So I was getting rid of Bing and I was really tired and accidentally deleted the I500_BingSearchAndroid_07152010.apk instead of renaming it. Is there any way or restoring this short of restoring from an older Nandroid backup I have?
Forgive me if this has been answered already, I didn't really know how to search for this... But today I tried to do a Nandroid Backup and when I did it said "error: Run 'nandroid-mobile.sh' via adb!" But I've previously been able to just click Nandroid Backup and it will backup my phone..
I have done several Nandroid backups during Installation of Froyo Nightly build. complete clean phone, phone with main settings adjusted, phone with applications, etc.
All well and fine, but, unorganized as I am, I don't know anymore which is which. I believe that, If I can see a lsit of the files in each .img file, I could figure it out. How do I look into those files?
The answer to that question, at least for the data.img and system.img files, is a small tool called unyaffs. A compiled binary for windows of this file is available at http://www.megaupload.com/?d=XMGZSYOM
Put the unyaffs.exe and the file.img files in a new folder, open up a terminal window (windows-run-cmd), navigate to the folder where the files are and type: unyaffs file.img. All the files of the image are than extracted to the folder you are in.
coming from a BB Curve, you can email yourself ring tones or email them to a friend from your device. I tried to email myself a ring tone on my Fascinate and it comes through, gives you the option to preview it, but no option to save it to the sd card. Does anyone know how to do this? I ask because I have friends that swap ring tones around and it is now impossible to do this for me.
"How to" I find said that if I select a contact, there should be a box to check for "send straight to voicemail". As far as I can discover, this does not seem to exist on my fascinate. Is there something I might have done that would make this disappear? Or is it something the fascinate doesn't have for some reason?
I'm from Norther NJ. This is my first smartphone, and I love it. I love electronics and technology, from computers to theater systems. video games to car audio. And now I've found something new in android smartphones. So now that you know a little about me, I rooted my phone, and I installed Rom Manager, I flashed ClockworkMod Recovery twice for the fascinate, and now I want to backup my current rom.
Total newbie with basic questions about backing up contacts using VW Backup Assistant. I had all my contacts copied over to my new Fascinate and all my Gmail contacts info also got synched up. I just wanted the contacts with phone numbers to show up in my Contacts list and so selected the option that displays Contacts this way.
Now the backup service seems to only back up 4 contacts (#BAL, #DATA, #MIN, #PMT) and none of my actual contacts. how to get all my contacts synched up with the online Backup Assistant?
My Issue: HTC Desire is stuck on boot-up screen with Green HTC logo forever.
How it happened: I tried flashing a script using ROM Manager that was supposed to correct some local language settings, over my current rom.
Phone state before action: Worked beautifully using Modaco R8 RC1 ROM. Phone is of course rooted.
Why I can't solve it myself: Well, this is my first serious issue (well, I hope it's not serious, actually!) with phone, which i've had for about a week , so I'm relatively a n00b.
-- I can access Clockworkmod recovery. However, under NANDROID RESTORE there are no files. I have no idea why, because I DID a full nandroid backup before that last install. I have a copy of all the IMG files of the last working setup on my windows machine hard drive, and my assumption now is that maybe I accidentally moved the files to the hard drive after i did that backup, instead of copying them.
1) Can I somehow restore the phone to a working state without the nandroid backup, using some other function of the CW Mod recovery?
2) Can I somehow connect the phone via USB to the computer and get it to read the Micro SD card so I could maybe move the IMG files I have back to SD Card (using some mounting options)?
3) Anything else I could try?
If nothing else, please just calm me down if you can and let me know the phone is fixable and not bricked because I can access recovery?! That would at least help me go through the night...
last note: Before I flashed the zip, ROM Manager indicated my CW Mod version is 184.108.40.206. Within the recovery itself, it says the version is only 220.127.116.11. Don't know why that is , and if it is important.
