KitKat 4.4 :: Nexus 4 - Reverting Back To 4.3?

Dec 2, 2013

Some issues are correctable through doing a factory wipe. Other issues can be corrected through reloading the image from Google's own factory image repository. However, some things (in particular the battery drain issue) seems to be an issue within 4.4 itself, and the only solution I've found has been to revert from 4.4 to 4.3.

So I'm posting this thread and asking the more knowledgeable users here on AndroidForums to post clear, concise directions for acquiring and flashing these devices back to the Google "factory image".

The reason I'm asking for the community to pitch in is that the instructions I've seen are kind of scattered, are not necessarily up to date, and they can and do vary depending on whether you're doing this with Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8, or with Mac OS X, or with Linux.

I was able to re-flash my Nexus 4 in Lion back to 4.3, but I had to do editing of bash shell scripts and even then had to issue the execution of the appropriate shell script from the exact right spot or else it couldn't find the command, or couldn't execute the command. The directions on Google's site were incomplete, and the ones I found on various message boards seemed more like an author's "best guess" than authoritative "you can trust that this will work" workflows.

Nexus :: OTA Updates - Reverting Back And Apps After Rooting

Mar 17, 2010

I'm contemplating if I should root my Nexus One mainly because I really want that extra performance boost. However I have a few questions. First will I still receive the OTA updates Google pushes out? And secondly, will I be able to revert back to stock android OS after rooting. And lastly, do all the Google apps work (mainly the Google GPS Navigation) without problems?

General :: Nexus 7 - How To Roll Back From Kitkat To Jelly Bean

Feb 1, 2014

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?

KitKat 4.4 :: Nexus 7 - Back Up Device Before Rooting Or Installing Custom ROM?

May 7, 2014

I want to install Cyanogenmod and root my Nexus 7 2013, but I don't know what I should do to backup.

I previously tried to root and install CM on my Motorola Atrix HD on AT&T and successfully rooted it, unlocked the bootloader, and installed Clockwork Mod. I made sure to click backup and proceeded to delete the version of Android on the device and install Cyanogenmod. Cyanogenmod did not successfully install and I wanted to restore my device back to it the backup I made. It said that it did it successfully, but the device gets stuck on the AT&T logo when booting up and doesn't go past that.

I don't want to have to go through the same trouble with my Nexus 7 not being able to restore back to a backup in case something goes wrong. I'm using the Nexus Root Toolkit on my PC and will probably use the Cyanogenmod installer for installing CM11 (if there are any drawbacks to using the installer). What should I use to backup my device and how would I restore it back to stock if something goes wrong? And if I have a bricked device, how can I flash it back to stock?

Motorola Droid :: Reverting Back To Stock

Apr 30, 2010

So I just purchased an incredible (couldn't resist lol).. And now I am trying to sell my droid on ebay (if anyone is interested let me know!), but whenever I used RomManager to revert back to stock image. I get an error and it fails. I have already ported my number over to my incredible, so I can only use wifi. So what other way is there to go back to stock so I can wipe the device and sell it. Or is there some other way that I am not thinking of? Something on the phone, like stock image I can flash through clockwork recovery and be done? (if so anyone have a link?)

Motorola Droid :: Text Keeps Reverting Back An Old Number / Fix It

Nov 20, 2009

For most contacts I have *82 in front of the number which will unblock my number because I have my caller ID blocked by default through Verizon. Because text messages will not work with *82 in front of the number I store the same contact without it and use that for texting.

My Droid when texting will sometimes replace the current number I am using with the *82 version even if I have deleted the *82 number for that contact. The only way I know this has happened is when the person I am texting says they did not received it or if I am texting someone who is also on Verizon network and the text delivery status will stay at pending.

Android Webview - After Changing Scale To 1.5 It Reverting Back?

Apr 26, 2014

I wrote a sample application which displays some test message using webview .The Application has two activities, one activity simply contains a button, when user click on this button , it launch another activity which display the test message on a webview .

