General :: App To Monitor Disk I/O?

May 19, 2013

I have a couple of devices that have gotten laggy over time, and after installing System Monitor, all evidence points to 100% disk I/O usage. Something is reading/writing to memory constantly, pegging it at near 100%... but that's all I can determine.

Is there a app, or technique I can use that would show per-app I/O usage?

General :: Use S3 As PC Monitor Via USB?

Jan 3, 2013

I work on PCs, desktops, quite often and I don't ask for the monitor. Usually I have to come up with 1 of my monitors drag it out and plug it in in order to simply see the screen.

is there a way for me to run an application on my droid and have it appear to the PC as a monitor that it sees on a USB port?

To be clear, I'm not looking for VNC, RDP, or anything wireless, etcetera. What I am looking for is for my galaxy s3 to appear to the PC as a valid primary monitor for it to boot to. This allows me to see post and the operating system without having to use a large monitor.

in fact, I don't really even care if the phone acts as a touch screen. I can use the mouse or even the keyboard plugged into it I just need the droid to act as a monitor. If, on the other hand, the touch screen was seen as a viable input device, emulating a mouse, then that would just be a bonus.

General :: Can't Get To Connect To Samba Shared Disk

Jul 17, 2013

I cant connect nor find my samba network drive from Android whatsover... I have tried using different apps (ES File Explorer, AndroXplorer and AndSMB), but none of them are able to connect nor to find my shared folders....

On the android client side, I am using anonymous login and I have tried using both the ip address of the samba server in the hostname field and the hostname itself. I also tried with the domain set or empty. I have a Galaxy Nexus with Android 4.2.1

On the server side, I have the following configuration ( add V0BRW3vK to pastebin address -> I cant post links) and I can access it through windows, ubuntu and even through my playstation =D But not with my android device... Therefore, I dont think it is a server issue (unless if Android connects in a different way).

It is also perhaps worth mentioning that my samba server has a static IP and it is not on the DHCP list of the router. However, Im not sure if this should influence something as I'm even trying to access it directly through its IP.

Is there something I need to do in the android device beforehand in order to connect to the network drive? Any hints of what could be going wrong? Most of the issues, I read about it seem to handled in my config and have been discarded due to the fact that I can connect to the shared folder with other devices. The only other thing that comes to my mind now is to either find an open source application that connects to a samba shared folder and run it with logging.

General :: How To Monitor Wake Up Requests

Sep 3, 2013

I have a Google Nexus phone on Verizon and it has recently begun waking up on it's own with no apparent reason. It keeps doing this and kills the battery within an hour or so. It only seems to do this when running on battery. It does not happen while charging.

I wanted to know if there is a way to monitor what process/application is waking the phone up.

I have uninstalled the two apps that I remember installing since the problem began and I'd rather not go through having to uninstall every app to figure out what is causing it!

General :: How To Change Disk Encryption Password Keyboard

Mar 5, 2014

I set a password to encrypt the disk on my N4. When I reboot the phone it ask me a password with a standard keyboard.

My question is : can we change this keyboard for another one or at least its orientation?

the cause is that my screen is broken on the lower right coin and it block the "Done" button. annoying...

The TWRP keyboard to decrypt the disk should be fine (its "done" button is larger enough)

General :: Using Dd For Backup And Restore In Qualcomm Disk Mode?

Jul 28, 2013

I'm using a carrier phone right now, specifically, Smartfren Andromax-U LE. It's packing MSM8625Q (Quad-core Cortex-A5 1.2Ghz), 1GB RAM, 4GB Internal, 8MP camera, 4.5" IPS LCD (540x960, 240 dpi)

Here's what interesting to me, when I searching button combinations to bring me to recovery mode, I found a mode that is supposed to be qualcomm disk mode (Windows suddenly told me to format it, meh), and then I tried to plug it in ubuntu, and there's some disk showing up (including android root, FOTA partition, and many more).

So, I was thinking, can I backup the entire internal memory (all 4GB of it), and then restore it back (in case something's go wrong) with dd command?

