LG Ally :: Daylight Savings - Option To Switch Clock Manually?
Oct 31, 2010
I woke up this morning to find that my Ally has the wrong time in the notification bar, as well as one of the widgets that i have for an alarm which shows when the next alarm comes up. however, the correct time shows in the weather widget. as it is Sunday morning, i looked up daylight savings and noticed that the clocks in Europe get set back an hour today. could my phone somehow be in European mode or something? maybe an android 2.1 glitch, since it came out after the last fall switch if I recall and therefore may not have been tested for a problem like this. I can't find an option to switch the clock manually anywhere, is there a way to fix this or do i just wait a week for the US daylight savings to click in?
I live in the central time zone. This morning I woke up and my phone decided to adjust for daylight savings time by 2 hours instead of 1. I checked the time and date settings to find that the date settings were checked to "automatic". Somehow the phone decided I was in the Mountain time zone instead of central. why/how that would happen? If I uncheck the automatic, and manually change my time zone it works fine.
it looks like its an Android bug, but my alarm & my calendar alerts are not working correctly, as well as CalWidget. My Google Cal & the Cal on the phone are correct. I had to reboot to get the time updated to what it should be today.
I like to read on my phone at night in my bed, so even though I am holding the phone sideways I do not want the orientation to change. In phones I had in the past you can assign a button to change the orientation. Is this possible on the hero?
I placed pictures on my phone via my computer, but now can't remove them. I don't get a delete option, I can see them when I have it plugged into my computer. does it have something to do with my SD card? suggestions please, short of my formating the card (assuming the images are on my card?).
Have been attempting to use [mm] themes from around the web to no avail. I would like to remove the clock from my notification bar and have the rest of the text be white. Im using the rooted v8 rom from rom manager.
I recently received an LG optimus f3 with android 4.1.2.
After activating the phone, it displayed the correct date and time for my time zone, so I didn't mess around with settings to reset the time, as I would with any other device.
However, I've noticed that the time changes to exactly an hour ahead, before changing itself back several minutes later.
I went to settings > date and time, but 24 hour time and selecting a date format are the only options listed.
I prefer to leave mobile data off when I am at home and can use the wi-fi. Is it necessary to have mobile data turned on, so the phone can receive the time from a cell tower, or is there a way I can set an internal clock?
Thought some others might be interested in doing this if they haven't already. First off, you need root access to do this, and I am not responsible for any damage you may do to your device.
1. Download any font to your SD card. Make sure it is a TrueType font (most are) but double check anyway. Check out dafont.com for a huge selection of fonts. 2. Rename this font to Clockopia. Make sure the "C" is capitalized. 3. Now, open up Root Explorer (or any other file manager with root access) and navigate to system/fonts/. 4. Long click on Clockopia.ttf and copy it. 5. Paste it on your SD Card somewhere and rename it to something like Clockopia-Original. This way you always have a backup. 6. Now, long-click and copy your new downloaded Clockopia. Don't paste it anywhere yet. 7. Navigate back to system/fonts/ and press the "Mount R/W" button. 8. Long click on Clockopia.ttf and press "Delete" 9. Paste the new Clockopia in its place. 10. On the new Clockopia.ttf, long click and press "permissions". Check all the boxes under "Read" and the user box under "Write".
I dropped the Dual Clock widget on my home screen then deleted it from the home screen. When I go to Settings/Applications/Running Applications the updater for that widget is active. I have not found a way to permanently get rid of the Dual CLock update service upon reboot. I know how to manually stop it from running but don't want to have to do that every time my phone starts up. What a pain. Since it's not an app it cannot be deleted.
I have two EVO's, and I'm on the absolutely unlimited everything plan for both phones, which means that on a monthly basis Now, if I moved down to unlimited everything plan except for calls to landlines, I could save a lot. As I understand that plan, all calls to any cell phone are unlimited, but I would have a minutes cap on land line calls during the day on weekdays. So, can I use some kind of App to make land line calls during the day on weekdays and avoid the charge to my limited land line minutes? I would want an App that allows calls to be received and placed. I think there is an App for that, but it requires a new number to be registered?
So when I save an image from Firefox it saves to a downloads folder on my sd card yet the normal internet app saves it to the phone (gallery). I can only view those pictures saved from Firefox through firefox. How do I get them to save to my phone/gallery?
