I took unrooted my phone today because I was going to excange it for a new one because of a loose headphone jack but it turns out it was my headphones. I used SMupdater and it went fine. now when I try ot root again I get a "can't open cache/recovery/command" error in recovery and it wont let me select any of the options by hitting the camera button. idk what to do
so im on my second eris root. all is well thus far, accept now i am trying to boot from recovery to put vanilladroid on it, and i cant get into recovery mode. i didnt have this problem with the last phone i did this to, and i dont know what im doing wrong at this point. i have reloaded amon's recovery image, and done all of that process over again. nothing works, when i boot power/volume up, all i get is the skateboard guys, then the exclamation point inside a triangle, with a phone laying down. "button mashing" on the end and send buttons then leads the phone to reboot back to normal mode. i even tried to reboot recovery from adb, and still got this end result. i am out of ideas (as im no programmer...)also, i have tried to get on irc, but keep getting booted, even when switching sn's.so ive given up on that as well
I was having black SLCD (RUU_Bravo_HTC_WWE_1.21.405.2_T2_Radio_32.41.00.32 U_4.08.00.09_release_137222_signed.exe) and have solved the problem right now and do OTA update to Froyo and there is System Info.:
Am I wrong in thinking that a dd based tool would be better than having to rely on a 3rd party recovery? If you used to dd, you wouldn't have to deal with any of that stuff right? Could you not just make images of all the partitions of your device and store them on your computer as backup? Then if you get bricked, could you not use those images again and just re-image the drive?
That's the problem I'm having with my device. My buttons will no longer function so I can't flash anything in the recovery and using Odin (Samsung) to flash works but no existing roms or kernels that I can find will fix the touchscreen.
However, I can access the device through ADB and I'm assuming I could get the device to show its partitions on Linux right? So then could I use someone else's existing partitions and re-image those on my device?
So, has anyone with this error been able to push the update through? i read (cant find it now) that this has something to do with OTA updates. the way i understood it was, this is a folder Verizon looks for during an update. so if thats true would it cause me to get stuck in on the MOTO LOGO screen?
Is this possible? I'm trying to make an automated script without any user interaction. I can select sideload mode manually using the volume and power buttons when in ClockworkMod Recovery, however I want to enter sideload mode using the command prompt from my computer.
As if punk.kaos didn't already have his hands full with his Froyo updates, he started working on this: [RECOVERY-BETA] Eris Multiboot recovery hack - xda-developers Apparently, its a (very early) multi-boot for the Eris...very interesting and very cool. Got other questions? Visit his thread (above) over on XDA...
So I am trying to root my phone I am at the point where I am rooted and I have made a nandroid backup. I have moved those files to my computer and put the bugless beast nandroid files in their place. The problem is when I go to Droidroothelper and select reboot/recovery my phone reboots and the /! comes up on my screen and a line on the bottom says E: can't open /cache/recovery/command......
any tips I dont know what to do to load the nandroid backup of the bugless beast.
I really am trying to order my Eris today. I have been waiting for the Passion, though I am not even sure I would choose it over the Eris. Also considered the Moto many times, but just can't get over how large it feels in my pocket (also concerned I am too rough on things to have a sliding mechanism on my phone). As Eris owners, am I crazy not to wait it out another 4 weeks or so to see if the Passion's speed and screen resolution are worth an extra $100+?? By the way, I am not worried about the battery.
I returned the Moto Droid on day 29 because it was bulky, I worried about the slider mechanism (and barely ever used the physical keyboard), and because I was very envious of the Sense UI on the Eris. The biggest thing was that when I had to turn the phone off or the couple of times I had to do a battery pull, it took 5-10 minutes before the phone would let me make a call. I have been pretty happy with the Eris as I love the physical buttons and the trackball and Sense UI and the form factor. But looking over the Droid threads on various forums, I do miss the beautiful screen and the quickness of the browser and changing between screens. I was a bit pissed that the software updates were after the exchange period for people who bought the phones when they came out. It really doesnt matter I suppose as I am not able to exchange this phone out for anything else. I understand why Verizon doesnt let you exchange repeatedly but its so hard to know how well a phone will do for you until you use it for a while. Full price is always an option if a higher-end HTC comes out but my husband wouldnt be too thrilled with that I think.
