Jelly Bean :: LG Nexus 4 16gb - How To Use Android Jelly Bean 4.3
Sep 21, 2013
I just purchased my first ever cell phone ( Google LG Nexus 4 16gb ) . I have never used one before , just never had the need for one . How to use Android Jelly Bean 4.3 and also how to use this phone .
I have bee getting a notification for the past few weeks saying storage is almost full. I switched from a small 4gb SD to a 16gb SD and within an hour of switching to the larger card I began getting the notification again.
The jellybean box itself turns on and the home screen loads up. I select the page where all the apps are...select xbmc app...sometimes it flicks back to main apps page other times the screen turns black/blank. I can't get further than this page....my box has worked perfectly for the past 3 months since purchasing. I can't get into the settings page as I can't get past the blank .
Best way I could describe it. On ICS the dialer would allow me to type a number and come back to it later, now when I multi-task the number disappears. I am running 4.1.2 on a HTC Desire 300, and the dialer is stock to the best of my knowledge.
I got my shiny new Nexus 7 three days ago and connected it to my gmail account. Then I tried searching the play store and it doesn't seem to be working properly - apps like iPlayer and Evernote are 'not compatible with my device' and when I search for other apps I don't get the proper, basic ones like camera, only independently made ones that are less popular. When I try to download these I get an error message - Error while retrieving information from server (RPC:S-7 EOS:AEC-O). So I tried looking for solutions on the internet - sync it, remove Google account and put it back on, I've even tried setting up an entirely new email, but nothing has worked. I've noticed my device has a permanent sync error but nothing has remedied that. This is all terribly annoying as a device is pretty useless without apps, although I managed to download Facebook right when I got the tablet. The internet works fine, and my Wi-Fi is strong.
So, I have had a Nexus 10 for a while, I love the thing. One of my big reasons for buying? More pixels than any other tablet at the time. I am a big fan of being able to see as much as possible, but sadly it doesn't work that way...
A website I frequent recently changed to add advertisements to the right side. Somewhat annoying, but hey, gotta make money. In doing so they added a 300 pixel margin to the right side of their pages to allow for the ad. On my 1080p monitor, it's no issue, plenty of pixels to go around. The content on this page is also set to 100% wide, making it use up my entire screen very nicely. Then I view the same page on my Nexus 10, or any mobile browser for that matter, and it looks like garbage, because everything has been over doubled in size.
I get why the browser does this, to make everything easier to view and interact with. I don't care about that, I want to be able to see as much content as possible at once, I want all of my pixels to be used. So that is what I want to find out, is there any way to make any android browser display things at actual size, instead of zoomed in size? The main browser I use is the stock one because of the Desktop user agent (several sites, like Wikipedia, are so awful to navigate in Chrome since it mobile formats them) and I have tried Dolphin as well (which has a zoom setting but it doesn't make a difference). I know Dolphin has an option to add a custom user agent, so is there any user agent that fix this issue that I should put in? Or is there an app that addresses this?
I recently got the new Nexus 7 running 4.3 and wondering if there's a way to block ads without rooting (I mean ads from webpages while using your browser). I had rooted my phone a long time ago and remember there was a great adblock that did the job perfectly. But I don't want to root the Nexus 7.
On my laptop computer, I use AdBlock as an extension the the Chrome browser. But extensions don't exist on the Chrome Android version (at least not that I'm aware of).
I did fine an ad blocker (forgot the name) that used a proxy, but it was a pain as you had to manually add the proxy to every wifi connection and it also wrecked havock on some websites (e.g. couldn't log into e-bay).
These ads really slow down web surfing, specially when your browser is in "Desktop" user agent mode.
BBC iPlayer switches my tablet off if I try to resume playing a downloaded programme after I've switched tablet off. I emailed iplayer support who claimed they had not come across this problem. I think it might have been since 4.4.2 was installed.
I have samsung galaxy nexus with android 4.2.1 .. I install Kies driver in windows 7 (on my laptop) , but my computer cannot recognize my phone. the phone is charged and when the phone plug in to my computer, sometimes the phone shows the message of USB Debugging connected and connected as a media device in top of screen and shows the pic of these but after a second again this message remove. My computer cannot shows my phone like a usb and i can't go to my sd card of my phone via my computer.
in some days later, my computer can recognize my phone but when i install Intellij , my computer can not recognize phone. I unistall kies and again i install this but when the install complete my computer shows a picture like this
My phone recognize in a mili second and afer unrecognized! my problem is for my cable phone?
My father is getting a Nexus 7 in the next few days and since I'll be using it a bit I've decided to put a custom ROM on it. I'm going with Paranoid Android because of the whole tablet UI thing, but I was wondering if it has a multiple user system, since I didn't see it listed in the features. I noticed an option for it on my Xylon ROM on my Galaxy Nexus and I'm not really sure how it works... Does it just change which Google account the device is linked to? Ideally it would be cool if I could set up a different launcher for each account.
I have a Nexus S on Jelly Bean running and a few days ago I came across the Sound Search app in the widgets list and absolutely fell in love with it. When I restarted my phone after a day for some other reason, I realised that my Sound Search app wasn't there on the home screen anymore and was neither in the widget list.
