Samsung Behold 2 :: When Turned Phone Off / Try To Restart It Would Freeze

Dec 19, 2009

coming from a first gen behold . Im happy to have upgrade to android .The only problem i have had so far is when i turned the phone off and try to restart it would freeze and have the android logo replay but never get to the home screen. Had to force recover mode 3 times. I'm guessing some app that force the phone to stay awake might be causing this . Can some please tell me if this is the cause or is there something else wrong with my phone.

Delivered to me September 1st 2010

Battery Manufacturing Date - Not checked
Apps installed before shutoff experience:
Dictionary.com

WordUp
Google Voice

Barcode Scanner
Ninja Kaka - Fruit Dojo
Drop Block DEMO
Hella Umbrella Beta
PapiJump

1 Day/Night before I experienced the shutoff, the following were installed:
- Used my own wallpaper jpeg instead of one from the Captivate's stock wallpaper folder

I've had my phone for exactly 1 week, and after reading all the horror stories of people experiencing the random shut offs, I thought I was lucky up until now. I love this phone a lot despite the obvious GPS issues. Does anyone have any idea on what may be causing this? Hardware or Software issue?I would hate to exchange it for another with AT&T since I've become so attached to it.

General :: Android 2.1 Freezes When Turned On Restart?

Mar 25, 2014

Since 3 years I had upgraded my Android 2.1 Flytouch 10.1 Tablet into Flytouch 2.2. #3245 version, without any major problems.

My only problem was that I was not able to use Titanium back up and some other apps unless I was rooted, so after many attempts.I succeeded to root it and to be able to use it. Until the time I decided to upgrade my BusyBox to the latest version. After that I rebooted.my tablet with success but only for once because since then it freezes at start up.

I am developing a ToDo reminder type of app for android. on creation of a new reminder an alarm and vibrator scheduler is created with a toast. This works on intents and broadcasts and is pretty straight forward stuff with putextras using the reminder id from the db. My problem is, if some one restart the phone, i guess all the scheduled alarm and vibrator tasks for the reminder will be killed. Once the phone restart again how to recreate the scheduler tasks.

Samsung Moment :: Turned Phone Off And Back On Now Not Reboot

Jun 28, 2010

So my Samsung Moment was going pretty slow so I thought I'd reboot it to refresh it but now it just stays on the Samsung glowing sign. The screen will go dark as if to boot up but just ends up going back to the Samsung glowing letters. This phone is a mess! Why would they release something so unstable?

Samsung Captivate : Captivate Only Phone On AT&T That Can Officially Have Swype?

Jul 9, 2010

The Captivate (and Galaxy S in general) all come with Swype, right? But Swype isn't a market app right now, right? As in, the HTC Aria can't get it unless it is rooted/worked around (not too hard, but a hassle)

So is the Captivate the only phone on AT&T that can officially have swype? We all know that Apple won't let Swype in their market

Is swype coming to the official android market? is it already there? (I don't have an android, but I want one)

HTC Droid Eris :: My 3G Is Turned Off Even Though I Haven't Turned It Off

Jan 5, 2010

This is my first post and it comes with some questions:

First and foremost at random times my 3G is turned off even though I haven't turned it off...go into the setting and it says its still on. Only way to turn it back on is to turn it off and then turn it back on? Any ideas just a problem with the phone maybe. Didn't know if anyone has encountered this problem

Second is there and application that I can use that will let me select what things will startup with a reset of the phone? Also is there an easy way to reset the phone without a battery pull? I just like to do this when Unistalling apps and installing apps...always seems faster after downloading or Unistalling after I do this.

Samsung Behold 2 : Programs Are Using Battery Without Being Turned On

Apr 27, 2010

I didn't have this situation until Twix and now, DOTS. When I check "Battery use", I see a bunch of programs in there, without turning them on or using them like Android OS, Media, Swype, Market, Dialer ... In Twiz, even when wifi is on, it won't actually connect unless I manually connect it and it disconnects when the screen is automatically turned off. I had great battery life.

I drained the battery and recharged before I flashed ODIN. I pretty much did everything the same way as the previous times I flashed a new rom. I drained the battery again but that didn't seem to help.

I installed Advanced Task Killer. A while after I kill selected apps (a long list), the apps tend to turn on on their own. I had unchecked "Background data" but that didn't help either. Wifi connects unless I literally turn it off. (That wasn't the case.)

Is there a few check marks that I miss?

Not sure if my problem is similar to this.

Android :: Possible To Restart Phone With SDK Or NDK?

May 11, 2010

Is it possible to programmatically restart the phone from a application (service) running on top of the Dalvik VM?If the SDK does not provide this functionality, then how about using the NDK and calling some functions provided by the kernel? I know this option is not preferred (not stable enough libs), but if it's the only option, I'll have to consider that as well.

Samsung Moment :: Unplug Charger - Turned Off Ring

Jul 29, 2010

Just got the 2.1 update for my Moment. Have a problem. I leave my phone on at night on the charger. I get up way earlier then my wife. Now after the update - my text notification ringer goes off when I plug in and unplug the charger. I tried turning off the "Notification Ringtone" - and that worked to kill the charger plug/unplug sound - but it also turned off the ring when I get an incoming text. That just will not work - turning that on and off all the time. Is there a way to just disable the sound when the charger is plugged/unplugged?

Samsung Epic 4G :: How To Keep DRM Protected Content Storage Turned Off?

Nov 27, 2010

I did a test I saw on another forum about turning off the DRM Protected Content Storage (OmaDrmConfigService) to make the battery life longer, and it makes mine last tons longer. When this is on my battery will drain to 10-15% overnight, just sleeping. With this 1 thing off, my battery was at 77% when I got up this morning. WTFudge is this thing, and how do I make it stay off because it turns itself back on after I turn on the phone? How do I automatically turn off other running services I don't need running all of the time? Like eBay and Tango and Craigslist etc.?

Sep 5, 2010

Okay, So I have my brightness set to max, I have power saving mode turned OFF, yet when the battery starts to die down, the phone INSISTS on automatically setting the brightness to a lower setting.Anyone else notice this, or is it just my phone? Again I have brightness set to max, power saving off yet when my battery level gets really low, the darn phone insists that the brightness should be less, and decreases it for me automatically.
