Android :: Barnicle Wifi Tether And Wireless Tether

Sep 26, 2010

I am having issues getting the 2 wifi tethering programs to work correctly. I just rooted for the firstt time today. Both programs start up correctly and allow me to enable to wifi tethering but I can't get any device to see the wifi connection they are creating. I have tried both scanning for the network and trying to manually connect to it by typing in the SSID but I can't get any device to see the network. I am using a Droid X with the official 2.2 update rooted.

HTC Eris :: Wireless Tether - Ad Hoc Connections For Wireless Mouse

May 27, 2010

The main reason i wanted a rooted phone was so i could connect to my laptops ad hoc network and use a program for wireless keyboard and mouse. i cant really afford the real thing at the moment and with my laptop hooked up to my flat screen its kind of necessary to have..

So ive rooted my phone and tried a few roms. currently i have this one: [ROM] [05/18/2010] Tainted Vanilla V1.4 OVERCLOCKED - xda-developers

I always run into the same problem though. wired or wireless, i cant get it to connect right. wired never works in any way but i dont really care about that. wireless however shows some signs of working. it shows some data has been sent, not received though. and my computer will detect and connect to it, but seems to lose the signal after a few moments. when i bring up a browser it doesnt even look like something might load. it just says im offline. could someone help me with this?

The other part of this problem is i really just want to connect to my computers ad hoc network and use a wireless keyboard and mouse program. none of them seem that great unfortunately.. recommendations are appreciated. but my biggest issue is that i cant seem to connect to an ad hoc network. i believe my phone detected it only once while i was on the "white widow" rom, but could never quite connect..

Android :: Permanent Socket Connection Drains Battery

Jul 15, 2010

I am developing an app which has one service running in the background even if the application is closed. This service basically listens to the server via socket connection. It is an app's requirement to keep one consistent connection open. but this drains battery liek anything. I know socket is costly affair in the sense of battery life. Do anybody know any other way to keep communication channel open? or any optimization in using socket?

Android :: Wireless Tether Won't Work

Sep 27, 2010

I have the original Droid. It is rooted with easy root application. I had originially installed 2.2 from a non-ota update site. Rooted my droid and installed wireless tether. It worked great. I then received the OTA update for 2.2 FRG22D. Now wireless tether won't start up. I also tried using Barnacle Wifi Tether and it is getting a permission issue. It won't prompt me to grant superuser permissions to this app. So I need help either getting wifi tether working or figuring out how to grant superuser permissions to Barnacle to get that working.

HTC Droid Eris :: What Drains Battery Most?

May 12, 2010

I'm new here and a new Eris owner had it now for about a week and love it so far.I've read through several of the threads here about the battery and best ways to conserve, and I've tried to apply them (and I appreciate the info I've been able to find here).I'm conditioning the battery now (fully drained/charged it a few times), have set the brightness down lower, turned off bluetooth & wifi, set email checking to 2 hrs rather than 15 minutes.My question is about the effect on the battery of using facebook and peep/twitter as apps running on their own home screen.I have each of these two on their own screen so I can see updates but is this more draining on the battery than instead just having the apps as icons and then opening them up (meaning does this mean they are open all the time and draining battery)? Also, I have 3 email accounts setup but set to check every 2 hrs. Would this be more draining than just 1 email that checks every 30 minutes?

Jun 7, 2010

I have a HTC Magic running the latest version of CyanogenMod 4.The battery was fine on my phone, till yesterday when it started draining within a couple of hours (while on standby). Clearly something is wrong as usually the battery would last most of the day if it was on standby.I thought it was an application, so I uninstalled everything I installed in the last day or so.

This has happened about 2-3 times now since the phone was released.The phone is fully charged before I go to bed and in the morning it's dead since the phone turned off by itself.Also it might explain why during the day, even without use for 2-3 hours it drains for no reason down to ~25%?So weird, anyone else have this problem? I don't have the GPS on.

Nexus :: Battery Drains During Night?

Feb 1, 2010

Anyone know what could be the cause of my battery dying while I'm asleep at night? I don't put it on the charger at night if the battery is above 20% and the last couple nights my battery will be near 30% and when I wake up in the morning it's dead?! My feeds are set to update 12 hours apart which is usually around 7am, and I thought it was the auto task killer but I shut that off. The only thing I can think of is my alarm?! But really?

KitKat 4.4 :: Android 4.4.2 Update On Galaxy Note 3 Drains Battery (1% Every Minute)

Mar 6, 2014

I am on Three UK, and I manually searched for an update for my Galaxy Note 3 today, while on my wireless network. My phone showed that a KitKat 4.4.2 update was available which was approx. 391 MB in size. Downloaded and installed it.

The install worked fine, but after the install, my phone seems to be draining the battery at 1% every minute. I have turned off GPS, wireless, mobile data etc. but to no avail.I don't even have Skype installed on my phone (as Google asked some users to uninstall Skype)

HTC Droid Eris :: Hot Battery - Drains In About 2 Hours

Sep 3, 2010

My battery keeps getting really hot (goes up to 105 degrees) and drains in about 2 hours. I've tried swapping it with a battery from another eris but it still happens so I know it's not the battery. I'm using the eris official v.1 rom. This happened on our other phone when I was using plain Jane rom so I flashed that one to eris official and it works great. I have the app killer set and everything seems to be turned off.

