I went to best buy to exchange my evo cause of some minor issues. It had the new ota update installed so I thought it was a pain in the butt to root it. So I got the new evo and I checked the software number and I have 1.32.651.6. Is it easier to update this phone to the new ota and use the simple root method over in xda or do it manually using the 1.32.651.6?
I'm looking for advice on the simplest and easiest way to root. I know theres something that wipes the phone, rolls back to 2.1 and then roots it. I just got my second eEo because my first overheats. It came with 2.2, is that an issue? What do I need to know about ROMs? I hear fresh evo is a good one. I don't mind losing all the sprint stuff as well as HTC. I prefer launcher pro so any widget loss doesn't bother me. I heard about the method to rollback 2.2, root it then whatever, but everywhere I found today from that day says that a simpler method should be out in a couple weeks. It has been a month, is there a simple point and click method yet?
have leak #3 and I got the OTA update a few days ago.I would like to go to ROOT.using EvilEris 3.0 I'm seeing all sorts of ways to do this..and looking for the simpilist fastest way.I'm familiar with the "put a file in the root of the SD card" and re-boot method. Is that the easiest way to get going? If so - what file do I need? "EvilEris3.0.zip" or "PB00IMG.zip" (and if so - do I need a "latest" one)?
Well, upon attempting to read as much as possible before taking the plunge, I've run across a few methods to accomplish the same thing. I'm currently running 2.1 OTA(stock) and wanted the most basic way to root with the least chance of bricking.
I've gone through the guides, but have also run into DroidMod's guide on flashing 2.1 with recovery.
RSD is a little intimidating to me and I'm afraid if I breathe wrong on the phone, it will become a paperweight.
Is using RSD the only/easiest way to gain root? Sorry for the redundant question, however there are a few threads on this topic and dated within a few months of one another and I'm which route to take.
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.
If this has been asked I cannot find it. What is the easiest, quickest method for root right now? There seems to be a new method being developed every week. I know there are basebands available to load that will help with the signal issues. Are there fixes with root that will resolve the audio issue with Pandora?
So I finally got the 2.0 root off that the guy before me had this phone on. He rooted it with droid mod, and that seemed pretty easy to use. I'm wondering and if there is someone who has more experience with this than I what is the easiest way for me to root my stock 2.1 droid?
So my phone is running 2.2 and is rooted. I'm a bit of a newb when it comes to this; what's the simplest way to remove the crapware, now that I can. Is there an app, or is it a more messy hands-on process? Either way, I can't wait to flush VZnav and City ID down the toilet they clawed their way out.
My phone is currently rooted and it was done using unrEVOked. I did not apply any custom ROMS; the only change I made was moving the Amazon and VZ Navigator apps. I selected the option to reboot and install the update when I was prompted to do so, but it just became stuck at a screen that said "Rebooting..." and it never changed. I powered it off and then back on, but the update never applied. I have not been prompted to install the update since then. I would like to apply the November update using the easiest method. If I have to unroot it, I don't care because root access isn't that important to me. I have read these instructions, but they're incomplete as they don't show you how to actually perform the steps listed, specifically step #1
ihtfp69 released a patch for his Sense and Vanilla ROMs on his Twitter a few days ago to disable these updates. Just flash the zip folder in recovery and you're set! Works perfectly. Here's the link: http://twitter.com/#!/skyraider37/status/4495189380956160
So I have an iPod and, as such, all of my music is in iTunes. But I'm wondering what the easiest way to transfer music to my Evo is. When I connected my phone to my desktop and looked around in the Music folder, I noticed that all the sample songs were organized as such: SD Card>Music>Name of Artist>Name of Song Now, if iTunes organized all it's music that way, this would be as simple as ctrl+c and ctrl+v. But it doesn't. It's all like: Music>Artist>Album>Song The Evo doesn't recognize songs organized that way. So, without making new folders for every artist and copy pasting each song into them, what's the easiest way to transfer music to the phone?
Sorry, didn't realize I was in the Support and Troubleshooting forum. I guess it still kinda fits, though.
