HTC Desire :: Newbie Needs To Switch ROM

Jul 20, 2010

Tried a bit of a buggy ROM and not happy with the outcome.Now, I followed the very helpful guide for one-click rooting to add the new ROM but I wanna switch to the LeeDroid 1.4 release now so what do I need to do? I'm thinking a complete wipe would probably be best so gonna format my backed-up SD card as well and partition it for a2sd+ but can anyone just run me quickly through what I need to do with ClockworkMod etc. to scrub off the old ROM and install the new one pretty please?

I'm soon to be getting my first android phone, htc desire on t-mobile UK (so from what ive heard it will be branded), i will be rooting it and ideally a custom rom. im happy with the rooting process (done quite a bit of modding with consoles), im just at a loss with custom roms for it at the minute, if anyone could suggest one that would suit my needs it would be awesome.

Im after a fairly similar to stock, idealy 2.2, but with some performance tweaks, im after:
-HTC sense
-a2sd
-the ability to overclock (and ideally auto underclock settings when in sleep mode)
- battery performance tweak

and also what is the difference in omoled vs slcd screens when it comes to custom roms and rooting, and also just generally in day to day use? are there any differences in quality, display etc?

and also whats the best os for rooting, roms etc? i mainly use a mac but also have xp, vista, 7 and linux. i understand theres no software currently for mac? and id rather stay away from 7 if at all possible (my copys not that stable) all help would be greatly appreciated, and i hope this is in the right forum

HTC Desire : Need To Delete Google Account / Newbie Tips?

Aug 20, 2010

I've got my desire today and am already frustrated because there's so many things needing to be sorted on it! I've started from scratch with the 7 welcome screens and need to build those up (any tips much appreciated 4 example how to get the wi-fi switch etc etc back)

As for syncing my contacts Facebook has mucked everything up. Any chance i can stop info being taken from facebook and just importing them myself?
Also i set up a google account but had to delete it immediately (on my pc due to the email address being entered wrong) Now I've set up a new one how the hell do i change it on the phone.My phone still thinks I'm using the one I've deleted.

Android :: Releasing Resources In OnDestroy

Aug 20, 2010

I understand that the system may kill the activity without calling onDestroy(). Say I have a MediaPlayer that runs even when it's not visible, I would be releasing the player in onDestroy() method.Now, if the system decides to kill the activity after calling onPause() and never called onDestroy(), what does it mean for my MediaPlayer? Is it ever released? This is bigger problem for Camera since I think it requires to be released for other activities to use it.

Android :: Releasing Updates To App / Is It Patching Or Replacing?

Oct 26, 2010

If I publish an update to my app on the Android Market, will the app only "patch" (or only update changes to current application) or will it just replace the old application with the updated one?The reason is because for my app I need the user to retain some information (such as a database) on their phone that is gathered from the user on the app's first setup and not have to ask the user to repopulate this data on every update.

Android :: Request To Google And Releasing Paid App From Different Country

Nov 5, 2009

I am planning to release my app (which i have been pllanning to do so for quite a few time now, waiting for the expansion of google checkout to happen).I am from India and I am planning to release the application using my friends UK Bank account.Is this advisable? Are there any things that I should take care of?Also is there any chance of google expanding the google checkout or in introducing new payout options like paypal?I have been waiting for the support for quite sometime and I am very much depressed on the issue that google is still not expanding the services, ive sent numerous mails to them asking for atleast the estimated release date but in vain.

Its been nearly an yeaar since android is relmore than an year since android phones have been released and still there is such slow progress. iPhones allows developers from most of the countries to publish their apps and customers from any country can buy the same, i think they can even do it through itunes.I think this is going to hurt the progress and development of android big time. If apple can do it why not google? I have been expecting some response from google atleast on the estimated date, so that we can plan accordingly.

Android :: Releasing Demo Application From Paid Version - Fork Code?

Jun 4, 2009

We have a paid app in the market place, we would like to release a demo of the paid app. I was hoping we could just recompile w/ the same package name, but apparently that does not work. I have tried manually changing package name etc, but it is a chore, and it seems that several things that automatically happen in eclipse cause more harm than good when renaming the package name. Which brings me to my next question. If having a new package name is the only way to accomplish this. Is there an easy way to fork the paid app, where keeping the changes synchronized is easier? Some kind of Source Control?

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Releasing Mini Display For Android 2.0 Phones And Higher

Sep 28, 2010

Sony Ericsson's Mini Display For Android Phones Looks Like An iPod Nano.It says it will available in Q4 this year.Possible motive for delaying the update? Probably not.But the 2.1 update will most likely come out in Q4 because in my opinion, why release an accessory for your phone that won't even work >.>But this seems kinda pointless unless your phone is on silent or is in a backpack/purse where you can't hear it.

HTC EVO 4G :: Releasing Firmware Update For 30FPS Cap

Jun 20, 2010

I ran across this great forum post over at xda developers forum, and they are encouraging us to send HTC emails to tell them to release the firmware update for the phone to fix the 30FPS cap which would be great because then there would be nothing holding developers back from making great apps for the phone, and the phone itself will run better too... According to the last update on the OP's post from June 14th, the update is coming but let's continue to write into HTC so they'll send it out asap!Source: Evo capping all graphics to 30FPS:The reason why graphics performance sucks right now - xda-developers

Android :: Newbie / Upload Photos From HTC Incredible To PC?

May 3, 2010

I've taken several photos on my HTC Incredible and want to upload them to my PC. I tried using the Hard drive function but when I look in the file manager on my PC desktop, I don't see any folders containing the photos I just took. They're in the phone, honest, just can't upload them. How do I do it? I even downloaded a file manager (Astro?) from the droid store but it had dozens and dozens of folders and I have no clue. The manual says photos I take are stored on the sim card so I even tried taking that out, putting it into the SanDisk adapter and plugged that into a multiple card reader and still couldn't find the photos. Where the hell are they?

Android :: Help A Newbie Learn Eclipse / Debugging Best Practices

Jul 25, 2010

I am a newbie to Android and the Eclipse development environment and would like some advice on best practices for debugging my apps when they throw a Force Close.I have researched ADB, however, I can not get this to interact with my phone even though I have explicitly turned debug mode to true on my test handset.Obviously Android comes with a LOG method which I have seen utilized in many example apps, can someone please explain how to review these logs quickly and how to setup logging appropriately to determine the cause of a Force Close (always occurs when I push the Home button).Any advice on debugging effectively in Eclipse would be much appreciated!

Android :: What To Do Before Releasing Application On Android Market Place?

Jul 8, 2010

I just wrote a little game for droid. I was thinking I would put some put some adds in it and release it for free and maybe I'd make a buck or two.I'm wondering what I need to do before I sign up for this.First, I live in Canada. I assume there might be some sort of problem getting paid from the US?I do not have a company. Can I just make up a name to use for now, and if I start making money then I can register the company name and get a business licence later? (Claiming any profits as personal income on my taxes until I do, of course.)

HTC EVO 4G :: Newbie / Way To Turn Screen Back On?

Jun 17, 2010

I'm a former Palm Pre user who recently purchased a Sprint Evo. Although I miss the hard keyboard, I'm learning to use swype. I have a newbie question. Is there anyway to turn the screen back on, once it has turned off, other than pressing the on button. On my Pre, all I had to do was slide the keyboard to turn the screen back on. The Evo's power button is difficult to press, especially using the phone with one hand. Looking forward to any answers. Maybe there is a program that will turn the screen back on when I shake the phone?