General :: Low Disk Space With Motorola Fire Xt311

Oct 12, 2012

A friend of mine has the xt311 motorola fire. It keeps bugging her for low disk space (the internal memory is almost full indeed, and all apps that can be moved to SD have been moved).

After some research, I read that some logs could munch too much space and that by entering the mmi code * # 9 9 0 0 # you get to move the logs to the SD. Unfortunately, the code doesn't work and returns the error "connection problem or invalid mmi code".

The other solution should have to be rooting the phone and partitioning the SD then expanding the internal memory to it with link2sd. But I read about a few problems people are running into with this method. So I would like to know if there's another way to resolve this troubling limitation of the xt311.

General :: Android Device As A Secondary USB Monitor

Jan 3, 2012

So I was poking around the internet and saw the new Lenovo LT 1421 USB portable monitor. URL>....

I found myself intrigued by it and was thinking about getting one as I travel a lot for business and find that not having that second monitor like I have on my desktop at the office is a major point of frustration.

I was looking at it and thinking to myself "man that looks a lot like a tablet." I got to searching the internet for ways to turn an android tablet into a secondary monitor and found Apps like iDisplay and AirDisplay (iPad only) and Screen Slider that work over wifi but those methods all seem to be really slow and laggy. It would be better than what I have for sure but given that I'm often on hotel Wifi and it requires a network connection between devices that leaves me open to some vulnerabilities I would assume.

General :: Backup Of Disk Encryption Master Key - Google Nexus 4

Jan 23, 2013

I have a Google Nexus 4 (rooted, of course) and I'm using the native phone encryption.

There is some information that can be found, revealing that google uses the native linux dmsetup tool for this.

Now, just in case anything goes wrong, I'd like to have a backup of the encryption master-key,
that I could use to restore the dm-crypt header.

On a normal linux system, this would be easy, only one call to dmsetup and I'm done.

However, I just can't find any info to do this on android.'

The UI doesn't offer this option (as is to be expected) and I just don't know how to do it by using adb.

I've opened a root shell session and tried some commands (dmsetup, cryptsetup, some calls to "vdc cryptfs", etc...), but I just don't find a way to do it.

General :: Use Mobile Device To Act As Monitor For Galaxy Note 2?

Jan 15, 2014

I want to use my Galaxy Note 2 as my video camera. Then use a 2nd portable handheld device (like another phone or tablet) to act as a monitor so can see what my Note 2 is filming. I would like to know if this is possible somehow either wired or wireless.

Could I purchase a small portable router like the TP-Link router. Then connect it with usb to my Galaxy Note 2. Then create a wifi connection that a 2nd wifi device can connect to (like an HTC One or tablet). Then use an app of some sort to see what my Note 2 is filming? I have found the team viewer app but I think is only for mobile to pc. how to use a mobile device to act as a monitor for my Galaxy Note 2

General :: WiFi Tethering App With User Data Monitor

Jan 10, 2012

I have been looking for an application which is a more powerful version of the WiFi Tethering already included in a phone.

I have been looking for an application on Xda, Google, and the Marketplace but none I have found provides me with the ability to see individual users (or Mac addresses) data usage.

First a little background on what I am trying to achieve.I regularly provide a WiFi router for people with IPods and devices with wireless but no internet connection who need internet access to update games / browse the internet, and whilst my FUP at 500mb is quite low, I rarely use more than 20mb in a month so it doesn't bother me as beyond 500mb the connection is just limited to text and images (downloads and internet streaming are disabled after 500mb) which is all that I need.

However when my FUP has been exceeded alot of devices cant do the small updates this is no good when games or apps require it (as I have seen a couple even stop working till updates are completed) due to the connection being restricted. I have usually tracked it down to an over enthusiastic user who is watching videos on youtube, which has wiped out 100mb of my usage within 2 minutes on one occasion.