Is there a way to create a route (i.e. Corral-234-hopewell-zulu-rector-50-bluerdge-snickers-15-234-corral - Google Maps...) and then have google navigate you through this route only? can you create the route on your phone and be navigated only on the chosen roads? Or is there a way to create a route for the sprint nav and have it navigate you through that route only?
I need advice on which app is the easiest and best phone-to-pc app. Like being able to control your computer with your phone, like a desktop controller. I found this app, Desktop Remote Free - Android app on AppBrain. I'm not quite sure how to use it?
What would be the easiest way of syncing everything on my Xperia X10? I have read some advice on the SE website but I am unsure whether what they suggest includes absolutely everything on my phone, i.e. software from the Andriod Market, music, pictures, etc.
How can I route Call sound to phone speaker on cm7 without using any Paid apps. My phones mic doesn't work and no mechanics were able to fix it. No HTC care or something is present in my city. I am able to use my phone with headphone mic. Now I want to fix the problem headphone mic to my phone but only problem is I need the sounds to come out of the phone speaker/sbox.
Basically : My phone need to do this: Headphone mic for voice input. BUT outputs call sound through phone speaker or sound box. I only need it during phone calls but all time is okay too. I'm rooted, s off on cm7.2 drowning child's kernel, on the Intruder(At&t) Version of the now low end phone HTC Aria. It has a room choice of cyanogenmod 6 and 7.2 official, cm9,10 custom ported.
So i pretty much know nothing about computer or Rom's if thats what you call it nor Droid system. So i heard that you can get better battery life on your Incredible and you can also make you phone faster. Here is what i have done so far. I install Unrevoked on my mac and connected to my phone and did its stuff. after all said and done i have and Icon on my phone called SuperUser which i have no idea what that is. Then I read that i need to download busybox , Ok! But now what? I can't seem to understand anything. All i wanted was to remove some of the preinstall apps and get a faster CPU and get better battery life. But since i dont know what i am doing and getting frustrated i just want to go back on how my phone came when it came out the box. I am idiot to this so please i need step by step on what i need to do. I have a MAC not a windows computer. Also if you think that you can walk me through with either project (remove root or what i was orig planning on doing) please send me expecting details.
So I just got my hands on an Incredible. It seems as though the easiest way to root "was" unrevoked which as I understand is broken with the latest OTA, which I noobily accepted last night as I activated my phone. Is there another manual way to root this guy?
I have a rooted dinc with a Innocell 3500mAh Extended Life Battery.Other than the battery and being rooted (removed some stock apps and added wireless tether),its still stock (ie. ROM, Kernel, etc.).I don't talk, text, or browse the web much, but I do stream Pandora ALL DAY at work.Usually about 7-8 hours non stop Ever since I rooted, it seems like it runs a little slower (ie. scrolling through home screens, exiting apps, sometimes it hangs or lags, etc. The snapdragon processor just isn't "snappy" (pun intended) as it formerly was.I was thinking about doing a Factory data reset ? or do I need to unroot, then reroot again?
I see there are a couple of threads on this but I want to make sure I have this right. I just got off with Asurion and they are shipping a replacement. I had rooted my phone, installed some root only apps like wireless tethering and set cpu, removed some bloat like CityID and Tweet/Peep, and changed the boot animation. No custom ROM or radio update.When I wanted to get the OTA update so I applied s-off and flashed back to stock recovery. So what do I need to do to return this phone. I know I will need to apply s-on. Then should I flash a stock 2.1 or just revert the changes I made to boot animation, restore the bloatware, and remove the root apps? Do I need to remove any other files that go with being root?
I know this has probably been gone over before, but I'm still looking for an LED Flashlight for the HTC Incredible. Any word on if there is one or if there is one in the works? I'd prefer to not root my phone.
I've been wanting to root my phone for a while, but I haven't had the bills to do it. I saw unrevoked released what looks like a fail proof way of doing it and I'm seriously considering taking the plunge. I'm debating whether or not to root it now or wait to see if this "possible" froyo update comes out later this month.
