KitKat 4.4 :: Moto G Dialpad Does Not Load First Time After Android 4.4.2 Update?
Feb 15, 2014
I got Android Kitkat update for Moto G this Friday, here at India .. Update went smooth and looks good. But now the phone dialpad does not load at all the first time I touch the dialpad icon (it brings up a small white panel layout). Pressing the dialpad again second time loads up the new cool dialpad introduced in 4.4.2 kitkat update.
I don't have KitKat yet, but I was reading the dialpad doesn't automatically pop up when you hit the phone button. Is there a way to automatically make the dial pad pop up instead of the search? If I want to search for a phone number I'll go into the internet. When I click on the phone icon I want the dialpad to be there. If there isn't a way to fix this then I might not upgrade my phone when the time comes to upgrade.
Upgraded to KitKat last night and now my RAZR HD will not display the correct time nor connect to Google. I can't fix either issue and haven't found an exact issue after several hours of searching on the internet. Not surprisingly, Verizon store dude has never seen the issue and has no clue.
After the upgrade completed the date and time on the phone were February 23rd, 2014 about 3 PM (upgrade finished 5/25 around 9pm) and none of the Google related tasks, apps, functions would work. This includes the search at the top of the home screen, email wouldn't sync, search in Chrome would not work, could not switch over to my 2nd gmail account, Play Store would not work, etc.
Time and date would not update manually nor via the system. I turn off the auto update and enter the time or date manually and it does not update. Current time and date stay. I have rebooted and did a factory reset with no change. When I try to add my existing Google account after the reset, I get an error message stating "Can't establish a reliable connection to the server. This could be a temporary problem or your Android device may not be provisioned for data services." I have a data services turned on.
Before I cleared the cache and app data for Chrome, the message I would receive when I tried to do a search or go to any Google.com URL said something about the SSL and couldn't make a connection.
3 days ago I purchased a brand new factory unlocked Moto G in Pakistan. The problem is, whenever I try to uninstall any app I downloaded off the Play Store the phone shuts down and then the start-up screen is displayed after which the phone restarts back to the unlock screen. I did a complete reset to factory settings but the problem still persists. The version of Android is 4.4.2
When I looked at my phone this morning [Moto X, 4.4.2] I saw that the Google search bar at the top of my home screen has changed. It's hard to describe, but it looks like a spotlight. The spotlight starts underneath the microphone on the right side of the search bar and it shines on the word 'Google' on the left side.

Google Now Launcher on the Moto G? I don't really like the stock launcher and was thinking to install this(I like to keep with Google/trusted apps, so I don't install much on my phone nor want to try out the other launchers). Is it stable as the original launcher?
I tried switching to ART and, after rebooting, I started testing all my apps to see how well they run. When I got to Whatsapp, I was getting repeated crashes. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but I couldn't reinstall. When I looked it up on the internet, I found that the problem was not with the app itself, but with ART in 4.4 and that the issue had been addressed in the 4.4.1 update, which isn't available for the Moto X yet. So, I tried switching back to Dalvik, but now I still can't reinstall Whatsapp even in Dalvik runtime.
I get an error box when I try to install from the Play Store. "Unknown error code during application install: -24". I tried downloading the apk from the Whatsapp website and sideloading it, but my phone won't install that either.
All, I've googled over and over again to find a solution and while I found a bug regarding camera release, etc I can not for the life of me seem to get the cam code to work. Every time I executed takePicture the system simply hangs, sometimes it calls the PictureCallback, but most of the time it simply hangs.Weird issues about not being able to read /data/ap_gain.bin files, etc
Suppose i have an application "MyApp" which has a button and when clicked it should start another application say"App2" but this "App2" should not be installed on the phone it should dynamically be executed.how do i do this in android.it will be helpful if u can explain with some sample code.
