HTC Desire : No - Wrong Image - Messages Displayed - When Bootloader
Nov 3, 2010
Currently running DeFroST 6.0 forHTC desire (AOSP FRG83 + CyanogenMod). I rooted using unrevoked 3. I installed defrost 5.9via Rom manager then upgraded to 6.0 via defrost settings.
3 questions possibly unrelated
when I run bootloader I see 'no image' and 'wrong image' messages displayed
I am unable to delete stock apps that came with the defrost Rom. In root explorer I mount r /w and delete an app. Confirm delete message shows up. But when I exit app is still there in the drawer functioning normally.
I was told this could be because NAND is locked. I understand that it should be unlocked when the unrevoked root was performed. I suspect that the error message - not enough space I saw in recovery might have something to do with the NAND setting.
Before I installed defrost 5.9 I tried to install the cyanogen 6 Rom via Rom manager. I saw 'not enough space. On device' or something similar (can't remember exactly) displayed in recovery. i think this might have something to do wit NAND setting as well
btw my desire is CDMA. Can any body shed some light on this. im a newb so simple terms please
I have a problem with the displayed times shown on the home screen. The one displayed in the widget with the weather is displaying the correct time but the one in the top right corner is showing as being 1 hour behind. I have tried using manual and auto settings for the time but all this does is change the time in the widget.
Probably something really simple but cannot figure out how to get them displaying the same.
Is there a way of setting a different lockscreen image to the one displayed on the homescreens?
Home screen images, by their very nature work best when they are simple or abstract because they have a load of stuff going on over the top of them. But in the lock screen it would be really great to see a proper picture, where it doesn't matter what's going on because there's nothing in front of it!
It's a small request, but it would be nice to have all the same! Any apps that can do it?
I received a couple of text messages from Vodafone today, and the Messages app showed the sender as one of my personal contacts! It happened to be the last contact that I edited in the People app, and seems like a bug. Has anyone else seen this? this is on an unlocked Desire bought from mobiles.co.uk.
My dev phone has a stock bootloader. while upgrading to the official signed-dream_devphone-img-147201.zip image I suddenly received the message a ota update arrived and i accepted it. How wrong i was! Now i have a phone with the bootloader with hboot-0.95.0000 in stead of the 0.95.3000. Strange thing is it still has the test keys. Is there any way to correct this? I see guides for rooting your standard G1 everywhere but i expect that i can't install these images due to the test keys on my device.
I just picked up a refurbished AT&T Galaxy S3 (i747) and it appears to have the T-Mobile (T999) bootloader for some reason.Putting a T-Mobile sim in registers on the network and for some reason I get H+, which I didn't think was possible with the I747 AT&T model. Don't have an AT&T sim to test with at the moment.I've tried flashing the I747 4.1.2 bootloader but I get different error messages depending on which recovery I use to flash it.
My primary concern right now is how can I fix this boot loader issue so I can get a more recent rom like AOKP 4.4 on it?
I have got another mysterious issue. So, I am setting a background image for LinearLayout. This image contains gradient. Don't know why, but after I launch application the image appears to consist of several parts that actually form "smooth transition" of gradient, and that's why it seems that background image is not a gradient.
I recently created a new contact in my phone, entered their name, and messaged them with the default messenger. I then realized I entered the wrong phone number so I deleted the contact then created a new one using the same name but the correct phone number and texted them. Now, when they text me, it shows up in its own thread as if it came from the incorrect number I originally entered but when I reply I have to do so in a different thread that displays the correct number. In effect, this contact now has one thread for their incoming messages and one thread for their outgoing messages.
I've tried pulling my battery and SIM but that did nothing. I've tried deleting either or both of the threads and nothing. I've tried deleting them and pulling the battery and SIM afterward and nothing. I've found solutions for merging existing threads but that doesn't work at all for any new messages that are sent or received. It's a bit tedious having to go back and forth between threads just to talk to one person.
I want to display an image from an url with an Webview at Android. With Android phones with Version 1.5 and 1.6 there is no problem. but the same pic and the same code on an AndroidPhone with Version 2.0 and the pic is totaly pixelated. Like Android is resizing the image first to a smaller one and then resizing it back to "normal" size. Unfortunately its important to display the pic without any quality loss. I tried to integrate it in the sourcefolder to show it as an normal image, but at Android 2.0 i get an exception because the image is to big. (At Android 1.6 there is no problem) Any ideas how i can display the image without quality loss with Android 2.0 ?
I have an Android application that allows the user to select a photo that has already been taken. Once the user selects a photo, I grab the URI information for that photo, use that information to create a bitmap, and then I set the bitmap in an ImageView. This all works perfectly fine.I then give the user the option to select the picture for viewing. When the user chooses to view the picture, I launch an ACTION_VIEW intent, passing the URI data. Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, pictureUri);startActivity(intent);As you can see, this is very simple code, nothing special going on. The problem is that, when I run this code on my Droid running Android 2.1, about 6 or 7 times out of 10, the application will display the correct picture. But the other 3 or 4 times, I get shown the wrong picture. Also, each time the wrong picture is shown, its always the same incorrect picture being shown. The fact that I see the right picture the majority of the time leads me to believe everything I'm doing in code is fine, so can anyone tell me if you have seen this problem before, and better yet, is there a solution? Here is the exact sequence that I observe on my Droid when I run this (Note: Image URI is already saved before I start the Activity):
- I choose "View Photo" in the Activity - When things work, I get taken to the gallery and shown image 74 - Each time things do not work, I get shown image 82
Keep in mind that when I start the Activity with the URI already saved (retrieved from database), I set an ImageView based on the URI data in onCreate(), and the Image being shown in the ImageView is ALWAYS the correct image. It's not until I actually decide to view the image using ACTION_VIEW that I see odd behavior. And I know it's not something specific about these 2 photos. I observed this behavior using other photos in the past, and got the same behavior.
