General :: In KitKat WiFi And GPS Doesn't Turn Off Sometimes

Mar 13, 2014

Once you have turned on GPS, when you turn it off later, sometimes it doesn't really turn-off even if the quick setting tile says it is turned off.

[EXAMPLE]

I turned GPS on, opened Tinder, used it for few minutes, closed it and turned off GPS, removed Tinder from recent apps.

Next night, I see Tinder is the top battery consumer, with 1 day 9 hours of GPS use. GPS shows up as ON the entire time in the battery graph; while GPS tile is "off" in quick settings as well as locations services is also set to off.

[SCREENSHOTS]

I had seen exactly similar GPS hogging from Facebook and Maps too.

This exact same thing happens with Wi-Fi too. I had turned off Wi-Fi at night before going to sleep. But after returning from work the next day, I see in the battery graph that the Wi-Fi was on for the entire 17+ hours. And it still showed as "Off" in Quick settings tile and Wi-Fi settings page. The Wi-Fi definitely wasn't ON since as soon as I turned it on via QuickSetting tile, I got a flood of notifications. But there was considerable amount of battery drain, which is unusual when everything is off. Makes me think that the Wi-Fi was in fact ON. So, when I had turned Wi-Fi off at night, the phone only disconnected from the hotspot but still remained on.

[DEVICES]

Nexus 5 - running stock 4.4.2 with Xposed and latest Linaro.
Galaxy Nexus - running AOKP 4.4.2 nightly with Franco; no xposed.

[BUG TRACKER]
Issue #64998 - The GPS bug was already reported by someone else in the Android project bug tracker. But it has low priority there and doesn't look like it will get addressed anytime soon.

Android :: Cellular-WiFi Switch

Feb 3, 2010

I'm doing a research on Cellular-WiFi switch and finding any mechanism to handle cellular hand off.As far as i've found,an http request is routed through WiFi network if connected even gprs/cellular connection is present.

My queries are:

1)Does this switch happens automatically ? If yes,which part of framework or code does that?

2)Does the http request drop in such situation due to cellular hand off ? Is there any way to handle such hand off ?

3)Does gprs cellular connection reconnects automatically when WiFi gets disconnected ?

4)Which type of alerts or notifications normally user gets in such situations ?

Yours feedback and inputs will be of great help for me in this activity.

General :: Permanently Disable Cellular Data / Voice Modem As Well Leaving WiFi Enabled

Feb 12, 2014

Radio Shack had this phone on sale for $14 cash this weekend, I picked up a couple of them to setup to use for WiFi text/music/YouTube phones for my kids.

I have rooted them and now just want to get rid of the Virgin Mobile automatic profile update that attempts to happen when I power on the phone. If possible, I would like to permanently disable the cellular data/voice modem as well leaving WiFi enabled. What app I should disable/ remove through titanium backup to do this?

I have absolutely no intention of ever activating these phones for traditional cell service. They will strictly be used as WiFi android devices. Basically a cheapo alternative to an iPod.

I have set the phone for airplane mode and then enabled WiFi to prevent them from making calls, this is a reasonable solution but they could turn on the cell radio and start trying to activate, although they wouldn't get far as they don't have a way to provide payment anyway.

Problem is their mother isn't the brightest and when they are away at mom's, I would like to be able to text them and not be on the phone with her troubleshooting them constantly.

Jelly Bean :: Android 4.3 - Restricted Profiles - Disable WiFi Entirely / Turn Off WiFi

Sep 24, 2013

I don't own an Android 4.3 tablet yet but I need to know the following things.I wanted to restrict my device so that a user is unable to change any settings (in particular turn on/off WiFi) and disable all applications except one.How strict is the restriction?

If I disable all apps except one what will the restricted user be able to do?

In an ideal scenario I'd like the restricted user to do only 3 things:

a) turn the tablet on/off

b) turn the application of my choosing on/off

c) all other options would be disabled

d) the restricted user should NOT see any data of the administrator

KitKat 4.4 :: TURN-OFF Downloaded Apps Like The Built In Ones?

