General :: How To Increase WiFi Power On Mediatek Phones

May 16, 2013

I've been looking for a way to increase wifi power on Mediatek phones (that are well known for having poor wifi reception).

I found two files:

Those two are unable to modify tx-power on wlan0. (iwconfig wlan0 txpower 32)


wlan0 Disconnected ESSID:""

Encryption key:off
Power Management period:2
Link Quality:0 Signal level:0 Noise level:0
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0

Also I found this :



how to change that txpower value ? Is there anything to do in init.rc ?

General :: THL200 Mediatek MT6592H CPU Frequency Change

Apr 4, 2014

I have successfully rooted my T200 via Farmaroot, and got some utilities like cpuset on it to check for frequency.

On the Octocore MT6592, I notice some unique things:

In any other setting than hotplug, and utilizing the cfq scheduler the phone underperforms with Antutu benchmark with any other setting.

Both my min and max frequency at set at 1663.

The phone runs the stock build:
Android 4.2.2
Kernel 3.4.49
thl.T200.158A.20140221.JB9.FHD.EN.COM.16P256_MT659 W_V2.0.13

However, reading through the mediatek's website for the chipset, it appears it can handle a max frequency of 2Ghz. For testing purposes I'd like to set that. And give it a try.

I'm about to flash my B92M (SIII Clone) MT6577 but I need to make sure that I have everything set up. This is my first time flashing a phone and I don't want to mess it up.

So basically I'm having trouble installing the MediaTek DA USB VCOM Driver and I'm not even sure if I'm trying to install the right one. How do I go about installing this? And download link for one that supports MT6577 or does the MT6575 one work with it?

Motorola Droid :: Best Countdown Timer? (Cooking And Poker Games)

Jan 6, 2010

Anyone have experience with a good countdown timer that works well with Droid? I think I downloaded the "Ultimate Stopwatch" once and it didn't work well (The alarm sound was way too soft). There are dozens of timer apps, and it seems people have various problems with all of them, aside from maybe a few pay ones. But I just want something really simple. Just for timing things like cooking stuff in the oven and poker games. Any suggestions?

General :: Extracting And Editing OBB Files?

Jul 24, 2013

how to extract an .obb file so that one can edit the contents. In my other thread [URL] where I was trying to figure out a way to activate the Japanese vocal track in Final Fantasy IV with the game's locale in the US/English. I've hit an impasse as I've been able to deduce that the Google play version of the game (which seems to have a 15mb .apk, and a 400+mb .obb ) retains the Japanese audio track but only plays it in conjunction with JP text if the Android locale/language is Japanese. Thus, I figure that somewhere in that .obb there will be the JP audio track file which I can copy over the English audio track file and thereby access Japanese audio w/ English text since SquareEnix didn't give us the option for some god-awful reason.

However, the only way this can work is if I can get into that .obb file! I saw links elsewhere on the forum suggesting that all I had to do was rename the .obb to a .zip or .rar, and then use 7zip or WinRAR to open it, but attempts with both programs and numerous file types (.zip, .rar , .tar etc..) all report that the file is not an archive and thus cannot be opened. This is different from the .apk file, which easily seems to (upon rename to zip) unveil its secrets with 7zip extraction. So, does an program or method necessary to unpack/extract/read/edit an .obb file besides the simple archive rename? Is there some Android development program or function?

General :: Editing Apps With APKTool?

May 2, 2014

I have been playing with apktool to learn how apps are made. Decompiled following the guide from this forum.

However I can't find what I'm looking for in the apps. For example, it's easy to edit the drawable folders of the apps and change the images.

I took some apps that gather feeds from news sites and I tried to find where are the feeds URLs coded or embedded inside the apps files, and could not find any info at all. No URLs at all. I opened the XMLs, and other files inside res, lib or smali folders, opened a lot of the files with Notepad++ and I can't find any information about it, or any place where the app connects to the website.

Is it possible to access that info when we decompile with apktool?

I also watched a lot of videos in YouTube, on how to edit apps with apktool, and all of them explain how to change the images, but nothing else.

