So this morning, the alarm goes off on my Droid2 and everything is fine. About an hour later the screen froze and would not unlock or slide. It was absolutely frozen. I was using the stock charger last night. I took it by a Verizon store and the rep pulled the battery and then it started back up with no problem. The big problem is he took ATK (free pre installed version) and killed all the apps and proceeded to tell me how I had to do this. I said "dude, their was nothing running last night and I have not even downloaded any new apps, etc..." I just got the phone on Friday of last week. I really am not a fan of ATK and he tried to tell me if I don't do this, the phone will freeze.
I CANNOT download the zip file(my computer says invalid) whats up any one got a clue do i need to tell my computer its ok or do i need a FREE program in my computer to help me out confused...I started already on my D1 to manually download takn a little while though throught the D1 to dnld the files only on 1 gotta go to 7
On one of my screens I have various apps in 4 different folders so I can access them quicker. Yesterday for no reason, I noticed that I had 2 of every app in each folder I had on my screen! This happened on its own! Then this morning, I noticed that all of my folders are now completely EMPTY with no apps in them! What in the world is going on with my phone?! I still have the apps on my phone but something is causing them to double up in my folders and/or delete them from the folders!
Can you make a folder within the Apps screen that you pull up? I woild like for instance make a folder called Games and put all the games in this folder to clean up the App Screen a bit. I downloaded App Organizer, but it only seems to put a filder on 1 of the 3 front screens?
I have had my Droid for almost a month now and i love it,,, but there are a couple of really annoying things that it does, and i was wondering if it was just me, or if anyone else has these problems too...
I will hit the unlock button on the top and start to do my pattern, and all the sudden, it says that i lifted my finger... and takes two tries out....
I will hit the unlock button and start my pattern and the screen will shut off like there is no activity and i will have to hit the unlock button again, and start over.
Oh and how about this, tried both handcent and stock messaging app, i regularly have periods of long delay from both receiving and sending text messages, i will be sending one text and get a text sending overload message also.... then i will have periods of sending and receiving the exact same text 10-15 times in a row.... this happens all of the time and its extremely annoying....
I was trying to copy a tracking number from an email in gmail and didn't find a way to do it.There must be a way to select text and I was just pressing the holding the screen like an idiot. Can somebody please shine some light on the subject?
I am using the ES File Explorer on my HTC One M8, but it doesn't allow me to copy pictures on my SD card. Root Explorer also not. Is it because of Kitkat? Are there any other file browsers that allow copying stuff to the SD card?
I'm getting a weird problem. I'm transferring files from my computer to my droid. Now I think it may be my computer that is causing the main issue here. The transfer will just freeze in the middle of something and I have to reboot my computer to get a USB mount option back on my phone.
Last time though the freeze got so bad that I couldn't get my phone to actually power off. So I had to remove the battery while it was powered on. Does this sound like a phone issue that I should bring back to verizon? Or more a computer issue.
I just set my phone down on my desk only to have that evil red eye staring back at me. Phone rebooted itself somehow. I most certainly did not slam it down or anything.....just set it there gently like always. Also, I noticed that when my X is on the charger, every now and then it will freeze up and reboot itself.
This was reported in the other thread about X8 Issues, but thought to start a new one to gather feedback from users. It's about the ''black screen'' freezing issue encountered by some users. I have had this several times since owning the phone for a few weeks, so it is a recurring issue. Problem: The phone hangs or appears to be shut down or become unresponsive suddenly. Pressing the hardware buttons doesn't help as the phone doesn't react at all. Solution: Take out cover and battery and restart.Observations: From my own observations, it's not actually a shutdown but a major freezing/hanging. Sometimes when it happens, I can still see vague shades of the display at an angle. After leaving the phone for a while in the pocket, the phone comes back to normal again. Not sure if this is true for all users with this problem. Anyway, gathering more feedback to see how prevalent the problem is, to evaluate whether I should take it to the SE service centre, or whether doing so will help at all.