I just discovered within application manager that there's a 'TURN-OFF' button to easily disable any of the apps which came with the phone.

Is there something similar for ones that I downloaded?

I'd like to try disabling apps without uninstalling them for the purpose of trouble-shooting wake-ups.

KitKat 4.4 :: Excruciatingly Slow Browsing On WiFi But Not 3G

Mar 20, 2014

my Moto G is so slow when i try to browse the internet in chrome or dolphin if i'm connected to any WiFi. when i search with Google the initial results come up fast, but then when i click on the page if it is not already cached the blue bar will freeze for 10 seconds, load a little bit, then freeze again for another 10 seconds, then eventually load the page. this doesn't happen at all on 3G. I've done speed tests and they don't seem to be effected by the slow speed on wifi. I've tried disabling wifi optimization, location services, and battery saver, but nothing works.

KitKat 4.4 :: WiFi Not Connecting On Galaxy S4 After Upgrade

Mar 28, 2014

After upgrading my Samsung Galaxy S4 to 4.4.2 I haven't been able to connect to any WiFi networks. When I pull down the notification bar and tap the WiFi icon to turn the WiFi on it turns a dull green and stays like that for a few seconds, then goes back to being the colour before I tapped it. Other times, it turns the usual green but it doesn't connect to any WiFi networks and says "not in range" to those WiFi networks that I connected to before the update. It shows it scanning but nothing comes up. Another member of my family has the Samsung Galaxy S4 and they haven't updated there phone to 4.4.2 yet and they haven't got this problem.

I have no clue how to sort this out. I've turned my phone off and waited a bit then turned it back on many times, to no avail.

KitKat 4.4 :: Google Apps Not Working Over WiFi

Mar 28, 2014

I recently swapped my iPhone 3GS for a Moto G and immediately upgraded it to KitKat. Since then I've been facing a variety of problems. Firstly, my camera would intermittently stop working and give the 'Camera Error' message. This was subsequently fixed by Moto when they released an update.

But another problem has been everpresent right from the start. Over my home WiFi, a number of apps requiring Google Sign in fail to work! These are :

1. Play Store
2. Facebook
3. YouTube
4. Google Search (Bing search works just fine!)

These work just fine when i switch off my WiFi and turn to 3G.

I have done a lot of research and tried a number of supposed fixes that worked for other people. They include :

1. Checking the Date & Time on my device
2. Switching to Airplane mode and back
3. Deleting my Google Account & Signing in again
4. Clearing cache, force stop etc

None of these seem to work. But at times, all of a sudden they start working. But it's completely random cause if I try the next day or something, they revert back to their non-functional state.

My WiFi at home runs on Google DNS servers. I can access these websites through my laptop.

General :: Rooted Nexus 7 WiFi (2012) Won't Boot After Attempted Kitkat 4.4 Update

Nov 27, 2013

I am trying to get a friends Nexus 7 up and running. I recently rooted it and installed the custom recovery using my Mac with this guide while the tablet was on 4.3. All was well, but then my friend was given the option to install the 4.4 Kitkat update. After the update, the tablet has been unable to boot - it simply hangs at the startup animation. I am able to enter the recovery boot loader, and enter options to restore from a .zip, however I have no way of accessing the tablet's memory from my computer to put the original operating system back on it- although I think it could be done from Terminal, I am not well versed in command prompts.

Am I missing something here, or does y5 not turn off your wifi and just log it on when you tell it to?

General :: WiFi Won't Turn On?

Aug 15, 2013

I have a problem with my nexus 7. A couple of days ago the wifi connection simply stopped working. I just could not turn it on. The wifi icon did not get blue, like it should when it's turned on, and it wouldnt even search for available networks.

So, i thought this might be caused by some bug or software problem and decided to do a factory reset on my nexus 7. The problem is, that did not solve the wifi problem and now i can't even use my device anymore, as it requires a connection for setup.

Does that mean that the problem is caused by hardware malfunction? I'm not very experienced with all the android hacking or installing a CFW, or whatever.
