've got a problem that I absolutely cannot figure out how to fix. My droid keeps restarting whenever I try to load any application, even ones from the factory. Anyone know what's going on or a way to fix it?
EVO phone completely restarts after I activate the GPS toggle and launch Google Maps.I allow some time between the two activities so it's not like I'm rushing it.Anyone else dealing with this?What to do
I'm having a weird issue where after I successfully rooted my Samsung Galaxy S3 (following a guide from androidcentral) every time my phone encounters an application force close, the phone will freeze up and eventually restart. Before rooting my phone, whenever an application would force close all I would get was a notification telling me <application name> had closed unexpectedly, as it should in Android. Now I'm not seeing that, phone just goes to black and then restarts. This wouldn't be a huge deal, but since I'm using it as a development platform, having your phone restart every time your application crashes takes a lot of time.
What's really weird is that Logcat will continue to scroll (in Eclipse) even after the phone is frozen to input (so its not a system wide lock up).
I downloaded Ditto Note 3 for my note 2, and i flashed it. It didn't work so whatever. After reading on the thread a little longer, it said i needed to flash a kernel. So after flashing ditto note 3 and the kernel i rebooted my phone to see that it was stuck on the Note 2 logo. I thought it was all fine until i booted into recovery mode to find that cwm would make my phone restart. I have backups of cm11 and stock touchwiz, can i flash them with odin? Can I go into my storage and take them out?
