I rooted my phone today using darkatz recovery, went smooth.. zero problems (Also did nandroid backup). My question is, is there a way to remove the darkatz recovery image and revert to stock, basically remove all traces of Rooting (If i ever want to get firmware update from operator).
Just called O2 about my Galaxy, It keeps shutting down and I cannot power up without first removing and replacing the battery, I's just over 1 month old and they deny any knowledge of this happening at all, They want me to send it for repair and have the priviledge of waiting up to 14 days to get it returned whilst I merrily pay a contract fee to them!
why after ive made a call to someone and hung up, my phone will dial another of my contacts, this happeneds quite a lot and sometimes I dont notice it has happened, not good at 3am when im calling someone who has work in the morning.
Dozens of unknown names and numbers have appeared in my Samsung Captivate's contacts list. The numbers appear to have area codes from my state but with names like Joe Blow Repairman, they must be a fake. My contacts list is sync'ed with Google Gmail but I don't see these numbers on my contacts list when I log into Gmail. Is this a known virus from an App I installed? What should I do?
i know you all gona say that i should have used forum search which actually i did and i still cant find the answer of how to root (most resent or best methods). today i decided to go the way most of you went and root my galaxy so i could enjoy some of the features or customise the devise for it to be either faster or better somehow (particularly im interested in fixing HW acceleration of openGL). but my main problem is still that ADB doesnt show my device in the devices list after adb_devices command... i think ive tried everything: reinstalling drivers and NPS, SDK 1.5 r1 putting in debbuging, restarting phone even using USBdeview soft to uninstall all android and samsung drivers and try to make it work but still nothing... all day wasted, many forums read, downloaded KAM187s drivers and still nothing im on H8 firmware how to make adb recognise my phone and list it) plus i want some info on how to push this openGL fix on my phone after i root it (if ever) by the way tried on Windows 7 and XP sorry for making a new thread but i think im not the only one whose phone is not listed by adb as i read it on other forums.
The problem is when I create a contact # I later on come to check on that contact # and I get many repeats of that same # in the form of a text and a cell #. Is there an option to disable it because it pisses me off.
My Samsung Galaxy mini is restarting frequently . Is it normal ?
It generally restarts when i launch some apps like Cam scanner , What's app , Offline dictionary .It doesn't restart when i open the app . In what's app it restarts during conversations .Its not restarting all the time , usually it works OK .
I have a lot of issues with my device. It hangs frequently and the WiFi signal is weak and drops after a few minutes no matter what. I have the latest firmware so that isn't the problem. Many apps seem to run in the background even though I didn't start them and when I exit them the right way with the back button they're still running. What to do? I like the phone but it doesn't seem very stable so far.
I'm an experienced C++/Java dev who has been truly enjoying that past two days of getting neck deep into the Android SDK. I can foresee a lot of sleepless nights ahead Now, being arrogant due to experience (lol) I basically wrote a hello world Activity, got it to work and promptly decided to write an out of process service with accompanying client for project #2. Android is so well thought out (if not exactly documented although that's an 'over time' issue inmho) that I had basically implented everything but callbacks into the client before realizing (and feeling like a total idiot) that there's a very nice example called RemoteService (lol @ me - again) Basically, this validated everything I'd been doing, although I did notice that because my client is in its own project and namespace and my service is in another project and namespace (but the same Eclipse workspace) that I had to have the service entry in my service's manifest AND my client's manifest (that one took me a while to figure out) in order to bind on the service. Anyhow, everything's great, I am starting to love on Android (figuratively) but I've run into <BRITISH-NESS>a bit of a sticky wicket, eh, wot?</BRITISH-NESS>.
When my client Activity binds on my service (which is running in its own process) and calls the equivalent of 'registerCallback', the interface is added perfectly to the RemoteCallbackList object and I can immediately (right on the next line of code) use the interface to send a notification to the client. Now, my problem is that when my main service thread tries to pull the interface out of the RemoteCallbackList via the broadcast methods, the RemoteCallbackList is always 'empty' - it returns 0 from beginBroadcast. After double checking ensure that I AM actually adding it to the list (because I've been a collossal idiot before) and that I am getting success back from 'register', I immediately think it's a threading issue, so: I add logging code to the service in key places to log what the thread id is repeatedly, and I think "uh, I think I need to use a handler of some sort to make the call back in the thread that handled the registration" and to double check I call beginBroadcast right after 'register' and find that it always returns back the correct number of callback interfaces. So it VERY much appears to be a threading issue (to me) so now I'm a bit stuck I've written a handler so that my main service thread can request the correct thread to actually call 'beginBroadcast' and then thought 'how is it going to know what thread that is...?' and instead am now thinking I need to pass, via a handler or something, the incoming interface from the thread that runs when the client calls the equivalent of 'registerCallback' to my main service thread. What part of the proper paradigm am I missing? BTW, as an example of the thread IDs, my main service thread is #1, the runnable I use for tasks in the main service thread shows an ID of #1, the message handler I was thinking I could use, shows an ID of #1, but the thread ID I get in my code in the service that runs when the user registers their callback is #7.