I started rooting on SPRecovery with Nandroid and all was lovely, then I decided to start using ROM Manager. After the first time I got the repeating M start up. I then flashed it back to stock and got all of my stuff back. My only problem is that now the Android Home crashes anytime it starts, though Launcher Pro is fine and working awesomely. I also can't bring up recovery, it shows the phone with the gigantic "!" over it.
Yesterday I rooted my phone and flashed BB 0.7.5 and I've had my phone completely freeze up, can't receive calls, buttons wont respond and I have to pull my battery to reboot the phone. I'm not sure what exactly is causing it, and it has only happened twice so far (both today). I wanted to ask if anyone else has had this happen. I have a nandroid backup of right before I flashed the ROM, should I roll back and try again or use a different ROM?
I have stock 2.2 D1 and just this morning my phone will stay on for about 5 minutes then freeze up and restart. Stay on for 5 minutes then restart again. Battery is full...when the screen goes into standby is when it seems to have problems. Just started happening around 10:00am today. Anyone else having issues?
So about three weeks ago I switched from ATT iPhone to Verizon DX.Couldn't have been happier, I've been an ATT network apologist for years, and I am eating my words with gusto.Also, absolutely love the android. Now, the first DX they gave me would freeze on the motorola screen when I would turn it off (wait a couple few minutes) and turn it back on. I would have to do a battery pull and wait at least an hour to put the battery back in and turn it on in order to get it to boot. Brought it in, got a new one. This one starts up just fine every time, but I'm having two noticeable problems so far.
1 - It is waaaay slower than the first DX I had. I was so impressed/happy with the responsiveness of that first phone. Absolutely no lag anywhere, no lag on the unlock bar, no lag opening apps, scrolling through contacts, nothing. Now I'm getting very choppy lag on the unlock, contacts, apps, facebook and googlemaps will stop responding, etc...
2 - When I try to open the battery manager usage statistics, it gives me an error "The application Settings (process com.android.settings) has stopped unexpectedly.
I have looked through some other lag threads on here, and have tried turning off animations, changing to performance mode, neither having any real effect.My settings and apps are identical to the first phone (neither rooted by the way), what happened here?
My SD card on my droid x went bad so the verizon store gave me a new one but it seems they formatted it for a blackberry hence I see blackberry folders in there Can someone tell me the file/folder structure for Android 2.2? Once I format and clean it up, what are the directories I should be creating? If there's a link that describes it, that would even be better..
I rooted my phone (droid x), and then installed bootstrap + Rom Manager. I downloaded REVOlution, and then I got to recovery, I clicked reboot, and it always FREEZES at the M sign. Then I looked up other forum posts on this site, and so I ended up deleting cache, going to factory reset etc... and I still can't get back to my screen.
So, I've been having issues with my Droid X (this is my second, my first bricked during the 2.2 upgrade.) It's fairly reproducible, and I want to know if it's just me or if everyone's experiencing this. It generally happens when I have the phone in the car dock, It's connected to my stereo for phone and A2DP via bluetooth and music is playing, though my mom (who just got a droid X) called me yesterday to say it was happening when she was listening to music on her way to New York and she was pretty frustrated. Basically, what it boils down to is music playback starts getting choppy, the phone gets warmer than average running temperature (though not horribly hot) and eventually music playback stops. While double-tapping the home button still opens that 'say a command' voice prompt, the screen takes forever to draw and the phone runs sluggish as hell. Other than that, the screen is unresponsive, the home button doesn't actually do anything, and the only way to get the phone out of this state is a battery pull. This particularly sucks because I've gotten used to using my phone as my in-car music player AND for navigation so since it is so frequently going down in the middle of driving places I can't really rely on it anymore. It may just be my device, too. When it's plugged into some computers in my house, the bottom half of the touch screen becomes unresponsive. When I brought it to the Verizon store to get it replaced, the incompetent rep basically determined that since I'm running LauncherPro, my device must be rooted and refused to honor my warranty. I'm getting pretty fed up with Verizon. I'm on my 8th replacement phone from the first droid I got (3 droid erises, 3 motorola droids, 2 droid X's) and not a single one has worked as advertised.