I am running both Android and Windows Mobile on my HD2, Whilst the built in "Portable Hotspot" of Android is good as it lets me restrict the number of users and see the Mac address of connected clients, it doesnt let me monitor their usage and then let me disconnect individual users them from the connection.Whilst im sure there is apps for overall phone usage I am looking to monitor the individual devices usage as with 3-5 devices it is hard to distinct between legitimate usage and constant heavy usage.

Is there any Wifi Tethering app to let me do this?

To summarize:

Wifi Tethering App
Android / Windows Mobile
Shows Client Usage
MAC filtering (or alternatives which allow individual devices to be disconnected)

General :: Android Tablet Monitor With Mouse And Keyboard?

May 6, 2014

I have my desk setup with 2 monitors and an Android Tablet sitting in its dock right next to that. I have been doing some research and found a lot of apps that allow you to use the tablet as a monitor for your computer. But that is not what I want to do. I was wondering if there was a way to setup the tablet so that I could move my mouse over from the monitor onto the tablet and control the Android Tablet with my computer's mouse and keyboard in the Android environment. So this way I can run things like Calendar, Email, Hangouts and other apps with my mouse and keyboard just by moving it over from my main displays like I can between a primary and secondary screen.

General :: Sprint GN2 Running 4.1.2 - Apps To Monitor Power Usage

Nov 21, 2013

I'm wondering about apps that are a little more than battery power monitors. I'd like something that will show me the apps that are running and taking up the most memory and causing the biggest power drains on my phone.

Something that would log this so I could look it over during the week and get an overall view and make decisions on what to keep and what to erase.

I'm thinking something that would show me what apps I used, how long they were running, how much memory they took up, how much battery power was used, etc.

Is there such an app out there? I'm wanting to look at the differences between the free apps and paid apps to see if it makes a difference also.

I'm running a Sprint GN2 currently 4.1.2. I haven't gotten the update yet.

General :: Rikomagic MK802IV - HDMI Monitor Power State

Jan 15, 2014

I have a Rikomagic MK802IV which uses HDMI as its primary output.

I'm looking for a way to detect that the screen attached to the HDMI out has been turned off, or is in sleep mode, either through a command-line tool or a Java app. So far, I've figured out how to detect whether there is something connected by checking the contents of this node in sysfs: /sys/class/display/display0.HDMI/connect

However, this only reports whether something is connected, not whether it's on or off.

I also tried using the isScreenOn() method in Android's PowerManager API to check the power on state, but it always returns true, regardless of whether the screen is on or off.

Does getting the external HDMI's power state is possible on Android?

General :: Jelly Bean Full Disk Encryption Password Altered After Swapping SIM

Sep 1, 2012

I am running Android 4.1.1 on a Samsung GT-I9250M Galaxy Nexus.

Third, I have two carriers: a Straight Talk Unlimited Prepaid SIM (United States GSM/HSDPA) & a Claro Prepaid SIM (Honduras, GSM)

1) I installed the Straight Talk SIM in the phone.
2) I installed the battery in the phone.
3) I powered on the phone.
4) I enabled full disk encryption, choosing an easy-to-memorize password.

... over two weeks, i successfully decrypt the phone on boot 30 - 40 times with the password ...
... then i travel to honduras and purchase a Claro SIM ...

5) I powered off the phone.
6) I installed the Claro SIM in the phone.
7) When prompted to "type password to decrypt storage" I enter the correct password.
8) I am prompted to "try again."
9) I enter the correct password.
10) I m prompted to "try again."
11) I powered off the phone.
12) I installed the Straight Talk SIM in the phone.
13) When prompted to "type password to decrypt storage" I enter the correct password.
14) I am prompted to "try again."
15) I enter the correct password.
16) I am prompted to "try again"

I have tried booting with the Straight Talk SIM, the Claro SIM, and with no SIM. I have tried removing the battery. I am able to boot in Recovery Mode. However, performing a factory reset is not a viable option for me. I need to regain access to my phone. Why would the encryption key be altered by the SIM change? And wouldn't reinstalling the Straight Talk SIM be enough?
