HTC Incredible : Trying To Debug Mode For Android 2.2 / Root My Phone With Unprovoked
Oct 31, 2010
Fellow droid incredible users, I am trying to root my phone with unprovoked and i have the 2.2 system on my htc incredible. I'm unable to find "debug mode" in the settings and i need it on to apply the unprovoked root. Please help me find debug mode.
I rooted using a video i found on you tube. the process involved using unprovoked and amon_ra, i downgraded to 2.1 and loaded a stock sense 2.2. However, as i was exploring and reading up on roms i saw that many people said that unprovoked was a bad way to go due to some problems. So now im scared to load any roms/themes. is there a way for me to switch my root from the unprovoked method to the other method?
So I want to update my baseband for various reasons. I'm rooted and just ran unprovoked forever, so I've got s-off. I am currently running 2.1 update1, with baseband 1.00.03.04.06. how do I go about updating to a 2.xx.xx.xx.xx baseband, and do I need to be running 2.2 to do this?
I have a brand new Galaxy Tab that I am trying to use for some development. However, the usual method of installing the ADB driver isn't working on my Win 7 x64 version. (I have even tried the USBDeview method of deleting everything that looks like an Android device.)
Has anyone out there gotten this to work? If so, what did you have to do?
I'm trying to figure out a way to programmatically determine if my build was built in debug mode vs. release mode. I'd like to hide some items in my settings screen if it's release. When I build my app in Eclipse I'm building by default in Debug mode. However, when I build the app using the command line, I build it in release mode and sign the app using the jarsigner tool.
I've tried using: PackageInfo appInfo = manager.getPackageInfo("com.adobe.psmobile", PackageManager.GET_SIGNATURES); to test if appInfo.signatures.toCharsString() matches my debug signature and that didn't seem to work.
I'm now trying to see if I can introspect the app's KeyStore, to match the default debug alias described here: http://developer.android.com/guide/publishing/app-signing.html of "androiddebugkey" but I haven't figured out how to retrieve the app's KeyStore yet.
my android application runs in debug mode only even if i click the run button of the eclipse or run it by touching on its icon on the device. what will be reason for this?? anybody has any idea about it?
I have a activity B that is called by activity A, I want to debug the code in B. I have set the breakpoint, however the debug control never enters B.
When I debug in eclipse, although the class B is called from class A, the debbugger pointer never enters the new window, where I have placed a debug point in Class B. I am not able to take the pointer control to class B and stop at a specific point, which will help me verify certain variable values.
In Ubuntu, I have double checked the udev rules. They all look perfect. (I cross checked using another phone too). The USB debug mode doesn't show up no matter what. And I have the adb_usb.ini in the right place. I have tried running all possible combinations of running adb, adb start-server as root. But
adb devices shows no devices at all.
However, with the USB debugging option enabled on phone, it worked on Win7 after windows installed a Common handset driver.
If I go back to Ubuntu without disconnecting the cable and do
Code: $ adb devices * daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 * * daemon started successfully * List of devices attached 1234567890ABCDEFdevice
The product id is 1234567890ABCDEF and I am able to see it and everthing works fine!!But the moment I disconnect the USB cable, its gone.
So I guess it's not the development machine that is at fault. The device seems to be setting a property while in Windows which stays latched till the usb connection goes off.
Btw the Code:
/data/property/persist.service.adb.enable is 1 too.
I'm thinking of debranding my Orange-locked Desrie using Unrevoked3 as it's supposed to be a doddle. I've downloaded the programmer, but before I attach my phone ot my computer and press go, I have four questions: 1. Do I need to unlock my phone first? 2. Do I need a goldcard? 3. Does Unprovoked provide a ROM or do I have to install that myself separately? 4. What does this actually do? Root? Debrand? What?
I have an android application that parses some HTML, downloads an image, and displays it. I'm using an AsyncTask to do the HTML parsing and image downloading, but that shouldn't be relevant. I never have a problem when I'm on WiFi on my phone, when I'm using the Eclipse debugger on my phone, or when I'm using the emulator. When I have my phone on the cell network (even with pretty good reception), the image sometimes fails to display. I'm having a hard time figuring out what is wrong, since the problem cannot be reproduced in the debugger. Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong?
Update: I have narrowed it down to the image downloading function. This way my original code:.......................
I have a completely broken screen/lcd/digitizer on my Samsung Galaxy S3, debug mode was not on. The phone works as it will still vibrate when turned on and the LED / Menu / Back buttons light up during a boot. USB connector works as well. The phone was not previously rooted.
I had most important data on the sd card and I've already wrote off any other data on the phone as I've since moved on to a GN2. I would like to make use of the S3 (not necessarily as a phone but a server, security camera, etc.). I've read several posts here about my options and looked at numerous google articles, all seem to require debug mode being on or assume/require the data/OS must remain as this is what the user is trying to recover. I do not care if all data is lost on the phone, I just want to make the device useful again.