If I plan to notify clients when the service notices something it thinks they need to know, do I need to notify (somehow) the clients via the thread with ID #7 or do I need to pass the interface I get when the user registers their callback from thread #7 to thread #1 and call 'register' on the RemoteCallbackList from thread #1? Sorry for the verbosity but I figured more is better than less. Again, everything works great except this one little part.
Got my phone today. Problem is I went to the verizon store, had them transfer contacts from my blackberry and when I go to contacts, it is empty other than the phone default numbers. If I go to "All contacts" the list is populated with my regular phone numbers +600 facebook friends i do not care about. How can I get it so I only have the numbers I want?
Just got my Incredible and it is rocking. Damn this thing is fast! I notice that when I try to compose an sms message, the contact search list contains ALL of my contacts (phone + Google). This is super annoying, as I literally have thousands of Google contacts and some people have numerous accounts, so it's incredibly difficult to sort through and is honestly the first thing I have seen the phone start to choke on. The 'People' widget has a 'View' setting that allows me to limit by just phone contacts, but I can't seem to find any sort of filter in the search when I'm composing a message. I can type each name individually and select, but having a big list would be nice. Again, I'd like to be able to select message recipients from a list containing only phone contacts.
I'm new to the android OS and I got a Hero two days ago. Is there anyway to get all my facebook numbers into my people list? I have the facebook phonebook link on my homescreen with the my contacts with their numbers but they are not in my people list so i cant directly send a text from the facebook phonebook I can only call, so is there anyway to merge/import to my people list on the phone.
Is there a way in the contact list (People Icon) to designate individuals as ICE (In Case of Emergency) numbers? What I have done so far is when I entered all my contacts, who ever I wanted designated as an ICE contact, I just put a comment in the Notes field. Anyone else have another way of doing this?
The Samsung i7500 Galaxy is, except the support from Samsung itself, a great Android smartphone with a very good (the best?) price for value. It's with 11,9mm the second slimmest Android phone after Nexus One with 11,5mm (right?) and has unlike the HTC phones a flash light and build in storage of 8GB. On most sites the Galaxy is (one of) the cheapest Android phones, I wonder if it's because Samsung is cheaper or HTC/Motorola more expensive by itself?
I personally would compare the i7500 with the HTC Hero, although in my opinion the i7500 still has a much better price for value.
Is it even possible to define if and which Android phone is a low, middle, or high-end smartphone? Sure, it also depends for what purposes you bought and use your phone, but I still wonder were the i7500 would be if 1=low and 10=high end Android phone, and if there even is a number 10? I also think that the D-Pad is a big plus and not a minus in comparison to the scroll ball from HTC.
I am still in the process of learning and customizing this phone so there may be a famous app that takes care of this but I did a search and found nothing. I am not a big fan of how the contact list shows friends from facebook/gmail/Phone. I only want it to show contacts that I have personally added on my phone. Is there a way I can arrange this. I have it to where it remembers phone contacts only when I hit contacts but as soon as restart, it goes right back to all contacts. It also comes up when I try to text someone or in the contact section of the dialer. I just dont like this. I don't mind that they are there, persay, but I don't want it to be default all the time. Is there a way to change this?
My address book is all over the place! I am coming from a BB curve 3300, i had my contact list with numbers and emails within same field per person. When the address book was transfered over to my Hero, i received 3 to 4 different fields per person! How can i fix tihs without having to manually go in and delete 3 of the 4 fields and enter email, cell numbers to one of the contact?
there I am new to this. I would like to find out some information in regards to and update for the samsung galaxy I7500.I live in Australia and it seems the phone cant be updated. Is this true. I have tried on many times to plug my phone into my computer via pc studio.
