I was wondering if it is possible to dual boot ios on android? Yes, there are already threads on it, but time passed so you never know. Is it impossible or are there ways? I would really love to dual boot.
So I am new into the world of playing with phones. I come from the computer realm as an engineer for the past 10years or so. So far I have not tried to root or anything but I fully intend to give it a try in the very near future. Anyways the reason behind this post is I am interested in the possibility to dual boot my device. i.e. I want to keep the stock build of 2.1 with sense but I want to be able to still play around with a 2.1 or even 2.2 (hopefully) ROM without losing my stock setup. Is this even possible? I hear a lot of people also saying they switch between ROMs often. Can you do that without losing all of the data that you have loaded on the phone already? If that is the case then switching back and forth between stock and a new ROM takes out the need for the dual boot requirement.
I have a Sony Ericsson Aspen with windows mobile 6.5 - 256MB RAM, 600MHz, 320x240px. I saw a thread named RunDroid-Dual Boot to Android. I downloaded the files needed [from thepiratebay] for HTC HD2 <Magnet Link> and the app RunDroid. I installed RunDroid on internal memory and the android rom on the sd card [sdhc 4gb]. Can you recommand me an Android Rom that would work on my device [specifications] ?
Edit: When I try to boot on android, it says 'Haret: Booting Linux' and then 'Error: Terminating haret due unhandeled exception 9pc=00c83fb40'
Has anyone used this from XDA. I'm a Behold 2 owner and I'm thinking of picking up the HD2 when released by TM. Windows Mobile Devices to Get Dual-Boot Android/WinMo Solution! Resolution is not supported yet for HD2 but should be by this time the phone is released.
After messing with the LED Light app, it appears that only my bottom LED is lighting up. I've tried taking multiple pictures in different lighting situations and I'm having the same problem. I could have sworn that both LEDs lit up before. I've never kept the LED Light app on for an extended amount of time so I don't believe I've caused it to burn out.
I try to understand android boot sequence on my JB (under CM10). I found some docs and there should be specific partitions (boot, recovery, system, cache, data).
My understanding of the boot sequence is now:
A) normal boot: 1) Power ON -> 2) bootloader -> 3) boot-partition where i flashed the kernel aka boot.img -> 4a) system-partition with the OS (libs, UI, etc) where i unpacked over CWM my customROM.zip -> 4b) data-partition, where i unpacked google-apps.zip and installed all the apps -> 4c) cache-partition with user data
B) recovery boot (adb reboot recovery): 1) Power ON -> 2) bootloader -> 3) recovery-partition with CWM where i may unpack all the .zip stuff to proper partitions, or restore from sdcard, etc.
Is this correct? I wonder, because i didn't installed CWM into recovery-partition. It cames from install of CM10 (fastboot -i 0xfce flash boot boot.img), so it must be in boot-partition and not in recovery?
So, next confusion: i looked up to /proc/mtd and i don't see neither boot nor recovery partition here:
I did a backup with CWM and loocked the data. There aren't boot, and recovery backups:
# ls -lha /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/2012-10-04.18.49.55/ d---rwxr-x 2 system sdcard_r 4.0K Oct 4 18:56 . d---rwxr-x 3 system sdcard_r 4.0K Oct 4 18:49 .. ----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 1.6K Oct 4 18:54 .android_secure.vfat.dup ----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 54.6M Oct 4 18:55 cache.yaffs2.img ----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 360.2M Oct 4 18:53 data.yaffs2.img ----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 212 Oct 4 18:56 nandroid.md5 ----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 214.6M Oct 4 18:51 system.yaffs2.img #
So, i think i didn't understand the boot sequence and partition schema corectly.
Instead of seeing the boring old Android logo or my service provider's logo, I'd love to see the standard text-based Linux boot screen that shows the status of all the hardware and configuration info as my phone boots. My current phone is an HTC EVO 3D running Cool ICS with Sense 3.6 and Revolutionary CWM.
I went to reboot my Droid because it was lagging a little and when it came back on it go stuck at the Cyanogen boot screen. I pulled the battery, put it back in and held the X to boot in recovery and my recovery won't come up either. It just skips right to the Motorola M and if it doesn't get stuck there it goes back to the Cyanogen screen.
I haven't made any changes to the phone at all so I am completely puzzled on why this is happening. I obviously can't take it back to Verizon since its rooted so if there is a way to fix this I really want to because I love my phone and my wife will kill me if it is screwed up.
I've seen positive reviews on the dual mic noise cancellation of the nexus one. However, what I haven't seen addressed is whether than noise cancellation is bypassed when using a bluetooth headset? It would be cool if the nexus one provided the same noise cancellation when using a bluetooth headset, but I kinda doubt it. Anyone know for sure?
My friend is after a new mobile and I pointed him towards the Desire HD & Desire (there's the only relevance). He is quite adamant about having a Dual Sim mobile. Anybody know anything about them? Benefits? Ones to look out for? I don't know anything about them, but he's come to me for geeky knowledge. He's having a look at these android ones: Reach Tech (Xiamen) Co., LTD amongst a few others.
I am having an issue with dual notifications. I have Handcent and those are the only SMS notifications I want to get. I'm getting another one - I assume from the pre-installed "Messages" app, but I can't figure out how to turn off notifications with it.
I want to ask if is possible to buil an app that permit to connect my Android phone with the remote sim in onother phone not android. This app make possible receive and make calls and SMS. Is the same use of the hardware GMATE.
is there any CALL BLOCKING software for android DUAL DIM PHONES..in which call reject can be set on the basis of SIM...that is if a number is rejected to call on SIM1 but the same number is allowed to call on SIM 2....
my friend bought me CAT B15 from US,(i live in Indonesia).when i use my cat B15 i realize that the phone cannot connect to 3G, because when i use the same SIM card to another android it can connect to 3G. and the dual SIM card cannot work too.i checked in setting menu, ther is no option for dual SIM card and for 3G.the contact support ask me to send it back to the distributor, but i think it's not make sense.