Am I out of luck if debug mode was not enabled or can I flash through adb via some obscure mechanism? Also note that fastboot is not an option here as the S3 (samsung) does not have it enabled. I am unable to get into "Download Mode" as I cannot see info on the screen.
I enabled debug mode in the native browser to change the UA String. I typed in "about:debug" in the address bar. I then went into settings and changed the UAString to 'Desktop.' Now, every time I open the browser = force close. Yes, I tried rebooting. What are my options?
My phone is having the 100% Awake Time issue and I can't figure out why. I've uninstalled a few apps that I thought could be the problem, but that made no difference. I then changed to a completely empty screen layout to remove any possible widget issues, still the same. Last night I installed SystemPanel so I could get a better idea of what's going on and now I'm even more confused. It doesn't show a single thing that's eating up CPU time. Under Battery Use it shows Android System at 43%, then Cell Standby and WiFi at 14%. Is there something in the Android OS that is screwy?
I'm at a complete loss on how to continue trouble shooting this. I'd really rather avoid a complete reset of the phone, but if it's the only option I have. I'm going to go through and uninstall basically everything I can today to see if I can find the culprit, but any ideas would be great. If it was an app though, wouldn't I see it in SystemPanel? Here's some shots of my use this morning. I was using it a bit, but there's obvious spots where the phone should have stopped being "awake".
Just got my Droid today, all the software is setup, the emulator works fine. But, Windows 7 will not recognize my Droid in 'Debug Mode', it did once the first time I clicked on the option but now nothing. Is there something else I should be installing for it to be recognized?
Has anyone rooted their EVO using unprovoked for Linux? I'm attempting to do so, but it's not quite working. I downloaded unprovoked 3 for Linux and it started up fine. I put my Evo in debug mode and started the unprovoked process. The process seemed to start okay, and I ended up in the hboot screen. However, when I scroll down to the hboot usb option it seemed to be looking for pcdiag.xx (goes by too quickly). After a few seconds it just came back to the default hboot screen. I also got the following in my Linux terminal: unrEVOked recovery reflash tool git version: 4f78f67, ERROR: n = -1, errno = 19 (No such device), What am I missing? Everything I read indicates that all I need to do is run the unprovoked program. Is there something else I need to have?
I've noticed that my notifications were sporadic, both from e-mail and messages. I think I even missed a call once and was surprised because I never heard it ring/vibrate. After some testing I think I've figured out that when the phone is in my pocket, and I'm sitting at my office desk, the phone is face down in that same, fairly flat level position, that turns the ringer off if you flip your phone over on a desk while in a meeting. Is there any way to turn this feature off?
I've been trying to sync my phone with my work computer for the past several days with no luck. I was able to sync using HTC Sync when I first received the phone but now I can't even get it to enter USB Mode. I was using the usb cable that came with the phone when I initially sync'd it, but since then i have picked up an additional charger/usb cable from my local authorized verizon dealer and can only charge the phone when i plug in the phone to the computer. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling HTC Sync and then installed the latest version of HTC Sync with no luck. I'm thinking that it might be the usb cable that i'm using (since i was able to sync before), but not sure if its something else (lack of driver or something like that).
I recently rooted my phone which was on 2.2 at time of rooting using unrevoked3. Everything was going well, I performed a full Nandroid backup, moved su to systemxbin as suggested in many posts. Today I did a phone shutdown, then pressed power + volume down to get into the ClockworkMod Recovery v184.108.40.206 menu with the intention of doing another Nandroid backup. I selected 'backup and restore' from the recovery menu and then pressed the power button to select. But pressing the power button only blacks out the screen instead of selecting the menu option. I tried depressing the power button for a longer period of time...same result. Essentially, I'm unable to get out of the Clockwork menu.
I made a mistake and I still had the debug version of my app (from Eclipse) on my phone when I tried to install a signed version. The install failed, but I could no longer access the debug version in Manage Applications to un install it. I was at work and couldn't reinstall the debug version in order to uni nstall, so I did a complete factory reset of my phone (using My Backup Pro to backup stuff). Now I can install my app. However, now I notice upon reboot that my app loses all of its data from shared preferences. I'm not entirely sure that it's not a problem of mine somehow, but does anyone know why it is doing that and how I can fix it? I may have left the debug gable. true on in the version I'm trying to test. Would that cause this problem?
Is there any way to get an email or text notification once my phone is in sleep mode? If my phone is "awake" it rings but once asleep I don't get any notification. Also, if my phone ringer is set to vibrate is there any way to set my email/text notification to ring or does it have to be both vibrating or both ringing.
My Incredible rings when there's a visible screen. When the screen darkens and phone enters sleep after, in my case 1 minute of non-use, any calls coming in do not ring through. Voicemail picks them up but there is no indication that I have an incoming call unless I wake the phone up and check the upper left hand menu for the voicemail icon. This can't be set up right. When the phone is asleep (dark screen) but not powered off, there has got to be a setting that lets calls ring through and awaken the phone so it can be answered.
