I tried to update my Motorola Milestone to 2.1 on the official way , using "Motorola Software Update" Everything went OK but now I have this error and I can not boot anymore : "bootloader 90.73 err:A5,69,35,00,27 milestone"
I have to mention , that I am in Belgium and I have a Milestone from Expansys.be, and the version was version 2.0 . The update software was telling me that is the operator is "United Kingdom"...kind of strange...
Do you have any idea how to un-brick my Milestone and after that howto upgrade to 2.1?
After upgraded to 2.0.1, the screen unlock always give me phone vibration. Does anyone know how to disable the energy-spending vibration from Setting? I could disable the 4 soft buttons vibration but I don't know how to disable this.As I remember, there is no such vibration in version 2.0.
I just got my Milestone (aka Droid in the US) and want to write a simple app to ulock the screen touching one of the soft buttons, ala Hero. I looked into the Android API and could not find a helpful one, could someone enlighten me?
since I own a Neo V which is locked, and the service menu in the phone says that the Bootloader cannot be unlocked. if I unlock my SIM lock(probably with TurboSIM, since thats the cheapest solution), would that enable me to unlock my bootloader, and start the real modifying of my phone?
i want to know if it's possible to root an Android without unlocking the bootloader. My problem is I don't want anything wiped off the phone. I'm trying to get past the lock screen, because I found this phone in the street, so I want to get the numbers in it to try and return it. I've heard you can bypass the lockscreen if it's rooted. It's a Samsung Galaxy S Mesmerize, (or Fascinate).
I successfully unlocked the bootloader on my xperia x8 via flashtool put on custom kernel nAa 14 and miniCM7 Yay.Everything is fine apart that I want to change network because they have much better deals etc.I went to the 3 network shop and tried to put in the Sim, it took it in loaded but wouldnt register with the network , in fact I tried last week when I was on stock kernel and gingerxperia and it asked for ''unlock code'', today it didn't ask for unlock code took it in but wont register.I guess there must be some sim lock or something.
Maybe it is unlocked but something to do with Radio pehaps nonetheless my current Network works fine.here's my S1 LOG if any good. after unlocking BL of course

[How-To] ROOT Your Nexus One without Unlocking the Bootloader. ALL ROM'S! - Google Nexus One Owners | Google Groups. Ok, I posted this on my Google Groups page where I was able to Tidy it up and update it easier. Sources credited and applied. I did this on 2 N1's. No wiping, no data loss, both T-Mobile with FRF91. No data loss, no wipes, no nothing. The only reason you will have to wipe or anything is if you want to put a custom recovery on it and a custom ROM.
I have a problem with my LG optimus 4XHD. I didn't like the 4.1.2 lg skinned android so i wanted to install a custom rom. I started by rooting my phone that worked but then i flashed clockworkmod recovery without unlocking the bootloader. Now i can't enter my recovery anymore but i can still boot into android. Now my question is: Can i still unlock the bootloader now without bricking my phone?
Does anyone have a list of differences between the Droid and Milestone?I have a Milestone but most of the information on the Web is about the Droid.My current concern is about the amount of user flash memory. All information relating to the Droid states that there is 256MB available for user apps, yet on my Milestone, it only shows 197MB available?
i'm new to Android, still have much to learn.I'm wondering if we can take the startup bootanimation and the sound droiiiiidd of Droid into the Milestone.The startup of Milestone is so plain. Not really impressive.I already asked, there are some suggestions that adb push and pull to attach these new things into the Milestone.It's just "really hard" to me.1 more thing, the operating system doesnt not recognize my phone.I'm using win 7, i did install the Android SDK, typed : adb , it said : Cant not find the device (The Milestone). <- Must be solved first.
Milestone Overclock consists of a kernel module for OMAP3 phones with Android to unlock any processor frequency/voltage combination and a companion graphical app to ease the configuration. The phone must be rooted so that the kernel module can be loaded. The module has an interface in /proc/overclock/* that allows enabling and disabling of overclock in runtime without rebooting. No flashing of custom roms or kernels is needed, since that is not even possible with the Milestone, Droid X and others.
I am using Motorola Milestone UK version with AT & T. G Mail and Yahoo etc work fine. Data plan also work perfect wih At&T 2G. AT&T 3 G can not use with Milestone because 3 G band of AT & T is not supoerted by Milestone.
However, real problem is that when I call anybody, he always finds my voice breaks on Milestone. When I switch to speaker they find my voice perfect. I can hear their voice clearly. Any body has same problem.
Secondly, I would like to dowload "Car Home" app which is available with Droid. It is not available in Market place. When I try to see how it is intsalled in my friend's droid, it shows 0 KB. Does this app is part of Android for Verizon. When I dock the phone in Car dock, as I dont have Car home app so phone does not pop up Navigation window which is part of Car Home. I can use Google Map manually. This is not big problem.
My first Droid had problems with basic applications such as the Messaging and Phone apps resetting, so I exchanged it. Everything seemed great with the new phone, until I woke up one morning to see a screen stating that too many incorrect patterns had been attempted, and I should reset the phone by entering my Google account information. However, upon entering my information, I immediately received a message "Invalid username or password." There was no apparent attempt to even validate the information. Anyhow, I returned to the Verizon store and after the representative researched for half an hour or so, he decided to factory reset the phone. Now, this would not have been a problem, except that I purposely entered an incorrect pattern five times afterwards, to get to the "Forgot pattern" screen, and as I had suspected, it refused to accept my information. I was wondering whether this would be valid grounds to exchange my phone once again. I'm not content with having to completely erase everything on my device each time my phone gets into somebody else's hands.
I upgraded to 2.2 yesterday and download was quick (<5 min) and install was equally quick.
When it rebooted to the new system it required me to establish a security code that comes on when you unlock the phone. I want to disable this function- but in the setting menu the choice to disable is there- but not able to be selected to be modified? Am I just missing something?
BTW: seems like a smart unlock as it only ask for your password if it has slept for a while (which makes me believe there is a setting somewhere that modulates the length of time after sleep that this is activated).
I notice that on random occasions,I'd have an extremely hard time unlocking my phone.When pulling the unlock bar on the lock screen (stock),there are times when my finger doesn't register.I'd do it for a few times until it finally works.Anyway,I had this problem with the Incredible when trying to unlock that screen (HTC EVO 4G and Droid Incredible suffering from unresponsive screen issues -- Engadget)
Is there any way to turn off the short vibration that occurs when you unlock the Droid from the lock screen? I could have sworn that when i first used the phone it was not like that. I already have haptic feedback turned off for the virtual keypad.
trying to grt my driod into bootloader so i can down grade and root but cant even get phone into bootloader mode tried powering up while holding d-pad up didnt work, tried powering up holding camera and volume down didnt work dont know what else to try..
I am trying to root my Droid but everytime I hold power and up on dpad it just gets stuck on a black screen. I can tell it is trying to go to the bootloader but it just doesn't go. Do I need to hold the power button while holding the dpad up? I need to know because I dropped my phone in some water a few weeks ago and it screwed my power/sleep button up a little bit.Sorry this question may be such a cluster but I'm just trying to get some tips or information on what to do.
