KitKat 4.4 :: Moto X - What Happened To Search Bar
May 16, 2014
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.
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

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.
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.
For some reason google search widget is being obnoxious and i cant remove it from my home. it wont even respond to long presses. i tried deletion and that made my phone unable to reboot.
so I just re-flashed my CM11 ROM again. It just bothers me because its always sending out packet data and utilizing my cpu even in background...i thought it would be easy. my galaxy express sgh-i437 only has a dual core 1.5ghz.
I have a Galaxy S5 with 4.4.2. I dont recall if this happened when I had my S4 but this is my issue. When I am in my car and connected to the cars bluetooth, whenever I want to speak to google to do a search or something it goes through the bluetooth of the car. This would be fine but sometimes it waits like 2-3 seconds until the bluetooth in car picks up and messes up my train of thought. I would like to make the voice search not use the bluetooth when connected.
android users I was told months back that when 2.1 update released it would have adobe flash! (among many other things) well i got the 2.1 update today and have to be honest was not super impressed, although i will say my web browsing experience has improved and the phone seems to be overall faster would still love to have adobe flash i guess thats the "golden question" does anyone know if my droid will ever get it?
Hey guys, something is going on with my keyboard. I'm currently using the stock keyboard. You know when you put your finger on a letter and you get the box hovering over telling what letter you are pressing? For some reason mines not showing up when I use the keyboard in portrait mode. But when I go to the number pad or w/e they show up again. When the keyboard is in landscape mode, it doesn't suffer from any of these problems. The only thing I did with the keyboard was install the thick fingers keyboard to test it out and then I installed it. Can you guys help me out?
I posted this elsewhere but didn't get an answer. Market Apps used to have a Preview button so you could peek at the app before installing, but I don't see that after upgrading to 2.2. Did I miss something?
I just noticed the QuickOffice app link is not in the App Drawer anymore. The app is still on the phone cause if I open a xls file within file manager, it opens under QuickOffice. Anyone else app link missing, or is it just me?
I'm not sure what's going on, but I tried to post this before, and it didn't show up. If this is somehow a duplicate, I apologize.
Has the ADT repository been deleted or moved? I've tried entering the URL in Eclipse and it can't find it, and I tried just browsing to the page, and I get a 404 from google. I've tried both https and http with no success. Any help would be greatly appreciated! What should have been a 1 hour (max) activity (setting up Eclipse and the Android SDK on a new machine) is now dominating my day.
I also subscribe to the Android Discuss group. I clicked on a post in today's email update and got a message saying "Cannot find android- discuss ... There is no group named android-discuss". There were a couple of threads I was watching.
I've got an onTouchEvent boolean on a Surfaceview, I've got openGL objects drawn on the view and I'm wondering is there anyway to detect where on the screen the onTouch happened? e.g (x,y) co-ordinates.
I tried the 'unofficial' cupcake SDK and found that the hardware HOME button doesn't bring me back to the home screen anymore. Is this a conscious UI decision? What's the reason behind it? Also, long-press on the HOME button doesn't bring up the task manager anymore. So, if I am in the browser, I have to all the way close all the pages before I can go back to home screen?
Anyone know what happened to this title? I'm really looking forward to it but, looking around the web, people were saying it was pretty-much finished in June or July. Now it's September. In case you missed out on the videos: pixelbite - news
In Settings > About Phone > System Updates, it says "Android Update 1.5" at the top, and when I click download everything seems to go smooth, and it says "Requires a restart". So I power my phone down, power it back up, and go to System Updates, and it still says I need "Android Update 1.5". Is there a way to check if the update actually happened, or what should I do?
Is there any differences between M100S and M110S? My app uses camera component. codes are as follows. So I wonder if app is crashed because of the difference between the devices or my codes are wrong.Code...
