Motorola Droid :: Instability After Installing Flash
Sep 15, 2010
I just installed Flash the other day on top of my BB 0.4V and 1.1LV Chevy1 kernel. I've noticed some extreme unstableness since I did that and was wondering if anyone else is experiencing something similar. I have to reboot at least twice a day now. I get constant FC's for various programs including launcher (ADW).
Sometimes it get's stuck in this weird loop where I can't get back to the home screen. I can hit back all day long and it switches between the dialer and the browser. During this time the home button is non-responsive. I usually have to reboot but sometimes going to standby (tap the power button) and coming back out it resolves itself as well. I've also had major headaches with screen rotation going haywire.
I'm about a hairs width away from dropping back to my last nandroid backup and forgetting flash ever existed if it's going to be this crappy. I seems to be not ready for release or maybe rushed to release (Adobe rushing releases? Never! haha).
Has anyone else observed similar behavior since installing flash? It doesn't matter what ROM, I'm just looking for any kind of pattern that I can point back at Adobe (not a fan - can you tell?).
I just got the upgrade to my system that is supposed to allow me to install Flash from the market. After it downloads, the installation fails with the message: "Package file was not signed correctly." I see comments from other Droid users that look as if theirs installed (although I am not certain that they are Motorola Droids).
Installed flash 10.1 today and since then...won't boot up at times, screen orientation won't switch, lock-ups, pages hang, multiple reboots etc. How do I uninstall this? I've looked on the phone and tried to research online without any luck so I have turned to to the real experts. Help! Thanks in advance.
I am trying to figure out if one it is possible for an SD card to cause my phone to become unstable (like spontenously rebooting, heating up, etc), i think the answer is yes as I have tried using the phone for a few days with and without the card and it does indeed seem more stable without the card but its less clear about if its the card or whats on the card. I tried formatting the card and thought at first that it was more stable but then it seemed to start acting up again (I can't sit and watch it all day and sometimes its not obvious that it has restarted, sometimes it just shuts down). I have also tried different versions of RR, tinkered with neartrom (not long enough to be sure though) but still stability issues.
Is there a way to see If my card is someway corrupted? or If the phone is just not liking this card or any cards? A friend let me use their card for awhile and my phone was still acting up (rebooting, freezing, overheating). I prefer to to figure out exactly what the problem is before I fork out the money for a new card; it seems illogical that a sdcard in general should make a phone act up like this but I am running out of ideas (going out and getting a new phone would be even more painful than getting a new sdcard so I am really hoping to figure this out as it seems to run ok when no card is inserted).
btw, I the card is a sandisk ultra 64gb microsdxc card, its worked for like 2 years (I stored music and backups on it mainly, most the r/w stuff was from daily podcasts).
All the new features sites said Flash 10 was part of Driod 2.2. 2.2 was pushed to my phone overnight and I installed it. However when I go to the Adobe Flash showcase, it says I don't have flash installed. So I search the market place and do not see flash as a download. Is this just something that will come later? I really don't read up on Driod all the time so I don't know all the news, just a regular user.
I have gotten both the Flash Player and Flash Lite APK's, and I have been trying to install them on the Droid. Flash Player refuses to install on stock 2.1. Flash Lite installs, but after install I can not connect to the internet (Nothing connects, Skype, market, random app, browser.)
So I wanted to know if anyone wanted to do some testing with them, to see if you can get them running on the ROM you are running. Maybe we will be able to make fun of iDevices earlier, because Droid Does what iDont
I was gonna install a new ROM, and I forgot to flash the recovery image, after i installed the ROM, all my old stuff were there, and when I tried to use Recovery Flash To Back Up, it said BACK UP Failed could not run command.
Anyone ever had this happen? Downloaded an update after the 2.1 upgrade and I sync'd my contacts with FB. It then deleted all of my contacts.So I deleted Facebook, re-stored all my contacts and reloaded Facebook. However, now it gets as far as installing and it never stops. It just stays on Installing.However, the FB app works fine on the phone itself.Is this a Market glitch? Is there anyway I can purge it from out of my downloads section?
I like to keep several direct dial and direct message shortcuts on my home screen, but after installing a new ROM (in this case BB 0.8), the shortcuts are gone. It's not the biggest deal, but if I could find a way to preserve them for easy restoration when I update, that'd be great.
