I am taking a trip to Asia starting tomorrow. I wanted to know, does the GPS on the droid actually work globally as the name implies? And even if it does work, without service in that region google maps will most likely not work for directions, however is there a way or an app that can download maps of the region for the GPS to work off of?
Installed the Snesoid and GameBoid on it but they are not working. I open up either application with a message 'No ROM loaded. Press Menu for more options.' I put my games in a folder called Roms. When I select the folder to load a game, it recognises that the games are on there but as soon as I choose a game it loads for a couple of seconds then the whole application closes returning me to my home screen on my phone. What's up with that? I want to play Mario Kart dammit! P.S Is there any way to stop the phone's time syncing with my PC time. It's doing my head in!
I am not sure to the exact answer to my question. Is it because the moto widgets are difference from the droid 1?We have almost the same phone. So why wouldn't 2.2 for droid 1 work? There has to be a better explanation than, it just doesn't.
I downloaded the gameboid app and i also got the bameboid bios bin. now it will load up and go to the gameboy screen. then it just stays there. how do i get games for it. i think they are called roms? where do i get them?
Is anyone here going to be downloading/using the Gameboid app? I would love to be able to use my phone as a GBA . Question for those of you who have used it though...a few people have reported not being able to receive texts after playing it for a little while...is this truly a problem? Also, could anyone post some detailed instructions on how to get it to work? I think I understand it, but could surely use some clarification.
Question concerning the gameboid app. What exactly is the difference between it and gameboid lite? It is just that you can save games in the paid app? I downloaded the rom for FF tactics advance and realized i couldn't save my progress, will this change if i spend the $4 on the paid version? Also are there any other perks to actually buying the application?
I am trying to download mp3 files from my file server onto my Droid. Everytime I try to download a song I get the error message Download Unsuccessful. I thought it was a problem with my server but all of my computers can download from it, and I just went and got my mom's Droid ERIS to test. It could successfully download mp3 files from the server. This is ridiculous, why wouldn't my Droid be able to download these files but the ERIS can? Is this a case of Droid DOESN'T?
I found a Pokemon Game that I wanted to play and learned that I can play it on my Droid X2. So I got Gameboid and created a folder that has BIOs and the Game I downloaded. Whenever I try to open the .gba game Gameboid just closes little bit after I click it. It is the right BIOs file and the Pokemon game is a custom/hacked game.
I am running KaosFroyo v37. I have Droid Wall installed and I've allowed Messeging and Handcent through. Also, I've turned on 3G. Anytime I try to download a MMS it fails. Even when I disable Droid Wall it fails.
when a video is played over http (progressive download), in some cases, the application stops the current http connection and continues the download using a new http request with a range header. closing the connection is the phone choice, not server. somebody knows in which cases the phone behaves this way?
Tasker does not seem to function unless I use the motorola control panel and turn on bluetooth, wifi, and gps. If I shut these off via the control panel then tasker does not turn them on at the appointed times and events.Which begs the question, is tasker REALLY turning them off? or are the icons just going away in the notification bar (because they still show as on in the control panel widget)Has anyone else noticed this issue?
Long time lurker, first time poster here. As a brand new andoid fan, I've learned a lot from everyone here and now I would love to get help for my problem. I have downloaded lots of apps, but now there seems to be a problem. When I click to download, nothing happens, and then an orange triangle appears with the words "download was unsuccessful, please try again." I have tried all of the suggestions out there, removing and replacing the battery and SIM card, turning Wifi off and back on, logging out of Google Talk (although I seem to be automatically logged back in w/out doing anything), using 2G, 3G and Wifi.
I swear I tried this at some point and it worked, but I checked with Motorola about whether or not the GPS receiver will work when the phone is in airplane mode. They say it doesn't.Can anyone confirm whether or not the GPS (not aGPS, just good old fashioned, slow to download datum and get a fix GPS) works when in airplane mode?I'm traveling overseas to Japan, and only want to use wifi and GPS, so I thought I'd just leave the phone in airplane mode the whole time, but I'm really going to need GPS working (I'm using Maverick Pro for offline maps). I'd go out and try it, but it's snowing and crappy, and I don't want to sit outside that long
I think downloading is disabled, but can't find it under settings/apps, so I can't find a way to enable it. Play store won't open. My browser does not have the menu button (square with three bars in it). I am using new Nexus 7 with Android 4.3.1.
I'm trying to determine whether or not my phone is defective, or if this is a current problem with the Cliq.
Of the apps I've downloaded, only a few of them have worked. Of those few that work, some don't work right. Has anyone had problems with these apps crashing on them, or just not working correctly?
- Nice Battery (see description at bottom of: My Ultimate CLIQ settings (so far)) - WeatherBug (kept showing the wrong location, crashed when trying to change location) - Snake - doesn't work just says its "paused" - RingDroid - crashes when I select the "Facebook Pop" button - Layar - screen is rotated 90 degrees at all times
There have been others, but usually I just uninstall them right after discovering it doesn't work right.
I have noticed much better download speeds since updating to the most recent 2.2 leak (same as the OTA) even though i dont have the new radio. i rarely (if ever) got above 1Mbps. now i've been hovering anywhere between 1.8 and 2.0. i'm very happy about this. before, i was around 600-800k. Where is everyone else? I'm curious about how speeds are in different parts of the country, and if you have before/after results.
I have an email with a link to a pdf file. When I click the link, its starts the download process, but then hangs at a white screen. I notice the first word in the web address is "secure", such as www.secure.anything.com. The same link opens flawlessly on a dinc, but won't open on an X. Is there some security setting that needs to be changed?
FISSION V1.2 can be found HERE. ________________________
Fission 2.0.1 Available to download for Droid X. Looks like a good one.
I do not take credit for this Rom only sharing the information. Great ROM. I keep trying Rubix and Apex and keep coming back.
Team Defuse for your hard work and great ROM.
PLEASE READ EVERYTHING ON THIS FRONT PAGE CAREFULLY BEFORE INSTALLING.
If you are coming from any ROM besides Fission then SBF before you install this.
If you are on Fission and did not SBF before you came to Fission then SBF too.
Do NOT clog thread with posts like "how can I find SBF" If you take 2 minutes to look around you will find it.
YOU WILL NEED TO DO THE COMPLETE INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS.
This ROM does NOT lose root. You must install root from market or check /sdcard/fission/addon for superuser.apk, bootstrap and terminal.
If you have the latest OTA update then I suggest you do not install this ROM in the case something goes wrong you will be stuck with a brick. You will not be able to SBF your phone YET. So the choice is up to you.
Fission 2.0.1 works on new and old kernel. Fission 2.0.1 works on new baseband or old.
DO NOT INSTALL ANY THEMES FOR THIS ROM UNLESS THEY ARE MADE FOR FISSION 2.0. THAT EVEN INCLUDES THEMES FOR FISSION < 2.0. Almost all apps are different and are Android 2.2.1 versions.
Themers please get in touch with me before you release your themes. I would like to test them first because a couple of old ones caused problems and I will work with you to get them right. Fission will only support themes that are made for Fission.

I'm new to the whole "android" experience; coming over from Sprint using a Palm Pre. Question: I have XM on my vehicle and I have unlimited internet usage on my Droid. If I download the XM radio app to my droid, is there a fee for usage for that app? I noticed it was not in the market.
Also, I've never purchased an app before in the market. Does that get billed to your phone account or can you have it directed to a credit card?
Im running BB .4 and I have been trouble downloading the one app that I actually have paid for. Decided to buy it last night and it froze on download so I cancled it and restarted it. It went from authorizing to downloading to Download unsuccessful.
