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 was thinking about the fact that Verizon changed the phone I purchased by adding apps with the froyo update. Can you deny the update to froyo? Not that I know of without getting the popup every half an hour. I purchased this phone outright when it came out and want to get a droid 2 and was thinking about ways the exchange this phone. I guess what I am trying to say is; can I go to Verizon and say that they either need to change my phone back to the purchased item or take a return and give me a refund?I am ASSUMING this and wanted to know if anyone knows of any laws about this?
I have a Live Wallpaper app that is working very well on Eclair but there is a strange issue with Froyo that I can't find any information about. The user is able to select a custom picture as a background from their gallery and it will be saved to internal storage (/ Snowflakes/CustomBG.jpg) and applied as a background to the live wallpaper. That all works fine until the user reboots their phone... The problem is that the internal storage doesn't seem to be mounted in time for when the live wallpaper starts and so it reverts to the default setting when null is returned (see code below). As I say, this problem has only been introduced with Froyo as Eclair works fine (the image is found and used so the internal storage must be mounted before the Live Wallpaper starts).
Here's the code that searches for the CustomBG.jpg image on startup...
Apologies for the code formatting - is there any way I can improve this? Anyway, I'd be very grateful for any help you may have... I can't find any information about this on-line so perhaps there's something wrong with my code?
I've been looking to swap out the HTC Desiree's keyboard for one with voice search in it. I installed Verizon's keyboard 2.1 but can't find a way of enabling it. I think it appears as 'Android Keyboard' under MENU > SETTINGS > LANGUAGE & KEYBOARD, but even although I ticked the box to use it, it still doesn't appear, defaulting to the HTC one instead.
Just wondering if there are any Froyo ROm's avaialble for download and installation through ROM Manager yet? It's a very exciting time but I am away from a PC so I'm waiting for ROM manager to make it simple for me to backup and install a Froyo ROM.
Looking for reasons to purchase the full version. Just drove from SE VA to DC, and had the tether all the way up I95, without any problems. Any reasons anyone can give me for purchasing the full $10 version?
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.
I have posed this question in some threads but as yet have made no progress.I am just curious as to why HTC appear to have left out the Bluetooth Voice Dialler function that can be provided by the Froyo 2.2 O/S. I believe this feature is present and enabled in some of the cooked roms and also in the Nexus one Vanilla 2.2 so why not here?If I have missed somthing simple or if anyone is aware why it is missing or how I can activate it that would be fantastic!
I ignored a wifi network with the HTC Desire WiFi manager. Now the network is not listed and do not know how it reappear. Do you have any ideas?Can you suggest me an applications that manage networks, including the ignored networks?
Can anyone recommend a good password manager app for the HTC Desire? I'm looking for an app that will allow entry of custom fields, back-up/synch to somewhere securely, and can export the records to a non-encrypted format (in case i ever change phones).I've had a good look around the Market be can't see anything suitable.
I backed up a ROM using rom manager so i could try a new one, but if i want to restore the old one do i just do so right on top of the current one. i.e. no wiping required? Or should i wipe, get ROM manager and then restore?
I hope that this is an easy one for the root masters on here.Firstly i have successfully rooted my Desire by using the unrevoked3 app so now went though without a hitch and root was successful as i have installed ROM Manger from the Market.ive clicked on the ClockworkMod Recover and that has installed fine.Ive done the Backup Current Rom and its created a folder on my SD card with the back up.Now i want to simply add A2SD or even A2SD+ as they both appear to do the same to me?Ive manually backed up my SD card as i know it needs to partition it but is it simply a case of going through that option or do i need to flash a custom ROM to it?LeeDROID looks like a good option as i like the standard set up pretty much just with launcher pro rather than Sense which i could add after?Lastly, if it all goes wrong how do i restore the backup ive created?
I was on the modaco rom but decided to try a different rom from xda. I used ROM manager but the screen was stuck on the HTC screen so i decided to cancel it. I did the follwing but its still stuck on the HTC screen. Turn off, hold vol down and press power. Boot into HBOOT. Use vol up and down to move through the menu and power to select. From here, Select recovery. At the screen with the desire and red triangle, press vol up and power. Select Wipe data/factory reset.
My only SD card is the one in my phone (its a goldcard) I installed rom manager did a SD card partition, it deleted everything on my card. Did I just destroy my goldcard? Also, my phone loads up fine etc. but i am on the stock desire FW and I have no market or google apps anymore (after the partition).
