Motorola Droid X :: Phone Not Activated After Rooted Back To 2.1
Aug 23, 2010
So I switched to the 2.2 leak and decided to do the .sbf method to get 2.1 back because I thought 2.2 was a bit buggy for my tastes. Unfortunately, when I had gotten 2.1 back on my phone, I could not activate. It simply said it cannot do it. I tried switching back (again) to 2.2, same problem. Tried manual user activation via ##7762726, still nothing.
Just as the title says, I am wondering if the GPS on the Droid will be able to connect and work without the phone being activated on Verizon. I would have an offline GPS app that has all the maps downloaded so I wouldn't need a 3G connection. Would the phone still be able to pick up the satellites and my position even if m not on Verizon?
I have a Droid that is rooted and I am to send it back after my replacement comes in the mail tomorrow.. I cannot access the boot recovery screen and the power button that puts the device to sleep has some sort of software glitch that requirers to press the power button numerous times to wake up the screen.. Otherwise the the device works fine.. I have managed to remove the SU .apk.. The only other changes I made while it has been rooted is to remove VVM, MP3 app and cooperate calander which are still hidden.. What do you think will be the outcome of this debaucle?
I have a phone rooted and upgraded to 2.2. It was like that when I bought. Some programs are uninstalled in my phone. But I want them back. And there are some new programs that I don't need. So what can I do? And how can I do that? Does a factory reset reinstall the uninstalled stock applications?
Howdy gang: Back in the 2.0.1 days, I rooted my droid, using the "root your droid.com" guide. I never did anything with it, never loaded any Roms (planed on it, just never got around to it) When 2.1 came out, I did the OTA. After the OTA, I still have the "super user" ninja icon. Now I want to jump on the 2.2 bandwagon and I need root. But do I still have root? how can I tell?
I have rooted my phone and am using the wireless tethering and can use other rooted apps. But when I try to use the adb shell and the su command, I am getting Permission Denied. Anybody know what the hell is happening? I am rooted using the Droid 2 method with the 2.2 OTA updae.
I was hearing things the first time this happened, but before I answered an incoming call on my Evo I heard a voice on the other end while my phone was ringing. Well today I heard it again so I decided to check it out, so I called myself on my girlfriends phone and lo and behold I could hear myself on my Evo while it was ringing before I even touched the slide to unlock.
I'm trying to root my Eris before I activate with Verizon again. (I had to go to a back-up phone last month). I can't get the SDK or EMA program to work. following all the directions. It will not "see" my phone.
This is my first android device and i'm loving it... but one thing that irks me is the use, or lack thereof, of the back button.
As I am navigating menus and options in the Settings, I cannot simply go back one menu using the back key. For example, if I go to Settings->Battery Manager->Battery Profile Options and want to go back to the Settings screen, I cannot.
Pushing the back button does nothing and I can only go back to the Settings menu by going Home, then re-entering.
Another quirk regarding the back button is when reading emails. Using a regular email account such as Hotmail, I cannot simply read an email and go back to the inbox using the button.
On the original phone, I went back to stock using the "live without fear" .sbf file, to 2.01. I had attempted to also let it do the 2.1 update but it continually gets stuck on the M and won't proceed past that, so I again put the 2.01 sbf file on, and let the phone get to the "touch the droid to begin" screen.The phone has the original recovery on it, the box and explanation mark, no SPRecovery or clockwork.Can Verizon tell at this point that the phone was previously routed and charge me full price for the replacement?
My droids battery life has been miserable and overall the phone has been acting pretty flaky lately. I recently went back to rooted 2.0.1 after running the cyanagen rom. I re enabled OTA and want to just try stock 2.1 for now and see if it fixes my problems before I take it into verizon. After I enabled OTA's it downloaded the file and asked if I wanted to install the update which I said yes to. Phone shut down and restarted and ended up on the Clockwork Recovery screen. I said to reboot and the phone just comes back up in a rooted 2.0.1 version still. It says its running 2.0.1 and the system is up to date.Whats the easiest way to get to 2.1 and unroot? Help please!
I was wondering if I can easily switch from 2.0.1 and Humancyborgs 2.1 rom on my Droid. My droid is rooted and I have run the 2.1 rom but I switched back to 2.0.1 because of some issues with the rom. I am hoping it is just a matter of swapping out the Nandroid files like I did when I returned to 2.0.1. I am missing the cool features of 2.1!
Can someone give me the low down on benefits of rooting a phone?What can be done to the phone when rooted that cant be when locked? Is it only the ability of using different versions of android not designed around the phone?
Alright, I'm new using android phones and I know there a tons of unnecessary apps running on the background. Coming from a BB user, I used to shrink my OS so I could use only what I needed. I found out that a lot of of preinstalled stuff on my phone that is always running on the background, skype mobile, amazon crapware, my verizon, and so much more. I searched how to remove all that stuff and I found out that I need to root my phone, I rooted my phone, and now I want to know what do I need to know in order to use adb, or access the phone using the terminal.
Has anyone used Good for Enterprise on a rooted phone? My company's now mandating we use this to access our corporate email, and they mentioned we couldn't use it with rooted phones. Does anyone know what'll happen if I try to install Good on a rooted phone? Or, could I re-root after I install Good?Also, if I have to unroot, will Titanium Backup still maintain the frozen state of my Verizon bloatware? Otherwise I should be able to just use Root Explorer and rename the .apk files, right?
I recently rooted my motorola droid and installed bugless beast froyo 2.2 and every time I try to use Superuser Permissions or Setcpu, it says that Superuser permissions is not responding and makes me do a force close, or send a report. Is there any way to fix this?
I ended up rooting to BB0.2 lastnight, did not have a chance to download 0.3, I have not installed any kernals yet, but just wondering why my camera and power buttons no longer work? do I need to script them, and what is the point of typing in scripts anyways, it just seems like more work to do rather than pushing a button to power off the phone. Also, if there was a problem with instalation, how do I revert the phone back to stock and start over, stock meaning non-rooted
After a day of successfully using cyanogen, my phone does not start any more. I have had it charging for a while and nothing happens as I hold the power button. Nothing on screen, no LED, the only LED that is active is the charging white one on the side. I'm so lost and have no idea what to do. Rooted with easy root, if it matters.
Just wondering what apps you guys have uninstalled fromm your rooted droids... I'm really getting annoyed by some of these apps like google talk storage, alarm clock, and calender launching themselves when they have no business at all running.And even regular apps do this which baffles me why people make apps that launch themselves I wish we had user acccount control I bet someone will make this type of app for rooted devices one day.
The first one I'm looking for is how to customize the notification bar and menu once the phone is rooted. The second is a tutorial on how to replace the recovery console on the to nandroid etc. Which recovery console is the best?
