2.1 Update :: Reverse The Upgrade

Nov 7, 2010

I was informed of the new android update and the perks mentioned seemed pretty impressive. Upon installing the new update I regretted it instantly; the phone is slower, the layout is ugly and choppy unlike the sleek and smooth previous layout and the backup and restore is abysmal, all of my contacts are registered in the messaging (which also looks awful and is terribly confusing) but not in my contacts section. Is there anyway to reverse the upgrade, because I seriously dislike the new one. It is awful to put it bluntly.

Sprint HTC Hero : Can't Upgrade To 1.56.651.2 - Firmware Update Always Reported No Update Available

Dec 2, 2009

I went through all the troubleshooting steps in the "Update Available From Sprint" thread, making sure I was on v1.29.651.1, yada yada. Worked on this for a week and a half. Spoke with Sprint, spoke with HTC, no luck. Going to firmware update always reported NO UPDATE AVAILABLE.

Took the phone back to Best Buy and demanded an exchange. After receiving the new phone, went to try to firmware update, it showed that one was available. I asked for my old battery back since it was charged fully so that I could do the update. Put my old battery back in, went to update, NO UPDATE AVAILABLE!
Turns out it was my battery? Put the new one back in and the update was successful. I had scoured the net before but did not notice anyone with this particular issue. I

HTC Desire :: Cannot Upgrade And VM Not Offering Update OTA

Aug 11, 2010

I am new to the andriod platform an i have just got a HTC Desire with Virgin Mobile, PLEASE BE GENTLE.....
It does not seem to be sim locked as i have tried an Orange sim in the phone and it works. I have seen a Desire with Froyo on it and want to upgrade my phone. After trying all the guides on various forums i still cannot upgrade and VM is not offering the update OTA.

when trying the Goldcard method I get error wrong bootloader, when trying with the OTA named update.zip using recovery it also throws up an error and exits. What i have done now is rooted the phone using unrevoked3 method which has worked. i want to have a stock 2.2 phone, not bothered about keeping the root, if i put the OTA update.zip on the sd card (or goldcard as i have created one) and flash using the clockworkmod recovery which is now on my phone will this work or should i update the radio first and will i be able to get OTA updates in future?

Firmware 2.1-update1
Baseband version 32.36.00.28U_4.06.00.02_2
Software number 1.23.351.1
Bootloader 0.80.0000

when it boots it has the VM logo but apart from that there is no other branding on the phone. Obviously i dont want to brick the phone, i have done lots of reading and i am still unsure of how i can get my phone updated.

HTC EVO 4G :: Get Update 2 Weeks Before Upgrade Date?

Jun 28, 2010

I was told several times during Sprint Chat session that I could go into a Sprint Store 2 weeks before my 7/1/2010 upgrade date and get my upgrade on an EVO. So I got put on a waiting list and my phone came in a week before 7/1 but they said there was no way they would do it even if I was told during a sprint chat session that I could. Was the agent on Sprint Chat who told me I could just a complete idiot?

General :: Rejected 4.4.2 Upgrade - How To Get Update Prompt Again

Dec 15, 2013

I was running Android 4.4, rooted and CWM installed. Got a notification for 4.4.2 update being ready (like, a week after upgrading to 4.4), and tapped it. Phone reboots into debug mode to install it, but then CWM starts yelling at me saying this zip I'm trying to install is unsigned.

So I stop the upgrade. Phone reboots back into Android 4.4 and I don't get the update notification icon again.

Two questions:
- will I get the update prompt again? if not, can I do it manually while keeping all my stuff like happened on the 4.4 upgrade?
- is the Android 4.4.2 update really unsigned? is there a danger in accepting it?

I'm not sure what to do now since I didn't have CWM flashed when I did the upgrade to 4.4, which went completely smooth.

2.1 Update :: No Service In Notification Panel When Drag Down After Upgrade To 2.1

Nov 11, 2010

I'm not sure if there is a defect in my update... but upon completion of update, I noticed that when I drag down the notification panel, immediately below the status bar before the notifications, the words "(No service)" is displayed. I do not remember 1.6 having that... but is it suppose to show my network name? I hope someone could enlighten me. It is irritating having those words there not knowing what it means.

Android :: Mobile Application Upgrade / Update Framework

Jun 12, 2010

I am developing a few mobile apps for different platforms including Blackberry, Windows Mobile, Android and Symbian S60.I want my mobile apps to have the capability of checking for updates before starting and in case a new version is available, prompt the user to upgrade. Moreover in certain cases (like security patches), the user must be forced to update or the app won't work.Surely I can cook some code to achieve the task but I was wondering if there are already existing framework to serve the purpose so that I don't have to re-invent the wheel and test all over?

HTC Wildfire :: 2.2 Update Processor Upgrade - Affect Applications?