Is it only possible to edit the theme/design of an app, when we decompile with apktool? Or can we go further and change something else?

General :: Making And Editing Video?

Jul 22, 2012

I've been out of the game for a while when it comes to making videos and editing them. I stopped fooling around with the hobby about eight years ago because it was such a hassle at the time, Sony handycam, the micro tapes, play the movie to put it on the computer, then edit it and put it in what was the thing then "mpeg4".

Will I bought myself a droid x two years ago and was gonna take up the hobby then but technology has come so far since eight years ago and the thought just scares me. Now I have a razr maxx, and i wanna start making videos, what kind of software would you suggest, what formats of videos are there now?

I feel that a cell phone would make the quality videos I'm interested in, it much better than my old Sony handycam

Here is the com.cyanogenmod.cmparts_preferences.xml line's:
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8' standalone='yes' ?>
<boolean name="pref_trackball_wake" value="true" />
<string name="pref_install_location">0</string>

General :: Cursor Control For Editing Typos?

Jan 2, 2012

I don't know if this is an android problem or more device related. All I know for certain is that its one giant headache. I thought it was just a matter of getting used to a different keyboard feel and figured I'd give it a while.

But its been several weeks now and its still Many times if its just a minor typo I'll just leave it rather than go through the torture of editing it.

The main problem is that it cannot be placed with precision. If you try it just jumps around from back to forth and line to line.

I know I'm used to the way it works on iPhone where you can get it approx near where you want it and them just press down firmly to move it to the precise place you want it.

Its impossible for me to do that with this cursor so I have to keep taking multiple stabs at it and hope for the best. I have pretty small hands and fingers and am obviously quite used to online keyboatds. But this thing is driving me nuts.

Am I the only one with this problem? Or is there just some little trick or technique of which I'm totally I the dark about?

General :: Editing Update File To Root LG Spectrum?

Feb 8, 2012

When going from 3.02 to 4.04 on the Spectrum, the phone pulls an updated file. The update file is this: (remove the spaces in the link. I don't have a high enough thread count to post links yet)


The file itself can be opened with WinRAR, but shows that it was signed by SignAPK.

My question is this, What should I theoretically need to do in order to inject root into this so that when the update runs on the phone, it adds SU to the system directory with the correct permission settings?

General :: Making / Editing Custom ROMs Using Linux

Mar 18, 2013

My ideal place to get to is to eventually provide the community here with custom roms and mods which everyone can enjoy on their devices, just like what all the greats devs do here day in day out.... but before I get there, I'm on a path of discovery. At the minute, I want to take a XDA dev's already pre worked ROM, go in to it and change a few things up.... edit the apps, maybe play with a few apks, change the ringtones etc, and then resign the ROM and flash it to my device.

I've been reading some great tutorials such as [URL] ..... which I am finding very useful, however....

They seem to be geared towards someone working on a windows machine. I dont want to do it in Windows, I want to do it in Linux... I dont wish to use "CygWin" and I would rather do it manually than use a kitchen - I could easily follow these guides in Windows and achieve my stated aim of a slightly modified custom ROM, however, the overall goal here is to acquire knowledge, and enjoy the process as it goes along.

Now, my current understanding under Linux (Mint 13) is that I can download a recovery flashable Zip, go in to it, and just change up some of the files as I desire.... but then I get confused when it comes to repackaging the ROM prior to flashing it to my device. How would I go about doing this?

General :: Viewing / Editing And Saving Lens Blur Photos

May 2, 2014

After I take a lens blur photo using the Google Camera app, I can swipe to the right to view the photo and adjust the blur. After I select "done," the photo updates with my blur options. However, when I exit the camera and view this photo using Google Photos, the lens blur options I chose are not there and it's not possible to edit the lens blur. It seems I have to open the camera and swipe right in order to see the lens blur effects.

-Can I only adjust lens blur options within the camera app itself?
-Can I only view the lens blur effects within the camera app?

if seems this is a waste of the lens blur feature. After I make adjustments to the blur and select done, that's the image that should be saved and viewable by Google Photos, Gallery, and backed up to Google+.