Are any of you having trouble with this? The sensor doesn't seem to be working the way it should. I have a problem accessing the keyboard during calls to automated services and sometimes the screen won't stay lit long enough for me to end my calls.
Aside from that, my Droid keeps freezing up today. I haven't had any trouble with that before. I've got a week to go before I pass my 30 day trial. I'm not sure what to do. This phone has to be mailed in as I got it online. If there's a way to fix these problems, I'd rather not send it in and wait 3 weeks to receive a new one.
I have a php web page that will randomize an image that is 158x154. I was able to get the android application to work, but would also like to get it to work as a widget. How the heck can I get a widget to pull information from the net? I got the widget to work and layout correctly with a black sample image. I have tried to look at the wiki sample, but it is a bit too complicated for my little brain to grasp. The data that gets pulled looks something like:
Anyone else deal with this, I will use it like 30 seconds prior, lock the screen and go to pick it up and nothing, I have to pull the battery and reboot. Happens a couple times a month maybe, usually happens when I am actually trying to do something. I am currently running on Nonsensikal 8.8 but it did it on Ivans 1.0 and Nonsensikal 7.5 as well. It may have done it on the stock 2.1 rom as well, but I cannot remember. It seems to happen more often now that it is on Froyo though.
I've had my eris for awhile now, no problems thus far Today, 3 times now I've gotten a text (first using handcent, now chomp) and when I pull down to clear/read it in the notifcations tab, sometimes its disappeared and then when I go into the messaging app, its GONE! WTH? Is there a setting I messed with that is making it do this, or how do I fix it?
I've had to ask people to re-send their text message, that gets pretty old for both of us. I rebooted and have yet to see if that has done anything, I havent gotten a message since I did.
Does anyone know if there is a way to change the text that always says "Verizon Wireless" when you pull down the notification bar? I am currently not rooted, but will be doing so in the next few days (I'm still trying to decide what ROM i want to flash to start out). I don't know if this is even possible, but I thought it would be another good way to make my phone unique.
I'm trying to install a new lockscreen that I found on XDA. I have to use a command prompt to install and I'm completely lost. I just got a good handle on how to flash zip files but this is flying straight over my head. I have all the commands and codes or whatever but I don't even know where to begin I have a feeling this is probably very simple I've just never had any reason to do anything like this before.
I mean to say that i want a notification(Command) same as when we type *#06# in home screen it will show a IMEI no. in the same way when i press a certain code (eg: *#12345#) then it will notify to my service which is running in background.
I seem to have issues flashing to new ROMs. I finally figured out how to do a logcat and was wondering if you guys would take a look? I just flashed over nonsensikal black 5.4 and when booting up ran the command adb logcat. I copied what I think is most of the text in the command prompt window by selecting mark and pulling the cursor down to cover all of the text, then pressed enter. copied to text file.
I have a rooted samsung captivate with sideloading enabled. After experimenting with different wifi tethering apps from the unofficial market, I began experiencing difficulties with my wifi connection. Even after uninstalling every app that I thought was changing the wifi state, the problem still persists. I can turn on the wifi and it will act normally for about 30 seconds before turning off without user intervention. In dmesg, the error is as follows: 'mmc1: Got command interrupt 0x00060001 even though no command operation was in progress.' Is this caused by an app or is this a more complicated problem?
I have a Nexus 10. I like to plug it into my TV via HDMI and watch videos or play games, or what have you. Since the aspect ratio doesn't match the TV I get black bars on the sides. In a command line, one can type
Code: am display-size 2560x1440
to change the resolution of the screen and get rid of the black bars on the TV completely (at the cost of adding black bars on the top and bottom of the tablet.)
Code: am display-size reset Sets it back to normal.
Rather than typing this into a terminal /every time/ I want to do this, is there a simple widget or app that will let me set up a shortcut on the homescreen that I can just click on to toggle instead?