Does the Nandroid backup get contacts I've manually input into the phone too? Whats the best way to save my contacts? When I get Fresh .02, I lost all my damn contacts, I just got them all put back in but I want to do Fresh 0.3.
OK so i rooted my GSM hero and i forgot to do a nandroid backup before i loaded my custom ROM. i want to go back to the stock ROM. how do i go about doing that? i currently have the phone booted up into recovery mode?
I have titanium backup, but what is nandroid and if i need to re-install both what do each do in the way of backups? main reason i ask is because my phone went into a boot-loop again today. its ok now but if i need to flash the rom to get it working another time id like to have a backup of passwords and settings for email and facebook accounts to save the hassle of putting in again.
I had to get a replacement phone. New phone came with 2.2, so obviously I need to root it. But my question is, can I make a nan backup of my old phone, and once my new phone is rooted restore to my old phones backup?
I have heard that a nandroid backup is saved in seperate folders depending on your phones serial number. I'm not sure how true that is. Someone said that I would have to make a nan backup on the new phone so it creates a seperate folder, and then copy my old backup into the new folder, and restore.
I have CWM Touch Recovery v18.104.22.168. A couple of hours ago, I made a NANDroid backup before flashin a new ROM. When I attempted to use NANDroid backup manager to restore my apps and data, the app said I had no apps in the backup. Upon reviewing the files CWM created, I discovered that it created several data.ext4.tar files. Is there a way to combine these so I can use the Nandroid backup manager to restore my apps. I've managed to restore call logs, text messages and wifi data but my apps are important too.
I do realize I could probably use CWM for restoring but I want to restore specific apps and not the data. (I.e the recently updated hotmail app) Plus, restoring with CWM flashes data that is incompatible with the new ROM.
So I've rooted my phone but I want to install a custom ROM. I've read that I need (and I definitely want) to create a nandroid backup. The only problem is I have no idea how. I have ROM Manager installed. I read I need to Flash ClockworkMod Recovery so I did that. However, when I try to reboot into recovery either through Rom Manager or just holding volume down and power I get nothing. Does anyone have a clear and detailed guide on what to do? I'm not dead set on using Rom Manager I was just reading that it'd be easier.
So a quick question that I have been unable to find the answer to, does nandroid backup photos as well? If not, where can I find them on the phones internal storage to copy to my pc? I am also using Titanium, does that backup photos?
I've just rooted my 3UK Hero using the Goldcard method, as I want the 2.1 sense ROM installed onto my phone. I've loaded the 1.5 software. I've rooted using instant root - I know this much has worked as I've been able to install the apps which require root access.
I'm sure I've been following the guide to the letter (otherwise I'd never have got this far with it). However, when I start up the phone in recovery mode, I don't get the option of backup/restore.
I turn the phone back on, by holding the home and power key. After the Hero logo, I get a triangle with a '!' in and underneath that, is a little picture of a phone. So I press Home and Power again and the Android system recovery utility screen appears. I get the following options:-
reboot system now [Home+Back] apply sdcard:update.zip [Alt+S] wipe data/factory reset [Alt+W]
At the bottom of the screen is the following message: E:Can't open /cache/recovery/command
I have achieved rooting of my sprint hero cdma phone, but can not get to nandroid backup. i attempted to recovery reboot and it freezes at the htc screen, multiple times. i did luckily backup everything from my sd card and my apps/data before i did anything so i can get back to basics at least with root. i have formatted my sd card, and replaced it with everything that was on there directly after rooting. i can do a speedboot and see the menu to do the backup option, but i get the same results.
This may be somewhat of a silly/dumb question.....but can I rename the Nandroid backup files that I have made doing backups before flashing ROMs? I would like to know which one is which and I don't want to rely on my memory to have to remember. If this has been answered before, I apologize. If someone could point me in the right direction this thread can be deleted if it is old news.
If you do a Nandroid backup, then save the file from your SD card... can you use that same file to do a Nandroid Restore on a new replacement Eris? Seems like that should work, but I just want to make sure it's not phone-dependent.