I tried to download an apk but it just says that this file already exists, so I'm not sure what to do!!
I have a very serious problem as I cannot reboot my galaxy nexus as i tried to update my phone to JELLY BEAN. I watched the tutorial video on how to install jelly bean on my phone on youtube. Furthermore, I downloaded this ROM ''CyanogenMod 9.0''
But unfortunately everything messed up and phone is not rebooting now.
I tried to load Cyanogenmod on my galaxy nexus. unfortunately I had copied one of the nightly update files instead of a stable version. so the install did'nt work and I did a factory reset from recovery mode. Now the computer doesn't even recognize my phone any more, when I connect it via USB. and my phone is stuck on the google screen when I try to turn it on.
I'm using a galaxy nexus, with jellybean, yakju (not rooted) I accidentally deleted all my photos and i really want them back i searched around but most of the recoveris need it to be in mass storage mode, but the galaxy nexus has internal memory and uses MTP. How can I recover my files??
I have a Nexus 7 2012 wifi version that I have updated to kit kat. I decided to root it but there's no way, believe me I've spent a lot of time on it. No driver available (or at least nothing works). I need to roll it back to jelly bean, then I should be able to get the correct driver and root it. So here's the 64 thousand dollar question: How can I take a device that's already been updated to kit kat and install jelly bean on it?
I cannot make double space-period to work on neither the Nexus 4 nor 10 (both with stock 4.3). I just do not know what am I doing wrong. What I did so far on both devices was to go to Settings, Language & Input, Google Keyboard English (US) settings button, Advances settings and checked the Double-spaced period. Based on some old threads for other devices I found here I also tried clearing both cache and data for Google Keyboard (under all Apps settings).
I have a Nexus 4 running Android 4.3 (build JWR66Y), with the stock ROM. I recently started using other launchers, at first Nova. I did notice, however, random reboots ever since. I thought it might be some new apps, but even uinstalling them didn't solve the problem. Then I switched to Action Launcher, and after a few hours of use, the reboots started all over again.
Now I'm running only the original launcher, no troubles at all. How to solve this issue with third party launchers?
I have a Nexus 10. I use it for personal and business use. I have created "Restricted User account" for business use. I would like to separate the pictures in my gallery into personal and business. How do I moved images from my personal gallery into the business account.
I can't put any music on it. My computer will either stay frozen on copying the first song to copy, or it will tell me that the Nexus disconnected. I'm using the original cable that came with it, and I tried another one already.
Android 4.1 has a better glyph support for Japanese users (renders Japanese-specific versions of glyphs WHEN system language is set to Japanese).
I use a lot Japanese (reading / writing) and what see when system language is NOT set to Japanese is the Chinese glyphs characters instead of Japanese ones. Often those are the same as the Japanese glyph but in some cases they are not.
But if I set the system language to Japanese the glyphs are the good ones. So, it's not so convenient to set system language to Japanese every time I need to read or write in Japanese !
It looks to be done with a fallback fonts list that gets switched with the UI locale. Inside of /system/etc/ there are two XML files: fallback_fonts and fallback_fonts-ja. In the ja one the order of MTLmr3m.ttf font is placed before DroidSansFallback.ttf. The MTLmr3m.ttf file is the Motoya Japanese font and the DroidSansFallback.ttf is the fallback font that has the simplified Chinese glyphs.
The fix to allow Japanese instead of Simplified Chinese with a non-Japanese UI would be to copy the fallback_fonts-ja file to fallback_fonts. Before doing that it would be a good idea to copy fallback_fonts to something else like fallback_fonts.backup so that you could restore it later. However, before doing any of this you would also need to root your device since the /system directory can't be edited otherwise.
This is what I found [URL] ... and what I done. I even tried to edit the fallback_fonts file to put MTLmr3m.ttf font before DroidSansFallback.ttf. But in any case, once I reboot my Nexus 7, the Japanese font are not read anymore (juste leaving blank).
Any solution to use the MTLmr3m.ttf file (Japanese font) instead of DroidSansFallback.ttf without setting the system language to Japanese ?
So since I've been using the new jelly bean OS 4.2 I've noticed how the wonderful widgets automatically move as you attempt to place 1 but I've also noticed that the widgets take up more space in the need some times. Try placing the analog clock on 1 of your screens and then place icons around it, you will see that if you could overlap widgets or overlap widgets and icons you could use your screen real estate more efficiently.
I have a gsm galaxy nexus, running the latest jelly bean, not rooted. I recently noticed that my clock app is gone. I can no longer find it in the app drawer. Also, the widget on the lock screen is gone, replaced by an older looking clock that has none of the functionality (stop watch, alarms, etc...) that the stock app came with. How I can get it back? Any app randomly disappear?
I'm currently using a Nexus 7 (2012 model) running Android Jelly Bean 4.3. I've been having a strange issue where the Google Play app keeps saying there is no connection. This has also occurred in the Youtube app. I have tried changing my time manually, rebooting my device, and uninstalling updates, to no avail. I am currently unlocked and rooted, and using TWRP as my recovery.