I'm getting my Droid X next Friday, coming from a rooted Droid. I was thinking about rooting the DX before actually activating it by doing the Android screen corner taps; mainly because I want to install Titanium Backup using ADB, so that I can go ahead and restore all of my apps without having to wait for a Market sync, and so that I don't have to go back into each app and set them up. My question (well... more like a couple questions) is installing an app using ADB all that safe?--I read somewhere it was kind of sketchy. And would it even be safe to outright bypass activation/setup to root and do this? Thanks!
I rooted my Droid using the SM Updater and am currently running sholes mod 2.05 but with everything going on between that and then I've been watching Pete's bugless beast ROM. I've decided that I would like to switch but I don't wanna unroot and then re-root my phone to do that. What I need to do to switch over?
I've been fighting this issue for the majority of the afternoon.My phone was 1-step rooted yesterday (about 4 hours after I got it from Fed Ex), but when I first had issues, I backed everything up with Titanium Backup, unrooted, and did a factory restore.The issue persisted, so I called Verizon, who pushed me over to Motorola. They don't seem to have any idea what the problem is, and unfortunately, no one around here has any in stock, so replacement isn't a viable option at the moment.So, I'm left with a couple questions:
1) Is anyone else having issues with this OTA update
2) While I didn't remove anything out of the ordinary (just what was recommended, things like the NFS, Amazon's MP3, etc.), and it appears everything has been brought back by the factory reset, could the fact it was rooted be stopping this?
3) Is there any way to manually load the update? I'm coming from a Blackberry Bold, where I was quite comfortable running leaked beta ROMs...I don't know of any way to do it any way other than OTA for this though.
im installing android adk just for rooting and rom purposes is there any specific directions for installing this..i found a guide but it really doesnt go into detail about the install process of this just says you need it
I rooted and tried to flash the new 6.0 Cyanogen to my Droid and it got stuck on the Cyanogen boot screen. Can anyone please tell me what I might be doing wrong? I must be missing a step somewhere I'm just not sure where.
I finally decided to take the challenges of rooting my phone and so far I have more than happy with the decision. I am having a few problems where I would like your help.
Just FYI: I downloaded the 928BG theme/ROM
1) Now when I connect my phone to computer via USB, it only lets me connect vias the Charge mode...I can't access the USB storage or windows media sync or PC modes...
2) I have weather bug elite pre-installed on my phone and it gives me the current temp in black font in the taskbar. Since I downloaded the new theme, the taskbar is now black and I can't see the weather updates. I tried to switch the weather bug font to white, however when I do, the app fails to load.
3) I downloaded Titanium backup and have tried to remove some of the bloatware. I have been successful with many of the apps, however I can't remove kindle at all. If I delete the app, it still shows in application drawer.
4) I installed the Free version of ROM manager app. My question is do I have to pay for the full version to install the other ROMS such as APEX or can I install those ROMS any other ways.
I rooted my phone for the first time tonight straight from the 2.2 leak to root. I downloaded all the appropriate backup apps and ROM Manager. I used ROM manager to download FlyX 0.1 Final, and selected make a backup of existing ROM and clear data/cache when the download completed. After hitting okay, the phone does not reboot into any special mode, it just simply does a normal reboot. All my settings are still fine, and the root's intact; I just don't have FlyX.
I have rooted, updated to 2.2 and updated to FlyX Final I have wipe the cache in bootstraps recovery, Do i need to mount the sd card? Says installation is complete, and when i restart the phone i am stuck at the big Moto M I have to flash back to 2.1 everytime I am gettin fed up with this, can someone enlighten me of as to what i am doing wrong?
I would love to be running this theme with flyx but if you cant run a custom theme with a custom rom please let me know i am a noob at this, learning rather quickly but still need help at times.
I tried to update my phone yesterday while it was rooted at the time and it did not install. I un rooted my phone this morning and tried to install the update again and it still would not install. any help would be appreciated.
Over the course of the past week or so I have been downloading the .apk files of some programs I wanted and didn't want to forget about. How do I go about loading these from my PC to the Droid? My Computer isn't showing a mobile device or anything.
I switched back to Ultimate Droid 1.0.0 but not through nandroid. Just a start over. So for some reason I can install everything back except Angry Birds. I know that is really bad luck. Any app but angry birds. So I have tried all the ways I can think of. Through the market, downloaded from getjar and install through Astro, and I have put it in the system application folder through root explorer. Also tried installing through root explorer. And Angry Birds lite won't install either.
I followed this guide From stock 2.0.1 >to> Sholes.info ROM..Step by Step. No ADB involved. Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum Going good till I got to this step 52. Choose 'Choose ROM from SD card' it says E: No tar archives found. What do I do now?