I see these components discussed all the time on xda-developers. I have a vague understanding of what they are and how they're related to each other, but it's not perfectly clear. For example, the radio seems to be a lot more than just the radio. I have a good understanding of the basic ideas as a Linux user and software developer.To kick things off, let me present my current understanding. I could be way off on some things:"Radio" - I'm not sure if this runs before the bootloader or after HBOOT is the bootloader, the first thing that runs when you boot up your phone. Like your regular Linux bootloader, it lets you boot off of different partitions.There are multiple partitions on the system, at least one for HBOOT (maybe? or is it in some kind of MBR type of area?), recovery, system and data. All of these partitions are in the system's "ROM" which is not really ROM it's actually NVRAM or flash or whatever. Hence, each of these areas can be independently flashed.Recovery is a partition you can boot into. It's originally meant to be a kind of "recovery" mode and so offers a base for hacking. This is typically re-flashed so as to follow further modifications. From the recovery image, you can also access the sdcard which is useful for fetching update.zip files etc. update.zip - these are updates that can be applied from a custom recovery image. It seems like these updates can contain more or less arbitrary code, but I'm not clear on how they get applied or where they get flashed to or applied to./system - gets mounted read-only (what control this?) unless you do some hacking Where does the kernel sit? Is there a different one in the recovery versus the regular image? which parts form a custom ROM like CyanogenMod? What is the NAND and what does it mean to unlock the NAND? What is an RUU? SPL? Where do the WiFi and 3G radio images sit? PC36IMG.zip? PRI?I've seen some of this explained elsewhere but I don't understand how they all fit together.
The problem is when scrolling; sometimes the correct image shows, but sometimes when scrolling back/forward, the images shows randomly and that is not associated with the row. The images are downloaded from the web.
First time poster and long time reader. First off I got the Captivate today and love it. I had the Aria and took it back and got this today. I just have a couple of questions. I will list them so it doesn't get confusing.
1. I saw in a few reviews that the battery has standby time of over a month and is generally very good and is a big part of why I bought the phone. That being said, since a full charge at 2:00pm, I am currently (9:00pm) in the yellow on my battery with normal use (ie minimal web browsing, 4 phone calls all under 2 minutes, about 10 total texts and 3 downloaded apps, and just browsing the phones features all while having a task manager). Should I just charge it after a few days and see where I am at?
2. My house usually gives me a pretty good signal but for some reason, I only have 1-2 bars in most of the areas. However, I seem to still be able to do things such as make phone calls with no bars. As for the "death grip", I also have held the phone with a case on it and the signal diminished very quickly which concerns me. A steady 2-3 bars I would be fine with, but 1 bar is unacceptable.
3. Timestamps on text messages are wrong just like they were on the Aria. It is a minor thing but it bugs the hell out of me.
Overall the phone is awesome but I buy a phone for two reasons, number one it has to be a good phone (call quality and reception) and number two it must have an above average battery (7 hours with minimal usage concerns me). I hope I am just overreacting but these are issues I think should be talked about.
Prior to switching ROMs back and forth, I was able to nandroid off of my phone with no issue. Now, I cannot and at first I found it slightly alarming, but then I brushed it off. However, I feel like something might be wrong with my phone? Help?
Also, recently (as in today). My phone has been sending messages to other people, randomly. I got a phone call from my mother but it popped up as a totally different number.
1. Does the phone support Chinese input? in other words, if the phone could send or receive Chinese messages? 2. If something wrong with the phone during updating, and can't start, is there any ways to recovery it?
On the HTC full screen agenda widget only the date is displayed and not the day.Is there any way to make it show the day?I find it a little annoying as you have to work out what day the date refers to, e.g. 2/5/2010? Using my fingers to count - it's the errr 26 April today, so,you get my drift.Hopefully there'll be some decent calendar apps come along soon.
I just updated 2.2 OTA and now was searching to root it, but all guides discussed here are for Bootloader 0.80 (which was when I had 2.1) , can anyone point me in the direction to Root 2.2 with Bootloader 0.93?
Has anybody unrooted their desire with a 0.80 bootloader? and if so what ruu did you use? i have tried many diffrent ones i continue to get error 131 (wrong ruu) or error 140 (wrong bootloader version) my phone is on vodafone.
"If you have a bootloader version 0.75.xxxx or below AND a current ROM of 1.15.xxx.x or below download XXXX
if you have a bootloader version 0.80.xxxx or below AND a current ROM of 1.21.xxx.x or below download ZZZZ"
Maybe I'm missing something, but surely if the first statement is true then the 2nd statement must also be true, and so the first download link could be removed all together? Could a user rooting from 0.75 - 1.15 use the 2nd download link?
I've already rooted, but this has annoyed me since I saw it and just wondered if the 2nd download wording is correct or if it should be reworded somewhat.