Jul 8, 2010

After updating my Hero to 2.1 I have noticed that the battery drains much quicker now even after I've done all recommended tweaks (switching off Always On, reducing frequency of updates etc.). Has anyone also experienced the same problem. Some people mentioned that battery life of their phones improved after the update.

General :: Battery Drains And Charges Fast?

May 19, 2013

I have 2 batteries for my phone, both of which show the exact same problems. The battery drains very quickly on standby (8 hours or so). It drains when off and if I turn off my phone and remove the battery for about an hour, it loses 10-20% of the battery. A lot of people told me it had something to do with the wakelock or some app but that's not what it is. Wakelock is fine and with stock apps only it still drains way to quickly. Airplane mode doesn't work either. It charges exactly as fast as it drains too.

HTC EVO 4G :: How To Get Wireless Tether?

Jul 14, 2010

I have a stock EVO with the latest OTA update (software version: 1.47.651.1) and it has never been rooted. All I want to do now is be able to use wireless tether (with multiple laptops) via my EVO. What is the easy/best way to achieve this? I know the first thing I need to do is root the EVO. Should I do this using Unrevoked, or using something like SimpleRoot? For my purposes, what's the difference b/t these two methods?

Next, is wireless tether an app that I have to download somewhere? If so, which is the best one (if there are more than one). Or will this feature surface automatically after rooting the phone. Or does it come on some ROM that I need to flash? And finally, what is this Radio/WiMax patch thing that everyone is trying to put on their phone?

Android :: Wireless Tether Not Working - Phone Rooted

Oct 16, 2010

I rooted my Eris and I am running KaosFroyo v37. I downloaded Wireless Tether, and its not working. Its broadcasting that it made an available wireless access point, but when I try to connect to it nothing happens. My computer wont link up to it. I know my WiFi card works because I have a working wireless access point where I live that I use every day with no issues. Its like my laptop sees the network, but wont associate with it. I tried using barnacle and it did the exact same thing.

Samsung Vibrant :: USB Connection Drains Battery Fast

Aug 16, 2010

I got my Samsung Vibrant yesterday and like it a lot. However, I have what I thought was a faulty battery problem. The battery would not charge when hooking it up via USB to my desktop or AC.I took the phone to the Tmobile store and they swapped out the battery for me. The battery runs fine unplugged but as soon as I plug in the USB adaptor it starts losing a % of charge every 10 secs. As soon as I unplug it the draining stops. I called the Tmobile store again and they said it may be the USB adaptor. Well, I have a spare cable. I used it and the same thing happens.Is there something wrong with my phone? Is there a setting I need to adjust? Anyone experienced this yet?

Sprint HTC Hero :: Battery Drains Exceedingly Quickly

Aug 31, 2010

So yesterday was the first day I used my Hero "officially". I took it off the charger at about 10am and by around 7:30pm it had about 20% left. Not fantastic, but it seemed ok. Last night, I charged it via USB (forgot the charger part) and this morning when I went to take it off the charger, I noticed it was completely dead. I switched it over to another USB cable and after a minute or so, I was able to boot it up and get it going again. I was only able to let it charge for about an hour before I had to leave and go to class, so when I took it off this morning it was around 52%. I didn't do much with it on the way or during class, simply tried stream a little music via subsonic (only for about 10-15 minutes) and sent maybe two text messages. Getting to class (the phone had been off the charger about an hour at this point) I was already at 46% and by the end of class I was at 22%. A quick trip to Wal-Mart for a spare charger and the battery was below 10%. From taking it off the charger to finishing at Wal-Mart was about a span of 2:30 hours. Draining over 40% of my battery in a couple of hours when the phone was mostly idling with the screen off seems absolutely ridiculous. I have the phone overclocked with SetCPU which is set to go from 245 to 710 when it's above 30% and when it's below, it clocks itself down to something like 195 and 490. When the screen is off, it's 125 or so to 245. About midway through class I killed SetCPU just to see if that was my problem, but it didn't appear to be as my battery seemed to drain just as quickly. I don't use a task killer extensively, only to check what applications are running in the background and maybe kill something that won't shut down. But, when I did check, after Wal-Mart, I had an application called "My Uploads" running. I wasn't sure what that was, but I left it running anyway.

HTC Incredible : Com.htc.launcher Crashes / Rapidly Drains Battery

Nov 17, 2010

Normally I wouldn't worry, but when it does crash, and I'm not paying attention to my phone, it suddenly sucks the battery big time. If it happens overnight while I'm sleeping, the battery will be dead. I just checked my phone now; last check was about 2 hours ago, it was at 90-odd percent, and now it's at 55% and com.htc.launcher is asking to be force closed. I check my battery usage, and sure enough, it's the culprit. My phone is also very hot, perhaps because it's overusing the battery. I want to avoid a factory reset. Is there any solution or known cause for this problem?
