HTC Desire :: Phone Won't Book After A Flashed Zip - Nandroid Option Not Available

Aug 22, 2010

My Issue: HTC Desire is stuck on boot-up screen with Green HTC logo forever.

How it happened: I tried flashing a script using ROM Manager that was supposed to correct some local language settings, over my current rom.

Phone state before action: Worked beautifully using Modaco R8 RC1 ROM. Phone is of course rooted.

Why I can't solve it myself: Well, this is my first serious issue (well, I hope it's not serious, actually!) with phone, which i've had for about a week , so I'm relatively a n00b.

-- I can access Clockworkmod recovery. However, under NANDROID RESTORE there are no files. I have no idea why, because I DID a full nandroid backup before that last install. I have a copy of all the IMG files of the last working setup on my windows machine hard drive, and my assumption now is that maybe I accidentally moved the files to the hard drive after i did that backup, instead of copying them.

Now -

1) Can I somehow restore the phone to a working state without the nandroid backup, using some other function of the CW Mod recovery?

2) Can I somehow connect the phone via USB to the computer and get it to read the Micro SD card so I could maybe move the IMG files I have back to SD Card (using some mounting options)?

3) Anything else I could try?

If nothing else, please just calm me down if you can and let me know the phone is fixable and not bricked because I can access recovery?! That would at least help me go through the night...

last note: Before I flashed the zip, ROM Manager indicated my CW Mod version is 2.0.5.7. Within the recovery itself, it says the version is only 2.0.5.1. Don't know why that is , and if it is important.

HTC Desire :: Add More Detail To Phone Book Entries?

May 20, 2010

Can anyone tell me if it's possible to add more detail to your phone book entries if your inputting them manually? My facebook account is for networking and promotion, so a lot of people I have in my friends list I don't even know. Because of this I have had to remove my account from "facebook for htc sense". Unfortunately I liked the way it had lots of info for each individual contact, photo, birthday, email addy etc. Is their anyway of having this much info for each individual entry when adding them in "people"?

HTC Desire :: Adding Photos To Phone Book Contacts?

Jul 10, 2010

I can't find out how to add photos to the contacts I have on my phone.I read in another post that I should go to Google mail and do it from there, but my contacts aren't synced with anything. I just want to access them on my phone, and see a photo when they call. I added everyone's details myself, but I can't believe there's no Add photo option (or non that I can find anyway!)

HTC Desire :: Facebook For Sense And The Phone Book And Linking?

Jun 5, 2010

Facebook for HTC Sense and the Phone Book

Has anybody found a way to remove Facebook contacts that HTC Sense Facebook adds to the overall phone book once you sign into this app? (The list that appears when you press Phone and not the People app.)

It's quite annoying having to trawl through lots of unnecessary non-Google Contacts entries to find the legitimate ones I want in my phone book.

My All People list has never had the Facebook View ticked and correctly displays just my Google Contacts, which is the only View ticked, but when you click on Phone the phone list displays all my Google Contacts and all my Facebook friends who display a phone number. I haven't found any way to remove these Facebook contacts from the Phone list, not even unchecking the Contacts Sync option for HTC Facebook works. The Phone list needs the same View option that the People app has got.

Linking

How does HTC Sense Facebook make associations with Google Contacts?

I've got three contacts where the phone has auto linked Facebook to Google, one doesn't have any details that match, Facebook name is different and they don't share their e-mail address on Facebook, and now has code in the notes section of their Google Contact entry to make the link, the other two names match their Facebook names exactly and don't have any code in their Google Contacts note section.

And how do I get rid of it?

Anyway, I want to get rid of them so I just see my phone contacts (phone numbers only).

HTC Desire :: Rooted And Flashed Froyo W-Sense

Jul 25, 2010

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!

HTC Desire :: Rooted And Flashed Modaco's 2.2 ROM With Sense

Jul 21, 2010

I got sick of waiting for HTC to get 2.2 out for the Desire and I have no intention of waiting for the weeks of rumours and "delays" on those rumours.

I've rooted my Desire and installed Modaco's Android 2.2+Sense UI ROM and frankly I'm glad I did. It's stable, has all the features of 2.2 and is a LOT more responsive than the 2.1 stock ROM.

This was super easy thanks to Unrevoked. The principles should in fact work on any new HTC device. I can highly recommend it and you can check out the details of how I did it here:

General :: HTC Desire Z Flashed To CM10.1 - Notification And Status Bar Disappeared

Jul 24, 2013

Got my HTC Desire Z flashed to CM10.1 and have some tweaked but after I take two optimized commands into the file

/system/etc/init.d/00banner

Commands are about to boost up the reading speed of SDcard, type like

/system/xbin/echo "4096" > /sys/devices/virtual/bdi/179:0/read_ahead_kb;
/system/xbin/echo "4096" > /sys/devices/virtual/bdi/default/read_ahead_kb;

Actually I modified these files with RecoveryFileManager at first but I found that was failed after I reboot the device, so I just type these commands into the init.d, but after that, I just find my status bar and notification bar was lost and disappeared, not only home screen but also all around the surface in the system.

HTC Incredible :: Flashed Phone To Cricket?

Sep 11, 2010

I just got my hands on the ever so lovely HTC incredible and flashed it to cricket. However I'm having a few issues with getting my gps, mms, apps and getting my data connection to stop going on and off. I followed the walkthroughs for both the HTC Eris/hero and the Motorola Droid, course respecting the aspects of Motorola that won't work on an HTC. I've gotten the web running with the issue of it periodically goin in and out. As for mms, gps and apps....sadly they're a no go. If anyone has any ideas or can help it would be greatly appreciated.

Motorola Droid :: Flashed 2.0.1 SBF / Phone Won't Update To 2.1

May 9, 2010

I mentioned this in another thread, but I thought I'd start a new thread for this problem. I have a Droid I need to send back to Verizon, so I want to get it back to stock. It had been running CyanogenMod, so I wanted to flash the 2.0.1 SBF. For some unknown reason, I flashed it with SPRecovery again. I waited for that to finish and then flashed the 2.0.1 SBF like I originally had meant to.It seems to be running 2.0.1 just fine, but it will not download the 2.1 update. I get a notification that says 2.1 is available. I hit the Download button and it acts as if it is starting the download, but then it goes back to the screen that says 2.1 is available. It never downloads the update.I really want to get this to a stock 2.1 before I send it back.Any thoughts?