Aug 7, 2010

I asked my parents for a new phone, specifically a HTC Desire because I'm a gamer so obviously I wanted a phone with an awesome processor. But at the time of my birthday I got a HTC Wildfire (apparently the Desire was sold out at every store my dad went to). Now there's nothing wrong with the Wildfire. The battery life is great and it doesn't take to much space in my pocket but I felt a little bit disappointed when I checked out the market. The games I found were at the same level as the games I had on my old phone, a Sony Ericsson K550i. Also, when I checked Youtube and various other websites for game tips I couldn't find them. For example Buka, Robo Defense, ToonWarz, Speed Forge 3D etc etc. Is this because they are not available for the Wildfire because of the 589 mhz processor? If that is the case, will the maybe be available when the 2.2 update arrives (with the processor speed up)? Or do I need to download them from a specific site because all the games I find on the market are free.

HTC Droid Eris :: Can't Find Apps In Market After Upgrade To Leaked Update

Jan 5, 2010

Had a quick question - Did the update yesterday morning with no issues other than I can not find some of the apps I used prior to the upgrade. I can find them in the market, but when I try to use my phone to download, it can not find them. Note: I used Astro to back up most of my apps on the phone, these couldn't be backed up since they were marked private. And they didn't display in my downloads either after the upgrade. Digital Clock Widget: Silent Time: If I use my friends phone (same version prior to my upgrade), no problem finding these apps. Suggestions? I could always downgrade back to the previous version, but I was having some freezing issues that I hope this upgrade fixed...

Android :: Reverse Geocoding In App

Oct 17, 2010

I am trying to Reverse GeoCode current Lat/Long data to just Admin Area and Sub Admin Area using the Geocoder class.

I am using the NETWORK_PROVIDER as the Location provider. Here is the code that I use and it works. The problem is sometimes it does not give me any location sometimes it does.

Android Manifest permissions I am using.

CODE:.............

Here is the rest of the code that does give me correct location from time to time but nothing at other times.

CODE:..............

Are there restrictions with the network providers how frequently you can request location data?

How can I make sure that everytime its run this can give me valid location data.

Thanks in advance for any insight into this.

PS: I have run this code on my real device running Froyo 2.2 (Verizon Wireless). Target API Level 8.

This is what I got from my debugging.

Latitude Longitude is always fetched but the getFromLocation often returns null for the latitude longitude data passed to it. So what should be the workaround? May be pass the Lat/Long info to Google Maps API for reverse geocoding. Will be glad to receive any input.

Android :: Reverse Tether

Mar 24, 2010

I have a G1 and I now have an app named MapDroid BUT so slow to download the maps. If I could hook up my G1 to a computer at the internet cafe that has a ASDL connection it would go much faster AND I would be able to do something else beside watch the yellow bar slooooooowly move. I am not in the USA. One guy said the best way is buy a Bluetooth drive that looks like a flash drive. Plug it in the PC and my G1 should get internet. Not sure. I think files would work but not sure about internet. If the cable won't work then why should bluetooth?

If it needs to be in the ROM, where would this be changed?

Android :: StartLayoutAnimation In Reverse Order

Aug 18, 2010

Im doing a layout animation on my listview where I fade the list elements into view using a LayoutAnimation with android:animationOrder="normal". It works perfectly fine and the elements are faded into view in top-to-bottom order. However, if I trigger a layout animation twice (eg call startLayoutAnimation before the list view has finished animating its views), the listview performs the new layout animation in reverse order; bottom-to-top.

Android :: Reverse Desktop Tether

Oct 12, 2010

I just got my first Android and love it after having used Win Mobile for years. However, there's one app I just can't seem to find.

I want something like MyMobiler (Windows Mobile - My Mobile)

Instead of accessing my PC desktop on my phone, I was able to FULLY access my phone desktop on my pc (i.e., I could completely operate my phone on my PC which allowed me to type and enter data faster and more accurately).

Does anyone know an app that'll do this (even a non-free app would be great).
I had grown so accustomed to using this application that I will now be lost if I can't find a suitable replacement.

Android :: Reverse Tether Via Bluetooth PAN

Oct 12, 2010

We've been trying to reverse tether (using a SmartQ V5, android version 2.1) to another device that has an Internet connection we want to share. That is to say, the Android device is the client and needs to get access to the Internet through connecting to a Bluetooth PAN network.

We have so far been able to get root access on android, but have had no luck with bluetooth PAN. We found that bluetooth PAN isn't compiled natively in android (at least not in 2.1 or before), and to enable it you'd need to turn them on and compile the OS image yourself. Does this concur with others' understanding?

Has anyone had any luck in compiling an android OS or setting up PAN to do reverse-tethering with another device (say PC)?

Android :: Dex File Be Reverse Engineered?

Dec 24, 2009

I was wondering how safe it is for my apk to be uploaded without being obfuscated. I am kindof in a hurry to upload it on the market and I was thinking of uploading it unobfuscated. I am guessing this is probably how most of the apps are uploaded anyway but I would like to hear people's opinions on this. I haven't searched online for existence of tools that reverse engineer the .dex file the android project creates.
