I have plenty of applications that I only use like once a month or even less. Yet, many are always on, for no reason. What are my options to make it so that they ONLY run when I need them? I saw that they are apps that constantly watch the processes and kill them every time they appear. That doesn't seem like a great approach, not very efficient. And What if I want to use the app?
I want to make my app launched when the Android OS startup. I can make it, but when the Android OS startup, the screen lock is launched, how can I remove the screen lock launch so that I can get into my app directly? I am doing this in my embedded system.
I am experiencing a weird problem. On startu,p while the notification bar is displaying "preparing sd card" and "preparing phone storage" a strange tone is played. It sounds like a ringtone preview...but it doesn't sound pleasant. It makes you believe that there is an error somewhere, but there is no verbal notification. I recently updated several apps at once and installed a new one. I thought this may be the problem, but I still have the sound after uninstalling new app.
On my Captivate, sometimes when I boot up (turn on phone) it does not make any sound. I prefer it that way, but must have turned it "off" inadvertently. Not sure what I did - is it an app I downloaded maybe, or perhaps a certain keystroke?
I know some of you have been wanting to get rid of that annoying startup sound on your phone. Here's what you'll need....(some instructions copied from Maerlim to save time)
You'll need the Android SDK (guide to download and install is here) You'll need the USB drivers (Stickied post in this forum) You'll need root access (look for the Captivate Root thread by chaoscentral) You'll need Busybox (available on the market after you root the phone)
Connect USB to phone with USB Debugging ON Open a Windows Command prompt in the SDK install directory cd tools adb shell su cd etc ******************* I suggest backing up the file before deleting cp PowerOn.wav /sdcard/ ******************* rm PowerOn.wav exit exit
THAT'S IT! I renamed the Windows 7 logon .wav file to PowerOn.wav and copied it to the /etc directory on the phone played it on startup, so you should be able to put whatever you like in there!
If you want to copy a file there..... Open a Windows Command prompt in the SDK install directory cd tools adb push "the location and name of the file on your pc" /sdcard (example adb push %userprofile%DesktopPowerOn.wav /sdcard) adb shell su cp /sdcard/PowerOn.wav /etc exit exit
Every time I start my phone it seems that every program in the app catalog starts up. Until I activate the Advanced Task Killer and shut them all down, the thing runs like a hog. I have quite a few programs installed, but I dont use them all all of the time. Why do they all start up and is there any way beside the ATK to stop them? Is there any way to modify the startup files?
Did anybody find out a way to disable the loud start up sound on the lg ally? I don't like having my phone on all the time and when I turn it on. I don't want the start up sound playing. Even if the phone is on silent when I turn it off, the sound plays anyway. This seems like it should be a simple fix, but I have yet to see any change since the recent android update.
I've been trying for a week now to figure out how to silence/change or disable the 'plink' sound that I get when waking my EVO from sleep. I use 'no lock' and it allows me to wake the screen without using the power button but that 'plink' is driving me nuts.
Is it possible to disable the notification sound that plays when I connect my phone to my PC? I tried upchucking SD card notifications, but thats not it. It is really annoying to have to hear that loud sound when I am in the office. Thanks
I have a rooted Sanyo Zio running Android 2.2, kernel 18.104.22.168-perf, on Ting's service (a recently opened Sprint affiliate). Every so often, particularly when in poor reception, I receive notifications along the lines of:
These don't bother me much, as Ting just came out of beta and is working on ironing problems out. However, these error codes are accompanied by an annoying chirp tone, which I want to disable. I've dug through the /system/media/audio folders looking for it, and can't find it. Where this particular notification sound is, so I can kill it?
My definition/expectation of a 'notification' is a graphic/text message with the option to enable/disable a sound to alert me that the notification came in per app.
I want to:
1- enable/disable graphic/text per app
2- enable/disable sound per app
For #1, it looks like I have to go Setting>App Manager>All>Uncheck 'show notifications'. But, apparently that will disable everything...ie, no graphic/text or sound. I've tried lock screen and notification apps without luck so far......
Right now my phone makes the same sound whether I get a email or a text message. Can I make one have a different sound than the other? If so please tell me in detail how. I only see one notification sound area.