I have set setInitialScale() of webview as 150, Now the issue is like, Normally webvbiew displays the content with the scale size 150 (as I set ) but some times it displays the contents with a scale greater than 150.

I overrided the onScaleChanged() function in webViewClient.

In normal case before drawing the content on webview I am getting onScaleChanged() callback ,with the value oldscale as 2 and new scale as 1.5. When issue occurs , I am getting two onScaleChanged() callbacks before drawing the content!!! ,at first I get the onScalechange() callback with oldscale as 2 and new scale as 1.5 , after that getting another onScaleChanged() callback with oldscale as 1.5 and new scale as 2.0 and hence it draws the webview with the scale 2.0 irrespective of setInitialScale() I have given in my application.

This issue happens only in the case if I set setInitialScale() to a value less than device's default webview scale. As per my understanding ,Every device has its own default Scale for webview based on their display property like .075 for ldpi and 1.5 for hdpi etc )

In my device defaultScale for webview is 2, and I set the setInitialScale() as 1.5(150)

normaly webview reset the scale from 2 to 1.5 before draw ( That is from defult to new value ) and it works fine
But some time after changing the scale to 1.5 it reverting back to 2. and issue occurs

public class webActivity extends Activity {
@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
[Code].....

Found this [URL] .... and I'm wondering if it would be alright to follow that guide and hopefully get the phone to boot again?

KitKat 4.4 :: Nexus 4 Messaging App

Nov 24, 2013

My Nexus 4 was just upgraded to the android Kit Kat version via OTA. However, I am having problems with the stock messaging app. No matter what app I choose as the default messaging app Textra or ChompSMS, the pop-up notification for the stock messaging app always shows up, despite the fact that I have already turned the notification off on the stock messaging app. This means I am getting two pop-ups each time I get a text message.

KitKat 4.4 :: Nexus 4 - Suddenly Can't Open WAV And MP3

Feb 19, 2014

I'm suddenly having trouble opening up audio attachments/files. Running a Nexus 4 - OS 4.4.2. I get my work voicemail as e-mail attachments in .wav format. Up until today I was able to just tap on the attachment, and it would download and start playing. Now it says "No app can open this attachment for viewing". If I go into the Downloads and try to open it up, it says, "Can't open file". Same if I try and open up a mp3 that's in Downloads. However, opening a PDF or Excel file from Downloads or straight from email works just fine. If I go into the music player I can open up the .wav and .mp3 files from Downloads just fine.

I tried restarting a few times, and also tried clearing the app cache with no luck. What should I try next?

KitKat 4.4 :: How To Take Screenshots While Connecting Nexus 7 And PC Via USB

Dec 13, 2013

my environments:
Nexus 7 (2013) - Android 4.4.2 - Language Japanese
PC - Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

While connecting Nexus 7 and PC (Windows) via USB cable, after taking a screenshot on Nexus 7 (using Power + VolumeDown), a png-file of Screenshot is saved, but its file-size is zero (of course, png graphics is not shown).

Once USB cable is unplugged, the png-file gets correct file-size, and png graphics is visible.

I hope taking screenshots while connecting Nexus and PC.

I clicked yes and now cannot access the app. I see it under settings/app/downloaded/ or all, but can't launch it. How do access it after its hidden? I have read threads on this subject but it seems like it does not apply to my phone seeing how I do not have a menu key to click once in the apps drawer.

KitKat 4.4 :: Nexus 5 - Gmail Sync Will Not Stay On

Apr 7, 2014

I've gone into settings on my Nexus 5, and everything is checked right. Auto sync is on under data usage, and under the Google account. I've tried deleting and re-adding them etc.

Been googling this all day and none of the answers I've found have worked.

Every time I open Gmail, at the top it says "account sync is turned off"

How do I get it to stay on? Or is this a glitch I'm just gonna have to get used to/wait for a fix.