Yesterday my Verizon Motorola droid was automatically updated from Android 2.1 to 2.2. I was informed that it had been done via text message. I was not consulted or warned, only informed after the fact. It does not cause any problem in my app. I used the getSDcardPath (syntax approx) rather than hard-coding /sdcard/data..... and I have not found any other conflicts.
How are Android updates handled on devices? Always done automatically, this instance of auto update was unusual, or what?
If it is always done automatically then we MUST incorporate all accommodations for future changes that are not backwards compatible just to keep our apps running on machines that they were designed to run on. (it is difficult to anticipate all future changes!)
Previous to this automatic update, I was thinking that we should incorporate all accommodations for future changes that are not backwards compatible so the app would run on future Android versions. (this option does not require knowledge of the future.)
I'm working with Eclipse and writing an Android application. I've noticed that the load times to the Android emulator can vary significantly. Recently, I found that manually going back to the main menu of the emulator helps my application load much faster.Is there a quicker way (read: automatic way) to exit out of my application rather than hitting the Back button multiple times until I get to the main app menu? Secondly, is there something I am doing wrong that factors into the longer load time?
I'm trying to guess why a user would report "Force quits every time I load" the problem does not occur for all users, especially not me.The system constructs a database when it first loads. I suspect that user's phone does not have enough memory.Questions: How can I verify that the system has enough memory to store a small database? What else might cause a user's particular system to force quit on startup?Wrong answers or things I've tried thus far:The user's hardware is probably different than mine The user's software and available memory is likely different as well The data is already loading in its own thread, with a progress dialog showing
I just did the update on Verizon this weekend on my Galaxy s4 and now when I am on my wifi, the 4g icon lights up. I do not get the upload-download arrows on the 4g icon at home, so it appears to be the wifi is the one working.
Just wondering if it is suppose to take a little while for the app management to display apps
I have a nexus one also and did a quick comparison... both have relatively the same apps ( i keep them as synced as possible)
Now its not really an Apples to Apples Comparison as I have Froyo running on nexus but what made me raise an eyebrow was when the little Loading Indicator doesn't smoothly move while its loading. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4pNBkEuN4Q8
YouTube videos takes longer to load. My browser sometimes doesn't load web pages completely and the speeds are way slower then 3g... Well atleast on my end... I'm in Baltimore and 4g is very much up and running. Not ranting, its just that 4g was one of sprints selling points, jus think it could be a bit better.
Motorola moto G8. First thing I did is connected the phone to the charger and next I turned on the power. Next I got a notice about an available Android update, which I accepted. Downloading the update went smooth (via WiFi). But then my phone asked to reboot to install updates. Now I'm seeing the same screen 'cycle' for three hours. I see the Android guy with some blue geometrical shapes in his belly. Under that guy there's a status bar and the text 'installing update'. The status bar moves to a certain point, seems to freeze and then jumps towards the end. Next the screen goes black for a second and then the same cycle repeats itself.
With a largely white image on screen, if you tilt the phone to the left, does it take on a pinkish hue? Also, does adding a Shortcut -> Application take insanely long to load every single time? I just want to make sure I'm not the only one experiencing this.
Does anyone know of a list of all the available Android *#*# keypad commands? e.g. *#*#4636#*#* opens up test mode. I tried a web search, and searching the forums, but searching for special characters like that, doesn't seem to work very well. Even tried escaping them with various combinations of quotes and backslashes, but no joy.
Any apps that make the dialpad show up during an active call? When I pull the phone away from my ear, I don't want to see who I'm talking to, I already know that. Not a real pressing need for me to look at the little green Android guy either.Instead, that action usually means I need to press a series of numbers for an automated call service. My dialer has a small button in the lower left corner that will bring up the dialpad but I would prefer it be up front and center by default. It's a small thing but if there's something out there to make it happen, I'd be interested.
If I have a number of Market update notifications and migrate away from the screen while downloading and update, the other update notifications no longer show on the screen, and I can't get them back. Any idea of how to do that?