The Engadget review said it was pretty much unusable when sunny outside. Many of the reviews mention the poor performance of screen outside. I really do not have issue with this if this is only referring to direct sunlight. I can always turn so that the screen is in shadow. I have looked for videos of phone operation outside but I have not found any. I need to be able to use phone outside and in car with no issues. Could people that have Incredible comment on how it performs outdoors when it is sunny?
I live in Arizona, and we don't observe DST. On my computer, all my Google calendar appointments from tomorrow on have the correct time and my calendar time zone is set to Arizona. On my device, everything tomorrow onward has been shifted ahead one hour, as if DST should be affecting my appointments.
What will Date.getTime() returns in a region with Daylight Saving Time enabled? Does this function returns a DST time or not? I call Date.getTime() in a place with DST (such as U.S.), and convert it to a local time in China (no DST), I get a wrong time (one hour ahead of local time in China). How can I fixed this problem?Maybe I didn't tell tings clearly, but we don't use DST in China... I don't understand DST very well.
I'm a Verizon user in the US Pacific time zone (GMT-8) and ever since daylight saving ended yesterday, I've had a glitch on my incoming message non-Verizon timestamps...they come in as GMT. I just received one at 1:42pm and it says 5:42am. This has been happening all day yesterday and today on messages sent from non-Verizon customers but the ones from my Verizon-using wife are just fine. I can't find any way to fix it in the software itself.
I'm looking for a way to trigger repeated actions. I'd like the user to be able to choose the intervals at which these actions will be executed. One should be able to choose from intervals like "Every Day", "Every Month", and "Every Year". The setRepeating(int, long, long, PendingIntent) method of the android.app.AlarmManager class only supports a long value for choosing the interval between the execution of the pending intent. My problem now is, that I can not just compute the number of milliseconds that "fit into one day", since not all days have the same length (daylight saving). This is also a problem for the interval type "year" (leap years).
I had a quick look at the android.os.Handler class, but as I understood the documentation I'd need to keep a service thread running for my actions to be executed at some future time. I don't consider that a good option for my needs ;-) Is there anything in the API I could configure with a cron expression or the like? I was also thinking about scheduling an alarm with the AlarmManager for a single execution at a given date/time and then having a receiver that does the rescheduling according to a cron expression attached to the intent. But I don't know if I just got something completely wrong here and I'm reinventing the wheel with that approach
I wake up this morning groggy and otherwise just tired so I check my Hero to see what time it is, 7 am. Now I want to see when my first class is so i go into my calendar to see what I had lined up for the day and what do I find? All my times were moved back an hour!! Anybody else find this strange?
I'm the new owner of an X10 and I'm, so far ;-), really happy about it. I still have an issue that prevent me to throw away my old Palm agenda. I have a Google Calendar that is synchronised to both my Palm and now mu X10. I notice a strange "one hour shift" issue with my X10: every appointment after the Daylight Saving Time is shifted from one hour on the X10. I figure that this is related to the way the X10 handle the daylight saving: the automatic setting for the time zone is GMT+02:00:HMG+2:00 whereas Google calendar says correctly that Paris is on the GMt+01:00 with a one hour shift due to summer time. Is there a way to fix this issue that prevent me from using the agenda?
I noticed many of the links around here are on low speed servers, Personally I fount it annoying. So I collected a whole bunch of links for various things and put them on my private server. I was able to Download at about 6MB/s.

My LG Ally is stuck at the "VELOCITY" boot screen and is stuck in a loop. I had Velocity 0.3 flashed yesterday and I decided to re-flash today. I have tried wiping data/files/cache/dalvik cache. I'm stuck and I don't know what to do. Also I never did a Nandroid backup (because I'm slow).
I've already flashed the prl and have the phone programmed on cricket but it seems like the data settings are locked. Im trying to change them to fully flash the lg ally and I also need to figure out how to change the mms settings.
I figured out how to full flash the LG Ally 740 to cricket but 3 out of every 5 phones I flash do not save the NV settings. When I go to manual programming (##program740 send) then select DATA. The MIP & DUN MIP settings always revert back to the default email@example.com settings. I've changed them in LGNPST,CDMA Workshop & QPST but still reverts back to VZW. It's rooted and tried several different ROM's to fix the problem. Could it be the kernel? If anyone can help, please let me know.
