I've tried using ADB to push bootanimation.zip to my phone. The file copies properly without error but doesn't take affect when I reboot. I also downloaded the free version of Boot Animation from the market. It too reports success but doesn't actually change the boot animation. Has anyone had any success changing their boot animation?
i bought two samsung galaxy s and both have their own individual issues mine has the issue of turning off by itself which i found previous post about but the other one which im posting about consistently changes the background back to the default bubble blue live wallpaper, would anyone know if this is a app issue or a hardware issue with the phone becuase i wanna make sure i go back and exchange it, if thats the issue, if its something that can be fixed then please give me the solution because i really dont wanna exchange it and setup the phone all over again for my girlfriend.
Can someone explain to me in simple terms how to change the icons on my dock? I assume I need to start with launcherpro.I have seen some interesting icons that were all words, but i have no idea how to get them on my phone.
I've had my Captivate synced to my work and school exchange server for about two months now. This morning, I had to change my work exchange password. However, on my phone....when I into Account Settings>Incoming Settings and try to change the password. I get "Two exchange accounts allowed". It seems it thinks I'm trying to setup a third account rather than change the password to the existing account.
How do I change the password? (I've thought about deleting the account....but my fear is that it will create another instance of calendar and contacts. which happened once before, also annoying...if anyone knows how to get rid of the old duplicated calendars.)
This is my 3rd week with my Captivate and the first week that I'm on call for work. We use a paging system that sends me texts when I get paged.Last nite, unfortunately, as I slept with the phone next to the bed, I kept hearing notification sounds when email came in, and had to check my phone to make sure I wasn't getting paged.Is there anyway to set the notification bar to only notify me when a text comes in? Or is there a way to shut off the sounds for email and other notification messages over nite?
I tried running some searches but couldn't find anything (probably because I don't really know the terminology for this...).
Anyhow I was wondering if there was a way to change out the universal 4 homescreen app/buttons. You know the Phone, Email, Browser, Applications buttons? The only thing I really wanted to change is that I would prefer my gmail app there instead of the native email for captivate.
Is the Captivate supposed to send sounds such as turn by turn through BT? When my jawbone is connected, it works fine for phone calls, but the sound for turn by turn comes out of the phone speaker...on the music player it also doesn't "see" my jawbone when asking to use BT..but it will see my Moto S9 headset...seems a little strange..
I have no sound! I've already taken out the battery & sim card. Still no sound...I need to hear incoming emails, calls and texts. Life is gonna be rough relying only on vibrate. Should I do a hard reset and go back to default settings? If so, will it affect any apps I've installed?
I recently put avi videos on my captivate and they play properly except that there is no sound. the audio codec is Lame mp3. I have tried using Vplayer but it is too laggy. any other solutions besides converting the videos? I try to avoid conversions as I do not want to have quality..
On my Captivate, sometimes when I boot up (turn on phone) it does not make any sound. I prefer it that way, but must have turned it "off" inadvertently. Not sure what I did - is it an app I downloaded maybe, or perhaps a certain keystroke?
I'm not sure if it's a bug or missing feature but I can't seem to play movies that are encoded in 5.1 sound. The Captivate will play high bitrate video fine and that is awesome, but it would be silly to expect someone to encode a movie in a high bitrate and only use a stereo track.
I woke up today to see that my phone was locked up. I removed the battery and let it reboot, it goes back to the lock screen I have, shows the time/cell status. And then it immediately locks up. I'm able to get it into recovery mode and I wiped the cache, but no dice. I don't want to reset the data because I have some important sms messages that I'd like to back up, but I can't access the data folder in recovery mode it seems.
Is there a way to backup the data folder in recovery mode? Or another way to get the phone to not freeze on startup? I'm assuming something just got corrupt. I am able to connect to it via ADB in recovery mode just fine, but can't pull my data directory or use the su commands (permission denied). Phone is stock, except I did root it.
I saw a sweet boot sequence posted on. I believe XDA or Android Central, but for the motorola droid X. I got the file, tried to locate a boot animtion file to replace the new boot animation with, and it isn't there. They have a samsung boot and samsung boot repeat. I renamed both of them to bkp files and placed the new boot animation.zip in there(what they did with the motorola). I couldn't get it to work. Anyone know how to get rid of the Galaxy S and replace with other boot animations?
I know some of you have been wanting to get rid of that annoying startup sound on your phone. Here's what you'll need....(some instructions copied from Maerlim to save time)
You'll need the Android SDK (guide to download and install is here) You'll need the USB drivers (Stickied post in this forum) You'll need root access (look for the Captivate Root thread by chaoscentral) You'll need Busybox (available on the market after you root the phone)
Connect USB to phone with USB Debugging ON Open a Windows Command prompt in the SDK install directory cd tools adb shell su cd etc ******************* I suggest backing up the file before deleting cp PowerOn.wav /sdcard/ ******************* rm PowerOn.wav exit exit
THAT'S IT! I renamed the Windows 7 logon .wav file to PowerOn.wav and copied it to the /etc directory on the phone played it on startup, so you should be able to put whatever you like in there!
If you want to copy a file there..... Open a Windows Command prompt in the SDK install directory cd tools adb push "the location and name of the file on your pc" /sdcard (example adb push %userprofile%DesktopPowerOn.wav /sdcard) adb shell su cp /sdcard/PowerOn.wav /etc exit exit
My phone will not make any sound at all. I have all the volumes turned up and nothing. Phones calls, movies, songs, text messages, no noise. I have even factory reset the phone much to my dismay. Anything I can do to fix this? I have had the phone 2 months and loved it, now I am thinking maybe I should have just went Iphone4.
Has anyone noticed a slight rattle sound at the top of the phone? I first noticed this when the volume was turned up on calls. But tapping on the back near the camera lens also produces the noise. Trying to decide if I need to exchange.
I never hear any of my notifications when they come. I have tried countless times to change my notification type and sound but it wont change. It shows in the settings that it has changed but when i get a notification, it is the default one even though i changed it in the settings...
